A Dream Come True Villa - Is An Exceptionally Private and Luxurious 5 BR OCEANFRONT Estate! Kayaking, Snorkeling, and Relaxing at Your Private Seaside Verandah!

A Dream Come True Villa is one of Virgin Gorda's premier luxury villa estates. It is rated 5-stars by guests for so many reasons. Located on an acre of oceanfront land, it overlooks beautiful, turquoise Savannah Bay and Pond Bay Beaches, and as my guests of Mango Bay Resort - my management company - you have the use of lovely Mahoe Bay Beach, just a 5-minute walk from my front gate. Our panoramic views of three beaches and distant islands will amaze you!

Please check our web site (search for A DREAM COME TRUE, Virgin Gorda) for 30+ photos and a floor plan of the villa. As one of Virgin Gorda's most private and exclusive villas, A Dream Come True offers 6,500 sq. ft. of luxury and privacy for our most discerning guests.

At our Caribbean Sea oceanfront is a spacious and breezy Seaside Patio with thatched-roof pergola where you can relax on chaises at the water's edge. Go snorkeling with our snorkeling gear or go kayaking with the 6 double kayaks provided for our guests' enjoyment. You can paddle to three pristine, uncrowded beaches in just two minutes! Or swim or snorkel, as we do, to these absolutely gorgeous beaches each morning... Or walk in 5 minutes to Mahoe Bay Beach ~ or do as I do: put your sand chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels in the back of your car, and drive 30 SECONDS to this glorious snorkeling beach with a mile of delightful sand and shade if you like to read or snooze under a seagrape tree. This beach is ideal for young children and adults as well!

The Horizon Pool is the centerpiece of the villa. You'll enjoy lazing in the pool by day and watching the sailboats and pelicans go by... and in the evening there are magnificent sunsets from the pool and also from every room. Eventually you'll need to make the decision: prepare dinner in our gourmet kitchen and on our professional gas grill under the flower-covered pergola - or - go out to eat at one of Virgin Gorda's many enjoyable restaurants? One thing is certain: you'll be listening to the sound of the water lapping at the shore as it lulls you to sleep each night!

The main "Caribe House" offers the Great Room with a beautifully furnished living room, dining room for 10, gourmet kitchen, and entertainment area. There is an outdoor living and dining room on a covered verandah as well.

In the Caribe House there are three bedroom suites: two king bedroom suites (one with a 4-poster bed and kitchenette) and one queen bedroom with two queen beds.

Across the expansive patio and past the horizon pool, the "Bali Wing" offers two more suites: a king suite with a 4-poster bed and kitchenette and another queen bedroom with two queen beds. Every bedroom suite in the villa has an ocean view, individual private decks or patios and outdoor glass showers with views of the turquoise Caribbean Sea.

A Dream Come True is designed as the perfect villa where you can to come together with family and friends and yet have personalized, spacious spaces to call your own within the villa. Every bedroom is individually decorated. Each is air-conditioned and has a ceiling fan above the bed. Please check our web site for the floor plan and photos of each bedroom suite.

No matter the size of your group ~ even two ~ you will always have exclusive use of the villa during your stay and exceptional privacy the size of our estate affords. Come find out why A Dream Come True is so beloved by honeymooners, couples vacationing together, and families enjoying a reunion.

Privacy abounds amid incomparable beauty. The TODAY Show featured A DREAM COME TRUE Villa on December 24, 2008 because our villa has everything a vacationer could want in a vacation villa!

Surrounding the villa are professionally maintained tropical gardens and fresh fruit from our gardens for our guests. We'd love to share our bit of heaven with you! Please visit our web site for more than 30 photos, a floor plan, and lots of additional information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the nicest villa we have ever stayed in. It is luxurious, with full-service hotel quality. Additionally, one has the magnificent water views from all bedrooms and common areas; it is a place for escape and peace. For family time, or for a romantic getaway, it is the top. Can't wait to go back. 5 stars! (Rented for a month.)



Owner's Reply:



Bart, I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay at A DREAM COME TRUE! You are the first guest who ever rented our villa for a month! I look forward to welcoming you back in 2014 to your Virgin Gorda home.



