On the Eastern tip of Virgin Gorda, beyond the renowned North Sound – with its small group of private islands and resorts, sits Oil Nut Bay – a luxury residential resort community; and one of the greatest achievements of its visionary creator, David V. Johnson’s lifetime.

The topography of the 400-acre property is breathtaking – the north side has a coral reef teeming with sea life and aquamarine water all the way to sister island, Anegada and on the south side, steep and majestic cliffs rise out of the wild expanse of open ocean.

Within this varied landscape, Oil Nut Bay’s developer has created fifteen neighbourhoods all with their unique visual aspects and features to appeal to individual lifestyles and preferences.

Two of these are located on the Marina Village side of the Resort – a full-service, state-of-the-art marina that includes 101 berths, accommodating yachts up to 130-feet (40 meters) close by. Here you will also find Nova, an over-water restaurant and bar with a suspended infinity pool, a coffee shop, a market, ladies’ and menswear boutiques and private watersports lessons and rentals at Deep Bay Watersports.

Ocean Neighbourhood

Offering unobstructed ocean views towards Necker and Eustatia islands in the distance, the Ocean Neighbourhood is made up of a total of nine homesites and is a short walk from the Marina Village.

Ocean Villa Two is positioned at the water’s edge with zero setback and boasts 120-feet of ocean frontage. The stunning 2,440-square-foot, contemporary three-bedroom home is designed perfectly to complement the natural beauty of its surroundings.

Every room and living space makes the most of endless ocean views framed by floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors that open fully onto a generous over-water balcony and infinity pool.

The villa comes fully designer furnished and is ready to move in. Oil Nut Bay welcomes inquiries for Ocean Villa Two at $7,950,000.

Deep Bay Neighbourhood

Also, a short walk from the Marina Village, Deep Bay Neighbourhood is made up of a total of six homesites.

Perched atop an elevated site is Deep Bay Villa One, a 3,105-square-foot, four-bedroom developer-built home. Scheduled for completion in April 2024, this contemporary, island-chic home features 180-degree views of the Caribbean Sea and neighbouring islands.

On the villa’s upper level, a penthouse-style principal suite, a high-end designer kitchen and an infinity pool, while the lower level features king-sized guest suites. Oil Nut Bay welcomes inquiries for Deep Bay One at $7,550,000.

Ownership Benefits

Oil Nut Bay’s homeowners have full access to the private resort amenities and services – including the Beach Club featuring three pools, restaurants, bars, watersports, gym, tennis and pickleball courts.

Homeowners can opt to place their villa into the exclusive rental management programme, extending the Oil Nut Bay experience to rental guests, while offsetting their expenses. They can also take advantage of comprehensive property management services including housekeeping, landscaping care, maintenance and much more.

All services are closely coordinated through a dedicated Villa Manager. Whether on or off the island, you can feel confident that your home will be consistently cared for to the highest standards.
