Its only a two minute walk to beautiful Long Bay with it's mile long white sandy beach lined with swaying palms and sea grape trees. Long bay is nestled between Apple Bay, a great place for surfers when the swell is up, and Smugglers Cove, a beautiful protected bay with fabulous snorkelling. Long Bay over looks the lovely islands of Jost Van Dyke, Little Jost, Sandy Cay and Green Cay. It's only a few minutes by car to West End ferry dock and Soper's Hole with it's colourful grocery store, shops and restaurants over looking the many beautiful sailboats.

This property was formally know as Long Bay Beach Resort.
We stayed at the Mermaid Suite from August 17-20 and found it to be clean, comfortable, and well-equipped. The apartment is a 5 minute walk from Long Bay Beach, which was gorgeous and quiet. It was also a 10 minute drive to Smuggler's Cove, which was great for snorkeling. There are also plenty of restaurants to go to nearby. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, a car is necessary for this location. There are tvs but no cable at the apartment, but the owner provides a nice DVD collection if you're interested (we watched Planet Earth). The wifi was reliable and worked well, but note that there were a couple of short blackouts (each lasting approximately a couple of hours) that occurred throughout our stay.
The owner, Dan, was very responsive and friendly throughout the booking process and answered all of our questions regarding how to get to the apartment and recommendations for renting a vehicle. His proxy in Tortola, Sonia, was very helpful once we got on the island and met us with the keys.
Overall, we loved our stay at the Mermaid Suite and would rent this property from Dan again!
We enjoyed our stay at the Mermaid Suite. It was very quiet. The apartment is well equipped. Sonia is helpful. Having wifi that works well is wonderful. We enjoyed both Long Bay and Smuggler's beaches close by. And, we made several trips to Soper's Hole for lunch and for sailing excursions.
The Mermaid Suite is located in one of the best places on the island. The Long Bay resort is well-manicured and pretty private. It is located on one of the best beaches in Tortola and very near to Smuggler's Cove. The villa was clean, spacious, & well-equipped with dishes & cookware, towels & linens. We prepared most of our meals in the villa and had everything we needed. Sonia, the host from Long Bay, was very accommodating and met us upon our arrival, and checked on us during our stay. Bronwyn, the owner was great to work with as well. We will definitely return to the Mermaid Suite.
This is a lovely apartment that comfortably fit four, at least. Beautiful balcony, reasonably well equipped kitchen, two bathrooms. But it is in the middle of an abandoned resort, overlooking an empty swimming pool, so it can feel a little spooky. But it is a five minute walk from an amazing beach, and everyone seems friendly. No wifi within reach, and the only wifi is at the bar at the beach (fine and friendly). The host provided a cell phone but it wasn't functional. Bring mosquito repellent, there are lots.
We just got back from a week at this Long Bay Beach apartment. The location is fabulous. Things can get crazy in Cane Garden Bay and Road Town in Dec/Jan, but Long Bay Beach was out of the fray and gorgeous. It’s a 5-minute walk to Long Bay Beach and a 20-minute walk to Smugglers Cove Beach, which is one of the best beaches on the island. It is a short and fairly easy drive to Soper’s Hole for restaurants and supplies. (You do need a car for this location). The description given is accurate. There was enough space for our family of 4. Keep in mind that there is no internet, laundry or cable (there is a TV with a DVD so bring some movies). The kitchen has minimal supplies. Sonia (local manager) was very helpful; communication with the owners less so. We got few instructions before going there, and I had to email/call several times to get questions answered. So while not fancy, the price is good and it did meet our needs.
