Glad we chose Alfresco
Alfresco turned out to be great choice for us. Sometimes when you travel somewhere for the first time you look around and decide on the next trip you would make some different choices. This was not the case for us. This house was the right house in the right location. There is not better area of Tortola to be in, in my opionion. The house was awsome in every way. We had three couples and this three bedroom layout was great. The outdoor area and pool were great and the view from those areas and every bedroom and porch off of each were great. Thank you Sharlene for showing us how to get there. We will be back.
The layout of this villa is so well thought out. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!
Blue Horizon was a lovely place to stay. The view is wonderful and hearing the crashing waves was lovely at night. All bedrooms had air conditioning but there was a lovely breeze that came straight on at the house so windows being open at night kept us cool enough.
The kitchen was well stocked. The one time we needed something the management company were very quick to respond and brought the items to us.
Furniture was comfy - esp the master bed. Plenty of TV channels to choose from and wifi was efficient.
The road driving up to the house was one of the more easily managed on island and proximity to smugglers was great. Go check out Nigel at smugglers! He makes all his food fresh and it was wonderful and always served with a smile.
Will definitely stay at Blue Horizon again!
Beautiful, comfortable, relaxing!
We greatly enjoyed our vacation at Blue Horizon. The villa sits high above Long Bay Beach, -- one of the most beautiful places in the world -- and therefore has a phenomenal view of the entire beach. Also, the place is very secluded and quiet. Very private. All three bedrooms have AC which makes sleep at night very comfortable. The house wraps beautifully around a swimming pool and has sweeping balcony. The area around the pool always has some shade, which is very important in the tropics. Also, the pool area has a lot of beautiful potted plants. The outdoor grill made our dinners very easy and fun. Very comfortable for 3 couples or a large family. Tortola is the most relaxing vacation possible.
With a year round climate, the 36 islands in the BVI have something special to offer you. They’re known as “Natures Little Secrets” & they certainly live up to this!
Tortola offers a great ‘bolt hole’ for exploring the islands either by boat or ferry. There is an abundance of snorkelling, dive sites to enjoy during your stay.
Tortola has an “unhurried pace of life” & will allow you to relax, take pleasure in taking time out from a very busy schedule or enjoy a welcomed family vacation. Islanders are very ‘laid back’! They just take each day as it comes, no rush to do anything, “Island Time” is what you will find. You’ll not find Tortola heavily populated, with around 28,000 residents living in the BVI.
The Amerindians from South America came to the Windward & Leeward Islands in 900BC & stayed in the area over 1,000 years. Christopher Columbus in 1493 arrived on the islands during his travels, they were subsequently left for over 100 years whilst he sailed to Puerto Rico to find his fame & fortune.
During the 17th and 18th century, pirates arrived in the BVI to hoard their treasures & continue their quest as ‘Pirates at Sea’. In the 17th century the Europeans arrived, the Spanish in Virgin Gorda and Dutch in Tortola. Over the next century the British, Spanish, French & Dutch all wanted control of the BVI.
When the British took control of the islands they built plantations to grow sugar & cotton for export. After the emancipation of slavery in 1834 & a severe hurricane hitting the BVI, plantations fell by the wayside. The former slaves turned the land into farm land & started fishing for their living. Tourist started to arrive in the BVI when Laurence Rockefeller built ‘Little Dix Bay’ on Virgin Gorda, the airport at Beef Island was then opened in 1968 & the islands started to become the yachting industry it is today.
Road Town is the capital and U.S. Dollar is the local currency. The islands lie east of Puerto Rico and adjacent to the U.S. Virgin Islands. They’re essentially mountainous with white sand beaches rising up to 1,780 feet at ‘Mount Sage’ at the high point.
Lots of pictures, places to visit & restaurants to enjoy, take a look on my website.
