The photo shows our boys hauling in a monster lobster they spotted on a family snorkel. With no equipment on them, they engineered a snare on the beach, held their breath and dove down to catch dinner. With the exception of Dave - Carolina, John and Derek were born and raised on Tortola and we have spent time exploring the BVI with a passion. Whether discovering our secret lobster and fishing spots, to surfing little known breaks, to exploring islands and hideaway beaches, we have certainly made the most of our time in the BVI. As winners of the "How well do you know the BVI?" contest it is safe to say that we are true "locals." We are a very active outdoorsy family and all of us have an abundant appreciation for the beauty and the activities that surround us. We have been regular participants in the local sporting scene. Among our family is a BVI national champion triathlete, a 2 time Junior National 5k champion as well as winners of local Judo, cycling, fishing, tennis, paddle boarding, and swimming events. We have recently moved from Tortola to further our children's educational opportunities and are pleased to open our home to others who share the same appreciation for the area. We would be delighted to host you and share our decades of experience living in the BVI to help you maximize your vacation!
Owner/Manager purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Owner/Manager chose Belmont
We were fortunate enough to pick our parcel of land and then construct a home to our liking. Having grown up in the BVI, we were very familiar with some of the challenges of living on an island. We wanted easy access to the beach, but did not want to be right on the beach due to hurricane surges, sand flies, and the fact that beaches are open to the public 24 hours a day. We desired a view but did not wish to have to drive to the beach. Further, we wanted to build in a high end community with great privacy that was close to some of the islands best sporting opportunities. The areas finest swimming/snorkeling, mountain biking, paddle boarding/kayaking, hiking and surfing are immediately accessible from our villa.
What makes this Villa unique
This is our family's home. In fact it is the only home our children have known and now that it is available as a short term rental, there are many unique benefits. All bedrooms have their own private balcony and bathroom. Our downstairs suite is accessed through its own entrance, has a kitchenette, living area, desk, outdoor shower and can sleep 2-5 making it ideal for a multiple family vacation. With your rental we offer a number of our personal "toys" which could result in saving you hundreds of even thousands of dollars. Paddleboard, boogie boards, mountain bikes, surfboards, kayaks, etc. come with your stay. Perhaps better than the cost savings is simply the convenience of having these options ready to use at any time. For kids, our Turtle Pen housing our 3 Red Footed Tortoises Albert, Scratcher, and Tortilla is a highlight and much talked about aspect of the villa. Power cuts are frequent and we have a standby generator. If power goes the generator goes on automatically so you don't have to do anything. Rain squalls can make outdoor dining problematic, but not in our villa. Our outdoor dining patio is in the lee of the wind and under a massive covered deck allowing dining in such conditions. With the combination of a stellar location, great accommodation, and personal touches not found elsewhere this villa is ideal for families or even multi families looking for a true Caribbean vacation experience.

Great location for couples or family. Beautiful home and views.
Had a terrific week with 2 families at smugglers lookout. Great house in a great location. No issues. The local beaches there are amazing. Try to get out in the water when you are there. Excellent vacation home base in BVI. Hope to return to paradise sooner than later!
The house is well laid out with incredible views. We would highly recommend this property.
A true paradise...
Great place to stay in Tortola with a "Million dollar view". Very nice house, clean and comfortable that gives you "home away from home" feel. Location is bit secluded, but very convenient and close to the one of the best beaches on the island. Great experience overall. Would come back in a snap...
The property is beautiful and the views are incredible. The home was just lovely, very well maintained and cared for, great furnishings and every item that you think you might ever need was there. There's a very short walk to Smuggler's Bay and then you're on the beach! The location was convenient, close to a small grocery store and some nice restaurants. I also can't say enough good things about the owner - he's very easy to work with, prompt in his replies and his caretaker was also very helpful. We can't wait to return!
While the Belmont Estate area is known for the incredible views and close proximity to some of the best beaches imaginable, very few people are aware that the area around our villa is slated to become a national park. Our villa abuts this land where there are historic ruins, an archeological dig, the largest coconut grove on Tortola, and nature hikes that are virtually unknown. Make sure to inquire about "local" secrets that reside within a quarter of a mile of our villa!
