Absolute Great Villa!!
Alfresco villa in Tortolla was absolutely beautiful!!! The view is outstanding and we enjoyed stunning sun rises and sun downs sometimes. The four of us (2 couples) all lives stressful lives and we were simply looking forward to beautiful solitude which we found in Alfresco. We stayed at the villa most of time reading in the sun, enjoying the views, napping, and being in the pool. The kitchen was perfect and we cooked in most nights and dined out several. We slept most nights in large bedrooms with the windows opened falling asleep listening to the ocean which was very peaceful. We would highly recommend this villa!!

My family of 6 recently spent 10 days at Alfresco and it was an amazing vacation! The location on the West End is the perfect place for peace and quiet but also very close to so many beaches and restaurants. Sam and JC were a huge help as we planned days trips and other activities. They even put up a Christmas tree for our family! We highly recommend this beautiful property! It is an adventure to drive to but that added a lot of fun and laughs in our family. We will be back!

Return trip was just as fabulous as the first time!!!!!!
Our second visit to Alfresco and we loved it so much last time we brought friends this time. They had an equally fantastic impression and experience. Allison and Sam were wonderful again, every detail catered to. They were wonderful with suggestions on activities and car rentals; everything was seemless. The location is wonderful, so peaceful and quiet but close to activity and ferry's when we wanted to venture out. The men had the tough job of running down the hill and grabbing some wraps for lunch, while the ladies waited for the delivery basking in the sun at the pool. Pretty rough life, wish we could have stayed longer. Snorkeling great in Smuggler's Cove, ferry close for our day trip to JVD, day on Virgin Gorda was wonderful. Heck, writing this review is hard sitting back in Kansas City......really wish I was back on the pool deck taking in the views!!! Thanks again Allison and Sam for all you did to make the stay what it was. See you next year (or sooner if we become independently wealthy and I don't have to work anymore!!! Ha.)

We highly recommend vacationing at Villa Alfresco! We travelled as a family of five - 2 adults and 3 teenagers and found the house the perfect setup to give everyone the space that they needed. Location was great. Easy access to ferries for day trips to Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke made for truly exciting excursions. Dealt with Allison and Sharlene regarding all of the details and was very pleased with their attention to detail and timely responses to any questions. I would not hesitate to stay again!

Week in Paradise
Alfresco is a fabulous villa. We stayed last week with our grown children and had an amazing week. I was first attracted to this villa because of the view which is gorgeous. After researching a little more about Tortola I decided that Alfresco would fit our needs perfectly. It is located in the West End which is convenient to Soapers Hole Marina and a 45 minute ferry ride from Charlotte -Amalie. The managers, Sam and Sharlene, made everything very seamless. Sharlene and Jerry, the rental car owner, met us and immediately we were on our way to the villa. We loved every aspect of the villa. The villa is well appointed ranging from the kitchen to the pool towels and noodles. Tortola is beautiful. We snorkeled at Smuggler's Cove and Brewer's Bay, hiked Sage Mountain, guys went fishing, and we all had a day snorkel trip with Island Surf and Sail. The restaurants were delicious...Bananakeet Cafe, Tropical Fusion, dCoal Pot, Sugar Mill, Fish and Lime Inn. Sharlene and Sam's recommendations were on target. We were very spoiled by the spectacular sunsets...not sure if we can ever find another accommodation that offers as much as Alfresco. We will be back! PS We had our little night watchman...every night outside the master a chickenhawk would roost under the eaves. It was such a treat to see him there every evening!

Paradise is Villa Alfresco
My husband and I have been to Tortola a number of times and have always had a great time. Yet, this visit was perfect; we enjoyed every minute of our week at the villa. Overlooking views from every angle of the hillside villa were awesome. Sunsets were beautiful, Villa landscaping was immaculate. Very comfortable bedrooms/baths with choice of open air and/or air con. The owners have thought of everything to make the stay memorable. Thank you for sharing your dream with us.

"Amazing time at Villa Alfresco"
Alfresco is amazing. The pictures don't do it justice. We loved our home away from home. The architecture was spectacular, the views fantastic, gardens beautiful and we just couldn't seem to get out of the infinity pool. The layout provides beautiful common areas, while the bedrooms provided privacy. It was conveniently located to fantastic beaches like Smuggler's Cove and Cane Garden Bay. We appreciated all of the assistance the owners provided in securing airfare and our rental car. We would recommend flying into St. Thomas and taking the ferry to the West End. It was a beautiful way to begin our vacation.

