stunning! The natural beauty surrounding this first-class, ultra-deluxe
private beach estate will truly take your breath away; your choice
of two perfect white-sand beaches are just steps away from Sol
y Sombra through either of two carved gates.
Entering this enchanting villa, a coralstone staircase
leads you down through luxuriant landscaping where the drama of
this superb property unfolds: four pavilions within the fully-fenced
and gated manicured grounds embrace a sweeping coralstone terrace
set with a large infinity-edge pool and bordered by an expanse
of green lawn.
The spacious main pavilion offers a large Great
Room with a state-of-the-art entertainment system, a shaded terrace
with wet bar just outside, and is flanked by a formal dining room
which seats 12 (with additional seating for 8 just outside on
the covered terrace; perfect for lazy breakfasts) and a wonderful
gourmet kitchen fully equipped with a Viking gas range, wine fridge
and all expected SubZero and Cuisinart appliances. Adjoining is
the office, completely outfitted with a computer, printer, fax,
cable TV, etc. and a half bath.
Just outside and at one end of the pool is the second
pavilion offering an air-conditioned king master suite with its
own covered verandah, walk-in closet and a beautiful bath with
an exotic alfresco shower looking out to a burst of tropical flowers.
On the other end of the pool is Sol y Sombra's second
pavilion, ingeniously built around huge smooth boulders for which
Virgin Gorda is famous. This pavilion offers a pool level air-conditioned
bedroom/bath suite with two twin beds and its own verandah, and
above it via a staircase curving around a mammoth boulder is the
unique second air-conditioned master suite. This dramatic bedroom/bath
suite opens out to a pergola terrace, a private and breathtaking
vantage point offering fantastic sea views off the Baths and of
green islands and cays to the horizon.
The Tennis Suite, an air-conditioned guest house,
is situated behind the Great Room pavilion, just across the estate's
private tennis court, and boasts its own air-conditioned sitting
room with two twin daybeds, cable TV and a kitchenette; an air-conditioned
king bedroom and full bath adjoins. This suite is bordered by
a partially-shaded verandah, and from it a circular staircase
climbs to a cool rooftop aerie.
Luxurious Sol y Sombra is distinguished by sumptuous
Thai teak furnishings adorned with rich fabric, handcrafted mahogany
windows and doors with brass fittings, handsome native stonework,
cool gold-hued coralstone flooring (so kind to bare feet, inside
and out), gaily-painted umbrellas poolside and a charming collection
of elephants gracing garden nooks and crannies.
A cook is available by request; no staff live on
the estate, so your complete privacy at secluded Sol y Sombra
is assured. This A-list beach property promises a holiday of a
lifetime to those seeking the very best for their private Caribbean
holiday...five stars, and with our own personal recommendation!
