Enjoy privacy and luxury without sacrificing convenience at On The Rocks. With four bedrooms and living areas spread out across three pavilions, the villa’s accommodations are perfectly suited to families or groups of friends. Larger groups can rent the nearby Sol y Sombra villa for more room. A location in the Little Trunk Bay community means the beach is just a short walk away, and Spanish Town and The Baths are just a short drive away.
True to its name, the villa is tucked among the island’s characteristic boulders, with outdoor living spaces that wind through the giant rocks. There’s a pool with a waterfall feature, hammocks along the terrace, outdoor sitting and dining areas and a grill, with ocean views to set everything off. Take advantage of the setting with snorkeling equipment, a telescope and binoculars, or relax with the collections of books, games, music and movies, Wi-Fi in the main pavilion and a wet bar.
The terrace’s free-form layout is carried inside to the open-plan living area in the main pavilion, where the living room, dining room and kitchen share a high-ceilinged circular space. A wicker sectional with white upholstery and blue accent pillows has a beachy feel, while the dark-wood dining table and carved chairs have a more traditional Caribbean vibe. The gourmet kitchen features a curved peninsula and stainless steel appliances, including a Wolf range.
Each of the four bedrooms at On The Rocks has a king bed, en-suite bathroom, air conditioning and hairdryer. For privacy, the bedrooms are spread out across the pavilions. Two of the bedrooms have mini-fridges, the third bedroom has a mini-fridge and outdoor shower, and the fourth bedroom has an outdoor shower and private patio nestled into the garden.
Though On The Rocks boasts a private location and ocean views, Little Trunk Bay and Valley Trunk Beach are just over 100 yards away on foot down a paved road. By car, it’s a half-mile drive to The Baths or Spanish Town. On your arrival, you’ll be welcomed by snacks and fruit punch, but car rental and airport transfers can also be arranged at extra cost.

On-the-rocks provided the perfect setting for a relaxed vaction. The facilities were new, clean and everything was in working order. This is one of the few villas which advertise a sunset view that really delivers. Each sundown treated us to remarkable views over the Sir Francis Drake channel. Diving with BVI divers was with small groups and excellent dive staff. If this island had golf it would offer the complete package.\r\n

The location of \"On the Rocks\" is perfect. Close to the Baths, Trunk Bay and the grocery stores. The bathroom/bedroom setup was perfect for eight people. The kitchen facilities were very good - everything you need to cook and serve. The staff was great - the house was clean and they came if needed. The TVs all worked and, as the island lost power while we were there, we were glad to have the generator. They need to do something about the bugs. The open air idea is great for the main rooms, but in May, the bugs were horrible.

"The services Luxury Retreats provided were great.Wwe loved our vacation, we feel like it was a lot of work getting there and wish that had been clearer. Next time we would probably stay on St John or something, but it was wonderful overall. Not having ac in the whole house was tough. The bedrooms were a wonderful retreat but a/c in the main house would have been ideal!"
