Northside Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

A great alternative to high priced hotels and resorts, this affordable, cozy one bedroom apartment has a view of Magens Bay to die for.

Centrally located high up on the lush north side of St. Peter Mountain, the tropical breezes are refreshingly cooler here than at sea level, and you can enjoy a sundowner on your spacious deck while you wait for the moon to rise over the British Virgin Islands.

At night the musical songs of the tree frogs will complete the tropical ambiance, and in the morning the rising sun will greet yet another perfect day in paradise as you enjoy your coffee on the deck and search for Iguanas sunning themselves in the treetops below. Tropical flowers, such as Angel Trumpets, Gingers, Heliconias and Torches surround you, and bird watching here is superb, with Red Tailed hawks, Green Parrots, and Hummingbirds among others.

Of course, you are also just minutes away from world class shopping in colorful Charlotte Amalie, and at the doorstep of some of the finest beaches and snorkeling in the world. Go out exploring or just relax all day on a beach towel at Magens Bay, rated one of the top ten beaches in the world!

At the end of a long, full day of one of the best vacations you will ever have, you know that you have your own little hideaway to come home to on St. Peter Mountain, you can bathe in pure rainwater that has been heated by the sun by the new solar collector and melt into the queen-size bed. Come join us.

Superb Getaway - Fantastic Hosts!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a wonderful visit to St Thomas. The apartment, with your own private entrance, is INCREDIBLY CLEAN and new with a spacious modern bathroom, large bedroom (with HUGE closets) and fully equipped kitchen. The owners/hosts were fantastic - very friendly and super helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone who is picky about where they stay. The view is stunningly breathtaking!

What a view, what an island!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent 5 unbelievable days and nights in the Million Dollar View apartment and wanted to say that everything exceeded our expectation. Robert and Diane are the best hosts you can ask for and it was a great pleasure to meet and spend a little bit of time with them. Million Dollar View is not an exaggeration. We arrived at night and even with just the moon light the view was unbelievable. Words and photographs can not describe the view at sunset and sunrise. You have to see it for yourself! Even if I wanted to, I could not find a single bad thing to say about our vacation, the apartment and islands. Couple of thoughts: get a car. Everything is very close on St Thomas, but you would not want to walk -- roads are narrow and terrain is fairly rugged. Get a car with hardtop and I would recommend 4x4 if you are there during the rainy season -- roads are steep and can get interesting when the weather hits. Nothing dangerous, just feels more comfortable when you are in a solid car. Definitely consider going to St. John. There are car barges leaving every hour or so. Not cheap, but well worth it! Fantastic beaches, nature and St. John has a very different look and feel from St. Thomas, you'd want to see both!.
Again, just wanted to say that if you are looking for a super clean, quiet place with one of the most amazing views for two (or a single person), seriously consider Robert and Diane's place, you will not regret it. Do read other reviews, they give you a few pointers and will make your decision easier!

Million Dollar View - Exceptional Stay

  • 5 of 5
I have been to St. Thomas many times and love the views that the northside of the island provides of Megans Bay. You get all of this and more with Million Dollar View! The Studio apartment has more than what you need for a stay on island. The owners are very personable and very easy to share a glass of wine and conversation with since they live right up above. Although, this rental is situated in a way that you don't realize they are there. It is private, comfortable and cozy. Enough windows and doorway create a nice cross breeze even as I was there during a very hot week. The ceiling fans helped a few nights, coupled with the breeze, creating the ultimate caribbean atmosphere.
I cannot compliment the owners enough on how clean this rental was. It is a personal issue for me and it was spotless! Fully functional kitchen that only requires you to grab the groceries you will want for your stay. I was there for 11 nights and easily made my way through this kitchen for eight of those nights. Internet and Netflix were available as well as a nice selection of DVD's. Bathroom stocked well and even comes with a safe for your valuables.
I made the most use with the beach chairs, towels, cooler and snorkel gear that was provided. It made the long days I spent down at the beach day after day possible. Thank you for a great stay and I would definitely do it again!

Perfect Honeymoon Get Away

  • 5 of 5
“The Million Dollar View” lives up to its name with the absolutely stunning scenery overlooking Magens Bay. The apartment had everything above and beyond what we needed for our stay including snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach towels, and a cooler; making it easy to travel light. The apartment is very private and VERY clean. The entire property is surrounded with beautiful plants, flowers, and trees attracting hummingbirds and butterflies. At night we were able to sleep with the soothing sounds of frogs and a cool breeze.

The wonderful hosts, Bob and Diane, were so helpful with their suggestions and directions around the island. They were excellent with communication regarding payments and promptly returned our security deposit after our stay.

This was our second time visiting the USVI, so the steep, curvy, narrow roads were no surprise to us; it just takes a bit of time to get used to. 4 wheel drive was an excellent choice, allowing us to explore roads/beaches most vehicles are not able to access.

Thank you for everything Bob and Diane!

The perfect escape from..........

  • 5 of 5
After looking around, we chose St. Thomas for our first trip to the Caribbean. And for a place to stay, we chose Million Dollar View. What a fantastic choice.

The pros include the amazing view (as pictured), but also an immaculate kitchen, access to beach chairs and snorkeling equipment, and friendly conversations with Bob and Diane. Our hosts had a way of being incredibly friendly while permitting us the space needed to relax and enjoy some time away from everything. They were open to giving suggestions when asked, and helped us find our way as we navigated the island for the first time. As it turns out, they are centrally located to all of the spots we liked best (Magan's Bay, Charlotte Amalie, Sapphire Beach, etc.)

The one con would be the parking, which was street parking and was a bit tricky. But, we learned that in general driving in St. Thomas isn't for the faint of heart. Ultimately, the space across the street was always available. Adjustments in a new place are always necessary, and we figured out how to find our way in our rental car.

On a practical level, communications regarding payments and the return of our security deposit were handled efficiently and well.

If you like to cook, enjoy slow starts to the day, or look forward to evenings with a glass of wine and a book......it would be very hard to find a nicer spot.

Thank you, Bob and Diane.

Lives up to the billing and more!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a wonderful week in St. Thomas staying at the "Million Dollar View". The apartment was fantastic with all of the amenities listed in the VRBO listing, the best being the deck that overlooked magnificent Magens Bay and the Atlantic. It's a great place for a nightcap after a busy day on the beach or touring the islands. The owners are very accommodating and provided useful information on attractions, places to eat, shopping, and transportation route information. You will need a car which is easy to arrange at the airport and there is a slight adjustment period learning to drive on the left and negotiating the two lane mountain roads. It took us about a day to adjust, then it was clear sailing. The island is small enough so you don't need to drive more than a half and hour to get to the furthest location. We traveled to St. John from the Red Hook ferry dock, about 20 minutes from the apartment, and spent the day on Cinnamon Beach in the national park, a must see. Water Island is worth a look, especially if you are interested in a relaxing day on the beach with few distractions. We took the beach chairs that were available to us at the apartment over to the island on the ferry. There are two beach restaurant/bars on Honeymoon Beach which is just a short walk from the ferry dock. Very good local food can be had at Brooks Bar, which is only a 10 minute ride from the apartment and close to the beautiful Magens Bay Beach. Glayds' in Charlotte Amalie's downtown shopping area is another great place for local food. When visiting the downtown area, visit the St. Thomas Historical Trust and take the historical walking tour for a good overview of the rich history of the islands and their people.
