Murray House is a spacious and comfortable villa that is conveniently located in Long Bay, West End. The views are beautiful of course, and all rooms except the bathrooms, have ocean views. All rooms are fully screened and the bedrooms are air-conditioned. The newly decorated accommodations are housed in 3 pavilions surrounding the fantastic pool deck and access to the beach below is just a 4 or 5 minute walk… a mile of white sand beach! This villa is particularly suited for guests who have difficulty getting around as the Master Suite is on the ground floor which has no steps at all.

Newly decorated bedrooms (summer 2015) are furnished with hand-made Balinese teak furniture.

From the driveway (which comfortably parks 2 cars), you enter the Great Room with it’s large and comfortably cushioned elephant bamboo furniture for at least 8 guests. Across the room 3 sets of large glass doors open to reveal a large covered porch and ocean views of Jost Van Dyke , Sandy Cay and Green Cay. Large powerful fans silently cool the room with the ocean breezes which flow through the 3 walls of double doors and the 1 wall of windows. There is a 32” flatscreen TV with DVD player and DirectTV for your entertainment. The room is fully screened. The shady porch area is an ideal spot for reading quietly in the shade with 2 large chairs and ottomans and it also has a secondary dining table and chairs.

This porch leads around to the large pool deck which is partially covered, offering guests space in the sun or shade on the 4 sun-loungers and 2 upright chairs.

Also leading onto the pool deck is the large kitchen, which offers all the usual conveniences. The laundry facilities are for your use and are housed just off the kitchen as is a 1/2 bathroom and separate access to the driveway. The built-in gas grill is under the covered porch leading from the kitchen to the covered dining area with seating for 8.

As previously mentioned, the Master Suite is on the ground floor, next to the pool. It has a king size Balinese teak four-poster bed and a small private porch with chairs and ottoman for 2. The Master Suite also has a private sunning area with 2 sun loungers. There is a 32” flatscreen TV with DirectTV and a large bathroom with walk-in shower and twin vanity. Fully screened and with AC also.

Winding steps from the pool deck lead up to the 2nd and 3rd suites which share a large deck overlooking the pool and ocean beyond. The 2nd suite has a king size bed, AC, 27” flat screen TV with DirectTV and the bathroom has a private outdoor stone-wall shower.

The 3rd suite has 2 twin beds that were hand built and designed to push together to make a comfortable king , a 27” flat screen TV with Direct TV and bathroom with shower.

Murray House is a great choice for anyone looking for the quiet of Belmont and West End but the proximity to the beach and restaurants that Long Bay offers.

The house is equipped with a phone for outgoing local calls as well as incoming overseas calls, as well as Wifi.

A perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Murray House is wonderful! Sam and Sharlene were very helpful and easy to work with. Long Bay is the prime location if you are staying on this island. You are facing east, so no sunset, but oh what a view! A car is a ready for an adventure. Bring good walking shoes if you want to walk to the beach. It's not far but you are on a hill. Our favorite beach was Smugglers Cove. There is a tiny bar if you need a refreshment. FYI, beach chairs, coolers and beach towels are provided at the house.

Best sunset with sea and mountain views, Bananakeet Cafe!

Repeat restaurant..,D'Coal Pot.

We ate there twice and even had a takeout order. Try their Chicken Roti, you won't be disappointed.

We dined at the Sugar Mill. A beautiful place and the food was great but it was lacking in service. We booked an excursion with Aristocrat and had a great time. We snorkel around Norman island, saw sea turtles, stingrays and an variety of sea life. Great memories were had by all. Oh...there are roosters.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Murray House for a week in October, was in Tortola for a wedding. The house was spectacular, the views gorgeous. Wonderful spaced out bedrooms, modern kitchen and so many great outdoor areas. Also, A/C in all 3 bedrooms worked great. I will definitely stay at the Murray House again, next time I'm in Tortola. Sam and her team were very helpful with all details from car rental, groceries to a chef for a cocktail party we had. Truly a fabulous experience

Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the Murray House for two weeks in January of this year. We loved everything about this house! Amazing outdoor dining room and patio. We loved how it was one house, but all of the rooms were separated enough for privacy. Outdoor shower in two rooms upstairs was amazing! It was also a perfect location on the island. Very close to beaches and restaurants. Sam was very helpful through the entire transaction. We will definitely be renting this house again!

Perfect for families or groups of friends......Gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 recently spent 8 terrific days in The Murray House on Tortola. Murray is in the West End and overlooks the gorgeous Long Bay beach. There is a huge family room where we would play games and relax in front of the TV in the evening. A very well appointed kitchen which we appreciated, complete with dishwasher and washer/dryer set. The lay out is great for groups and allows everyone to have privacy as well. There are multiple levels which allowed for multiple balconies and views. A large dining table and grill were great for us all to dine together right by the pool. And chairs and other tables around the property were nice to have available as well. Every room is screened so you can have the fans on with a nice tropical breeze and still feel like you are out of doors. The bedrooms were all air conditioned so sleeping was comfortable. Sam and Sharlene were fantastically helpful before and during our stay. They answered tons of questions and Sharlene met us at the ferry dock and escorted us to The Murray House. It really was the perfect place for us for a wonderful vacation to the BVI'S. The first of many I hope!

Great villa!

  • 4 of 5

We rented the Murray House for the second time and it was wonderful again! The owners have recently screened the whole property which makes it easier to enjoy the tropical living.

We love the great room when it's raining and of course the pool and nearby Long Bay beach are wonderful . Would recommend this propert for family's or just 2 people.

Fantastic Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is without a doubt one of the best vacations we have had in a long time. Tortola and the surrounding islands are beautiful and Tortola makes for a great hub to venture out to places like Jost van Dyke and the Baths at Virgin Gorda. The Murray House fit all of our needs. We had six people (three couples) and there was plenty of room to relax, socialize, or to find your own space at the house. The house was well equipped and had a spectacular view. The location at the West End was the best as it was near Smuggler's Cove and the West End ferry terminal. Sam and Sharlene with Villas of Tortola were very helpful providing transportation from the West End ferry terminal to the house and also making sure that the items we ordered from grocery store and Caribbean Cellars were at the house when we arrived. They were a pleasure to deal with from the start of our trip until the end. We hope to return to Tortola and the Murray House!
