February 2017 was our second trip to the Sunset House and it makes us want to return. The views from this house are amazing!!! The beaches we visit are breathtaking and the excursions will last a lifetime! When you're all done for the day..........you head back to the house where the friendly staff is preparing appetizers and a gourmet dinner. What more can you ask for? Bring your appetite, drinking shoes, bathing suit and sunscreen! 04/12/17— The Tozzi's

Six days in Paradise. The Sunset House was the perfect spot to enjoy our days in Tortola. Great setup separating the sleeping areas from the "fun" zones (swimming, eating, socializing). Close to everything. Will definitely be going back! 2/4/17— The Sleasmans
Our 1st trip, but not our last! The fabulous staff kept us comfortable and extremely well fed. Each day's adventure began and ended in the comfy chairs on the perfect porch. Sunset House really is as wonderful as all the reviews indicate. 2/8/17— Sue & Bill
Sunset House was absolutely amazing! We enjoyed a week of sailing, snorkeling, island hopping, and fabulous views. Carmen, Jennifer, Violet, Loris, and Cynthia are all absolutely fantastic. They made my 40th birthday week amazing. The meals and views are truly the best on the island. Thank you for a awesome week! 03/04/17— VanderMeer's & Friends
My stay at the Sunset House was wonderful. I experienced the height of Island graciousness. The views were mesmerizing and the island breezes great. The staff and meals professional, and delicious. With a dip in the pool made everything right with the world. Thank you to all for a vacation from heaven! 02/19/17— Linda
What an amazing week! Waking up to the most beautiful views one could imagine - that was just the beginning of each day. Everyone was so friendly, the food was incredible but the icing on the cake were the lime trees! Thank you for a fabulous week! 02/18/17— Jeanne & Diane

Staying at the Sunset House was the vacation of a lifetime! Everything about this house is amazing! From the beautiful views to the delicious food, it was perfect! I never wanted to leave and I can't wait to go back.— Kylene Parker
A day at Sunset house is a day in paradise. This is our second visit and it is even better than I remembered. Already planning our next trip - want to share it with more friends. Can't say enough about the spectacular view from every room, the constant sound of the waves, relaxing swims in the pool and the welcoming staff. Comfortable rooms kept up every day by Jenny, gourmet meals by Cynthia and Loris. Took great day trips to Jost Van Dyke and Norman island and visited local beaches Smuggglers and Cane Garden, each are a must - love my pina coladas. It may sound to good to be true, but luckily it isn't. Sunset house is our preferred vacation destination 11/10/16— Christine Stuto
Sunset House is the place to be! Between amazing view and great location it could not get much better. Have dinner at Brandywine, or D' Coal Pot and travel for the day to Jost Van Dyke or take a day sail to Virgin Gorda. For a private and euphoric beach experience, head to Lambert beach/Turtle Bay resort and have the beach all to yourselves and see the amazing waves! Love captain Karam & Crew. 11/29/16— Zachary & Friends
Had an incredible time in Tortola here at the Sunset House. Surrounded by great friends, amazing food, and the most beautiful views I have ever seen has made this trip one I will never forget. Thank you so much to Carmen and staff who exceeded all expectations. Favorite beach: Jost Van Dyke, favorite view: (other than Sunset House) Bananakeet Café. Excursion: Virgin Gorda Baths. Recommendation: All food was amazing, but wish we would have decided to enjoy more dinners at the house. 11/21/16— Brendan & Friends
Another incredible stay at the Sunset house! We can not get enough of this place. The staff is just wonderful, and attend to your every need. Just fabulous! Looking forward to our next stay! 11/6/16— Patty & Kerry Chesterfield
