Questions You Should Ask Yourself When Buying in the BVI: Part Two

Villa Profile: The Mariner HouseHow important is updated technology to you? Technology has and always will be an invaluable tool to keep you connected to your friends and family, business contacts and more. Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina provides complimentary Wi-Fi, so if you’re coming from the US, you’ll want to have your US network turned off, and connected to island Wi-Fi. International Apps like Skype, Netflix, WhatsApp and GPS also make life easier—and a Go Pro camera may not be needed, but with BVI underwater and above-water views, it’s fun!

Do you want your home to be furnished or unfurnished? Buying unfurnished means you’ll need to purchase your furniture locally or ship your large household items from home — which could get costly. All of our condos and villas are fully furnished with high-end décor and top-of-the-line, stainless-steel Viking appliances, granite countertops and more.

Many buyers have interest in renting their condos or villas out when not in use. One of the perks for Scrub Island Real Estate is that owners may choose to rent their property and take advantage of Marriott’s extensive distribution and loyalty programs and our team takes care of everything on the backend — making it as seamless as possible for you.

Do you want a home or property that you must be in charge or maintaining or someone else? Some owners appreciate the peace of mind that their investment will be well maintained while they are living there and when they are away. Scrub Island is held to a five-star level of service, continuous quality and property maintenance. Our engineering and maintenance staff are on hand to take care of any issue if it were to ever arise.

Cooling off is usually not far from reach with beautiful island beaches everywhere you turn.
