A traditional gingerbread-style villa with infinity pool overlooking Britannia Bay
Being nestled its own private gardens on the west coast of Mustique Island, this private villa faces the sea and offers unparalleled views over the sea, beaches, and surrounding islands.
Villa Tortuga has a two-level cascading swimming pool right at the centre of the property, offering panoramic views and being perfect for rest and relaxation.
Extensive work has been undertaken in recent years, resulting in a spectacular enhancement of every aspect of Tortuga. The property perfectly combines an Italian design with the Caribbean’s charming style, and features imported Italian fabrics and materials which create a very unique atmosphere.
The living and dining rooms are very generous and have a glamourous style featuring natural ivory and rattan furniture. The high-beamed ceiling maintains the cool ambience whilst the selection of simple local artefacts roots the villa amidst its location perfectly.
Villa Tortuga boasts five en-suite bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-sized four-poster bed and private bathroom, and has been decorated in rich fabrics and carefully chosen individual pieces of furniture.

Mustique is the third largest island in the Grenadines, 20 kilometres south of St Vincent.
Fifty years ago, Mustique Island was bought by Lord Glennconner, and after he offered a plot to Princess Margaret, the island started to receive interest from the media. It soon became a good idea to build a hotel and, later on, to establish a design concept for the island as a whole. The island’s character is very well preserved.
Mustique offers guests the liberty to choose if they want to explore the area or just stay in the comfort of their private villa.
There is so much to do on this island that each guest will be delighted and will decide to return. From going to one of the legendary house parties where guests from different villas can get to know each other, to scuba diving or sailing, horse riding or playing tennis, you can be as active as you wish on this magical island. Or why not be pampered with a spa treatment or relax by the swimming pool?
There are two bodies of water surrounding Mustique: the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The main beach is Macaroni Bay and has lovely waves and a grass area in which to picnic. The other is Lagoon Beach, which is on the quieter Caribbean Sea. It is perfect for very small children and again has the perfect picnic area just in front of the lagoon. There is a path from this beach to secluded Geliceaux Bay, which you can only reach on foot by following the rocky path to the left. There are many other beaches on the island. Picnics are possible on any of the beaches. The best is Lagoon Beach where there is a barbeque that you can use.
Mustique Island is ideal for families, for its privacy and security, so that parents can truly relax while their children are having fun with their new friends or are in the care of a babysitter. This place is amazing for spending time with friends as well, organising lifetime events or spending time with loved ones away from the crowds, where you can reconnect with nature and yourself. Many visitors are so charmed by island life, the unequivocal hospitality, and the friendliness of the staff and the sense of wellbeing this holiday island gives them that they fall under its spell, only to return every year.
