About Germaine R. Fritz
My first career was in education. 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. I've been a Property Manager for 18 years. Our children 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 8 grandchildren age 12 and under who love coming to ADCT! I live on the coast north of Boston, MA. I enjoy the beach and ocean here in the summer.
Germaine R. Fritz purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Germaine R. Fritz chose Spanish Town
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! They are a "SNACK PACK" and "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 PERSONAL 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!

Definitely A Dream Come True!!
This was a fabulous vacation for our family. Germaine is a wonderful hostess and helps through all the organization of an international trip. Words can't describe how awesome Germaine is to work and plan with as well as the home that Germaine has made available to her guests. We loved having Chef Alex as our personal chef for 2 meals. His meals were the best we had our whole week. Our favorite restaurant on the island is Hog Heaven: what a view! Captain Banu was an awesome boat captain. He took us to Anegada and some cool snorkling sites! We plan to return!!
Jane, thank you for writing this lovely review about your stay at A Dream Come True Villa and your vacation on Virgin Gorda. It was my pleasure to help you plan your family's vacation over several months so we had every detail the way you envisioned it. I am thrilled that you were delighted! I will let Chef Alex know how much you enjoyed his catered dinners. When you plan to return, please remember that former guests always receive a "Thank You" discount!
All the best,
Wonderful stay at a beautiful villa
Germaine was so helpful and the house was perfect for our group! We hope to be back very soon!
I enjoyed helping you plan your Virgin Gorda vacation at A Dream Come True for 4 adults and 7 kiddos! I'm delighted you loved the villa and your vacation.
All the best,
Germaine Fritz, Owner
A Dream Come True Villa
Perfection... absolutely a Dream Come True
There are not enough adjectives to describe how you feel as you enter this villa. The view is breathtaking, the sun was shining, the pool was glistening and the house could not have been nicer. As guests from all over the country meeting up to stay at ADCT villa, we had room for (all kinds of ) error. And yet- not one glitch. The entire experience was seamless. NO ONE wanted to go home, and back to reality. We sorely miss our coffee in the morning surrounded by the bright turquoise waters, but our favorite time of day was always just gathering on the veranda or in the pool and enjoying happy hour while the sun set perfectly across the water. The house lacks for nothing. The kitchen was better stocked than my house at home. The bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect and having Germain come each day with a smile on her face was such a treat. We kayaked to Savannah Bay one day, we island hopped, we went to the Baths etc... and yet, we were always glad to get back to our happy villa.
Germaine, the owner, could not have been more patient with my zillion questions and answered each one thoroughly, which contributed to how smoothly our entire trip went. We each felt the stress of life melt right off with each passing day. To me, there is something very magical about Virgin Gorda. But add a stay at A Dream Come True villa and it really just can't get any better. Thank you Germaine for making our special vacation so incredible. Your house is amazing and I can't wait to come back.
Thank you for your heartfelt review of A Dream Come True! I am delighted that you highlighted my wonderful housekeeper Germain, who has been on my Virgin Gorda team for 17 years! She adds so much to the happy experience enjoyed by all of my guests. It was my pleasure to answer all of your questions in advance of your stay. That is part of my personalized trip planning I offer to everyone. It makes guests feel as if they are returning "home" even if it is their first time to Virgin Gorda.
I also hope you have a chance to return to A Dream Come True again. All prior guests receive a "Thank You" discount!
Wishing you all the best,
A Dream Come True Villa
We stayed the week of 3/9-3/16 with a party of 8. 5 adults and 3 kids. The property fit us perfectly. Germaine was awesome to work with from the first phone call. She is an incredible tour guide and will point you in the right direction to get the most out of your trip. Their property is meticulously maintained and well furnished. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything one would need to make a five star meal including a very nice gas grill outside. The grounds were impeccable and great beaches right around the corner with kayaks to get you there. Snorkeling right out in front of the house was fantastic as well. The best sunsets I have seen in a while no matter where you are on the property. Thanks for the wonderful stay!
PS: Rent your car from Mahogany Rentals. Book a day trip on a boat with Elaine at BVI Snuba/Bradley Powerboats(best day of our trip). Coco Maya for dinner/lunch early in your trip. The Baths after 2:30 in the afternoon. Spring Bay Beach to avoid the cruise ship traffic. Beach party Friday night at Leverick Bay is a must.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful and detailed review about your March 2019 stay at A Dream Come True Villa. It was my pleasure to work with you in advance of your vacation while planning for your wife's 40th birthday celebration. I'm delighted that you appreciated the remarkable beauty surrounding you, not just inside and surrounding my villa, but everywhere you explored on Virgin Gorda!
Thanks for your Virgin Gorda "tips" for future renters.
I hope you and your family will visit us again. Former renters always receive a "Thank You discount" from me!
All the best,

