From the Editor

Christmas comes but once a year and we at VIPY always attempt an extra special effort to bestow a pleasurable, visual feast in our publication to go alongside your turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and Brussel sprouts.

We hope not to disappoint, opening with a feature exhibiting the rare beauty Katitche Point Greathouse. The architectural finesse of this extremely popular vacation villa has won awards and countless magazine features. Currently for sale, this is an investment opportunity as unique as the property itself.

Following, we return to the BVI’s past to understand what formed the foundations of the legendary Leverick Bay Resort and Marina and the transformation of the North Sound VG area.
