Adagio Villa is a dream come true for us. We have been traveling the Caribbean for 35 years and have visited the Virgin Islands many times, often renting homes as we preferred the space, facilities, and ambiance versus that of a hotel. Long ago, we fell in love with the beauty and natural wonders of the British Virgin Islands, particularly Virgin Gorda. This area also has lots of history and rich culture, great people, and of course, beautiful beaches and clear, turquoise water.
As of July 2021, we became the fortunate new owners of Adagio Villa. We are grateful to Brian and Marion Macdonald, who built and cared for this wonderful property. What attracted us to Adagio is its size (5 ocean-view bedrooms), excellent design (two buildings separated by a pool/patio), heavy-duty construction, and an unmatched location on Mahoe Bay, Virgin Gorda. Adagio also shares access to the excellent, artificial turf tennis court of Mahoe Bay. Tennis lovers (like us) will find playing tennis here a real treat and the court is easy on the knees!
Mahoe Bay features a marvelous beach (1/3 mile long), coral reefs and glorious aquamarine, warm water that is perfect for swimming, kayaking, and snorkeling. Often you can watch pelicans and turtles, who make their home here too. Boating, jet-skiing, exploring the Baths, and island-hopping are other entertaining activities in addition to relaxing by the pool or beach.
Adagio is a place where dreams have come true for us--and will for you too.
The British Virgin Islands (BVI) is a collection of 60 islands, cays, and rocks forming the northern extremity of the Leeward Islands in the eastern Caribbean.
Located 100 kilometers (62 miles) east of Puerto Rico these islands have a balmy, subtropical climate. Temperatures average about 85 degrees Fahrenheit. At night the temperatures drop about four to eight degrees.
The islands of the BVI form almost an oval around Tortola, the largest island. They are volcanic in origin, except Anegada which is formed of coral and limestone and is the lowest-lying. On land, the BVI's are endowed with fine mountain ranges, small valleys, and little flat fertile agriculture land.
For most of the recorded history, since at least the 17th century, the BVI has been a crown colony of the United Kingdom. The government has been a British Overseas Territory since 1672. The Head of State is HM Queen Elizabeth II, represented locally by a Governor appointed by the UK. There is a legislative assembly headed by a Chief Minister with local representatives elected by BVI citizens called “belongers”. There are many ex-pats and other workers who arrive each year together with villa owners from the US, Canada, and Europe termed “non-belongers”. The language spoken is English and the currency is US Dollars.
