Loads of Prizes for You and more…


It’s been quite a while since we did this…

…but the time has emerged. In this month’s issue, we place the power in your hands again.

Following our Readers’ Choice awards ceremony where you voted the outcome of the best people, places, and services in the BVI, we now reintroduce our VIPY Reader Survey. We want the magazine to be its best and your assistance is required in this easy questionnaire; naturally, we offer rather pleasant incentives to enlist your valued feedback – make sure to visit us online to participate as you will not be disappointed with what you can win.

This month’s cover feature property on Water’s Edge reminds us of the wonder that is Virgin Gorda – the island’s incredible setting has been blended with the home to create an alluring natural residence that appears as if grown out of the beautiful scenery.

Our Villa Showcase grants us Solace literally and metaphorically as we review the vacation rental’s fairy-tale visage, transporting us to the comforts of nostalgia and the relaxation of Caribbean paradise.


Elemental Water Makers make their debut in our publication as a unique company that enable a cost efficient and eco-friendly solution to the water supply in the Virgin Islands.

Yacht Spotlight shines upon Xenia 50, a combination of deluxe dwellings and an accommodating crew, while the CYS talk to us about the latest information on the charter yacht industry – very important as one of the more significant areas of the BVI economy.

From Sea Level bestows a Thanksgiving delight with our SV Lolalita chef treating us to a recipe for Pecan Pie Cheesecake with Salted Caramel – very tasty. Our maritime historian scribe asks you—the readers—how sailors navigated without the electronic advances we have today requesting that you contact him with any insights. And we have an update on the cruise ship pier project – this is something the BVI community has been hearing in the media for several years so its grand unveiling should be quite the festival.

Glittery items are the Things We Love this month as House advertise more stylish household items. Artists’ Corner with Julia Rusu shows us the skill of art on the human canvas and, the Movember month takes on a new theme; a night of ‘Movember at the Movies’ with MOscars – this is definitely not to be missed as the annual event is always a great success in raising awareness and funds towards its noble cause.

Wishing you enjoyment of the LAND, SEA, and LIFE of the Virgin Islands

PS – Don’t forget – free entry in our Reader Giveaway courtesy of Ocean Surfari Sport Fishing Charters – this is the last month to BE IN FOR THE WIN
