About the Property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Island Dream has a spectacular panoramic view from each room,4 decks, pool, on its cozy 1/2 acre among palms, tropical flowers and tropical fruit trees. A rock garden merging with native plants on a hillside surrounds one side of the pool and the other looks out to the sea as does the new partial shade deck..

Each bedroom has a private balcony and a bathroom opens on an outdoor shower within flower-covered rocks. There are no other houses on its road or behind it. The three beautiful, secluded beaches are a short walk away and have fantastic snorkeling. One beach has chairs and umbrellas; the other is pristine.
A very short walk brings you to a community center with tennis court,bocce ball court, restaurant and a large pool with poolside bar,plantation ruins for picnics and a small,lovely spa.Our guests may use all facilities at this center.

Although the kitchen is small, all our guests marvel at how well-stocked it is and easy to work in. I love to cook and leave herbs and spices for all to use. The art is high quality & tasteful.We keep many books on fish, plants, BVI history, good novels as well as a special section of Caribbean cookbooks.

Island Dream is at Nail Bay with three relatively unvisited gorgeous equidistant beaches (5 minute walk) with the best snorkeling in the BVI. Guests can use tennis and large pool ( as well as our own one) at Nail Bay Resort which also has garden, picnic tables among plantation ruins as well as delicious Sugar Cane restaurant and poolside bar. This area has few houses and a country feel though house is air-conditioned, has internet access, large DVD collection, lovely art, fruit & palm trees, rock garden and abundance of amenities, cooking tools and grill.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We are an active retired couple with 3 adult children, ages 36-47 . Our past careers were in clinical psychology ,accounting and theater . Rob has become a jock in his older age, entering ski race contests and playing tennis as much as possible. Mary paints at least one water color a week and walks an hour every day (sometimes with weights on her ankles!) and is writing a novel abut a pretend island near here in the 1790s. Mary volunteers in VG the 6 mos. we live here each year, teaching and being a mental health adviser. We are also avid readers and hikers. We love to visit our friends and relative and be hosts to them in either Sunriver or Virgin Gorda. We are grateful for our good health , loving family and friends and the fulfilling and enjoyable life we lead.

Why the Owner Chose Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands:
Island Dream has a spectacular panoramic view from each room on its cozy 1/2 acre among palms and tropical flowers and fruits trees, mango, banana,lime etc. A rock garden with a half hidden deck merging with native plants on a hillside surrounds one side of the pool and the other looks out to the sea. Each bedroom has a private balcony and each bathroom opens on an outdoor shower within flower-covered rocks. No other houses on its road or very close. The three beautiful, secluded beaches are a short walk away and have fantastic snorkeling. One beach has chairs and umbrellas; the others are pristine. A very short walk brings you to a community center with tennis court,bocce ball court, restaurant and a large pool with poolside bar,plantation ruins for picnics and a small,lovely spa. Although the kitchen is small, all our guests marvel at how well-stocked it is and easy to work in. I love to cook and leave herbs and spices for all to use. The art is tasteful and we keep many books on fish, plants, BVI history, good novels as well as a special section of Caribbean cookbooks.We have wi-fi and a dvd library. Our wonderful managers are always available for help . Maid and pool service are frequent. We live here for 6 months a year which is one reason the house is so well stocked and in good condition.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I think that we and our guests love the privacy, the view seen from every room, each room having big glass doors and windows facing all possible views (incl. sunsets.) People love the pool which is so near the house that it is easy to dip and swim all day. Since we live here 6 mos. A year, the house has the feel of a real home -one with good art ,taste, comforts and useful items not found in villas that are used mainly a week or so at a time.
