considering Pelican Reef villa

We are three couples in our 50s, and have so far narrowed our villa search down to the Pelican Reef villa. We would appreciate any imput from persons acquainted with the island and any insights about what part of the island is suited for us . We have been looking at the Turks and Caicos as a coral island for its beaches and now want to invistigate Virgin Gorda for its beauty.

Thanks

Pelican Reef is a lovely beachfront villa at Mahoe Bay. The location is great. You are right on a nice beach with some of the best snorkelling on Virgin Gorda! You are also centrally located, being a 10 min. drive to Spanishtown restaurants, beaches, and shopping, and 10 min. drive to the North Sound/Leverick Bay areas. You will have beautiful sunsets from your villa, looking down the Sir Francis Drake Channel. You can't go wrong with Mahoe Bay, Virgin Gorda.

Thanks Yank. The villa appears to be of an older era. Do you know if, in fact, they are well maintained. We wouldn't mind the old island architecture and furnishings as long as its clean and well maintained.

Thanks again Yank.

The villas in Mahoe Bay on Virgin Gorda are all very well maintained. Pelican Reef is about ten years old (one of the younger villas on the island) and was built to a very high standard. The owners and maintenance team have kept everything immaculate. Mahoe Bay villas are booked solid throughout the year and get lots of repeat guests. You will really enjoy Pelican Reef and the beautiful island of Virgin Gorda.

Yank, you are making me think mor and more about choosing Virgin Gorda over Turks and Caicos as our destination next year. The travel seems to be a bit more involved and more expensive. What is the most economical way to get there?

Thanks

There are two basic ways to get to Virgin Gorda: Fly to St. Thomas (STT) and take a direct ferry to Virgin Gorda by Speedy's on Tues., Thurs., or Sats, or take the Fast Ferry from St. Thomas to Road Town and then another ferry to VG. You can also charter a flight from STT to Virgin Gorda (but it's still up in the air whether our airport will be open or not next year). The other way is to fly to San Juan (SJU) and then take another flight from SJU to Beef Island (EIS) and then ferry on the North Sound Express to Virgin Gorda. The SJU/EIS is the more convenient route. Either way usually works out about the same pricewise. I would suggest contacting the Villa Management company for more detailed suggestions for flights, etc. Virgin Gorda Villa Rentals manages Pelican Reef Villa and their phone # is 284-495-7421 or e-mail leverick@surfbvi.com .
