CEDAR HOUSE - 3 BR - HILLTOP - VEHICLE INCLUDED WITH RENTAL!

Virgin Gorda House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms , 2 full Baths (Sleeps 9)

Our Cedar House sits atop a 3-acre private hill in The Valley area of Virgin Gorda. This 20'X70' home has three spacious bedrooms for up to nine people. Together with our Boulder House (see separate listing), the Cedar House fills a unique niche in Virgin Gorda vacation rentals. If you do not require a private pool and luxury accommodations, we hope you will give us a serious look. Our homes provide simple, clean, and pleasant accommodations for those seeking value for their vacation dollar. You receive the added benefit of free use of a vehicle with your house rental, so that you have easy access to any of Virgin Gorda''s 10 best beaches (all within 5 minutes drive), including The Baths.

For additional space for larger or smaller numbers, please consider our 2-bedroom Boulder House (HomeAway Rental # 217637), sleeping 4-5.

The house is well equipped, as a family home should be, with a complete kitchen (many condiments available so you won't have to buy them all), Wi-Fi and wired DSL internet access (bring your laptop), ample beach and bath towels, cable TV, with DVD player, plus a CD player.

During the recent recession, many vacation rentals have suffered significantly. However, our Cedar House, and the accompanying Boulder House have remained heavily booked at certain times of the year because of our unique qualities. Many of our guests return regularly - some for as many as the past 30 years - and think of us as their 'second home'. We hope you will consider us. Visit our website for the history of our homes and much more information. We'd love our second home to become yours as well!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Judy,

Sorry it has taken so long to reply, life has been hectic again since we arrived home. However the holiday was everything we could have hoped for and more.

Firstly being kindly picked up by Irma, meeting the wonderful Shirley who was so helpful and kind to us. The house is amazing, the louvre windows were my favourite part. We had the most wonderful relaxing much needed family time together, our favourite beach was Savannah Bay, which we had to ourselves it seemed! The car was great fun, we all took turns in sitting on the back seat, a rare treat these days. Basically we cannot fault anything and are so grateful that you have opened up your family retreat for others like ourselves to experience. We will never forget our holiday to Virgin Gorda. Thank you so much.

Catherine and James

Hunter Homes Ltd. had its beginning in 1970 before paved roads and electricity came to Virgin Gorda. Our father/grandfather, David Hunter, purchased a three-acre goat pasture hilltop and began construction of the Cedar House. Construction of the Boulder House followed in 1982, and in 1992, ownership of the houses, and the rental business, passed to his four children. We have maintained and managed the property ever since and love sharing our second home with others. When you contact us, you are dealing with us, the owners, not a rental corporation dealing with many properties. We will take the time to answer your questions and be sure we are meeting your vacation needs and expectations. We hope to hear from you. Steve Hunter - Manager and Rental Agent

A great family get-away

  • 4 of 5
Our family of 7 had a great time staying at the Cedar House for spring break 2014. We have 5 kids ages 10-18. There were more than enough beds for our large family. We very much appreciated the use of the Ford Ranger pick-up. The villa is not fancy, but comfy. It is a "cottage" type of place. It is in a beautiful setting with a beautiful view.
The house comes with wireless internet, a small TV, several coolers, several very nice beach chairs, condiments, lots of cookware, a few sets of masks/snorkels and did I mention a vehicle!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time on VG!

Spectacular Views and Best Value on the island

  • 5 of 5
This is our third time staying at the Cedar House and it is delightful. The house is well appointed with all the basics, has a lovely living dining area but the best is the deck and the amazing views. This is a family home that is steeped in the history of the island, having been built by Steve's grandfather, the Reverend Hunter. When you tell the immigration official at the airport that you are staying at the Hunter homes, you get a knowing smile. Steve and Madeleine are terrific hosts and well versed in the island's hidden treasures, whether it's Hog Heaven (best views of the North Sound and a mean rum punch), the local hot spots and our favorite beaches. The house comes with the use of a new truck which makes hitting all the beaches a breeze. If you are looking for that comfortable family home, amid the locals, this place is for you.

First trip to Virgin Gorda was Heaven!

  • 5 of 5
Hey gang,
This was our first trip to the BVI's. My wife found Hunter Homes (Cedar and Boulder Houses) on VRBO and gravitated towards these initially b/s they include use of a vehicle. After reading the property descriptions and viewing pictures, we were sold. We stayed in the Cedar House. The Ford Ranger is BRAND New...it was awesome. This home is a shining example of old-school charm and functionality in a beach house. All-cedar (floor to ceiling), more sleeping room than you can shake a stick at, and has louvered-screened windows around the entire house...all 4 sides. With the constant trade winds, this makes for absolute relaxing comfort. The breezes at night were enchanting. ***We really can't emphasize this louvered aspect enough*** The views out the front are incredible, as are those out the back of the house. We were basically in awe every morning. We traveled the whole island over the first 2 days and quickly realized that this house is perfectly located. THE best beaches (Spring Bay-Trunk Bay and Savanna Bay) were around 5 minutes away as are the grocery stores. The owner is super-easy to deal with and very helpful, as are his on-island staff. The staff (Howard or Erma) meet you at the dock with the truck, take you back to the house and get you settled in, and are available thru-out your stay to answer questions. We've been to many other Caribbean locals, and this was our favorite so far. We will be coming back to VG, and we will stay with the Hunter's again without doubt!!!

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent a wonderful and relaxing week at the Cedar House. The location is perfect, the views stunning and the daily visits from Shirley were very much appreciated, it is such a treat to be pampered! The truck was new and got us to every nook and crannie of this lovely little island. There is a wonderfull sense of history in this home and we only regret that we could not fill it with family and friends because it was designed to accomodate a crowd comfortably. The owner, on island manager and housekeeper were easily accessible and eager to help make your stay memorable, we hope to return soon.

Beautiful Views, Great Accomodations

  • 5 of 5
We loved our visit to the Hunter Homes and the beautiful island of Virgin Gorda. You have thought of everything. We rented both the Cedar House and Boulder House for 10 of us and there was plenty of room. It was so convenient to have the two vehicles and two houses side-by-side. Howard met us at the ferry and things went very smoothly from there. Shirley was great and a good resource of information. The views were spectacular and the location was very convenient.

I recall that you booked both houses 10 months ahead, and had been looking forward eagerly to your trip all these months. I'm glad your stay with us was as good as you'd hoped. We hope you'll return some day...

Great time at cedar house.

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time. We really enjoyed the house and property. Its on a big lot and you have lots of privacy. No neighbors or houses right next to you. The toaster died one morning, but
the toaster oven worked just as well. Beautiful views and the breeze was
great. Your close to all or the nice beachs and town. Always seemed like it was just the right temperature
