Overview

About the property

4 en-suite bedrooms in a secluded 1 acre setting with beautiful gardens

A new Kitchen has been built and Sun deck, and currently 2 new bedrooms. Will be Ready in early 2018 for renting. Situated 300 feet above Long Bay Beach on a secluded hillside, this very private and romantic home is accessed via a scenic drive or staircase winding down the hill, and enjoys captivating long-distance sea vistas and constant 10-20 mph cool tradewinds. Nestled in garlands of flowering allamanda and other island flora, Longview Villa offers four bedroom/bath suites in three pavilions with a generous 40-foot lap pool between them for perfect privacy.  There is both an upper and lower sundeck with the upper one offering spectacular views of surrounding islands and has an outside kitchen for al fresco dining.

The main living room has an inside dining room and there is a newly refurbished kitchen, office/gym. There is a separate laundry room.

All Bedrooms and the Living room are air conditioned for comfort.

As we part of the Long Bay Estate with the hotel below us on the beach for 2 people we will price match in off season (providing they have availability) Long Bay Hotel Beachfront Deluxe Accommodation standard only price. For more than 2 people our Villa may be cheaper than the Hotel price, so why have a hotel room when you can have a whole private Villa? (subject to T&C Excludes Public holiday weeks).

The main pavilion house is air conditioned for comfort, with new Picture patio doors allowing full appreciation of the stunning view. The lounge Diner are has TV, computer and sound system to relax in. The modern caribbean style kitchen has all the items one would wish for cooking at home. Off the main building is one double or twin bedroom which has an ensuite with a unique sunny garden shower.

A patio for outdoor dining, just outside the living area, also leads to the king master bedroom suite on the second pavilion's main level, fully screened and handsomely furnished. Above on Longview Villa's upper level is a further king bedroom/bath suite, complete with its own deck and a charming sitting area; from this level you may enjoy incredible sea views clear to the horizon!

The property has just been bought by Nicholas and Michele but they have been staying and refurbishing the property for the past year. A full container load of furniture was brought over from London UK last year. Extensive painting of the property gives this lovely property a fresh look.

Our close friends Katy and Jon manage the property for us along with their own properties of Limeberry House and Villa. They will meet and greet you on your arrival. They have a well deserved reputation in maintaining properties and ensuring guests are well looked after. Their knowledge of what to do on the island, or where to get items is encyclopedic. Just ask and they will be happy to share their years of local knowledge and experience in looking after guests to ensure you have the perfect paradise time. As always best to plan your trip and we are all here to answer your questions and help in any way we can.

Long Bay enjoys the longest beech on the island a 2 minute drive away or walk for those who feel fit. There are several other beeches on this side of the island just a few minutes away. It never gets crowded, very often you are the only person on the beech. Your holiday can either be one of total relaxation with Serenti spa offering home Massages and total privacy or an adventure holiday with Sailing, Boating, Diving, Snorkelling, Deep sea fishing, Paddle boarding as well as island hopping by boat, plane or helicopter.

Being part of the Long Bay Hotel estate means you have access to the restaurant, beech bar as well as several close restaurants. No need to cook if you do not want to.

In summary I and I here others say "this place is pure Paradise" So true

About Nicholas Lee

Michele and I have been coming to BVI for the past 10 years staying with Katy and Jon who will meet you when you arrive. It has been our dream to own and live in the BVI for many years but finding the right property with the perfect view has taken time. We love the bright colors and all the flowering plants that have been planted. The photo of our family is taken at Pussers in Sopers hole our favorite luncheon spot.

Nicholas Lee purchased this villa in 2016

Why Nicholas Lee chose British Virgin Islands BVI

The View, the Pool, the breeze and one of only a few homes that is fully air conditioned in all rooms. I hear people visiting the island talking to their children that they have traveled the world, as we have, and that the views and the beaches in the BVI are the best in the world. They are unspoiled and many beaches are empty, just the golden sand. Two of the best beaches are a short walk or drive away. This house on a made up road half way up the hill from Long Bay Hotel benefits from the cool breezes that are a constant feature and a sunny location. The Atlantic waves can be heard breaking on the beach below giving a most tranquil sound. We rented the property several times before finally buying the property .

