There is a washer/dryer, a full kitchen with all amentiies, including a dishwasher; private telephone, and wireless for your computer. There are three bedrooms.

About The Owner

I have been in the rental business since 1985

but have lived on Little Mountain since 1972.

and after being widowed I started the rental

business. Snorkeling, diving, sailing have been my favorite things to do, but now I mostly concentrate on my rental business.

The Owner purchased this villa in 1972

Why The Owner chose Tortola

We chose the location on Little Mountain because it was near the airport. My husband was a pilot and we had a helicopter that we kept right on the property and used it for island hopping, we had heli-pads at some of the restaurants; visited all the beaches and flew to the USVI quite often. Of course now there are many FAA/BVI rules that would prohibit that type of flying these days but we couldn't have picked a nicer spot to live.

What makes this villa unique

The view from Mermaid Villa is spectacular.

You look down on Long Bay Beach which is

almost always deserted because there are no restaurants and bars on it. There is a reef for snorkeling off to one side and it is quite protected from the Northern swells that occur in the winter months. The road to Long Bay is paved, so you can walk down or drive to the beach. We have several good restaurants and beaches no more than 10 minutes away, so no long

drives at night. Trellis Bay nearby offers unique art and gift shops, a windsurfing

school, a grocery, and several restaurants

and bars, Try de Loose Mongoose Restaurant

and Beach Bar for some casual, island flavor. There are ferries to take you to many of the other islands. Nearby East End Village offers you grocery stores,

boats, car rental companies. There are

churches just minutes away from Little

Mountain. Road Town, our Capital, is just

20 minutes away where you can shop on

a larger scale.

Villa with a view

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a quiet peaceful place to get away relax and rest easy this is a wonderful spot! Traveled by myself and felt safe and secure. Ha ha even in the side swipe of hurricane "Gonzo". Sun shines in every morning for a gently wake up - sit out on balcony with amazing views while having your morning coffee. House is clean and equipped to prepare meals with nice sized grocery about 10 minutes away in Road Town. There is a great beach just short walk down hill from house or you may drive there. I was off season so it felt like that was my private beach!! Photos are accurate although better in person. I did rent a car to venture around and buy provisions. Jan is a wonderful host and if interested she has lots of interesting tales to tell of island life but if you wish to be alone and not bothered she would be that person also. I will be planning another trip for next year! Thanks Jan !

Where to begin...

  • 5 of 5
Mermaid Villa is a special place. Hand built by the owners, you can feel the love and care in every aspect of the place. Jan was incredibly kind and helpful. The villa, pool, view are simply breathtaking. The beds and linens top quality. Kitchen has everything you can think of. Cooling off in the pool is heaven. It is a short walk down to a beautiful beach. Do yourself a favor and stay here. You will be writing a review better than this one.

Lovely villa, a great pool, incredible views

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Jan's Mermaid Villa with our kids & we all loved this place. Great layout, very comfortable, incredible view. The beach is an easy walk -- it's one of the nicest beaches I've ever seen. We walked back & forth at least twice a day - it's an easy drive, too, if you're carrying stuff. We rented a car from "dead man" & it couldn't have been easier - it was a really nice car, super clean that he left for us at the ferry terminal. The supermarkets have everything you need. Highly recommend the villa - it would be a good place for a larger group if you rent both the villa & the other little house - the pool is between them. Next time we would probably fly to Beef island as the ferry was pretty time consuming - loved this place!

Lovely views, breeze, all comforts of home

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful stay at both Little Mermaid and Mermaid Villas. Everything you could need was provided as this was owners home. She's lived there for 42 years, so she has lots to tell, and very diligent in addressing any concerns we had. Even offered her services to fix my sister's beach bag. Do recommend having a car unless you're really physically fit. Lack of air conditioning not a problem with all the breeze and fans.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5
This Villa has it all: views, pool, fully equipt and it even comes with your own dogs (actually they are the owners). The owner here, Jan is wonderful and very accommodating, bringing you anything you could possibly need. The unit itself was beautifully furnished, especially the bedrooms, and very comfortable. It was a bit further from that ocean than we would have liked and we really needed a car. I was traveling with my 82 year old mom who is pretty spry but could not walk uphill from the beach. The beach below this property was Long Bay and was just beautiful-one of the best snorkels of my life! Its a long strip of powdery white sand with plenty of shade and few people. Such a pleasant place and I miss it already!
