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
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.
My wife and I stayed at Little Mermaid for 4 days prior to sailing on a catamaran for a week. This wonderful peaceful setting enabled us to get over jet lag and prepare for our sailing trip. Jan was fantastic - helped us with all our needs and brought in groceries for our arrival. We wanted to stay after sailing for another 4 days but Little Mermaid was fully booked. Jan found us somewhere else for our next stay. We should have been braver on the internet and booked both periods! The accommodation is excellent and spacious - and Jan showed us round her other properties - book any of them, you will not be disappointed! We hired a car which I recommend for shopping, restaurants and sightseeing but the local beach is superb and an easy walk.
Jan's Little Mermaid was perfect for our family vacation filled with sun, sand and snorkeling. The setting on the mountain was quiet and peaceful and the views breathtaking by sunlight and moonlight. The walk to the private beach was beautiful and snorkeling was very good with mostly calm waters. Although we did not rent a car, car rental is probably the best option for this location. We also enjoyed our ferry ride to Virgin Gorda to snorkel The Baths. Jan was very attentive to our questions and provides over and above for her guests. In addition to the beautiful setting, views of the neighboring islands are spectacular when en route to and from Tortola. All in all, Little Mermaid was a wonderful place to stay!
Jan was really nice and even let us tag along with her when she drove to the store. Beautiful view and lots of space. Walking distance to the beach and a nice little pool to relax in when you get back. Would love to stay here again!
We were happy to return to the Mermaids, and have enjoyed ourselves even more. The first visit, two years ago, was spent in Mermaid Villa, and this year we were in the "Little Mermaid'. Both rentals are beautiful, comfortable and have everything you could need for a wonderful stay. The views are incredible and the soft winds kept us cool. Such a great way to enjoy Paradise, surrounded by flowers and peace! Although the owner, Jan, was on vacation for part of our stay, her 'house-sitters', Mark and Maggie, were always available for advice and company, and have become new additions to our list of Beef Island friends. Jan's return dinner, together with other guests, is a fine memory of the friendliness of this beautiful island. We can't wait to go back!
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.
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!
Nearby Trellis Bay, 5 minutes away by car) offers Art Shops, restaurants, bars, shopping, groceries and a Wind Surfing school with other activites. Ferries available to take you to other islands, restaurants, etc. Long Bay Beach below is walkable and driveable with paved road all the way and there is a reef for snorkeling . It is a great swimming beach and deserted most of the time because there are no restaurants and bars tp attract the crowds. It is also situated so that it is protected from the occasional North swells and currents during High Season. 10 minutes away, by car, there are at least 4 other beaches to enjoy.
