"Great holiday destination"
Been lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay twice here and hope to go back again soon. Superbly located in quiet area but close to lovely beaches. very relaxing place to spend a few weeks in the sun... highly recommended.
We spent four awesome days at the Fat Chance Cottage and had a wonderful time. The Property manager is available at a moments notice should you need anything. This two bedroom, two bath cottage is located about 500 feet from the Baths and Devils Bay. It is also very close to Spring Bay. Al three bays have boulders to climb on and awesome ponds for snorkeling. The Cottage has a fully equipt kitchen and a gas grill for your use. There is a plunge pool in the back yard which was nice to cool down with after a day out at the beach. The Plunge pool is 2' x 3' about 2' deep. It's not for swimming...but is nice to cool off with. The house has many books in its library and games and cards for you to play. The livingroom furniture is new and the house is very clean. The outdoor showers are wonderful. If you are an early bird, you can enjoy the sunrise from top deck. There are boulders in the backyard which provide shade and trails for kids to enjoy. My teenagers really enjoyed them. Every room has a ceiling fan and there is one additional fan in the house. The only issue we had was that there is not air conditioning. We were not in the house during the day so this was not a problem. One night was very hot, but the other nights there was a breeze which cooled the house down. This house is great if you are on a budget or want to be close to the Baths. It is also close to Mad Dogs and Top of the Baths Restaurants. Top of the Baths is over priced but the food is very good. Our favorite place to eat was Mermaid's which is on the dock of the bay, about a mile away. The food is fantastic and the view is awesome. I highly recommend you rent a car on Virgin Gorda as there are so many places to see such as the Coppermines. We rented through Mahogany Car Rentals. We loved this cottage and are making plans to return in the future.
"happy, happy week"
This is Caribbean heaven. Not chi chi and shiny and swanky but totally charming, comfortable and would thoroughly recommend staying there. The journey to get there is quite a schlep but when you get there the stresses of the journey will melt away in seconds. The water and beaches are like nothing else on earth. We had a very relaxing stay of not doing much but if you are the sort that likes watersports, there is plenty to do to keep you occupied. I could have stayed there for at least 3 weeks - the slowdown in pace of life from London was like tonic for the soul. The house has amazing outside spaces for dinner and I found myself gettng up very early to watch sunrise from the sundeck - quiet moments and memories that I treasure.
Peaceful and relaxing, good facilities
This is a lovely property located really well just a short walk from Spring Bay. The house is clean and comfortable with a nice outside dining area to barbeque and relax in the evening. Spring Bay is 5 mins walk, lovely beach and swimming
Virgin Gorda is the most peaceful, beautiful and magical Island with incredible beaches - there is so much to do and see, or you can simply sip cocktails, read books and completely switch off. This property is the perfect house to rent...tastefully decorated, fantastic views, seconds from the beach and has everything one needs for a special and memorable holiday. I loved it so much, I have booked the house again for November this year!
