"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."

"Don't make the same mistake that we made by booking Sea Dream for a week. The reason is simple--a week is not enough time to enjoy all that Virgin Gorda and this villa have to offer. With only a week to enjoy the local beaches and to do some island hopping, we did not have enough time to thoroughly enjoy all the amenities right at our fingertips--the heated salt-water pool and the extensive verandas with panoramic views of Leverick Bay. Fortunately, we did have a chance to briefly enjoy the views as we ate our breakfast before heading off for some adventure. We would especially like to thank Letica who promptly responded to our requests and made our car rental arrangements before we arrrived. Although driving on Virgin Gorda was a challenge, we found that the cost of a car rental was a fraction of what we would have paid for taxi fares. Our two top recommendations--Savannah Bay and the Bitter End Yacht Club that is available by free ferry service from Gun Creek."

"I spent a week at Fat Chance and the accommodations could not have been better! The house is clean, open and airy. Two beautiful outdoor showers (attached to the inside bathrooms) were a unique bonus. Outdoors, there are a number of options for seating ...including a gorgeous patio overlooking the breathtaking island. The house is walking distance to the beach, The Baths and Mad Dog. The owner was incredibly helpful with sightseeing suggestions and all my questions. I can't wait to go back!!"

"We loved our second stay at Bigger Splash! This time we included the two new spouses of our children, and they also loved it. The location near the baths, combined with the 7 magnificent outdoor seating areas, make it the best ever. The pool is delightfully refreshing and nicely situated, while surrounded by boulders and blooming foliage.
The concierge, Debbie, was also extremely helpful in pre-trip information and attending to our daily needs.
We hope that someday our children bring their children to this wonderful place."
