Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in British Virgin Islands - Bigger Splash Villa

Private Villa by The Baths, 4 bdrms + futon | 4.5 baths

This beautiful villa is constructed with a unique multi-level design. It is a short walk from the famous Baths and Spring Bay's beaches. Right down the road from Top of the Baths, one of the best restaurants on VG and Mad Dog's - a bar serving the best local drinks in the Caribbean.

The villa affords guests of Bigger Splash significant privacy, yet offers extended island views and welcomes cool island breezes. This home features an airy great room with balconies on three sides-excellent for relaxing or entertaining, look-out tower, and large kitchen expanding to outdoor terraces. This extensive four bedroom villa can comfortably sleep up to ten people and each air-conditioned bedroom has its own bath.

The main house has three bedrooms for guests 1 through 8. It includes a master bedroom (king) with an outdoor shower, in addition to outdoor seating at poolside. Two additional bedrooms (1 king bed, 2 doubles) are both located on the main, upper level, accessed across an open terrace with seating areas and views of the pool. Please check rates for the main house based on number of guests.

For larger parties, a separately accessed one bedroom (queen) guest suite is available with its own kitchen, living area, and private terraces. A futon (queen) is available if additional sleeping accommodations are required. Please note: the guest suite is rented for an additional fee.

Exciting Caribbean colors, brilliant artwork, and comfortable furnishings enhance the flair of the property. The marble floor, Spanish tiles, and the perfect blend of contemporary and wicker furnishings collectively provide the sophisticated, elegant and spacious look of Bigger Splash.

Perfect Villa For Our Family

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at the Bigger Splash Villa. The villa is very spacious and our 4 children (3 of whom are teenagers) had plenty of room to spread out. The views from the top of the villa are lovely and it was a favorite place to take our morning coffee or evening pina colada.

The pool was pristine and refreshingly cool after a day at the beaches.

The bedrooms all have a/c as does the separate cottage. The great room has a powerful ceiling fan, and keeps the room cool (at least for us in February.)

The kitchen was fully stocked with cookware and utensils and the gas grill on the deck made bbq quick and easy.

You can walk to the Baths and Spring Bay is a short 2 minute drive.

TV's are available in the cottage, master bedroom and great room.

You might wish to bring your own deck of cards and some games if you are a gaming family, but we were pleased to see a travel scrabble board and some books. There are plenty of "What to do on BVI" pamphlets and books.

The caretaker, Debbie, was wonderful and even stopped with us on the way from the ferry so that we could get groceries for the next morning.

We loved the breezes that were almost constant during our stay, and we couldn't be more pleased with the Bigger Splash and highly recommend it!

Would go back

  • 4 of 5

6 of us were at Bigger Splash. My husband and I had the room with the twin beds. It was probably the smallest bedroom but it was very nice. Beds were comfy. The only complaint was the shower head in the bathroom. We had shower envy. Every other room had good water pressure but ours. Even our sink had more pressure. I hope they can switch that shower head out. We had at outdoor shower too.

We also used the gas grill that was at the property and it was nice, and new. It is a nice feature to have.

Due to the close proximity of the beaches, we would head out every day to the ocean. After a long day at the ocean, we would spend late afternoons pool side at the villa. The villa has an in ground pool set among the boulders and is very pretty, especially at night.

Every morning everyone would congregate at the large table outside of our bedroom. We would sit there for hours just relaxing. The table was just off of the kitchen and it was under a covered patio area. The house had a lot of patio and deck space with good seating options, which was very nice. It also had an observation tower that we called the Crow's nest, also with good seating. You could even sleep up there if you wanted to.

As others have mentioned, there are a few minor issues with the villa, but nothing that would keep us from returning. The ice maker on the refrigerator does get jammed, but leave it on crushed and you should be good to do. We had an electrician with us and that was his recommendation. He cleared the jams and it worked okay.

The sliding screen doors that lead to the kitchen need to be fixed too, which was a big annoyance during the week. If we had used just the glass doors, the kitchen would have been too hot to go in. We also tried fixing the screen doors, putting the wheels back on them, etc. It worked for a little while and then would go back to being messed up.

The villa is beautiful and has great views. The bedrooms are well appointed and comfortable. The A/C is a huge plus. The covered patio's and decks are the best. The pool is just beautiful around the rocks. The location is tops! The maid service is good too. We had it 3 days and Margaret and her assistance were very nice. Ralph the pool maintenance man was also very friendly and nice. All in all you won't be disappointed. Go and enjoy and relax! I hope this villa will be available for many years to come. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your home......

We stayed at Bigger Splash for 9 days. We had stayed there previous years but the house had been neglected so we stayed elsewhere the past few years. We were happy to find out the house had been remodeled. We like the layout of the house with the bedrooms away from the kitchen and living area. Having the pool is an added bonus and is situated perfectly around the living areas. The addition of air conditioning in the bedrooms is fantastic! Keeping the bedrooms cool and closed makes the trip even better. Debbie met us at the airport and made sure our stay was great! There were three couples in our group so we did not use the extra room. We like being close to The Baths, Spring Bay Top of the Baths and Mad Dogs.

Christmas 2014

  • of 5

WE had a great week at Bigger Splash. Being able to walk to the Baths before the tourists got there in the morning was amazing. We had the whole place to ourselves. Spring Bay Beach is beautiful and also never crowded. The house was well equipped, but I would suggest a few more blankets on the beds. Loved the outdoor showers and the lookout tower. If you go make sure to have lunch and a pina colada at Mad Dog. And don't miss Coco Maya. Cant wait to go back.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Bigger Splash was just ideal for our 4 couples. We each had our private space yet plenty of room to gather around the pool or the many porches with outstanding views. The Baths and Spring Bay were within easy walking distance. The villa was well stocked and Debbie the property manager was very helpful. We would definitely return.

Great Location, needs some amenity updates

  • 3 of 5

The location near the Baths cannot be beat. It is a short (and I mean SHORT) walk to the entrance to the path to the beach and to Devil's Bay and the entrance has a great restaurant and a great view over the bays.

The house was sufficient for our stay. The space was open and, although it was only my wife and I, I could see a larger group maneuvering the space very well without bumping into each other. The only drawback to us, wishing to eat many meals at the house, is that the kitchen amenities were not up to par with our other rentals. The oven did not work, the refrigerator ice dispenser jammed numerous times, the pans tended to show rust when not dried immediately after washing, and the management company supplied a small chamois instead of a sponge for dish washing. Although subtle, these are things that could have made our stay more pleasant.

Other than the kitchen amenities, the beds were very comfortable, the air conditioners in each room worked very well, the top deck offered panorama views and the pool was a great temperature and in a great landscaped environment.

The Baths, world-famous stellar beach and natural attraction is within a short walk of the property!

Virgin Gorda is the perfect Caribbean vacation for the guest wanting a relaxing, slow-paced experience, and access to beautiful, uncrowded beaches. You may often find you have a beach entirely to yourself! Get away from it all and bring your family and friends with you to stay at Bigger Splash.

Fish, snorkel, scuba, water ski, etc...all of the fun and exciting water sports and activities are available either on-island or nearby. Rent a scooter or car, or hire a taxi to explore the island.

Be sure to climb Gorda Peak, swim at all of the beaches, visit neighboring islands, and have a BBC, Bushwacker, or Pain Killer at Top of the Baths or Mad Dog, next door to Bigger Splash!
