Alfresco - Long Bay

Alfresco Villa is a wonderful luxury secluded property within a private hillside estate overlooking the beautiful Long Bay Beach.  This Caribbean villa rental has 2 pavilions which offer spacious living & plenty of deck space for you to relax......


Alfresco has been finished to a very high standard, with a swimming pool with virtual infinity edge offering a panoramic view of neighbouring islands Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Cay & onward to other Virgin Islands.  Alfresco is a fantastic vacation rental property, for you to enjoy your stay.

You will enter the property through an imposing mahogany door into a mezzanine level which adjoins the living room with stunning views out to sea. Sweep down the curvaceous staircase into the living room & relax into one of the sumptuous sofas. There is a vast selection of channels on the 54” satellite TV, a good selection of DVDs can be watched on the DVD & the music system is right there too if you prefer some music to listen to, either using your own ipod/iphone or something from our collection.  The wonderful main deck is right outside where you can enjoy the fabulous vista, take a dip in the pool or simply enjoy Alfresco living with lunch around the table. 

The mezzanine leads you to the Kitchen with its well-appointed high end units with granite counter-tops & stainless steel appliances.  Even the kitchen sink is a great place to look out at the amazing sea view.  Should you need any provisions for your arrival, just let us know & this can easily be arranged. The Dining Room beacons you from the kitchen with its majestic views of the islands. The glass & stone table is bespoke in this open air pavilion & gives a nice airy feeling to your dining experience. The dining area is also a great place at night which provides an elegant setting for dinner, whether you are cooking yourself or if you decide to bring a chef in.

From the Dining Room you have easy access down a curving opening arms staircase to the splendorous main deck, planters are filled with local palms, bird of paradise, heliconia, gingers & bougainvillea. Once at the pool, take a dip, enjoy the views & relax in the sun on the comfortable sun beds, there is an outdoor shower on the deck for your convenience.  In the evening enjoy this area with a cocktail, watch the sun go down, daydream at the fabulous pool colour sequences (programme your personal colour favourites). You might want to rev it up a bit, put on some music & have some friends over you have met during your stay.  

All rooms have large sliding doors which disappear into the walls to open up the house, this offers open plan living & complete flexibility to move around Alfresco with ease. Plenty of books are available, if you don’t finish one take it home, please leave one in its place so the next guest has some reading pleasure too. Board games are provided for an evening in.

The bedroom pavilion offers an upper level Master Suite. This has beautiful views of the islands & beyond from the balcony & spacious outdoor private deck. The bathroom is finished with a gorgeous stone Travertine & natural pebbles, the oversized shower offers you an invigorating experience. You can gazel at the wonderful wood ceiling as you look up from your king size bed handcrafted in reclaimed teak from Bali. You will be sleeping under Egyptian cotton percale which will give you a luxurious night’s sleep.  If you stay in October, there is a wonderful Jacaranda tree full of cotton like flowers which cascades over the outdoor private terrace leading out from the bathroom.  There is also an extra single bed which can be used, should you wish to have one of the children in with you.

The second bedroom can be found at deck level & offers comfy easy access. You can choose either twins or a king size bed for this room depending on your needs.  Same Egyptian cotton for that perfect night’s sleep.  Again this bathroom is finished in lovely stone Travertine & natural pebbles with beautifully bespoke mill work in the bathroom.  The private wrap around deck can be used as another area to relax & enjoy your stay. We have an extra single bed if this works better for a family stay or perhaps a 7th guest.

The third bedroom is very private & leads down from the main deck via steps to an outdoor space overlooking trees & landscape. You can enjoy the sea views & ocean sounds at night if you wish to. This bedroom has a low 4 poster Queen Bed with local art work to give a contemporary feel to this space.  Again luxury Egyptian cotton is featured throughout the property.  The bathroom is finished with stone Travertine and natural pebbles in your lovely spacious walk in shower. At Alfresco you can enjoy the privacy of this bedroom.  Ideal for 2 couples staying, so you have some privacy.

This property is easily accessible to Long Bay Beach if you want to drive or walk, up to you.  Smugglers Cove is around the corner (need to drive) unless you are fit!  There are local restaurants within driving distance of the property, on Long Bay Beach Tropical Fusion is the nearest restaurant, Sebastian’s is just over the hill, you have The Sugar Mill restaurant just on from that & other local eateries, D’Coalpot restaurant is in Carrot Bay which is a fabulous place to eat locally.  Soper’s Hole Marina is just 6 minutes ride away, and there’s a local restaurant there where you can watch the sailors coming in after a day at sea.   You can also look around the marina & see all the larger yacht’s moored up or just stopping by for some supplies. A nice place to relax.

