About Howard and Lee Ann Jones

We first traveled to St John in 1994, with two very young children in tow, desperate to escape the London winter blues and destined for a reunion with some Boston friends. Earlier in our marriage we'd travelled to a number of Caribbean islands, but the beauty of St John was just awe inspiring. On that very first visit we purchased land, beginning a long and wonderful association with the Island of St John.

Whilst we contemplated the design of the house, we continued to visit renting a number of the charming houses in the Rendezvous Bay area, and finally built our own home in 1999.

As our family grew and aged, the one constant in all our lives was Leeward. In their early years, the children spent time in the shallows of Maho Bay, playing and learning to snorkel, but also accompanied us on hikes and more adventurous dives and outings as their confidence grew. Now we do all that, but can also throw in an hour at the Beach Bar or leave them at Woodies, the cool hangout for all self respecting youngsters.

Leeward has provided countless memories as the family has grown up. The London winters are still dreary, and we escape frequently to St John. The lure of the island is strong, and even after 18 years there is a rush of anticipation as we prepare for another visit. And the children , even with the two older ones now graduated from college, are still as keen as ever to get on that air plane and head to St John and Leeward.

It is a gorgeous island, and a beautiful house from which to enjoy it. Our family has done so, and judging by the number of repeat guests at Leeward, some stretching back over 10 years, many others have done so to.

We prefer to call guests 'Friends of Leeward' as opposed to 'Visitors'. We do hope you'll find time to visit St John, and if your travel plans incorporate another villa, that is fine too. Enjoy the natural beauty of St John. We know you'll be back.

Why Howard and Lee Ann Jones chose Rendezvous Bay

The South shore of St John is a popular destination for visitors. Rendezvous Bay is the most beautiful of the residential areas on the south shore, and Klein Bay is a charming and picturesque community within Rendezvous.

We were fortunate to buy this plot long before the real estate boom. It is a choice lot, high enough to benefit from the gentle trade breeze, but low enough to feel as if you can step off the deck in to the ocean. The house faces due south making the pool and deck a favoured place. Enjoying an early morning coffee on the deck overlooking Ditleff Point, lounging on the pool side furniture soaking up the sun shine, laying on a pool float listening to music from the outdoor speakers, or having a late afternoon cocktail are all options you'll want to consider. And the night sky is a a joy to behold.

The house itself benefits from high quality finishings. Yet it is not pretentious. Maintenance and cleanliness are high on the agenda, so you can relax in comfort. A/C in the secure bedroom wing, and copious ceiling fans throughout the property keep it cool. There are stunning views from almost every aspect.

We're a pretty active family, and after a day out on the latest adventure, nothing beats coming back to Leeward, firing up the BBQ, and sipping a cold beer or a rum cocktail whilst looking out over the ocean.

No Caribbean property is complete without a garden and we take pride in the gardens at Leeward. It can be challenging at times, but there is a good array of mature palms and shrubs, fruit trees including mango, banana, coconut, star fruit and lime. I like to rise early and wander about the garden watching the humming birds feed and marvel at the colours of the foliage and tropical flowers.

Leeward is a well maintained upmarket, family house with beautiful furnishings. Its views are unsurpassed, with many guests enjoying fabulous memories of the house. I feel confident you will to.

A Thanksgiving Trip to Remember

  • 5 of 5

My family of six rented this gorgeous villa the week of Thanksgiving. The management company, Carefree Getaways, were incredibly responsive and helpful with our questions leading up to the trip. They provided thorough and helpful information and there were no surprises. Well…the only surprise was that the villa is even more lovely than the pictures! Each bedroom and bath is beautifully appointed. Our kids are older (25, 25, 17 & 14) and the layout of the four bedrooms gave each of us privacy and no one felt like they "got the bad bedroom." The kitchen is fantastic and fully equipped. I even cooked a full Thanksgiving dinner -- and it was easy! The location is perfect. Just far enough way from the congestion of Cruz Bay, but very convenient for dining, beaches, etc. The views are breathtaking -- morning sunrise AND evening sunset from the privacy of the beautiful deck. We would HIGHLY recommend this villa and would choose to stay there again if we're lucky enough to make it back to St. John!

