Cypress House is located near The Baths on Virgin Gorda, the third largest of the British Virgin Islands, with a resident population of only 2,500 people. It is a tranquil, unspoiled island that has a year round temperature in the 80's.There are fabulous, boulder strewn, white sand beaches, national parks for walking, water sports, sail or motorboats for charter, deep sea fishing, excellent scuba diving, opportunities to windsurf, water ski, or horseback ride.But, perhaps just as important are the things Virgin Gorda does not have: no high rises, no neon signs, no traffic lights, no casinos, no golf, no movie theaters. Just several excellent restaurants and informal night clubs featuring local bands and performers.
CypressHouse is an elegant get away home. The detail and qualtiy of the house is outstanding and the furnishings are beautiful. Virgin Gorda is a desert like island where a person's cares in this world are forgotten and complete relaxation and renewal can be achieved. The major life decisions to be made each each day are which of the many stunning beaches to go to, and who to take with, Mr. Heineken, Mr. Amstel or Mr. Red Stripe? The local people are very friendly and the pace is slow and appreciative. I recommend highly.
