  • "Just right", and SUPERB service

    "After making the decision to pay the scandalously high holiday-week airfares, we were looking to economize on accommodations. Da Blue House was a great fit for our needs. The cottage is modest, but has all the basic needs covered, including air conditioners in the two bedrooms. We loved that it was in a real neighborhood, not a tourist ghetto. We spent time reading and relaxing on the front porch and in the hammock, with gorgeous sea views just across the road (seawall, not beach). It was a great base for exploring the north shore beaches, and handy to restaurants with stunning views. Best of all was the service provided by Sam, Sharlene, and JC. From our first correspondence on, our questions and concerns were addressed by email and then in person on Tortola. We have rented holiday homes many times, and never have we had friendlier, more helpful service!"

  • Shimmering Palms

    "What a wonderful time we had while visiting Tortola. We were fortunate to wake up every morning to what might be the most beautiful view on the island. Artisticat Charters helped us navigate our way to the best snorkeling we've ever experienced and although the villa is on the side of a mountain, it is only about a 10 minute walk or two min. drive to the beach. JC met us upon our arrival and made sure we were familiar with the property, and offered names of restaurants, etc. Our favorite restaurant was Da' Coal Pot. The ribs were "amazing". The Villa was very clean and has a full kitchen minus dishwasher. The washer and dryer were a great plus but are down a flight of steps just outside the living quarters. That is also how you get to the third bedroom. Don't forget the view from the oversized deck or from the second floor balcony, at night, a thousand stars stretched across the sky, and the sunrise is breathtaking."

  • Beautiful property. Well maintained and taken care of. Very nice open area and private bedrooms.

    "Great experience. Jon is a very friendly and hospitable host who took care of us from beginning to end of our stay. He has great recommendations for activities as well. The terrain is rugged getting up to the place but the view is worth it. Good driving access to a great beach at Smugglers Cove. We really enjoyed our stay."

  • Cane Garden Bay Cottages

    "We are just wrapping up two weeks at Cane Garden Bay Cottage ...this places is nothing short of spectacular and Sam and Sharlene, who managed our stay were absolutely the best from the beginning to the sadly approaching end of stay on Sunday...but not yet! We have decided to come back next year...again on the off season...but for three weeks instead of two. It is that good! July/early August in Cane Garden Bay is cooler than our place in Florida. The cottage is well laid out, well maintained and very convenient for the most beautiful beach in the Caribbean...Cane Garden Bay. The people of Cane Garden Bay....a village of families...are welcoming and every morning walk is full of greetings and good mornings. We were struck by the many local families who bring their children every day to swim in this beautiful bay with crystal clear water. The kids have so much fun. Did I mention the sunsets from Cane Garden Bay over Jost Van Dyke. We snorkeled 6 BVI spots with a a guide recommended by Sharlene...Captain Deb...and we, who are long time Caribbean Amphibians agreed it was the best snorkeling we've ever done anywhere in the Caribbean...from Hawk Billed Turtles to Nurse Sharks to phenomenal coral and millions of every manner and size of tropical reef fish. We travelled all over the BVI...from the top of Sage Mountain to the Baths and Devils Bay in VG, which was all superb...but were always happiest to come back the CGBC...to sit under a Sea Grape Tree on the beach or on our well covered porch during a tropical rainstorm, which never seem to last that long. Like I said, the cottage comes with everything you need and Riteway in Road Town is pretty well stocked and there is is their wholesale/bulk outlet next door for caseloads of important things like Coco Lopez, Rum, Orange Juice, Pineapple Juice and Nutmeg. You need a car and at first look, Tortola's roads are daunting....suggest a 4-wheel drive if you want to do Brewer's Bay...a must....but the driver's are very polite and you soon learn the protocols. Cottage WiFi is highly reliable and multi-channelled, and if the power goes out...this is the Caribbean...the generator kicks in....but when in doubt Sam and Sharlene were their with suggestions and solutions. Hate to be going back to our beautiful Gulf Coast beaches, but it starts the clock to come back to Cane Garden Bay Cottage ...IRIE!"
