John, grew up in Central New York, attended University of Rochester and Cornell, graduated as a Veterinarian, interned in St Thomas and sailed over to Long Bay Beach Resort to tend to the animals of the resort owners at that time. Over the past 35 years while owning and practicing veterinary medicine in another beautiful area, Lake Placid, New York, we would travel to Tortola to visit his veterinary mentor and the Long Bay Beach owners who encouraged us to have a villa built. In 2002 Wellsprings Villa 31 was completed. It is truly another beautiful area in the world.

Marie Cogar purchased this villa in 2002

This property offers privacy and community at the same time. We can join others for tennis, social gatherings, and a meal, or to be alone we quietly lounge on the beach, our deck, or going for a snorkel or sail.

Often coming from professional, busy lives, we need a place that allows us to immediately relax and leave behind work and responsibilities. Wellsprings Villa 31 provides us with this type of vacation. We also have come to enjoy the kind, trusting, spiritual local people.

One of our favorite times is watching the sunset over Jost Van Dyke from our Penthouse deck. As the darkness approaches, we see the string of pearl-like lights on this island.

WELLSPRINNGS VILLA

  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed on Tortola many times and especially enjoy Long Bay. This Villa was spotlessly clean and comfortable and matched the photos exactly. The local managers were most helpful. It is relatively high on the hillside and therefore the views are exceptional and the breezes very comfortable. We did not need to use AC during our stay. The pool is closed but the beach is very nice and just a short hike down the hill from the unit.

NO BRAINER

  • 5 out of 5
Loved our 6 days at the Wellsprings Villa 31. There were my wife and I. The place is in great condition, has a kitchen stocked with all cooking and serving amenities and even a cell phone to use while you are on the island with plenty of air time for local calls. The location is, in our opinion, the best place on the island. The grounds are all well kept and what remains of the beach club is also wonderful. You walk down the paved hill or take stairs to get to the beach club and beach. 5 min. This place is a no-brainer to stay at. Best beach, modern, clean, well stocked. Wifi is sketchy on most of the island. It was available enough of the time down at the beach club to suit our needs. Sam takes great care to ensure you are well taken care of.

FANTASTIC VIEWS, PERFECTLY LOCATED

  • 5 out of 5
Wellspring was beautiful. The villa is perfectly located on one of the nicest beaches in Tortola with perfect views of the sea. The villa is spacious and comfortable with lovely terraces to enjoy a meal and listen to the surf. We stayed here with another couple, and the layout worked very well. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, this is a great spot.

BEST PLACE TO STAY ON THE ISLAND

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I stayed here the February 2014. Our first trip to Tortola, BVI.

Location: After exploring most of the island I'd have to say staying on Long Bay Beach and in this villa is your best bet. The beach is gorgeous (pictures don't do it justice) and has beach chairs (free), restrooms, and a restaurant. You also have Smugglers Cove beach right next door. Together, in our opinion, the 2 nicest beaches on the island. Also the north shore is by far the nicer side of the island. In fact, most of the south side doesn't really have beaches and includes the city-like town of Road Town which we didn't find all that picturesque. Also, the West End is the best end of the island. You are close to the nicest beaches and just a short ride to Soper's Hole - a great little place with marina (sailing excursions), pastel colored shops, grocery store, and a large outdoor restaurant with great atmosphere and reasonably good food. So our advice if traveling to Tortola would be stay on the north side of the island, down at the west end, and in this unit on Long Bay.

The Villa: We stayed in the Penthouse unit. The views are best here and I have to emphasize, they are commanding/stunning/incredible. The villa was nice, up-to-date, clean, and had everything we needed. The only thing you might give up over the larger villa downstairs is having an oven but we weren't doing any baking. :-) It was an easy 3 minute walk to the beach and there is parking for your rental car. I have to say one more time about the views from the Penthouse unit - there were times when we couldn't decide whether we wanted to just sit out on the deck and enjoy the views (which we did with our coffee every morning) or lay on the beach and for us that is saying something.

Once last thing. We are particular about where we stay when we travel and we would definitely stay here if we returned. A no brainer.

Owner's Response: It is heart warming that your time both in and around our villa was special. We did add a few suggestions you made as more towel bars, new bathroom blind etc. Thanks for renting with us.

WONDERFUL HOME BASE FOR A TORTOLA VACATION

  • 5 out of 5
Four of us rented this wonderful villa which rivaled places we've stayed in Hawaii. We really didn't have to go anywhere else. The view was great and the beach was one of the best we saw on the island. Everything was as advertised at the time we booked it. There was a change in local amenities that occurred after we placed our deposit. The owner was quick to let us know of the change and adjusted the price accordingly. We'd definitely rent again and would recommend it to friends and family.

Owner's Response: It was wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed your vacation while renting our villa at the beautiful mile long Long Bay Beach. The beauty of the sunsets, as well as seeing the 'sting of pearl' night lights on Jost Van Dyke, seen from the covered decks are forever memories. Please do vacation again in our Wellsprings Villa 31. Thank You, Marie & John

LOVELY PLACE, LOVELY PEOPLE

  • 5 out of 5
We have nothing but wonderful things to say about both the owners of this villa, and its local caretaker, Sam. The villa is absolutely as advertised - spacious, clean, comfortable, well kept and fully stocked. Sam was attentive, friendly, and absolutely professional. We have stayed in several different villas in Long Bay, and this was our favorite. We had a fantastic week on Tortola, and especially enjoyed the view from the deck which was unsurpassed! We can't wait to go back.
