GREETINGS FROM POST HURRICANES IRMA AND MARIA. The beaches are still beautiful though may be as deserted as decades ago due to lack of accommodations. Virgin Gorda's residents are as vibrant as ever and happy to be alive following the worst storm in living memory. Indeed, everyone feels blessed. The most popular restaurants have reopened.
Crosswinds Villa is now a two bedroom villa. The garden level is occupied by the owners as was the case for decades until a few years ago. Somehow Crosswinds withstood the storm to an inexplicable degree. You will be most warmly welcomed.
On land littered with elephantine boulders, rustling palm trees, and glorious gardens, Crosswinds Villa is a fully furnished, three bedroom escape just a four-minute walk from the beach at Spring Bay. With daily maid service, all you need do is relax and enjoy the views of Sir Francis Drake Channel from the 1,000 Sq. foot deck, or bathe in crystal blue-green water at the white sand beaches of Spring Bay, Spring Bay National Park, Little Trunk Bay, Valley Trunk Bay, The Baths and Devil's Bay.....all within walking or snorkeling distance.
The 1,000 Sq. ft. deck is Caribbean living at its best. Partially covered, affording lots of sun and shade places, the west-facing deck is furnished with living room furniture, dining table for 6-10, a large gas grill, chaise lounges, rocking chairs and a spacious hammock. It is all surrounded by potted plants, lush gardens, coconut palm trees, panoramic views, spectacular sunsets, and privacy
Built across the prevailing tradewinds, Crosswinds Villa enjoys natural air conditioning regulated by ample louvered windows on all sides of the house. The cathedral ceilings add to an especially airy feeling. The center of the 1,600 square foot villa is an open living/kitchen/dining area, while two of the en-suite bedrooms are located at opposite ends of the house. A 14' opening to the 1,000 square foot deck pleasantly blurs the lines between inside and outside.
The two upstairs bedrooms have screened, louvered windows on 3 sides, allowing these rooms to take full advantage of the Caribbean Tradewinds, rustling palms and balmy nights. Each has its own bathroom with oversize shower, as well as plenty of closet and shelf space. One room has a large table and both modem and WiFi connections for those not able to leave the laptop at home. The other has a chair and ottoman for those who can! The tiled bathrooms are difficult to photograph without knocking a wall down but both are of an appropriate size, have modern fixtures and are as clean as a whistle.
The newly renovated garden level apartment has a queen size bed in a large ensuite bedroom, an open galley kitchen, living and dining area opening to a private patio filled with potted tropical plants, market umbrellas, and privacy. Like the upstairs main living area, this private apartment features louvered windows throughout, cross breezes, cathedral ceilings, ceiling fans and lush tropical manicured gardens outside every window. This area offers privacy and comfort for the multi-generational family, or simply three couples traveling together.