My third trip to the Sunset House! Always a great time. It is truly paradise. The staff is superb and so accommodating. Cannot rave enough about the service. The views are always breathtaking and it never gets old having morning coffee with a beautiful ocean view. Would highly recommend it for a trip with friends or family. Can't wait to return again! 11/5/16— yvonne fontenot
We had a great time in Tortola and staying at Sunset House definitely made it better! Thanks to Carmen and Jennifer. We will highly recommend it to our friends in Puerto Rico. 07/31/16— Ocasio-Santa Family
Perfect 50th Birthday Celebrations! We stayed at the Sunset House with good friends to celebrate multiple 50th birthdays. What a way to celebrate! The house and location are perfect. Beautiful view, wonderful rooms, lovely staff and the food was amazing. Carmen was so helpful and helped make our vacation so easy and relaxed. All of her recommendations were spot on and we had a wonderful time. Did I mention the view??? So incredible. We also enjoyed this side of the island, plenty to explore and we walked to the beach. We can't wait to come back. 06/11/16— The McElderry's & Friends
This is our second time to enjoy Sunset House and it just gets better and better. We were here 16 years ago with all our family and Carmen is the main reason we wanted to return. What a perfect place to enjoy being with our family. 06/24/16— The Baughman Family
I can't leave!! Sunset House is such a special space. Carmen and her staff are amazing people and couldn't have provided a more lovely, welcoming week for us to spend on Tortola. The best meals we had here. I wouldn't waste your time going out for dinner anywhere else (or your money) best food we had was here by far!!! The views, the beach can't be beat and we live in California! We will definitely be back. Bringing friends and recommending to many. 06/8/16— The Kulp's Family
This was our second stay at the Sunset House, and another great time was had by all! Everyone was so friendly - Carmen, Jennifer, Loris, and Violet are top notch. Our dinner on the first night was delicious and it was so nice to have it ready when we arrived. This is a special place and we always think of the view when it's cold and snowy up north. 05/28/16— Kaufman & Friends
What a fantastic holiday! We will definitely be back for the food, the view, the great friendship and the whole experience. Sunset House exceeded all of our expectations. How lucky are we!!! 04/23/16— The Milne's & Friends
What a lovely time! Thank you to Carmen, Jennifer, Cynthia, Loris, and Violet. We all felt pampered and definitely well fed. Sunset House was the perfect choice to gather our children and their families form all over the USA. We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable and homey environment to enjoy each other's company. We are sad to have to leave. Many Thanks!! 05/14/16— DelMastro Family
Our family of 7 has enjoyed every second of our time here at the Sunset House. Loris and Cynthia added what feels like several inches to our waistlines because their cooking was too good to refuse. Plus both these amazing ladies were adored by our children, Marty (5) and Diego (3) - they have "a way" with children. Jennifer is equally wonderful and we referred to her as '' the good fairy" because the house was kept immaculate 24/7! she truly is magic. We leave today with the beautiful views from Sunset House tattooed forever in our memories it has been truly amazing! 04/02/16— The Barry Family
Thank you for a wonderful week! The views are spectacular. The food was so incredible, we should probably walk home! Thank you to all the staff for being so welcoming and taking such good care of us. 03/13/16— Joan & Steve
The Sunset House is incredible. The views, the food, the sound of the crashing waves. Carmen and the staff were so accommodating. Coming here to celebrate a 50th birthday was fabulous. We would love to celebrate every birthday, anniversary, and holiday here! Look forward to returning. 03/19/16— Phil & Sue
Again, a great trip to Sunset House! Great weather & lots of fun. Staff Superb! Very spoiling! Can't wait to return. 03/12/16— Yvonne & Gary
