BVI vacations just got easier
Virgin Gorda International Airport open again

Vacationers traveling on the Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands are happy (and so are we!) to see their arrival options increase with the re-opening of the Virgin Gorda airport.

Closed since January 2010, the airport has undergone the necessary renovations to bring it into compliance with Air Safety Support International policies... and wonderfully, just in time for the holiday and winter seasons.

Read all about it at BVI Platinum News... and we'll be seeing you at the Baths!

St. John's main village of Cruz Bay is so near yet so far away from this secluded ultra-luxurious villa set on a hill above the everyday.  Airy spaciousness abounds at this new entry to our villa portfolio named Isla Vista.  Exclusive furnishings, a gourmet kitchen and trompe l'oeil in the living area give way to halls containing photographs that are charming chronicles of world journeys.  Unique objets-d'art add elegance to an already-splendid property.  Custom mahogany doors guide you from the The pool at Isla Vistainterior and out to a generous pool and deck where you'll enjoy views of the verdant hills and flora of St. John's Virgin Islands National Park, down on to Cruz Bay and beyond the blue waters to the island of St. Thomas in the distance.  Twinkling lights at night enhance the romance and intimacy of this most exceptional villa, Isla Vista!

We really are villa experts
We live in the islands, but it takes much more than that to become an villa rental and management expert.  Our company was established in 1985 by happy accident.  We began renting out homes for sale as a way to defray maintenance, improvement and upkeep costs, and soon creating spectacular Caribbean luxury villa vacations became a way of life. 
We know our villa and island managers personally, and regularly tour our properties so that we have come to know them inside and out! Our amazing support team now spans 6 islands (and one adorable cay).
Over the years, we've developed a soft knowledge base called Planning a Flawless Villa Experience (PDF download) that's been shared countless times.  You may also check out our list of Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQs) to acquaint yourself with villa life. 
See you soon!
