Having one of the best southeast facing views in the British Virgin Islands makes living in this house truly captivating. It is as if you are soaring on a magic carpet, living among the stars and enjoying the panoramic overviews, looking out over the turquoise blue waters painted with the numerous islands and various seascapes beyond. This spacious 3-bedroom, 2-bath villa, with a deep plunge pool and ground floor workroom, in the prestigious Indigo Estate of Great Camanoe, was design-inspired and built by a pilot for himself and his love of sweeping vistas and lofty views, which is apparent throughout the chateau. Created for privacy and with an ultimate love of the Caribbean, this unique home, appropriately dubbed BVI Dream Escape, is a dream come true.
BVI Dream Escape was built with an en suite private bedroom and bath on one side of the home and an additional two bedrooms and bath across the opposite side of the living room. Covered verandas, with a welcomed Caribbean breeze, surround much of the home. The plunge pool on the lower level below, is perfect for enjoying a refreshing dip while soaking in the views. The lower level also offers a garage and an enormous workshop, the full length of the house, where the avid craftsman could enjoy many different projects in the comfort of his or her own home or where this space could be easily converted into more living and bedroom quarters for friends and family to visit. Finally, the third-floor eagle’s nest, with an expansive view is ready to be an office or hang out room.
This spacious upper level family home stands strong and sturdy, having survived Hurricane Irma with little damage to its mighty reinforced concrete structures and well-designed roof, despite its high vista. While the bones are superb, some windows and doors were damaged during the storm, which has created an opportunity for some needed interior renovation, making it extremely attractive for anyone wanting to customize their kitchen floor plan and put their own signature creativity. The home has been left as a blank canvas ready to be refitted and re-furnished to your personal preference.
In addition to the beauty of the villa itself are all the amenities of Great Camanoe. The tennis courts and beaches are a short walk or golf cart ride away, ready for swimming, sunbathing, and snorkeling along the coral reefs. In less than five-minutes, by boat, you are at Marina Cay, Scrub, Beef Island and neighboring Tortola. A further 20-40 minute boat ride takes you to several renowned beach bars and restaurants such as those found on Anegada, Saba, North Sound, Cooper Island, Foxy’s, Pirates and the Willie-T floating bar and restaurant at Norman Island.
BVI Dream Escape comes with its own boat slip within the Indigo Plantation private estate’s secure marina located on the sheltered southwestern side of Camanoe. Each of the 15-20 homeowners are allowed one slip which can accommodate a runabout motor boat up to 28 ft. This provides a perfect base for the short commute over to Beef Island for flight arrivals and departures or to drive to Tortola for grocery runs, banking, and/or take your private boat out for countless adventures to the numerous islands and cays of this beautiful archipelago.

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.
