Van Dyke House is situated ideally for beach lovers, just yards from the beautiful Long Bay Beach, but tucked up a discreet driveway and behind foliage that makes the villa private from passers-by. The stunning views of the North Shore include Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Cay and Green Cay. First class surfing can be found at Apple Bay, your neighbor to the east, and fantastic snorkeling is found at Smuggler’s Cove, the next Bay to the West. Open up the large sliding patio doors to feel the breezes and hear the ocean, or close up and chill out with the AC found in all 3 bedrooms as well as the main living area.

All in all, Van Dyke House has a lot to offer, not least the proximity to the beach on an island where there are few villas available on the water. Van Dyke House offers a whole lot of accommodation, in excellent condition for a great price!


Through the front door you enter the open-plan living area, which is light and airy due to the 2 sets of patio doors. One set lead to the wooden front deck which faces the ocean and offers sun loungers and additional seating. Partly shaded, this is where guests tend to spend most of their time, listening to the ocean just yards away with a cool drink in hand, admiring the views.....

The second set of patio doors lead directly ahead to the dining porch, also offering ocean views and housing a dining table for 6 and gas BBQ. The living room has a flat screen TV and cable. Up a few steps from the living room is the dining area offering seating for 6 and the kitchen which is equipped with a gas oven, coffee-maker and blender.

The beautiful tiled pool, is serviced once a week and the terraced pool deck offers another option for dining beneath the bougainvillea or sunning on loungers, again with ocean views.

The villa is equipped with AC throughout.

Sleeping accommodations

The Master Suite is accessed from the dining porch and offers a large bedroom with king size bed and sliding patio doors opening onto a smaller personal deck with ocean views. There is AC, cable TV and DVD and the en-suite bathroom with large shower also has a door leading directly to the pool deck.

The second bedroom is also accessed from the dining porch and has an en-suite bathroom with shower, and sliding patio doors onto the pool deck. It has AC and the twin beds can be made up as a king if preferred.

The third bedroom is smaller and is accessed by some outdoor stairs leading down from the dining porch. It also has AC and it’s own bathroom facilities. Please note that this 3rd bedroom is definitely smaller than the others with no view so do take this into consideration if booking as a group of friends.

The villa is equipped with 2 safes, hairdryers, wifi and telephone for local outgoing calls only. The villa also offers laundry facilities for everyday use. Maid service is once midweek and she will change all linens and towels as well as clean generally.

Beautiful location and villa

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week. We had never been to the bvi so this was an adventure! Sam was wonderful responding to my hundreds of questions. We were met at the ferry dock with our jeep rental ( which sam also helped arrange) and we were guided to the house from there. It was only the two of us but this house would have easily accommodated two other couples. We could walk to the beach, take a dip in the plunge pool to cool off, cook meals if we wanted or just relax. Beautiful views, wifi, and clean villa. It took us a little exploring to figure out where everything was on the island it was an adventure! We had a wonderful anniversary vacation!

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at the Van Dyke House for 6 nights and could not have been more pleased. The views from the front of the house toward Jost Van Dyke and to Long Bay were stunning! From this perfect spot at the West End, it's an easy drive to several of the local roadside restaurants (D"Coalpot was our favorite) as well as all of the necessities (restaurants, provisions, shopping) at the local Soper's Hole Marina. Even the trip to Road Town is an easy 25 minute drive. If you rent a vehicle, make sure it is a 4 wheel drive. The driveway is a little steep but certainly worth it to get to this beautiful hillside perch! Sam with Villas of Tortola could not have been more helpful. We cannot wait until our next trip!

Wonderful Spot !!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Van Dyke House June 4-11, 2016 for our 10 Year Anniversary and had a wonderful stay. The view from the house is fantastic ! I have nothing but great things to say about the Van Dyke House. AC in Bedrooms and Dining areas worked well. Pool was fantastic ! The house was close to everything and very private. We explored Long Bay, Smugglers Cove, Brewers Bay, Cane Garden Bay, and Rogues Bay on Tortola. Rogue's Bay was challenging to get to but well worth the effort ! Saw Lobster and eels at Brewers Bay. I highly recommend Brewers Bay and Rogue's Bay for those who are looking for a more private beach. We also took a day sail with Captain Luke on the Lion Heart Sail Cat (one of the Aristocat boats out of Road Town). I would highly recommend this trip ! We sailed to Salt, Cooper and Peter Islands. Snorkeled and dove on the wreck of the Rhone and saw everything... Barracuda, Tarpon, Turtles, Sting Rays and more ! We ate at most of the local restaurants. Our favorites were Sebastian's at Long Bay (Fish, Lobster and Rum were fantastic) , Bananakeet, Myett's at Cane Garden Bay. We also took day trips to Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke. We got to meet Foxy and enjoyed his Rum drinks and ended up at The Soggy Dollar Bar for some fun in the sun and Pain Killers. The trip could not have been any better ! We just didn't want to leave. Sam and Sharlene were very helpful with the house questions and jeep rental. I recommend a 4WD Vehicle if you plan to really explore Tortola ! We can't wait until we return !

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at Van Dyke House for a week - we'd definitely recommend renting a car to explore other parts of the island, but the proximity to the beach from this property is a huge plus. It was great to be able to walk across the street with our cooler and beach chairs for a beautiful morning at long bay. We loved that we were so close to Smuggler's Cove as well (another favorite spot)! Having AC in the bedrooms was great and the pool was nice for quick afternoon dips. The views from the pool and the main deck were amazing. If we weren't at the beach, we were all gathered on the deck, listening to the waves and enjoying the views. I would recommend this house to anyone - it was perfect for our group.

Beautiful View!!!

  • 5 of 5

Van Dyke House was an excellent place to make our home away from home! We are a family of 4 with 2 young girls. The Kitchen was awesome to prepare meals in. Wifi work enough to keep in touch with family and friends. The master bedroom was incredible. The waves were so loud that I wondered if I would be able to sleep. This is not a complaint, you are right on top of a beautiful beach with crashing waves! If you love the ocean, it is spectacular. It was nice to have AC in the 2nd bedroom for our children. There was not much wind during our stay, so they sleep comfortably in a cool quiet bedroom. We lost power a few different time, but the house was ready for it, and it didn't last long. Power outages happen often on many islands. Sam and her team were very attentive our whole stay. I definitely recommend this house for an amazing vacation in Tortola!
