Symbio Vacation Rental

Please be aware that this villa will not be available from August 15th through October 1st, 2018 as a safety precaution during hurricane season.

So very sophisticated and elegant, Symbio celebrates superb artistic design and detailed fine-craftsman execution throughout every space of this stunning two-bedroom, fully air-conditioned villa set on two-thirds of an acre.

On Symbio's main floor, a beautifully-furnished great room shares space with a stunning open-plan gourmet kitchen and dining area. In the high-ceilinged great room, handsome mobile wood panels are hung on rails in the great room so that you may slide them around to cover sections of the glass slider doors to prevent glare while watching the large flat-screen satellite TV during the day. The backs of the great room's ingenious upholstered designer sofas easily rotate around to the other side of these couches so you can either face the TV or enjoy the view outside without moving any furniture.

Glass, sliding, pocket doors open completely around the Great Room to incorporate the adjoining wrap-around covered terrace, furnished with a large modular sofa and hung with draperies to draw as you please to keep out sun or rain. More cushioned seating on the terrace overlooks the pool and gardens below, and beyond, azure sea views and fiery tropical sunsets. Angled concrete stairs descend from this terrace to an interim hardwood deck fitted with benches and a picnic table, and continue down to the pool, garden and gym level.

Alongside the Great Room and terrace is Symbio's magnificent kitchen, featuring custom cabinetry lined with bar stools and a domed barrel ceiling done in warm graceful curves of exotic Ipe and maple hardwoods, polished concrete countertops inlaid with sea glass, and equipped with stainless steel Viking appliances. At one end of the kitchen is a bar/coffee nook, and at the other end, a convenient door opens out to Symbio's fully-screened alfresco grill kitchen and wet bar, another comfortable and convivial spot furnished with bar stools at the sleek counter.

Through an archway from the Great Room and kitchen is the dining area. This alluring room boasts curved handcrafted Ipe-wood cabinetry and a large glass dining table with seating for six. Pocket glass slider doors fronting one side of the dining room disappear into the wall, opening up the screened grill kitchen and bar just outside as a bonus space for cocktails and grilling.

Down the hallway is a convenient powder room enhanced with a very unique door - original art sandwiched between glass and hardwood - and a chef's pantry with a large Viking refrigerator and workspace.

Symbio's air-conditioned queen guest suite is at the far end of the corridor, a restful retreat with a bay window seat, a spacious desk, light-blocking window treatments which allow you to sleep as late as you wish, and glass slider doors which open to a private covered verandah hung with pull-draperies for privacy. A concrete staircase conveniently spirals down from this terrace to the pool and gym level, perfect for a private midnight swim and stargazing. This suite's bathroom features a handsome double vanity of polished concrete and wood, and an alfresco rain shower sheltered by an arc of curved glass blocks.

The air-conditioned king master suite is an alluring and very private space, showcasing superb design. Accessed by a contoured staircase ascending near the villa's entrance and completely secluded on Symbio's upper level, this serene suite has a covered breezeway porch (perfect for yoga and massage, or a game of cards) and adjacent, a small step-out balcony which overlooks the pool area. The master suite offers a desk, and from the king bed, an ocean view. The ensuite bath features a richly-designed double vanity of warm wood and highly-polished concrete. For privacy, the WC is tucked behind an artful half-moon wall of tinted glass block; adjoining is the semi-alfresco rain shower, also partially enclosed by opaque glass block.

Down on Symbio's pool level are gardens and giant boulders providing privacy for sunbathing, swimming and relaxing. Sun umbrellas and awnings are placed throughout the grounds, providing shady oases for reading and private moments. The free-form pool has a graduated walk-in entry just like a beach, is chlorine-free and features a fountain. From the pool deck, a wooden walkway leads past an ancient ficus tree to Symbio's well-equipped and air-conditioned gym, which also boasts a shady covered patio with more cushioned seating.

Creatively constructed within and around Virgin Gorda's renowned smooth granite boulders, Symbio offers a bounty of artistic custom-designed features. Arced contours, domes and arches create a soothing serpentine flow of organic color at Symbio enhanced by warm exotic woods, peaked wood-beamed and bamboo-lined ceilings, contemporary designer furnishings, lighting by Murano and Aqua Creations and an eclectic collection of art ranging from original paintings to carved African and ethnic sculpture. Every corner, every space and every detail were carefully laid out and ingeniously accomplished in grand style, resulting in a harmonious, elegant, yet cozy home.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Architecture and eloquence are mixed arts whose end is sometimes beauty and sometimes use." Symbio combines both with sublime originality, inspired style and luxurious comfort...five stars!

Virgin Gorda Travel Guide

An Alluring Sanctuary

This island gem in the British Virgin Islands has remained uncommercialized and pristine, attracting honeymooners and privacy-seekers the world over. Dramatically shaped, the island reminded Christopher Columbus of a reclining woman, so he named it Virgin Gorda. Beach-lovers will enjoy the beautiful stretch of pristine beaches, particularly the Baths, a beach made up of giant granite boulders that form hidden pools and grottos. Vacationers will also enjoy the unique indigenous plants that flourish in the National Parks and can admire the exotic birds and ruins at the Little Fort National Park.

Virgin Gorda is truly one of the most beautiful destinations in the Caribbean, where you can truly get it away from it all and simply relax.
