WOW FACTOR! SPECIAL FALL RATES IN 5 STAR LUXURY. NO BETTER VIEW

Northside Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)

Truly 5 star in every respect! Poised perfectly on a bluff overlooking Magen’s Bay Beach, this incredible villa presides majestically over one of the world’s most renowned beaches below. Watch our video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImwjtW_kPQE.

From your first step through the floral wrought iron gates at the entrance to Villa Panorama, you are literally surrounded by tropical flowers and panoramic views of ocean, bay and beach. The views are mesmerizing. Below the villa is a pristine nature preserve that extends without interruption down to the beach. Everything about this villa is 5-star quality.You can take a virtual tour on our website.

The totally new kitchen with granite and onyx counters, solid cherry wood cabinets handmade in the US, and all new appliances, is breathtaking. The Great Room features a wall of glass affording sea views from every vantage point. Step out onto the largest of the many terraces and decks which grace the villa, and notice how the turquoise of the bay near the beach gradually gives way to the deep blue of the ocean beyond. Or simply take your first dip in the crystal clear oversized swimming pool (among the largest on the island). If you prefer, a few steps to a lower terrace and a full sized hot tub/spa awaits. When you return to the Great Room, you will notice that the opposite wall is glass allowing you to enjoy another outdoor terrace and garden setting of palms, Birds of Paradise and other exotica. You can enjoy this private setting, complete with a soothing garden fountain whether you chose to be indoors or out.

In a bold departure from the typical Caribbean villa, this modern paradise oozes elegance in every possible way. You will find oriental carpeting in every room of this villa. If you tire of the stunning ocean vistas, take a break with one of the villas’ state of the art flat screen TVs or stereo system. The villa has an excellent DVD library for our guests. Enjoy the fully stocked wet bar. For the Internet user, high speed internet access is available.

This villa’s kitchen is a gourmet cook’s delight with its size and supplies. The vast counters allow your family or guests to nibble on appetizers or help in the preparation of meals without ever getting in each other’s way. If you prefer outdoor cooking, the new barbecue grill is an easy alternative. Your al fresco dining experience can take place pool side or garden side depending upon the mood. Of course the villa also features a more formal dining room with crystal chandelier, mammoth baroque mirror, and Tuscan china cabinet.

The villa contains 4 spacious bedrooms, including 3 master suites. Each is fully air conditioned, has its own TV/DVD entertainment center, and a distinctive ocean view. Each has a spacious bathroom with marble or tiling throughout. The three master suites all have private decks for sipping morning coffee, star gazing, or private sunning. Each room has a luxurious oriental carpet, European linens, thick comforters, huge mirrors, ceiling fans, and large closets.

Let our guides escort you from the airport to this fabulous villa in a private, secluded, gated community. Our concierge will help you with restaurant reservations, boat trips, provisions, and any thing you need to make this the most spectacular vacation of your life.

My husband, David and I purchased this villa in 2007 and worked with an architect and creative contractor to completely renovate it. Each of our children has a favorite bedroomroom in the villa, which are all large enough to have their friends enjoy some of paradise with them. Our other home is outside Philadelphia, so we find both the summer as well as the winter in St Thomas to be devine by comparison to the cold and humidity. Owning this gorgeous home that catches the Caribbean trade winds has been a gift we love to share!

Jackie purchased this villa in 2007

We came to St Thomas the first time as a graduation gift for our two middle children. We all fell in love with the water, temperatures, vistas, local people, and the peace we all felt. I remember my husband saying:'I bet if we lived here we would age more slowly.' That was enough to get us to a real estate agent,Camille DeCosta of Newland Real Estate that day. Camille was born and raised on St Thomas (leaving only to be a model in Italy for 10 years). The first house she brought us to was this one. She told us it had THE most fabulous view on the entire island. However, the house needed so much work and we were so apprehensive about undertaking such an effort so far away from home that we continued to have Camille show us properties for 3 more years! After looking at EVERY single piece of land and villa in the USVI, we finally agreed with her original statement. It is easier to gut the inside of a structure, add to it, improve it, and ship a container of furniture from the states than it is to recreate the spectacular views that Nature created on this spot! The end result was a fantastic villa located on the very best spot in the Caribbean (and trust me, we checked them ALL out).

My husband has always been a sun lover with skin that tans and never burns. So people always laugh when I tell them I have to drag him kicking and screaming to the beach. Now the beach to which I am referrring is Magen's Bay (always listed on the Travel channel as one of the top 10 beaches because of its heart shape and over a mile of pure white sand and crystal clear water with no seaweed or rocks). So what is his problem?? He would much prefer to just sit on our pool deck and stare out at the panoramic views of Magen's Bay and the British Virgin Islands. Our property goes all the way down to the water with only trees between the villa and the water. With his iPod playing smooth jazz, a glass of wine, my cooking, and these vistas he is content not to move for literally weeks on end.

