Virgin Gorda

Island Spice, Nail Bay

Villa description

Dramatically located above the Caribbean Sea, Island Spice treats guests to a memorable vacation. Spend casual hours on the villa’s long, spacious shaded deck with spectacular 180-degree vistas of the Sir Francis Drake Channel and the British Virgin Island chain. S. John, in the USVI, is visible on the far horizon. Enjoy an alfresco lunch while watching sailboats on the sea below. Pelicans, gulls and frigate birds frequently soar overhead. Take a nap in the hammock, and return for evening cocktails as the sun sets below the sea.

Two equal-size bedroom/bathroom suites, furnished in island décor, flank the Great Room and can be accessed separately from the deck. All rooms offer panoramic ocean and garden views through large sliding windows and doors.

Although Island Spice villa is surrounded by the green lush hillside and is exceptionally private, it is only a few minutes walk (or drive) to beautiful Mountain Trunk beach, a great swimming beach for adults and children alike – plus you’ll discover wonderful snorkeling.

Trudi’s personal opinion

Island Spice is a gem; simply breathtaking. It begins the moment you enter the front door – the panoramic ocean views ahead of you might quite literally leave you speechless. And it has the right balance of everything else that you could possibly want. It’s superbly comfortable, well equipped, pristine throughout, private yet within walking distance of the beach – and they haven’t forgot that all-important swaying hammock on the deck.

The bedrooms, situated either side of the Great Room and accessed from the verandah, are lovely, and both have good-size modern bathrooms. The new kitchen, to one side of the Great Room, has all the appliances you would expect from a superior-quality villa.

It’s an ideal property for one or two couples, and also an excellent choice for guests celebrating their honeymoon. My favourite part of it? Actually, there are quite a few, but if I had to choose just one it would have to be the pool. Very inviting, and attractively surrounded by tropical trees and plants, and it really does make you feel like you’re in a jungle. Highly recommended!

    We had a fantastic stay in Virgin Gorda. The villa was perfect for us and I don’t think I’ll ever forget that view. We do hope to return someday and I will be sure to contact you. 

    I wanted to be sure to mention how wonderful it was to have Debbie as our caretaker. While I didn’t ask her for too much assistance, it was nice to know she was just a quick text away. She was so nice to check in on us periodically.

    Great first trip to BVI. Everyone at Best if BVI was a pleasure to work with and had prompt responses during the booking process and stay. Photos do the villa perfect justice, and while we were only there as one couple, this would be a great villa for 2 separate couples as bedrooms are completely private and separate from the living space. Great central location on VG, would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone, especially for the price!

  • BP

    Island Spice was excellent and has everything you need for a holiday, from a relaxing hammock to ample seating on patio. Our favourite part was the incredible view from every room in the house

    The booking process was really straightforward and we were very satisfied with the help provided by Best of BVI.

  • Barb

    Wonderful! Awesome view from every room and layout was perfect for 2 couples. Outside spaces (wrap around porch), pool area and beautiful landscaping made for a beautiful setting and wonderful ocean views. Island Spice exceeded our expectations!

  • AD

    Trudi and the team at BestofBVI were wonderful to work with. From answering all my questions (and I had alot!) to scheduling our taxi, rental car and meeting us on arrival day I felt well cared-for. We had a major flight delay and everyone did their best to rearrange schedules so we didn’t miss valuable vacation time. The villa was way more than we even expected and it was a perfect fit for my family. The villa manager was available by phone all week and incredibly sweet and responsive. We can’t wait to return and are already planning next years trip.

  • AW

    Island Spice is a spacious two-bedroom villa with a full kitchen, and a beautiful large veranda, perfect for a couple or two couples. The view is extraordinary. You won’t want to go anywhere, but when you do leave for dinner at one of the great restaurants, you’ll find the island easy to get around and the people gracious and kind.

  • MM

    Island Spice was excellent, stunning views, best deck ever! It exceeded our expectations, one of our favorite villas rented anywhere. We were very satisfied with Best of BVI and the villa manager was fantastic, always available. Great experience from start to finish. Really enjoyed our time. Very efficient and attentive service.
