The Island House is a short 5-minute boat ride from the Bay adjacent to Beef Island Airport in the British Virgin Islands. You can walk from the airport to the dock in under 5 minutes with your luggage. Do not let the proximity to the main island fool you. The house is on a private island and feels removed from the hustle and bustle of modern day living.
The accommodations at the house are simple. The expansive 180-degree Caribbean views are your main source of entertainment. At 300 feet above the ocean below, watching the clouds move across the horizon and sailboats under sail is a meditation in itself. Looking north from the main ocean deck there is no evidence of other homes and privacy reigns. At night the stars are unprecedented and there is little to no visible light pollution. There is also a rustic trail from the neighboring house to the rocky coast below. When the waves are calm from the north there is incredible snorkeling around the rock outcropping.
What to bring- Once you arrive in Beef Island at the airport, your costs beyond the rental price of the Island House are limited to food, alcohol and gas for the boat. Generally we bring our meats, cheeses, and other delicacies from the USA in a small cooler. Other provisions are readily available on Tortola and Beef Island.
Given the restraints of the boat and the bedrooms the maximum rental capacity is 4 people, ideally a single family or two couples.
Requirements Sense of adventure, need of relaxation, relative self-sufficiency, power boating experience and appreciation of simple pleasures that beautiful scenery and privacy bring.
