Bedrooms 4
Property type villa


About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Amateras is a luxury 5,000 square-foot estate-villa in the British Virgin Islands. Perched on 1.5 acres of hilltop and set among the spectacular boulders found only in Virgin Gorda, it offers dramatic 360-degree views of both sunrise and sunset over the Atlantic Ocean and Sir Francis Drake Channel. Amateras provides its guests one of the most spectacular vacation settings on the island of Virgin Gorda. With three independently appointed pavilions, Amateras’ accommodations are ideal for two families and their children, or four couples. The villa includes two two-bedroom cabanas with air-conditioning, the main house, a covered gazebo, a pool and a multitude of decks each with magnificent views.

The main house at Amateras was designed to fully capture the dramatic views in every direction and create the ultimate in indoor/outdoor living. The living space encompasses a number of seating areas with French doors leading to a multitude of decks with a professional kitchen at the center.

The state of the art chefs kitchen offers stunning views of the Atlantic through the living room, and of Drake’s Channel through the formal dining space and is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and a full complement of dinner and glassware. There is dining in the main house as well as on the substantial covered terrace. The main house also includes a loft with its own terrace for yet another tranquil spot for relaxing.

With advance notice, our House Manager can provision the villa for you.

Amateras offers two separate two bedroom cabanas, each with air-conditioning, a kitchenette, French doors leading to private decks and two full, separate bathrooms. One bedroom includes a king-sized bed, and the second accommodates either two twin beds or an additional king bed. Each cabana has a private entrance offering solitude from the main house, pool, and the other cabana making Amateras an ideal location for four couples or two families.

Incredible Place

  • 5 of 5

Of all the VRBO properties where I have stayed, this one really stands out. Incredible views, very secluded yet access to everything nearby. Nestled among boulders and cacti at the highest point of the area, it reminds me of Northern Scottsdale in a Carribean setting. Rather than staying in a place on one beach, one of the main decisions you make in the morning is which beach best suits the day...all offer different experiences and all within a few minutes drive. The layout of the house, with three buildings, gives the ultimate in both privacy when you want it and a great main house to gather for cocktails, meals and swimming. No question we will return.

Spectacular home with 360 views!

  • 5 of 5

Amateras is a beautiful home set high amidst dramatic VG boulders. There are beautiful views from every room in the house and the breeze from the ocean keeps large kitchen and living room cool. The outdoor living/eating area is a great place to gather with family and friends. Clean, spacious and lovely! Highly recommend!

Exceptional views

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed your home. The views and location were terrific. The bedroom "pods" are a great design, as we had a family with a three year old, two twenty-somethings, and my wife and I. Everyone had their own privacy at night. It was great.

Incredible Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Amateras. The home is spectacular -- just like the photos! The 360 degree views are incredible. The home is very well equipped and well kept. The owners were great communicators and were always very responsive to our questions. Their recommendations of things to do and places to eat were right on point. Renting a car is a must! We enjoyed exploring the various VIrgin Gorda beaches and resorts (Savannah Bay being our favorite beach). One of our suitcases didn't make it to Virgin Gorda and the property manager Anna Marie was very helpful in assisting us with that. It was a fabulous, relaxing week and we would certainly rent this home again!

Once in a lifetime.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six just returned from 7 nights at The Amateras and we all are suffering with the come home grumpies. This villa meet every expectation we imagined. The views are incredible and from every window in each pavilion, you can see forever. With this view does come some stairs! Thelma took good care of us with a mid-week towel change and a quick clean up. The pool was just the right tempature and the perfect stop after a long day at the beach! Didn't get to see Elvis, but plenty of lizards kept us entertained and would defiantly come inside. Each day we went to new beaches and all of them very close. Great location for the villa. Enjoy and hope I get to return.
