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."

  • Paradise on Earth

    "If you want to experience a home set in a tropical paradise overlooking the endless shades of blue of the Caribbean, look no further. From the very first outreach about booking to the conclusion of our trip, Michael was beyond helpful and provided details around every aspect of the travel to and from the island as well as the home itself. House Manager Tiina met us at the dock, get us set with our rental car, took us to get provisions and got us all settled in the villa. She is amazing and such a great resource during our stay. The photos cannot do justice to the spectacular views from almost every side of the villa itself. You almost can't believe it's real and right in front of you. The home is built into the hillside overlooking the sea and Leverick Bay beneath and is surrounded by lush, flowering tropical plants and trees for complete privacy. All of the furnishings, including some custom made, are very comfortable and functional in addition to being perfect for the home's style. We spent hours on the deck recliners enjoying the view of the water and boats of all kinds coming and going after a full day of snorkeling, beach time and exploring. This home and Virgin Gorda are the perfect destination for water sports lovers, beach enthusiasts, snorkelers and divers, and anyone who loves beauty and relaxation on "island time." Visit Spring Bay, Long Bay and Valley Truck Bay for great snorkeling. Savannah Bay was also a wonderful day. Can't go wrong with any of the beaches. Take the free ferry to Bitter End Yacht Club for some brick over pizza and the best key lime pie. Visit Hog Heaven for the spectacular views and great food -- ribs, fried chicken and fresh potato salad were among our favorites. Ride out of the Copper Mine ruins (closed in the mid-1800s) and get great views of the Atlantic side of the island. The Top of the Baths restaurant is always a great lunch stop but go back at dinner for a more upscale dining experience and menu - on certain nights they also have a fire dancer which was awesome. We had a great experience with Mahogany car rentals as well. My only hesitation is recommending is that everyone will discover this treasure making it harder for us to find an open date next time we visit -- and we will. Thanks for a vacation of a lifetime!"

  • Honeymoon in Tortola

    "We had such a phenomenal honeymoon in Tortola. The house was private and the view was phenomenal. We enjoyed watching the sunsets, grilling out, the pool, the XM radio, and the Wi-Fi to stay connected to the world. Everything you need is at the house, so if you want to stay in you can. It is also close to other islands so if you want to explore you can. We went to Jost Van Dyke (Foxy's and the Bubbly Pool), Virgin Gorda (the Baths and the view from Hog Heaven), and St. John (Woody's, Sam and Jack's Deli for food and Cinnamon Bay for the beach). Road Town (10 minutes) is very close for groceries and anything you may have forgotten. John is such a gracious host and gives you great details on places to go and how to get there. We can't wait to get back!"

  • 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."
