“The Best”
Reviewed 21 July 2021 for a stay in June 2021

We did our annual trip to the island & we stayed at our favorite place again. Karen & Nigel are the ultimate hosts and OVV has everything to make a most relaxing vacation. We use one of their rental vehicles to visit with friends & check out the changes to the island. The views & the grounds are beautiful; we like to sit on the deck and have a meal or just chill with a good book. For swimming White Bay can’t be beat & with restaurants in White Bay and Great Harbour you can always find a good meal. We enjoy waking up to the sound of the goats & if you’re lucky you’ll see a mongoose (they’re everywhere but they are shy). We can’t wait to get back & visit all our friends on Jost.

“Awesomely Amazing Home Away From Home!!!”
Reviewed 2 March 2021 for a stay in February 2021

Karen and Nigel are amazing hosts! They are very responsive and leave no doubt that you're in great hands! All queries or concerns were answered in a timely manner prior to staying at the property.

First class service with a taxi sent to pick us up at the ferry dock, and a warm welcome once we arrived at the property itself!

The grounds are spectacular with a view to match! The villa we stayed in left nothing to chance! All the amenities one could ask for and the cozy comfort of a home away from home!!!

We will definitely be returning!!

I have never taken the time to write a review about the places I have visited but after returning from Jost van Dyke I felt compelled to write a review of the vacation rental we stayed in. It was quite an unusual situation from the beginning of the reservation until we finally got to go. We were scheduled to go December 2017. The hurricane devastated the island September 2017. The owner, Nigel Howell, worked with us on rescheduling our trip. We finally made it October 30, 2019. I have never worked with two finer people than Nigel and his wife Karen. Their rental unit was absolutely amazing. There was everything anyone could ask for, right down to sunscreen and bug spray. Amazing rental and amazing views. The pictures are amazing but you will be surprised that it is better than the pictures. If you want to go for a stress free vacation then you need to visit Nigel and Karen at the Ocean View Villa. Jost is a great little island with very friendly, very nice residents. You can't go wrong here. I will be going back!!!!

“Perfect stay on Jost Van Dyke”
Reviewed 24 October 2019 for a stay in October 2019

Like many people, we have visited Jost Van Dyke by day boat, but had never stayed on island, so we didn’t really know where to start as far as locating a villa. We chose Ocean View Villa due to its great location between White Bay and Great Harbour and because of the great reviews and most importantly the excellent attention given by the owners when I had questions about the Villa. It was just the two of us for a couples long weekend following a longer week elsewhere in the BVI and it was perfect. The Seascape Villa was a perfect couples escape. Wonderful views from all around the balconies, high up to catch the refreshing breeze in the afternoon, and I can’t put into words how wonderfully we were hosted by Nigel and Karen, they made us feel at home, rented us a car at a reasonable rate (you might not need a car if just going to white bay or great Harbour, but we like to explore the island over to east end so this made it so convenient), and even picked us up and took us back to the ferry dock! I can’t say enough about how clean our 1bedroom was, along with the rest of the grounds, they must put in so much time working to make this property a little piece of paradise, it was beautiful.

This third floor room can get pretty warm in the day if you have it closed up all day, however once you open up the two main doors, the great breeze cools things right off. There is a powerful wall AC unit in the bedroom that will easily cool down the room for the night, and frankly once the doors are open in the rest of the Villa you really don’t even need AC elsewhere, it’s very comfortable.

We plan to return to Jost Van Dyke in the future and it will be easy now, because there is nowhere else we need to look but Ocean View Villa! Thank you both for hosting us last weekend!

“Truly amazing villa!”
Reviewed 9 July 2019 for a stay in July 2019

We stayed here the first week in July for a friends wedding taking place down the road and it was absolutely perfect! The view is the best on the island and the place itself if nicely furnished and has a powerful AC unit in each bedroom. The hike up and down is intense, but it’s like that everywhere and it is not far from anything. Our hosts were so nice and accommodating as well I will definitely be back as soon as I can!
