THE BEACH HOUSE, ST. THOMAS, U. S. VIRGIN ISLANDS

Northside Villa Rental Photos and Description

Main House 2 Bedroom 2 And 1/2 Baths , Cottage 3 Bedrooms One Bath. Sleeps 10

The beach house is a unique property on st. Thomas. If privacy is what you're looking for the beach house is the place for you. This magnificent property is located 40 feet above sea level, on three acres with 700 feet of shoreline where a wooden stairway leads you to a small, completely secluded beach.

When calm the snorkeling and diving is some of the most pristine on the island. When the seas are rough you can enjoy a dip in the hot tub or bask in the warmth on the huge deck while you watch and enjoy the surf. Perfect oceanfront living!

The beach house is the perfect place to have your wedding, write a book, paint a seascape, or simply relax and enjoy an incredible, fun family vacation.

The beach house consists of a main house with two bedrooms and a quaint three bedroom detached cottage.

Proximity to fun things to do: to visit beautiful magen's bay is a 20 minute drive

To reach the east end of st. Thomas and the ferry boats to st. John it is about 30-35 minute drive.

Downtown shopping is only 15-20 minutes.

Weddings, parties, or large gatherings: the beach house will accommodate up to 50 people. All tables, flatware, china, dishes, and glassware for the event must be rented or provided by your caterer. We must have details of all plans well in advance of the event, including wedding personnel and/or catering persons who will be at the villa for your function. Guests will be held completely responsible for any damages, missing items, and will be charged if their caterer/chef does not complete a full clean-up of the property inside and outside, including removing all trash from the villa property.

Cancellations: if you cancel more than 45 days prior to your arrival date, 80% of your total deposit and advanced payment will be refunded to you and 20% will be retained as liquidation damages. If you cancel within 45 days of the arrival date, you will forfeit the full advance payment and damage/reservation deposit. Early departure does not warrant any refund of rent or deposit.

Annette and I honeymooned in St.Thomas in 2007 and found the Beach House in 2008. We have spent every anniversary since at the house, and were fortunate enough to be able to purchase the house from the past owner of over 35 years. The Beach House is truly a special place.

This home is one of very few on St. Thomas with it's own private, secluded beach. When we stay at the home ourselves, it's like we're stealing away on a short vacation ourselves.

Our teenagers were exhausted!

  • 5 of 5
This place wore our kids out, which is amazing! They hardly turned on the TV at all. Pictures just don't do justice to the beauty of this place. The beach was a lot larger than I imagined and the deck was just simply huge with lots of room for us all to move around. We snorkeled every day and the storage shed by the beach had a nice variety of masks and fins that fit nicely. The reef is beautiful and we saw stingrays, cuddle fish, grouper, lobsters, sea urchins and barracuda. (Remember not to wear jewelry in the water. The barracuda have poor vision and think it is food.) We fished in the evenings and caught a lot of fish right from the shore. The boys loved it!

The outdoor showers are lovely and secluded. The iguanas will steal your soap, so best to take it in when you are done. A four wheel vehicle is recommended and I would also recommend that you arrange to have a day's supply of food and drink purchased in advance so you can really enjoy your first day and not feel rushed to go shopping.

There was a meteor shower for two days when we were there and the deck was the perfect place to have a glass of wine and watch the shooting stars. It was wonderful!

The roads on the island are a bit intimidating at first but driving on the Left was not as hard as I thought it would be. About day 3.. I was enjoying the driving. Having GPS is extremely helpful navigating the roads and AT&T is the main cell carrier. I have Verizon and so I didn't have service.

Also helpful is to know when the cruise ships are in port as the popular areas tend to get quite busy on those days. Plan to visit Magen's Beach on a day when they are not in port.

If you are considering booking this place, you won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Joy,
Thanks for the great review. We fell in love with the Beach House on our first visit in 2008. The beach and the snorkeling are amazing and the stars at night are just incredible. Thanks again and we hope you will come back and visit again.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This house is absolutely amazing, it blew me away. It has amenities for people from all walks of life; scuba diving or snorkeling on a coral reef, sunbathing on a private beach, or just drinking beers watching the waves roll in on the deck. The house also has a boathouse on the beach which is stocked with all the things you could ask for on the beach; chairs, snorkeling gear, kayaks, and more. The house is secluded, giving you the chance to spend quality time with friends and family without interruption or unwanted noise from others. Even so it is still within reasonable driving distance of excellent restraints like 13 which is just up the street, or you can hop across the island to red hook for the night life.

