Sol y Sombra which means “Sun and Shade" is a premium vacation property unlike any other in the Caribbean. Set right on one of the Caribbean's most beautiful and tucked-away beaches, including The Baths, Devil's Bay, Spring Bay, and Valley Trunk Bay.
The main pavilion offers a European-style air-conditioned kitchen with stainless steel appliances, Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator and granite counters, 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, a private half-bath. A cook is available upon request.  At night, the elegant living room is transformed into a private movie theater so that guests may enjoy their own movies with a professional sound system. 
Entertainment & Amenities include: satellite TV, DVD, stereo with speakers throughout, movie and music collections, books, games, wet bar, icemakers, gas grill, generator, and exercise room.
Adjoining the Great Room is an air-conditioned gym with a smooth bamboo floor features exercise equipment and satellite TV.  Equipment includes treadmill, elliptical trainer, recumbent bike, and a weight bench with many free weights.
Sol y Sombra's vanishing edge swimming pool melts into the Caribbean Sea a few feet from a waterfront lawn.  Sol y Sombra is a secluded tropical paradise with exotic palms, cactus, sea grape and bougainvillea on its more than an acre of gardens.
Sol y Sombra has three beachfront pavilions, all surrounding the 30-foot vanishing edge swimming pool.  All offer spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea and the estate's landscaped gardens.  The villa has five separate bedroom suites, with private outdoor terraces, baths, air conditioning, flat-screen satellite TV, DVD, Bose radio,  mini-refrigerator and telephone.
All suites are furnished with custom-crafted solid teak furniture, cushions, plantation shutters 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.
This 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, a stunning shower with ocean vistas, spacious bath with lavender  marble vanity, desk alcove, and king British colonial poster bed.
The Sugar Mill houses 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-storey boulder, offering a panorama of neighboring islands and cays.
The tennis pavilion has its own separate living room, terrace, observation deck with 2 hammocks, 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, the tennis court doubles as a basketball court.
The villa borders two spectacular beaches, one a broad expanse of coral sand framed by palm trees and the surf, and the second a sheltered cove protected by Virgin Gorda's uniquely dramatic boulders.  Sol y Sombra's guests 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.  Valley Trunk Bay has over 1,000 feet of unspoiled beach.  The villa's Little Trunk Bay beach extends for approximately 350 feet, protected by its reef and giant boulders.
Sol y Sombra's five private pavilions offer luxury and seclusion in a sublime and unforgettable tropical setting, with over an acre of tropical lush gardens.  The property is completely fenced and gated within an inclusive enclave on Virgin Gorda's scenic leeward coast. For an unforgettable vacation book your stay at this popular villa today.
