Beautiful spot

Spectacular views Beautiful pool. Very comfortable sleeping quarters and Eva was very accommodating! A wonderful trip and hopefully we’ll go back. That’s the place to stay.

Perfect for our small group

My husband and I and another couple stayed here. It was the perfect size and location for our needs. The views are breath taking, the pool was perfect for cooling and the kitchen was perfect for group cooking.

Eva was very kind and gave us tours of her beautiful gardens and brought us fresh fruit and vegetables for us to enjoy.

I will most definitely stay here again. Thank you Eva!!

Best stay on Tortola

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at this beautiful property. Pictures do not do it justice! The pool, hot tub, the views, ocean breezes...just amazing. The host, Eva, is an amazing person. So kind, knowledgeable, helpful and caring about her guests. Just an absolute joy and easily my favorite host. As a bonus, her dogs were welcome visitors that would swing by to say hello. I hope to return often to this oasis.

Magic Castle is perfect!!!

Our family of 4 stayed at Magic Castle for a family vacation and it was perfect!! The house is very spacious for 4 people. The master bedroom is absolutely breathtaking! Everyone really enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi with the amazing views.

The house is very close to the airport which is very convenient. On our way to the house we stopped by the supermarket and got everything we needed. When we got to the house, Eva checked us in with Benny and Stanley (her two adorable, super friendly and very well behaved dogs). She gave us a very detailed tour of the property and throughout our stay was always checking if we needed anything.. Eva is the best host!

During one of the nights we lost power for 1-2 hours but Eva has a full generator that powers the whole house which we were not expecting!

I can’t tell you how perfect this house is. You will not regret booking it for your next trip to Tortola. We will definitely be coming back to Magic Castle.

Amazing home away from home!

My father, brother and I were on Tortola looking for a property to buy that we could use with our families. We used the Magic Castle as our base. After 3 days of looking at lots of properties, we realized it was Eva’s place we wanted! Alas, it’s not for sale. The place is beautiful with gorgeous views. It’s not a fancy resort, it is a warm beautiful home. We highly recommend it! Eva is an absolutely amazing host and we all fell in love with her. She is a wonderful, kind and loving soul and by the time we left, it felt like she was part of our family. I will be returning with my wife and kids soon!

Magical!

Magic Castle surpassed all of our expectations! Beautiful home, fantastic location, and lovely Eva! You'll not want for anything when you stay at Magic Castle. The accommodations are excellent and the location is secluded yet close by to Tortola's other sights. We miss just lounging about with our morning coffee and sitting in the hot tub in the evening.

Beautiful spot and a great value

This villa is perfect for a romantic, private get-away. And for what you pay (very reasonable rates) you get Eva, the villa owner, thrown in, who lives very nearby. Her advice for dining and activities is a plus and she is just a wonderful, friendly person as well. She made our stay more special.

The beach is nearby, (better to drive than to walk). But better to explore this tourist friendly island. We would go back in a heart beat as they say.

Want to make a magical never-to-be-forgotten memory? Come here.

How to begin? There is something so truly special about this place, it's almost impossible to describe. You feel it the moment you set eyes on it. What you see is truly amazing. The home itself is spectacular; beautiful architecture, crazy views everywhere you turn, the kitchen, the pool, the outdoor shower. To wake up in the Master Bedroom and look out over Little Bay from your bed, is totally spectacular. The beach was basically private, a short walk or very short drive down the hill. Tortola itself is a lovely little island - the residents were friendly and always helpful, driving was an adventure to be sure, there was a convenient grocery store and plenty of good restaurants.

Here's the thing though, the Magic Castle Villa is so much more than a list of its attractive parts and amenities. First there's Eva. We love Eva. As all the other reviews have said, she really is the heart and soul of the place. In addition to being very helpful and knowledgeable, she's so kind, such a warm spirit, and it's that spirit (at least we've decided this) that gives the place that special something. Rocket and Stanley (the totally cool and not at all intrusive dogs) were great also! My girlfriend was skeptical at first when I found this place, and then when I sent her to the website she was thinking "Magic Castle? Oh come on." The pictures were pretty amazing, but she's a skeptic by nature, and needed to see it for herself. We turned that corner onto the property, and we could literally feel stress melting off of us. We had a difficult few months before our visit and to see Tiff lay in the hammock and truly relax all week, was worth ten times the price.

