  • 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."

  • AMAZING Trip

    "Blessed to spend a week in paradise with my fians! The Great House Villa certainly lived up to all the hype I had read on these reviews. As mentioned by many - Cathryn was great to work with and Saga was awesome. Saga stopped by every day to make sure we had everything we needed. It was our first time to the Virgin Islands and I can’t imagine a better location. The peacefulness and beauty of Jost east side is perfection. This combined with the dinghy, is really the key to the perfect blend of relaxation and amazing adventures . With calm seas each day we were able to visit each of the places Cathryn points out in her day trip ideas (Bubbly pool, Great Harbour, White Bay, Sandy Spit, Sandy Cay). We loved them all - hard to pick out a favorite! It’s hard to add to what others have said - the grounds of the house are gorgeous - sweeping views, beautiful gardens, starlit nights - gosh, I really miss it! The interior of the house is wonderfully decorated throughout and really does have all the amenities - topped off by amazing views from every room (even the bathrooms!).The plunge pool and outdoor showers were a perfect complement to the tropical weather. I can't even express all of my gratitude to Kathrn and will be back very soon!"

  • Breathtaking!!!

    "Staying at The Makere House and cottage was like staying in absolute paradise. The views from the house were just breathtaking. The accommodations and the amenities were perfect. Tina was SOOO very helpful when it came to our travel plans. Mobbise the property manager was also very quick to help us with any questions we had. The house was spotless and had everything we needed for our 9 day stay. We plan on going back agin and this time bringing our family. Brewers Bay is a 5 minute drive, beautiful and no crowds. Cane Garden Bay, which is the view from the house had great restaurants, a few small markets and plenty of places to relax. Island hopping is a must, we really enjoyed White Bay on Jost Van Dyke, and the Baths and Devils Bay on Virgin Gorda. I highly recommend The Makere House and cannot wait to visit again. T"

  • 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 !"
