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.

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.

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!

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!

WOW what a great destination

We came to get away and our mission was accomplished. We brought the New Year in on the deck overlooking the ocean and under an amazing canopy of stars. It was just beautiful.

We got lucky on the weather and just had normal brief Caribbean showers the entire stay. The properrty was very comfortable and the little touches like snorkeling equipment at the beach were added benefits.

We had nine adults and it was recomended we get two vehicles. We thought we knew better and of course we didn't. The time estimates listed in the description are for the locals I guess. Nothing unreasonable to get to but be aware the Beachouse is on the North side of the island. And yes, you definitely need a Jeep product. Our Liberty was straining at times.

We had dinner at Thirteen one night and it was fabulous. The rest of our meals we prepared ourselves. The outdoor grill almost never cooled off I think.

By the end of our stay, it was tough to walk away and know how much we would miss this place.

We would highly recomend and now know why Steve and Annette had to make Dr. Don an offer he couldn't refuse.

Owner's Response: Jayo,
Glad your party had a nice had a nice time and thanks for the nice review. I forget sometimes when I tell people that it only takes 15 minutes to get to the house from the airport that I have been driving on the island for a few years and it may take them a little longer. I hope you will return in the future and you are right, the stars are incredible.

Wonderful and memorable

We came to the Beach House for an extended family week together in November, and all experiences exceeded expectations. Our group ranged in ages from 5-year olds through 40+ year olds to a 71 year old, and there was something wonderful for everyone. We chose the Beach House primarily because its separate dwellings and private beach would accommodate our group's varying needs for togetherness and separateness, with appropriate spaces for group meals and activities. The house itself was comfortably furnished, and the concierge who guided us there was very helpful and pleasant. Amalie Car Rental met us at the airport with excellent four wheel drive vehicles, which are highly recommended for the steep and curvy island roads, and they met us at the airport for their return.

There were unexpected surprises and delights:
We snorkeled and scuba-ed Coki Beach on St. Thomas and Trunk Bay on St. Johns, and the coral reef at the Beach House had as much beautiful sea life, if not more.
We brought our own snorkeling masks, fins, and snorkels but it was a very pleasant surprise to see how much good equipment was available at the shed on the beach, including life vests for the kids. The two sea kayaks were fun, too. The water was warm and inviting even in the rain.
Because there are no city lights nearby, the constellations in the night sky are distinct, identifiable, and simply magical.
Outdoor showers on the verandas, modestly hidden by giant philodendron leaves but still offering ocean views, are exceedingly pleasant in the balmy St. Thomas air.
Five kids fit beautifully into a hot tub.
The 83 steps from the cottage's upstairs bedrooms to the beach are sturdy, the handrails reassuring, and the trip punctuated by nice resting stop landings with great views, within earshot of those frolicking on the beach. Anyone in decent shape should be able to navigate them.
It took our family of city drivers a day to learn the turns going from the privacy of the Beach House to town, but our newly-gained knowledge was empowering and gave us a happy catch phrase, "Turn right at the bougainvillaea!" The 40+ year olds found the driving exhilarating, and I'm not sure where else you can have as much fun going 20 mph in a car.
The Beach House's setting on the beach, with palm trees leaning in toward glinting sapphire water along a strip of sugary sand, will make any of your photographs look pretty good! Your tan line, even in the winter, will prove the backgrounds were not faked.

The Beach House is Paradise

The pictures on the website are really great, but if you don't see this place in person you have no idea how beautiful it really is. If you are looking for a house with a private beach and a wonderful reef, (which, by the way, is alive with fish of all sorts), and just steps into the ocean, then this is the place for you.
We used the services of the lady that gets some groceries for you, it was recommended by the owner and is a great time saver. We came straight from the airport to the house. We got in the water the day we arrived!
You do need a vehicle with high ground clearance (Jeep from Amalie Cars, as recommended by the owner) to get in and out of the driveway. The driveway is challenging, but it is also gated for privacy. No one can get in that has not been invited!
I stayed in the King bedroom in the cottage, it has an attached ½ bath with an outdoor shower! I loved the outdoor shower...except, that my soap (Dove) disappeared after 2 days! I left it outside on the railing beside the shower; the first day it had some “teeth” marks, the 2nd day it was gone. The owners told me that Iguanas like soap! I found out that there are 3 Iguanas that live in the canopy of trees between the main house and the cottage. We saw them one day and I got some great pictures!
The reef is really amazing! I used a mask and snorkel from the boat house and even though I didn't get 15 feet from shore, I was amazed by the crystal clear water and all of the fish....everywhere you look there are fish hanging around. Some of my friends went scuba diving while we were there, they walked right into the water from the beach! They talked about how gorgeous it was scuba diving and took some really great pictures. I would highly recommend an underwater camera..you never know what will swim by. I also recommend wearing some water shoes.
We did venture out and about on the island some, and one thing you need to know, on St Thomas, you drive on the left side of the road! I am a “right side” of the road driver! My friends seemed to enjoy driving “on the wrong side of the road” so we went out a couple of times. We ate out at a place called “Thirteen”' good food and not too far away. We were told it was the closest bar!
Although, if you rent this house, you will probably want to stay at there and enjoy the beach as much as possible.
Absolutely a fantastic trip, worth every penny we spent to go! I will remember it for a long time!

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.
