Description


If you are looking to be the envy of the British Virgin Islands, you can’t do much better than Valley Trunk. Family owned for over thirty years on the stunningly beautiful island of Virgin Gorda, this nineteen-acre, impeccable property with ten bedrooms is set on a scene of sweeping white sand beaches, gently lapping crystal waters and thriving, lush tropical greenery. With a choice of accommodation options set across five villas, this is a perfect home- away-from-home for large families or groups travelling together, who wish to benefit from additional space and freedom.

Along with unrivalled privacy and unparalleled views, the estate offers some of the most luxurious touches you could wish for. The 68-foot yacht, 'Xanadu', is provided exclusively for use by guests who wish to see their surroundings in style, while an infinity-edge pool, a fully equipped fitness room, a sauna and steam room and a fabulously plush cinema room offer all the comforts you could desire.

The property itself is wonderfully harmonised with the surrounding environment. Paths wind through the enchanting gardens - where you might spot some of the native and Polynesian carvings - down to the peaceful coconut grove and out to the beachfront, where, at night, you must experience the beautiful bonfire nights set out for you by the service team. Nestled among the granite boulders, the architecture is an Asian inspired vision, with Japanese tile roofing and a beautiful Balinese Beach House. There is no denying, though, that this is first and foremostly a Caribbean property, with bright, airy and cheerful interiors, made extra special by the warm and friendly service provided by the dedicated team of twenty villa hosts.

Split across five separate houses, the ten individual bedroom suites and living areas have been individually decorated to enhance the beautiful tropical surroundings, with high ceilings and large, French windows capturing the abundant natural light, inviting guests to fling them open and welcome in the refreshing island breeze.

Villa Exterior:+
External facilities at the villa

A stunning infinity-edge pool overlooks the gardens, along with a poolside terrace complete with comfortable chairs, sun loungers and parasols opening up from the living room with wide French doors. An all-weather, fully flood-lit Astroturf tennis court can also be found, though the highlight for many is the inclusion of the 68-foot luxury motor yacht, Xanadu. Always on standby and fully crewed, the yacht allows guests to take a tranquil day out on the water and explore neighbouring bays and coves.

Set on the front of the fabulous white sand beach lapped with pristine waters, you will find a private Balinese Beach House, discovered in Bali itself before being deconstructed and re-assembled in Valley Trunk, offering a stunning place to dine and relax. Paths wind through the property, weaving around dramatic boulders, beautiful foliage and palm groves, with lots of hidden secrets along the way. Guests are provided with electric carts to escort them across the property if they so wish, or embark on a nature walk past the estate grounds and out to the neighbouring bays.

Staff:+
Villa staff details

Operating under the direction of General Manager Chris Tilling, twenty members of staff form the team that provides seamless service to all guests, sharing a wealth of local knowledge.

Leisure:+
Diving

A PADI Instructor can guide guests on open water diving excursions down to shipwrecks and reefs below, and offer PADI Certification in the swimming pool beforehand, if required. Anglers can take part in an excursion on a professionally equipped charter with experienced crew, and venture out to the popular North Drop, a shelf teeming with Marlin, Tuna and Swordfish. The reliable winds and calm waters also make ideal conditions for wind surfing, kite surfing, hobie cats, lasers and jet skis, which are all readily available around the area, while paddle boards and glass bottom kayaks are available on the property.

Health & Fitness

A fully equipped private gym is on offer at Valley Trunk, where guests who wish to keep up with their fitness routine may request the assistance of a personal trainer. A private yoga instructor can also be requested to guide lessons in serene locations, while spa treatments may also be arranged to provide treatments in the privacy of your own room or at a chosen location in the grounds, before or after a relax in the sauna or steam room.

In Addition

The fully crewed 68-foot Bertram luxury motor yacht, boasting a full galley, three air conditioned cabins, a large dining area and watersports platform is a true highlight of Valley Trunk. With use of an on board dingy, guests can venture back to the shore of nearby bays and islets, island hopping makes for a fantastic day out, along with a gourmet lunch provided by Chef Bernard Guilhaudin.

For a day out on land, there is plenty to do nearby, and villa hosts of Valley Trunk will be more than happy to advise and help arrange any daytrip you wish to take on. The National Park of Gorda Peak Trail is wonderful for hikers, who can walk up to the lookout tower at the peak, and see the world’s smallest gecko who call it home. The Baths are a natural wonder, and are also a special sight to see – the granite boulders, sheltered lagoons and grottos tucked between white sand beaches are great for exploring. The Copper Mine Historical Site is nearby too, for a slower pace, made up of the ruins of a prominent landmark that sits on the cliffs of the south-eastern tip of Virgin Gorda.
