Guestbook comments from the owner

Jen and family You are always welcome back to Villa ShangriLa. We were very lucky to have you here. Next time you come, we need to make mojitos together. The herbs are growing like crazy and I don´t know what to do with so much mint :-) Jen , Chris and family are people who can be welcome in any Villa rental. They are very respectful and clean with the place and they are wonderful people too. Hugs and all our best

Great Tortola Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Shangrila was the perfect home base for our vacation. The location is very central to everything! You are at a high point of the island and can easily get to restaurants, towns, beaches or island hopping ferries in no time. The house itself is perfect. The three comfy bedrooms and two bathrooms worked well for our family, and the fully outfitted kitchen is great, too. Although, we mostly took the easy way out and chose to try all of the local restaurants. The outdoor space was amazing with a beautiful view of the harbor in Roadtown. Marlo is a wonderful host. She's available for anything you need while visiting. We would stay here again and recommend it to friends in a heartbeat!

See that picture of the Hot tub on the deck.........yeah well, wine every evening under the stars with a view of water and lights in the distance. Did I mention the Hot every morning with the "view". The home is modern and pleasing to the eye and the master bedroom bed was lights out, literally head hits pillow and good night. Marlo was wonderful and very respectful of our privacy. This was our down time before we spent a week sailing with three other couples. We wished we had booked the home for another 3 days after the sail. Well, I hope you get the idea we loved it and would definitely go back and stay longer.

Great Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month at the Villa and wished we could call it "home". For one week 5 adults were staying there while the rest of the time there were 2 adults. The Villa easily accommodated 5 adults. We cooked many meals and found the kitchen to be well stocked. What attracted us to the Villa was the large deck, the location and the view; all of which lived up to expectations. The location was fantastic. Even during rush hour it took less than 10 minutes to drive to Road Town or to Brewers Bay beach, which was one of our favourites. Ridge road runs right beside the property and generally the road is not busy. However during rush hour you will hear traffic first thing in the morning and in the evening. However the roosters are more likely to wake you up! Anytime something needed attention, Marlo was on it immediately and the Villa was cleaned weekly. Marlo is very good at thinking of the little things that make your stay more comfortable. A local cell phone is provided; filtered water is provided and replenished as needed; the grounds are beautiful and kept that way during your stay; and Marlo is willing to help you plan your adventures and has many great contacts on the island. The service from Marlo and her staff was excellent. Thanks Marlo for looking after us for the month!

Owner's Response: Dave and Laurie , you both are wonderful guest too. Always respectful with the house rules. You left the place clean and perfect conditions. My son Roger (20 month old) feels Laurie could be her best friend because she played with him for a while. I will highly recommend anyone to host you and I will be so happy to have you back. It was my pleasure. Marlo

Amazing property with an incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed 12 incredible nights over the New Year and loved every day. Marlo was great when showing us around the property and kept us in the loop if there was maintenance needed or what day/time the cleaning service was to show up.

The house is in an incredible location with easy access to all parts of the island. You’re only 10 minutes from many beaches which was a huge plus for us. The view is even better than in the pictures and the hot tub was truly one of our favorite parts of the property. Marlo was also very considerate of our privacy while in the house which really did make it feel like our own private escape while we were there. I’d highly suggest staying here!

  • 5 of 5

a wonderful holiday and vacation home. Marlo and Thor are wonderful host and are there for you for anything. The home is perfectly appointed and has a beautiful exotic feel to it. My kids did their workouts outside in a wonderfully landscaped area reminiscent of tropical paradise. I recommend this home to anyone
