This 5 bedroom, 5 bath villa with 3 separate cottages overlooks the Baths
Recently rebuilt and remodeled after relatively minor damage from Irma, Rockmere resides inside the Valley Trunk community, high upon the rocks that overlook the Baths, Spring Bay National Park, and both Little Valley and Big Valley Trunk Bays. After the remodel, the property now features three separate living areas, each with full baths and kitchens. From all the decks you can see the rocks that create the caves at the Baths and those that adorn the bays and beaches from there to Big Valley. The views extend across Sir Francis Drake Channel to Tortola, St. John and beyond. The property's 2 acres are planted to a wide range of tropical trees and flowering plants. The buildings are built literally on the large granite boulders that make up the geology of this part of Virgin Gorda with some boulders forming parts of the structures and pool. With the elevation of the property above any obstructions on all sides, the trade winds provide a cool breeze most times of the day.
The main house consists of a private bedroom with a california King and separate full bath. The living/dining area is one great room that opens onto a deck with breathtaking views. The living area opens on two walls so that living between the deck areas and the inside areas are seamless when the sliders are open in full.
Gemstone is a separate guest cottage across from the main building and consists of twin beds and a private bath. It is air conditioned as well.
Below the main house is another private suite with a bonus bedroom, full bath, and its own deck. This suite also offers both an indoor and outdoor shower and offers its own private path to the beach. The views from this deck are similar to those above just from a slightly lower elevation. This room is also air conditioned.
The new guest cottage sits on top of large rocks and boasts a large bedroom and a living area with private deck with 180 degree views from the baths to spanish town. The bedroom on this cottage is also air conditioned. This building has been completely remodeled since Irma and has its own full kitchen. This facility is only available for sleeping accommodations for parties of more than 6.
The "caretaker cottage" is not air conditioned but benefits from the strong breezes due to its location facing the trade winds. This studio unit has its own kitchette. This facility is only available for parties of more than 6.

My parents have owned this property for more than 40 years and recently transferred its ownership to my sister and me. We live in the USA and visit Virgin Gorda when my parents are up for the trip from California where they live full time.
Why Tina chose Virgin Gorda
My parents bought this property more than 40 years ago after vacationing in the area for years. They believe, as we do, that this is perhaps the most beautiful beach community in the world. Without a doubt the rock formations make this place exceedingly unique.
What makes this Villa unique
In the morning, we all enjoy a cup of coffee on the deck overlooking the channel and the Baths and watching the different boats come and go from the moorings. Then its time to explore the beaches. You can walk just a few hundred feet to Little Valley and you will probably not see anyone. Stay and snorkel or head South to the Kraal and Spring Bay where if there is a ground sea, the surfing is great, or head North, over some rocks, to Big Valley where you can walk the long beach lined with palms. If you don't want to deal with people, skip the Baths one day and hike over to Devils Bay and Stony Point where you will find cool caves to body surf through or sit and sip a beer. Head back up the hill but stop at the Mad Dog for a refreshing island beverage and a BLT. You might head home for a nap and a book, or get into your car and explore other parts of the island in the afternoon, but head home in time for a shower and the sunset on the deck again as the sun sets behind Tortola. Dine at home and then finish off the evening listening to the coqui frogs chirping you to sleep.

Amazing house and stay on VG
Rockmere is such an amazing property - so much better than the pictures! Very nice furnishings, beautiful view and proximity to multiple beaches can't be beat! It's literally less than a 5 minute walk to Little Trunk and Spring Bay beaches. As part of the Guavaberry management you get access to their beach on Spring Bay with chairs and towels provided. The daily maid service and small commissary were an added and unexpected bonus. As a vacation property owner I was really pleased with everything Rockmere provided. I really can't believe there aren't more reviews for this property. The price is a steal for what you get. We also heard from multiple people that this is the best place to stay on the island. We didn't even rent a car. It's a 10 minute walk to Bucks wholesale and 15 mins to Mermaids, Island Pot, Coco Maya and Treehouse restaurants. 15 minute walk to the Baths. We will be back!!
