Why do we have so many happy and returning guests?

There is so much to love about our exceptionally PRIVATE ESTATE. Our renters love our OCEANFRONT Location overlooking three beaches with its own waterfront patio on the turquoise Caribbean Sea. The HORIZON POOL is the centerpiece of the villa, and from dawn to midnight, you can enjoy floating as you watch the turquoise Caribbean, beautiful sunsets, or starry nights!

There are 5 bedrooms total, and you can choose bedrooms in both buildings.

At A DREAM COME TRUE ESTATE, you'll be drawn to Magnificent SUNSETS each evening before you make the decision - prepare dinner in our recently renovated gourmet kitchen and under the stars on the professional gas grill - or dine at one of Virgin Gorda's variety of restaurants. What a delightful decision!

At arrival, you will find two WELCOME GIFTS designed to help you relax: 'BREAKFAST DELIGHTS' for your first hearty breakfast on island and 'Pina Colada Fixin's' for toasting your first sunset at the estate. No rushing out to shop when you arrive! Ahh!

OCEANFRONT LOCATION WITH SEASIDE PATIO & KAYAK FLEET

A Dream Come True Estate enjoys a unique Oceanfront location overlooking beautiful Pond and Savannah Bay Beaches along the Western Beach Coast of Virgin Gorda. Because our luxury villa is 60' above the level of the sea, we catch the Trade Winds all year round. Our vantage point makes our 180 Degree Views simply superb! Three Beaches and many Islands are within view, and throughout the day the colors of the Water Will Shimmer and change from Turquoise to Indigo to Cerulean.

Our acre estate offers an Exceptionally Private Location, and you will delight in the Lush Tropical Gardens surrounding the villa. Our garden supplies guests with luscious mangoes, papayas, and key limes.

The HORIZON POOL is the Centerpiece of the villa with a Sitting Shelf Running Across the Back where you can sit and read while watching pelicans and boats sail by! At the Water's Edge, Lounge on chaises at our 30 foot Seaside Patio or Launch our Fleet of 6 double Sit-aboard Kayaks. Two Minutes of Paddling and you'll be at lovely Pond or Savannah Bay Beaches! At our oceanfront location, you can Swim, Snorkel, Kayak, Relax on Chaises in your very private oasis! We provide 20 sets of snorkeling gear for our guests' use.

Or for a different beach experience, walk out our estate's front gate, and stroll less than five minutes down the driveway of Mango Bay Resort to their beautiful beach. As MY guest, you will have all the amenities of Mango Bay Resort, including the use of beautiful MAHOE BAY BEACH! You'll be swimming and snorkeling at one of the best snorkeling beaches on Virgin Gorda. Or you can do as I do - put sand chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels, cooler, and your book into the back of your car and drive 30 SECONDS to park at the bottom of the hill and be in the water in a minute! This is what I do, especially when I have my grandchildren along. You never know when they all of a sudden need a nap. In 30 seconds, we're back at A DREAM COME TRUE! A splash in the pool to wash off the sand and salt, and into the Pack ' Play for nap time!

WHY CHOOSE VIRGIN GORDA?

Many love to practice their Yoga overlooking the Caribbean Sea from my veranda. You can play Miniature Golf when you might have had too much sun after a day at one of the Pristine Beaches - which are World Class and Uncrowded. In the evenings, search out some Live Caribbean Music at various locales and enjoy Virgin Gorda's many Restaurants. The next day, you will be energized again after a Restful Night's Sleep at A Dream Come True, and be ready to go Para Sailing over the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Or try Paddle Boarding! Go Sailing! Or Get Married in the BVI! Float in our pool by day, for sunset, or watching the stars at night. Or you can just Read, Relax, and Watch the pelicans diving into the sea for lunch...Heaven!

About Germaine R. Fritz

My first career was in education, for 25 years. However, once we built A DREAM COME TRUE, I started learning about fulfilling the dreams of our villa's renters and how to run a rental home that was thousands of miles away from home. I decided that I'd dedicate myself 100% to making our villa a wonderful, gracious respite for our family as well as the other families who rented from us. For many years before I built our home, our family rented beautiful homes directly from owners, and we were grateful for those opportunities.

