About the property

Beautiful, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 8) villa surrounded by tropical garden

Gestalt Villa is situated on the private, gated peninsular estate of Steele Point which is located on the most western tip of Tortola. You will experience tropical wonder as the Gestalt villa is nestled in lush gardens, flowering hibiscus and an abundance of palms on this exclusive 8 acre estate. Your Mediterranean-style villa, includes four smartly appointed air conditioned master suites each with a private outdoor shower. An architectural masterpiece, Gestalt villa provides simultaneous views of both the Atlantic ocean and Caribbean sea. A picturesque private walkway leads down to Gestalt's dock where you can enjoy swimming and snorkeling. Many of our guests comment on how the snorkeling is some of the best they experienced while in the BVI. There is an abundance of fish and beautiful underwater formations.

Over 100 feet above sea level, this unique and totally private villa will afford you alfresco living at its finest. You will notice the villa's charm the moment you walk down the stone walkway through a flowering garden courtyard, surrounded by lofty palm trees and serene ocean views.

The new, custom designed gourmet kitchen features beautiful teak cabinets, ice maker, wine cabinet, beverage cooler, gas range all by high end appliance manufacturers - Sub-Zero, Miele, Thermador. If you enjoying grilling you will like cooking on the large gas grill located right outside the kitchen door.

Gestalt is masterfully designed to combine maximum livability with unparalleled privacy. Here you can experience incredible sunsets, relaxation, romance and fun with family and friends. A wonderful villa for children and adults of all ages.

The Gestalt villa is located on the Steele Point peninsula which 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 Gestalt is of the 7,000+ acres of undeveloped National Park. If the aforementioned views were not enough, from Gestalt you can also see BVI National Parks, Great Thatch Island, Sandy Cay, and Sandy Spit along with eight other islands. Furthermore being part of the Steele Point Estate this villa is directly in the center of not just the USVI 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.

About Irina Wilson Gage

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.

Irina Wilson Gage purchased this villa in 2000

Why Irina Wilson Gage chose British Virgin Islands BVI

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 four 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.

What makes this villa unique

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 Gestalt is of the 7,000+ acres of undeveloped National Park. If the aforementioned views were not enough, from Gestalt 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 USVI 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.

This is a comfortable, well appointed house with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Gestalt Villa is wonderful. The house is has a unique feel, with plenty of indoor/outdoor living. The kitchen is well stocked with everything one might need for cooking. The views our amazing - we loved watching the boat traffic coming and going from Sopers Hole on one side, and Jost Van Dyck on the other side. Beds and bedrooms were very comfortable, with quality bedding. The bathrooms were gorgeous, and creatively designed - nothing like showering under the sun or stars while gazing at the views! Both Charmaine and Astley couldn't have been more helpful or friendly.

Perfect home for a perfect island!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Gestalt at Steele point for a week at the beginning of March. We were two couples with two children each and the house was perfect for us. The bedrooms were spacious and clean, the beds were so comfortable (especially the pillows!) and the bathrooms were like none you will ever see again. Imagine an outdoor shower that looks out onto the most beautiful harbor/mountain view you've ever seen. We loved watching the boats go in and out while making meals in the gourmet, well-stocked kitchen. The staff is friendly and helpful and Irina has the best recommendations for things to do on the island. We can't wait to return!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing - the pictures don't do it justice and my words certainly won't either. All of the living spaces are open-air with gentle breezes and incredible views. The comfortable bedrooms can be closed off and air-conditioned if needed. The outdoor bathrooms are perfection and the gourmet kitchen was well-equipped. We were 4 couples and this house couldn't have worked better for us. We spent the majority of our time there because it was hard to find a more beautiful setting. I would recommend this house to anyone - it's gorgeous, convenient to the West End ferry terminal, a grocery store and marina in Soper's Hole, and an incredible beach at Smuggler's Cove, and Irina (the owner) answered any and all questions quickly and happily. We were well taken care of and we will be returning!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Gestalt at Steele Point this past week to celebrate my 50th birthday. I would suggest paradise is an understatement, and the better description should be UTOPIA. From the panoramic vistas from each room, the outdoor showers, the gourmet outdoor kitchen along with the close proximity to the ferry makes this villa an ideal vacation home to stay with family or friends. Irina should be proud of her property, and vacationers should feel lucky to have the opportunity to rent such a beautiful estate.

FABULOUS Villa

  • 5 of 5

The word beautiful does not even begin to capture this amazing villa. Everywhere you turn is a perfectly composed Caribbean postcard!! The listing description cannot begin to capture the special character of both the villa and its location. The villa's housekeeper is very helpful and keeps the property very clean. The owners were especially warm and easy to deal with. We have traveled extensively and would recommend the Gestalt Villa to friends and family. It is romantic, peaceful and revitalizing. An incredible villa - we have every intention of returning!!
