Tortola Villa Rental Photos and Description
Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4) Pool, Hot Tub, Total Privacy, Gazebo
High Point Villa is located at the top of a short, private gated road--700 feet up and overlooking the Sir Francis Drake Channel, St. John, and at least a dozen (literally!) other islands!
There are 2 large bedroom suites located at opposite ends of the home, each connected to the main living area by short breezeways. Each bedroom suite has its own full bath along with private outdoor showers so you can enjoy the amazing views while soaping-up! Both bedroom suites have vaulted ceilings and multiple large, screened sliding glass doors that let the ocean breezes flow through, as well as four-post king size beds complete with goose-down mattress covers for unrivaled comfort. Ceiling fans above each bed.
The well appointed kitchen has lots of counter space and is fully equipped with everything needed to prepare gourmet meals. (We're serious--the kitchen has EVERYTHING you would expect to find in a regular family kitchen--other than a dishwasher, sorry.) Those gourmet meals can be enjoyed at either the indoor or outdoor dining tables--both have amazing views. Your designated chef need not despair of cooking duty--he or she can enjoy the company of companions AND views to the south of sailboats in the Channel and St. John because the kitchen is open to and overlooks the main living and dining area.
The main living and dining area is beautifully vaulted and open on three sides: To the east side is the pool, hot tub, large sunny pool deck, and views to Peter, Cooper, and Norman islands; to the south is the large deck with multiple sitting and dining areas and views of the Channel and St. John; to the west is the outdoor bar, a covered sitting area, and views of the West End of Tortola, Soper's Hole Harbor, Jost Van Dyke (home of the Soggy Dollar beach bar) and St. Thomas. The views from 'inside' are so big and so spectacular, and the 'inside' living spaces are so airy, breezy, and open to the outside living spaces that common notions of 'indoor' and 'outdoor' blend together in perfect harmony.
The pool is always refreshing! From in the pool or on the spacious pool deck your foreground view is of beautiful island landscaping flowing seamlessly into huge views of the British and US Virgin islands--spanning from east to west. The pool deck has both sunny and shaded sitting/relaxing areas. The heated hot tub has a stone waterfall that flows into the pool for subtle and soothing sounds while you soak.
Other amenities include: a Bose iPod docking station so you can dance to your favorite tunes; hilltop stone gazebo complete with hammock--yes, you will feel like the king of this island paradise as you swing in the hammock while sipping an icy beverage!; complete linens, beach towels, beach chairs, cooler, etc... (the house is amazing but you really should visit the many beautiful beaches on Tortola); seamless solar power and solar hot water--we are eco-minded; parking area for cars immediately adjacent to front entrance; library of books-many tastes;
You will need to rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle. If you use Jerry's Car rental ( 284-495-4111 ) . Jerry will pick you up and drop you off at the West End ferry or airport.

Why Doug Jones chose Tortola
We spent many years on sailing vacations traveling in the islands. Then we started mixing our time half sailing and half in vacation rentals. When our favorite vacation rental was no longer available we started looking for a place where we could enjoy longer winter stays. It took only one sunset at High Point Villa to end our search.
What makes this villa unique
One of the best things about High Point Villa is just that. We are at the top of the hill and enjoy total privacy (except on Thursdays, when the gardener, housekeeper and pool people are here). No cars and trucks driving on nearby roads, just the sounds of the breezes and the birds. We enjoy watching the variety of boats moving up and down the Sir Francis Drake Channel.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Mr. and
we stayed at your Tortola villa
in April/May and would like to take the opportunity to thank you for
stay at such a beautiful place and for making our stay a very pleasant
come to Tortola for 18 years now from Germany and over the last years I always looked
the villa and asked myself if it was for rent. Finally I found it and it fulfills all expectations. The view is
the best on the island and you decorated it lovely. If I had a house
it would look much the same. Also it is very unusual that the owners
on arrival and welcome you at their place. That was very kind of
will come back and stay at High Point again, although it seem
it is so frequently booked. But we do understand why that is
