|Minimum Stay||5 nights|
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.

Doug Jones purchased this villa in 2001
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.
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.
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
Take the most amazing sunset you can imagine, then add the coolest villa! Then, throw them both in the trash, because High Point is beyond belief! No, this isn't the owner (though, I wish I were). We've been coming to Tortola for 16 years, but this has been our best trip by far!
The kitchen is made for those who enjoy cooking, as I do, with all the bells and whistles! With a pool, a spa, and tasteful Hemmingway decor, High Point is a pleasure for the senses. And, someone has a flair for lighting! We had great fun staging the light each night as the sun set!
And, speaking of sunsets, and sunrises for that matter, you get them both, and they are spectacular! High Point is perched above all the Saints, so bring your best camera, because you'll be busy! If you value privacy, amazing views and a pleasing decor, High Point is for you!

The views at High Point Villa were mesmerizing and addictive. On many days during our stay, we found it difficult to leave the villa to visit our favorite beaches. The indoor/outdoor living design at this villa emphasized the incredible views. The villa was beautifully decorated, but also very comfortable. My husband was a fan of the convenience of the retractable doors if you needed to separate the indoor living area from the outdoors. The owners of the villa were especially welcoming, gracious, and committed to making guests have a fantastic time and feel at home. (The caretaker was also very nice.) You have everything you need at High Point Villa for a stress-free, relaxed, and incredible vacation in Tortola. We are ready to go back now!
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!
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.
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!
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.
