Our vacation at Pelican Peak was one the best we've had so far. The property was in great shape, better than the pictures. Beautiful views and sunset, while relaxing after the beach in the pool! The owners were really easy to contact and helped us plan the trip with all the tips they gave us before our arrival. The property manager Lynn was very helpful, always on call and gave us good tips also. The west end of Tortola is a really nice area to stay given the proximity to soppers hole, ferry to Just Van Dyke (a must),local market, Pusser’s (among other things), Cane Garden bay (incredible beach, nice vibes and beach bars), Long Bay resort, among other really nice beaches and areas. We did a boat charter with Virgin Escape that we definitely recommend, Captain Don took care of us all the way. We stayed at the end of May, nice weather and good water temperature. Definitely will repeat our stay at the best spot in Tortola!
Book this house!! We couldn't have asked for a better home base while exploring the BVI's. The view is spectacular, the home is beautiful, pool is amazing and the experience was so easy. Lynn and Willem answered all our questions in a very timely manner. They have great suggestions on places to go and things to do. We did a day at Vigin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke. I recommend going to all. Each island had it's own unique experience. We spent two days on Tortola exploring all the hidden beaches...must do! The only bad think I could say about the trip were the mosquitoes, but you're in the islands, what do you expect. Bring bug spray. Also, check ferry schedules as they can cancel without notice. Thanks to Willem and Lynn for a great experience in the BVI's!!
House was very nice with a great view and Lynn was very helpful. The road is kind of treacherous, but then again most roads on the island are a bit hairy. The two cats were a nice touch too.
Beautiful views from Pelican Peak northward towards Jost Van Dyke from the deck. Nice sized private pool deep enough for adults, with a kid-friendly design. Villa with guest house ideal for the group to spread out. Spectacular sunsets from the porch - you will want to cook or cater in dinner to make the most of the view. Close to all west-end and north-west beaches on Tortola; Smuggler's Cove is a must-visit. Easy drive to ferry terminal / marina for more remote destinations.
Pelican Peak is situated high above Little Apple Bay near Zion Hill on the serene island of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. The house is well-maintained and well-equipped. The furniture and linens are of high quality and very comfortable. The owners lived in the house full time for many years so it feels very much like a home away from home. The West End of Tortola, where the house is located, is close to some of the best the island has to offer: Soper's Hole;Smuggler's Cove;surfing at Little Apple Bay; the lovely and friendly village of Carrot Bay; D'Coal Pot restaurant and the mile-long Long Bay Beach. This trip was our 15th to Tortola and it was the best yet.
Stayed two weeks in the pelican peak house.
It was a very pleasant stay, my daughters adored it! They had a great time.
The house is very well equipped and has a stunning view.
The owner was very helpful and very professional.
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.
