Our family group of 10 had been looking forward to our BVI stay at the Sunset House for over 1 year. In 2017 we were very saddened to see the images of Irma’s devastation and wondered how our vacation might be affected. The House Manager Carmen was wonderful as she stayed in touch and updated us about the restoration of Sunset House. She communicated frequently about all of the planning aspects for our stay, particularly those associated with the menu selection and our food and beverage provisioning. When our group arrived on Tortola (via ferries and flight) Carmen met us to lead our rental cars to the Sunset House. What a magnificent first sight! The house was beautiful, the view of Long Bay Beach was phenomenal, and wonderful aromas wafted from the kitchen where dinner was being prepared. We had decided to eat every dinner at Sunset House and were so happy we did! Cynthia is a terrific chef who prepared delicious meals for us every night. Lauris was so gracious as our server, and she prepared some delicious appetizers and kept the kitchen spotless. Each morning Jennifer would appear and prepare a terrific continental breakfast with fresh fruits, muffins, and bagels. Jennifer also kept the house and bedrooms pristine and took care of laundry. All four ladies had sparkling personalities and worked extraordinarily hard to take care of us.
Sunset House is unlike most other properties in that a house staff is provided. You can choose to have the chef prepare gourmet meals where you will be charged for the food purchase, the cost will be much less than if you were to eat out at a comparable Tortola restaurant. A continental breakfast will be prepared for you. Daily cleaning is provided. If you are looking for a stress free vacation in paradise, this is the real deal. The drive to Road Town takes about 30 minutes. Some of the roads are in not so great condition, and taxis can be expensive.
