About Michael

We chose our home for its total Privacy and Unparalleled View, in what has to be one of the world's most beautiful settings.

To me, the utmost in luxury is quiet and simplicity. The ability to "Rest and Recharge" is what we offer guests...See some of their comments here in the Guest Book Below:

We hope to welcome you to Villa Alizes, where you can experience the true Dolce Far yourself, family and friends.

Why Michael chose Virgin Gorda

It's spectacular view, known throughout the island. The mid-century ambiance of the architecture of the house. The "off-the grid" vibe and low-key, relaxing simplicity of the house. And the view!

What makes this villa unique

Our back-up generator.....And the view!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived after 5 days on Anegada to this most beautiful villa. We have absolutely loved staying here - watching the boats, the shooting stars, sunrise & sunset. What more could anyone ask for? The birds, the land crabs, goats and chickens have kept us well amused.



I think we have managed to explore much of the island although I'm sure we have left more for another visit. Yes, we will be back. Nothing could beat eating here on the wraparound terrace with the stunning view.



Thank you for providing us with a wonderful home to enjoy, relax and recharge our batteries. Thanks to to Tiina - it was lovely having someone meet us and be at the other end of the phone for our questions. And thank you to Angela for making the house look and feel great again!

Excellent host, very good place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Best owner interaction ever. We do a lot of VRBO but this was the most helpful ever. Villa is in very good shape. Fantastic view. The only reason it isn't 5 stars is there is no AC. Now Michael was very upfront about this before we even made the reservation but I think it would bother other people. It was hot but it was fine for us. Lots of ceiling fans. Also the entrance has a lot of steep steps. Once again, we were made aware of this before we decided to stay-but might be a problem for some.

Owner's Response: Jim, Thank you so much for this review, it was my pleasure and we were delighted that you enjoyed what our house has to offer! I like to understand why our guests have chosen Virgin Gorda and what they would enjoy doing. I’m glad to hear my suggestions for “Our Small Town in Paradise” were helpful (And I couldn’t do it without my great property manager and housekeeper on-site.) I appreciate you pointing out what makes us different than other villas: Like our neighboring Cooper Island Resort, we try to do our best to reduce our impact on the environment, and have chosen not to have A/C. In fact, our house was designed to be at just the right angle to capture the breezes from the North Sound. (Les Alizés.) The original owner was a sailor and chose the loveliest “perch” on Leverick Bay, and we found that we can’t improve upon his original design (Winter months can be so “blow-y” that you need extra blankets!) It was one of our repeating winter guests who encouraged us to host guests from May to August. We were concerned at first for the reasons you cited, and discovered our summer guests are fit, athletic folks who enjoy the house’s “indoor/outdoor” feeling (and who are mostly snorkeling or windsurfing during the day) and our commitment to sustainable tourism in the BVI. And to have, what many consider the best view on Virgin Gorda, the house was designed as a cantilever, with 35 steps down from parking, unfortunately we’re not suitable for children under 10 or those with mobility issues.(Although we recently had a guest who had had a serious heart incident last year - he told us that he found our steps were a lot, but they were his best physical therapy!) Thank you again Jim for your review. Based on your comments, I’ve adjusted our listing to make these two points more apparent. I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay - I hope that you both visit us again!

Perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

Can't believe I've been home for a little over a week, I miss my Virgin Gorda home away from home so much. This was our second time staying here and we had the pleasure of sharing this with our son and daughter-in-law this time, they too fell in love with the Villa Alizes. You feel at home the moment you step into the Villa, so clean and views that are just amazing. I can't say enough how wonderful Michael and Tiina are, they really go the extra mile to ensure a perfect vacation. The beauty of the home and the surroundings are second to none. So much to do on the beautiful island, but would also be fine just staying at the Villa. Thank you again Michael, you are the Best!!! Till next time......

Villa Alizes & Virgin Gorda is a bit of heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned to NJ/NY after a wonderful stay at Villa Alizes. The Villa, location and views were absolutely stunning. From the walk down stone steps to the landing area surrounded by coral and conch shells, to the amazing views from the deck, main living area and bedrooms, Villa Alizes was simply perfection! The Villa is situated just above Leverick Bay Resort. The Resort, which is either a short walk or drive away, welcomes local visitors and was perfect for a casual meal after a long day out and around. We rented a car and visited the Baths, Devil's Bay, Savannah Bay, Long Bay, Bitter End Yacht Club, Little Leverick Bay (favorite morning swim) and much more. We also booked a full-day snorkel trip with Elaine at B&B Charters at Leverick Bay Resort that was fantastic. Although we cherished our down time in the Villa, we were thrilled to have had the convenience and accessibility of the Resort for Happy Hour, groceries & liquor store. Both the owner, Michael and manager, Tina were incredibly helpful and accommodating. Thank you for a such a memorable vacation!

over the top!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our stay at Villa Alizes for a week.

The Villa is absolutely beautiful! A big central area to stretch out in with a bedroom off each side. It has a deck wrapping all the way around the side of the Villa that faces the bay.

The view is absolutely incredible from any where on the deck, the central room, and the bedrooms! The ocean has the most amazing colors! All the sail boats sailing around where fun to watch too.

We had rented a car for our stay., Tina the manager of the property met us and led us to the Villa. It was spotless! Tina then led us to one of the local grocery stores (which was down in Spanish town about 20 minutes away), and waited while we shopped for food. She then led us back up north to the Villa!

My wife and I were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary. My wife said our trip was like a second honeymoon, and I agree!!!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Sid, Thank you for such a lovely review - It was so wonderful to have you as guests and I am also so touched that you chose our house to celebrate such a special wedding anniversary! When we discovered our house, we were transported by the views and its setting and it gives us such pleasure to share it with lovely guests such as you both. And I will certainly share your kind observations with Tiina and our housekeeper, who give such a personal face to our home and to the Island. I hope that your travels will bring you back to Virgin Gorda and that we can host you again! Fondly, Michael

Stunning views and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

The only thing more beautiful than Villa Alizes was the view we woke up to every morning! It was an amazing getaway after two weeks sailing the BVI. We couldn't have been happier about choosing this villa to get our land-legs back in shape. The setting, the furnishings, the ambiance made us feel even more in tune with nature.

The villa itself is situated a short distance above Leverick Bay - walkable distance to the resort for those in decent shape. While we spent a good portion of each day just enjoying our surroundings at "home," we did take advantage of several of the resort's amenities including their standup paddleboards, hobie cats and swimming pool. A car isn't necessary but recommended to visit the Baths, Gorda Peak, the Coppermine and Spanishtown. And don't forget to stop at Hog Heaven for their world-famous BBQ on the way back!

We had the added pleasure of watching all the activity at Mosquito Island during the former first family's visit with Richard Branson. In fact, we even spied (through our binoculars) Barack and Michelle practice sailing a hobie cat in North Sound!

Spectacular house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for two couples to have a memorable vacation. It's far enough removed from any hustle and bustle to relax but close enough to find it if you want. The north sound of Virgin Gorda has anything you would want: diving, sailing, great food, bars, hikes, amazing views, and great weather. The owners and manager went the extra mile to make sure we received great service. I could not recommend this property enough, A++++
