LIMIN'HOUSE is a luxury rental Caribbean villa located on the lush West End of Tortola, in the BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS.
The villa sits on a hillside, overlooking SOPER'S HOLE and MARINA set amidst jasmine and bougainvillea.
Upon entering you will pass through grand wooden doors set in a stone arch reminiscent of Caribbean ruins, then on through a canopy of palms and into a new tranquility.
Revive your body and soul beneath the cascading waters of the outdoor stone showers and gaze at the Milky Way or the lights of the yachts in the bay below.
Lounge in the pool sipping tropical drinks while listening to music from the LIMIN' HOUSE eclectic collection of jazz, reggae, blues, world, rock or classical.
With meals prepared in the carefully appointed kitchen or on the gas barbecue, you can dine on the covered verandah and view the sparkling lights of St. Thomas in the distance.
The furnishings are all of top quality. There are unique pieces by contemporary names such as Michael Taylor, McGuire, and Pompeii. Also included, are a few antique pieces of Balinese, Italian and French origin. The overall feel is elegant, but completely relaxed and very low maintenance. Wood, metal and canvas pieces were chosen for durability in the tropical climate.
Retire in the casual elegance of the living room or on any of the private patios and balconies to reflect upon a memorable day.
After filling your senses, fall asleep in the coolness of one of the four air conditioned bedrooms. All have ceiling fans and private patios or balconies. Cable TV is available in the livingroom and master bedroom.
No matter how much time you spend limin', rest assured you will leave LIMIN'HOUSE with your body warmed by the sun and your spirit renewed with a peace that will linger long after the scent of jasmine has faded.

“Perfect post-sail stay”
We stayed at Limin house for just a couple days after a week of sailing. Had 9 people with the group but only 6 stayed at this house. When the others saw the place, Limin house quickly became the place where we spent all of our time. The pictures don't do it justice - it's just an amazing place. The owner and Debs could not have been more helpful We would definitely stay again, but would stay longer next time.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for that great review. We hope you will come back! Susan
If you want a luxury vacation in the BVI, go no further than the limin house. It is gorgeous in every way, spacious and appointed with more comforts than you have in your home. It is no wonderful that you want to stay there,swim in the pool, grill out and enjoy the bay below. so if you are thinking about accommodations in the BVI, look no farther. The owner and manager were just wonderful and making the reservation was easy. If I am ever in the BVI, the limin house will be where I stay.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for that great review. We love sharing Limin'House and are so happy when are guests get everything they expected and more! Hope to see you back again! Susan
“A Week in Paradise!”
We cannot say enough good things about Limin House and the kindness of Debs the property manager when we recently spent a week on Tortola. What a place! We were pretty sure we were going to love it based on the pictures we had reviewed prior to booking and it truly lived up to everything it promised. The view, the breeze, the pool, the bedrooms, the open spaces, the convenience - everything was perfect! And knowing that Debs was always available to answer any questions helped make the entire experience even more enjoyable. Don't hesitate - stay at Limin House! You won't regret it!
Response from the owner Thank you so much for that great review. Love to share Limin'House and hear that it met or exceeded our guests' expectations! Hope to see you back again. All the best, Susan
“Loved this house!”
The layout of Limin house was perfect, lots of private areas to chill and a lovely open air veranda to come together. The attention to detail was noted from the great margarita and ice machines to flashlights in all rooms. Loved to be able to make coffee in the bedroom and the sit on the balcony early in the morning and watch the scene unfold below. We loved the huge outside BBQ and took advantage of having half our dinners in. Pool was fantastic with great views and gardens all around the property were lovely. Outdoor showers were great anytime of day! We had issues with our main fridge, but Deb (Manager) was very attentive and helpful and brought us ice if we needed. The freezer worked and there was a bar fridge by the pool so we all got lots of exercise. We understand things go wrong and it is hard to get parts etc on the island. The house more than made up for this and we didn't really care too much. we hope to be back in 2 years and would definitely stay at Limin House.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for that great review! So nice to be understanding with the challenges that sometimes arise even with guests in house! We appreciate your patience. Can't wait for you to return. All the best to you and your family! Susan
“A special treat for a special lady”
For our 30th anniversary I wanted to do something special. I spent ages looking for the perfect spot and was drawn to Limin House after reading the reviews and doing some research on Tortola. The family were given envelopes for "Secret Island" and told to show up at the airport on a certain date and time. After all of the build up and suspense were they disappointed? No way - Limin House was simply perfect. So relaxing and comfortable. The views are truly spectacular. The sound system is set up so that the sound level can be controlled all along the house which was a treat. Loved the pool, the margarita machine, the grill, the outdoor shower. Absolutely no complaints at all. The access road to the house presents a challenging drive culminating in a very tight and steep sloped driveway, but this is a small price to pay for the joy that awaits once you enter Limin House. Susan was a treat to deal with and her Manager, Debs, was great. The waiting bottle of Sebastian's rum was a treat and greatly appreciated. We followed several of Susan's recommendations (airport, car hire, personal chef, sailing etc.) and they were all first class. Tortola is now my favorite Caribbean island. Admittedly the restaurant service is extremely slow but remember you are on island time. If you don't like it then manage the situation by sending an advance party to preorder the drinks, then when they arrive place your second order. I've traveled all over the world (+50 countries) and typically prefer to travel to a new country or at least a new destination rather than attempt a repeat, but I will make an exception for Limin House. We all want to return as quickly as possible.
