Beyond the islands of Tortola and St John, that you can see, lies an archipelago of islands that stretch east for 23 miles to Virgin Gorda. There is a famous trip you take that to explore them that leaves from Sapphire Beach Marina, a short walk away .You can also stroll over there to take a day snorkel sail to St John; a romantic sunset dinner sail or a fishing trip.
After a dip in the salt water pool, enjoy a relaxing freshwater shower in your new exotic bathroom. The sunken shower area has been renovated with italian tile threaded through with sea green glass. We have the advantage of a large water heater to allow for long showers if you like them.
Cook at home if you wish or have a barbecue, or head over to Red Hook to eat or have fun at almost 20 bars and restaurants. Ask our gardener, Paul about the exotic tropical plants. Joseph will clean your pool twice a week. If you don't feel like cooking or going out then try our excellent new restaurant, Vicar's Bar and Grill, owned by an ex chef de partie from the Ritz Carlton. He specializes in local cuisine.
We provide everything you need to go to the beach: cooler; nice beach towels and beach chairs. Put them in your car if you have one. We offer transportation options to make your transfer easier. We are on call if you need help and and offer a free concierge service tailored to your preferences.
Turn left out of your garden gate and walk to Sapphire and Pelican Beach on flat land in 5 minutes without having to cross a road.
Turn right out of the front and walk for a little longer to reach Lindquist Beach in the national park. Many think this is the prettiest, unspoiled beach on the island. Here you can sit undisturbed under the shade of a sea grape tree, with only jungle behind you and relax with a refreshing beer or tropical drink.
Try your hand at deep fishing,out of the marina, bring your catch home and BBQ them at home. We are about the only spot on the east end where you can have a BBQ in your garden.
The only hourly ferry shuttle runs from Red Hook to Cruz Bay so that you can go over to St. John for dinner or to listen to music. There is also a drive-on/drive-off ferry (the barge) so that you can drive around the island of St John. There is also the only hourly 'people ferry', on the hour, between the islands, so make it a two island vacation.
You will want to visit St. John at least twice because there are more world class beaches there than you can visit in one day.
This is the perfect location for anyone who does not want to drive. It's $1 to Red Hook on the dollar bus which makes a clockwise circle around the east end of the island so you can ride the bus to the shopping mall and Plaza Extra Supermarket or the Food Center for groceries.
You can easily walk to the beaches. There are no hills and steps here. You are only 5 minutes by bus from Red Hook and the new ferry terminal so you can take trips to St. John and explore the BVI. This is one of the few locations on island near beaches where you can save if you choose not to rent a car.
You are given personal treatment here. The owner actually lives on the island and we can meet you, if you wish, to give you an orientation. We provide a free concierge service to help you see and do more for less. Simply text of call us at any time for our best local's advice.

Because sometimes you don't want to get dressed up to go our in public or have to talk to anybody……...
It's small, unpretentious and friendly. Get to know us, the garden Paul, who can tell you all about the plants and Tina in her pub Cheers Mate who can cook pretty much anything you would like if it's in stock. Get to know the locals.
