A very special waterfront villa on its own private peninsula, this 6-bedroom home sits at the end of Mattie Point, with water on three sides and Gorda Peak behind. South Sound is a spectacular secluded area of Virgin Gorda, where you hear the waves breaking on the reef and your neighbors are pelicans, turtles and fish. To one side you'll see the Hurricane Hole and to the other is Great Hill. On the far side of Great Hill are fun places to visit such as Biras Creek, Saba Rock, and Bitter End Yacht Club.

Swim in the infinity-edge pool overlooking the sound or snorkel off the private dock to some of the best underwater viewing on the island. If you’re a little more adventuresome, take the 12 ft dinghy (Special Requirements) out to the 5000 foot reef for more snorkeling fun or motor over to the Hurricane Hole for exploration. Thrill-seekers may even want to try out the villa’s sailboard on the Sound.

The Main House: The rental vacation villa has been designed to let the ocean breezes and sunlight surround you. The Mexican-clay-tile main floor is a free flowing area, including a living room with a built-in CD entertainment system, dining room and fully-equipped kitchen with a seating bar for drinks. Double French doors along both front and back of the villa open to beautiful ocean views. A 12-foot wide covered front deck stretching the entire length of the house is a great place for a casual lunch, a romantic candlelit dinner or your afternoon nap in the hammock or chaise. The 8-foot garden deck, with propane stainless steel BBQ, will give you all the sun you want. Even the main floor bathroom extends into the outdoors, through sliding glass doors to the glass block enclosed double shower. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The Pool: The horizon edge 12,000 gallon pool is 5ft to 8ft deep with its own rock waterfall and lots of tile decks all overlooking South Sound. The pool deck has 8 chaise lounges and a 50 inch table with four chairs. If you want to lounge near the pool, but be out of the sun, enjoy the additional covered deck, which also has a 50 inch table, four more chairs and an entrance to the lower shower. Enjoy a drink at our covered poolside wet bar.

Pool Wing: Our pool wing has four more bedrooms and two bathrooms in a separate structure, connected by a bridge to the Main House of the villa and overlooking the pool.

The main floor includes the master bedroom area, a second bedroom, a bathroom with a glass block enclosed shower, and a covered veranda with chairs and tables, overlooking the pool and South Sound.

The master bedroom features a sitting area with rattan queen sleeper sofa, love seat and tables, 12 foot glass sliders to the veranda, views of South Sound on three sides and a king size pillow top bed.

The second bedroom is furnished with a queen pillow top bed, overlooks the pool and has double French doors opening to the veranda.The pool deck bedroom has a queen pillow top bed, overlooks the pool and deck and connects to the lower level bathroom and shower.

The top floor bedroom has a queen size pillow top bed and provides 360 degree views of South Sound and the mountains that surround the villa.

Amenities:

1) Communications:

The villa telephone system includes a fax/printer/copy machine, answering machine and 6 dual line wireless phones. The BVI number is 284-495-7425. Ask us about our very popular special low rates for incoming and outgoing telephone/fax service to the USA/Canada/other international calls. Lets you keep in touch.

Cellular (Verizon at $1.29 per min in or out) and GSM phones do work on the island. Ask your existing carrier for international roaming , which would allow for the use of your existing phone to operate in the BVI. E-mail me regarding specifics on how to do this. Android, iphones and Blackberry devices will operate with the villa wireless internet.

Wireless high speed internet service (802.11b/g) is available throughout the villa. No security code is needed.

2) Overhead fans are in the living and dining rooms and all bedrooms.

8) Our telescope is great for night viewing of the stars, and since the skies are very clear above Virgin Gorda and South Sound has few light sources, the view is great.

9) Take the stone walkway to the our dock for boating, swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving in South Sound. (Water shoes or snorkel fins recommended). Relax on our waterside 15 ft X 15ft dock with great views, fresh water enclosed shower and cooling breezes.

Our rental rates include BVI 7% tax and maid service midweek and weekend of your stay. Other arrangements can be provided.

