Perfect Villa with amazing views
Susanna is wonderful and helped us several times throughout our stay. The property has wonderful views looking at Norman & Peter Island. The drive up to the house is a bit steep so would recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle (especially if it rains).
Heaven on Earth
Summer Heights is a beautiful setting with a fab view and the comfort and space to enjoy as a group or privately for multiple couples. The drive up the switchback road is a great experience and shows the vision that the builder had and his love of the property and the island. We had our entire crew for a sailing transport and it was the perfect place to eat, rest, plan, work and enjoy big beds, good showers, great kitchen and more before spending 8 days on a sailboat!
Summer Heights has an incredible view!! Dian (the housekeeper) is a sweetheart and definitely wants to please. The pool was nice and the pool deck was great. The 10 of us (two families with young adults in their 20's) spent most nights eating at our lovely table overlooking the Caribbean. So awesome!! The bedrooms and beds were comfortable and the air conditioning in the bedrooms was great and very much appreciated. The common areas aren't air conditioned and we sometimes got hot while cooking if there wasn't a breeze. The island was having trouble with their cable so we weren't able to watch any TV but it's not that we needed to (except for NBA and Stanley Cup playoffs). We also had trouble with being able to use the music provided so we bought a small speaker. Overall, the accommodations are very comfortable and clean although a bit dated. After visiting numerous Caribbean islands, we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent grocery store in Roadtown (the 'big" Rite Way). You get used to the Summer Heights' driveway but it's a bit scary at first! We enjoyed diving, a catamaran sail, trips to various beaches (including trips to Jost van Dike via the West End Ferry at $25 round trip) and some excellent local restaurants. The customs people at the ferry are nice but incredibly slow so be prepared for a long wait if you use the ferry system. Some of our group flew in and didn't have that problem but the airport is 45-60 minutes away. You definitely need a 4-wheel drive vehicle to get around (lots of hills!!). Overall, Summer Heights is an excellent and gorgeous place to stay and we had a fantastic vacation!
Our stay at Summer Heights was everything we had hoped for, and more. The panoramic views from the villa are breathtaking and the pool was very refreshing after a long day of adventures. Our teenage girls spent hours playing in the pool and hanging out on the pool deck. The bedrooms are all very comfortable (we echo what others have said about the beds!!), the kitchen is well stocked, including a gas grill which we used several times, and the living room is great for hanging out and watching a movie. We spent countless hours in the hammock enjoying the views to the neighboring islands.
Thanks to Dian who met us at the ferry, helped us locate the rental car and led us up the steep winding road to the villa. She also took us to a local market so we could stock up for our trip.
One note of caution regarding the Tortola Fast Ferry (Smiths). We unfortunately missed our morning ferry because they decided to depart 20 minutes early, which resulted in us missing our flight back to Miami. In spite of this, it was overall a great experience and we would stay at Summer Heights again and strongly recommend this venue for other visitors.
Beutiful villa in Tortola with an AMAZING view!
Summer Heights Villa was the perfect vacation home for our group of 11 in the BVIs. Barry made us feel right at home from the moment we got off the ferry and was available and helpful through out our stay. The house had all the amenities you could ask for, and the view was breathtaking. We spent many nights poolside watching sunsets over the islands. The villa is in a great location; a 20 minutes drive to most of the restaurants, beaches and other attractions. The house itself was plenty big for our group of 11 adults. The beds were very comfortable, kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need to prepare meals at home, but the outdoor area steals the show. The pool was essential for dips during the hot afternoon hours but the location of the house and the breeze kept us cool at night. The housekeeper, Dian, cooked for our group one night, which was excellent! Summer Heights is truly a special place and you can tell that Barry and Roz have put a lot of love into creating a wonderful space to relax and unwind. We had a wonderful vacation here and couldn't have asked for anything better!
BVI June 2016
We returned to Summer Heights as the location is wonderful for us a couple of doors away from my cousin and to enjoy the peace and serenity of the BVI and magical views. We were celebrating our daughters 21st Birthday and therefore wanted everything to be special. Indeed it did not disappoint
Everything in the Villa that you could possible need is there for you too enjoy. The large ensuite bedrooms with air-conditioning and Mosquito blinds comfortable double beds with the option of two single beds in one bedroom. Games Cd’s and a computer in the lounge was also another added bonus. There are plenty of books to cover every literary taste and plenty of local magazines offering very useful information about the Islands, boat hire and restaurants.
The large utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer are very useful if you don’t want to pack too much to take with you. Although we did not cook that much we had the use of a cooker microwave and very large fridge freezer. Had we of wanted to we could have probably catered for the whole Island with the amount of crockery and cutlery in the Villa.
The pool is a must in the heat and we made good use of it the friendly pool technician maintained this twice a week for us. A particularly good feature was that it had pool lights on all night just in case of sleep walkers I guess or youngsters wanting a midnight dip!
We left Summer Heights with sadness that we could not stay longer but we have met and made many friends and our memories of a wonderful holiday here will live on.