All the best,

Germaine

Exceeded expectations for the seasoned traveler

  • 5 of 5
A Dream Come True is a well fitting name to describe the trip I took for my 50th birthday celebration. The villas owner, Germaine, let us know from the initial contact that she was willing and eager to help us make this trip a memorable and smooth one for our large group of family and friends. After our short ride from the ferry station to our villa, we were met by the courteous and helpful Geno in the Maho Bay office, literally steps away from the entrance to our villa.
When we opened the gate and stepped in, we all gasped at how beautiful the villa, pool and views were... The rooms were clean, spacious and each had a great view. It didn't take the adults long to pick our rooms because all the views from the bedrooms are fabulous!
The location near sapphire and pond bay was very nice and their were no crowds- it was like having our own succluded island. In the late afternoon, a few beautiful boats and yachts would park in the cove and made our picturesque view even prettier. The kitchen was well stocked with top of the line knives and lots of glassware and plates to accomate our big crew. The pool is not huge but all you really need to float around in after a fun day at the nearby Baths or eating in the great nearby restaurants. The kayaks that come with the property gave our college age kids the perfect vehicle to take off on snorkel adventures within our view. The best part was that although we had 13 in our group, we all felt like we had plenty of room for privacy. We read lots of books off the shelves, took naps in the sun or shade by the pool and swam in the warm water.What I liked the least was that we weren't smart enough to book puck, the chef who made our delicious welcome dinner, more than one other time. What a character and fantastic chef. His concoctions and fusions of the food he prepared made the kids and adults alike very happy.
I highly recommend you work on making this your DREAM COME TRUE.

Owner's Response: Lisa, thank you for your detailed, 5-star review of A Dream Come True! I apologize that I'm just responding now due to a bout with the flu. Helping you plan your 50th Birthday Week Celebration was fun for me, too! I could tell from your review that everyone in your group found their "dream" activities, whether it be kayaking from our oceanfront location to lovely Pond Bay Beach, floating in our new pool, or simply lazing around reading a book, wondering when Puck will show up and what he'll be preparing for dinner. For those of you who book the villa in the future, I do recommend letting me know if you want to reserve Chef Puck! I planned a 50th birthday dinner for Lisa with a yummy cake from a talented local pastry chef. Many milestone birthdays and anniversaries are celebrated at my villa each year, but you don't need that excuse to plan a trip!

Owner's Response: Dear Hilary,


It was a delight helping your family from the U.K plan your 10-day Christmas holiday at A Dream Come True! I knew you'd love both our 5-star our villa and the beautiful island of Virgin Gorda. Puck is a magician in the kitchen! The three of us collaborated on your menus for breakfast and dinner for every day of your stay, and I am happy you loved his "Caribbean fusion of delightful tastes!" Someday I hope you can return and enjoy this experience again!

By far, best vacation our group of 10 has ever had

  • 5 of 5
The house and the view were spectacular. The hardest part of the trip was dragging people away from the house to explore the rest of the island as we had everything we needed at the house....drinks, food, pool and of course, the awesome view.

The villa was as pictured - huge, beautiful, clean and very conveniently located with a spectacular view.

The owners assistance was priceless...she was very successful in making it feel like we knew enough about the island before we went that it felt like it was our second trip to the island before we got there.

Her recommendations were right on:
Grocery - marina and wholesale club were convenient and had everything we needed for our stay
Restaurants - Nail Bay, Chez Bamboo, Top of the Baths - all were excellent.
Personal Chef - Two meals at the villa, both excellent with a great island feel.
Water taxi - 1 hour delayed from St. Thomas, return on time. Boat was very clean and the captain was great.
Car rental - easy, affordable and clean

The villa's maid very nice and assisted us as requested.

We did venture out to The Bath's, Virgin Gorda peak as well as a few beaches on the island. It was a maximum 15 minutes to all and very worth it as we had a great time at each.

Would I recommend this villa to others? I believe the following will answer - Among our group, we have several more high-profile birthday's in the near future...the email traffic has already started to go another round at "A Dream Come True".

Owner's Response: Dear Dave,

Thanks for taking the time to write a review about your stay at A DREAM COME TRUE! You certainly hit all the top notes about your stay. I so enjoyed helping you plan for Carole's birthday dinner with Puck and your BEST vacation ever! I'm glad you mentioned that you felt well-prepared when you arrived for your first stay on Virgin Gorda. That's one of the gifts I try to give to all of my guests in advance of their stay in my printed materials, emails, or phone calls ~ my extensive knowledge about the beaches, restaurants, grocery stores, even where to buy specific brands of baby formula....details that can make or break a trip. I have to say I just love sending guests on vacation and hearing back that my employees at A Dream Come True and I have scored another 5-star review! (:

We rented a Dream Come True Villa with family and friends from February 9th through the 16th. Without exception, everyone wholeheartedly agreed that a Dream Come True - the Villa itself, its location, its grounds and its staff - are simply unsurpassed in every way compared to any place we have ever stayed.

