1 - Location is unbelievable. Just a magical place. quiet, isolated, gorgeous. The beach is the most wonderful I have ever had the good fortune to vacation on, and we had it to ourselves. My kids are still talking about it. 2 - Loblolly treee house - in serious need of upkeep. The kitchen in particular is functional, but not... More

We stayed for 8 nights on Jost Van Dyke at the Great House Villa. We think Sandy Ground is the most rustic, beautiful, quiet Caribbean vacation spot we've ever visited. There are only seven houses in the "development" and all seemed to be linked by paths rather than roads. We arrived by water taxi, with a week's worth of groceries,... More

We stayed for about 10 days at the Loblolly Tree House and had an amazing time. I would recommend the private boat on your arrival so you don't have to hike the goat path with your food/provisions for the week, but take the public ferry on the way back to Tortola. Nadine and Leroy are very helpful if you need... More

We recently stayed at the newly rebuilt Sounion II villa on Sandy Ground Estates, Jost Van Dyke. Put pretty simply, you can't beat this place in terms of the location and privacy. Sandy Ground is a 17 acre estate on the eastern end of Jost Van Dyke. On the estate are 8 villas nicely spread among a lush and tropical... More

We just returned from our trip to Sandy Ground Estates on the East end of Jost Van Dyke. We stayed in House on the Hill located 80 feet above the ocean.

My husband and I spent a blissful week at Diamondview (House on the Hill). It was the most relaxing vacation we ever took. You couldnt ask for a better place to enjoy a completly peaceful relaxing, and totally private vacation. We went week after Easter so just at the cusp of "low season". Only 2 other houses occupied and we... More

We have just returned from an eight day stay at Sandy Ground Estate and are a little fearful of spreading the good news of this little gold mine to the world. That being said, it is a place that some people would not find ideal. This is THE place for those that don't need to be entertained by the bar... More

We have stayed at several of the villas over the past 15 years. Every villa is unique as they are privately owned, but each one has been wonderful. They all have exactly what is needed for a tropical vacation; very simple houses, open to the breezes, with wonderful views. As there are no roads to the estate, and with a... More
