Overview

Peter Bay Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 1 Bedroom, 1 Baths, (Sleeps 2) wrap around decks.

Seagrape Cottage offers guests a truly exotic and intimate getaway. Located on the water’s edge off the beach of Little Thatch Island, Sea Grape Cottage is the only rental villa on the island ensuring a truly private Caribbean vacation opportunity.

Seagrape Cottage is accessed from the waters edge on to the dining deck, or along a shell-strewn path into a small walled garden - complete privacy is assured. There are stunning views across the sparkling sea to Great Thatch, Yost Van Dyke and the most western tip of Tortola.

It is built in typical West-Indian style: Gingerbread trims a large terra cotta-tiled veranda, which engulfs three sides of the cottage, and a private dining deck built out over the sea with steps leading directly to the shore.

On the inside an open plan interior with brightly colored shuttered doors, leads onto the veranda. The cottage is simply, but very elegantly decorated, terra cotta floors overlaid with rugs, bamboo and rattan furniture, a fully equipped kitchen area, a stunning draped four-poster bed, and a traditionally styled bathroom with a walk-in tiled shower.

Outside, on the capacious wrap around balcony, there are tables and chairs, sun-loungers, and a king-sized hammock which enable guests to enjoy full sun and maximum tanning, or retreat to the shade and enjoy the refreshing sea breezes as they prefer. There is also a covered external cooking area, with a full-sized professional barbecue, grill and cook-top for al fresco meals.

Sea kayaks, sailboats and other water sports equipment are there for your use. The on island staff are available to accommodate your every need. Seagrape Cottage is ideal for honeymooners or a couple wanting to experience a luxury vacation on your own private island.

Absolutely Outstanding

  • 5 of 5
I surprised my wife for her 50th birthday with a 7 day stay at Seagrape Cottage on Little Thatch Island in the BVI. The entire experience was outstanding, in no small part to the island managers, Jon and Katy.

They helped arrange for a private car to pick us up at St. Thomas airport and take us to a small marina at the end of the island where we were met by a private launch. Captain Christopher then took us to West End Tortola where he cleared customs for us before taking us over to Little Thatch Island where we were welcomed at the dock by Jon and Katy's smiling faces. The look on my wives face was priceless when she realized this was our private island paradise for the week.

And paradise it is, the cottage is beautiful, very tastefully furnished and perfectly stocked with wonderful food and drinks customized to our preference via emails back and forth with Jon and Katy leading up to our visit.

Sitting on the deck each morning only feet away from the ocean drinking our morning coffee and watching the sail boats go by and pelicans dive for their breakfast, it doesn't get much better than that. Each day Monica would come and make the bed, clean up and set the dining table on the deck ready for dinner. Katy would call and ask if we needed any provisions, food, drinks, ice etc.

Jon and Katy are so knowledgeable about the area and can tell you where to go and what to see (that is if you can peel yourself away from your private paradise) including restaurants etc., nothing is too much trouble, they are outstanding.

We would go snorkeling right in front of the cottage and saw the most wonderful fish and coral using the provided snorkeling gear, kayak down to the end of the island to look for shells, swim in the clear waters out to the swim dock, or simply relax on the private beach.

In all my years of traveling all over the world and staying in some of the best hotels, I can tell you, we have never felt so relaxed and comfortable as we did at our own island paradise for the week, Seagrape Cottage. We are already counting the days until our next stay, probably our upcoming 30th wedding anniversary.

Simply the best the Caribbean has to offer! Sunsets, private island and a place to celebrate life!

  • 5 of 5
Every year that we mark a milestone anniversary I try to surprise my wife with an incredible vacation. This year I let her do the planning and I don't know how I will ever top our 9 days at Seagrape Cottage.

Pictures and words cannot capture how beautiful and magical time is on this island thanks to Mother Nature and Jon, Katy and the wonderful staff.

Prior to our arrival we sent several emails back and forth to Katy with our requests and likes regarding food and beverages. We also sent our travel info so that Jon could pick us up in Tortola.

After landing in St. Thomas we headed to the ferry dock to catch the next ferry to Tortola's West End. Using public transportation took us about 3.5 hours from landing to setting foot on the island. Most of the time was spent waiting to clear customs into the BVI. On our return, Katy arranged for a private water and land taxi which made the whole process much easier and less time consuming (75 to 90 minutes).

Jon met us after we cleared Customs on Tortola and then loaded our luggage and us onto a RIB for a 5-minute ride to Little Thatch's dock. After unloading my wife and I could feel all the weight of the world being lifted off our shoulders.

Jon took us and our luggage via an all-terrain golf cart to "our" cottage. We were both speechless while Jon showed us around the cottage which offers WIFI, air conditioning, three powerful ceiling fans and views beyond compare.

The outside dining table was set on "our" deck for dinner, which was ready for us whenever we wanted.

After Jon finished explaining life on the island ... we had use of the beach house and the whole beach.

Housekeeping would come ever day to change towels, sheets and clean up in general.

A bottle of our favorite champagne was waiting on ice and after Jon left we toasted our good fortune.

We quickly settled into a routine of breakfast on the patio, a walk to the beach where we either read or swam for hours, lunch back at the cottage and then either back to the beach or on the patio to relax before dinner.

Katy would call every morning and ask if we needed anything and if housekeeping could come within in the hour. EVERY request we had was met with "I will send someone right down with it" ... whether it was swimming noodles or fresh basil from Jon and Katy's garden.

During our 30 years of marriage we spend, on average, two weeks a year in the Caribbean. We both agree that Seagrape Cottage is our paradise!

Honeymoon Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5
Photos do not do little Thatch or Seagrape Cottage justice! We stayed here for our honeymoon and right from the get go Jon and Katy were beyond accommodating in making this a trip of a lifetime, scheduled couples massage on the balcony, the best cuts of meat for dinners, champagne....wine.... the list goes on. If we could give a 10 out of 10 we would give an 11. Jon, Katy and all the staff on the island truly made this a once in a lifetime experience! Can't wait for our anniversary get away, we know where we will be booking!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Chris & Andrea
So pleased to see that you enjoyed yourselves… we loved having you hear and are thrilled to think that your honeymoon was everything you hoped it would be. Fingers crossed you will be tempted to break the habit of not doing the same place twice!
Maybe you should consider it for your 1st Anniversary!
Very best wishes for a long and happy future together.

Perfect Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5
Little Thatch was a wonderful honeymoon destination. The pictures don't do the island justice, and we were more than happy spending several days just relaxing on the beach, swimming, snorkeling, and enjoying the cottage and island. The kitchen and bar were very well stocked, and cooking for ourselves was just as easy as back home. Jon and Katy were incredibly helpful in recommending and organizing off-island activities when we wanted to venture out—they seem to know almost everyone in the area—and the staff was very hospitable and made sure we had no problems getting where we needed to go. Neither of us had been to the BVIs before, and we found it very easy to just go with Jon and Katy's recommendations and trust them to take care of the details; they did not disappoint. They arranged massages at the cottage, a day sail to Virgin Gorda (we ended up getting the whole boat to ourselves, in part because of our connection to Jon and Katy), and dinner at the Sugar Mill on Tortola's north shore; all were fantastic experiences. I would highly recommend Little Thatch to anyone who wants to get away from the rest of the world for a while. It was the perfect mix of seclusion without too much isolation: we had as much privacy as we wanted, but Jon and Katy and their kids were delightful to spend time with when we wanted some company and Tortola is just a few minutes by boat (though you wouldn't know it from the cottage). All in all, it was exactly what we were looking for. Everything far exceeded our expectations, and I couldn't be happier with the whole experience.
