Amateras was built in and around the natural boulders yielding some dramatic drop-offs throughout the property. There are no fences that can prevent children from wandering around the boulders. As a result, Amateras adheres to a policy that does not allow for children under the age of 12.
Our housekeeper, Thelma, has been with us since we built the house. She is always looking to earn some extra money, and I am sure would be happy to look after your children should you want some adult time. Simply ask her when you see her.
There is as much or as little activity as one would like on Virgin Gorda: snorkeling, sailing, deep sea fishing, scuba diving, tennis, hiking, day trips to other island — or simply reading a book by the pool or on a secluded beach. The Island offers several excellent restaurants including those at the five-star resorts. Spa services can be booked at any one of the hotels including the awarding winning Little Dix Bay. The House Manager will be happy to assist you in making arrangements for any activity you have in mind.
When booking Amateras, we give you the option of booking directly through VRBO, or booking directly with us. If you book directly, we will offer a 5% discount. Our availability calendar can be viewed on the VRBO site.
