Enjoy Relaxing Ocean Views and the Sound of Waves at Vista do Mar Villa
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!!
Vista do Mar offers 2 suites which can be connected by internal stairs for families and friends. Alternatively just rent one floor if that’s all you require, and have complete privacy with just a shared entrance hall. Attractive furniture lends a Caribbean feel and with the ocean views and the sound of the waves, you can’t help but to feel relaxed – a 2 or 3 minute walk and you are on the beach.
The Penthouse has an open layout with a comfortable king-size bed in the large bedroom with lounging area (2 comfortable chairs with footstools and coffee table), desk, new AC (installed 2014) and 32″ flatscreen satellite TV and WIFI. Three large sliding glass and screen doors open to let in the fresh sea breezes. The covered deck with it’s 2 teak chairs and table is the perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail gazing out to the ocean and the boats sailing by. The kitchenette is equipped with a built-in electric cooktop, coffee-maker, toaster oven, microwave and refrigerator. The bathroom is very spacious and offers a large tub with shower head and single vanity.
The Garden Suite is the larger of the two, with a separate bedroom and living room and large, picturesque covered dining deck with seating for 6 and a built-in gas BBQ, surrounded by neat hibiscus hedges and overhanging bougainvillea. The kitchen has a built-in electric cooktop, dishwasher, refrigerator, coffee-maker and blender. 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 desk/ work space and satellite TV and DVD and WIFI. It is separated from the kitchen with a sociable breakfast bar and island housing the cooktop. The bathroom has a shower and single vanity. There is AC (installed 2014) in both the living room and the bedroom.
Each villa is also equipped with an iron, hair-dryer and a local cell-phone with $5 credit and WIFI. Parking is just above 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.
