“eden is eternal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

haven't been to guavaberry in 20 years but it was SIMPLY perfect the several times we booked with tina way back then, and reading these reviews brings it all back. nick and I have been all over the world, all seven continents, all the earth's major oceans and seas, and have been diving for 40 years ... tina's beach is the very best beach walk-in snorkeling we have ever experienced. just yards offshore, on the further 'rock' to the right, we were caught in a whirling, swirling school of silver sardines and moved magically with their collective mindset for several minutes. we will never forget that. at night we did a nightsnorkel with diving flashlights and saw octopi very, very close to the beach. I imagine things have taken a grander turn since we've been there - and what a shame that might be - but we adored the simplicity, the breezes, the cattle along the roadside, and ... sigh ... tina. I am so glad to hear that she and guavaberry are still thriving in the gorgeous little spring bay sun and shade. my will stipulates scattering my ashes in that area, and we hope to visit again while still alive and kicking (our fins!). blessings, tina ... yours is a unique little piece of heaven.

My husband and I stayed at Guavaberry some years ago. It was fantastic. Tina and her staff were tremendously helpful and the location is superb. Perfectly situated in paradise. We would love to be back every year. The commissary offers great eating options and there are a few good places close by also....just wonderful!

We stayed here for 3 nights in July, Tina could not have been more helpful before and during our stay. We had a few problems paying the deposit and also with the ferries - all of our queries were met with helpful and speedy responses.

We stayed in a one bedroom cottage (Banyan) and felt this was spacious for 2 people. We made good use of the kitchen with help from the on site shop - this was actually one of the best things about Guavaberry, it was stocked with a wide range of food and drink (alcoholic too!). We loved the balcony that our cottage had, there was an amazing view of the ocean and it also had 2 sun lounges and a table and chairs. The cottage was at the top of the hill so we were glad of the car rental! Again Tina organised this and for the car to be delivered to our cottage on the first morning.

Do not hesitate to book this accommodation - Virgin Gorda is a beautiful island and the cottages here are just as beautiful!

We went for our anniversary and had several amazing nights and swam to the Baths at sunrise and had them to ourselves! the Staff here could not have been nicer! I can't wait to get a trip with some friends and come back! Absolutely loved this place.

Room Tip: Each bungalow is built on stilts amongst the boulders. Not sure there is a bad one unless you don...

Guavaberry Spring Bay Vacation Homes is a group of one, two and three bedroom wood houses clustered in a vast space along with magnificent boulders. The latter, along with the tropical landscape, gives the place a lovely setting. There are 21 rooms, situated in a way that all enjoy privacy. We stayed at a one bedroom house called Cedar. From its deck there is beautiful view of Tortola and other close by islands. This side of the island is drier than the rest. VG is an arid island. After 10AM, without A/C (which comes at an additional charge) is not so comfortable to stay in the house. But with beautiful beaches around, who wants to just stay put? The houses are equipped with the basics you will need for a comfortable stay. There is a safe for valuables in the house, as well. They offer daily maid service and a water gallon. Outside each house there is a BBQ set up, they provide beach towels and chairs. They also rent snorkel equipment at a very reasonable rate. In a public room, next to the office, you can find the TV, games, books and Wi-Fi at an extra charge ($2.00 for 30 mins.). Outside there is a veranda with chairs, telephone for local and international calls and an additional table for Laptop. On the other side of the office there a small commissary where you can obtain snacks, drinks, cookies and other items saving you a trip to the grocery store. It runs strictly by the “honour system”. Each house has an assigned tablet where you write down the items you have taken. You’ll pay for them at the end of your stay. The same system applies for the Wi-Fi. You log down your usage time and will be added to your bill. It is so refreshing to have this still in the Caribbean; honor and trust to go by. The houses are very well maintained. They are kept clean. The grounds are also very well kept in spite of the arid soil and hot dry summer. Pathways are illuminated with solar lights.
The shower and hot water were a bit sketchy. They only provide soap bars; no other toiletries like shampoo, conditioner and/ or body lotion. We could not find “Vape” refill tablets for mosquitoes or any other type of repellent. There are gaps in some screens and door which allow mosquitoes to get in. Besides, there is no screen on the front door, which allows them to gain access when you come into the house. The main road divides the property with houses on both sides. Even the houses by the beach are not on the beach. Access to the beach is at walking distance. This was unexpected, but not a problem. We drove to the beach. If you don’t have a car, it could pose a problem to carry a cooler, snorkeling gear and other items to the beach. It would be a great addition to the property if they had a common swimming. We recommend Guavaberry Spring Bay Vacation Homes, to independent travelers, who like space and comfort in a natural Caribbean setting, looking to interact with Nature, in a peaceful and quite environment.

Ae were originally booked to stay at Casa Luna at Guavaberry Spring Villas, but, we were upgraded to the Casa Rosalta due to some construction. What a fabulous place. We had our own swimming pool, multiple decks and separate sleeping quarters along with a full kitchen. The staff were wonderful and they took great care of us. The place was well stocked and very clean. A little leary of outdoor showers, but in fact they are very secluded and allow for privacy. We were a short walk to Spring Bay, the best beach on the island. The Baths are close, which are fantastic! Virgin Gorda is a great place to vacation. Everyone is so friendly! Will go back in a heartbeat!

Only thing to mention is the roosters crow very, very early in the morning. We got used to it as the week went on.

If you are going to Virgin Gorda and you are not interested in the fast lane, Guavaberry is the only place to stay! I have been to Virgin Gorda at least 5 times and I would never stay anywhere else. The cottages are spacious, the service is great. There is not a "staff", you get the personal touch. The owner,Tina, is always there and makes sure you have everything that you need. The private beach is the best. The commissary is stocked so you don't have to drive a mile to get a snack, dinner or sun tan lotion. Every cottage has a great balcony with a view of the bay. The Guavaberry welcome booklet says that you should lock up the doors at all times but I have never had any problem. Sometimes the mosquitoes are a pain because the cottages are tucked into the rocks but it depends upon the time of year. We love Guavaberry and cannot wait to go back!!!

Room Tip: Fitness center would be nice.
