Whether it’s the turquoise seas by day or the sparkling stars at night, the views from Oil Nut Bay’s Reef House are incredibly hard to beat. Nestled in the hills of Virgin Gorda in the coveted North Sound region of the British Virgin Islands, this $12.5 million dollar home faces west, offering stunning sunsets and the perfect amount of afternoon sunshine.
With more than 4,700 sq. ft., spread across 2.17 acres, Reef House is split into four separate bedrooms, or pods, each with its own balcony, safe, and en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers. This design is perfect for having friends or family visit, giving guests their own private suites.
The original owners drew inspiration for Reef House from luxury hotels visited around the world. The home is offered fully furnished and features gorgeous, international design pieces. Three pods are furnished with a Westin Heavenly King-size bed, with the fourth pod featuring a Vispring luxury bed which can be split into two single beds.
The expansive great room brings everyone together, providing a spot where they can marvel at views of the surrounding reefs from behind the room’s soaring floor to ceiling windows. From there, guests can step outside and jump into the heated infinity lap pool, where swimmers can imagine they’re gliding through the sapphire seas seen below.
Dry off and sip a delicious, tropical cocktail while sitting under a covered tiki hut. There’s one on each side of the pool.
If guests want to take a break from the serenity and gorgeous views, they can check out the media room. The space features a large, flat-screen TV and can also be used as an extra room for a child, complete with an adjoining shower and bathroom.
A private chef, or the cook of the family, will appreciate the home’s fully equipped gourmet kitchen. Reef House’s developers brought in the best appliances from Miami, including a large sub-zero fridge, sub-zero freezer with an ice maker and wine cooler, along with a range, oven, and microwave all by Wolf.
Since Oil Nut Bay is only accessible by boat or helicopter, privacy is a way of life. Guests staying at the Reef House can count on having an intimate stay, while still enjoying the amenities of the island resort, such as a beach club with three pools and a swim-up bar, gym and wellness center, two pickleball courts, two tennis courts, and plenty of equipment for water sports like kayaking and sailing.
With a 40-foot boat slip, the Reef House is a dream Caribbean getaway. Dock your boat and revel in the serenity exuded from this peaceful retreat.
