About Craig Corser
I live in Alberta, Canada. I am involved in secondary wood manufacturing, elk farming and organic food production. My wife Kelly and I, have been married for 32 years. We have three adult children and three grandchildren. We all love Tortola and Cane Garden Bay.
Craig Corser purchased this Cottage in 1979
Why Craig Corser chose Tortola
This property was originally purchased and developed by an uncle and eleven other 'cockeyed optimists' from Alberta, Canada, in 1979. My father bought out eight of these twelve in 1990 and upgraded the property. I got involved soon after and have been managing the property for about 20 years. We have continuously improved the property, including a full renovation in 2013.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are located at the quiet end of Cane Garden Bay, literally steps from the beach and a short level walk to everything you need. Our property is 1.75 acres and is unique in that we have a large, lush private yard, shaded by coconut palms and almond trees. There are hammocks to relax in and high speed wireless for your convenience. There is a tiny, family run bar and general store right next door. Rental cars are available locally. We did a full renovation of the property in October of 2013. We added a 14' x 18' gazebo to the yard. The gazebo houses a charcoal grill and tables. With four rental units (see VRBO Listing #'s 357970, 914873 and 914875 for details on the other three units) and a large private yard, we are a great place for family vacations, weddings and business meetings.

The Cane Garden Bay cottages (we were in #2) were perfect for our trip into Tortola. We were there for 5 days and loved the location as well as the cottages themselves. Convenient to the beach, grocery and restaurants as well as very comfortable for relaxing at the end of a busy day. Sharlene was incredibly helpful and made check in/check out effortless. We had a taxi driver (Robinson) that we coordinated trips/times all week and he made everything super easy and reliable. We left his cell # in the info book in the cottage. The open, airy and updated feel of the cottages contributed to the great vibe of Cane Garden Bay for us. We had an outstanding trip and look forward to hopefully being back for a few days next summer.
Thank you for your kind words April! The description of your experience with Cane Garden Bay and The Cottages, is eloquent. It is exactly what we strive for, but is so hard to convey to prospective guests! It wouldn't be possible without the dedication of Sharlene and indeed all of Sam and JC's staff, working hard and doing their best to make every guests' experience special.
Cozy little cottage, conveniently located, next to the beach and restaurants
Cozy little cottage, conveniently located, next to the beach and restaurants. Had all the amenities. Some of the door knobs need to be fixed as they don't lock properly. The medicine cabinet in the bathroom in cottage 1 is in a precarious situation. Would be nice to have the stove/oven in the kitchen upgraded.
3 1/2 stars actually. It's good. It worked for us.
This house is cute, reasonably functional, has the nicest towels we've ever used! It needs a little TLC. Kitchen is well equipped, needs a can opener. The screening to the house outside the bedroom leaks Some bugs. The toilet needs a little attention to function fully. All this is easily remedied and would turn a good experience into a great one!
I have initiated a check of all screening to ensure it is fit properly into place. The can opener has been replaced. Thanks for the heads up on the toilet. We appreciate this kind of feedback from our guests. I have suggeste a check list for the housekeeper and a "To Do List" for the guests to point us to things that can be improved.
Lovely spot close to amenities of Cane Garden Bay but quiet and peaceful
Clean, fairly well maintained, lots of room to live in
Gepflegtes,kleines Cottage mit sehr gutem Service
Die Cottages sind einfach,aber gemütlich und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Zur Selbstversorgung ist alles Nötige vorhanden.Ein kleiner Supermarkt sowie die Cane Garden Bay mit einigen,wenigen Restaurants und Bars sind in Gehweite. Vom Strand ist man (nur) durch einen kleinen Friedhof und die Straße getrennt.Der Service vor Ort durch Sam und Sharlene war ausgesprochen nett und aufmerksam. Von den Auswirkungen des Hurricanes Irma ist an den Cottages nichts zu merken, die Insel insgesamt ist jedoch noch schwer gezeichnet, so dass viele Restaurants und Geschäfte zum Zeitpunkt unserer Reise nicht geöffnet waren.
