Cane Garden Bay villa description

Makere Cottage is nestled on Soldier Hill with gentle breezes and breathtaking views over Cane Garden Bay, surrounding islands and the Caribbean Sea. Situated at the end of a short gated drive with a private 20-foot swimming pool and large sun terrace, Makere Cottage represents the ideal retreat in which to relax and unwind.

The cottage is very spacious and ideal for a couple or family. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, day bed and plenty of closet space. The living room can be converted to a second bedroom with pull out sofa bed for a couple or two single beds for children. Both the bedroom and living room adjoin a 10-foot covered deck. The kitchen has all modern requirements and there is a large private bathroom. There is a second large overflow fridge freezer in the utility room if required along with a cooler for the beach.

The swimming pool is on the same level as the cottage offering a welcome escape from the Caribbean heat. A sun terrace providing a spacious area for both sunbathing and al fresco dining surrounds the pool. This new cottage has been built very much in the ‘Caribbean Style’ with wooden decks, blue shutter windows, white walls and terracotta-tiled floors creating a clean and simple environment.

You will need to hire a 4-wheel drive vehicle on arrival in Tortola. We can advise you on your travel arrangements, help you find the right car rental company and arrange for you to be met, either at the ferry terminal or airport, and escorted to the property. When you arrive at Makere you will be met by the property manager, who is also a neighbor, and provided with keys and a quick orientation before being left in peace to enjoy your vacation.

Makere Cottage is one of two villas on the property. If you book Makere Cottage, the upper villa will not be occupied, ensuring your complete privacy. However, if would like to vacation with friends and family and require additional accommodation then you can book both Makere Cottage and House together. For further information on booking Makere House and Cottage together please visit our separate VRBO listing 391477.

              Car: Necessary

              With its central location the house and cottage is an ideal setting from which to explore the island. Tortola is best known for its secluded beaches with their gentle surf, golden sands and tall overhanging palm trees. The beaches of Cane Garden Bay and Brewers Bay are both a short 5-minute drive away down opposite sides of Soldier Hill. They contrast each other perfectly. Cane Garden Bay offers lively bars and restaurants whilst Brewers Bay is peaceful and quiet with superb swimming and snorkeling. If you want to visit the capital Road Town to shop or take ferries to the many other islands, it too is only a 15-minute drive away.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: We – Adam (44), Tina (45), William (14) and Alexandra (11) have recently returned to live in Hampshire, England. Adam was born on Soldier Hill in 1970 while his parents were living and working on Tortola. In 1999 he married Tina and together they decided to build a home on the same spot with the dream that family and friends could visit the island and enjoy holidays together. The result is Makere and we hope you have as much fun there as we do!
