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! Visit our website for additional details and reviews at http://highblueheaven.com 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, Katie, 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, Katie 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, 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.

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. Keywords: villa, home, casa

The property is clean, well-maintained and is located within a 20 minute drive to most attractions. Magens Bay Beach is a 5 minute drive and is open and in good condition. The bars, restaurants, and shops at Red Hook, Havensight (Port) and Downtown are open for business. Most businesses are open in Cruz Bay, St. John as well. There is a lot of rebuilding to be done on the islands because of the hurricane damage but there is plenty for vacationers to enjoy now.

When we arrived at the villa it was exactly as advertised and it exceeded my expectations. The pool is amazing with a view that never got boring. We spent most of our week relaxing at the villa and The beach at Magen's Bay. The villa was very comfortable with excellent outdoor living space. Towels and bedding great. The kitchen had great cookwear. The owner Andrey was extremely responsive throughout the rental process. We were not sure what to expect on St Thomas post-Irma. The villa is on the side of the island that appeared to be less damaged. The foliage is green and the beaches are beautiful. Restaurants are open and grocery stores fully stocked. Don't be afraid to stay in St Thomas.

                                                                      First off, what a great place. We stayed at Hight Blue Heaven the last week in January 2018. You'd never know there was any storm. House is in great condition, no damage at all. Awesome views of USVI's and BVI's. The deck and pool on main level is great place to just relax, and enjoy the views, sunrises and sunsets. We spent many hours floating in the pool. House is well decorated, including a few guitars to play and a steel drum that the owners is ok with using. Kitchen was well equipped for gourmet cooking. Had everything we needed. Both bedrooms had comfortable beds and gentle breezes. No need for AC. Megans Bay Beach is a short 3 min car ride. We walked there. House has beach chairs and cooler for use. . WiFi was good and TV's in living room and both bedrooms. We'll stay there again. Katie, the house manager was great. She meet us at the airport and we followed her to the house. She is a great source of island info, and was available for any question we had. As for the island, recovery is well underway. All of the restaurants and beach hangouts are open for business. We had no problem getting around to anywhere. No issues with power or cell service. All the stores are well stocked and had everything we needed. Great time to be on the islands, and stay at Hight Blue Heaven

                                                                      We were the first guests to visit HBH after Irma. We came to St. Thomas unsure of the condition of the island and amenities. We found the house in even better condition than our stay a few years ago. The island was easy to get around, maybe even easier than previous years beacause fewer stop lights were working. Although the island is in recovery mode, we found plenty of restaurants open and appreciative of us being there. The beaches are in excellent shape...we found Lindquist and the facilities there to be the best on St. Thomas. One love boat charters took us out 2 days. White bay beach was better than ever with soggy dollar and the addition of Hendo’s Hideout. The foliage on St Johns beaches seemed to take a lttle harder hit, but still very nice. Even though a lot of the homes on St. Thomas and hotels are in repair mode, HBH and the beaches are in great shape. We would highly recommend visiting St. Thomas and HBH.

The perception is that the islands are worse off than they actually are. Yes, some activities and areas are still not available, but majority of restaurants, stores and business have re-opened on St. Thomas and the best way to help recovery is to visit. It’s still a beautiful place. The sun is still shining, greenery is back, the water is still crystal clear. Whether you rent High Blue Heaven or select any other place, visit St. Thomas and more then likely, your vacation experience will be a great one. As for HBH, thank you for noticing improvements we have made since your last visit and hope you can come back at some point in the future.

What a beautiful home - clean, comfortable, and well-maintained. The owner and property manager are great and both were very helpful. We couldn't stop marveling at the amazing views, they were just gorgeous! The location of the villa was a plus, just a few minutes' drive to Magen's Bay and pretty much close to everything - within 5 - 20 minutes to the grocery stores, restaurants, Red Hook terminal, the other beaches, and to Charlotte Amalie. One of the best places to stay in the Caribbean. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

The view from the pool is the best in St. Thomas along with the privacy you would want on vacation. We chose to rent this home to have our own space away from the tourist crowd, and it was not a mistake. This trip will be one my husband and I never forget. Ms Katie, the property manager, was also so sweet and informative. She was there for anything we needed, which made staying on the island much more comfortable since we had never been to St. Thomas before. We also rented a Jeep through discount car rental since they are one of the few who will let you take the jeeps over to St. John, and they were also nice and informative. We did a charter with the Bad Kitty to Virgin Gorda (the Baths) and other islands, visited Megens Bay, Smith Bay, and did Snuba through VI Excursions which included admission into Coral World. Smith bay was very pretty and quiet (bring your own lunch for that one) they have really nice showers and bathrooms too. However, our favorite beach was Coki beach. That beach had the best snorkeling and is where we did our Snuba excursion. They also have waiters for food and drinks; it does get packed though. We went really early in the morning for Snuba and no one was there and then again around 1pm, which was busy. It's so pretty though, it's worth the crowd and I'm not one for crowds. We will definitely be back to visit with our family and plan to stay at High Blue Heaven again. It was the best vacation to celebrate our 10 year anniversary! Thank you so much for the great memories!
