Welcome to our home away from home in Cabrita Point. Our home overlooks the Pillsbury Sound, the passage between St Thomas and St John, Jost Van Dyke and Tortola. From your private deck you have an incredible panoramic view of the crystal clear water of the Caribbean and a dozen islands great and small. As you dream your day away gazing out you will see the most elegant boats float by with the sound of waves crashing on the cliffs. The temperature is a perfect 85-90F cooled by the ever present trade winds.
We are a 10 minute walk or a three minute drive from the Ritz Carlton. The picturesque small harbor of Red Hook is located 3 miles away with many restaurants and entertainment options in addition to the ferry to St John. The best beaches on the East End are only minutes away; the beaches of the Ritz Carlton, Secret Harbor, and Sapphire. The world famous Magens Bay and the St John National Park are within easy reach, giving you an endless opportunity to explore.
Our home is over 1,200 sq ft and built on one floor with an amazing deck from which to enjoy the island views. The living area is surrounded by 2 full walls of glass. There is no place from where you cannot see the ocean and feel the breeze. Open the glass doors with full screening to lounge on the comfortable furniture. The newly updated kitchen is well equipped with granite counter tops and maple cabinetry and includes a fridge, electric cook top, microwave and a washer and dryer. The master bedroom has its own bath with a unique and private shower. Lie on the king size bed and watch the boats in the distance. The second bedroom has a shared bath and a king size bed. Both bedrooms are air conditioned and have ceiling fans.
We are located in one of the most romantic, secluded, private and at the same time diverse areas of St Thomas. We recommend you rent an SUV or jeep for your visit. We can pre-arrange lots of fun things for you to do. There are many activities within a short distance from the Villa to choose from: snorkeling, fishing, diving, kayaking, golfing and parasailing just to name a few. You can charter a boat to go deep sea fishing or to the BVI or island hopping. We can also set you up with the local market, give them your shopping list and they will have the villa stocked for you upon arrival!! You can enjoy a glass of chilled champagne immediately!
One day, we won't be able to share this place with you because we will have realized our dream of being there permanently. But we can't go yet...so you win! When we are not enjoying the USVI, we spend our time in the Shenandoah Mountains of Virginia with our kids and two crazy miniature schnauzers.
When you get there, you will understand immediately...Trust me, you will not want to leave the deck. The views, the sound of the waves crashing into the cliffs and the breeze are second to none. If you are looking for a place to relax and refresh, this is it!
During our househunting trips, we saw nearly 30 different properties. When we walked down the staircase and onto the deck in Cabrita Point, I took out my pen and wrote 'home' on the real estate flyer. I didn't even need to go inside - seriously.
Our place is located in the very popular East End of St. Thomas, near Red Hook. Red Hook boasts all of the ferries to the BVI and St. John and also has a lot of terrific shops and restaurants. American Yacht Harbor is also located in Red Hook and from there, you can charter numerous boat, dive and snorkeling trips. The Ritz Carlton is a 10 minute walk away, with their great beach, dining and spa. Cabrita Point itself is a GREAT place to walk about...we walk for an hour every morning that we are on island.
We are also very close (less than 3 miles) to Secret Harbor, the St. Thomas Yacht Club, the Elysian, Sapphire Beach, Lindquist Beach, Point Pleasant and Sugar Bay.
