Four couples stayed here 3 nights before transitioning to Tortola. The rooms were quite comfortable with a nice view of the harbor. All of the amenities we expected were there plus personally prepared breakfasts that were different each morning a were in character with the island. The walk to town is a very pleasant down hill but some quests may...

Jessica & Mark continue to offer the same great value and accommodations Pam & Matt did for many years. This was our third and forth stay at this lovely B&B. We love the location - close enough to walk to town but far enough away so you don't hear the noise from the busy harbour . The view from the...

Enjoyable stay in this small (four-bedroom) B&B. The owners had changed between the time we made the reservation and stayed with them but the new owners very charming and helpful. We’re confident they will have a long and successful operation. Rooms 1 &2 share a balcony overlooking the city and the harbor— a great spot for a night cap or...

Gemutlichkeit is a German word with no real English translation - loosely meaning warm, friendly, cozy, cheerfulness...which describes this quaint B&B to a tee. We spent two glorious days at this historical property overlooking the harbor. As soon as you approach the antique iron forged gate you know this place is going to be something special. Located at the top...

My wife and I stayed at this lovely B&B for two nights en route to STJ and for a night upon our return.

I visited specifically for R&R and was so pleased with the property, I rarely left, expect for dinner and exercise. The historic charm of the inn is balanced by contemporary amenities and the location allows for a short walk to the water's edge, and a handful of boutiques, markets and restaurants near the marina. Lovely hosts who completely know how...

Our hosts, Jessica and Mark, made us feel like family. The room was delightful, cheerful, very clean, plenty of storage so we didn't have to live out of our suitcases. Every morning coffee was ready on the deck which is why I rated it better than home! The view was spectacular. Every day Jessica served a wonderful breakfast. I wanted...

Our stay this year at At Home in the Tropics featured a twist from our previous four stays, new owners. Anytime an inn or restaurant changes ownership one can't help but worry about changes or a decrease in service. We could tell upon our arrival (actually before...more on that later) that our worries were unfounded. Jessica and Mark provide the...
