I have owned and operated this property as rental units for 29 years and have lived on this Estate for almost 42 years. I have. sailed, boated, snorkeled, dived, and owned a gift shop. My time now is devoted to rentals. I came from Barcelona,

NY on Lake Erie and have loved living here all these years.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1972

My husband and I bought this property and when I became a widow, decided to start a

rental business. My husband was a pilot and we had a helicopter and just flew around these islands. Being near the airport has been especially nice for many

reasons.

The beach below is beautiful, either for swimming or walking. and I never get tired of looking at it. Beyond is the airport making it easy to arrive and depart. And

beyond the airport are the beautiful islands in the background with boats sailing along.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We cannot thank Jan enough for the amazing hospitality. The place was amazing, spacious and well stocked with everything we needed. The view was the most relaxing and wonderful. The beach was basically ours for the 5 days we were there. I would joke that it was crowded when we saw 2 people on it. I would recommend a car because the island is an amazing place to explore.

Month long stay was exceptional

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I wanted to "live" on Tortola for a month in March so we looked for a place that was quiet, spacious, and well equipped to live in for awhile. We found all this and more at Little Mermaid.

The unit is well laid out with a very open design. Inside Little Mermaid was very clean and had all of the amenities of home. A great porch area looks out over our favorite beach on Tortola, Long Bay beach. The beach is within easy walking distance of Little Mermaid and most of the time we had it to ourselves.

We used the ATM located at the airport which was convenient. A grocery store about a mile or so away had all of the groceries that we needed. Trellis Bay is less than a mile away and is home to some good cafes, beach bars and ferry terminal for trips to Virgin Gorda.

The owner, Jan, lives above Little Mermaid and was incredibly gracious and helpful as we found our way around. She takes very good care of the property and is attentive to her guests but was very respectful of our privacy. Jan has lived on Tortola for 40 years and is a great source of information for visitors.

I highly recommend this property - clean, spacious, quiet, and very well located. Our month long stay seemed like it flew by. We're ready to go back!

Fussy Vermonters found a Great View, Privacy, and a Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5
Jan’s ‘Little Mermaid Cottage’ is THE place to stay for a tropical paradise vacation. We are a retired couple who stayed here for a week in January, 2014, and would come here again in a heartbeat. The property description is accurate on all points, and the photos give a true representation of the cottage…inside and out, it really is this beautiful!!

It is very conveniently located: close to plenty of good restaurants, a well-stocked grocery store, ferry service to other islands, and barely 5 minutes from a nearly deserted, beautiful white sand beach (Long Beach), good for swimming and snorkeling. A bigger town is just 20-30 minutes away in Road Town, but once you get here, you probably won't want to go back there!

The spacious cottage is nicely and comfortably furnished, with plenty of room to make yourself right at home. All equipment, appliances, etc, including wifi, worked well will no issues, and the entire cottage was very clean and comfy. The kitchen is large and very well equipped with everything you need to cook your own meals, (although with the good restaurants nearby, you may not want to cook every night!). The bed is quite comfortable, and the large bathroom is spotless. Maybe the best feature of this cottage is the patio/veranda, where you can enjoy the flowers and soak up the sun and tropical breezes day or night, and never be too hot or too cold. The views are spectacular. You can see a number of other islands, watch sailboats and yachts cruising through, and watch the small planes at the Beef Island Airport. (This is a small and relatively quiet airport, by the way, and we did not find it overly noisy or bothersome in any way; instead, we enjoyed watching the activity there.)

You won’t find a friendlier or more helpful host than Jan. She’s lived here many years and knows everything there is worth knowing about the area and its people.
We highly recommend this cottage; you won’t be disappointed. Jan has thought of everything.

Great value getaway, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5
Jan, my hostess, could not have been more accommodating - she booked me in at late notice, put me up in her spare room for the one extra night resulting from my early arrival, fed me, and generally could not do enough to help.

The property looks east over the airport, which is not busy enough to be a disturbance - meaning you get to see the sunrise, and have wonderful morning sun. In the heat of the day and in the afternoons the property is perfectly cool, with refreshing tradewinds. For afternoon sun I went to the beach below the property - 1 minute by car, 5 minutes or so by foot.

The beach at long bay provides sheltered swimming, a 1/2 mile stretch to run on the beach, and rarely has more than a few locals at weekends, deserted during the week.

The shops and restaurants of East End are just 5 minutes away by car (Red Rock is excellent), and Road Town, the small but bustling capital, is just 20 minutes away.

The property itself is spacious, clean and comfortable - a very large and well-equipped kitchen, comfy sitting area with cable TV, and a large bedroom and bathroom. The washer and dryer, combined with the discretely-located outdoor clothes line, make for easy facilities also.

Overall a perfect spot for an uncomplicated holiday, great value, super-friendly hostess, and well-connected to the airport and the rest of Tortola.
