Villa Matija - Eco-Friendly, Luxurious Getaway

Bedrooms 2
Half Baths1
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Villa Matija is nestled comfortably into the hillside overlooking Brewers Bay on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands

Allow yourself a little luxury and be eco-friendly at the same time! Villa Matija (pronounced ma-TEE-ya) sits above Brewers Bay with an outstanding view of Jost Van Dyke and several other smaller cays & islands. On a clear day you can see Puerto Rico (about 70 miles away)!

Stay at Villa Matija and enjoy the beauty and comfortable climate of the Caribbean with all the comforts of home at your fingertips. Villa Matija is very comfortable for up to four people. The house has two master suites only, one with a private deck & outdoor shower, the other with direct access to the villa's porch, deck & plunge pool. The downstairs bedroom can be set up with a king size bed or two twins. This makes Villa Matija ideal for two couples or a family of four. A modern kitchen and home theatre/living room with a 58' plasma TV and surround sound make it a great place to stay home and relax. Generous outdoor space flows effortlessly inside giving the feel of being outside while inside or the other way around if you prefer (great when there's a passing rain shower!)

Villa Matija is partially powered with solar energy using two solar hot water panels and twelve photovoltaic (PV) panels. Instead of a generator powered by fossil fuel Villa Matija has an alternative energy system that can run the house for modest amounts of time with little attention and quite some time with careful energy management. And don’t worry, our solar hot water is backed up by a traditional hot water heater that provides an abundant supply of hot water whatever time of day you need to shower. While both bedrooms have air conditioning, we encourage our guests to leave the windows open at night with the fan on and the AC off to experience the local climate. Most evenings are cool with very pleasant sleeping weather.

Brewers Bay beach, one of the most beautiful in the BVI, is just a 3 minute drive down the hill. Cane Garden Bay, another favorite BVI beach, is a short 10 minute drive. Road Town, the capital of the BVI is also a 10 minute drive away, yet when you’re at Villa Matija, you feel like you’re in another world!

Enjoy the beaches, snorkeling or just lounge at the house. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll be glad you chose Villa Matija as your home when you visit the BVI.

Views - Second to none

  • 4 of 5

If you are renting a house on Tortola, this is the one to get. The views off the back deck overlooking Brewers Bay with JVD in the distance are worth it on their own.

Rent their SUV, explore the northern coastline. Driving the roads are better than any rollercoaster at any theme park.

Tom and Jessica will make sure you have all you need during your stay.

Beautiful and relaxing Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

Villa Matija was an authentically beautiful property. It had everything we needed for the week and offered views of Brewer's Bay and Jost Van Dyke that will literally take your breath away. Our favorite part of the day was convening on the patio for our "sunset drink," and watching the sun fall into the ocean. Much to our surprise, we loved all the wonderful noises of the trees surrounding the property. It was like being in a treehouse. I've never slept better! The privacy of this place is unparalleled. We enjoyed the collection of board games and DVDs at night after the sun went down. The things you read about Tom and Jessica are all true. They were absolute professionals from the moment we inquired about renting the property all the way to when they met us at the Ferry terminal upon arrival to Road Town and had unpacked our groceries which we had arranged to be delivered from Bobby's. All in all, it was a relaxing and wonderful honeymoon and we would highly recommend renting this property for either a family or couples getaway. Also- quick shoutout to Journeys health spa who sent 2 wonderful massage therapists to our villa one morning for massages. Additionally, we very much enjoyed our day sail with Aristocat charters which took us to Norman Island and the Indians for snorkeling. A great day trip!

Beautiful home with fabulous views. location is great with easy access to Brewer's Beach. And hosts were terrific and met us at the ferry dock. Also, renting their personal car sure made things easy!

Great location, beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Villa Matija in May of 2017. Jessica was wonderful to work with, and very accommodating and helpful when our flight was delayed, then subsequently canceled. She met us at the ferry and we followed her to the villa which was exceptionally helpful.

The view of Brewer's Bay is delightful to wake up to every morning, not to mention the beach itself is peaceful and the water is crystal clear!

We truly spent most of our time outside, but inside was nicely appointed, and it is nice that both bedrooms have private bathrooms, plus an additional half bath near living room. There's plenty of outdoor seating, both upstairs and down.

Driving on the island can be tricky simply due to the many mountains, but take your time and you'll be fine. Make sure to drive out to Smuggler's Cove (a bit hard to find, but worth it!) We enjoyed dinner one night at Bananakeet. It's about a 15-20 minute drive from the house - go for a sunset dinner and you will not regret it.

Million-dollar view from a beautiful home that makes a great base to explore the island

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Tom and Jessica, were WONDERFUL! We rented their second car from them and they picked us up at the airport and guided us to the Villa. It is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. The pool was a little cool in early May, but in the heat of the day it was refreshing. The internet worked great and the AC kept the bedrooms very comfortable. The Villa overlooks Brewer's Bay (about a 6-7 minute drive), and there were mornings when were the only people on the beach. The snorkeling at Brewer's on the west end is fantastic - coral, sponges, a variety of fish, rays in the sandy portions, and we didn't even get to snorkel all areas because we were too busy going to new beaches each day. It's also very easy to drop down into Road Town (about 12 minute drive) and Cane Garden Bay (also about 12 minutes) if you don't mind driving the steep and winding roads. You cannot go wrong with this house. It was a big part of what made our 30th anniversary very special. Thanks again to Tom and Jessica for their hospitality.
