VILLA OCEAN'S EDGE - ROMANTIC - POOL, OCEANFRONT, SANDY BEACH, GREAT SNORKELING!

East End Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 bath, sleeps 6 - 9, large Pool, A-C, Oceanfront with Sandy Beach

Walk through the Beveled Glass Front Door and the large azure Pool greets you...Look beyond the Pool to the Fantastic Ocean View and feel the gentle Caribbean breeze!! The Villa is fully Air Conditioned, but you may find the ever present breeze is more relaxing!! Look down from the Deck and you will see the Secluded, Private, Sandy Beach with easy access to great Snorkeling!!

Have coffee and watch the Indescribable Sunrise from the Pool Deck. Bring a picnic lunch down to the Beach and Snorkel the day away. Relax with a glass of wine and cool off with a dip in the pool. How Romantic!! Then have dinner on the deck and watch the stars come out...it is so clear you can see almost every star in the Milkyway!! The waves below your window will gently lull you to sleep....And then, do it all again Tomorrow!!

You cannot live any closer to the ocean than in Villa Ocean's Edge.

Peace and privacy (nobody can see you while you are in the pool), yet only minutes away from the exciting village of Red Hook (with its shops and restaurants) and major beach resorts such as Ritz-Carlton, The Elysian, Secret Harbor, Sugar Bay and the future Margarita Ville Resort (all beaches in St. Thomas have public access by law).

Our adult family of 5 stayed at Ocean's Edge in Feb and had a wonderful experience. Pictures only slightly capture the really fantastic views from this home and although it was in the mid 80s we never felt hot because there was a constant lovely breeze blowing off the water which you are almost on top of with unobstructed views. The pool is full size with a nice deep end for actual swimming and the real bonus was a flat screened tv where we could watch the Olympics from either in the pool or on the great pool deck. The house is really close to Red Hook and the grocery store was a 3 minute drive which made either eating in, getting carryout or dining out so easy. Beaches were a snap to get to and the Red Hook Ferry to St John's was so convenient for a fantastic day trip. Felt very safe and didn't ever feel the need for the security gate. We did rent 2 cars as we sometimes went in different directions and I would advise renting one if you want to dine outside of Red Hook (Havanna Blue was awesome)and explore all the great beaches , go zip lining up in the hills or charter a boat for a day like we did. The guys did some partying in Red Hook (Duffy's and Senior frogs to name a few)and cabbed it back to the house which again took minutes. There were just a couple of minor house issues during our 10 day stay which were immediately addressed by Matt. Also can't thank Matt enough for meeting my guys at 11:00 at night at the airport and bringing them safely to the house as the rental car place had closed for the evening. The owners of this home are really great. They aim to please and having them actually living near is such a plus. Thanks Manfred and family for a great vacation!

Villa Ocean's Edge was a great choice for my family of 7 to stay. Matt met us at the airport and immediately made us feel at ease. He gave my family a mini-tour as we drove to the villa. When we arrived we were very pleased. The layout of the villa gave everyone our space when we needed it but also plenty of togetherness. The view is just spectacular with the sound of the surf and the refreshing ocean breeze tempting us many days to just chill by the pool. Manfred was very attentive, checking to see if everything was okay and taking us to the local bulk grocery store so we could use his shopping card. My family praised me for finding this gem, and we are already planning to return. Thanks Manfred!

This is our second time as guests of the Manfred and Margie at the Villa Ocean's Edge. We were a party of six 'girls' that stayed a week in late April, and again we could not have made a better choice. The villa has had several very good upgrades, starting with the master suite's bathroom, which was good before but now is fantastic with a new double shower! The middle bedroom has been extended to include a closet and was very comfortable for two guests. The third bedroom, which received the most renovation, now includes a bathroom, small kitchenette and a sitting area, very nice. Everything was clean, functional and more than we expected like the new grill! Like all of the reviewers have said, the villa location is close to beaches, the town of Red Hook, the ferry and good restaurants. The view cannot be topped, and you almost want to stay here for your entire vacation. Most of all, I would highly recommend the villa, we have no complaints and hopefully, we will be guests next year, can't wait!

