Description & Details of Summer Heights
One of the best Tortola vacation homes is Summer Heights in the BVI. Perched on a hillside, 500' above the ocean, in the midst of a green oasis, this lovely Tortola vacation villa is situated on Tortola's south coast just a short drive from the beaches, shops and nightlife of the island. Guests, who stay at Summer Heights, describe this Tortola holiday home as a peaceful hideaway with amazing views that seem to go on forever one of the best in Tortola! Overlooking the Sir Francis Drake Channel, you can see all the way from Ginger Island in the east to Coral Bay in St John in the west. On a clear day, you can even see St Croix, over 30 miles away. If you are an early riser, the sunrise is spectacular! At night, the clear, uncluttered sky offers a wonderful opportunity for stargazing.

This beautiful villa rental in Tortola is approached up a winding road through the breezy green hills of the private residential area known as Havers Estate. On arrival, a broad staircase of Mexican coral tile leads through the double entry doors to a sunny enclosed courtyard with an expansive deck of crushed coral and the swimming pool, lined with cobalt blue tiles.

A roofed poolside area provides a beautiful setting for casual dining, with the adjacent gourmet kitchen and bar immediately at hand. A curved glass brick wall separates the kitchen from the very spacious lounge. Here you find comfortable, overstuffed sofas for lounging in front of the TV, as well as a computer desk. The desktop computer has WiFi and long distance calls can be made by VOIP using Skype or MagicJack.

Just along the deck from the lounge, are four similar bedroom suites. The two lower suites open onto a semi-shaded deck hung with a double hammock while the upper two open to private balconies. The fifth suite opens directly onto the pool deck. This room also features a sitting area and a walk-in closet. Each of the five suites has a beautiful ocean view and features an impressive teak king four-poster bed with deep comfortable mattress, en suite bathroom, air-conditioning and flat screen TV with integral DVD.

Summer Heights is a luxury rental home in Tortola and a relaxed and restful haven conveniently located to town, shops, restaurants and West End beaches. It is an easy fifteen minute drive to Road Town where you will find the three main fully stocked supermarkets. The closest beach is at Long Bay, a ten minute drive west and Smuggler's Cove, which we think is Tortola's best beach, is just another few minutes further on. Nanny Cay Marina, a water sports and boating centre, is less than five minutes from Summer Heights. From here, you can rent snorkel gear, arrange SCUBA diving or rent a powerboat.

Barry & Rosalind Rice, offer their home to rent in Tortola. They personally built and now maintain Summer Heights in immaculate condition. Originally from England, their own accommodations are tucked away on the lower eastern side of the property, completely separate from the villa's amenities. For more than 20 years, they have hosted guests on their beautiful 72-foot sailing yacht, Endless Summer II, in the BVI. If she is not on charter, ask about the possibility of a day sail to one of the neighbouring islands. Barry & Roz are always available to offer advice on where to go & what to do. However, they will respect your wish for total privacy, if you so indicate.

Reviews for Summer Heights
We had a wonderful time at Summer Heights!! The rooms were great with super comfortable beds and cozy accommodations. I loved waking up every morning to the sound of the ocean and the most AMAZING view! And our group had a great time swimming in the private pool and BBQ-ing each night. Summer Heights really made our stay in BVI wonderful.

Barry and Ros are really great hosts. They are very helpful in locating where the beautiful spots are, and gave us really good recommendations on where to eat too. They even helped us bring our luggage up from the ferry as our car did not have enough space to carry both us and the luggage! As for the house, it is beautiful, I totally recommend this spot to whomever chooses to vacation at Tortola. The view is absolutely spectacular, the rooms are huge with enough bathrooms for everyone, each one of them facing the ocean. Kitchen is very well stocked with cooking equipment, and the pool was a lot of fun!! Highly, highly recommend this vacation home. :)

Beautiful house and even more beautiful view. Would come back again and again. Thank you Barry!

We had the opportunity to spend a week at Summer Heights. We could not have chosen a better place. The villa is warm and inviting, and Barry and Roz are great hosts. The villa is located up on a hill with unobstructed views of the ocean and surrounding islands. The pictures really don't do the place justice. The views were simply breathtaking. The house is quiet and the only thing you hear is the gentle ocean. It is also a short drive away from some of the best beaches in Tortola and the town center. Each of the bedrooms also had an incredible view. The rooms also had nice comfortable beds, clean linens, and their own private bathrooms. We would highly recommend Summer Heights to anyone visiting BVI and hope to visit again soon.
