About the House
A long driveway, bordered by colourful bougainvillea, welcomes you to the Captain's House, a 2-bed private villa on Tortola. The villa sits majestically high up hillside with breathtaking panoramic ocean views from all corners of the property.
The large private pool separates the two pavilions ensuring maximum privacy to guests. The east pavilion offers king or twin beds with outdoor shower and private balcony. On the far side of the pool, a shady loggia provides an ideal area for alfresco dining and relaxation and leads into the main pavilion.
The living room, with tropical casual furnishings, is located adjacent to the fully equipped kitchen complete with dishwasher.
The master king bedroom suite beyond the living room also boasts an outdoor shower with sea views and private balcony.
Impressive 16' cathedral ceilings in the bedrooms and living room keep the villa well ventilated and comfortable, complimented by cooling tradewinds. Captain's House is a popular and romantic retreat.
