Village Cay Marina has played host to every variety of sailor and boat over the last 30 years, from the smallest sail boat to huge luxury motor yachts. Admittedly visitors to BVI waters have changed over time. In days past it used to be Sir Francis Drake, Blackbeard and Captain Kidd whereas now it’s the white chinoed yachting crowd and pina colada sipping business people that come to Tortola’s busiest marina and hotel.
Village Cay was built in 1974 to accommodate the burgeoning sailing industry in the British Virgin Islands. Constructed primarily as a marine facility, Village Cay has grown and expanded over the years to become a broad based service establishment that has been developed and renovated to appeal to the discriminating tastes of a more sophisticated guest, while retaining a casual Caribbean ambiance.
An added boon to the VCM business was the construction of the government administration building, which is literally a stone’s throw away and the focal point of the driving financial services industry. Invariably business people choose VCM because of its convenience and often partake in a little vacation while tending to business affairs. While business guests are a welcome and growing sector of the hotel’s revenues, it is the yachts that dominate the view from the open-air bar and restaurant and the spacious rooms that overlook the marina
Apartment is defined as, a set of rooms which have all the facilities like a house. The major types of apartment are studio apartment, bedroom apartment, duplex, lofts, garden apartment. If I was asked where I would I prefer to live in a traditional house or in a modern apartment building, I think, I would hesitate to answer. This question, from my point of view, is a controversial one. In the following paragraphs I will analyze both these options and present my view.

It’s everyone’s dream to have a comfortable place to live. As the majority of people say, I want to get an attractive house someday, but unluckily it is not so easy to get because it is very costly. But there are several differences between owning a house and renting an apartment. The first difference is the noise. If you are renting an apartment and you are a noisy person, it is very painful for the rest of the people who live with you. For example if you are always playing melodic instruments, listening to loud music and cleaning the house with noisy machines you are really troubling the other people and I’m sure that you wouldn’t want to be in their place. But also, in a lot of cases the noise depends on if the owner permits it or not. In contrast, owning a house is more comfortable if you are a noisy person because you are the owner and responsible for all the things of your house and you don’t have to care of disturbing someone. For example, if you are the owner of the house you are free to even have a noisy party or whatever you want because it is your house. The second and most important difference for me is about the policy. When you live in an apartment, you have to comply with the owner’s policy. For example, you have to ask for him or her if you are free to have visitors, pets, parties, etc. On the other hand, when you rent an apartment, you are not as free as you are when you are the owner of a house to do whatever you want. In contrast, owning a house permits you to be free without caring that someone is dissatisfied with your ideas and decisions about your house. In this case you can paint your house, buy a big tape recorder or do all the things that you want. In conclusion, I prefer owning a house that is better than renting an apartment because I can be free to do whatever I want, without policy and it gives me more sovereignty and relieve.

From the one side, living in a modern apartment building brings many paybacks. First of all, it is cheaper than living in a traditional house and paying different kinds of fees I am not familiar with. For instance, my buddy, who recently bought a new house for his family, told me that it is much easier to live in an apartment and I tend to believe him when I see his bills. So, living in an apartment will definitely help me to save some money. Second of all, since I live alone, I do not need a big house with many rooms. I just need a bedroom and a living room where I can take my guests and have my work place. Another important benefit of living in an apartment is that I will not have to buy much weighty furniture in order to furnish all rooms.
