Virgin Gorda is considered one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean, making your stay an extraordinary experience.
We have [sic] staying in houses in VG, St Thomas, St Johns about half a dozen times, and this is our favorite spot. Howard and Irma are incredible caretakers, and will help you enjoy the house and all the island has to offer. The little beach just down the yard, is great for rock climbing and collecting sea glass, and the sound of the waves from the upper bedroom is intense. The layout of the home is architectural Digest quality, great views, great pool, beautiful grounds. Planning to go again next year. Plenty of beaches and resorts (Bitter End, Little Dix) to enjoy during the day, easy to reach food market, and we loved grilling and eating outside each evening. Worth it!
We rented Bay House with our teenage son and another couple. We have rented houses several other times in Virgin Gorda and knew Bay House was going to be nice....we were not prepared for the incredible location and beauty of the house. We had planned many adventures but cancelled almost all of them to stay at the house! Irma was such an asset to the house. When told we had wished we had martini glasses, she magically appeared with them! We felt pampered and satisfied during our entire trip. We want to return, as it was one of our best vacations.....ever!
Everything about this place is beyond wonderful. We were attracted by the wonderful modern architecture and completely private location, including a beautiful private beach... and ridiculously gorgeous views of the turquoise ocean from every vantage point. We shopped at the nearby grocery store and cooked wonderful meals all week long, and explored the nearby Mount Gorda as well as The Baths and the Coppermine ruins. All lovely short drives and a couple hour diversion. Would definitely recommend for other couples looking for a little quality relaxation, or families who want to spend some time together as the 3 bedrooms and living/dining room areas are very spacious and accommodating. The property manager was also super helpful and responsive, guiding us on everything from car rentals to ferry schedules and things to do and see on the island.
My wife and I luckily had the Villa to ourselves for a magical 9 days in paradise. It was totally private and approaching our 29th anniversary, found this exquisite Villa had everything we wanted. The Property Managers Irma and Howard were wonderful to deal with and were there for us if needed providing information and support. The pictures cannot do this property justice.
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Bayhouse for a week to celebrate our anniversary in June. Howard took very good care of us from start to finish, from pre-stocking the kitchen, to providing recommendations for catering, sailing charters, and car rental. He even met us at the airport on arrival and departure!
The property was absolutely beautiful - inside and out. Very private with amazing views of the water from every room. The photos on the website accurately reflect the decor and amenities - you will not be disappointed. We were often torn between staying and enjoying the property or venturing out to explore the island. The close proximity to the beach was great and allowed us to do some exploring close to home. It is fairly rocky, so not ideal for snorkeling, but we found there to be plenty of areas ideal for snorkeling within a few minutes drive. The property provides a perfect balance between seclusion and close proximity to points of interest (i.e.restaurants, spa, yacht club, and The Baths). Everything was literally 5-7 minutes away.
I also can not rave enough about Mimi, the caterer that Howard recommended. She completely blew us away with a four-course meal that was by far the best meal we had during our stay on the island. I highly recommend her if you are interested in some extraordinary in-villa dining.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay and would definitely visit again. We generally stay at luxury resorts when we travel, but our experience at Bayhouse has completely changed our perspective on the benefits of staying in a beautifully appointed private villa and having the ability to customize our vacation experience. The only thing that could have made our vacation better was more time!
Howard and Irma will take very good care of you - the personalized service and attention to detail is what you might expect from family and friends. They have thought of everything, so all you have to do is enjoy!
See you next year!
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely place for a week. It was simply gorgeous and very quiet and private. Howard went above and beyond to make sure our stay was easy and seamless, meeting us at the ferry, having his wife pick up our groceries prior to our arrival, and being available by email before, during and after our stay. We are "high maintenance" people that were looking for a place that would meet our expectations - - this fit the bill. I have Never written a review before, despite staying at beautiful places from Paris to Patagonia. We are still talking about the beauty of this place, almost one year later. Just say "Yes!"
We spent a wonderful 8 days on Virgin Gorda for spring break as a family to escape the nasty Chicago winter. With three children and a nanny, the space was perfect. Our youngest child shared a room with the nanny, which worked out fine. The house is beautifully located right on the beach. You can hear the waves and enjoy the sea breeze. There are a few different restaurants a short drive away, as is the marina for scuba diving, or the Baths (a must see location). The property is well maintained and private/secluded. The on property beach is great for walking, but not for swimming. The pool is refreshing and convenient if you just want a lazy day at home. Howard and Irma are fantastic care takers, very knowledgable of the area, and available for any need. The daily maid service was great and allowed us to enjoy vacation and worry less about cleaning/straightening. It was really hard to leave and can't wait to return. As advertised and highly recommended.
