Magic Castle Villa,Private Estate near Beach

  • bath 2 Bedrooms

  • bath 4 Sleeps


Magic Castle is a spacious, open and airy two bedroom villa perched on the side of a valley overlooking Little Bay Beach, Guana Island, and the Caribbean Sea.  This red tile roofed far-eastern pagoda is like a fairy tale from another land.  Magic Castle is surrounded by a 2 1/2 acre estate of tropical gardens and natural woodlands, entered by electronic gate and long shaded driveway.  Fruit and vegetables grow on the property in season, and shared.  
The entrance opens into the living and dining areas, with a well equipped gourmet kitchen.  Doors open all around onto the garden-edged pool terrace and wide, covered al fresco dining deck.  Soaring vaulted ceilings throughout add to the expansive feeling.  Very breezy.  There are ceiling fans in every room.
The Master Bedroom Pavilion is separated from the rest of the villa by a sparkling 8x30 ft.  SOLAR HEATED swimming pool and is wrapped by a covered deck with hammock and seating areas enjoying the magnificent panoramic view.  Screen sliders on opposite sides of the room allow the balmy Caribbean breezes to pass across the pool and right over the King size bed in the middle of the large room.  Adjacent is the Hot Tub, romantic under the sun or stars.  All private.
A second bedroom and bath is located in the main house where either twins or a king bed can be requested.  Relaxing and comfortable, this Magical setting is perfect for couples or small families.  Children over 8 years old welcome.
The Little Bay Beach, just below, has been declared the best beach on Tortola by my guests.  Usually deserted except for weekends.  It is a few minutes walk or drive downhill.  Many excellent restaurants, grocery stores, shopping and water sports activities are within 5-10 minutes drive.  A 4 wheel drive vehicle is recommended.  Most rental cars are 4WD.
The owner/manager of Magic Castle and her elusive cat Ming and very friendy dogs Stanley and Benny live in an apartment below the villa behind a curtain of flowering vines.  No part of the villa can be seen from there, assuring your privacy. Nor can sounds be heard in either direction.  She's there with a wealth of local information if you have questions.

A tremendous week with friends
Michael R.

My wife, and friends spent a terrific week at Eva's peaceful and beautiful home with a breathtaking view of the ocean. Eva was a gracious host ready to assist us with any need we had and information on where to go . It was hard to leave. we have visited quite a few of the Caribbean islands, but this was our favorite for relaxing and having our very own little paradise. Thank you Eva. Michael & Anne

Wonderful holidays
Charles S.

This review is slightly late but none the less, my wife and I truely enjoyed our stay enhanced by the owner Eva and her attention to us as bisitors. She met us at the airport upon flight arrival, directed us as we followed in our rental car to the villa. She provided a complete overview of the villa and amenties. We found the villa in spectacular shape, clean and functional. It has a view of the caribbean that was awesome. Can't thank you enough Eva for your generosity and grace. We will see you again and Levi says hello!

Perfect, Relaxing Getaway
Kristen S.

My husband and I stayed at the Magic Castle Villa for 3 nights. This place is truly breathtaking and everything we could have wanted and more. It's private, spacious and well equipped with everything you need. We loved everything about it. Going to sleep listening to the waves and enjoying the constant breeze was so relaxing. It's just a short drive to a wonderful, beautiful beach that we had to ourselves each time we went. It also had great snorkeling which we really enjoyed. Eva is such a wonderful, kind person, and we truly enjoyed getting to know her and Rocket (her lovely dog!). She is extremely helpful, but not at all intrusive. Eva has thought of everything - all the details really make the place special. Our only regret was not being able to stay there longer. It was the perfect place for a romantic anniversary vacation.

Another perfect stay
Helena G.

This was my 2nd visit to the Magic Castle and it was just like the first visit....Perfect. The location is beautiful overlooking Little Bay, very private and the house is VERY well equiped with everything you would need from bathroom essentials to kitchen applicances, spices, utensils, beach towels, cooler, snorkel equipment and more. We found ourselves enjoying our evening meals overlooking the caribbean and then relaxing in the hot tub along with a beautiful nights sleep. The hillside location of this home provides constant tradewinds. Eva is available should you have any questions, she is a very gracious host who holds a special place in our hearts. We have already booked our next vacation to return. This home has something very special about it, the name says it all. Truly Magical!!
