Second Floor

This wonderfully designed compound has breathtaking views. Literally. From its lofty position high on a mountain top, Tingalayo looks down onto the glorious beaches of Long Bay and Smuggler's Cove, the west end of Tortola, Jost Van Dyke and across the turquoise sea to the lush and mountainous US Virgin Islands. Nearly four acres surround this very private oasis and throughout the beautifully landscaped property, which has a fenced garden, a sense of peace and tranquility prevail. Named after the donkey in a popular Caribbean children’s song, Tingalayo was designed for maximum guest privacy with a perfect layout for a family or group of friends. Six buildings, connected by hardwood decks or concrete walkways lined with tropical planting, wrap around the hillside and everywhere you look are the amazing views.

A walkway leads to the main house which has an open living room, kitchen and a deck with chaises longues facing the view. On the right side of the living room is an indoor outdoor dining room and off that are the master bedroom and the media room cottages. On the other side of the main house is a cloud-shaped infinity pool and charming dining lanai surrounded by a coral stone terrace. Nearby is the first guest cottage and at the far end of the garden is the second, which has a spa pool (6 x 6 x 6 deep) that can be heated with a built in bench. Finished a similar style to the main house, this delightful and very private cottage also has an open plan living and kitchen areas. Throughout all buildings are hints of Bali as well as wonderful art pieces from Italian modern to Buddhist temple to Caribbean tropical.

Tingalayo not only offers first rate accommodations but it has some of the best views in the entire region. They’re so endless that on a perfect day you can see Puerto Rico in the distance. Sunsets may be even more spectacular and if you’re really lucky and conditions are just right, you may see the famous “green flash” just as the sun sets below the horizon. At Tingalayo, you will feel like you’re on top of the Caribbean world.
