Overview

About the property

House, 3-5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths (Sleeps 13)

Walk through our doors to the stellar setting and unsurpassable view of Sunset House. This classic Caribbean house, lovingly restored by its new owners, spreads over Long Bay Hill just a short walk from Long Bay beach at the west end of Tortola.

Nestled in the lush hills above long Bay, Sunset House offers you a most unique and intimate vacation experience. Over the years the house has been host to English Royalty, famous sports figures, and well known theatre personalities; as well as weddings, family reunions and groups of friends.

Artfully designed, Sunset House will captivate you from the very first moment you step through the elegant gazebo styled entrance and into the open courtyard from which a spectacular vista of historic Long Bay and its mile-long beach beckon.

The house features five large airy bedrooms, each with bath in suite and a private balcony with spectacular views of Long Bay to Jost Van Dyke and the outer islands. Relax by the pool lulled by its waterfall or enjoy a water massage in the tranquility of the hot tub. Watch the sunset while having cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the wraparound veranda, and savor dinner prepared for you by our staff in our new state of the art kitchen. You will enjoy the personalized services provided by the staff which is headed by Carmen who has been with the house for over twenty years.

Since we all know that the travel experience these days is exhausting we welcome you to sit back and relax while dinner is prepared and served to you by our staff. No shopping, cooking or cleaning required, and no stress allowed.

We deeply appreciate you coming to Tortola and we look forward to making your stay here extraordinary and memorable so that you will want to return to our paradise again and again.

**All Rates are Based on 3 Bedrooms. Please contact us directly for 4 Bedroom and 5 Bedroom Rates.**

Your experience will be second to none, and we know that once you walk through our doors you will fall in love with our house as many others have.

Your rental includes complimentary continental breakfast, and the services provided by our cook, serving staff and housekeeper. Prior to arrival we will contact you to discuss menu choices, and any house provisioning you would like. The cost of the food for the dinners and the house provisioning will be charged to your account.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ok...May I just say for the hundredth time, that "It just doesn't get any better than this!" The moment we arrived we have been treated like royalty, Do you hear me? Royalty. The staff were the best, all sweeties...all of them. We have loved our time here and, like everyone else who has had the good fortune to discover this home, truly a home we hate to leave and can't wait to return. Carmen and her staff have been nothing but the perfect hosts and their meals here...oh my! too wonderful. How great is it to have a fabulous dinner at home and be able to relax and just...be! Thank you to our fabulous hosts, the wonderful paradise they have named Tortola, and we will set a goal to return soon.

Truly Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to experience Tortola. Watching the sunset was an amazing way to start each evening followed by incredible food. The staff was so friendly and welcoming – there to assist in making each day perfect. The property is beautifully groomed right down to the lime trees.

The bedrooms rooms were very comfortable and cozy. The sound of the ocean was so relaxing as you slept each night followed by your first cup of coffee on the balcony ~ truly a daily reminder you were in paradise. It’s a great place to just chill or explore the beaches and other islands of the BVI.

The accommodations were spectacular …far exceeding expectations. I would highly recommend the Sunset House for a perfect vacation. Can’t wait to return!

A day at Sunset house is a day in paradise.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit and it is even better than I remembered. Already planning our next trip - want to share it with more friends. Can't say enough about the spectacular view from every room, the constant sound of the waves, relaxing swims in the pool and the welcoming staff. Comfortable rooms kept up every day by Jenny, gourmet meals by Cynthia and Loris. Took great day trips to Jost Van Dyke and Norman island and visited local beaches Smuggglers and Cane Garden, each are a must - love my pina coladas. It may sound to good to be true, but luckily it isn't. Sunset house is our preferred vacation destination

Sunset House is the place to be!

  • 5 of 5

Between amazing view and great location it could not get much better. Have dinner at Brandywine, or D' Coal Pot and travel for the day to Jost Van Dyke or take a day sail to Virgin Gorda. For a private and euphoric beach experience, head to Lambert beach/Turtle Bay resort and have the beach all to yourselves and see the amazing waves! Love captain Karam & Crew.

  • 5 of 5

Our third trip to the Sunset House! Always a great time. It is truly paradise. The staff is superb and so accommodating. Cannot rave enough about the service. The views are always breathtaking and it never gets old having morning coffee with a beautiful ocean view. Would highly recommend it for a trip with friends or family. Can't wait to return again! 11/5/16
