Looking for the perfect family villa, close to beaches, water sports, the St. John ferry dock, and child-friendly too? Azula Vista may be just the home for you! Built on three levels with a very large pool, this villa has lots of room for everyone. A garden walkway brings you into a semi-covered lanai, separating Azula Vista's two pavilions on the main level. The L-shaped lanai has a bar with mini-fridge and cushioned sofas and chairs set along the shady covered verandah, with graceful arches framing a picture-perfect view of nearby Secret Harbor Resort and Beach. One pavilion houses a living area with a cathedral ceiling, glass slider walls on two sides, and through an archway, a dining alcove. The dining alcove seats 8 at the table, and counter stools with seating for two more by the handy pass-through to the kitchen.
The wonderfully-equipped gourmet kitchen features lots of counter space done in stylish granite, stainless steel appliances, and a broad array of small appliances, utensils and cookware, should you be in the mood to create a festive island meal. A handy desk with a phone and Wi-Fi and the laundry room share space with the kitchen. Across the lanai in Azula Vista's second main-level pavilion are two air-conditioned bedrooms with full en-suite baths with a powder room between them.
The master suite features a romantic four-poster king bed. Next door is a colorful suite with two twins (which can be converted to a king bed with your advance request). Exterior stairways on either side of Azula Vista take you to one of the villa's favorite spots for family fun in the sun (for small children's safety, access to the mid-level Garden Suites and the pool is gated off from these stairs). On Azula Vista's Garden Level are two more fully air-conditioned suites.
The spacious West Bedroom Suite is a large, fully air-conditioned apartment offering a separate living and dining area with two sofa beds (a twin and a queen-size), a full kitchen, and a king bedroom with full bath. Next to it is the East Studio Suite, another roomy air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suite with a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffeemaker.
These two Garden Level suites offer perfect and private accommodations for extended families and friends traveling together - you can get up as early or as late as you wish, fix yourselves breakfast or lunch in your suite, and take a dip in the pool or work on your tan whenever the mood strikes you. And below, the third level is heavenly - this level offers the pool and a covered outdoor entertainment area equipped with a gas grill, wet bar and mini-fridge and a second convenient powder room.
A few steps from the entertainment patio are Azula Vista's pride and joy: an expansive swimming pool, with a tiled sun deck fringed with palm trees the whole family will enjoy. The deck is completed with chaise lounges, an outdoor shower and another outdoor dining area on the sun deck. A built-in charcoal grill in the garden just off the pool deck is accessed through a gate, should you need a second grill.
Azula Vista is casual and comfortable home for all ages, but offers some special extras such as the wonderful kitchen, original island art throughout, a big selection of over 100 movies for all ages, and that fantastic pool! Its desirable East End location is very close to several excellent white sand beaches and water sports, from day sails and diving to parasailing, jet skiing and kayaking - just a few minutes' drive will get you to something new to do or see every day.
The sparkling ocean view fades as the sun sets, and memorable sunsets mark the end of each sun-filled day. Azula Vista (which means "blue view"), offers much to extended family and friends who are seeking quality time together in well-located, comfortable and well-equipped home.

There is only one concern I have for future guest with small children. Two of the bedrooms are on second level with private entrances and are not accessible from top main level. Our children are grown adults so it wasn't a problem. Felt very safe there. Fantastic view. Great entertaining Villa.
This is a great house! The location is perfect...home was very comfortable and clean. Was fully stocked with kitchenware. I didn't realize that the common area didn't have any air conditioning. ..it did get quite hot on sone days. The wifi didn't work well in the home.
When arriving at Azula Vista, it was truly breathtaking , the views and spacious lay out of this home. It worked perfect for our family! Makes us want to look at buying a home here in St Thomas...I cannot even think of one item that was not supplied there at the home that we needed. All utensils, linens, abd more were provided and was just a perfect location and place for us to vacation. Close to Secret harbor beach- we walked this every day, a hill to walk coming back, but nothing major.....so i would recommend for anyone that is able to walk, to do so to save on taxi/cab fare
We stayed with our two teenagers 14 and 18 the first week in July. The view is awesome. Coffee in the morning on the veranda can't be beat. We were so busy we hardly used the kitchen or the pool. Did St John, Tortola, Virgin Gorda, all in one week. I must say there are plenty of great restaurants in Red Hook. The ferry to St John and Tortola BVI are only 5 minutes from Azula Vista! The house is very well appointed. We only used the two bedrooms on the main level since it was just 4 of us. I felt very safe and it was extremely quiet. Here are my top ten things we did that week
1) Highly recommend Pirates Penny day charter to Virgin Gorda, the Baths. Had lunch at Cooper Island, great Snorkeling at Norman Island. Captain Galen and first mate Carey were AWESOME!
2) Day in St John. Waverunners at the Westin will take you on a great tour. Lunch at Woodys (best burgers) and snorkeling at Trunk Bay.
3) Swim with Dolphins in Tortola. Super experience. book the 10AM tour before crui
The house was well laid out with three areas for our family. It worked well. The pool was well apart from the living areas which worked well. Our youngest grandchild could not swim so it was good for the pool to be one level down. There were several maintenance issues that will be mentioned later.
