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.

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.

Trying to disprove that “a vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in,” our fourth(!) stay at High Point convinced us (again) this is the perfect place to test this hypothesis (and yes, we’ll be back to make sure…). Situated atop a hill with sweeping views of the Francis Drake channel and surrounding islands, High Point is majestic without being ostentatious, inviting but not pretentious, and tasteful instead of tacky. High Point welcomes you from the minute you arrive, as you move through an open living concept or lounge on spacious decking surrounded by a lavish Caribbean landscape…with views everywhere! High Point boasts too many amenities to list, but floating in the pool and watching spectacular sunsets, gazing at a starry night sky from the hot tub, enjoying warm trade winds swinging in the hammock, sharing a drink at the outdoor bar staring down geckos, grilling fresh fish on either gas or charcoal grill, cleaning up in outdoor showers, and drifting off to sleep in a king-size bed listening to island sounds certainly makes for comfortable, carefree living. Who needs WiFi, TV, and VCR (all of which, of course, High Point has, including an expansive collection of movies for those who prefer a more “virtual” island life). For a more active lifestyle, High Point is perfectly located to explore nearby Smuggler’s Cove (find the off-roads around West End’s back side), take a day trip by ferry to nearby Virgin Gorda (The Baths) or sail to neighboring Jost van Dye (Soggy Dollar on White Bay Beach), SCUBA dive the HMS Rhone, or discover fantastic restaurants (try Sugar Mill and Brandywine), or…. Look: Just go!! The owners, Doug and Linda, are extremely responsive and helpful, always available, and they check in with guests to ensure all is well. High Point truly earns its name.
Stunning views, beautiful well-appointed home, very helpful owner, and greeter, too.
You definitely need a 4-wheel drive vehicle for getting to and from the villa. Once there, you will feel like you’re on top of the world! The view from the expansive deck is breathtaking. It’s quiet and peaceful and you have complete privacy. Furnishings are beautiful and the beds very comfortable. The pool is fantastic, especially star-gazing from it at night. You will love this place!!
A pool with a view!
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!
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"
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
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!!
We are conveniently located above Fort Recovery at the top of Towers Private Estate, 20 minutes to Road Town, 10 minutes to Nanny Cay and Sopers Hole (grocery store here)
30 minutes to Cane Garden Bay and less than 20 minutes to Smugglers Cove
