LUXURY HOME WITH HARBOR, NEIGHBORING ISLANDS & TOWN VIEWS

Northside House Rental Photos and Description

4 Master Bdrm 5 Bath Luxury Home w Breathtaking Views

Located on a ridge 300 ft. above town, the newly built Outrigger House affords views of the mesmerizing Charlotte Amalie harbor with cruise ships, yachts, marine ports, downtown and the neighboring Water & Hassel islands' vistas.

Construction of Outrigger House began in 2012. A lot of thought and planning took place in the building process. Renowned Caribbean Architect, Michael Helm, & Interior Design Specialist, Twila Wilson, teamed up in this project to ensure that your stay is a pleasant & memorable one. Caribbean breezes will flow through the many open spaces throughout the property keeping the house at a comfortable cool temperature.

This property is replacing the former St. Thomas Archbishop's home which had a frail wood structure unable to withstand the passing of Hurricane Marilyn in 1995. Most of the stone walls located in the landscape remain untouched. The 1.05 acre property was bought by the current owners in 2008 & almost immediately native trees & flowers were planted in the perimeter where the main house used to be. Today, you will be able to enjoy some of the fruits from the old & new trees: seasonal mangoes (May through Sept), & all year round papayas, bananas & passion fruit among others.

The 4 post king size beds, night stands, kitchen cabinetry, tables, shelves, handrails, stairs, windows & door frames are made and crafted using local mahogany wood. Outdoor furniture is mostly teak, including a nicely cushioned Bali Bed with lots of pillows located in the Veranda.

There are 4 equal sized Master Bedrooms--1 of the Master Bedrooms is located on the ground floor with easy access (no steps) and the remaining 3 Master Bedrooms are located in the upper level. Everyone will have the best bedroom. There is also a powder room (toilet & wash bowl) conveniently located on the ground floor.

All 4 Master Bedrooms have wall mounted air conditioning units, have a King Size Bed, Wi-Fi, Wall mounted HDTV, In-suite bathroom (toilet & easy step in shower) with his & hers washbowls, spacious walk-in closets, private balcony with Harbor & Town vistas & i-Phone docking station with Digital Radio Alarm Clock.

A studio apartment with a Queen Size bed, kitchenette and bathroom (bathtub & toilet) is located below the House and is available for a Nanny, Chef or In-Laws!

The kitchen is fully equipped with a 6 burner Viking gas stove / oven, a French style refrigerator / freezer, dishwasher, espresso & regular coffee maker, microwave, toaster, blender & much more. It also has a breakfast nook with pool & harbor views as well as a wet bar (ice maker, wine cooler, wine rack & sink) which is also accessible from the outdoor Terrace & Pool areas.

Yes! There is an infinity edge solar heated pool from where you will enjoy Harbor and Town vistas as well as cruise ships' sunrise arrivals & sundown departures mimicking beautiful giant sized floating lit up birthday cakes. Wi-Fi is also available in the pool area.

The Family Room area is located in the upper level and equipped with a big screen HDTV with Satellite & Blu-Ray / DVD player.

The living room is a comfortable seating area with 25 ft. high ceilings good for lounging or leisure reading while listening to your favorite music playing on the Bose sound system with an i-Phone docking station to play your favorites and a CD player with a 50 page album stocked with a wide variety of music choices.

The dining room table accommodates 8 adults and there is also plenty of outside seating in the 75 ft. long veranda, including a picnic table. A list of private chefs and catering services are available from owners.

A big Terrace / Picnic area is perfect for weddings, birthdays & other celebrations & will lure those guests who enjoy Barbecuing. There is a Weber grill, a Picnic Table & several enchanting seating pockets......all nestled among the lush bamboo as well as the hibiscus and orchids' landscape. Wi-Fi is also available in the Terrace / Picnic area.

A 'M'Ocean' Studio is also available below the pool deck with its private bathroom (powder room) equipped with dumbbells, yoga mats & Pilates exercise balls, and, of course, with a large window facing the harbor.

And to ensure that you have uninterrupted electrical power, Outrigger House has its own Generator with an automatic transfer switch.

Outrigger House is located in an exclusive residential area and has its own private electronic gated entrance with a spacious parking area which can accommodate up to 6 cars.

