Owner / Property Manager purchased this villa in 2006
We had a awesome time spending 4 days of a family vacation on Tortola at this house. It was our first time to Tortola. The location was great since it was fairly quick access to many great beaches...Smugglers (for seclusion and snorkeling, and Nigels pop up beach bar), Long Bay (for some big waves), Cane Garden (for a busy beachside scene with plenty of on the beach bars and Callwells Rum distillery), and Brewers (also secluded and great snorkeling). And there are many great dining options nearby including d' Coalpot and Jeanes, and Bomba Shack to get drinks and Full Moon Party. West End is close for the ferry from/to the USVI, snorkel gear, shops, etc and we used Jerry's Car Rental which was simple and very friendly. When we weren't running around the island or taking a day trip to the Baths on Virgin Gorda, we were enjoying the incredible views and the pool at the house. Ging and Sylvia were both extremely helpful in getting us from the ferry to the grocery and the house, and going over all the odds and ends of the house and nearby festivities.
My family and I booked this house for five days - during our stay the refrigerator broke and all of our groceries (which were quite pricey on an island) were spoiled. We had to accommodate being at the house to meet repair man and stay until he left nearly 5 hours later.
During that time we emailed the owner and called the local contact and weren't really given any real solution or reimbursements.
There were ants in one of the main bedrooms, IN the bed - no one had any food in this room the entire trip.
On the last evening there the island lost power for 9 hours, though we knew that power was spotty in the island we did not realize the repercussions of the island losing power. It is a pretty miserable nights sleep with no fans due to no power, we opened our doors to try to get a breeze to make up for the lose of fans but then we gotten eaten up by mosquitos as there are no nets or screens on the doors. There is a net over the bed but they had holes in them which made them practically pointless.
In the morning we woke up to take showers before our long travel home and found that since the power had been out all night the water pumps could not muster up the power to bring water to any of the shower, faucets or toilets therefore we could not really enjoy our last morning in the house and had to leave early to get some breakfast and try to sponge bathe ourselves elsewhere. Again emailing the owner to which he suggested we scoop water our of the pool and bring it up the flight of stairs to dump it in the toilet reserve on the back of the toilet in order to flush. Which was quite disappointing as we paid a decent amount of money to stay in the home for 5 days to have these types of hiccups happen.
The house offers beautiful views and the pool is a nice bonus.
The top level is perfect but the lower 2 levels and what is considered the 'master' were pretty short of our expectations.
The driveway is no joke, we rented 2 four wheel drive cars, one of which we returned after the first day because we could barely make it up the driveway with one person in the car. The rest of the time in the larger SUV was a struggle to make it up.
Feb. 2016 was our 3rd stay at Tortola Adventure. We feel so at home here, perfect for our needs.
As month long visitors, we spend a lot of time at the villa enjoying the pool and also the marvelous views on the large porch overlooking Apple Bay with it's surfers and Jost Van Dyke.
We frequently cook at the villa using the well equipped kitchen & BBQ, taking advantage of local fish & lobster.
Bedrooms are comfortable and very private.
Our hostess, Sylvia goes out of her way to make our stay awesome.
The villa is conveniently located on the West End. We love our nearby visits to Sopers Hole, Smugglers beach, Sebastian's, Tropical Fusion & Sugar Mill restaurants.
All in all Tortola Adventure is the perfect place for us to unwind from busy lives at home, we do look forward each year to our next visit✈️🌞🌴😎.

Tortola was een leuke eiland voor snorkelen, en vooral voor water sport. We hadden echt leuk. Het huis heeft een mooie uitzicht en we konden lekker relaxen na een dag op de strand. In het huis kon je van alles vinden en was echt schoon toen we arriveren. En the most important very nice people! Thanks Silvia!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was everything advertised and a bit more. The kitchen had everything to easily prepare our meals, the porch afforded views that were much better than the pictures on the website. Looking over the edge of the swimming pool out over Apple Bay was very nice.
The rooms are not air conditioned but the fans kept us tolerably cool at night. The constant trade winds while we were there kept us almost completely bug free for the week, though some of that may have been due to the extended drought that the island is experiencing. There was loud music from the beach a couple of nights. Some of our party slept through it, some did not. Sylvia, the local contact, was very helpful.
We did get the recommended 4 wheel drive car and it did make getting up and down the driveway much more pleasant than just having 2 wheel drive would have been. The home itself is not handicap accessible.
The only improvement I would ask for is screens for the doors. But, that might not be practical as the trade winds may at times be to strong for screen doors.
This was the first time we encountered some disappointing surprises booking through VRBO. Will say first of all that Evolve Vacations was great at responding to my initial inquiry and made the booking process a breeze. Also, the owner of the villa was very pleasant and responsive. If you were to rate the villa exclusively for its spectacular view of the rolling hills and the ocean below and it's private location still within reach to some very good dining and great beaches, the rating would go off the charts. The pictures on the VRBO website accurately depict the view you will most definitely enjoy. What it does not mention or show however is that the 2 main bedrooms are quite removed from that view. More specifically, they are located below the main living area and do not afford either the view or the comfort that we anticipated. Aside from feeling dark and isolating, one of the bedrooms had a wall of doors that could be fully opened for fresh air and the tropical breeze. Sounds great in theory, but since there are no screens on the doors, you are at the mercy of the hungry mosquitos (the mosquito net was inadequate) & we felt a little vulnerable/not secure leaving doors wide open sleeping on the ground level. The other bedroom (located even further below the house), did have screens on the windows, however the windows were small so there really is no view). The other 'annoyance' with this 2nd bedroom was its' 'non-suite'- bathroom(!) located on the other side of the stairwell. Didn't much enjoy having to 'hike' outside and across the hall in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. We accepted the rather odd layout and 'closed in'/dark and rustic vibe of the bedrooms but were quite disappointed as we were really looking forward to a higher standard of comfort that we had anticipated. The main living area of the villa was well equipped with necessities and was clean. Wi-Fi was perfect. Would describe the décor as comfortable leaning to rustic - much like a cottage. Would have helped if the oven and the BBQ was working properly. Also, the exterior of the property overall appeared a little neglected & needs some TLC ( 'sticky' door hinges, stairwells looks dingy/dirty, broken outdoor patio tiles, the pool lounge chairs on arrival were scattered randomly....small but important 'improvements' that this beautiful property deserves! Enjoyable stay overall, but hopefully this review is both helpful and constructive.