INCREDIBLE Vacation Rental! Would love to stay there again!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at 'The Beach House' for a week long getaway and each and every one of us had a truly unforgettable stay there. The owners are extremely responsive and understanding from the very beginning.

We should add that some members of our party were worried about the validity of rentals listed on VRBO based on comments posted on various websites, but we can definitively say that the rental was as described. The description and photos of the house and property perfectly capture what you will experience there, so there is no need to be skeptical in the least.

Advantages: (where do i begin!)
(1) The private secluded beach has to be one of the BEST beaches we have ever been on. Minimal, if any, rocks on the beach, vibrant and thriving coral (perfect for snorkeling and taking underwater photos/videos!) just literally feet from the shoreline. Some of us even preferred our beach to some of the public beaches on the island that are more well-known and ranked amongst the top beaches in the world. The owners also maintain a well-stocked shed on the beach so you will not have to bring/rent aquatic equipment such as snorkels and kayaks, which is a huge plus. You can come and go to the beach whenever you like--no need to hop in a car or pay any entrance fees like the public beaches!

(2) The house is excellently maintained and perfect for the nine of us who stayed there. It has nearly everything you would want while on the island. The kitchen is well-stocked with all the appliances and tools you would ever need for cooking small or large meals for the whole group. The bedrooms accommodated us all comfortably without compromise.

Things to be aware of:
(1) This is more a comment about the island than anything, but the roads are as advertised, so you will definitely need an SUV with 4WD/AWD and high ground clearance, but the owners gave us a heads up so we weren't surprised upon arrival.
(2) There is only one true indoor shower (located conveniently in the main house). The other showers are located outdoors. This might seem like a disadvantage but it turned out to be just fine. You still have some privacy even while showering outdoors and you even have the advantage of 'being one with nature' if you use one of those showers.

Overall, we had a fantastic stay there and will definitely recommend this rental property to our friends and family! There are a number of island attractions, but don't be surprised if you spend your whole day on this magnificent property!

Owner's Response: Jacob,
Thanks for the wonderful review. The Beach House is all about "the beach" and the reef. We try to be very up front with everybody about the house and it really speaks for it's self.

Definitely a memorable experience!

  • 5 of 5
This house is so beautiful! It's completely secluded on the island and has amazing views. One of the best things about the house is the drive to it. It's located on a curvy, dirt road, making one feel like they are on safari while driving to it. It's a great place for both adventure people and those that prefer a more mellow vacation spot. There is a lot of wildlife nearby, including three iguanas that hang out in the trees by the deck! There's rocks to climb on and a reef to snorkel at nearby. If you are like me and aren't much of an outdoor adventure person then you'll love the house's back deck area. The deck holds a large dining table, which we ate all our meals at. It was the perfect way to enjoy the scenery, while staying in the shade! I would definitely recommend this house to people of all ages. The kids will love the wildlife and the private beach. While adults can enjoy the scenery and the peaceful atmosphere. I stayed at the house with several other girlfriends from college. The place was perfect in that there was plenty of space in all the rooms, something that is crucial when you are with a bunch of woman. There's also a lot of great shopping on the island. Overall, I will most certainly be returning again. The beach house definitely made the trip!

Wonderful vacation spot! Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5
This property is absolutely gorgeous. The beach house and guest house are both beautiful and make the stay very comfy and enjoyable. The house has a large porch overlooking the beach which was one of my favorite spots to relax, get some sun, and read a book! The beach is breathtaking and getting to snorkel around the coral reef was the icing on top of this great vacation! Whether looking for a place to vacation with family or a group of friends, The Beach House is an excellent choice!

Car: necessary

There are very few rentals on St. Thomas with their own beach and privacy. The Beach House is one of these. Part of the joy of the house is its privacy. We are one mile down a windy road that is part of the adventure of being there. While we are part of the Caret Bay neighborhood the house is nestled in the corner of its three acre property and you can neither see nor feel the presence of any of our neighbors.

Other Activities: Kayaking

Golf: Mahogany Run Golf Course is a beautiful 18 hole course in a spectacular setting.
