Affordable accommodation in Tortola

Hello fellow travelers,

My finace and I are thinking about going to Tortola in early Deecember before we continue on to St.Lucia where we will be spending Christmas. We are thinking about spending 2-3 days there.

Surfing Josiahs and Car Rental

Just wanted to find out if anyone knew of a decent affordable car rental place near the ferry landing?? We are coming to surf Josiahs and are not sure if there is anywhere to stay where we will not need a car! Has anyone stayed at Lambert Beach Resort or Josiahs Bay Inn to surf...will we need a car? We are trying to figure out logistics! Thanks:)

Getting to West End/Road Town - And Things to Do?

Don't judge but I'm making a cruise stop in the US Virgin Islands on St. Thomas. I've been there before and would prefer to catch a ferry to West End or Road Town. I see some daily ferries running but figured I'd check if there were other ways to get there that might be more fun.

Also, is West End a good destination? Anything to see or do there? If we stop there instead of Road Town we'd have a bit more time to explore rather than going all the way to Road Town. Thanks in advance!!

first time bvi: BUDGET guest house and itinerary?

Heading to the BVI soon, April 2013 but can't find what I consider a budget guest house as they all seem to charge $100-130/night and upwards. Does anyone know of a real budget guest house where I can secure a room for one for $50/night or less?
Also, what itinerary would you suggest with only 5 days or so with desire to see most if not all the islands of the group?
Thanks for help.

Brewers Bay Tortola too rough in winter for snorkeling?

I would like to camp at Brewers Bay, Tortola, Dec. 16-19. But I have been reading about some beaches being too rough for snorkeling in winter. Is Brewers Bay one of these? Should I stay elsewhere on the island, where it is calmer in Dec.? I am on a budget, $50 or less a night.

Brewers Bay Campground on Tortola?

I would like to stay on Tortola beginning Dec. 16 and leaving Dec. 19. I have researched the campground at Brewers Bay and I am prepared for their lax service, etc. (I have been to Tortola before, driven by and seen it.) I have been calling for a few months now, but cannot get an answer on the phone, only left voicemails that are not returned. Should I worry, or just show up? The thing that concerns me is that it will be getting close to Christmas. I want a bare site--bringing all my own…

One week in The British Virgin Islands...

In March next year I will doing Yacht Week with a group of friends around the British Virgin Islands. Afterwards my friends need to return home but I decided to stay for an extra week on the Islands.

From what I can understand there are three types of accommodation in BVI, staying on yacht, staying in a 5 star hotel, or camping at little beach campgrounds.

The obvious choice for me is the campgrounds although after looking through the websites the campground receive seriously mixed reviews. I…