I decided I would only rent directly to guests and NOT through wholesalers who had never seen my unique, beautiful villa. WHEN YOU CONTACT ME, YOU ARE WORKING WITH AN OWNER - NOT THE BUSINESS OFFICE OF A REALTOR! Be assured that I take a genuine personal interest in providing you with the best possible vacation experience. You are not 'just a number' when you rent from an owner like me! I consider myself your 'Virgin Gorda Concierge' in advance of your stay, and I will do everything I can to make sure you have your best vacation ever by assisting you with travel plans and finding flights to Virgin Gorda, with renting a vehicle, hiring a private chef, a boat rental, snorkel or scuba trips, spa services at the villa, or whatever will make YOUR trip memorable. I have always treated my guests as if they are good friends, with respect, and in return, I have been blessed with an excellent reputation and a villa that is one of the most popular luxury villas on Virgin Gorda. I am a VERY involved owner, and my husband and I visit our home four or five times a year.

Our children are now adults, but they named our villa 'A DREAM COME TRUE' because the whole family dreamed of owning a villa on Virgin Gorda some day! One daughter honeymooned there, my son got married at Spring Bay in 2010, and we have six grandchildren age six and under who love coming to ADCT!

I live on the coast north of Boston, MA and enjoy the beach and ocean here in the summer.

Germaine R. Fritz purchased this villa in 2000

Why Germaine R. Fritz chose British Virgin Islands

Since 1980, my husband and I had traveled to lovely, unspoiled Virgin Gorda, and eventually brought our three children there as well. We always looked at property while on vacation and dreamed about building a home 'someday' as we enjoyed staying in other folks' villas. We'd take notes on what we liked in different homes and keep track of trends in the building industry.

One Christmas vacation, we sent our kids home because we planned to stay on a second week (the oldest was a freshman in college). On our way back from the ferry dock, we saw a small sign on cardboard tacked to a piece of a tree alongside the road: Lots for Sale. It wasn't there earlier in the day. Immediately we inquired. We LOVED the land, the view, and we thought we almost could afford it!

Immediately we showed the lot to our friend who builds luxury villas on Virgin Gorda, and we bought the land the same day!

In December 1999, our home was almost ready. On Christmas Day, our family arrived to unpack two containers of new furniture, appliances, and everything from lamps to steak knives. The steps to the second floors were incomplete, so we needed to use ladders....but it was home!! If you look at our web site for a photo of our family floating in the pool at sunset, that was taken the first evening at sunset.

A DREAM COME TRUE is designed to be ideal for families or couples sharing a villa that offers exceptional privacy to all because of the floor plan, yet plenty of space to come together to make memories. The HORIZON POOL is the centerpiece of the villa, and from there you will see the Caribbean change colors throughout the day into evening when gorgeous sunsets arrive.

EVERY room and location at the villa has an OCEAN VIEW! There is a convenient pool bar with a refrigerator and professional gas grill.

Our UNIQUE OCEANFRONT LOCATION and thatched-roof pergola has chaises where you can relax seaside. The boathouse is located there as well, with six double sit-aboard kayaks. Enjoy!

What makes this villa unique

When you choose THE A DREAM COME TRUE ESTATE for your vacation home, you will enjoy the exceptional privacy of an acre of OCEANFRONT land with panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea. The villa is surrounded by lush, tropical gardens, beautifully landscaped.

Excellent quality snorkel gear is available for your use during your stay, plus our fleet of kayaks.

Our luxury villa offers you WATER SPORTS at your oceanfront location. SWIM, SNORKEL, or KAYAK in 2 MINUTES to POND BAY or SAVANNAH BAY BEACHES! Or open our front gate and enjoy a short 5 minute walk to lovely MAHOE BAY BEACH as a guest of Mango Bay Resort, my management company. Mahoe Bay Beach is a wonderful snorkeling beach and terrific for children. You can also drive and park: just pack your sand chairs, beach towels, books and cooler in the back of your car, and in 30 SECONDS, you're there!

A major benefit of staying at A DREAM COME TRUE is the fact that ALL of our VERIFIED guest reviews are 5-stars. I'm very proud of that and the excellent reputation of our villa!

