The opportunity of a lifetime lives in Little Bay, Tortola. Not only one but two incredible properties are available, and Maritha Keil and BVI Sotheby’s International Realty are offering uncompromised service to go along with these fantastic homes.
Tucked quietly away in Little bay private estates, Seaside Escape provides just that – a sophisticated island escape like none other. In fact, few homes in the BVI offer such impressive architectural design and such exquisite attention to detail. No expense was spared when creating this incredibly structurally-secure home. Custom designed by the owners and interior architect Debi Carson, Seaside Escape offers high-end finishes, distinguished craftsmanship and refined furnishings that are gracefully combined to make this secluded private estate home your own personal oasis.
Located just 10 minutes from the airport and only 20 minutes to town, Seaside Escape is a beautifully open, fully air-conditioned home overlooking one of the BVI’s most pristine white-sand beaches.
As you enter the grand living and dining area, you’ll be greeted by 20-ft cathedral ceilings with carefully crafted wood beam trusses and panelled walls. A huge expanse of hurricane-proof sliding glass doors makes the view of the 60-foot horizon edge pool and the spectacular vision of the sea beyond the star of the show. The large contemporary kitchen has clean lines, two ovens and a Sub-Zero fridge and freezer with separate wine fridge, plus an incredible walk-in butler’s pantry with additional sink and freezer.
In these “work from home” times, Seaside Escape provides his-and-her offices and a home library, perfect for getting any kind of work done or simply relaxing with a great book.
Unwind in the huge master suite, with a built-in king-sized bed and motorized TV cabinet in the footboard. A massive master bath boasts jack and jill sinks, luxurious jetted soaking tub with overflow feature and a shower with a view to die for. The walk-in closet and dressing area has plenty of storage space, and two other guest rooms ensure there is always room for everyone.
The graceful curve of the zero-entry pool makes the outdoor terrace a place you won’t want to leave. A covered, shady lounge, dining area and outdoor kitchen are perfect for a casual lunch or for watching the game on the large TV.
This home has everything and was totally renovated in 2019. Complete with fitness room, two-car garage, spacious laundry, media centre, and large lounging areas both indoors and out. Tons of storage space and impeccable hurricane-proofing measures mean this home is incredibly secure.
Maritha Keil, the Lead Broker with BVI Sotheby’s International Realty, knows that someone will absolutely fall in love with this unforgettable home. From enjoying a cup of morning coffee under the over-the-water gazebo or taking in a stunning sunset with the ocean setting the stage for another perfect Caribbean moon-lit evening, Seaside Escape has everything you want or need in a tropical home.

A newly-renovated villa is just a two- to three-minute walk to Little Bay Beach on Tortola’s pristine north shore. Most BVI residents are not even aware that this secret little cove even exists.
This lovely property, custom-designed by architect Michael Helm and the owners, Tranquility is full of modern convenience and Caribbean charm. The main house offers four bedrooms and four baths, each complete with a walk-in closet. In an increasingly busy work-from-home world, one of the bedrooms could easily be converted into your ideal home office. The master suite’s French doors open to the large patio and pool terrace. The rectangular pool is perfect for swimming laps or just enjoying the Caribbean sun. Just off of the pool terrace is a covered outdoor kitchen and bar, complete with a dining area for poolside entertaining.
The open main living area is a great space to relax and enjoy the Caribbean breezes or enjoy preparing a meal for guests. The patio right off of the living area offers amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean. A fully separate and self-sufficient guest apartment also exists below the main home and has a full kitchen and bath.
The gated property also offers paved access with parking for six vehicles with an additional covered carport.
60KW Perkins generator
Greenhouse, plus mature banana and mango trees
Hurricane-proof construction with additional hurricane shutters on all windows
Both of these incredible properties are owned by the same seller, who is willing to part with both properties separately or together.
“The unique location offers an opportunity to own in one of the BVI’s most private and secluded neighbourhoods,” said Maritha Keil, BVI Sotheby’s International Realty Lead Broker.
Little Bay Beach offers great snorkelling among the dramatic boulders located on either side of the wide bay and is located just east of Lambert Beach and geographically found on maps just opposite Guana Island. The public road access is short and unpaved, therefore it has been found a bit rough for taxis to drive on, so most don’t attempt to take any tourists there. The homeowners surrounding Little Bay Estates don’t complain because thIs lovely beach remains their private little getaway.
On the eastern side of the bay, there are some tall boulders with a hidden underwater cave that only those who may own property in the area have discovered for its adrenaline-pumping cliff diving or 30-foot high jumps. This particular beach remains one of the best white sandy shorelines for young and old swimmers alike because the waves are almost always gentle and easily manageable. There are no corals or hidden rocks on which to stumble and everyone can join in when floating, boogie-boarding or just playing in the waves.
