Little Mountain Estate, Beef Island, Tortola - 4 bedroom villa
The official residence of the Governor of the British Virgin Islands from 1998 to 2004, very private Allamanda Estate is situated on a breezy hilltop amongst lush, flowering gardens within prestigious Little Mountain Estate, commanding expansive wraparound vistas of ocean and green islets and cays.
The tiled formal entry hall takes you to the traditional drawing room, elegantly-furnished with sink-into sofas and chairs, the large kitchen, the formal dining room, the very spacious air-conditioned king master bedroom with an ensuite bath, and a smaller bedroom/bath with twins (or one king, if you wish) - and finally to a sweeping native stone terrace framed by wide arches and tropical foliage and overlooking Beef Island's south side and beyond - perfect for sunset cocktails. The hallway offers a home office desk complete with a desktop computer with internet access and fax machine.
On the other side, the hallway opens to the sunny pool set like a jewel within a stone and tile terrace bordered with graceful palms and island flora. On one end of the pool terrace is a shady covered deep verandah furnished with cushioned wicker seating for reading and relaxation, family TV, tables for casual dining and games, and a wet bar containing a mini-fridge, icemaker and a gas grill. Allamanda Estate's guest pavilion is adjacent to the pool verandah, ensuring guests' privacy and comfort, and offers two spacious, air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suites with a convenient and cozy foyer between them, equipped with a cushioned bench, table, sink, mini-fridge, microwave and coffeemaker.
Original artwork and potted plants throughout enhance this villa's gracious charm. Allamanda Estate is the grand dame of villas, offering old-world charm and quiet seclusion. You may explore old plantation ruins nearby, or continue to Long Bay Beach below, only a few minutes' drive away. It's also an ideal location for weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries and family get-togethers. Special arrangements may be made in advance for these special occasions, and you may also arrange for your own private chef, nanny, massages and day-spa services.
