Description from manager

As its name implies, the Sea View Cottage provides guests with unimpeded sea views, but as they are from the hilltop of a private island, the views are unprecedented and stunning. Set amongst the 800+ acres of Guana Island in the British Virgin Islands, this one-bedroom bungalow offers visitors exquisite views of the Caribbean and Atlantic waters. Gaze out at neighboring Tortola and over the rolling landscape of the islands, and all from the privacy of your own terrace.

Described as understated yet elegant, this villa is ideal for the couple looking for a truly romantic holiday or escape. With the lovely pool terrace that offers up an infinity edge pool that looks out over White Bay Beach, it will easily become your favorite place to sip drinks or cocktails each day. With a stocked wet bar and al fresco seating on the terrace as well as within your private gardens, you may not want to leave.

The interior spaces are also designed to provide the perfect hideaway and include the furnished verandah gazing out to sea, the cheerful and spacious bedroom with its own terrace, and your charming bathroom with rain head shower.

There is no need for a kitchen, however, because the meals are all prepared and served at the impressive and beautiful Great House, which is the hub of the island's activities. Enjoy cocktails or coffee, take your meals on the terraces or in the dining rooms, and experience lovingly prepared local foods that you will never forget. Food service is available all day so don't worry about sticking to a fixed schedule.

With seven beaches on the island, and the White Bay beach within walking distance, you will love your time at Sea View Cottage and will yearn to return long after you head home.
