I just returned (in the last 45 minutes) from our 11th trip to Guavaberry Spring Bay Vacation Homes. We split our time between a GSB Home and one of the "Deluxe Villas" managed by the GSB Vacation Homes. We are already booked for next year and hoping to return sooner.
It is such a unique place it is hard to put into words. GSB Vacation Homes has the only private road access to the beach at Spring Bay, that only can produce an "enough said" for many travelers :)
The location is stunning, homes built among the boulders at the famous "Baths" area of Virgin Gorda. The owner Tina, and assistant Valerie are consummate professionals, whose services rival those of the best concierge's at any of the world's best hotels.
The GSB Vacation Homes are cottages built around the boulders, with eat in kitchens, showers/bathrooms, maid service and decks with astounding views of the Sir Frances Drake Channel. There is a "honor system" fully stocked commissary with everything you might need for a great meal and more on site, with 24 hour WiFi (the WiFi fee is high, but service is very limited in general on the island). Many vacationers seem to never leave the Guavaberry "compound" as it is only necessary if you would like to eat at local restaurants or visit other beaches on the island.
The "Deluxe Villas" all offer different amenities and configurations. We have been returning to the same house for a decade now and feel like it is our home away from home.
For anyone who has not visited the BVI, the beach at Guavaberry is the best in the entire island chain. There are generally 10-20 Guavaberry guests on the beach each day and some random people from boats moored at the "Baths" and Spring Bay. The boating "crowd" (10-20 people at a time) can be a bit annoying, as they generally seem to be first time sailors (many sail boat renters seem to never put up a sail and run under motor at all times) and disregard good boating sense and manners at times.
Beach chairs and towels are provided, full gear for snorkeling can be rented at the commissary.
The place is simply amazing! In the last 2 years a great new restaurant has opened on the island "Coco Maya" and is a stones throw for Guavaberry. We had 3 fabulous meals there this stay. Compliments to Chef "Stevie" and his team.
We have met so many interesting people at Guavaberry from many walks of life.
It is a the best place we have found for a quiet relaxing vacation. It is not for everyone, there is no "nightlife" to speak of, Virgin Gorda is difficult to reach, the restaurant and food options are a bit lacking and the food prices are VERY high, but if you are looking for a relaxing vacation in a mind numbingly beautiful location, this is your place!
