My boyfriend and I are avid travelers and do tons of research on TA before making our final reservations. For our vacation last March (2010) we split our time between Virgin Gorda and St. John, USVI. Virgin Gorda is the epitome of a private vacation. Very few tourists were on the island and the vibe is very low key. I highly recommend Guavaberry and the Spanish town side of the island for its convenience to the market, good restaurants, Baths, etc.
We arrived late on the fast ferry from Tortola and we had a driver waiting for us at the harbor. We rented a car starting the following morning, which I suggest you do if you want to see the other parts of the island on your own time. It was pretty affordable, Guavaberry made the arrangements beforehand, and it was dropped off at our house.
Commissary was great, well stocked, priced right and had almost everything we were looking for (the other couple items we got in the market right beside the harbor). Internet available in main building, along with lots of board games/books that you can sign out (it did rain on/off a couple days). Our hut had a small space for our car and the kitchen was stocked with all cookware/utensils.
Our hut was higher on the hillside but we enjoyed the breeze and short walk to Spring Bay beach every day. Awesome boulders, awesome views, great beach and location. We are in our mid 20s and found this place to be an amazing time out before going to more touristy St. John.
