Summer Heights

Havers Hill, Tortola, south central - 4 bedroom villa

Island perfection for couples or families! Summer Heights envelops you in its calm and peaceful aura - its hillside location affords long-distance ocean panoramas dotted with green islands in the distance, constant cooling tradewinds, and sets you above the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

A broad staircase of Mexican coral tile leads to the sunny enclosed courtyard and expansive deck, and to the pool tiled in cobalt blue, all overlooking sweeping sea vistas. Enjoy an early morning sunrise or yachts tacking up the Sir Francis Drake Channel - the views from this villa are simply breathtaking.

A roofed poolside loggia provides a beautiful setting for casual dining and viewing sunsets, with the adjacent gourmet kitchen and bar immediately at hand. A stylish curved glass brick wall separates the kitchen from the very spacious Great Room.

Four very similar, air-conditioned king bedroom suites with baths on two levels, decorated in ocean pastels or shell pinks, are situated along the deck from the Great Room. The two lower bedroom/bath suites open onto a semi-shaded deck hung with a double hammock; the upper two bedrooms open to private balconies. Each suite features a comfortable, sink-into king bed, and has its own telephone, cable TV, VCR, radio, coffeemaker; all suites have ocean views.

At the opposite end of the pool is the Turtle Dove Suite, which opens out on to the pool deck through sliding glass doors. It has a king bed, A/C, cable TV, a bath with his-and-her sinks, a bidet and large shower. An air-conditioned sixth bedroom with two twin beds is accessed via an interior staircase from Turtle Dove Suite below. This children's suite shares the bath with Turtle Dove Suite.

Summer Heights is a relaxed and restful haven with many enhanced amenities such as a gourmet kitchen, a computer with high-speed DSL, and a standby generator. A friendly, breezy vacation home for couples or families, this villa is conveniently located to town, shops, restaurants, and West End beaches.

His own accommodations are tucked away on the lower eastern side of the property, completely separate from the villa's amenities. For over 20 years he has hosted guests on his beautiful 72-foot sailing yacht in the Caribbean.
