“An excellent place to stay run by some truly excellent and welcoming people”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

I loved staying here. the views are to die for. The rooms were massive. Plenty of space and plenty of modcoms provided. Lauralee is an absolutely excellent hostess and i would recommend a stay here purely on the strength of her welcome and her character.
You will need a vehicle if you wish to stay here unless you have a love of very steep hills

The location of Gordian Terrace is a bit out of the way, though you need to car to get anywhere on the island, so this isn't a deal breaker. The main problem with the Gordian Terrace was the cleanliness of the room. We found hair on our pillows and our towels did not feel clean. The bed is also quite uncomfortable. On the plus side, the apts are very spacious and there is a nice view. Lauralee is exceptionally helpful and friendly, she's the main reason to stay here.

My husband and I just returned from the BVIs. Our stay at Gordian Terrace (1/26-1/30/13) was a wonderful experience. We had a spacious, well appointed apartment on the third floor with a killer view of North Sound. Gordian is an easy fifteen minute drive north of The Valley and I'll so glad we stayed in quiet North Sound rather than town. Virgin Gorda is a gem of an island - beautiful, wild, low key and not crowded. The people are the friendliest, most helpful we have met in many years of travel. Lauralee of Gordian is a sweetheart - warm, friendly, helpful. If you are looking for a non-resort experience and want a spacious, clean, quiet retreat at a reasonable cost - please stay at Gordian!

Room Tip: third/top floor has the best view, second floor has two bedroom units with a decent view

3rd floor apt view is huge, quiet mountain village location, crickets sing at night, very large rooms, nice balcony and kitchen and living room one large space too, and rarely found friendliness of lady who runs the place. She will pick you up and come to ferry to say goodbye. Rare. Get top floor suites for huge view, very mysterious at night. Nice bathrooms, and hopefully hot water will be fixed soon (so i heard - and believe), not that you will need anything but cool shower after the day in the hot sun.
Its a big hill so do rent a car in Spanish Town to live at this place. This is the place to be if you dont like resorts or bar noise nearby.

I stayed at Gordian House in March 2012 with my son and partner. We traveled to the British and US Virgin Islands for a relaxing getaway during a break in my chemotherapy (i'm doing great now) and it was one of our favorite places. We'd vacationed on St John and Tortola a few years earlier - but this was our first time on Virgin Gorda. The owner, Lauralee, met us at the villa - and was so kind and helpful. She gave us GREAT info about where to go (and WHEN - very important) - the Baths, crystal clear beaches, the restaurants. She also arranged our rental Jeep and met us at the ferry (from St. Thomas). We had a 2 BR suite with full kitchen - which always comes in handy. It includes parking. I would absolutely recommend this property to everyone (if you have trouble with stairs - request a unit on the first floor.)

My family and I have visited Virgin Gorda 3 times now but the most fulfilling and most authentic island experience was when we stayed at Gordain Terrace with Lauralee recently. We stayed for 8 nights and it was the most interesting and exciting visit we have had on VG so far and all at an affordable price. Lauralee is the most gracious and detailed host and the property is beautiful, clean and well kept. We were very comfortable with cooking in our own kitchen whenever we wanted to. The location in North Sound is such a wonderful mix of truly breathtaking views while also being in the very heart of this small and friendly West Indian village where simplicity, love of life and mutual respect between visitors and residents abound. Truly, Gordian Terrace is our new "home away from home". Grab a rental car, (which Lauralee can arrange for you), and you will have all you need to fulfill all of your wishes for an island getaway. Fabulous points of interest and adventures are available in all directions from this location as well as any provisions you may need. You will be 15 minutes away from any point on the island that may be calling you. Each morning when the sun rises over the ocean horizon, and the goats and chickens start calling out again, you will be so glad you chose this charming location. Trust me, the comfort, convenience and special hospitality of staying with Lauralee at Gordian Terrace will bring you back again and again to your own special "home away from home"!

Featuring one and two bedroom suites , this "Gordian House" is conveniently located high above on the hill with spectacular panoramic views. Rooms are clean and large. It's relatively close to all North Sound Ferries. I really advise to rent a car while staying in Virgin Gorda, there are lots to explore around. The Baths, Devil's Bay, Spring Bay and Coppermine are the must to visit., spare at least a day for these activities. If travelling without car, local people are friendly, and get a ride is not a problem.
Couldn't wait to come back in November...and explore little islets around...
