Coppermine Cottage


Property Details

Updated: Oct 20, 2016
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 5 Sleeps

The cottage is well located with a good view of Sir Frances Drake Channel and Yacht Harbour. The covered deck faces the sunset and gentle breezes blow most of the time. A short walk takes you to the historic Coppermine National Park with a gorgeous view of the water and sometimes of whales. Close by are the best beaches on the island. The Baths,(a must for visitors to the carribbean), Devils Bay, Spring Bay, Trunk Bay and Valley Trunk. Also nearby is Spanish Town with restaurants, shops and the harbour for taking a sail or boat ride. Feel free to walk or drive anywhere on the island with friends or alone. Virgin Gorda is a friendly island, with few problems. The government provides desalinated public water and provisions are plentiful in the shops compared to many other islands. The beaches are the best, and sparsely populated. The granite boulders attract fish for snorkeling and the beaches are white sand, blue water, sun and shade.

A Great Place To Stay While Visiting Virgin Gorda

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Coppermine Cottage while staying on Virgin Gorda.

We absolutely enjoyed every bit of it. The sunsets are amazing to watch while dining or just relaxing outside under the covered porch area. The house has a great view and is quiet during the night. (Except for the occasional downpours of rain, which we also enjoyed very much). If you like the sound of rain you will enjoy. The owner responds to any questions quickly and there is a property manager just a phone call away if needed. The property is well maintained. (Landscape, pool, etc.) We would recommend this to our friends and family without a second thought.

Great taste of island life

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the BVI and we loved it. The beaches are beautiful and the people are SO friendly!! As expected, food prices are high so plan accordingly. We pack snacks and take them with us, our girls are always hungry after a day at the beach.

The house was very nice and is located in a very quiet neighborhood. When staying here, you must get a rental car. We traveled the entire island and found a couple of beaches that the locals hang out at -- had the best time at those!

We only used the air conditioning to hide the sound of the palm tree rubbing the roof over the master bed. There is always such a nice breeze. It rained briefly each night after we went to bed, I have never seen or heard rain fall so hard and fast in my entire life. The house is well stock with kitchen utensils, toiletries, linens and towels -- both bath and beach towels. The pool is a really nice feature as well, be careful -- there is no shallow area.

The outside dining is great and the view is very nice as well. I only wish there was a citronella candle to keep the bugs away. Take spray with you, most of the restaurants have a can for you to borrow while dining. The house manager is very friendly and helpful. Overall we really enjoyed ourselves. The only bad part of our vacation was leaving.

If you have a chance to stay in this wonderful cottage ad visit Virgin Gorda -- do it, you will not be sorry!

"Perfect Spot"

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to Virgin Gorda 4-5 times over the last 15 years. We usually stay at various high end resorts. This time we brought our 9 year old son and decided to experience something different. We are so glad we did, the Coppermine Cottage was perfect. The spacious residence was quite charming and very comfortable. We rented a 4x4 and discovered every inch of paradise. This property is very close to the Baths/Devils Bay(went daily), Yacht Harbor in Spanishtown, interisland ferry service and most of the best beaches(Savanna Bay/Nail Bay). The neighborhood is very quiet and safe(local homes/Villas). Provisioning can be done at a lovely local market and the cottage is perfect if you want to cook, however most of our dining was at the resorts or the "local spots." This Island and the cottage area are very safe with virtually no crime. The locals are very friendly and know the cottage owner. At the end of the day we couldn't wait to go back to the cottage and relax by the pool and look forward to sleeping with the tradewinds blowing across the beds. We did not even put the airconditioning on ! We were a little hesitant to rent this property as our home in NJ is 4500 sq. ft. but this turned out to be everything we needed and more. From now on - this will be our base in BVI (no more resorts)!

Perfect for a couples get-away

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cottage and look forward to returning! The outdoor eating area was perfect for our group. We ate, played games, used the wifi, and basically lived on the porch! We went with one other couple and couldn't have been happier. The bedrooms are (HUGE!) on opposite sides of the house and offer a lot of privacy. We have stayed at many places on the island and have never stayed somewhere so quiet!!! We didnt hear a single rooster or ANY street noise. Also, the property manager was right next door if we ever needed anything. We utilized the kitchen and large outdoor grill by eating in everyother night. WE LOVED THE COTTAGE!!!
