Why Travel to the BVI?
The British Virgin Islands is one of the most idyllic places to go on a Caribbean vacation, and BVI villa rentals are some of the Caribbean’ finest.
The BVI’s are a chain of 60 stunningly beautiful islands that situated in the heart of the Sir Francis Drake Channel.
The islands are dotted amongst the bluest waters imaginable. The BVI is famous for being a sailor’s paradise offering calm azure waters, incredible diving and some of the most breath-taking scenery and white sandy beaches.
Many of the islands are uninhabited and are an absolute treasure trove of soft white sands, coral reefs, and crystal clear calm waters. Just fifteen of the British Virgin Islands are in fact inhabited, and they each feature some of the best BVI villas for rent.
The BVI is also famous for scuba diving, and the islands are home to some of the best dive sites in the world. There are also plenty of shipwrecks to discover.
Why Book with Exceptional Villas?
On a recent visit to the BVI, I had the opportunity to view some of the best BVI Villa Rentals, both Tortola villas and Virgin Gorda villas. At Exceptional Villas, we feature a lovely selection of properties directly on the beach and also on the hillside offering amazing views and fantastic sunsets views.
It’s not all about being on the beach.
I like to explore many of the beaches and having a villa on the hillside will ensure more privacy, better views and gives you a better opportunity for you to explore the island and visit many of the beaches rather than just one.
We only feature personally inspected villas, and each one of our BVI villas is hand-picked by our team. We only want to send our guests to villas we know, love and trust. We guarantee you that our team has been there, seen it and stayed in many of our villas thus we promise to offer our honest opinion and best tips.
What’s more, we offer a full complimentary concierge service ensuring every aspect of your vacation is taken care of, allowing you to have a hassle-free trip where you can enjoy every minute spent with family and friends.

BVI Villa Rentals: The Top 5
1. Katitche Point
Katitche Point is one of the nicest BVI villas.
The villa comes with five luxury bedrooms perfect for a family gathering or a friend’s getaway. The villa boasts an incredible sea view from the stunning pool and terrace. Each room has a veranda with a stunning sea view. The villa’s spectacular horizon edged pool is often featured on the front pages of various prestigious magazines.
What I love about this villa is the incredible views, amazing privacy, and Mahoe Bay Beach is just a three-minute walk away.
2. The Cliff Penthouse at Oil Nut Bay
The Cliff Penthouse at Oil Nut Bay is one of the nicest BVI Villa Rentals.
I had the pleasure of staying here on my last visit to Virgin Gorda. The one-bedroom penthouse suite is located at Oil Nut Bay Resort which is one of our Top 6 luxury Caribbean resorts. The property is nestled on a private peninsula on the tip of Virgin Gorda.
The Suite is by far one of the nicest and is located on the cliff top with the most amazing view of the ocean. The penthouse comes with a private pool and an unobstructed view of the Caribbean.
I love the expansive glass windows which make you feel like you are almost in the ocean. Another one of my favorite features of the Penthouse is that it has been luxuriously furnished by FENDI Casa.
You also have access to all the onsite facilities at the property including tennis courts, horse riding, spa, beach, water-sports, etc.
The location is one of the most romantic places to visit in the world!
Villa Batu is one of the nicest BVI Villas for rent in Virgin Gorda.
Located next to the islands famous rock formations “The Baths” the villa boasts a unique design and blends seamlessly into the natural landscape that surrounds its.
The villa comes with four bedrooms and has a stunning terrace with remarkable sea views. This beautiful villa is just a few minutes’ walk from the Baths. This world-famous geological rock formation is known for its giant granite boulders, rock pools, and white sand beaches.
A trip to Virgin Gorda is not complete without a visit to the Baths, and Batu villa offers the perfect location to do just this.
4. Peter Island – Falcons nest
Falcon’s Nest villa is a stunning six bedroom villa located on Peter Island in the British Virgin Islands.
It is by far one of the top BVI resorts. Made up of 1,800 lush tropical acres, Peter Island is the largest private island in the British Virgin Islands. Each guest staying at this luxury BVI villa has complete access to the resort and the on-site amenities which include a stunning selection of beaches, communal pool, water-sports, spa and so much more.
What I love about Falcon’s nest villa is the excellent staff that will look after your every need. The team includes a butler, a chef, and a housekeeper to ensure you will be pampered throughout your entire stay.
If you like the idea of a villa but don’t want to be too isolated and would like activities, amenities and a restaurant nearby, then this resort is perfect for you.
5. Sea Fans Villa
Sea View villa is one of our most popular BVI villas.
Located directly on Mahoe Bay Beach in Virgin Gorda, this stunning 4-bedroom beach front home is just steps from the ocean. The villa comes with a private pool and is perfect for a family vacation.
The beach here is what makes this location truly special. On my last trip to Virgin Gorda, I spent an entire day on Mahoe Bay Beach, and I honestly did not want to leave.
The water here is so calm and is ideal for swimming. Even if you don’t stay at our villas on Mahoe Bay, you can come and visit the beach and enjoy an entire day. I would highly recommend you bring a picnic with you.
We are lucky enough to have visited just about every Caribbean Island in our quest to find the best BVI Villa Rentals and we are convinced that there are few places on this earth that are more naturally beautiful than the British Virgin Islands.
Of course, it does take a little longer to get to the islands, but the journey is so stunning and worth every minute. Our passion is travel, and I would love to hear from you.
