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.

This was our first trip to the BVI. Between this stunning property, the amazingly kind nature of the BVI community, and Doug’s thoughtful professionalism in providing every detail, the 2-week stay marks a memorable new “high point” in our travels.
Traveling to the island: all needed details were meticulously laid out in an email before our arrival. Also there is a folder inside the house, full of neatly handwritten details and Tortola dining suggestions. On day 1 we were running later than anticipated, but Jerry’s rental (book ahead) had car waiting when we came off the Road Town Ferry, and Doug & Donna graciously waited at the villa to welcome us, having brought the food & beverage groceries we pre-ordered, and gave us a tour of the property. Their affability made us feel at home right away, and patiently answered our touristy questions via email/text throughout the stay.
The property: two big bedrooms with their own deck on opposite sides of the house. Plenty of living room and kitchen space. And the overlook views are as transcendent as described in other reviews and even more In person. If you don’t feel like you have ascended into some kind of home in the sky on the drive up (the incline something you’ll get used to after one or two times), you will feel it during your first sunset or night swim as the clouds roll past, seemingly within arm’s reach.
Tortola: Won’t recommend must-see places to go, of which their are plenty, and Doug’s team of welcomers will offer suggestions, but will say we were overwhelmed with the overall kindness and feeling of community throughout the island.
We hope to come back to this incredible villa someday, and highly recommend for all types of travelers & group sizes. Thanks to Doug for welcoming us, and for making our stay so memorable.
Our stay at High Point Villa
This was our second stay so we knew how everything worked. All went smoothly, we linked up with the car rental people and the property manager and had a great stay. Villa is clean & comfortable with the fabulous view. Plenty of kitchen accessories, beach towels and other stuff to make the stay as easy as possible.
High Point heaven
This was our 3rd visit to this lovely home. Same gorgeous views of the channel and numerous islands from Jost Van Dyke all the way around to Norman and Peter. Our favorite pastime is relaxing by the pool or just sitting on the deck watching the boats go by. High Point is so lovely we didn't want to leave. The house is meticulously clean and well maintained. The owners and property managers are easy to work with. Everything you need is right here. Highly recommend this place. Looking forward to our next visit.
Our favorite vacation spot!
This is the second time we have stayed at High Point Villa and it is truly exceptional! You are really on top of the world looking out over the Sir Francis Drake channel. The owners and the property managers make sure every detail is taken care of and they make you feel so welcome. We recommend this property without hesitation! And we can’t wait to return.
Best View on Tortola!
If you are looking for an awe inspiring view in supreme comfort and privacy, this is your spot. We loved returning from a day at the beach or exploring other islands to this perfect retreat and spectacular sunsets. The weather was perfect with breezes most of the time we were there. It’s easy to catch New Horizons Ferry from West End to Jost Van Dyke for a day at White Beach. Lobster rolls at Soggy Dollar were the best we’ve had and a visit to Foxy’s never disappoints. Aristocat day sails leaves from Nanny Cay and captains and crews are great at finding perfect snorkeling and turtle watching. We had great lunches at Sebastian’s and Island Fusion. Smugglers Cove is a short drive and Nigel’s Beach Bar is always fun (try the hot dogs - they are a special treat). Make sure you are comfortable with a steep drive (4 wheel drive is a must), but so worth it! We hope to be back next year.
