Beautiful, beachfront with water access, studio/condo, on the incomparable Magen's Bay, one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean. Villa Eau Claire, where the condo is located, is the closest occupied property to the main beach on Magen's Bay. The villa is a short climb up from a deck with a shower, located on a pocket beach that is entirely sandy. The deck is located one hundred yards from Little Magen's Beach, the largest pocket beach on Magen's Bay and the only beach on St. Thomas that permits nude or topless bathing. Of course, with a private deck, sheltered on both sides, many of the guests go topless right at the Villa.
This is one of the only three condos on Magen's Bay. Other condos are not directly on the water at all, and none of them have their own beach and deck.
The condo is large, about 500 sq ft, with another 250 sq ft of covered deck, where sunning in the afternoon is easy. The entire condo was renovated in 2007, with new furnishings and art work.
The television is served by Dish Network and offers all of HBO. There is a library of videos for your pleasure, and others can be added upon request.
The bathroom has a double sink and vanity, with a shower. The sink stands were hand made to fit the location.
There is a very functional kitchenette for food preparation, including a microwave, sink, stove top, and all of the appropriate utensils and appliances. There is a refrigerator for cold storage.
The unit is air-conditioned, but the air-conditioning is only really needed in late July to the end of September. Otherwise, it is more pleasant to have the three large fans on and leave the sliding doors open for the breeze and to hear the waves at night.
The studio/condo opens out, to walk up to the car or down to the beach, and the villa is equipped with a utility room with a washer and drying.
Villa Eau Claire is a luxury, high end villa, with everything less than two years old.
The location is unique; meaning that nothing else is like it on Magens' Bay. The unit is extremely quiet, very private, and romantic.
I wanted to say Thank You for a beautiful stay. Julia was wonderful and very accommodating. Your place was excellent making it easy not to leave property. Just sitting and watching the cranes fly and waves come in and out was what we needed after a very stressful year.
We hopefully will come back renting the larger place in future.
Well, again thank you again and a very Happy New Year to you.
Northside, Magens Bay; on Beach, 20 minutes from airport. Villa Eau Claire is one half mile through the water to the main beach at Magen's Bay, two miles to golf, one and a half miles from beautiful Pecora Point, 20 minutes to downtown Charlotte Amalie, 15 minutes to East End ferry to St. John. The movie theaters are 15 minutes away, there are good restaurants within five minutes by car; and the shopping is about 15 minutes away for food and other things.
Other Activities: Villa Eau Claire is the only condo on Magen Bay, with its own sandy beach. The Bay is shallow and sandy bottomed, so our guests can either walk to the main beach (ten minutes) or walk down the shore toward the point. The water is clear, the bottom sandy, and virtually no waves most of the year. The road on which we are located is the main walker and runner road on St. Thomas, used by the locals. We are exactly 1.5 miles from Pecora Point to the North; one mile to the turnoff, and 1.5 miles to the main beach.
