“Coconut Grove is everythin you could ask for in a vacation villa!”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Coconut Grove Villa is an awesome vacation experience. Our family had stayed at Coconut Grove Villa on vacation a few years ago and had such a great stay that we knew that on our next visit to Virgin Gorda , we had to stay at Coconut Grove again, which was in June 2015. Everything about Coconut Grove is a great vacation experience and Tiina is always available if we need anything or just to get information or recommendations about where to visit or to eat. Tiina will even pick you up at the dock or the airport if you need her to. The wrap around decks overlook the North Sound and you can see Saba Rock, Bitter End Yacht Club, Prickly Pear Island, Mosquito Island and out on the horizon you can even see the lights of Anegada at night. And then there is the outdoor eating and grilling area, a nice big hammock, a pool table and the refreshing swimming pool and hot tub and the beautiful lush grounds. The well equipped kitchen has everything you need to cook any meal you want and the great room is so relaxing. The Villa has wireless internet so you can Skype or Facetime to friends and family back home. There are plenty of good places to shop for groceries on Virgin Gorda - Buck’s Wholesale Market, Rosie’s Grocery, Super Saver, and Roadtown Wholesale Market in Spanish Town and the Chef’s Pantry at Leverick Bay. Our stay was for two weeks so we had plenty of time for snorkeling, diving, sightseeing and enjoying island food. Diving with Sunchaser Scuba was a wonderful experience. We rented a van so we were able to visit The Baths, Coppermine, Savannah Beach for snorkeling and swimming. We enjoyed delicious meals at Saba Rock, Hog Heaven BBQ, the Mine Shaft Cafe, and the Restaurant at Leverick Bay. Even though we had two weeks, the time flew by and it was time to leave way too soon! Can’t wait till next time!

“Best villa we have ever stayed in!!”
Reviewed 1 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Coconut Grove is a beautiful villa. Well situated on the island. Walking distance to grocery store and Leverick Bay. Owner/manager is a wonderful person easy to get a hold of and very helpful and knowledgable about the island.. 5 beautiful ensuite bedrooms, all king beds. Beautiful view of North Sound.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We coordinated this trip with a group of people that live far across North America from our home town. We communicated the results of our research by email. Our friends suggested we stay at the Coconut Grove and although we thought it a bit expensive we agreed. Our focus switched to finding two more couples to average out the cost to an affordable amount. We found them and were set for a terrific diving holiday.
Tina our host met us at the airport, she is a very upbeat and hospitable lady, after loading the luggage into the back of her truck she chauffeured a contingent of our group to the grocery store to purchase supplies for the week.
Upon arrival at the villa my first impression was 'this place is awesome.' Staying in luxury villa for a week and diving every day, how could life get any better?
There are five bedrooms each with an ensuite and a private deck looking over the water. The bed was a bit hard for my liking but that is a personal thing and I did sleep well. The living/dining area is huge with more than enough room for each of our group of 10 to find their own space. We were never under each other's feet. The pool and surrounding deck is a perfect place to relax, have lunch and rehydrate, so to speak, after a morning of diving. And wow what a view, art work on the walls is unnecessary when the picture outside is of a harbour in the tropics.
A car is necessary to get to town, to frequent any of the island restaurants or to tour the island, but there is a grocery store within walking distance. If you are there to dive, Dive BVI's Leverick Bay dock is a 200M walk and frankly not worth getting in the car for. We walked every day.
If I return to Virgin Gorda I will search out 4 more couples and try to book Coconut Grove as our place to stay.

“Paradise!”

I am a little hesitant to write this review because it will tip others off about one of our favorite places in the world. Let me begin by saying the pictures do not do this property justice. This place is fabulous. You cannot capture how wonderful it is in a picture. You must see it.

The house sits about two tenths of a mile from the little town of Leverick Bay. As you walk in the main entrance, you enter the pool area. Immediately, you feel the tension you arrived with dissolve. We have rented this villa three times. I can only hope for another stay.

