Nail Bay villa description

Villa LaVida is a secluded, luxurious beachfront villa nestled on the western shore of Virgin Gorda. Privacy is paramount, and the sunsets are sublime. Mere steps from the turquoise Caribbean Sea, the sound of crashing waves accents each room in this delightful new property.

Every room faces west with 8'x10' sliding glass doors that provide ocean and beach views as well as breathtaking sunsets. All lower level suites have direct pool access, while upper suites enjoy westerly views and shaded balcony seating.

The villa boasts 25 foot cathedral ceilings, stained concrete floors, coralstone decks and artisanal stonework pathways surrounded by palm trees, bougainvillea, jasmine and frangipani.

A few steps down the artisanal stonework pathways brings you to a virtually private beach where you can enjoy secluded walks or fabulous snorkeling. Kayaks await those wishing to explore the nearby beaches and rock grottoes.

LaVida offers a large, extremely private infinity-edged pool surrounded by expansive decks, hammocks, outdoor seating and a wet bar.

Our on-island concierge will escort you to the villa and then provide a short tour to help get you settled in. They are a phone call away and will be happy to help you with any questions you may have. Let them help you plan everything from dinner reservations to water sport activities!

Additional cots can be brought in for children. One of the larger rooms has a futon that can be used as a bed. We also have cribs available.

We also own and manage Rambutan Villa (VRBO Listing #357635) which is next door to Villa LaVida. Ideal for large groups, looking to rent multiple locations.

Please don't hesitate to contact us to ask about any specials or discounts that we may currently be offering.

                  There is much to see on Virgin Gorda. The Baths are beautiful and a very popular tourist attraction. Kitesurfing is very popular in the BVI and stand up paddle boarding is becoming quite popular as well. The snorkeling and scuba diving is quite spectacular in the BVI. Beautiful sunsets are also a part of the landscape and many people like to head to The Mine Shaft, a local bar / restaurant to watch the sun set as they sip on a tropical concoction.

                   

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About: As a former airline pilot, I've seen much of the world and the beauty of Virgin Gorda tops my list of favorite places. Please don't hesitate to call us with any questions you may have.

                  Why Nail Bay:
                  We bought the land in 2000 because the BVI had the lowest crime rate and the lowest population density in the Caribbean. We came to Virgin Gorda and fell in love with the friendly people and the unhurried lifestyle. At the time, Nail Bay was at the end of a very poor dirt road and electricity was fickle at best. Now the road is paved and electricity is reliable but it still has that wonderful remote feeling and the island feels as safe as it ever did. Another person is a rare sight on the Nail Bay beach, though the two adjacent beaches, Long Bay and Mountain Trunk can see as many as a dozen people on busy days. The snorkeling in front of the house is absolutely excellent and the views are unmatched in the islands.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  We finished construction in 2010, so this villa truly is brand new! Located on a semi-private beach, so it feels very secluded, yet everything from restaurants to the airport is a short 10 - 15 minute drive away. The privacy is incredible. Villa LaVida is part of the Nail Bay community so we or our guests can enjoy all of the resort privileges. The catering / chef service is incredible if one opts to dine in and enjoy the barefoot elegance of LaVida.
