About Susanna

My name is Susanna. I am a native of Tennessee and have been living in the British Virgin Islands for more than 15 years. I co-host with my husband who was born and raised right here on Tortola. The BVI is an incredibly beautiful place and we take pride and pleasure in welcoming guests to our little corner of the world.

My ‘real job’ is in the area of marketing and PR and I am also the author of Moon Virgin Islands, a travel guidebook to the US and British Virgin Islands. I don’t pretend to know it all, but I do know a fair bit about these amazing islands and I am happy to share my knowledge with guests who would like a little help planning their itinerary.

When we are not hosting or taking care of the property, you can find us pursuing some pretty simple pastimes: cooking and eating, reading or watching good TV, listening to music or hanging out with friends, competing for the affections of our cats, or trying our best not to kill the plants in our garden. It’s a pretty good life, and we are grateful for it.

Most guests will hardly be aware that we live downstairs, in the level below our rental property. Upstairs and downstairs have completely private parking and entrance areas, and we make a point to stay out of our guests' way -- unless of course you need something.

Susanna purchased this villa in 2015

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your magnificent retreat with us. Your gracious and thoughtful attention to all our needs, present and anticipated, were greatly appreciated. The once in a lifetime views were beautifully complimented by your elegant but comfortable furnishings. We hope to visit again.

Outstanding trip - Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

First, Susanna and Amarro are just amazing. The communications and information they provide really literally covers everything.

The house is just fantastic. The pictures of the views really don't do it justice.

The house is up in the mountains, and we had concern of the drive up. It's daunting the first time, but after you do it a few times it's really not bad at all.

It was a great trip and will def check with them first when we plan our next trip back.

Even Nicer than You'd Expect

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited Casa Flamboyant for a week in April 2017 (but we could have easily been joined by a couple other couples given the nice size of the home.) The views from the living room and deck were magnificent and the home itself was beautiful. I found the house to be even nicer than I expected from the pictures. Great location –about 5-10 from soppers hole and easy access to Smugglers Cove and Road Town. The home is very clean and Sussanna and her husband are wonderful hosts -they’ve thought of everything you’ll need. I would definitely return to this home!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Casa Flamboyant (CF) and were repeatedly impressed by the accommodations and the endless views. We have visited Tortola many times and were looking for a new place to stay. We were so happy with our choice of CF…it had everything we needed and more. CF has an awesome location on the West End and is close to our favorite beaches and restaurants.

The huge open concept kitchen, dining and living area had spectacular views wherever you looked. The kitchen was well stocked and included many of the basics you would have in your own home (foil, plastic wrap, paper towels, seasonings, condiments, etc.). There was a sound system that worked with our iPhone. The bedrooms were private with large closets and dressers. Nice bathrooms with fluffy towels and basic toiletries. It was also wonderful to have a laundry room with a washer and dryer (laundry soap provided)! It was also nice to have use of the beach chairs.

As mentioned by others, the views from the two decks were amazing and the ability to open up windows in every room to catch the cool breezes was very refreshing. Even on a rainy day, we did not feel ‘closed in’ as the open space and big windows gave us plenty of room to relax and enjoy the scenery.

Susanna is an awesome host – she made the trip so easy for us both before and during our stay. The best thing we did was to let her do our provisioning. We had specific dietary needs (non-dairy, no eggs, etc.) and Susanna found basically everything on our grocery list. She visited 4 stores that she knew would most likely have what we needed and exercised great judgment when she needed to improvise. This saved us a day of our trip by not having to grocery shop!

We highly recommend staying at Casa Flamboyant!

Great stay at Villa Casa Flamboyant

  • 5 of 5

Wanted to say thank you to Susanna for a great stay in Tortola! Clean open concept Villa, Private Setting, and amazing views - what a beautiful property. Susanna was very accommodating with allowing us to arrive early and getting settled in. The place was exactly what we hoped for and made a terrific home base for us to visit the beautiful beaches and other islands as suggested by Susanna. Morning coffee on the patio with the panoramic views of the ocean was incredible. Susanna thought of everything from coffee and creamer to a cell phone that we could use for local calls. This is my new favorite vacation destination and hope to be back again soon!

Owner's Response: Hi Troy It was a pleasure having you and your family and we are happy to hear you enjoyed your time at our 'casa'. I completely agree about morning coffee while taking in the view: you just can't get much better than that. Best wishes, Susanna

Spectacular views & wonderful villa.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable villa. The owners have the house set up so you don't really need to leave...and with the wonderful views, you won't want to.

It's an easy ride to many of our favorite spots on the West End, Apple & Carrot Bay.

Thanks for everything...we'll be back sometime!
