STARGATE - UNIQUE VILLA, UNIQUE LOCATION ATOP PICARA POINT

Northside Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 6 Sleeps

This superb and luxurious home sits atop Picara Point in upscale Estate Peterborg, surrounded by 330-degree sweeping ocean views. Three levels, all beautifully detailed and furnished, offer wonderful panoramas. On Stargate's fully air-conditioned main floor is the Great Room with an impressive arched stone fireplace. Just outside is a sunny swimming pool overlooking heart-shaped Magens Bay.

The main level also offers a formal dining area, a gourmet kitchen with native stone and granite counters and wet bar, a powder room, and two air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suites.

French doors open from the Great Room and from the four-poster king bedroom to a spacious deck bordering the entire the Atlantic Ocean side of Stargate, providing spectacular down-island views - miles and miles of breathtaking sea vistas punctuated with islands in the distance.

A handcrafted mahogany spiral staircase leads to Stargate's upper level and the spacious, air-conditioned king master suite, offering a private balcony with a view of aqua Magens Bay. The staircase continues up to Stargate's observatory tower, equipped as a secluded office with a DSL + Wi-Fi connection for your laptop and a printer, and with wonderful views from Magens all the way around to the British Virgin Islands and St. John.

Below, A manual gate opens to a short driveway and to the villa's attached garage where you may park your rental car. Watch tropical sunsets from the pool, then after a leisurely dinner, move to the deck on Stargate's opposite side.

What a spot from which to stargaze or watch the twinkling lights of Tortola. Set atop a breezy ridge, Stargate offers luxurious romance and serene relaxation surrounded by inspiring vistas.

Spectacular, awe inspiring views

  • 5 of 5
We loved this villa and had a memorable vacation. The views are astounding--the rocky surf of the Atlantic on the one side,, windy and crashing waves; the calm of Megans Bay on the otherside. Small infinity pool is lovely and perfectly positioned for gorgeous sunsets. While we rented two of the bedrooms (minimum rental), we ended up choosing the downstairs suite instead of the master upstairs. It was cozier and closer to the main floor.

Stargate was excellent - the only thing I was add would be bicycles, kayaks, fly swatters and maybe screens for the windows.

Memories for a lifetime

  • 5 of 5
Went for my 40th Bday with 4 galpals to get away and relax on a girls only trip. Stargate was like two different houses. One side of the house had breezes all the time and ocean waves, the other side was hot with bayviews and sealife. House was perfect for our needs and just the right amount of privacy. Saw shooting stars, enjoyed late night dips in the pool & listened to music through the outdoor spkrs. Online pictures dont serve this property justice. Spectacular! Gorgeous home and perfect spot on the island. Driveway was perilous and after 2 days of trying to navigate it we parked at the bottom and got our workout! A few maintenence issues that were resolved on site. AC in the ocean bdrm not cool enough. (Circuit Brkr) Section of town lost power and generator turned on. Diesel smoke poured into house. Generator is in the garage and we were never told the garage code. Got code to open and was fine. Upper livngrm track light was not working but we made due.

Stargate's split personality was quite endearing to me.

We really enjoyed our island vacation on St. Thomas and Stargate was certainly a large part of the reason. There were some issues that came up that I eventually came to learn were simply part of the island experience. For example, the first morning we had no water. The water hose on the back deck had apparently been allowed to stay on after cleaning and had drained the water tank. We also had air conditioning problems when the generator kicked on after a power outage and both of these problems were handled promptly and efficiently by Jim McManus. Though, they were still inconvenient, they were dealt with as well as could be expected by him. I think the dual personality of Stargate would have to be my favorite characteristic of that particular house. One side had the Atlantic's rocky shore with crashing waves and the other the mostly calm waters of Magen's Bay. I honestly don't think the location could be improved upon.

We had a wonderful time and the villa was outstanding and so was the service. We did lose a couple of days trying to get in to St. Thomas but it was worth it.

Relaxing Retreat

  • 4 of 5
Villa was as described on the website. It was of above average quality with a few exceptions: The master bathroom shower had little to no pressure or hot water. Towards the end of our stay, my husband finally was able to tighten the showerhead which made the pressure better. The air cond unit in the master bedroom was very noisy which made it hard to sleep at night. The beds in all three rooms were on the hard side. Driveway was very hard to navigate. The positives were the awesome views from both decks/pool. Living areas were well decorated and comfortable. Location provided privacy and quiet. Benjamin and Marianne both provided excellent customer service and were wonderful to work with.
