Surfside Gardens is only a two minute walk to Cooten Bay with it's fabulous north shore surf break and it's rugged pebble beach A short surfboard paddle around the headland each side of Cooten Bay, a five minute drive or decent hike will take you to the delightful sandy beaches of Lava Flow to the West and Josiah's Bay to the East. There are just eight owner-occupied bespoke and individually designed homes on the entire Cooten Bay hillside, each on approximately one acre of land, which guarantees a secluded secret retreat even though you are only a ten minute drive away from the capital Road Town. Surfside Gardens is the lowest property on the hill and the closest to Cooten Bay ruins and ocean. Surfside Gardens is in the unique position on the Cooten Bay private Estate of being next to a completely undeveloped hillside to the east as can be seen in the beautiful aerial photos. The standby generator will kick in automatically if there is a power outage, so there's no need for guests to worry that they won't have power. More

Thanks for your lovely review Eddie, glad you loved the tree house. It's pretty rustic but guests have been known to sleep out there in preference to being in the house! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

About the neighbourhood
Cooten Bay Beach This British Virgin Island beach sets the standard for the surf beaches around the world – a short paddle out from the shore on your surf or boogie board gets you the very best of left hand beach break you can imagine – and likely you might be the only person surfing. Cooten Bay Ruin The Cooten Bay ruins, which touch the coastline, are a three minute walk from your cottage down a empty stream bed just a few hundred feet long. The quite spectacular ruins date from the sugar plantation era, abandoned during the economic collapse of the British Virgin Islands during the mid-19th century, when many plantations were abandoned. You can spend hours down here exploring in tune with the rolling surf nearby. Lava Flow Beach A short paddle around the headland, a five minu...
Getting around
To get the best out of your visit we strongly recommend that you hire a car, preferably a 4 wheel drive vehicle. The car hire company that we recommend will leave the car where you arrive, either at the ferry-dock or the airport and you can leave the car there when you depart, all at no extra charge. On your arrival, we will meet you at a convenient meeting point, like the supermarket and escort you to the property.