Have I looked forward to this week for 6 months, and it has not disappointed one bit!! Beautiful house, views and beaches, very sweet and friendly staff, delicious meals, soothing sounds and glorious sunsets. Will definitely tell all my friends and come back any chance I get! 2/20/16— Liz Mariaca
So much fun to be here and share a great time. The family is wonderful to say the least - the staff the absolute best. Everyone was kind, helpful and fun. The meals were delish! The views can't be beat. Your hard work makes it a 5 star in my book. I will treasure these memories!! Thank you to all at the Sunset House. 2/13/16— Marilyn & Bryan
The extended McDonald family found Sunset House homely and spectacular! Ensuite private bedrooms plus indoor/outdoor gathering areas met every circumstance. The staff with Carmen at the helm met our needs and more. Much thanks to Cynthia & Loris (cooks) Jennifer & Violet (housekeepers). The memories were here for the taking but you all made them better!! 2/27/16— The McDonald Family
Nine of us stayed in the wonderful Sunset House and boy did we have fun! The views, the pool, the breakfast, and the sun - what more could we ask for! It was an incredible week we will all remember. Tilt up Willy T'S boat bar for a good time. We will be back! 1/18/16— The Diorio's and Friends
Our second visit to Sunset House and we've had a wonderful time. Thanks so much to all the ladies for taking such great care of us. All the meals were fabulous! Cannot wait to come back and enjoy that amazing view. 02/01/16— Gaynor & Ian
A great spot to spend the holidays sunning, sailing, beaching, drinking, and of course eating. Great care of us was taken by Cynthia, Loris and Jennifer. Will be hard to do it ourselves again! A return trip soon we hope! I echo what my sister says! Fabulous here, the house is great and the staff make a wonderful team. We went out to dinner once and wished we had just stayed "home". Also highly recommend a day sail/snorkel trip with Kuralu Private Charters. So sad to leave today.... 12/26/15— Longpre/Monarchis/Smith's
Last week was one I will never forget. Turning 60 at the Sunset House on beautiful Tortola was simply a dream come true! Having wonderful friends and family here to help me celebrate was very special. The daily housekeeping made us feel like royalty and the fabulous dinners and hors d'oeuvres were delicious every night. Everyone was so accommodating. Carmen really went out of her way to set up all of our plans and I have to say it was all amazing. Hate to leave this wonderful home.....until next time. 12/13/15— The Conroy's & Friends
This has been an almost magical trip! The weather was great, the views are stunning and hypnotic. Cynthia, Loris, and Sharon made such wonderful food, and Jennifer kept everything so clean and organized. The occasion was our daughter, Anna's wedding. This place and their staff did a magnificent job of making a special occasion extra special. We'll remember it always. 12/6/15— The Smith's & Friends
What a fabulous place! This house is so beautiful with a glorious view! The service has been the extra added touch to this rental. We love Carmen, Cynthia, Loris, Jenny, & Violet. 11/27/15— Romero & Friends
A sad day because we have to leave this place!!! Five nights, four beaches, Willy T'S A CAT........ what could be better? The Sunset House is the place to stay. Food and service is top notch!! The 270 degrees water views are breathtaking, and the food....made to order from the staff is the best on the Island. Do yourself a favor and book this place with up to 5 couples!!!! 11/10/15— John & Karen
To be at the Sunset House with nothing to do, but sit and look at the multi shades of blue. The most impressive Caribbean view while enjoying a lovely cocktail, or two. Love this place! 11/10/15— Kristi & Todd
A very successful, enjoyable, & beautiful family vacation. Shout out to Carmen & the Sunset crew for top notch accommodations. Thank you!! BBC @ Coopers - enjoy the ocean table; Saba Rock grouper sandwich; Stoutt's lookout for 2 sunset drink; the Baths incredible! Lost my diamond earring RIP; Foxy's - sign your school's flag & hear some jokes by the man himself.

