Overview

Tortola Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 or 3 Bedrooms; 1-2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6 +another one bedrm unit, detached

Mermaid Villa offers cool breezes and a pool alongside the patio, where you can eat outside, with a Gas BBQ handy. 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. A queen bed, and a king size bed (or twins, whichever you prefer) in the Main House and a self contained Guest House across

the pool has one bedroom, 1 bath, w/kitchen and private

patio. The 2 bedroom share a bathroom which has two sinks and a shower. The Guest House has a King (or

a family to vacation together, The pool is

between the two units. We will rent the two bedroom house without the Guest House and as a bonus, will

not rent the Guest House, so privacy is assured.

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.

wonderful views and comfortable accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Two couples spent a week at this lovely villa on Beef Island. The views from the lanai were breath taking and we spent many hours sitting in the shade by the pool. The location was near the airport, and watching the planes come and go was fun, the sounds of the engines in the distence not bothersome. We enjoyed the well equiped kitchen and cooked many of our evening meals there, not wanting to venture on the winding roads at night. The nearby beach was lovely, with shade and quiet waves lapping the shore. Having laundry facilities was very nice , and our gracious hostess, Jan, provided plenty of beach towels, a cooler, and some chairs for the beach- she even loaned us her snorkle gear! We enjoyed getting to know her and her 3 well mannered dogs who popped by to see what was for dinner most evenings. Fans in each room kept us comfortable without airconditioning. We can't wait to return!

A quiet and relaxing spot

  • 5 of 5

We spent 16 days here and it was a very comfortable villa. Easy walk down to the beach and a delightful pool to cool off in. Great outside patio with a BBQ. Convenient location on the East End of Tortola. Great spot for a quiet and relaxing vacation. Jan was a perfect host.

great property to rent!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks at Mermaid Villa and it was a blast! Jan was a wonderful host and very inclusive. We arrived on Thanksgiving day and Jan naturally invited us to have dinner with her friends and guests at a local joint. It was wonderful to meet her friends and got to know a bit more about island life through these long-term residents!

The property was very private, and the beautiful long bay beach was within walking distance. It was a great place to relax and de-stress. I'm going back in May and I would recommend this property to all my friends!

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.
