Private, quiet apartment/cottage nestled into the lush green hillside overlooking stunning Magen's Bay. Located in a gated community, this fully furnished 1 bedroom apartment includes a gourmet kitchen with professional cookware, a 12X14 bedroom and a tastefully decorated living room appointed with all local art. We supply beach towels, bags, cooler and snorkeling gear. We will also meet and greet you at the airport! Snack foods and basic amenities are stocked. Convenient location -- 15 minutes from airport and all attractions; 5 minutes to downtown Charlotte Amalie; ten minutes to Magen's Bay. We'll assist you with tours and excursions, if you like. All you need to do is bring your toothbrush!! Your hosts, Edward and Theresa, will make sure your stay here will be a memorable one.
When we purchased our home 18 yrs. ago, we were truly impressed not only with the awesome views, but with the quietness that the location could afford us. We then decided 7 yrs. ago to build an apartment/cottage next to our home and named it 'Hawks' View'. We do not have any close neighbors, and because we are located within a gated community and at the end of the road, there is no through traffic to interfere with the sounds of the hawks, the ocean and the gentle breezes whispering through the palm trees. We have grown to love the 'night sounds'...like a symphony. The apartment has its' own private entrance, spacious wrap-around deck and parking area. Your hosts Edward and Theresa live in their own home on the property and are always available to help you with anything that you would need to make your stay unforgettable. We feel that you will have selected one of the premiere spots on St. Thomas in which to stay, namely Hawks' View.
This perfectly-sized house upon a hill has everything you need for an island getaway. The view is first and foremost...perfect. The location is great,,secluded but close enough to everything..and not to be bothered by anyone. The bedroom is gorgeous and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is big and wide and open. And the living room is just right for lounging i the evening. The wrapparound balcony is great for hanging out and grilling dinner. My girlfriend i knew from the moment we arrived, it would be difficult leavng, not just St Thomas, but this house! We will definitely be returning someday
This was a great place to stay at for our honeymoon. Even though it is attached to the owners house you still have your own privacy and you may occasionally bump into Ed or Theresa.
The apartment is up the mountain and down a beautiful "driveway". You definitely have the feeling of an oasis. The place is super clean and very maintained. There is food that is left there from past renters so see what is there before you go to the store.
Ed and Theresa will meet you at the airport and take you to the place. We had a bit of an issue with our flight and with getting around but they were super helpful in our first few days. And we really appreciate their hospitality.
We would definitely come back and have told others about our place and our stay.
While on vacation you definitely need to visit a private beach about 1 1/2 to 2 miles from the house. Our favorite restaurants were Fat Turtle and Tap & Still but we mostly ate at home.
We had a wonderful getaway at Hawk's View. The pictures from the website do not lie- the view from the wrap around deck is truly astounding! We drove around the entire island and can honestly say we did not see a better view. The apartment itself is extremely private and spotlessly clean and well furnished. It is also very spacious and comfortable. We cooked many of our meals in and ate on the deck overlooking beautiful Magen's Bay. It is a short ten minute drive down to Magen's Bay beach where we spent part of almost every day. Ed and Theresa are such a nice couple and have thought of everything needed for a comfortable stay. We were very thankful to have Ed meet us at the airport and guide us to the apartment. If you are looking for a peaceful scenic vacation on Saint Thomas I don't believe you will do better than Hawk's View!
We spent a wonderful week at Hawks View.The place is beautiful, spotlessly clean and the view is magnificent. Ed and Theresa were very helpful and advised some nice places for dinner.
Maybe useful for somebody: exact location of the apartment (from our GPS) is: N 18.35582 W 64.93048

This was the perfect location for my husband and I and everything we were hoping for. The view of Magens' was beyond AMAZING! The apartment exceeded our expectations. Theresa and Ed were very helpful and they were also very conscience of our privacy. We are so happy we chose "Hawks Nest" over a hotel type setting. We hope to be back one day!
My husband and I recently stayed at Hawk's View for our honeymoon. I can't say enough how breathtaking the view from the balcony was! The apartment is clean, comfortable, nicely decorated and has everything you need to enjoy yourself on this beautiful island (snorkel gear, cooler and beach bags too!). The owners were very nice, helpful and full of advise when needed and gave us total privacy. We spent most days out exploring the different beaches and sites. It was nice to come back to the apartment and cook dinner on the nights we were to tired to get ready and head out to eat- basic spices and condiments are provided, which was great. Having done a few all-inclusive resort vacations in the past few years we think VRBO is the way to go. It was much more relaxing and quite and gave us the option to eat in or pack a cooler for the beach when we didn't feel like restaurant food. If you think you'll miss not having a pool, you have not experienced the AMAZING beaches of St.Thomas!
St. Thomas is centrally located to allow you to visit other islands, such as St. John, Tortola, Jost Van Dyke and Virgin Gorda; Each in its own, is an unforgettable trip. We have, here in St. Thomas, our own theatre group and fun local music featured at different venues. Whether you want to get 'out and about', or just mellow out, we have it all.
