Thank You – From the Editor


First and foremost, a huge thank you from us at VIPY.

We greatly appreciate all who were able to participate in Virgin Islands Property & Yacht Readers’ Choice Awards – the best competition and event we’ve had yet! Thank you to Veuve Clicquot and Caribbean Cellars who brought this annual landmark occasion to new heights and to all nominees and winners, fashioning this event’s evolution. Our photo feature inside highlights the great moments of this year’s ceremony; readers, thank you again for making it what it was.

Our first feature for November unveils OBMI’s new managing director Marvin E Flax and celebrates the architectural firm’s long term service to the BVI and the globe. The company has achieved multiple design feats of awe in the Territory alone and progresses with an ethos that will witness an increasingly attractive portfolio.

USVI’s La Dolce Vita in St Thomas is a majestic property of European design influence – a gem in a premier gated community that stands as our exclusive feature property.

We sail back into the past with Yates Associates Construction Company, looking at the North Sound area of Virgin Gorda in the 1960s – a very different place from the bustling, billionaire yacht playground it is now; but how did this become so?

BVI HomeSense provides advice to those selling property in these slower market periods, Yacht Spotlight beams upon Saboré, a 58-ft Privilege catamaran offering a luxury yacht charter service, and From Sea Level unleashes ‘the mousse’ in chef Megan’s tantalising dessert.

Our concluding pieces help us to get organised with the assistance of Things We Love products this month, show us the spectacular line up presented by BVI Theatres Series for this season’s entertainment, and take us to a natural organic theme with VIPY Style & Beauty items sourced by our fashion expert Pearlette Wintz.

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