Overview

Photos and Description of the Tortola vacation house rental

House, 2 Bedrooms + futon, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

**PLEASE NOTE THAT THE VRBO DEFAULT QUOTE IS FOR 4 GUESTS. THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE OF $150 FOR A 5TH GUEST (CHILD ONLY) SLEEPING ON THE FUTON)**

Da Blue House is a traditional West Indian cottage with a long history of local boatbuilders and craftsmen as occupants. Lovingly decorated and updated the cottage offers great value for money as an idyllic taste of Caribbean life for someone on a budget. Surrounded by a fenced-in yard, the cottage is child and pet friendly and the ocean is just a few steps away...

The master bedroom has a king-size bed and the second bedroom has a trundle bed which pulls out to become 2 twin beds. A futon in the living room offers bedding for an additional 5th guest (child only). Both bedrooms have efficient, quiet wall-mount AC units and the living room has a 32' flatscreen TV and DVD player. The one bathroom has a shower and there is an additional shower outside for rinsing off after the beach. The kitchen is equipped with a 4 burner propane stove and a large refrigerator. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining room, although most people like to eat on the covered side porch which has seating for 6 at a picnic table and bench. There is also a charcoal grill.

The ocean is just the other side of a quiet road from the front yard. There is seating on the front porch as well as large comfortable garden furniture so you can sit and watch the surf, the sunset and the people walking by...or take a nap on the hammock in the shade of the palm trees!

And then of course there's the surf...'off the wall' is in front of the house, also in Carrot Bay is 'donkey spot and 'school house point'. The next bay to the west (a 10-15 minute stroll) is Apple Bay, home of the awesome reef-break as well as the famous Bomba Shack for your after-surf beer and entertainment. Cane Garden Bay, a 10 minute drive to the east offers a point break of the same name as well as a beach full of bars and restaurants and live music.

Carrot Bay really is the loveliest neighborhood in Tortola with friendly people stopping to chat and welcome. Carrot Bay also has Jean's Place just a couple of hundred yards away for delicious rotis, and other local dishes with ocean views, and The North Shore Shell Museum offering the best local dishes like rot is, shrimp, fresh fish and fantastic mango, banana and coconut pancakes. There is also the more upscale Sugar Mill for a special night out or their "Islands" beachfront restaurant for lunch.

Having lived here ourselves as a growing family of surfers, we highly recommend it!

There is a telephone for local calls and incoming overseas call and we also have wifi.
