Review: 5 Stars for On the Rocks (Virgin Gorda BVI)

On the Rocks Dining

5 Stars for “On the Rocks!” We expected a luxurious villa with great views, but we got so much more…we were blown away. Maybe the best description of On the Rocks is perfection. After our week with two other couples we all concluded we had experienced the perfect vacation! Where to begin…the property was exquisite. On the Rocks is nestled amongst the world-famous gigantic boulders of Virgin Gorda and a perfectly manicured Caribbean landscape of shrubs, trees and flowers that made you feel like you have the island to yourself.

Being only a few minute’s walk from the beach was so convenient we did it several times a day. And the beaches were more spectacular than any we had every seen. They were simply remarkable! The central living area was definitely designed for entertaining. The kitchen was perfect for the “group” cooking sessions we shared several times a day. This was open to the living room and dining area, which allowed for all of us to be in the conversation regardless of where we were in the room. We loved the Viking range and all the upscale amenities you would hope to find in a world-class villa. I think our favorite space on the property was the patio.

Every moment we spent there brought new and unique views of Little Trunk Bay, the most desirable location on the island. There were times when we were entertained by groups of yachts racing past our porch deck. Of course we spotted the occasional cruise ship or two crossing our perfectly positioned vantage point. There was never a time when we did not have a view to behold. But mostly we were mesmerized by the natural beauty of the Caribbean blue water and the ever changing conditions of the weather, sunsets, sun rises, and everything in between.

It was very difficult to leave “our glorious view” at the end of the week. The individual bedroom suites were each completely different, yet each one was highly appealing in its own way. I am convinced each couple thought they had the “best” accommodations. We enjoyed the privacy of our suite a few dozen yards’ walk from the shared living area. It was so peaceful and private. We almost forgot we were sharing the property with others. On the Rocks is a vacation villa like no other we have ever experienced. We truly loved it and completely enjoyed our week to its full extent because we had such a great place to share with our friends. We’ll definitely be back soon!
