Sunny Side Up, Belmont

Villa description

It’s all in a name. Sunny Side Up is exactly that – a luxurious, brightly painted villa situated high on the hillside in the desirable Belmont Estate, overlooking Belmont pond. Approached from a private driveway, the accommodation comprises of three generously proportioned air-conditioned lofty bedroom suites; a gracious open plan living/kitchen area; alfresco dining and a fabulous pool with well thought out additional poolside facilities. All this is further enhanced with breathtaking 180-degree panoramic views of the ocean and outlying islands of Jost van Dyke, Sandy Cay and Sandy Spit. From the villa’s many private balconies you can see the sweeping expanse of golden sand of Long Bay beach below.

Access to the main level is by a flight of white stone steps at the side of the villa. The Great Room with its airy cathedral ceiling is a large light room decorated with cushioned natural sea grass furniture giving it a restful feel and positioned to take advantage of the panoramic sea views through a series of high arched windows and doors. The open plan lounge and kitchen is separated by a bar counter with sea grass barstools while the rear of the room houses a fully functioning kitchen tastefully decorated with a wide range of mahogany cupboards and granite counter tops.

An arched doorway leads out to the pool deck with a covered alfresco dining area suitable for 8-10 people. The pool area, sheltered by the master bedroom balcony to the rear, is furnished with a casual poolside table and chairs as well as four luxury rattan cushioned sun loungers, just the thing for that afternoon snooze. A large stainless steel built-in gas BBQ, wet bar, mini-fridge, CD player and poolside shower complete this area.

At the opposite end of the pool from the Great Room is a pavilion with a separate private air-conditioned bedroom with two queen beds, cable TV and DVD player, and an en suite bathroom with a tiled outdoor shower. The arched door leads out to a private balcony with stunning sea vistas. From the pool deck, an exterior staircase brings you to the very spacious air-conditioned master bedroom on the upper level. The arched windows and doors overlook the pool area and provide breathtaking views across Long Bay and beyond. There is a king sized, four poster mahogany bed, cable TV, and a large double vanity en suite bathroom with a natural stone private outdoor shower. On the lower level is the third air-conditioned bedroom with 2 queen beds, cable TV and a tiled bathroom with walk-in fully tiled shower. The view from this room overlooks Long Bay and lush hillside.

Trudi’s personal opinion

Sunny Side Up is a light airy spacious villa perfect for couples/friends as well as extended families with older children. Its hillside position takes full advantage of wide expanse of ocean views and is ideally positioned for watching glorious sunsets yet it is still only a short 5-minute drive down the hill to the glorious beaches of Long Bay and Smuggler’s Cove. The clever design of this villa in 3 pavilions ensures guests’ privacy as well as enjoying time together by the pool or in the well-proportioned living areas. A wonderful vacation is guaranteed at this fun-loving villa.

    Sunny Side Up has incredible, expansive views to the north and then east and west of Jost Van Dyke and Tortola. Being so high up allowed us to view great rainbows and enjoy steady breezes which made sleeping very comfortable. The villa is in excellent shape, and we particularly enjoyed the open air plan with comfortable outside seating around the pool and open doors throughout so we could see views from everywhere. The three bedrooms and bathrooms are up-to-date, and the kitchen was well-equipped. The drive up is a bit interesting, but we got used to it pretty quickly. We liked early morning walks downhill to and along Long Beach and then back up the hill for good exercise. Our children loved the body surfing also at Long Beach. A great vacation all around.

    Sunny Side Up is a beautiful villa with great views and had all that you need to feel at home, the facilities are excellent. The villa exceeded our expectations and we would definitely recommend it to others. The on-island managers were very friendly and helpful. We were very satisfied with the response time and excellent quality of help from Best of BVI – all our questions were answered before the trip. I would suggest a new pan so that the food does not stick when cooking eggs and better water pressure in the shower of the main bedroom.

    Sunny Side Up was beautiful, well equipped, lovely colors, great views. It is a nice place to enjoy the evening with a glass of wine and the sound of the surf. Everything was very good, the rooms are very large and tall, that is nice. We have been looking at the villa from a distance for years wondering what it would be like inside and it was no disappointment. The manager, Sam, was very helpful and kind.

    Sunny Side Up is a beautiful villa that is great for couples or families with older children. The layout of Sunny Side Up is different from any other villa we have stayed in. The separate location of each bedroom offered optimal privacy for our party and the common area was great with much seating, a beautiful view and well equipped kitchen.

    The managers were very attentive. We had a problem with air conditioning in one of the bedrooms and the villa manager had the issue resolved within 24 hours. The housekeeper was excellent – she did a great job cleaning the villa and was very friendly.

    The pre-provisioning service was excellent – placed the order before our trip and the items were all stowed neatly in cabinets or the refrigerator waiting for us.

    Sunny Side Up exceeded our expectations and we’d definitely recommend it to others.