When guests reserve a stay at A DREAM COME TRUE, upon arrival they are delighted to see TWO WELCOME GIFTS! One is 'PINA COLADA FIXIN'S' - all the ingredients you need for pina coladas to toast your first sunset. The other is 'BREAKFAST DELIGHTS' - everything you need for your first hearty breakfast on Virgin Gorda.

At my villa, I pamper my guests in other ways as well. MAID SERVICE is 7 DAYS A WEEK. My housekeeper will do your LAUNDRY on Tuesday. You'll find bathroom amenities, such as shampoo and conditioner, so you can travel light.

Our furnishings are top-quality, the sheets are 600 thread count, and you will find a well maintained villa with professionally maintained gardens, a well-stocked home with everything you need for your BEST vacation ever!

When reserving your week, I send you a presentation folder with a reservation form and letter, personalized information on Virgin Gorda activities, & a WELCOME MAGAZINE.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the nicest villa we have ever stayed in. It is luxurious, with full-service hotel quality. Additionally, one has the magnificent water views from all bedrooms and common areas; it is a place for escape and peace. For family time, or for a romantic getaway, it is the top. Can't wait to go back. 5 stars! (Rented for a month.)



Owner's Reply:



Bart, I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay at A DREAM COME TRUE! You are the first guest who ever rented our villa for a month! I look forward to welcoming you back in 2014 to your Virgin Gorda home.



All the best,

Germaine

Perfect Vacation...Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I love going to the BVI's! We actually own a lovely two bedroom unit at a beautiful resort just across the channel from A Dream Come True so our expectations were already high. We wanted to bring our family down to spend some quality time with them and needed to find a larger place where we could all be together! We were seven adults and an 11 month old grand baby! We also needed to have easy access to our boat as we would be spending time on it as well. We booked a dream come true and it truly was just that!! You enter the property through a rustic gate and immediately blown away by the view through lush tropical foliage across the beautiful patio and infinity pool right into Savannah bay and Drakes Passage. Off in the distance is Beef Island, Scrub Island and The Dogs. Sailboats are peacefully ancho in the bay and the water is spectacular! Walk down the natural stone steps and arrive at the main house. The main floor has a beautiful open concept kitchen and living area. Lots of books and videos if you have time for such things...I couldn't take my eyes off the water when I was there! There is great space around the pool as well as a large covered outdoor dining and living area. Each of the five bedrooms are spacious and private with fabulous outdoor showers...my second favorite part of our stay! My husband and I stayed upstairs in the Bali wing and slept with the windows open every night! You could hear the waves below which I loved! It is a very short walk down the hill to a beautiful sand beach at Mango Bay....we took our family portrait here! We were treated to a lovely dinner by Chef Puck and Germaine the housekeeper was there everyday to make sure all was in order and answer any questions we might have. Germaine Fritz (owner) was the best concierge I have ever encountered when renting a property. She was in contact with us through the entire process...setting up dinner, getting us rental cars, coordinating transfers etc. There were fresh flowers in every room...a lovely and unexpected touch as well as pina colada makings and everything we would need for breakfast our first day here. We usually visit Virgin Gorda via our boat and never get to eat dinner because we don't like driving across back across the channel at night. We took advantage of this during our stay: The view at Hog Heaven is spectacular! Chez Bamboo, the Rock Cafe, Coppermine, Top of the Baths and Coco Maya are all FABULOUS! Thanks Germaine for EVERYTHING!

Owner's Response: Dear Mary, Thank you for your kind and detailed review of your family's stay A Dream Come True Villa! I'm delighted that you were happy with the lovely views from the villa. The color of the ocean and the panoramic views from our estate are breathtaking, I agree! Thanks also for appreciating my efforts as your "Virgin Gorda Concierge" in advance of your stay as I helped you with personalized trip planning. I love to do that for all of my guests so they will have their BEST vacation ever! It's interesting to hear you describe Virgin Gorda through the eyes of a villa renter since this was your first trip not staying on a boat. It sounds like you really enjoyed this experience! You can appreciate the many attributes of Virgin Gorda (beaches, restaurants, views as you discover the island) much easier when you have a villa as your home base. And it's so great to slip into our horizon pool after a day at the beach! Or enjoy an al fresco shower. Many of my guests have told me they love to take showers just for the views! Mary, I'd love a copy of your family photo for A Dream Come True's MEMORY BOOK: Volume IV. My best, Germaine Fritz Owner A Dream Come True Villa

