About the property

5 Bedroom/5 1/2 bath On Ocean With Private Dock and Fantastic Snorkelling

The BVI’s “Signature Villa”. Named after the peninsula upon which this unique home is perched, 'Steele Point' is located on the very western tip of Tortola in the breathtaking British Virgin Islands, an island surrounded by the most beautiful sailing waters in the world.

Built atop a 90 foot rock headland and reaching all the way down to its own private dock, 'Steele Point' is quite simply timeless. It offers complete privacy, unobstructed views of the opalescent waters below and a dramatic 360 degree panorama of ocean, yachts and largely undeveloped islands. The structure is a dazzling triumph of structural grace and ingenuity, attributes that prompted it to be featured in many luxury magazines, including Architectural Digest. In 2010, Caribbean Travel and Life noted that Steele Point is “…doubtless one of the most astonishing rental homes on earth”. Since then, this iconic property has benefited from a two year complete refurbishment and is in immaculate condition.

The main house welcomes you with an open, airy feeling. The villa features patios, courtyards, indoor and alfresco dining areas, and five air-conditioned suites, all with private full baths. The raised, open plan living, dining and kitchen area has been completely remodeled. The professional grade kitchen has been ingeniously re-fashioned and re-shaped to work wonderfully in the space. Millwork, countertops and appliances are all of the highest standard. The lounge area, which like the rest of the house has been completely refinished, is light, relaxed and comfortable, and features all modern conveniences. The dock can accommodate the largest of yachts. And there are few more romantic places on the planet to share a meal than on the covered dining terrace at Steele Point!

The Hibiscus suite is adjacent to the main living area with stunning views of the Caribbean Sea. The Frangipani Suite is considered the master suite with 360° views of the entire peninsula (although there is little to choose between any of the bedrooms). It is the highest point on the estate and a lover’s delight, set at a discreet distance from the main house with a king bed, a private bath, and outdoor shower. Look left and survey the islands of Little Thatch, Great Thatch and St. John. Look right and spot Great Tobago and Little Tobago, Jost Van Dyke, Green Cay and Sandy Spit.

On the next level down is the very secluded Gardenia Suite with a king bed, and a private sunbathing deck with private terrace where you can relax to the sound of the soothing surf. Just under the Gardenia Suite are the Orchid and Palm Suites. Each is a king bedroom suite at sea level. Both are flanked by very private stone terraces and balconies to catch the cool sea breeze. Views can be enjoyed from the private verandas over looking spiral stairs that lead to the private dock, which can accommodate the largest of yachts, and a private cove in the Cliffside. The dock is also ideal for swimming, snorkeling and diving.

Every detail in this custom home is a masterpiece of design; a collection of fine art and original sculpture adorn this property inside and out. Enjoy waterfront dining, spectacular sunsets, and ultimate privacy at 'Steele Point'. While it has the breathtaking beauty, sumptuous luxury, and exclusive privacy of a private island, this gated peninsula is within easy driving distance of Tortola's casual gourmet restaurants and Tortola’s white sand beaches. The property is only a few minute’s drive from Tortola’s most westerly Port of Entry making customs clearance for those arriving via St. Thomas or via their own private boat really simple. A brand new helicopter pad has also just been installed. The only disturbance at Steele Point? The sounds of sails flapping in the wind as the numerous beautiful sailboats drift by.

About Irina Wilson Gage

Our family bought the Steele Point Estate in 2000 when we fell in love with this incredible point on our planet.

Since then our family has changed - we have blended beautifully and are now the parents of 6 children, 7 grandchildren.

We are semi-retired after spending most of our lives in the exciting world of the arts and Bio-tech.

Why Irina Wilson Gage chose British Virgin Islands BVI

Steele Point Estate is perhaps one of the most unique, and stunningly picturesque, properties anywhere in the world. The property encompasses the entire Western Peninsula of the Island of Tortola. The estate is exclusively private, with four homes, all with magnificent views and unique tropical open architectural styles. Quite simply it was a most intriguing opportunity for the family to own not just a piece of paradise in the British Virgin Islands, but also one of the most impressive properties anywhere in the world.

What makes this villa unique

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! The peninsula itself is one of the many headlands that make up the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Beyond the channel is picturesque St. John however, the view from Gestalt is of the 7,000+ acres of undeveloped National Park. If the aforementioned views were not enough, from Gestalt you can also see BVI National Parks, Great Thatch Island, Sandy Cay, and Sandy Spit along with eight other islands. Another unique feature of this property is living on the very peninsula where quite literally the Atlantic and Caribbean converge. Furthermore being part of the Steele Point Estate this villa is directly in the center of not just the USVI or BVI, but all the Virgin Islands. Everything wonderful that the Virgin Islands has to offer is equidistant and easily accessible. Lastly, because the peninsula is a gated estate you have the privacy of a private island, but the convenience of being on BVI's main island.

The most amazing experience of my life!

  • 5 of 5

I was lucky enough to stay in the Steele Point house this Winter, and everything from start to finish was beyond words.

The house itself was extraordinary... The architecture was amazing, and the view from our bedroom was amazing. It was a short distance from both a local beach where you could rent beach equipment, enjoy lunch as well as cocktails and also a short distance from a local restaurant!

The best part about our whole trip was the everything was so convenient... The car rental and Ferry dock were less than a mile from our house, groceries could be delivered to the house for us, and the beach and local bars were only a short walking distance away.

I would recommend the Steele Point villa for anyone looking for a relaxing, and totally private vacation!

This famous ultra-deluxe estate, once featured in Architectural Digest, is situated on its own private and gated 8-acre peninsula featuring 360-degree blue ocean views, a private dock for swimming, snorkeling and boating, a cliffside pool and an attentive and discreet staff.

Glorious natural lush landscaping accented with lofty palms insures uncompromised privacy. The top garden level features patios with a grill, courtyards, the living area, indoor and alfresco dining areas, a gourmet kitchen, and an air-conditioned king bedroom adjoined by a luxurious full bath.

On the next level down is the very secluded and air-conditioned king master suite with its own private sunbathing deck. Down yet another level, just a stone's throw from the sea, are the third and fourth air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suites, each flanked by very private stone terraces and balconies to catch the cool sea breezes and the sounds of soothing surf. The fifth suite is a lovers' delight: an air-conditioned separate pavilion set at a discreet distance from the main house with a king bed and a fantastic view of the Point. Upon arrival, you and your guests may each choose any bedroom you wish.

Steele Point's expansive dock area is complete with sheltered sun decks (one a sandy, totally secluded nook for two, for nude sunbathing), and ladders for swimming and snorkeling.

Every detail in this custom home is a masterpiece of design; a collection of fine art and original sculpture adorn this property inside and out. Enjoy waterfront dining and spectacular sunsets; Steele Point offers the discriminating traveler the ultimate in luxury...five stars! (Steele Point may also be rented in conjunction with The Treehouse, Gestalt and/or Blackbeard's Hideaway, three more villas which are a part of Steele Point Estate to accommodate larger parties of up to 26 persons - please see Gestalt, the Treehouse and Blackbeard's Hideaway.

This legendary, exclusive Caribbean hideaway for royals, pop stars and the international jet set is magical year round, with lots of fun family-friendly activities, events and opportunities to create fabulous memories.
