Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the windy hill house in off-season with friends of mine and it was absolutely fantastic. You feel the true island vibe and the beauty of the island. We loved seeing the yellow finches every morning coming to drink their sugar water.The home is decorated West Indies and we loved it.The kitchen is open and modern which is in the main living area. The bathrooms are all in tiled and the showers are all true walk-ins. The house has a spectacular view of Tortola, and the Sir Francis Drake channel. All of the nearby beaches are 3-5 min away, couldn't be in a better location. We cooked a lot , but if you want to go out there are great restaurants 5 mins down the road in Spanish town and up by the Coppermine. Joleen was great! She is very accommodating to all of our needs and gave us the lay of the island.

We will be back again next year. Great trip!!!!!!

Perfect stay on Virgin Gorda

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning a trip to Virgin Gorda, this house is perfect. The pictures are stunning but don't even do the beautify this property justice! The house features a spacious open floor plan, with a large wraparound deck and open double doors on three sides. The two bedrooms are ideal for two couples or a small family. Each room has it's own bathroom featuring large showers. We cooked and grilled here quite a bit, the grocery store is close by and the kitchen has everything you need. The location is also close to the Baths and other beautiful beaches. Joleen was an excellent host and gave great recommendations for where to explore and snorkel. The car you have the option to rent includes a local sticker, so you can pretty much park at any beach and not have to worry. Thank you so much Joleen!!!

Escape to Windy Hill!

  • 5 of 5

Joleen's wonderful house is the perfect home base from which to explore Virgin Gorda! The location is so convenient: literally minutes to drive to the Baths, and several other beaches that are just as good and much more private, with great snorkeling (and Joleen even had plenty of snorkels for our family of 5 to use!). Joleen and her wonderful grandson have the best advice on where to go and what to see...from beaches to entertainment to dining. We just couldn't believe how convenient some of the fantastic beaches and restaurants are. We rented Joleen's car, which is much more convenient that going with an agency, and we drove all over the island. Even Leverick Bay is an easy drive, but if you don't know the island be sure to drive it during the day first...or take a taxi, which is cheap and easy. The house itself is incredibly comfortable: all the basic conveniences you need, and the market is literally a 2 minute drive or a 5 minute walk for provisions. This is true outdoor living at its finest: great views, many outdoor sitting areas (all very comfortable), and plenty of room for 5 of us to spread out.

In addition to Joleen and Kyle being such great, friendly & knowledgeable hosts, the best thing about renting from Joleen is that everyone on Virgin Gorda knows her! Our ferry from St. Thomas arrived very late, yet she had someone waiting to pick us up and it seemed that every taxi driver at the dock knew her!

Virgin Gorda is for those who desire a truly relaxing escape from it all, with some of the best scenery and snorkeling on earth. If you are the "resort set," this isn't for're either looking to escape to Virgin Gorda, or you're looking for St. Thomas...opposite ends of the spectrum.

We couldn't have chosen a better spot, and we would definitely rent Nature's Secret Oceanview Getaway again.

I shouldn't say this....

  • 5 of 5

I shouldn't be writing this right now... Why you ask? Because I don't want the secret to get out! This house is amazing. Just perfectly set up. My husband and 2 children have visited Virgin Gorda by boat to see the baths only. So, when we had a few extra days for a new adventure, we headed over by ferry. Joleen picked us up at the ferry dock and brought us to the house. She even had a car for us to rent directly from her!

Since there is no crime on the island, you keep the house entirely open. All of the doors (except the bedrooms) are kept wide open all day and all night. There are bugs. Mosquitos. Lots of them. Wear bug spray. Just part of it. But, we were out all day long, at the beaches, exploring the island. So big deal. The bedrooms have nice cool AC units in them so sleeping is not a problem. It's perfect.

We will be back. You couldn't keep us away!

Wonderful stay and World Class Hostess!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this property from May 10 through May 17 of 2014 and we had a wonderful experience! Joleen is a world class hostess and knows everything about the island! Our vacation week was a memorable one thanks to her recommendations. We also felt in love with the house – perfectly located and beautifully decorated! This is the best experience we had with vacation rentals and we will certainly recommend her house to friends (and hopefully we will have a chance to return). Thank you Joleen!

Fantastic Villa with spectacular views and wonderful helpful owner!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 8 incredible nights at this villa for our 10th anniversary. We absolutely loved the open villa concept with amazing views from multiple outdoor patio areas as well as the swimming pool. Joleen (the owner) was so friendly and had such great advice on where to go eat, snorkle, beaches, daytrips, boat trips,etc..It was so nice to talk to her each day with new ideas and she really wanted to make sure we were having a good time and enjoying our vacation in Virgin Gorda. It's very easy to drive to anyplace on the island within a half hr, but it was especially convenient to be just 5 minutes from The Baths, Devils Bay, Spring Bay, Lil Trunk and Valley Trunk beaches, 5 minutes to grocery stores, numerous restaurants, and the marina.

Fav beaches: Lil Trunk, Valley Trunk(beautiful), Spring Bay, Devils Bay. Savannah and Mahoe beaches were bigger w/ better snorkeling than those other beaches but not as scenic as the close by beaches with the amazing rocks. All the beaches except The Baths were virtually empty. The Baths is worth the visit early in morning before crowds arrive and to do the caves between it and Devils Bay. The view and rocks are just the same next door at Spring Bay and Lil Trunk beaches so no need to stay at the crowded and small Baths beach for the day when next door is empty..

Fav daytrip: We took a day boat trip with Double D (Dave) that stopped at 4 diff places to snorkle with lunch and just a great relaxing day on the water with a really cool dude Dave that has all kinds of interesting local knowledge of the area. Highly recommend trip with Dave! Also take the ferry to Anegada. Famous for it's lobster and better snorkeling with miles of empty beaches. Fun day trip! A trip to Jost Van Dyke is also fun. Drive over to Leverick Bay for lunch or a cocktail at Little Dix's Resort.

Fav restaurants: The Rock (and also Georgios Treetop restaurant at same place), Hog Heaven for lunch(Great view!). Rendezvous Bar on Sun evening with Steel Drum band that was very good. The Top of the Baths for b-fst or lunch..excellent views..Happy hour at Coco Maya on the beach watching sunset! Nice atmosphere. Better than overpiced avg dinner there.

Virgin Gorda is small, quiet, w/ beautiful empty beaches + wonderful local people. We liked it much better than St. John. A lot of that was thanks to Joleen (and her nice property). We had a special time and will definitely go back and stay at Joleens. Thanks so much!
