Simple, Clean, and Comfortable Accommodations with Breathtaking Views
Aqua Vista Villa faces the Atlantic Ocean, north. Our home is located up the mountain where the deck view overlooks Trunk Bay with a breathtaking view of Guana Island, Guana Channel to Great Camanoe. On clear days Anegada is visible on the horizon. Although we are not on the beach you can hear the waves as you lounge on the deck.
Trunk Bay offers an expansive and very private beach that is wonderful for soaking up the sun or taking walks along the shore. During the winter months the wave action can be very powerful and not ideal for swimmers. There are many beaches on the island that are a short drive from the villa and many breathtaking views along the way. You will want to carry your camera. Josiah’s Bay, which you pass on your way from the airport, is known as a surfer beach. Cane Garden Bay is often buzzing with tourists and has lovely swimming and refreshments. A must visit, Virgin Gorda Baths is a one day-trip you won’t want to miss.
The one thing newcomers always comment on are the narrow, winding roads. You will want to rent a 4WD for getting about. Our island is one mountain range so there is no getting around without ‘mountaineering’. Road Town is just a 5 minute hop over the mountain where groceries and other necessities can be picked up. Be mindful to share the road with chickens, cows, and even sheep as you explore the island. If boating is your thing, the Moorings and Nanny Cay are the place to be.
The gardens and deck offer a quiet and peaceful place for guests to spend some much-needed down time. Day trips and exploring the island is exhilarating and the return to the villa is a wonderful place to rest and recharge. There is little noise or traffic as this is a residential area. Parking is available on the landing for those who brave the steep driveway, or you can opt to park at the top.
For accommodation, Aqua Vista Villa is simple, clean, and comfortable. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and private bath with a tiled walk-in shower. The open concept living area has a kitchen with full-sized fridge, stove, and microwave. All the windows face the water view. There is a long daybed/coach under the windows that extends the length of one wall and a breakfast nook in one corner. Ceiling fans in both the bedroom and living area circulate the cool sea breezes in the winter. All rooms are tiled and have a few scattered rugs. Air-conditioning is available for the warmer nights in all rooms, especially during the summer season.
Large sliding glass doors open from the bedroom and the living area onto the unit’s covered patio which offers an uninterrupted panoramic view. Lounging in the large, circular deck bed/coach, listening to the waves as you read your favorite book is a must. If you like to grill, there is also a barbeque and outdoor sink with a small counter on the deck.
There is a stone pathway from the main level of the house to the villa where you have your own entrance. A gravel path continues from the entrance around to the deck and extends down through the front garden to the street below if you are up for morning walks, as we are. The trek back up from the road to the house is not recommended for the unfit. There are rails to secure your walk up the rustic stone stairways for those who don’t mind a climb.
Other amenities include complete bed linen set, bath towels, hand towels, face cloths, beach towels, hair dryer, iron and board, safe, and Wi Fi internet services. Shampoo, conditioner, and soap in the shower are complimentary. There is a 40 inch HD smart TV in bedroom that pulls out from the wall that you can connect your portable devices to to play your favorite movies. Cable or Satellite TV is not provided. There are no gaming devices, so you may want to bring your own laptop or entertainment devices if that is your favorite pastime. There is no washer/dryer in the unit. There is a drying rack for towels and beach clothes. Towels and linens can be washed upon request at an extra charge.
