MOST POPULAR HOUSE ON ST. THOMAS FOR 3 YEARS IN A ROW!

Northside House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

7/7/14 Update: 2014 SOLD OUT! And, sold out until April 11, 2015. Please inquire about April 11, 2015 through 2016!

BREATHTAKING ISLAND AND OCEAN VIEWS FROM EVERY ROOM!

Imagine a tropical villa with sunrise and sunset views over a turquoise ocean… that you see from every room in the house! Even long-time islanders are astonished by the beauty of the 220-degree view from our home, High Blue Heaven!

Why stay at a hotel or condo development where you’ll share a crowded pool? At High Blue Heaven, you’ll enjoy the best location on St. Thomas on the breezy, green North Side close to beautiful beaches, great golf, delightful restaurants and the ferry to St. John (Virgin Islands National Park)… but quiet, private and high above the ocean so you can enjoy the view without the sand flies.

As you enter High Blue Heaven, your eyes will be drawn out over the edge of the Infinity pool on the deck to Magen’s Bay, Hans Lollik Island and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. The main floor includes one of two master bedroom suites with full bathroom, the Great Room with living room area (queen sleeper sofa), dining area, kitchen, laundry room and a powder room. Up the mahogany staircase, a second master bedroom features a four-poster bed, full bathroom, walk-in closet and a second deck.

Our house is decorated in a casually comfortable Caribbean style with tile floors throughout and bright colors flooded with light: it’s a place where you can feel at home and relax into island living. From the spacious deck, enjoy a meal…or a swim in the Infinity pool while watching the lights flicker on Jost Van Dyke. The kitchen is equipped with everything you’ll need to craft a romantic dinner. Or sample half a dozen terrific restaurants within minutes of the house.

You’ll enjoy the prevailing trade winds that keep High Blue Heaven cool and comfortable. Our house is West Indian style, meaning that every room has a ceiling fan. Each bedroom also offers its own self-controlled air conditioning system, as well as television, DVD player, and outdoor deck or balcony with gorgeous ocean views. Wi-Fi is free throughout the house.

Ideally and centrally situated on the breezy north side of the island, High Blue Heaven is seven minutes from:

• Swimming and water sports at Magens Bay, one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world (National Geographic); and

• Golf at Mahogany Run Golf Course with its famous Devil's Triangle course.

Coral World Marine Park and Charlotte Amalie with duty-free shopping are just ten minutes from us, as are Red Hook (catch the ferry to St. John) and East End restaurants.

We want to make your visit an unforgettable experience. We have loved and enjoyed the U.S. Virgin Islands for more than thirty years and have many recommendations to share, from the best places to swim and snorkel to the restaurants that the guidebooks don’t tell you about. We chose our house because of its breeze-friendly design, fabulous view and Caribbean charm, and we want to share that with you.

Because we know that you’ve come to relax, our property manager, Robin, will meet you at the airport, escort you to the car rental service and help you get your rental car. Then, she will ensure that you arrive at our house and are fully briefed on everything you need to know. If you tell us in advance, we will also stock the house with whatever groceries you would like, for a small fee.

Your house rental includes:

-Complimentary beach towels and cooler

-Complimentary snorkeling and beach gear - includes masks, fins, boogie boards, pails and shovels!

-Linens, bath and beach towels, bathroom amenities

Our home features living all on one level if you prefer (second bedroom upstairs). If you don't like climbing stairs, this is the place for you.

DEAR GUESTS: PLEASE BE AWARE -- WE NOT ONLY PROHIBIT SMOKING INSIDE THE HOUSE - WE ALSO PROHIBIT IT ON THE DECKS OUTSIDE THAT FACE THE VIEW. SMOKING IS PERMITTED ONLY ON A CORNER OF OUR DRIVEWAY, WITH NO VIEW. PLEASE CONSIDER RENTING ELSEWHERE IF YOU OR MEMBERS OF YOUR GROUP SMOKE.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We were here to support the bride and groom and so lucky to have stayed in this beautiful home. What an amazing view! We started off each morning looking at the beautiful view and ended each night watching the waves roll by. It was a wonderful experience!

The Coons live in Portland, Oregon and travel to High Blue Heaven whenever they can get away! Our history with St Thomas dates back to 1978 when she moved there from Philadelphia and soon found herself helping to establish the first environmental protection programs for the U.S. Virgin Islands. Her love for the islands, the sparkling turquoise waters, snorkeling and scuba and the vibrant West Indian culture never lessened. This year, we decided it was time to return, at least part time. So we searched for just the right home and found the yellow house with the red roof and the blue shutters, located on our favorite part of St Thomas, destined to become High Blue Heaven!

Cheryl Coon purchased this house in 2010

We chose our house because of its breeze-friendly design and location, fabulous views and Caribbean charm.

