East End Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

A unique property, Caribbean Castaway, located on the east end of St. Thomas where there is less rain, boasts a lush sprawling lawn on a large piece of property with direct water frontage. All bedrooms offer the most beautiful ocean front views on the island. , All bedrooms offer en suite bathrooms, their own balcony overlooking the infinity edge pool, the professionally landscaped sweeping grounds leading to the water's edge. Swaying palms, multi-colored flowers , and the resident iguanas are a treat for all. Thatch Cay, The British Virgin Islands and St. John are all within view. A quaint stone cottage for two, recreated from the designs of the sugar mills from the past is situated just 20 feet from the water's edge. Whether your plans include playing on the lawn, relaxing by the pool, swimming or snorkeling in the sparkling turquoise waters directly off of our property -it is all right here in your backyard!

This location is perfect. Lindquist Beach (the new Magens Bay) offers life guard supervision, and Sapphire Beach are both a five minute walk from the house.The town of Red Hook is just a five minute drive, where you will find delightful restaurants, live entertainment, groceries, shopping, boat rentals, marinas, dive expeditions etc. There you can also catch the ferry every hour to St. John and the British Virgin Islands.

Caribbean Castaway is a six bedroom, solar powered 'green' villa on a one acre water front piece of heaven. High vaulted natural Cypress ceilings, large glass windows and doors, comfortable interior furnishings create the perfect island atmosphere. Art work by local artists Guy Harvey, Elaine Estern and Jonna White are featured throughout the villa.

Joanne and I have traveled around the world and have always compared St Thomas to wherever we have been. We always said St Thomas was the most beautiful place in the world and in 2006 purchased a home there. We then took four years to create this home. The quality of products and craftsmanship of the house far exceeds any on the island. The landscaping was designed to enlighten the senses thru tropical plants with colorful flowers. The atmosphere is what we would expect a house and property in the caribbean to be. We hope you share in our creation. This house is a reflection of us. So by getting to know the house you get to know us.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

Sometimes in the winter you just want to get warm. Florida is very nice but can get cold. St Thomas offers a no risk warm vacation and is easily accessible from major airports. The water colors in St Thomas are like no other. In addition to this St Thomas is under the American flag. The east end of the island is a much more relaxed atmosphere than Charlotte Amalie while still offering easy access to restaurants, shopping, St John and the BVI 's via the passenger or car ferry. We are situated between Linquist Beach and Sapphire Beach, ( both just a five minute walk from the house), two of the most beautiful beaches in the world. After a two year search we found this property and fell in love. Simply because it is flat. Most properties in St Thomas are built on a cliff which limits the use of the villa to the house. We wanted a property which you can truly walk into the water from and have open space for a yard with grass. This offers our guests the ability to enjoy the plants and foliage of the islands.

Caribbean Castaway is one of the finest rental villas in St Thomas. It's a short walk to Sapphire Beach and Lindquist Beach. Best of all you can walk into the water straight from our property and the snorkeling is incredible! Our house has it all. A great place to just relax at the pool, swim/snorkel, soak up the sun or escape to your own balcony for some quiet R&R. All of the rooms are separate from the main house so you have the ability to escape the crowd if you like. Stone/brick/shell materials used as they were 200 years ago , the vaulted cypress ceiling, the stone shower, the kitchenette area all make the separate cottage very special. Did I mention that the cottage is 20 feet from the water's edge ??? The cottage is included in our rate for a six bedroom rental only. Cottage may be substituted as one of the bedrooms ( Five bedroom minimum) for a additional fee of $500. In the VI islands we lose electricity often. This house is equipped with a 60 KW generator which automatically starts when the electricity goes out. This should be part of your consideration when picking villas as not all rentals have this equipment. In addition all of the inside space is air conditioned. Some rentals only offer air conditioning for the bedrooms.

