A very special private waterfront Virgin Gorda villa for rent on its own private peninsula , this 6-bedroom vacation rental home sits at the end of Mattie Point, with water on three sides and Gorda Peak behind. South Sound is a spectacular secluded area of Virgin Gorda, where you hear the waves breaking on the reef and your neighbors are pelicans, turtles and fish.

On the far side of Great Hill are fun places to visit such as Biras Creek, Saba Rock, and Bitter End Yacht Club, all on Virgin Gorda. Swim in the infinity edge pool overlooking the sound or snorkel, scuba, swim off our private dock to some of the best underwater viewing on the island of Virgin Gorda. If you're a little more adventuresome, take the 12' dinghy or one of our three kayaks out to the 5000 foot reef for more snorkeling fun or motor over to the Hurricane Hole for exploration or go to a private beach. Thrill seekers may even want to try out our kayaks on South Sound.

About Thorsten Cook

Fell in love with the area in the 90's and built the villa over several years finishing in 2004. We continually improve the villa and keep it in top condition.

Thorsten Cook purchased this villa in 2004

Why Thorsten Cook chose British Virgin Islands

Secluded and Private. Lots of room. Waterfront on 3 sides. Private Dock with kayaks, dinghy with outboard and fresh water shower.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Enjoyed a week at the villa, while the owner was there. A new 26" side by side GE refrigerator was installed. Renewed/repaired all the outdoor furniture. Replaced/renewed several screens. Repainted lots of railings/posts. Since my last visit, the furniture inside the living room has been replaced with very colorful units. A new hanging hammock swing for one person. Very relaxing. All of the appliances were checked and a new toaster purchased. There is a new gas outdoor grill. Beach towels and bath towels are always being replaced.

Went out for several relaxing dinners and lots of drinks.

South Sound Villa - Virgin Gorda

  • 5 of 5

We have been fortunate to be able to visit Virgin Gorda 8 times since 1984. The island, with its friendly people, gorgeous views, beautiful beaches, and, of course, the unique Baths, has maintained its slow-paced charm and is our favorite place for family vacations. Now there are 15 of us and South Sound Villa was the perfect spot for us to stay. The 6 bedrooms are located in two wings, so the late risers were separated from the young children in the mornings. The multiple porches and decks allowed those who wanted to be away from the gang for a while to do so. The large living area was an ideal place for everyone to be together. There was something to do for everyone - splashing in the pool, with its double waterfall, kayaking or snorkeling off the dock, exploring the bay in the dinghy, or just finding a quiet place to read. The incredible views from every window and the brilliant rainbows following brief showers were the icing on the cake. The owner, Thorsten Cook, was a pleasure to deal with. We can’t wait to return to Virgin Gorda and South Sound Villa.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were torn between Virgin Gorda and Tortola and were so happy with our decision. The house is everything in the description and more. From the very first contact with Thorsten, everything went smoothly. He patiently answered our questions, booked our rental car and was always available for assistance.

The house is clean and very roomy. We had ample room for our group to spread out. The beds were so comfortable and the location was secluded yet close to everything. Anything you will need is already in the house. We spent hours in the pool and the hammocks.

Our stay was simoly spectacular, and we came home with incredible memories. If you're still searching- look no further. This is the place!

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to south sound and its beginning to feel like home. The house was in perfect condition when we arrived. Mr cook added a new refrigerator and a new boat. The views from the estate are breathtaking. We are starting to get to know the citizens who make us feel like neighbors. It's really hard to describe this property except "heaven on earth". Thanks Mr Cook for another wonderful week. Hope to see you next year!!!!

This was our second time at South Sound Villa and it now seems like home. The views from the estate are breathtaking. The owner added a new refrigerator and a new boat this year. The house was in perfect shape when we arrived.

We are getting to know the people in town who make us feel like part of neighborhood.

Sometimes its hard to describe how beautiful this property really is. The only way I can explain it is "HEAVEN ON EARTH"!!!!!!

Thanks Mr Cook for letting us enjoy this wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

Once again our stay at South Sound Villa was fantastic! There was a total of 5 of us. We celebrated my daughter's 20th birthday. There are plenty of places to relax by yourself or as a group. The constant ocean breezes and tranquility were amazing. What is listed here on the website about the Villa is exactly what you get, actually the pictures do not do it justice it is better. The views from every room of this villa are just unbelievable. From every room you can hear the ocean and feel the breezes from the ocean as you fall asleep. Wonderful.The caretakers Lynda and Liston are just great she called and stopped in to check on us, and whatever our need they fulfilled. We stayed here last year and were pleasantly surprised at the improvements that were made (it was already perfect), a new refrigerator with ice maker, new kitchen items like silverware etc., repainted, new chair hammock (which everyone loved and was in constant use), new boat and motor, updated sound system and new screens, just to mention a few!! We now have made friends in town with restaurant owners and townspeople. It truly feels like home. We again had 2 locals go into the sound off the dock and catch our dinner-LOBSTERS!! The owner Thornsten could not be nicer he helps with renting your SUV, restaurant recommendations and actually any thing you need. If you are looking to stay in the Virgin Islands this is the only place to stay. I HIGHLY Recommend it to anyone, period!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your very kind words about our villa. We try to make improvements and maintain the villa to a high standard. Our goal is to insure that each guest enjoys their time at the villa and tells their friends about the villa. The single seat hammock was such a hit with my grandchildren that 2 of them now have a copy in their home bedrooms. They called me and asked where I had bought it. I was on a vacation to Key West and found a shop who made them. I knew I had to have one for the villa. We hope to see you again next year. Thorsten and Pam

South sound Villa..Is a magnificent location and dream home..cozy, picturesque, private- you will feel like you escaped to your very own island- yet 5 minutes to town and beaches--even take a ferry to the Bitter End just 5 minutes away..Private Villa has a great patio area with pool- so if you done want to explore your private need to- but great knowing you have the very best of both worlds on site!

Well equipped kitchen to do gourmet cooking- or close to top notch restaurants at Leverick bay or Spanish town-Little Dix's..Everything and more is in store for you here- I love it and go twice a year..wish I could go once a month!! Scenerythat belongs in postcards from every view..This is a very special place that awaits!! Done hesitate- call today and pack your bags now!! I am!!
