Finding the right home and/or the right investment is a significant undertaking. There are many factors in play and working through how you want to use the property and who will be with you will determine how we shortlist. A multigenerational family home will need a floor plan that works for younger and older members whilst an investment which will operate as a short-term rental will need to cater to an international and discerning audience where high performance and comfort are key. It might be that it will be a hybrid of both. Whether you want a one-bedroom apartment to spend the winter months or are looking for a larger estate we will ensure that you are aware of everything that is available for purchase.
Without a central listing database in the BVI buyers can often find themselves working with multiple realtors. Red Coral’s searches include the listings that match the scope of requirement regardless of who holds the listing giving a single point of contact. Our focus is always on the buyer and making sure they find the right property. We source, negotiate, and secure properties on behalf of buyers seeking a private residence, a second home or a property for rental or investment and on many occasions, we do this before the property has come onto the open market. We are independent and privately owned and we offer objective and impartial advice whilst also providing buyers with complete discretion and anonymity.
Once the right property is identified Red Coral will help throughout the sales process. We will make introductions to engineers, designers, architects, lawyers and bankers as needed. We remain a committed partner throughout the entire process and we look forward to celebrating a successful and smooth closing with our clients at the end of each transaction.
At Red Coral we understand that ‘luxury’ means different things to different people. We represent a portfolio of villas to suit all requirements from beautiful, quiet properties with discreet, almost invisible staff to a discernible team including onsite full-time managers and chefs. For guests not requiring a full-time chef, we can recommend the best bars, restaurants and arrange for a local or gourmet takeaway delivered to your villa.
All our villas are professionally managed, cleaned and maintained to the highest standards including all basic expectations, private pool, airconditioned bedrooms, Wi-Fi, a selection of games, hairdryers, quality linens and toiletries, provisioning pre-arrival and an updated guide with frequently asked questions and concierge services.
Many of our villas have water sports including snorkelling equipment, paddle boards and kayaks. We can also arrange for you to hire any from local, reputable suppliers. We work with only the best yachts and motor vessels to meet your diving and day charter needs. With over 60 islands, islets and cays to explore in under 60 square miles, we highly recommend that you spend at least one of your days discovering our stunning beaches, spectacular coral and fun spots. Our car hire and taxi companies offer a range of well-maintained vehicles for you to explore the islands by road. If you want to explore the entire BVI in one day, we can arrange a helicopter for a breathtakingly beautiful, unforgettable experience.
If you want to explore nature, head to the spa, be on the water or just enjoy the warm beauty of the BVI we can help you plan your stay. We love children and grandparents and can arrange for specialist equipment and foods as needed (walkers, buggies cots, high-chairs, stairgates etc).
All villas and hotels in the BVI are subject to service charge and 10% hotel accommodation tax which will be added on to your rate and prepaid prior to arrival.
Relocating to the BVI is exciting but learning about the rental opportunities can be overwhelming. Identifying what location will work best and what you get for your money can be challenging. In turn if you are already in the BVI and moving out of your family home for the first time or need a bigger property as your family expands it is not always easy to know what you should expect to spend to get what you need.
We have included a guide to the key rental locations in our Members Lounge as well as a guide to what you can expect to pay.
We manage a very small portfolio of properties for clients who have investments here in the BVI but who reside elsewhere. Our involvement is fully scalable from complete property and financial management to simply offering help on an adhoc basis to find the right suppliers to ensure the property is kept in optimum condition.
Consultancy is at the very core of what we do and underpins our approach. We offer it readily and freely to all of our clients. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch or join us at our office for a coffee to discuss the market, buying and selling trends and the opportunities to acquire real estate here in the BVI. We produce quarterly reports for all our clients but if you need ongoing strategic and tactical support, we can be retained to provide market intelligence and sales activity and trends on a more regular basis. If it is your first investment or if you wish to expand your portfolio, we will always endeavour to provide you with the information you need that will enable you to make the right decisions.
We at Red Coral pride ourselves on providing an end-to-end service so our clients are supported in any way that is needed. We can assist in preparing for your arrival and finding the perfect base be that a vacation villa or boutique resort. We can also advise on private or commercial flight options and transfers via water taxi or ferry to the BVI. On arrival we work with our VIP agents to facilitate smooth transfers through Customs and Immigration so we can get you to your home or hotel without delays. For those travelling on private planes we can arrange for overnight accommodation for pilots and provisioning for return trips.
Whilst in the BVI Red Coral have a private suite at our office on Tortola which is available for client use. Make yourself comfortable with a cold drink or a Nespresso coffee and feel free to use the conference facilities for meetings as needed.
When everything else works you can focus on what brought you to the BVI in the first instance. Let us welcome you to be BVI and care for you whilst you are here.
