Why do we have so many happy and returning guests?

There is so much to love about our exceptionally PRIVATE ESTATE. Our renters love our OCEANFRONT Location overlooking three beaches with its own waterfront patio on the turquoise Caribbean Sea.

If you are a couple enjoying our 'Romantic Getaway for Two' or 5 couples traveling for fun and friendship, or an extended family of 14 guests, you ALWAYS HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF OUR ESTATE, which consists of the Caribe Main House and the Bali Wing. There are 5 bedrooms total, and you can choose bedrooms in both buildings.

At A DREAM COME TRUE ESTATE, you'll be drawn to Magnificent SUNSETS each evening before you make the decision - prepare dinner in our recently renovated gourmet kitchen and under the stars on the professional gas grill - or dine at one of Virgin Gorda's variety of restaurants. What a delightful decision!

At arrival, you will find two WELCOME GIFTS designed to help you relax: 'BREAKFAST DELIGHTS' for your first hearty breakfast on island and 'Pina Colada Fixin's' for toasting your first sunset at the estate. No rushing out to shop when you arrive! Ahh!

THESE TWO BUILDINGS ARE BOTH PART OF THIS ONE PROPERTY. WHEN YOU RENT A DREAM COME TRUE ESTATE, YOU ALWAYS HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THE ESTATE, WHETHER YOU ARE 2-14 GUESTS!

The CARIBE HOUSE offers the spacious and welcoming GREAT ROOM with soaring cypress ceilings over a beautifully furnished living room, dining room, NEW gourmet kitchen, and entertainment area.

OCEANFRONT LOCATION WITH SEASIDE PATIO & KAYAK FLEET

A Dream Come True Estate enjoys a unique Oceanfront location overlooking beautiful Pond and Savannah Bay Beaches along the Western Beach Coast of Virgin Gorda. Because our luxury villa is 60' above the level of the sea, we catch the Trade Winds all year round. Our vantage point makes our 180 Degree Views simply superb! Three Beaches and many Islands are within view, and throughout the day the colors of the Water Will Shimmer and change from Turquoise to Indigo to Cerulean.

Our acre estate offers an Exceptionally Private Location, and you will delight in the Lush Tropical Gardens surrounding the villa. Our garden supplies guests with luscious mangoes, papayas, and key limes.

The HORIZON POOL is the Centerpiece of the villa with a Sitting Shelf Running Across the Back where you can sit and read while watching pelicans and boats sail by!

As MY guest, you will have all the amenities of Mango Bay Resort, including the use of beautiful MAHOE BAY BEACH! You'll be swimming and snorkeling at one of the best snorkeling beaches on Virgin Gorda. Or you can do as I do - put sand chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels, cooler, and your book into the back of your car and drive 30 SECONDS to park at the bottom of the hill and be in the water in a minute! This is what I do, especially when I have my grandchildren along. You never know when they all of a sudden need a nap. In 30 seconds, we're back at A DREAM COME TRUE! A splash in the pool to wash off the sand and salt, and into the Pack ' Play for nap time!

WHY CHOOSE VIRGIN GORDA?

You will never be bothered by anyone selling hats or anything at a Virgin Gorda Beach ~ and 99% of them are uncrowded. (The Baths is crowded until after 2 pm; then the ferry returns to Tortola.) Many love to practice their Yoga overlooking the Caribbean Sea from my veranda. You can play Miniature Golf when you might have had too much sun after a day at one of the Pristine Beaches - which are World Class and Uncrowded. In the evenings, search out some Live Caribbean Music at various locales and enjoy Virgin Gorda's many Restaurants. The next day, you will be energized again after a Restful Night's Sleep at A Dream Come True, and be ready to go Para Sailing over the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Or try Paddle Boarding! Go Sailing! Or Get Married in the BVI! Float in our pool by day, for sunset, or watching the stars at night. Or you can just Read, Relax, and Watch the pelicans diving into the sea for lunch...Heaven!

About Germaine R. Fritz

My first career was in education, for 25 years. However, once we built A DREAM COME TRUE, I started learning about fulfilling the dreams of our villa's renters and how to run a rental home that was thousands of miles away from home. I decided that I'd dedicate myself 100% to making our villa a wonderful, gracious respite for our family as well as the other families who rented from us. For many years before I built our home, our family rented beautiful homes directly from owners, and we were grateful for those opportunities.

