Living on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands
Diversity and natural beauty: from majestic views on tropical hill tops to a seemingly untouched North Shore with secluded white sandy beaches to the shops and restaurants of Road Town. Most residents stay close to Road Town and enjoy living in the surrounding hills, but there is so much more. The sailing enthusiasts aim for the view of Sir Francis Drake channel on the South side and proximity to world renowned marinas, while beach and surf lovers enjoy country life on the green hillsides from West End all the way to Josiah’s Bay.


Living on Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands
An exquisite way of life amidst the rich & famous, with pristine white sandy beaches and extraordinary sailing, whilst enjoying the privacy and tranquility of a small island community. The areas of Windy Hill, Coppermine and Spring Bay with pleasant, rolling hills, provide tranquil living with close proximity to the Baths. From the west side up towards the exclusive resorts on North Sound, the focus is on refined, exceptional and luxurious living, which makes it one of the most coveted islands in the world. Richard Branson, amongst others, put Virgin Gorda on the map and now attracts wealthy new neighbours from all over the world.


Living on Scrub Island in the British Virgin Islands
Luxurious living alongside a world class resort & marina on an island, which has provided sanctuary to world travellers since Christopher Columbus first visited. Scrub Island offers superb amenities along with the flexibility to create your own oasis. Although it is a relatively small island, all the amenities are readily available such as restaurants, bars, gourmet market, beaches, health club and various water sport activities. Its central location offers close proximity to the airport but more importantly to various hidden treasures, all just a short boat ride away.


Living on Jost van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands
Timeless Caribbean island life with your toes constantly touching the sand. Enjoy your cocktail at one of the many world famous beach bars on the west side. White Bay Beach, which is one of the BVI’s premier vacation destinations, was made famous by Kenny Chesney in his song “No shirt, No shoes, No problem”. The hillsides provide magnificent views of nearby islands including St. John and St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Choose to live on the eastern side for the spectacular views, and more importantly, proximity to Little Jost Van Dyke, Diamond Cay and the picturesque islands Green Cay, Sandy Spit and Sandy Cay.


Living on Great Camanoe in the British Virgin Islands
A daily ride in a small runabout is part of the joy of living on this unique island, helping to fulfil the pleasures of this glorified Robinson Crusoe existence. With almost no amenities and back to basics mentality you will truly unplug from daily life. What sets this island gem apart are the incredible views, often allowing you to see from Anegada to St. Croix. The other captivating differentiators are the “big skies” at night and during the daytime the protected and cosy feeling you get from looking down on the reef of Marina Cay.


Living on Anegada in the British Virgin Islands
A world apart, with luminous sandy beaches, miles of unspoiled reefs all around the coral island and, unlike the other islands, almost flat. Not many choose to live this secluded life, but those who can and do, remain as close to nature and its glorious beauty as one possibly can. Plus, the chance to indulge daily in eating, reputedly, the Caribbean’s best lobster.
