Surrounded by lush gardens, and overlooking Smugglers Cove, Scottland is the most beautiful and romantic Mediterranean style villa in Tortola. Truly tucked away down a 1/2 mile driveway, this villa could not be more private and peaceful. This villa is designed to be a 'get-away-from-it-all'....you are free to laze by the pool, walk down to the beach or go exploring in your 4X4! Wifi for your convenience and a TV in the master with DVD player.
Scottland House is a gorgeous two-storey property surrounded by mature planting including vibrant bougainvillea. The villa is located in a very peaceful area of the island, and is just a 15 minute walk – or a short drive – from the nearest beach at idyllic Smuggler's Cove with its excellent swimming and snorkeling.
Accommodation on the lower floor consists of a comfortable and welcoming living room furnished with a brightly coloured ‘L’-shaped sofa, and decorated with local prints and artifacts. Generous glazed doors on two sides of the living room let in plenty of light, and open fully – one to the patio and private pool and the unobstructed ocean views, which are simply magnificent. The villa’s substantial outdoor space provides a number of areas for relaxing poolside, topping up your tan, or reading, as well as shaded alfresco dining. The in-built gas BBQ is to the rear of the patio. Adjacent to the living room through a wide, open doorway is the villa's well-equipped country kitchen.
A curved staircase leads up to the comfortably furnished and welcoming master bedroom suite, with its vaulted ceiling and romantic four-poster bed. This room has an en suite bathroom with a good-size natural stone shower and pretty hand-painted washbasin. French doors open wide to a small balcony and views of the ocean and outlying islands of Jost van Dyke and Sandy Cay – among several others. To the rear of the master bedroom is a private tiled courtyard with café-style table and chairs, a private outdoor shower and a garden path leading to a pavilion-style gazebo and a gently swaying double hammock. The second bedroom, a somewhat smaller room with a queen-size bed and small adjacent half-bath, is accessed by a short flight of steps from the rear of the kitchen, it has AC and french doors out to the beautiful ocean views. Do note that the second bedroom has only an outdoor shower that is not private.

As managers of Scottland, we work directly for the villa owners and live on Tortola full time, just a couple of miles from Scottland in fact! We know the villas that we manage inside out; we can offer assistance with car rental, provisioning and anything else you might need; and we will be here to show you around the villa. We look forward to meeting you!
My husband and I, along with our two teenage daughters, enjoyed a week at Scottland for our spring break. The house was wonderful, views never got old, and we never wanted to leave. We loved cooking on the grill, swimming in the pool, having coffee overlooking the ocean every morning, and visiting Smuggler's Cove daily. A 4x4 is a must, but the secluded location was worth it. Close to West End for outings and an easy drive to other beaches too! Sam and Sharlene were wonderful and responsive to my many questions and made the whole process go very smoothly! We will be back, and would highly recommend this property!
My wife and I were looking for a self-catering property on Tortola and randomly stumbled on this property. We have a 10 month old so were looking for a place with amenities on site. The property itself is gorgeous -- although not a massive villa (which was not needed for our group), every bit of space is used very sensibly and the entertaining area (which is basically the entire property) is amazing. Honestly, we did not want to leave as the view combined with the pool and entertaining area, made everything else pale in comparison. Having Smuggler's Cove (which is beautiful and a 10 min walk away) right below as well as the Soper's Hole (markets, restaurants etc) a short drive from the villa were also fantastic for when we wanted to get out of the villa. A 4x4 SUV is almost a must for the driveway, but from our experience, a rental car/SUV is important for those looking to see the island generally (think steep hills!).
In terms of the booking process, having never been to the BVI before, we needed a bit of handholding. Sam and Sharlene were utterly fantastic. Outside of giving us much needed advice about the area, what we would need, insider tips about things to see etc, they arranged our rental car and made the entire booking process and stay hassle free. Sam was pretty much available every day and answered all our questions very quickly.
We cannot wait to head back!
Our family of 4 had a fantastic stay at Scottland in August 2016. The house was remote enough to feel like we were really getting away from it all, yet close enough to explore Tortola's West End. The pool area was our favorite. We enjoyed using the fully-stocked kitchen to cook meals with the kids and enjoy the sunset views. The room set-up is best suited for older kids, since the rooms are separated, but it was great to have their own space. I would definitely recommend a 4x4 car to drive the roads in the West End, but if you have one, it's fun to explore. We explored the island and found some remote beaches that were off the beaten path - those were our favorites. The property managers were fantastic - before, during and after our stay.
As business owners we work all the time so were looking for a place to get away from it all. Scottland was perfect! It is private, well appointed, comfortable, and with amazing views. We loved everything from the master suite, kitchen, pool and the patio. We had a few afternoon showers which allowed us to relax on the veranda watching the rain over the islands while listening to music and reading books. Absolute Paradise! We've looked for other similar properties in the Caribbean without success - nothing offers both the privacy and the comfort. We will be back!
We booked this Villa as a Honeymoon trip, for ten days. Let me just say, there's no place I would rather stay, than this Place.. I would give the staff, and their service and help 5 stars. The Villa is located on the side of secluded mountain, and has views, privacy and romance pouring from its Spanish style design, Orchids blooming everywhere you look. Beautifuly decorated, tasteful elegance. If you have the opportunity to be able to get here, do so! Samantha, and Sharlene handle everything and make this a perfect example of a retreat. The Pool is perfect. Music and isolation with a view of a nearly private beach. Stunning. Coral reef 5 min from Villa. Unbelievable sea life right there. Five stars, 2 time visited the BVI! Superb. The pictures don't compare to the actual experience. Hands down, will be back.
My wife an I stayed at this beautifully located and appointed villa with everything you could ask for in accommodation from April 16-23, 2016. We have stayed at a number of holiday villas around the world and from our experience, most overstated their descriptions and / or have outdated photos attached. When we stayed at Villa Scottland we found that it is actually far better than described and pictured. Simply too beautiful for words. The support we received throughout the booking, check-in and checkout process was also first class.
We would absolutely recommend this to others and are already planning our next visit.
