Don't let the outdoor shower keep you away from this beautiful slice of heaven! It's really not that cold (coming from a girl who takes incredibly hot showers). The room has its own private porch and view of the ocean. The beach is just a short jaunt down the hill, which we had all to ourselves. We loved being able to make our own coffee and eggs on the hot plates. Laura and Alex are more than hospitable hosts. They kindly shared all of the knowledge we needed to have an incredible vacation. If we ever come back to The BVI, we know we want to stay here again.
We've just returned from a week in Tortola... It's difficult to "describe your experience" at Alex & Laura's place. It's pure paradise, to say the least. The space is huge if you have any experience with island living, and it has everything you could possibly need or want, including cooking and coffee supplies. The outside patio is an amazing spot to sit and unwind and watch the daylight disappear. Falling asleep to the sounds of the waves rolling in on Trunk Bay was my favorite part. And Alex and Laura make you feel like you are at your home away from home. They're a lovely couple, very interesting and well traveled - and they've created the perfect travelers retreat. Words can't express our gratitude to our hosts for allowing us to share in their piece of paradise. It was the most perfect place for us. Wishing you the best, until next time. Cheers, Michelle & Pat Ft Lauderdale FL
Recommendations to travelers: Rent a paddle board or surf board from Alex's place in Josia's Bay - Rent a Suzuki Jimmy from DeDe's car rental (Deadman is awesome!) - Visit Banana Keets for sunset - And lastly, don't come to Tortola with expectations, it will surpass all of them.
Wir haben uns wirklich sehr wohl bei Alex und seiner Familie gefühlt! Als wir den Weg nicht zu seinem Haus finden konnten, weil einfach total kaputt von der langen Reise waren, hat er uns abgeholt und zu seinem Haus geführt!!! Man wohnt im unteren Geschoss für sich alleine und genießt Privatsphäre. Alex ist sehr hilfsbereit und das hat uns manche Fahrroute verkürzt:-) wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen und werden den tollen Ausblick von unserer Terrasse auf die blaue Bucht mit dem einsamen Sandstrand vermissen!
The apartment above Trunk Bay was better than we expected. It was very tranquil and had everything we needed, from beach towels and pots and pans to sunscreen and a cooler. The location is great if you are looking to get away from it all. We enjoyed spending time at Trunk Bay and surrounding beaches which are not only breathtaking but secluded as well. The hosts were both friendly and helpful. Thanks for such a great stay!
The room is beautiful, spacious, and private. The view is drop dead gorgeous. It is truly a sanctuary for a lucky traveler or two. Alex and Laura kept their front door open which made us feel super welcome to peek in and ask for directions or help whenever we needed it, but otherwise they left us to our own devices. Would absolutely visit again, but hopefully for longer next time!
Alex was a very nice host. It was very nice! Good place, good views, near beach, perfect!
Alex (and the family) made us feel very welcome and comfortable during our three week stay. When we had a question, they were very helpful. Alex made recommendations of places to go, beaches, eateries -- and these enhanced our visit. While we did not interact a great deal, when we did, we found Alex to be extraordinarily kind and interested. He and his wife are lovely folks.
The description of the property is quite accurate, the photos show it clearly. Like most of Tortola, they are perched on a steep hillside and they overlook a breath-taking panorama of the Atlantic. It was superbly peaceful and restorative for us. And the outdoor, open-air shower was great fun, with no houses even remotely close. We barely noticed that the shower is cold-water-only since the climate is delightfully warm (but not overly humid, so comfortable also when not showering!). Given the geography, a 4-wheel drive vehicle is a must. There, too, Alex helped immensely by steering us to a locally owned rental company with reasonable rates and great service.
In closing, the weather was wonderful. It rained mainly at night. We certainly give Alex credit for arranging that too!
Alex couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly upon our arrival to this gorgeous villa in Tortola. He recommended places to go and provided us with beach towels that we used everyday. It was the absolute perfect place to stay and unwind during our four days on the island. It was very spacious, private and had a breathtaking view. Did I mention the view? Amazing. While at the villa, we spent most of the time on the huge patio, eating food prepared using the two cook rings provided. There's also a spacious mini fridge to keep groceries in which was very nice since we saved a lot of money by making meals there instead of dining out. There's a outdoor shower provided which is perfect was washing dishes after meals. It was also nice having a private beach down the mountain, about 5 minutes from the villa. We couldn't possibly have asked for a better place to stay!!!
This was a really neat spot. If you are renting a vehicle, it gives you a nice centrally located "jumping off" point to explore the island. If you are not and intend to stay put and relax, it is a very quiet, relaxing environment and you have access to your own semi-private beach. The room itself is very large and the outside patio is private with stunning views. We spent very lazy mornings sipping on coffee, playing cards outside and watching the sail boats float by. Alex and Laura were very personable and friendly when we saw them, but truly it felt as if we had the place to ourselves. It was very quiet and we may have crossed paths just a couple times in a week's trip. It was also very nice to have an electric burner and a fridge as we found that food was very expensive on the island. We ended up cooking at least half of our meals at the house and all of the pots, pans, utensils you could need were provided. All and all, we were very pleased with these accommodations and would highly recommend this home for your Tortola vacation.
Alex was very responsive and offered some useful info before our arrival. The room was as described and very comfortable. The views and the nearby beach were both amazing.
Hey Alex hope you guys enjoyed your stay! It was my pleasure hosting for you! I will definitely have to come out and visit you some time. Your place looks amazing!
