Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Northside - High Blue Heaven WHAT A VIEW!

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Update 5/13/15: ONLY 2 WEEKS OPEN IN 2015 AND THEY ARE AT OUR LOWEST PRICES; otherwise sold out until May 2016.

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!

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, Robin, 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, Robin 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, boogie boards, 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.

DEAR GUESTS: PLEASE BE AWARE -- WE NOT ONLY PROHIBIT SMOKING INSIDE THE HOUSE - WE ALSO PROHIBIT IT ON THE DECKS OUTSIDE THAT FACE THE VIEW. 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.

About Cheryl Coon

The Coons live in Portland, Oregon and travel to High Blue Heaven whenever they can get away! Our history with St Thomas dates back to 1978 when she moved there from Philadelphia and soon found herself helping to establish the first environmental protection programs for the U.S. Virgin Islands. Her love for the islands, the sparkling turquoise waters, snorkeling and scuba and the vibrant West Indian culture never lessened. This year, we decided it was time to return, at least part time. So we searched for just the right home and found the yellow house with the red roof and the blue shutters, located on our favorite part of St Thomas, destined to become High Blue Heaven!

Cheryl Coon purchased this house in 2010

Why Cheryl Coon chose Northside

We chose our house because of its breeze-friendly design and location, fabulous views and Caribbean charm. Over the four years that we have owned and enjoyed it, we have only fallen more in love with its spectacular location.

What makes this house unique

You came for the view and the ocean...and at High Blue Heaven, you'll never stop gazing at it. But that's not all. High Blue Heaven offers one-third acre of flowering tropical plants and fruit trees: papaya, mango, avocado, and coconut grow on the grounds. Enjoy bird-watching from the decks, including hummingbirds, banana-quits, green parakeets, and red-tailed hawks. You may even glimpse our resident iguanas!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were here to support the bride and groom and so lucky to have stayed in this beautiful home. What an amazing view! We started off each morning looking at the beautiful view and ended each night watching the waves roll by. It was a wonderful experience!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple stayed here this past week. It's very emotional for us to write this review because we loved this home very much! The pictures don't do the home justice. As soon as we walked in there are slider doors all across the living room that have a full panoramic view of the beautiful island, Magen's Bay and Hans Lollick island. We loved sitting on the deck and in the house with all the sliders open...breeze was great! Robin was amazing! Immediate response from her was terrific! Be prepared to drive on the left side of the road, power outages, etc. after all, it's the island life! We had such a beautiful time and cannot wait to book again. All 4 of us agreed that the view was amazing and we would stay here again in a heartbeat! Can't wait to come back again one day!

Unforgettable Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Decorated with warmth and subtle charm, this home away from home is the perfect retreat for anyone wanting to experience island living on St. Thomas without feeling like a fish-out-of-water tourist. HBH provides an experience unlike anything you’re likely to have: inviting comfort and relaxation nestled on a lush tropical mountainside, coupled with stunning views of serene Magen’s Bay and surrounding areas below. The sounds you will hear at night from the forest are wonderful. Prepare yourself, as it will be very difficult just to tear yourself away from the view long enough to enjoy the other amenities this airy and spacious home has to offer such as an infinity pool, a sprawling deck with grill, a full kitchen with a dining / living room / entertainment area and two cozy bedrooms (the one upstairs has its own deck with an equally stunning view).

If you do manage to get out to see the rest of St. Thomas, HBH is perfectly situated, a mere 10 – 15 minute drive to the popular locales: downtown/Charlotte Amalie and Frenchtown for site seeing, shopping and dining, Red Hook for more dining/nightlife options and catching the ferries to the neighboring islands and of course, any of the island’s splendid beaches.

High marks for the level of hospitality this home has to offer – the attention to detail (beach chairs, beach towels and robes are some those perks) is evident throughout and Robin’s personal touch as caretaker (always accessible by phone or text) will make your stay all the more enjoyable.

With a name like “High Blue Heaven”, you simply cannot deny that this property lives up to its name. It is a wonderful island treasure, hard to leave and certainly hard to forget.

