About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Villa Matija is nestled comfortably into the hillside overlooking Brewers Bay on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands

Allow yourself a little luxury and be eco-friendly at the same time! Villa Matija (pronounced ma-TEE-ya) sits above Brewers Bay with an outstanding view of Jost Van Dyke and several other smaller cays & islands. On a clear day you can see Puerto Rico (about 70 miles away)!

Stay at Villa Matija and enjoy the beauty and comfortable climate of the Caribbean with all the comforts of home at your fingertips. Villa Matija is very comfortable for up to four people. The house has two master suites only, one with a private deck & outdoor shower, the other with direct access to the villa's porch, deck & plunge pool. The downstairs bedroom can be set up with a king size bed or two twins. This makes Villa Matija ideal for two couples or a family of four. A modern kitchen and home theatre/living room with a 58' plasma TV and surround sound make it a great place to stay home and relax. Generous outdoor space flows effortlessly inside giving the feel of being outside while inside or the other way around if you prefer (great when there's a passing rain shower!)

Villa Matija is partially powered with solar energy using two solar hot water panels and twelve photovoltaic (PV) panels. Instead of a generator powered by fossil fuel Villa Matija has an alternative energy system that can run the house for modest amounts of time with little attention and quite some time with careful energy management. And don’t worry, our solar hot water is backed up by a traditional hot water heater that provides an abundant supply of hot water whatever time of day you need to shower. While both bedrooms have air conditioning, we encourage our guests to leave the windows open at night with the fan on and the AC off to experience the local climate. Most evenings are cool with very pleasant sleeping weather.

Brewers Bay beach, one of the most beautiful in the BVI, is just a 3 minute drive down the hill. Cane Garden Bay, another favorite BVI beach, is a short 10 minute drive. Road Town, the capital of the BVI is also a 10 minute drive away, yet when you’re at Villa Matija, you feel like you’re in another world!

Enjoy the beaches, snorkeling or just lounge at the house. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll be glad you chose Villa Matija as your home when you visit the BVI.

Amazing Villa with Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful 6 day stay at Villa Matija. Tom and Jessica were so great to work with throughout the entire process. The villa and views are even better in person. We spent most of our days in the pool and hanging out on the deck admiring the scenery. We enjoyed cooking in the very nice kitchen, as well, and had everything we needed. There are several restaurants that are not too far away, and we would recommend renting Tom and Jessica's car to get around the very steep and twisting roads. We had a very fun dinner at Quito's in Cane Garden Bay. They have live music and a great happy hour. Also, had a fabulous dinner at Bananakeet. The beaches/waves were very rough while we were there due to a Northern swell, so we didn't get to enjoy the beaches as much as would have liked to, but Brewer's bay beach is less than a 5 minute drive down the hill from the villa. Would highly recommend staying at Villa Matija and can't wait to start planning our return trip soon!

Beautiful view and great property!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great stay! We loved the house, the view is incredible. The proximity to the beach was great- awesome snorkeling! Jessica and Tom were very helpful through the whole process, especially as our arrival was delayed by 7hrs due to weather. They accommodated our late arrival, and were helpful in coordinating with the ferry company. Great stay!

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

From the day i first inquired about the property Jessica and Tom were very good at responding right away and met us at the ferry dock and had us follow them to the home. They were a pleasure to deal with and kept us informed of what to expect. We also rented their car which was perfect for our family and actually cheaper than a "rental"! The house itself is EXACTLY as the photos show. The views are incredible and the pool was perfect for at the end of the day. We also loved the full kitchen and having groceries delivered from Rite Way was very nice as Tom and Jessica had them put away for us. The internet was strong enough for us to use our Roku stick that we brought with to stream Netflix and Amazon movies at night. Just down the hill out of the driveway is one of the most incredible beaches i have ever seen. If this house is available, get it!!!!! You wont be disappointed. On a sidenote regarding Tortola, if this is your 1st time here, everything you've read about the roads is true, it was quite an "experience" as they are very very steep and very winding, some down right scary so i preferred to NOT drive at night. After a day or 2 you get used to them a little and more comfortable but first few times was quite intimidating!! Overall, it was a great stay at Villa Matija and my wife and i and 11 and 13 year old loved it!!! The breezes are enough to keep cool at night and bugs were non existent for our stay end of November.

Great owners, nice home, gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

Tom and Jessica were very accommodating - they picked us up from the airport and rented us their car while we were there, helped us with directions and restaurant suggestions, and offered to put our groceries away before we arrived. We had a wonderful time in Tortola and will definitely miss the amazing view from their home!

Lovely house, stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Villa Majita. The property was exactly like the photos and it has everything needed including a cooler and beach chairs. Tom and Jessica answered all my questions before we arrived and even unpacked my groceries I ordered online so that everything was ready for us.

We rented the car from Tom and Jessica and it worked out perfectly. You need a car if plan to stay anywhere on this island. A 4x4!!

There is a folder in the house with great beach recommendations and all were stunning. We had the beaches to ourselves most days - even when the cruise ships were in.

There are plenty of restaurants around so make sure to visit a few. We thought the simple places were just as good as the fancy spots.

Overall our family (2 adults and 2 teenagers) had every comfort at this property and a relaxing vacation. Would highly recommend Tortola and Villa Majilta.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Tortola and our first VRBO experience. I could not have been more pleased with Villa Matija and the excellent service from Tom & Jessica! Even prior to our arrival, Tom and Jessica were there every step of the way. They answered many questions for us, had groceries that we had delivered to the villa put away for us, and Tom personally picked us up from the airport. The villa could not be more beautiful with the most spectacular views the island has to offer. We were concerned about it feeling too warm in the villa with AC only in the bedrooms, but we never felt it was stuffy or too warm. All of the windows and doors open up and let the island breeze circulate through to make it the perfect temperature. We rented their Nissan Rogue for the duration of our stay and it worked perfectly for us. The driving is not for the light of heart, but we were used to it after the first night. We had one issue where we woke up to minimal water pressure, put in a call to Tom, and he had it fixed before we were back at the villa for the evening. There is wifi at the villa and it is adequate for non-streaming personal use. We were able to easily Face time back home with our children. They have coolers, beach towels, and beach chairs available to take with you during the day so you can enjoy the many immaculate beaches the island has to offer. We will definitely be back and could not have had a more enjoyable experience.
