One bedroom in a beautiful apartment house straight on the beach at Josiah's bay, one of the most popular surf beaches. Large airy apartment, room has two queen beds and own toilet/shower, shared basic kitchen and laundry.

The space

There are not may rental places straight on a beach in Tortola and for sure not at this price.
Josiah's bay is a prime surf spot. There is a surf school on the beach, a small cafe catering yummy breakfast and lunch. A bar, open day time for drinks and bar food. Life saving services during season. During winter the surf can be quite high and swimming is not suitable for beginners. However even in winter there will always be calm days. Josiah's is a popular fun and family destination.

Guest access

There is parking available across from the building in a public car park without any charges. The driveway to the house can be affected by the sea and it is not advisable to park at the house without knowledge of the local climate and weather pattern. The apartment has an open plan kitchen/ dining/ living area and a verandah. The ocean always provides some back ground music, but is not directly visible due to some bushes and palm trees. The kitchen is set up for basic cooking if desired, but the food next door is yummy and reasonably priced for the BVI. There is also the Tamarind Club up the road. A few minutes drive or about 15 minutes walk (so they say, haven't actually done it).

Interaction with guests

This is a shared apartment. I live on the other side of the living area, which gives enough distance for privacy. Interaction with guests will be limited, as I work daytimes, sometimes late. So most of the time the apartment will be yours alone. There are several dogs living at the house and I have a cat, who comes in side at times demanding food and a cuddle.

Other things to note

Not suitable for people with allergy to cats.

The TV is only connected to a DVD/Blue Ray player. I have not bothered connecting it, as the available choice is mind numbing boring. You can stream using Netflix over the Wifi on your laptop, if you really have to be glued to a screen during your holiday.

It's just been great. Not just the location... no word about that it can't be better. It's a wonderful house, silently on the nicest beach of the island.. It's also the host.. the nice room, since beautifully decorated, snorkeling gear awaiting you.. And just an thing you can think of or wish for is there. We've been to many AirBnB, but this is the best place we've ever attended.

This is a special place, about 20 minute drive from Road Town, so a car is needed. It sits on a great beach, which is seldom busy. There are 2 small restaurants that offer good food. This place fits someone who is looking for a quiet relaxing place to hang out.

Christoph's place is about 5 seconds from the beach - so a great location. There is a good place to eat just up the road and the beach has lovely Naomi's for the daytime. Christoph is a lovely man with lots of useful and interesting local info.

We made the mistake to not book Christoph's place for the entire vacation. Location is gold. What a great spot and what a nice person! The apartment is big and it has everything you need. We cooked our food and washed our clothes. We had breakfast by the nice table outside on the porch. The apartment is literally on the beach and if you want to learn how to surf in the BVI, it can't get any better. The beach at Josiah's Bay is small and beautiful. Not crowded. We're definitely coming back to Christoph's next time in the BVI.

The house has a good location by the beach even though quite far away from the shops and Road Town. House was very clean and nice. Christoph was absolutely a great host !

Christoph's place is a lovely island of quietness. The description you find in Airbnb is absolutely accurate. I've enjoyed every minute of his company and conversations. His sweet cat rounded my stay at his home. Highly recommend place to stay if you want to be close to the beach, have great company and not worrying about anything else!

This place is heaven on earth! Beautiful beach just around the corner, wonderful snorkeling on the island and really nice people. Christoph made our stay perfect. He is so nice, points out places for you to visit, and really makes an effort for you to feel like home. We will definitely stay here again when we return!