This villa not only provides breath taking views night and day, but also provides both the togetherness needed on family vacations and the privacy one seeks on vacation. What I mean by that is there are so many living spaces on the grounds that you can be together any time you want in gorgeous surroundings or you can go to one of the 5 private baloncies and relax on your own.

Another unbelievable feature are the 5 outside tiled showers, where you shower in privacy overlooking the Caribbean. Doesn't get any better than that!! actually, it does - I forgot to mention the infinity pool - overlooking the Caribbean!!

The actual grounds are unbelievable. I do not know of a resort that can compete with the landscaping at a Dream Come True.

We decided to eat at the Villa almost every night, as we simply did not want to leave the Villa. The Villa is completely stocked with every cooking utensil known to man, so it is very easy to put together a great meal.

A must do for diner one night is to have Puck come to cook for you. Not only was his food awesome but we loved watching him put it all together! And of course, as Germaine pointed out, Puck will deliver gallons of painkillers to you once you arrive at the Villa! They are awesome.

If you are going to go out, we highly recommend taking a taxi and eating at Leverick Bay. It was delicious. We also really enjoyed Coco De Maya, which was excellent.

There is so much more to say about this absolutely magnificent place and the hospitality of Germaine and her staff. I strongly encourage you to reserve your stay and have the time of your life. We did and look forward to returning!

Owner's Response: Dear Fred and Kathleen,

It was a pleasure helping you plan your first trip to Virgin Gorda. Many thanks for staying at A Dream Come True Villa with your friends from New Orleans! Your review touched on so many features of our home that our guests love, such as our outdoor glass block and tile showers with views of the turquoise Caribbean, the hospitality of my staff who have worked with me for 10 years, the beautiful landscaping under the direction of Bridgy, our villa's floor plan - with abundant privacy in all 5 bedroom suites yet many places in and out of the villa to come together and make memories. I know you are a world traveler who expects the best, and I am humbled and honored that A Dream Come True ranked higher in "every way compared to any place we have ever stayed." Our motto is "Your best vacation ever!" and so many of our guests do echo your sentiments. Thank you and do come back soon!

Dreaming Big

  • 5 of 5
I don't typically write reviews, but felt the need for this wonderful experience! My boyfriend, his two brothers, and I stayed at this beautiful home in August 2012 as part of Vacations for Veterans. Without the program and Germaine's generosity we would not have been able to stay otherwise.

From the moment you arrive you know it's a special place. The house is beautiful but the views are incredible!! I was relaxed instantly. The layout of the home is perfect, allowing you to spread out and escape to your own space (with beautiful views from every room). Oh, and the kitchen is a dream! The 4 of us love to cook so we rarely went out - instead we visited a few of the stores around the island and tried our hand and cooking some local dishes.

There are so many things to do and see around the island - the Baths, the beaches, Bitter End. We really enjoyed exploring. However nothing beats walking down to the private deck and spending the day snorkeling and kayaking around the bay!

One thing I have to mention - if you like to snorkel, island hop, or scuba dive, you HAVE to call Dive BVI. Jeff and Casey McNutt were incredibly sweet and accommodating. They took us out to various beautiful dive spots around the island. The boys LOVED the scuba diving, though I can tell you the snorkeling is top notch as well!

Germaine and her staff were so welcoming and made our planning and stay so easy. This is a vacation we will always remember.

Owner's Response: Kelsey and Jon participated in the "Vacations for Veterans" program and stayed at A DREAM COME TRUE VILLA as my guests at no cost. "Vacations for Veterans" gives severely wounded U. S. servicemen and women ~ who must have earned the Purple Heart in Iraq or Afghanistan to qualify ~ a wonderful opportunity for a special vacation at no charge. Although Jon lost both legs, he was a highly skilled scuba diver due to his military training. When I contacted DIVE BVI to ask if they would take Jon and his brothers diving during their complimentary stay at my villa, they replied that on staff was a Vietnam Veteran who would be delighted to host them on daily dives! They rolled out the red carpet for them. A shout out to DIVE BVI! I encourage everyone reading this who owns a second home or condo, please do consider offering a stay to "Vacations for Veterans." The need is great, and it is an honor to give back to these men and women who have served our country with distinction and given so much. All of the Purple Heart recipients I have hosted at my villa have been double amputees, received traumatic brain injuries, or a combination of injuries they will deal with for the rest of their lives.
