Tortola Estate Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 7) Amazing Views 10 feet from the water

Set on one of the most photographed picturesque beaches in the Caribbean is the visual spectacle of Sterling House. The unique location offers the only beachfront villa within 15 steps of Long Bay Beach on Tortola's North shore. This five-star 3 bedroom gem is the first floor (beachfront) of a fabulous Mediterranean castle that even has a tower. An exceptionally romantic haven perfect for honeymooners or two couples. It has its own private entrance to the villa, with direct beach access. The owners occupy the second and third floor of the house (your privacy totally ensured). Our attentive and discreet full time housekeeper is available daily or for your convenience and enjoyment. Revel to 180 degree outrageous panorama of sand and sea views, that encompass looking directly down Long Bay Beach, and many outer islands. Sailing yachts glide in the distance against the unmatched beauty of the mile long beach and sugar loaf. A eurpuoric one of a kind place.

Tortola's newest luxury gem consists of two king en suite bedrooms with four-poster beds dressed in luxury linens, marble bathrooms, large showers, and the finest appointments. Plus, a third bedroom (studio) with Queen bed, it's own

entrance, marble bathroom, kitchen and balcony. The living area is set between the two bedroom suites offering complete privacy for couples. It is luxuriously furnished with overstuffed furniture with tropical upholstery, indoor and outdoor teak dining areas, and a gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops. All on one floor and all rooms and areas open onto the veranda with cushy furnishing to relax and be overwhelmed with this exceptional location and views.

Enjoy the opulence of the state of the art pool. Heated with therapeutic jets and a European massage waterfall. Beautifully designed with mosaic glass tiles, surrounded by columns arches and tropical plants.

The outside areas boast alfresco dining on the terrace. Or you can have a most intense experience. Walk down a few stairs to cliff side dining eight feet above the sea. Follow stepping stones through a grassy yard that fronts the sea leading you to the private beach access at the beginning of Long Bay. Mesmerizing sunsets, panoramic views, and sounds of the soothing surf, await you at Sterling House.

Recent guests suggested 'Sterling House should be showcased on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous!!

Fantastic Tortola Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Sterling House and had a wonderful time. There were 8 of us , but the villa could easily accommodate 10 or 12. The design and layout are incredible and it has EVERYTHING that you could possibly want. Every suite has it's own unique qualities and each has magnificent views of the ocean. From the huge kitchen to the grill and pool, everything is top of the line. The owner, Donna Sterling, is wonderful to work with and was very helpful in arranging everything that we needed. There are 2 restaurants within close walking distance, Also, we would recommend The Sugar Mill for will need transportation as it is about a mile away. We are looking forward to returning next year!

Magnificent BVI Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 3 daughters spent a fabulous 7 days in Sterling House. Words cannot describe our first sight of the house and our accomodations! Pictures do not do the view justice!!! We were in awe with the balcony views with the Caribbean breezes. Donna, the owner, greeted us and gave us thorough instructions for the villa and island activities. She could always be reached for any questions or advice we needed. The villa is well equipped with everything you need including a huge selection of beach chairs. The beach is just steps away from the backdoor(don't worry if you forget something-takes about a minute to go back for it). We enjoyed the 2 restaurants that are minutes from the villa(especially Tropical Fusion). Eric, the taxi driver brought us anywhere we wanted to go and also reccommended restaurants and bars etc... We took a water taxi to Jost Van Dyke for entire day, we knew we would be late coming back so Eric arranged a boat for us. He also set us up with a day trip with Greg on a 33 foot motor boat. We snorkeled at Virgin Gorda and ate at Willie T's. We then snorkeled at the caves on Norman Island. I highly reccommend Sterling House and my family feels very lucky to have enjoyed Donna's home and gracious hospitality!

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Sterling House with friends. Wonderful property, wonderful location. The property is the envy of everyone who visits Long Bay beach. The housekeeper (Jeannie) is amazing. I personally believe it is the best property on the island!

Fabulous beachfront luxury

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from 5 glorious nights in the lovely Sterling House. It is literally right on the water, and to sit on the beautiful spacious balcony in the morning enjoying our breakfast, or drinking wine and watching the sunset in the evening, was just heaven. We slept in our wonderfully comfortable king-sized bed listening to the waves crashing, and it was absolutely awesome. The sweet owner, Donna, would check on us every day to see if there was anything we needed, but also gave us all of the privacy we desired. We decided that we didn't want to rent a car (so that we didn't need someone to volunteer to be a designated driver at dinner!), so Donna set us up with a great taxi driver, Eric.

The Sterling House was every bit as beautiful (or more) than the photos, and we look forward to returning again soon!

The Sterling House is a beautiful villa steps from the beach. The patio overlooks the ocean and the waves crash right below from where you are drinking your wine and breathing in the fresh air. This was a much needed break from our hectic life. Enjoy sunsets, sunrises and peace. We didn't look at a computer or read emails, just relaxed and reflected on life for awhile. The villa is in the best location ever. We rented a different villa two years ago that was very nice but we will always come back to The Sterling House from now on. The convenience of restaurants, beach bars, and water sports makes your stay so much easier. The villa has beautiful views from every single room. The bath opens up to a heated spool (spa tub, mini pool...that is what we call it in Texas "spool") which prevents you from dripping water all the way through the villa. The kitchen has everything you could need, and it has a gas stove for those who like to cook. The best part about this villa is the owner of the villa. Donna is a beautiful person who will take care of all of your needs. We asked Donna down for wine and cheese, she graciously excepted. We couldn't stop laughing and we enjoyed many of her hilarious stories. She is a jewel. We can't recommend The Sterling House enough. If tranquility is what you are after, in a setting out of a movie, this is the place for you. Did we mention wine too many times? Oh well!

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful vacation at The Sterling House. It is a beautiful private home right on the Beach. The views are truly breathtaking.The owner graciously rents out the 1st floor villa which is a beautiful 2 bedroom suite. Both bedrooms have private luxurious bathrooms and are separated by a kitchen( fridge,gas stove,microwave,dishwasher,toaster,blender, coffeemaker) and living room to ensure privacy. The whole villa is ocean front and the doors in both bedrooms and the living room are pocket doors (including pocket screens) so they disappear into the walls and you can walk freely onto the elegant covered balcony to enjoy magnificent ocean views overlooking the most beautiful, quiet, picturesque beach on the Island. If needed the bedrooms have AC and if you open the bedroom doors the kitchen/living room area will cool down also.

We traveled with our 2 daughters ages 23 & 26 and wanted 3 bedrooms so the owner, offered to rent us her art studio as a third bedroom. It was perfect. It has it's own private entrance, balcony, bathroom, TV, kitchen... need I say more.

Inside all the basics to start your vacation are provided for. Paper towels,toilet paper, trash bags, coffee filters,dishwash etc. The owner suggested we order food online and had everything put away upon our arrival. A huge time saver. You will need a car if planning to explore.

You will never want to leave the villa, the views are that spectacular, the beach is steps away, there is a small dipping pool on the balcony with therapeutic jets and a European massage waterfall, they have a gas grill, washer and dryer, 40 inch tv,dvd player,stereo, WiFi ,beach chairs and towels,cooler,everything you could think of is waiting for you to enjoy.
