We visited Beachside Villas over Christmas/New Years. The Villas are beautiful. The beach is literally private, we rarely saw anyone else. If you are looking for crowds of vacationers this is not the place.
The Villas are clean, open, airy and well appointed. The best part is the Villas are on the beach, 50 paces from the water. The water was calm, clear and shallow.
If you want lots of action, this is not the place. It's at the end of a short road, full of ruts, but who cares, it's a rental car. As you enter the private property and garden areas you'll be very impressed. Also the property is 1/4 mile from one of the larger and busier casinos.
As frequent Caribbean travelers, we look hard for a resort where we would not be one of hundreds competing for a lounge chair on the beach. Beachside Villas cost is 1/2 what we normally pay to rent a yacht and sail the Virgins Islands.
It's tough to find beachside property on a deserted beach at a reasonable price. At Beachside, the airport is right next door. Yes you'll hear the airplanes when you first arrive. If you sleep in a front bedroom you will hear the arrivals at 8:00AM. If you sleep seaside you will barelly hear the planes. By midweek the airplanes were not an issue. Having my own 2 miles of beach, private pool with no crowds well offset the "island hoppers".
