About Thomas Grimes

Thomas, Cindy, and daughter Allison. We sold our plantation shutter manufacturing company in South Florida and moved to Tortola in 2004. Semi-retired we rent out our villa for income and enjoy it ourselves when we it is not rented. We love Tortola becuse of it's non-commercial and friendly atmosphere. The warm breezes of the Caribbean are constant and the ocean waters are blue and crystal clear. Villa Margarita was designed to maximise outdoor living. We used only high end finishes and added our own touches to make the house unique. We have always worked in the service industry and we know how to take great care of our guests. It took about three years to finish the construction as it's very complex and well built. Everyone says the pictures don't do it justice. We hope you will join us for your next vacation with family or friends. The Grimes

Thomas Grimes purchased this house in 2007

Why Thomas Grimes chose Tortola

The view from Villa Margarita is amazing. You see different Islands, coral heads coming up right in the bay below and the different shades of blue ocean and beyond that can't be found anywhere else. It's the finest estate on the Island. Tortola is peaceful, beautiful and safe. The Island people are very friendly and respectful. The population is mostly West Indian and British with American tourists. The American dollar is the local currency and English is the main language, that makes it easy. There are many white sandy beaches to explore. The Ocean is warm, crystal clear and blue. There is a brand new modern airport and it has easy access to the US. An alternate route is flying into St. Thomas and taking the Ferry to Road Town this adds about $75.00 to the cost of the flight. The ferry is about 1 hour. We hope all this information has been helpful. Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns or additonal photos. Tom and Cindy

Wow

  • 5 of 5

Great place, reviews are spot on. Surprised the wife for a little "land R&R" after spending a week on a yacht charter in BVI. Needless to say, she was stunned when we pulled up to the house - the view is truly amazing. The pictures really don't do it justice.

This home is like a mini private compound with 3 separate buildings, cozily nuzzled around the beautiful pool. Very peaceful and quiet. Decorated beautifully with all the amenities we needed. Very relaxing, especially after having to navigate the winding roads of Tortola (you'll see). Right up the road from Cane Grdn Bay, which was nice to hang out without going too far. This place must be great to have a whole family vacation, we're going to try and come back.

Sitting by the pool, reading a book and listening to reggae in front of the ridiculous view - not much better than that! We highly recommend Villa Margarita, and Tom couldn't be more accomodating & nice.

Awesome House for Any Occasion

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled to most of the Caribbean and enjoyed many great locations and houses over the last 15 years. None of those visits comes close to our stay at Villa Margarita. The house is laid out wonderfully for enjoyment and entertaining and everything was in good working order and very clean and convenient. Traveling with my wife and me was our two year old son and my sisters family with three children ages 9, 11 and 12. The house worked wonderfully for everyone. It is so well built and laid out that when we took our little one to bed the rest of the children (and their parents) could continue to play in the game room, pool and hot tub without any disturbance to us. Speaking of the game room, it is fantastic and includes a pool table, darts, and our favorite the air hockey table with a bar as well. What more could you want? There are toys for children, sun chairs, umbrellas, and even some snorkel gear (too many goodies to list them all here).

I also have to note that working with the owners was a complete pleasure from the first email to checkout. Cindy was extremely helpful in making recommendations for car rental, restaurants, etc. As an added benefit Cindy accepted our grocery delivery and even took care of putting items in the refrigerator for us prior to our arrival so we were ready to go upon walking in. Additionally, she met us at the customs dock and showed us the way to the house and gave us a helpful walkthrough. It was easy to tell she really cared that we were welcomed into her house and had everything we needed. She even called to check in on us which was really comforting.

The views of Jost Van Dyke are amazing and the sunsets are beautiful. Just thinking about how relaxing and fun it is makes me want to go right back.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking is the word I'll use to describe Villa Margarita! The love behind the building of this home to make it the perfect spot for you to enjoy your friends and family. Our family just came back from Paradise is what we are telling everyone. Just imagine waking up to the most breath taking view and going to bed just after an amazing display of every color imaginable as the sun is setting over the mountains. It is all for you to enjoy if you come to Villa Margarita. Tom, Cindy and their daughter made us feel welcomed and looked after any need we had and more. We came to Scuba Dive, but what an added bonus to have such a beautiful home to come back to. This home is supplied with everything you would need and with so many added extra's.

Owner's Response: It was so nice meeting you and your family. We are so glad you had a great time at Villa Margarita and scuba diving in the warm blue waters surrounding the BVI. Yes, it is a paradise on earth! We hope to see you again next year. Tom and Cindy

Indescribable!

The home is everything it says and more. We did not even venture out because the property is so gorgeous. We would definitely stay here again if we have the chance. Cindy is an angel to work with also.

On top of the world!

  • 5 of 5

There is no better way to escape the worst winter of recent memory than to spend some time in Tortola, and no better spot than Villa Margarita. Everything has been thought of. All you need is a couple of bathing suits, a pair of shorts, a t-shirt, flip flops, and a camera and you will be ready for anything. This beautifully appointed villa, while at the top of the mountain, is within easy reach of many beaches, restaurants, marinas, etc. Yes, get a 4WD, go provisioning so you can fix dinners at home. You will not want to leave once you see the sun set over the western sky. We planned our dinners "in" on the days we went on excursions because after a day on the water, nothing is better than to come back to an awesome outdoor stone shower followed by a painkiller on the deck! Sailing/snorkeling excursions included White Bay on Jost Van Dyke and the Baths at Virgin Gorda. We sailed on the Mystique and loved it, although i think we would have been happier at VG if we had just taken the ferry so we could have had more time there. Do not sail to Virgin Gorda from Sopers Hole...it just takes too long. Lesson learned. We also visited Long Bay Beach (by the airport) which was stunningly gorgeous, Trellis Bay (love Aragorn's Studio and Trellis Bay Cafe), Smuggler's Cove (GREAT beach and snorkeling but bring your own food and bevs), Cane Garden Bay, Bomba Shack, Myett's, Bananakeet, and Brandywine Estate.

I could gush on and on about the beauty of the villa itself but everyone already has. Just know that you will be pleasantly surprised by the amenities...down to the last detail. Plenty of great cookware and utensils, top of the line appliances, nice beach towels, fun game room/bar, gorgeous pool (which was a little too cold for us to actually swim in but it was darn pretty to look at), all surrounded by lush landscaping and stunning views. What more could you ask for?

Just go. You know you want to!

Owner's Response: Dear Laura and Friends, Tom and I are so pleased you had a wonderful get-a-way from the cold and enjoyed all the sites that make Tortola so special. Thank you for expressing how much you enjoyed your vacation, and Villa Margarita. We checked on the pool heating system and found it was faulty, and would like to offer you a one night free stay in the future. Thanks Again, Thomas and Cindy Grimes

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Tortola to celebrate my in-laws 40th wedding anniversary and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. When we arrived Tom was there to show us the beautiful house, how to pick bananas off the tree right outside the door (made banana's foster-yum) and answer any questions we had. The house is fantastic! Pictures do not do it justice. There is everything you could possibly need to have a great time at the house and to explore the island. We really loved the pool and the game house! The dining area is great, open air so we could enjoy the beautiful island breeze. We spent a lot of time exploring the island and found out that it is a real adventure to get to the best beaches and SOOOO worth it! Tom and Cindy were so helpful, making great suggestions for places to eat, beaches to go to and even fixing the door knob when we got a little rambunctious! We will DEFINITELY come back! Thank You Tom and Cindy for being so hospitable, we made some real friends for life!
