Our family first came to Virgin Gorda in 1995 and fell in love with Mahoe Bay. Building our villa has been a realization of a dream for us. We named the villa Loblolly after the loblolly trees on the property.
Candace Dochstader purchased this villa in 2000
We chose to build here because the location is spectacular, the people of Virgin Gorda are welcoming and friendly, and it provides a place for our family and friends to congregate, play, and rejuvenate. We also appreciate having the white sandy beaches and protected bay just 100 gentle yards from our villa.
Virgin Gorda's Mahoe Bay and its long, quiet sandy beach is the most beautiful, restorative, and peaceful ocean living I have ever experienced. Loblolly is perfect - a well-designed luxurious villa. I spend about two weeks at Loblolly every year with wife and family, but it's large enough for several families all at once. There are four idyllic master bedrooms with king size beds and private bathrooms, each with its own outdoor shower, and a pair of bedrooms for kids. The pool is surrounded by a lounging area and all the tropical foliage you could want. When we're in the house and not at the beach, we're almost always outside on the shaded upper patio which is large enough for at least twelve people to lounge, eat, drink, grill, and watch the spectacular sunset over the ocean. There's also a spacious, comfortable great room just inside as well as a very nice kitchen. And you have to experience the beach to believe it's real: quiet, sandy, and beautiful. The water is warm, calm, and crystal clear so the swimming is fantastic, as is the snorkeling along the coral reef where we see parrot fish, squid, and sea turtles just to name a few. Mahoe Bay is near the center of the island, so, via car, we're about ten minutes from anywhere on the island. What else? Management is friendly and always available, and they keep the house looking great all the time. Loblolly is really amazing.
Our stay at Loblolly was everything we had hoped it would be. The house has an ideal layout with the 6 bdrms & 6.5 baths. Bedrooms are not connected to the kitchen/family room so the early birds could be cooking away to their heart's content & not disturb anyone else. Everyone was very happy that each bdrm had its own safe & bath because when you have a crowd of people, you need a crowd of bathrooms. Management and staff were really great, went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect during our stay. Our arrival was a bit "topsy-turvy" due to the airline charter switching things on us at the last minute but the staff picked up the slack on their end and got us quickly and safely to the house from the airport. We rented 2 cars from L & S Jeep which were at the airport upon our arrival as promised. We just left the vehicles at the airport when we left - made it so easy on us! Mahoe Bay is beautiful with wonderful views & gorgeous sunsets - takes your breath away! The beach is spectacular - white sand with plenty of space for non-swimmers to be in the water and enjoying themselves. Reef is very large, at times you would have only 2" between you and the reef below. It is great for snorkelers as well as my son who did a couple of dives there. My sons dove the RMS Rhone with Dive BVI & really enjoyed both dives on that site. Candy has pool & beach items - all you could need or want. There is even a beach cart to load the chairs, etc. on to take to the beach. Loblolly was so great - no one wanted to leave to go home. Thank you Candy for sharing your lovely home with us - we all enjoyed ourselves so much and hope to be able to return in the near future.
