ATTENTION: Our home is currently undergoing some repairs and renovations since hurricane Irma. We hope to be complete and renting again by early 2019, but the exact date is unsure. Thank you for your patience at this time.
The house is located on the quiet east side of Jost Van Dyke, overlooking many smaller islands and cays (Sandy Cay, Sandy Spit, Green Cay, Little Jost Van Dyke). Your arrival to the villa will ideally be via water taxi, and is the beginning of a memorable and relaxing vacation.
You will be met at the Sandy Ground dock by our caretaker, who will assist you with your luggage and provisions, and transport you the short drive up the hill to the house. From here you will encounter far reaching views, welcoming ocean breezes and a serene sense that all your troubles are all far behind you.
Two of the four bedrooms are situated in a two storey unit (one upstairs and one downstairs), each with its own en-suite and an upstairs living room with TV, DVD's, etc. Both bedrooms open up onto large wooden decks which wrap around the unit. This deck extends out to the pool area where sun loungers, rocking chairs, bbq, and a 270 degree view of ocean and islands await you. The third bedroom is in a seperate unit and consists of a kingsize bed with study and en-suite bathroom with roll-top bath and shower. This bedroom has wrap around glass windows with views over the ocean. The fourth bedroom is situated closer to the living area and contains a double and a twin bed, ideal for the children or another couple. The kitchen is fully stocked with modern appliances. A seating area with butcher block counters and teak bar stools separates the kitchen from the second living room. Three sets of double doors lead out to another large deck where you will find the covered dining area.
A dinghy is available as a complementary service for those wishing to explore the surrounding islands and beaches. All beach bars and restaurants on Jost are accessible by boat. The mangroves in the bay are a wonderful, safe place to explore on a kayak. One can also kayak, hike or dinghy to nearby beaches and restaurants. A double kayak is available for our guests to enjoy.
Jost Van Dyke has its very own dive shop if you are an avid scuba diver, or looking to get certified. There are some great dive locations nearby.
The shallow 'flats' in the adjacent bay are considered a great place for fly fishing.
Provisioning needs to be done ahead of arrival. You should arrive with all your groceries. You can always get a few emergency supplies in Great Harbor.
Great House Villa is your ideal getaway. This rental is suitable for a romantic escape or honeymoon, as well as a family and friends vacation.