From the moment we arrived at Rockmere (9 PM) I was surprised beyond expectation. The drive and walkways are sercummed with lighted indegineous plants outlying the pathways to the main living areas. The living quarters are exceptional. This property is premier with all accommodations including access to the best beaches in Virgin Gorda. We especially enjoyed making new, wonderful friends at the nearby resturaunt Mermaides, "the best food in town".
I look forward to visiting again very soon.
This was our first trip to Virgin Gorda. We enjoyed every minute and staying at Rockmere was the highlight. Not only did we have a great sense of privacy and all the comforts of this beautiful home and its surrounding views, the proximity to beaches, the national parks, shopping, restaurants, not to mention the rest of the island, made for magical vacation!
Fabulous place that has everything. Amazing views and privacy. great for couples or families.
absolute heaven on Earth
I have been visiting the British Virgin Islands now for 7 years and have stayed at Cane Garden Bay Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Long Bay, and also on the US side at Sapphire Beach and St John but my most memorable experience was my stay at Rockmere. My ten year old daughter and I had the blessed opportunity to stay at Rockmere in June 2014. It is a Utiopia. The main home is absolutely beautiful, the views breathtaking and the open living and dining room is huge with plenty of room to accommodate large groups. The home is extremely well appointed and nothing was lacking. The furnishings and decor were lovely, stylish but very relaxing. The additional bedrooms are situated on the property down beautifully landscaped paths and offer complete privacy and are also extremely comfortable and well appointed. The diverse flora on the property was a treat to walk through and provides habitat for a wide variety of birds a delight to wake up to in the morning. The pool is lovely and offers a refreshing dip after the beach. The entire property is designed around huge boulders which adds to its atmosphere. There is a child friendly path down to Spring Bay which is a stellar beach on par with the Baths which are also conveniently close but a lot less crowded and just a 5 minute walk. I loved watching my daughter leap off the huge boulder into the clear blue sea and snorkeling. I traveled by myself and felt very safe in this environment. The home is very close to all the wonderful restaurants in Virgin Gorda. The housekeepers were just lovely and so friendly, Sandra was available if I needed anything. I felt like I was in another world at Rockmere a true unique experience. The Guavaberry staff were extremely helpful and very pleasant to deal with. Nobody could be disappointed with a stay at Rockmere and will offer a lifetime memory. I am glad I still have memories of the spectacular sunsets. Highly recommended.
Sandra: thanks for you kind review. hope we see you next year!
A slice of heaven
Rockmere at Little Trunk Bay is a gorgeous property, family owned for over 50 years. The estate is divided into 'areas' for privacy and comfort, with beautiful landscaping to admire as you walk the property. The main house contains the kitchen, dining area, relaxing living room, outside decking (with a 5 star view of the water), and BBQ. The bedrooms are located in petite villas adjacent to the main house; one was down a beautiful path, and the villa itself had it's own deck, kitchenette, outdoor shower, etc..) Each of the villas have an outdoor shower, inviting design, and comfortable beds. Also on the property is another decked area with an art studio, library, a shaded hammock, and dipping pool. The path to the beach is short and foot-friendly, and the beach itself is the most beautiful I have seen in my life; I could have spend days just there. The list goes on and on...The property is very close to The Baths - just a short walk! In the evenings we would either admire the sunset from the decks, or head to town for dinner with friends at Mermaids, or other locations. Any visitor would be delighted with this vacation rental, it exceeded my expectations.
thanks for your kind review
Rockmere is located just a short walk from the Baths and all the beaches on the southwest end of Virgin Gorda. With their unusual massive granite boulders -- hiding hundreds of caves -- this is a beachcombers paradise. You can easily swim or walk to Big Valley, Little Trunk, Kraal, Spring Bay, the Baths, and Devils Bay.
