Oil Nut Bay, dubbed the crown jewel of the British Virgin Islands on the eastern tip of Virgin Gorda, debuts its newest luxury villa available for rent, Poseidon’s Perch Villa, and world-class spa featuring a collection of organic and fair-trade products from The Organic Pharmacy. Accessible only by boat or helicopter, Oil Nut Bay is a pristine and sustainably preserved luxury residential and resort community providing rare villa rental and home ownership opportunities. Spread across 300 acres and embraced by the azure waters of the Caribbean, Oil Nut Bay provides the exclusivity of a private-island lifestyle with the luxury of five-star amenities and services.
Poseidon’s Perch is ideally nestled on a hilltop to embrace gentle sea breezes and expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean, Anegada and Oil Nut Bay. A short drive in a personal electric cart brings guests to the unspoiled white sands of Oil Nut Bay’s secluded beach, the Beach Club and its resort center.
Meticulously built in harmony with nature, Poseidon’s Perch welcomes guests with subdued tropical motifs, natural granite and stone materials with high-rise ceilings and large pocket doors. Poseidon’s Perch is 2,508 square feet with three bedrooms and has the ability to sleep eight. The master bedroom is complete with a plush king bed, walk-in closet, his and hers sinks and an outdoor shower. One guest bedroom features a queen bed and twin bunk beds with an ensuite bathroom, while the second has a king bed and ensuite bathroom with an outdoor shower and soaking tub.
