Photos and Description of this Montserrat holiday villa

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4

Spanish style villa located on the cliffs just 40 feet above the ocean. Private setting with magnificent views of the coastline, tropical foliage covered mountains, and the islands of Nevis and Rodonda. From the very private pool or covered patio, enjoy spectacular sunsets on the ocean. The property is landscaped with lush tropical terraced gardens that include citrus trees, mango, coconut palms, hibiscus and numerous other flowering plants. The villa's living room has window walls that open to the covered patio, set up for outdoor dining and overlooks the pool 5 steps below. The kitchen, well equipped with new appliances, great cookware, and spices to use and enjoy, is open to the dining and living rooms. Its windows overlook a courtyard garden filled with bougainvillea, hibiscus and crotons. The master bedroom has a king bed with sliding glass doors to a balcony-patio overlooking the pool. The hammocks at the ocean edge offer a shady spot to enjoy the views.

It's a short walk to Lime Kiln Beach, or a 10-minute drive to other beaches. Restaurants and shopping are within a short drive. Montserrat seems far away from the cares of the world. It's lush green mountains, exotic beaches and friendly people provide a safe and secure vacation spot for everyone. The slow and easy pace of life on Montserrat is a large part of its overwhelming charm. With activities such as hiking, fishing, scuba diving, or just reading in a hammock by the ocean's edge, there is always something to do.

St Patrick's Week, and Christmas offer a great time to enjoy the music and culture of Montserrat. Many activities surround both holidays.

We came, we saw, we swam, we sweated, we relaxed, we ate, we slept, we read, we took pictures, we beached, we scubaed, we snorkeled, we ate more, we slept more, we honeymooned. We appreciated the villa Tan Ry Doon.

When I first saw the gate to Tan Ry Doon I was immediately taken back to Frances Hodgson Burnett's 'Secret Garden'. And when I opened it, I was there.

Dazzling cannot describe the sensual beauty that seeps into your soul.....

...the sweet tasting mangoes that grow right outside the veranda.

...the thundering waves slapping the beach in a booming rhythm.

...the night peepers that lull you to sleep and the songbirds that wake you to a new glorious day.

...the delicious fragrance of tropical flowers tickling your nostrils at every moment.

...the tropical winds that blow through your hair.

...the endless cerulean sea with rainbows above it and upon it.

...the explosion of multi-colored blossoms that inspire the tranquil atmosphere of

'Tan Ry Doon'

What else can I say?

Gorgeous! Breathtaking! Peaceful! Paradise!

My husband and I loved every minute of our stay and we will definitely return to Jim & Norman's

Dear Jim & Norm,

You have a fabulous place here, so peaceful & relaxing. Hearing the ocean 24/7 is a real treat. I now have a new appreciation for the roads back home in VT! I really enjoyed this lifestyle- I can't believe our 2 weeks have come to an end so quickly.....

Jim & Norm,

J & I both agree-this is by far the best vacation we have ever taken. We have so many wonderful memories to sustain us while we await our next visit to this beautiful paradise. The view, the beautiful gardens & the very comfortable & accommodating home provided us with everything we needed and served to feed our desires to be full time islanders. We met so many friendly island folks & expats who we'll never forget. Bruce Farara who took us on his boat fishing & went all around the island for the bird's eye view of the mighty 'V'. Trevor, owner of the Royal Palm Club, which we highly recommend for dinner. Menu is limited but atmosphere more than makes up for that! John Pont's hideaway restaurant on the beach @ Little Bay has a delightful Sunday BBQ.

Thank you again for letting us stay in your home. You truly have a slice of heaven here on Montserrat.

Jim & Norman,

We arrived in Antigua late on the 4th and bright and early arrival on the 5th in Montserrat. Greeted with a breathtaking landing- they are masters of their craft. George greeted us at the airport and gave us a tour of the island.

When we arrived at Tan Ry Doon we were greeted by Lydia- what a saint. She was so welcoming! The phone lines were out during our stay so Lydia left us with her cell phone- certainly above and beyond what we expected! Lydia's gesture was echoed by others hospitality throughout our stay here! Everyone was so kind. We were fortunate to meet Gulbert, the gardner- it is obvious he loves what he does. The gardens are breathtaking at any time of day here at Tan Ry Doon.

One of the things we loved most about our time here has been peacefulness and internal beauty of the island. The Tan Ry Doon experience is so difficult to find this day and age. This trip was our Honeymoon, and we hope to be back to celebrate many more years of happiness here.

