Enjoy your next beach vacation at Sterling House, a luxury beach house in Long Bay, Tortola, on one of the most photographed, picturesque beaches in the Caribbean. The unique location offers the only Tortola beach house within 15 steps of Long Bay Beach on Tortola’s North shore.

Sailing yachts glide in the distance against the unmatched beauty of the mile long beach.
Mr. @ Mrs...
I just want others to know how wonderful the vacation spot rental is, to be on the beach just walking a few steps to get there is heaven and the water so beautiful old sayings are so true location, location, location...eating dinner on the patio while the sun is setting, and the breeze is flowing which made it is so romantic. A perfect place for a honeymoon or just rekindling the fires for any married couple this makes this house a perfect place to be. We kept our windows open at night so we could hear the ocean and feel the breeze. The house is decorated to ensure a warm and relaxed feeling, and the kitchen makes one want to use it. I loved the fact that the pool was part of the living room we never left the house except to walk the beach which was entertainment enough or us. It was paradise and worth the trip to Tortola to experience it.
Best accommodations in Tortola!
Best location in Tortola, by far! Steps to the white sand, mile long beach. I think I have 50 pictures of the view from every angle out of the villa b/c it is so perfect & gorgeous - best sunset views ever as well! Easy to get to & from most anywhere. Just a 5-10 minute drive to Smuggler's Cove, walkable to Tropical Fusion &Long Bay Rest., 2 min drive to Sebastian's, Bomba Shack, Sugar Mill & D'Coal Pot. Owner Donna is gracious & helpful with a slew of recommendations. Jeannie & other staff were more than accommodating & very friendly. We tried to be pretty low key & not request much, but it was obvious that all would have done whatever it took to make our stay more comfortable! I highly recommend ordering a handful of groceries before arrival - they were all chilled & put away before we arrived. The infinity pool, overlooking Long Bay, is a perfect compliment to playing in the hot sun & wavy ocean - it is a great (convenient!) way to cool off & relax - my daughter's favorite place to read was at its edge. The beds & linens were very comfortable. There is a great breeze throughout most times of day, The kitchen was an absolute chef's kitchen. The bedrooms are very comparable in size & amenities though one has the plunge pool entrance attached to its bath. One morning, we awoke to the view of a gorgeous rainbow over the water from our pillows - it was fantastic! We were supplied with as many clean beach towels as needed; there are beach chairs for use - enough to leave some in a car for exploring & some in storage for use at a house as well as sand toys, pool noodles & small coolers for beach excursions. Wifi worked well & was pretty consistent. The property has a generator, so we didn't even realize that the entire area was without power one evening until we walked into a restaurant for dinner! The beach was terrific. . The little rocky area next to the house was fun for my daughter to explore the tide pools, etc. w/water shoes. Best Pelican watching from the deck & great flat beach to walk/run on to the end. We will certainly be back & though we've stayed in some fantastic hotels and other beachside rental properties, The Sterling House most definitely earns a rank right up at the very top - it was just what we were looking for!
Simply Amazing World Class
It is only on a rare occasion that I would review a property. But, this place is so amazing and special. I just had to write a review. From the moment you come to Sterling House you are enraptured with the beauty and execution of the place. As you enter you are struck by a large infinity pool with mosaic tiles that meets the sea with one of the most amazing views I have ever seen (I am well traveled and only stay at best). In fact, the property has two pools. The other is on the first floor where you can walk right out of the shower to it. I loved the great room with a chef's kitchen designed for everybody to enjoy with this huge breakfast bar….WOW. The place was immaculate with 3 in staff. We had everything we could want. The service was excellent. The views were amazing from every room. We truly were in a world-class property unlike any we have stayed in before. The quality of the house was unsurpassed. With the beach at your footstep, a remarkable house, and fabulous service, what more could we ask for…..Just perfect.....
Our vacation at Sterling House was absolutely amazing. From the moment we checked in Donna, the property manager, and the owner was very responsive and helpful to all of our needs. Our own personal concierge. The place is better than the pictures. It has an incredible world class view, with all of the amenities and comforts of a 5-star hotel. We had comfortable pillows, beds, furniture. The place is designed for every comfort. We had total privacy and if we had a question or needed anything; it was taken care of promptly. Jeannie, the housekeeper, was wonderful. We asked for housekeeping when we were not in the villa; it was always done when we were out. It was a perfect vacation. The beach is beautiful, the people are friendly, and the food at local restaurants was great. The massage waterfall makes you feel wonderful. We are definitely returning to Sterling House!

