“THE VIEW”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

My wife and I are repeat visitors to the Lighthouse. We return for three reasons. 1. The "VIEW" from our balcony of beautiful Cane Garden Bay. 2. The "CLEANINESS" and freshness of the property and it's landscaping. 3. The most important reason is the "PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP" exhibited by the owner, Ms.Malcia Rymer Bean, who lives on the premises. She'll treat you like family and lets no room issue go unresolved. We're heading back to the Lighthouse in Nov 2014 for the second time this year. A stay there is a great way to get some land time before or after our sailing vacation. We can hardly wait!

Room Tip: The Lighthouse has 3 levels, the higher the better for unobstructed views, but don't shy away fr...

Malcia was very nice and accomodating. We stayed in the penthouse on the 3rd floor with 3 teenagers. The view was beautiful from our balcony. Quite a steep hill to climb from the street, but it kept us in shape. Someone came in everyday to clean which was wonderful!

Stayed here 10 years ago with wife and teenage son. Returned this year (minus teenage son) for an eight day break. Booked through BVIHolidays.com, Joyce being the expert on these islands. Amazingly, little had changed in ten years in this sleepy little village (one small restaurant, The Sailor's Rest has been added - see separate review).

The Lighthouse Villas are light and spacious with fantastic views out over the bay and you are right at the dingy dock so can watch the comings and goings of the yachties as they come in for provisions and/or dinner. Interiors have older style kitchen units and old style stereos (no iPod docks) but are large and bright with a full length balcony. The big bed is extremely comfortable and the air conditioning is both effective and quiet. It should be noted that there is a short but very steep climb up the hill from the road and a steep staircase to the apartments so we would advise only for the able bodied.

Since the last time, Malcia (the owner) has extended a patio area at the side of the apartments and it's got comfortable seating, a small (plunge) pool and free Wi-Fi (not yet in the rooms). This makes a very pleasant oasis for a seat in the shade. All areas including the apartments are kept immaculately clean and fresh clean towels appear once a day.

Malcia lives on the property and is very knowledgeable and helpful but you have to ask; she won't bother you otherwise.

There are a good few restaurants within five minutes walk and a couple of supermarkets that sell all the essentials (geared to the yachties that sail in every day). The beach is desert island standard, lovely clean white sand and relatively gently sloping, and there's a small wreck at one end for snorkelers. Day visitors arrive from the cruise ships when they are in port but they are usually gone by mid afternoon, and anyway don't stray more than 100 yards from their buses!

There's not much to do during the day but once happy hour comes around there's usually at least one bar/restaurant with live music to listen to while you watch the sunset with a cocktail in your hand.

Room Tip: Top floor has the best view but we were on the second top this year which still has good views but i...

Me and my husband stayed here for our first trip to the BVIs in the top floor penthouse suite. I don't have a single complaint. If you are looking for a full service resort, this is not for you - but don't let that scare you off!! You are in the BVIs - you want to explore anyways! We typically prefer B&B style lodging, so this was a perfect fit. The Suite was huge, clean, fully furnished with a functioning kitchen and the most outstanding view from the balcony for viewing the bay and sunsets. It was also very peaceful and quiet. I've read other complaints about the "hill" walk up to the rooms - it is not bad at all! A short, but steep, incline to get to the inn. It is basically a minute walk to the beach, restaurants and bars. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Unless you are going to be spending a ton of time in your room, the large suite is probably not nece...

My boyfriend and I travelled to Tortolla in April 2013. This was my first big trip anywhere. I was so excited to know we were a min walk to the beach at cane Garden Bay.

Our room was beautiful. Very clean, comfortable and incredible views.

Malcia and her staff are very pleasant and attentive. Love the details the cleaning staff took the time for.

Many great places to eat along the beach and markets close but to pick up food to cook yourself.

We had almost the whole beach to ourselves as no cruise ships came by.

The Lighthouse was a great home base for our visit to beautiful Cane Garden Bay. The views were fantastic and Malcia and her staff were so pleasant and helpful. Since this was our first visit I had lots of questions prior to the trip, and during our stay. We dubbed her the Queen of CCG, as everybody knows her and the Lighthouse. There were constant breezes on the patio by the pool which made that a favorite spot of ours to read and relax, with a good choice of books left by other travelers in our room and the hallway. The in-room kitchen was a nice feature even with so many great restaurants close by. Just as Malcia predicted, we loved watching all the boats come and go from our balcony. The Lighthouse now feels like our home away from home!

Staying at the Lighthouse Villas is such a treat.
The owner, Malcia Rymer has paid great attention to detail.
From the brightly colored flowers to the soft comfy sheets.
The breathtaking views to the paintings by local artists on the walls.
From the fountain by the pool to the inviting lounge furniture.
This place strikes a perfect balance of peaceful and energizing.
It's quiet enough so you can get plenty of relaxation. But, you're also just steps away from restaurants and live music for entertainment.
Once you discover The Lighthouse Villas you'll want to come back year after year.
I love this place!
