Banana Tree Villa… Spacious, Bright and Comfortable Accommodations with Great Ocean Views
The Villas of Long Bay are a collection of attractive, free-standing villas nestled into the slopes of Long Bay, West End. The fabulous North-facing views encompass Jost Van Dyke, Little Jost, Sandy Cay and Green Cay. Formerly known as Long Bay Beach Resort, the entire development is surrounded by well-established, bright, tropical landscaping and bordered by the mile long white sand beach… Each villa is just a few minutes’ walk from the sand and turquoise water… While almost identical in design and layout, the interiors of these privately-owned villas have all been individualised and all have ocean views due to their positioning on the hillside. With AC, refrigerators and satellite TV in all units, you have all the comforts of home – but you’re in the beautiful BVI!!
“Banana Tree” offers 2 suites which can be connected by internal stairs for families and friends. The rich dark, wood furniture and green soft furnishings lend a tropical feel.
Banana Treetops (the penthouse) has a spacious and bright open layout, offering a comfortable king-size bed, 2 armchairs with foot-rests, a cosy workspace, AC and satellite TV. Screened wide sliding glass doors open to the covered dining deck with 2 teak chairs and a table looking out to the ocean, the perfect spot to watch the sun go down with a beer or cocktail. The small kitchenette is equipped with coffee-maker, toaster oven, microwave and refrigerator. The bathroom is spacious and offers a large shower and single vanity.
The Garden Suite is the larger of the two, with a separate bedroom and living room and a large, covered dining deck with seating for 4 and a built-in gas BBQ. The large sliding glass and screen doors open to the breezes and ocean views in both the bedroom and living area. The living room offers comfortable seating, a small desk / work space and satellite TV and DVD player. It is separated from the kitchen with a sociable breakfast bar and an island housing the cooktop, toaster oven, blender and microwave oven. The bathroom has a shower and single vanity.
Both units are equipped with irons, hairdryers, wifi and a local cell phone with $5 credit. Parking is right next to the villa.
Positioned between two famous beaches, Long Bay is in itself a treasure – with a mile of soft, white sand that’s lined by swaying palms and shady sea-grape trees, there’s a quiet spot for everyone – on a calm day snorkel out to Pelican Point; when the swell is up body-surf or boogie-board the waves to the shore; venture along Nature Boy’s trail through the sea-grape tress to Belmont Salt pond where you may even be lucky enough to see a flamingo! or simply walk off some of those frozen drinks! Smugglers Cove is the next bay to the west – famed for it’s amazing snorkeling and tranquil shore, it may no longer be a secret but it is “off the beaten track” enough that it remains pretty uncrowded. Just over the hill to the east is Apple Bay, a top destination for well-travelled surfers.