Great Place to be
When you first arrive at Sterling House in Tortola, you can only be awed by the majesty of the house and the panorama of the views. Three stories of beautifully maintained white concrete with a red roof and spiraling tower, reminiscent of an ancient monastery, are at the water's edge. Waves roll by your doorstep to a white sandy beach framed by towering palms and idyllic houses. Looking out over the rolling azure ocean, you can see mountainous islands covered with tree and bush foliage. At night, the sound of rolling waves breaking on the shore provide a primordial background, which lulls you to sleep. While nature is in abundance, Sterling House is an oasis of civilization. White linen sheets, soft pillows, Mediterranean furniture and travertine marble floors provide the setting for a home away from home. Jeanie, the housekeeper, keeps an impeccably clean house and is there to clean daily as you sit on the veranda, eat and drink while mesmerized by nature. Pantheist or not, you can't help but believe that the divinity is all around you. And of course, the hostess Donna, charming, intelligent and worldly, is accommodating to the extreme as she tries to ensure that your stay is memorable. Donna, knowledgeable in the highlights of Tortola, will provide island hospitality to ensure your needs are met. And she is also quite an artist of the beauty of Tortola. Donna exhibits her inner most feelings on her canvases scattered about her Villa. So, for a most memorable vacation, which binds island hospitality with nature's magnificence within an oasis of civilization, this is it.
BEYOND OUR EPECTATIONS
Sterling House is truly a spectacular property. Donna has just started renting the whole property. From the moment we arrived the sheer beauty of this place struck us. The villa is designed to take in every view. The inside is as beautiful as the outside and so comfortable. We are three families that travel together to many places and have never stayed in a place that has such fine accommodations. As soon as you arrive the housekeepers, Jeannie and Greta are totally at your service and make you feel so at home. Donna could not do enough for us. Better yet, there is a very good restaurant a 2-minute walk from the villa. Extra towels, ice, etc. delivered right away when ever we wanted them… This was like staying at a fine hotel; only it was a private house with great service. I was lulled away every night by the waves and the comfort of this place. The beach is beautiful, the place is fantastic, and the people made us teary eyed when we left. I cannot say enough good things about Sterling House. I just hope too many people do not discover it so that I can come back next year!!!!
Stunning! Tortola is paradise
The most relaxing vacation I have ever been on. The house and views are STUNNING! This was my first visit to Tortola, and I could not get over how safe the entire island is compared to other islands that I have visited. My most enjoyable activity was to watch the sunset from the pool or verandas (with drinks of course!). Jeanie and Greta were so accommodating! I have been home a day and already miss it! Donna's attention to detail and the immaculate condition of the house was appreciated. I loved the artwork throughout the house. I will see you next year!

With an indelible view of the ocean, naturalistic landscape, and gorgeous sunsets the Sterling House offers peace, serenity, privacy and tranquility on this awesome island of Tortola. Perched on the north end of Long Bay, the villa sports two very upscale comfortable master bedrooms along with a common area containing a kitchen, living room and sporting excellent views of the ocean and neighboring islands. The main master bedroom includes a shower area nearly the size of a hotel room with open access to the semi-private pool which looks out onto the ocean. Beach chairs and rafts are included in the stay and make for the feeling of home. BQ chicken and great rum punch await on the beach at Smuggler’s Cove – an absolute must. Snorkeling is great and water remarkably calm at Marina Cay – a must visit. Take Ridge Road to capture the beautiful vistas.
We recently returned from 5 glorious nights in the lovely Sterling House. It is literally right on the water, and to sit on the beautiful spacious balcony in the morning enjoying our breakfast, or drinking wine and watching the sunset in the evening, was just heaven. We slept in our wonderfully comfortable king-sized bed listening to the waves crashing, and it was absolutely awesome. The sweet owner, Donna, would check on us every day to see if there was anything we needed, but also gave us all of the privacy we desired. We decided that we didn’t want to rent a car (so that we didn’t need someone to volunteer to be a designated driver at dinner!), so Donna set us up with a great taxi driver, Eric. The Sterling House was every bit as beautiful (or more) than the photos, and we look forward to returning again soon!
We recently stayed at the Sterling House and had a wonderful time. There were 8 of us , but the villa could easily accommodate 10 or 12. The design and layout are incredible and it has EVERYTHING that you could possibly want. Every suite has it’s own unique qualities and each has magnificent views of the ocean. From the huge kitchen to the grill and pool, everything is top of the line. The owner, Donna Sterling, is wonderful to work with and was very helpful in arranging everything that we needed. There are 2 restaurants within close walking distance, Also, we would recommend The Sugar Mill for dinner…..you will need transportation as it is about a mile away. We are looking forward to returning next year!
Words can’t describe how unbelievable this house was!! We were stunned by our view and the beauty of this home. It was exactly as it appears in the pics online. We never saw more than 20 people at a time on the whole beach! So very peaceful and we immersed ourselves in the life on the island. Donna was great to work with and very helpful. Jeannie met us with great big hugs at the house when we arrived and made us feel right at home. Amazing and we would recommend this house to rent for anyone!! Trip of a lifetime!! And to top it all off, our son asked the girl of his dreams to marry him while we were there and she said “YES”!!
Just loved this place. Amazing views from a movie set. Great location with fabulous restaurants close by. Check out Bananakit, the Clubhouse, and the Sugar Mill restaurants. All with great ambiance and terrific food!!!! The property was immaculate, and the service was 5 Star. The place honestly looks better than the photos. It was very comfortable and well maintained. Centrally located and easy to get everywhere. Just as comfortable as our home. Everything was thought of. Donna could not have been more helpful. This truly was a trip of our lifetime that we enjoyed beyond compare. We hope to come back as soon as possible!
