Villa Eau Claire is a unique property, behind a gate and fence, and sitting just over Magen Bay, with its own pocket beach, private deck with shower, and access to Magen's Bay, one of the most beautiful bodies of water anywhere. The property has four condo rentals. This condo is 1000 sq feet of interior space and has an additional 350 sq feet of covered deck. The condo has a one bedroom, with a queen sized bed. The kitchen opens on the great room . The views from the decks extend from Magen's Bay Beach to the South, the entire Bay and the Mountain across the Bay, down to the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest. The sunsets are wonderful, and the house faces southwest. Emergency 27k generator present.The laundry room is on the ground floor. The access to its little beach is by the stairs. The apartment is all wireless.
Magen's Bay and Main Beach: Magen's Bay is a very special place; the largest and most beautiful beach in the U.S. Virgin Islands, about one mile long and 10 to 20 yards wide, with great picnic areas, and a small restaurant that serves among the best hamburgers and pizza on St. Thomas. Magen's Bay gets its unusual character because the prevailing easterlies blow from the beach outward, creating a tranquil body of water that covers an entirely sand bottom bay, with no rip tides or major currents. This is a swimmer's paradise and my wife swims a mile and a half through calm water every morning. For small children, the abundance of sand and the absence of waves is wonderful, creating a perfect experience for children.
Private Deck on Pocket Beach: It is very unusual to have direct access to a private deck and beach on any of the islands. With Eau Claire, you walk down to a large private deck, with its own shower and seating, just a few steps above a pocket sandy beach, surrounded by rocks on both sides. The water is shallow, and you can walk out about twenty yards before it gets deeper, and the bottom is soft sand and almost no rocks and no coral at all. From our property, you can easily walk the 4 miles to the main beach (on the road) or your can walk a mile or more to the north along the shore or in the water. When you want to go back to your condo, the shower is there for you to clean off before going up to your apartment. This is the aspect that makes Villa Eau Claire so special -- privacy at the ocean.
Little Magen's Beach: One hundred yards to the left is the largest pocket beach on Magen's Bay, a 100 yard long beach that is the only place where nude or topless bathing is permitted on St. Thomas. The beach is used by only a few people at any one time, seldom more than 8 or 10, and it is considered the alternative lifestyle beach on St. Thomas. However, Eau Claire is separated from that beach by a rocky promontory, and it is perfectly comfortable for children of all ages.
