What a place!
What a place!
We spent 9 days at Blackbeards in June for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. Gorgeous views, beautiful house, very relaxing. Everything we wanted! Definitely get a 4WD to get up the hill, as it's pretty rough. Very nice location next to the West End ferry terminal for day trips to Virgin Gorda or Jost Van Dyke. Short drive to Smugglers Cove or Long Bay. Again, can't recommend this place enough- it's gorgeous!

We found Blackbeard's Hideaway incredibly clean, bright, open, airy, and oooh those views! 180 degree jaw dropping views from the front of the villa and a very short stroll across your private road reveals another 180 degree view of the opposite side of the peninsula that the villa lies on. The infinity pool and ocean access via a nicely cleared pathway were great. The snorkeling off of the dock was private and wonderful, as were the sunsets. The villa is located in a convenient spot close to a marina, grocery store, and some great restaurants (The Clubhouse at Frenchman's Resort and Bananakeet were two favorites!) We found it difficult to drive away from this villa on a day to day basis to explore Tortola... We think you will too!

Villa exceeded our expectations. The location was close enough to both beach and shopping, but was very private. Home was very well appointed and the staff was very helpful. I would recommend this villa to anyone seeking fun and relaxation in a very beautiful setting. Jolly Roger restaurant, was just down the hill and had great food. Sopers Hole is about a 20 minute walk. There you can see beautiful boats, great little shops, a spa, a gourmet market with a great selection and nice place to sit down by the water and have a burger and a beer. We were two couples and we didn't even have to draw straws as both bedrooms were master suites with incredible views of the Caribbean.

Amazing privacy, beautiful villa and incredible views. Weather in June was comfortable and we were not bothered by bugs. The snorkeling at our waterfront was some of the best we have ever encountered! We will be back !

We stayed at Balckebeards July 3-10 2010. It was lovely!!! the views are amazing. Just a few notes for the house....1. Need a four wheel drive, as the roads to house are not paved. 2. The only sections of the house are air conditioned are the bedrooms. The main living room is open, (no doors) which makes the view great, but the heat and bugs bad. Overall, the house was located in a great area, just up the hill from incredible beaches. .

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: In 1968 Irene and her husband Stuart honeymooned on St. John in the US Virgin Islands. The rest is history... In the early 80's they introduced their young children to not just St. John but the US and British Virgin Islands. Although the dream was to move to St. John and begin a new life in paradise, it was not until 2000 that Irene, and her daughter Christine, and son Justin, together purchased the 8 acre peninsular estate known as Steele Point.
Why the Owner Chose Steele Point:
Steele Point Estate is perhaps one of the most unique, and stunningly picturesque, properties anywhere in the world. The property encompasses the entire Western Peninsula of the Island of Tortola. The estate is exclusively private, with three homes, all with magnificent views and unique tropical open architectural styles. Quite simply it was a most intriguing opportunity for the family to own not just a piece of paradise in the British Virgin Islands, but also one of the most impressive properties anywhere in the world.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Oh and did we mention the view? The peninsula itself is one of the many headlands that make up the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Beyond the channel is picturesque St. John however, the view from Blackbeard's is of the 7,000+ acres of undeveloped National Park. If the aforementioned views were not enough, from Blackbeard's you can also see BVI National Parks, Great Thatch Island, Sandy Cay, and Sandy Spit along with eight other islands. Another unique feature of this property is living on the very peninsula where quite literally the Atlantic and Caribbean converge. Furthermore being part of the Steele Point Estate this villa is directly in the center of not just the U.S. or BVI, but all the Virgin Islands. Everything wonderful that the Virgin Islands has to offer is equidistant and easily accessible. Lastly, because the peninsula is a gated estate you have the privacy of a private island, but the convenience of being on BVI's main island.
