Paul and Judy- we were so glad to have rented the Crows Nest from you.

Perfect for a romantic couple getaway.We will forever remember the

breath-taking view of the harbor from our porch.We really appreciated

all of the thoughtful and convenient touches the Crows Nest offered

Paul and Judy met in 1973 and have been going strong ever since. After moving to 'the islands' in 1986 to run a 76' wooden ketch they stayed active in the marine trades for twenty four years. In that time Paul, a woodworker and carpenter, and Judy, the interior decorator and landscape architect, took ten years to build the Century House Villa and Crows Nest Guest house. This labor of love was designed by Michael Arneborg a prolific architect for the area. The Crows Nest was meant to be the 'rental we would want to discover for our own' Paul and Judy will bid you a warm welcome and will give you as much or as little advice as you need as you discover 'natures little secret' BVI Tourist Board.

Judith A. Carrell purchased this cottage in 1989

Boungainvilleas, Palm trees, Frangipani, and stonework frame the water views from your verandah overlooking Sir Frances Drakes Channel.

Watching the sunrise over Sir Frances Drakes Channel while planning your day and futures while savouring morning coffee and tea in the hot tub.

Seeing a 43 meter megayacht dock at the marinas down below.

Having a 'sun downer' from the verandah while seeing the evening sky descend around you.

WHAT A SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
We have been down to Tortola many times before but this was one of the best. Paul and Judy were lovely hosts. The Crow's Nest was a perfect home base. The days were spent at smugglers cove just over the hill. Evenings were spent enjoying cocktails on the deck while the sun set before we headed to nearby restaurants (Fish & Lime is just down the hill). We are a young active couple and where able to easily access all the hiking, surfing, and fishing Tortola has to offer.

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
After bareboat sailing the BVI for nine days, we chose the Crow's Nest for a little R&R. We were so glad we did! The cottage was cute and equipped with everything you could possibly need! Whether having coffee on the veranda watching the sun rise, or soaking in the hot tub under the stars, every day was magical there. Especially enjoyed the outdoor shower, the thoughtful niceties that were there, Doodles, and Judy & Paul's hospitality. We will always remember super bowl Sunday 2014 not for the game itself, but spending it at the Crow's Nest having hot wings and drinks! Would definitely recommend this place and hope to go back next time we are in Tortola!

THE PERFECT RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was absolutely perfect in every way! The fabulous multi-colored gardens were a joy to they eyes. We were perched so high in the mountainside that the views and breezes were wonderful. The stars at night were a sight to behold while relaxing in the hot tub. The cottage was immaculate and included so many extra touches to make a guest feel right at home. Judy and Paul were such friendly and attentive hosts, and always available. We especially enjoyed visits from their small, friendly dog, Doodle! The outside shower was so exhilarating and made you feel at one with nature. Very close to ferry and restaurants and Soper's Hole Marina were you can take day trips to other islands (Jost Van Dyke and Virgin Gorda were both fabulous). Close to best snorkel beach, Smuggler's. Rented a 4 wheel drive from Jerry's and that went very smoothly. The West End was in our opinion the best end of the island! Go to Frenchman's Restaurant for the Sunday Brunch which is delightful! We would recommend Crow's Nest without hesitation!

LOVELY WEST END COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely time we had staying at the Crow's Nest! The cottage was as advertised -- and more, because pictures just can't do it justice. Paul and Judy are wonderful hosts - Paul actually picked us up at the ferry dock and helped us arrange for a rental car. They have excellent knowledge of Tortola and were very helpful with places to see and where to eat.

While the listing doesn't state it explicitly, you definitely need a rental car, and there are a few stairs, but it was very manageable. The cottage itself is the perfect size for a couple, extremely clean, very well appointed and decorated. You won't be lacking for anything. Thanks, again for a wonderful stay!

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place! Everything you could want - views, comfort, beautiful beaches. Paul & Judy are great hosts. We looked at many places on VRBO but this is the BEST and perfect size cottage for a couple. Very clean, well appointed, charming, romantic. If we returned to the island, this is where we'd stay. The photos caught our attention immediately and everything in the listing was accurate.
We certainly recommend this property. There are so many activities, restaurants...We especially enjoyed a day sail to Jost Van Dyke where we just drove down the hill from the cottage to the marina in Sopers Hole and jumped on the boat. Coming in and out on the ferry from St. Thomas is the way to go - very convenient and you can call ahead to rent a vehicle which was left for us at the ferry dock and be on your way to the Crows Nest and adventures. This property exceeded our expectations.

The Crows Nest Guest House is located in a tropical landscape setting adjacent to and slightly higher then the Century House Villa which overlooks Sopers Hole, West End, a natural harbor and anchorage for many private and charter boats for the BVI's.

We recommend guests fly into St. Thomas USVI and take the ferry over to West End, Tortola. Make sure to arrive in STT by 3:00 pm to make the connection.