This beautiful home is located in our favorite area of Virgin Gorda. Virgin Gorda is still very quiet. It is not a cruise ship port. The locals are gracious and accommodating. The owner of this property lives on the island and is available to assist you with both expected and unexpected requests. She is down to earth, practical, creative, knowledgable about the area and always willing to assist. (When we were there, she reserved our rental car, had the pool man cut open fresh coconuts the girls and I requested, met us at the dock when we arrived, replaced a screen door we had damaged and grappled with our technological issues.) She manages to graciously offer assistance while also respecting your privacy. As I think back on my stay there, I think it is fair to say, this house is accessible for those with disabilities.

We prefer the house in Leverick Bay over houses in other developments on the island because the breeze is constant, you have all-day access to the sun, the small town is a short walk away, and the view is unrivaled. From the deck you can see Saba Rock, Bitter End and, on a clear night, Anagada.

We prefer to cook dinner at the house in the amazingly well-equipped kitchen. The store downtown (a bit over a football field away) has limited, but high quality provisions. They serve the sailing and yachting crowd. The prices are a bit steep, relative to what we pay in the states, but it's vacation! Also downtown is a dive shop where you can rent snorkeling or diving equipment, a branch of the famous Pussers, a small gift shop, a tiny, but wonderful spa, an expensive restaurant we have never tried and a casual outdoor dining spot where my girls ate pizza at night sometimes. We all grab a fruit punch there periodically.

We have never found many restaurants on the island to which we are committed but we do enjoy calling for the free shuttle boat from Saba Rock, having them pick us up from the dock downtown and going over to Saba Rock for lunch.

There is also a free ferry that leaves from Gun Creek, just over the hill, and will take you to Bitter End for a day adventure. The famous Baths are about twenty minutes away and the hike to the top of Virgin Gorda is a "must do." We have eaten at the restaurant at the top of the Baths. Beautiful view. Pretty good food. There is also a fresh water pool at the restaurant to swim in while you wait for your food.

The house is perfectly situated for all these adventures and houses the activity for the return home: a large pool. The pool is one of the largest ones on the island. It is big enough for swimming a few laps and stocked with floatation devices that allow you to read in the pool. During the day, one side of the pool is always shaded by the fabulous property garden and the other side is always sunny. You can moderate your sun exposure. The pool has steps and a shallow end that is great for younger kids.Years ago, our younger daughter perfected her swimming there. There is also a shelf build into the deeper end of the pool where you can sit and just stay cool, with drink in hand. This year, we returned to find a new deck with a hot tub. At night, the deck or the pool area are amazing places for seeing falling stars.

Usually, we have very little trouble with insects. We dine on the wrapping porch, overlooking the bay filled with sailboats, ferries and local traffic. We have always felt safe on Virgin Gorda. There are safes in the rooms and we use them, but we have never been given any reason to question our safety or security.

The rooms are all clean and comfortable. The master bedroom is in the main house. (Large bed and a single bed/couch in it.) Our favorite rooms are the two "lock outs" by the pool. All bedrooms are air conditioned and all have a fabulous private bath with the room. They are favorites because you can sleep or relax in those rooms without interruption. Usually, one of our daughters stays in the master. There are also two large rooms downstairs. They look extremely comfortable, but we have never used them.

The main house is open, inviting, immaculate and rather magnificant. There is a sitting area with a television, DVD player and even a VCR. The owner has a pretty extensive and diverse DVD library. We usually pack a few of our favorites and end up watching hers. There are also many books all over the house. Many mysteries and thrillers, so if that is your pleasure, don't bother carrying books down to the islands.

We love to approach the island on the North Sound Express. Our best option is to fly into Beef Island and then take the small ferry to the dock just down from the house. The ferry dock (on the Beef Island side is less than one half mile from the airport.) If she knows when you are coming, the owner will meet you at the dock in VIrgin Gorda. If you are going on the North Sound Express, call and make a reservation before you leave home.

Coconut Grove is a quiet getaway. If you are looking for lots of action, this is probably not your ideal destination. If you want to wind down and relax in paradise, you might want to give it a try. If you book the week I want before I get a chance, I will regret having written this review.
