My wife and I stayed at the Van Dyke House June 4-11, 2016 for our 10 Year Anniversary and had a wonderful stay. The view from the house is fantastic ! I have nothing but great things to say about the Van Dyke House. AC in Bedrooms and Dining areas worked well. Pool was fantastic ! The house was close to everything and very private. We explored Long Bay, Smugglers Cove, Brewers Bay, Cane Garden Bay, and Rogues Bay on Tortola. Rogue's Bay was challenging to get to but well worth the effort ! Saw Lobster and eels at Brewers Bay. I highly recommend Brewers Bay and Rogue's Bay for those who are looking for a more private beach. We also took a day sail with Captain Luke on the Lion Heart Sail Cat (one of the Aristocat boats out of Road Town). I would highly recommend this trip ! We sailed to Salt, Cooper and Peter Islands. Snorkeled and dove on the wreck of the Rhone and saw everything... Barracuda, Tarpon, Turtles, Sting Rays and more ! We ate at most of the local restaurants. Our favorites were Sebastian's at Long Bay (Fish, Lobster and Rum were fantastic) , Bananakeet, Myett's at Cane Garden Bay. We also took day trips to Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke. We got to meet Foxy and enjoyed his Rum drinks and ended up at The Soggy Dollar Bar for some fun in the sun and Pain Killers. The trip could not have been any better ! We just didn't want to leave. Sam and Sharlene were very helpful with the house questions and jeep rental. I recommend a 4WD Vehicle if you plan to really explore Tortola ! We can't wait until we return ! Glenn (June 2016)

**August 2018 update: Van Dyke House was already mid remodel when Irma struck so we are still working away to get the newly designed villa finished. The plans are amazing...you won't recognize it when finished, or the 2nd villa being built on the lot above...excotong times for sure!**
Van Dyke House is situated ideally for beach lovers, just yards from the sand of Long Bay, but tucked up a discreet driveway and behind foliage that makes the villa private from passers-by. The stunning views of the North Shore include Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Cay and Green Cay. First class surfing can be found at Apple Bay, your neighbour to the east, and fantastic snorkeling is found at Smuggler's Cove, the next Bay to the West. Open up the large sliding patio doors to feel the breezes and hear the ocean, or close up and chill out with the AC found in all 3 bedrooms as well as the main living area. Van Dyke House has been recently renovated including new doors and windows, new decking and railings, new bathrooms and a plunge-pool.

Through the front door you enter the open-plan living area, which is light and airy due to the 2 sets of patio doors. One set lead to the wooden front deck which faces the ocean and offers sun loungers and additional comfortable seating. The second set of patio doors lead directly ahead to the dining porch, also offering ocean views and housing a dining table for 6. Up a few steps from the living room is the dining area offering seating for 6 and the kitchen which is equipped with a gas oven, coffee-maker and blender.
The Master Suite is accessed from the dining porch and offers a large bedroom with king size bed and sliding patio doors opening onto a smaller personal deck with ocean views. There are black-out curtains and AC. The en-suite bathroom with large shower, also has a door leading directly to the pool deck.
The second bedroom is also accessed from the dining porch and has an en-suite bathroom with shower, and sliding patio doors leading onto the pool deck. It has black-out curtains, AC and the twin beds can be made up as a king if preferred.
The third bedroom is smaller and is accessed by some outdoor stairs leading down from the dining porch. It also has AC, blinds and it's own bathroom facilities.
The beautiful tiled pool is serviced once a week and the terraced pool deck offers another option for dining beneath the bougainvillea or sunning on loungers, again with ocean views.
The villa is equipped with 2 safes, hairdryers, wifi and telephone for local outgoing calls only. The villa also offers laundry facilities for everyday use. Maid service is once midweek and she will change all linens and towels as well as clean generally.
All in all, Van Dyke House has a lot to offer, not least the proximity to the beach on an island where there are few villas available on the water. Van Dyke House offers a whole lot of accommodation, in excellent condition for a great price!