Alfresco overlooks Long Bay Beach, neighbouring islands Jost Van Dyke & Sandy Cay within this private hillside estate.  The villa offers easy access to explore the beaches, restaurants, shops & bars.  Alfresco is one of the best of BVI Vacation Villas.

Our expectations were exceeded

Booking Alfresco Villa was fantastic and easy, I was really satisfied with the help given during the booking process.  The villa is a 5 star property, clean comfortable, well equipped & attractive.  The facilities were wonderful, everything was great.  The maid was great too!  Our expectations were exceeded.  We hired a jeep rental, used Island Time for a day sail & also for the water taxi from St Thomas.  We would definitely recommend Alfresco & in fact already have!  Everything was perfect.

Perfect location/incredible views

Loved our stay at alfresco. Location was great…close to wonderful restaurants on the water and smugglers cove. House is as great as advertised. Property manager took good care of us too. Eric, the cab driver that Sharlene connected us with was fantastic. Can’t wait for our next trip back to alfresco!

Our week of paradise

The house is perfectly situated on the island. The managers are wonderful with suggestions. They sent links to groceries and met them when delivered to sort out refrigerated items. Pinky met us at West End and led us to our week of paradise. She even made roti for our first evening there. The pool was used after our daily ventures on the island. While the roads have no names, you will easily find your way around the island. The views are everything you expect and more.

House is amazing

Thank you for the wonderful vacation.  The house is amazing and the views while dining were exceptional.  Your patience in answering all my questions was greatly appreciated.  The best part was the negative Covid test requirement was dropped while we were there.  It gave us an extra day with out worry of scheduling a test.  The kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans. The pool is an added bonus that was used daily.

Date of arrival 10 June 2022 The Mayberry's

Gorgeous views, great experience

From the moment I inquired about this property I rec’d prompt detailed responses. Great experience. Sharlene and team arranged for a rental car (Jerry’s) pick up at the to meet outside West End, customs, provided provision company names and all provisions were put away when we arrived, arranged for a surprise Happy Anniversary greeting with an absolutely beautiful floral arrangement with balloons and champagne. They were a pleasure to work with. I would also love to give a shout out to Louise for keeping the home spotless and doing our laundry. We would certainly stay again and will miss sunset from the pool. Thank you for sharing your home.

Just as we remembered

Everything at the house was just as we remembered it. It just has a beautiful layout. We love the fact that the house sort of embraces the pool, and unlike other villas I’ve looked at online, this one seems unusual in the way it surrounds the pool vertically as well - it is so thoughtfully designed in that way. You have plenty of space but are never really very far away from the others.

We took the 6pm ferry to JVD for New Year’s Eve.   We rented a small powerboat for a few days, we went to JVD, around Tortola and up to the Baths.  Some good friends of ours were just arriving on the island as we were leaving - they will be sailing this week.

I can easily imagine that we’ll be back in touch with you about renting Alfresco again.

Gazing out at the magnificent view!

Wow! What a whirlwind the past two days have been-as you know we left the villa on Saturday morning…we spent every second we could gazing out at the magnificent view that your fantastic home provides. We gazed at that view for days! We hardly left the house until the very end of our trip.  We spent a day at the Baths where we were nearly the only people there, unbelievable. Then a wonderful day with Debs around all the outer islands where we were able to pay our final respects to Guys sister on the shore of Peter Island. The entire trip was fantastic.

One of the most beautiful villas we have ever stayed in!

Probably one of the most beautiful villas we have ever stayed in, privately located in the hills overlooking the beautiful ocean.

We were three couples and the accommodation worked out perfectly.  All bedrooms are luxuriously appointed with amazing shower areas finished to an exceptionally high standard.

Lots of space to relax and enjoy the most stunning views of Long Bay from the pool and terrace with exquisite sunsets from the BBQ area in the evening.

Would love to return. Sam, JC and Allison were a joy from booking to  accommodating us at the villa. 

Alfresco is a delight, pure paradise.

Everything about Alfresco Villa was lovely!

