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.

When can we come back!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect in every way describes our vacation! Tom, Jessica and Max got us settled in just in time to enjoy our first sunset. Unbelievable!

We took day trips via ferry to Jost and Virgin Gorda, snorkled at Brewers Bay, ate an incredible lunch at the Sugar Mill restaurant on the beach (just down from the infamous Bomba Shack). When we werent on the go we enjoyed relaxing on the deck or in the pool.

We can't wait to return to paradise!

Driving is not as bad as everyone makes it sound and there were no bugs!

Absolutely Magnificent!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, if you come to Villa Matija, you will be renting from a wonderful family. Tom, Jessica and their beautiful son Max live on the island. Being in a totally new place out of our comfort zone was a concern, but having Tom meet us at the docks upon arrival, immediately gave us a sense of ease. He guided us through the Caribbean alps (LOL) to the Villa. If you love to drive, and you love adventure, then you are going to love Tortola!

If you want to read how we feel in a nutshell about Villa Matija, read the "Paradise Found!" review below. Nails it!

But let me just say this. I would spend my evenings watching the most beautiful sunsets on earth from the pool, and in the morning sit on the deck, and watch the moon set behind Jos Van Dyke. I am telling you, surreal. This place is magical , and every where Tom told us to go, was another paradise found. The beaches were so beautiful, and so private and empty, we half thought we were trespassing.

Tortola is an island full of incredible adventures, from diving in Brewers Bay which is exactly 3 minutes from the Villa, to surfing with Steve of Surf BVI in Josiah's Bay. One place was more beautiful than the next. And when we did have some small concerns about the Villa's cleanliness or the air-conditioner wasn't cooling like we wanted, Tom responded immediately and had the problems fixed as soon as he could. You can't ask for more than that.

We are already planning our return. Thank you again Tom and Jessica. A vacation we will never forget!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Matija ranks as our most relaxing vacation yet! We chose Tortola & Villa Matija as the place to spend a week in January for our anniversary. Even before our trip began I had the best communication with Tom & Jessica about our travel arrangements, they were very informative & timely in their communications.

It's hard to even know where to begin listing all the wonderful things about the Villa... First off, the location- it's centered on the island, so very convenient for getting around. The Private location on the hill side with the stunning views of Brewers Bay (which is just a short drive down the hill) and the view of Jost Van Dyke, were complimented each evening with a Caribbean Sunset! The grill and all other appliances in the house, were in excellent working condition. We purchased groceries upon our arrival & cooked dinner at the Villa each evening- You'd be crazy to miss the sunset dinners. The Villa is very spacious & appointed with tons of extras we didn't expect to have (Apple Airplay with the Bose Speakers, DVD's, down to the Waffle Iron). Though Hands Down, my absolute favorite thing about the house was the outdoor shower off the master bath- it's a life changer! :) We enjoyed the pool, the loungers & even the Huge TV to catch a football game! You cannot go wrong with staying at Villa Matija! We cannot wait to return to this Gem in Paradise! It was a much needed relaxing trip & it wouldn't have happened without Tom & Jessica & the Villa Matija! Thanks again!!

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.
