About Judy Rubino
Judy and Bill manage Palmview and Prettyview from their home in Florida. We have very high standards of comfort, cleanliness, and aesthetics. We are constantly working to improve the gardens as well as the houses.
Judy Rubino purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Judy Rubino chose East End
We bought the property in 2002. Prettyview Villa was built in 2009 as a luxury guest house in the same style and comfort as the main house, Palmview Villa. Lambert Beach, in our opinion, is the best beach on Tortola.
What makes this Villa unique
Prettyview is a romantic getaway. The sound of the waves crashing on the beach; the rain falling on the metal roof; the cockadoodle doo of the roosters on the other side of the hill; the warm Caribbean breezes; the tropical gardens filled with a large variety of flowers and plants - are all reasons to stay at Prettyview and fall in love all over again.

Awesome place. The most beautiful view I’ve ever seeing in my life
Perfect location, amazingly maintained property, wonderfully responsive owners
A special spot in the East End. Locals and visitors alike were very impressed we got to stay at Lambert for its quiet local feel. Prettyview has everything you could ask for. The outdoor shower is more spa than the name would imply. Kitchen is incredibly well equipped. Whether adventure seeking on VG or JVD, or just taking a simple trip out to Scrub Island and Marina Cay, both ports are less than 20 minutes away. Very happy we stayed and cant wait to return! A special mention to Red Rock and Marche out in Trellis Bay. Best food we have eaten in a while - duck like tenderloin and tuna that rivals the best kitchens in the world. Thank you to all the amazing people that call the BVI home!
Romantic Retreat with a Gorgeous View
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. (late May 2018). The villa is tucked into the mountain-side and seems to be built to incorporate the huge boulders peaking out from the lush gardens. We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay including a well stocked kitchen. The outdoor shower was a bonus that I enjoyed way more than I thought I would - loved taking a shower while viewing the sunset. The stairs are a bit daunting at first (it wouldn't be suitable for those with mobility issues) but the views are worth it.
Judy, the owner, is very helpful and provides lots of information and recommendations for the area.
Awesome Private Villa with a Million Dollar View!
We were fortunate to stay at Pretty View for two weeks in July and absolutely enjoyed every minute of our vacation. The view is stunning. Every morning you wake up and can see Lambert Bay and Guana Island right from the comfortable bed. We appreciated all the included essentials like the cell phone, roku for music and movies, bluetooth speaker, portable radio and boom box, movies, beach chairs, cooler, shopping bags, coffee, etc. We used the kitchen and BBQ quite often. We bought groceries at Rightway Foods and One Mart Superstore in Road Town. There is very nice landscaping and plants and flowers on the property. We saw lots of birds, lizards, a chicken family foraging in the trees. While we were there the gardener was planting some palm trees on the road which really adds to the character of this tropical paradise. We rented a Terios SUV from Dede's Car Rental which was perfect for the narrow roads. We took the free ferry to Marina Cay and made a visit to Scrub Island. Went to Virgin Gorda and rented a small SUV and drove the whole island and visited the Baths. We enjoyed visiting Tortoya very much and liked the location of the villa. We felt safe and relaxed for our stay and would definitely not hesitate in staying at Prettyview when we return. The local people are very friendly and are helpful if you need directions to find places. We loved staying at Prettyview as it was a perfect vacation for us!
Relaxing, Very Private, Gorgeous View
We loved this little cottage and the absolutely beautiful view of the ocean, Guana Island, boats, and the beach below. No complaints at all. A couple suggestions. If you rent a small car it is much easier to deal with the narrow, narrow roads and the small parking spot at the villa. We had some trouble finding the place. The police station is a good landmark, but it is not marked as you drive from Road Town. We found it easily after we turned around and came back from Beef Island. Take a good look at the picture of the sign for Turtle Bay Resort. We recognized it from the picture online. Also, there is no house number, so we found it by recognizing the parking spot at the bottom of the stairs. Study the pictures before you go. It is easy to find your way after one drive. Road signs are almost nonexistent. It might be handy to take a GPS (not your smart phone which has no data there) to help find things the first time. The resort is closed, so no pool and no restaurant at the resort. Appears that will be the case for a long time. However, with no one at the resort, the beach is barely used at all. At times we were the only ones there. Chairs and umbrellas available all the time. No crowds. Loved the outdoor shower with the great view. Loved the sound of the surf at night. Altogether, a very nice week.
Fabulous location and all first class
The villa is beautiful and finished with all high end fittings. The outside shower is a great bonus which we loved. Comfy bed. Real nice kitchen and well outfitted. Spectacular views. The resort was closed for rehabbing while we were there so we couldn't use the pool but the upside was we had the beach to ourselves. And that is really huge on Tortola these days. Great location to get anywhere you want. Just a wonderful vacation that we hope to repeat again and soon.
Easy to visit other islands. Free ferry to Scrub Island and Marina Cay. Ferries to Virgin Gorda, Peter Island, Norman Island, Jost Van Dyke and USVI St. John.
