Description

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Tortola - Sunset House, Tortola

House, 3-5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths (Sleeps 13)

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 welcome you to sit back and relax while dinner 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.

**All Rates are Based on 3 Bedrooms. Please contact us directly for 4 Bedroom and 5 Bedroom Rates.**

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

Ok...May I just say for the hundredth time, that "It just doesn't get any better than this!" The moment we arrived we have been treated like royalty, Do you hear me? Royalty. The staff were the best, all sweeties...all of them. We have loved our time here and, like everyone else who has had the good fortune to discover this home, truly a home we hate to leave and can't wait to return. Carmen and her staff have been nothing but the perfect hosts and their meals here...oh my! too wonderful. How great is it to have a fabulous dinner at home and be able to relax and just...be! Thank you to our fabulous hosts, the wonderful paradise they have named Tortola, and we will set a goal to return soon.

Sunset House is the place to be!

  • 5 of 5

Between amazing view and great location it could not get much better. Have dinner at Brandywine, or D' Coal Pot and travel for the day to Jost Van Dyke or take a day sail to Virgin Gorda. For a private and euphoric beach experience, head to Lambert beach/Turtle Bay resort and have the beach all to yourselves and see the amazing waves! Love captain Karam & Crew.

Perfect 50th Birthday Celebrations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sunset House with good friends to celebrate multiple 50th birthdays. What a way to celebrate! The house and location are perfect. Beautiful view, wonderful rooms, lovely staff and the food was amazing. Carmen was so helpful and helped make our vacation so easy and relaxed. All of her recommendations were spot on and we had a wonderful time. Did I mention the view??? So incredible. We also enjoyed this side of the island, plenty to explore and we walked to the beach. We can't wait to come back.

This was our second stay at the Sunset House, and another great time was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone was so friendly - Carmen, Jennifer, Loris, and Violet are top notch. Our dinner on the first night was delicious and it was so nice to have it ready when we arrived. This is a special place and we always think of the view when it's cold and snowy up north.

I can't leave!!

  • 5 of 5

Sunset House is such a special space. Carmen and her staff are amazing people and couldn't have provided a more lovely, welcoming week for us to spend on Tortola. The best meals we had here. I wouldn't waste your time going out for dinner anywhere else (or your money) best food we had was here by far!!! The views, the beach can't be beat and we live in California! We will definitely be back. Bringing friends and recommending to many.
