About Lisa & Kezzia Gray

Lisa moved to the British Virgin Islands in 1991 and shortly after moved into the Allamanda Apartment with her husband. Six years and two children later they moved into an apartment right next door. Her daughter Kezzia, now 24, manages the rentals for the Allamanda Apartment. She has a handful of years experience working on Necker Island (a private island in the British Virgin Islands) and therefor will be working towards ensuring you have a comfortable & flawless stay at the Allamanda Apartment.

                                                              Loved it.

                                                              Pamela G.

                                                              It was just as described. Cozy little apt with a little deck overlooking the water. Deck could use a little shoring up, but, we knew what to expect per reviews. Better to have a car when there, as it's not too easy to flag a cab. We would stay there again. Thank you Lisa.

                                                              Great location within Road Town BVI.

                                                              This small but comfortable condo is conveniently located to downtown Road Town and ferry. Great for couples or families with small children.

                                                              We had a great time in Tortola.

                                                              Lisa and Kezzia did a great job of taking care of us. The apt was comfortable for our family. You do need a car if staying here.

                                                              A great place to stay on the edge of Road Town.

                                                              A very cute condo on the edge of Road Town.

                                                              Well equipped with everything you need and very accomodating.

                                                              Close enough to town to walk to the restaurants and bars.

                                                              Would definitelu consider staying here again.

                                                              Nice location but needs some attention to detail

                                                              Erin H.

                                                              Overall the place provided what we needed but I've listed out both the good and bad. I think if broken items weren't placed out for use I would have given a better rating. This was also the most expensive 3 nights that we paid for a place towards the end of a 9 night vacation around Tortolla. For what we got, it was not worth what we paid.

                                                              Good:

                                                              Location is within walking distance of food and of the marina. We were looking to charter a sail so this was perfect.

                                                              The view of harbor was great

                                                              The number of fans in the place was great

                                                              Plenty of space to spread out and relax

                                                              Bad:

                                                              The gas burners on the stove didn't seem to work at first but the owner quickly responded and took a look. We had 2 to cook with which was fine.

                                                              The blender was broken and the lid shattered when we tried to use it (old plastic)

                                                              The kitchen drawer fell off when we opened it.

                                                              The speakers did not work for the stereo in the living room

                                                              There was used soap left in the shower (prior guest?)

                                                              The mattress seemed old and hard

                                                              The deck near the back door is old and coming apart, step carefully!

                                                              Private and perfect for our purposes

                                                              Allemanda is a great set-up for a stay in Road Town. Spacious interior with decent wifi, shower, bed, and full kitchen. The deck outside is pleasant and the harbor is pretty. Very relaxing. Beautiful breezes, didn't need AC, but I imagine during the summer it could be stuffy. Because the interior is exposed to the outside elements, open windows, appliances and furniture are a little funky but we felt comfortable and safe. Easy to walk into town. Close to provisions. Lisa was a terrific host. Everything was very nice. Would stay there again. Note that if you're looking for a luxury apartment , this is not it. Traditional island style accommodations are offered and it was perfect for us.
