Summer Heights offers the seclusion and amenities you would expect from a private Caribbean villa. The property is presently used as a vacation rental and is also ideal to be used as a small boutique hotel or bed and breakfast.
Nestled on a hillside, 500' above the ocean, in the midst of a green oasis, Summer Heights is situated on Tortola's south coast just a short drive from the beaches, shops and nightlife of the island. Overlooking the Sir Francis Drake Channel, you can see all the way from Ginger Island in the east to Coral Bay in St John; and on a clear day St Croix is visible over 30 miles to the south.
Summer Heights is a peaceful hideaway with spectacular sunrises, amazing night skies and views that seem to go on forever.This beautiful Tortola home is approached up a winding road through the breezy green hills of the private residential area known as Havers Estate. On arrival, a broad staircase of Mexican coral tile leads through the double entry doors to a sunny enclosed courtyard with an expansive deck of crushed coral tile around a central swimming pool. All accommodations are on this single level deck - apart from the two upper bedrooms.
A covered poolside area provides a beautiful setting for casual dining, with the adjacent gourmet kitchen and bar immediately at hand. A curved glass brick wall separates the kitchen from the very spacious lounge. Here you will find comfortable, overstuffed sofas for lounging in front of the TV. The western side of the deck has four bedroom suites.
The two lower suites open onto a semi-shaded deck, while the upper two suites have private balconies. The fifth suite is to the east of the pool. Each of the five suites has a beautiful ocean view and features an impressive teak, king-size, four-poster bed, ensuite bathroom, air-conditioning and cable TV.
The history of the British Virgin Islands (BVI) is the stuff of epic tales. Norman Island, at the southern tip of the chain, is said to be the setting for Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island.” Nearby caves once hid riches plundered by pirates. The ocean floor is a graveyard for sunken ships. Read more about luxury homes in British Virgin Islands
