Spirit on the Water offers you to enjoy your holiday in the main house of a secluded villa at the very end of a long drive on the northeast coast of St. Thomas with the WOW factor.
A private secluded walkway along the oceanfront hillside leads to one of the most beautiful infinity pools anywhere, two stunning bedroom suites and a huge living/dining room area, all with direct access to the pool deck. There is a complete indoor/outdoor kitchen, a barbecue pit, 1000 square feet of coral stone decking with palm trees growing through it, orchids, hummingbirds and complete tranquility.
Spirit on the Water offers you peace and tranquility, spectacular uninterrupted views down island to St. John and the British Virgin Islands, unequaled sunrises and star-filled night skies.
The Great Room opens on to the pool deck and is furnished with a large desk, flat screen TV with Dish Network, comfortable couches for lounging, a host of board games and DVDs, and a dining area with seating for 6 to 8. And all you see is the pool, the ocean and islands scattered in the distance.
The Dream Suite opens onto a large deck with lounge chairs overlooking the pool and the ocean. With it's en suite bathroom and a drop down shower with ocean views, a Duxianna queen bed with soft linens, a flat screen TV with Dish Network, a Sonos stereo system in your room along with a bookshelf full of great reads, you may never want to leave your suite.
The Blue Room opens onto a smaller deck adjoining the pool and looks out over the ocean. Besides the really comfortable queen bed there is a flat screen TV with a DVD player and additional seating. The bathroom for the Blue Room is just around the corner and has a skylight in the shower!
Both bedrooms are air-conditioned and have blackout curtains (neither of which get used very often because of the ocean breeze that comes from the East and the beauty that comes from the landscape - you probably won't want to block any of it out).
Spirit on the Water has it’s own full open kitchen just behind the great room that has everything you may need to prepare meals during your stay: refrigerator, freezer, stove and microwave. Unless of course you like to Barbeque, then you’ll just need to step out onto the deck and use the butane grill, of course! You will be happy to know that we have an automatic generator so should the electricity go out (a regular occurrence on island) we've got you covered. We also have a water filtering system that turns our collected rain water into the most delicious water ever so yes, you can drink the water! There is also wireless Internet throughout house.
The Villa is separated into two distinct residences. The owners house themselves in an upstairs wing far from the rental area at Spirit on the Water. There if you need them, but invisible if you don’t.
The glass tiled swimming pool is 32’ x 16’ with an infinity edge and it is a salt water pool that is solar heated most of the year. There is also an 8ft x 5ft. ledge that is only 18 inches deep for little people to play on. There are plenty of pool floats, outdoor speakers and orbit chairs to provide for your maximum enjoyment of the greatest pools you will find anywhere!!!!
This is truly a one of a kind place. It’s funky, it’s fun, it’s private and it’s full of spirit!
“What do you mean I can’t have fun all the time?”
I wouldn’t be who I am today if I followed all the rules. In fact, it’s because I refused to do what I was told that I’ve had this huge array of experiences. Ok, I wouldn’t say that living out of my car in Hawaii was the best idea I ever had but it sure made me appreciate life and know for sure what I didn’t want!
I like fresh air, warm turquoise water, and open spaces for miles. I like young people and old people, little people and big people as long as I can be who I am around them. I like relationships with no yelling, conversations that get me thinking, characters in books that I can imagine being and I like mashed potatoes and gravy no matter what time of day.
If I had a choice whether or not to stop on the side of the road to help rescue a dog or keep driving to get to an appointment on time, I’d be late for my appointment. But that is about the only thing that would make me late. I like keeping my word.
There has never been a time in my life when I wasn’t interested in what other people were thinking, where they were ‘coming from’, and where they were going as a result of all their experiences.
There also has never been a time in my life when I wasn’t looking at who I am, what I want, how I’m going to get it, what it’s going to look like when I do so I can share it with others.
So, that’s my life. Except for the part I left out about my 5 husbands, my 2 French kids or my job as a Chief Intuitive Officer all while moving over the years from Texas to California to Hawaii to Connecticut to Paris to New York City and finally in 2004 to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands where I live very happily today with my husband our three dogs, five cats and assortment of lizards, iguana’s and tree frogs. Who could ask for anything more?
Did I mention I like swimming in warm turquoise water?

We fell in love with the property the minute we saw it. Completely secluded at the end of a 1/4 mile drive in a private estate on the most beautiful stretch of coastline in St. Thomas, Spirit on the Water is also graced by the trade winds 12 months a year. We have transformed the house itself, adding the pool and decking and a second story Master suite to create our perfect home.
We expect you to have a blast. Period.
There will always be someone nearby to answer any of your questions about the music system, the animals that will be cared for by a caretaker (maybe even us) from the tree house that is just steps away from the main house. The dogs and cats can easily be kept out of the main house if that's a concern.... but you might just want to love them up also. Maps to and from all the popular island destinations are available and since we are so close to many of them (Red Hook, Megan's Bay (voted one of the top ten beaches in the world by Conde Naste') or our famous Mahogany Run Golf Course, you'll need them!
