Jost Van Dyke - The Pink House

Subject: Pink House, Jost Van Dyke

Location: White Bay

Title: The Pink House

The Pink House on White Bay, Jost Van Dyke, is the nicest property on the island (from what we saw and heard). It is a 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, fully equipped property. There is a full kitchen, sound system (complete with iPod dock and outside speakers), ceiling fans throughout, A/C in the downstairs bedroom (1/2 bath), gas grill, 3 decks (equipped with chairs for lounging), and has spectacular views. The property is beautifully landscaped and is steps away from a beautiful and private beach. You can snorkel right off the shore and along the rocks in the bay.

Jost Van Dyke is very uncommercialized at this point, though there is electricity. Some supplies can be found in the town, as well. It is reachable by ferry or water taxi only. You may experience an occasional power outage, but nothing that can't be dealt with.

The house also has blender, microwave, washer/dryer, dishwasher, ice-maker (key!), outside shower, and linens are supplied (including beach towels). You just need to bring what you will use (some of it can be purchased on the island). We shipped some stuff ahead (bug spray, suntan lotion, etc.) and bought food items in Tortola the morning we caught the ferry to Jost.

The Pink House is located within walking distance of quite a few bars, restaurants, and "snack shacks" all open for lunch (including One Love, Soggy Dollar, Ivans, Greta's...).

We held our wedding on the beach in front of the house and you couldn't ask for a more perfect background for a lifetime of memories (and some great pictures!).

If you make it down, be sure to sign the guest book. Oh, and have a Painkiller or Bushwacker at One Love for us!
