Sol Y Sombra


Welcome to our luxury Villa, Sol y Sombra. This wonderful villa is a first-class luxury vacation property unlike any other in the Caribbean. Sol y Sombra is set right on one of the most beautiful and tucked-away beaches in Virgin Gorda, Little Trunk Bay. You are also very close to other beaches including The Baths, Devil's Bay, Spring Bay, and Valley Trunk Bay.

Sol y Sombra's five private pavilions offer luxury and seclusion in a magnificent and unforgettable tropical setting, with over an acre of tropical gardens. The property is completely fenced and gated within an inclusive enclave on Virgin Gorda's scenic leeward coast.

The villa is located on Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. Virgin Gorda may be reached by air through San Juan or St. Thomas or by water taxi from Tortola. This ultra-deluxe estate is available for vacation rentals by the week or by the month.

The Bedroom Pavilions
Sol y Sombra consists of 3 luxury beachfront pavilions, all surrounding the 30-foot vanishing edge swimming pool. All offer spectacular views of the Caribbean and the estate's landscaped gardens. The villa has five separate bedroom suites, each with a private outdoor terrace, bath, air conditioning, flat-screen television, DVD, mini-refrigerator and telephone.

All suites are furnished with custom-crafted solid teak furniture, cushions and luxury cottons. Hand-assembled native stone, honey-colored French limestone and lavender marble give each suite an elegant, timeless aura. French doors allow each pavilion to open completely to the sea breezes and allowing our guests to take in the beautiful sun-rise each morning.

Master Bedroom Pavilion
The luxurious master bedroom suite is the closest to the beach, with a private path to Valley Trunk Bay and to Little Trunk Bay. This suite has two private terraces where guests can take in the relaxing sea air. There is a stunning shower with ocean vistas, spacious bath with lavender marble vanity, desk alcove, and a king British colonial poster bed. This suite gives absolute luxury and privacy.

Sugar Mill Pavilion
The Sugar Mill features two suites, with separate entrances. The lower suite adjoins the 30-foot long vanishing-edge pool, with an oversized bath and walk-in closet and dressing area. Two single beds furnish this suite designed particularly with children or young adults in mind. The upper Sugar Mill suite is a dramatic adult retreat, with one of the most spectacular views in the Caribbean. The outdoor terraces rest on a two-story boulder, offering exquisite views of neighbouring islands and cays.

Tennis Pavilion
The tennis pavilion has its own separate living room, terrace, observation deck and master bedroom suite. The lighted private tennis court allows guests to enjoy a game of tennis, at any time of the day, without reservations. And also the tennis court doubles as a basketball court.

The Main Pavilion
The main pavilion offers a European-style kitchen with stainless steel appliances, Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator and granite counters giving you ideal cooking surroundings should you decide to dine in. There is also an office with facsimile, computer, telephone and internet access, and a formal dining room. The Great Room's formal dining area seats twelve guests inside, and includes an informal dining area on the terrace which is ideal for dining alfresco. A cook is also available upon request. At night, the elegant living room is transformed into a private movie theatre so that guests may enjoy their own movies with a professional sound system.

Adjoining the Great Room is an open-air gym with a smooth bamboo floor that features exercise equipment and satellite TV. Equipment includes treadmill, elliptical trainer, recumbent bike, and a weight bench with many free weights.

The Pool
Sol y Sombra's vanishing edge swimming pool melts into the Caribbean, just a few feet from a seaside lawn. The swimming pool is perfect to relax in after a day of hiking and exploring, while taking in the breathtaking views of the turquoise ocean.

The Beach
The villa borders two spectacular beaches, one a broad expanse of coral sand framed by palm trees and the surf. The second is a sheltered cove protected by Virgin Gorda's uniquely dramatic boulders. Sol y Sombra's guests can enjoy the mystery and drama of Virgin Gorda's famous "Baths" on their very own secluded beaches. A living reef beckons just beyond the villa's lawn.

This villa is a beachfront home. It should be noted that beaches change their shape and size from day to day, week to week and month to month, mainly as a response to seasonal waves, currents and tides. Every effort has been made to depict the beach in front of this property, but temporary changes may occur.

We also offer Luxury Yacht Charters. Our yachts are the pinnacle of luxury allowing you to enjoy a 5 star experience on board your own personal floating villa.

Area description

Sol y Sombra is set right on one of the Caribbean's most beautiful and tucked-away beaches, Little Trunk Bay. You are also very close to other beaches including The Baths, Devil's Bay, Spring Bay, and Valley Trunk Bay. Sol y Sombra is located on Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands. Virgin Gorda may be reached by air through San Juan or St. Thomas or by water taxi from Tortola.

Virgin Gorda is one of the most well-known of the British Virgin Islands and is home to the world famous Baths – a collection of huge granite boulders that stand at the water’s edge, on the pristine white sand, and are a reminder of the volcanic origins of the island. The Baths are one of the best places to go snorkelling. Arrays of tropical fish live amongst the tunnels and crevices formed by these enormous granite boulders as they meet the sea. The Famous Baths are best to be visited after 4pm in the afternoon when the cruise ships have disappeared and you can enjoy them all to yourself!

Virgin Gorda enjoys a gentle pace of life, with days generally spent on the beach, watching the sea for dolphins or whales. Those seeking a bit more activity can take to the water for snorkelling or diving. The waters around the islands are filled with underwater caves, lava tunnels and dramatic ship wrecks so there is a variety of sites to suit every level of diver.

Spring Bay
Sprinkled with boulders, this stretch of white sand is one of Virgin Gorda's loveliest and features some of The BVI's clearest waters.

Devil’s Bay
Accessible by boat or by walking through the trails of The Baths, this National Park beach offers pure white sand sprinkled with large granite boulders, as well as deep blue Caribbean waters rich with marine life and coral for captivating diving and snorkelling.

Near The Baths

Expert Review Pic Sol y Sombra is a gorgeous home. Located right on the beach you only have to take a quick swim and you are at the famous ‘Baths’. It really is a fantastic location. The setting is beautiful with glorious ocean views and I really like how one of the suites was built on top of a volcanic rock and how it is part of the bedroom below. This really adds character to the house by including some local history.
