Please make sure to look at the map below. I have marked points of interest and have listed how close they are to the villa. You can also click on the letters and a description will come up on the point of interest.

COMMON QUESTIONS:

1. How many beds are there?

Answer: 3 queens, 3 twins, 1 full size crib, 2 pack and plays. If you have more than 9 you can bring blow up mattresses if you would like and there are large cushions on the outside lounge chairs that can be brought in for little ones to sleep on also.

2. How Far is the Villa from the beach?

Answer: The villa is less than 15 minutes from many beaches. the closest beach is Magens Bay which is 3.6 miles and takes 11 minutes to get there. This is also ranked as one of the top 10 beaches in the world.

3. How far is the Villa from the airport?

Answer: The villa is 3.6 miles or 11 minutes from the airport.

4. Does my cell phone work.

Answer: As far as I know the only cell phone provider that does not consider the island in network is verizon. Also GPS does work for the main roads on St Thomas

5. How far is the Villa from Town?

Answer: The Villa is 2.9 miles or 9 minutes from town.

6. Do you need a rental car?

Answer: I would definitely recommend one. You can pick them up at the airport and can just search online for 'car rental companies St Thomas' on your search engine. I have had guests not get one and employ a driver that comes with a 15 minute notice.

Answer: There is a small grocery store 3 minutes away just to fill in small items. There is a large grocery stores approximately 10 minutes away.

11. What is the weather like?

Answer: The house is at the highest point on the island so it is a little cooler. Average high is about 83 degrees and low at night is average about 70 degrees. Perfect.

12. Please notice the house manager will meet you at the airport when you arrive. You will follow her up to the house either in a rental car or taxi. Once at the villa she will show you everything about it and how everything works. She will also be available for your entire trip with any questions, problems etc... Also don't worry about bringing beach towels they will be provided at the house.

13. Do I need a passport?

Answer: No not to go to any of the US Virgin Islands but if you plan on doing a day boat trip to any of the British Virgin Islands you will need a passport.

FULL DESCRIPTION:

Blue Horizons Villa reflects the essence of paradise and dazzles the senses. It is located on the island of St. Thomas in the luxurious US Virgin Islands. The Villa is perched in a stunning fashion at the top of the highest mountain on St Thomas and is surrounded by lush tropical plantings and fruit trees. Blue Horizons Villa is just minutes from Magens Beach and many other beautiful white sand beaches are within 2 miles. This villa offers spectacular 300 degree panoramic views from St. John to the east, the beautiful Charlotte Amalie Harbor to the south and Puerto Rico to the west. At night the view lights up with a wonderful twinkling display of the harbor, town and cruise ships leaving port.

Blue Horizons Villa is a very private, friendly and spacious villa with cool ceramic tile and splashes of tropical color. The main level is comprised of a master suite and it's own bathroom. There are two other spacious bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds. The suite has its own bathroom and the other two upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom. From the main level you can walk directly out to a large covered gallery or to the wonderful pool for a refreshing dip. A staircase leads you down to the bottom level which contains a private queen bed suite with its own bathroom.

Blue Horizons Villa is located in one of the most discreet locations on the most developed and liveliest of the US Virgin Islands. St. Thomas Island is the recreational and commercial hub of the Virgin Island chain. Its capital Charlotte Amalie is a busy center of duty-free shopping, dining, pub crawling and resort hotels. While at Blue Horizons Villa you can enjoy the island in relative calm and take advantage of its many white sandy beaches and well-organized opportunities for sailing, swimming, scuba diving, windsurfing, kayaking and fishing.

The people who stay at Blue Horizons Villa enjoy the romance, the privacy and the serenity that our St. Thomas villa guaranties. From the Villa you will also have the opportunity to cast off and engage the big island and the countless vacation activities it offers. Blue Horizons Villa can make it possible for you to put lifestyle first and optimize your precious time in the tropics.

The house can comfortably sleep 9 guests in beds and more if you want to put kids on cushions or if you want to bring blow up mattresses.

About Louis Balady

My wife and I lived on the island for 4 years in the 90's and could never get it out of our blood so we decided to buy a house. We have two kids 9 and 14. Luckily we are able to get down to St Thomas for at least a month each year.

Louis Balady purchased this villa in 2007

Why Louis Balady chose Northside

I chose this location for my house for the incredible views, constant breeze and central location to everything.

What makes this villa unique

What we like the best is having group meals on the balcony with the cool breeze and great views. You cannot go to any restaurant in St Thomas and have nearly as good views as we have right from our decks. You truly have a 300 degree view from the balcony and the pool deck. Another bonus is the house is so high on the mountain the temperature is consistently 8-10 degrees cooler than down by the water. 66-70 at night and 74 to 83 during the day, could not ask for anything better.

I have also had many wedding/receptions at the house which lends itself to great pictures and there is enough seating for at least 20.

Great trip to St Thomas!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying at Blue Horizons - it served as a great home base for day trips on the water and to St Johns. The pool at the house was very refreshing and the view was phenomenal. Louis was very easy to work with and had some great suggestions of things to do.

Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group stay for a week at Blue Horizons Villa. It had plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. It was very well kept and had everything that we needed from the kitchen to pool toys. We enjoyed grilling out and swimming every day along with the incredible views right off the back of the house patio and the pool deck. The sunrises and sunsets were amazing! Every morning was coffee by the pool, then wine on the back patio at night. The location was great because you could get to Magens Bay and downtown easily. The owner gave us plenty of information to make us feel comfortable before we arrived. We recommend this and will stay here again!

Excellent Family Home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Blue Horizons Villa. The kids enjoyed the pool, and the adults soaked in the views. We were able to cook at home with the Barbecue and Great-Room style kitchen and enjoy our meals while listening to birds and watching the sunset. The location is ideal because it's a quick drive down the hill to Magens Bay, an idyllic beach and swimming area for kids. Thank you Louis, for such an amazing family getaway!

Excellent vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Marvelous home, with a million dollar view. excellent amenities, and spacious rooms. the covered porch with the views of Charlotte Amalie, the cruise ship harbor and the islands out to sea. the kitchen is very well appointed, and the availibity of on-site laundry mades this perfect for our family trip. The beaches on St. Thomas are truly some of the finest in the world, and none are too far away by car or taxi.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, plenty of towels, comfy beds, clean, beautiful views, everything was provided, all we needed was shampoo and our clothes. We will return later this year, and stay here every time, we had 8 people in our party and we never felt like we were cramped, we would recommend staying here to everyone.
