The living area is set between the two bedroom suites offering complete privacy for two couples.

All on one floor and all rooms and areas open onto the veranda with cushy furnishing to relax and be overwhelmed with this exceptional location and views.

HEAVEN AT THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5

The Sterling House is a beautiful villa steps from the beach. The patio overlooks the ocean and the waves crash right below from where you are drinking your wine and breathing in the fresh air. This was a much needed break from our hectic life. Enjoy sunsets, sunrises and peace. We didn't look at a computer or read emails, just relaxed and reflected on life for awhile. The villa is in the best location ever. We rented a different villa two years ago that was very nice but we will always come back to The Sterling House from now on. The convenience of restaurants, beach bars, and water sports makes your stay so much easier. The villa has beautiful views from every single room. The bath opens up to a heated spool (spa tub, mini pool...that is what we call it in Texas "spool") which prevents you from dripping water all the way through the villa. The kitchen has everything you could need, and it has a gas stove for those who like to cook. The best part about this villa is the owner of the villa. Donna is a beautiful person who will take care of all of your needs. We asked Donna down for wine and cheese, she graciously excepted. We couldn't stop laughing and we enjoyed many of her hilarious stories. She is a jewel. We can't recommend The Sterling House enough. If tranquility is what you are after, in a setting out of a movie, this is the place for you. Did we mention wine too many times? Oh well!

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful vacation at The Sterling House. It is a beautiful private home right on the Beach. The views are truly breathtaking.The owner graciously rents out the 1st floor villa which is a beautiful 2 bedroom suite. Both bedrooms have private luxurious bathrooms and are separated by a kitchen( fridge,gas stove,microwave,dishwasher,toaster,blender, coffeemaker) and living room to ensure privacy. The whole villa is ocean front and the doors in both bedrooms and the living room are pocket doors (including pocket screens) so they disappear into the walls and you can walk freely onto the elegant covered balcony to enjoy magnificent ocean views overlooking the most beautiful, quiet, picturesque beach on the Island. If needed the bedrooms have AC and if you open the bedroom doors the kitchen/living room area will cool down also.

We traveled with our 2 daughters ages 23 & 26 and wanted 3 bedrooms so the owner, offered to rent us her art studio as a third bedroom. It was perfect. It has it's own private entrance, balcony, bathroom, TV, kitchen... need I say more.

Inside all the basics to start your vacation are provided for. Paper towels,toilet paper, trash bags, coffee filters,dishwash etc. The owner suggested we order food online and had everything put away upon our arrival. A huge time saver. You will need a car if planning to explore.

You will never want to leave the villa, the views are that spectacular, the beach is steps away, there is a small dipping pool on the balcony with therapeutic jets and a European massage waterfall, they have a gas grill, washer and dryer, 40 inch tv,dvd player,stereo, WiFi ,beach chairs and towels,cooler,everything you could think of is waiting for you to enjoy.

Inside all the basics to start your vacation are provided for. Paper towels,toilet paper, trash bags, coffee filters,dishwash etc. The owner suggested we order food online and had everything put away upon our arrival. A huge time saver. I ordered food/water/drinks/ground coffee online from Riteway and had no problems. They don't have everything they offer everyday so you will get a few substitutes but everything was fresh and I was happy with my order. Once you're here it's easy to pick up meats and perishables. You will need a car if planning to explore and pick up supplies.

To get to the Villa we flew into St Thomas, taxied to the Red Hook dock, water taxied to Sopher's Hole Dock in the west end and then took a taxi to the villa. The owner provided names, websites and answers to all your questions to help ensure you have all your transportations booked ahead of time.

You will never want to leave the villa, the views are that spectacular, the beach is steps away, there is a small dipping pool on the balcony with therapeutic jets and a European massage waterfall, they have a gas grill, washer and dryer, 40 inch tv,dvd player,stereo, WiFi ,beach chairs and towels,cooler,everything you could think of is waiting for you.

GREAT location and accommodations!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two weeks on Tortola this December.

Sterling house is the way to go if you want to relax right on the Ocean listening to waves roll in and have the busy world slip away. Ten steps down to the beach for a swim, a long walk, or a diner over at the nearby restaurant. Great sitting on the deck watching the yachts go by and anchor off of Jost Van Dyke. The scenery from the bedrooms and deck are to die for.

This is a must if you want great accommodations in a perfect setting. Donna was a great help in getting us set up with renting surfboards and a boat to cruise around the BVI's on.

There was nothing she was unable to help with. Fantastic trip and going back for sure.

Location, beach, relax

  • 5 of 5

25th anniversary remarkable. After a long night of travel house keeper Jennie kindly welcomed us at the door. We unpacked, sat outside & enjoyed the sunset. We took your suggestion of ordering food and having it delivered day of check in. Jennie placed the items in the refrigerator for us. Perfect for a cold beer and drinks the day we arrive! The beds are comfortable, a huge deal for me. The kitchen has quality items to cook with. We chose your place for the location & beach! Walk down your steps to the beach! Toes in the sand, swim, 2 restaurants right there on the beach, walk over the hill to another beach and swim area, better than we expected! 11/25/14 was our anniversary. With your help we managed to connect with a local chef Kenneth Molyneaux of Tropical Fusion Beach Bar and Grill in Long Bay. A delicious meal created in front of us at your place and enjoyed while watching sunset on your deck. You also recommended Bananakeet Restaurant located on top of a hill near Cane Garden Bay, great sunset views. We enjoyed swimming in front of your home. We are beach and outdoor type. We mostly stayed in Long Bay and walked to Apple Bay for more swimming and Rum, even bought a few bottles of Sabastian’s spiced rum to bring home with us, a must have! Kuralu Catamaran cruise to Jost Van Dyke was our Thanksgiving Day adventure followed up with dinner at West End, Sophers Hole, Pussers Landing. Murlise our taxi driver was fabulous and lived only a block away. We taxied everywhere. She told us history about Tortola and showed us things along the way. We could have rented a car but with the crazy narrow steep roads we preferred the taxi driver. This way we all could enjoy ourselves and have a few drinks at the places we went as well with no worries of driving on the wrong side of the road (which is easy to do because it’s the legal side for us!) Sure we paid more for Taxi but for our first time to Tortola we wanted to relax and have fun with no worries. Your décor is lovely and updated. I enjoy art and was drawn to your painting in the living room. To those whom read this. Trust me, this is a must stay vacation. Donna is great to work with and an amazing person. This made our 25th anniversary we shared with friends memorable. I planned this for two years and was better than I expected. I’m glad I met you in person during our stay Donna! We plan to come back in a few more years when our youngest is out of college.
