Villa Matija, Brewer's Bay

Villa description

Villa Matija (pronounced ma-TEE-ya) sits above Brewer’s Bay with an outstanding view of Jost Van Dyke and several other smaller cays and islands. On a clear day you can see Puerto Rico (about 70 miles away)! Enjoy the beauty and comfortable climate of the Caribbean with all the comforts of home at your fingertips. With just two bedrooms, Villa Matija is perfect for two couples or a small family. Each bedroom has its own ensuite bath and is air conditioned for your comfort. A beautifully appointed kitchen opens to an outdoor dining room, deck and plunge pool. In the evening relax and enjoy your favourite movies in the living room on a 58″ plasma TV with Bose surround sound. Paradise has never been so good!

Villa Matija takes advantage of the abundant sunshine in the BVI with a solar hot water system and photovoltaic (PV) panels installed to generate electricity from the sun. Although its not able to generate all electricity in this manner, the system provides consistent power as would a backup generator, but without the noise or pollution. A portion of the villa’s electrical needs are met by the PV panels with the rest coming from the municipal power supply. And don’t worry, the solar hot water is backed up by a traditional heater which provides an abundant supply of hot water whatever time of day you need it.

Brewer’s Bay beach, one of the most beautiful in the BVI, is just a short 3 mins’ drive down the hill. Cane Garden Bay, another favourite BVI beach, is just 10 mins’ drive away. Road Town, the capital of the BVI is also only 10 mins away, yet when you’re at Villa Matija you feel like you’re in another world. Enjoy the beaches, snorkeling or just lounge at the villa.

Trudi’s personal opinion

If you’re seeking a peaceful villa with amazing ocean views then look no further than Villa Matija. Located in the lush hills above Brewer’s Bay, this affordable property is perfect for couples or a small family. The villa is only a few minutes’ drive from one of my favourite beaches on Tortola at Brewer’s Bay for excellent snorkeling, and not much further is Cane Garden Bay for restaurants, bars and stores.

Villa Matija is ideally located north-central of Tortola so nowhere on island is too far to reach although the villa’s inviting pool, comfortable furnishings and well-equipped kitchen mean you can spend a relaxing day at the property and don’t have to venture too far if you feel like a lazy day at your ‘home away from home’. Wherever you choose to spend your time, there’s nothing better at the end of the day than to cool down in the pool with a cocktail in hand as you watch the sun set on another wonderful day in the islands.

    I want to thank you for helping us plan such a wonderful vacation! Villa Matija is an incredible place with a constantly spectacular and uplifting view, in all kinds of light and weather. We finally got an actual sunset on our last day! The Villa was so beautiful and comfortable that it was hard to leave everyday and wonderful to come back to every night. It was a great place to celebrate my daughter’s graduation and my 60th. My husband and daughter both had a great time exploring, relaxing, and taking photos. I’m hoping to paint from mine when I get the chance. I could have used the pool, ocean, and air temperatures to be even warmer, but I’m one of those people who love the heat (as long as I can be in the water!). Thank you for your guidance and for recommending Villa Matija. The experience was uplifting for our souls and brought us a lot of wonderful memories in the short time we were there. It’s been hard to adjust to getting back to “reality.”

    I think the highlight was our trip to the Baths and Devil’s Bay on Virgin Gorda. Absolutely fantastic! I could not get out of the beautiful blue water. They had red flags up and said it was rough, but it was like a calm day at the Jersey Shore! Also a wonderful place for photography for my daughter and husband. We also loved White Bay on Jost Van Dyke, but it got a little crowded with young drinkers and boats very close in to the shore. We were there on a Saturday and I wonder if it is less busy on a week day. Still worth the trip. A beautiful white sand beach!

    We spent a lot of time at Myett’s on Cane Garden Bay, went to Smuggler’s Cove, and I had a beautiful, but brief, swim in Long Bay on Beef Island. I was told that Brewer’s Bay is the best for snorkeling (which we didn’t do), but I rarely saw anyone there. Have many pictures of it from the villa, but would like to have spent a little more time there.

    This being our 3rd trip to Tortola, my wife and I were looking for a wonderful home that offered million dollar views and was up to our standards (yes, we are a bit spoiled with the nicer things). Boy did Villa Matija deliver. Too often folks go on vacation and are compelled to leave their lodging and explore and go go go. This home invites you to stay, exhale a bit and delight in the caress of the warm Tortola sunshine. Shame on you if don’t spend as much time as you can truly immerse yourself in the home away from home. You can also appreciate the added benefit of knowing that this well-appointed villa is also environmentally-friendly by using solar panels for electricity and collected rainwater.

    The villa is in a wonderful location overlooking jaw-dropping Brewer’s Bay and the islands of Jost Van Dyke in the distance. Beaches, restaurants, shopping and nightlife are merely minutes away yet you have the sense of extreme privacy and being surrounded by nature itself (the birds never stop singing and chirping – I don’t they are allowed to on Tortola : ) If luxury in the middle of paradise is what you’re looking for and you really want to treat your soul to a taste of heaven on earth, look no further than Villa Matija.

    The entire booking process was simply perfect. We were well-informed and aware at all times. Trudi is nothing short of superhero. In a world where customer service is unfortunately an afterthought, she went above and beyond to insure that my entire experience was smooth and pleasant. Bravo!

    Does “I want to live in this villa the rest of my life” count as a rating? Superb. Beautiful. Magnificent. Words fail to convey… A+ Great kitchen. Lovely bathrooms and bedrooms. Pool was beautiful. Top notch home. The owner, Tom, was absolutely the greatest. Very responsive and attentive. The housekeeper was perfect.

    Some snorkeling gear would be a nice treat to have in the home and a safe* would be great!

    Villa Matija exceeded my expectations by a long shot. I honestly can think of nothing that wasn’t addressed, handled or explained that could have been more helpful.

    AMAZING! 🙂 We absolutely loved Tortola and Villa Matija. It was a beautiful property with an amazing view. It was perfect for us. Thanks so much for recommending. Tom was very nice and the maid service was great. We had such a great time and recommended the villa to a few other couples we met while there. While showing the pictures of the villa in our camera to a few other couples, I think everyone was most envious!

    Thanks again and can’t wait until we can return!
