  • 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 Views in a Zen Like Atmosphere

    "The online pictures of Villa Towanda on VRBO don't do it justice because the property has a serene feel and vibe (with just the right touch of Indonesian charm) that simply can't be captured in still photos. The roads up to the property are steep and the location would be difficult to find on your own, so we definitely needed to meet the manager at Long Bay Beach Resort to follow him up. Definitely rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle! We loved the outdoor/indoor living spaces typical in the Caribbean. The management team is very responsive and great to work with. The kitchen and living/dining rooms were under the terrace cover and flowed outside right to the pool. The villa has three self enclosed "suites" consisting of a bedroom and bathroom that are all of approximately equal size...two are stacked (upstairs/downstairs) and the third is upstairs but separated from the other two with an incredible view and outdoor shower. The main problem with the property is that the bedrooms are not air conditioned (and easily could be) and the fans are not sufficient to keep you cool at night with the mosquito nets down (and the electricity sometimes going out at night to turn your fan off). Other than the lack of A/C, it was a perfect stay in a perfect setting."

  • I cried...

    "I'm an architectural designer and I see a lot of beautiful homes. When I walked down the stairs and entered Cooten House however, I literally shed tears of joy. It's more than just one of the most beautiful spots on this planet, it's a real home. The space is magical for it's simplicity, privacy and style. Well done Marija and Jeremy! I can't believe you are willing to share such a special space. Thank you!!! I will forever remember what it felt like to sit on the deck with a book and a cup of coffee, enveloped in complete privacy, looking out at the sea down below me. Absolute Peace and Perfection! And as we left... I cried again."

  • Loved our stay at this amazing property

    "Cielo was simply the best. You will not believe your eyes every time you look over Cane Garden Bay. It's so serene and the sunsets are stunning too. The booking process was very easy. Nancy was always prompt and sent along a ton of useful information to help plan our trip. We rented 3 of the 5 bedrooms and that was probably the hardest part of our stay: deciding which rooms to pick! The main living space of the house is open-air. We loved being able to open all the shutters, put on music and hang out by the pool. Our stay included a midweek cleaning and that was a very nice touch. Towels and bathrooms tend to get messy pretty quickly on vacation. Cielo was a highlight of our trip to Tortola and I would highly recommend it."
