About the Property
Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Gt. Camanoe is a private, completely residential island that has no shops, restaurants or business, just lots of peace and tranquility. After many years of serving as a site for sugar, cotton, and indigo plantations in the 1800's, the island had been uninhabited until about forty five years ago when two small communities of residential, mostly vacation, homes were begun. Some interesting ruins and gravesites still remain from the past.
To start your rental, you will be picked up at Trellis Bay by our local manager, Andy Gordon, who will take you over to Great Camanoe & drive you up to the house. There either he, or our housekeeper, Maline, will show you around the house & answer your questions. You will also have the use of our 4-wheel drive, 4-door Chevy Tracker to get back & forth from the dock to the house, which is about a 10 minute drive. As noted below, the use of our outboard 17' Boston Whale, which you will need to get to and from Great Camanoe, is also provided in the rental fee.
The jetty sits a mere 1 mile away from Trellis Bay and the Terrence B. Lettsome International Airport on Beef Island, easily reached by the 17 ft Boston Whaler with the 70HP outboard motor that belongs to the house. (Boating skills essential.) Stargazer is located in Privateer's Bay, the eastern settlement on the island, which boasts a community building with a library and bathroom near the jetty and community beach. There are several miles of sometimes steep roads and paths that connect you to other houses, beaches, great snorkeling reefs, and the Nature Preserve. Stargazer sits on 4+ acres and is the perfect place for those who crave adventure, seclusion, and luxury.
The 3-bed, 3-bath residence is comprised of 4 structures and has recently undergone a major renovation, including imported teak furniture from Bali, modern appliances, and completely new kitchen and bathrooms. Featuring an open Caribbean Colonial style, stone paths abound and private wooden decks extend from each bedroom and living area. Wonderful indoor/outdoor living spaces with Mexican tiled floors have been created that form the heart of this secluded retreat. The redesigned kitchen opens onto two covered, but open-air and spacious dining areas - one facing east and the other facing west. Loblolly trees and mature vegetation provide shade and resting spots for songbirds and the occasional kestril, while large boulders and orchids bring tranquil beauty to the footpaths.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Why the Owner Chose Other Islands, British Virgin Islands:
When we inherited Stargazer and decided to completely renovate the house in 2008 we fell in love with it for the second time.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We love this spot because we enjoy a relaxed warm-weather rest in a gorgeous hilltop paradise with easy access to beautiful swimming beaches, fantastic snorkeling reefs, most forms of water recreation, and a lively restaurant and shop scene.
