Valentine’s Day is on my mind as I write this message today. When a couple plans a vacation to Virgin Gorda, they often think it simply is extravagant to choose a villa rather than a hotel room. After all, there are only two of them in their group.
In the past 15 years, I’ve rented my 6,500 sq. ft. villa, A Dream Come True Villa, to many couples celebrating their engagements, renewing their wedding vows, enjoying their honeymoons, baby moons, or “just because.” Let me explain how renting a villa may be the best choice for you.
Many times I’ve helped nervous fellows plan where to pop the question on Virgin Gorda beaches. For one romantic gentleman, I hired a private chef to arrive at the villa in time to light candles throughout the Great Room, turn on the CD of music mailed by this guest in advance of his stay – everything accomplished before the newly engaged couple returned to A Dream Come True for their engagement dinner!
My housekeeper, Germain, is an expert at making gorgeous bouquets for brides renewing their wedding vows at A Dream Come True. Sometimes these events are a surprise for the bride or the groom, and that adds to the fun!
Many parents-to-be have enjoyed “baby moons” before little ones arrive; they love the maid service 7 days a week and pampering offered by our staff. I’ve come to think that couples that honeymoon on Virgin Gorda have the beauty of the island and the turquoise color of the water imprinted on their DNA’s. They often return, and they tell me they keep photos of ADCT villa as their screensaver on their computers until they can come for their anniversary.
No matter how deluxe your hotel room, it is still a room with 4 walls. Once you leave it, your privacy is gone. In contrast, when staying at a private villa, you are free to move about your private world, enjoying views of beaches and islands.
You can laze by your own pool and skinny dip under the stars. Play your favorite music into the soft night air as you listen to the sound of the surf on the shore.
When comparing the cost of a hotel room to a villa stay, be sure to factor in the savings realized by preparing some of your meals at a villa. In addition, most villas have special rates for couples renting one bedroom, and you enjoy exclusive use of the entire property.
You may decide as many couples do ~ a private villa is the perfect romantic getaway! It’s the ideal place to return to after a day at your best Virgin Gorda beach…
