Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in British Virgin Islands - Villa Dulcinea

House, 4 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 2-9)

Nestled into the hillside of exclusive Belmont Estates, in the beautiful northwest end of Tortola, high above two of the most stunning beaches on the island, sits Villa Dulcinea. This newly constructed home offers expansive water views from each of its tastefully appointed rooms.

Looking east one sees the curving, majestic coastline. In front of the house lie several miles of pristine Caribbean water and the island of Jost Van Dyke. Towards the west one can see the Smugglers’ Bay cove and several other islands in the near distance.

Three separate buildings comprise Villa Dulcinea, and look out over a broad unobstructed expanse of sea and islands. The main building houses the living room, dining area, two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and kitchen. A pool deck extends beyond this to the master bedroom building, containing two additional bedrooms. Under the carport is the East Wing, consisting of two extra rooms with 10’ ceilings that serve as media room and library.

Their northward windows and French doors offer expansive views of the sea and Jost Van Dyke, and the soft blue and gray toned furniture, including an ultrasuede pullout Queen couch with thick mattress, two soft swivel armchairs and two plush daybeds, is accented by colorful original and native art. All the structures are brilliant white, contrasted by periwinkle shutters.

A shellstone staircase leads to the entrance courtyard. An eight foot meticulously crafted stone wall extends along the entire hillside border of the property. An enclosed stone and glass tile outdoor shower is tucked privately into the corner of the courtyard.

All of the mahogany windows and doors in the house have been handcrafted by the island’s master woodworker and their distinctive rich handcrafted hardware has been imported from England. Original art work, including several pleasing abstract landscapes and seascapes, graces the walls. All rooms contain sensitive rheostat controlled lighting and elegant fixtures including chandeliers, wall sconces and lamps.

The Great room features a soothing palette of blue and green for its ultrasuede furniture and French fabric pillows. Natural stone accents punctuate the marble floor tiles. The high peaked hardwood ceiling provides airy spaciousness. French doors, stained to enhance their natural mahogany beauty, extend across the front of the room. Beyond the doors is an inviting 25’ long balcony overlooking the brilliant Caribbean.

All four bedrooms are large – approximately 14X16 feet each – and have unique personalities determined by the choice of art and linens. Each bedroom is air conditioned and features custom built wood closets and shelving. Each of the four ensuite bathrooms boasts its own combination of stone and colorful glass tiles highlighting the different vanities and sinks.

Three of the bedrooms – the one on the main floor of the main building, and the two in the master bedroom building – are expanded visually tall peaked hardwood ceilings. The second bedroom is reached by walking down a marble tiled staircase. Dramatic views of the sea accent the north view from this room, and French doors allow easy access to a walkway that extends across the entire front of the house.

The gourmet kitchen is entered from the west end of the Great room. This 20 foot long kitchen is flanked by custom built cabinets, pull out drawers and shelving, made of pale yellow stained maple hardwood, extending 9 ½ feet high and has limestone countertops and oversized stainless steel sink.

Luxury appliances include a Viking gas stove and oven, large door Accent refrigerator and freezer, dishwasher, large built-in microwave and convection oven, and an array of blenders and mixers, chosen to satisfy the needs of even serious cooks.

French doors open from the west end of the kitchen out to the covered porch area. This is where you will likely spend a large part of your vacation – eating meals at the table or at a stone bordered and covered bar area overlooking the pool, or reading quietly in one of the comfortable chairs. A deluxe gas grill is built into the arched stone wall just outside the kitchen door.

The shellstone pool deck extends beyond the covered porch. The hillside of the 28’ X 14’ pool is bordered by the 8’ stone wall that extends along the entire southern side of the house; above the wall there is a wide array of natural indigenous plantings. The pool is a glass tile embedded jewel. A stone staircase can take you from the pool deck to the natural walkway that extends along the entire lower portion of the home.

