FIrst, so you can get an accurate read on our review of Kerensa, heres the kind of people we are, married, 30yrs old, been on vacation to 5 star resorts and also have roughed it a time or two on vacation, so we appreciate what its like to be spoiled at the four seasons, or rough it and still have a great vacation.
So initial impressions/ memories we take away from Kerensa …

Positive… Ben the owner is so nice, happy to accommodate you so your vacation can be whatever you want it to be. Cant say enough how kind he is. Call him during the day to ask him something, help, advice on what to do for the day, where to go…. he's there for ya.. like your own personal concierge. THANKS BEN!!
House and entire property has such a wonderful "charm" to it, that we fell in love with. There seems to be much attention to the detail of the decorating of the house, which gives it a specific feel to it, that you don't soon forget. Loved it. Loved it. Loved it.

Negative…..take aways from our stay regarding Kerensa.. nothing. fantastic.

Now a bit more of a breakdown for you..
Positive- Once again Ben is so kind and helpful, met us and "escorted" us to the house.
We had ordered groceries from Bobbys Marketplace,.. they were supposed to deliver that day, (they didn't…till the next day.. wouldn't recommend them, but perhaps we just had one of the bad experiences, ) but Ben was so kind to run out to pick us up some essentials so we didn't have to go back out to find a store once we had arrived. So very kind of him.

Ben also recommended to us a fantastic beach not a soul on it, (actually he recommended one place.... but we ended up finding trunk bay instead.. (right next to the one he recommended, and it was all we could ever ask for) Ask Ben for directions… remember always ask the locals for those hidden gems, and then go check 'em out!
Peter island spa.. we've been to 5star spas.. Hawaii, Bora Bora, etc.. and I don't know the rating peter island gets.. 4 or 5 star.. (there is a BIG difference) and I'd only give it a 4 star rating. Decent property, just the quality of the facilities and the staff especially .. was very much 4 star. Long way away from that 5 star rating. Not impressed. Would I still recommend it? Well.. they are about the best as far as spas go in the area.. so if you want a spa experience.. then go, its not horrible.. just not 5 star.
BananaKeet restaurant… very awesome view.. food, very very good.. property itself.. a bit run down.. old school.. but not in the good way… felt like i was at a mom and pop hotel/restaurant in Treasure Island Florida. BUT.. I would recommend it.. can't complain about awesome view and awesome food.
Brewers Bay beach was a very quiet place to go if you just wanna get to a beach real quick.. (about a 5 minute drive) if your thinking of not renting a car and that you can just walk to brewers bay.. that would get old in like 5 minutes. Not recommended. Rent a vehicle.
Newly added gate at Kerensa.. loved that feature.. just makes you feel.. not safer.. (cause your already safe) just more private.
Now the question most people would ask.. and want to know the answer to.. do you need a Jeep, or can you get by with a car? I so suppose you could get by with a car. BUT.. I was so glad I chose a jeep. Needed 4x4 one time.. and especially if you wanna go to Trunk Bay.. extra clearance needed. Ask yourself this.. are you actually saving $100 on a rental car, or paying more when you lose time and aggravation from your vacation by getting a flat, or getting stuck?
Cane Garden Bay,.. leave that place for the tourists. Closest place to get a dinner, at the restaurant though. Also groceries and gas station there.

Negative... about the only thing i could have asked for was a king bed instead of a queen. But thats just me, not used to sleeping on a queen. There was a couple small small things with the property,.. nothing really bad or horrible, just little things that were maybe.. more upsetting to discover.. than to actually have to deal with.. so small and minor, but just including so the reader can perhaps put into perspective how minor the negatives are,..…. anyways.. we couldn't get the BBQ to work with the automatic starter on it,.. just needed to turn on the propane tank, and then light it manually with a lighter. No big deal. Mosquitos are a minor problem.. nothin horrible… bug spray is there.. but maybe bring some to be safe, evening time hanging outside you might get like 2-3 bites.. just use some spray and you'll be fine. Always keep the master bedroom area totally locked up so mosquitos don't get in.
Hot water in the shower we found to maybe at times be a little spotty,.. like once or maybe twice it seems the hot water ran out very quick in the shower. Seemed random almost a fluke.


But now back to the positives.. Kerensa is awesome.. its even more awesome in real life than the pictures show. Its so awesome i emailed my buddy who is getting married in may, while i was there, and insisted he go there for his honeymoon, and he booked it within days, and is going in August. And on top of all that, my wife forgot four shirts in the master closet there, and emailed ben after we got home and asked him if he could possibly be so kind to mail them to us, and he did! Hows that for customer service!!!! Just a testament to how kind and accommodating he really is.
Thanks Ben for a awesome stay,
Z+C
final words… go to Kerensa, don't think twice, and spend your days at the pool and trunk bay beach.

“Fabulous views”

Kerensa is nestled away in a super private location and there is no doubt that the views are breath taking. Its peaceful and beautiful to look out to the ocean. The view from the bedroom is stunning too. I probably would of still preferred some form of curtain even just voile panels would be perfect. We were glad to have got a jeep 4x4 as couldn't of managed without this, the track into the property is bumpy and rubbly, the roads are in the mountains, unfortunately due to season we experienced a lot of rain, which made conditions slippery in some places when exploring the island. So definitely a must!

