Check out our new video of HIGH BLUE HEAVEN - click "Video" at the top of the page!


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. And you will enjoy your own very private pool!

As you enter High Blue Heaven, your eyes will be drawn out over the edge of the 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 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, Robin will also stock the house with whatever groceries you would like, for a small fee.

Your house rental includes:

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

-High-quality bedding and bathroom 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.

About Cheryl Coon

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

Why Cheryl Coon chose Northside

We chose our house because of its breeze-friendly design and location, fabulous views and Caribbean charm. Over the four years that we have owned and enjoyed it, we have only fallen more in love with its spectacular location.

What makes this house unique

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 glimpse our resident iguanas!

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!

I could go on and on, but simply put, we had a fantastic experience in this beautiful villa! The house and amenities are everything you need and more. And the views....breathtaking! We can't forget to mention Robin! She's a wonderful resource and such a help. She went above and beyond, and it is greatly appreciated!

Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Parks and Friends Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We had an absolutely amazing time during out 10 day stay in St. Thomas. The house was so well stocked with everything we could possibly need. The views were to "live" for! The kitchen and living room area offered us a spacious area to fellowship and even dance (since there were 6 of us). We couldn't have asked for a better house to rent. Todd, you were absolutely the best host hands down; quick to respond, providing directions when we were lost, and even addressing the one area of concern that we had during our stay. James and I really hope to come back and visit St John on our next trip and we hope to rent your condo over there so that we can visit your church as well.

This is our second time to High Blue Heaven. The place is beautiful. All the amenities of home with a beautiful view of Magen's Bay. Robin is great! She is always attentive to whatever you need and a wealth of knowledge for anything on the island. Location is perfect to anything you want to do on the island . This trip we had our family join us for a week. They fell in love with the place as well. We can't wait to come back. The pool is a great place to relax and enjoy the view of Magen's Bay. Car rental is a must if you plan on exploring the sights of St Thomas and St John. Don't be scared off by driving on the other side of the road if you are from the states, it just takes a bit of getting use to but well worth it, We love the restaurant 13 . It has a great menu with specials as well as an awesome pizza menu. The staff is so friendly and accomodating. Cost U less, Pueblo, Moe Fresh Market and Kmart are awesome for getting any supplies you need. All are well worth exploring depending on what you are looking for in store. Owners of the villa are great. They share this beautiful villa with others to enjoy and are quick to respond to any questions you may have. I highly recommend this place if you are looking to enjoy St Thomas with all the amenities of home. Looking forward to our next visit.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house two years ago and just returned this week. My husband and I were so thrilled with the house and it's location. The view was even more beautiful than the pictures if that is possible! The kitchen was well-appointed with granite countertops. The bathrooms in each bedroom were comfortable with large tiled showers. We rented a car which I feel is a must and we explored St. Thomas the whole week and spent one day snorkeling in St. John. The close proximity to Magen's Bay is perfect with little kids too (calm, comfortable beach with crystal clear water). This house and vacation was better than what we expected. Robin was a super-huge help as well and made our stay that much more comfortable! My only suggestion would be to rent from a car rental at the airport rather than off-site (we rented from Dollar and will NEVER do it again). Hertz has one on--site and I think Budget too.

Owner's Response: Hi Mary, I agree with your recommendation about the airport car rentals vs off-site. Off-site is cheaper but a much bigger hassle. So glad you had a wonderful time and that you found our home and Robin to be exactly what you had hoped for! Come back soon...

We're back! This villa is still as breath taking as it was 2 years ago when we were here last. My wife and I have been using VRBO for 20 years and this is the first time we booked a rental twice, because it's that nice. We were here for 5 weeks and rented a jeep from Amalie Jeep Rentals which is the best jeep rental company on the island. Best formal restaurant - Northside Bistro. Best value restaurant - Greengo's. Cost-u-Less is best for groceries. Only problem was with pool and between Cheryl (owner) and Robin (manager) it was rectified. Still have to give 5 stars. Thanks Jim and Cheryl for allowing us to use your home away from home. Bob and Lin

Owner's Response: Thanks for all the good recommendations! Yes, during your 5-week stay we made the switch to a new pool heater and there were some hiccups. So we were happy to refund the entire pool heating cost you had paid...which meant you wound up with a heated pool for free! Robin and I are committed to making sure that our guests have a wonderful problem-free vacation!

This house sets a high standard for other rental homes.

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from seven of the best vacation days that my wife and I have experienced. We have rented several homes on VRBO (Mexico and Caribbean) over the years but this home sets the standard for all others. When you arrive the caretaker (Robin) greats you and shows you the home. Until the time you check out everything is perfect. As I told my wife you hear about million dollar views, well this is a billion dollar view. The pictures on the listing can't express how fabulous it is, when you see it in person you will understand . The home is equipped with everything that you could possibly need. The location is close to great beaches, fine restaurants and just a few minutes to town. We would always feel safe while going out at night. We enjoyed the home so much we are making plans to return next winter. In my opinion if you are going to St. Thomas this is the place you want to call home. Thanks for a great and relaxing time.

Owner's Response: Awww, it makes me feel so good when a guest takes the time to write and tell us about their stay -- and obviously appreciates all that we've done to make our home wonderful for you and for us. Thank you! So glad you're already booking your April 2017 stay!
