Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the windy hill house in off-season with friends of mine and it was absolutely fantastic. You feel the true island vibe and the beauty of the island. We loved seeing the yellow finches every morning coming to drink their sugar water.The home is decorated West Indies and we loved it.The kitchen is open and modern which is in the main living area. The bathrooms are all in tiled and the showers are all true walk-ins. The house has a spectacular view of Tortola, and the Sir Francis Drake channel. All of the nearby beaches are 3-5 min away, couldn't be in a better location. We cooked a lot , but if you want to go out there are great restaurants 5 mins down the road in Spanish town and up by the Coppermine. Joleen was great! She is very accommodating to all of our needs and gave us the lay of the island.

We will be back again next year. Great trip!!!!!!

Experience VG living

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here in Nov. 2015. We loved the house. It is open concept which was a big change for us but did not take long to adjust to, as it is beautiful and airy. The house is comfortable with lots of places to sit outside and take in the beauty of the island. Our our compliant was that we had none of our family here to enjoy it with. Joleen is close by but you would never know it unless you went to find her she still enjoys the beauty of the island daily and is always out exploring . She is quick to share her island experience with you! The house is equipped with lots of snorkeling gear. We snorkeled in a lot of the USVI and BVI but really enjoyed the diversity at the baths and Spring Bay. We also really enjoyed the hard downpours at night and the great weather in Novermember. Hardly any mosquitos and really did appreciate the A/C in the bedroom and use of renting a vehicle directly from Joleen! We hope to come back and share this gem with our children! THANK YOU JOLEEN!

This property was amazing !!!

  • 5 of 5

This house , perched up high on a hill...had amazing views and was perfect !

We loved the open air concept...cool and constant breezes insured all day and night comfort !!

The sitting areas are numerous....great for entertaining local friends you may meet, or just a nice quiet getaway to read and enjoy the peace and quiet .

This home was so well equipped.....it has everything you need...all the comforts of home and then some !!

Our every need was catered to by the amazing maids that arrived daily ....their daily comments being..."you are our guest....you are special." Loved it !!!

Joleen was the perfect hostess !!! Charming young lady which shared her knowledge of the island as well as extra treats she picked up from the local stores.

We loved our stay and would definitely stay there again.

We have traveled the world and this was by far one of our favorite places we have ever stayed !!

And last....There are no words for the magnificence of Virgin Gorda and its people ❤

Spectacular Virgin Gorda vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 weeks at this wonderful home. Our adult kids joined us the second week. We rented Jolene's car and she shared her secret beaches and parking spots. This island has the most beautiful beaches of any tropical place so far, and most of the time, we had them entirely to ourselves. The mosquitoes at the house are vicious at dusk and dawn, but you can escape them with the air conditioned bedrooms. The pool is refreshing, the house was clean and quiet. The kids were happy to have Wi-Fi internet connections. We enjoyed the Asian Fusion cuisine at Coco Maya Restaurant. Have a drink next door and watch the giant tarpon swimming right in front of you in the lighted waters. I would recommend this vacation home to my friends.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Virgin Gorda. It exceeded our expectation. Not only was the island wonderful but the house we stayed at was amazing. Joleen was a gem. Her knowledge of the island was a great benefit to have around. Not only did she recommend some of the best beaches, restaurants, and activities, she also invited us to snorkel with her so she could show us sea turtles. What an amazing experience. The open house concept was new for us but easy to get used to. The house is well taken care of. Pictures are accurate and up to date. Take advantage of renting her car so you can easily travel around the island. Be sure to visit Spring Bay, it is so beautiful. I highly recommend staying at this wonderful home. I cannot wait to return next year!!

Wonderful, Family Friendly Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an outstanding visit to Virgin Gorda, largely due to Joleen's hospitality. Her property is perched on top of a centrally located hill providing great views and tropical breezes. When we weren't out exploring, my husband and I enjoyed relaxing on the porch or cooking in the open kitchen while our kids played in the cute little pool. Jolene gave us advice daily on where to visit and how to get there. She did an expert job of being available to help without being intrusive of our stay. Highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to Virgin Gorda.

Beautiful Island Home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful open concept island cottage/house. Beautifully decorated with all the comforts of home. Lots of room with large porch for dining, relaxing or entertaining. Joleen couldn't have been sweeter. With all her knowledge and advice for beaches, snorkeling and excursions, we would have never found the secret spots to enjoy. We normally find a different island every year, but we will be returning again as we really haven't scratched the surface of things to see and do. Do yourself a favor and contact Joleen for a great battery charging vacation. Thanks so much Joleen, we miss you already.
