Little Thatch Island (revised)

Okay, folks, I goofed royally. I pulled up the wrong gizmo and what I wrote yesterday is WRONG!

The elegant resort is alive and kicking. Here is what I should have clicked on: Little Thatch Island , BVI (your own private island). That last part is what I missed.

Take a look at it and you will see that it’s designed for millionaires only! But if you have the bucks, by all means go for it! It should be quite a trip as Keith Richards would say.

I wanted to insert a picture of Keith, but Time magazine didn’t respond to my request for permission to use it. So get the November 8 issue.  There you will find two pictures of Keith Richards, one with Mick Jagger.


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.
