PRIVATE POOL, THE BEST BEACH & YOUR OWN KAYAKS!
We came to Tortola for a vacation from the cold weather and it didn't take long to love the island. It's hard to resist, the British Virgin Islands are truly beautiful. The Villa was featured on an episode of House Hunters International in 2015 (Season 85 Episode 11 "Part-Time in Paradise"). Unfortunately, we can't be here all the time, so we decided to share it with others.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Owner chose East End
We first started our search for a property on Tortola in the North Shore area but soon realized that the area surrounding Lamberts / Josiah's / and Little Bay was better suited for us. There are no crowds here. Cruise Ship guests are transported to the other side of the island. The beaches here are the best that you will find in the Caribbean. It's close enough to shopping and restaurants for convenience yet far enough away from the crowds for peace and quiet and If your like us and want check out the party beaches occasionally, the other side of the island is only a short drive.
What makes this Villa unique
Beach toys! We supply you with everything you need for a good time at the beach. Kayaks, surfboard, noodles, beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella, snorkeling equipment and we even include a cooler and cozies to keep your brews cold at the beach!

Loved everything about this villa. The view, pool and beach were fantastic. We also loved the sun sail over the lounge chairs which provided much needed shade by the pool. The inside was very clean and the beds super comfortable. Already booked our next trip and we can't wait to return!
Very nice. Great view and amenities
Roomy bedrooms & comfortable beds, loved our dining area, pool area. Took advantage of boogie boards and beach chairs. Plenty of towels & linens. The manager & wife responded quickly to questions and accommodate our needs. Will return.
Fantastic time at Gryphon's Lair
Spent several days here and enjoyed every single moment. The home is beautiful, as is the view. Very clean, modern and comfortable. Guy couldn't have been more helpful before and during our stay, helping us to navigate around the island. Mr. Kat was a sweet a welcoming friend who we enjoyed spending time with! I highly recommend this villa for those looking for a relaxing and peaceful retreat in Tortola BVI.
Beautiful and clean villa within walking distance to the beach.
Could not speak more highly of Guy (owner) or this property. If you are looking at staying here, book it! The property is clean, beautiful views, within walking distance to a beach, and there are fruit and lime trees on the property (yummy). Guy was responsive to all questions both before our arrival and during our stay. We will definitely stay here again next time we visit the BVI and I encourage you to do the same. You will not be disappointed!
Another wonderful stay
This was our second stay at Gryphon's Lair. We came with our two adult children, and had a marvellous time. The only trace of hurricane damage around the villa that we could see was the defoliation of some of the palm trees., but the views are still amazing. The villa suits our needs perfectly, with enough communal space indoors and out, but also separate sleeping quarters and bathrooms for three couples (or mom, dad and two kids). The villa is very well equipped and has fast wifi, which we really appreciated. Guy, the host, is very responsive to any and all inquiries. I'm sure we will be back.
Amazing View - Great Veranda!
Just returned from two weeks at Gryphon's Lair. We had an amazing time. The best part of the villa was the open air veranda with its beautiful view of the ocean and Guana Island. We ate all of our meals there and in the evenings just enjoyed sitting outside conversing about our day on the island. The bedrooms were large and the beds were comfortable. Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. We would highly recommend Gryphon's Lair for your next stay on Tortola.
