Anam Cara Villa is Beautiful!
Anam Cara Villa exceeded our expectations once again. We visited before the hurricane and enjoyed ourselves just as much this time. The Villa was perfect for five couples with room for everyone. Whether we wanted to be alone or hang with our friends the space was perfect. It’s well maintained and the kitchen is perfect for cooking. When we wanted to go out to eat there were a number of choices. Levrick Bay was close by and the beach bar is just the same as it was prior to the hurricane. There is plenty to do and The Baths continues to delight! Once again we ate at the (rebuilt)Hog Heaven and also visited Oil Nut Bay for a scrumptious lunch.
I wouldn’t hesitate to return to Anam Cara!
Anam Cara is an absolute beautiful hidden gem!
I escaped the cold winter and stayed here with my family for 10 blissful days in January.
The home was perfect for a large family and had all the amenities you needed.
It's spacious enough with lots of different seating areas and views around the house, perfect for day time siestas or if you simply just want some alone time with a book , or glass of wine. It also has large dinning and communal areas too, perfect for dinners together. If you don't fancy cooking, you can chose from lots of delicious places to dine from in the local town, my personal favourite was a lovely place called "Radas".
The pool area has stunning sea views as well as a bar and BBQ area equipped with speakers for music, it was great being able to enjoy home cooked food at the house, with multiple cooking facilities.
One of my favourite features of this homes, was the night time star gazing! Being on a small island meant very little light pollution at night, I've never seen such bright stars and clear skies before, truly a breathtaking experience had by all the family.
When we weren't enjoying our time at the house , we were off exploring the stunning sights and activities the island had to offer.
I would highly recommend visiting Savannah Bay, a close by beach that is probably now one of my favourites in the world, very beautiful and tranquil, perfect for a swim or sunbathe.
I would also highly recommend The Baths at Devils Bay, more beautiful beaches but with a cool unique small hike through rocks to access. There is also very good snorkelling here!
Anam Cara had the perfect balance of peaceful tranquility and fun time activities! Something for everything to enjoy, would highly recommend!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Anam Cara villa. Thank you for your comments and suggestions, hope you will return to Anam Cara in the future .
Still needs some TLC
Still needs a little TLC. The upstairs bedrooms A/C units were barely working. It was obvious it has been that way for awhile. They put a portable A/C unit 3 nights into our stay. The kitchen table and chairs are very wobbly.
Some furniture that was damaged by hurricane is being reused. You can see the water marks on it.
You can see where things were fixed in a hurry.
Don't plan on using this beach at all. Full of trash debris from hurricane.
Everyone on island was extremely helpful and nice.
A Magical Week for Two Families!
We had an amazing week at Anam Cara!! South Sound is an incredible place to unwind and completely relax. The snorkeling and scuba diving right from the beach in front of the house were the best we found on Virgin Gorda, there were tons of fish, lobsters, sting rays, and anything else you might want to see. We walked from the beach closer to the point where you can see the coral beds from the shore. The house and pool were in immaculate shape. Given that Irma hit the island just 6 months ago, I was amazed. There was no signs of any damage at all to the villa. We cooked most meals at the house and thoroughly enjoyed all of Virgin Gorda. We had 9 people total and had more than enough space and privacy.
Escaped to Paradise
This was my wife and I's 9th trip to the British Virgin Islands, but the first time on Virgin Gorda. We also brought two other families and a total of five teenagers. Hard to imagine a more perfect home base than Anam Cara. The floor plan is perfect for multiple families. None of us ever felt crowded at all. The secret is how their are so many balconies. I lost count, but there were several. My favorite is the front balcony overlooking the South Sound and recipient of constant tradewinds. Spectacular.
The furnishings were nice and even with so many people there, you still had ample privacy to use the three outdoor showers - nice touch which reminds you that you are literally in paradise.
The bonus is that you can literally walk less than 100 feet and put your feet in the ocean. No this isn't the beach you will want to stay, but for a pleasant swim and even some snorkeling, it's great for it's location. Several of us snorkeled out to Conch Point (you can see it from the house). Very doable and the effort is worthwhile as you reach the nearby point and see mountains of conch shells where the fisherman harvest the conch meat and dispose of the shells on the beach. We secretly exported about six spectacular conch shells back to Nashville.
The location is also ideal. We were nervous about the reviews of the driveway, but it was perfectly fine. 7 tenths of a mile of dirt road which was fine with our oversized 12 passenger van. A bit bumpy for the folks in the back, but I volunteered to drive so it was fine. You could be in nearby Leverick or Gun Creek (for ferries to Saba, Bitter End, and Fat Virgin) within 10 minutes of leaving the house.
Savannah Bay which took top honors in our competition for best overall BVI Beach is right at a 20 minute drive. Hogs Heaven (best ribs in the BVI) is less than 15 minutes and The Bath's (best hike) is less than 25 minutes. Best mental escape in the BVI was Saba Rock (Take your favorite beverage of choice along with an order of conch fritters and grab a comfy chair on the beach behind the bar - Absolute paradise watching the kite surfers and day dreaming about being 20 years younger.
Let's see, the only criticism is - hmmmmmm, maybe black out curtains if anyone wants to sleep in. Maybe having a TV in the living room on the main floor. Pretty Dang Nice!
Final point - Andy with BVI Rentals was superb. Met us at the ferry dock, answered all questions!
Christmas atAnam Cara
Our family stayed at Anam Cara for 11 nights over Christmas 2016. Marie was an outstanding host helping us secure a private chef, giving us ideas on boat rentals and dive shops. She was there when we reached out when the power went out on the island - there is a back-up generator so we never missed a beat. The home is stunning and perfectly suited for three couples and children or just large families. The views from the house overlooking Little Bay were mesmerizing. The kitchen was fully appointed in case you want to stay in and cook - we used the grill by the pool often along with the swim up seating and bar. The home has air conditioning in each room which we used mostly in the main part of the house and at nights in our rooms.
There would only be two things that I would say was not what we expected - not big things though. First, The bay is not easy to just walk down and swim in. After you get out 10-15 feet, it is great but you need to get over rocks so bring water shoes. Second, our group seemed to be susceptible to getting bitten on the back patio. However, no one else remarked on this in other reviews so it may have just been our timing.
The house is close to Gun Creek so we took the water taxi over to Saba Rock and Bitter end for dinners. Lunches or just to hang out.
Overall, it is a fantastic place to stay and see Virgin Gorda.
Glad you had such a wonderful time at Anam Cara Villa. The views are great and there is no place like it on the planet to relax and enjoy time with family and friends! Hope we see you again soon for another vacation.
