Overview

West End Villa Rental Photos and Description

7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms, sleeps max 14-22

The Location: Siren's Song is located within an exclusive 400+ acre development, The Preserve at Botany Bay, which currently has 10 large homes on 2.5 to 15 acre lots, and a security gate manned 24/7. Siren’s Song is perched on its 2.5+ acre gated lot of cliff top land, with 700 ft of water front. A 5 min stroll takes you to the beach at Mermaids Chair, a sand bar that separates the Atlantic Ocean from the Caribbean Sea and connects St Thomas to a small island to the West, called Little St Thomas, owned by the Nature Conservancy. The beaches of sand shells, corals and pebbles are constantly changing with the winds and the tides. Just off shore the unspoiled coral reefs are alive with a multitude of live hard and soft corals and many different species of tropical fish. Your neighbors are Siren's Song's owners who live on the adjacent lot and are happy to assist if needed. The living area, dining area, five bedrooms and outdoor terrace have balconies with stunning 250+ degree sea views of uninhabited islands. On a clear day you can see St Croix to the South and Puerto Rico to the West. If you yearn for peace, serenity and tranquility away from crowds and traffic, and want an unforgettable island experience that few have been privileged to share, then Siren's Song will enchant you, yet its only a 20 min drive to downtown, abundant with activities and world class restaurants.

The House – Main Level: A terra-cotta replica Chinese emperor welcomes you into Siren's Sons' foyer where a waterfall ushers you into this luxurious villa. Ahead is a cozy sitting area with six chairs and steps leading down to the pool level below. To your right is the gourmet kitchen, breakfast bar and dining area, with alfresco dining on the terrace beyond. The terrace has a gas grill and 2 dining tables each with a sun umbrella for shade and 6 chairs. The dining area has a 12 ft dining table with 14 matching dining chairs. To your left is a powder room, the living area with three comfy white sofas and media centers. Further to the left an archway leads to 3 air conditioned bedrooms ( 2 king and 1 twin) and 2 bathrooms. The king bedroom with forest views has a separate outdoor entrance. The main level has Italian ceramic tiles on the floors, with scattered rugs and natural wood ceilings. Furnishings are largely mahogany reproduction Caribbean antiques with art work collected from around the world by the owners.

The House – Upper Level: Siren’s Song’s upper level, accessed by a stylishly curved staircase from the main level has 4 air conditioned bedrooms, each with a 4 poster, king size bed and en-suite bath, and its own private balcony with sea and island views. There is a sofa bed in a smaller air-conditioned bedroom, which has an enclosed washer / dryer laundry, perfect for small children who must be near parents. Another sofa bed is on the large atrium landing of the upper level. A deck with chairs extends along a portion of the upper level, with forest views, swept by refreshing Caribbean trade-winds. The upper level has wooden floors, with scattered rugs and wooden cathedral ceilings. Furnishings are largely mahogany reproduction Caribbean antiques with art work collected from around the world by the owners.

The House – Pool Level: At the pool level, five fountains cascade into the infinity edge pool, which overlooks the lower level gardens, Caribbean Sea and several uninhabited islands. The pool is four feet deep and has benches along the sides for sitting in the pool. The pool is surrounded by green lawns and lawn furniture and there is a double sink wet bar. Additionally the pool level has a second grill and a refrigerator. There is also exercise equipment, pool toys, beach toys, a half bathroom, outdoor shower and second washer and dryer. Under the wet bar is snorkel equipment pool exercise equipment and fishing gear.

The Beach: On the beach to the East of Mermaids Chair, the land belongs to the owners of Siren's Song and they have for your enjoyment some umbrellas for shade, tables chairs and loungers. There are also 3 kayaks. From Mermaids Chair you can take a short hike across Little St Thomas to natural boulder rock pools washed by the sea. For the more adventurous a mile hike will take you to another beach within The Preserve at Botany Bay, called Sandy Bay. Mermaids Chair, Little St Thomas and Sandy Bay are generally deserted and you will probably be the only people there. Spend your sun spangled days snorkeling, shelling, beachcombing, fishing, hiking, kayaking, picnicking and luxuriating in the natural boulder pools.

About Lynda Hartmann

I am Lynda and I have lived in the US Virgin Islands for 24 years. The first 10 years within the National Park on St John, and thereafter at Botany Bay, which is so much nicer than St John. My husband Marshall has lived on St Thomas for 19 years. We have retired here and love it so much we have even built our crypt!