Ultrafast free Wifi in all rooms, USA and UK TV via Dish and FilmonTV

Mosquitoes are generally not a problem in the BVI. At Longview Villa 300ft above sea level with a good constant breeze thanks to the constant North easterly Trade winds of 10 – 20 mph that come from the Southerly side of the island through the dip in the hill of the island and across the house which is situated on a knoll. Bugs do not like this.

We installed out side and inside Dynatraps which attract and kill mosquitoes and other small biting insects. All rooms have mesh to minimize bugs entering the rooms.

We would advise generous use of a good Mosquito replant liberally applied especially around the ankles. Also generous use of Mosquito/fly/bug spray in areas you are sitting helps as well. We ourselves have been coming to the islands for 8 years and generally do not have an issue with mosquitoes and our house seems not to be a real problem we are pleased to say.

Other wild life though on BVI is prolific being a tropical island and to be enjoyed

What makes this villa unique

The view - Totally private (you are not overlooked from any angle) with a lovely 40 foot long heated pool and stunning sun deck. Some guests just do not want to leave. Its very sunny location is complimented by a refreshing constant 10 -20 mph Breeze thanks to its location on a knoll. Situated in and above the Long Bay Hotel resort you have access to the Restaurant for Breakfast, lunch or diner right on the beach front. Strolling on the most beautiful beach is but a few moments away from the villa.

Recently renovated with all new furniture, new modern windows and fully air conditioned. Fast internet all over the property makes keeping in touch or watching films on line just like at home.

We ourselves come and stay from London 4 times a year which gives us the opportunity to ensure the property is in tip top condition for you. Jon and Katy are renowned for looking after guests in their own and also our property and they will ensure you are well looked after.

Kitchen is modern and fresh with a choice of eating Al fresco outside, or in the Lounge Diner in cool air Conditioned room infront of the TV (Both USA and British TV). Home from Home.

Really great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Book this house now! It is perfect for a group. There were three couples in our group and each had their own room with spacious bathroom. The view is breathtaking, pool is delightful and the location is close to so many things. The caretaker was very helpful with local knowledge and responded quickly when we had a small issue with the house generator. I can't think of a single thing that would keep me from booking this house again and again!

Serene beauty and relaxation

  • 4 of 5

This villa is quite the gem, perfect location and even better views! Very clean and well furnished. Equipped with many amenities. The owner and caretaker are both very kind and easy to deal with. The only thing we were somewhat disappointed in was the bedroom situation. I did not understand from the listing that there were two bedrooms that aren't connected in an exterior building, and one bedroom in a separate building along with the living space. We had two children 7 & 11 who we did not feel comfortable leaving alone in one building while we were in the other. So they ended up sleeping on the couches while we slept in the small bedroom. It all worked out, we just didn't get to take advantage of the beautiful bedroom in the other building. The view is unbeatable! The garden shower is very unique and special, it even included some friends while bathing! Overall it is an amazing property and I found it hard to leave. Incredible mornings having coffee on the deck, and when the sky is clear, the star gazing is unbelievable! Thank you Nicholas and Jon!

Great stay at long view, top notch property management

  • 5 of 5

had a terrific family holiday at long view. the house is under new ownership, and they are making some improvements already. they have also engaged with the owners of limeberry villas of Belmont to manage the house -- and as regular travelers to BVI -- we can say we've not encountered any better people in the villa management space. highly recommend a stay here for some good limin' on the hillside with spectacular views, in a central location to many of west end's best beaches and attractions.

nice property. nice location. nicest people.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the feedback. We have worked hard over the year to modernise the Villa. We are so lucky to have Jon and Katy looking after the property to keep it in top notch condition and ensure quests have a wonderful time. Thankyou so much for your feedback.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. We have been busy over the year making improvements and appreciate your suggestions to Jon. We are replacing the main house doors for modern Hurricane patio doors next month which will make a big difference to the main house and allow us to air condition the main house so nice and cool to watch Tv in the evening . Thankyou and so pleased you had a lovely stay.