I agree with another reviewer that this is definitely more simple and rustic than the pictures. Ben does state this is a simple property on the site. I think the website pictures are probably from launch. We felt that the property generally could generally do with some maintenance and TLC. Gardens overgrown & weedy, pool needed a good clean, balcony seats broken in bedroom etc.

Facilities are good, TV with DVD, surround sound system was fabulous. Wifi access was great if a little spotty but fab to have it. Cooker and amenities provided were good. Air Con for us was a must. The amount of Mosquitos here is crazy and we just couldn't leave the doors open because of them. Coils and spray is a must!

The Bed is super comfy which was great. As far as the outdoor shower goes, we get the principle behind it and it is aesthetically a nice idea, but practically it didn't work. I dreaded showering and it became a chore doing so outside with the Mosquitos, leaves and everything. Felt more like camping which is not what I want when I am on vacation. We stayed 9 nights too so maybe a few nights would be more bearable. I couldn't wait to get home and shower properly. And in all honesty had I of noticed this properly on the website I probably wouldn't have booked it.

Was a little disappointed with the overall cleanliness, toilet wasn't that clean & appreciate Mosquitos are a huge problem but I really didn't like cleaning them off the headboard and seeing them splattered on the fridge and the walls in our bedroom from previous visitors. For the price per night this is equivalent to staying in a top resort and we just felt it fell short. Had we of stayed & paid for high season we would of been really disappointed.

With regards to the island & property access you really have to be prepared to drive round and explore as amenities aren't lined up on your doorstep, we knew this prior and it's a fun exploring holiday, we drove all round the island and mountains and its beautiful. Cane garden bay is a good local spot for beach, dinner and watching the charter boats and guests come in and out. We used trip adviser for restaurants with everything being specifically located and it was great had some lovely meals. Enjoyed cooking in too.

All in all we had a lovely stay and again the views are breathtaking, it's a wonderful peaceful spot. Ben was a pleasure to deal with prompt and helpful with the booking. With a few good alterations and some well needed TLC I am sure Kerensa really would be paradise.

“A Week in Paradise”

We just enjoyed a week at Kerensa and it was truly wonderful. The views of Brewers Bay, Sharks Bay, and nearby islands were just stunning and the sunsets were breathtaking. There are two rooms separated by an outdoor dining area - one was the kitchen/living area and the other was the bedroom. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets, blankets and pillows were just right. The pool was a wonderful amenity to have. We also made use of the grill. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and some cooking items. Having wi-fi was a great amenity, though sometimes slow or spotty - definitely better than nothing when we wanted to listen to internet radio (surround sound speakers/outdoor speakers were great!) or use our phones/iPads.

Reading the other reviews was very helpful prior to our visit. I agree with another guest that it looked a little more rustic in real life, even though at the same time it did look just like the pictures. We came prepared to be eaten by mosquitoes due to the location of the home (you are basically living in a forest). We had repellent with us and they also provided spray, citronella candles and coils. The mosquitoes left my husband alone but I got over 30 bites. I think I got half of them in the first 15 minutes we were there, so spray repellent BEFORE arriving to Kerensa! The shower is outdoors and connects to the bathroom with a screen door, so there were a lot of mosquitos in that part of the house. We also had a gecko or lizard in the bathroom, but it always hid behind the mirror when we walked in. Didn't bother us since it probably helped cut down on the mosquitos. :)

You do need to be a bit of an outdoorsy type to fully enjoy this villa, and you need to be comfortable driving a 4WD vehicle on steep, bumpy roads. We never ventured out after dark because we were not used to the narrow roads and not having street signs or lights, but that was our personal preference. If we stayed longer, we would probably be more comfortable driving. Ben was a great host - quick to respond to emails and fix anything we had an issue with. Overall, we had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend this home to others. It was a dream in paradise come true!

My husband is a BVI "regular" and knew the general location of Kerensa based on the listing. What we didn't realize (until we arrived) is that Kerensa is perched on a unique and private parcel, is adorably appointed, has a perfect floor plan and offers the most stunning vistas of miles of horizon. The linens were excellent quality (something I'm a stickler about), the kitchen (and accoutrements) is perfect for making delicious meals and you have many choices for outdoor dinning with spectaculars view. The property has been lovingly maintained, everything in perfect working condition. Ben made it clear we could contact him for anything, but we didn't need to! All we had to bring were our clothes and food. Ben & Jessica have thought of and provided everything you will need for making your stay enjoyable. We were thrilled to find 2 beach chairs, plenty of towels and even a cigar cutter! The furnishings & adornments were lovely touches of old-world charm - a good part of my first day was spent wandering the property inside and out, admiring all of the eclectic touches carefully placed throughout. We can't wait to come 'home' to Kerensa next year!

“Amazing romantic memorable”

We spent three nights at Kerensa and it was truly memorable. Definitely the most romantic place we've ever been! The outdoor living area was gorgeous, the pool was wonderfully private and the views without compare. But it was much more "rustic" than we thought by the pictures and description. No way we wanted to eat in the outdoor dining room with the crabs and other creatures, the outside shower was creepy at night, the kitchen was crawling with mosquitos and the bedroom was hot when the electricity went out at night, which was a regular occurrence. If the bug problem could be fixed, the screens worked properly and/or there was a generator, it might truly be heaven on earth!