I decided I would only rent directly to guests and NOT through wholesalers who had never seen my unique, beautiful villa. WHEN YOU CONTACT ME, YOU ARE WORKING WITH AN OWNER - NOT THE BUSINESS OFFICE OF A REALTOR! Be assured that I take a genuine personal interest in providing you with the best possible vacation experience. You are not 'just a number' when you rent from an owner like me! I consider myself your 'Virgin Gorda Concierge' in advance of your stay, and I will do everything I can to make sure you have your best vacation ever by assisting you with travel plans and finding flights to Virgin Gorda, with renting a vehicle, hiring a private chef, a boat rental, snorkel or scuba trips, spa services at the villa, or whatever will make YOUR trip memorable. I have always treated my guests as if they are good friends, with respect, and in return, I have been blessed with an excellent reputation and a villa that is one of the most popular luxury villas on Virgin Gorda. I am a VERY involved owner, and my husband and I visit our home four or five times a year.

Our children are now adults, but they named our villa 'A DREAM COME TRUE' because the whole family dreamed of owning a villa on Virgin Gorda some day! One daughter honeymooned there, my son got married at Spring Bay in 2010, and we have six grandchildren age six and under who love coming to ADCT!

I live on the coast north of Boston, MA and enjoy the beach and ocean here in the summer.

Germaine R. Fritz purchased this villa in 2000

Why Germaine R. Fritz chose Virgin Gorda

Since 1980, my husband and I had traveled to lovely, unspoiled Virgin Gorda, and eventually brought our three children there as well. We always looked at property while on vacation and dreamed about building a home 'someday' as we enjoyed staying in other folks' villas. We'd take notes on what we liked in different homes and keep track of trends in the building industry.

One Christmas vacation, we sent our kids home because we planned to stay on a second week (the oldest was a freshman in college). On our way back from the ferry dock, we saw a small sign on cardboard tacked to a piece of a tree alongside the road: Lots for Sale. It wasn't there earlier in the day. Immediately we inquired. We LOVED the land, the view, and we thought we almost could afford it!

Immediately we showed the lot to our friend who builds luxury villas on Virgin Gorda, and we bought the land the same day!

In December 1999, our home was almost ready. On Christmas Day, our family arrived to unpack two containers of new furniture, appliances, and everything from lamps to steak knives. The steps to the second floors were incomplete, so we needed to use ladders....but it was home!! If you look at our web site for a photo of our family floating in the pool at sunset, that was taken the first evening at sunset.

A DREAM COME TRUE is designed to be ideal for families or couples sharing a villa that offers exceptional privacy to all because of the floor plan, yet plenty of space to come together to make memories. The HORIZON POOL is the centerpiece of the villa, and from there you will see the Caribbean change colors throughout the day into evening when gorgeous sunsets arrive.

EVERY room and location at the villa has an OCEAN VIEW! There is a convenient pool bar with a refrigerator and professional gas grill.

Our UNIQUE OCEANFRONT LOCATION and thatched-roof pergola has chaises where you can relax seaside. The boathouse is located there as well, with six double sit-aboard kayaks. Enjoy!

What makes this villa unique

When you choose THE A DREAM COME TRUE ESTATE for your vacation home, you will enjoy the exceptional privacy of an acre of OCEANFRONT land with panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea. The villa is surrounded by lush, tropical gardens, beautifully landscaped.

Excellent quality snorkel gear is available for your use during your stay, plus our fleet of kayaks.

Our luxury villa offers you WATER SPORTS at your oceanfront location. SWIM, SNORKEL, or KAYAK in 2 MINUTES to POND BAY or SAVANNAH BAY BEACHES! Or open our front gate and enjoy a short 5 minute walk to lovely MAHOE BAY BEACH as a guest of Mango Bay Resort, my management company. Mahoe Bay Beach is a wonderful snorkeling beach and terrific for children. You can also drive and park: just pack your sand chairs, beach towels, books and cooler in the back of your car, and in 30 SECONDS, you're there!

A major benefit of staying at A DREAM COME TRUE is the fact that ALL of our VERIFIED guest reviews are 5-stars. I'm very proud of that and the excellent reputation of our villa!

