Journey to Paradise…
Escape Villa is located on beautiful White Bay Beach on Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. It is, first and foremost, a luxury retreat for its owners. On a limited basis, it is also rented for periods of one week or greater. We are so happy that you will be able to experience this wonderful place and enjoy it as much as we do.
British Virgin Islands
The British Virgin Islands, also called Nature’s Little Secrets, lie approximately 75 miles east of Puerto Rico, north of the Leeward Islands, and adjacent to the U.S. Virgin Islands. Bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the north and the Caribbean Sea on the south, it is known for its crystal blue beautiful water. Grouped around the Sir Francis Drake Channel (named after the daring British adventurer who launched an attack against the Spanish from the islands in 1595) there are over 60 islands and cays that make up the BVI.
Jost Van Dyke
Jost Van Dyke is located five miles north of St Thomas and St John and four miles west of Tortola, BVI. The island is four miles long and two miles wide and has a highest point of 1,054 feet. The island is home to rugged and beautiful scenery, great beaches and a great climate. Jost Van Dyke is friendly, small, secluded, and has less than 300 year round inhabitants.
