Overview

Tortola Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Bedrooms 2, Bathrooms 3, Sleeps 9

Come experience the beauty of Tortola, where you can stroll on white-sand beaches, swim in pristine azure waters, explore pioneer ruins, or try the island’s delectable local cuisine. As the largest island in the British Virgin Islands chain, you’ll find the perfect balance of activity and serenity to make your Caribbean dreams come true.

This 2-bedroom, 3-bathroom hill cottage is the perfect setting for your Tortola adventure! Up to 9 guests can comfortably sleep here, thanks to an open extra sleeping area, so it can easily accommodate families or groups of couples looking for a romantic vacation. You’ll be able to enjoy ocean views from almost every single room in the house, from the bedrooms, the dining areas, and of course the patio. Prepare tropical-inspired breakfasts in the fully equipped kitchen and then dine outside looking over Apple Bay, and listen to the sounds of the island… Welcome to paradise!

When you’re not out exploring the island, spend lazy afternoons relaxing by your private swimming pool, which also has amazing ocean views. With the great open view pool, it almost looks as if it blends in with the sea! You’ll find this home secluded & private, so you can sunbathe to your heart’s delight without worrying about crowds or noisy beachgoers. The hill cottage is semi eco-designed with natural air conditioning, thanks to the endless Caribbean breezes, plus 13 ceiling fans to cool even the hottest days or nights.

The location of the hill cottage is quite convenient – from here, you’re very close to the main roads, ferries, and restaurants and bars. The islands offer activities that cater to all kinds of interests. You can take a sugar plantation tour, hike Tortola’s lush green mountains, or even try surfing, diving, or kite-boarding if you’re feeling particularly adventurous. These waters are perfect for just about any ocean or water sport! So what are you waiting for? Before long you could be wandering Tortola’s shops, taking scenic walks along the beach, and dipping your toes in that crystal, aqua-blue Caribbean water… As some of the previous guests have mentioned, for a sight unseen cottage, you won't be disappointed!

This was the first time we encountered some disappointing surprises booking through VRBO. Will say first of all that Evolve Vacations was great at responding to my initial inquiry and made the booking process a breeze. Also, the owner of the villa was very pleasant and responsive. If you were to rate the villa exclusively for its spectacular view of the rolling hills and the ocean below and it's private location still within reach to some very good dining and great beaches, the rating would go off the charts. The pictures on the VRBO website accurately depict the view you will most definitely enjoy. What it does not mention or show however is that the 2 main bedrooms are quite removed from that view. More specifically, they are located below the main living area and do not afford either the view or the comfort that we anticipated. Aside from feeling dark and isolating, one of the bedrooms had a wall of doors that could be fully opened for fresh air and the tropical breeze. Sounds great in theory, but since there are no screens on the doors, you are at the mercy of the hungry mosquitos (the mosquito net was inadequate) & we felt a little vulnerable/not secure leaving doors wide open sleeping on the ground level. The other bedroom (located even further below the house), did have screens on the windows, however the windows were small so there really is no view). The other 'annoyance' with this 2nd bedroom was its' 'non-suite'- bathroom(!) located on the other side of the stairwell. Didn't much enjoy having to 'hike' outside and across the hall in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. We accepted the rather odd layout and 'closed in'/dark and rustic vibe of the bedrooms but were quite disappointed as we were really looking forward to a higher standard of comfort that we had anticipated. The main living area of the villa was well equipped with necessities and was clean. Wi-Fi was perfect. Would describe the décor as comfortable leaning to rustic - much like a cottage. Would have helped if the oven and the BBQ was working properly. Also, the exterior of the property overall appeared a little neglected & needs some TLC ( 'sticky' door hinges, stairwells looks dingy/dirty, broken outdoor patio tiles, the pool lounge chairs on arrival were scattered randomly....small but important 'improvements' that this beautiful property deserves! Enjoyable stay overall, but hopefully this review is both helpful and constructive.

Owner's Response: As property managers we enjoy all feedback and wish to note some good changes that have come from all the great comments of our guests. Without sounding defensive, we wanted to responsibly comment on a few items and let history judge the rest. The pictures are very accurate on the websites, and the human eye always has a better feel for views... The two main bedrooms are classic West Indian style away from the main living rooms for quiet and harmony, the distance is one stairway and two stairways respectively, and unmistakably part of the same structure and home. Each bedroom has a view, just the precursor view of the eye-filling ones of above, but lower in the 'bush' as the locals refer to it. The bedrooms are comfortably appointed with baths near or ensuite and people report sleeping like babies on a regular basis. The forest views are particularly enjoyable and the long distance views are only steps away. No bedroom is designed to be totally open when sleeping as winds and mosquitoes are unpredictable and we never recommend that for our people just as normal precautions. The 2nd bedroom, in 2015, now has a specific and large gate that walls it safely over to its across-the-breezeway 'non-suite' bathroom. As they say one mans ceiling is another mans floor, all rooms are secure and fanned and windowed with louvers and screens to keep any hot Texan cool...! The house design is very cottage like, with a few differences such as earthquake and hurricane resistant reinforced concrete throughout. The oven says 'preheat' all the time, but will make your casserole as fast as any at home as the oven is a Home Depot modern model. The BBQ is new in 2015, but these things corrode quickly in paradise. The exterior has received a makeover via a new coat of paint and you will not see dingy or dirty for now. The only broken patio tiles are half dozen ones which surround an immovable drain pipe that must remain that way for service by the plumbers but is barely an issue. We take no issue with the commentary of our guests and need all feedback to make sure the living soul of the property fulfill everyone’s wishes and dreams. Thank you all for being part of our Tortola Adventure!

