My husband and I stayed here for a few days before attending a wrdding in USVI. Peter was absolutely amazing, the breakfast and dinner choices were phenomenal, the food was above what we expected. The villas were clean, up to date and so comfortable and inviting. We were sad to leave after 3 days, but will definitely be back!

We stayed for a week in mid-September. Very enjoyable stay - Peter the manager/host was very helpful - appreciated his hospitality. Villas are beautifully decorated - very comfortable. I'd recommend visiting BVI earlier in the year to avoid the heat & humidity in September.

Peter and his staff do an amazing job at this boutique hotel on the point overlooking Frenchmans Bay. You can snorkel and Kayak right there. They have a private protected beach area. It is near the west end ferry dock on Tortola and there is a direct ferry from Saint Thomas. The property is also near several fine beaches.

We went there on our honeymoon during late August. Found the location to be very beautiful and conveniently located. About a 20-25 minute drive from the main harbor at Road Town, and right down the street from the West End Harbor (we could quickly jump on the Jost Van Dyke ferry). Smuggler's Cove was about a 15 min drive away,...

Wonderfully low-key resort with friendly and warm staff, excellent luxury accommodations, and brilliantly beautiful natural setting. We went during very low season, so there was no bartender, but the restaurant is excellent, with great food and attentive service. Peter, the relatively new and exceedingly personable property manager has a lifetime of experience in the BVI, and through our conversations with...
