About Judy Haycraft

Long term residents of the BVI and enthusiasts of the Sea, the owners discovered the Beach House earlier this year when exploring the surrounding shore line. Chris was born and raised in the BVI and when he is not directing ships he is sailing them...Judy moved to the BVI in 2000 and is a keen swimmer and paddle boarder. Their 2 young sons are avid sailors and watersports enthusiasts and can be seen paddleboarding, sailing or wake boarding in the Bay.

Judy Haycraft purchased this house in 2014

Why Judy Haycraft chose British Virgin Islands

Beauty and tranquility, the ability to live by the water in comfort, lie in the hammock in the lush garden, take an early morning dip, snorkel the reef that is steps from the property, take a hike to nearby attractions, or just take in the view...

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with our property that has the rare added attraction of being next to the water and having a beautiful flat garden that our children could play in and with plenty of space to relax and dine al fresco. The Beach is not easily accessible to the public so it is often deserted. The neighbourhood is friendly and peaceful whilst the location is still close to Road Town and several good quality shops and restaurants.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat the location of this house. It's well worth the drive over the mountain to have a beach and bay all to yourself. The reef out front is great for snorkeling, and the beach is perfect. There was a resident school of bait fish on the reef during our week. It was fun to watch the pelicans and other birds dive bombing for their dinner. There's also nice scuba diving in the bay. We rented a small boat for several days to explore the area islands and scuba dive, but rough seas in the Drake Channel prevented us from getting out most days. Not to worry. We stayed home and used the house provided kayaks to access the Brewers East dive site, as well as to dive the reef directly across the bay. This second site is not noted in the dive guides, but is located directly across from the house (and slightly south), off of the rocky beach. About 30 yards from shore you'l find a nice shallow reef. You can follow the reef north for several hundred yards in approx 35 feet of water. We did not attempt Brewers Bay Pinnacles due to sea conditions.

The house is well equipped with all that you'll need for your stay. The wifi is some of the best I've experienced in the Caribbean. The grill was in tip top shape, and there was plenty of propane. Road Town is only a 10 minute drive away, so trips for provisions and scuba tanks were easy. 4WD or AWD is definitely recommended for the driveway to the house. If venturing out at night to the Cane Garden Bay Area, I highly recommend taking the longer route via Ridge Road. The shorter route that passes by Nicole's Beach Bar might be a little stressful, especially if it's raining.

There may be more luxurious homes on the island. There may be homes with further reaching views. But for peace/tranquility, easy beach/water access and unobstructed views you can't beat Brewers Bay Beach House!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very detailed review. We are so glad you had a great trip. We have never "sold" the diving opportunities of Brewers Bay , thank you for bringing this to attention. We look forward to having you back one day.

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at Brewers Bay Beach House! We arrived just after some of the worst flooding the island has ever seen, which made some of the roads difficult to traverse, but it wasn't too bad. We mostly enjoyed staying at the house swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle boarding in the bay right in front of the house and saw nary a person there all week.

Even with the heavy rains the week before, the water in the bay was perfect, just like the photos.

We will definitely come back to this house! Thanks Chris & Judy, and Mobbsie

Great quiet beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Brewer's Bay beach house.

We picked this house instead of a house with a view from the mountain because of the amenities that came with it. (Kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling in your backyard, beach walks, etc) It's on a quiet bay which we loved! We adventured out everyday on the island to explore. We would love coming home at night and opening the doors to the ocean waves. Great stay and we would love to come back!

Perfect beach house stay

  • 5 of 5

The optimum in simple living in paradise. What a location and a beautiful house. Its not for people who like 5 star hotel living, with simple kitchen, bathroom and living spaces. But this is not a criticism - the house was perfect. Closest to being on a boat while being on land! Thank you Judy and Chris for the best family holiday possible. Cheers Steve

For us it doesn't get much better .

  • 5 of 5

Hi Judy

We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay .

For us it was a real get away and ticked everything we were looking for .

If someone is looking for " flashy " or " happening " then Brewers Bay is not for them .

However , if someone likes the photos as advertised and if they like what they see they will not be disappointed .

The welcome was casual and friendly and the house had everything you needed .

Everyone has there own take on five star , for us it couldn't get much better .

Thank you

Regards

Richard and Beverley Austin

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home for 9 nights after 10 days of sailing and it was truly amazing. The house was beautiful and the yard was very private, filled with lots of vegetation and flowers. I cannot say enough about the views from the house. We opened the doors on the first floor living area and in the second floor master bedroom which were virtually the entire walls and it felt like we were back on the boat....complete views of the bay and Jost Van Dyke.

We grilled out everyday and dined in the yard. The beach is secluded and there were days when we didn't see a soul. Snorkeling was great and there was a constant show from the pelicans and sea birds in the bay.

This is the place to go if you want complete relaxation, a gorgeous setting and relative privacy. Both the owner and the caretaker are wonderful to work with and led to a perfect vacation. We will be back!