Myett's beach (and maybe steal a stoli ice bucket...)Try a cocktail on every island # painkillers 4 days when crossing the open ocean, be prepared. The best family vacation we could have asked for! 08/15/15— The Wimberly's & Larish Family
Wow! How do I begin! As we walked thru the front entrance of Sunset House we knew it was going to be a week we will never forget. Greeted by Carmen and the amazing team at the Sunset House was beyond a doubt the most friendly & professional group anybody could want. Waking up to Jennifer or Violet one only knew it was going to be a good day! Trips to Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, & Road Town were some of the best. BUT.....We knew we would arrive back to some of the best appetizers and dinners prepared by Cynthia & Loris! Unforgetable!! Hats off to everyone that made our family vacation one of the best! To the owner: Thank You! 8-5-15— The Mitchussons
Sunset House is a rare gem! We've been to Tortola many times before. This is the first time with our children. The villa was beautiful, spacious, and the views breathtaking. The staff are simply brilliant! Nothing was too much trouble. We loved the dinners too! wow! Best food on the island and right here in our own dining room. We enjoyed diving with Blue Waters BVI in Nanny Cay. Excellent service and an ever present smile all around. Thank you for making our holiday so special! A big thank you to Carmen and her superb team! We will be back! 07/21/15— The Okhravi Family
What an amazing vacation - been dreaming about a vacation in the BVI for years. This was better than my dreams! 07/11/15— The Riddles

The Sunset House will definitely be a part of our lives forever. We made amazing memories here & can't wait to make more when we visit next year!

Amazingly beautiful house with spectacular views, and phenomenal service. This was the perfect spot for Papa Gordon's 70th birthday celebration. Can't imagine anything better.

Thanks for everything, Carmen. 06/06/15— The Fleming Family
Thank you Sunset House for the best week ever. The staff were all so friendly & made us feel like family. We can't wait to come back. Again & again!! 05/17/15— Kristie & Devon
What else can we say about the Sunset House! Carmen and the staff are so friendly, they make you feel right at home from the moment you walk in. Being able to spend your vacation with family in the privacy of this breathtaking home vs. a hotel makes all the difference. The dinners are fantastic feels good to eat a home cooked meal at the end of a busy day exploring. The views here are beyond incredible, and sitting on the veranda looking at the lights at night is the perfect end to every day here. Thank you to everyone at the Sunset House for giving us the vacation of a lifetime. 05/17/15— The Johnsons
We had such an amazing time. The service was amazing, and waking up to this view every morning was breathtaking. So sad to go home but hope to be back again. 3/15/15— Carpluk & Friends
Better than the pictures! Perfect 3/15/15— Krissy
This place is paradise and we can't wait to return! The views, rooms, staff, and food exceeded our expectations. We really enjoyed staying with our friends. Loved the morning beach walks and snorkeling. 4/5/15— The Olsens
What a fabulous house from the bedrooms, common areas to the pool & hot tub! The housekeeping and cooking staff were top notch! 5 star all the way! 2/28/15— Dan & Darlene Daly
Spectacular views! Weather was perfect What a blessing to be here in paradise, with our wonderful friends. Dreading going home to the cold and snow after such a wonderful week at the Sunset House. Truly enjoyed our sunny days by the pool and on the sea. Fantastic meals & staff. Thank you! 3/7/15— The Kimmel Party
What a beautiful view - beautiful weather. Carmen and her staff provided scrumptious meals. We enjoyed using the pool after our day at the beach. Great company and we all enjoyed our 13th reunion in the BVI's we were so fortunate to experience a beautiful fine work display over the "Long Bay" Now we have to leave this wonderful paradise only to go back to cold weather!!! - 2 degrees and snow! Hope to get back next year. 2/7/15— The Dilt's & Friends
Thank you for a magical week in Tortola all nine of us, we all had a great time! Every dinner was delicious and the views were incredible the company was the best. We had so much fun lounging at Smugglers Cove and love by the pool. This was baby Luca, Hazel's & Owen's first time in the Caribbean Sea! Our evenings were spent playing dominoes and having dance parties - even a dip in the hot dub. Many rum punches and painkillers were consumed. It was amazing and we are so grateful for it all. Until next time! 1/24/15— The DeMartinos & Friends