The heavy, arched front door of the master bedroom building opens to an accessory kitchen area, including nine foot high custom built cabinets, similar to those in the main kitchen, under counter refrigerator, wine cooler and coffee maker. The soft blue and green hues of the first bedroom you enter exude a Zen-like calm. The east windows offer views of the pool and main building. A soft cushioned day bed is adjacent to the queen bed.

At the end of the accessory kitchen area just before the master bedroom suite a conveniently located washer and dryer are hidden behind latticed wooden doors. This bedroom, like the other one in the master building, is expanded vertically by the tall peaked ceilings, painted a crisp white. French doors open westward from the master bedroom to a stone patio with comfortable outdoor lounging furniture, surrounded by lush tropical vegetation, and northward to a balcony overlooking the sea and views of Jost Van Dyke.

The master bedroom features a large custom built walk in closet. The large master bathroom is ringed with beautiful natural stone on the walls, framing the double sinks and claw tub. The west end of the bathroom opens into a 5’ X 6’ outside stone shower with cut out window overlooking a dramatic sea view.

Posh Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of family and friends found themselves together in paradise...no one could think of what we were missing, how we could make it better or why we would change a thing.

An extraordinary villa property, executed with all the trappings; from beautiful views at any angle, social space galore, private nooks to get lost in, a centerpiece pool, a kitchen and BBQ for foodies, to a short drive to both West End action and the NW beaches (serene cove snorkeling to a sweet little reef break in Apple Bay).

Owner recommendations always delivered; from day sails to restaurants to must see and dos. One of our top five favorite vacays ever...posh perfection for anyone seeking the best of the BVIs...we'll be back soon

another wonderful vacation at Villa Dulcinea

  • 5 of 5

Ten of us have been traveling together for over 10 years and we constantly go back to Villa Dulcinea. We look forward year to year making our reservation and enjoying the relaxing atmosphere. the villa is appointed with beautiful furniture, linens, and the kitchen is fully equipped. We have several cooks in the group and they love cooking there. easy access to Smuggler's Cove or Long Bay. Good restaurants in Long Bay and at Soper's Hole. ENJOY!

Couldn't ask for more

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us just spent several magical days at this island paradise; its tranquil views and proximity to pristine beaches made it perfect. When we decided to eat in, the well-appointed kitchen's and built-in grill's proximity to poolside and covered decks made things easy. I can't think of a better way to begin the day than sipping coffee as the sun rises in the east; or to unwind on the deck at sundown after a day at the beach, watching the stars appear in the northern sky over Jost Van Dyke.

Make sure to get the ferry to West End Tortola and reserve access to a 4 WD vehicle as Villa Dulcinea is midway up the northern side of the west end of the island, which makes it isolated enough for complete privacy while still accessible to beaches and nearby Soper's Hole's boutiques and grocery store.

We'll definitely be back.

This is THE absolutely perfect place to stay! We were four couples fortunate enough to take time out from our busy lives to enjoy the sun,

The island, and each other. The house itself is so inviting, eAch room with a private balcony / terrace to enjoy the lights and the stars At night. The owner/ artist has added so many beautiful And interesting touches that complement the drop- dead 180 degree views. Large dining tables in and outside, pool and terrace were wonderful areas to hang together. No need to look further----this is the best there is!

Just returned from a week at Dulcinea. We have been visiting this beautiful villa annually for the last 6 years. It is a very special place to spend vacation time with friends and family, as it is offers the warmth and comfort of a home, often not found in rental properties. The views are spectacular, the decor exceptional and the west end of tortola offers a beautiful secluded spot to enjoy the pleasures of beach, sun and surf. It is the hideaway everyone craves in the Caribbean.

New Years Week at Villa Dulcinea

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from the most beautiful week staying at Villa Dulcinea. The 10 of us, my brothers and my family, four parents and six kids ages 19 to 26 had the nicest week lingering over breakfast on the patio taking in the view, going to the beautiful beaches on the island, having big family dinners on the patio, sailing and celebrating the New Year. The house was perfect for a family of this size. The bedrooms are large and beautifully decorated. The whole house is made for relaxing and enjoying your time together and your time on the island Everything you could ever need is there and if its not you don't need it!
