Description of the Long Bay vacation villa rental
You will enter the property through an imposing mahogany door into a mezzanine level which adjoins the living room with stunning views out to sea. Sweep down the curvaceous staircase into the living room and relax into one of the sumptuous sofas. There is a vast selection of channels on the 38” satellite TV, a good selection of DVDs can be watched on the Blu-Ray DVD. The music system is right there too if you prefer some music to listen to, either using your own ipod/iphone or something from our collection. The wonderful main deck is right outside where you can enjoy the fabulous vista, take a dip in the pool or simply enjoy Alfresco living with lunch around the table.
The mezzanine leads you to the Kitchen with its well appointed high end units with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen sink is a great place to look out at the amazing sea view. Should you need any provisions for your arrival just let us know and this can easily be arranged. The Dining Room becons you from the kitchen with its majestic views of the islands. The glass and stone table is bespoke in this open air pavilion and gives a nice airy feeling to your dining experience. The dining area is also a great place at night which provides an elegant setting for dinner, whether you are cooking yourself or if you decide to bring a chef in.
From the Dining Room you have easy access down a curving opening arms staircase to the splendorous main deck, planters are filled with local palms, bird of paradise, heliconia, gingers and bougainvillea. Once at the pool, take a dip, enjoy the views and relax in the sun on the comfortable sun beds. An outdoor shower is on the deck. In the evening enjoy this area with a cocktail, watch the sun go down, marvel at the fabulous pool color sequences (programme your personal color favorites). You might want to rev it up a bit, put on some music and have some friends over you have met during your stay. Alfresco villa Tortola is the place to stay.
All rooms have large sliding doors which disappear into the walls to open up the house, this offers open plan living and complete flexibility to move around Alfresco with ease. Plenty of books are available, if you don’t finish one take it home, please leave one in its place so the next guest has some reading pleasure too. Board games are provided for an evening in.
The bedroom pavilion offers an upper level Master Suite. This has beautiful views of the islands and beyond from the balcony and spacious outdoor private deck. The bathroom is finished with a gorgeous stone travertine and natural pebbles, the oversized shower offers you an invigorating experience. You can marvel at the wonderful wood ceiling as you look up from your king size bed handcrafted in reclaimed teak from Bali. You will be sleeping under 400 thread count Egyptian cotton percale which will give you a luxurious night’s sleep. If you stay in October, there is a wonderful Jacaranda tree full of cotton like flowers which cascades over the outdoor private terrace leading out from the bathroom. The second bedroom can be found at deck level and offers comfy easy access. You can choose either twins or a king size bed for this room depending on your needs. Same Egyptian cotton for that perfect night’s sleep. Again this bathroom is finished in lovely stone travertine and natural pebbles with beautifully bespoke mill work in the bathroom. The private wrap around deck can be used as another area to relax and enjoy your stay.
The third bedroom is very private and leads down from the main deck via steps to an outdoor space overlooking trees and landscape. You can enjoy the sea views and ocean sounds at night if you wish to. This bedroom has a low 4 poster Queen Bed with local art work to give a contemporary feel to this space. Again luxury Egyptian cotton is featured throughout the property. Bathroom is finished with stone travertine and natural pebbles in your lovely spacious walk in shower. Enjoy the privacy of this bedroom.
This property is easily accessible to Long Bay Beach if you want to drive or walk, up to you. Smugglers Cove is around the corner (need to drive) unless you are fit! There are local restaurants within driving distance of the property, Long Bay Beach Resort is the nearest, Sebastian’s is just over the hill, you have The Sugar Mill restaurant just on from that and other local eateries. If you go to Sopers Hole you also have a nice friendly local restaurant where you can watch the sailors coming in after a day at sea, you can also look around the marina and see all the larger yacht’s moored up for the night. A nice place to relax. You can also get a great breakfast here with D-cup coffee shop.

This is a gem of a place that was accurately described and everything we were looking for. This place is bran new and immaculate. The owners were extremely helpful with all of our questions and expectations. Alfresco is very private and gave us the seclusion we were looking for. The views from the property are outstanding. It is very well located and did not take us to long to go to the beach or nearby restaurants. There are many good places to eat nearby and the beach was powder white sand. This is a special place. You will not go wrong to stay at this wonderful place!! We would love to come back soon.

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Tortola to celebrate a 60th birthday.
Alfresco does what it says on the tin. It's a wonderful retreat with lots of glorious corners and areas outside for eating, drinking, swimming, reading, dozing or just chilling.
The view from the warm infinity pool seems to stretch to the horizon. Whether you're just bobbing around with cocktail in hand or completing a few lengths in the pool, and getting in presents no problem at all.
An elevated position affords Alfresco a wonderful view of Long Beach, a wide sea-scape and the outline of other British Virgin islands just waiting to be explored.
The master bedroom commands wonderful ocean views and has every luxury and indulgence you can only dream of, including a massive bed and a walk-in shower to die for. The other two bedrooms are just as luxurious and as well appointed.
The island of Tortola is strewn with excellent restaurants, all serving good local dishes and of course, excellent Caribbean cocktails!

Manager response: We are delighted you enjoyed Alfresco and Tortola, always nice to hear that our guests had a good time. Hope you will make a return visit in the not too distant future. Thanks once again.
a perfect vacation

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Tortola. We stayed at Alfresco which is a new villa. We were met at the airport by Sam the villa manager and escorted to Alfresco. The house is beautiful with everything thought of. From the deck the views are simply amazing. This was the ideal holiday home to spend with family. There were different places to relax but a very large deck where you can spend time as a family. The kitchen had everything you need but to be honest we ate out every evening but did manage to use the barbeque at lunchtime. Long Bay Beach is simply stunning, it was never busy, no vendors and the sand is just as you would expect in the Caribbean to be with the clearest water. A truly memorable vacation we will definitely return to Alfresco when we can. Many thanks.

In Love with Alfresco!

Our family just returned home from our week long stay in the villa Alfresco located above Long Bay on the beautiful island of Tortola. We have been to Tortola a number of times now and will definitely be returning again to Alfresco. This home is so tastefully and comfortably furnished, the views are simply spectacular, perfectly located within minutes of the best beaches and a variety of dining options. The home is immaculate, the pool and outdoor living areas are ideal for spending time while enjoying ocean views and fresh breezes. Far and away the best home we have ever stayed in on Tortola!

Stayed at Alfresco in February for our 20th Anniversary, had a wonderful time lazing by the pool.The villa is beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice. The pool lights are fascinating, watching them change colour. Tortola was such a lovely island and we are planning to return to alfresco with friends in September. Thanks again for a memoarable stay.