Vacation at its best. This house has spectacular views and relaxing amenities. And yes, you can walk to that idyllic beach in the picture, as I was asked when I got home. Tortola is a great island to explore, but I agree with other guests comments that you can just stay at the property and never leave. Highly recommended. 2/15/15— Kimmey Janco
Fabulous first class vacation! Don't bother leaving this house! Sit back, relax and enjoy! Best of the best !! 2/27/15— Jimmy and Christine DiScipio
We stayed for a week at the Sunset House with 4 other couples and it was far beyond our expectations. From the in-house cooking, to the amenities, and cleanliness of this fine establishment everything was first class. There was more than enough room for everyone to gather in one place or to take some time alone and read a book if you wanted. We traveled the entire island and the location was by far the best. The sun sets right in front of you every night and you fall asleep to the waves crashing below. It was absolute paradise and after reading all the 5 star reviews we now know why. We'll be back. Thank you Carmen and team for a memorable vacation and the extra 5 pounds I'm now carrying grin 2/27/15 Paul and Corinna Burke - Schenectady New York— Paul and Corinna Burke
The Sunset House is simply spectacular! What a great staff and the chef's were amazing. Best food on the island by far...The views are beautiful especially the sunsets! I highly recommend staying here. It's a little piece of paradise for sure! So glad we had the chance to experience Tortola and stay at the Sunset House. Such a warm and friendly atmosphere...We'll be back some day for sure! 3/4/2015— Lori and Ken Panetta
What a "Girls Getaway" vacation! The Sunset House has it all! If you are looking for true relaxation…this is the place. No thinking required! The staff is attentive and the food is amazing; healthy, authentic and plentiful! The house is tastefully furnished and sits at a perfect level for daytime views as well as watching the sun set on the wraparound veranda. You have privacy around you surrounded by beautiful gardens! Loved the waterfall by the pool and the hot tub was always ready. Cannot wait to come back with the family! 1/15/15— Pat Salinas
Happy New Year!! From the Schreiner family. We stayed eleven days with 4 of our 5 children. This was one of our best vacation because the views were breath taking, and we had great weather- the villa was wonderful, Carmen and her staff were very efficient and the meals and service were outstanding. Our children went to Bomba Shack nightly and they could walk which was nice. Another highlight was the lunch on the beach at the Sugar Mill restaurant, also the sunset ferry on the return trip from Virgin Gorda. We hired a band to come to the villa VERSIONS it can be arranged if you would like to hear them. We will always have the fondest memories of the Sunset House. 1/7/15— The Schreiner Family
This has been the best vacation my family has taken. It is our first time to the British Virgin Islands, and our first time here. The staff could have not been better, the house is beautifully taken care of and presented. We did many adventures but coming back to the house was everyone's favorite part. We are so glad we stayed here of all places. We hope to come back! 12/27/14— The Montgomery's
This was our first time staying at the Sunset House and in Tortola! We could not have had a better place to stay. All of the staff were amazing and so incredibly nice. The view of course was spectacular and, the adventures were endless! Thank you so much for an unforgettable Christmas break!! 12/27/14— The Hurt Family
Our first time at the Sunset and House and we hope it won't be our last. The views are incredible, the house has been beautifully updated, and the food, artfully prepared by Carmen and staff was magnificent. If you are looking for an unforgettable and truly relaxing vacation, this it. 12/15/14— Jim and Lisa Hoffman
Great time at the Sunset House and likely many more. The view is amazing, the beaches are beautiful & the staff is great. The food was great every night! No need to eat out best to stay in and enjoy the great comforts and friends right here at the Sunset House. Be sure to visit White Bay & Soggy Dollar. Thanks for the invite! 12/10/14— Gary & Yvonne
