Wake up to the sound of birds softly chirping, harmonising with the gentle waves as they kiss the white sandy shores, and the calm breeze travelling between the leaves of coconut palm trees.
As the morning light illuminates the cottage, touching each window one by one, you change into your swim suit, walk out the door, and within steps take a refreshing dip in the Caribbean Sea – the Territory’s most magnificent swimming pool. Treasure your beachside vacation in the Cane Garden Bay Cottages proudly presented by Villas of Tortola,
Tucked away in an exotic setting in Cane Garden Bay behind an array of calabash, banana, coconut and almond trees, and fuchsia hibiscus flowers are two charming cottages, easily distinguished by their classical Caribbean colours of lemon and marigold with white and turquoise gingerbread trim.
Both of the island-inspired houses contain two one-bedroom apartments for two guests, with the option to join cottages 3 and 4 and pull-out sofas in cottages 1 and 2.
These affordable vacation accommodations were designed for travellers wanting to maximise their time by the ocean. Its location is within steps to the beach, and two minutes to the main entertainment strip of Cane, allowing guests to come and go as they please throughout the day and night. Frequently utilised by passionate sailors, the beachside retreat is a great place to spend a few days on land when taking a break from sailing.
Renting a vehicle is not necessary during your stay, as the traditional beach village features all the necessary amenities for a comfortable and soothing vacation. The shore is lined with beach bars, restaurants, live music, and nightly entertainment suiting a variety of cuisine and musical preferences. There are also provisioning stores, a laundromat, gas station, churches, and several service businesses within the Cane community.
The Cane Garden Bay Cottages are in good proximity to the centre of the action, and sufficient distance for peace and privacy. Time spent at the property can be shared with others, as the expansive grounds not only provide ample shade, but also a prime space to entertain. Guests can pull out a folding lawn chair and sit out on the grass, or under the picnic pavilion with two tables and a charcoal grill, perfect for cocktails or a delicious island barbecue. Personal relaxation can be spent here sunbathing on the lawn, or snoozing in the hammock in the shade between two coconut palms.
Inside, the cottages are equipped with Wi-Fi, iPod docks, and a cell phone with a complimentary $5 credit for your use. The large double doors open to a living area, furnished with wicker beach-style furniture and decorative sea-side ornaments.
A full-service kitchenette boasting the amenities to fulfil any culinary requests, make home cooking an option when retreating from the lively ambiance of the areas’ dining establishments.
Indoor dining can be enjoyed on the glass table in the adjoining solarium with large, screened windows offering prime visibility out to the garden. Alternatively, meals, drinks, or morning coffee can be served on the patio tables on each cottage’s private wrap-around porch.
Separate from the living area, the bedrooms contain cosy queen-sized beds dressed with soft blue linens, and both air conditioning and ceiling fans to ensure you keep cool. The ensuite bathrooms thoughtfully offer hairdryers and travel-size toiletries to use during your stay.
The Cane Garden Bay Cottages are a budget-friendly option for visitors who come to visit the British Virgin Islands’ most popular beach and entertainment district.
