Gingerbread trims a large, terracotta tiled veranda, which
engulfs three sides of the cottage, and a private dining deck
built out over the sea with steps leading directly to the
shore. An open floor plan on the inside is simply Caribbean
elegant with terracotta floors overlaid with rugs, bamboo and
rattan furnitures. A fully equipped kitchen area is very
functional as well as the traditionally styled bathroom with a
walk-in tiled shower. A romantically draped, four-poster bed
gently embraces soft ocean breezes.
Outside, on the capacious wrap around
balcony, there are tables and chairs, sun-loungers, and a
king-sized hammock which enable guests to enjoy full sun and
maximum tanning, or retreat to the shade and enjoy the
refreshing sea breezes as they prefer. There is also a covered
external cooking area, with a full-sized professional
barbecue, grill and cook-top for al fresco meals. Beach and
bath towels and robes are supplied, along with a welcome pack
of drinks and groceries on arrival. A maid is available to
make the bed, replace towels and provide laundry services. Ice
will be provided daily for drinks. Well before your arrival
your grocery, beverage and liquor order will be taken and
stocked into Seagrape's well appointed kitchen on the day you
arrive. In addition, restaurants and shops are only a five
minute boat ride away.
Little Thatch is a 54-acre, privately owned
island just a few minutes by boat from Soper's Hole at the
West End of Tortola. The island was made habitable by its
English owners a few years ago, and is now one of the most
idyllic venues in the Caribbean.
It has a golden beach, fringed with coconut
palms and the seagrapes from which the guest cottage has taken
its name. The water is so clear you dont even need a
snorkel to view the amazing variety of fish, and the gentle
sea breezes ensure that the heat never becomes oppressive.
