Due to COVID-19 restrictions I was required to quarantine for 5 days before granted permission to enter the BVI. I spent quarantine at Hummingbird House and was well looked after by Yvonne who made sure I had everything I needed. The rules are very strict and I was not allowed to leave the room. A clean comfortable room with good ventilation and a view across Road Town made the stay comfortable. It’s a difficult time for the tourist industry but hosts are doing their utmost to continue to make visitors feel at home and safe. Thank you !

We stayed only for one night at the end of a sailing charter. It’s a traditional b&b, which is pretty difficult to find in the AirBnB era. Its location close to Moorings, Roadtown and the ferry terminal is ideal. Accommodations are spacious, clean and comfortable, with several fans available to use instead of a/c. We used the a/c for a brief time but it made the room too cold for us! the breakfast was tasty and we enjoyed the cool pool and pets. Yvonne leaves out pool towels for guest use which is great. The honour bar is extremely well stocked and a wonderful idea. Other reviews mention the rules signposted by Yvonne in a negative light, but they’re there for a reason as each home has its idiosyncrasies. The road and driveway are really not as steep or long as others have made them out to be, only the most unfit wouldn’t manage. We’ll be back when we venture down to the BVI’s again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Yvonne who is a sweet an interesting person. She made us feel welcome and right at home. She is an amazing cook and the breakfast pancakes were the best we have ever tasted. She gave us time alone at breakfast but was always available anytime we had questions or needed her assistance. Each morning we delighted in watching the birds feed on the terrace and her pets were very sweet. We also enjoyed laying on the rafts in the pool. Yvonne provided good advice on restaurants and her bar is well stocked with water, chips, and adult beverages which is fairly priced on an honor system. The B&B is walking distance to Road Town, the Moorings, a French deli, a sports club, and wine shops. I highly recommend her lovely place.

Like the majority of reviews, we had a group who stayed here the last night of our BVI's sailing trip before heading back home the next day. This place is smaii and quaint but on the side of a hill. If you're not in shape or use to walking up hills and a lot of steps, this will be challenging. On arrival we were greeted by the owner who seemed to be quite lovely and took us around and showed us our rooms. Like another review said, the place was very outdated but quaint. I think the bathrooms could have been a little cleaner for my taste. After questioning why it was hot in all of the rooms, I was quickly informed (like a child who had done something wrong) that the AC was only for when I was going to bed for the night. And if it was turned on before that, there would be a surcharge. That's the last thing I wanted to hear coming off 7 hot days on a sailboat. I wasn't going to take a decent hot shower and then go sit in room that was as hot as the shower. They also advertise free high speed wifi, which is true only if you are sitting at the tables in the breakfast area.This is not a big deal, but it would have been nice to have been in my room catching up on emails and scores from that week. I will say as far as the breakfast the next morning, on a scale of 1-10, it was a 10+. she cooked it to perfection! Again, like another reviewer stated I think it's slightly overpriced for what you get.But, to each his own.

Response from rachael2rem, Manager at Hummingbird House

How very rude. This is a very old and as you say “quaint” house,if you want modern please stay in an hotel,with 24/7 air co,and Internet if you are lucky in your room.My house especially the bathrooms are very clean,understand this is an open property and the. Wind. Blows the. Dust in.??? When you arrive early when check in is 2pm,yes it is warm,.this is the Caribbean in Summer! A dip in the pool cools you off. Most people are very happy with Air co overnight,,and not in the least concerned with having it running all day,and understand that our electricity is very expensive,and we are all still trying to recover after the hurricane Irma.

We chartered a yacht from BVI yacht charters for our 25th wedding anniversary, and they recommended this place to us. We stayed for two nights before our charter and for one night after, at $180 per night plus a $10 surcharge for air conditioning. First impressions were promising. The property is elevated slightly above the heat of the harbor, and even after the hurricane, traces of the original gardens remain. As mountain climbers, the very steep driveway did not deter us, but it might prove challenging to others. Upon closer inspection, it must be conceded that, for the price, the place is pretty shabby. The bathroom door was swelled in an open position---it could easily have been planed down to operate. Wiring was exposed. Many of the louver windows were frozen open. One would expect to pay about $50-$70 per night for an old 1950's roadside motel with the same level of finish in the U.S. We have been around the world, climbing, camping, etc., and can easily overlook that kind of thing as long as the stay is warm and relaxing. Alas, it wasn't. There are little signs on everything designed to make you feel guilty to use them: the solar water heater is too small, so others will suffer if you take a shower (even if you have been sailing for a week, the sign adds for special emphasis); the septic tank can't really handle it if you use the loo; etc. Also, the cranky proprietress can be civil enough within narrow bounds, but she has a very short fuse indeed, and is happy to lecture you in front of other guests for lack of proper comportment, as several other reviewers have mentioned. For example, she publicly excoriated my wife for innocently mistaking poached eggs on toast for eggs Benedict (at five meters distance). It was not just a comment, but a lengthy lecture. It was a totally unnecessary, awful scene that anybody with people skills would definitely have avoided. We were also lectured in public for using the AC too long. She tripped on one of the many code violations of the concrete work around her pool and blamed me for following her too closely. When we left she was screaming at her neighbors' workmen. Just lovely. Another creepy thing, at least during our stay, was that the other guests were always absolutely silent, as if it were a church. They were long-term guests (at least two weeks), so probably they had already been adequately house-trained. In sum, we would say that if home for you was a sketchily constructed English boarding school, then this place will feel just like home.
