What we love
The view alone from this stunning villa made us fall in love at first sight...but the beautifully-designed rooms, amazing gardens and general all-round levels of comfort and luxury, make this a real one-off villa. The other stand-out aspect to this villa are the exceptional staff, and the importance of amazing food....we can′t WAIT to go back!
This fabulous luxury villa in Tortola, the largest island in the British Virgin Islands, is surrounded within a lush oasis of Royal Palms and is perched on a hillside with the most magnificent view from every window. In fact, the views from this villa are amongst our favourites in the entire BVI - which is impressive as there is some very stiff competition!
St. Bernard’s Hill House provides an amazing 300-degree bird’s eye view of the British (BVI) and U.S Virgin Islands. This lofty private hill top location invites cool trade winds to sweep across the generous verandahs, celebrating pampered outdoor island living in style. This incredible location also ensures complete privacy and peace and a feeling of exclusive seclusion, whilst at the same time giving interesting views and the feeling that it′s not far to get to the ′action′, and try out some of the islands bars, restaurants and unbelievable beaches.
It is partly the 8-acre, ′island with an island′ location, but also the full-service nature of this beautiful property that makes St Bernard′s Hill House feel like such a luxurious and utterly spoiling experience. The staff here are fabulous and work very hard to make a stay here an experience to remember... the Estate Managers have lived here for over 10 years and will share their wealth of knowledge with you - from sightseeing to diving and snorkeling - along with expert knowledge on the best and most secluded beaches, they will help you organise whatever would make your perfect BVI stay and they really do offer a personalised service that is second to none.
Your private chef will present you with a menu catering to your tastes well before your arrival, so all of your meals will be prepared and served according to your desires. She will be on hand before your trip to help you not just with the fine cuisine, but with every aspect of your stay.
Dine on delectable dishes prepared fresh every day using local ingredients and herbs picked straight from the villa′s extensive tropical gardens, and enjoy freshly baked breads, home made pasta′s, ice creams and sorbets.
This villa is beautifully designed, stylish and incredibly comfortable. Eclectic, pleasing décor from around the world grace this home, with antique pieces, original Caribbean artwork, white gauzy curtains blowing in the breeze, all adding to it’s charm and natural beauty, and expertly mix ′contemporary colonial′ and luxury Caribbean ′island style'.
The Villa′s new Power Boat, a 30ft Luxury RIB Tender is included, with fully licensed Captain, Snorkeling, Diving and Water Sports Equipment.
