About Ben Bamford
Jessica is a native born Tortolan while Ben is originally from Cornwall in the UK. We live a few miles along the coast from Kerensa with our two children.
Ben Bamford purchased this Villa in 1998
Why Ben Bamford chose Tortola
We bought the land in 1998 because of the seclusion and the amazing views and then built the house a few years later. We originally planned to build several villas on the large plot but loved the fact that Kerensa was so private that we decided to keep it that way.
What makes this Villa unique
Apart from the stunning view one of the main features is the absolute privacy and seclusion. The spectacular sunset reflections over the pool can be surreal at times and quirk of it's geographical position and local weather patterns means that a rainbow will often form briefly in the morning over Anderson Point just in front of the house. Its a nice way to start the day.

Wonderful once again!
We stayed here before Irma and were so sad when we heard that it was destroyed. Well, The Bamford’s have rebuilt better than ever. It’s so beautiful, quiet, tranquil, clean... we were there 4 days and never left the house. So sad to leave.
We rented this villa for the first of two weeks in the Virgin Islands. Kerensa was our home while we explored the BVIs. As beautiful as the online pictures are, they really don't do this place, and its view, full justice. Even more impressive was Ben's responsiveness and helpfulness throughout the process, from booking to arrival and departure. I looked around at several places on vrbo, but extremely glad I decided on this one. Stop looking and book now!
Amazing property with views that are astounding. Relaxing in the hammock with the waves crashing on the rocks below was one of our favorite experiences. Of course, the twinkle lit pathway to the hot tub accompanied by adorable lizards came a close second. Wait, the outdoor shower with the beautiful garden view needs to be mentioned too.
Just one word - Tortola is the place to go when you want to deserted beaches. If you're looking for crowds and party atmosphere, go elsewhere. The roads are steep and twisty and not for the well endowed with alcohol. We loved Brewer's Bay which was a very short trip away.
Ummm, Ben, some scissors would help...just saying.
We had a wonderful time at this secluded villa. The views are breathtaking. No need to go out for a fancy dinner when you have this kind of view. Enjoyed the hot tub at night looking at the stars.
Would highly recommend if your looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Absolutely the BEST!!
If you are looking for a private retreat with a one bedroom villa and a perfect pool... this is for you! Owner is very attentive! Great escape!!!
Panoramic views, infinity pool, hot tub, updated appliances and much more - in conjunction with the professionalism and warm hospitality from Ben and Jessica - made for the best honeymoon imaginable for 7 nights at this amazing property.
Its remoteness permitted a special level of intimacy and really allowed us to disconnect from the real world. Having a rental vehicle allowed us to explore the island i.e. Smugglers Cove, Cane Garden Bay, Brewers Bay and Road Town....but equally enjoyable and relaxing was simply kicking back at Kerensa. We did a lot of snorkeling and also enjoyed day trips to The Baths at Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke. Private chef and in-villa massage services are all available.
Many thanks to Ben and Jessica for helping make our honeymoon so memorable.
