This comfortable home is named ‘Pelican Peak’ and it is has been our family dream home for many years.
A five-minute rural winding road with some radical switchbacks brings you up to the house, situated on the top of a mountain overlooking Little Apple Bay at the western part of the small island of Tortola.
The property consists of two houses; the main house and a guest house. Together they can accommodate six adults and including children a total of 8 people.
The house is equipped with every amenity you need to make your stay perfect. The land covers one acre and will guarantee you privacy and peace.
There is a beautiful pool (22ftX15ft) to cool you during the daytime or in the evening under the stars.
The property is fenced, and there is a gate that leads to a gravel driveway covered on one side in bougainvillea where you without difficulty can park three cars.
The garden around the villa is beautifully landscaped; you will find all sorts of lovely Caribbean flowers and fruit like bananas, limes, star fruit, sugar apples, and pineapples.
The house is only suitable for children from 6 years and older that can swim; in the guest house is a bunk bed for children and upstairs in the main house is a lovely bedroom. Around the house is plenty of grass, space and shade.
We have one very sweet house cat named Habibi, who live outside. She is our two full-time staff members who is there to keep mouse etc. far away from our lovely home.
The main villa has two bedrooms; a master bedroom with a king bed downstairs and a second big bedroom with two queen beds upstairs.
The master bedroom has an attached outside bathroom with impressive views of many surrounding islands and the azure Caribbean waters.
An authentic spiral staircase leads up to the second bedroom which has a dark wooden floor, high ceiling and is attractively decorated. The views from this bedroom are stunning, overlooking the Jost Van Dyke channel, which is dotted with small islands such as Green Cay, Sandy Spit, and Sandy Cay. Note: The bathroom for this bedroom is at the bottom of the stairs.
All bedrooms have air conditioning which is much appreciated in summer months. The living room and kitchen are fully open (but screened) to the veranda, usually cooled by a lovely trade wind.
The master bedroom and the living room/open kitchen have large wooden doors that open up the whole wall onto a verandah where you find a second living area with a dining table that seats up to eight people and a relaxing sitting area.
Because most of the living room/kitchen is open to the deck, the verandah, and the main house feels like one space.
The guest house is separated from the main house by a swimming pool and lawn. The guest house can sleep, four people. There is a king bed and bunk beds. The bunk beds are not in a separate room but in a divided area, so we would suggest these beds are only used for children. Also, the guest house has large wooden doors that open completely from floor to the ceiling, so while reading a book on the king bed, you enjoy the beautiful sunsets that you can expect to see here every day.
You can optimally enjoy your privacy at Pelican Peak; in principle, the villa is only cleaned after check-out. If you stay for seven nights or longer, a midweek cleaning service will be offered to you free of charge. The towels will be changed as part of this service, and the bedsheets will be changed weekly.
Guests need to provide their own meals. We can provide you with information for a private chef on request.
From anywhere within the main villa, the guest house, outside on the deck, swimming in the pool, relaxing on the daybed or sitting elsewhere in the garden you will be able to see far and wide across the Caribbean sea while you are listening to the waves breaking on Little Apple Bay’s beach.
NOTE: the 5 minute drive from the main road to Pelican Peak can be a little daunting with all it’s switchbacks and does require a 4WD vehicle…but it’s worth the journey! Pelican Peak overlooks the surf break at Apple Bay but the drive is 10 mins via Romney Park & Zion Hill
