You will enter the property through an imposing mahogany door into a mezzanine level which adjoins the living room with stunning views out to sea. Sweep down the curvaceous staircase into the living room and relax into one of the sumptuous sofas. There is a vast selection of channels on the 38” satellite TV, a good selection of DVDs can be watched on the Blu-Ray DVD. The music system is right there too if you prefer some music to listen to, either using your own ipod/iphone or something from our collection. The wonderful main deck is right outside where you can enjoy the fabulous vista, take a dip in the pool or simply enjoy Alfresco living with lunch around the table.
The mezzanine leads you to the Kitchen with its well appointed high end units with granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances. Even the kitchen sink is a great place to look out at the amazing sea view. Should you need any provisions for your arrival just let us know and this can easily be arranged. The Dining Room beacons you from the kitchen with its majestic views of the islands. The glass and stone table is bespoke in this open air pavilion and gives a nice airy feeling to your dining experience. The dining area is also a great place at night which provides an elegant setting for dinner, whether you are cooking yourself or if you decide to bring a chef in.
From the Dining Room you have easy access down a curving opening arms staircase to the splendorous main deck, planters are filled with local palms, bird of paradise, heliconia, gingers and bougainvillea. Once at the pool, take a dip, enjoy the views and relax in the sun on the comfortable sun beds. An outdoor shower is on the deck. In the evening enjoy this area with a cocktail, watch the sun go down, marvel at the fabulous pool colour sequences (programme your personal colour favourites). You might want to rev it up a bit, put on some music and have some friends over you have met during your stay. Alfresco villa Tortola is the place to stay.
All rooms have large sliding doors which disappear into the walls to open up the house, this offers open plan living and complete flexibility to move around Alfresco with ease. Plenty of books are available, if you don’t finish one take it home, please leave one in its place so the next guest has some reading pleasure too. Board games are provided for an evening in.
The bedroom pavilion offers an upper level Master Suite. This has beautiful views of the islands and beyond from the balcony and spacious outdoor private deck.

You can marvel at the wonderful wood ceiling as you look up from your king size bed handcrafted in reclaimed teak from Bali. You will be sleeping under Egyptian cotton percale which will give you a luxurious night’s sleep. If you stay in October, there is a wonderful Jacaranda tree full of cotton like flowers which cascades over the outdoor private terrace leading out from the bathroom. The second bedroom can be found at deck level and offers comfy easy access. You can choose either twins or a king size bed for this room depending on your needs. Same Egyptian cotton for that perfect night’s sleep. Again this bathroom is finished in lovely stone Travertine and natural pebbles with beautifully bespoke mill work in the bathroom. The private wrap around deck can be used as another area to relax and enjoy your stay.
The third bedroom is very private and leads down from the main deck via steps to an outdoor space overlooking trees and landscape.

About Allison or Neil
25 years ago we spent a holiday here and fell in love with The BVI.We bought our 1st property on that vacation and bought an acre of land 10 years later. It took a long time to decide what to build but in 2012 our dream was completed.
Allison or Neil purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Allison or Neil chose Tortola
We had a choice of 2 plots of land, but this was by far the best and offered a fantastic view, proximity to the beach and a great location at the west end of the island where you can enjoy magnificent sunsets.
What makes this Villa unique
This villa is located above the best beach on Tortola and is only 10 minutes drive from other great beaches .

A beautiful place to be able to call home for a week!
We had a wonderful stay on Tortola in Alfresco. The house is gorgeous, with outdoor spaces abounding - plenty of room to gather as a family (5, with 3 older children) and plenty of space, indoor and out, to read to find privacy to read or nap or enjoy the view. Luxuriating in the pool looking out over the ocean to Jost Van Dyke is amazing, and having everything so well laid out and appointed around you made our week a dream. The island itself is an adventure to discover. The guidebook in the house is very helpful and we found our way to many different beaches on the North Side where we snorkeled and relaxed, climbed Sage Mountain, rented a boat for the day, and enjoyed dinners out as well as in. The owners will recommend 4W drive and it is very handy to have - we had some rain showers and it makes you feel nice and secure to have 4W drive under you. Making the arrangements couldn't have been easier, and everyone involved was extremely helpful and responsive to our questions in preparation for going and while we were there. Thank you for helping us have a wonderful family vacation!
Views, Views, and More Views!!
Our family had a wonderful time at Alfresco. Allison and Sam were very helpful and they were available whenever you had a question. Thank you so much! Their efforts to make our visit seamless started before we arrived and continued until we were on the home bound ferry.
Alfresco is a very special home and we enjoyed every minute of our stay there. We found the kitchen well-appointed and we had everything we needed to cook great meals. The layout of the house allowed everyone their own space and also privacy when desired. It would have been nice to have had air conditioning in the main house though. The July temperatures made it difficult to cook until well after sundown. However, that just meant more time in the gorgeous pool and taking in the absolutely breathtaking views. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us.
We sought out Tortola in hopes of finding some quiet, relaxing family time. The biggest part of that hope was finding the perfect place to call home for a week. Alfresco was that answer. The house was stunning, with views that caught your eye every time you turned your head. We used the well-appointed kitchen most nights, including grilling out under the stars with the sound of the ocean in the background. While we did several day trips to places like Virgin Gorda, Smuggler's Cove, and Roadtown, everybody was most content spending the days being lazy by the pool...reading, sleeping, and laughing. My family left feeling content, rested, and most importantly, reconnected.
A special Thank You to Allison and Sam for staying in contact with us, helping up organize a car rental, and detail the best ways to get to the island. Their help was immeasurable and provided some comfort for these relatively inexperienced travelers!
An absolutely amazing experience, and a most perfect home for those wanting to "get away from it all"!
Beautiful Rental Home
We had an amazing trip to Tortola. Alfresco is an incredible house! We travel a lot and we have rented numerous houses over the years! I can honestly say Alfresco is on the top of our list!!! It reminded me of those doll houses that folded shut and you carried around as a child. Alfresco was the doll house unfolded with the most spectacular views! We usually go, go, go on vacation. We found ourselves being much more laid back and spending much more time in our rental home!
Thank you so much for your patience and your wiliness to work with us. What a gift to spend a week in your home. Amazing!!!! We will definitely be back!
My family of 6 recently spent 10 days at Alfresco and it was an amazing vacation! The location on the West End is the perfect place for peace and quiet but also very close to so many beaches and restaurants. Sam and JC were a huge help as we planned days trips and other activities. They even put up a Christmas tree for our family! We highly recommend this beautiful property! It is an adventure to drive to but that added a lot of fun and laughs in our family. We will be back!
Return trip was just as fabulous as the first time!!!!!!
Our second visit to Alfresco and we loved it so much last time we brought friends this time. They had an equally fantastic impression and experience. Allison and Sam were wonderful again, every detail catered to. They were wonderful with suggestions on activities and car rentals; everything was seemless. The location is wonderful, so peaceful and quiet but close to activity and ferry's when we wanted to venture out. The men had the tough job of running down the hill and grabbing some wraps for lunch, while the ladies waited for the delivery basking in the sun at the pool. Pretty rough life, wish we could have stayed longer. Snorkeling great in Smuggler's Cove, ferry close for our day trip to JVD, day on Virgin Gorda was wonderful. Heck, writing this review is hard sitting back in Kansas City......really wish I was back on the pool deck taking in the views!!! Thanks again Allison and Sam for all you did to make the stay what it was. See you next year (or sooner if we become independently wealthy and I don't have to work anymore!!! Ha.)
