Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in British Virgin Islands

House, 5 Bedrooms, Baths (Sleeps 12)

Walk through our doors to the stellar setting and unsurpassable view of Sunset House. This classic Caribbean house, lovingly restored by its new owners, spreads over Long Bay Hill just a short walk from Long Bay beach at the west end of Tortola.

Nestled in the lush hills above long Bay, Sunset House offers you a most unique and intimate vacation experience. Over the years the house has been host to English Royalty, famous sports figures, and well known theatre personalities; as well as weddings, family reunions and groups of friends.

Artfully designed, Sunset House will captivate you from the very first moment you step through the elegant gazebo styled entrance and into the open courtyard from which a spectacular vista of historic Long Bay and its mile-long beach beckon.

The house features five large airy bedrooms, each with bath in suite and a private balcony with spectacular views of Long Bay to Jost Van Dyke and the outer islands. Relax by the pool lulled by its waterfall or enjoy a water massage in the tranquility of the hot tub. Watch the sunset while having cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the wraparound veranda, and savor dinner prepared for you by our staff in our new state of the art kitchen. You will enjoy the personalized services provided by the staff which is headed by Carmen who has been with the house for over twenty years.

Since we all know that the travel experience these days is exhausting we would like to welcome you with a complimentary dinner the first night. You choose from the dinner menu, and sit back and relax while it is prepared and served to you by our staff. No shopping, cooking or cleaning required, and no stress allowed.

We deeply appreciate you coming to Tortola and we look forward to making your stay here extraordinary and memorable so that you will want to return to our paradise again and again.

Why Carmen chose British Virgin Islands

The magic of renting the Sunset House is personal service, total privacy, gourmet meals, absolute relaxation and no fixed itinerary. The view and location of the house speak for itself, and is ideal for family trips, groups of friends, destination weddings, anniversary celebrations, business conferences, or just a relaxing vacation. Your experience will be second to none, and we know that once you walk through our doors you will fall in love with our house as many others have.

Your rental includes complimentary continental breakfast, and the services provided by our cook, serving staff and housekeeper. Prior to arrival we will contact you to discuss menu choices, and any house provisioning you would like. The cost of the food for the dinners and the house provisioning will be charged to your account.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an extravagant stay! Carmen and the staff made us delicious meals and made our stay completely and amazingly enjoyable. It was so relaxing to sit by the pool and hot tub in the sun while at home it was snowing! The views made our chins drop as we saw the beautiful clear blue ocean down below. It's so sad to leave this beautiful paradise. Thanks again for everything!

The island is absolutely gorgeous and the Sunset House was perfect for our large family. You really can't beat this view. We love Carmen and the entire staff. You will not find any better cooking here on the island than the Sunset House. We took a day trip to Jost Van Dyke and sat and what became my family's favorite beach, I strongly advise going. If you are looking for a day trip out on a boat we used Double D'S boat charter to go to the Baths on Virgin Gorda and best snorkeling at Peter Island. Blue Water divers rocked for scuba diving. We love it and can't wait to come back!

Wonderful Week!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you Carmen & all the staff for the wonderful week! You all made our wedding an unforgettable experience and escape from the typical affair. We both appreciate all of your hard work, attention to detail and hospitality. This is truly a home away from home. We can't wait to come back and visit, and celebrate our many marriage anniversaries to come. Thank you for treating us and our guests as family during this special time!

Where to begin??

  • 5 out of 5
In a word, it was "Everything"...every thing I had hoped for to celebrate my 40th birthday with 8 other wonderful women. We had a fantastic time! I cannot say enough about how amazing Carmen, Loris, Cynthia, Jennifer and Violet were to us. They made us feel special and cared for while we stayed there, they took the time to get to know us and accomidated anything we asked for. We truly felt like we were with friends when we spent time with these lovely ladies. The rooms were clean and beautifully decorated. The view from the master bathroom while showering was breath-taking. The sunsets were in a word - ridiculous, we all spent many hours sitting and watching them, taking pictures and of course talking about them. The food was DELICIOUS! we enjoyed everything from the soups, the salads, to the main course and of course something sweet after dinner! Be sure to have the coconut shrimp, potato leek soup, salmon with the creamy dill sauce and key lime pie! I would HIGHLY recommend doing the meal plan, it's the best food and service you will receive on the island, I promise. Mario from West End Taxi took care of us all week, carting us here and there, making sure we were taken care of and safe, we were sad to say good-bye to him. As I sit here typing this, thinking last week at this time a few of us had taken a day trip over to St. John to go to the amazing Trunk Bay, I am sad, it's true, but I remind myself of all the blessings I had that entire week with old friends and new friends made at Sunset House, it is truly a trip to remember, and all due to the time we spent at this wonderful house. Many thanks to the entire Sunset House staff...a birthday to remember for always!

A great place for families!

  • 5 out of 5
We were there with 4 parents, 3 eleven-year-olds, a nine-year-old and a six-year-old and never heard, "I'm bored," for the seven days we were there. Carmen and the staff treated our children like their own and accommodated any picky eating habits with ease. One evening while eating one of Carmen's outstanding meals, we asked my daughter her favorite part of the trip, she responded, "The food." With the incredible view and amenities, we spent half of our days just relaxing at the house and didn't feel as though we were missing out. Easy access to beautiful beaches such as Cane Garden Bay, Smugglers Cove and Long Bay was the icing on the cake. We WILL be going back!