Everything about Alfresco Villa was lovely. Sam, the property manager made the trip exceptional. We traveled during the strict covid measures, and she helped us to navigate the fiasco that the BVI created. The villa itself was a welcome respite from that stress. Well stocked kitchen meant that we could look after ourselves perfectly during enforced quarantine. All her contacts were kind and helpful and made our trip amazing.
I've never had the luxury to stay somewhere so nice. I do hope I have the chance again.

Perfect spaces to relax 

We enjoyed another wonderful winter stay at Al Fresco, staying a month over late January and most of February 2021. The house and property are beautiful and very comfortable, with the perfect spaces to relax, remote work and practice yoga. Al Fresco's location on the quiet and peaceful West End of Tortola makes for a great getaway. Al Fresco overlooks Long Bay beach, which can be reached with a short walk or drive, where you are often the only one on the beach for hours. The area is also home to several of the BVI's best winter surf breaks, a reasonably well kept secret that keeps us coming back.

Allison, as well as Sam and JC at Villas of Tortola and the staff that maintain Al Fresco are wonderful and a pleasure to deal with.

Can't wait to return!

So Perfect!

Beautiful views; beautiful home!  

We had an excellent stay at Alfresco in Dec 2019. The views from this villa are exceptional. It is comfortably and thoughtfully appointed throughout. We enjoyed making our own meals most of the time and dining out occasionally. Smugglers Cove and Long Bay beach are the closest (and most beautiful) beaches on Tortola! You will truly enjoy your stay here. Allison (and her staff) are super quick to respond if you need anything or have any questions. Highly recommend Alfresco!!!

Unbelievable Villa  

We had another wonderful stay at Alfresco. It is such a unbelievable villa. Made it back home late last night. Thanks to everyone involved to help make this another memorable vacation.  Regards, Jim

Date of arrival Sep 21, 2019 

Lovely week  

Exactly as pictures show, large bedrooms with lovely bathrooms. Delightful pool. The drive up to the house is steep and curvy, but this is like most of the island roads. Close to lovely beaches and great restaurants- loved Da Coal Pot (everything so good including desserts) and Bananakeet (road is terrifying at night though).

The only con was that some window screens are not fit well, so mosquitos come in because there is no glass in the windows :(

Glad we chose Alfresco  

Alfresco turned out to be great choice for us. Sometimes when you travel somewhere for the first time you look around and decide on the next trip you would make some different choices. This was not the case for us. This house was the right house in the right location. There is not better area of Tortola to be in, in my opinion. The house was awesome in every way. We had three couples and this three bedroom layout was great. The outdoor area and pool were great and the view from those areas and every bedroom and porch off of each were great. Thank you Sharlene for showing us how to get there. We will be back.

The layout of this villa is so well thought out. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Best Tropical Vacation!  

Alfresco was the best tropical vacation villa we've ever experienced - with such large welcoming common areas, spacious bedrooms, and ample private space options for quiet personal time. We loved the north coast, western Tortola location - with sufficient elevation to catch the breezes and giving us a post card view of Jost Van Dyke. Sam's colleague PattyAnn was available as needed for miscellaneous questions and advice - a superb service we've never experienced with prior villa rentals. All three sets of our guests luxuriated in and were wowed by the accommodations - making it extra gratifying to be their hosts. The outdoor shower was a hit for de-salting after a day in the ocean. Your kitchen served us well by easily accommodating our needs for meal preparation. The rental SUV through Jerry's ran flawlessly - with vehicle availability at the airport expediting our arrival to the villa. For anyone desiring either bareboat or crewed powerboat rental, I can heartily recommend Island Time Powerboat Rentals at Nanny Cay - which we utilized nine times over our 22 day stay.  A triple thumbs up experience. With any luck, we'll be back to book Alfresco in the not too distant future.  With best wishes for you and gratitude for your delightful venue, Geof

Home Away from Home!  

Our island "home away from home"! We were last there Feb. 23 - March 16, 2019. This was our fourth trip back to Alfresco, our seventh to Tortola. While there were lots of changes on the island due to Hurricane Irma, we found Al Fresco to be just as welcoming and lovely as ever! The pool, the vista over to Jost Van Dyke and the hillside down to Long Bay still takes our breath away. This is truly a perfect place to relax and decompress. "Must try" restaurants include The Bananakeet, D'Coal Pot and Quito's. Thanks to Allison, Neil, Sam, JC, Sharlene (who greeted us) and Louise (our housekeeper). They are a great team that truly enhance the island experience. Also, a car rental from Jerry's is a must to get into all the nooks and crannies of the island! Can't wait for stay #5 at Alfresco! 

