“Great house with a relentlessly captivating vista!”

We had 8 people staying at Limin' House and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Tortola's West End. The house itself is beautiful made and appointed with the sort of high end touches that make it feel like home..outdoor showers off of 2 of the rooms, the gardens, the pool, ample space for yoga, hammocks, the margarita aka pain killer machine, robes, blankets, mosquito nets, a Viking stove, and gorgeous grill, nice furnishings, dish ware (glassware was the notable exception) and cookware. The manager, Debs was completely available to orient us and help when we had an question. The housekeeper, the pool service, the owner, Susan McDavit - all were wonderfully responsible and responsive. We all fell in love with Debs' new baby, Riley - that was a bonus of r our baby-loving group. The sound system is great with speakers on individual controls throughout the main floor and we loved Susan's CD collection especially "Mellow" and "Songs for strong women"... we had a great all girl dance party to that CD one evening.
There are a few things to know when you book this lovely house.
My 90 year old mother was with us and while we were able to put her into a first floor room to make it easy for her to move about house, the shower in that room has no grab bars or anything to hold onto...making the house not well matched to the the needs of a slightly wobbly 90 year old. I thought I had asked enough questions about this and described our special needs well enough but I must not have. We all pitched in and my mother loved the house but I would not describe this as a property particularly well suited to the needs of a person with mobility issues or a frail elderly person. Other than the first/main floor of the house, it is really not accessible.
The West End of Tortola, particularly the area round Soper's Hole which Limin' House overlooks, has an abundance of dogs, chickens and roosters. I imagine when you get accustomed to them, their various sounds fade into the background but several of our guests found their sleep interrupted by the ongoing cacophony in the area.
The AT&T customers in the group even had non roaming At&T service and free wifi at the house!
The 4 bedrooms are all very nicely appointed and each has their own charm but the Master and the guest wing are clearly the deluxe suites.
We had one incident involving a small plumbing disaster in the garden suite - Debs and the plumber were quick to address it but as it goes in the islands and even at home, even when you make your best effort, the repair process can take a day or two. It did and to my astonishment the inconvenienced guests were offered and incredibly generous refund on their payment. We didn't even complain very loudly and we all found this an impressive level of responsiveness.
You will certainly want a car and we had a great experience with Jerry's Car Rental - recommended by Susan. Nice car at a very reasonable rate. We took a day sail on Kuralu and went snorkeling off of Norman Island...that too was a good recommendation from Susan (the owner). There is only one restaurant on Soper's Hole right now...Pusser's but there are lots of other places to drive to where you can get a great meal. The Smith Ferry line that serves the West End & Charlotte Amalie without notice changed their ferry schedule causing one of our departing guests to have to rebook her flight since the next ferry would get her there too late. Just a word to the wise...confirm in person all ferry schedules.

Thank you so much for that extensive, candid review.So SORRY that I didn't understand your Mom's needs. I thought that once up the front stairs, which I described, that all would be accessible for her,with just the one small step down to the dining patio. With that said, I will say it is not handicap accessible.
Glad you enjoyed my CD's! Perfect for a "woman's" night dance off!
Ah, the roosters, etc...not much to be done with them...for me, they have become synonymous to "I am back in Tortola!" ..a down home charm hard to find in the U.S. anymore! With the bedroom windows and doors closed and the AC on, I don't believe you can hear them, except if you have supersonic ears..so that would be my suggestion to those who are sensitive to sounds. Although, I love hearing the tree frogs, crickets, etc. at night ...but we are all different!
New glasses are on the way. It is so hard to purchase quality on Tortola and shipping takes forever, but we do try to keep on top of our supplies! There is also the Clubhouse Restaurant on Frenchman's Cay, I hope! Still there? THE place to go for Sunday brunch. You go left over the bridge, instead of right to Pussers. Thanks again for the review and hope to see you there again! All the best to you and your family!

“Perfect for family get away”
Reviewed 1 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

You can’t go wrong with the Limin house! We recently rented the house for a week for our extended family vacation – 6 adults, 4 children. We have vacationed together around the world and we all agreed that the Limin house is the best house we have ever rented. It is a very open, spacious floor plan, which allows for privacy when you want it, but a great open living area. The house is stocked with everything you could possibly need. The pool and the view are the absolute best. The location on Tortola is perfect as well. Lastly, the staff supporting the house were delightful to work with – whenever we had a question or a request, we had immediate attention and action. Book a vacation to the Limin house – you won’t be disappointed!

“Simply Stunning”
Reviewed 13 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

Wow. What can we say, except this villa exceeded our expectations in every area. Beautiful open floorplan with expansive views of Soper's Hole and surrounding islands. Sunsets are spectacular.

The home has high end finishes, yet feels very homey and comfortable. There are 4 private bedrooms with ceiling fans and air conditioning and each bedroom has its own bath and balcony or patio. Additionally there are 2 outdoor showers, a beautiful pool on the cliff, a pool bar equipped with blender, icemaker and refrigerator, 2 living areas, well appointed kitchen and washer/dryer.

The floorplan of the house would make it an excellent place for family vacations, several couples, or even a small wedding!

Prior to our arrival, we were provided with a helpful packet of information including directions on how to get to the villas as well as things to do and see on Tortola.

Our experience at the Limin' House was wonderful and we can't wait to return someday and spend more time "Limin"!