“Alfresco- Stunning Luxury Villa With Amazing Views” ★
This villa has spectacular views and very comfortable accommodations. Tortola has perfect weather, beautiful beaches and lovely people. The roads and driving on the left take some getting used to. The caretakers were very nice and helpful. Allison the owner was awesome.

“Incredible home, fantastic views, perfect vacation!!”
Our incredible BVI's vacation at Alfresco started with the owner, Allison. Allison was amazing to work with, providing us vacation information even before we booked the home. She helped me find a much cheaper airfare to get to BVI, and once booked, she hooked me up with a rental car agency (Jerrys-highly recommended), sailing recommendation (we used Kuralu recommended from a friend of our and it was awesome)and dive shop recommendation (Blue Water Divers-highly recommended). Before we arrived, we received a list of restaurant recommendations, and a list of stores to secure provisions, including Riteway, who delivered our pre-ordered groceries to the house prior to our arrival.
The home could be difficult to find on your own, so Kia, Alfresco's caretaker, had us follow her to the house. The drive can be scary the first time or two as it is quite steep and curvy, but once you get the hang of it, its a breeze.
Upon arrival at the home, we were all totally amazed. The pictures online are beautiful, but you can't create the beauty of this home and view in pictures. It is simply breathtaking the first time you stand on the pool deck and look out towards Jost Van Dyke. The first sunset there is even more incredible. The house was perfect for 6 of us, including my wife, 2 teen daughters and their 2 friends. The 3 bedrooms rooms are decorated very nicely, and the beds are super comfortable. The shower in the master is awesome! There is AC in each bedroom, but not in the other living spaces, although we did not find the need for it. There was a breeze the entire time we were there. The kitchen was very well equipped for all of our needs, with very nice appliances if you want to do your own cooking. We ate breakfast in most days, and everything worked perfectly. We decided to buy some fresh lobster one day in Nanny Cay Marina (ask for Boss-live lobster!) and grilled on the deck. The BBQ worked great. We didn't watch much tv as there was just too much to do there, but the living room is very comfortable, with Directv, a nice stereo, and tons of books to read.
The patio was our favorite part of the house. The pool is spectacular, with an "infinity" edge appearance, sitting on the edge of the mountain, overlooking Jost. It is simply awesome. We spent a whole lot of time in the pool, including late into the night, with the disco lights blasting!
I HIGHLY recommend Alfresco and we can't wait to go back!!!
Michael - 20 June 2015
Where do I begin? The description doesn't do this villa justice. It was even more amazing than described -- hard to believe but it's true. Our sons in their 20's have relocated due to their jobs but we make it a point every year to be together for a week. The laughs around the pool have created memories that will be forever imprinted in our brains. The scuba diving, snorkeling, boating, and fishing were fantastic. Allison's recommendations were spot on. Thanks so much for everything!

“Beautiful Property with Stunning Views”
“The property was perfect. It had everything that we could possibly need. It is a well thought out rental and made our stay both easy and relaxing.
The views were picture perfect. We enjoyed the ocean breeze and felt safe and secure throughout the trip.
Our location was perfect with easy access to beaches, restaurants, shops and ferries’
Favorite activity: “Our favorite activity was relaxing at the pool on the rental property.”
Erica (departure: Apr 11, 2015)
Alfresco is awesome! We have been going to the outer islands in the Bahamas for the past few years and once we arrived at Alfresco we all looked at each other and said "why have we not been coming here all along!" We had an amazing time in Tortola and at Alfresco.
This is house was just perfect for us -2 adults and 3 boys (14, 11,& 9). We all enjoyed the pool from the time we woke up to late in the evenings- the pool lights are so fun! We enjoyed exploring the island during the mornings and then venturing back home in the afternoons to relax by the pool and enjoy the sunsets and views.
My kids never wanted to leave the house! We enjoyed all the wonderful restaurants, took some great day trips, and explored the beautiful islands- we can't wait to come back! The best Family vacation we have had!

