About this listing
Nestled in Montserrat's rainforest-covered hills, with breathtaking sea views and a ten minute walk to an often deserted beach, this secluded hideaway is perfect for those seeking a restorative and utterly peaceful vacation.
This is a elegant, recently renovated two storey villa with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two reception rooms and a beautiful grand piano-shaped swimming pool. The villa has arguably the best views on the island. Because it is west facing, sundowner cocktails on either of the 60ft uninterrupted, sea-facing balconies, or pool deck are a must.
The house is situated in Montserrat's Woodland Beach area at the end of a private cul de sac, shared by only one other villa. A ten minute amble takes you to a secluded beach, where you'll often discover you are its only visitors. In season (August-November) you may be lucky enough to see turtles nesting or hatching. The offshore reefs are teaming with life and can be explored by snorkel from the beach (or diving can be arranged).
The villa has a new modern fitted fully-equipped kitchen, a laundry, internet, cable TV, gas barbecue and a large totally private garden.
We are happy to provide advice for visitors via email in advance of their stay, and our on-island agent will provide all additional information or services needed.
Montserrat remains a Caribbean secret, quaintly reminiscent of the 1950s, a far cry from neighboring Antigua. With so little tourism, and as Montserratians are unfailingly welcoming, visitors become part of island life. An active volcano (an entirely safe distance away) makes for fascinating exploration, as do numerous guided forest treks.
Montserrat is a one-off; it grabs your heart and visitors invariably return.
Car hire will be necessary or you can rent the car I keep at the villa. Our agent will arrange.
Guests have access to the whole house, garden and pool deck.
Interaction with guests
I will not be present during my guests' stay but my agent on Montserrat is available for help and advice if needed.
Other things to note
The villa is finished to a very high standard and has a lovely ambiance.
I would be grateful if guests would be conservative in their use of electricity, water and gas as all are expensive on Montserrat.
