Overview

East End Villa Rental Photos and Description

5BR Oceanside sleeps 10 with the sound of the ocean in your ears

Casa Bougainvillea is located on Cabrita Point, a peninsula on the east end of St. Thomas. Our house is nestled among foliage and over two hundred bougainvillea plants.

Set seaside, and edged on its own rock and coral beach on turquoise Great Bay, this pristine and beautifully landscaped, private estate offers three air-conditioned bedrooms on the light and airy upper level, plus two more, completely air-conditioned, one-bedroom suites poolside -- on the ground level.

Enjoy the breathtaking views of Little St. James Island and Current Cut. Listen to the gentle surf; watch the spectacular yachts go by.

An electronic security gate marks the entry to spectacular Caribbean gardens with sculpture, an aqua freshwater pool, an open-air gazebo with a gas barbecue, a lily pond with waterfall, and fountains.

A spacious, elegant great room features cathedral ceilings, air-conditioning, and colorful artwork. It provides relaxed seating and entertainment areas -- and opens onto a covered verand

At Casa Bougainvillea you can enjoy alfresco dining, a cocktail, yacht-watching, or just relaxing with a good novel. The villa has five televisions and VCRs which all are serviced by cable.

This screened and fully air-conditioned villa is well-designed and serene. It's the perfect locale for a memorable vacation in the sun.

Follow a path through the gardens to the blue ocean's edge for easy access to wonderful snorkeling on live reefs -- just outside Casa Bougainvillea. Casa Bougainvillea is well located on the east end -- only minutes from the ferry to beautiful St. John. Grocery shopping is very convenient, as are some of the best restaurants on St. Thomas.

Casa Bougainvillea is wonderful for families or friends traveling together who each desire the privacy of their own accommodations.

Taxi service is available, but a rental car is advisable since Casa B is located on Cabrita Point. You'll can be met at the airport (20 minutes away) and shown to your villa, Casa-b.

The villa is only four minutes from the ferry to St. John. There are several restaurants in the small town of Red Hook and a grocery store - marina market. The Mahogany Run golf course is only a few minutes from Casa Bougainvillea. We suggest you make day trips to other beaches on St Thomas. It helps you appreciate how nice just sitting at Casa B can be.

Maid service can be provided mid-week. A damage deposit of $500 is required. A 10% VI hotel tax will be added to your rental rates.

Because Casa B i s located right on the water's edge the snorkelling is as good as anywhere. Guests have reported seeing spotted eagle rasys, turtles, octopus, squid and many varieties of fishes. There are also live coral and sea fans. Many times you will be able to see large starfish and large conch. The water's are protected so it is illegal to remove any sea life from the waters on the beach at Casa Bougainvillea. It is this policy that keeps the reef so vibrant and full of life. Thank You for behaving.

We have recently added a solar panel system to the villa to be more green and decrease your carbon footprint when you stay at Casa-b. Your help in conservation of electricity by turning off air-conditioning when not in use and conserving water usage as much as possible.

About Wendy or Larry

We have been travelling to St Thomas for many years. We decided to purchase Casa Bougainvillea so we could do family vacations and have friends visit at any time but also to available a wonderful home for anyone to bring their family and friends.

Wendy or Larry purchased this villa in 2005

Why Wendy or Larry chose East End

We purchased Casa Bougainvillea as a place we would eventually like to live. St Thomas is such a wonderfful island with all the fine dining and great beaches. There are also surprisingly lots of cultural activities to take advantage of. The water sports are refreshing and can be exhilerating and the best sailing in the world happens in the BVI, just a short hop from Red Hook. The community spirit we have enjoyed while on extended visits to St. Thomas and Casa-B have reassured us we have chosen wisely for our future home in paradise.

Without a doubt a fantastic holiday in a great villa with all the luxuries of home. Location wise was excellent for the snorkeling just in front of the villa - saw many fish, turtles and even a nurse shark. Short walk to sandy beaches. Also a good kick off spot for St. John. Villa is a few kilometers from the shops and some distance from town (this was a positive). Also dealing with the owner and his staff in St. Thomas could not have been better. Overall, good value for money and we would go back without question.

A beautiful home, clean and spacious. Great room and kitchen area perfect for family and friends to be together while separate living areas offer plenty of privacy. Pool deck, gazebo and beach offer perfectly relaxing and comfortable vacation time. Close to restaurants and shopping, too. Loved it and will be back

From the moment of arrival to this beautiful villa I felt all my stress leave me. The beautiful colors, gardens, pool accommodations and comfort was amazing. The relaxing atmosphere and the comforts of home all at your fingertips are just perfect. There is snorkeling right off the private little beach on the property and equipment you can use as well. The location has easy access to great restaurants and bars if you want. It's clean and bright. What more can one say about this beautiful villa. I will be back!