Response from the owner That was such a wonderful review. I am so happy that your anniversary was everything you expected it to be. Thank you so very much and we look forward to having you come back! All the best to you and your family.
A group of 10 of us stayed at this well situated house atop the hills of West End, Tortola and brought in 2014 enjoying it's never tiring view. The sunset from the Limin' House has to be one of the top 10 attractions of Tortola. The amenities are aplenty and I simply loved it's grill - in fact we cooked a majority of our meals on it. The Pool is sublime! You in fact have to coerce yourself to go explore the rest of the island as it's easy just to get caught limin'!:) The entire staff at the Limin' House are really easy to work with and they really make it an absolute breeze. What are you waiting for? We found paradise here...you can too!
Response from the owner Thank you so much for the great review! We look forward to your return!
“Couldn't ask for anything more!”
Susan and Debs were excellent! Very accomodating and friendly. The house is much bigger in person and none of the four bedrooms can hear noise from another bedroom. The outdoor speakers in the common room and out to the pool were a great add. The outdoor grill is also very large and perfect for our group (7 People) who only went out once for dinner. Highly recommended!
Response from the owner Thanks so much, Eric for your great review. We hope to see you return to Limin'House in the future!
“Most relaxing vacation of my life!”
Pictures do not do this home justice. The area is fabulous, views are breath-taking. Already scheduling for next year and cannot wait!
Response from the owner Thank you, Scott! We look forward to having you come back next year and becoming one of our "family"!
“Perfect layout for group stays with all amenities one could wish”
Limin House overlooks, in my opinion, one of the best views on Tortola. The pool is delicious day or night, the facilities, bedrooms and baths are well thought out, beautifully appointed and so convenient. We enjoyed lots of family style meals, rest, relaxation and our jaunts over to other islands, snorkeling, swimming are all within easy reach by ferry or car. Truly a wonderful stay in a gorgeous location. The owner and staff are beyond compare! A place to return too!
Response from the owner Thank you so much for your review! It was a pleasure having you as our guests. I hope to make it to Tennessee one of these days and stay with you! We will look forward to your return!
The LiminHouse is about 150 to 200 meters above the harbor and overlooks the West End ferry dock, Sophers Hole, and St. John. This location provides for stunning morning panoramas that continue until the sun sets, replaced by the gentle sights and sounds of night and the highly visible Milky Way above. The sounds of the harbor and the ferries, the silent movement of sailboats, the flickering of the sun off the waves and the gentle rain squalls provide the visuals and the melodies that define a Caribbean paradise. The house's location, design, landscaping and overall ambiance is simply unmatchable in how it takes advantage of the vistas and nature, yet remains unobtrusive. One can sit on the veranda for hours and simply observe. My wife preferred the pool to simply float away the hours. A great beach is but a short drive away, while others are only 20 minutes' drive. Restaurants abound, far different than our first trip to Tortola 26 years ago. Susan, the owner, has provided for all guest needs including the niceties one expects or at least hopes for: beach towels, bath robes, soaps, laundry, CDs and Dvds to play, gas grill, flotation devices for the pool, and many others. Her suggestions to make your stay better, where to rent your car and where to eat should be followed. The bar was well stocked and we left bottles to cover what we had consumed. Debra the manager of LiminHouse was a great help in getting us situated. Indie the housekeeper had the house in perfect order when we arrived and cleaned up our messes when she came to clean. Steve the gardener, is quiet and unassuming, but a wealth of knowledge. Jerry of the car rental agency is a patient and kind man, as are his employees. At the end of our time at LiminHouse, we asked our son for his perspective on the trip. He said, "The perfect vacation." Tom, Mireille, and alex January 2013
