Overview

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.

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 40 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, 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

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

probably

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

you.

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

so.

Thank you

again.

Kind

regards,
Apr 2014

Breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the High Point Villa, the home has everything you need and a wonderful outdoor space! The home is exactly like the pictures and the driveway is not for the faint of heart. Jerry's Car Rental is your best friend, he knows exactly what you need. We grilled out, we laid by the pool and we just got an opportunity to rest and relax. The BVI's are a special place and this location is a perfect spot to see it all. Its great during the day and even more fun at night. If you want to hideaway and relax this is your spot! Thanks Doug!

Romantic hideaway with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

A spectacular villa set atop all others with mesmerizing views of the surrounding islands. Unbelievable sunsets. Solitude at it's best with open concept home. Wonderful and breezy. Enjoyed the villa so much we only left once for food, wine and discovery drive. A great way to wind down from our 12 day sailing trip. Thanks for the great experience Doug. It will be hard to match your lovely place. Visitors need a 6 cl 4WD vehicle for the exciting drive up and down! Thanks for the fun! Kathy and Heinz Reese, Canada.

Photos will never do this place justice!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our two girls (ages 9 and 15), recently had a wonderful stay at High Point Villa. Prior to the visit I saw photos online of the villa and felt prepared for the experience but, boy, was I wrong! Photos will never do this place justice. High Point Villa is beautiful and the view is stunning! You truly have to be there to experience it's full glory. On our first morning, we woke up to a beautiful rainbow over Soper's Hole! It was lovely, like one of those photos you only see in a magazine. The villa itself is so neat and cozy. It's very well kept and uniquely decorated! Our two girls loved going around looking for the different lizard and frog statues/sculptures thoughtfully placed throughout the home by Doug and Linda. The villa also has everything! From sunblock to bug spray, beach chairs/hats/bags, DVDs, and grocery bags---Doug and Linda have thought of it all! The owner Doug is also incredibly helpful and caring. On our first day there he called to make sure our travels went smoothly. He recommended the ferry we took and getting a 4-wheel drive vehicle through Jerry's, which was very necessary to get up the hill to the villa, but made our trip experience so much better because we had the convenience of going where ever we needed to on the island. Doug also recommended that we check out Aristocat Charters and because of that my husband and oldest girl got to experience snorkeling in the Caribbean with wild dolphins! In the past, my family and I have always stayed at hotels and resorts during our vacation but High Point Villa has definitely made us rethink how we travel. Thank you, Doug & Linda!

BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5

This home is one of the most exceptional places we have stayed. We have stayed in a few places around Florida - this is a beautiful home, great views, super pool and spa. We loved everything about the British Virgin Islands. Would come back any time. Owner and greeter easy to work with. Thanks for a great vacation and rest.

Christmas week at Highpoint Villa on Tortola

  • 5 of 5

Two couples shared Highpoint during Christmas week 2015. The four of us are experienced international travelers and generally book far better than average lodgings. Highpoint exceeded our expectations. The information provided in the VRBO listing was accurate and useful. The property owner was extremely helpful in answering questions fully, promptly and honestly before we decided to book. Throughout our trip planning and during our stay, the owner gave us information on the local scene, gave excellent advice on vehicle rental and made sure house staff welcomed us with all the information we needed to enjoy our vacation. When the cable TV service went down, the owner guided us through the service restoration process and followed up to make sure we were satisfied. His suggestions allowed us to arrange car rental people to meet our plane upon arrival, secure a good 4-wheel drive vehicle and return us to the airport for departure. We enjoyed the property so much that we did not leave the house 3 of our 7 days. The views from this hilltop home are spectacular and mesmerizing. The views can even be enjoyed from the swimming pool and hot tub. A day trip to St. Thomas for shopping and lunch was easy and fun. The floor plan allowed each couple complete privacy. The large kitchen was well supplied with cooking equipment. High quality glassware, plates and flatware made cocktail time and meals enjoyable. The large and comfortable living room was perfect for time shared with our friends, for meals, for reading and for entertainment. I highly recommend Highpoint as a vacation lodging and hope to return in the future.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the High Point Villa and can say it was heavenly! Located perfectly at the west end of Tortola close to 3 unbelievable beaches. Situated at the top of the "mountain" at over 700 feet above the water with spectacular views one can only imagine. The house itself is perfect in every way, from the pool, hot tub, deck and open floor plan that lends itself to "island living".

We cannot describe the peace and beauty experienced during our stay, if your even remotely thinking about this property consider your search over----a MUST stay!
