One of the best luxury vacation rental homes in the British Virgin
islands,Summer Heights nestles on a hillside, 500' above the south
coast of Tortola. The villa, rented by owners, is just a short drive
from the beaches, shops and nightlife of the island. Overlooking the
Sir Francis Drake Channel, you can see all the way from Ginger Island
in the east to Coral Bay in St John in the west and on a clear day St
Croix is visible over 30 miles to the south. Summer Heights is a
peaceful hideaway with spectacular sunrises, amazing night skies and
views that seem to go on forever.

This beautiful Tortola vacation home is approached up a winding road
through the breezy green hills of the private residential area known
as Havers Estate. On arrival, a broad staircase of Mexican coral tile
leads through the double entry doors to a sunny enclosed courtyard
with an expansive deck of crushed coral tile around a central swimming
pool. All accommodations are on this single level deck apart from the
two upper bedrooms.

A roofed poolside area provides a beautiful setting for casual dining,
with the adjacent gourmet kitchen and bar immediately at hand. A
curved glass brick wall separates the kitchen from the very spacious
lounge. Here you find comfortable, overstuffed sofas for lounging in
front of the TV, as well as a fully functional Vista computer station
with high speed DSL and WiFi - Skype and MagicJack are both set up for
worldwide calls.

The western side of the deck has four similar bedroom suites. The two
lower suites open onto a semi-shaded deck hung with a double hammock
while the upper two suites have private balconies. The fifth suite is
to the east of the pool. Each of the five suites has a beautiful ocean
view and features an impressive teak king four-poster bed with deep
comfortable mattress, ensuite bathroom, air-conditioning and cable TV
with VCR.

This luxury rental villa set in the heart of Tortola offers a relaxed
and restful haven that’s never too far from any beach, restaurant or
shop you may wish to visit. Come and see for yourself what a magical
and memorable vacation Summer Heights and the British Virgin Islands

the closest to Summer Heights, about a 12 minutes drive. Smuggler’s
Cove, arguably the best beach on Tortola, is a few minutes further
west. The safest beach for children is Cane Garden Bay, also about a
12 minute drive from Summer Heights. The sandy beach shelves gently
into the ocean and the waves are usually gentle. There are beach
loungers and water toys for rent. In the winter months, surfing
conditions can be found at Apple & Josiah’s Bays.
