Sol y Sombra
Sol y Sombra
The natural beauty surrounding this first-class, ultra-deluxe private beach estate will truly take your breath away; your choice of two perfect white-sand beaches are just steps away from Sol y Sombra through either of two carved gates.
Entering this enchanting villa, a coral stone staircase leads down through luxuriant landscaping where the drama of this superb property unfolds: four pavilions within fully-fenced and gated grounds embrace a sweeping coral stone terrace set with a large infinity-edge pool and bordered by an expanse of green lawn.
The spacious main pavilion offers a large Great Room with a state-of-the-art entertainment system, a shaded terrace with wet bar just outside, and is flanked by a formal dining room which seats 12 (with additional seating for 8 just outside on the covered terrace; perfect for lazy breakfasts) and a wonderful gourmet kitchen fully equipped with a Viking gas range, wine fridge and all expected SubZero and Cuisinart appliances.
Adjoining is the office, completely outfitted with a computer, printer, fax, cable TV and a half bath. An enclosed and air-conditioned gym features exercise equipment and satellite TV. Just outside and at one end of the pool is the second pavilion offering an air-conditioned king master suite with its own covered verandah, walk-in closet and a beautiful bath with an exotic alfresco shower looking out to a burst of tropical flowers.
On the other end of the pool is Sol y Sombra’s second pavilion, ingeniously built around huge smooth boulders for which Virgin Gorda is famous. This pavilion offers a pool-level air-conditioned bedroom/bath suite with two twin beds and its own verandah, and above it via a staircase curving around a mammoth boulder is the unique second air-conditioned master suite.
This dramatic bedroom/bath suite opens out to a pergola terrace, a private and breathtaking vantage point offering fantastic sea views off the Baths and of green islands and cays to the horizon. The Tennis Suite, an air-conditioned guest house, is situated behind the Great Room pavilion, just across the estate’s private tennis court, and boasts its own air-conditioned sitting room with two twin daybeds, cable TV and a kitchenette; an air-conditioned king bedroom and full bath adjoins.
This suite is bordered by a partially-shaded verandah, and from it a circular staircase climbs to a cool rooftop aerie. Luxurious Sol y Sombra is distinguished by sumptuous Thai teak furnishings adorned with rich fabrics, handcrafted mahogany windows and doors with brass fittings, handsome native stonework, cool gold-hued coral stone flooring (so kind to bare feet, inside and out), gaily-painted umbrellas poolside and a charming collection of elephants gracing garden nooks and crannies.
A cook is available by request; no staff live on the estate, so your complete privacy at secluded Sol y Sombra is assured. This A-list beach property promises a holiday of a lifetime to those seeking the very best for their private Caribbean holiday…five stars, and with our own personal recommendation!
Guests 9 and 10 may sleep on the 2 twin daybeds in the Tennis Suite’s air-conditioned living area. Both guests must be children under 18 years only, please.