Most guests don't go to his extremes, but all have said their experience at our villa was truly the best vacation of their lives. The furnishings are warm yet elegant. The open floor plan allows a large group to still enjoy the same space. The bedrooms are uniquely decorated and very private. There are enough outdoor balconies, gardens, and decks that everyone can also get away for some peace and quiet whenever desired.

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5
This villa is by far the most beautiful place on the island. We have been to the Virgin Islands several times, but never, ever stayed in such luxury. The master bath is to die for! I wanted to bring it home to my house! The privacy is fantastic and the décor is elegant. So much care has gone into everything. I am a clean freak and usually think the island houses are a bit dirty---but not this one!!! The cleaning crew treats the house as though it is their own and the villa manager is just about the sweetest person on earth, SO helpful.

The views are just amazing. You could sit all day by the pool and never get bored because it is just so gorgeous. I hate to write such positive reviews because too many people will want to stay here and we may not be able to get in when we want to come back!

Family of 6 - Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived and set our luggage in the entry way and toured the grounds with Camille, we knew this was going to be a remarkable vacation. The view from the pool deck was truly beautiful. I don't know how many times I looked outside over the course of the week and saw our girls just soaking in the Caribbean view and taking/texting pictures between dips in the pool. The vistas from the property are everything advertised. The amenities and appointments in the home were gorgeous. The house was a very enjoyable temperature during the day. With the sliding glass doors open, the trade winds kept everything so nice and relaxing. The air conditioning units in each room also made sleeping equally comfortable. We loved the world class kitchen and prepared and ate dinner as a family every evening, except for one evening at Iggie's Bar & Grill. This was a recommendation from Camille, along with Jet Skiiing at Bolongo Bay, and she was spot on with both of those suggestions. That afternoon and evening may have been the best day trip activity we did while in St. Thomas. We also went horseback riding on the beach and spent plenty of time shopping. Nothing about our accommodations disappointed. In fact, the entire family deemed this destination and Villa Panorama a definite redo. One of the things we loved the most besides the beautiful residence and being just minutes from one of the most breathtaking beaches (Magen's Bay) in the world, was how we were able to mix and mingle with the islanders and tourists when we wanted and then easily retreat back to the Villa for solitude, relaxation and family time. The island was also easy to navigate (rented a jeep and drove everywhere) and the people were all so friendly. Thank you for allowing us the pleasure of vacationing in this beautiful home.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5
My family of four stayed at villa panorama for just under a week and had a magnificent time. As previously stated, you WILL NOT find a more magnificent panoramic view. From Magens Bay beyond to Jost Van Dyke, Tortola and St. Johns, you can see it all! The house is quite large but it was great because my wife and I felt close enough to our 10 and 11 year olds, but they were able to settle in for the night in their room downstairs and mom and dad still had privacy. The pool is awesome and we spent afternoons after our adventures lounging taking in the view while the kids played in the pool. The hot tub, on its own balcony, is a nice touch and would really be nice on those cooler spring evenings. The AC units do really cool the rooms down in less than 10 minutes, and even in the heat of summer, the upper level with all the doors open had wonderful cooling breezes. Camile, the property manager, was on the spot via phone or text to help at a moments notice and offer suggestions or to coordinate services. If your not aware, the roads in St. Thomas can be VERY steep and windy, so I agree with a previous review that you might be most comfortable with a 4x4. With that being said our Ford Fusion rental sedan did quite well! I did bottom the bumper out a few times but the rental agency didn't question the scratches. The kitchen is great and dual refrigerator/freezers is a great touch for those bigger families that this house would be perfect for also. For those who like to work out there are some free weights downstairs (dumbbells and bench), and I was able to really enjoy running the nearly vertical 4-5 flights of stairs that run up behind the house in the mornings then working out on the pool deck. My wife is very particular about cleanliness and will often find fault at top tier properties. She found the house very clean and didn't complain once. There is so much to mention, but another favorite of mine was the giant master bath and walk in shower with a window that could be opened to let the breeze in and look out at the bay surrounded by rich jungle looking foliage on the mountain. It felt like I was showering in a treehouse. There are tons of birds around the house in the trees(we even saw two green parrots multiple times!??) and it was so tranquil to sit outside for coffee, wine, beers, ect. The kids loved the giant flatscreen tv in living room and dvd movies. We can't wait to return to St. Thomas!Lastly, If you stay, rent a boat and day trip to BVI!

Beautiful view and great private pool, but....