Our first time at the Sunset House and certainly not our last! The food was amazing as well as the rooms, view and all of the staff. Highly recommend Stoutt's lookout for a beverage and to enjoy a beautiful panoramic view. Our favorite beach was White Bay and we spent all day at Soggy Dollar. Thanks for a fun and relaxing vacation! 12/5/14— The Rinella's
Our long-planned family reunion/Thanksgiving holiday was perfect because of the fabulous Sunset House and the care of Carmen and staff. Ranging in age from 12 - 82 we were so comfortable in our own paradise by the ocean. The food prepared for us by the staff was so delicious - best traditional Thanksgiving dinner ever! Carry-out Ginger Chicken from the Palm's Delight for local flare was a delight. A day sail on the Aristocat was so relaxing for all. Our trip to the Baths on Virgin Gorda combined a hike that Grandma will never forget, and the waves at Long Bay lulled us all to sleep each evening. Thank you, Carmen, for helping us to create so perfect a family vacation. 11/22/14— The Taylor's & Harkins Family
The Sunset House was a truly fabulous place to stay. Carmen and the staff were very accommodating and we felt very pampered while we were there. The views were breathtaking, the food superb, (my favorite was the lobster), and the island and beaches were beautiful! So much to see and enjoy. It was our first visit to the Sunset House and hopefully not our last! Truly Paradise! Thank you all~ 12/11/14— The Fontenots
Ok...May I just say for the hundredth time, that "It just doesn't get any better than this!" The moment we arrived we have been treated like royalty, Do you hear me? Royalty. The staff were the best, all sweeties...all of them. We have loved our time here and, like everyone else who has had the good fortune to discover this home, truly a home we hate to leave and can't wait to return. Carmen and her staff have been nothing but the perfect hosts and their meals here...oh my! too wonderful. How great is it to have a fabulous dinner at home and be able to relax and just...be! Thank you to our fabulous hosts, the wonderful paradise they have named Tortola, and we will set a goal to return soon. 10/31/14— The Bellish's & Friends
Best vacation ever! Felt at home the minute we arrived. Patouche is a great boat/trip service, highly recommended. Will come again!!! 9/7/2014— The Landry's & Friends
Another great week at Sunset House. The staff are the best, coming here is like staying with family. Looking forward to next time!!!! 8/17/14— The Stacey Family
A truly wonderful place and a wonderful home to share. Carmen & team were fabulous - best meals on the island. Recommend a catamaran ride & dive the Rhone! Thanks for sharing your home! 7/27/14— Padden Family
What a beautiful home on a gorgeous island. We had a wonderful time escaping and relaxing "island style"! Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda all were perfect. Carmen is a fantastic & gracious hostess, her team ran the house impeccable. The lobster dinner is still the single best meal we had, courtesy of Carmen & team. Thank you for a terrific time. Can't wait to come back!! 7/27/14— Jaggi Family
We've travelled all over the world and this is the best vacation by far. The island is absolutely gorgeous and the Sunset House was perfect for our large family. You really can't beat this view. We love Carmen and the entire staff. You will not find any better cooking here on the island than the Sunset House. We took a day trip to Jost Van Dyke and sat and what became my family's favorite beach, I strongly advise going. If you are looking for a day trip out on a boat we used Double D'S boat charter to go to the Baths on Virgin Gorda and best snorkeling at Peter Island. Blue Water divers rocked for scuba diving. We love it and can't wait to come back! 7/20/14— The Lambright Family
Best vacation we have ever experienced! Every day was an adventure filled with fun and relaxation! The staff was amazing! The house was the best on the island- The memories and fun we had will last a lifetime! 6/27/14— brandi and mitch carbonie
