Seeking Seclusion on Virgin Gorda
I’m floating in my infinity pool at the magnificent Villa Aquamare on Mahoe Bay in Virgin Gorda doing some mental math. With room for 12 guests, which of my lucky friends would I invite to fill this incredible and luxurious private 8,000 sq. ft. open air villa if I could?
There are three 5-bedroom villas within Villa Aquamare, three levels high, each decorated in elegant and soothing décor, 400 thread count Frette linens, inviting marble baths with Bulgari amenities, impressive outdoor showers, and breathtaking views of the Sir Francis Drake Channel.
To ensure privacy, as beaches are not private in Virgin Gorda, Villa Aquamare has a Private Beach Park (that is if you feel the need to leave your marvelous enclave.)
It’s time for lunch now and Chetty, my private villa chef is preparing me fresh grilled seasoned mahi mahi and a refreshing fruit salad of juicy mangos. With some of the best private chefs in the Caribbean, you can pre-arrange this service or cook for yourself in the professional gourmet kitchen.
Signature spa treatments are also available in each villa from detoxifying wraps to hot stone massages. Villa Aquamare has a separate Concierge House to provide any service you need including excursions around the British Virgin Islands such as snorkeling at the famous boulder covered Baths or scuba at the Rhone Shipwreck near Norman Island. The villa also provides babysitting services, grocery shopping and daily housekeeping.
It’s an amazing place to enjoy the lifestyle of renting an ultra-luxury villa with all of the conveniences of a small luxury resort. Weekly rates range per week from $15,125 to $30,800 with a 10 night minimum over the peak holiday weeks.
So let’s see, there’d be our good friends, Tonya and Ben and my husband of course, and I’m trying to recall who remembered my birthday this past year…
Getting here: It’s a 40 minute flight from San Juan to Tortola then a 15 minute boat ride to the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour all coordinated by the Villa’s Conciege team.