Date of arrival February 23, 2019 Cheryl Urban

Amazing experience with our family! 

We took our two kids to Alfresco Villa for a family winter vacation. The villa is beautiful, the views are breathtaking and the owner/ property manager give great instruction and advise on anything you may need. I even asked where to get bug spray and beach toys for my 3 year old, both items showed up at our door the same day! We would denfitly stay here again. It was a real experience !!!

Spectacular property  

Alfresco is a spectacular property. It is everything you can imagine plus more. The views are stunning, the pool fabulous and everything about the house was wonderful. The layout of the house is well thought out and is terrific for reading in a private getaway or getting the group together in the central areas of the house. The assistance and advice that Allison gave prior to our arrival was second to none and the help we received from members of the staff was extremely helpful. We are already in discussions about dates for our next stay at Alfresco Villa.

Date of arrival September 15, 2018   Jim & Cindy 

We loved Alfresco! 
We loved Alfresco! It was so accommodating for what we needed. The view was phenomenal and the pool was perfect! Everyone on the island was so attentive and the management staff you have there worked well with us as we arrived later than expected due to flights being delayed. We will be staying again for sure!

A beautiful place to be able to call home for a week! 

We had a wonderful stay on Tortola in Alfresco. The house is gorgeous, with outdoor spaces abounding - plenty of room to gather as a family (5, with 3 older children) and plenty of space, indoor and out, to read to find privacy to read or nap or enjoy the view. Luxuriating in the pool looking out over the ocean to Jost Van Dyke is amazing, and having everything so well laid out and appointed around you made our week a dream. The island itself is an adventure to discover. The guidebook in the house is very helpful and we found our way to many different beaches on the North Side where we snorkeled and relaxed, climbed Sage Mountain, rented a boat for the day, and enjoyed dinners out as well as in. The owners will recommend 4W drive and it is very handy to have - we had some rain showers and it makes you feel nice and secure to have 4W drive under you. Making the arrangements couldn't have been easier, and everyone involved was extremely helpful and responsive to our questions in preparation for going and while we were there. Thank you for helping us have a wonderful family vacation!

Views, Views, and More Views!!  

Our family had a wonderful time at Alfresco. Allison and Sam were very helpful and they were available whenever you had a question. Thank you so much! Their efforts to make our visit seamless started before we arrived and continued until we were on the home bound ferry. 
Alfresco is a very special home and we enjoyed every minute of our stay there. We found the kitchen well-appointed and we had everything we needed to cook great meals. The layout of the house allowed everyone their own space and also privacy when desired. It would have been nice to have had air conditioning in the main house though. The July temperatures made it difficult to cook until well after sundown. However, that just meant more time in the gorgeous pool and taking in the absolutely breathtaking views. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Date of arrival   July 14, 2017 

Hillside Perfection  

We sought out Tortola in hopes of finding some quiet, relaxing family time. The biggest part of that hope was finding the perfect place to call home for a week. Alfresco was that answer. The house was stunning, with views that caught your eye every time you turned your head. We used the well-appointed kitchen most nights, including grilling out under the stars with the sound of the ocean in the background. While we did several day trips to places like Virgin Gorda, Smuggler's Cove, and Roadtown, everybody was most content spending the days being lazy by the pool...reading, sleeping, and laughing. My family left feeling content, rested, and most importantly, reconnected. 
A special Thank You to Allison and Sam for staying in contact with us, helping up organize a car rental, and detail the best ways to get to the island. Their help was immeasurable and provided some comfort for these relatively inexperienced travelers! 
An absolutely amazing experience, and a most perfect home for those wanting to "get away from it all"!

Beautiful Rental Home  

We had an amazing trip to Tortola. Alfresco is an incredible house! We travel a lot and we have rented numerous houses over the years! I can honestly say Alfresco is on the top of our list!!! It reminded me of those doll houses that folded shut and you carried around as a child. Alfresco was the doll house unfolded with the most spectacular views! We usually go, go, go on vacation. We found ourselves being much more laid back and spending much more time in our rental home! 

Thank you so much for your patience and your wiliness to work with us. What a gift to spend a week in your home. Amazing!!!! We will definitely be back!

Date of arrival   April 17, 2017 

Absolute Great Villa!! 

