Anam Cara is every bit as gorgeous as the pictures show. It is brand new (what a treat). Every bedroom is private, well sound proofed, comfortable beds, huge private luxury bathrooms with big soaking tubs and separate tiled showers, and several (if not all) have private outdoor showers. The pool is gorgeous -overlooking the ocean and the patio is huge, with a barbecue pit and bar area. The decks are amazing. The kitchen is gorgeous and well stocked for a huge group of people. The owners are delightful, helpful, honest.
You drive almost a mile on a private dirt road to get to the house. There's only one other house in the distance. You can snorkel in the bay in front of the house (no real beach) but we saw several small manta rays and lobsters and numerous reef fish. the house is close to Leverick Bay for a wonderful dinner in their open air dining room. Great for renting a boat ($100 a day for a little motorboat/dinghy to get all around). Close to the free water taxis to go to Saba Rock or dinner (a must though expensive), and to Bitter End and Biras Creek. (the tuna salad at Fat Virgin Cafe was the best I've ever had). To get anywhere on the island is less than a 30 minute drive. The Baths. Mine Shaft Cafe for sunset dinner and view. Sugarcane Restaurant too. Coco May had great food and an amazing setting. The Food Palace for inexpensive takeout of local food. Mahogany Car Rental was terrific. Virgin Gorda is a gorgeous island. Almost all the beaches were secluded and private (at the height of the season) and had some decent snorkeling from the beach. Don't expect beach chairs and umbrellas etc, except at Little Dix (which is a gorgeous beach and has a wonderful open air restaurant for lunch on the water) And at Bitter End (but it's not the best beach, swimming). We flew non stop to San Juan, had a 5:00 reservation with Air Sunshine, but we got in early enough the escorted us right onto the 2:30 flight and we were swimming at Savannah Bay by 3;30. All very easy.
We're already planning out next trip. Would recommend the place to families, groups of friends. You will love it. You do have to be able to walk up some steps from the driveway to the house...so be prepared for that. And, if you're in the master suite, or one of the second floor rooms...then there's steps inside. The pool suites only require a few stairs.
Anam Cara is the best if you want all the modern conveniences, in a tropical paradise.
