Enjoy your relaxing vacation in the gated Mahogany Run community . This 3 bedroom villa provides beautiful down island views of the British Virgin Islands, Jost Van Dyke and Tortola as well as the U.S. Virgins', St John. Enjoy whale watching and cruise ship watching from your covered veranda with a cool breeze and your favorite beverage.
The villa is well equipped for the gourmet cook but there are many nearby restaurants. The entrance, master bedroom, kitchen, living area and pool are on the same level as parking which is ideal for those with limited mobility (one step up from sidewalk to entrance).
Ideally situated on the north oceanside of the island with good breezes, Carefree is within short driving distance of shopping in Charlotte Amalie, Yacht Haven Grand and Havensight Malls. Magens Bay is 5 minutes away just past St Thomas Dairy's Ice Cream Stand, the 'Udder Delight'. Red Hook (catch the ferry to St. John) and the East End restaurants and shopping are 20 minutes away.

This northeast side of St Thomas has one of the most beautiful ocean views we have ever seen. It looks out at Hans Lolick island (no buildings) as well as a down island view of the British Virgins, Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, and St John as well as uninhabited Cays of both the US and British Virgins. Being in a gated community, Mahogany Run with a golf course and two very good restaurants was a plus. Convenience to Magen's Bay, Red Hook Ferry and Charlotte Amalie for shopping helped too.
Our home has three major advantages over comparable luxury villas on St Thomas.
1) It is almost all windows with screens so the views and breezes are emphasized.
2) The entrance to the house is on the driveway level so you do not have to carry luggage and groceries up or down multiple filghts of stairs as you do at most villas on the hillsides.
3) the house is kept very clean, and in good repair.
This is a great place to relax, kick back and watch the cruise ships, sail boats and whales, or to take advantage of the many activities on St Thomas: Day sails, duty free shopping, great beaches (Magen's Bay), Mountain Top Views with a banana daiquiri, Aquarium, beach bars, elegant dining, snorkeling, jet skis and other water activities. Magens bay Beach is 5 minutes away and is one of the best beaches in the world for both adults and kids..
Because of our regular and new renters that have treated our house responsibly like their own home, our villa remains very economically priced compared to other villas on the island. It has many amenities and is well stocked with staples.
We have vacationed in the Virgin Islands since 1980. While all of the Virgin Islands have their strengths, we finally bought property on St Thomas because of all the activities, resources, conveniences, the view from the property we purchased in 1996 and the wonderful people we met.
This property is in the gated community of Mahogany Run on the north (Atlantic) side of the island. There are always cool breezes from the trade winds on this side of the island even in summer, allowing us to build a home with a lot of windows to open while at the same time taking in the gorgeous down island view. It is in a peaceful setting and yet still close to the great water, shopping and dining opportunities St Thomas has to offer.
The main floor entrance is on the same level as the driveway so you do not have to lug suitcases and groceries up and down one to two flights of stairs which precede the entrance of many island villas. The well-equipped kitchen allows you to have as many economical meals in the villa as you want while at the same time there are two fine restaurants in the complex. You can just 'veg out' for you vacation or have a convenient respite after spending your day out and about the island or the waters of the Caribbean.
