The New Landscaping Is Well On Its Way!

So much has happened to our beautiful little island here in the Caribbean and we are so excited to share how things are coming along.

So much has happened to our beautiful little island here in the Caribbean and we are so excited to share how things are coming along. Nearly a year and a half ago hurricane Irma wiped out much of the vegetation here on Jost Van Dyke but things are well regrown and getting lusher with each day.

Here's Victor who is responsible for landscaping and gardening and is also our Spanish speaking interpreter. He lives in Jost Van Dyke and is from the Dominican Republic.
Our lovely ornamental areca palms (also known as butterfly palms) on the left and Christmas palm trees just before they were shipped from the nursery.

To further develop the vegetation regrowth, we have purchased over 150 new palms and a variety of indigenous plants such as avocado, breadfruit, sea grapes, bougainvillea, and oleander. We are busy beautifying the property but strategically planting to give our guests additional privacy without obstructing any of the beautiful views of the breathtaking Caribbean waters and unforgettable sunsets.

It's easy to enjoy the planting process when you get to dig with an excavator in the Caribbean sunshine!
Our hand-built, rock wall landscaping not only looks fantastic but it also strengthens the property's surrounding foundation and soil pack.

As we have mentioned before, it has been a long-time vision of ours to continue the transitioning from gravel to paved roads in the White Bay Villas 18-acre property on stunning White Bay. That plan is in motion and we love how the roads are turning out. We are happy to say that Phase 1 is now complete! The new concrete roads allow you to more easily navigate our private island paradise, and in addition, they enhance safety and better control stormwater.

And after. Our new concrete roads wrapping through the beautiful Hillside Villas.
During the pour, we just had to pause to enjoy the beautiful sunset.

Stay tuned for more updates on our landscaping and environmental efforts here at White Bay Villas. Many more exciting plans are in the works!

See you soon in paradise and Cool Runnings!
