Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in British Virgin Islands - Villa Matija

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.

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.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Truly paradise. The property is exactly what the photos looked like and view even better. Tom and Jessica were a pleasure to rent from. They answered all of our questions and more. The house sits above Brewers Bay which is a great little beach. We explored the island, and every beach we went too, we were either the only family or shared it with only a couple other people. Highly recommend Brewers beach, Smugglers Cove, and Long Bay (East End). We ate at several nice restaurants, from fine dining to casual beach spots but loved Bananakeet and Myetts the most. The BVI's are a great family oriented vacation spot that is not only beautifully landscaped everywhere you look, but also safe and friendly. We took a daysail out one day with Aristocat and was probably the highlight of our trip. Great snorkeling spots and friendly crew. They were excellent with our two young girls. Also, you can't miss going to the baths on Virgin Gorda.

It was nice to come home everyday to a gorgeous home, jump in the pool and relax with an amazing view. Overall, we couldn't of been happier!

This house is phenomenal! The views cannot be beat. This was the first leg of our honeymoon, and it did not disappoint. We spent almost every meal on the deck. I do not think we could get a better view for a romantic dinner at any restaurant. We spent mornings doing yoga on the deck, using the outdoor speakers to play a podcast. One morning we enjoyed a passing rain shower and then a beautiful rainbow. We enjoyed exploring the island and then spent afternoon/evenings back on the deck in the pool or just lounging. There was a bit of a northern swell while we were there, so unfortunately Brewers Bay was rough for most of our visit, but Tom directed us to some calm beaches off the beaten path for snorkeling and swimming. The contact prior to our trip was great. Tom and Jessica answered all our questions. Tom met us at our rental car place and led us to the villa. We also had groceries delivered to the villa. Tom/Jessica met them at the house around noon on the day we were arriving, so all was unpacked and ready when we got there! We would def recommend this place to friends! We hope to be back soon!

Cannot say enough about how amazing this villa is. The views are extraordinary. The two bedroom home is spacious and comfortable. Nice size kitchen. Two refrigerators. We rented the car, which was a must. The pool was such a great attribute. We used it every day, it is bigger than the pictures let off. Tom and Jessica are amazing. They were in contact with us prior to our visit and answered every question we had. They met us at the airport and helped us get to the villa. The four of us will absolutely be back and will recommend this villa to all our friends and family!
