About the House
A long driveway, bordered by colourful bougainvillea, welcomes you to the Captain's House, a 2-bed private villa on Tortola. The villa sits majestically high up hillside with breathtaking panoramic ocean views from all corners of the property.
The large private pool separates the two pavilions ensuring maximum privacy to guests. The east pavilion offers king or twin beds with outdoor shower and private balcony. On the far side of the pool, a shady loggia provides an ideal area for alfresco dining and relaxation and leads into the main pavilion.
The living room, with tropical casual furnishings, is located adjacent to the fully equipped kitchen complete with dishwasher.
The master king bedroom suite beyond the living room also boasts an outdoor shower with sea views and private balcony.
Impressive 16' cathedral ceilings in the bedrooms and living room keep the villa well ventilated and comfortable, complimented by cooling tradewinds. Captain's House is a popular and romantic retreat.
Relax poolside at The Captain's House or venture forth to learn why Tortola is an island much loved by sailors, divers and fishermen. There are over 50 islands surrounding Tortola for day-trippers to discover and rediscover. From the beaches, you can swim in tranquil blue waters or snorkel along a magnificent reef while you watch multi-hued fish dart through colorful coral. For scuba divers, there is the world famous Wreck of the Rhone to explore, as well as many caves and coves filled with the wonders of the sea. For fishermen, there are deep sea fishing expeditions as well as smaller boats to rent, with or without captains. There are many day trips to choose from as well, such as Norman Island, site of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island and Virgin Gorda, where mammoth boulders dot the shore.
Known for its pristine, sandy beaches and clear blue waters, Tortola's lush, mountainous terrain offers additional attraction and exploration for visitors. Road Town, the capital of Tortola, can be reached from The Captain's House by way of a pleasant drive along the seaside highway. Road Town offers quaint shops, picturesque marinas, and excellent restaurants. Whether you seek 4-star fine dining or a casual meal, there are many restaurants on Tortola to choose from. Enjoy a burger on the beach or in a pub by the marina, or sample spicy local cuisine.
Mount Sage National Park, loved by nature enthusiasts and hikers, is a short distance from The Captain's House. Tennis and horseback riding are available nearby as well.
Tortola can be easily and conveniently reached from a number of gateways. From the U.S., several major airlines fly into San Juan, Puero Rico, and St Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Both locations offer regularly scheduled flights to Tortola's Beef Island Airport. The Captain's House is a short ride from there. In addition to flights, there are ferry services from St Thomas as well. 45 minutes on the ferry takes you to Soper's Hole; The Captain's House is just minutes away.

Your house helped make our stay better. It is a great design, in a wonderful location and we appreciated the amenities like the well stocked kitchen and the maid service....
Grace and I would like to rent your house again next year .
Thanks for letting us be guests in your house.
Tortola is a special gem of an island set in one of the most beautiful and peaceful island chains in the world. Previous sailing trips in the BVI were a sheer delight, but our stay at the Captain's House was by far the most enchanting week we have spent in the area. Photographs do not do justice to the spectacular views of the Caribbean, Long Bay Beach, and Jost Van Dyke. The villa, set high on a hill, is private, intimate, and cozy. The main house and guest suite are beautifully furnished and decorated with remarkable watercolor artwork reflecting the tone of this island paradise. The open feel of the property invites a comfortable, spacious and graceful comfort for outdoor dining and lounging, and the weather is superb. The outdoor showers are private and offer that magical view. Several excellent restaurants are easily reached, and the beaches are a few minutes away as well, and are pristine, and almost private. My wife and I enjoyed our stay and plan to return. Many thanks to the Captain and his Mate.
This was by far THE most spectacular place we have ever stayed and considering we have stayed on Tortola before, done sailing charters through-out the islands, and stayed on several other Caribbean islands this speaks highly of the lovely Captain's House! We loved the BananaKeet and their blended BananaKeet drink! We dined at the delicious Sugar Mill. We enjoyed exploring the island and taking water shuttles to Jost Van Dyke and Peter Island. However, the best part of the trip was being at The Captain's House - relaxing, dining on the Lanai, swimming in the private pool, enjoying the spectacular views, and taking an outdoor shower! We love the personal touches with the watercolors and family pictures throughout the villa. Thanks for welcoming us to your villa, we truly felt at home and we hope to make a return trip.
We LOVED our visit to your beautiful home....we had a perfect stay in your perfectly and well equipped home! We also loved being on this part of the island. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us! June, 2013
We stayed here for the first three nights of our honeymoon and it was perfect for us! The views are absolutely incredible, the pool is refreshing, the house is clean and fully stocked, and the property is at the end of a long driveway so you feel totally alone. A short (adventurous) drive down the 'hill' are two absolutely amazing (not crowded) beaches and the local dining options are delicious. The area of Tortola that the house is located in is beautiful and seems more secluded than areas closer to Road Town. We had an amazing time.
Great attention, Wonderfull Panoramics Views from every place, Unforgettable Showers,The Afternoons and of course, the calm breeze that Flows thru that Villa, a Perfect "rinconcito" in a Prestigle Island. So many thing to do that you will probably be BACK...
My husband and I just returned from a tremendous stay at The Captain's House. What can I say; 180 degree views of the Caribbean sea overlooking Jost Van Dyke and other islands dotting the horizon. It's breathtaking and impossible to communicate through mere words or pictures. You have to experience it. The villa itself is wonderful, well designed with all of the modern conveniences and we immediately felt at home. It's location on the hillside is excellent and affords great privacy which we found enriched our stay. If we wanted to be with others we'd head out to a beach or into Road Town but other times if we wanted quiet and the beauty of the area we had our lovely and very private villa as our own oasis. It was the best of both worlds. As well, the two best beaches on the island, Long Bay & Smugglers Cove are at the feet of The Captain's House. Booking the villa is easy as Sam, the villa manager is great to work with, prompt and resourceful in case you require something special. The marina is about a 10 minute drive and has a very good grocery store, well stocked with everything you'll need for your stay. If you are looking for organic or locally grown produce, Good Moon Farms is excellent. The fruit and vegetables are picked fresh to order and Aragorn, the owner, will source from the local farmers anything extra on your list. From beginning to end our stay was top tier. The Captain's House is a find and no doubt we'll be back.
