Aslantic House is situated in a gated, private, tranquil seven acre
estate along Tortola’s north shore. The dramatic position is
emphasized by the three sided ocean view - on one side overlooking
Little Bay with its beautiful, secluded half-moon beach and on the
others, impressive cliffs looking across the straits to Guana Island.
For more than two decades, Aslantic House has been a private family
vacation home and, in fact, still remains so. You are invited to share
this spectacular haven with your own family and friends, where the
natural ambiance of this tranquil setting facilitates the vacation of
a lifetime.

While Aslantic House’s unique location offers unusual privacy, it also
allows easy access to the rest of the island and is perfectly placed
for whatever you want to do. Just twelve minutes from the airport, it
is also only five minutes over the mountain from a variety of grocery,
superb fish and convenience stores. To reach Road Town, the capital of
the BVI, one has a choice of taking the Ridge Road which runs along
the spine of the mountain that extends the length of Tortola or the
scenic coastal Blackburn Highway. Either way, it’s less than a
thirty-minute trip. Some of the island’s finest dining is located not
far away along the coast road towards Road Town.

Aslantic House is a complex of five principal buildings and pavilions,
each projecting a subtle East Asian influence and giving onto
breathtaking views in nearly every direction. There are five bedrooms
and four baths, all of which have been recently renovated and which
are housed in four separate buildings. Winding travertine paths and
terraces join the buildings. There is easy access to the beach at
Little Bay by a path leading from the pool terrace down through the trees.

Through the garden, a path leads to a stone seating area with
breathtaking views of the cliffs & water below, while from the natural
field beyond lie further dramatic vistas of the sea from high above
centuries-worn rock ledges leading to the water. Framing the setting
are numerous towering Norfolk pines that began their lives as small
family Christmas trees over the past 24 years. As you pass through the
entry pavilion, pathways fan out to Aslantic House’s accommodations.
To the right is the dining pavilion overlooking both the gardens and
seaside cliffs with a "blow hole", one of only several in the entire
British Virgin Islands. To the left is the main entry hall. Passing
through here, with the gourmet kitchen on the left, one enters the
living area of the main building which is attractively fitted with
indirect soft lighting and high airy plantation style exposed wood
ceilings. The adjoining dining area features a large glass topped
table that will comfortably seat 8 guests and is situated to provide a
pleasant breeze.

Cool limestone floors and large French doors lead from the living area
to another shaded terrace which features a large dining table with
views through the trees west along the Tortola coast. Just eleven
steps below the main building is the pool pavilion that serves as the
principal common living area. Spacious and open with unusually high
ceilings, it is equipped with its own wet bar, fridge, ice maker,
visual & sound system, and library of books and games. From the
terrace at its end, atop a dramatic 30 foot stone wall, one can see
for miles down Tortola’s north shore to Jost Van Dyke some 14 miles
away. In the evening over cocktails, you can watch spectacular ocean
sunsets from this vantage point.

The bedrooms are all large and airy with an overhead ceiling fan
in each. The master bedroom is located two steps up from the sitting
area of the main building and has a king bed and air-conditioning. The
room has superb views out to the Atlantic Ocean and Little Bay. This
bedroom has a full en suite bath complete with Portuguese granite
counter tops to complement the similar décor throughout the house’s
other bathrooms. There is also a walk-in closet with built-in shelves
- large enough for all you may have brought with you!

Beyond the entry pavilion is a guest bedroom with queen bed.
Adjoining this room is a twin bedded room. They share a very large
full bathroom with views to the ocean. From the rear terrace the view
overlooks the dramatic seaside cliffs. Both rooms have a large
hardwood corner wardrobe handmade on the island with ample space for
all belongings.

Around the corner with its separate entry is the owner’s suite. It
enjoys 180-degree views of the cliffs, Atlantic Ocean, Little Bay, and
neighboring Lambert Beach. This large split-level space includes
sitting-dressing area, bath with connecting outdoor walled shower
overlooking Guana Island, and large bedroom with a hand carved Indian
four poster king bed. This room has a 20-foot ceiling and large French
doors giving onto a wraparound terrace with truly incredible views.
Just down a few steps from the terrace, one is invited to explore the
end of the promontory that feels like being on the prow of a ship.

The fifth bedroom is in a separate building called the Stone House, to
the left of the garden entry path. It features 360-degree exposures
including a private entry off the garden and views of the Little Bay
beach through the hillside treetops. It has a king four poster teak
bed plus an antique Thai day bed which can be used for an extra single
sleeping arrangement. While wrap around exposures and ceiling fan
enhance the normal seasonal tropical breezes, this bedroom is also
equipped with air-conditioning for optimal privacy.

The utility space is conveniently located for all guests beneath the
Stone House and contains a large laundry facility with two washers,
two dryers, long folding table, ironing board and additional freezer.
