Tortola

Limeberry Villa, Belmont

Villa description

Limeberry Villa is a truly unique vacation property nestling discreetly and peacefully in the lush, green hills above Long Bay on the north-west coast of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. This well-maintained property, which is reached via a private driveway bordered by exotic flowering plants and tropical palms, offers four air conditioned king-size bedroom suites with en suite facilities, enjoys panoramic ocean and sunset views, and is both finished and furnished to a very high standard throughout. The house is within walking distance (or else a very short drive) of Long Bay and Smuggler’s Cove, both considered to be two of the very best beaches on the island.

The property is entered through a pair of striking cornflower-blue gates, and a flight of steps leads guests down to the heart of the villa: a covered but open-sided area for cool and comfortable alfresco dining, and then an infinity-edged swimming pool, with breathtaking views of Jost van Dyke in the middle distance. To the rear of this dining area is a fully equipped gourmet kitchen with every appliance needed to provide first-class meals, including a refrigerator and freezer with an ice maker, and at the western end of the house is the restful living room. This also benefits from a generous covered verandah with a table and chairs, sun-loungers, a well-stuffed outdoor sofa, and not least a gas-fired professional barbecue. This makes an ideal setting for a morning coffee, or else an evening cocktail while watching the spectacular sunsets over Jost van Dyke. Conveniently close to the living area is a laundry room and half-bathroom, the latter with WC and washbasin.

The air-conditioned master suite, a spacious, airy and yet still very romantic room with a high cathedral-style ceiling and its own private verandah with glorious views of the ocean and outlying islands, is reached by a tiled staircase leading up from between the living area and the laundry room. The bed is a king-size four-poster, and there is also a comfortable sofa, together with a table and chairs, to create a relaxing, peaceful haven at any time of the day. The en suite bathroom, reached from either side of the bedroom, has a walk-in shower, and unique twin washbasins. Three further king-size bedrooms, all with four-poster beds and en suite facilities, are located in separate pavilions to the east side of the property; two of these rooms are located one above the other in the yellow pavilion. Both of these suites offer a private verandah with sun-loungers, and the lower bedroom also has an outdoor shower.

Decorated throughout in vibrant but tasteful and relaxing colours such as light blues, yellows and terra cotta, Limeberry Villa is as easy on the eye as it is to live in. It’s also thoroughly practical, with a mix of cool tiled floors for the inner living areas and bedrooms and pleasing hardwood for the verandahs and outdoor deck areas. Versatile, too, with the possibility of one of the bedrooms being made up as twins. Other facilities include TV in all four bedrooms and the living area, a CD and DVD player, wireless internet connection, plenty of books and games, and even a stand-by generator.

Trudi’s personal opinion

Whenever I view a property for the first time I tend to judge it not just on the basis of what I see, but also – and perhaps more importantly – by how I feel. My initial thoughts are more than likely what guests will feel, too, when they first arrive. This is an elegant, thoughtfully conceived home, and it has been both designed and finished to a good standard. The bedrooms are gorgeous: spacious, cool and airy, but amazingly private and romantic, too. The villa has a great layout with areas where you can enjoy family-group get-togethers, yet plenty of other places with soft, inviting sofas for those seeking some quality time on their own. This property is ideal for couples, groups and families alike.

    I would rate Limeberry Villa as a 10 on a scale of 1-10. It was everything we needed and were looking for. The views were incredible, the owners were awesome and so helpful! It was perfect. The facilities were awesome, exactly what we needed. The owner, Jon, was so helpful! He even brought us to the house from the ferry dock! So very kind of him. On the return, he had his housekeeper also help us out. Evelyn, the housekeeper, was awesome! Next time I heard we have to have her cook for us as her food is outstanding! Limeberry Villa met our expectations and then some! It was absolutely fantastic. The sunset views are stunning!

    I found the booking process to be easy and Best of BVI helped with everything we needed. I was completely satisfied with response time and quality of the help that was provided. Your services were fantastic. Trudi was the coordinator I worked with and she was amazing. She was so helpful and was so relaxed, it was great because we were travelling with a group of 8 which at times seemed so very complicated. Trudi was patient and understanding of the whole process and was there for me the entire way! Thank you for everything you did and hopefully we will be travelling there very soon!

    From initial enquiry to departure taxi, the customer service was excellent. The delicate balance between service and being unobtrusive was achieved throughout the holiday. Spending time with our adult children and their partners, this was a perfect villa to allow privacy for each couple with their own verandahs and fabulous communal space to be together. The well equipped kitchen was a dream! Jon and Kate were perfect hosts; nothing was too much trouble. A perfect holiday!

    Everything worked beautifully, from the taxi collecting us to take us to the villa, the treasure of a housekeeper, to the warm and hospitable Jon and Katy. Thank you also for your help – it was such a pleasure to deal with such a professional!

    We would rate the villa 10 out of 10. It had everything we needed and more. The owners, Jon & Katy, are wonderful and extremely hospitable. Missing the island terribly. Had a great time.

    The booking process was a piece of cake, excellent service from Best of BVI.

    We had a great time. The villa was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Jon [villa owner] is a real gentleman and an excellent host. He went above and beyond.

    We had a fantastic time on Tortola. It was sad to leave. I can’t thank you enough for all the help you gave us for this trip. This is by far the most expensive trip we have taken, but it was worth it. We enjoyed the villa so much that it was hard to pull ourselves away. Even once we got the car, I would have preferred to stay at the villa. So, therefore, there is so much we didn’t do. We did not make it to Virgin Gorda, so I’m thinking next time we may just have to book a villa there! We ate at Bananakeet our last night with the kids, and had the most fantastic sunset. Thanks for recommending that. It was awesome (our food was great, too).
