|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
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, go down to the beach and snorkel the day away!!
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!!

Manfred Soeffing purchased this villa in 2006
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).
We very much enjoyed staying at the Oceans Edge villa! We had an extended family of 8 for Spring Break! Manfred was super accommodating and helpful if we needed anything! The house and ocean views were wonderful, our 17 & 18 yr old sons enjoyed the pool and snorkling at the beach below! We would return again and stay at this location which allowed easy access to Red Hook for dining options and taking ferry to St. John! Highly recommend property for this amazing getaway!
Our family of six had a very relaxing vacation at Manfred's house.
His son, Matthew picked us up from the airport and he was very patient while we were waiting at the Avis counter. They didn't have our minivan and for the first day they gave us two cars which was very inconvenient.
Matt brought us to a grocery store which was very helpful.
The villa is away from it all...we didn't hear any voices for a whole week long. Only wind and waves, awesome. The views were spectacular. We didn't use the beach because it seemed a little scary for our kids, but we knew beforehand that it'll be rocky and we hadn't planned on taking a bath there anyway. There are so many wonderful beaches on the island. We took the barge to St. John twice because we loved the National Park there, the trails and the more secluded beaches. Our kids did the Junior Ranger Program at the visitor center and made the oath for their badge - fun! We hiked and visited Annaberg Sugar Mill which was so interesting.
At the house we really appreciated the space, the beach towels, the lounge chairs, enough pots, pans, silverware etc. We even had some liquor and we made cocktails every night. The sky was amazing - so many stars.
The only thing that should be improved are the sliding doors because they cannot be used right now.
The climate on the island is super, around 81°F. We didn't have to use the AC at all because the breeze was so nice.
We've visited several Caribbean islands so far but this was our favorite. Beautiful beaches, great hills & views and historic sites.
Thanks so much to Manfred, Matthew & Margie (thanks for the coffee from Panama) for a wonderful time!
My husband and I just returned from a wonderful stay at Villa Ocean's Edge. We ventured to St Thomas for a beach wedding/honeymoon. Everything was just as beautiful and comfortable as in the pictures and we felt at home right away. Manfred and Matthew were wonderful and super helpful especially when we had a hitch with our wedding attire. They were super respectful of our privacy but available right away if we needed anything. The location of the villa was very convenient to local goodies and restaurants, even a fantastic little coffee spot right around the corner. Everything was very easy to get to but we also felt tucked away and safe in our little corner of the beautiful shore.
We first stayed at Villa Ocean’s Edge four years ago and had a wonderful time. We came back in June of this year and were pleasantly surprised by all the improvements the owners had made to the bedrooms and bathrooms. The villa worked extremely well for our group of six adults and three children (ages 4 to 12). It is amazing how peaceful it is at the villa in spite of being so close to Red Hook with all its bars, great restaurants, stores, dive shops, charter boat docks, and ferry terminals to the other islands. The only noises we ever heard at the house (besides the kids frolicking in the large pool) were the sound of the waves from the ocean landing on the beach below the villa and the occasional cry of a sea bird. Other great beaches are within a 5 minute drive, such as Secret Harbor, Elysian and Ritz-Carlton and more. The view of the ocean is simply overwhelming. The hosts are gracious and always ready to help with any issue. Thank you, Manfred and Matthew for your hospitality. We won’t wait as long this time before we return.
I'm writing this review on our last night in the villa. Sitting at the computer I can feel the cool ocean breeze and hear the waves crashing on the rocks below. We have spent 16 days in the villa and are so pleased we chose this as our home in St. Thomas.
The view is spectacular. We've loved sitting out by the pool and enjoying the amazing blue water, sunrise, and boats as they have floated by. Our kids loved the pool (me too) and enjoyed having pool toys here for their use. The bedrooms were roomy for our party of 7 and we got plenty of use from the kitchen. The coffee pot is programmable so coffee was ready for us each morning in time to watch the sun come up. The toaster oven was a great surprise too. Was easy to cook pizza for the kids without heating up the big oven.
The location was great. Being so close to Red Hook was very convenient. It is 5 minutes to the ferry to St. John. Lots of restaurants and a grocery store are also just minutes away. The villa was at the end of a road so there was very little car noise. In fact I never heard another person or animal (save for the birds) our entire stay.
The property is very kid friendly and worked out very well for our handicapped grandparent. The furnishings are comfortable and in good condition.
The owners were fantastic. They met us at the airport and helped us out the next morning in securing a rental car when our original reservation was not held. We were quite pleased with how close they were for any questions but they were respectful of our privacy unless we reached out to them.
It has been a wonderful vacation. Thank you to Manfred, Margie, & Matthew for letting us stay at your villa. Can't wait to come back!
Our group consisted of groups of friends from different locations that visited St. Thomas for a wedding at Secret Harbor Resort and we stayed at Villa Ocean's Edge for 6 nights. We had an amazing time and the pictures only slightly capture the sureal views the villa offers. From the very beginning, Manfred was great and Matthew was amazing, giving us a ride from the airport and small tour. The location of the villa is perfect for visiting Red Hook and Secret Harbor. We really enjoyed the pool and balcony, and its great to have the kitchen and entertainment seperate from the sleeping quarters. There were a few minor "wear and tear" type issues but nothing that wasnt understandable due to the restrictions on the island, the climate and the monolopy WAPA energy company has. The villa and especially Villa Ocean's Edge is the way to go while visiting st thomas and we hope to be able to do it again soon! Bring water shoes for the sharp rocks and coral below and you will be fine.
Ocean Front Villa with Private Beach, snorkel from shore. Close to Red Hook with Ferry to other Islands and many great Restaurants, Shopping, and Nightlife. Walk to Safari (bus) $2.00 to Charlotte Amalie with more great shopping and Restaurants!!
