A Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

If you’re reading reviews looking for the perfect place to stay on St. Thomas, then stop now and book Serendipity Villa! We were here for a week in March 2015 to celebrate our daughter’s destination wedding and to enjoy the USVI. The villa was spacious enough for our group of 17 with room for us to all be together or to gather in small groups in one of the many sitting areas inside and out. The villa is even more wonderful than the pictures! Words simply can’t describe the awesome views! Being on the north side of the island, we were treated to beautiful sunrises and cooling trade winds. Sitting outside in the evening was so relaxing! The layout of the villa with its three separate buildings is unique, and every bedroom has a wonderful view. The amenities at the villa were numerous - everything we needed for cooking the fish the guys caught, the grills outside, several dining tables inside and out, coolers to keep drinks in at the villa or to take to the beach, beach towels, comfortable seating throughout, and beautifully decorated. The beds were so comfortable, and it was nice to sleep with the balcony doors open listening to the waves. The pool area was great with comfortable lounge chairs. There was even an outdoor shower that was awesome at 8:00 in the morning in 70+ degree weather, when we had come from North Carolina where we had one of the coldest winters on record.

I can’t say enough about the hospitality of the owner Frances (Swazi) and her staff! She had everything ready for us, Josee’ who met us at the airport gave us so much information, the maid service mid-stay was great, and William was friendly although we didn’t need to call him for anything. From the first email to the last, with phone conversations in between, Frances answered all my questions and was always accessible.

One note of advice: you need to rent a 4-wheel drive vehicle because the roads are rough all over the island and the driveway to the villa is very steep. We rented a Jeep Wrangler (Discount Car Rental) and had no problems. Driving on the left however was a challenge! If you are looking for any type of catering, Laura and Cassandra of Passion Fruit Chefs are fabulous! We also enjoyed the Old Stone Farmhouse and Mahogany Grill, not far from the villa. Megan’s Bay is the closest beach, and it is beautiful. We definitely want to go back to St. Thomas and Serendipity Villa would be our first choice of where to stay!

Beautiful Villa! Gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with 17 family members and had a marvelous holiday! The 3 buildings are well equipped and arranged for family togetherness for 17 as well as couple and small family privacy. Amalie Car Rental provided excellent service. We prepared most meals in the villa. We brought meats, cheeses and favorite snack items from home. The Fruit Bowl and Cost U Less had fresh fruits, veggies, eggs and dairy. We kept the villa coolers full of ice from a local deli to keep beverages cold. We went to St. John on the ferry one day and to the British Virgins on a charter another day. Great fun! The beaches on St. Thomas were a favorite, too. We and our 4 daughters and families have been fortunate to travel many places in the world. We chose the perfect place to celebrate 50 years of love and family.

Paradise Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I had our Wedding in St. Thomas and rented Serendipity Villa for 4 nights of celebrating with our guests. From day one Frances provided us with outstanding service before, during and after the rental process. She is very quick to respond to any inquires you have via email. Her home is simply beautiful and all of our guests where blown away by the amazing view they each had from their private rooms. Serendipity Villa is spacious and inviting, you will not want to leave. Her team was very accommodating when we arrived and the few minor maintenance issues we had (we were the first group to stay at the house after the month long off-season) were resolved almost immediately. If you want affordable luxury private villa accommodations in St. Thomas, look no more! Serendipity Villa is where it is at if you desire paradise perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the villa is wonderful. What a peaceful getaway place. It is a little difficult to get to, but the owner has arranged a guide for your initial approach, otherwise it just takes a while to get back and forth to places. But, you don't even need to leave the villa if you don't have to, it has everything that you need and the most beautiful views. Terrific for large families too.

Beautiful, relaxing home with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

From the first time I approached Frances about renting this Villa, she has been more than helpful !! This is a lovely home with plenty of room to have the entire family...you can have your space, and gather together when you want to.

The vistas are lovely and just make you unwind! We were in St. Thomas 2 years ago, and I tell you, that experience was nothing to compare with this year...thank you again Frances.

Also, I wouldn't feel right if I didn't mention Sherry (who met us at the airport), what a lovely, energetic and patient lady! William is the other "go to" person that we appreciated.

I would recommend this Villa to our friends and family!

Could not be happier!!

  • 5 of 5

My new wife and I stayed her with our family and friends, and also had our wedding reception here. It was perfect for a small wedding like ours and fulfilled every need we had. It was five minutes from Magen's Bay which was perfect for us. Waking up every morning with the sun coming up over the ocean wasn't a bad way to start the day either. It was really hard to not have a smile on your face while staying there. I would recommend getting a 4x4 vehicle to rent if you stay there. The driveway is very steep, and there are a lot of hills going to and from the villa. All in all it was an amazing experience. Cannot wait to come back.
