About the property

5 Bedroom, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8 -14)

Tamarind Villa is positioned above Leverick Bay overlooking the beautiful harbor of North Sound. When entering the villa the first thing you think is the pictures just can't do justice to the views. Prickly Pear, Saba Rock, Bitter End, and Moskito are just a few of the islands seen from all different directions of the villa. Yachts of all sizes come and go throughout the day like a parade to watch while sitting on the deck.

An island stone patio and wood deck surround the oval fresh water pool overlooking Mosquito Island owned by Sir Richard Branson. There are pool floats, outdoor refrig, lounge chairs,and shaded areas to relax and unwind.

This beautifully furnished Moroccan-style villa is only a short walk from the beach, restaurants, dive shop, boat rentals, boutiques, spa and grocery at nearby Leverick Bay Resort.

Tamarind's Moroccan-style arches frame the North Sound on large covered patios bordering two sides of the villa. Outdoor dining or just watching the boats go by is a favorite pastime.

The spacious Great Room includes living, dining, and kitchen areas under a natural beamed cathedral ceiling. Cooling trade winds flow throughout the villa, augmented by ceiling fans in every room. Or if you like there is also A/C throughout.

There is a large curved sofa in the living room area. Great for socializing. The room has cable TV, DVD, CD Stereo (w/ iPod hookup) and WIFi..

The Kitchen is defined by a surround bar formed of island stone with granite countertop , includes dishwasher, refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and all the dishes and utensils necessary to prepare the finest dinner and cocktail parties while enjoying views of the pool and the Sound.

The Master Bedroom overlooks North Sound from a private patio and includes a king-size bed, private bath, walk-in closet and dual armoires.

Guest room 1 - Queen bed and its own private patio with views of North Sound, reading chair, dresser, closet and cozy corner desk.

Guest room 2 & 3 are across from the pool and offers more privacy away from the main house. King beds and trundle bed provides 3 separate beds for larger parties, ensuite bathroom with glass block showers and independent air conditioning units in each room. These rooms are opened when there are more then 2 couples.

The 5th Guest room has bunk beds for kids/sailors and a dresser.

The villa also has a washer dryer for your use. All linens are supplied.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Theresa,





Just wanted to say that we had a great time staying at your place and touring Virgin Gorda. The Villa was even better than pictured on the website and the four of us were amazed when we first arrived. Your place had so many amenities - Joan used one of your fin/mask sets for snorkeling and diving because they worked better than the set she brought. Plugging ipods in to the various stereos made it easy for us to enjoy our music, beach towels, coolers, chairs, even a couple of cold Heinekens in the fridge :)





Tina was there to meet us when we arrived and did a wonderful job of making us feel welcome, helping us with shopping, and sharing her wealth of island info.





Our stay coincided with the Leverick Bay Poker Run so we were able to walk down and experience the festivities. We made two trips to Bitter End Yacht Club and also visited Saba Rock. The four of us went diving with Ben from Kilbrides at BEYC. We requested to dive the Rhone and they were happy to take us there. Dive service was outstanding. We drove past Hog Heaven but never ate there, so many other nice restaurants to check out like Mineshaft Cafe and BEYC. Also got to see the Jumbies perform which was a treat.





Many thanks for sharing your place, we hope to return some day!

wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

our stay at tamarind villa was absolutely wonderful. when we arrived, tiina was at the airport to greet us and take us by the store to get supplies. she then took us on to the house and gave us the tour. she was not intrusive at all which we greatly appreciated and she answered the phone immediately and gave great advice when we called her. we have traveled to many islands over the last 15 years and this is the only house that we have stayed in that truly was cooled by the trade winds! I am an A/C gal, and I never once turned it on at tamarind villa. those who know me, know that is saying a lot. my sister and I truly mourned the loss of the feel and sound of that glorious breeze blowing through our rooms at night! the house was also one of the most well stocked houses we have stayed in during our travels. the owners have taken great care to make sure you have what you need for beach time, pool time, and so on. the views of leverick bay from the house are just beautiful and we enjoyed watching the sail boats and yachts come in and out of the bay each morning and evening. it was also so fun that we could hear and enjoy the music and fun going on down at jumbies some nights. we went down to jumbies one evening and it happened that the travel channel was there filming a show about Michael beans the singing pirate. what unexpected fun for us!! we also loved watching the beautiful hummingbirds, bananaquits and the pearly-eyed thrashers that stayed around the house and pool. we were amazed when we put out sugar water as suggested by the owners. the bananaquits just flocked to it. so fun to watch and to video! this was our second visit to beautiful virgin gorda and I don't know if we will get back there again as we have so much more to see and explore, but if we were to go back...we would definitely stay at tamarind villa. thank you so much for the use of your wonderful home!