When guests reserve a stay at A DREAM COME TRUE, upon arrival they are delighted to see TWO WELCOME GIFTS! One is 'PINA COLADA FIXIN'S' - all the ingredients you need for pina coladas to toast your first sunset. The other is 'BREAKFAST DELIGHTS' - everything you need for your first hearty breakfast on Virgin Gorda.

At my villa, I pamper my guests in other ways as well. MAID SERVICE is 7 DAYS A WEEK. My housekeeper will do your LAUNDRY on Tuesday. You'll find bathroom amenities, such as shampoo and conditioner, so you can travel light.

Our furnishings are top-quality, the sheets are 600 thread count, and you will find a well maintained villa with professionally maintained gardens, a well-stocked home with everything you need for your BEST vacation ever!

When reserving your week, I send you a presentation folder with a reservation form and letter, personalized information on Virgin Gorda activities, & a WELCOME MAGAZINE.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the nicest villa we have ever stayed in. It is luxurious, with full-service hotel quality. Additionally, one has the magnificent water views from all bedrooms and common areas; it is a place for escape and peace. For family time, or for a romantic getaway, it is the top. Can't wait to go back. 5 stars! (Rented for a month.)



Owner's Reply:



Bart, I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay at A DREAM COME TRUE! You are the first guest who ever rented our villa for a month! I look forward to welcoming you back in 2014 to your Virgin Gorda home.



All the best,

Germaine

We had a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation in Virgin Gorda & loved our stay at this beautiful villa. It had everything we needed! We enjoyed using the kayaks to visit nearby beaches & spent many evenings enjoying the sunset from the pool & back veranda. Puck cooked an amazing dinner for us & Germaine kept everything clean & tidy. We enjoyed our trip very much and highly recommend A Dream Come True.

A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
“Where do we begin singing our praises of this marvelous place? We were in complete awe of the villa from the pictures we saw, but they truly don’t do the place justice. You feel like you own the cliffside and bay - so secluded! We had hurricane scare at the beginning of our trip, but we were completely taken care of. Germaine called numerous times to make sure we were okay. The best snorkeling was in our bay. We spent so much time playing in the pool. The view was so spectacular from the pool we never wanted to get out. We had four incredible Scuba Dives to Ginger Snaps, Middle Chromis, and the RMS Rhone (a must!). Because we loved our villa so much, we cooked most of our meals at home. We hope to return to this beautiful piece of paradise SOON! It was the absolute perfect home away from home!

Owner's Response: Dear Diane,

Thanks so much for your enthusiastic 5-star review of your stay at A Dream Come True villa! When I phoned you during your stay, you and your whole group were so excited about the opportunity to have a tropical storm pass by Virgin Gorda. Luckily, the winds were only 40 m.p.h. and it was quickly gone. It sounds like you experienced much of the best that Virgin Gorda has to offer, but you'll need a return trip to continue your love affair with this precious island and A Dream Come True. Do come back soon and you'll be warmly welcomed by my staff of 10+ years! - Germaine Fritz, Owner, A Dream Come True Villa

Stunning Caribbean Views

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to be invited to stay at A Dream Come True Villa as guests of our dear friends who were celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary. It was our first visit to the British Virgin Islands and we had the best vacation experience ever! The villa is gorgeous, well maintained and the views of the Caribbean are spectacular. Since my husband and I live on the West Coast, we have visited the Hawaiin Islands several times but I have to say that I can't wait to return to this beautiful island and Germaine's villa. We thought Hawaii is the best place to visit on vacation but now Virgin Gorda and A Dream Come True Villa are our most favorite places on Earth.

Thank for your enthusiastic review of A Dream Come True Villa and the beautiful island of Virgin Gorda! Over the past fifteen years, so many of my first-time guests have echoed your sentiments exactly: they have been forever spoiled by the lovely beaches of Virgin Gorda and no longer want to vacation anywhere else! I'm delighted you loved my villa and you enjoyed your week making memories with best friends. I hope your dream of returning to Virgin Gorda and A Dream Come True does come true!

