The Baths villa description
On land littered with elephantine boulders, rustling palm trees and glorious gardens, Crosswinds Villa is a fully furnished, three bedroom escape just a four minute walk from the beach at Spring Bay. With daily maid service, all you need do is relax and enjoy the views of Sir Francis Drake Channel from the 1,000 Sq. foot deck, or bathe in crystal blue green water at the white sand beaches of Spring Bay, Spring Bay National Park, Little Trunk Bay, Valley Trunk Bay, The Baths and Devil's Bay.....all within walking or snorkeling distance.
The 1,000 Sq. ft. deck is Caribbean living at its best. Partially covered, affording lots of sun and shade places, the west facing deck is furnished with living room furniture, dining table for 6-10, a large gas grill, chaise lounges, rocking chairs and a spacious hammock. It is all surrounded by potted plants, lush gardens, coconut palm trees, panoramic views, spectacular sunsets, and privacy
Built across the prevailing tradewinds, Crosswinds Villa enjoys natural air conditioning regulated by ample louvered windows on all sides of the house. The cathedral ceilings add to an especially airy feeling. The center of the 1,600 square foot villa is an open living/kitchen/dining area, while two of the en suite bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the house. A 14' opening to the 1,000 square foot deck pleasantly blurs the lines between inside and outside.
The two upstairs bedrooms have screened, louvered windows on 3 sides, allowing these rooms to take full advantage of the Caribbean Tradewinds, rustling palms and balmy nights. Each has its own bathroom with oversize shower, as well as plenty of closet and shelf space. One room has a large table and both modem and WiFi connections for those not able to leave the laptop at home. The other has a chair and ottoman for those who can! The tiled bathrooms are difficult to photograph without knocking a wall down but both are of an appropriate size, have modern fixtures and are as clean as a whistle.
The newly renovated garden level apartment has a queen size bed in a large ensuite bedroom, an open galley kitchen, living and dining area opening to a private patio filled with potted tropical plants, market umbrellas and privacy. Like the upstairs main living area, this private apartment features louvered windows through out, cross breezes, cathedral ceilings, ceiling fans and lush tropical manicured gardens outside every window. This area offers privacy and comfort for the multi generational family, or simply three couples traveling together.

- Our enclave of 11 homes is on Spring Bay, situated between Spring Bay National Park and The Baths National Park. Four beaches are within walking distance, the furthest 15minutes. The Baths and Devil's Bay are within easy snorkeling distance. This luxury of easily accessible beaches allows everyone in your party to come and go to the beach as they are ready rather than being dependent on one car. There is also a wealth of beaches and reefs around the island for exploring, too many to see in a week, or maybe even two! You can fill a week's busy schedule all within a three mile radius from daily snorkeling excursions to food shopping to elegant tropical restaurants....moreless

Tough to capture in words the beauty and charm of Crosswinds and its beach. You just need to experience it. The property descriptions and photos are for real. No trick photography required! We're pretty fussy about our rentals and they must be very clean, well appointed and maintained. This one exceeded our expectations. The owners stocked the fridge just as we requested and after a long day of travel everything was there, most importantly the wine to help us unwind and start the vacation right! The owners were incredibly helpful giving us pointers for places to see, restaurants to visit, etc. Unlike some other islands we’ve visited, Virgin Gorda was extremely safe and the people were welcoming and friendly, great food and fabulous sights. Sometimes it was tough to leave the peace and beauty of the private beach though, so we didn’t! And the sunsets from the deck were magical. You won't be disappointed and you’ll want to go back again for sure.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: We split our time between the coast of Rhode Island and Virgin Gorda squeezing in bike trips to Europe and as well as discovering one new destination each year.
Why the Owner Chose The Baths:
We purchased our home in Virgin Gorda after vacationing here for nine consecutive years. Crosswinds was originally a 1600 foot house with a rental of 1,000 sq ft on the second floor with a small wooden deck. We added a 1,000 square foot deck to the second floor with equal amounts of covered and sun filled spaces. The experience of renting led us to create the vacation rental we always wanted, from an over equipped kitchen to upscale furnishings, an outdoor living and dining room, lots of potted tropical plants, a great gas grill and a large Brookstone hammock for reading! We wanted a place we would live in full time, a place that is truly a home and not a place that felt like a business. Add to this, Crosswinds is in a private enclave of 11 homes, the third house back from Spring Bay, adjacent to two national parks, within walking distance of six beaches including The Baths and Devil's Bay. The other beaches are very quiet and nearly private. The beaches are clean, the sand is white and granular, the water is crystal clear and always refreshing and warm. Given the tiny population and stable, well run government your personal safety is unmatched in the Caribbean. So stroll about, to beaches, beach bars, local and tourist restaurants. Live unguarded and have fun!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Everything in Virgin Gorda revolves around the water and beaches. Leave the golf clubs home and forget about gambling. Plan on snorkeling and relaxing by the water all day. There are ample opportunities to explore other islands for the day or half the day on a variety of sail and motor boats. Rent a car and explore a large number of beaches, snorkeling spots, hiking and natural beauty. Then be glad you have Spring Bay to return to.