We'll be back

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, our stay here was perfect. Theresa met us at the ferry and showed us to the house. The house is well appointed and stocked with everything one would need for an island vacation. The views are fantastic, the pool was refreshing, and the trade winds made it never necessary to use the AC. I was worried at first about staying on the North Sound, but the island being so small, the drive is part of the overall charm. Being right above Leverick Bay was also a great resource. A store with a great selection of food and drink choices, 2 restaurants, outdoor bar, and a free water taxi to Saba Rock.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying at the villa. When you come back you will have to try some of the other free ferries to other parts for North Sound. The Bitter End Yacht Club has a wonderful Sunday brunch with bottomless Mimosa's, The YCCS yacht club is now open to the public and has a Thursday night BBQ that is over the top. Biras Creek great hiking trails - try the one to Lovers Leap then go have cocktails at the beach bar where the palapa's have cocktail flags you can raise to signal its time for a refill.

Tamarind Villa review

  • 5 of 5

This villa was the nicest place that we ever stayed! The view was spectacular from almost any room in the house. The wrap around patio was awesome. The pictures on the website do not do this place justice. It was well stocked and everything was in great working order. It was very nicely decorated. The owners were very responsive to our inquiries. Tiina, the property manager, was extremely helpful to us upon arrival. I would recommend this villa to everyone.

Incredible Views, Amenities and Spacious Living Area!

  • 4 of 5

Our group of four friends spent five wonderful days staying at Tamarind Villa, enjoying the view over Leverick Bay each morning, sunning by the pool in the afternoons and sitting in the spacious living room during evenings after dinner. There was plenty of room for all of us and its a great house to enjoy; whether you plan to spend a lot of time inside the house, or exploring the island, it's a wonderful place to stay. In addition, it is very conveniently located near Leverick Bay, which features a grocery store and two amazing restaurants which feature dancing and entertainment during the season.

A pretty good stay at Tamirand Villa.

  • 3 of 5

For the most part our stay at Tamirand Villa was good. The view is excellent, the house is well stocked, and clean. Some things, like the sofa and deck chairs are in need of attention, but for the price, it is good.

A couple of things to be aware of though...the live in caretaker is the owner of the house. I got the impression that they stay there for the winter months. One day one of the owners came up to the upper floor to water some plants. She had called first but we had not answered the phone. She made a comment about my mother-in-laws choice of breakfast foods, and while this is not a huge deal, our feeling of privacy was blown. When you are at the pool, you will see them coming in and out of the driveway. This is something you should know before you rent the house.

My other issue with the house is the road noise. The side of the house that the two main bedrooms face is close to the road, which is quite steep. Every morning (and I mean EVERY morning) at about 6am there are trucks going by. We figured it must be some kind of delivery truck going to the Leverick Bay Resort, and because of the steep road they are in low gear and make alot of noise. I am not a light sleeper, but this woke all four of us up every single morning.

Again, overall, the house is good. We loved the pool, the house is comfortable, and we had a good time.

We found a new "home"!

  • 5 of 5

Really can't add much to the other glowing reviews except to say that we have found a "new home" on Virgin Gorda in Tamarind Villa. Absolutely incredible stay this June and we've already booked for next year. Every attention to detail by Jim & Theresa. Can't wait for 2014.

Virgin Gorda is second most populated island in the British Virgin Islands with a population of approx 3,300. The island is long and narrow (9.9 miles long, 1.8 miles wide at it's widest part = 8.1 square miles). Between 1680 and 1743 the island was the capitol of the British Virgin Islands and at it's peek had a population of over 20,000 people (mostly slaves working the sugar plantations). There are still many Ruins located on the island that make an interesting side trip if you like archeology. Best sites on Virgin Gorda are: Little Fort National Park (Fort Point behind Coco Maya restaurant), Coppermine Point, Long Bay Plantation (steps to nowhere), Nail Bay Windmill, South Sound.
