A terrible disappointment
"We had read glowing reviews of the guest house and were thrilled to drag our suitcases up the driveway. Unfortunately, our experience was very unpleasant. We felt more like interlopers than guests -- in particular at the restaurant. After a long plane ride we longed mostly just to be welcomed. We knew the guest house was not expensive and were not looking for special amenities. Only a kind word and a friendly smile; we gave both, but got neither. Our stay in the BVI got off to a very rocky start because of this experience. Only one person was kind and friendly to us, I believe she may have been the manager, but otherwise, to a person, we were actually treated very rudely.
The beach itself is nice and we enjoyed sitting out and having breakfast, but the cleanliness of our room, especially the bed linens, left a lot to be desired. I hesitated to say the guest house was Okay, but hated to say terrible since the reviews indicate that other people were treated with respect. Unfortunately, we were not."

Great location, so-so service
"I had read great reviews about this place, so our party of five booked it for three nights.
The Beef Island Guest House is OK, but it does have problems. It is very casual and comfortable and it is nice to be so close to the airport if youâre flying.
However, Simon and Caroline did not provide very good service. It seemed an imposition to ask them for something, and the breakfast was heavy on starch and totally missing protein (important when you have kids).
Also, the trash along the beach and around the guest house gave the place a third world feel."

Great place to stay!
"This is a great place to stay. We stayed in Room #3 and couldn't be happier. The bar and "restaurant" were fabulous. Be sure to say hi to Sandra, Rosie and Yvonne for us. Simon whipped up some great BBQ after a long hard day at the beach and watching the Packers beat the Seahawks in OT on the TV at the beach. Can't rate this place higher.

This is the Place to Stay!!!!
"We stayed here before our flight and it is the place to stay. We wish we could have stayed longer. The food was fantastic and Simon and Caroline are the nicest people in the islands. If you have a chance stay here for a couple of days or just on your way to the airport."
