Luxury Caribbean Villa 6 bedrooms Two Pools. Staff
Imagine yourself sitting high on a mountain, a place of peace and tranquillity, looking down onto the world below. Skimming the tops of the Virgin Islands, each one a luscious green hill, dipped in glistening turquoise seas
Imagine being able to see far and wide across the islands of St John, Jost Van Dyke, St Thomas and Puerto Rico, and down onto the dramatic beaches of Long Bay and Smugglers Cove.
Imagine all of this and more, and you have the luxurious Tingalayo.
This exclusive private estate rests occupies nearly 4 acres of land. A tropical paradise, embracing a sense of total relaxation and freedom. The open living floorplan, with expansive hardwood decks and hints of Bali, provides a place for contemplation. Each time you stop and think you've seen everything, you find a new treasure: breadfruit trees, hibiscus, aloe, golden flowers. A combination of tastes with wonderful art pieces spanning Italian modern, Buddhist temple to Caribbean vibes. You have found paradise.
Caribbean flavor is introduced through a blend of colours in each room: flamingo pink for the entertainment room, ocean blue for the master bedroom suite, cool sky blue in the kitchen and living area, rustic orange for the BBQ and dining area, and a tantalising teal for the second of the bedrooms.
This luxury villa is designed around the ultimate in Infinity Pools, shaped like a large cloud, with a spacious terrace on one side and courtyard with a dining pavilion on the other, allowing you to take in the stunning ocean and island vistas. On a clear day, guests can see all the way to Puerto Rico from this truly unique location.
From the pool you can access the Lounge Area. The lounge has cool blue walls, large bookshelves, a flat screen television and stereo with Ipod docking unit, allowing you to while away the hours in relaxation with the family and guests.
The spectacular Kitchen is best described as contemporary Caribbean Cottage on a grand scale, with heavy granite counter tops, a Viking stove/oven and separate pantry with two large fridge/freezers and two dishwashers.
The first of the bedrooms with an en suite bathroom is the Ocean-Blue Master Suite, completely private from the rest of the house and offering spectacular views of Jost Van Dyke, with an adjoining large private decking area outside, equipped with heated Jacuzzi tub and fabulous four-poster outdoor day bed.
Just a few steps away, you find the Flamingo Pink Media Room, alive with bright and bold artwork and with its own heart stopping views of the surrounding islands from a large private balcony taking up nearly the entire west wall. Heavy mahogany French doors, built to keep the light out for those cosy evenings in, create the perfect environment for snuggling up to watch a film on the 52 inch flat screen TV with surround sound. A wonderfully cool retreat from the midday sun and a chance to relax in state of the art air-conditioned surroundings.
Returning to the main pavilion and just off the kitchen you have the Outdoor Dining Room in a rustic orange. Offering a delightful indoor-outdoor eating experience, amplified by the breathtaking backdrop. Equipped with a magnificent heavy cedar dining table that seats 12, you can dine in style, with state of the art BBQ, two wine fridges and concrete counter work surfaces. An ideal spot to take in the sunsets and spectacular moonlit nights as the sea becomes a silver paradise for you to enjoy.
Explore the other side of the pool and you enter an Enchanting Haven Two Bedroom Suite. Heavy mahogany doors open onto a large shared bathroom intricately decorated with a splendor of sea green mosaic tiles, equipped with a shower, ingenious bathtub for the kids and double basin. The suites are simple and innocent in design, with Italian country style beds and bookshelves brought to life with a splash of vibrant colour with a funky art Deco orange sofa seat and colorful beads.
Follow the covered decking around and you reach the Fairytale Suite. Kept blissfully cool by the sea breeze which floats in through the wall sized window opening out onto the islands below. This suite says Romantic Italian& with a four-poster bed with hidden dressing area and private, outdoor shower & yet another great spot from which to enjoy the unsurpassed views!
At the other end of the garden is a delightful, very private 2 bedroom guest cottage with equally breath taking views with its own heated plunge pool. Finished a similar style to the main house, with the same flair and open plan lounge and kitchen area and bedrooms fully air- conditioned. A covered terrace area surrounds a small heated plunge pool with yet more explosive views!
All the bedrooms have air-conditioning and ceilings fans. All is kept to a very high standard by a full time gardener, carpenter and a maid all managed by a very responsible local company that will be able to cater for all your needs, from cooks, car rentals to motor boat rentals.TripAdvisor property ID 4287588...Read more

I organized a one week trip to Tortola for a group of 14 friends and we had an absolutely unbeatable time thanks to Tingalayo. After 7 days of waking up to the best views on the island, we still couldn't get over how beautiful it was up there. We were never bored and filled our week by relaxing by the infinity pool, reading on the numerous wooden decks, snacking/eating at the numerous outdoor dining areas around the property, doing yoga by the pool, and getting massages while gazing at the ocean views.
It's a 20 minute drive to Road Town and a 10 minute drive to West End marina/ferry. The road up to the house is steep and windy and taxi drivers will not know how to get there so it is absolutely necessary to rent an SUV while you're there. Lynn (the house manager) does have taxi contacts however and we used 2 of them for airport rides and for going into town for dinner and drinking one night.
But...with a villa as nice as Tingalayo (and with a fabulous kitchen), we decided it was pretty much unnecessary to leave. You can order groceries online and they are delivered right to the kitchen - we had wonderful Bbqs every night!
This villa is also perfect for multiple couples/families since there is a guest cottage, a master cottage, and a main house. The place is huge so you can always find a quiet, private space to sit and read or nap.

The house must have the best view on Tortola its simply breathtaking.
We loved the property ,beautifully furnished with a cook's kitchen, it is so quiet and peacefull up there. A cool house in more ways than one. The staff were very helpfull and arranged for spa treatments at the house.
On the downside the road to the house was steep and single track - thank goodness we had a 4 wheel drive vehicle - but you would expect that to get to the "top of the world".

this is a large property perched almost at the highest point of tortola, facing
west. the view, as a result, was nothing short of gobsmacking, and the sunsets
went well beyond that. i could have sat on that deck for weeks and never have
seen the same scene twice - sailboats, whales, clouds, storms, the changing
colours of the sea. it was magnificent, there really is no other word for it.
i liked the way the houses were independent: we all had our own kitchens,
decks (all great views), gardens and pools but gathered at the main house
because it had the biggest kitchen, biggest dining and a big pool to die for.
everything worked just fine, lots of fridge space, good sound system, path
lighting, nice beds, yaddayadda. only negative was the road up but that's
typically BVI. my husband and i stayed on for a couple of days to dive down to
the RMS Rhone, a british mail ship that went down in the late 1800s, and it
was honestly the best dive i have ever done. it was a fantastic holiday, just the
right mix of relaxing and sporty, i'd do it again in a flash.
