Here’s What Our Guests Have to Say

From the moment we arrived, the setting and the accommodations at On the Rocks took our breath away. We had just come off of a couple of months of frenzied activity and needed a chance to unwind. Everything about the setting: from the beautiful views from the terrace as we breakfasted outdoors, to the glorious sunsets as we relaxed after a day of exploring the beaches, or hiking or snorkeling or boating, was perfect. We relaxed and enjoyed cooking in the spacious kitchen and eating out at convenient restaurants. We would highly recommend this lovely villa as the perfect place to feel pampered. The bedrooms were spacious and cool, the bathrooms huge and beautifully appointed. The housekeeping service was wonderful! We left for our activities and returned to a clean, fully serviced villa, replete with fresh flowers. At the end of the week, we relaxed with a cocktail and happily relived the vacation in our minds…we couldn’t come up with one thing we would change!

After a girlfriends week in Virgin Gorda, we are convinced that On the Rocks has the best location (near the Baths), the most beautiful views, a lovely feeling of privacy and is the most luxurious yet comfortable accomodations available on Virgin Gorda. It is a beautiful and magical place to stay.

Every detail of the accomodations and lush and private grounds are exquisite yet comfortable, the beach (1 minute away) is is famously beautiful; we had a magical time and would return to On the Rocks in a heartbeat.

My stay at On the Rocks was way beyond my expectations. You simply can not beat the view of Tortola from the the patio at sunset, chilled beverage in hand of course! To be surrounded by the elegance of this exquisite island, gave my visit a dream-like quality. The attention to details throughout the home is unparalled. From the beautifully designed bedroom suites to the sound of water off a boulder into the bouganvilla encircled pool, I felt more relaxed and rejuvenated with each day. The outdoor shower expericence is not to be missed after a dip in the crystal clear water of the white sand beach a stone’s throw from the home. If you are lucky enough to visit, you will find this memory lingering for a very long time in your mind ~ I can’t wait to return.

It’s interesting how different villas are in the BVI’s vs USVI’s… I say this because On The Rocks was simple, yet elegant. Nothing flashy, but a well furnished, well built, well appointed villa with lots of land and a focus on SERVICE. I was impressed with how simple and understated the decor was, but more impressed with the sturdiness and overall quality. The bedrooms were all very nice. The 2 master rooms were much larger than the photos imply . The pool and pool area were excellent. Some of the best we’ve stayed. It’s large enough to fit everyone and not too small to be unusable (an unfortunate attribute of some villas).I think the best part was the proximity of the ocean. The “short walk to the beach” was truly a short walk. It took no time to get there and it was a “to die for” location for romantic walks or relaxing on the sand with friends and music.

Gene C. Atlanta, GA
Wow! One of the best weeks of my entire life. The beach is amazing, the pool is wonderful and the beds are WAY comfy! Hopefully I’ll be able to visit again soon.

My wife and I, along with our 17 year old daughter, 13 year old son, and my daughter’s friend just returned from a week stay at On The Rocks villa in Virgin Gorda. Words cannot describe how perfect this home was for our vacation. The Villa is Magnificent! Unfortunately, we do not get to travel every year like we wish, but have stayed in several villas on St. Barth’s as well as St. John. When we do, the one thing I insist on is nice accommodations. On The Rocks, is our favorite villa vacation so far! Starting with the reservation, which we booked directly with the owner through VRBO, all the way to departure, the service was top notch! This was our first time to Virgin Gorda, so the owner and his property manager were extremely helpful in every aspect of planning our vacation. They recommended restaurants, grocery, activities, etc. so we felt completely at peace from the time we arrived on the island. Then we arrive at the villa itself! On The Rocks is spectacular inside and out. The design, the furnishings and decor, the view all portray the same theme….Comfortable Elegance! Every detail is covered, exceptional appliances, a fabulous custom built in charcoal grill ( which was perfect for a father’s day cookout), a cozy hammock, dreamy bedding, four outdoor showers, a refreshing pool, and the list goes on and on. The location on the island I found to be unbeatable. 5 minutes one way and you were at the Harbour and town. 3 minutes the other, and you were at The Baths. But most importantly, was a small walk about 100 yards to the most fabulous beach I have been on. Most of the week, our family were the only ones on Little Trunk Bay. The snorkeling among the boulders was awesome. Sitting in the beach chairs watching the sunset with a cold drink in hand, the perfect end to a perfect day. Other islands I visited required a 10 to 15 minute drive to such a beach, but here at On The Rocks, it was a easy short walk. We found ourselves wanting to stay there, rather than drive to the other beaches on Virgin Gorda. If you desire to stay at a top notch Villa, with quality furnishings and comfort, a perfect location, and exceptional service, then you must try On The Rocks! It will exceed your expectations I guarantee, as it did mine. Please feel free to message me about this Villa and I will be glad to share any info I have. Its not a question of if we will return, just how quickly!! Thank you “On The Rocks” for sharing your wonderful home!

