Description from owner

This comfortable villa has been our family's dream for many years. Prices are base rates for 1-4 guests and are negotiable depending on the season, the number of guests, and length of stay. Please contact us for a quotation.

A five-minute rural winding road with some radical switchbacks brings you up to the house, situated on the top of a mountain overlooking Little Apple Bay at the western part of the small island of Tortola.

The property consists of two houses; the main house and a guest house. Together they can accommodate a total of 8 people.

The house is equipped with every amenity you need to make your stay perfect. The land covers one acre and will guarantee you privacy and peace.

There is a beautiful big pool (22ftX15ft) to cool you during the daytime or in the evening under the stars.

The property is fenced, and there is a gate that leads to a gravel driveway covered on one side in bougainvillea where you without difficulty can park three cars.

The garden around the villa is beautifully landscaped; you will find all sorts of lovely Caribbean flowers and fruit like bananas, limes, star fruit, sugar apples, and pineapples.

The house is only suitable for children that can swim; in the guest house is a bunk bed and upstairs in the main house is a lovely bedroom. On request, we can leave some toys, etc. In the garden you find a swing and around the house is plenty of grass, space and shade.

We have one very sweet cat named Habibi, who live outside. She is our full-time staff member who are there to keep mouse etc. far away from our lovely home.

Villa Layout:

The main villa has two bedrooms; a master bedroom with a king bed downstairs and a second big bedroom with two queen beds upstairs.

The master bedroom has an attached outside bathroom with impressive views of many surrounding islands and the azure Caribbean waters.

An authentic spiral staircase leads up to the second bedroom which has a dark wooden floor, high ceiling and is attractively decorated. The views from this bedroom are stunning, overlooking the Jost Van Dyke channel, which is dotted with small islands such as Green Cay, Sandy Spit, and Sandy Cay. Note: The bathroom for this bedroom is at the bottom of the stairs.

All bedrooms have air conditioning which is much appreciated in summer months. The living room and kitchen are fully open (but screened) to the veranda, usually cooled by a lovely trade wind.

The master bedroom and the living room/open kitchen have large wooden doors that open up the whole wall onto a verandah where you find a second living area with a dining table that seats up to eight people and a relaxing sitting area.

Because most of the living room/kitchen is open to the deck, the verandah, and main house feel like one space.

The guest house is separated from the main house by a swimming pool and lawn. The guest house can sleep, four people. There is a king bed and bunk beds. The bunk beds are not in a separate room but in a divided area, so we would suggest these beds are only used for children. Also, the guest house has large wooden doors that open completely from floor to the ceiling, so while reading a book on the king bed, you enjoy the beautiful sunsets that you can expect to see here every day.

You can optimally enjoy your privacy at Pelican Peak; in principle, the villa is only cleaned after check-out. If you stay for seven nights or longer, a midweek cleaning service will be offered to you free of charge. The towels will be changed as part of this service, and the bedsheets will be changed weekly.

Guests need to provide their own meals. We can provide you with information for a private chef on request.

From anywhere within the main villa, the guest house, outside on the deck, swimming in the pool, relaxing on the daybed or sitting elsewhere in the garden you will be able to see far and wide across the Caribbean sea while you are listening to the waves breaking on Little Apple Bay’s beach.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the house so please email us.

About the area

The home is located in West-End Tortola, 5 minutes from the West-End ferry dock and 25 minutes from Road Town. Long bay and Smugglers are the best beaches in Tortola and both in West-End and very close to the home. Long Bay is stunning white sand beach and you can see the beach from the home. Smugglers Cove: is the most beautifully beach and is next to Long Bay Beach, this is our family’s favourite. You can see here turtles while snorkeling. Most time of the year very safe swimming.

Getting around

Tortola is a small but very hilly island, so you always need a car even for a short distance. We would advise renting a 4X4 you need this car to get to the house during rain. Also, the roads on Tortola are not always in good condition. Renting a car is very easy, and the car rental people will meet you on arrival or will leave your car with keys at the dock.

Getting here

If you are flying from the states than St. Thomas USVI is a good option. The airport code is STT, make sure you land no later than 3 pm. This way you have plenty time to get on the ferry to West end Tortola. The ferry ride will take about 45 minutes and is a beautiful ride; the boat docks at the harbor in Tortola west-end and this is about 5 minutes from home. Another airport is Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport at Beef Island. Airports code EIS Airport. It’s a 45-minute drive from Beef Island Airport to West-End Tortola. If you are flying from Europe than flying via St. Maarten (Airport code SXM) is a good option. There are daily flights from Paris and Amsterdam to St. Maarten and there are multiple connecting flights per day fr

Interaction with guest

Let us know if there is anything special you all like to do! We can provide information for the best place for a lazy beach day, or if you are little more active, we can tell you all about diving, sailing, fishing, walking, hiking, running, yoga at the beach or visits to the surrounding islands. Please let me know and I will send you more detailed info.
