Scenic Serenity

5 phenomenal ‘outdoor views’ from villas in the British Virgin Islands

Owning a property in the BVI brings many pleasures but being outdoors comes into its own during these long summer days. It is difficult to find anywhere in the BVI that does not have a great view, but some properties just stand out from the crowd with their outdoor spaces.

On the Rocks

On The Rocks was masterfully designed to sit among the gigantic boulders of The Baths on Virgin Gorda’s southern coast. 

The villa is less than a minute’s stroll to Little Trunk Bay, and adjacent to Spring Bay and Valley Trunk. This contemporary villa has four exquisitely furnished bedrooms and a bright, airy Great Room, all set around the charming sun-warmed pool terrace.

Upon an acre of tropical palms and colourful flowering plants, On The Rocks is a favourite among repeat visitors to Virgin Gorda.


Symbio—the name tells of its perfect harmony with nature.

Set unobtrusively on the hillside of Princess Quarters, the villa blends seamlessly into the lush gardens and granite boulders. From the spacious porches, the view of Spanish Town and the islands in Sir Francis Drake Channel is spectacular.

Symbio’s interior is an elegant blend of the owner’s love of ethnic, cultural, and fun-loving pieces. The outdoor spaces—including the gardens—reflect her love for nature and Zen living. A large Feng-Shui wind chime fills the air with soft melody, and a feeling of peace and calm abounds.


Guests to this luxurious villa linger on the spacious porch to enjoy the incredible view of turquoise seas and graceful yachts.

Adagio is known for its proximity to pristine Mahoe Bay with its long smooth beach and clear waters. The villa has five elegantly furnished bedrooms, a large Great Room, and a centrally located heated-pool.

It is a perfect vacation home for large groups of family and friends. The main house and guest house are masterfully designed so that each suite enjoys the spectacular ocean view, while having a private entrance, that ensures privacy and seclusion.

Sol Y Sombra

Sol Y Sombra is sought after for its beachfront setting and exquisite luxury. The beautiful infinity-edge pool is footsteps away from the warm sands and pristine waters of Little Trunk Bay.

The villa is located next to Spring Bay, Valley Trunk, and The Baths. Five beautiful suites are finished with custom-made teak furniture and luxurious linens. A gymnasium, tennis court, home-theatre, and office are among the villa’s amenities.

Set within an acre of lush tropical gardens, Sol y Sombra boasts some of the most alluring outdoor spaces on Virgin Gorda.

Hawk’s Nest

Hawk’s Nest is situated on the hillside at Hawk’s Nest in East End Tortola. This three-bedroom, two-bathroom home takes full advantage of the beautiful views spanning from Guana Island all the way to Ginger Island.

Its elevated position offers seclusion and tranquillity. The views from the exterior deck are stunning and the surrounding landscaped gardens with beautiful cactus and flowers simply enhance the outdoors at this hidden gem. The property is completely off grid—solar and gas powered—and was untouched by the storms of 2017. A true escape in every sense.