Panoramic Paradise

  • 5 of 5

As beautiful as the pictures on the website. We've traveled to many places with spectacular vistas. We were a group of 5 couples. The view from the terrace, pool and ample bedrooms equals and generally exceeds anyplace we've been. Multiple shades of teal in the bay below with a few yachts anchored there daily. The villa is meticulously maintained with daily service and once a week laundry. A bottle of rum and groceries are provided to get you started. We chartered planes from San Juan, rented 2 cars on BVG and went directly to the beach at the Baths and to lunch at the top of the Baths. Spent the next 7 days relaxing, sailing, eating, and exploring. Low key, extraordinarily friendly vacation spot perfect for great friends to hang out and enjoy. Had lunch at Little Dix Bay Resort, Bitter End Yacht Club, and Hog Heaven and recommend all three. Great weather. Can't say enough. Perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind and detailed review of A Dream Come True Estate! I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay with your grip of 5 couples. Thank you for mentioning who well our 6,500 sq. ft. villa is maintained. My fabulous Head Housekeeper, Germain, has been on my team for almost 14 years! Please DO spread the news about ADCT because lots of our rentals come from our happy, former renters. Don't worry, I'll manage to save a week for you and your friends. With the winters in Chicago, you deserve it. All the best, Germaine Owner A Dream Come True

Welcome to Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is truly a Dream Come True! This was our 2nd time staying here, and it was just as gorgeous as we remembered. The villa was immaculate, and well kept our entire stay by the super sweet maid, Germaine. Our first night we were greeted by chef Puck who made us a delectable dinner! We explored The Baths and Spring Bay, a MUST see if you've never been. However, most of our time was spent snorkeling (gear provided at villa) and kayaking (also provided at villa) Savannah Bay. We also enjoyed some quiet time laying under the veranda by the water. VERY peaceful! I would recommend this place over and over again. Great for families, friends, or couples looking to get away.

We had a wonderful stay

We had a wonderful vacation in Virgin Gorda & loved our stay at this beautiful villa. It had everything we needed! We enjoyed using the kayaks to visit nearby beaches & spent many evenings enjoying the sunset from the pool & back veranda. Puck cooked an amazing dinner for us & Germaine kept everything clean & tidy. We enjoyed our trip very much and highly recommend A Dream Come True.

A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

“Where do we begin singing our praises of this marvelous place? We were in complete awe of the villa from the pictures we saw, but they truly don’t do the place justice. You feel like you own the cliffside and bay - so secluded! We had hurricane scare at the beginning of our trip, but we were completely taken care of. Germaine called numerous times to make sure we were okay. The best snorkeling was in our bay. We spent so much time playing in the pool. The view was so spectacular from the pool we never wanted to get out. We had four incredible Scuba Dives to Ginger Snaps, Middle Chromis, and the RMS Rhone (a must!). Because we loved our villa so much, we cooked most of our meals at home. We hope to return to this beautiful piece of paradise SOON! It was the absolute perfect home away from home!

Owner's Response: Dear Diane, Thanks so much for your enthusiastic 5-star review of your stay at A Dream Come True villa! When I phoned you during your stay, you and your whole group were so excited about the opportunity to have a tropical storm pass by Virgin Gorda. Luckily, the winds were only 40 m.p.h. and it was quickly gone. It sounds like you experienced much of the best that Virgin Gorda has to offer, but you'll need a return trip to continue your love affair with this precious island and A Dream Come True. Do come back soon and you'll be warmly welcomed by my staff of 10+ years! - Germaine Fritz, Owner, A Dream Come True Villa

A DREAM COME TRUE VILLA ESTATE is named 'THE BEST OF THE BEST - TOP VACATION VILLA - 2014!' It s a 5-star LUXURY villa that sleeps 2-14 in 5 BR. Located on the western BEACH coast of Virgin Gorda, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS, the gem of the BVI, it's unique OCEANFRONT location is ideal. Please invest some time to visit our UPDATED and EXTENSIVE WEBSITE: www.bvidreamvilla.com, SPECIALS & also read our VERIFIED reviews when making the important decision about where to spend your precious vacation week while on Virgin Gorda. I invite you to come and find out for yourself why ALL of our VERIFIED guest reviews are 5-stars. I am a very involved owner, you will be dealing with me personally to plan your BEST vacation ever rather than a management company that deals with a multitude of properties on many islands, and my wonderful, warm staff of 5 employees have been part of my winning team for 13 years. They are in great part responsible for our guests' love of our villa.