The South Sound Road, which leads to the villa, connects to the main Virgin Gorda government road, running between the Valley and Gun Creek. The South Sound Road is a one lane island road about 1 mile long, which goes through pasture land with cattle and is level and flat and easy to drive on. The cattle are peaceful and will cause you no harm. If they happen to be in your way, just slowly pass by them.

We recommend a rental car be secured for your transportation while on Virgin Gorda, with several different types of rental vehicles available. We can arrange a rental for you and have the agency we work with pick you up at your point of entry. They will have the villa key, as well as a map to guide you to the villa. You can view the cars they have available by going to the link near the bottom of the page. Select the car you want and we will reserve it for you. Contact us for details.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Enjoyed a week at the villa, while the owner was there. A new 26" side by side GE refrigerator was installed. Renewed/repaired all the outdoor furniture. Replaced/renewed several screens. Repainted lots of railings/posts. Since my last visit, the furniture inside the living room has been replaced with very colorful units. A new hanging hammock swing for one person. Very relaxing. All of the appliances were checked and a new toaster purchased. There is a new gas outdoor grill. Beach towels and bath towels are always being replaced.

Went out for several relaxing dinners and lots of drinks.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5
We were torn between Virgin Gorda and Tortola and were so happy with our decision. The house is everything in the description and more. From the very first contact with Thorsten, everything went smoothly. He patiently answered our questions, booked our rental car and was always available for assistance.

The house is clean and very roomy. We had ample room for our group to spread out. The beds were so comfortable and the location was secluded yet close to everything. Anything you will need is already in the house. We spent hours in the pool and the hammocks.

Our stay was simoly spectacular, and we came home with incredible memories. If you're still searching- look no further. This is the place!

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to south sound and its beginning to feel like home. The house was in perfect condition when we arrived. Mr cook added a new refrigerator and a new boat. The views from the estate are breathtaking. We are starting to get to know the citizens who make us feel like neighbors. It's really hard to describe this property except "heaven on earth". Thanks Mr Cook for another wonderful week. Hope to see you next year!!!!

HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time at South Sound Villa and it now seems like home. The views from the estate are breathtaking. The owner added a new refrigerator and a new boat this year. The house was in perfect shape when we arrived.

We are getting to know the people in town who make us feel like part of neighborhood.

Sometimes its hard to describe how beautiful this property really is. The only way I can explain it is "HEAVEN ON EARTH"!!!!!!

Thanks Mr Cook for letting us enjoy this wonderful place.

Once again our stay at South Sound Villa was fantastic! There was a total of 5 of us. We celebrated my daughter's 20th birthday. There are plenty of places to relax by yourself or as a group. The constant ocean breezes and tranquility were amazing. What is listed here on the website about the Villa is exactly what you get, actually the pictures do not do it justice it is better. The views from every room of this villa are just unbelievable. From every room you can hear the ocean and feel the breezes from the ocean as you fall asleep. Wonderful.The caretakers Lynda and Liston are just great she called and stopped in to check on us, and whatever our need they fulfilled. We stayed here last year and were pleasantly surprised at the improvements that were made (it was already perfect), a new refrigerator with ice maker, new kitchen items like silverware etc., repainted, new chair hammock (which everyone loved and was in constant use), new boat and motor, updated sound system and new screens, just to mention a few!! We now have made friends in town with restaurant owners and townspeople. It truly feels like home. We again had 2 locals go into the sound off the dock and catch our dinner-LOBSTERS!! The owner Thornsten could not be nicer he helps with renting your SUV, restaurant recommendations and actually any thing you need. If you are looking to stay in the Virgin Islands this is the only place to stay. I HIGHLY Recommend it to anyone, period!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your very kind words about our villa. We try to make improvements and maintain the villa to a high standard. Our goal is to insure that each guest enjoys their time at the villa and tells their friends about the villa. The single seat hammock was such a hit with my grandchildren that 2 of them now have a copy in their home bedrooms. They called me and asked where I had bought it. I was on a vacation to Key West and found a shop who made them. I knew I had to have one for the villa. We hope to see you again next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review of the villa. Sadly there are 2% of people that go to the Caribbean and cannot enjoy themselves and write reviews that are false and misleading. As the owner of the villa it is impossible for me to prevent these types of reviews from being published.
