“Feb 2014 Stay”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

I stayed at the Guavaberry Home with my boyfriend while we were visiting the Baths and it was an absolute pleasure. If you are renting a car, let Tina (manager) know upon arrival since they do send out drivers to pick you up from the ferry station. The property was conveniently located to a wonderful beach called Spring Bay and the baths are only minutes away. I loved everything about this island, and this spot. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Book far in advance. Wake up early to visit the Baths... it gets very busy and takes up a lot of...

To clarify, this is a neighborhood of vacation cottages. They have all the amenities of home, and in VG, if on a budget, this will be a blessing as one night at a nearby restaurant cost more than the rest of our food costs for our ENTIRE week trip. The cottages are just fine, clean (with daily cleanings) and pleasant, but not fancy.

On-site food availability, bouldering pads, beach towels, chairs: awesome. Privacy and outdoor spaces: excellent. Walkability to all SE areas of the island, and 20 minutes to good bouldering!

Room Tip: We had the first-built cottage on premises (we're told), Cashew, and it had an incredible view f...

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!

Room Tip: take a cottage away from the road!

This was our third visit to Virgin Gorda and the second time we've stayed at Guavaberry Springs Bay itself (the other happened to be at a magnificent property up the road now managed by GSB). The place is virtually unchanged from thirty-some years ago -- and it suited us even more perfectly than we recalled,

The little one-bedroom houses perched on stilts are so well laid out that each has an ocean view and almost complete privacy from the other cottages. Layout is simple and very well planned: the llving room/kitchen area has ample space for reading and relaxing, the deck invites morning breakfasts and even dinners in, the bedroom and bath are small but very adequate. The landscaping is excellent and the houses are carefully maintained.

The Commissary had a better wine selection than any of three groceries we visited, and some interesting main courses as well as frozen pizza, snack food, Dove Bars and other indulgences. Tina and her ladies run a great operation...and snorkeling at their beach really is better than at the Baths (though Savannah Bay proved best this trip).

Room Tip: We stayed in Cedar this year, initially disappointed we couldn't reserve our original Oleander...

Few things in life get better with age. Guavaberry Springs in the exception. 25 years ago we got married @ Drakes Anchorage (No longer a inn and island now owned by Sr. Richard Branson). We spent some of our honeymoon at Guavaberry and loved it. We just returned home from a 9 day visit for our 25th anniversary. Guavaberry has not changed. It is charming, but, not for everyone. No TV,or phones and no room service. AC is a option that we did not want. Quiet, relaxing, fab beach. Just charming as ever. It even has a well stocked provisioning store. Everyone is friendly and so helpful.
Oh and did I mention the great resort dogs and roosters? Yup, it has it all.

My brother and I shared this magnificent property for a week. The place is more of a complex than a house, with a large main building surrounded by several sleeping cottages. The buildings and connecting decks are build on and around the giant boulders typical of Spring Bay and The Baths. The overall effect is like living in a cool and shady treehouse. Lizards abound, the view of Sir Francis Drake sound is expansive, and the private pool gives a sense of luxury to the place. A refreshing breeze comes up from the sea and makes the ambiance delightful. The property was very clean and well-maintained, and there was an efficient daily cleaning service. The kitchen was well-equipped and functional. The beach associated with the property is small but very nice and not at all crowded. We were often there with only a handful of people. It is an easy walk to another equally beautiful beach if you are in the mood for a change. The enormous boulders lend visual interest and majesty to the beach. There is great snorkeling right off the beach. There is a large selection of snorkeling equipment available for the use of the guests. The commissary is well-stocked, convenient, and reasonably-priced. The staff were friendly and helpful, and our stay was supremely relaxing. I would come here again in a heartbeat.

There can be a bit of noise from Spanishtown (e.g. soccer game, street party); this was not very bothersome and occurred only occasionally.

Room Tip: One of the associated cottages has a small kitchen; the others are primarily sleeping quarters. You...

We have been going to Virgin Gorda for aprox 18 years now. We stay at Guavaberry Spring Bay Vacation Homes. It is PERFECT!!! there are 1, 2 and 3 bedroom cottages scattered around a large piece of property. The boulders are HUGE and the grounds are beautiful. Everything is taken care of daily and IF there is any issue/problem, you can trust that it is taken care of IMMEDIATELY! This is a well run business. It is like "coming home" from the moment you arrive. Tina, Michele and Valerie take care of your every need. The dogs are always happy to see you, follow you to the beach or to your cottage. The cottages are very clean, well equipped with all one needs, from a cooler, blender, ice pack, beach towels and a fully equipped kitchen.
Spring bay beach is THE NICEST beach we have ever been to. The sand, water and snorkeling cannot be beat! Comfortable chairs are supplied for all guests and there are a few picnic tables there too to use. It is a quick swim to THE BATHS or a short walk there. The top of the Baths restaurant is very nice, little shops MAD DOG is right along the way. Edith, at MAD DOG - serves THE best BLT's, bushwacker and so many other great items. Go in with your sandy feet and relax. Open air place and nothing is rushed.
We also went to one of the "newer" restaurtants called COCOMAYA and it was awesome. What a spot! right on the beach, comfy chairs, a fire burning, swings at the bar, sushi, tapas and great drinks....all while the waves are feet away from you.
The Rock Café has THE BEST pizza. Eat inside and enjoy the piano bar, some nights it is Karaoke OR go sit a table outside amongst the huge boulders.
I could go on and on, but I think I have made my point. SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!!
GUAVABERRY SPRING BAY VACATION HOMES WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN!!!!! experience it for yourself and you WILL be back!!!!

Room Tip: ALL of the cottages have an ocean view and each cottage has something special about it. You will NOT...
