About Craig Corser

I live in Alberta, Canada. I am involved in secondary wood manufacturing, elk farming and organic food production. My wife Kelly and I, have been married for 32 years. We have three adult children and three grandchildren. We all love Tortola and Cane Garden Bay.

Craig Corser purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Craig Corser chose Tortola

This property was originally purchased and developed by an uncle and eleven other 'cockeyed optimists' from Alberta, Canada, in 1979. My father bought out eight of these twelve in 1990 and upgraded the property. I got involved soon after and have been managing the property for about 20 years. We have continuously improved the property, including a full renovation in 2013.

What makes this cottage unique

We are located at the quiet end of Cane Garden Bay, literally steps from the beach and a short level walk to everything you need.

Our property is 1.75 acres and is unique in that we have a large, lush private yard, shaded by coconut palms and almond trees. There are hammocks to relax in and high speed wireless for your convenience.

There is a tiny, family run bar and general store right next door. Rental cars are available locally.

We did a full renovation of the property in October of 2013. We added a 14' x 18' gazebo to the yard. The gazebo houses a charcoal grill and tables.

With four rental units (see VRBO Listing #'s 914871, 914873 and 914875 for details on the other three units) and a large private yard, we are a great place for family vacations, weddings and business meetings.

Nice, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cottage and good location. Just a short walk to the beach. The staff , Sam and Sharlene, are very responsive and helpful. Clean and well kept. They even supply some beach towels, chairs and a cooler and stocked some beverages in the refrigerator for us before our arrival.

Great find!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I found this place before heading out for a week on a catamaran. Very close to beach, market, restaurants. Staff were always checking on us to make sure we were comfortable. I liked the quiet neighbors across the street better than the roosters!

Cane Garden Bay Cottages

  • 5 of 5

We are just wrapping up two weeks at Cane Garden Bay Cottage ...this places is nothing short of spectacular and Sam and Sharlene, who managed our stay were absolutely the best from the beginning to the sadly approaching end of stay on Sunday...but not yet! We have decided to come back next year...again on the off season...but for three weeks instead of two. It is that good! July/early August in Cane Garden Bay is cooler than our place in Florida.

The cottage is well laid out, well maintained and very convenient for the most beautiful beach in the Caribbean...Cane Garden Bay. The people of Cane Garden Bay....a village of families...are welcoming and every morning walk is full of greetings and good mornings. We were struck by the many local families who bring their children every day to swim in this beautiful bay with crystal clear water. The kids have so much fun. Did I mention the sunsets from Cane Garden Bay over Jost Van Dyke. We snorkeled 6 BVI spots with a a guide recommended by Sharlene...Captain Deb...and we, who are long time Caribbean Amphibians agreed it was the best snorkeling we've ever done anywhere in the Caribbean...from Hawk Billed Turtles to Nurse Sharks to phenomenal coral and millions of every manner and size of tropical reef fish.

We travelled all over the BVI...from the top of Sage Mountain to the Baths and Devils Bay in VG, which was all superb...but were always happiest to come back the sit under a Sea Grape Tree on the beach or on our well covered porch during a tropical rainstorm, which never seem to last that long.

Like I said, the cottage comes with everything you need and Riteway in Road Town is pretty well stocked and there is is their wholesale/bulk outlet next door for caseloads of important things like Coco Lopez, Rum, Orange Juice, Pineapple Juice and Nutmeg.

You need a car and at first look, Tortola's roads are daunting....suggest a 4-wheel drive if you want to do Brewer's Bay...a must....but the driver's are very polite and you soon learn the protocols. Cottage WiFi is highly reliable and multi-channelled, and if the power goes out...this is the Caribbean...the generator kicks in....but when in doubt Sam and Sharlene were their with suggestions and solutions.

Hate to be going back to our beautiful Gulf Coast beaches, but it starts the clock to come back to Cane Garden Bay Cottage ...IRIE!

Owner's Response: We are pleased Michael is so enthusiastic about his recent stay at The Cottages. We strive to be the most comfortable place in Cane Garden Bay, and the best value. Samantha, JC and staff work hard to make sure that every guests' stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Michael captures the ambiance and the character of the Bay remarkably well in his review. It is a beautiful place, with wonderful people. And when you stay with us at The Cottages, you are part of the community. Having had a wonderful 25 year relationship with Cane Garden Bay, one tends to take the spectacular scenery and the gentle nature of the population for granted. It is great to hear Michael's impression of what we hope is his first of many visits to Tortola. We are proud The Cottages played a part in that positive experience. Craig Corser

Beautiful Setting on Cane Garden Bay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 3 nights in Cottage #3 in January of 2016, it was beautiful, clean, comfortable, and private! I loved the setting, and close to everything I was looking for! The beach was beautiful, and having access to a cooler and sand chairs made it easy to spend the day at the beach. There is a local store close by for certain things you might need. I did not cook, but the kitchen was equipped for doing so. The only thing I would complain about is the mosquitoes, but that just comes with the tropical setting. Would definitely stay there again!!!

Owner's Response: We are very concerned about mosquitoes at The Cottages. We spray the back part of the property for mosquitoes from time to time during the rainy season. We have excellent screens and keep them in good condition. We provide insect repellent and a mosquito zapper for our guests' convenience. Unfortunately, if the front doors are not kept closed, mosquitoes may enter the Cottage. We will review our information package to ensure we are providing guests with suggestions on how to guard against mosquitoes.
