Living on an island beyond compare.
We had such a relaxing stay with Alex and Laura, who were both wonderful and exceptionally accommodating. We felt lucky to be able to stay in a place so tranquil and with such a remarkable vista. We will absolutely try to stay there again (If they're not already booked!)
One thing to note: although Alex's directions are perfect, you might not want to try and check in after sunset. It was a little tricky to get there at night .
We had an amazing stay in Tortola and much of that experience is owed to the special nook in paradise that Alex provides to airbnb. We loved waking up each morning to Trunk bay and spent a good part of each morning just sitting on the porch enjoying the view. The room had everything we needed (kitchen supplies, towels, snorkel gear) and the bed is comfortable, we slept great. We shopped in town on the first day and made breakfast every morning. We used the little BBQ out front one night as well! Showering outside is part of the fun and the water is really not very cold.
The house is very central on the island so we were able to drive to beaches on the East and West end very easily. Road Town is just over the hill so grabbing supplies is convenient and catching the ferry to Virgin Gorda is a piece of cake!
Alex was a great host and we hope to come back again soon.
Thank you for sharing your slice of paradise with us!

Wir wollten nach einem Segeltörn auf einem Großsegler noch 2 Tage auf Tortola verbringen und unsere Eindrücke von BVI verarbeiten. Mit Alex fanden wir 3 Kumpels einen supernetten Typen, der uns sehr herzlich empfangen hat. Sein idylisch gelegenes Haus würden wir ohne seine detailierte Wegbeschreibung sicherlich nicht finden. Die Austattung der Unterkunft war genau wie beschrieben und die Aussicht auf die Trunk Bay ist einfach traumhaft. Wir haben uns sehr sehr wohl gefühlt und können diese Unterkunft nur wärmstens empfehlen.

The room was exactly want I was looking for, peaceful, clean, spacious with a lovely view of Trunk Bay. And however decorated it I like the style- very laid back. My fav part was sitting on the couches on the porch. And Alex was lovely and very helpful. Outdoor showers which I am used to from back packing around central america so I didn't mind. I would recommend staying here but definitely need a car. Lovely experience.
The photos do not do this place justice! It is fantastically beautiful. The room is spacious and furnished really comfortably with thought and style. The view is spectacular, I could have spent a week just taking it in from the patio. It feels completely private even though it is under the house. Go there!!! Stunning beach which did not have 1 other footprint the day we were there in high season!!!
We were really well looked after, Alex and his wife are gracious, interesting, unobtrusive and helpful. A fitting end to our wonderful journey in the BVI
We absolutely loved our stay at Alex's - gorgeous view, comfy place to hang out, roomy, just perfect! Alex was a great host, and gave us lots of wonderful suggestions for where to go, restaurants, etc.
We will definitely be coming back!
Ill try not to gush too much here but Alex and Laura and their place are pretty much the reason I do airbnb. They are kind, accommodating, and have one helluva a view from their home. Super down to earth, have amazing life stories and are a blast to spend time with. Their place is a bit off the beaten path, so be prepared for that, then be prepared for how amazing that makes your stay. Cheers!
amazing place.... I can't say enough good things about the location and the hosts.... we will most definitely be back!
Perfect spot on Tortola with fantastic views and basically a huge private beach at your disposal (Trunk Bay). Alex and his wife (Laura) was extremely helpful. Laura drove us to town and the airport. You should obviously not expect this, but it just gives an idea on how awesome they are.
Rent a car, the place is a little remote and taxis are expensive in Tortola.
This was a little slice of paradise. We had such a spectacular view of Trunk Bay. There was a nice deck with couches for us to just sit and take it all in. Alex and Laura are wonderful hosts. They know the island and the best places to go. What a fun and quirky place to stay. Very secluded and private.
Thank you so much, Alex and Laura, for opening your home to us!!!
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!
