Tree House Villa 12/12/01
Reviewers Rating: Excellent
This villa is located in Upper Carolina, on the top of Ajax Peak. It is 3BR/2BA, with a living area, washer/dryer, and an equipped kitchen (except for a dishwasher). We arranged the rental through Windspree Vacations, who met us at the ferry dock with our rental jeep, and then led us to the villa.

The view of Coral Bay and the valley from the front deck is incredible (like a TV ad for Travelocity or something), and you can see Tortola from the back deck. Even though we were up pretty high (850ft), it was a quick drive to Coral Bay or the north shore beaches, and about a 25 minute drive to Cruz Bay. The house provided plenty of privacy, with the exception of the mountain goats munching outside the bedroom window, and the very loud donkey that woke us up quite early one morning!

The best thing about staying at a private villa is all the little touches - there was a CD player and a library of disks, beach chairs and a cooler, a big hammock, binoculars (which my wife made extensive use of), and lots of spices and other things either provided by management, or that prior guests had left behind. There was even a scrumptious blueberry pound cake and coffee in the fridge when we arrived, so we didn't have to run to town to get breakfast the next morning.

The only thing I think most people would find daunting is the driveway. It is unpaved most of the way up, and required switching to 4WD to get up the hill. We got used to it very quickly, though. Also, some people would be concerned about the lack of AC, but at that height there were constant winds blowing through the house - so much so that it got a bit chilly at night. And the noise from critters outside at night was a different experience from prior rentals that had the AC whirring all night.

I would highly recommend this villa, and Windspree Vacations, if you crave seclusion, and don't need to be five minutes from shopping or restaurants. It's also a great value, in my opinion.