Our 2nd visit to Montserrat & Tan Ry Doon

Jim & Norm

Gerri and I are just about packed for our trip back. We are heading to Florida before we head for home and begin our house building project. Our stay has been as memorable as last year. This visit we were able to meet and spend time with a turtle biologist from the UK, hiked from Drummonds around Silver Hill to Margurerita Bay, 6 Hours, with Scriber, who also took us on the oriole trail. We snorkeled Woodlands and Rendezvous beaches, made and ate bread fruit, sour sop and sugar apple. Dinned at Olveston House, Gourmet Gardens and Tina's. Met the owner of the cement plant who took us to the top of Garibaldi hill in his 4x4. Watched the turtles come to nest at Lime Kiln, and of course soaked up the sun and beautiful pool that you have improved.

Tan Ry Doon is the place to be.

I'm sitting outside at the table looking out over the ocean, watching the sunrise and I can't believe I'm here. Like all great, rare dreams it's nearly over. We're flying out this morning, and as we're getting things together to take our final drive to the airport, I'm still a little amazed by how beautiful this place is. Every morning when we awoke the first thing we saw was the ocean. It's got to be the greatest view on this island (from Tan Ry Doon).

We've loved everything about our time here- especially the house, the pool and the peace and tranquility that come from having such a private, fully outfitted villa where we have everything we need and don't need to leave for anything. When we have left it's been to visit the great snorkeling sites, the beaches, the volcano, to visit with Peter & Ken, or to eat at the Attic or Tina's for really great food.

It's been a fantastic destination honeymoon for E and I and we thank you both for the rare gift of being here.

Thanks for everything,

One of the 'Best' homes we've stayed in on Montserrat! You guys thought of everything- very exciting stay- 2 explosions from the volcano! Very sad to see poor Plymouth! But now there's the 'New' Montserrat!

Thank you tons......

Jim & Norm,

Where do we start! We had such a great time at Tan Ry Doon. What a wonderful slice of heaven you have here. Spent our days lounging by the pool & walking the gardens. It's a little different than our Minnesota garden! The people of Montserrat are the friendliest we have ever met. We truly enjoyed talking with Lydia- what a wonderful lady!! We loved the frogs that visited us every night- man they are big. Next time we want to see a chicken frog. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will be back!

G + I began to acclimate ourselves and now it's time to return to NY.

We immersed ourselves in Montserrat life, no TV, hiking Jack Boy Hill, swimming Carr's Bay, kayaking, diving, snorkeling, St.Peters festival, dined with the Montserratians at the old school. Took hundreds of pictures and videos. Hope to get a few to you. Hiked the lahar to the old golf course & beach. Tina's for lunch twice, Olveston House was great. What to say is 11 days was not long enough. The villa is all you said it would be. We are very satisfied. Would love to return so don't be surprised if we call for next summer. Pray the gods keep the volcano quiet.

Watching cruise ships and the sailboats go by

Searching for the Southern Cross up in the sky

Thinking of the Green Flash- oh it makes me cry

Limin' here on Montserrat

The old volcano, he don't scare me, even though

Any minute he could just decide to blow

I'm hoping that the northern trade winds still will blow

And keep me clean on Montserrat

Montserrat! The roads they really all go up and down

Montserrat! Ash has covered Plymouth town

Montserrat! Limin' at the White & Brown Villa on Montserrat

Hope you like chicken 'cause that's all they've got

Except for liquor- there is plenty to be bought!

You'll have to learn to get along on what you've brought

Eating here on Montserrat

The taxi honks and passes blindly on the bend

And stops right on the centerline to greet a friend

I haven't seen a guard rail-Ay!-my life will end

Driving here on Montserrat

Montserrat! The roads they really all go up and down

Montserrat! Ash has covered Plymouth town

Montserrat! Limin' at the White & Brown Villa on Montserrat

Bananquits will wake you at the dawn's first light

Crazy roosters crowing all day and night

The rare endangered oriole is quite a sight (I'm told!)

Birding here on Montserrat

Sipping a rum punch on black volcanic sand

Gazing at your girl who's golden brown and tanned

Learning how to live in this exotic land

Limin' here on Montserrat

Montserrat! The roads they really all go up and down

Montserrat! Ash has covered Plymouth town

Montserrat! Limin' at the White & Brown Villa on Montserrat

Limin' here on Montserrat

Kicking back on Montserrat

Beautiful Home, Gardens and Views!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed 9 nights at Tan Ry Doon and enjoyed every moment! The home and gardens are beautiful and well-maintained. The owners were very responsive to our questions before and after arriving at the property. We had telephone numbers for their agent as well as maid if we needed anything. We were met at the airport and driven to the villa where our rental car had been delivered. There is a grocery store, produce stand and restaurants close by. We loved the walls of sliding glass doors that could be opened for true indoor/outdoor living. The outdoor shower was a treat. Generally, we would leave in the morning to spend the day exploring. As the days passed, I found myself wanting to get home sooner in the day to spend more time relaxing in the villa and gardens! I recommend this property whole-heartedly!
