|Minimum Stay||1 - 10 nights|
This unique luxury mansion in a prestigious neighborhood sits on over 2 acres on a scenic hilltop, overlooking spectacular views of Charlotte Amalie's harbor and of tropical sunsets.
An avenue of palms leads from the entrance through lush tropical gardens to the brick courtyard, carport, and into the spacious and very elegant Great Room. This large living area, furnished with plush, comfortable seating and accented with warm mahogany pieces, is the heart of Ventana. Just off the Great Room is the covered dining gallery and verandah set with a sofa, chairs and a hammock. The adjoining, just-remodeled kitchen features custom cabinetry, a Viking gas range and Sub Zero fridge, and also has a private area for wait staff, which doubles as an office area. A few steps from the Great Room take you to Ventana's upper level and to two bedroom/bath suites, both with air-conditioning, cable TV and marble baths.
A few steps down from the Great Room is the large king air-conditioned master suite complete with cable TV, a sofa bed, a generous marble bath with mirrored French doors, and its own private covered patio just outside. A few more steps from the master bath access the adjoining exercise room.
Walkways threaded through the gardens and lawn lead to the air-conditioned twin-bedroom suite, situated in a charming small poolside cabana separate from the main house - and to the brick patios and dramatic horizon pool, from which you can watch the cruise ships come and go by day, and enjoy the magic of twinkling lights of our harbor and town at night.
Ventana celebrates Caribbean style with its captivating views, superb gardens, restful colors and original artwork; villa aficionados will appreciate the drama of this vacation estate's perfect privacy in a gracious, old world setting - five stars!

Lovely villa with fabulous western views out across the water. Spent our whole vacation on the porch and pool deck. Gentle warm breezes made for perfect days and nights.
Great time with friends in beautiful scenic home.
We rented Ventana as a last minute place to stay on St Thomas when original plans were changed. Luxury Retreats was wonderful to work with. The villa was beautiful, and very spacious for everyone. We really enjoyed it! It also had a great location between town and Frenchman's beach!
The pictures don't do Ventana justice! A little pricey compared to other villas. when we arrived, it didn't meet our expectations, it EXCEEDED them! No A/C in the main room/kitchen because at night the cool breeze sufficed. It was a bit outdated, but in excellent condition. For antique-lovers, that was the best part! One downfall, and a MAJOR one at that:Limited water supply! starting with the first night, we couldn't shower for more than a minute before the water went out. The maintenance guy came, fixed the pressure pump, and luckily we stood by him as he did it in case it happened again because it did, EVERY SINGLE TIME. anytime someone showered, someone else had to stand in the laundry room, stabilizing the pressure. Third day in, another maintenance guy came by, same thing. In fact, he just told us to keep doing what we were doing! Indeed, it's a beautiful spiritual place, but they need to fix the water pumps, it turned our 10/10 rating experience into a 5/10. Not worth $10k
