Amazing stay and even more amazing experience with owner

  • 5 of 5

I will first start this by saying I very rarely do reviews. Something has to really be great for me to take the time and this was one of those rare situations. We wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and work life and had been to Jost Van Dyke by boat in the past so it sounded fun to go there with our family. We happened upon Almost Heaven Villa on VRBO last minute and when I reached out to the owner (Brian) he immediately got back with me and had a last minute cancellation. We booked it asap! This villa and this island is awesome! The villa has three totally separate sections so three couples could easily stay there. It has a great pool overlooking Great Harbour and I was amazed each day when we hung out at the pool and saw such a great piece of the world. I cannot even begin to say how Brian (owner) made this such a great experience. You can tell how much he loves this island and is excited to share it with his guests. He was such a responsive communicator. I would email him a question and he would respond within an hour (usually faster). Brian sent me a list of all of the places and restuarants to visit, transportation suggestions, excursion suggestions, etc. We basically did everything he suggested and absolutely loved it! He has a house manager (Merus) who works at Soggy Dollar and is so nice and helpful as well. Because of Merus, we had went to Soggy many times for the beach and a couple times for dinner. I cannot say enough about this place. We took our 17 year old daughter and her friend and had an incredible time. It was an incredible trip and we will definitely be back!

Warning: if you want a place that's is crowded and commercialized this is not your place!!

  • 5 of 5

We discovered JVD, several years ago and hate to share with anyone who don't know about it.

If your looking for an Island that is commercialized with crowded beaches, well this is not your place.

Almost Heaven Villa is situated with breathtaking views day or night, the owner is consistently making improvements and has all the comforts of home. ( If that is what Interest you) . We took our youngest (10yrs old) for a week and she absolutely loved, using the pool, snorkeling, hiking etc. or like I told the wife (haha) just leave the kids at home and use it has a couples getaway.

Be warned: You will be required to slow your life down and enjoy the small things. Also don't forget to have a bushwacker or painkiller while your at it...

Friends Get-A-Way Trip

  • 5 of 5

Four of us recently rented this villa in Jost. The view is amazing - seriously unbelievable! The house is conveniently located between White Bay and Great Bay which was great. We rented a jeep but also would walk down some mornings just for fun and exercise. The beds are comfortable and the pool is lovely. There are baby goats and chickens that wander onto the property to visit - we loved this! We recommend taking a trip the bubbling pool and hiking around that side of the island. It's a hidden gem. Lots of places to eat in both bays. Soggy Dollar does have the best Pain Killers but we really enjoyed meeting staff and hanging out at Foxy's and One Love too. Foxy's son owns One Love and if you are lucky he will show you some amazing magic tricks while your at the bar. We loved taking the path over to Ivan's Stress Free too. You can't go wrong on this island super friendly people and fun times.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 people in our party and stayed several nights at Almost Heaven Villas! We were blown away when we checked in and saw how beautiful and spacious the villa was. Plenty of room for everyone and the view off the patio was amazing. It was relaxing and peaceful and we enjoyed watching the boats below while cooling off in the pool. A few times we walked to Foxy's and Soggy Dollar Bar - both if which are not too far of a walk. A little hilly, but a short walk and beautiful scenery. There's a small grocery store at the bottom of the road and we picked up a few groceries and cooked out on the grill. Grocery store prices are a little high, but you're in the islands so that is expected. But we found everything we needed and ate well! I mentioned to Brian, the owner, we felt like Kinds & Queens when we checked in to the Villa. Would definitely stay again and recommend Almost Heaven Villa to anyone looking to feel like royalty!

Can't wait to go back! Loved the location and views!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a 10 day stay at Almost Heaven Villa and did not want to leave! Our 3 year old (and us) LOVED to pool. It's how we started and ended pretty much every day. We got into a perfect routine of pool time at wakeup, then walked to either Great Harbour for breakfast (Christine's Bakery or Ali Baba's) or walked straight to the beach (Ivan's and Soggy Dollar). We spend most of our time on the Ivan's side - with the kiddo in tow, this side is less busy and the water is calmer. Plus the Banana Whackers at Ivan's are a must-have! In the afternoon, we'd walk across White Bay's rocky path and hang out on that side of the beach (from Soggy Dollar down to One Love) before catching a taxi back up to the villa. It's walkable from the far end of the beach, but we were not that ambitious, especially with a 3 year old after a long day of sun and swimming. Plus, for 4 of us, it was only $10-$15 for the trip and you were back there in minutes. One at the villa, we'd rinse off the sand in the outdoor shower then hop in the pool while figuring out dinner plans. We walked down to Great Harbour most nights and usually ended up at Foxy's. One day mid-trip, we didn't even leave the villa the entire day - the pool was perfect and rotating between the deck and the main room gave us a nice little break from the sun. It was great just relaxing and watching the boats coming in and out of Great Harbour and listening to the music coming from Foxy's (which you can only hear at night when you're outside on the deck - you can't hear it when you're inside or in your room).

There's a refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, toaster over, grill, all the pots and pans you'd need - we cooked and grilled a few times and had everything we needed. Plus, coffee every morning was a must-have since our little toddler alarm clock was with us.

It's a very open layout with tons of space in the main room. Our kiddo enjoyed all the dancing room and did many puzzles on the floor. There were 4 of us total and it felt incredibly spacious. We can definitely see how it would be perfect for 3 couples because there is definitely lots of room to spare.

The temperature in the villa was great. The villa's hillside location seems to keep it fairly breezy. If the main area warms up, just open the glass deck doors and use the screen doors to get some air circulating. We had the glass doors open and used just the screen doors pretty much every day. The bedroom suites have air conditioning which was