A Dream Come True Villa Estate
Spectacular vistas. Easy walk to beach. Convient to stores and restaurants.
The grand kids loved swimming in the pool and snorkeling at nearby beaches. Going out in kayaks to other beaches. A perfect family vacation.
In February 2019, my husband and I, along with two other couples spent an amazing week at A Dream Come True! Germaine ensured that all our needs were met during our stay. From the original booking, arranging our car rental, greeting at the ferry and escorting us to the villa, dinner prepared by a chef on our arrival night, the welcome basket, and so much more, I just cannot say enough. It was a week of luxury.
Our vacation at A Dream Come True Villa truly was a dream come true. The villa and views are both absolutely magnificent! The kitchen is well appointed with all the table & cookware you would ever need. All of the villa staff are friendly and helpful while taking impeccable care of this house.
We stayed in the 3 beautiful king master bedrooms, each perfectly appointed with high quality linens, toiletries and wonderful outdoor showers. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool area, spacious and complete with plenty of lounge chairs in the sun, as well as the comfortable seating area and dining table on the shaded veranda, grill and outdoor refrigerator, making this an ideal location for our pre-dinner cocktails after a day at the beach.
Virgin Gorda is still recovering from the devastating hurricanes of 2017, but despite the incredibly challenging conditions that this island faced, we found the people in Virgin Gorda very friendly and the island’s original charm and beauty still intact. The beaches are spectacular! We visited the Baths, the Crawl (both are magnificent and not to be missed) and our favorite, Savannah Bay Beach, just a kayak ride over from the house.
Top of the Baths and Coco Maya were our favorite restaurants and the Pirate “Happy Arrr” at Leverick Bay was fun and entertaining. We also rented a power boat for a day out of Leverick Bay and visited Jost Van Dyke and several other islands.
Another day we ferried over to Anegada, where you can see flamingos, walk long, unspoiled beautiful beaches and enjoy fresh Caribbean lobster at the Big Bamboo Restaurant on Loblolly Bay. We also spent some time at Cow Wreck Beach which has a great beach bar, adirondack chairs and beautiful beach as well.
I highly recommend A Dream Come True Villa. Wish we could have spent 2 weeks! Maybe next time!
Thank you again, Germaine for sharing your amazing place!
What a review! It brought tears to my eyes because of your detailed and comprehensive review of A Dream Come True! SO much goes into making sure that the vacation experience is ideal for my villa guests - from helping to coordinate their travel connections and car rental to their personal welcome on Virgin Gorda to their Welcome Dinner with the chef... Thank you for noticing all the special touches, such as the high quality linens and exceptionally well-equipped kitchen. I aim for "nothing but the best" for my guests because I want them to remember their vacation as their "best v vacation ever!" I am awed at all your group managed to do in your week of vacation! I hope you will plan a return trip because all of my wonderful guests receive a "Thank You" discount when booking their next trip! Enjoy spring in New England!
All the best,
Germaine Fritz, Owner
A Dream Come True Villa
A DREAM COME TRUE VILLA ESTATE is named 'THE BEST OF THE BEST - TOP VACATION VILLA!' Since 2000, it's been a 5-star LUXURY villa that sleeps 2-14 in 5 BR. It was entirely rebuilt and refurnished in 2018 to the highest standard. Please check our guest reviews.
A Dream Come True is located on an oceanfront acre in an area of exclusive estates on the Western BEACH coast of Virgin Gorda, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS. Virgin Gorda is considered the gem of the BVI. It's seaside, an exceptionally private location overlooking the turquoise waters of Savannah Bay. It's unique OCEANFRONT location is ideal, with a lanai, queen-size daybed, and waterfront verandah with a fleet of kayaks. Relax under the pergola before or after swimming, snorkeling, or kayaking!
Our guests love our exceptionally PRIVATE estate with water sports at our oceanfront location, and 3 world-class beaches within easy reach.
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 and travel professional; you will be dealing with me personally to plan your BEST vacation ever, rather than a rental company that deals with a multitude of properties on many islands. My wonderful, warm staff of employees will help to ensure that you enjoy a fabulous vacation. 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. 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 nearly 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! Enjoy 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! 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.
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.
3. Climb Gorda Peak National Park, the mountain behind the villa.

5. Plan a Romantic Sunset Cruise!
