Words will not fully express The Sterling House on Tortola, BVA. The location was the most serene, stunningly beautiful, quiet place I have experienced, and the home; spectacular! I hope to make this a yearly event with wonderful friends. Great island for running, walking, or cycling. And the views from every room in the house included light, water, and ever changing skies. Thank you for offering a lovingly cared for home to guests.
Stunning! Tortola is paradise
The most relaxing vacation I have ever been on. The house and views are STUNNING! This was my first visit to Tortola and I could not get over how safe the entire island is compared to other islands that I have visited. My most enjoyable activity was to watch the sunset from the pool or verandas (with drinks of course!). Jeanie and Greta were so accommodating. I have been home a day and already miss it! Donna's attention to detail and the immaculate condition of the house was appreciated. I loved the artwork throughout the house. I will see you next year!
Best accomodation on Tortola!
Best location in Tortola, by far! Literally steps to the white sand, mile long beach. I think I have 50 pictures of the view from every angle out of the villa b/c it is so perfect & gorgeous - best sunset views ever as well!
Easy (well, comparatively speaking for Tortola ;) to get to & from most anywhere. Just a 5-10 minute drive to Smuggler's Cove, walkable to Tropical Fusion &Long Bay Rest. (but skip the latter), 2 min drive to Sebastian's, Boomba Shack, Sugar Mill & D'Coal Pot. Owner Donna is gracious & helpful with a slew of recommendations. Jeannie & other staff were more than accomodating & very friendly. We tried to be pretty low key & not request much, but it was obvious that all would have done whatever it took to make our stay more comfortable! I highly recommend ordering a handful of groceries prior to arrival - they were all chilled & put away before we arrived. The plunge pool, though small is a perfect compliment to playing in the hot sun & wavy ocean - it is a great (convenient!) way to cool off & relax - my daughter's favorite place to read was at its edge. The beds & linens were very comfortable, the room air conditioners were freezing cold (in a good way) when you want them, though there is a great breeze throughout most times of day, The kitchen was ample for most needs. The bedrooms are very comparable in size & amenities though one has the plunge pool entrance attached to its bath. One morning, we awoke to the view of a gorgeous rainbow over the water from our pillows - it was amazing! We were supplied with as many clean beach towels as needed, there are beach chairs for use - enough to leave some in car for exploring & some in storage for use at house as well as sand toys, pool noodles & small coolers for beach excursions. Wifi worked well & was pretty consistent. The property has a generator, so we didn't even realize that the entire area was without power one evening until we walked into a restaurant for dinner! The beach was terrific - not as calm as Smuggler's, but def as clear w/alot of shallow spots for a ways out. The little rocky area next to house was fun for my daughter to explore the tide pools, etc. w/water shoes. Best pelican watching from the deck & great flat beach to walk/run on to the end. We will certainly be back & though we've stayed in some fantastic hotels and other beachside rental properties, The Sterling House most definitely earns a rank right up at the very top - it was just what we were looking for!
Magnificent Family Vacay!!
My husband and 3 daughters spent a fabulous 7 days in Sterling House. Words cannot describe our first sight of the house and our accomodations! Pictures do not do the view justice!!! We were in awe with the balcony views with the Caribbean breezes. Donna, the owner, greeted us and gave us thorough instructions for the villa and island activities. She could always be reached for any questions or advice we needed. The villa is well equipped with everything you need including a huge selection of beach chairs. The beach is just steps away from the backdoor(don't worry if you forget something-takes about a minute to go back for it). We enjoyed the 2 restaurants that are minutes from the villa(especially Tropical Fusion). Eric, the taxi driver brought us anywhere we wanted to go and also reccommended restaurants and bars etc... We took a water taxi to Jost Van Dyke for entire day, we knew we would be late coming back so Eric arranged a boat for us. He also set us up with a day trip with Greg on a 33 foot motor boat. We snorkeled at Virgin Gorda and ate at Willie T's. We then snorkeled at the caves on Norman Island. I highly reccommend Sterling House and my family feels very lucky to have enjoyed Donna's home and gracious hospitality!
Slice of heaven
We spent a week at Sterling House with friends. Wonderful property, wonderful location. The property is the envy of everyone who visits Long Bay beach. The housekeeper (Jeannie) is amazing. I personally believe it is the best property on the island!
Sterling House on Tortola
When you first arrive at Sterling House on Tortola, you can only be awed by the majesty of the house and the panorama of the views. Three stories of beautifully maintained white concrete with a red roof and spiraling tower, reminiscent of an ancient monastery, are at the water's edge. Waves roll by your doorstep to a white sandy beach framed by towering palms and idyllic houses. Looking out over the rolling azure ocean, you can see mountainous islands covered with tree and bush foliage. At night, the sounds of rolling waves breaking on the shore provide a primordial background, which lulls you to sleep. If a picture of serenity could be painted, this would be it.
While nature is in abundance, Sterling House is an oasis of civilization. White linen sheets, soft pillows, Mediterranean furniture and travertine marble floors provide the setting of a home away from home.
Jeanie, the housekeeper, keeps an impeccably clean house and is there to clean daily as you sit on the veranda, eat and drink while mesmerized by nature. Pantheist or not, you can't help but believe that the divinity is all around you.
And of course, the Hostess Donna, charming, intelligent and wordly is accommodating to the extreme as she tries to ensure that your stay is most memorable. Donna, knowledgeable in the highlights of Tortola, will provide island hospitality to ensure your needs are met. And she is also quite an artist of the beauty of Tortola. Donna exhibits her inner most feelings on her canvases scattered about the Villa.
So, for a most memorable vacation, which binds island hospitality with nature's magnificience within an oasis of civilization, this is it.
