This comfortable home is named 'Pelican Peak' and it is has been our family dream home for many years.
A five-minute rural winding road with some radical switchbacks brings you up to the house, situated on the top of a mountain overlooking Little Apple Bay at the western part of the small island of Tortola.
The property consists of two houses; the main house and a guest house. Together they can accommodate six adults and including children a total of 8 people.
The house is equipped with every amenity you need to make your stay perfect. The land covers one acre and will guarantee you privacy and peace.
There is a beautiful big pool (22ftX15ft) to cool you during the daytime or in the evening under the stars.
The property is fenced, and there is a gate that leads to a gravel driveway covered on one side in bougainvillea where you without difficulty can park three cars.
The garden around the villa is beautifully landscaped; you will find all sorts of lovely Caribbean flowers and fruit like bananas, limes, star fruit, sugar apples, and pineapples.
The house is only suitable for children from 6 years and older that can swim; in the guest house is a bunk bed for children and upstairs in the main house is a lovely bedroom. Around the house is plenty of grass, space and shade.
We have one lovely (old) house cat named Habibi who lives outside. She is our only full-time staff member who is there to keep mouse etc. far away from our beautiful home.
The main villa has two bedrooms; a master bedroom with a king bed downstairs and a second big bedroom with two queen beds upstairs.
The master bedroom has an attached outside bathroom with impressive views of many surrounding islands and the azure Caribbean waters.
An authentic spiral staircase leads up to the second bedroom which has a dark wooden floor, high ceiling and is attractively decorated. The views from this bedroom are stunning, overlooking the Jost Van Dyke channel, which is dotted with small islands such as Green Cay, Sandy Spit, and Sandy Cay. Note: The bathroom for this bedroom is at the bottom of the stairs.
All bedrooms have air conditioning which is much appreciated in summer months. The living room and kitchen are fully open (but screened) to the veranda, usually cooled by a lovely trade wind.
The master bedroom and the living room/open kitchen have large wooden doors that open up the whole wall onto a verandah where you find a second living area with a dining table that seats up to eight people and a relaxing sitting area.
Because most of the living room/kitchen is open to the deck, the verandah, and main house feel like one space.
The guest house is separated from the main house by a swimming pool and lawn. The guest house can sleep, four people. There is a king bed and bunk beds. The bunk beds are not in a separate room but in a divided area, so we would suggest these beds are only used for children. Also, the guest house has large wooden doors that open completely from floor to the ceiling, so while reading a book on the king bed, you enjoy the beautiful sunsets that you can expect to see here every day.
From anywhere within the main villa, the guest house, outside on the deck, swimming in the pool, relaxing on the daybed or sitting elsewhere in the garden you will be able to see far and wide across the Caribbean sea while you are listening to the waves breaking on Little Apple Bay’s beach.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the house so please email us.
