On the Rocks Villa!! Review inside!

Stayed at On The Rocks in mid June. Cannot say enough good things about it. Below is the review I gave it on the Rentals Page:

My wife and I, along with our 17 year old daughter, 13 year old son, and my daughter's friend just returned from a week stay at On The Rocks villa in Virgin Gorda. Words cannot describe how perfect this home was for our vacation. The Villa is Magnificent!

Unfortunately, we do not get to travel every year like we wish, but have stayed in several villas on St. Barth's as well as St. John. When we do, the one thing I insist on is nice accommodations. On The Rocks, is our favorite villa vacation so far!

Starting with the reservation, which we booked directly with the owner through VRBO, all the way to departure, the service was top notch! This was our first time to Virgin Gorda, so the owner and his property manager were extremely helpful in every aspect of planning our vacation. They recommended restaurants, grocery, activities, etc. so we felt completely at peace from the time we arrived on the island. Then we arrive at the villa itself!

On The Rocks is spectacular inside and out. The design, the furnishings and decor, the view all portray the same theme....Comfortable Elegance! Every detail is covered, exceptional appliances, a fabulous custom built in charcoal grill ( which was perfect for a father's day cookout), a cozy hammock, dreamy bedding, four outdoor showers, a refreshing pool, and the list goes on and on.

The location on the island I found to be unbeatable. 5 minutes one way and you were at the Harbour and town. 3 minutes the other, and you were at The Baths. But most importantly, was a small walk about 100 yards to the most fabulous beach I have been on. Most of the week, our family were the only ones on Little Trunk Bay. The snorkeling among the boulders was awesome. Sitting in the beach chairs watching the sunset with a cold drink in hand, the perfect end to a perfect day. Other islands I visited required a 10 to 15 minute drive to such a beach, but here at On The Rocks, it was a easy short walk. We found ourselves wanting to stay there, rather than drive to the other beaches on Virgin Gorda.

If you desire to stay at a top notch Villa, with quality furnishings and comfort, a perfect location, and exceptional service, then you must try On The Rocks! It will exceed your expectations I guarantee, as it did mine. Please feel free to message me about this Villa and I will be glad to share any info I have.

Its not a question of if we will return, just how quickly!!

Thank you "On The Rocks" for sharing your wonderful home with our family!

Well truth be told I am a Hoya before I am a Dawg. My wife and I are both from Georgia.

Deep Woods Off works well. DEET is not something I prefer to use regularly but it is the only thing that really works. The best thing to keep them off of you is a breeze.

Not a lot of us living in the PNW head to VI with Hawaii a 6 hour flight away but I'm originally from Illinois and proud to call myself a Saluki but they play D2 so who cares. Grad school at Oregon and a 10 year season ticket holder so my money and my loyalty are in Eugene. But I play well with others. Babysister lives in GA and is a GSU grad so I usually cheer for UGA!!!

We took Deep Woods off and it worked fine BUT used DEET after dusk when we got swarmed.