Owner's Response: We're very pleased that you all enjoyed a fabulous week on St John, and at Leeward. Having an on island management company is a big help. We've known Cindy, who runs Carefree, for over 20 years and we have complete faith in her and her team. We like the views from the deck as well. Hard to get a picture that truly shows it in it's glory. Many people who stay at Leeward say the same thing. Anyway, thank you so much for making the effort to post a review, and if the island lures you back, please do get in touch.

Great Home with very nice amenities.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two boys 9 and 10 recently spent a week at Leeward. The house was just great. Well appointed kitchen for cooking. It's very nice to have a home stocked nicely with most of the essentials already there. (paper towels, trash bags, etc). The pictures are what you get and that view is spectacular. Location works well to get to town or all the beaches. Store is close for anything you need. We will be back! The Carefree management team is always there for answering a question or just offering tips. Thanks for a great trip.

Paradise - a very special place!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for our one week family stay at the enchanting Leeward Villa and instantly fell in love with the place. Set upon the private mountainside overlooking Klein Bay and Dittlif Point, the views are breathtaking. The villa is just a short ride to Cruz Bay and close enough to all of the beaches by car. We enjoyed walking to Klein Bay, set right below the villa. A bit of a walk, but worth it to snorkel amongst the many fish and starfish.

It was simply amazing to wake up every morning to the beautiful view from the bedroom balcony. We enjoyed many relaxing mornings just sitting outside taking in all of the views with our morning coffee. We often spent our evenings and dinner poolside. Turning off all of the villa lights, we were in awe by the glitter of the many stars above us. We knew we were in paradise - a very special place!

The villa's accomadations were perfect for our stay. Each of the 4 bedrooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable. The professionally equipped kitchen was perfect for preparing meals during our stay. We enjoyed barbecuing and eating every evening poolside at the huge outdoor dinning table. Evenings we would relax in the beautifully furnished living room.

The management team at CareFree Getaways were most professional. From the moment we stepped off the ferry they made sure our stay would be most relaxing and successful.

We highly recommend staying at the Leeward Villa. Don't think twice - while on St. John - this is truly the place to be!

Owner's Response: Thank you for a delightful review. We are so pleased that you had a great vacation. This is our first year on VRBO and we understand that it can be a leap of faith when booking a house unseen, so it is gratifying when expectations are met, or even surpassed. Leeward has an enviable location, and we place a big emphasis on the house being maintained to a level that makes us all comfortable. St John has a way of seducing visitors, so whenever the calling next comes, do get in contact. Thank you again for spending the time to post a review.

Spectacular Setting

  • 5 of 5

The house was ideal for our group of three couples. We cooked great meals in the well-equipped kitchen and on the grill, then enjoyed eating them at the outside and inside tables. The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and we all slept exceptionally well.

Leeward is well-located, very well-maintained, and had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. We found it easy to work with the property managers, who were helpful, available, and responsive. We have stayed in many VRBO properties and most were excellent, but we would rank Leeward as the best and recommend it highly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such positive feedback. More importantly, we are delighted you were all able to relax and enjoy St John whilst staying at Leeward. Having a responsive on island representative is important for us all, so it's good to know that facet is also working well.

Great Villa Overlooking the water

  • 5 of 5

The villa was excellent. Everyone had a wonderful time and there was plenty of space so if you did not want to be around someone, there was somewhere to go! The pots, pans, dishes, knives were of good quality so cooking was a pleasure. The only issue we had was trying to figure out how to use the convection oven and the CD player did not seem to work properly. We would definitely look to return here. The views were great and a short trip to town. The last evening we did not cook at home but had a wonderful meal at the Ocean Grill in Cruz Bay. Would also highly recommend Cloud 9 Sailing Charters.

Owner's Response: We do appreciate people taking time to post a review, so thank you. Leeward views are stunning, and we are pleased you all enjoyed your stay. There should be laminated instructions for all appliances, but occasionally things go missing or an appliance just stops working. We have an excellent on island management company who are great to work with, so if anything is not working satisfactorily, or you're struggling to operate something, just give them a call. They'll have the answer right away, or they'll send the requisite maintenance man very promptly.
