Property description

The Boulder House and our nearby Cedar House (see other listing) each provide a haven for you to enjoy panoramic views in all directions. You will experience these commanding views from the three decks that surround the houses as well as from every room. Each room opens to the decks where you are immersed in lush tropical gardens and views overlooking the Caribbean Sea to the West, the Atlantic Ocean to the East and the surrounding Valley and Gorda Peak. Sailboats dot the horizon in spectacular panoramic views that will take your breath away. The decks are the perfect place to absorb one of the Caribbean's fabulous sunsets as the sun fades behind the mountains of the island-dotted Caribbean.

The house takes it's name from the large boulder around which the house is built. It features two bedrooms, one with a queen bed, and one with two full-size beds. Inside, full-length louvered windows on all exterior walls permit you to fully enjoy the ever-present tropical breezes. Common areas are a combined living and dining area, a full bath and a fully equipped kitchen. The cedar guest house has an additional three bedrooms and two bathrooms if you are traveling with a larger group. We provide gas grills at each house for your barbecue needs. Enjoy preparing a meal at your leisure and dining on your own private deck overlooking the oceans.

We will arrange for our on-island manager to greet you at the airport or ferry dock upon your arrival. You will then be escorted to our property where you will be introduced to our home. Six mornings a week, Shirley will provide limited daily maid service.

The three-acre hilltop setting affords a unique measure of privacy and freedom, yet is only a few minutes from any of the island's best beaches, restaurants, and shops. The hill-top is within walking distance from Spanish Town and the Yacht Harbor however, WE OFFER FREE USE OF OUR VEHICLE which truly opens up the island for your personal enjoyment.

Virgin Gorda has a population of about 3500 and a total area of 21 square kilometers (about 7 miles). It is the second largest of the British Virgin Islands. The island is know for the beauty of its more than 15 white sand beaches - often framed by huge boulders; as well as for it's tranquil turquoise waters. Beaches are wonderfully serene and peaceful and we are happy to advise you how to access the best ones. With the exception of the famous Baths, beaches are rarely crowded. Virgin Gorda's climate is nearly perfect year round and rain is rare. Island locals are gentle and friendly people. The island's marvelous and secluded beaches are one of it's most treasured secrets. Bring your snorkel equipment and submerge yourself in the endless undersea delights that this island's oceans have to offer.

The Boulder House and our nearby Cedar House (see separate listing-VRBO#288911) are owned and operated by the Hunter family in a partnership called Hunter Homes, Ltd. The Hunter family has made Virgin Gorda our second home for more than three decades. We love to share our homes with both newcomers as well as our regular annual visitors. For this reason, we keep our rates quite modest. And, in fairness to our faithful returning guests, we cannot offer further 'special deals'. Our guests know we are...a special deal.

We look forward to sharing our island experience with you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: Hunter Homes Ltd. had its beginnings in 1970 before paved roads and electricity came to Virgin Gorda. Our father/grandfather, David Hunter, purchased our three-acre hilltop and began construction of the Cedar House as his dream retirement home. Construction of the Boulder House followed in 1982, and in 1992, ownership of the houses, and the rental business, passed to his four children. We, his children and grandchildren, have maintained and managed the property ever since and love sharing our second home with others. When you contact us, you are dealing with Us, the owners, not a rental corporation dealing with many properties. We will take the time to answer your questions and be sure we are meeting your vacation needs and expectations. We hope to hear from you. Steve Hunter - Manager(since 1992) and Rental Agent(since 2009)
