Update May 2018: Scottland sustained minimal damage despite Irma's best efforts...repairs and improvements were made before the power was even restored, Scottland honestly looks better than ever and guests are booking up quickly!
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, swing in the hammock, walk down to the beach or go exploring in your 4X4!
Scottland is a gorgeous two-storey villa surrounded by mature planting including vibrant bougainvillea which have all grown back post-Irma. 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 it's excellent swimming and snorkeling.
Accommodation on the lower floor consists of a comfortable and welcoming living room decorated with local prints and artifacts giving off a relaxing vibe. Generous glazed doors on two sides of the living room let in plenty of light, and most people leave them open all the time – one to the patio and pool and one to the unobstructed ocean views, which are simply magnificent. The villa’s substantial outdoor space provides a number of areas for relaxing poolside to top up your tan or lounging in the shade, as well as a cool shaded alfresco dining area. The built-in 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-style kitchen.
A curved staircase leads up to the comfortably furnished and welcoming master bedroom suite, with it's 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 and outdoor shower and a garden path leading to a pavilion-style gazebo where a gently swaying double hammock awaits. The second bedroom, a somewhat smaller room with a queen-size bed and small adjacent half-bath, is accessed by a couple 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. Although Scottland has 2 bedrooms, the villa is usually rented by one couple or a couple with children (the 2nd bedroom is not really equal to the first if renting to 2 couples).
In case you need to escape this idyllic bliss there is wifi for your convenience and a SmartTV in the master for all you Netflix addicts (and a DVD player and collection of movies for you romantics!)
