Villa Delle Palme – Exclusive Feature Property for November

YES! Finally. High Season is fully upon us!

Over the years, it appears like the BVI High Season has expanded and while some would mark its conclusion at the end of April, it’s arguable that a new date might be stapled somewhere in July/August very soon. Many charter companies and restaurants reported a consistent flow of business till mid-summer for the 2013/2014 High Season and some even surpassed that time. Nevertheless, it cannot be disputed that November is its official inception point supported by the influx of snowbirds, the rise in cruise ship visits, and the evolution of the islands’ liveliness from a quiet buzz to widespread frivolity.

The emergence of many events synchronises with High Season’s launch – two very popular examples are the Charter Yacht Society’s BVI Boat Show 6 Nov – 9 Nov, and the globally renowned Movember; a month of charitable activity with a focal point on men the world over, growing whacky moustaches to fund treatment, research, and awareness of prostate cancer, and men’s health. The BVI’s popular End of Movember Party and Prizegiving at Nanny Cay beach on Sunday, November 30 has become a stamp mark in the BVI event Calendar.

With the arrival of the holiday season, our BVI HomeSense column explores reasons why visitors should choose a villa rental in the Caribbean as their soothing retreat. BVI Sotheby’s International Realty presents Villa Delle Palme, a property going beyond satisfaction as a vacation rental and serving as enticement for a buyer seeking more committed residency.

The Yacht Spotlight falls on King’s Ransom this month – a crewed charter boat and an attractive alternative vacation idea to villa rental.

It’s possible you’re bored of hearing it, but one thing we will never stop promoting is the activity of island jumping; it is one of the pleasures of living and visiting the British Virgin Islands. This time in A Tourist in My Own Town, we visited Anegada, known as ‘the drowned island.’ The sight of approaching an island that is entirely flat is astonishing in itself, but the amazement doesn’t pause as you discover the strange geography of the isle that is so unique to the rest of the BVI.

Concluding, we urge you to get out there and start enjoying the many attractions and locations of the BVI– it should be a great season for 2014/2015.

PS-We very much appreciated the letter from Charlie Brigden about our VIPY Readers’ Choice Awards (see letter inside). We definitely intend to make it as informative as possible and are optimistic about our success in this continued pursuit.
