Here’s a link to a great overview of the BVIs. Though no mention of Sunset Watch Villa , the article does give a very concise history of the area.
Welcome to Virgin Gorda Island Paradise !
Sonny Franklin was best described by one of our recent guests as a “gentle soul.” We couldn’t agree more. Sonny’s a veteran of the cruise ship industry (that’s where he picked up his prodigious towel folding skills) and a native of St Lucia. He worked at Nail Bay Resort where Ajit recognized his work ethic, honesty, and people skills. Sonny’s the “go to guy” for the villa guests. He makes it his business to know what’s happening island wide and treats our guests like the extended family members they are. We’re so glad to have Sonny on the Sunset Watch Villa team.
Sunset Watch Villa now offers each of our guests a complimentary bag of organically grown (and certified) Cafes De La Luna coffee from Finco Dos jeffes, located in the mountains of Boquette, Panama. The region’s rich volcanic soil and ideal climate have recently produced some of the highest rated coffees in the world.
Additionally, each Sunset Watch guest is encouraged to sample this high grade java with the latest in coffee tasting technology with a complimentary Smell the Coffee travel mug.
Coffee aroma has 800-1000 scent components, while your tongue has only 4 basic tastes, so smelling the coffee is essential to get the full-bodied taste you enjoy! Smell the Coffee travel mugs are specially designed to eliminate this problem- using a patented food-friendly membrane, our coffee lids allow aroma to pass freely to your nose without the risk of spilling or leaking.
So when you awake from your peaceful night of rest in our idyllic beachfront retreat, you can now enjoy a fresh brewed (and ground: we provide the Cafes De La Luna beans and each unit possess a coffee grinder) Panamanian cup of Joe. Pour your brew into the travel mug we’ve provided (and it’s your to keep!) and stroll down to the pool, pool deck, or a walk on our secluded beach. You won’t lose the flavor nor the heat of this wonderful organic brew.

At Sunset Watch Villa we set high standards. Our goal is to exceed the expectations of our villa guests. We’re used to getting compliments and welcome all feedback. But this blog postfrom recent guest and Caribbean blogger Linda Thompkins blew us away. Thanks Linda. We can’t wait for your next visit.
Linda Thompkins, well known Caribbean blogger and traveler is staying at Sunset Watch Villa this week. You can read here comments about the villa and Virgin Gorda here. We’ve worked awfully hard this past year restoring the Villa’s reputation as Virgin Gorda’s best. We thanks Linda for sharing her impression of our results.