2 week stay September 2014

  • 5 of 5
This place is fantastic. This is our 3rd trip to the BVI. 2 weeks on a 72 ft. sailboat, 2 weeks at Bitter End Yacht Club and 2 weeks at this villa. This was the best place we have stayed in the BVI. We would go on about one excursion a day ( snorkeling, the Baths kayaking, island hoping etc.) and go out to dinner at one of the great restaurants about every other night. We always made sure we were back at the villa in the pool having cocktails at sunset. What a way to spend my 70th. The place has wonderful views fantastic landscaping and is furnished beautifully. Germaine, the owner, was fantastic and made sure everything went smoothly. We will return to what truly is A Dream Come True.

Owner's Response: Dear Mike,

Thank you for your detailed and heartfelt review, which you told me would be your first on-line review. It was my pleasure over the months as your "Virgin Gorda Concierge" to help you plan your first villa trip. You invited different groups to join you at A Dream Come True at different times, and our head housekeeper Germain Williams was happy to accommodate their arrivals and departures. I'm happy you loved the kayaking ~ what better way to celebrate your 70th birthday? Nothing satisfies me more, after fifteen years of renting our beautiful home, than another 5-star review from a guest like you whose expectations were met and exceeded. I look forward to helping you plan your return trip next spring!

All the best,

Exceeded expectations for the seasoned traveler

  • 5 of 5
A Dream Come True is a well fitting name to describe the trip I took for my 50th birthday celebration. The villas owner, Germaine, let us know from the initial contact that she was willing and eager to help us make this trip a memorable and smooth one for our large group of family and friends. After our short ride from the ferry station to our villa, we were met by the courteous and helpful Geno in the Maho Bay office, literally steps away from the entrance to our villa.
When we opened the gate and stepped in, we all gasped at how beautiful the villa, pool and views were... The rooms were clean, spacious and each had a great view. It didn't take the adults long to pick our rooms because all the views from the bedrooms are fabulous!
The location near sapphire and pond bay was very nice and their were no crowds- it was like having our own succluded island. In the late afternoon, a few beautiful boats and yachts would park in the cove and made our picturesque view even prettier. The kitchen was well stocked with top of the line knives and lots of glassware and plates to accomate our big crew. The pool is not huge but all you really need to float around in after a fun day at the nearby Baths or eating in the great nearby restaurants. The kayaks that come with the property gave our college age kids the perfect vehicle to take off on snorkel adventures within our view. The best part was that although we had 13 in our group, we all felt like we had plenty of room for privacy. We read lots of books off the shelves, took naps in the sun or shade by the pool and swam in the warm water.What I liked the least was that we weren't smart enough to book puck, the chef who made our delicious welcome dinner, more than one other time. What a character and fantastic chef. His concoctions and fusions of the food he prepared made the kids and adults alike very happy.
I highly recommend you work on making this your DREAM COME TRUE.

Owner's Response: Lisa, thank you for your detailed, 5-star review of A Dream Come True! I apologize that I'm just responding now due to a bout with the flu. Helping you plan your 50th Birthday Week Celebration was fun for me, too! I could tell from your review that everyone in your group found their "dream" activities, whether it be kayaking from our oceanfront location to lovely Pond Bay Beach, floating in our new pool, or simply lazing around reading a book, wondering when Puck will show up and what he'll be preparing for dinner. For those of you who book the villa in the future, I do recommend letting me know if you want to reserve Chef Puck! I planned a 50th birthday dinner for Lisa with a yummy cake from a talented local pastry chef. Many milestone birthdays and anniversaries are celebrated at my villa each year, but you don't need that excuse to plan a trip!

A DREAM COME TRUE VILLA ESTATE is named 'THE BEST OF THE BEST - TOP VACATION VILLA - 2014!' It s a 5-star LUXURY villa that sleeps 2-14 in 5 BR. Located on the western BEACH coast of Virgin Gorda, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS, the gem of the BVI, it's unique OCEANFRONT location is ideal. Please invest some time to visit our UPDATED and EXTENSIVE WEBSITE: www.bvidreamvilla.com, SPECIALS & also read our VERIFIED reviews when making the important decision about where to spend your precious vacation week while on Virgin Gorda. I invite you to come and find out for yourself why ALL of our VERIFIED guest reviews are 5-stars. I am a very involved owner, you will be dealing with me personally to plan your BEST vacation ever rather than a management company that deals with a multitude of properties on many islands, and my wonderful, warm staff of 5 employees have been part of my winning team for 10 years. They are in great part responsible for our guests' love of our villa.