Lynda Hartmann purchased this villa in 2005

Why Lynda Hartmann chose West End

We built Siren's Song on the lot adjacent to our own home. We just love it here and although we travel the world, we have never found anything, anywhere more wonderful than this location.

What makes this villa unique

Peace, serenity, space, amazing views, fabulous night skies - all away from the maddening crowds; yet very convenient being only 8 miles from the airport, 7 miles from lots of restaurants and bars, 15 miles from the golf club, etc

BEST HOUSE FOR ANY EVENT!

  • 5 of 5
This house is way better in person than photos could ever capture. We rented it for a bachelorette party and it was perfect. We all loved the house, the pool, the private beach, the setting and, in particular, the caring and outstanding hospitality of Lynda and Marshall. They went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed for the week, and both were so very helpful in the planning and organizing such a large event.
We all cannot recommend this house enough, and thank Lynda and Marshall a thousand times over.
Beautiful, clean and more-than-memorable!!!

Everything on this site does not do the house justice. Lynda and Marshall were incredibly helpful and accommodating and made sure we were comfortable for the duration of our trip. The house was perfect, the views were better than any photo could offer, the rooms were clean and the air conditioning made for great nights sleep after long days out in the sun. It was very nice that The Preserve was in a gated area so you felt safe and comfortable when you were running around, leaving the doors unlocked.

For such a large house, the kitchen was great and there was enough seating for large families! One of my favorite parts of the stay was the private beach. Lynda and Marshall have everything you need so you never have to carry chairs - it's all down there for you! They have a tent, chairs and even kayaks.

If you can rent this place out, do it immediately. It was really hard to leave because we had such an amazing trip, it felt like a dream. Thank you Marshall and Lynda for your help and allowing us to stay at your beautiful home!

A Dream come true for a family of 15

  • 5 of 5
It was a vacation of a life time. Siren's Song lived up to and surpassed our expectations and we had very high expectations. It was like living in a dream. The views and the sunsets were spectacular. Sandy Bay Beach was so gorgeous that we sat there each day and couldn't believe that we had the whole beach to ourselves. The kayaks, chairs, snorkel gear, and paddle boards were ready for us to use. The grandkids loved, love, loved the big waves. They did a lot of fishing too. It was misting when we got off the plane and for the rest of the week we had sunshine. Who wouldn't love that pool? All of us, from 5 month old Hugo to 73 year old Grandpa were in it every day. Kylan, our first grader, learned to swim the length of the pool. Four year old Emily was proud of her cannonballs from the side of the pool. Oh, what to say about the beautiful villa…spacious, fabulous bedrooms with great views of the ocean, immaculate, open, yet warm and inviting. The big dining room table was just what we needed. The first night we arrived we hired Kat to do the cooking…that was a treat. We loved her food and she made enough to last for two days. We hired her again later in the week. We ate all six dozen of her chocolate chip cookies and her oatmeal raisin cookies were irresistible. She was very careful with our allergy issues. We were fortunate to have Pastor Whyte available for fixing things. He was a true gentleman and a pleasure to meet. We didn't hesitate to call the housekeeper, Heather, when we needed something. She was right there and willing to take care of us.
We are all living busy, stressful lives. Botany Bay with its 300 acres was just what we needed. We will always treasure our memories of Siren's Song.

Definitely the BEST!

  • 5 of 5
We all had a wonderful time at Siren's Song villa. We just loved the Preserve at Botany Bay. It was such a beautiful location and everything ran just perfect. We had the beach at Mermaids Chair to ourselves and were amazed by the awesome colorful corals and variety of tropical fish. There were several in our group that have travelled to some pretty nice places and each one of us said how Siren's Song was definitely the BEST!

Serene and peaceful with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5
This was our third family vacation at Sirens Song. We just love this wonderful villa.The facilities have been constantly updated and are in excellent repair. The location of Sirens Song is unbeatable, on a cliff within the Preserve at Botany Bay and less than a five minute stroll to the beach at Mermaids Chair, which we had to ourselves. This place is serene and peaceful. The views are spectacular. It truly is paradise. We'll be back.

Dream vacation- 5 star home

  • 5 of 5
What a fabulous vacation! We had a family reunion with 13 adults and 4 toddlers. Everything was arranged perfectly for our convenience from Pastor Wythe meeting us at the airport to showing us the area including the beach and kayak area. The beautiful house was perfect for accommodating our large group. The views were spectacular, the pool refreshing, and very relaxing. I highly recommend this 5 star home and would love to turn in the future.
