About the property

4 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Pool, On Beach, Sleeps Up To 12

5/17/18 Update: We are currently in the process of rebuilding Escape Villa. It will be better than ever with structural improvements as well as a whole-house generator. The bedroom and bathroom layout is identical. Our target completion date is September 1, 2018 but to be conservative we have opened the calendar beginning in November of 2018.

Escape Villa (built in 2013 and rebuilt in 2018) has 3 master bedrooms with en suite bathrooms plus a fourth bedroom with en suite bathroom that can sleep up to 6 children in two full size beds each with a single bunk bed above. For clarity, our Villa is ideal for 4 couples or up to 3 couples with up to 6 children.

The property has three levels with the highest level containing two king bedrooms with bathrooms, the middle level contains one king bedroom with bathroom, one bedroom with bathroom with two full size beds and two singles, a main family room/kitchen area that opens up to outside dining, bar area, gazebo with grill and a beautiful infinity edge pool.

All bedrooms have decks off of them.

The bottom level is our 'chillax' area and contains beachside seating plus a bar with refrigerator and sink for spending those unforgettable sunsets!

There is an outdoor shower between the beach and Chillax and there is a full outdoor shower beside the pool.

We have been told this is the nicest villa on the island and that we have the best property managers on JVD. Please see our reviews for other opinions about our villa.

For sake of clarity, we only rent the entire property -- it is not available for one or two bedroom rentals, etc.

Perfect House and Location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of ten – six adults and four kids age six to ten – spent a week at Escape Villa in June 2017. All of the superlatives we’d read in prior reviews were spot on. The house is very well organized for a large group and the location can’t be beat. You feel like you have your own beach directly in front of the house, but are only a short walk from the bars and restaurants on the other end of White Bay. From the kitchen supplies to beach toys, just about anything you need is there. Most importantly, Lydia and Frankie, the caretakers on Jost, were great to deal with and helped us arrange everything from the water taxi to and from St. Thomas to provisioning the house. We are already looking forward to a return visit.

This will be your best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We chose Escape Villa to celebrate my wife's 50th with friends and family. We had fallen in love with White Bay and Jost Van Dyke from numerous sailing trips, but when we learned about Escape Villa, we knew that would be the spot for the celebration!

I honestly doubt that there is another house in the Caribbean situated quite so amazingly close to such an incredible beach. The house, the pool, the Chillax patio, the wonderfully equipped kitchen, there simply are no words. Everything was perfect. The owners Anne and Tim were very gracious and timely in answering questions as we prepared for our vacation. We used the recommended Riteway for grocery delivery and Caribbean Cellars for wine, beer, and champagne.

We hired Frankie for our water taxi to and from STT and I highly recommend. We also had Lydia and Frankie cook an amazing Caribbean dinner for us on my wife's birthday night. Fantastic!

Another highlight was our full day snorkel cruise aboard Calypso with Captain Colin of Jost Van Dyke Scuba. You simply must do this! We sailed to Norman Island and snorkeled The Indians and The Caves, and finished up with bevies at the notorious Willy T. restaurant ship. We even caught two tuna on the sail over! Two very wonderful dinners at Escape Villa were enjoyed by all!

I could go on and on....but I know we're already planning our return to Escape Villa!

This is the perfect villa for an adult vacation or a family with kids vacation.

This villa has a couple of amazing outdoor entertaining areas and the best access to probably the best beach on the BVI.

The view from the terrace is unbelievable!

We loved our stay and are planning to come back soon.

Exceptional Villa on the Beach

The villa was all we hoped for and more! Booking was a breeze. Frankie & Lydia are the best on-island contacts! Would not hesitate to return.

Pictures worth a thousand words. What you see is what you get, and it was beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

There was nothing we wanted for. All of the bedrooms were comfortable, private, beautiful views. The deck and pool were the perfect place to relax. The kitchen was modern and fully equipped. The outdoor fridges (deck and chillax) were most convenient. The beach was steps from the outdoor bar. Our hosts Lydia and Frankie could not have been more accommodating. Provisions from Riteway arrived as we did. Easy Eddie was the best taxi driver we could have asked for. It was a perfect week. We will be back if you'll have us!

Escape villa - appropriately named!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing! From the location to the incredible home, it just doesn't get any better. The layout of the house is super for a group of large family. Kitchen is well equipped and lots of provisions in the home. The view and sunsets are amazing! Rented a dingy from Frankie and sailed on calypso with captain Colin - you need to do both! If you get the chance to stay here, you will not regret it - wonderful memories and amazing people on the island of jost van dyke. The managers, Frankie and Lydia are just the best! I think Lydia runs the island - I would vote for her! Can't wait to return.

Car: not necessary

Jost Van Dyke, known as the barefoot island, is famous for its beautiful views, courteous locals, great restaurants and awesome bars!

It is a popular stopover for sailors and yachtsmen, but now you can enjoy the island through the rental of one of the most exclusive villas on the island.

Perfect for families, couples or anyone looking to get away from just about anything and enjoy the tropics.
