THIS WINTER, EXPERIENCE THE CARIBBEAN OF THE 1950s ON JOST VAN DYKE
At White Bay Villas and Cottages, on this Speck of an Island a Ferry Ride Away from St. Thomas / St. John / Tortola. The Vibe and The Pace are Perfect for an Unplugged Vacation. “Sleep, Jeep, Discover the Deep” Package offered through Spring 2011.
Among the cognescenti, no vacation in the US or British Virgin Islands is complete without a day trip to White Bay on Jost Van Dyke, whose easily-accessible, pearly sand beach is legendary. As White Bay visitors swig Pain Killers in a hammock at the Soggy Dollar Bar (think pina colada plus o.j.), groove to a native guitarist, or swim and snorkel in the shallow blue water, they can’t help but gaze up at the stunningly picturesque villas perched on the hillside and wonder “How can I stay there !! ??”
For the first time in its history, the premiere property on Jost Van Dyke -- WHITE BAY VILLAS AND COTTAGES (www.jostvandyke.com) will offer a package called “Sleep, Jeep, Discover the Deep.”
For $3,000 per couple per week (including accommodation tax), from December 1, 2010 thru April 30, 2011, WHITE BAY VILLAS guests receive a 7-night stay in a fully furnished and equipped private one-bedroom villa or cottage, use of a 4-wheel drive vehicle for the length of their stay (does not include jeep tax and gas), plus snorkel gear for exploring the island’s beaches and coral reefs. Two $75 coupons towards two dinners at Corsair’s (worth $150), a popular beachfront bistro in the village of Great Harbour, are also included, as are a welcome array of seasonal fresh fruit and assorted rum.
Many dream of discovering an island far from the madding crowd, and staying in a breezy, quiet home built for relaxation. This waterfront property is privately owned, and an on-site concierge is available 24/7 to cater to guests’ needs. Activities on Jost Van Dyke range from hiking its hills for majestic views, to day-long sail/scuba/fish trips spanning this corner of the Caribbean, to all-night dancing at the world renowned Foxy’s.
WHITE BAY VILLAS are perfect for first or second time honeymooners desiring a combination of seclusion and “the scene.” Spacious accommodations with modern amenities (Cable TV, iPod docks) make it especially comfortable for family or girlfriend getaways. Choose from a 4,000 sq. ft., 4-bedroom plantation villa, multi-level 2 bedroom villas, or comfy one bedroom villas or cottages. All boast shady and private tile patios with panoramic views. Travellers who recall or have heard tales about the Caribbean as it was 50 years ago – genuinely friendly, safe, simple and 100% stress-free – will find Jost Van Dyke and WHITE BAY VILLAS AND COTTAGES the perfect antidote to a life often spent in overdrive.
