About Craig Corser
I live in Alberta, Canada. I am involved in secondary wood manufacturing, elk farming and organic food production. My wife Kelly and I, have been married for 32 years. We have three adult children and three grandchildren. We all love Tortola and Cane Garden Bay.
Craig Corser purchased this Cottage in 1979
Why Craig Corser chose Tortola
This property was originally purchased and developed by an uncle and eleven other 'cockeyed optimists' from Alberta, Canada, in 1979. My father bought out eight of these twelve in 1990 and upgraded the property. I got involved soon after and have been managing the property for about 20 years. We have continuously improved the property, including a full renovation in 2013.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are located at the quiet end of Cane Garden Bay, literally steps from the beach and a short level walk to everything you need. Our property is 1.75 acres and is unique in that we have a large, lush private yard, shaded by coconut palms and almond trees. There are hammocks to relax in and high speed wireless for your convenience. There is a tiny, family run bar and general store right next door. Rental cars are available locally. We did a full renovation of the property in October of 2013. We added a 14' x 18' gazebo to the yard. The gazebo houses a charcoal grill and tables. With four rental units (see VRBO Listing #'s 357970, 914871, and 914875 for details on the other three units) and a large private yard, we are a great place for family vacations, weddings and business meetings.

Lovely Cottage by the Beach
My husband and I loved this cute little cottage by the beach. It was clean, comfortable, and just the right amount of space for two people. The beach and nightlife were steps away so we didn’t have to take taxis unless we were going to Road Town. Sharlene was so helpful and gave us some good suggestions for how to get around and where to eat. Highly recommend!
Cane garden bay cottage
Cute clean cottage near the beach! Very colorful decor and had all that we needed . They provided cooler, beach chairs and umbrella. The pictures make the units look larger than they are and the beach depicted wasn’t exactly what it looked like ( maybe it was pre hurricane Irma) Nice to have plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from within walking distance. Only downsides were the air conditioning was only in the bedroom and it was warm with little breeze when we were there. Also there are free roaming chickens on the property that like to crow during the night! There is also a cemetery right across the street before you get to the beach . Not really what I was expecting. Overall it was a nice place for the price.
Glad to hear Kim enjoyed her stay at The Cottages! Each Cottage has two 600 ft2 rental units, side by side. The covered deck in front is divided for privacy. We provide everything you need to be comfortable, and to enjoy the beach, which is just steps away from the property through Mongoose Lane.
The chickens are wild and are quintessential Caribbean. They do crow back and forth across the Bay in the early dawn, which many guests find charming. They do keep our yard clear of mosquitoes and other insects!

Perfect place to enjoy Cane Garden Bay BVI.. An adorable carribean cottage, with lovely layout. nice and private, close to a great beach for swimming, restaurants, music, grocery store, even a laundromat if needed.
Great Getaway Spot in CGB
I have been visiting the BVI for over 40 years, and have spent a lot of time there on sailboats and on land. Cane Garden bay is my favorite community on Tortola. Everyone is so friendly and relaxed, and you feel as though you are among friends instantly. There is a decidedly funky and comfortable vibe there and the CGB Cottages fit right in. The cottage is right across the street from the beach, and is set well back from the road on an expansive lawn framed with palms. The appointments are quite comfortable, and not fussy or extravagant, which is perfect for beach life - you're not afraid to track a little sand in at the end of the day. There's a perfectly adequate kitchen which we used to cook some lovely dinners - we ate at home mostly and it was very enjoyable. The caretakers were very attentive and sweet. My last BVI trip was a few months before Irma, and I had heard some very sad stories about the devastation from numerous friends who live on Tortola. I was so happy to see how the BVI communities have come together to rebuild and carry on. The island infrastructure was pretty much completely back in working order, food stores and services were all fully up and running, and there were several restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. All in all I'd say it was exactly what we were looking for, and I will definitely be back for my next land-based trip to the BVI!
A wonderful experience! The cottage is charming, clean, well-equipped, and the service attentive.
In the context of Tortola, this can’t be beat. Cottage is super-charming, newly renovated since Irma, immaculately clean and equipped with all one needs for a beach get-away. Kitchen facilities are more than adequate, appliances work well, bedroom has a/c for those who need it. Ceiling fans throughout. Water heater works well. Lighted, covered outdoor grilling facility, as well as beach chairs, beach towels and cooler.
Can’t say enough about the attentive service. When the microwave stopped, Patty Ann had us a new one in a couple of hours!
And all literally just steps from Cane Garden Beach, certainly among the most beautiful on Tortola. The photos don’t convey just how close you are to the water.
Of course, this is the tropics, and so little critters do come calling. We had a slight issue with ants, but that’s par for the course, and certainly not enough to dampen our enthusiasm.
We’d certainly come back!
Perfect place to stay in Cane Garden Bay!
Great location and comfortable accommodations in Cane Garden Bay. Across the street from the legendary beach and easy walking distance to restaurants, bars and grocery store. Staff very helpful and accommodating. Definitely recommended for those looking to alternative to hotels in a prime BVI location.
