"Just got home from a weeklong stay at Calypso with two other couples and the depression is already beginning to set in. Thought I'd stave it off by going back to VRBO to relive the experience through the pictures, which don't even begin to do the property justice. You legitimately can't capture the view that this place has with a camera.
We had high expectations going in, and Calypso far exceeded all of them. The house was clearly very well thought out, from the layout of the pool/open kitchen/patio which afford absolutely stunning views of Crooks Bay and the Jerusalem Islands, to the finer details like the teak furniture, manual mahogany blinds, and luxurious bedding. There is simply nothing to not rave about. While we loved every minute we spent exploring the breathtaking islands, we equally loved our relaxing time at home where we were comfortably able to lounge, swim, read, grill and catch up with friends.
Irma was a great host - she picked us up at the airport with our rental car waiting and even stocked the fridge with beer and water. She made it clear that she was available at anytime to answer any questions or problems, and the one or two times we called her, she answered on the first ring. She even gave us a heads up the night before we left that Sunshine Air (or as the locals call it, "Sometimes Air") had changed our departure time the next morning - we wouldn't have known otherwise.
As a side note, yes, the property has scorpions, the same way that our house has spiders - they are tiny, rarely seen and completely harmless. It's Virgin Gorda, scorpions live there. I don't go to Maine and complain about the moose.
We'll definitely be going back."

"It is pretty tough to say anymore about the Villa that hasn't already been said in other reviews. Also, as a previous review stated, on the selfish side, it would be easy not to say anything at all, in an effort to keep this bit of heaven on earth less known ... but that isn't fair to the owners. From the start and as promised, Mindy (manger/concierge of the house) was at Leverick Bay docks with cool cocktails to greet us and take us back to the villa - Mindy and Art continued to be fantastic hosts for the duration of our stay answering all questions/organizing anything we requested from a day sail to fresh lobster and the couple of small issues that did crop up, Art made sure were resolved immediately. When the group (4 couples) entered and walked around the house the first time, choosing bedrooms etc, it would fair to say my wife and I heard several times, 'the house exceeded expectations' and the bar had been set high. Yes, the pool is larger than anticipated with all 8 of us spending many hours in the pool gazing out over, arguably, one of the top 3 views of the island (my wife and I have been visiting Virgin Gorda since '91). The beach, although not private, seemed private, as we only saw one other couple strolling along the entire time we were there. But it was the little things the owners have thought of; many, many beach towels all rolled up just inside the door to the pool, along with many sets of snorkel gear; wet bar with ice machine and dishwasher, again, just inside the same door; gourmet kitchen; beautiful linens; all the various types of wine/cocktail glasses and of course the building materials used throughout the house which are luxurious yet seamlessly integrate with the surroundings. Already making plans to return March of 2016!!"

"We booked the Cedar House for our 20th wedding anniversary trip. Several years ago we took a cruise and one of the stops was Virgin Gorda. Well, needless to say we had such a great time at the Baths that we said right then and there that we intended on bringing our son to this place. We also intended on discovering more of what this beautiful place had to off. I booked the house because of it's location, views and it came with a vehicle. We were met with the property manager and vehicle at the Ferry site and were taken care of from then on. The house, landscaping, and view exceeded my expectations. We snorkeled right off the beach everywhere we went and it didn't disappoint. Other places you go, you have to take a boat to get to a reef and see amazing things, but Virgin Gorda is not the case. You strap on a mask, flippers and a snorkel and head out to see amazing things! Every night I kicked back on a chase lounge chair outside and watched the stars. The house has a 360 degree view of the entire island. It was truly a feast for the eyes everywhere. The entire house has these louvers from ceiling to floor that when you open you have the most amazing breezes ever. We will be back and next time hopefully renting out both houses."

"Our family of six just returned from 7 nights at The Amateras and we all are suffering with the come home grumpies. This villa meet every expectation we imagined. The views are incredible and from every window in each pavilion, you can see forever. With this view does come some stairs! Thelma took good care of us with a mid-week towel change and a quick clean up. The pool was just the right tempature and the perfect stop after a long day at the beach! Didn't get to see Elvis, but plenty of lizards kept us entertained and would defiantly come inside. Each day we went to new beaches and all of them very close. Great location for the villa. Enjoy and hope I get to return."