  • 3 of 5
The house is large and spacious, though with the multi-floored bedrooms, not ideal for small children. With the exception of the master bedroom, the other bedrooms are musty-smelling with out-dated furniture and decor. The pool is beautiful, as is the panoramic view of Magen's Bay, but there's no AC in the living quarters, only in the bedrooms. This made for some very hot mornings and afternoons, even with the trade winds. Also, the water pressure was so bad that no two people could shower at the same time, or use the washer or kitchen sink faucet. You are required to throw garbage out everyday and take a long drive outside of the gated community to throw the trash out. It was incredibly cumbersome and inconvenient. Finally, be very careful to inspect the house when you arrive, especially the screen doors and report ANYTHING that is broken or out of place to property manager. Otherwise, you will be charged for any damages, even if you didn't make them!

Owner's Response: The only negative comments we have EVER gotten on our villa are from people like this who damaged the property and became outraged when asked to pay to for significant repairs even after being shown a video of the damage. In this case the item had just been repaired 2 hours before they arrived, there were 3 witnessed to the repair and when they broke a window and destroyed a screen door, they claimed it was like that before they arrived and disputed the charges.

To address the substance of the concerns: In our pre-arrival packet it is stated that trash is picked up at mid-week and at the end of the stay. If guest want more frequent pick-up they just need to make those arrangements with the villa manager. With three toddlers in diapers, they decided to take their trash to the dumpster every day rather than pay $10 for that service.

Prior to summer storms, it can get humid. Therefore we have dehumidifiers in every bedroom and encourage guests to turn them on during the day when they are at the beach or at the pool. (My own daughter is allergic to mold and musty smells. We had stayed at the house right before these guests and know the house smelled perfect when we left). These guests specifically asked for the dehumidifiers to be put away during their stay. They were staying during a humid week and should have used the dehumidifiers.

Our photos were just updated this year. The you-tube video on our site shows every room and we constantly get comments on our gorgeous every room is.

It is hard to find a house where you can run a dishwasher, 2 washers, and 3 showers at once. However, we have just added an additional water pump in case guests need to do that.

We encourage all guests to let the villa manager know of any damage when they check in and as it occurs so it can be immediately repaired. 99% percent of our guests are honest about damage that occurred during their stay. Accidents happen but when we are not told and only find out when the next guests are about to check in, it costs twice as much to fix something on an emergency basis.
We encourage readers to read the other reviews from guests who did not damage the property.

Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for luxurious finishes and breathtaking views, you will find both and then some in this villa! My family and I had the great pleasure of vacationing in St. Thomas for a week - it was by far the most memorable vacation we've ever had. The villa itself is nestled up in the hills surrounding Magen's Bay (THE most beautiful beach I have ever seen, which is only a few minutes drive away). Every single room in the villa has a beautiful view that words simply cannot describe and the attention to detail in the design of the villa was equally breathtaking. The amenities include a fully stocked gourmet kitchen, granite and marble surfaces, and modern decor.

Both the owner, Jackie, and the property manager, Camille, made the rental experience extremely easy and pleasant. Upon arrival, our kitchen was fully stocked with groceries that we pre-selected, eliminating any stressful search for such items on our first day there. The villa was also impeccably cleaned and in great condition - just as the pictures represented. In addition, Camille went out of her way to make sure we could locate restaurants and other landmarks, since it was our first visit to St. Thomas.

As far as advice, I would strongly recommend that you rent a 4x4 vehicle as the villa driveway is rather steep. The 4x4 also came in handy as we navigated around the island since many of the areas are rather undeveloped. In addition, I would strongly recommend chartering a boat to see the British Virgin Islands and our favorite spot, the Soggy Dollar Bar. This was one of the most memorable activities while in St. Thomas and Camille can assist in setting this up for you as well.

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend the Villa Panorama. You will not find a more breathtaking view on the island - in fact, more times than I would like to admit, I find myself looking through pictures from this vacation, yearning for the opportunity to revisit the Villa Panorama!

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5
We had the wonderful opportunity to spend a week at the Villa Panorama in March 2014. The logistics of renting and paying for the villa went smoothly and we were met at the aiport by the property manager Camille. We called her when the plane landed and by the time we had our bags and rental car (Avis) she met us on the airport road to lead us to the villa. Our breath was taken away when we went out onto the pool terrace and looked out. The view was amazing and the best we saw during our week in St Thomas. It was a wonderful at all times of the day – morning, afternoon and evening. We spent most of our villa time outside by the pool or hot tub. The inside of the villa is magnificent and fully equipped with everything one needs. Most of our meals were prepared in the fully equipped kitchen and we barbequed almost every night. The bedrooms were great although we had to use the air mattress in one of the rooms to accommodate 2 families with 3 kids each. The villa was in a great location close to Magen’s beach and the ice cream store Udder Delight. We rented paddle boards (VIP Paddle Club) for the week (they delivered to us and picked up), rented a catamaran with two other families for a day of sailing and snorkeling (Double Fun), and went on a boat trip to British Virgin Islands (New Horizons) that included a stop at the Soggy Dollar Bar at Yost. We would definitely try to rent the villa again for our next St. Thomas vacation.
