MURRAY HOUSE, ELEGANT, QUIET AND SPACIOUS VILLA

Tortola Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Murray House is a spacious and comfortable villa that is conveniently located in Long Bay, West End. The views are beautiful of course, and all rooms except the bathrooms, have ocean views. The newly decorated accommodations are housed in 3 pavilions surrounding the fantastic pool deck and access to the beach below is just a 3 or 4 minute walk.....to a mile of white sand beach! This villa is particularly suited for guests who have difficulty getting around as the Master Suite is on the ground floor which has no steps at all.

From the driveway (which comfortably parks 2 cars), you enter the Great Room with it’s large and comfortably cushioned elephant bamboo furniture for at least 8 guests. Across the room 3 sets of large glass doors open to reveal a large covered porch and ocean views of Jost Van Dyke , Sandy Cay and Green Cay. Large powerful fans silently cool the room with the ocean breezes which flow through the 3 walls of open double doors and the 1 wall of windows. There is a 32” flatscreen TV with DVD player and DirectTV for your entertainment. The shady porch area is an ideal spot for reading quietly in the shade with 2 large chairs and ottomans and it also has a secondary dining table and chairs.

This porch leads around to the large pool deck which is partially covered, offering guests space in the sun or shade on the 4 webbed loungers and 2 webbed upright chairs.

Also leading onto the pool deck is the large kitchen, which offers all the usual conveniences except a dishwasher. The laundry facilities are for your use and are housed just off the kitchen as is a 1/2 bathroom and separate access to the driveway. The built-in gas grill is under the covered porch leading from the kitchen to the covered dining area with seating for 8.

As previously mentioned, the Master Suite is on the ground floor, next to the pool. It has a king size four-poster bed of elephant bamboo and a small private porch with chairs and ottomans for 2. There is a 32” flatscreen TV with DirectTV and a large bathroom with walk-in shower and twin basins.

Winding steps from the pool deck lead up to the 2nd and 3rd suites which share a large deck overlooking the pool and ocean beyond. The 2nd suite has a king size bed, AC, 27” flat screen TV with DirectTV and the bathroom has a private outdoor stone-wall shower.

The 3rd suite has a twin beds, a 27” flat screen TV with Direct TV and bathroom with shower.

Murray House is a great choice for anyone looking for the quiet of Belmont and West End but the proximity to the beach and restaurants that Long Bay offers.

There is a cell phone for your use with $5 credit which you are welcome to top-up. Wifi. All bed linens, towels, pillows, mattresses, and 32” TVs are new as of November 2011.

WHAT AN AMAZING HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This was my husband and I's 3rd time visiting the BVI and the Murray House was by far the nicest vacation home I have ever stayed in, period. The West End is our preferred location and this home was so conveniently located...high enough up the hill for spectacular views, but close enough to walk down to the beach or Long Bay's restaurants, Smuggler's, a must do beach day is a short drive right around the corner, and many of the other favorite spots on that end of Tortola...too many to list.

We had the room off the pool which was so unique. I LOVE the open air concept and the separate pavilion style architecture really lends itself to individual couples/families privacy if traveling with others. We were traveling with our good friends who stayed in the other king suite and we really did have all the privacy and space we could dream of being parents of small toddlers that we had both left at home for the first time. That was key. Along the fact that the kitchen is well equipped, the furniture is very cozy and you have all the creature comforts of home except you are in paradise!

Sam was excellent- from booking to assisting through our stay with anything we needed. She really made renting a home vs. staying in a resort such a treat and so super easy!!! I would highly recommend the Murray House and any of Sam's other properties she manages if your are coming to Tortola. We are already planning our return trip where Sam will surely be on board again!

Many thanks and until the next... P.S. Don't forget to look in the pool shed for pool toys!

MILLERS - COLORADO

  • 5 of 5
We were met at the ferry dock by Sam and she had arranged the rental car which was waiting so everything was easy from the beginning. We were amazed as we arrived at the house. The setting was beautiful, the views were outstanding and the house was very nice and comfortable - the photos really don't do it justice. The Long Bay end of Tortola is definitely the place to be - quiet and away from the cruise ship day trippers. Third time in Tortola and by far the best place we have stayed.

We had a wonderful time in Tortola and surrounding islands! The Murray House made our trip! The house was open, spacious, clean, and well-decorated. The location is ideal. We would rent this home again in a minute!

OUR STAY AT THE MURRAY HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent the Christmas Holiday in Tortola at the Murray House. This house has the most amazing views. We loved sitting on the covered porch in the evenings, and our children loved the pool and the outdoor showers. We also took advantage of the Long Bay resort, which has several amenities for a small fee. The house is extremely clean and the managers were so helpful suggesting restaurants and places of interest. We have been to several islands in the Caribbean, and this trip to Tortola and the Murray House tops them all! The house probably isn't great for families with small children, as there are stone staircases and the bedrooms open to the outdoors, but it was the perfect spot for our family (our children are 13, 11, and twins 7).

BEAUTIFUL HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
It was our first stay in the Caribbean and this place was SPECTACULAR!
The photos doesn't do this place justice. The Murray house was very secluded, quiet and romantic and the views of Jost Van Dyke were surreal. This place is the definition of relaxation. Comfortable canopy beds, beautiful horizon pool, chefs kitchen close proximity to the beach and taxi. Sam and the Murray house really made our honeymoon special! We will def be back!

NOT A DISSAPPOINTMENT

  • 5 of 5
We have been renting villas in the Caribbean for 20+ years and this is now one of our favorites. Newly renovated, it is as nice as the pictures depict (which after 20 years of renting villa's is not always the case). We were surprised with the amount of kitchen gadgets and household supplies. Generally most villas provide you with the basic equipment and then enough supplies for a day or two. Not this villa. If we needed it we found it. Never once did we find ourselves running to the store for paper towels or dish detergent. The beds and linens were all top notch as were the electronics. Most importantly the view was unbelievable from any part of the home inside or out. The location was perfect! Not only sitting atop what we thought to be the nicest beach on the island it also sits atop (and less than a minutes walk down the hill) a resort that for a small fee you can make use of all their amenities.
While the purpose of the review is for the villa we would be remiss if we did not mention the Property Manager. Her professionalism, friendliness and knowledge of the island were invaluable. The manager went above and beyond. Never once did I send an email that wasn't responded to within hours. When our coffee pot broke she was there at the crack of dawn the next morning with a brand new one making sure no one woke up to no coffee. A true godsend after a wonderful evening on the veranda sipping too many rum punches.
All in all this was a wonderful property that we hope to visit again and would definitely recommend it to our friends and family. A truly great Villa, I know you won't be disappointed!
