A very special private waterfront, Virgin Gorda villa on its own private peninsula. This 6-bedroom home sits at the end of Mattie Point, with water on three sides and Gorda Peak behind.
South Sound is a spectacular secluded area of Virgin Gorda where you hear the waves breaking on the reef and your neighbors are pelicans, turtles and fish. To one side you'll see the Hurricane Hole and to the other is Great Hill. On the far side of Great Hill are fun places to visit such as Biras Creek, Saba Rock, and Bitter End Yacht Club, all on Virgin Gorda. Swim in the infinity edge pool overlooking the sound or snorkel off the private dock to some of the best underwater viewing on the island of Virgin Gorda. Thrill seekers may even want to try out the villa sailboard on South Sound.

THE BEST PLACE TO STAY IN ALL VIRGIN ISLANDS
Once again our stay at South Sound Villa was fantastic! There was a total of 5 of us. We celebrated my daughter's 20th birthday. There are plenty of places to relax by yourself or as a group. The constant ocean breezes and tranquility were amazing. What is listed here on the website about the Villa is exactly what you get, actually the pictures do not do it justice it is better. The views from every room of this villa are just unbelievable. From every room you can hear the ocean and feel the breezes from the ocean as you fall asleep. Wonderful.The caretakers Lynda and Liston are just great she called and stopped in to check on us, and whatever our need they fulfilled. We stayed here last year and were pleasantly surprised at the improvements that were made (it was already perfect), a new refrigerator with ice maker, new kitchen items like silverware etc., repainted, new chair hammock (which everyone loved and was in constant use), new boat and motor, updated sound system and new screens, just to mention a few!! We now have made friends in town with restaurant owners and townspeople. It truly feels like home. We again had 2 locals go into the sound off the dock and catch our dinner-LOBSTERS!! The owner Thornsten could not be nicer he helps with renting your SUV, restaurant recommendations and actually any thing you need. If you are looking to stay in the Virgin Islands this is the only place to stay. I HIGHLY Recommend it to anyone, period!!!!! ”
South Sound Villa is Fantastic!!!!
I and my family and friends-6 altogether cannot express in words what a super time we had at South Sound Villa. Mr Cook the owner was very helpful with all the arrangements from which ferry to take, restaurants, and sightseeing. What is on the listing is exactly what it is beautiful and serene. The caretaker Lynda stopped by and took care of all of our needs. We all relaxed in different parts of the villa, there are so many areas you can relax by yourself or if you want to have the group too.The views and the constant ocean breeze were amazing, at night you can hear the Ocean while enjoying the breezes while you fall asleep. We had the locals catch us lobster and they delivered it right to the dock at South Sound villa. i would reccommend it to ANYONE. We will be there again next year or sooner. Thanks for the great vacation. Dr Joe”