Where to begin?? In a word, it was "Everything"...everything I had hoped for to celebrate my 40th birthday with 8 other wonderful women. We had a fantastic time! I cannot say enough about how amazing Carmen, Loris, Cynthia, Jennifer and Violet were to us. They made us feel special and cared for while we stayed there, they took the time to get to know us and accomidated anything we asked for. We truly felt like we were with friends when we spent time with these lovely ladies. The rooms were clean and beautifully decorated. The view from the master bathroom while showering was breath-taking. The sunsets were in a word - ridiculous, we all spent many hours sitting and watching them, taking pictures and of course talking about them. The food was DELICIOUS! we enjoyed everything from the soups, the salads, to the main course and of course something sweet after dinner! Be sure to have the coconut shrimp, potato leek soup, salmon with the creamy dill sauce and key lime pie! I would HIGHLY recommend doing the meal plan, it's the best food and service you will receive on the island, I promise. Mario from West End Taxi took care of us all week, carting us here and there, making sure we were taken care of and safe, we were sad to say good-bye to him. As I sit here typing this, thinking last week at this time a few of us had taken a day trip over to St. John to go to the amazing Trunk Bay, I am sad, it's true, but I remind myself of all the blessings I had that entire week with old friends and new friends made at Sunset House, it is truly a trip to remember, and all due to the time we spent at this wonderful house. Many thanks to the entire Sunset House staff...a birthday to remember for always! 6/13/14— Jennifer Horner, Durham, NC
Thank you Carmen & all the staff for the wonderful week! You all made our wedding an unforgettable experience and escape from the typical affair. We both appreciate all of your hard work, attention to detail and hospitality. This is truly a home away from home. We can't wait to come back and visit, and celebrate our many marriage anniversaries to come. Thank you for treating us and our guests as family during this special time! 5/31/14— The Morales
A great place for families! We were there with 4 parents, 3 eleven-year-olds, a nine-year-old and a six-year-old and never heard, "I'm bored," for the seven days we were there. Carmen and the staff treated our children like their own and accommodated any picky eating habits with ease. One evening while eating one of Carmen's outstanding meals, we asked my daughter her favorite part of the trip, she responded, "The food." With the incredible view and amenities, we spent half of our days just relaxing at the house and didn't feel as though we were missing out. Easy access to beautiful beaches such as Cane Garden Bay, Smugglers Cove and Long Bay was the icing on the cake. We WILL be going back! April 2014— The Grants
When one of thinks of the word paradise they clearly have the Sunset House in mind. We had an incredible stay here - one where you wish time would stop. The endless breathtaking views, the lovely spacious accommodations and the delicious dinners (best soups we have ever tasted!) prepared by Carmen and her warm attentive staff are just a few highlights of a week we will never forget. The kids had a tremendous time as well as for sure the Sunset House is well suited for families. Before our stay was even over we were brainstorming when we could come back. - April 2014— Matthew and Kelli Naccari
Sunset House is fabulous! Tremendous views, wonderful meals and outstanding accommodations. Our first trip to Tortola but certainly not our last. So much to see and do, or just enjoy hanging out at the house and pool. Thank you to the staff, you spoiled us. This was an esteem vacation! paradise found!! 4/19/14— The Stuto Family
Thank you to the wonderful staff at Sunset House. What a magical place! The best view on the island, it was difficult to leave the house to explore the rest of the island. The meals were amazing, we loved the quietness of long Bay Beach we could not have picked a better place to spend our week on Tortola. 3/29/14— The Hurteau Family
We hoped for an island paradise and found it!!!! A gathering of good friends for my 40th birthday, this week at the Sunset House has been amazing the staff are simply the best(and pretty good dancers too!) as was everyone we met in the BVI. Great memories are made here and we are so glad we came. We will be back for sure!!! 2/22/14— S.J. Luedtke
We had a perfect time with family and friends! The Sunset House has the best of everything that Tortola has to offer. The view can not be beat from the deck and every room in the house. Carmen and the staff provided wonderful hospitality and outstanding nightly meals! We enjoyed the beautiful pool as well as fun day sails and snorkel trips. Can't wait to return!! 3/21/14— Mariel McGehee
One of the best vacations I've ever been on. The house and views are spectacular! The staff and Chef Carmen and Loris are very friendly and caring! Carmens entrees are generous and incredibly delicious! Thank you for an unforgettable week. Love Love The sunset house!!! 2/14/14— Patty Chesterfield
