Long Bay Residences present a rare opportunity to own a luxurious, turn-key villa situated within Long Bay Resort, overlooking one of the most beautiful untouched white sand beaches in Tortola with all of the resort amenities to make
this an ideal home or rental investment.
Long Bay Resort, situated on the North West side of the main island of Tortola was reopened at the end of 2020 after a total refurbishment by owners Brian and Shamra Strange, a couple originally hailing from Malibu with a special affinity for the British Virgin Islands. The property and the couple that own it both have a special provenance that come together to create something truly unique.
Steeped in history, some of Long Bay’s original stone buildings date back to the 1700’s. These have been lovingly restored to pay homage to the property’s heritage. Surrounded by gorgeous lush tropical flora and fauna with views over soft white sand and aqua coloured water towards Jost Van Dyke and the USVI to the West.
Owner Brian is one of only 350 people in the world to successfully scale the Seven Summits – climbing the highest peaks in all seven continents including Mt Everest.
This is an achievement that demonstrates the type of determination this couple have in life.
He along with his Interior Designer wife Shamra, are well-versed in the ownership and management of luxury resorts. Following the reopening of Long Bay Resort with its stunning upscale, beach luxe design the couple opened The Inn at Mattei’s Tavern in 2021, an Auberge Resorts Collection property located in California.
Auberge Resorts have a reputation as the leader in luxury boutique hospitality and the partnership affirms Brian and Sharma’s strength in creating a resort experience that is world class.
The couple have partnered once again with well-known BVI architect Dion Stoutt to create Long Bay Residences, the next step in the development of the Resort. This ownership opportunity is completely unique, turn-key and priced to sell.
There are 15 lots now available for purchase in the development with two and three bedroom floor plans available, starting at just $1.2M for a 1,500 sq ft villa. All of the villas feature plunge pools, luxurious living spaces and top-of-the line appliances, fixtures and fittings.
Ownership benefits also include access to Long Bay Resort’s full service amenities including beachfront restaurant dining at 1748, cocktail bar, beach bar and coffee shop, access to all beach amenities and a selection of outdoor and watersports activities including surfing, paddle boarding and yoga.
