Tortola, British Virgin Islands
Blackbeard's Hideaway, Tortola, British Virgin Island Vacation Rental
Located on prestigious Steele Point Estate's 8-acre peninsula on Tortola's West End, Blackbeard's Hideaway is flanked by its sister villas Steele Point and Gestalt.
Completed in 2009, so elegant in its simplicity and with a spacious floor plan, this two-bedroom, two-bath villa is adorned with local bluebit stonework and capped with terra cotta roof tiles. Handsome epi wood French doors and arched windows frame the sea views - Blackbeard's Hideaway looks out to Little Thatch Island and Sopers Hole, with yachts riding at anchor on Tortola's West End. Sailboats under full sail and ferries plying their way between West End, Road Town and St. Thomas pass back and forth below this villa.
As you enter into Blackbeard's Hideaway, the high-ceiling Great Room welcomes you in and showcases the panorama of ocean and isles just outside. The Great Room encompasses the well-outfitted kitchen (graced with stainless steeel appliances, mahogany cabinetry and an artistically-tiled backsplash), the dining area and a seating area with cable TV and DVD player.
Two equal-sized, air-conditioned king bedroom suites flank either side of the Great Room; each suite has its own private alfresco shower overlooking the vistas. Screened french doors open from each bedroom/bath suite out to a long covered verandah, featuring latticed sections fronting each suite; this verandah borders the entire front of Blackbeard's Hideaway, offering open-air dining and even a desk so you can email and work from your laptop while enjoying the view and cool tradewinds. A few stairs take you from this relaxing area down to the swimming pool and sun deck.
Furnishings are in elegant tropical style, featuring a pleasing meld of bamboo, rattan and exotic woods accented with colorful cushions. Although this home is situated near Gestalt, it is threaded by stone walkways and lushly landscaped for your complete privacy. A walking path winds down the hill from this villa to the ocean's edge and to a dock (shared with Gestalt's guests), where you can slide into the ocean for wonderful snorkeling on live reefs.
Beautifully executed and very well furnished with almost everything you might need on vacation, Blackbeard's Hideaway is perfect for two couples or a small family looking for the serenity of a seaside holiday.