Once was great but twice was nicer
Date of Stay January 25, 2015
This was our second 2 week stay at the amazing villa Alfresco. From the extraordinary views at sun up, sun down or anything in between to the exquisitely decorated bedrooms, this villa is a hidden gem. We enjoyed coffee by the pool, lunch overlooking the bay and cocktails by the pool. On some days we ventured to the close by secluded beaches or over the mountains to Cane Garden Bay. All days were paradise. Sam and JP are wonderfully helpful in all aspects as managers. They recommended new restaurants and we enjoyed their suggestions. And they are very conscientious and thoughtful in wanting us to have a superior adventure. We look forward to returning for visit number 3 in 2016

"Alfresco is an absolute gem of a villa"
Alfresco is an absolute gem of a villa. Tucked away in the lush hills overlooking the roaring surf of Long Bay, it affords a spectacular view of the Caribbean ocean and nearby islands. My wife and I, along with my sister-in-law and mother-in-law, spent a very comfortable and relaxing week at Alfresco during the week of Christmas and enjoyed everything about the place. It is a well-kept, roomy and beautifully laid out villa with lots of separate spaces to enjoy the sunny weather. Constant sea breezes cool the place so that we didn’t need to use the air-conditioning once, even though the ambient temperature hovered in the mid-80’s F. The villa has all the amenities—a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, and lovely pool. It is a five minute drive from spectacular beaches and good restaurants. The vista from the large covered patio off of the master-bedroom is breath-taking. The property managers were helpful and courteous. My wife and I have been to Tortola over a dozen times but this is the nicest location we’ve stayed at yet. --Very highly recommended.

"We would love to come back to the Alfresco"
“The Alfresco villa was incredible! The vacation villa was amazing. We would love to come back to the Alfresco villa next year.”
- Lynne (departure December 20, 2014) – 6 guests
“Alfresco was amazing”
My husband, me and 2 other couples rented Alfresco for a week and it was everything the pictures and reviews said it would be! The home is beautiful with private rooms for each couple and the views are incredible! The owners and property managers were there for us to answer questions, provide recommendations on restaurants and excursions which made it very personalized for us. This was our first time visiting BVI and renting Alfresco was one of the best decisions we've made. We've traveled a great DEAL around the Caribbean and this was top notch! Highly recommend using Dolphin Water Taxi to come from St. Thomas...they made it easy and fun. We also took 2 day trips with Island Surf and Sail and had our own captain on a motor boat. This gave us a chance to really see the islands in style. This was one of the best vacations we've had and Alfresco was a wonderful place to come home to each night to relax, take in the views and enjoy! Cheers!

“A definite return”
We came to celebrate our daughter's "Sweet 16" birthday. She wanted a family vacation with her Grandparents to remember such a significant birthday. The location of the Villa exceeded our expectations. The virtual tour does not give the views or the Villa justice. The comfort of home, the views were spectacular, the ability to eat at home and enjoy the stars and take a dip with the perfect lighting. So many beaches to travel to near and far. A definite return for our family.
JB Southampton, NJ, USA - 17 April 2014
I have been meaning to drop you a note to let you know what a terrific time we had at Alfresco! It was truly perfect for all of us, a wonderful way to get away with our children before they all head off on their own. Alfresco is perfectly designed for the environment and everything we needed was at our fingertips.
While we did notice changes around the island since we were last there, the feel of Tortola remains unchanged.
So…thank you for the use of your beautiful home and thank you for all of your upfront advice. We couldn’t have had a better vacation!
We can’t wait to get back – hopefully in less than 24 years!
Cheers, Lee - 2 June 2014
So much more to enjoy when you visit this island!
Just so you don't think this will be yet another review extoling the obvious virtues of this simply divine property (all of which is true!) there is so much more to enjoy when you visit this island! First and foremost, my husband and I have traveled to Tortola on many occasions in the past but they have all been on sailboats we chartered ourselves. As a result, we spent scant amounts of time in small seaside towns and didn't have the opportunity to travel inland. This time, because of the location of this simply gorgeous villa, we had need for a car. Of all the islands we have visited in our Caribbean travels (over the past 20 years) Tortola possibly has the most kind and friendly locals imaginable. (with the possible exception of Antigua and Anguilla) If you travel to this island and are fortunate enough to stay at this villa, in this location, be sure to eat at all of the nearby locally owned restaurants, you will not be disappointed! One other word of advice, do make sure, if you visit in early April, to bring insect repellant. Kudos to Allison for being a gracious hostess -- long may your Villa Alfresco flag wave! Debs

