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.

A splash in the pool to wash off the sand and salt, and into the Pack ' Play for nap time!
WHY CHOOSE VIRGIN GORDA?
There are not many easily accessible places as beautiful as A DREAM COME TRUE VILLA ESTATE and Virgin Gorda. There is so much to do on this precious island. Why not hike through Gorda Peak National Park early one morning and have a 360 Degree View of the BVI? While there do some Birding! Explore 'THE BATHS' National Park and the other 12 amazing beaches and unspoiled beaches. You will never be bothered by anyone selling hats or anything at a Virgin Gorda Beach ~ and 99% of them are uncrowded. (The Baths is crowded until after 2 pm; then the ferry returns to Tortola.) 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.)
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,