Outrigger House's location provides easy & close access to historic downtown, waterfront, French Town, duty free shopping, beaches, golf course, sea aquarium, butterfly garden, water sports, Sky Ride, fine dining, ferry & seaplane docks & airport.

Come visit and be among the first guests to experience the comfortable, relaxing & luxurious ambiance at the Outrigger House!

Steve and Maria Lammens live in St. Thomas where Maria is a Dance & Fitness Instructor and Steve is President of a Construction Company. They have spent the last 1 1/2 years building the dream home in Paradise for the enjoyment of their guests.

Steve Lammens purchased this house in 2008

This property is special--the location has breathtaking vistas and it has a little history. Before the hurricanes of 1989 (Hugo) and 1995 (Marilyn), it was the Catholic Bishop's home. In 2008 Steve and Maria bought the property and it still has some of the old walkways through the lush trees on the 1+ acre property that were used for quiet moments.

You will enjoy the harbor, neighboring islands & town views from the seat in the corner of the pool and just about anywhere you are in the house. Also, watch for the parrots that fly around the property or walk through the fruit trees planted on the property to pick your limes, mangoes and 'carambolas' (star fruit). Or simply relax on one of several decks with terrific views and gentle breezes.

Outrigger House's proximity to all attractions (beaches, water sports, historic downtown, duty free shopping, fine dining, golf course, tree top canopy tours, sight seeing, ferry dock, airport & more) make it easy for guests to get around.

WEDDING AND STAY AT THE OUTRIGGER - 5 STARS!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough positive things about the Outrigger house. Not only does this property have just about the best view you will ever have, the owners(Steve and Maria) are the nicest people to work with.

Half of the property is open air with balconies everywhere. Don't worry about battling over bedrooms-every bedroom is amazing! Each bedroom includes a full bathroom(double sink AND balcony!). At night you have a beautiful view overlooking the downtown area and bay. Birds chirping and lights twinkling in the distance which gives you something to look at when it is dark out.

The house has all updated appliances. From BBQ pit, blow dryers in each bathroom, laundry room with steamer (much nicer than mine at home!), linen napkins and placemats for entertaining. Seriously everything we needed!

Not only did we stay here with 3 other couples for the week-we had our wedding here!!!
I was a wedding planner in my past life and my husband owns and events company. I agonized over the smallest of details when planning this wedding and there was absolutely NO NEED! The house itself needs very little. Guests walk up and all you hear is gasping over the house and view. From the open air bar that is built in to the infinite pool that lights up and overlooks the bay to the enormous balcony (also over looking the bay and twinkling lights) that easily fit our 40 guests. It could not be laid out more perfectly for an event. There was so much thought put into this floor plan. Tons of great lighting elements that are built in (hanging lights over the indoor/outdoor bar are so cool!). We were worried about guests being hot but there was a light breeze blowing throughout the night. Following the wedding we had some guests that wanted to keep the party going. There is a small local bar down the street called "Sibs" that was PERFECT. Everyone there is so nice and welcoming. Great bar food too!

I would recommend this house to anyone. Although-I think the guests that attended the wedding will try to scoop this up on they're next visit! We will 100% be back to this house. It really made one of the most memorable weeks of our life.

Safe Travels!

BEAUTIFUL VILLA FOR AN INTIMATE WEDDING!

  • 5 of 5
This villa was perfect for our entire immediate family to stay in for our wedding week in St Thomas!

We had our wedding on the property (Total of 8 people) on the outside space by the pool. With the beautiful view and flowers/plants everywhere we didn't really use too many decorations as the natural beauty of this place was PERFECT.

We hired a private chef to cook us dinner the night of our wedding and he prepped and cooked everything at the house! He LOVED this home and has lived on the island for several years and mentioned that this was by far the most beautiful home that he has ever worked in!

I recommend having a car if you are staying here all week (we had 3 cars so that we could all do our own adventures.

The owner and his wife are very accommodating and were able to help us with anything that we needed.

I wouldn't stay anywhere else on this island and we all plan to come back for 5 and 10 year anniversary at the same spot!

thanks so much for this dream wedding at the outrigger house!

