BREATHTAKING ISLAND AND OCEAN VIEWS FROM EVERY ROOM!
Imagine a tropical villa with sunrise and sunset views over a turquoise ocean… that you see from every room in the house! Even long-time islanders are astonished by the beauty of the 220-degree view from our home, High Blue Heaven!

Why stay at a hotel or condo development where you’ll share a crowded pool? At High Blue Heaven, you’ll enjoy the best location on St. Thomas on the breezy, green North Side close to beautiful beaches, great golf, delightful restaurants and the ferry to St. John (Virgin Islands National Park)… but quiet, private and high above the ocean so you can enjoy the view without the sand flies. And you will enjoy your own very private pool!

As you enter High Blue Heaven, your eyes will be drawn out over the edge of the pool on the deck to Magen’s Bay, Hans Lollik Island and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. The main floor includes one of two master bedroom suites with full bathroom, the Great Room with living room area (queen sleeper sofa), dining area, kitchen, laundry room and a powder room. Up the mahogany staircase, a second master bedroom features a four-poster bed, full bathroom, walk-in closet and a second deck.

Our house is decorated in a casually comfortable Caribbean style with tile floors throughout and bright colors flooded with light: it’s a place where you can feel at home and relax into island living. From the spacious deck, enjoy a meal…or a swim in the pool while watching the lights flicker on Jost Van Dyke. The kitchen is equipped with everything you’ll need to craft a romantic dinner. Or sample half a dozen terrific restaurants within minutes of the house.

You’ll enjoy the prevailing trade winds that keep High Blue Heaven cool and comfortable. Our house is West Indian style, meaning that every room has a ceiling fan. Each bedroom also offers its own self-controlled air conditioning system, as well as television, DVD player, and outdoor deck or balcony with gorgeous ocean views. Wi-Fi is free throughout the house.

Ideally and centrally situated on the breezy north side of the island, High Blue Heaven is seven minutes from:
• Swimming and water sports at Magens Bay, one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world (National Geographic); and
• Golf at Mahogany Run Golf Course with its famous Devil's Triangle course.
Coral World Marine Park and Charlotte Amalie with duty-free shopping are just ten minutes from us, as are Red Hook (catch the ferry to St. John) and East End restaurants.

We want to make your visit an unforgettable experience. We have loved and enjoyed the U.S. Virgin Islands for more than thirty years and have many recommendations to share, from the best places to swim and snorkel to the restaurants that the guidebooks don’t tell you about. We chose our house because of its breeze-friendly design, fabulous view and Caribbean charm, and we want to share that with you.

Because we know that you’ve come to relax, our property manager, Robin, will meet you at the airport, escort you to the car rental service and help you get your rental car. Then, she will ensure that you arrive at our house and are fully briefed on everything you need to know. If you tell us in advance, Robin will also stock the house with whatever groceries you would like, for a small fee.

Your house rental includes:
-Complimentary beach towels and cooler, beach bags, snorkeling and beach gear - includes masks, fins, boogie boards, pails and shovels!
-High-quality bedding and bathroom towels, bathroom amenities

Our home features living all on one level if you prefer (second bedroom upstairs). If you don't like climbing stairs, this is the place for you.

DEAR GUESTS: PLEASE BE AWARE -- WE NOT ONLY PROHIBIT SMOKING INSIDE THE HOUSE - WE ALSO PROHIBIT IT ON THE DECKS OUTSIDE THAT FACE THE VIEW. SMOKING IS PERMITTED ONLY ON A CORNER OF OUR DRIVEWAY, WITH NO VIEW. PLEASE CONSIDER RENTING ELSEWHERE IF YOU OR MEMBERS OF YOUR GROUP SMOKE.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: The Coons live in Portland, Oregon and travel to High Blue Heaven whenever they can get away! Our history with St Thomas dates back to 1978 when she moved there from Philadelphia and soon found herself helping to establish the first environmental protection programs for the U.S. Virgin Islands. Her love for the islands, the sparkling turquoise waters, snorkeling and scuba and the vibrant West Indian culture never lessened. This year, we decided it was time to return, at least part time. So we searched for just the right home and found the yellow house with the red roof and the blue shutters, located on our favorite part of St Thomas, destined to become High Blue Heaven!

Why the Owner Chose Rosendal, St Thomas, USVI:
We chose our house because of its breeze-friendly design and location, fabulous views and Caribbean charm. Over the four years that we have owned and enjoyed it, we have only fallen more in love with its spectacular location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You came for the view and the ocean...and at High Blue Heaven, you'll never stop gazing at it. But that's not all. High Blue Heaven offers one-third acre of flowering tropical plants and fruit trees: papaya, mango, avocado, and coconut grow on the grounds. Enjoy bird-watching from the decks, including hummingbirds, banana-quits, green parakeets, and red-tailed hawks. You may even glimpse our resident iguanas!
