Just above the Long Bay Village is the Murray House, with its relaxed airy feel and easy access to the lovely Long Bay Beach.  The view is awesome looking out to Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Cay and islets beyond.  The Murray House has been recently decorated and offers great outdoor living with its three pavilions surrounding the pool deck.

From the driveway, you enter the Great Room, with its sumptuous cushioned elephant bamboo furniture.  There are three sets of glass doors, which open out onto a covered deck.  Enjoy a book in the quiet shade of the house, and there is a second dining table and chairs. The wrap around porch leads to the pool deck with loungers and chairs, and is partially cover from the sun! 

Leading off the pool deck is the full kitchen at the Murray House, laundry facilities are just off the kitchen along with a half bathroom. The BBQ is under cover and adjacent to the covered dining area.

The Master Suite is on the ground floor, next to the pool. There is a King Four-Poster bed in elephant bamboo, with a private porch with chairs and ottomans. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and twin basins. To the other bedrooms, you follow steps from the pool which lead up to two further bedroom suites.  There is a shared deck where you can look over the pool and onward to the ocean. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, in the second suite there is a private outdoor stone-wall shower.

We thoroughly enjoyed our extended vacation at the Murray House on the West End above Long Bay! The location on Tortola can’t be beat -- a five-minute walk to Long Bay Beach, a ten-minute drive to Smuggler’s Cove Beach, short walks to the 1748 Restaurant and Beach Bar at Long Bay Beach Resort and the Tropical Fusion Restaurant; we even took a morning jog to Sebastian’s for breakfast. With a short drive over the island to the south shore, you have Soper’s Hole – with Omar’s Fusion, Omar’s Cafe, Pusser’s, various shopping, and a Riteway grocery store. A 25-minute drive to Road Town offers many opportunities for restaurants, bars, and shopping. The driveway and road to the Murray House are both very steep, but after exploring the rest of the island, we realized that we had one of the easier locations to reach after all.
The villa has plenty of space to spread out as described, with so many places to relax inside and out. The large kitchen is great for preparing your own meals, with all the major appliances plus a microwave, toaster, blender, and coffee maker. It does lack a few of the small essentials (a complete set of measuring cups and measuring spoons, kitchen sponges, only three steak knives). We used the outside grill several times and happily dined al fresco at one of the two dining sets every time we ate at home. Nothing beats the sound of waves crashing and the sunset view during dinner! There was no satellite or cable TV available, but who wants to watch TV when you overlook a beautiful tropical beach with views of Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Spit, and several other small islands. We loved keeping the kitchen and living room doors propped open for the beautiful Caribbean breezes throughout the day. We especially enjoyed lounging in the pool and outside chaises, and yet the air conditioning unit in our bedroom was greatly appreciated for a comfortable sleep each night. The master suite had an incredible amount of storage and closet space. There are no window shades or curtains in the master bedroom, so some folks might be uncomfortable depending on who else is staying with them in the villa, as all outside areas can look directly into the bedroom. Plenty of quality bath towels were provided as well as beach towels and a couple of beach chairs. We were thrilled that mosquitos were not an issue at all (during our February/March visit), but ants in the kitchen quickly taught us that we had to be vigilant and not leave a single crumb or drop of liquid on the counter. The property manager, Jon, and his assistant, Jude, were both so helpful in responding to any issues or questions we had and making sure we had everything we needed or desired. Housekeeping came every few days to change the sheets, wash the towels, and do general cleaning, and the swimming pool was cleaned a couple times during our stay.
We highly recommend and would definitely return to Murray House in the future, and Allison Tomes was an absolute pleasure to work with in planning our vacation!
