An enchanting five-bedroom Caribbean villa perched on a gentle hillside above beautiful Leverick Bay on the peaceful island of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands; Coconut Grove is only a stone's throw from a phenomenal snorkeling beach. This poolside villa is ideal for couples, family reunions, weddings and receptions.
The entrance to beautiful Coconut Grove is through a harem of coconut palms and tropical gardens. Colourful Caribbean flora and fauna also surround the tanning area and large fresh water swimming pool, complete with submerged seating, lighting and pool floats. Comfortable chaise lounges adorn the Oklahoma stone decks surrounding the partially raised pool edge. The alfresco bar, complete with a second full size refrigerator/freezer, sink, glasses and beach coolers, is ideal for dinner parties and convenient to the pool and the large gas BBQ grill.
Inside the villa, the spacious Great Room with dramatic cathedral ceiling and captivating views invite you to lounge in comfort. For great BBQs and dinner parties you'll enjoy the modern well-equipped gourmet kitchen with centre island and indoor dining area that comfortably seats 10-14. The living area doubles as an entertainment area, with a large colour Cable TV complete with movie channels, VCR, DVD and stereo system. Movie and music libraries are provided along with a library of novels and magazines, games, cards and puzzles. A powder room is conveniently located just off the Great Room.
Sliding glass doors on three sides of the Great Room invite you to the outside covered patio lounging and dining areas where delightful tradewinds and spectacular views of the North Sound and Caribbean Sea leave you in awe. Ceiling fans are abundant throughout Coconut Grove and no exception has been made for the outside covered dining area where seating is provided for 10-12 dining guests. Additional patio furniture provides grouped seating for guests on all decks. The hammock, swinging in harmony with the cooling breeze, gives guests a chance to read, reflect on the day or just plain snooze. The pool table and Pro Form exercise machine offer hours of pure enjoyment day and night, rain or shine.
All five bedrooms are equal in size and feature king size beds, bathrooms, en-suite closets, air-conditioning, ceiling fans, phone, colour Cable TV, alarm clock, safe and private balconies. Comfortable balcony furniture allows quiet times for watching the sun rise or writing post cards. The main floor is wheelchair friendly and consists of three bedrooms decorated in relaxing tones of cool greens and sandy beiges, highlighted with a stylish blend of wicker and antiques. Two additional bedrooms are accessed via a spiral staircase from the Great Room to the lower level hallway, which facilitates the DSL connection port and computer plus the pathway down to the nearby beach. An upper and one lower bedroom suite each offer trundle beds for up to 4 additional guests.
We've been fortunate enough to stay at the Coconut Grove Villa more than once, and each stay was absolutely outstanding. The villa itself is superb with 5 spacious bedrooms each having a full bath; A/C; TV; beautiful and COMFORTABLE furnishings; and convenient extras such as hair dryers and lighted make-up mirrors. The living and kitchen area is also simply gorgeous and well appointed, again with just lovely and COMFORTABLE furnishings. The kitchen has every appliance and gadget you could ever need. And my favorite, the fridge even included an ice maker! This area is surrounded by sliding doors that allow the Caribbean breeze to flow throughout keeping us all cool and refreshed. The outside covered area of this villa is the perfect place to enjoy beautiful views of the Caribbean; enjoy lunch; nap in the hammock ; and my favorite, mix up a nice drink in the outside wetbar which includes a full size fridge also. We spent most of our time in the outside area enjoying the views; catching some sun in the loung chairs; and hanging out in the fabulous pool! The pool was everyone's favorite feature! We were in the pool every afternoon and evening, it was awesome! The outside area is also perfectly landscaped with beautiful flowers, shrubs and gorgeous stonework.
But, the best feature of the Coconut Grove Villa, is its owner. (The instructions say to exclude names in the review, so I'm not including a name.). She was so very awesome! She answered all of our questions before, during and after our stay. She had the villa provisioned for us upon arrival; offered to meet us at the ferry dock upon arrival; helped us with the logistics of the flight and ferry schedules; and was as close as a phone call to handle any other questions we had. Again, she was and is so awesome! She made our stay so perfect the first time, that this last time I was more excited to come back to the Coconut Grove Villa, than I was to come back to Virgin Gorda! Someone would ask me where we were going this year and I would say back to Coconut Grove! But of course, Virgin Gorda is awesome too. The beaches and views on VG are stunning; the people are so nice; and Coconut Grove Villa is the best villa to enjoy all that VG has to offer. We can't wait until we have another opportunity to stay at Coconut Grove. My words here can't fully describe how much we enjoy this villa or how much we appreciate its owner for all of her efforts in making our stay there so very perfect.
