Sunset Watch - Upper Deck
Villa | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
8th Night Free Apr. 16 - Nov. 22, 2013
Sunset Watch is perched over Nail Bay Beach with the expanse of ocean and green islands beyond. A Chinese terracotta soldier welcomes you into this charming one-bedroom villa located on the upper floor of a two-level vacation home. A large, L-shaped covered verandah is plushly furnished with a sink-into sofa and armchairs, a dining table for six, and a lazy hammock - this is the romantic spot to laze away idle hours reading, napping or watching yachts pass by day, savoring a tropical sunset, or stargazing by night.
This compact but incredibly well-equipped pied-a-tier for two offers a great deal: Sunset Watch Upper Deck has a true gourmet kitchen complete with many appliances from breadmaker to Cuisinart, wine cooler, wet bar, and a generous array of chef's gadgets and cookware, spices and cookbooks. A herb garden is located behind the house where you can harvest fresh basil and lemon grass. A kitchen island separates all this from a small living area with a sofa facing the 180-degree ocean view. Screen and glass sliders on two sides open to the covered porch outside. Adjacent is the king bedroom with a generous bath ensuite which features double sinks, a separate WC with a bidet and an exotic alfresco shower.
Should you wish to bring friends or family along, the lower level of Sunset Watch, Lower Deck (a smaller one-bedroom villa), may be rented along with Sunset Watch Upper Deck for up to four guests. Just below Sunset Watch Lower Deck's patio is the property's expansive terrace and swimming pool, which is yours alone if you rent both levels, or which will be shared with another couple who may rent Sunset Watch Lower Deck during your stay. This beautiful entertainment area is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping for perfect privacy. At the pool are four chaise lounges for sunning and an umbrella for shade; a few steps up from the flagstone pool deck is a spacious terrace with more chaise lounges overlooking the superb sea views, a shady canvas-roofed pavilion for dining on the terrace, a bar with chairs, a curve of bench seating and a second gas grill all combine to celebrate outdoor island living. But if you wish to stroll on the sands of Nail Bay Beach below, beachcomb or snorkel, a stone staircase leads down to the beach from the gardens. Sunset Watch is a very private sanctuary, so charming with its Caribbean blue gingerbread trim and tropical flowers - you'll find it surprisingly well equipped for a comfortable villa vacation.
All guests renting Sunset Watch Upper Deck may use the Nail Bay beaches, the tennis court (open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily), and the community swimming pool at no additional charge, and may also patronize the bar and restaurant in Nail Bay.
Natural beauty is in abundance on the third largest of the British Virgin Islands. Explore the indigenous plant-lined trails, nature sanctuaries and natural wonders of the protected national parks. By mid-morning in Virgin Gorda, many have settled down on one of the many deserted beaches that fringe the island. The pace of life is slow on Virgin Gorda, but if you don't want to spend the day on a beach, there are plenty of other activities. You could explore The Baths- huge boulders provide a myriad of rock pools, secret beaches, and trails. Or spend the morning at a hillside restaurant cooled by gentle breezes while you watch the ferries cross the North Sound far below. Dramatic slopes plunge from Gorda Peak to the turquoise waters below.
