About Marie Cogar

John, grew up in Central New York, attended University of Rochester and Cornell, graduated as a Veterinarian, interned in St Thomas and sailed over to Long Bay Beach Resort to tend to the animals of the resort owners at that time. Over the past 35 years while owning and practicing veterinary medicine in another beautiful area, Lake Placid, New York, we would travel to Tortola to visit his veterinary mentor and the Long Bay Beach owners who encouraged us to have a villa built. In 2002 Wellsprings Villa 31 was completed. It is truly another beautiful area in the world.

Marie Cogar purchased this villa in 2002

Why Marie Cogar chose British Virgin Islands

This property continues to offer us privacy and community at the same time. We can join others for tennis, social gatherings, and a meal, or to be alone we quietly lounge on the beach, our deck, or going for a snorkel or sail.

What makes this villa unique

Often coming from professional, busy lives, we need a place that allows us to immediately relax and leave behind work and responsibilities. Wellsprings Villa 31 provides us with this type of vacation. We also have come to enjoy the kind, trusting, spiritual local people.

Daytime view provides many shades of turquoise blue and often a rainbow after a rain.

One of our favorite times is watching the sunset over Jost Van Dyke from our Penthouse deck. As the darkness approaches, we see the string of pearl-like lights on this island.

Great Christmas vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for a Christmas vacation this year and we had a great time! The villa was super clean when we arrived and we appreciated the cleaning/sheets/towel change mid-week. Sharlene and JC were so helpful in answering all of our questions before our arrival and while we were there. The location is perfect with great beaches and restaurants nearby. Definitely a good spot if you're looking to eat in a few nights, we used the grill and loved eating out on the deck.

Amazing view

  • 5 of 5

After one week sailing in the BVI we decided to relax another few days in Wellspring Penthouse.

The house is located on Long Bay Beach very beautiful.We loved every minute in the very clean Penthouse.

It had everything we needed

The view and sunset from the balcony is amazing.We loved sitting out there every night.

The staff took good care of us ,we had everything we needed and housekeeping was just a phone call away ,if we

had questions.We definitely are coming back.

Spring Break in Tortola

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Tortola from March 17-25 and enjoyed being back again. The villa was accomodating and the staff was always kind and helpful. The photos are accurate and the location is great. Within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, and surf spots.

Another great visit to Tortola

  • 5 of 5

We made it back to Tortola again this year and as in the past we stayed at a Villa on Long Bay. This year we stayed at Wellsprings and it was great. I'm not sure what another reviewer was referring to but our management team was great. Sam and JC checked in on us a few times to make sure all was ok. The unit was clean and comfortable. We rented a car (which I recommend) and visited a number of different beaches. Smugglers is still our favorite, since it is a little off the beaten path and never crowded. We also boated to other islands. I highly recommend White Bay on Jost Van Dyke. This is absolutely our favorite place to vacation in the winter and I'm sure we'll return.

Great villa, subpar Management

  • 4 of 5

I can't speak highly enough of this villa itself. It was gorgeous and quiet, with views that we never grew tired of. The location was perfect- close to Soper's hole for easy island-hopping and a short walk to Long Bay. We love the BVI, and the owners of this property really made it feel like a "home away from home."

We rented a car from Jerry's, which was great! I highly recommend working with them.

However, the management of this villa was less than desirable. We were told that housekeeping would be coming at one point during the week. They never came. This would not normally be a huge issue, but there was a very low supply of towels and no access to a Washer/Dryer. We ended up re-using towels far too often and hoping that a housekeeper would come eventually. By day 7, we had given up hope on seeing her. After 7 days in the sand, clean sheets and towels will go a long way!

We were also told by management that the cable was out "due to weather" and would be working again "shortly." In our attempts to fix it, we received a message on the upstairs TV telling us to pay the bill in order to watch TV. We don't go on vacation to watch TV, but I would have appreciated a little honesty from the management.

The upstairs A/C is worthless, the hot water in the jacuzzi tub wouldn't turn on, and a heavy armoire door fell off the hinges and onto my daughter… Things are literally falling apart. Management was not overly concerned about these issues. An attempt was made to fix the A/C, but it did little to resolve the issue.

I'm not someone who is difficult to please. But I have a huge issue with people not doing their jobs. I understand that it is summer/low season, but this should mean more attentive customer service (not non-existent service). For the price, I really expected a little more in the management department.

I would stay at this villa again- for it's great location, gorgeous views, and homey environment. BUT, In the future I will lower my expectations for customer service.

Amazing view of Long bay

  • 5 of 5

car from Dede's ( on the samantha advice) and everything was perfect and on time!! Car was waiting for us at the ferry dock and the condo manager too. Never seen that before. We were always able to reach them if we needed it. we read all the brochure found on the website and it was helpful. We did almost everything on it and it made our trip great. I suggest everybody get a little SUV from dede's and be ready with what you want a do on the island. Internet can be use on the long beay beach club lobby but it is not good signal. It's alright if you need it few minutes. Thanks for everything you did for us and i recommand this place. Don't hope to do a big party with your neighbors. It's a really quiet place.

The view is so amazing!!!! Wave backround sound :))) wonderful great!!!!!!
