A very special private waterfront Virgin Gorda villa on its own private peninsula, this 6-bedroom home sits at the end of Mattie Point, with water on three sides and Gorda Peak behind. South Sound is a spectacular secluded area of Virgin Gorda, where you hear the waves breaking on the reef and your neighbors are pelicans, turtles and fish. To one side you'll see the Hurricane Hole and to the other is Great Hill. On the far side of Great Hill are fun places to visit such as Biras Creek, Saba Rock, and Bitter End Yacht Club, all on Virgin Gorda. Swim in the infinity edge pool overlooking the sound or snorkel off the private dock to some of the best underwater viewing on the island of Virgin Gorda. If you're a little more adventuresome, take the villa's rubber dinghy out to the 5000' reef for more snorkeling fun or motor over to the Hurricane Hole for exploration. Thrill seekers may even want to try out the villa sailboard on South Sound. The Main House: This Virgin Gorda rental vacation villa has been designed to let the ocean breezes and sunlight surround you. The Mexican clay tile main floor is a free flowing area, including a living room with a built-in CD entertainment system, dining room and fully equipped kitchen with a seating bar for drinks. Double French doors along both front and back of the villa open to beautiful ocean views of Virgin Gorda. A 12 foot wide covered front deck stretching the entire length of the house is a great place for a casual lunch, a romantic candlelit dinner or your afternoon nap in the hammock or chaise. The 8 foot wide garden deck, with propane BBQ, will give you all the sun you want. Even the main floor bathroom extends into the outdoors, through sliding glass doors to the glass block enclosed double shower. The U-shaped kitchen is equipped with a large side-by-side ice maker refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, and electric self cleaning range. A complete set of kitchen utensils, small appliances and cookware is provided as well as glasses/dinnerware for 16. We also maintain a large selection of spices and basic condiments/supplies for your use. Upstairs, you will find two bright and cheery bedrooms with walk-in closets, seating for two and overhead fans. One bedroom has a king size pillow top bed, and the other has two twins. The bathroom's oversized shower has two sliding windows, which can be recessed into the wall, providing a great view of South Sound and the mountains of Virgin Gorda that surround it. A bridge, open to the first floor, connects the bedrooms. Extra guests can sleep on the queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The Pool The horizon edge 12,000 gallon pool is 5ft to 8ft deep with its own rock waterfall and lots of tile decks all overlooking South Sound. The pool deck has 6 chaise lounges and a 50 inch table with four chairs. If you want to lounge near the pool, but be out of the sun, enjoy the additional covered deck, which also has a 50 inch table, four more chairs and an entrance to the lower shower. Enjoy a drink at our covered poolside wet bar. Pool Wing Our pool wing has four more bedrooms and two bathrooms in a separate structure, connected by a bridge to the Main House of the villa and overlooking the pool. The main floor includes the master bedroom area, a second bedroom, a bathroom with a glass block enclosed shower, and a covered verandah with chairs, chaise lounge and tables, overlooking the pool and South Sound. The master bedroom features a sitting area with rattan queen sleeper sofa, love seat and tables, 12 foot glass sliders to the verandah, views of South Sound on three sides and a king size pillow top bed. The second bedroom is furnished with a queen pillow top bed, overlooks the pool and has double French doors opening to the verandah. The pool deck bedroom has a queen pillow top bed, overlooks the pool and deck and connects to the lower level bathroom and shower. The top floor bedroom has a queen size pillow top bed and provides 360 degree views of South Sound and the mountains that surround the villa. Each bedroom has its own closet and accessory seating.</p>...Read more

Once again our stay at South Sound Villa was fantastic! There was a total of 5 of us. We celebrated my daughter's 20th birthday. There are plenty of places to relax by yourself or as a group. The constant ocean breezes and tranquility were amazing. What is listed here on the website about the Villa is exactly what you get, actually the pictures do not do it justice it is better. The views from every room of this villa are just unbelievable. From every room you can hear the ocean and feel the breezes from the ocean as you fall asleep. Wonderful.The caretakers Lynda and Liston are just great she called and stopped in to check on us, and whatever our need they fulfilled. We stayed here last year and were pleasantly surprised at the improvements that were made (it was already perfect), a new refrigerator with ice maker, new kitchen items like silverware etc., repainted, new chair hammock (which everyone loved and was in constant use), new boat and motor, updated sound system and new screens, just to mention a few!! We now have made friends in town with restaurant owners and townspeople. It truly feels like home. We again had 2 locals go into the sound off the dock and catch our dinner-lobsters!! The owner Thornsten could not be nicer he helps with renting your SUV, restaurant recommendations and actually any thing you need. If you are looking to stay in the Virgin Islands this is the only place to stay. We have already booked it for next years vacation.I highly Recommend it to anyone, period!!!
