Experience Virgin Gorda’s famed beaches and boulders at Sol y Sombra. Located near the enchanting rock formations at The Baths, the gated villa is set on a beach where kids can climb and adults can snorkel or kayak. Four bedrooms spread across multiple pavilions offer luxurious, private accommodations, and a tennis court, gym and pool are hotel-worthy perks.
If you’ve come to Sol y Sombra to play, you’ll love the infinity pool, pool toys, life jackets and flotation devices, ocean kayaks and snorkeling equipment. There’s a basketball hoop and even racquets to use on the tennis court if you haven’t brought your own. A fitness room means you can keep up with your routine, and a home theater with pull-down screen is the place to be for evening entertainment. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, enjoy the ocean views from the hammocks on the pergola or the outdoor dining area with grill. For convenience, there’s an office, DSL Internet access, a portable crib and an automatic generator.
Thai-style pavilions with high ceilings and folding glass walls and coralstone flooring inside and out make the villa’s living areas breezy and open. In the living room, carved teak furniture and rich red and white upholstery are elegant and sophisticated, and the dining room’s Persian-style rug brings a formal touch to dinners with ocean views. The gourmet kitchen is well-equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, a wet bar and a wine cooler.
Each of the four bedrooms at Sol y Sombra has an en-suite bathroom and air conditioning. The master bedroom has a king bed, walk-in closet, mini-fridge, outdoor shower and its own covered veranda. There’s also one bedroom with a queen bed and mini-fridge, and one bedroom with two twin beds and a mini-fridge. In the separate Tennis Suite pavilion, you’ll find a bedroom with a king bed, sitting room, kitchenette and veranda; larger groups can use two twin day beds in the sitting room for additional accommodations.
The villa has views both across the bay and of The Baths. Since the beach directly in front of Sol y Sombra is dotted with Virgin Gorda’s characteristic large, smooth boulders, guests may want to explore the two nearby white-sand beaches, including Little Trunk Bay Beach.

After much research and looking at photos of our selected villa, Sol Y Sombra for months before traveling I thought I had a good idea of what to expect on our family vacation. We arrived by boat and were greeted at the dock right on schedule. As we approached our villa, the intriguing driveway in itself was so beautiful. We were escorted through the first gated entry and immediately embraced by the charm and beauty this villa has to offer. Words cannot describe the first time we saw the breathtaking view as we came down the stairs into the main living area. We finished our tour and became acquanted with our home away from home, and this was the beginning of a vacation experience beyond every expectation. The one or two minor bumps that any family of 7 could have while traveling paled in comparison to the beauty, relaxation, and fun we had during our stay at Sol Y Sombra! - Donna S., New Jersey, USA

The villa was as good or better than expected. The staff was very pleasant to deal with and very accommodating. We loved the beach and The Baths being so close. A very good experience. - Pamela W., North Carolina, USA
