My husband and I stayed at the Mongoose Apartments near the end of May 2010. We loved it. The place was very clean and roomy. We loved that we had a full kitchen, so that we could eat some meals in - as the food is pretty pricey in the BVI. Sandra provides everything that you need during your stay and is very friendly and accomodating. Cane Garden Bay beach is about a 2 minute walk from Mongoose Apartments. It is great for snorkeling, kayaking, and swimming. We saw turtles, lots of fish and a shipwreck while snorkeling there. We did rent a car - which I recommend if you want to go check out some of the other awesome beaches. The beaches were never crowded. We loved Brewers Bay, Smugglers Cove and Cane Garden Bay for snorkeling. Long Bay Beach(near Smugglers Cove) had awesome waves, while the other Long Bay Beach near the airport was great for crystal clear blue waters and white sands. Josiah Bay is great for collecting sea shells and watching the waves crash in.