Tortola Adventure started with the driveway...! and continued from there...

  • 4 of 5

The trip to Tortola was in the off-season. Our first impression of Tortola, was similar to that of St. John... that locals were much more friendly on this island than on St. Thomas. The adventure started with the steep driveway... Man do they like their steep roads and driveways on Tortola. The island was a bit slow in the off season, and many places were closed, but the places that were open were great.

The initial impression of the Tortola Adventure condo was that it was a little more rustic than displayed in the photos. But by the conclusion of the stay, the location became a very comfortable base of operations and we settled in nicely. The views are amazing and sleeping with the doors open was awesome. Thankful for the mosquito nets, because the buggers were out with a vengeance after the rains. The WiFi access was crucial in planning out our days, although cable and dsl connection on the island is spotty and inconsistent. Hopefully Tortola will improve its information backbone in the days to come...

We had a great time and great weather in Tortola, it only rained once at night during the 4 day stay (during the hurricane season) while we were there. We drove all around the island from West End to Trellis Bay. Got out into the water to SUP at Cane Garden Bay, rented a great 24' boat from Mark and Katrin at Island Time Powerboats and visited the Baths at Virgin Gorda, snorkeled Ginger Island, Cooper Island, the Indians, the Bight and the Caves at Norman Island with the help of Captain Lou.

Great meals at Long Bay Beach Club (Long Bay), Myett's (Cane Garden Bay), Sharky's (Royal BVI Yacht Club), Captain Mulligan's (Nanny Cay), Watering Hole (Road Town) and Brandywine Estate Restaurant (Brandywine Bay). Enjoyed the drinks at Peg Legs (Nanny Cay), Myett's (Cane Garden Bay), Brandywine (East Road Town) and a stop off at Stoutt's Look Out for a Look Out Punch a must. Captain Mulligan's a great place to catch a meal, drink and watch some sport.

Dove off the Willy T at the Bight, enjoyed a few Painkillers at the Soggy Dollar Bar, and even visited Foxy for a serenade on Jost Van Dyke. We fit a lot in on our 4 day stay in Tortola and coming back to enjoy the view from the infinity splash pool was always a plus....

All in all we enjoyed our Tortola Adventure and the location was a great base of operations. The Virgin Islands are a water sport adventurers play ground. Great people, great views, great beaches, great water and great fun.....!

Woot-woot!

  • 5 of 5

Definitely felt the Caribbean

breeze in this hilltop apartment in Tortola. It's open and

bright. The view of the ocean was invigorating. Their

infinity pool lived up its name. The apartment was well-

kept and it was really a home away from home!

Beautiful and unique property

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property with a convenient location on this end of the island. Don't let the other reviews about "loud music" deter you... it's wonderful to sit on the deck and listen to the relaxing music drift up from the beach-bars below. The particular home has a unique set-up that is perfect for three couples, each level-bedroom is complete with it's own full bath. Both the owner and property manager are very involved in making sure a good time is had by all.

We love BVI!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in the British Virgin Islands whilst we were on our honeymoon and had the most wonderful time staying at Tortola adventure.

The villa is positioned on Little Zion Hill and the first time you zoom up the hill you wonder where you are going, but wow when you get to the top it is most certainly worth it.

The villa is lovely and clean and filled with everything you can ever need! We want the owner to come and organise our home for us, he has thought of everything you could possibly ever need! Both the owner and the housekeeper checked up on us during our stay to make sure we were okay which was a nice thought.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and miss sitting on the balcony with a cold beer watching the sunset whilst listening being educated on 'proper' music by my husband (he loved all your CD's).

Some highlights: Jost Van Dyke - Soggy Dollar Bar, Virgin Gorda Baths - wow beautiful! Amazing food at Banankeet Cafe, Sugarmill restaurant and a great lunch at Roti Palace in Road Town if you want to sample some traditional cuisine.

We'll be back soon if you'll have us. Thank you for an amazing few days!

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

We could only spend two nights here, but we loved every minute of it. The views are amazing (especially at sunset), the location was great (beautiful beaches, good surfing, good restaurants nearby). The pool was awesome and if you want a great workout, just run up and down Zion hill a few times. When the owner suggests getting a four wheel drive vehicle, believe him. People travel to Disney World to experience rides half as exciting as the steep drive up to the house. I especially loved the owner's CD collection. It was a good opportunity to show the kids what real 70-80's music was like - I mean who doesn't love Van Morrison, The Talking Heads, etc. Thank you for Two days/nights in heaven! If we ever get to the island again we will certainly stay here if it's available.
