Amazing Views with a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I loved everything about staying here, and I book luxury travel villas as a career. First off, Karen and Nigel are great. Available for any thing you need yet offer the privacy you want. Amazing down to Earth people with great customer service that makes you feel comfortable.

The location is fantastic. You are right in the middle of what ever is going on and the view is picture perfect. Walk down and catch a cab back up.

The villas are luxurious and so comfortable. I personally don't think it can be beat on JVD, both pre and post storm. The home is in amazing condition and you can tell they truly want to offer a great service. I honestly wished I stayed longer.

I will be back and would personally recommend this property as a traveler and a professional. Thanks for a great getaway to Jost!

Best rental on Jost

  • 5 of 5

First, Karen and Nigel are such great people. They take such good care of this property and are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. I have been now been to OVV on Jost a couple of times and just like before, this place is the best. It's spotless upon arrival. TV, stereo, massive kitchen and it gets the best ocean breezes. The view is unbeatable. It overlooks Great Harbor. I spend hours sitting on the patio enjoying the view. You are minutes from White Bay, minutes from Foxy's. The people of this island are awesome and if you've never been, GO! Stay here and you won't be disappointed. One of the cleanest places I have ever rented, massive master bedroom, walk in shower, everything you might need. AC in the bedroom works well too. Rest of the house gets plenty of ocean breeze to keep plenty cool. You won't regret renting here and I will be back sooner than later!

Love Everything About This Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Nigel and Karen were most gracious in entertaining all my emails as I was nervous about renting. WOW! The house is awesome, we rented the 2-bed 2-bath with friends. This was so great, we are renting the 4 bedrooms in October. What a wonderful location. Excited to share this with my family. The hurricane has not stopped the gracious people of this island. Support the BVI! You are close to everything, Foxys, Sidney's Peace and Love, Hendo's, Foxy's, the list continues. Beautiful water! Love this island!

An immaculate property with a perfect view!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Ocean View Villa in the two bedroom, two bath unit in early June. The experience was perfect....from easy booking with responsive and accommodating hosts to the very well kept property with updated everything and spectacular view from the expansive balcony.

Response to my questions prior to arrival was immediate. Karen and Nigel could not have been more helpful and friendly. They were there to greet me upon arrival, checked with me a couple times during the week to assure I was happy and met me on departure day to wish me farewell and safe travels.

I will most definitely stay at Ocean View Villa again. Thank you Karen and Nigel!

This is an AMAZING villa. WE WILL BE BACK!!

  • 5 of 5

I don’t think you could find a better view on Jost! We loved everything about it. The views of White Bay & Great Harbor are breathtaking. Owners Nigil & Karen are the best Host!! We met so many other Island lovers & made so many friends! We loved waking up to boat watching while sipping coffee and watching the sun peak up over the mountain. The sunset from the 360 degree porch was equally as breathtaking. We felt we were living the life of a Kenny Chesney song. Visit Soggy Dollar for the day, lobster/steak dinner at Hendo’s and nights at Foxy’s dancing were highlights! The villa was even more amazing that the description and our expectations. We can’t wait to go back, even started planning before we even made it all the way back home. Thanks for the great hospitality Nigil & Karen!

Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

The view of Great Harbour is stunning! And the breeze was wonderful. The apartment is very nice. It is comfortable and was very clean. Nigel and Karen are so sweet and were great hosts! They live downstairs so they were around if we had any questions or needed anything. They are super friendly but not intrusive at all. We will return!

Snorkeling and boating are highly favored activities in White Bay. Aquamarine life is especially abundant in the bay.

Since Jost Van Dyke is a lush and under populated island, there remain numerous places to take eco-tours. Hike among the mangroves and palm trees in the mountains. Beach comb on a remote sand bar between Tortola and Jost Van Dyke called Sand Spit and Sandy Cay.
