Your Guide to Tortola Villas

The largest British Virgin Island, Tortola is a perfect mix of tropical living and modern convenience. This balance extends to Tortola villas, which stun with their mix of contemporary amenities and authentic Caribbean style.

Tortola has long been a popular island thanks to its strategic location and natural features. The Arawak and Carib peoples first settled on the island, followed by the Dutch in the 17th Century. This led to the plantation era which continues to influence the style of many Tortola villas today.

By the mid-20th century, construction began on modern villas focused on luxury living. Today, Tortola villas can be found all across the island, offering some of the very best stays in BVI.

Renting a luxury villa in Tortola is easy with Rental Escapes. First, choose your travel dates. Next, choose your party size. From there, your Rental Escapes villa specialist will be happy to present you with the best available Tortola villas for your group. After, your concierge customizes your trip, including transportation, chef service, boat charters, excursions, and more.

Tortola Luxury Villas

Thanks to the island’s central location and its stunning bays and lagoons, Tortola villas make a great base from which to explore the rest of the Virgin Islands.

Top places to rent Tortola villas include Trunk Bay, with its powdery sand and crystal-clear water; the West End, offering great hiking opportunities; and Greenbank Estate near Road Town and Cane Garden Bay.

No matter where you stay, expect the laid-back charm and stunning landscapes that make Tortola such a favourite for seasoned travellers to the Caribbean.

Trunk Bay Villas

One of the most unspoiled parts of Tortola, Trunk Bay stuns thanks to its pristine conditions and exclusivity. Trunk Bay villas balance this delicate relationship with nature while offering some of the most luxurious stays on the island. They include:

Copper Villa Bay: A truly unique rental experience, Copper Villa Bay is set on the secluded Trunk Bay. As you walk into the beautiful atrium, you’re greeted with the breathtaking boulder that acts as the centrepiece of the property. Wander into the master suite, the two additional guest bedrooms, or the Junior Cooper guest house, and the details around every corner will continue to amaze. A great choice for multigenerational groups.

My All: While many properties boast magnificent views, few let you see both the sunrise and the sunset over the sea like My All. These 270-degree views can be appreciated from any of the villa's bedrooms or its three bungalows, each with its own deck and indoor and outdoor shower. Perfect for groups of couples or families travelling together.

Lune: Surrounded by tropical flowers and unique water features, the 3-bedroom Lune is a seriously stylish villa that exudes a sense of contemporary sophistication. Each of the three bedrooms is designed to offer privacy, and it’s just a short walk from Trunk Bay Beach – so much so that you can hear the waves crashing.

West End Tortola Villas

Tortola’s West End is home to some of the most varied and dramatic landscapes on the island. And thanks to their convenient location, West End Tortola villas also make a great jump-off point for island hopping. They include:

Villa Ariana: Nestled in Smuggler’s Cove, this Tuscan-inspired property is just steps away from one of the best beaches in BVI. It features an infinity pool with stunning views over the islands, a fully-featured gourmet kitchen, and a variety of sleeping configurations, including a separate studio. A great option for families.

The Reefs: Designed with love by its architect-owner, The Reefs is a truly unique and private escape. It overlooks Cane Garden Bay, offering sunrise and sunset views. Its design maximizes trade winds, and its sun deck includes a plunge pool and commanding views over the bay. This villa is a true celebration of Caribbean life.

Tortola Beach Villas

Tortola is home to some truly world-class beaches, with soft white sand and warm waves. If you want the sound of those waves to lull you to sleep, then Tortola beach villas are for you. They include:

Outer Banks: Perched above Brewers Bay, Outer Banks evokes that perfect island atmosphere. Each of the five bedrooms has its own veranda to step out onto so you can take in the breathtaking views. The pool is surrounded by a mature tropical garden. There are kayaks and stand-up paddleboards for you to use at the nearby beach. It’s everything you need for a perfect beach vacation.

Villa Soleil: Overlooking the beautiful Trunk Bay Beach, Villa Soleil is equal parts style and sophistication. Each of its 3 bedrooms has a private balcony with beach views, while the verandas and private pool allow guests to come together to appreciate the landscape together. A great choice for couples or families.

Alfresco: Located just above the stunning Long Bay Beach, Alfresco is a new construction that mixes classic West Indian styling and contemporary design. It includes an expansive pool terrace with views over Jost Van Dyk, a stunning mezzanine, a tropical garden, and more. A truly serene experience for up to 7 guests.