AWESOME HOUSE WITH AN AWESOME SETUP!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do not do it justice. The house was perfect in every manor and the layout was absolutely wonderful. The house is set up to feel as though you are outside even when you are inside with a constant mountain breeze blowing over your shoulder. The views overlooking Charlotte Amalie are pristine and it was incredible having that scenery at every turn of the house and even when waking up in your own room. We were a total of 4 couples (8 people), who stayed for a total of 5 nights and each of us had our own king size bed, full bath (bathrooms were all custom to match accordingly with the style of each bedroom) and awesome island view. The beds along with the majority of furniture, including the kitchen cabinetry and bathroom counters, is handcrafted mahogany.

There is so much detail in this house that even by day six, I was still noticing things that I haven't noticed in days prior. Other features to note; great infinite pool with solar heating, propane outdoor grill that we used extensively, viking appliances in kitchen with skillet to cook up some entertaining breakfasts, great bar with automatic cover, plenty comfortable/decorative seating throughout the house, wine refrigerator, ice maker etc. etc.

This house was perfect in every way and would not consider renting another in St. Tommy's if we ever go back. Location in my opinion was perfect. Keep in mind that you will need a car if renting this house and even though it may be overwhelming at first (learning the lay of the land and driving on the left), it was well worth it. There are several restaurants located nearby, I recommend Mafolie which has a great view of downtown and decent food. Magan's bay was less than 15 minutes away and the Cost-U-Less (equivalent to Costco/BJ's, no membership needed).

A DESTINATION IN ITSELF

  • 5 of 5
The essence of a tropical villa. Indoor-outdoor space allowed us to enjoy the spectacular views and breezes from morning until night. Even better than the pictures. This house had everything we needed and was spotless. You can swim in the pool or lounge around the verandah while watching the boats sail in and out of the harbor. We honestly had a difficult time finding a place to eat or spend time that was nicer than the verandah at the Outrigger House. While the driving is a bit adventurous, we found our way around the island with our phone GPS system. Magen's Bay beach is only a short drive and very convenient (no long walks from the car to the beach). We enjoyed it so much, we spent most of our beach time there.

You can grab dinner at the Mafolie Hotel and Sibs, both close to the house. It's also easy to reach Charlotte Amalie. It's about a 30 minute drive to Red Hook to catch the ferry to St. John. There is plenty of room for 4 couples -- our family of 5 was really able to spread out. This had to be our most relaxing vacation in a long time. Our time at the Outrigger House really made our vacation.

DREAM VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Stop looking! This is the house you NEED to rent if you're staying in St. Thomas! It will exceed every expectation set in the pictures...and that's saying a lot! Our party consisted of 8 people ranging in age from 1-1/2 to 75 and it worked perfectly for everyone. It was immaculately clean, expertly designed and decorated, open & airy and yet somehow very cozy. We made sure to spend time in every nook & cranny of this house and if you don't, you just won't be experiencing all this place has to offer. The owners of this house really considered every detail. From the 4 equally sized master bedrooms/bathrooms, to the infinity pool with the luxurious lounge chairs to the bar surrounded by amazing tropical plants that opens into the kitchen, the design is absolutely incredible. Though it will be tough just to pull yourself away from the front patio overlooking the harbor. WOW! Curl up on the daybed, have lunch at the table or just grab some binoculars and watch the constant flow of boat traffic moving in and out of the island. It's just an amazingly relaxing place. We were also pleasantly surprised at how well stocked this house was. Every piece of cookware, barware, table setting, towels for bath & beach, accommodations for child if needed (playpen, high chair, etc.) were available. Everything we went looking for, we found, which really made our vacation stress free.

You definitely need to a rent a car if you're staying here as it is up on the side of the mountain. But it's a short 10-min. drive to town and various beaches. We quickly learned to navigate our way around to local restaurants, shopping and snorkeling spots. At the end of every day though, we were always eager to just get back to the house!

Our only critique is that the owners need to rename this the Outrigger "Villa" - House simply doesn't do it justice. We will return! Thank you, Steve & Maria, for this gem!

This property was unbelievable, it was much more then the photos depicted. The owners were very gracious and helpful. The place was immaculate. It was the most relaxing vacation that we have ever taken. All of the necessary items were supplied. We had a fantastic dinner at a restaurant called (13). We hope that we can reserve the home again for next year.
