Villa Towanda is an elegant three bedroom villa that offers stunning views over Long Bay and Smugglers Cove beaches and the islands that line the north western horizon of Tortola.
Designed around an open patio and covered porches, you will find privacy and shade when desired and fun in the sun with our beautiful Caribbean weather and cooling trade winds. This villa is all about the exotic with it's rich colours and eclectic collection of deign and artifacts. Rich dark wood louvred doors throughout lend an elegant feel.
Offering complete uninterrupted privacy, large mahogany doors are set into a vine-draped terracotta wall at the end of the driveway. Through the gates a zen-like brick path leads to the main house which has a very open living room with wifi, digital cable TV, DVD and Apple TV. Adjacent to the living room is located the well-equipped gourmet kitchen including gas oven, dishwasher etc. and large shutters that remain open to the porch. The laundry room is found off the kitchen and various doors lead from the main house to comfortable outdoor dining and sitting areas and a hammock.
Cushioned teak sun-loungers offer comfortable lounging for those looking for either sun or shade and a gas BBQ completes the requirements for a holiday spent in your own personal paradise! A washroom is located off the pool deck as well as an outdoor fresh-water shower for a quick rinse.
The artfully and eclectically designed bedrooms afford one privacy. The first floor bedroom suite will leave you with the feeling of being in Morocco, with its coloured glass lanterns, vibrant green, yellow and orange decor. This bedroom has a queen size bed as well as a daybed, walk-in closet and large private alfresco shower and a covered porch with ocean views.
Exterior stairs lead up from the pool deck to a separate pavilion that houses the master suite, and then another bedroom is located above the Moroccan room. Both bedrooms are furnished with beautiful dark custom cabinetry for a clean, polished feel with exotic touches from chandeliers in the bathrooms, wood carvings, local basketry and family heirlooms to a fabulous stone waterfall alfresco shower off the master bath. With another area for 2 sun-loungers located between these 2 suites and ocean views from the decks in front of each suite, Towanda offers a quiet spot for everyone. Villa Towanda will offer you a truly unique and relaxed vacation!
Beach chairs and a cooler will keep you comfortable at the beach. Laundry facilities are available for your everyday use. Maid service is once midweek and she will change all linens and towels as well as doing a general clean.

Ah Towanda! The perfect house for 3 couples. Equal bedrooms & baths plus plenty of room for alone time. The view is spectacular, along with the privacy and quiet setting, who could ask for more. This is our 6th trip to Tortola and by far the best Villa we have rented. Of course with a view like this there is one drawback, the drive up the mountain. But with 4 wheel drive and after 2-3 trips it was a piece of cake. The kitchen is loaded with all the stuff you will need to eat, drink and be merry. New beach chairs were a big plus. Had many people ask us on the beaches "Where did you get those chairs". Evidently many rentals do not include beach chairs. This is a must on Tortola as most of the beaches do not have any facilities. Do not be afraid to deal with the wiring of money to France (even though VRBO says not to wire money) the owner is very easy to deal with and everything went great. We loved Towanda and Tortola and hope to return soon.

I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip to Tortola and your beautiful home! While the pictures looked promising the actual experience was well beyond our expectations, you have done such a lovely job with the design and details. We really enjoyed nothing more than drinking coffee early in the morning looking out over jost van dyke. JC, Sam and the rest of the house team did a great job of taking care of us as well. We very much look forward to returning to Towanda.
And if you are ever in New York please do let us know, we would love to take you out for a drink.
All the best,
