  • BVI June 2016

    "We returned to Summer Heights as the location is wonderful for us a couple of doors away from my cousin and to enjoy the peace and serenity of the BVI and magical views. We were celebrating our daughters 21st Birthday and therefore wanted everything to be special. Indeed it did not disappoint Everything in the Villa that you could possible need is there for you too enjoy. The large ensuite bedrooms with air-conditioning and Mosquito blinds comfortable double beds with the option of two single beds in one bedroom. Games Cd’s and a computer in the lounge was also another added bonus. There are plenty of books to cover every literary taste and plenty of local magazines offering very useful information about the Islands, boat hire and restaurants. The large utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer are very useful if you don’t want to pack too much to take with you. Although we did not cook that much we had the use of a cooker microwave and very large fridge freezer. Had we of wanted to we could have probably catered for the whole Island with the amount of crockery and cutlery in the Villa. The pool is a must in the heat and we made good use of it the friendly pool technician maintained this twice a week for us. A particularly good feature was that it had pool lights on all night just in case of sleep walkers I guess or youngsters wanting a midnight dip! We left Summer Heights with sadness that we could not stay longer but we have met and made many friends and our memories of a wonderful holiday here will live on."

  • 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!"

  • NIRVANA DEFINED

    "The definition of Nirvana is a state of perfect happiness; an ideal or idyllic place. This also defines Kerensa House. We planned an 8-day charter sail of the BVI's and afterwards a few nights stay at Kerensa House. Our sailing trip had totally relaxed us...or so we thought. When we arrived at Kerensa house, we made our way through a wooded area down the long rock stairway and discovered a spot so serene that we did not want to leave. Everything about Kerensa house characterizes a perfect Caribbean getaway. Terra cotta stucco trimmed in Caribbean blues, open dining area (just calling for a dinner party), a cool blue and white bedroom furnished with a most-comfortable 4-poster bed complete with a crystal chandelier in the sitting area and a bathroom to die for with an outdoor shower. A perfectly appointed great-room includes antiques, artwork, and books, a kitchen on one end, a sofa that folds out and high-tech WiFi, TV, Bose speakers and A/C. The house's balconies and porches have rocking chairs or lounges for sleeping, reading or day-dreaming. But the real calming effect comes when you step out to the vista. The infinity pool stretches out over a 180º view of The Caribbean Sea with tiny sailboats catching the wind up and down the waterway, silhouettes of distant islands and drop dead sunsets. Behind the pool finds a pergola with a vine of wisteria-type purple blossoms and comfy seating. We have been visiting the BVI's since 1976...sailing and renting houses. I can only say this...DO NOT MISS the Kerensa House experience...it's one of a kind...and you will leave with a real sense of tranquility."
