This fully air conditioned 3-bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home has 2400 sq./ft of living space and 1600 sq/ft of patios and terraces. Located within the Nailbay resort community, Boulder Crest is a 5-minutes walk to a long stretch of sandy white beaches. With its hillside location and panoramic west facing views Boulder Crest offers guests the ultimate Caribbean experience.

Guests of Boulder Crest will enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the Sir Francis Drake Channel, numerous adjacent islands, and miles of pristine beaches stretching from Little Dix Bay to Mountain Point. The villa is designed to exist harmoniously with the natural landscape of Virgin Gorda. Both the inside and outside are comfortably furnished to reflect the island's laid-back lifestyle.

The main pavilion (living room/kitchen/dining room) features a cathedral ceiling and floor to ceiling glass doors that maximize the villa’s stunning views. The modern and well equipped kitchen has custom cabinetry, Corian countertops, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, oven, microwave, 4 burner electric glass cook-top stove, coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, toaster, cookware, utensils and service for up to eight people. The kitchen’s island is a great spot for entertaining and has seating for 6. There is also an indoor dining table suitable for those nights when you choose not to dine under the stars.

The living area is comfortably furnished with a variety of seating options. A 46” flat screen tv is equipped with Direct TV with hundreds of channels to choose from. There is also a dvd player and a Bose audio system for cds and ipods.

From the main pavilion an outdoor staircase leads to the private master bedroom suite. The master bedroom features panoramic ocean views and is built around a large boulder which serves as a natural stone headboard for the king sized bed. Highlights of the master bedroom include a private outdoor shower with a view of Long Bay and a private terrace built around a large tree. The master bedroom’s patio is an ideal spot for cocktails while enjoying the sunset. Additional comforts of home include; air conditioning, ceiling fan, phone with intercom, WIFI, satellite TV, ipod docking station, dvd, hotel-style safe, hair dryer, iron, and ironing board.

Housed in the villa’s third-pavilion, two additional bedrooms overlook the main terrace and pool. Both guest bedrooms have private entrances and ensuite bathrooms with outdoor showers. These bedrooms are similarly equipped with air conditioning, ceiling fans, satellite tv, hair dryers, and phones with intercoms. One of the guest bedrooms has 2-twin beds. These can be left as two beds or combined to form a king sized bed. The second guest bedroom has a king sized bed.

The large main terrace wraps around the villa’s main pavilion and is decorated with patio umbrellas and chaise lounges. There is also a small table and chairs that is a great spot for breakfast with a view. This poolside setting is a favorite location for enjoying Virgin Gorda's fiery sunsets with cocktails and hors d'oevres.

Last but not least you can complete a day of fun activities with dinner in the villa’s outdoor dining pavilion and grilling porch. Equipped with a large Weber bbq and a teak dining table this magical spot is perfect for family gatherings or a romantic dinner under Caribbean stars.

About Christi Maddox, Villas Virgin Gorda

Owners: Doug and Margit Olson, Bucks County Pennsylvania, USA

Property Manager: Villas Virgin Gorda (Christi Maddox, Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda)

Christi Maddox, Villas Virgin Gorda purchased this villa in 1999

Why Christi Maddox, Villas Virgin Gorda chose Virgin Gorda

Welcome to our home in paradise. We fell in love with these islands and their people over fifteen years ago. When we decided to build a house on Virgin Gorda, we picked this site because of the landscape and the views to the southwest as well as to the northwest. When we designed Boulder Crest Villa we wanted it to fit naturally into the existing landscape so as to become a part of the island, not to change it. Our contractor was not happy about building around the trees and boulders, but when he was finished he understood. We hope you do also.

In deciding to share our home with others, we realized that, since we could not be here as often as we would like (we both have jobs), Boulder Crest Villa would be much better off occupied and enjoyed rather than sitting empty and alone. So again, welcome.

What makes this villa unique

We hope your stay is enjoyable and relaxing so to that end we highly recommend that you complete your days activities 30 minutes before sundown, fix yourself a drink and sit out on one of the terraces to watch the light show of some of the most beautiful sunsets we have every experienced – they’re different every night. If you are at the Villa during the part of the summer season when the sun sets over water instead of the islands, watch carefully just as the sun disappears below the water. There is a very brief but brilliant green flash at the junction of the water and the disappearing sun. We’ve only caught it once but it’s worth trying (the “green flash” is often spoken about as if it were a myth, but we both saw it last year at the same time so no myth).

Excellent Views - Scenic, Great Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay. This is our 3rd visit to VG and as usual, Irma was very helpful and met us at the ferry and made our stay special. The house had spectacular views, and the snorkeling was great just below the house. Be ready to climb some stairs. We would definitely go back again, the house was beautiful. The pool was very relaxing at the end of the day.

Great management, beautifully landscaped

  • 4 of 5

Boulder Crest is located in Nail Bay which is midway between Spanish Town and the North End. That makes it very convenient to get around. The house is set up in pods, so if you're traveling with older children or friends and you each want privacy it's good for that too. Unfortunately we arrived after a lot of rains, and the Mosquitos were a big problem. Sprays were supplied which was nice, but outdoor showers weren't as fun as they normally can be, and we didn't use the pool area and outdoor areas as much as we would have liked. The house is very well landscaped, large trees and plants. There were a few issues which the management company, Howard and Irma resolved very quickly. We've rented other properties on other islands, service can often be slooow, but these two had people fix things rapidly. Lovely views, very very quiet, nice selection of water stuff too it seemed. Big kitchen area, nice welcome basket, pool area gets quite a lot of afternoon sun. Lots of books, always a plus! We had chicken visitors and even goats which was amusing. There is a path to one of the local beaches, but with the skeeters being an issue we chose not to explore it. Excellent location, easy to get to hog heaven or the nail bay restaurant or Spanish town.

Ideal Paradise Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful villa situated up on a hill with gorgeous views of the ocean and trees below. The property manager, Howard and his wife, Irma were both very helpful and thoughtful. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you might need to make meals at home. It is very secluded. We could not see other people from the house. It is a quick walk down to the beach and the house even has snorkeling gear in a variety of sizes. The island itself is beautiful. We found the people to be extremely friendly, and the beaches and land are kept clean. Outside the house, we saw a variety of wildlife friends-- lizards, hermit crabs, and birds. Peek inside before opening the porch umbrella. There was a tree frog hanging out inside and we might have smushed the little guy if we didn't happen to look beforehand. The west facing direction is lovely. Every night we watched the sunset from the porch with the sound of birds and frogs chirping in the woods. Every morning, we woke up to the sounds of the crashing of waves and a soft glow from the sun behind us. On our last morning, we saw double rainbows on the horizon. Overall, this place was perfect. We highly recommend it.
