Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, West End, Pool, Hot Tub, Total Privacy, Gazebo

Hello to those concerned about Tortola. Our home has survived Hurricane Irma and the roof is still on. That said it will be 5 to 7 months before electricity service is returned to our home. We are waiting to have someone reach our property and assess potential damage. One of our hurricane doors was compromised and we have damage to the interior of the unit. We do not know the extent of that damage. the BVI will not allow anyone on island yet and we are waiting for commercial flights to resume to St Thomas and Beef Island on Tortola.. We lost our solar on the roof. Please contribute to charity organizations to help the people in the BVI. They desperately need our help.

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.

About Doug Jones

Linda and Doug Jones are retired and live in Minnesota. They love spending time relaxing in the islands. Linda has a passion for landscaping and it shows. We have been married 42 years.

We love traveling and can be pursauded to share the winter season with guests. Call us and we will be glad to try and work out dates for you, especially if you can be flexible.

Doug Jones purchased this villa in 2001

Why Doug Jones chose Boway

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mr. and

Mrs. Jones,

we stayed at your Tortola villa

in April/May and would like to take the opportunity to thank you for

letting us

stay at such a beautiful place and for making our stay a very pleasant

one. We

come to Tortola for 18 years now from Germany and over the last years I always looked

up at

the villa and asked myself if it was for rent. Finally I found it and it fulfills all expectations. The view is

probably

the best on the island and you decorated it lovely. If I had a house

like this

it would look much the same. Also it is very unusual that the owners

contact you

on arrival and welcome you at their place. That was very kind of

you.

We sure

will come back and stay at High Point again, although it seem

difficult as

it is so frequently booked. But we do understand why that is

so.

Thank you

again.

Kind

regards,
Apr 2014

A pool with a view!

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a wonderfully relaxed stay at High Point Villa helped, without doubt, by the weather, the pool and the awe inspiring view. The villa is well laid out and very comfortable with all the kitchen and bathroom equipment/toiletries you could need, not only that but although we arrived at 11.00pm, Dale the housekeeper, was still there to let us in and show how everything worked - he even helped us change a tyre. The week passed off very smoothly, the only problem being having to leave!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from another spectacular vacation home from Doug Jones! This is our second rental with him, the first being his property in St. Croix. This home sits high on a hill providing you with beautiful vistas, amazing sunsets and lots of privacy. The house is fully equipped with everything you need for your vacation. We ended each day swimming in the pool with a cocktail in hand watching the sunset....life is good! What we loved most about the property is the open air layout and the outdoor showers! It is so nice to be able to take advantage of beautiful Caribbean nights under the stars and this house provides it all! Although the living space is all open, we did not seem to have too much trouble with the bugs. We kept the lights down and lit some candles which worked well. The kitchen has everything you need (and more!) to cook a gourmet dinner including a outdoor gas and charcoal grill. The house is private and very quite which is exactly what were looking for and you are only about a 15 minute drive to the best beaches on the island! If you are traveling with another couple or children, the bedrooms are on the opposite sides of the house which gives you plenty of privacy and quiet time away from the main living space. While it was very hot during our stay, the night breezes and the fans kept the house very comfortable and did not miss air conditioning at all. Do not hesitate to rent from Doug as he has been wonderful to work with and very helpful with island suggestions. His homes are spectacular and well cared for.

This is our "Happy place"

  • 5 of 5

If you want to leave the "real world" behind, High Point Villa is for you! This was our third time to stay at the villa and each time, we love it more. The hardest part of being here is leaving! Doug is a very attentive owner and the house is appointed in a way that you will instantly feel at home. In all our travels, there is no place we love like High Point Villa!

1st anniversary perfect

  • 5 of 5

The detail that the owners went through to make sure our stay was perfect was far beyond anything we could have asked for. The house was amazing and the views breath taking.

It was as comfortable as being in our own home and very private.

We loved every minute of our time spent there!!

Met all expectations and then some!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed a week at High Point Villa and it was the perfect setting for the amazing time we had planned. The house is beautiful and the layout is designed to capture all of the panoramic views. The house is very well decorated but is also inviting and homey. We enjoyed the breezes every evening on the deck and through the master suite. This house is exactly what you see in pictures and the views are spectacular!

Doug was very responsive to our questions prior to arriving, and also called to make sure everything was fine on arrival. We took the ferry from St. Thomas and used Jerry's car rental on Doug's recommendation. Jerry had a car waiting for us on arrival. Let them know you're staying at High Point and they will get you the perfect car for the driveway, which really isn't as bad as it had sounded in other reviews. There is a book of places to shop and eat when you arrive. We found everything easily. We bbqd at the house 4 times. If you plan on eating in, take a trip to the Rite Way in Road Town for the best selection. The smaller stores change what they carry daily. We took the ferry to Jost one day, and we booked a charter through Island Surf and Sail one day for snorkeling and island hopping. We recommend doing both.

Overall, the house was well maintained, everyone was very helpful, from Doug to Donna, who met us for a walk through on arrival. We loved our stay and cannot recommend it more highly!

Gorgeous Views

  • 5 of 5

A great time was had by all. Doug and Linda have a beautiful property on a beautiful island. Took a flight to Anegada for a day, went on the Catamaran with Captain Pete, snorkeled all over the place. Some of the best sunsets I have ever seen from Doug and Linda's deck. Thank you for your hospitality.
