Havers Hill, Tortola
6Br, 5.5Ba (5 Ensuite)
Complete with panoramic views of the sea from atop charming little Havers Hill on the island of Tortola is the villa known affectionately as Summer Heights. This luxury vacation estate contains six bedrooms, alongside plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces for living and playing, for up to twelve guests at a time. This villa is for lovers, families or anyone looking to get into a Caribbean state of mind.
Guests of Summer Heights are always greeted with a starter bar, though the crown jewel of Summer Heights’ many luxury amenities is no doubt its gorgeous blue-tiled swimming pool from where one can enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding sea. Next to the pool is a covered alfresco dining area, great for casual dining. There is also an outdoor bar with a refrigerator, a gas grill, double hammock and plenty of patio furniture. The estate has both full cleaning and laundry services and modern entertainment devices, plus an Internet connection.
The interior of Summer Heights has tall, lofty ceilings, and have been decorated in a contemporary style with soft color tones. The great room is spacious and has been furnished with stylish white leather seating and whimsical objets-d’art. On the far side of this great room is a unique curved glass brick wall, on the other side of which is the gourmet kitchen that is decked out with an espresso machine and ice cream maker among other major appliances.
Painted in either lovely ocean pastels or coral tones, four bedrooms in the main house are off the great room on two floors and each have en-suite bathrooms, climate control, TV, telephone, radio, coffee maker and ocean views. The Turtle Dove Suite found on the far side of the pool has a king bed, air conditioning, television, a bath with his-and-her sinks, a bidet and large shower. The sixth bedroom, ideal for children, has two twin beds and can be accessed via an interior staircase from the Turtle Dove Suite below.
Even though it’s the largest of the British Virgin Islands, Tortola still feels very low key. The pier is spotted with sailors and sailing ships. And from there it’s just a jaunt to the center of town. Be on the lookout for one-of-a-kind gems made by local craftspeople, such as handmade jewelry and metal bracelets – forged while you watch!