We just loved this house! The location was fantastic, very close to Red Hook and everything that we wanted to do. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed, made the stay a lot easier (here were days where we never even left the house!) Manfred (the owner) and his son were very sweet and extremely accommodating. The view was spectacular, if we stay in St. Thomas again, we would definitely stay here!

We stayed and Manfred and Margie's Villa Ocean's Edge between 3/28 and 4/4. Margie met us at the airport, which was VERY helpful for us as it was the first time we've been to the St. Thomas airport. We picked up our vehicle and followed her to the Villa. Word to the wise about driving on the Island. #1 - The posted speed limit is 35 MPH. Some, not all, locals drive faster than this when they can (it is hilly and very curvy). #2 - Some, not all, locals don't know how to operate their turn signals, which can be challenging when you are turning right at a stop sign and they are coming from the left side of the road. #3 - Some, not all, locals don't know what a stop light or stop sign is for. Now, of course the same can be said for some drivers stateside, but when your now driving on the left side of the road it becomes a bit more hazardous. Be a DEFENSIVE driver. Now on to the Villa. It was clean, and everything was in functioning order. The view from the main room, pool or master bedroom is FANTASTIC! Beds are comfortable. No problem with hot water in the bathrooms. Flat screens in each room and wireless works well. Kitchen well stocked with condiments, appliances and utensils. Never any problem with people noise, however, be aware that you are in a residential area (on the poorer side) and there are lots of roosters about. You know what a rooster does at 4:00 a.m?...well multiply that times three. They are loose all over so there's nothing that Manfred or Margie can do about it. If you are a light sleeper you'll want ear plugs, if you don't want to wake up that early. The location is very convenient to Red Hook where there are these great Restaurants (Pesce, ITP, Coco Blue, Fish Tails, Duffy's Love Shack). If you want a nice beach, go to the Elysian up the road. All beaches are public. The beach at the Villa is rocky. Its o.k. for snorkeling if it isn't windy. The Villa has a charm to it, and as I said it is fully functional (just call Manfred if it isn't and they take care of it right away), but don't expect it to be sparkling new. It could use a renovation. We had a big rainstorm and several rooms leaked in water. We put down towels in those areas and had a bit of a musty smell afterwards but it went away after a couple days. As I haven't been to another VRBO here, I can't say whether the nightly rate matched the value, but it seemed o.k. Overall enjoyable stay, and the Soeffing's are very nice. Recommended, but not perfect.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the many nice things this visitor had to say about us and our villa; but we respectfully disagree with some of his statements. Traffic in St. Thomas can be chaotic, but if you have ever driven a car in Italy or around the “Arc de Triomphe” in Paris you will find it quite tame. Wild flocks of chicken and bands of sheep & goats (and in the case of St. John: donkeys) run freely all over the island – not just in St. Thomas but all the Caribbean Islands; and they pay little attention to the average income of the neighborhoods they roam in. Most people feel that this adds to the rural & rustic character of the region. What this visitor called “the poorer side” is actually a vibrant middle class West-Indian neighborhood with a very vigilant neighborhood watch, which makes the villa a very safe place to be (when we were living there with our family we never bothered with the automatic gate or locking the front door); but by no means does our neighborhood compare to places on St. John, where Country & Western stars and other celebrities have built 20 million dollar mansions. Part of the charm of Villa Ocean’s Edge and the reason for the spectacular views is its proximity to the ocean. The waves of the Caribbean Sea practically (but not really) lap against the foundations of the villa creating a soothing sound that just lulls you to sleep at night. However, the salt spray and the corrosive power of the salt laden air create a constant maintenance challenge. This environment can make a brand new paint job appear aged within 3 to 4 months. During a driving tropical downpour a trickle of water can come in by the sliding glass doors – especially when the wind comes from a certain direction, but that is a rare occurrence. We just completed a remodel project, which besides our master suite created a junior master suite and an enlarged guest bedroom (3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms). Most people will agree that the villa (especially in this particular environment) is very well maintained