Never had a Better Vacation!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end we had a stress free vacation (except for driving lol)! High Blue Heaven was everything we hoped it would be. Usually we would always want to be seeing the sights but HBH would call us back on a sunny day to hang out on the deck and enjoy the pool. Robin, the property manager, took very good care of us and was meticulous about the house being perfect, and spot with suggestions. The house is very beautiful right down to the Restoration Hardware soft towels and sheets. A very nice touch! The deck is completely private minus one corner of the deck so that you felt all alone with the gorgeous view. We stayed in the upstairs bedroom and were never without a breeze. When considering vacations normally we wouldn't entertain going anywhere twice, but HBH is a consideration we enjoyed it so much! I really cannot think of anything negative. We were sad to go home since after a week, we felt like HBH was home.

"No Worries" at High Blue Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our MARVELOUS stay at High Blue Heaven. The house is very nicely located close to the many attractions the island has to offer but you may just want to hang out on the deck and enjoy the superb view of Magen’s Bay!

We loved the island décor and the personal touches that the owner has added throughout the house. The two bedrooms offered great privacy for two couples and the open floor plan with the living room, dining and kitchen area gives the house a real “home away from home” comfortable feeling. We loved sitting on the deck having our morning coffee enjoying the views and the iguanas in the neighboring treetops.

The pool was a little bit cool for us – our mistake – we should have requested to heat it and would recommend that option to future guests visiting in January. Caretaker Robin was extremely helpful with information on the area and any questions we had about HBH. She was always only a phone call, email, or text message away!

We had a wonderful time…such a nice break from the snow and ice in upstate NY. Thank-you so much for sharing your lovely get-away place with us!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely review Sue. Yes, we did add the heating option for those who like their pool temperatures warm; others find that the pool is refreshing as is. Come back soon!

High Blue Heaven is no hyperbole!!

  • 5 of 5

Simply put: this is a lovely house in a fantastic location with stupendous views!! The house has been lovingly & tastefully furnished with delightful, whimsical touches and has very comfortably accommodated our family of 5. It is also impeccably well maintained by the caretaker.

The house has two beautiful bedrooms, one upstairs and the other downstairs, each with its own terrace. The terrace upstairs has the most glorious views, but the one downstairs is huge and its views are also stupendous. Family members, or friends staying upstairs will have as much privacy as they want from the folks staying downstairs. The house is very quiet (located high above Magens Bay (an easy 5 minute drive to its very swimmable waters) and benefits from nice breezes on a warm day. It is only just a 10 minute scenic drive to Charlotte Amalie, the charming capital of St Thomas and 15-20 minutes to the airport, and just 20 minutes to Red Hook, the jumping point for boats to St John or the British Virgin Islands. We also appreciated the fact that the house faces north, hence the terraces provide shade throughout the day so one can enjoy the breathtaking views while sitting in the great outdoors.

Any negatives? None that we can think of...except the fact that you've got to book your reservation fast and far in advance because the "secret" is out that High Blue Heaven lives up to its name!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Peter, for taking the time to post this review. It will reassure anyone who is new to VRBO and wonders whether a place can possibly be as lovely as it looks. Every time we get a chance to stay at High Blue Heaven, we marvel at the beauty of the view and the comfort of the house. It's nice to hear that you felt that way too!

The most beautiful view I've ever seen!

  • 5 of 5

I'm a little bit late in writing this review (sorry for the delay!), but we had so much fun that I am actually in the process of booking my next trip to this beautiful island home - and we're planning to bring my parents this time! We enjoyed touring around the island and shopping and going to the beaches, but our favorite thing to do was turn on the CD player (they have a selection of fun island tunes) and lay out by the pool and enjoy that absolutely stunning view of Magens Bay. I've stayed in several different houses and condos in St. Thomas and High Blue Heaven was, by far, my favorite - we are so excited to come back!! Thanks so much to the wonderful owners for allowing us to stay in their fabulous home!
