Private and stylish, The Refuge is the ultimate Tortola beach villa! The three beautiful bedroom suites, each with its own private balcony and sea views, and the spacious great room are all centrally air-conditioned.
On either side of the upper-level entry foyer are two bedroom suites: a king master suite with its own kitchenette, and a two-twin bed suite. A curved staircase leads to The Refuge's main level, with the kitchen, dining area and great room on one side and the second king master bedroom/bath suite on the other. In the middle is a powder room and French doors which open out to a small deck set with chaise lounges and the refreshing dip pool.
The high-ceilinged, comfortable great room is the heart of The Refuge. Sofas and chairs provide gathering space for everyone, and a large 42-inch flat screen cable TV, DVD player and a Bose iPod dock are ready for your entertainment. Tall French doors open out to a furnished, oceanview verandah and the pool alcove. The sleek kitchen is adjacent. Alongside is a round dining table for six, and just outside through French doors is a covered alfresco dining area, bordered by tropical landscaping and overlooking the ocean.
Across the foyer is The Refuge's two-twin suite, artfully designed in loft fashion, looking down into the Great Room and through a high, perfectly-situated window framing azure Brewer's Bay and blue skies beyond. Doors across the loft wall can be closed for privacy.
Exiting from the dining area, you can take a trail with railroad-tie steps (no railings or lighting) just 60 feet down to the perfect white sands of Brewer's Bay, where you can swim, snorkel and enjoy walks along the long beach. The Refuge is artfully designed for both spacious seclusion for couples and togetherness for families.

My husband and I stayed at Refuge for a week in April/May 2013. We were specifically looking for a get-away-from-it-all vacation, and that's exactly what we found at this beautiful villa. The location is incredibly quiet and remote feeling, even though you're only a short drive away from restaurants, grocery, etc. The entire house was immaculate - I was impressed with how clean it was. The a/c throughout the house worked perfectly. The wifi Internet access also worked well the entire week. Everything we needed for preparing meals was found in the stocked kitchen. The plunge pool is perfect for cooling off and enjoying the unobstructed view of the bay. The highlight of the villa for us was the short nature trail down to the nearly-private beach. The long stretch of beach below Refuge is soft sand with plenty of shade or sun. I'd highly recommend Refuge to families, couples, small groups of friends, and anyone who is looking for a truly peaceful place to stay. - Susan M., Virginia, USA

This is a great villa. It\'s new and we loved the modern design and the privacy of the place. Most days we had the beach completely to ourselves. The view of the daily sunset was the icing on the cake. The water is clear and with a nearby reef, great snorkeling right off the beach. our 2 year old loved it! - David B., New York, USA
Very comfortable and relaxing.

Everything with the house was perfect other maybe that the Wifi was very erratic and really only worked in the evenings at times. The mattress in the downstairs bedroom needs to be changed . It was uncomfortable as it sagged greatly in the middle . Otherwise no complaints , had a great time , would recommend to others without a hesitation. - Patrick R., , Switzerland
