Leonards, Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Ariba is located in Long Bay, West End where many of the rental villas have been built so we have a great selection of restaurants within 5 - 10 minutes drive of the villa.
DINING: Tropical Fusion on the beach in Long Bay (opening Dec'18), Sebastians on the Beach (breakfast lunch and dinner), Tramonti (on the beach in Apple Bay), The Sugar Mill for fins dining in a beautiful historical setting, Tropical Fusion (on the waterfront in Carrot Bay with large selection of classic West Indian dishes), Bananakeet (top of Windy Hill for the best sunset views), Stoutt's Lookout (top of Windy Hill) for great views and very informal BBQ etc, Da Best Cup at Soper's Hole for awesome breakfasts. Bustling Cane Garden Bay with it's selection of restaurants, bars and live music, is just a 15 minute drive.
GROCERIES & ATTRACTIONS: Big Bens convenience store is just over Zion Hill (less than 10 minutes drive) and we look forward to the re-opening of Soper's Hill marina (10 min drive) *NO OPENING DATE SCHEDULED AS YET* which will again offer a grocery store, dive shop, days charter boats and water toy rentals. Sage Mountain is a 120 minute drive and offers beautiful National Park trails at a slightly cooler temperature de to the elevation and shade of the rainforest-like terrain.
BEACHES: Long Bay Beach is 1 mile long of white sand - perfect for walking off the cocktails and coconut shrimp or conch fritters! There are certain areas with a sandy bottom that are best for swimming and some areas that have more coral surface, we will point you in the right direction. Pelican Point is a large rock protruding from the water in the middle of Long Bay, great for snorkeling out to on calm days.
Apple Bay (3 min drive to East) offers world class surfing when the conditions are right.
Smugglers Cove (7 mins drive to the West) is a protected spot that usually offers calm waters - perfect for the less energetic among us and perfect for snorkeling the coral reefs where you can spot all kinds of sea-life - I have seen since Irma a selection of colorful small fish including angel fish etc, small octopus, turtles and puffer fish. Nigels Beach bar offers cold drinks ad a limited number of sun-loungers.

(Many of our palm trees were destroyed by Irma sadly, we have a large beach umbrella for your use in areas with less shade, we also supply you with beach chairs and a cooler.)

Hi. I'm Sam. I moved from England to Tortola is 1999, never having visited the BVIs before....BEST DECISION EVER!! I met my husband JC within days and here we are 20 years and 2 children later! Managing one gorgeous villa somehow snowballed to 30+ fab properties (Villas of Tortola) all in the West End area of Tortola. We couldn't do it without the superstar skills and charms of Sharlene and PattyAnn who'll be greeting you - you’ll adore them!! And for course a small army of lovely housekeepers, gardeners, pool technicians, electricians etc. Whatever your budget, we want to make sure you have the best holiday ever - we'll give you all the info you need to make the most of your time and we'll help to organise as much as possible ahead of time so that you can just relax. Hope you love it here as much as we do...see you soon!