What an extravagant stay! Carmen and the staff made us delicious meals and made our stay completely and amazingly enjoyable. It was so relaxing to sit by the pool and hot tub in the sun while at home it was snowing! The views made our chins drop as we saw the beautiful clear blue ocean down below. It's so sad to leave this beautiful paradise. Thanks again for everything! 1/18/14— The Hogans Family
This has been the most relaxing beautiful stay in a Villa we've ever had. The staff have all been so kind and wonderful to all of us. Thank you Carmen for amazing meals each night. We were very happy to be basking in the Sunshine rather than shoveling snow back home. We've made many beautiful memories here and will take them with us forever. Happy New Year! 1/12/14— The Cody & Page Family
What a way to celebrate the New Year! Wonderful friends, food, sun & the Sunset House! Oh yes a lot of Wine & Pain Killers. It's snowing at home just to make us appreciate our time in the BVI! 1/5/14— Pequets,Keslers,Pents,Kesslering & Shaheen's
Loved every minute of this vacation. The cooking and villa were absolutely the best. Body surfing on Long Bay was just great. It's cold and rainy at home and it sucks we have to leave. We'll be back I hope. 12/28/13— Brian & Max
There are lots of places on these islands we've visited a few; by far this is the # Beesknees or shall I say the # Catsmeow. The waves bury you deep and you can body surf them right into Nature Boys beach bar. The view is superbly magnificent; Carmen's food was fabulous. Sunset House, Tortola Carmen and the rest of the staff exceeded expectations. We've had a wonderful vacation and a Christmas we'll never forget. Can't wait to come back. Thank you! 12/28/13— Gaynor James & The Gowen Family
What amazing memories!!! Third time at Sunset House. Best Chef Carmen, always needed for a perfect vacation never will forget these days on Tortola with my family. Couldn't be happier with life and the way things are we came to celebrate our families accomplishments and how far we have come, my amazing mother Susan and the best father in the world Paul brought us here. Although we never want to leave all good things came to an end. Never forget the Spies at Sunset House!! 11/29/13— The Spies Family
What an amazing days. We came up to look for waves from Sunset House we could choose the best waves. We came to celebrate Ricky's birthday too we couldn't find a better place. All the way from Portugal!! 22/11/13— Afonso Lemos & Ricardo Salgueiro
Wow - I cannot say enough good things about the Sunset House. My husband and I went down with four other couples and spent a wonderful long weekend. The views are even more fabulous than they look in the pictures! Everything has been remodeled and all the rooms, pool, hot tub, gardens, etc. are spotless and well maintained. The staff is amazing, they take care of everything and Carmen is a fantastic cook. If you go, you have to try one of her meals, and especially her soups! Here was our Sunset House experience - arise at leisure, enjoy a continental breakfast freshly prepared and waiting while savoring the glorious view, perhaps a stroll down to the beach or a dip in the pool, take a fun trip to one of the other islands or beaches complete with a delicious lunch and drinks at one of the many beach bars that abound, come home to a spotlessly cleaned house, relax and enjoy the sunset, sit down to a delicious dinner all prepared, served and cleaned up by the warm and wonderful staff, hang out and laugh and talk with great friends with perhaps another dip in the pool or hot tub. Get up the next morning and repeat! If that sounds appealing to you, this is the house to go to. Carmen was also so amazing with details for our stay. She had all the information we needed on reserving jeeps, where to go on the island and off island, procuring groceries we requested. This is the total package. I would recommend this property to anyone and everyone. I can't wait to go back!! 11/10/13— Teresa & Bill
Ahhhh...how to describe Paradise....Our stay at Sunset House was amazing. The staff, the surf,the food(OMG-wait till you try Carmen's delish homemade soups!), the atmosphere,the refreshing pool after fun filled days in the sun, sound of the waves as we fell asleep each night all made our stay perfect. Total relaxation will be found here at Sunset House! We had the Best time! Thank You staff & owners of Sunset House! 11/15/13— Dominic & Roxanne Pafundi
