Reviews of Serendipity
|Having sailed into Virgin Gorda on several occasions, I was hesitant to be land bound. However once we were there my son put it best, "It feels like we are on the bow of a ship". Between the trade winds, the sound of water lapping at "our" shore and panoramic views from all rooms, my fears were put to rest immediately. The photos can't capture the constant breeze from the trade winds or the sounds from the local song birds.
The villa itself was large and casually comfortable with all the kitchen facilities to please the chef (my wife). On lazy mornings the kids spent time snorkeling from the beach, reading by the pool or chasing lizards. We never felt compelled to leave, but when we did there was shopping and restaurants within a short walk. The Friday night barbeque and Moko Jumbies show at Leverick Bay was a real crowd pleaser.
We only rented a car for a couple of days to go to the Baths (a must) twice and to tour the island. Traffic consisted of a herd of goats and flock of chickens. The rest of the time we leveraged the local ferry to Saba Rock, the Bitter End Yacht Club and the Fat Virgin Cafe (our vote for best local flavor). Otherwise, we simply stayed by the pool drinking Carib's and working on our tans. "Island time" has a whole new meaning for us.
The booking process with Best of BVI was painless. Trudi was patient and thorough, particularly regarding the multiple options on getting to the island. The response was consistent and timely.
|Serendipity was very good. Positives: spectacular view, spacious living room, quiet and secluded location, close by facilities of Leverick bay (i.e. shop, restaurant, watersports), good kitchen, good swimming pool. Overall good and clean. Negatives: Mosquito nets at the windows with holes, beach not ideal for swimming/with kids, certain "dark" windows because canvas too old.
We would recommend to add a shower as well as parasol or other shade facility at the pool and also a hanger with pegs for wet towels, bathing suits etc.
We liked the possibility to visit Saba Rock for lunch with free and convenient Saba ferry transport.
We had a very good time at Serendipity and would recommend the villa to friends anytime. Excellent job by Trudi at bestofbvi. Absolutely exceeds Swiss standards!
|Serendipity was very good - much better than the pictures! The kitchen appliances were the same brand I have at home. The living areas were comfortable. Housekeeping was excellent. I liked that the women came about the same time each day and appreciated clean sheets every day and fresh, clean towels. What a luxury to have house cleaning 6 days a week!
The best massage I've ever had was at Leverick Bay.
Best of BVI was excellent, very responsive. I've already recommended Serendipity to others.

|Serendipity was excellent, clean and comfortable. It was well-equipped although we would recommend adding an ironing board.