If you are a couple on our 'Romantic Getaway for Two,' a group of 5 couples, or an extended family of 14 guests making memories at our villa, you ALWAYS HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THE VILLA!

On Virgin Gorda, nothing can be built taller than a palm tree, no casinos, no trash. Just gorgeous views of turquoise sea, white sand beaches, and bright tropical flowers on an island where the people are happy to WELCOME you to their piece of paradise because the local BVIslanders own and run the restaurants, car rental companies, and they are invested personally in keeping their island pristine and their welcome guests happy. For these reasons, we chose Virgin Gorda as our family's DREAM, and we welcome you to share it with us.

A DREAM COME TRUE, located on a private oceanfront estate that is practically an acre in size, means exceptional privacy for you. The colorful tropical gardens, professionally and lovingly tended, help provide you with a sense of peace and harmony and the the stunning bouquets in every room of the villa.

Our luxury villa is only 1.5 miles (ten minutes) from Spanish Town (airport, ferry, shops, restaurants, beaches). So near, yet so far away...

POND BAY BEACH & SAVANNAH BAY BEACH

At our OCEANFRONT location, we have a very private seaside verandah with a thatched-roof pergola and chaises for relaxing as you gaze out to beaches and the turquoise sea. There is a fleet of 6 DOUBLE kayaks so you can paddle in 2 MINUTES to the beaches!There is GREAT snorkeling right from our oceanfront location!

MANGO BAY RESORT

Or open the villa's front gate and walk down the driveway of Mango Bay Resort and in less than 5 MINUTES, you'll be at their gorgeous beach! I choose to load the back of my car with sand chairs, beach towels, snorkel gear, books, and a cooler for drinks and drive 30 SECONDS TO PARK AT THE BEACH. You can be swimming in a minute! This is great with kids in your group who suddenly need lunch or a nap. This pristine, mile-long beach at Mango Bay Resort is NEVER crowded, great for kids, and is known for excellent snorkeling. I usually see SEA TURTLES when snorkeling here. It is a great beach for sun or shade under the sea-grape trees. Mango Bay Resort is my management company, and as my guest, you are entitled to the use of all their amenities, including Mahoe Bay Beach and their Guest Services, which are top-notch. Our guests love our exceptionally private estate with water sports at our oceanfront location, and 3 world-class beaches within easy reach.

But Virgin Gorda has 14 beautiful beaches, so you'll want to venture out of the villa and do some exploring. Around every bend in the road is another terrific view! Virgin Gorda is only 8 miles long. Remember our villa is only 1.5 miles from Spanish Town, where the airport, ferry dock, grocery stores, and restaurants are located.

Here is a partial list of some of the things my guests enjoy doing while staying at my villa. As their 'Virgin Gorda Concierge' in advance of their stay, I am available to help them make their plans and offer advice before their trip.

HOW TO SPEND A DAY IN PARADISE!

1. Visit “The Baths” and other National Parks Beaches, gorgeous, exotic beaches strewn with gigantic boulders.

  • The six bathrooms at A Dream Come True are all extraordinary! The imported ceramic tile in all bathrooms was specifically chosen to Complement the Interior Design of each Bedroom Suite and is different in each one. It echos the Theme of the Decor in each bedroom ~ Caribbean for the Caribe House and Balinese for the Bali Wing. The showers are an experience you'll never forget! You can watch the pelicans diving for their dinner as you lather and rinse! The Colors of the Caribbean Sea change throughout the day, and from your perch in the shower, you truly have 'a bird's eye view!' The glass blocks let the sun shine in but afford you Abundant Privacy. After your shower, Relax on your Private Ocean-View Deck or patio. You'll be in a World of Your Own while in your Exceptionally Private Bedroom Suite. The PRIVACY of our villa is one of the many reasons why we are rated so highly by our guests' reviews - all 5 Stars on FLIPKEY and TripAdvisor. Come see for yourself!
