Little Thatch island, BVI

The tourist operation on Little Thatch has changed once again…this time dramatically. And apparently in a blink of the eye. I don’t know the details, but I have learned that the “swelll ellegant” operation offered millionaires has vanished. By that I mean all the buildings but one are gone !

I have emailed Jerry O’Connell, the owner of Sandcastle and the Soggy Dollar Bar, for any information he might have regarding this. As soon as I hear what happened, I’ll let you know.

Meanwhile, this will change some of the things I wrote in the Epilogue of my book. A future edition of my book will have be edited to show it like it is, once again!

Stay tuned until I hear from Jerry. Thank you!


George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