If you are a couple on our 'Romantic Getaway for Two,' a group of 5 couples, or an extended family of 14 guests making memories at our villa, you ALWAYS HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THE VILLA!

On Virgin Gorda, nothing can be built taller than a palm tree, no casinos, no trash. Just gorgeous views of turquoise sea, white sand beaches, and bright tropical flowers on an island where the people are happy to WELCOME you to their piece of paradise because the local BVIslanders own and run the restaurants, car rental companies, and they are invested personally in keeping their island pristine and their welcome guests happy. For these reasons, we chose Virgin Gorda as our family's DREAM, and we welcome you to share it with us.

A DREAM COME TRUE, located on a private oceanfront estate that is practically an acre in size, means exceptional privacy for you. The colorful tropical gardens, professionally and lovingly tended, help provide you with a sense of peace and harmony and the the stunning bouquets in every room of the villa.

Our luxury villa is only 1.5 miles (ten minutes) from Spanish Town (airport, ferry, shops, restaurants, beaches). So near, yet so far away...

POND BAY BEACH & SAVANNAH BAY BEACH

At our OCEANFRONT location, we have a very private seaside verandah with a thatched-roof pergola and chaises for relaxing as you gaze out to beaches and the turquoise sea. There is a fleet of 6 DOUBLE kayaks so you can paddle in 2 MINUTES to the beaches!There is GREAT snorkeling right from our oceanfront location!

MANGO BAY RESORT

Or open the villa's front gate and walk down the driveway of Mango Bay Resort and in less than 5 MINUTES, you'll be at their gorgeous beach! I choose to load the back of my car with sand chairs, beach towels, snorkel gear, books, and a cooler for drinks and drive 30 SECONDS TO PARK AT THE BEACH. You can be swimming in a minute! This is great with kids in your group who suddenly need lunch or a nap. This pristine, mile-long beach at Mango Bay Resort is NEVER crowded, great for kids, and is known for excellent snorkeling. I usually see SEA TURTLES when snorkeling here. It is a great beach for sun or shade under the sea-grape trees. Mango Bay Resort is my management company, and as my guest, you are entitled to the use of all their amenities, including Mahoe Bay Beach and their Guest Services, which are top-notch. Our guests love our exceptionally private estate with water sports at our oceanfront location, and 3 world-class beaches within easy reach.

But Virgin Gorda has 14 beautiful beaches, so you'll want to venture out of the villa and do some exploring. Around every bend in the road is another terrific view! Virgin Gorda is only 8 miles long. Remember our villa is only 1.5 miles from Spanish Town, where the airport, ferry dock, grocery stores, and restaurants are located.

Here is a partial list of some of the things my guests enjoy doing while staying at my villa. As their 'Virgin Gorda Concierge' in advance of their stay, I am available to help them make their plans and offer advice before their trip.

HOW TO SPEND A DAY IN PARADISE!

1. Visit “The Baths” and other National Parks Beaches, gorgeous, exotic beaches strewn with gigantic boulders.

2. KAYAK!!

3. Climb Gorda Peak National Park, the mountain behind the villa.

7. Snorkel Trips can go to three BVI islands in a day.

8. Water Sports – rent a sailboat or motorboat and island hop.

9. Tour the Copper Mine Ruins National Park and other historical ruins.

  • The six bathrooms at A Dream Come True are all extraordinary! The imported ceramic tile in all bathrooms was specifically chosen to Complement the Interior Design of each Bedroom Suite and is different in each one. It echos the Theme of the Decor in each bedroom ~ Caribbean for the Caribe House and Balinese for the Bali Wing. The showers are an experience you'll never forget! You can watch the pelicans diving for their dinner as you lather and rinse! The Colors of the Caribbean Sea change throughout the day, and from your perch in the shower, you truly have 'a bird's eye view!' The glass blocks let the sun shine in but afford you Abundant Privacy. After your shower, Relax on your Private Ocean-View Deck or patio. You'll be in a World of Your Own while in your Exceptionally Private Bedroom Suite. The PRIVACY of our villa is one of the many reasons why we are rated so highly by our guests' reviews - all 5 Stars on FLIPKEY and TripAdvisor. Come see for yourself!
