Island perfection for couples or families! Summer Heights' hillside affords long distance ocean panoramas dotted with green islands and constant cooling tradewinds.
A broad staircase of Mexican coral tile leads to the enclosed sunny courtyard accented with river stones. Here the blue tiled pool overlooks sweeping sea vistas. A poolside roofed dining loggia provides a beautiful setting for casual dining and viewing sunsets; just adjacent and looking out to the pool is Summer Heights' gourmet kitchen and bar. Enjoy the starter bar as you toast the breathtaking views of Sir Francis Drake Channel. A stylish curved glass brick wall separates the kitchen from the very spacious great room which offers ever-changing views of passing yachts.
Decorated in ocean pastels or shell pinks, three nearly equal king bedroom/bath suites and a fourth king bedroom suite are situated along the deck from the great room on two levels. The upper two bedrooms have private balconies, and the other two open onto a semi-shaded deck with a double hammock.
At the opposite end of the pool is the Turtle Dove Suite which opens out on to the pool deck through sliding glass doors. It has a king bed, A/C, cable TV, a bath with his-and-her sinks, a bidet and large shower. An air-conditioned sixth bedroom with two twin beds is accessed via an interior staircase from Turtle Dove Suite below. This children's suite shares the bath with Turtle Dove Suite.
A friendly, light and breezy vacation home for couples or families, this villa is conveniently located to town, shops, restaurants, and West End beaches.
Note: There are some steep areas in this neighborhood, and hairpin turns.

Originally from England, the owners of Summer Heights personally built and now maintain Summer Heights in immaculate condition. Their own accommodations are tucked away on the lower eastern side of the property, completely separate from the villa's amenities. For more than 20 years, they have hosted guests on their beautiful 72-foot sailing yacht in the Caribbean. Use them as information resources, have them professionally cater your dinner party, or help arrange your day's activities...or simply indicate your preferences for total privacy.
We loved Summer Heights. It is a beautiful place. Very good place to relax and enjoy the urrounding views. The kitchen was fantastic. FULLY equipped which was great since I love to cook and we had several meals in. The owners were helpful and there if we needed them. I would definitely go back again and would recommend it to my friends.
Summer Heights was a great place to stay. We had 4 couples in a 5-bedroom villa, and we had plenty of space. All of the rooms open up to an outdoor common area with pool and dining table. Great for the tropical atmosphere.
Getting to the villa requires driving a 4x4 up rather steep, narrow switchback roads, but it was not an issue.
The location is great, basically in the middle, travel-wise, with Road Town, Soper's Hole, Cane Garden Bay, and all of the western island attractions easily accessible. Eastern locations require more of a drive but the southern road is flat and quick.
The villa is simple great distribution, nothing fancy. The views, the kitchen and dinner table are what make this place expectacular, being so simple gave us an oportunity to experience life in the BVI's. Plus having the owners near by is of great help since Roz was extremly helpful and a great host. They are what really made or saty in the villa a great one.
