“Beautiful place, difficult to get to”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The island is beautiful, the home is very very isolated w beautiful, magnificent views. The only way to get there VIPs via a I mile long unsaved very pitted spooky road. It's not for everybody

Management Response
10 Nov 2014
The Villa is located in one of the most scenic waterfront locations in a BVI designated marine sanctuary and near one of the last undeveloped landscapes on Virgin Gorda. This means that there are no other villas next door which provides great privacy in a safe, peaceful setting. The unpaved, level, public road to the villa is one mile long through one the last pieces of scenic waterfront traditional farmland in the BVI.

“When can we go back?”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 for a stay in March 2014

An unbelievable slice of heaven. Everything about the stay was better than imagined. The owners helped us learn about what to do before we had even arrived and they have such a high reputation among the locals that they all helped as well. The house is very private making it perfect for traveling with a large group of people. There are many things to do within a short walk or a quick car ride away. Sound Bay allowed members of our party to snorkel while others relaxed by the pool. Overall, the experience was perfect and the only complaint was that we couldn't stay forever!

“5 Stars aren't enough - A true get away”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 for a stay in January 2014

What a break from the New England Winter and crowds. I was very hopeful that this would be a place to relax and just enjoy the quiet, I was not disappointed! The home is truly located in paradise, every view looks out at either the Ocean or the rich mountainous country side of Virgin Gorda. A two minute walk from the house down to the protected South Sound bay allowed me to snorkel daily. If the salt water was too much, being able relax with a drink in the infinity pool was absolutely spectacular. The home is located on its own private road away from any traffic or people, which in turn, allowed the privacy one would want for a getaway. However, just getting in to the car and taking a 5 – 7 minute ride put us in to the center of the Island village where we were just a water taxi ride to the Bitter End and other destination spots on the island. Yes, 5 stars isn’t enough to rate this vacation paradise …

“A Week of Bliss”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I had the wonderful privilege of staying at the Anam Cara Villa for a week with my husband and four other couples. There is absolutely enough room in this grand airy villa for five couples to enjoy each other's company and still find a quiet nook to read, stargaze, do photography, or take a beautiful private beach stroll. Every single accessory in the kitchen and bath/shower areas is top notch. The pool area is grand with many lovely lounges, lush tropical plantings and outstanding water views. During my life I have been fortunate to have traveled to many of the Caribbean islands as far back as 1970. Without a doubt, Virgin Gorda, is the most safe, stable, and pristinely beautiful ( with lovely, friendly locals) of all the gorgeous Caribbean islands. * Best part- The villa is situated so that you feel total privacy and seclusion and yet within a matter of 15-20 minutes are able to reach , by water taxi, world class yacht clubs and enjoy their bars, restaurants and beach amenities.

“Paradise Defined!”
Reviewed 13 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Paradise Defined! Pure and simple – there is nothing better. Having visited and stayed in Virgin Gorda 3 times in the past several years, there is no question that Anam Cara captures the very best of the Island. The privacy, waterfront location, panoramic views, exquisite design features, contemporary appliances, comfortable beds and furniture put this house among the top residences on Virgin Gorda. Just a few minutes around the corner is Leverick Bay and the free water taxi from Gun Creek to The Bitter End Yacht Club where you can cruise over in just a few minutes to enjoy a wonderful and very reasonably priced buffet lunch with unlimited Rum Grog!!

We shared the house with 4 other couples and had a marvelous time enjoying each other's turn cooking dinner for everyone on a designated night and the room to dine together and commiserate about the day's activities. There was ample room throughout the house to spread out yet enjoy private time and space when wanted. The individual en-suites with their own private indoor and outdoor showers provided an unforgetable regal touch and experience.

The constant trade winds directly off the water ensured cooling comfort throughout the day and night as well as preventing any flying insects from invading this slice of paradise – an added bonus of this spectacular location. The large pool with fiber-optic nighttime lighting creates a magical feel that adds an entirely different dimension to the fantastic infinity edge feature that looks out to the open ocean.

If you have never experienced any of the US or British Virgin Islands, and are planning a first time stay, do yourself an enormous favor and reserve an extraordinarily wondrous experience at Anam Cara that will provide an unforgettable lifetime of memories. If you have been to Virgin Gorda and are looking for the perfect location and accommodations, particularly with an extended family or a group of friends – don't pass up the opportunity to indulge yourself at Anam Cara. The only problem – you will want to return again and again.
