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 with this thought in mind, what do we think a caribbean house should be ?? 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.
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 stunning! There is nothing like it in the world. In addition to this St Thomas is under the American flag and offers all of the protection we are accustomed to. The east end of the island is a much more relaxed atmosphere than Charlotte Amalie while still offering restaurants, shopping, easy access to 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.
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. Not all rentals have this equipment.
