Cane Garden Bay, Tortola, north west - 3 bedroom villa
Tucked along the stony shoreline of Cane Garden Bay just 50 feet above soothing surf sounds, Seven Peaks offers total privacy and superb ocean views in a convenient waterfront location for your BVI holiday. A driveway lined with graceful royal palms welcomes you into the seclusion of Seven Peaks; enter the villa's main pavilion through the gourmet kitchen (so very well equipped for cooks with its gas Miele range and stocked with colorful tableware for festive, tropical feasts).
Adjacent to the large kitchen is the covered alfresco dining verandah with a large round mahogany dining table as its centerpiece; this area opens into the bi-level living area next to it, set with cushioned banana-leaf sofa and easy chair and a Sony 37-inch TV with satellite service. A breezy covered patio is right off the living area, overlooking yachts riding at anchor and the expanse of dazzling white-sand beach of Cane Garden Bay beyond. Just outside the living area is the secluded pool and sun decks on two levels. And just beyond the pool decks, strung along the coastline, is the very private and air-conditioned king master suite with a walk-in shower, desk area and its own private covered balcony.
A staircase leads from the pool deck down to the water's edge, a stony beach where you can beachcomb and snorkel right off the property. Seven Peaks' separate guest pavilion is located back at the villa's entrance with a curved staircase leading upstairs to two adjacent air-conditioned bedrooms. These second and third bedrooms share a tiled bath and an outdoor patio area. All bedrooms and the living area and kitchen are fully screened. Seven Peaks is warmed by handcrafted local teak and custom mahogany cabinetry, saltillo tile floors, and bright blue gingerbread architectural accents which add a lively Caribbean flair to this popular home. Let the surf sounds and the expansive sea views lull you into our slow island-time pace...four stars!

Cane Garden Bay's nightspots are just down the coast from Seven Peaks; on some nights there may be live entertainment, and if you choose to stay home instead of joining the reggae jump-up, you may have to close your bedroom doors and turn on the air-conditioning to shut out late-night music drifting across the Bay. Previous guests at Seven Peaks have said the occasional entertainment did not disturb their stay, however.
