About the Property

Villa Somoya - Privacy and elegance with spectacular views of 19 US/BVI islands!

INTRODUCTION

Villa Somoya is Virgin Gorda’s newest luxury villa. Construction of this 4,500 square foot home was completed in August 2014. Please see our video to view the fantastic views from atop the ridge where the villa commands views from all angles.

This 3-bedroom / 3 bathroom home sits on a hilltop ridge and features spectacular views. From the home’s elevated setting guests can see up to 19 U.S and British Virgin Islands in a stunning panorama of blue seas and rock formations.

Thoughtfully designed to coexist with Virgin Gorda’s natural setting, Villa Somoya is nestled among giant granite boulders that reveal the island’s volcanic origins. The property’s indigenous trees and rock formations have been preserved and further enhanced with landscaped gardens. The villa’s setting makes it hard to tell where nature ends and Villa Somoya begins.

Centrally located in a private and exclusive residential area, Villa Somoya is 5 minutes drive from a dozen restaurants, half-dozen grocery stores, and the island’s best beaches including Little Trunk Bay, Spring Bay, and The Baths. The location is ideal!

DESCRIPTION

Villa Somoya is made up of two buildings surrounded by expansive outdoor decks and covered terraces. The use of exotic woods and the inclusion of high-end fixtures and appliances give this home a sophisticated and upscale vibe. The villa’s furnishings are the perfect blend of classic design with Caribbean accents.

A number of spectacular design features make Villa Somoya a great home for gathering with family and friends. The villa’s well-equipped and modern kitchen features a large breakfast bar that opens to a covered terrace. Also on the terrace you will find the villa’s outdoor kitchen with a built in gas grill and mini-fridge. Completing this space, a large dining table makes it easy for guests to enjoy alfresco dining.

The villa’s bedroom suites are spacious, air conditioned, and designed for comfort. Each bedroom is equipped with a private bathroom. The villa’s master suite features a private patio that overlooks the property and has views to Tortola and beyond.

OUTDOORS SPACES

With out a doubt, guests of Villa Somoya are going to enjoy this home’s outdoor spaces. The large covered terrace features a wide variety of seating options and provides plenty of shade from the sun. The terrace also features a Bose audio sound system and a motorized mirrored disco ball that transforms the space when the sun goes down.

In front of the covered patio is a deck lined with lounge chairs. Guests looking to work on their tan can do so while enjoying panoramic water views.

Between the villa’s guest bedrooms, a wooden deck is home to one of the property’s most spectacular vistas. This natural breezeway is a great spot for soaking in the views.

BEDROOMS

Villa Somoya’s 3-bedroom can sleep up to 6 adults. The Master Suite and one of the guest bedrooms both feature King sized beds. The third bedroom features two Queen sized beds.

Larger groups, up to 8 guests, can also be accommodated. For example, 4 adults can sleep in the villa’s two King sized beds and up to 4 children can sleep in the villa’s two Queen beds. Alternatively, supplemental bedding including a pull out couch in the great room as well as two portable Twin mattresses, give guests additional flexibility when it comes to sleeping arrangements. For families with babies or toddlers a pack n’ play and a crib are also available.

In certain situations we are willing to consider groups larger than 8 people. Please let us know the make-up of your party and we will help you determine if Villa Somoya is a good fit.

Villa Somoya is located on a ridge set inside a private estate community with commanding views in one direction of the windswept Atlantic Ocean breaking on a reef - and in the other, the Sir Francis Drake Channel. 19 U.S. and British Virgin Islands are visible from the many decks that have been designed into this hilltop retreat for just this purpose. Villa Somoya is far enough away from everything to guarantee privacy, but close enough for easy access to breathtaking beaches- including Spring Bay, the Crawl, Valley Trunk, Little Dix Bay, Savannah Bay and the world famous 'Baths'. You are also only a few miles from Spanish Town, the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor, Coppermine Point and its historic ruins as well as many local restaurants. Most places of interest, including the north end of the island are located within 20 minutes of the villa. The British Virgin Islands are referred to as 'Nature's Little Secrets' and Villa Somoya is perfectly located to serve as your home base to explore all that Virgin Gorda has to offer.

Many guests find themselves being adventurous and taking day trips to the many beaches that surround the island. With crystal clear water, the snorkeling is excellent and the reefs right off the beaches allow for easy swims. The two main roads that go around Gorda Peak to the north side of the island have a number of viewing decks and offer a panoramic view of the Caribbean.

Of course, you may prefer the quiet solitude of this spectacularly angled villa and enjoy looking at the unspoiled natural foliage that extends from the boulders that surround the villa down to the reef below. Amazing views are visible no matter which direction you look.

 

Owner info

About the owner: We came to Virgin Gorda as tourists and fell in love with the island, its culture and people. We decided to build a home here and Villa Somoya is the output of that effort. The home was completed in August of 2014.

Why the Owner Chose Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands:
This property overlooks the island from a number of unique vantage points. You can see and hear the Atlantic Ocean breaking on the reef below. You can observe completely unspoiled tracts of land. The highest peak on the island, Gorda Peak, is visible in the distance with the reef in the foreground. In the other direction the view allows you to see up to 19 U.S. and British Virgin Islands in a sweeping panorama. The views in every direction are fantastic and they are constantly changing as the weather floats by overhead. We fell in love with the idea of a mountaintop retreat where you can see it all and be close enough to do it all, but in total privacy and seclusion. That is what we were looking for and we're confident that you'll feel the same. We welcome you to come and experience Villa Somoya for yourself.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
To see the true beauty of the villa, please view the attached video in the photo and vidoe link area. Villa Somoya allows you to have all the privacy of a "get-away from it all" vacation AND be minutes from everything that you'd like to do. All the best beaches, restaurants and bars are just a few miles away- so the location is the perfect blend of close, but also private and secluded. Villa Somoya is nestled in a private community (Princess Quarters Estates) where much of the indigenous plants, shrubs and trees are still present. The ridge upon where the villa is located allows you to take in the full view of the area. If you like panoramic, this is the place for you. The villa has a commanding view of the entire south western side of the island from an elevation that puts you above it all. You can view the rugged windswept Atlantic, the Sir Francis Drake Channel or the island itself. But if you choose to close your eyes, and swing in the hammock or sit on any number of the relaxation decks, you can just listen to the waves crash on the reef below and smell that unforgettable mixture of ocean salt and tropical island all blend together. It's an idyllic spot and we hope you will enjoy all that the villa has to offer.
