Luck Hill, Tortola - 3 bedroom villa
A sophisticated and elegantly furnished 2-acre hideaway behind an electronic gate, blessed with the most amazing views of the ocean and 15 green islands beyond that we've ever seen! The three pavilions of Arundel begin with the palatial master suite pavilion, complete with a romantic four-poster bed, an adjoining tatami reading/meditation room, and a marble bath with an indoor/outdoor shower.
Arundel's living, dining and kitchen areas are in the main pavilion, fitted with a convenient wet bar, a superb stereo system with a generous selection of CDs for every taste, a baby grand piano and a sheltered alfresco dining area by the pool. The third pavilion consists of two air-conditioned queen bedroom/bath suites, each with a marble bath and its own private balcony overlooking the long-distance expanse of inspiring sea views. Below these bedrooms is a quiet air-conditioned home office with a Dell computer with DSL, + Wi-Fi covering most of the pavilion areas for your laptop. All three bedrooms are air-conditioned, and each is well equipped with cable TV, DVD and CD players, a VCR, an iPod dock, a hair dryer and Arundel bathrobes for your use. Living areas are comfortably furnished with cushioned elephant bamboo and enhanced by many mementos and treasures from around the world.
But the main allure of Arundel is the expansive garden terrace, set with the hot tub and pool and bordered by tropical gardens with orchids and herbs; serenity is provided by the the tranquil sounds of a nearby fountain and fish pond. Here on the sunny deck you'll marvel at the sea vistas and gorgeous tropical sunsets as your cares melt away. Unique and beautifully finished, you'll be absolutely pampered at secluded Arundel.
