North Sound’s Nirvana – Feature Property: Dos Sols Villa
Words by Jennifer Jenkins, Agent – Coldwell Banker BVI
Dos Sols Villa is perched on near an acre of freehold land above Little Leverick Bay beach in the North Sound of Virgin Gorda. Spectacular views, cool breezes and easy access to the beach make this property rare and highly desirable.
The property is 50 yards from the closest white sand beach in ideal proximity to all the water sports activities in the North Sound, including pristine snorkelling opportunities directly in front of the villa.
With a nearby boat yard, boat ramp, moorings, and a full service marina at the Leverick Bay Resort, this villa is perfect for homeowners who wish to explore the neighbouring islands and all the local hotspots in the North Sound. The true north orientation of this villa, plus steady easterly trade winds makes it a dream come true for windsurfers, kite surfers, kayakers and sailors.
An attractive amenity, the gourmet kitchen features native stone accents and new stainless steel appliances. The unique architectural design separates each bedroom from the main villa, allowing family and friends to gather on the large covered veranda or pool deck, while providing the privacy and intimacy of separate bedroom cottages.
Bedrooms encompass three detached cottages and one lower level main villa bedroom located adjacent to the pool all complete with en-suite baths.
A total of four bedrooms plus a den with accommodations for up to eleven individuals, each is air-conditioned with Caribbean-style outdoor showers overlooking the water. Bedrooms are clustered on different levels around a freeform pool and native stone deck.
The pool is comfortably heated allowing for continued enjoyment of the water during winter months of shorter daylight hours and brisk breezes.
“Sea Aria”, the master suite cottage, is designed for privacy and intimacy with a king-size bed, sitting area, mini-refrigerator, coffee-maker, covered veranda with fabulous views to Prickly Pear Island and the North Sound boating channel.
“Grotto” is situated below the pool with steps to the bottom of the property and beach access; a queen-size bed and two twin beds permit creative sleeping arrangements. A mini-refrigerator and coffee-maker allow a morning beverage break on the covered veranda.
“Poolside” is located, as its name suggests, adjacent to the swimming pool. This intimate room is furnished with a queen-size bed, air conditioning, coffee-maker and outdoor Caribbean shower.
“Para Docs” is positioned just next to the pool and features a native stone outdoor shower, king-size bed and beautiful views of the North Sound.
The grounds of Dos Sols Villa are tended to by a private gardener with pathways that grant admiration of the beautiful tropical flowers and trees. Bananas, mangos, limes, oranges, pineapples, papaya, and coconut are some of the many fruits grown on the property and available while in season.
In walking distance to Leverick Bay Resort, residents can experience shopping, a fine dining restaurant, a fun beach bar restaurant with live music, a spa, a laundry facility, a full service Marina, a dive shop and a grocery store with plenty of gourmet selections to choose from.
With these conveniences heightening the overall living experience, Dos Sols Villa comfortably bestows the calm and tranquil lifestyle renowned of the Caribbean.
