Tortola Villa Rental Photos and Description

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

If you like quiet and sandy white, you will love Long Bay Beach below Mermaid Villa. You can walk or drive; it is paved all the way. 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

twins), bath and small kitchen. All linens, dishes and beach towels are furnished for both houses. This is perfect for 2 couples that want privacy or 3 couples 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.

Please look at the up-to-date calendar to see what is available. So many renters have returned year after year and, of course, new ones are welcome, too.

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

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.

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.

We have stayed all over the island of Tortola and this location was perfect for two couples! Jan was a wonderful host and we hope to go back next year! Long Beach was beautiful and very convenient to go down for walks. We really loved the lanai and the pool that allowed for daily swims and relaxing.

We recently stayed at Mermaid Villa with our two young children and it was perfect. Jan makes everything so easy and is very helpful, she even had our groceries unpacked before we arrived. The pool is very clean and so great to have when you don't feel like trekking to the beach. The beach is an easy walk but a little more difficult coming back uphill. It's worth it though for a practically private beach with gorgeous water and soft clean sand. The view from the house is amazing and getting around without a car was not an issue. We'll definitely be back!

Mermaid Villa was wonderful

We stayed for five days on Tortola at Mermaid Villa. The villa is on Beef Island, in a quiet, secluded area of the island. You can walk to the beach, but it is a little strenuous if you are carrying any beach items because it is uphill on the return walk. The beach is quiet with beautiful, fine sand and clear water. Mermaid Villa is well equipped, the kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meals. We were concerned about not having air conditioning, but there was always a nice eastern breeze and there are ceiling fans in all the rooms. There is a lot of space in the villa, as well as a private swimming pool, though we never used the pool. There is a washer and dryer, which is always a plus. Jan is a wonderful host. She has lived on the islands for over 40 years and so she has wonderful history and recommendations. There was a earth tremor while we were there and Jan came to check on us. It is evident that shereally enjoys and cares about her tenants. Don't be concerned about the airport being close by, you really do not hear the planes much at all. Wonderful place, enjoy!

The Mermaid Villa is everything one could ask for a BVI vacation. Spacious indoor and outdoor living areas, stunning views, swimming pool, privacy, comfortable bed (great pillows!), cool breezes, close to Long Bay beach and a short drive to Trellis Bay restaurants, gift shops and a small market. The owner, Jan, is a wonderful host, and a remarkable woman who has spent 40+ years on the island and knows everything! The only drawback is that one has to leave, eventually! This was our 9th trip to the BVI, and the Mermaid Villa is the best place we've stayed and such a reasonable price. Don't forget to sample the chicken roti at the Roti Hut in Trellis Bay, and the outstanding dinners at De Loose Mongoose as well. Can't wait for our next visit!

Our paradise home named Mermaid Villa

Scary to rent a villa without ever seeing it first! Our worry transformed itself into pure delight. We expected to find no less than what we had seen on the listing descriptions and photos and we were in no way disappointed. Jan is a great host and was discreet, responsive, helpful and generous. When you arrive, you meet Jan the lady landlord and when you leave you feel like you are parting with a friend.. The villa is very beautiful, well kept and very private which was one of our top wish. Access to the beach and walking paths are easy and most enjoyable. The pool is just the perfect cherry on the sunday. I could go on an on and on but I guess what sums it all up is that we are already making plans to return next year for a minimum of two weeks. A dream that will keep us excited for the next twelve months. Till me meet again Jan, take care of yourself! HUGS F and M