You came for the view and the ocean...and at High Blue Heaven, you'll never stop gazing at it. But that's not all. High Blue Heaven offers one-third acre of flowering tropical plants and fruit trees: papaya, mango, avocado, and coconut grow on the grounds. Enjoy bird-watching from the decks, including hummingbirds, banana-quits, green parakeets, and red-tailed hawks. You may even have a visit from the resident iguanas!

MORE THAN WE DREAMED IT WOULD BE!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at High Blue Heaven was to celebrate our 20 year wedding anniversary. Due to the cost of flights, we decided to fly in on Thursday and spend two nights on St. John. This worked perfectly. After busy days of snorkeling and eating out, we were ready for the sanctuary of High Blue Heaven. Robin was so helpful in setting up a flexible meeting place since we were arriving by car ferry. She also gave us wonderful grocery shopping suggestions.

Our 14 year old son LOVED having the "penthouse" suite to himself. The house is perfect! We ended up spending most of our time on the deck by the pool. Such fun afternoons my family had splashing in the water and taking naps on the comfy outdoor furniture. We shopped at Cost U Less and ate almost every meal at the house - even packed picnic lunches for our fun mornings at Magen's Bay. We enjoyed our Water Island Day - we rented a golf cart from Kelliy's Kart and explored the beautiful island. Of course snorkeling with a sea turtle was the highlight of that day.

We are "cruisers" and "resort people" so this was our first time renting a home. We absolutley were NOT disappointed. The house was exactly as pictured and had everything we needed. Our favorite part - the amazing view! It never got old - we were in awe every morning when we opened the curtains. The house provided peace and relaxation to a family that needed it. Thank you for sharing with us! We hope to be able to visit your High Blue Heaven again in the near future.

THE PARKS FROM VA

We had a glorious time for the week at High Blue Heaven. From the moment we arrived and were escorted to the villa by Robin we were impressed. The infinity pool was so relaxing in the evenings and the villa contained everything to make us feel right at home. The view is perfection! A few highlights for us were our trip to Water Islands Honeymoon Beach and Honeymoon Cafe (best fish tacos ever), The Baths tour which included several stops (The Breakaway Charter crew was amazing) and visiting Cinnamon Bay and Trunk Beach in St John. We definitely plan to come back.

High Blue Heaven is just that...a beautiful environment to become refreshed in every way. Every day was as rich as the one before. The care and attention by the manager of the villa enabled us to be free of all care and just enjoy the time. Returning is on all of our agendas! I wouldn't change a thing. Even two rainy days didn't matter.

PERFECT, ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for a wonderful week at your house! This was our first visit to a Caribbean island and it was as awesome as we thought it would be. The views from the house are amazing - you feel like a movie star in a private villa. We had breakfast and dinner at the house each day - great facilities for cooking. We went out for lunch and activities each day. Nates custom charters for fishing, snorkling and island hopping was great. Lunch for pizza a the Fat Turtle and Fish at Fish Tails in Red Hook were highlights. Robin was very helpful for anything we needed. Would recommend this place for anyone looking for a fantastic week!

TRULY HEAVENLY

  • 5 of 5
Wow! What an amazing find this home was. Thank you so much for sharing your little slice of heaven with us. We appreciated all of Robin's great info upon our arrival and found the Guest Guide binder to be very useful. We found the best snorkeling at Trunk Bay on St. John but our favorite beach overall was Magen's Bay for paddleboarding and the many other amenities. We also enjoyed great drinks and snacks at Virgin Fire at Mongoose Junction on St. John. Old Stone Farmhouse was a fun, delicious but spendy experience. Simply Italian, Cup & Cork, Mahogany Grill (all close to High Blue Heaven) and Fish Tails (Red Hook) were also great. Driving took some getting used to but no mishaps. We would recommend renting a 4 wheel drive vehicle as some of the roads are just that steep. At the end of our fun filled days we loved returning to High Blue Heaven for more fun (steel drum and pool), relaxation and the unbelievable views.

MT. MCKINLEY VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Cheryl and Jim for sharing your getaway home with us and keeping it affordable for all to enjoy.
Robin, the manager, was very helpful with information on island activities, shopping, and directions.
My wife and I have been coming to the Caribbean since 1989 with the last 10 years seeking out villa rentals. By far, High Blue Heaven is the Mt. McKinley of them all. It has private sky views of Hans Lollik, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, and St. Johns. Quiet neighborhood with the occasional island rooster crowing in the valley below and the honk of a truck horn warning on coming traffic that it is coming around a corner.
Information for future guests includes the following: Best restaurant, Mafolie. Best grocery store, Cost-U-Less. Best snorkeling beach, Coki beach [Trunk Bay, St. Johns]. Best walking beach, Magens beach. Vehicle rental, no particular one but choose a high profile one because of road conditions. Have Robin set the running of pool pump motor to a time you wish.
In closing, my wife and I will definitely be back here.

Thanks again, Bob and Lin
