On a very private, spectacular beachfront location, Anam Cara Villa is a unique vacation home located directly on the beach in South Sound, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands. The secluded Villa's spectacular beachfront location is in a BVI designated marine sanctuary near one one of the last undeveloped landscapes on Virgin Gorda. The views off the various decks and balconies range from looking directly down at sea turtles and tropical fish swimming below to the stunning views out to sea with endless waves gently rolling up on the offshore reef. To the sides and behind you are views of the surrounding hills and mountains of Gorda Peak National Park. Your closest neighbors are the parade of marine life below, pelicans and seabirds above and cows grazing serenely on the distant hills...On a very private, spectacular beachfront location, Anam Cara Villa is a unique vacation home located directly on the beach in South Sound, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands.

Anam Cara Villa is comprised of just under 5,000 square feet of tropical modernism architecture spread over two buildings designed for seamless indoor/outdoor living. The five bedrooms are all en-suite. The three large master bedroom suites all have king size beds and large spa bathrooms complete with both indoor and outdoor showers, double vanities and soaking bathtubs. Upstairs in the main house are two additional en-suite bedrooms with private balconies directly over the water below. The main floor features a large gourmet kitchen connected to the outdoor living area through large doors and a unique breakfast bar. The kitchen/dining area merges into the living area with two separate seating areas and stunning sea views. The lower level hosts a media room for watching movies, playing Wii, or just hanging out.
Outside living features 12 separate decks and balconies each with its own unique views. The centerpiece of the outdoor living area is your own horizon edge pool complete with a swim up bar and outdoor sunken kitchen with barbecue. The saltwater pool has both a waterfall and laminar flow water features with fiber optic lighting. All of the indoor and outdoor areas are tiled with natural travertine stone. You can choose to relax on the deck letting the marine and bird life of South Sound entertain you or simply hang out by the pool.
Just a short one mile drive away is the North Sound welcome center and dock where the various free water taxis will take you to the many restaurants, resorts and yacht clubs for drinks, lunch, dinner, shopping, or entertainment. North Sound is a destination unto itself whether it is Biras Creek resort, Bitter End Yacht Club, Saba Rock Resort, Leverick Bay Resort or the new Yacht Club Costa Smeralda Virgin Gorda clubhouse!More

If you want the perfect place to unplug and relax this is it. The views of the ocean are incredible and are available from just about every room in the house. The breeze is constant so be prepared, but it keeps you cool and refreshed....More
I really, really wanted to love Anam Cara. I had looked forward to being there on it's beautiful balconies and in the inviting swimming pool for months. What we got upon arrival, however, was not quite what we had been expecting.
First the good stuff....More

Virgin Gorda is known for its quiet beaches, great sailing, restaurants and friendly residents. Virgin Gorda has some very spectacular beaches that are not crowded or commercialized. We are located in the desirable North Sound end of the Island with all the restaurants and resorts close by. One of our favorite things to do after a beach day is to drive the short one mile to the dock at nearby North Sound. There is a welcome center that serves as the dock for the free scheduled water taxies that take you to the various restaurants and resorts in North Sound. We usually just get on the first one that shows up and that’s where we are going for dinner. These include the Bitter End Resort, Biras Creek Resort, Saba Rock and the new YCCs Yacht Club.
The beaches range from the world famous...