'Alfresco' is a beautiful brand new private villa, set high on a hillside with the most stunning sea view, overlooking the nearby island of Jost van Dyke, but the written description doesn't do justice to the view before you, across the ever-changing colour of the sea. Reading a book here takes quite a while, because you're constantly laying it down to check on the view! And there is always something to look at out there - whether a group of yachts sailing by, or maybe a five-masted schooner on a luxury cruise.
The accommodation and furnishings have had careful attention to detail to ensure that your stay is extremely relaxing and comfortable. There is a feeling of grace and space that surrounds you throughout the house and on the deck. There is ample seating indoors and outside, and the pool is always very tempting. If you absolutely have to check with the office, then the provision of WiFi in the house makes that very easy too! The bedrooms have full airconditioning, but except in very warm weather the ceiling fans and a screened open window are usually sufficient to allow you to fall asleep to the background sound of gentle waves upon the shore, and enjoy the perfect end to another day in Paradise!

We've returned to Alfresco with friends for a second visit.
This is a beautiful private villa with secluded & stunning views out over long bay. It is true the pictures do not do it justice. All the bedrooms & bathrooms are well laid out & luxurious with everything you could possibly want. We spent many hours lazying in the infinity pool with cocktails in hand just chilling out & admiring the view. Sheer bliss! It was paradise on earth!
Alfresco had everything we needed, but when we wanted to eat out, there were many restaurants & bars serving local delicacies & exotic drinks. Tortola has many lovely sun kissed beaches & there are also other islands to explore if you wish. We would highly recommend this villa & will be returning again soon.

This is a gem of a place that was accurately described and everything we were looking for. This place is bran new and immaculate. The owners were extremely helpful with all of our questions and expectations. Alfresco is very private and gave us the seclusion we were looking for. The views from the property are outstanding. It is very well located and did not take us to long to go to the beach or nearby restaurants. There are many good places to eat nearby and the beach was powder white sand. This is a special place. You will not go wrong to stay at this wonderful place!! We would love to come back soon.

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Tortola to celebrate a 60th birthday.
Alfresco does what it says on the tin. It's a wonderful retreat with lots of glorious corners and areas outside for eating, drinking, swimming, reading, dozing or just chilling.
The view from the warm infinity pool seems to stretch to the horizon. Whether you're just bobbing around with cocktail in hand or completing a few lengths in the pool, and getting in presents no problem at all.
An elevated position affords Alfresco a wonderful view of Long Beach, a wide sea-scape and the outline of other British Virgin islands just waiting to be explored.
The master bedroom commands wonderful ocean views and has every luxury and indulgence you can only dream of, including a massive bed and a walk-in shower to die for. The other two bedrooms are just as luxurious and as well appointed.
The island of Tortola is strewn with excellent restaurants, all serving good local dishes and of course, excellent Caribbean cocktails!

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Tortola. We stayed at Alfresco which is a new villa. We were met at the airport by Sam the villa manager and escorted to Alfresco. The house is beautiful with everything thought of. From the deck the views are simply amazing. This was the ideal holiday home to spend with family. There were different places to relax but a very large deck where you can spend time as a family. The kitchen had everything you need but to be honest we ate out every evening but did manage to use the barbeque at lunchtime. Long Bay Beach is simply stunning, it was never busy, no vendors and the sand is just as you would expect in the Caribbean to be with the clearest water. A truly memorable vacation we will definitely return to Alfresco when we can. Many thanks.

Our family just returned home from our week long stay in the villa Alfresco located above Long Bay on the beautiful island of Tortola. We have been to Tortola a number of times now and will definitely be returning again to Alfresco. This home is so tastefully and comfortably furnished, the views are simply spectacular, perfectly located within minutes of the best beaches and a variety of dining options. The home is immaculate, the pool and outdoor living areas are ideal for spending time while enjoying ocean views and fresh breezes. Far and away the best home we have ever stayed in on Tortola!

Stayed at Alfresco in February for our 20th Anniversary, had a wonderful time lazing by the pool.The villa is beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice. The pool lights are fascinating, watching them change colour. Tortola was such a lovely island and we are planning to return to alfresco with friends in September. Thanks again for a memoarable stay.

Pleased you enjoyed the pool lighting, they add a really lovely atmosphere in the evening as you know, hope you enjoyed the sunsets from Alfresco. We look forward to welcoming you back in September and thank you for a further booking this year.
