Overview

Southside Villa Rental Photos and Description

Large Main House plus apartment with flexible spaces overlooking the sea

Begun in 2005 and completed in the fall of 2012, Surewinds has been a labor of love. It is designed for carefree island living…… no worries, barefeet, open windows and gentle breezes. The architectural style is classic Caribbean, (think masonry construction, ceiling fans, and colonial stonework ), updated with tropical hardwoods, an open floor plan, contemporary finishes and expansive outdoor living spaces.

Surewinds, as its name implies, was sited to fully capture the cooling trade winds, which bathe the house in a continual ocean breeze. There is no greater luxury than living in an open air home where you can truly experience the sights and sounds of your natural surroundings. (Just in case the wind changes, the bedrooms are air conditioned.) From sunrise to sunset there are views to excite the eye and calm the senses.

Green Cay Plantation is on the south side of St. Thomas in Frenchman’s Bay Estate, centrally located between Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook. The house overlooks the beach at Bolongo Bay which is the home of the USVI Diving Club. There are no neighbors, no street lights and no traffic. Green Cay Plantation is a newly gated community featuring both luxury villas and year round island homes. The plantation roads are wide and safe for jogging, biking and kids at play. Surewinds is located at the end of a cul-de-sac so a stray car seldom passes by.

The four story, 4,500 sf layout of this home invites all sorts of possibilities. It is ideal for 4 couples, a large family seeking a separate in-law apartment, 2 family units, or a wedding party. With 4 ½ bathrooms, 2 ½ kitchens and sleeping space for up to 16 guests both privacy and convenience are well served. WE ALSO OFFER THE OPTION OF RENTING JUST THE MAIN HOUSE FOR GROUPS OF LESS THAN 10 GUESTS. THIS INCLUDES THE POOL AREA, ONLY THE LOWER LEVEL APARTMENT WOULD BE GATED OFF.

The Surewinds décor can be described as “put your feet up” casual. White slip covers are easily bleached. The watchword here is “clean and simple”. There is little clutter, so there’s less to worry about. The stainless modern kitchens are fully supplied for “real” cooking , and the electronics are state-of-the art (so you don’t get tooooo relaxed)! There is great space for entertaining, both indoor and out (as in a wedding). In-house catering by a noted island chef is available at an additional cost.

Main House, Main Floor: Open floor plan kitchen /dining / living room, powder room, laundry utility room, master suite (queen bed) w/ whirlpool tub and outdoor shower.

Main House, Pool Level: Bedroom 1 (queen bed + queen sofa bed), Bedroom 2 (queen bed + single bed + single futon), Den Bedroom 3 (trundle bed w/ 2 twins).

Apartment , Main Floor: Open floor plan kitchen / dining / living room (queen sofa bed)

Apartment , Lower Level: Oversized bedroom (queen bed + 2 twin beds (trundle)), Full bath

Finally here are some details to consider as you plan your vacation:

*This is a quiet, private setting. You will have to find your hustle and bustle elsewhere.

*We have done our best to make the house “child-safe” by gating the pool area, but nothing can replace parental supervision in a home that’s perched on a hill.

*Only the Main House / Main Floor is accessible without climbing at least a dozen stairs. There is a single stair at the front entrance, so wheelchair access is limited. If you are traveling with children, we suggest this house for Ages 3+, but we will let you be the judge.

*There are ceiling fans in every room, the 4 main bedrooms are air-conditioned. The breeze is fabulous!

* The 11’x 14’ pool is 9’ at the deep end, and about 3’ at the shallow end. It’s great for lounging, quick cool downs and some active pool play, but it’s NOT for diving or swimming laps (unless your laps are very short!).

About Sandra Wright

The Wright family has owned a vacation home in St. Thomas since 1985. As Connecticut Yankees, the climate first drew us to STT, but we have grown to love the island as our second home. Our son Jordan is the talented builder of this amazing home, which we hope will soon become a retirement home for us, and the vacation destination of choice for our children and grand children.

Although this is a new rental property for us, we have been renting our other home for 25 years, so we have great on-island support, and understand the needs of Caribbean vacationers.

Sandra Wright purchased this villa in 2012

Why Sandra Wright chose Southside

Besides the amazing architectural detail, Surewinds is somewhat unique in that the floor plan will adapt to groups of all sizes and configurations. Having the separate apartment with a second complete kitchen is a luxury you don't find in many island rentals.

What makes this villa unique

By opening Surewinds to the breeze you will take away a true island experience like no other. The 270 degree ocean view affords both sunrise and sunset panoramas that extend all the way to St. Croix. The westward view includes watching the majestic cruise ships and elegant yachts as they arrive and depart Charlotte Amalie harbor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us and our family. You have certainly thought of EVERY detail in Surewinds! We had all guests over one night from the Marriott for a BBQ (21 total) and everyone felt at home, comfortable and all wanted to come back again as a group in no more than 5 years. I will surely be the instigator of that for sure! We just absolutely loved Surewinds, felt at home and can't thank you enough for sharing!

The views are fabulous and the home is gorgeous. We hosted a family party here and the layout worked great. Our guests were taking pictures as soon as they arrived. The homeowners were kind to offer suggestions in our planning too. Easily accessible by car to nearby beaches and food, but located on a quiet and private road. Home is fully furnished and well maintained. The driveway is a bit too steep for some but was amusing. So happy we booked our week here and thank the homeowners for their lovely home!

Wonderful Villa

  • 4 of 5
We had 3 families stay in Surewinds for a week in St. Thomas and it was a wonderful house with great amenities and views. Plenty of space in a great location. I suggest this villa for any family or families looking for a luxury villa in St. Thomas.

We had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back!! We were in St. Thomas for our wedding and looked for a place where our entire family could stay together in one place. Surewinds was perfect!!! The views were amazing and the house was gorgeous! The owners are amazing!! They gave us wonderful recommendations, which we loved and went to Iggy's and Mim's multiple times while we were there.

Everything was perfect!!

Thank you again for everything!!

Perfect for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from St. Thomas and I'm already ready to go back. We had a wonderful memorable experience! Surewinds provided us the perfect home base for our large extended family. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. The pool was great. The kitchen was perfect with dinning space big enough for us all to eat together. The views were spectacular! I would only recommend bringing a sleeping mask if you don't want the sun to wake you bright and early every morning :). The owner was very helpful in our trip planning and super easy to work with. Thanks!

Private location, but close to everything!

  • 5 of 5
A spacious, beautiful island home. It accommodated our group of ten perfectly. It was great to be out on the island for the day and return to our private retreat. Spectacular views, especially watching the cruise ships leave at night. So easy to be there; by the time we had to leave we felt like we were leaving home! Magens Bay was our favorite beach; relatively quiet (except for Wednesdays, when there seem to be the most cruise ships!). Tree Limin' Zip Line tour was so much fun. Señor Frog's had the fried conch that my brother-in-law was looking for. We rented a regular car (no 4 wheel drives were available) and it was fine. We parked at the top of the driveway at the house!
