  • Beautiful villa near Long Bay

    "If you're looking for a lovely villa within walking distance to Long Bay and Smuggler's Cove, then Shimmering Palms is an excellent choice. The villa is situated on a gentle slope but not at the top of the hill making walking to the beach an easy option while still offering spectacular views of Jost Van Dyke and beyond! The kitchen is well equipped and even includes spices and seasonings and other essentials for cooking. The interior décor is fresh and in excellent condition. I like that there was a landline in the villa -- we used that instead of our cell phones to reserve activities in Tortola and neighboring islands. Long Bay/Belmont Estates is a very safe neighborhood. Of course the personal touch of Sam and Sharlene made all the difference!"

  • Wonderful Spot !!!

    "My wife and I stayed at the Van Dyke House June 4-11, 2016 for our 10 Year Anniversary and had a wonderful stay. The view from the house is fantastic ! I have nothing but great things to say about the Van Dyke House. AC in Bedrooms and Dining areas worked well. Pool was fantastic ! The house was close to everything and very private. We explored Long Bay, Smugglers Cove, Brewers Bay, Cane Garden Bay, and Rogues Bay on Tortola. Rogue's Bay was challenging to get to but well worth the effort ! Saw Lobster and eels at Brewers Bay. I highly recommend Brewers Bay and Rogue's Bay for those who are looking for a more private beach. We also took a day sail with Captain Luke on the Lion Heart Sail Cat (one of the Aristocat boats out of Road Town). I would highly recommend this trip ! We sailed to Salt, Cooper and Peter Islands. Snorkeled and dove on the wreck of the Rhone and saw everything... Barracuda, Tarpon, Turtles, Sting Rays and more ! We ate at most of the local restaurants. Our favorites were Sebastian's at Long Bay (Fish, Lobster and Rum were fantastic) , Bananakeet, Myett's at Cane Garden Bay. We also took day trips to Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke. We got to meet Foxy and enjoyed his Rum drinks and ended up at The Soggy Dollar Bar for some fun in the sun and Pain Killers. The trip could not have been any better ! We just didn't want to leave. Sam and Sharlene were very helpful with the house questions and jeep rental. I recommend a 4WD Vehicle if you plan to really explore Tortola ! We can't wait until we return !"

  • Perfect for families or groups of friends......Gorgeous views

    "Our family of 6 recently spent 8 terrific days in The Murray House on Tortola. Murray is in the West End and overlooks the gorgeous Long Bay beach. There is a huge family room where we would play games and relax in front of the TV in the evening. A very well appointed kitchen which we appreciated, complete with dishwasher and washer/dryer set. The lay out is great for groups and allows everyone to have privacy as well. There are multiple levels which allowed for multiple balconies and views. A large dining table and grill were great for us all to dine together right by the pool. And chairs and other tables around the property were nice to have available as well. Every room is screened so you can have the fans on with a nice tropical breeze and still feel like you are out of doors. The bedrooms were all air conditioned so sleeping was comfortable. Sam and Sharlene were fantastically helpful before and during our stay. They answered tons of questions and Sharlene met us at the ferry dock and escorted us to The Murray House. It really was the perfect place for us for a wonderful vacation to the BVI'S. The first of many I hope!"

  • Family travel

    "Our stay at Moonstone was wonderful! The villa was just as advertised ... the villa was clean and in great shape, the views are spectacular, the furniture comfortable and even had weekly cleaning service. There were towels for the bathrooms and the beach, dishes and cookware, an outdoor gas grill, water bottles already filled when we arrived..... we made many trips to the local West End marina grocery store and made dinner every night at the villa. Sam and Sharlene were extremely helpful and available when we had questions, and Sharlene met us at the ferry to take us to the villa so we could find it! The north side location was good for visiting the beaches and snorkling, and convenient to reach Road Town and West End."
