High Point Villa 2 BR Suite Pool Hot Tub 4 Adults $2,800 - $5,144 Awesome Views

Bedrooms 2
Half Baths1
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, West End, 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.

About Doug Jones

Linda and Doug Jones are retired and live in Minnesota. They love spending time relaxing in the islands. Linda has a passion for landscaping and it shows. We have been married 42 years.

We love traveling and can be pursauded to share the winter season with guests. Call us and we will be glad to try and work out dates for you, especially if you can be flexible.

Doug Jones purchased this villa in 2001

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 and housekeeper are here, pool people Friday afternoon). 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

Mrs. Jones,

we stayed at your Tortola villa

in April/May and would like to take the opportunity to thank you for

letting us

stay at such a beautiful place and for making our stay a very pleasant

one. We

come to Tortola for 18 years now from Germany and over the last years I always looked

up at

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

like this

it would look much the same. Also it is very unusual that the owners

contact you

on arrival and welcome you at their place. That was very kind of


We sure

will come back and stay at High Point again, although it seem

difficult as

it is so frequently booked. But we do understand why that is


Thank you

This is our "Happy place"

  • 5 of 5

If you want to leave the "real world" behind, High Point Villa is for you! This was our third time to stay at the villa and each time, we love it more. The hardest part of being here is leaving! Doug is a very attentive owner and the house is appointed in a way that you will instantly feel at home. In all our travels, there is no place we love like High Point Villa!

1st anniversary perfect

  • 5 of 5

The detail that the owners went through to make sure our stay was perfect was far beyond anything we could have asked for. The house was amazing and the views breath taking.

It was as comfortable as being in our own home and very private.

We loved every minute of our time spent there!!

Met all expectations and then some!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed a week at High Point Villa and it was the perfect setting for the amazing time we had planned. The house is beautiful and the layout is designed to capture all of the panoramic views. The house is very well decorated but is also inviting and homey. We enjoyed the breezes every evening on the deck and through the master suite. This house is exactly what you see in pictures and the views are spectacular!

Doug was very responsive to our questions prior to arriving, and also called to make sure everything was fine on arrival. We took the ferry from St. Thomas and used Jerry's car rental on Doug's recommendation. Jerry had a car waiting for us on arrival. Let them know you're staying at High Point and they will get you the perfect car for the driveway, which really isn't as bad as it had sounded in other reviews. There is a book of places to shop and eat when you arrive. We found everything easily. We bbqd at the house 4 times. If you plan on eating in, take a trip to the Rite Way in Road Town for the best selection. The smaller stores change what they carry daily. We took the ferry to Jost one day, and we booked a charter through Island Surf and Sail one day for snorkeling and island hopping. We recommend doing both.

Overall, the house was well maintained, everyone was very helpful, from Doug to Donna, who met us for a walk through on arrival. We loved our stay and cannot recommend it more highly!

Gorgeous Views

  • 5 of 5

A great time was had by all. Doug and Linda have a beautiful property on a beautiful island. Took a flight to Anegada for a day, went on the Catamaran with Captain Pete, snorkeled all over the place. Some of the best sunsets I have ever seen from Doug and Linda's deck. Thank you for your hospitality.

Perfect Stay, Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at High Point Villa for one week in Feb 2017. There were two couples that stayed in the home and it was our first time in the BVI. I really can't put into words how much we enjoyed High Point Villa and Tortola. We flew into St. Thomas and took the ferry over early on Saturday morning. We were picked up at the ferry dock by Jerry's Car Rental. We stopped at Jerry's Car Rental, the process was quick, the price was reasonable and the car was nice. It's a short trip to High Point Villa. The home is at the top of a very steep hill but on or two trips up and down and it's no problem, especially once you see the view!

When you step into the villa it's literally breathtaking, it's built almost into the hill and you walk in and you instantly see the view, pictures do not do it justice I was amazed every day at how beautiful it was. Both bedrooms are amazing large with their own bathroom and each has a view and it's own balcony. Huge wrap around balcony, perfect pool and hot tub giving you the most amazing view. Both bathrooms have an outdoor shower, one has an indoor as well but we always used the outdoor showers! The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need and we had them do grocery shopping prior which worked really well, we cooked at least 3 dinners in and ate all breakfast and some lunches in. We went to the beach most days and used the pool and hot tub when we came home.

Doug had great suggestions of what to do and we did all/most of them and you won't go wrong, I'll list some of my favorites! #1 Aristicat boat trip, we liked it so much we did it twice, we did the Jost Van Dyke and Norman Island boat trip, much preferred Norman Island but both were great! We went to Long Bay Beach, Smugglers Cove and Cane Garden Bay Beaches. We liked Cane Garden Bay and Smugglers Cove the best, Smugglers Cove is a bit difficult to get to but well worth it! We ate at Banana Keats, The Sugar Mill, Pussers, D'Coal Pot and Fish and Lime. Banana Keats and Fish and Lime were probably our favorite but I would highly recommend them all!

There's so much I can say about how magical this trip was and High Point villa was the icing on the cake. The perfect place to stay, I would stay again and again! Pictures can't even do it justice!
