“Beautiful Villa at the top of a hill”
Reviewed November 23, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed here for a long weekend getaway to the BVIs. The house was gorgeous and the views are simply stunning. The house itself was well-equipped and very clean. The master bathroom is particularly nice with the semi-outdoor feel. The pool was very nice after a long hot day running around the island. Lynn the property manager was extremely responsive and led the way to the house from the ferry dock which was very helpful (I'm not sure I'd have found it just using Google maps). The part about the steep, winding roads is no joke! 4x4 is a must to get to the place, and prepare for a bone-rattling ride up some very sketchy roads - but hey, that's Tortola. One thing to note is that the upstairs bedroom is accessed via a narrow spiral staircase - very cool, but might pose a problem to someone with mobility issues. Overall the stay was exceptional. I would love to stay here again the next time I'm on the islands.

“Outstanding!”

Yes, that is exactly what it was. The entire stay at Pelican Peak was outstanding in every way!
My husband, son and myself spent a week at Willem and Reineke's beautiful and very comfortable villa. Lynn the property manager and Madeline the housekeeper (both so very welcoming) completed the team to ensure we had everything we needed. The communication with Willem & Reineke from booking through to the day we checked out was flawless.

Now for the property. Yes you will need a 4 wheel drive to get up to the villa. Consider it an adventure. Don't worry, you'll drive like a pro after you've been up and down a couple of times! When walking through the villa's door for the first time you are immediately drawn out to the decks and pool area with this massive and incredible view. I remember thinking, O.K. this is going to be awesome and it was every single day! Willem & Reineke's recommendations for things see and do were all very helpful. We even arranged for Evelyn who owns the D”CoalPot restaurant at the bottom of the hill to come up to the villa and prepare a birthday dinner for our son. She's great fun and a fabulous chef! We had many favorites at the villa - coffee and breakfast out on one of the decks in the morning watching the waves roll in and the boats motoring or sailing around. Then there was the pool which was wonderful to cool off in. Since we like to cook, most evenings we had a fine meal accompanied by an adult beverage or two again outside watching the spectacular sunsets.

For off property fun activities, the boys had a great day of bone fishing around Anegada. Of course there are many white sand beaches! We also chartered a boat with Captain Debs to take us around several close by islands for a full day of snorkeling. The fish, the coral and a very knowledgeable captain made for yet another wonderful day.

The thing we liked least was the day we had to leave. You always know it has been a great vacation when you find yourself saying "just one more day"!

“Your first thought will be "WoW, better then the pictures posted"!”
Reviewed September 6, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

So like everyone else we don't have a negative thing to say. 100% perfect!
We really enjoyed our stay here!
The pictures really don't capture the views this place has to offer. With that said here are a couple helpful things for future guests.
The house has everything! I mean everything. The cooler and beach chairs are great to through in your Jeep and spend the day at the Beach with. (smugglers Cove has great snorkeling) The house had binoculars, a telescope ( which is great to use with all the lights off at night ) books galore , games, every kind of pot and pan including a drip coffee maker (with filters) and coffee press. Alot of past guests like to contribute and leave things behind that are useful for others, plenty of cooking spices, sunscreen and bug spray (even though the bugs weren't a problem for us) were available if we needed them. Even a few bottles of liquor. (Tip) stop by Sebastians Bar and buy a bottle of their homemade spiced rum. It's the best we've ever had and they only sell it at their bar.
You really feel at home here after a busy day. The Bose speaker system was nice to stream music through from our phones at night and the internet worked well.
Another Tip .... Take the ride into Roadtown for Groceries at the big supermarkets. The small ones and one at Sopers Hole just didn't have things like cold cuts for sandwiches and the variety of fruits and veggies that make life easier.
If your like us it's the small details that matter and with this house we were happily surprised how everything was though of. It really made our trip.
Well definitely be coming back!

Just got back from an 8 day stay at the Pelican Peak. Wife & I were celebrating our 25th anniversary. Everything was great! Communication with the owner (Willem) & the property manager (Lynn) was excellent & they were so helpful.
We rented a jeep for the week & I highly recommend that. For us, it was a 6 minute trip up the hill from Ben's market & 6 minutes down the hill.
We cooked in the kitchen almost every night & had a great time doing that.
We connected my smartphone via Google Music to their Bose Bluetooth speaker & enjoyed great music while we were in the pool or cooking. I used the grill a couple of nights & that went really well.
We watched movies using their Netflix account most nights.
We stayed busy island hopping & beach hopping thru most days & then enjoyed the privacy of the house in the evenings.
The outdoor shower was super awesome! Something about a hot shower with that breeze off the ocean.... Plus the view! The view(s) are simply incredible! We enjoyed most of our meals on the veranda looking out toward Jost Van Dyke.
After spending loads of time looking at lots of properties & actually contacting about half a dozen of them, we were extremely pleased with our choice.

We enjoyed our stay at Pelican Peak. The view was fantastic and we spent most of our time on the porch where we could eat and socialize and enjoy the view. All the necessities were there including beach chairs and beach towels. The kitchen was well stocked. lLynn, the manager , was very helpful and patient with all our questions. It was very relaxing and many local restaurants nearby.

The long drive up the hill is worth the time when you arrive. Enjoyed our cups of coffee in the

morning watching the island wake up with occasional rain showers and many rainbows. No
Appliances missing and everything in good working.

Lynn the property manager was a great help in answering questions, giving directions and fun to be around.
