Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Hurricane Hole
Bedrooms 3, Bathrooms 4, Sleeps 6
Alfresco is situated on a private hillside above breathtaking Long Bay Beach; this three-bedroom vacation home is a real beauty! Its two pavilions are separated by the swimming pool and sun deck.
Entering through the welcoming portico brings you into Alfresco's mezzanine. which overlooks the villa's high-ceilinged Great Room below. The mezzanine connects to the Great Room via a graceful curving staircase and also leads into the completely-equipped kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances; the kitchen looks out to the sea view. Adjacent to the kitchen is a covered pavilion with a glass-and-stone table for outside dining, complete with a gas grill. From this cool, open-air pavilion, a walkway leads to a classic West Indian welcoming-arms staircase which descends between planters, filled with colorful palms, bird of paradise, ixora, ginger and heliconia flowers, to the tiled sun terrace and solar-heated pool.
The pool terrace, set with chaise lounges for tanning, overlooks sweeping views of the white sands of Long Bay Beach and far beyond to Jost Van Dyke and small picturesque cays, just perfect for lazy daydreaming, sunset cocktails as you watch the sun color the sky at the end of each day, and for stargazing at night. There's also an outdoor shower on this terrace for convenient after-beach rinse-offs.
A bank of glass sliding doors opens from the pool deck into Alfresco's living room, creating a generous inside-outside space for relaxing together, swimming and sunning, playing cards or games and watching TV and DVD movies on Alfresco's satellite TV. More slider doors open out to a verandah fronting the ocean side of the living room so you can enjoy the lovely blue views from this vantage point as well.
On the other side of the pool terrace is Alfresco's two-bedroom pavilion. The welcoming-arms staircase curves up to the entrance of the king master bedroom, a spacious suite with air-conditioning, reclaimed teak furniture from Bali, window draperies and a bathroom with a travertine-tiled shower. The master suite has its own private ocean-facing verandah just outside.
Directly below the master suite is Alfresco's second air-conditioned bedroom/bath, furnished with two teak twin beds which can be made up into a king bed with your advance request. This two-twin bedroom is situated directly on the pool terrace so you can get out of bed and slide right into the cool pool; this bedroom also features slider doors which connect to the garden just outside on Alfrescoﾒs ocean side. To the rear of this level is a powder room, very convenient to the pool area.
Alfresco's third air-conditioned bedroom/bath, situated directly below the living room in the other pavilion across the terrace, is accessed by a staircase off the pool deck. It has a queen bed, and also features slider doors which open out to the garden fronting the villa. This suite is very private.
Just a short drive down the hill is Long Bay Resort and its bars and restaurants, and the inviting long stretch of white sand of Long Bay Beach. Alfresco is very well located on Tortola's popular West End with a variety of beaches and dining options to be found as you drive along the picturesque coast. Bombaﾒs Shack, famous for its crazy full-moon parties on the beach, is just up the road from Long Bay.
