Virgin Gorda

Azure Wish, Nail Bay

Villa description

Clearly influenced by both Balinese and Thai architecture, and with a distinctive high, gabled roof, Azure Wish is an elegant and beautifully appointed villa situated literally just a few feet from the beach on Virgin Gorda’s Nail Bay. It is surrounded by mature landscaping, with tropical coconut palms at the edge of the sand, giving it the feel of a classic desert-island hideaway. The house, ideally positioned to view the best sunsets, can accommodate up to eight adults (plus one or two children) in considerable style and comfort.

Accommodation is over two floors and is fully air conditioned throughout. The lower level features a Great Room, with extensive floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors to two sides. These allow in plenty of relaxing Caribbean light, and also provide spectacular ocean views. This room has a separate living area with comfortable sofa and chairs, a formal dining area and, adjacent to that, a brand new, well-equipped kitchen with stainless-steel appliances, concrete countertops and breakfast bar – an enthusiastic cook’s delight. A convenient half-bathroom is to the rear.

The beach side of the villa has a wraparound deck with relaxing cushioned sofas and chaise lounges and a new L-shape heated swimming pool, perfect at any time for a quick dip to cool off from the Caribbean sun – or again to watch those wonderful sunsets. The pool also features a Kiddie’s Corner ensuring even the youngest guest can enjoy splashing around in safety. The large terrace is an ideal spot for al fresco dining on the rectangular teak table or relaxing on the chaise lounges. Wooden steps lead down to the beach for sunbathing, some spectacular snorkeling in the clear, warm water, or exploring this stretch of turquoise waters in the villa’s own kayaks. There is also a convenient outdoor shower for rinsing off sand.

Upstairs in the main pavilion are two equally sized and exquisitely furnished master bedrooms with spectacular, 20-foot-high beamed ceilings with skylights on all sides. These, like all four of the bedroom suites, have full a/c, but suspended high above each king-size bed is a stylish electric fan to help keep the room cool the more traditional way if preferred. Sumptuous linens and luxurious bathrooms make these suites very inviting, indeed. The bedrooms share a balcony spanning the width of the pavilion, again furnished with comfortably cushioned sofas and enjoying breathtaking 180-degree ocean views with many lush, green islands in the distance.

Back down on the lower floor and located near the villa’s entrance are two further bedrooms, both with king beds although one can be made up as twins if so required. Again both of these bedrooms have impressively high vaulted ceilings, and share a spacious bathroom with a large, glass-enclosed shower.

Trudi’s personal opinion

Azure Wish is in a tranquil and secluded area of Nail Bay, Virgin Gorda. Thoughtfully designed to make full use of the spectacular, 180-degree ocean views, and not least its wonderful sea-level location, this sophisticated and hugely attractive villa is furnished to a very high standard. I love the fact that it doesn’t compromise style over comfort, and also provides numerous areas in which guests can relax in cushioned furnishings. The extra-high vaulted ceilings in the master bedrooms are simply magnificent – I’d go as far as to suggest jaw-dropping – and allow in streams of sunshine through the skylights.

Situated almost literally on the beach, Azure Wish is the perfect choice for a family seeking superior accommodation on Virgin Gorda, or equally for a couple looking for a truly memorable honeymoon or romantic vacation. It is, quite simply, outstanding! One of our favourites in the BVI!

    Outstanding!

    How would you rate the services of the housekeeper/maid?

    Yes, very much

    Yes, the villa is in a great location on Virgin Gorda. Easy to get where ever you want to go on the island.

    We are constantly striving to improve our services so would appreciate any additional comments you wish to make. Were there any questions we could have answered before your trip? What additional information would have been helpful?
    Everything was beyond our expectations at Azure Wish. The beach was great for ‘shelling’ and the waters great for snorkeling (some of the best we’ve seen in the BVI). The home was so comfortable and lacked for nothing – except perhaps a second coffee machine. Our group drank both regular coffee and decaffeinated coffee, so with only 1 coffee maker it was a juggle providing both. Plus if there were a larger crowd, having 2 machines would be ideal.
