About the property

Smugglers' Cove, a secluded crescent beach is a short ride or walk on the other side of the hill.

Many restaurants and shops, from casual to fine, are also a short ride from the villa.

You will enjoy spectacular sunrises and sunsets overlooking Sir Francis Drake Channel and the islands of Norman, Peter, St. John, St. Thomas and Little Thatch.

Limin' House is the perfect place to renew your spirit, spend a relaxing vacation with your family or friends, or drink and dine accompanied by unsurpassed views.

About Susan J McDavit

I have been travelling to Tortola since the early 1980's. Limin' House was completed in 1995 and I have enjoyed sharing this home with many guests since 1996. It remains a haven for renewal and relaxation, for both myself and my guests.

Susan J McDavit purchased this villa in 1996

Why Susan J McDavit chose Tortola

Tortola is easily accessible from the U.S. The currency is the dollar and the language spoken is English. Every imaginable water sport is available including sailing, surfing, windsurfing, scuba and just floating in pristine water. The island is beautiful and safe.

What makes this villa unique

Limin' House is designed to accommodate families or couples. The dining/lounging verandah is centrally located and adjacent to both the pool and the kitchen. It is the favorite spot for entertaining and relaxing. Each bedroom has a private balcony and/or patio, so when privacy is preferred it is easy to find!

The views from this villa are outstanding and the amenities top notch. This was our second stay at Limin' House and the upgrades were many and noticeable proving that the villa is being maintained at a high level. I can't say enough good things and hope we get the opportunity to stay there again one day.

We enjoyed our stay at Limin House immensely. You can be happy sipping on a cocktail at the pool overlooking the beautiful Carribbean water at Sopers Hole Marina or sightseeing around the island. We enjoyed breakfast outside and our trips to the little beach right down the road. We had a beautiful patio outside our room and a hammock to take a little snooze. Susan and Don have coolers, beach chairs, floats to make your days care free. Snorkeling at the little beach was great. Bring snorkel gear if you have some. Great surfing and diving for those that enjoy those sports.

We took a catamaran ride on Kuralu - did some snorkeling and visited the Soggy Dollar Bar. Gary and Kate were great, they provide lunch, snorkel gear, and an open bar.

Weather was fantastic with a little breeze in the evening and swimming weather during the day. Cocktails at the Sugar Mill were delightful, breakfast at D Best Cup and Sebatians were very good. We can't wait to return!

Seriously awesome and beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th trip to Tortola, and this is by far the best place we have stayed. 3 bedrooms, each with their own private bathroom, plus a little studio apartment as a 4th bedroom plus bathroom and mini-kitchen. It has a nice swimming pool (actually pretty deep, maybe 7 feet at the deepest point?), lovely landscaping, and incredible views of all the sailboats at Soper's Hole and Frenchman's Key from the villa's perch on the mountain. Stove/oven was professional grade, and the outdoor grill was huge! The kitchen was the best-stocked with pans/plates/utinsils/small appliances of ANY VBRO house we have stayed in in the world! Bathrooms in the "west wing" have outdoor showers; lovely during the day or at night to shower under the stars! (though some animal/bird kept stealing the bar soap! Ha!) Beds were comfortable - kings were two twin beds put together, and all bedrooms had mosquito nets, air conditioners and fans. Wifi worked fine. Location was great - close to Soper's Hole and away from cruise ship traffic of Road Town, but within a half hour of many restaurants and beaches and walking distance to West End ferry terminal. Susan (owner) and Debs (manager) were really helpful before and during our stay with recommendations for restaurants, etc and were very responsive to our questions and emails. Restaurants nearby that we enjoyed were D'CoalPot (casual), Bananakeet (casual) and Sugar Mill Inn (fine dining). We enjoyed the beaches Cane Garden Bay (on a NON CRUISE SHIP DAY or around sunset!! otherwise it is miserably crowded) for SUP and relaxing (and Quito's there is also a good place to eat!), Brewer's Bay and Smuggler's Cove for snorkeling. We did a fun day sail with Kuralu which everybody else besides me enjoyed, and Captain Gary was very polite as I proceeded to retch over the side of his lovely vessel literally ALL DAY... :D We also had the MOST INCREDIBLE fresh cinnabuns from Susan's recommended baker Craig.


1. Water in the BVI tastes terrible no matter where we have stayed. :) A filtering water bottle like one by Camelback really helped the taste on this trip.

2. The driveway for this house is really steep and narrow, and for our SUV we had to back down it as there was no room to turn around. Have people stand outside and help you as you back down the first few times. :)

3. You can have Riteway, the main grocery store put provisions in the house to be there when you arrive - really helpful if you arrive at night!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for that wonderful review! As a note, there is an indentation at the back of the driveway. You can back into it and the proceed forward down the drive. Our property manager can show you the method!