Amazing property, amazing views!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this villa while we were in St. Thomas for our destination wedding. We thought this would be a nice getaway for both of our families (who had never met each other before the trip) to get to know each other in a relaxed setting. The photos online looked amazing, but in person, the property was simply beautiful. From the start, the owner, Joanne, was very responsive and flexible. Her property manager gave us detailed information before we arrived and one of her staff met us when we landed and guided us to the house (super helpful!!). The location was perfect for us, 5 minutes from Red Hook (shops, restaurants and grocery store) and 5 minutes from Lindquist Beach where we had our wedding ceremony. The villa was spotless and a fruit basket and bottle of rum awaited us in the kitchen which was well-equipped; this was a relief because we cooked most of our meals. Joanne also allowed us to have a small meet-and-greet at the villa and all of our guests loved the home and wished they could have stayed there with us. The large outdoor patio, grill, stocked bar, and indoor/outdoor music system were perfect for hosting our gathering. Our families liked that the home was big enough that they could hang out wherever they wanted but the common areas felt homey enough for when we spent time together. Watching the sunset down at the jetty in the evenings was relaxing and we enjoyed the gardens as well. We tried a little snorkeling but there weren't enough goggles and the snorkels leaked water (maybe an upgrade is in order?). The only downside to our visit was that the infinity feature on the pool wasn't working. We were told that someone would come by during our stay to fix it but that didn't happen. The water level also ran low but the landscaper added water when he visited. We got to chatting with him and learned that the Bay Rum leaf (which is grown on the property), when broken, helps to ward off mosquitoes (great for those who don't like spraying on repellent)!! Regardless, we enjoyed the pool for several hours each day. All in all, we had an amazing time and we were definitely more relaxed on our wedding day than if we had stayed at a resort. I would do it all over again, without hesitation. Thank you, Joanne (and staff) for making our first trip to St. Thomas such an enjoyable experience!

None Better Than This!

  • 5 of 5
Magnificent property, beautifully equipped and maintained home, helpful villa managers available when needed....all added to a wonderful stay during a family wedding celebration. We snorkeled in St. Johns and around Great St. James Island, but the absolute best snorkeling was right here at Caribbean Castaway! The bedrooms are all separate from the main kitchen, living, and tv rooms—a convenient layout for nappers and late sleepers. Every bedroom is beautiful and spacious, has a great bathroom, and a wonderful view. Pure bliss. Loved the Bose sound system, large ice maker, two refrigerators, and great laundry……top of the line appliances ran so quietly that I’ve now put Bosch on my must have list! Biggi Dodson Catering prepared a terrific barbecue at the villa one evening----greatest fresh fish---and we had a great meal at Pesce’s in Red Hook. Would love to return to Caribbean Castaway anytime! It was very helpful to have a car, especially since we were running back and forth between the hotel and event venues. Driving on the left was easily learned----but leave lots of time for hills and curves----5 miles can be a 25 minute ride. A wonderful home on a wonderful island. Thank you!

The place was fantastic. More than even the owners told us. The care and cleanliness
of the Villa was wonderful. The landscaping and care was beyond our expectations.
We would highly recommend this location to anyone. We loved this place and will be back. The people who take care of the villa for the owners were outstanding and offered
all the help we needed. They added to the total package for this home.

Awesome property!!

  • 5 of 5
I normally don't write reviews, but this property deserves one. This is my 3rd time there. It was super bowl weekend and the crowd was gathered in front of the big screen in the Movie Theatre room with drinks in hand. (This room is awesome!!). It was 2 minutes before kick off! Suddenly...... boom!! The electricity went out on our end of the island. Bummer, we figured we were in the dark for the game....... but in less than 10 seconds...the generator automatically kicked in and ...presto...we were back up and running and never missed a beat. Meanwhile, our neighborhood was in the dark, and didn't get electricity till the end of the first quarter. We were feeling great that our house had power and the party went on uninterrupted. Even the commercial grade icemaker worked while power was out!! The generator powered EVERYTHING in the house automatically, with ease.

This house has is all! If you are looking for a great rental that can accommodate a large crowd with first class accommodations directly on the water, it doesn't get any better than this!! And its' close to Red Hook. I highly recommend it.

Secluded Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 5 fantasy days at the Caribbean Castaway with our children and grand children. We cannot express what a wonderful time we all had and how perfect the accommodations were for all of us with our various ages and interests. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and it was a dream fulfilled for all of us.
The owners have addressed every detail in the construction and furnishings of this palatial estate on the water.
The pool is an added treat to the clear waters that surround this perfect retreat. There is so much to do on the property that we did not have to leave nor did we want to leave at the end of our stay.
Thanks so much for building such an amazing place.
The pictures do not come close to the reality that is.
