Great Camanoe villa description

The Villa Oasis - Great Camanoe Island, BVI

The Villa Oasis - situated only 100 feet above the water - high enough to command the 'Most beautiful view in the Caribbean,” yet close enough to stroll to the water's edge at the end of your driveway and enjoy the serene beach, private boat dock and clear, turquoise bay. All rooms have sea views. No traffic, and no need to drive to get to the water - but a 4-wheel drive Honda CRV (jeep-type) automatic comes with the house, just in case you desire it.*

Learn more about The Villa Oasis by visiting our own website (scroll down all the way to the bottom of the page. See: 'Website for THE VILLA OASIS on Great Camanoe Island,' and click on the LINK.

From your private base at The Villa Oasis, explore our surrounding seas; discover pristine beaches, intimate views and the adventure of the tropics, or just spend the afternoon in a hammock. Get reacquainted with life’s simple pleasures.

Play on soft, white sand under the shade of palm trees, collect unique sea shells, watch tropical fish from the dock as pelicans dive for their dinner, dine on the terrace with a view of seven islands, admire boats of all types sailing into the protected bay, and visit with cruising mariners from far away ports. Motorboat to small restaurants & beachfront bars – drift thru art & craft galleries - shop for tropical apparel & gifts. Join the nightlife, sing to live music played frequently at nearby Marina Cay (Pusser’s Hotel & Bar), Bellamy Cay (The Last Resort), Scrub Island (Mainsail Resort & Spa) or Trellis Bay (De Loose Mongoose). Boat across bay to The Baths at Virgin Gorda - sail, swim, snorkel, dive & fish in your front yard, or just watch it all from the comfort of your home.

An 18 foot motorboat with Bimini top, private dock space, and a private mooring ball for larger boats are all part of your luxury at The Villa Oasis.* Kite & windsurfing boards and fishing equipment are for rent at nearby Trellis Bay. Deep sea fishing expeditions, bareboat or crewed boat charters may be arranged with Villa Oasis bookings (to include discounts) or independently. Beachside bars, restaurants, gift shops and a small grocery store are a short boat-ride away.

All rooms, including bedrooms, have water views. Master bedroom has king size bed; the two other bedrooms each have queen beds. Each bedroom has its own bath & showe, air conditioning and ceiling fan, while the south-eastern exposure catches cooling trade winds that make A/C typically unnecessary. An idyllic location, only a 5 minute boat ride to the airport, yet Villa Oasis does not overlook the airport and does not face the development on Scrub Island. Accessible to everything in the BVI, but a world apart from the noise and hassle of Tortola. Upon arrival at Tortola Airport (Beef Island- EIS), there is no need for a taxi. Just walk east about 100 meters to the boat dock in front of the quaint Trellis Bay Market for your scheduled transport to The Villa Oasis.

* Please Note: Experience with and knowledge of basic, small power boat handling is absolutely required for at lest one person in each party.

Visit Our Website - We'd love for you to learn more about our beautiful vacation Villa and its tropical surrounds by visiting our web site. We have many more pictures and lots of additional information.

Great Camanoe, a relatively small, privately owned island about 2.5 miles long and a half mile to a mile wide, is one the most beautiful islands in the Virgin Islands archipelago. It has various small bays, coves and beaches, and lies just 2 miles northeast of Tortola (and the airport), the capital and largest island of the BVI. Gt Camanoe is located between the sister islands of Tortola, Beef, Little Camanoe, Scrub, Marina Cay and Virgin Gorda. It has only about 40 seasonal residences. The inhabited portion of Great Camanoe is divided into two residential communities: Privateers Bay, nestled between the beaches and hills on the less developed national park side of the island, and the more densely developed Indigo Plantation, on the western side of the island facing Tortola Airport. Both communities sit on the southern half of Camanoe Island, with the larger northern half of the island being completely undeveloped. Access to the island is by private boat only. Fast commercial ferry boats leave from Trellis Bay (Beef Is.) to Virgin Gorda. Smaller ferries from Trellis Bay to Scrub Island and Marina Cay are free.

While Great Camanoe provides romance & tranquility, the nearby environs offer a whirl of adventure, excitement and pleasure:

- Marina Cay, a flower covered island ringed by white sand beaches is just about swimming distance from The Villa Oasis. Here sits the famous Pusser's bar & restaurant, and a not-to-be missed Caribbean style lunch and dinner experience. Evening music & entertainment at the bar on the top of the island, fantastic beach for swimming & diving. The unique Pusser's Store offers tropical apparel & nautical gifts.

- Mainsail resort, spa & marina on Scrub Island is 2-3 minutes from the Villa Oasis dock. Amenities include:

• Bar & Fine Restaurant • Swimming Pool / Spa & Fitness Center
• Boat Rentals • Excursions: deep-sea fishing; snorkeling, SCUBA
• Yacht Charters • Retail Shops

- The last resort on Bellamy Cay in Trellis Bay, 3 minutes from The Villa Oasis. Memorable dinner theater & cabaret; small fun bar. What a gem!

- The loose mongose. Fun BVI beachfront bar & restaurant on shore of nearby Trellis Bay.

The british virgin islands

The British Virgin Islands, awarded by Caribbean Travel & Leisure Magazine as the 'Best of the Caribbean,' is comprised of about 60 tropical Caribbean islands. The BVI is located in the Virgin Islands archipelago, just a few miles east of the U.S. Virgin Islands and 60 miles east of Puerto Rico. Most the islands are volcanic in origin, have rugged, mountainous terrain, and afford magnificent sea views. Only about 15 are inhabited. Secluded coves and bays abound, and many islands have spectactular beaches.

                                  Year Purchased: 2005

                                  About the owner: We are an American couple from northern California and New York; and have lived in Canada, Washington DC, Singapore, Germany, Ireland, and the British Virgin Islands. Of all the places in the world, we found that The Villa Oasis on Great Camanoe Island has a near perfect balance of everything one would seek in a tropical environment: convenient to the mainland US, the US Virgin Islands & Puerto Rico, superb climate, unbeatable sailing and boating, clean air, clear water, spectacular scenery, US currency & time zone, and a safe environment.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Great Camanoe:
                                  As a consequence of moving a business from Europe to Tortola in 2005, we searched the entire BVI for the perfect island home: a private & safe location, beautiful views of the sea, walking distance to a sandy beach and privage boat dock. Moreover, we wanted a home that faced the easterly trade winds. Nothing met our criteria (many sites had great views but were located way too far from the water, others lacked easy access to a boat dock, beaches and swimming areas, or had not so pleasant orientations). Finally, we found The Villa Oasis - it exceeded our expectations and had everything we were searching for, and right at the end of its driveway. After residing here for six years, the BVI will now become our part-time residence, so we are letting out the estate for others to enjoy when we are away.
