After our bareboat sailing week in BVI, we decided to stay a week longer on Tortola. Having been to 18 other Caribbean Islands over the years, this was our first visit to Tortola. Mongoose Apartments turned out to be a very good choice. We stayed in #8 which is very modern, very clean, very well appointed and its veranda on the second story offers complete privacy overlooking a tropical garden of mango, banana and bread fruit trees. Cane Garden Bay beach is a short walk away and the beach is very nice. Guests can relax on the owners' fenced in garden which is right on the beach. Lounge chairs, floats, and kayaks are provided free of charge. A very big plus was that about five restaurants, a small supermarket and a coin operated laundry were all within easy walking distance. Sandra, a Canadian ex-pat, took the time to make us feel right at home.
