Recent British Virgin Islands BVI reviews

  • Lovely Villa in a Spectacular Setting

    "We agree completely with the numerous other positive reviews. They are so uniformly excellent that there is no need for a repeat. We found that the compact architectural layout of the main structure/pool deck/guest room fit beautifully for the two of us and would for four as well. It was all extremely comfortable for our needs. The kitchen appeared fully equipped, but we chose to eat dinners out. (The excellent meals at the nearby Sugar Mill restaurant became our regular choice.) We have cruised these waters several times but this was our first on-island stay. Reviews elsewhere had warned that our rented Suzuki Jimney would be significantly underpowered on numerous stretches, as indeed it was. Our next trip will opt for a model with increased horsepower. We learned that it helps to bring your sense of humor and adventure when negotiating the numerous switchbacks and frequently very steep pitches so characteristic of the hillside back roads (roads?). Samantha & JC at Villas of Tortola provided uniformly prompt and excellent assistance with questions during our planning and booking process. Dede’s rental provided smooth car drop off and pickup. If in the area do not fail to enjoy very nearby Smuggler’s Cove. This beautiful beach and its extensive sandy swimming area are not to be missed."

  • Beautiful Estate - Amazing Views!

    "My family stayed at AnaCapri Estate June, 2016. We had 8 adults and 2 children in our party.... plenty of room for everyone! The beds, with their lovely lace-trimmed sheets, were so cozy and comfortable. Each couple had their own beautifully decorated bedroom/bathroom suite, complete with it's own private porch and/or balcony with an incredible view! Every bedroom also has it's own individual remotely controlled AC for additional sleeping comfort. The common areas of the house are also amazing with beautiful arches, columns, beamed ceilings, Italian floor tiles and windows all around. The kitchen is equipped with everything we could have possibly wanted to fix our own great family meals. And there is also plenty of comfortable seating inside and out. Karen, the owner, was so helpful and thought of everything down to the smallest detail. There are plenty of books, DVDs, video games and pool toys for the kids.... even snorkel gear and a cooler for picnics! The grounds of the estate are beautifully maintained with stone walkways to several private sitting areas amid lush tropical greenery. Being from Florida, we were prepared for an extremely hot, humid climate and lots of bugs! I packed several types of bug repellent for the trip, but we never needed it. No problems at all with gnats, mosquitoes or any other types of bugs! And the beautiful, constantly blowing sea breezes made sitting outside a pure pleasure. There are several beaches within walking distance of the estate. Our favorite was Lava Flow beach with it's pure white sand and secluded location. It was like a little piece of heaven we had all to ourselves! There is lots to do on Tortola just a short driving distance from the estate. But our favorite thing was just hanging out by the pool or on a porch, preparing meals together, and dancing to Latin music. Oh, and we learned how to make our own Pain Killers... a real tropical delight! :-) I would whole-heartedly recommend AnaCapri Estate to anyone looking to plan their next family getaway! It was an amazing week for me and my family, and where we made beautiful memories together that we'll share for a lifetime."

  • 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."

  • Awesome place to stay, private, beautiful (sunset) view

    "We (family of four adults) stayed at Shimmering Palms for about 1.5 weeks this summer during my vacation (I work on the island). The villa is fully equipped with everything one needs, the view is truly amazing and privacy guaranteed. Even the internet connection (and this is special in the BVI) can be considered as high speed. The villa is situated between two of the most beautiful beaches we have (Long Bay and Smugglers Cove), so you do not necessarily need a car to enjoy the Caribbean. Nevertheless, it would be useful e.g. to buy groceries. Sam and her team is very uncomplicated, reliable and helpful. The only disadvantages, however, may be that the villa is relatively far away from the airport and that there is no generator installed (but there are a lot of lamps and lights provided so you can enjoy the romantic atmosphere while waiting for the electricity to come back :-)). All in all, this villa is still my #1 choice if I have more than one visitor coming over."