I'm telling you, do whatever you have to do to visit this place. If it's booked for the next 200 days, get in there on day 201 - I promise you won't regret it. I've been a lot of places in my life, and this was the highlight.

We were there for five days and I can honestly say that the last moments were as magical as the first. We look so forward to returning to this wonderful place and seeing our new friend Eva (and Rocket and Stanley). Tiff and I talked about this before we left - how much we wanted to come back - and we decided that we'd try, but even if we couldn't it would be okay. We had to leave, but we knew that this was one of those places that, even when you walk away from it, it always stays with you.

A Dream Come True

Magic Castle was a "Dream Come True"! The house and grounds were absolutely beautiful. The kitchen was well equipped and Eve was a fabulous hostess. The view overlooking Little Bay was breath taking. Little Bay beach was one of the most gorgeous beaches on the island. Close to home and very private with lots of sun and shade if needed. There are great restaurants nearby and grocery stores if you decide to home cook . The pool and the hot tub were wonderful to relax in after a fun day at the beach. Can't wait to come back again!

Great stay

We spent 5 days on our family trip (children 9 and 12 years). We highly recommend this property. The location is extraordinary, very private, on a hill overlooking the sea. The house is spacious, we loved the pool and the hot tub. The grounds are beautiful. The beach is a short walk down the hill and it was our preferred beach on the island - great sand, virtually deserted most of the time, reasonable snorkeling and gentle waves good for some boogie-boarding.

Eva is a great host and made all the arrangements seamless.

Hope to be back.

Another perfect stay

This was my 2nd visit to the Magic Castle and it was just like the first visit....Perfect.

The location is beautiful overlooking Little Bay, very private and the house is VERY well equiped with everything you would need from bathroom essentials to kitchen applicances, spices, utensils, beach towels, cooler, snorkel equipment and more. We found ourselves enjoying our evening meals overlooking the caribbean and then relaxing in the hot tub along with a beautiful nights sleep. The hillside location of this home provides constant tradewinds. Eva is available should you have any questions, she is a very gracious host who holds a special place in our hearts. We have already booked our next vacation to return. This home has something very special about it, the name says it all.

Truly Magical!!

Perfect, Relaxing Getaway

My husband and I stayed at the Magic Castle Villa for 3 nights. This place is truly breathtaking and everything we could have wanted and more. It's private, spacious and well equipped with everything you need. We loved everything about it. Going to sleep listening to the waves and enjoying the constant breeze was so relaxing. It's just a short drive to a wonderful, beautiful beach that we had to ourselves each time we went. It also had great snorkeling which we really enjoyed. Eva is such a wonderful, kind person, and we truly enjoyed getting to know her and Rocket (her lovely dog!). She is extremely helpful, but not at all intrusive. Eva has thought of everything - all the details really make the place special. Our only regret was not being able to stay there longer. It was the perfect place for a romantic anniversary vacation.

Wonderful

This review is slightly late but none the less, my wife and I truely enjoyed our stay enhanced by the owner Eva and her attention to us as bisitors. She met us at the airport upon flight arrival, directed us as we followed in our rental car to the villa. She provided a complete overview of the villa and amenties. We found the villa in spectacular shape, clean and functional. It has a view of the caribbean that was awesome. Can't thank you enough Eva for your generosity and grace. We will see you again and Levi says hello!

A tremendous week with friends

My wife, and friends spent a terrific week at Eva's peaceful and beautiful home with a breathtaking view of the ocean. Eva was a gracious host ready to assist us with any need we had and information on where to go . It was hard to leave.

we have visited quite a few of the Caribbean islands, but this was our favorite for relaxing and having our very own little paradise.

Thank you Eva. Michael & Anne

Exceeded every expectation! A million dollar view and a most gracious host!

MCV was a perfect place to relax and be amazed by one of the most incredible views imaginable. Eva (the owner) was SO gracious and helpful in getting us settled in!
