It's all been said in the previous reviews, but the Ewing House is in an amazing location (less than 1 minute walk to beach) with simply stunning views from every room. We were worried about the heat being there in the summer, but with a gorgeous beach steps away, as well as air conditioning in all the bedrooms, it was a non issue. The property owner (Mimi -- thank you!) couldn't have been nicer and more helpful with every aspect of our family getaway, as was Christine, who gave us the local scoop besides the great housekeeping. As far as the island, it's drop dead gorgeous and a wonderful adventure, very different from our usual Hawaii vacations. The people of Tortola are extremely warm and friendly; we felt safe everywhere we went. A side trip to Virgin Gorda is highly recommended as well -- be sure to visit Spring Bay and not just the Baths, which can get very crowded (Spring Bay was practically deserted and even more beautiful). All said and done, it was a fantastic trip!
