On St. John we will camp in premium eco-tents on an expansive hillside overlooking the southernmost peninsula, with a sea breeze and views of the rugged east coast and calm west coast from your deck.

Each eco-tent is built on a wooden frame above the ground and has regular mattresses, electric lights and fans, a mini-refrigerator, propane stove, running water (non-potable) in the kitchen sink, and a private flush toilet and solar-heated shower.

On Virgin Gorda we will stay in houses scattered among lovely subtropical gardens, about a five-minute walk from an undeveloped sand beach with wonderful snorkeling. Each house has a fully equipped kitchen, outdoor grill, and deck overlooking the coast and distant islands.

On Anegada we will stay in cottages on a white-sand beach surrounded by coral reef. Each cottage has a fully-equipped kitchen, outside deck, and grill.
