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.

Family Vacation/Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We found Bigger Splash to be a perfect home for our family vacation. From the booking process thru Debbie meeting us at the ferry our expectations were met and or exceeded. Beautifully decorated and maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need to prepare a meal there. Walking distance to "The Baths". A short drive to other area attractions. The master suite provided a stress free environment for our daughter to prepare for her wedding at a local restaurant. The open floor plan is amazing, we never felt like it was crowded. Pool area and surrounding landscaping was breath taking. Would definitely recommend staying at Bigger Splash and not hesitate to book it again.

thanks for a wonderful experience and for sharing your home.

Jay & Deb.

What a wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous family vacation! It all started when we arrived on an earlier ferry (my husband was just to anxious to get there!). We were not going to bother the concierge knowing that we were early and she may be busy with other clients, so we just called for our rental car. Well Mohogany Rental showed up as well as Debbie. Mohogany Rental took our luggage and said they would deliver the vehicle to the house when it was ready. Debbie took us around and showed us the lay of the land. She took us shopping for food and drink at several different locations! I know that if we needed anything we could have called her and she would have taken care of it right away, but we were lucky enough to not have to bother her.

The rest of the staff (housekeeping and grounds keeper) were so very friendly! The house was lived it, but was clean and comfortable. It was such a good size for our 2 families. We didn't get in each others way, but we did spend a lot of time together. Plenty of room at the dining room table. The pool was a common area that we all wound up. The kitchen was stocked nicely with pots, pans, utensils.

The location to the Bath's was awesome! We must of walked there every day and sometimes 2 or 3 times. At times (when cruise ships were not docked), it felt as if we were the only ones on the island. Stopped several times at Mad Dogs at the top of the baths when walking by. Good food and cocktails. In stopping there we met someone who charters boats and we had a fabulous day snorkeling, site seeing other islands etc. We will definitely return to Virgin Gorda, and would be more than happy to stay at The Bigger Splash again!

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Bigger Splash for 3 nights and had a wonderful time! The house has lots of space, air conditioning in the bedrooms, beautiful pool that was enjoyed by all of our kids and walkable distance to the Baths! I would definitely recommend staying here if you plan to stay on Virgin Gorda.

Best Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our second stay at Bigger Splash! This time we included the two new spouses of our children, and they also loved it. The location near the baths, combined with the 7 magnificent outdoor seating areas, make it the best ever. The pool is delightfully refreshing and nicely situated, while surrounded by boulders and blooming foliage.

The concierge, Debbie, was also extremely helpful in pre-trip information and attending to our daily needs.

We hope that someday our children bring their children to this wonderful place.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed 2 weeks with two sets of friends and we all loved the house. There is no much space that there is plenty of room to spread out and have lots of privacy. There many beautiful spots to sit outside for shade lovers as well as sun lovers. The pool is beautiful and refreshing and has shady spots for most of the day. The house is a 10 minute walk to bath beach and a 15 minute walk to spring beach. For food and drinks the house is a 5 minute walk to Mad Dog and Top of the Baths. Taxi's are plentiful and cheap so it is easy to do without a car.

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!
