About Kathy Corbett

Our family has owned property in Great Camanoe since 1978, when the original home was built, this was situated on the westerly boundary. When it was sold the family missed it far more than was anticipated. Since we still owned the land next door we designed and just finished a new one. Given same site and exposure, this house has every mistake discovered in 30 years living at the old one more than corrected. It is not far from perfect. (For us!)

Why Kathy Corbett chose Tortola

The Caribbean, as a whole, is not the world's easiest destination. But the British Virgins are about the easiest to get to if you are going to the Caribbean.

San Juan is a world hub with hundreds of direct, many non-stop, flights from all over the globe. The San Juan to Tortola leg (SJU to EIS) is just 35 minutes. From Vermont we are on the deck by same day mid afternoon.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you again,

What an adventure!

  • 4 of 5

What can I say. This was definitely an adventure. After ferry delays on St Thomas we finally make it to West End where Renata picked us up and drove us all the way across the island to meet up with Lennox in Trellis Bay. As the sun was starting to set Lennox is driving us across the channel and the boat dies. No big deal it was just the pump on the gas tank that wasn't connecting properly. So with a few stalls and about half an hour later we finally make into the boat slip. He mentioned that he will need a ride back to Trellis once he drops us off and shows us the villa. By this time it's DARK and Lennox tells my husband he can drive and he will jump on the bumper of the jeep. "just drive where I tell you to" with a few Lefts we make it to the villa. (CRAZY to have a stranger drive in the dark on small roads up steep hills with a guy on the bumper but OK) I guess that's their way of knowing you'll be fine in the daylight. So we go into the villa, very little lighting and Lennox is showing us around as we notice several spiders scurrying away. As I bite my tongue and start turning on the lights and opening doors it really wasn't getting much better. thought what did we get ourselves into. As Lennox comes to the end of showing us around he tells my husband he has to take him back to Trellis Bay. So my 12 year old daughter and I are in a strange villa as my husband is somewhere in the Sir Drake Channel in a boat we weren't sure would make it. Lennox said he would call to make sure he made it back in a 1/2 hour. Lennox calls as he said he would and still no husband. I look out and see this TINY little light. Wait about 15 more minutes and finally (with some stories) my husband returns. As we are unpacking we were trying to figure out where my 12 year old daughter is going to sleep. I didn't realize the other beds were in separate buildings. SO the three of us all slept in the one queen size bed. A little cramped but we made due. We finally got to sleep after an interesting evening. Woke up the next morning refreshed. with the view, the smell of the ocean, the BEAUTY of it all made up for feelin creeped out. Seeing the villa in the daylight was wonderful. It didn't take us long to feel comfortable. Best part of the villa is that it came with the boat. We took it out every day. Over to Trellis a couple times,Marina Cay several times for lunch, snorkeled Little Camanoe (both sides) It was really a great adventure. Just remember 3 beds - 3 buildings

A Perfect BVI Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Red Rocks is a magical place situated with breathtaking views. The villa met all our expectations and is truly designed to capture stunning views and breezes no matter where you are. The separate cottages were private and lovely, though it is a rather steep hike up and down the hill to get there. The villa was very clean with plenty of kitchen amenities. Lennox, the caretaker, is an absolute dream and was so helpful with everything we needed. Our only problem was with the dinghy--it needs to be replaced as it is dangerous--we came very close to being stranded out at sea because the boat kept stalling.

I would definitely recommend Red Rocks, but check to see if the boat has been replaced. We enjoyed The Baths at Virgin Gorda, snorkeling at Great Dog Island, Little Camanoe and dinner in Roadtown at Red Rock Restaurant. Bobby's Market is great and will deliver to the dock at Trellis Bay.

The management contact, Kathy, was also very friendly, informative and responsive to our needs.

As we approached "Red Rocks" villa by boat, the

view of the estate was even more beautiful than the

photos. We had been met at Trellis Bay by the

villa's wonderful caretaker, Lennox, and that was

the beginning of an outstanding family holiday on

Great Camanoe.

After we were settled, Lennox arranged to come

back the next morning and give us a tour of the

island. This was very helpful as we learned about

the Indigo Plantation community, things to do, and

places to swim and snorkel.

Most days, we snorkeled locally and dined in the

evening at home. Having the use of the dinghy

allowed us to fully explore the beauty of Great

Camanoe. We did take 2 day trips "off island": 1) we

rented a car at the airport and spent the day on

Tortola; 2) we took the North Sound Express Ferry

to Virgin Gorda and enjoyed The Baths.

The villa is fully outfitted and elegant. It is open-air

and the trade winds flowed through. A great deal of

attention has been paid to maximize the glorious

sea views. The decks are many and serve both sun

bathing and nightly star-gazing.

This villa-estate appealed to us due to its privacy,

location and amenities. It is an opportunity to

experience the serenity of an island that is still lush

and quiet.

I had the Pleasure of staying at this villa over the New Year Holiday. As good as the photos are, they really don't convey the beauty of this place. The location is ideal. While on the island, you have your own quiet, peaceful corner of the world. However, within 15 minutes you can be at a restaurant, nightclub, or a beach. I can't wait to go back!

A brand new villa that's beyond compare. I had the

good fortune to attend a wedding here and the

views are truly spectacular. The architecture is

dramatic with sweeping curves and arched doors

and windows. Three closely connected buildings on

the compound afford both privacy and intimacy.

This lovely residence is heaven on earth!
