Overview

Tortola Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Villa Matija is nestled comfortably into the hillside overlooking Brewers Bay on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands

Allow yourself a little luxury and be eco-friendly at the same time! Villa Matija (pronounced ma-TEE-ya) sits above Brewers Bay with an outstanding view of Jost Van Dyke and several other smaller cays & islands. On a clear day you can see Puerto Rico (about 70 miles away)!

Stay at Villa Matija and enjoy the beauty and comfortable climate of the Caribbean with all the comforts of home at your fingertips. Villa Matija is very comfortable for up to four people. The house has two master suites only, one with a private deck & outdoor shower, the other with direct access to the villa's porch, deck & plunge pool. The downstairs bedroom can be set up with a king size bed or two twins. This makes Villa Matija ideal for two couples or a family of four. A modern kitchen and home theatre/living room with a 58' plasma TV and surround sound make it a great place to stay home and relax. Generous outdoor space flows effortlessly inside giving the feel of being outside while inside or the other way around if you prefer (great when there's a passing rain shower!)

Villa Matija is partially powered with solar energy using two solar hot water panels and twelve photovoltaic (PV) panels. Instead of a generator powered by fossil fuel Villa Matija has an alternative energy system that can run the house for modest amounts of time with little attention and quite some time with careful energy management. And don’t worry, our solar hot water is backed up by a traditional hot water heater that provides an abundant supply of hot water whatever time of day you need to shower. While both bedrooms have air conditioning, we encourage our guests to leave the windows open at night with the fan on and the AC off to experience the local climate. Most evenings are cool with very pleasant sleeping weather.

Brewers Bay beach, one of the most beautiful in the BVI, is just a 3 minute drive down the hill. Cane Garden Bay, another favorite BVI beach, is a short 10 minute drive. Road Town, the capital of the BVI is also a 10 minute drive away, yet when you’re at Villa Matija, you feel like you’re in another world!

Enjoy the beaches, snorkeling or just lounge at the house. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll be glad you chose Villa Matija as your home when you visit the BVI.

Cannot recommend enough

  • 5 of 5
We had the most relaxing time. This villa is in such a wonderful location. Beautiful birds, butterflies to see and a hummingbird that came daily and just sat with us. Bring a pair of binoculars with you to get the full benefit of its location. Fantastic views. The villa has everything you need and a lovely pool.

Amazing villa, AMAZING view

  • 5 of 5
Villa Matija was everything we could ask for. Tom & Jessica were very nice. They met us at the airport on Tortola and led us to the villa. They explained everything we needed to know about the villa and gave us some tips about the island. Road Town and Brewers Bay are close, and just about anywhere else on the island was a reasonable drive.
The villa was spotless, had all the modern amenities you would expect in a 7 year old villa, and everything was in great condition. The view of Brewers Bay and Jost Van Dyke from just about anywhere in the villa is absolutely amazing. Thank you, Tom & Jessica, Villa Matija is amazing and we will definitely come back if our travels bring us back to Tortola.

Stress Free Vacation at Villa Matija

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a stress free vacation, this is the place. Tom and Jessica unpacked our grocery delivery before our arrival, and met us at the airport with our rental car. This was a lifesaver since we arrived after dark and Tortola does not have any road signs. He lead us straight to the house and gave us a quick rundown of the area. The house is amazing, fully furnished with everything we needed. It was also nice having two completely private master suites. The pictures simply do not do the view justice. The clear view of Jost and Sandy Cay, coupled with the water in Brewers Bay is breathtaking. While there probably isn't a bad view on the entire island, Tom and Jessica's added efforts to make our stay as easy as possible make Villa Matija an excellent choice. Highly recommended.

Perfect first time on Tortola!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, and two very dear friends, recently stayed six nights at the villa. Believe everything people say after they have stayed here. Awesome place! Location is central, the house is very well appointed, and yes the views are magnificent! Tom and Jessica were in constant communication before our trip, and extremely helpful in all matters. They adjusted to our arrival schedule, our provision delivery and met us with the Rogue. Yes, rent the Rogue. Huge difference in being able to go where you want, when you want. Can't really say enough nice things about this rental and the folks involved. Thanks again Tom & Jessica.

A Slice Of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from a wonderful nine-day stay at Villa Matija. The views are spectacular and from our first night, we saw some amazing sunsets. The villa is well stocked with just about everything you’ll need for your stay in paradise (the beach chairs were awesome). We spent time on some amazing beaches including Smuggler’s Cove, Long Bay on Beef Island, Trunk Bay (our favorite, despite an adventure finding it) and Brewers Bay, just below the villa. While we were there, Tom and Jessica completed the house binder which includes lots of helpful info on the house and the island. We followed one of their suggestions and crossed over the rocks at Brewers Bay to the more secluded eastern side and had it completely to ourselves on our last full day there. The snorkeling was excellent there as well as at Smugglers Cove and Trunk Bay. We loved having the swimming pool to cool off in after returning from a day at the beach (and the adventure that is driving on Tortola). Looking over the side of the pool at Brewers Bay below and Jost Van Dyke in the distance, cocktail in hand, tunes playing on the great stereo (there are outdoor speakers but with all the doors to the villa open, the speakers in the house are more than adequate) became part of our daily routine. We had great meals out at Bananakeet and at Charlie’s (twice) at the Mooring’s in Road Town. Because there are so many doors and windows in the villa, we had a handful of lizards in the house, which we didn’t mind at all (although we did perform lizard check before climbing into bed each night). One especially liked hanging out on a lampshade in the lower bedroom. Mosquito’s were an issue (it is the tropics) and we did find it helpful to spray repellent on us before going to bed, even with the windows in the bedroom closed and the AC running. We left a few cans of bug spray behind for future guests. The steep driveway is a bit of a challenge, both turning in to the villa and pulling out onto the road. We would suggest cutting back the shrubs at the top of the driveway as much as possible to improve visibility of oncoming traffic. This was a vacation we had been thinking about for almost nine years and we are very happy that we chose beautiful Villa Matija as the base of operations for our BVI adventure.

The house exceeded our expectations and immediately felt like home. Great layout with beautiful views from every window. Large deck which easily accommodated our entire family - whether we were in the pool, or just enjoying the view. The deck offered plenty of opportunities to spread out with areas for dining and/or playing games. The deck offered both sun and shade. The villa is spacious and the large couch was comfortable and fit our entire family when we watched a movie. *Hubby was very impressed with the TV set-up and stereo system.

Tom and Jessica were kind and thorough when sharing the details of their home. We highly recommend!
