"Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful villa. It is a spectacular home and setting, and we enjoyed it so much. We had some great times on the island, snorkelling and exploring various beaches, including Spring Bay, Savannah Bay, of course Mahoe, and Little Trunk and the Baths. We enjoyed dinner at Chez Bamboo, Fat Virgin, and your lovely deck. We sailed a cat at Bitter End, rented a 30 foot boat at Leverick and explored Norman Island, visited Willy T, and Little Dix. It was a wonderful time and the people we met were all lovely and so friendly. More to do next time, and Dean and I are definitely thinking about making more trips to VG as we approach the 'freedom 55' stage of life! We also stopped in San Juan for a couple days which we also enjoyed immensely. Enjoy your little piece of paradise - we can't wait to get back some day."

"Love, Love, Love this place. Mahoe Bay is a lovely beach. We snorkeled at least two times a day and always saw something new and different. The house is perfect. The view from the deck made it hard to leave each day. Some days we didn't. Our first time to Virgin Gorda will not be our last."
Quarre and Young, Palo Alto, California - June 9 -19th, 2009
"What an absolutely marvelous home. We truly enjoyed this bit of heaven on earth and look forward to returning year after year."
The Hayes Family - November 2008
"You have succeeded in crating paradise in paradise! Life at Adagio could not have been more pleasant or enjoyable for me and my wife . . . and later on our daughter. We stayed long enough to fall in love with Virgin Gorda and its rich vista's and underwater marvels.
"Your home is elegant and thoughtfully designed. The seascape from your patio is forever etched in our minds (and recorded on camera for screen savers) we enjoyed the constant breezes and numerous meals on the patio, and hoisted many toasts to you both as we watched the magnificent sunsets unfold behind George Dog."
Charles and Carolyn Moyer - New Hope, Penn - June 2008
"Loved your beautiful Adagio! What a gorgeous setting here in Virgin Gorda. Thank you for a wonderful vacation and break from out cold winter."

"Everything was perfect - except we didn't stay longer! Thanks for a wonderful getaway"

“This is an extraordinary house that left us with many unforgettable memories. Thanks for sharing it with us.”
The Iwan Family - April, 2006
“Dear MacDonald Family; Adagio Villa is a very special and we thank you for sharing it with us. We were here from Texas and enjoying our 3rd trip to Mahoe Bay, and could not have had a more relaxing or beautiful vacation. This is a very warm and friendly place in which to enjoy family and friends in a beautiful setting.”
The Gunn’s and the Wright’s - San Antonio, Texas March 2006
“We are leaving today to return home. Even though we live in Florida, this vacation has been Paradise on Earth. My niece was married this week and I just cannot imagine a more beautiful setting for such and event.
Adagio represents just what it means “relaxed and Laid back”. As to the lack of cable or satellite I am with you – this is a place for families to re-connect and enjoy each others company with out the distractions of the outside world.
Virgin Gorda is a great blend of seclusion and activities. We hope to return next year – your villa had all the comforts of home. It makes you feel like “its time to smell the roses and re-connect with yourself. Thanks for creating such a beautiful villa to share with our family.”
Walker Family et al. – Tampa, Florida November, 2005
"Thanks for giving us a wonderful place to stay. This was our 5TH time we have rented a villa and this is by far our favorite. We appreciated the fact that the kitchen was so modern and well stocked. The villa is beautiful and of course our favorite spot for ‘limin’ was the balcony where we could enjoy the magnificent view.”
The Bagnel’s, Wilson’s, McDaniel’s and Anderson’s – June, 2004
“Your house is beautiful, however I’ll miss getting up early every morning and going to Dunkin’ Donuts and I’ll miss going to McDonald’s for lunch and Taco Bell for dinner, I’ll miss all the traffic lights and the cars blowing their horns, I’ll miss cable TV and the Centralplex movies. I’ll miss the ocean at Long Island, NY; the water there is so much colder. I also miss the crowded beaches like Coney Island. So if you want to go to heaven without dying, I suggest you come here.”
The Lennox’s – Youngstown, NY - April, 2003
“We had a great, great vacation. We are the Cornell’s and the Jessiman’s. I’m Schuyler. I will never forget this vacation. . . . I really like you house, it is wonderful! We will definitely come back; Clarkie and Cynthia are great cooks – the food they cook is delishish (sic). I like your house so much I want to get married here and have my honeymoon here. I am only 8 ½ so I have a long way to go before that will happen. Everyone loves the pool – it is so nice to have one on a hot, hot day. The snorkeling here is awesome. I saw at least 60 fish. You have such a great view of the ocean. Did you know that you have a growing banana tree in the back garden? We had a absolutely great time. Love Schuyler
The Cornell’s and the Jessiman’s, Maryland - March 2003
“We all absolutely loved Adagio. The villa is decorated beautifully and there is absolutely everything here one could possibly need. The view is breath-taking from any balcony here. Love to return next year.
Natale Family – Scotch Plains, NJ – March, 2003
“Your villa is wonderful! What a place to spend with family – the island is so inviting it mesmerizes you”
Mike and Renee B – Butte Montana – January, 2003
"We shall return – Thank you so much for your little slice of heaven.”
