Your Guide to Virgin Gorda Villas

The third largest Virgin Island, Virgin Gorda offers a perfect combination of stunning landscapes, natural wonder, and unspoiled beauty. And, as part of the British Virgin Islands, it’s still relatively accessible while remaining blissfully serene. Virgin Gorda villas epitomize this mix of modern convenience and raw beauty, resulting in unparalleled rental experiences.

Virgin Gorda was first discovered by Christopher Columbus and later colonized by the Dutch and British. It became a hub for copper mining before turning over to the sugar industry in the 17th century. Over time, the island grew a reputation for natural beauty as well, leading to the development of villas and hotels. It wasn’t until the tourist boom of the 1960s, though, that Virgin Gorda villas started emerging as some of the best in the Caribbean.

Renting a luxury villa in Virgin Gorda is easy with Rental Escapes. First, choose your travel dates. Next, choose your party size. From there, your Rental Escapes villa specialist will happily present you with the best available Virgin Gorda villas for your group. After, your concierge customizes your trip, including transportation, chef service, boat charters, excursions, and more.