Casa Bougainvilla.......Paradise

From the moment my family and I arrived at he villa, we knew we were in paradise. From entering the beautiful gate, seeing the colorcul gardens with fountains and sculpters to the first walk down the path to the ocean, we knew this was going to be a great vacation. This house is very comfortable, bright and airy with a well equipped kitchen. The front porch, our favorite place to hangout, overlooks the ocean, gardens and pool. At night we would shut all the lights in the gardens and in the great room (of course with cocktails in hand) and star gaze, play games and laugh for hours. The property manager was so helpful with anything we needed. She arranged for a personal chef to make dinner for us and for massages around the pool. So wonderful and relaxing! The snorkling right off the beach is amazing, so many beautiful colorful fish,starfish, squid and coral. Sitting on the beach, sunning ourselves or watching the yachts or kayakers pass, to the catamarans dancing on the water, is all part of the paradise. The town of Red Hook is so close for shopping, dinners, or hanging out at "The Love Shack". The ferry to St. John is in Red Hook if you want to for a day trip or just a dinner. I will be doing my "ladies" trip this November and back to Casa B it is! Can't wait to return to paradise.

How exciting that you are making your 4th visit to casa bougainvillea. Wendy and I appreciate all the nice things you said in your review. Just want to let you know that casa-b is now more environmentally friendly with a solar system on the roof. Have a wonderful, relaxing visit and enjoy the gardens, the sunshine and the warm ocean.

Perfect Vacation in a Stunning Home!

  • 5 of 5
Best Vacation EVER!!

Words can't express what a great week my friends and I had during our stay at Casa Bougainvillea on St. Thomas. It was the time of my life and that's saying a lot because luxury travel is my business.

Casa Bougainvillea is an immaculate, beautifully-decorated waterfront villa filled with vibrant artwork. It's tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Red Hook (on the East End of St. Thomas), yet close enough to be there within minutes. The five bedroom villa is large and spacious, it worked perfectly for our group. The pool is always sparkling clean and the landscaping is filled with tropical flowers and sculptures.

Everyone who stayed at the villa and our friends who visited us were blown away by the home and the surroundings, which combined with your amazing property manager, Caroline, made for the best holiday we could have hoped for. Caroline became an important part of our stay and extended family, she stocked the villa with groceries for us and worked tirelessly to ensure that we never wanted for anything.

The coral beach was fantastic, quiet, peaceful, gorgeous. We had such great times there letting all our worries drift away with a Painkiller (a favorite island drink) in hand.

Thank you so much to everyone at Casa Bougainvillea who made our vacation on St. Thomas so memorable and carefree. We cannot wait to visit again!

Even better than first visit!!!

  • 5 of 5
I was dreaming about our family vacation at Casa B last year, and a few years ago (2006) and just looked it up to view the pictures, when I noticed that there is no updated review. This place is amazing, truly a gem in St Thomas. Our family of 10 first visited there in 2006, and made great family memories as 3 family members had all been diagnosed with cancer just within a few months of each other. It was most definitely a memory making trip. Cancer was just a word, and did not slow any of us down. We had the best time of our lives together as a family ,my parents, my brother and I, and all of our children. We left all "bad" things behind at home in the States. Upon returning home, surgeries and treatments were resumed. But I can thankfully report that 8 years later, all are cancer free!!!! So..... last year, we decided to make the same trip to the same house (Casa B) with a new family member, our daughter-in-law. We all, being a little skeptical, wondered if it could be as great a trip as we had had in 2006. And we were looking forward to Laura experiencing our "special" place. Well, let me say, we should have had no doubt. More memories were created, more fun, family times! We all talk about going back again and our next trip there. Daddy will be 80 in a couple of years, and we must come back then, if not before! Casa B and St Thomas are everything the pictures show, and more! We have found our little piece of "heaven" on earth when we visit here. Owners are great! Caroline is fabulous! Our fridge and pantry were stocked when we arrived, at our request. We just sent the list ahead, and she obliged! She met us at the airport, and led us there, as if we had forgotten from the years before. And maybe we had! She is truly a jewel. Cannot wait to go back!!!!!

Owner's Response: How great is is to be able to provide a place for families to gather from all parts of the country to celebrate themselves. I look forward to your future together and to dad's birthday. I suspect there might be an interim visit to casa-b.

Car: necessary

Casa Bougainvillea is located on the most activity laden of the US Virgins Islands. There are many restaurants within a short drive from Casa B. We provide mid-week maid service during your stay. The best thing I can say about Casa B is location, location, location. Because Casa B is located right on the water's edge there is easy access for snorkelling, swimming or just floating. The grocery stores are close by to get the things you need. Because Casa B is located off the beaten path, your privacy and quiet are maintained. Hope to hear from you soon.

Other Activities: kite surfing, relaxing, sunbathing, tanning
