With such a significant number of new booking sites springing up, how would you know which is the best site to utilize? Which site offers the best deals? Would it be a good idea for you to book your get-away on VRBO, Airbnb, TripAdvisor, Booking.com, travel agency, or book direct? In this blog, we want to spare you long periods of surfing the net so you can invest more energy enjoying your trip.
1. Booking direct is cheaper
Booking specifically with the property manager is less expensive (no commission) and better for the buyer (no administration charge). In the case of requesting a discount, you will probably get farther dealing with the exclusive property manager versus third parties.
2. Booking direct will give you local knowledge
We live here and no one knows the island better. We know the houses, the shorelines, the trails, and the eateries. With our help we can make sure you choose the right villa for you and your vacation needs.Whether for your family and friends or a romantic getaway.
3. Booking direct can improve your booking experience
Smaller property management agencies can’t contend with the promotional spending plans of bigger brands (like VRBO and Airbnb), so they center around different things like customer service, offering advantages only available to direct bookings.
4. Most agencies will offer a “best-rate guarantee”
A best-rate guarantee means that booking directly through the property management company will result in the lowest price for a particular property.
5. Booking direct protects you from fraudulent listings
A legitimate property manager will never demand that you wire funds as the only means of payment. If the villa you’re considering is dramatically discounted, it’s probably too good to be true. Villas Virgin Gorda is well established and has been in business for over a decade.
Villas Virgin Gorda is a professional property management and booking agency with an inventory of exclusive listings. All of our guests receive personal on-island assistance, knowledgeable reservation staff, and complimentary concierge.
Stop feeling guilty for going on vacation, start using your vacation as a force for good! From a simple cocktail to your villa rental, every dollar you spend will help to rebuild.
BVI Stronger | Episode 6
This video features stunning visuals and moving testimony from locals about the rebuild and recovery of the British Virgin Islands. The BVI Stronger team details how easy and rewarding it was for them to come vacation after Hurricane Irma.
The team shows off all the wonderful sights they visited with the help of local charter companies. Their travels included Tortola, Norman Island, Jost van Dyke, and Virgin Gorda. They also feature some amazing comparisons of the islands immediately after Irma and months later to highlight the progress.
Another great feature of the trip was their ability to volunteer their time and get directly involved in the rebuilding efforts. With the help of All Hands and Hearts, they worked hard to aid in the reconstruction of Elmore Stoutt High School. Whether your vacation is for 5 months or 5 days, you can make an impact.
Above all, they highlight all the local businesses and attractions that are waiting for you. Schedule your vacation now and help in the recovery.
It was once again time for Christmas in July thanks to sponsors like Wally Castro Marine and Dream Yacht Charter! Thousands of people flooded the beach at Pond Bay to celebrate. The event started in 2007 and attracts a fleet of boats from Puerto Rico for fun in Virgin Gorda. The celebration is held to recognize the valuable contribution Puerto Ricans make the BVI.
The event featured two Latin bands, one local band, and a host of DJs, as well as designated swimming areas, food stalls, and games. Thanks to the Puerto Rican Navy! After Hurricane Irma they were the first to respond with much needed relief efforts and supplies. BVI and Virgin Gorda will always be grateful for our close relationship with Puerto Rico and we look forward to celebrating you every year!