Our Experience at On the Rocks was truly magical. On the Rocks is nothing short of a creative masterpiece. What truly set On the Rocks apart was the apparent attention to details. We wanted for nothing. Thank you to Bernadette and Agatha for taking car of our every need during our stay. We cannot wait to come back!

I’ve been to virgin Gorda many times and this is the nicest home I’ve stayed in. Love the view, the snorkeling, the short walk to the beach and the great sunsets.

It was barefoot comfort with white linen luxury. One of the best vacations we have had.

Steve and Lilly V: Atlanta, GA
On the Rocks was so much more than we ever expected. The main house and the villas are furnished beautifully with incredible artwork, furnishings and accessories. The gourmet kitchen was a dream. The views were spectacular and the beach almost private. It was a week in paradise and the nicest home we’ve stayed in on the island. We’ll be back!

Pam and Ben S: Ann Arbor, MI
On the Rocks Villa was fantastic. The villa and grounds are stunningly beautiful and very relaxing! Walk a couple of minutes and you find a pristine, quiet beach among giant rocks. The sunset view is the best on the island!

Gretchen A. Mpls.,Mn
Never before have my husband and I so completely relaxed on a vacation! The views just made you melt. The home was inviting and lovely. We spent each day in our suits…floating in either the pool or the beach enjoying the views in the water. We managed some beautiful walks and some tennis. Actually our best day was spent snorkeling with our friends and exploring on a boat…visiting different islands. What a place! I hope I dream about it again tonight!

Claudia and Doug from Minneapolis
There is no end to the superlatives to describe ON the Rocks. We loved every minute of our stay here in this beautiful home. We will be back for the third time!!

Roberta L. , Boulder Co.
“The impeccable attention to detail, elegant without being staid. The views are beyond spectacular. We could have stayed forever. I don’t think there is a more beautiful beach in the world… and it’s private”

Kathy and Jack, Palm Springs, Ca
We all loved the snorkeling, relaxing etc… Your home was perfect, so tastefully decorated- loved the fabrics and fixtures! We loved every minute and hope we will be lucky enough to return someday.

Jim , Julie and Family, Leawood, Kansas.
On The Rocks- What a unique but very appropriate name! We had many “On the Rocks” while enjoying this most magnificent view and luxuries surroundings.Reading, snorkeling, touring, and totally relaxing were the orders of the days. Too bad we have to leave this paradise and return to the snowy north.”

The Torkvei’s, Toronto, Canada
Our third trip to the island and by far the most memorable. We were celebrating a 20th wedding anniversary and your beautiful spot on the island made it perfect.

Steve and Rhonda S.
Staying at On the Rocks was on of the best decisions our family has made. We have been to high end resorts and rustic villas, but no vacation experience could top our stay in Virgin Gorda. On the Rocks has the perfect blend of convenience , escape, quality , and adventure. The beach is amazing, the kitchen layout is a cooks dream, the outdoor showers are blissful, and the beds are beyond comfortable. It’s impossible to describe just how enchanting On the Rocks is and we will keep dreaming about it until we can go back!

The Best house on the Best Island and the beach is to die for!! Simply paradise.