Alfresco villa in Tortolla was absolutely beautiful!!! The view is outstanding and we enjoyed stunning sun rises and sun downs sometimes. The four of us (2 couples) all lives stressful lives and we were simply looking forward to beautiful solitude which we found in Alfresco. We stayed at the villa most of time reading in the sun, enjoying the views, napping, and being in the pool. The kitchen was perfect and we cooked in most nights and dined out several. We slept most nights in large bedrooms with the windows opened falling asleep listening to the ocean which was very peaceful. We would highly recommend this villa!!

Date of arrival   February 9, 2017 

Wonderful Vacation!  

My family of 6 recently spent 10 days at Alfresco and it was an amazing vacation! The location on the West End is the perfect place for peace and quiet but also very close to so many beaches and restaurants. Sam and JC were a huge help as we planned days trips and other activities. They even put up a Christmas tree for our family! We highly recommend this beautiful property! It is an adventure to drive to but that added a lot of fun and laughs in our family. We will be back!

Date of arrival    December 22, 2016 

Return trip was just as fabulous as the first time!!!!!!  

Our second visit to Alfresco and we loved it so much last time we brought friends this time. They had an equally fantastic impression and experience. Allison and Sam were wonderful again, every detail catered to. They were wonderful with suggestions on activities and car rentals; everything was seemless. The location is wonderful, so peaceful and quiet but close to activity and ferry's when we wanted to venture out. The men had the tough job of running down the hill and grabbing some wraps for lunch, while the ladies waited for the delivery basking in the sun at the pool. Pretty rough life, wish we could have stayed longer. Snorkeling great in Smuggler's Cove, ferry close for our day trip to JVD, day on Virgin Gorda was wonderful. Heck, writing this review is hard sitting back in Kansas City......really wish I was back on the pool deck taking in the views!!! Thanks again Allison and Sam for all you did to make the stay what it was. See you next year (or sooner if we become independently wealthy and I don't have to work anymore!!! Ha.) 

Date of arrival     November 5, 2016 

Fantastic Vacation  

We highly recommend vacationing at Villa Alfresco! We travelled as a family of five - 2 adults and 3 teenagers and found the house the perfect setup to give everyone the space that they needed. Location was great. Easy access to ferries for day trips to Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke made for truly exciting excursions. Dealt with Allison and Sharlene regarding all of the details and was very pleased with their attention to detail and timely responses to any questions. I would not hesitate to stay again!

Week in Paradise  

Alfresco is a fabulous villa. We stayed last week with our grown children and had an amazing week. I was first attracted to this villa because of the view which is gorgeous. After researching a little more about Tortola I decided that Alfresco would fit our needs perfectly. It is located in the West End which is convenient to Soapers Hole Marina and a 45 minute ferry ride from Charlotte -Amalie. The managers, Sam and Sharlene, made everything very seamless. Sharlene and Jerry, the rental car owner, met us and immediately we were on our way to the villa. We loved every aspect of the villa. The villa is well appointed ranging from the kitchen to the pool towels and noodles. Tortola is beautiful. We snorkeled at Smuggler's Cove and Brewer's Bay, hiked Sage Mountain, guys went fishing, and we all had a day snorkel trip with Island Surf and Sail. The restaurants were delicious...Bananakeet Cafe, Tropical Fusion, dCoal Pot, Sugar Mill, Fish and Lime Inn. Sharlene and Sam's recommendations were on target. We were very spoiled by the spectacular sunsets...not sure if we can ever find another accommodation that offers as much as Alfresco. We will be back! PS We had our little night watchman...every night outside the master a chickenhawk would roost under the eaves. It was such a treat to see him there every evening!

Paradise is Villa Alfresco 

My husband and I have been to Tortola a number of times and have always had a great time. Yet, this visit was perfect; we enjoyed every minute of our week at the villa. Overlooking views from every angle of the hillside villa were awesome. Sunsets were beautiful, Villa landscaping was immaculate. Very comfortable bedrooms/baths with choice of open air and/or air con. The owners have thought of everything to make the stay memorable. Thank you for sharing your dream with us.

Amazing time at Villa Alfresco 

Alfresco is amazing. The pictures don't do it justice. We loved our home away from home. The architecture was spectacular, the views fantastic, gardens beautiful and we just couldn't seem to get out of the infinity pool. The layout provides beautiful common areas, while the bedrooms provided privacy. It was conveniently located to fantastic beaches like Smuggler's Cove and Cane Garden Bay. We appreciated all of the assistance the owners provided in securing airfare and our rental car. We would recommend flying into St. Thomas and taking the ferry to the West End. It was a beautiful way to begin our vacation.

