Having one of the longest stretch of beach in the BVI just outside your door, is an alluring boast, but there are even more attractive reasons why Murray House is the choice villa to bring your Caribbean vacation alive.
Looking out to the ocean and seeing the tantalising view from the hills above Long Bay, the entire horizon expands from Jost Van Dyke and Sandy Cay to the northern tip of Tortola. This stunning vista is painted with turquoise waters and a mile-long white sand shore—Long Bay itself. The view invokes genuine appreciation of life that bestows the calm we all seek in a vacation. What better way to experience such serenity, than during a colourful sunset at Murray House presented by Villas of Tortola?
This newly renovated villa unveils accommodations suited to a romantic getaway for two, right through to a full family and friends’ reunion.
Entering the property from the stone drive way, encompassed by leafy green vegetation, hibiscus, and bougainvillea, the villa exhibits vibrant Caribbean colours with its orange, clay tiles and green tin roof exterior – traditional design shades that immediately let residents know they are in the tropics.
The airy and spacious nature in Murray House grants a real sense of autonomy for every visitor – the breeze that glides through is a refreshing reminder that they are surrounded by a natural environment, escaping the hustle of city life.
The ample sitting room features furniture with floral patterns, a library, a television, potted plants, and a high cathedral ceiling, all synchronised to create a warm experience away from home.
The contemporary Caribbean style villa can host its guests in a choice of three bedrooms with three and a half bathrooms. The master bedroom is downstairs next to the pool, and adjacent, above the dining porch and overlooking the pool are the second bedroom comprised of a king/two twins and the third bedroom with a king bed; this division is perfect for allowing children their independence or space between separate families.
All bedrooms have been recently outfitted with handmade Balinese teak furniture and house their own satellite TVs; however, the choice to enjoy the sounds of the gentle ocean crashing against the rocks is a more common use of vacationer’s time. With the options for indoor or outdoor showering, the villa’s theme of easy-living is promoted in line with the Caribbean’s global image of relaxation.
The refurbished kitchen designed with clean, white walls and cabinetry, has all the modern appliances necessary for culinary liberation, but with a plethora of restaurants nearby, the alternative to enjoy traditional Caribbean cuisine and community, may prove the stronger persuasion.
A creative mind allows for a multitude of dining options at this villa. Whether alfresco with one of the two designated outdoor dining spots, lying in one of loungers, or eating in the sitting room, visitors will be fully satisfied by the property’s connection with the environment by carefully crafted entry-ways, allotting smooth air circulation.
The pool and outdoor grill are great features for creating mid-evening gatherings, while awe-struck by the colours of a sunset, or the many stars that dot the night sky.
Most distinctive about Murray House is the on-site outdoor space, entertaining shaded and unsheltered verandas, allowing vacationers to relish the tropical climate that they’ve flown to enjoy. Its location in Long Bay permits guests to maximise their vacation time together, whether it be in the villa or out enjoying the amenities close-by. Being a few minutes’ walk to the beach, many will find their days fulfilled by sunbathing on this quiet shore.
Murray House is a short drive from many shops and restaurants located in the West End, including Soper’s Hole Marina, Apple Bay, and Carrot Bay. Heading along the north coast are a multitude of secluded bays to explore, leading to Cane Garden Bay, unanimously known as the most popular beach on Tortola with an array of waterfront dining options, bars, and buzzing social atmosphere. With the marina neighbouring Long Bay, the preference to visit other islands is easily afforded with many taking a jaunt to Jost Van Dyke to explore the renowned White Bay – a favourite for many North American and Canadian patrons.
With so much to see and do—all easily accessible—vacationers will savour the freedom that Murray House grants.
