Cane Garden Bay villa description

Located on Soldier Hill above Cane Garden Bay, Makere House and Cottage enjoy breathtaking views over the beach, surrounding islands and Caribbean Sea. With gentle breezes, tropical shaded gardens and a private swimming pool, the house and cottage represent the ideal retreat for two couples, or a family with children, who want to vacation together but still have privacy and the space needed in which to relax, unwind and have fun.

The villas have been built in the ‘Caribbean Style’ with wooden decks, blue shutter windows, white walls and terracotta-tiled floors creating a clean and simple environment. Both are very spacious containing a master bedroom with king-size bed, bathroom, living room, fully equipped kitchens and covered decks. The house is on the upper arrival level at the end of a short gated drive with ample parking for two cars. The cottage, the swimming pool and sun terrace are on the lower level accessed by a short flight of lit steps through the banana trees.

The signature feature of Makere House is its 12-foot wide wrap around covered deck and stunning views along the north coast of Tortola and across the sea to the US Virgin Islands of St John and St Thomas in the distance. The centre of the house is the open kitchen and living room, connected by a breakfast bar, providing the perfect environment in which to talk and relax together. The living room has a pull out sofa bed if required. The master bedroom opens onto the deck and has a king-size bed, its own en-suite bathroom and plenty of built-in closet space.

The cottage is just as spacious. 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 is fully stocked with all modern requirements and there is a large private bathroom.

The swimming pool and sun terrace are on the same level as the cottage offering a welcome escape from the Caribbean heat and a lovely focal point for both villas. The sun terrace provides a spacious area for sunbathing, barbequing and al fresco dining around the pool.

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.

          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: 2000

          About the owner: We – Adam (41), Tina (42), William (11) and Alexandra (8) 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 House and Cottage and we hope you have as much fun there as we do!