"Incredible home, fantastic views, perfect vacation!!"

Our incredible BVI's vacation at Alfresco started with the owner, Allison. Allison was amazing to work with, providing us vacation information even before we booked the home. She helped me find a much cheaper airfare to get to BVI, and once booked, she hooked me up with a rental car agency (Jerrys-highly recommended), sailing recommendation (we used Kuralu recommended from a friend of our and it was awesome)and dive shop recommendation (Blue Water Divers-highly recommended). Before we arrived, we received a list of restaurant recommendations, and a list of stores to secure provisions, including Riteway, who delivered our pre-ordered groceries to the house prior to our arrival. 

The home could be difficult to find on your own, so Kia, Alfresco's caretaker, had us follow her to the house. The drive can be scary the first time or two as it is quite steep and curvy, but once you get the hang of it, its a breeze. 

Upon arrival at the home, we were all totally amazed. The pictures online are beautiful, but you can't create the beauty of this home and view in pictures. It is simply breathtaking the first time you stand on the pool deck and look out towards Jost Van Dyke. The first sunset there is even more incredible. The house was perfect for 6 of us, including my wife, 2 teen daughters and their 2 friends. The 3 bedrooms rooms are decorated very nicely, and the beds are super comfortable. The shower in the master is awesome! There is AC in each bedroom, but not in the other living spaces, although we did not find the need for it. There was a breeze the entire time we were there. The kitchen was very well equipped for all of our needs, with very nice appliances if you want to do your own cooking. We ate breakfast in most days, and everything worked perfectly. We decided to buy some fresh lobster one day in Nanny Cay Marina (ask for Boss-live lobster!) and grilled on the deck. The BBQ worked great. We didn't watch much tv as there was just too much to do there, but the living room is very comfortable, with Directv, a nice stereo, and tons of books to read. 

The patio was our favorite part of the house. The pool is spectacular, with an "infinity" edge appearance, sitting on the edge of the mountain, overlooking Jost. It is simply awesome. We spent a whole lot of time in the pool, including late into the night, with the disco lights blasting!

I HIGHLY recommend Alfresco and we can't wait to go back!!!

“Incredible villa!”

Where do I begin? The description doesn't do this villa justice. It was even more amazing than described -- hard to believe but it's true. Our sons in their 20's have relocated due to their jobs but we make it a point every year to be together for a week. The laughs around the pool have created memories that will be forever imprinted in our brains. The scuba diving, snorkeling, boating, and fishing were fantastic. Allison's recommendations were spot on. Thanks so much for everything!

“Beautiful Property with Stunning Views”

“The property was perfect. It had everything that we could possibly need. It is a well thought out rental and made our stay both easy and relaxing.

The views were picture perfect. We enjoyed the ocean breeze and felt safe and secure throughout the trip.

Our location was perfect with easy access to beaches, restaurants, shops and ferries’

Favorite activity:  “Our favorite activity was relaxing at the pool on the rental property.”

Alfresco is awesome! We have been going to the outer islands in the Bahamas for the past few years and once we arrived at Alfresco we all looked at each other and said "why have we not been coming here all along!" We had an amazing time in Tortola and at Alfresco.

This is house was just perfect for us -2 adults and 3 boys (14, 11,& 9). We all enjoyed the pool from the time we woke up to late in the evenings- the pool lights are so fun! We enjoyed exploring the island during the mornings and then venturing back home in the afternoons to relax by the pool and enjoy the sunsets and views.

My kids never wanted to leave the house! We enjoyed all the wonderful restaurants, took some great day trips, and explored the beautiful islands- we can't wait to come back! The best Family vacation we have had!

Once was great but twice was nicer
Date of Stay January 25, 2015 
This was our second 2 week stay at the amazing villa Alfresco. From the extraordinary views at sun up, sun down or anything in between to the exquisitely decorated bedrooms, this villa is a hidden gem. We enjoyed coffee by the pool, lunch overlooking the bay and cocktails by the pool. On some days we ventured to the close by secluded beaches or over the mountains to Cane Garden Bay. All days were paradise. Sam and JP are wonderfully helpful in all aspects as managers. They recommended new restaurants and we enjoyed their suggestions. And they are very conscientious and thoughtful in wanting us to have a superior adventure. We look forward to returning for visit number 3 in 2016
