  • 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!"

  • 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!"

  • 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."

  • 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."
