Property description

Grape Tree, previously called Fat Chance Villa, is a 2-bedroom house ideally located close to the best beaches on Virgin Gorda. The house is in an exclusive residential neighborhood just a few minutes walk to The Baths and only a few minutes more to Spring Bay. At Grape Tree you are also just minutes by car from a dozen restaurants, the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor, and most of the island’s shopping.

Grape Tree is situated on a unique multi-acre property surrounded by giant boulders and tropical vegetation. The rock formations specific to this part of Virgin Gorda make this villa’s setting a truly unique Caribbean experience.

Grape Tree’s bedrooms both feature private baths with outdoor showers. To maximize the flexibility in sleeping arrangements, both bedrooms feature (2) twin-sized mattresses that can be separated or joined together to form a king-sized bed. One of the bedrooms also features a built-in bunk bed that is suitable for children up to 7 years of age. While the house typically sleeps a maximum of 4 people we do make exceptions for larger groups with young children.

Grape Tree features numerous options for enjoying the property’s outdoor spaces. Both of Grape Tree’s bedrooms have french doors that provide direct access to a sitting porch. The rear of the house has an extensive patio that has numerous seating options. The patio also has a gas bbq and a shaded dining table. Lastly, there is an elevated wooden deck located at the rear of the property. From this elevated vantage point guests have expansive views of the surrounding area.

Down the road from Grape Tree, visitors will find Mad Dog’s Beach Bar – a daytime only establishment and home to the best Pina Colada in the BVI. Just past Mad Dog’s guests have easy access to the Top Of The Baths restaurant and it’s public pool and bar.

Grape Tree has cable television, wi-fi Internet, and an ipod dock for playing music. Its reasonable rates and desirable location make Grape Tree an ideal choice for a memorable Virgin Gorda vacation.

ROCK CLIMBING & BOULDERING

Virgin Gorda is best known for the collection of massive granite boulders on its southern peninsula at an area called The Baths. These boulders are the result of ancient volcanic eruptions that pushed these giant boulders up to the earth’s surface. The boulders range in size from just few feet to 60 feet tall.

At The Baths, the boulders make for some incredible snorkeling and offer unlimited opportunities for fun. There are caves to swim in, arches to climb, ledges to jump off, and narrow passages to walk, wade, or swim through.

For rock climbers, the rock formations found in this area offer a Bouldering paradise. Grape Tree Villa is a few minutes walk from The Baths and the house sits amongst a giant boulder field. The property is filled with limitless climbing opportunities. Grape Tree Villa is the perfect destination for climbers looking to make the most of their time on Virgin Gorda!

* Grape Tree is managed by Villas Virgin Gorda.

** Villas Virgin Gorda has a climbing pad that we are happy to lend you.
