Solberg Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms-Sleeps 4

Located within the exclusive gated enclave of Caret Bay Villas, WHALE WATCH VILLA is situated on the unspoiled North Coast of St. Thomas and boasts spectacular ocean views looking out to the Virgin Passage and beyond. During winter months you may see migrating whales from the villas's expansive decks - and there's no extra charge for the glorious sunsets, beautiful starlit nights, and the gentle surf sounds and tropical breezes that will lull you to sleep at night. Quiet and sophisticated with one king bedroom and one queen bedroom, the villa offers maximum privacy and is a perfect retreat for one to two couples or a small family. Beautifully appointed, furnishings are stylish and modern and include thoughtful personal touches that add to the warmth and welcoming ambiance. The modern kitchen is fully equipped, and features granite counters and stainless steel appliances. Patio furnishings and a gas grill are provided for alfresco dining. We welcome you to visit our lovely island home because everyone deserves a little piece of Paradise!

Things to Do in St Thomas: If you're adventurous, you might want to take a 5-minute hike to nearby Caret Bay for snorkeling, surfing, swimming, or maybe a little fishing. More populated beaches such as world famous Magen's Bay, downtown Charlotte Amalie with it's fabulous restaurants and shopping, and fun tourist attractions are a short 15 minute drive of the villa. More outdoor adventures await a bit further afield on the island's East End. You can catch the ferry at Red Hook Terminal to visit historic St. John, or spend an afternoon exploring Coral World Marine Park, St. Thomas's amazing undersea aquarium. Great swimming and snorkeling can be found at Sugar Bay and Pineapple Beach on the East end with many options for recreational water sports nearby. Choose from activities such as scuba diving, parasailing, windsurfing, jet-ski rentals or day sail charters. After days filled with sun and fun, drive the short distance back to the serene verandas of Whale Watch Villa

Full food and liquor provisioning, catering, and personal Chef services are available through 'Fine Food Afloat and Ashore'.

About Tim Roberts, Property Manager

Our permanent home is located in Portland, Oregon, but we visit St. Thomas several times a year as our schedules allow. We have met so many amazing friends in the islands over the years and have had such great adventures that we just can't stop loving it and we hope you will too! KRISTIN AND HARLEY ROBERTS, OWNERS.

Tim Roberts, Property Manager purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Tim Roberts, Property Manager chose Northside

Prior to purchasing Whale Watch Villa we were regular yearly visitors to St. Thomas. Over the years we fell in love with the island, the people, and the lifestyle. When we found the villas at West Caret Bay we knew that was the place we wanted to be because of it's security, the amazing views, the privacy and quiet. We waited several months before a villa became available for sale and we purchased it immediately.

What makes this townhome unique

The Caret Bay Villas are quite different from most other private gated a condominium properties on the island. What makes it such a unique community are the amazing views, the privacy of each villa, the fact that each has its own private pool and each offers expansive decks for lounging, dining, or just enjoying a cocktail and watching the sunset. Each bedroom has a private deck as well. There are ocean views from every room in the villa. We have lovely neighbors who are helpful and friendly to our guests but are always respectful of their privacy. Caret Bay is a quiet lovely place, perfect for listening to the ocean waves hitting the rocks below and enjoying the beautiful island trade winds when not out exploring the beautiful island of St. Thomas or visiting the glorious beaches the island has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our time at Whale Watch Villa. Your home is so very comfortable and I can't imagine a nice place to spend 5 weeks. The views are gorgeous and there are great shops and restaurants so close by. Thanks again!

St Thomas, for now

35 days of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 35 wonderful days at Whale Watch while house-hunting on St Thomas. The villa was so comfortable, peaceful, quite and decorated beautifully. Though our stay was in the heart of summer, the fresh breeze kept the villa nice and cool. Even during the day, we rarely needed the A/C. We have two young girls that, like us, absolutely loved the villa. Our three year old actually learned to swim in the pool. We hated to have to leave.

Owner's Response: We were thrilled to host the "Coastie Movers" at Whale Watch and are so pleased that they loved it as much as we do! The villa is the perfect temporary place to stay for any couple or small family relocating to St. Thomas. Thanks for choosing Whale Watch, M& were wonderful guests! Best of luck to you as you settle into your new island home! Kristin & Harley

Beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here and would definitely stay again if we return to St. Thomas. The pictures of the villa don't do it justice. The views are incredible and everything was clean and well maintained. We traveled with another couple and really enjoyed being away from the busy tourist areas. You will definitely want to have a car but this location is close to some of the most beautiful beaches and there are several good restaurants in the area. Beds were comfortable and tons of windows and patio doors let in the ocean breezes and sounds of waves crashing. We never turned on the television but we did use the wi-fi which was nice to have because our cell phone provider (Verizon) didn't seem to have a presence on the island. Overall we had a fantastic vacation and were very glad we chose this property.

Great stay, wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here and while our stay was brief, it's certainly a few days we'll never forget. It's a beautiful villa, meticulously maintained, and it was very easy to work with everyone involved. Lizzy was fantastic and wonderfully welcoming. Her husband Jason is pretty terrific too. All in all, it was a fantastic stay and if we ever return to St. Thomas, we'd love to return to this rental! Good stuff! Thanks for everything!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the whalewatch villa. Unfortunately our stay was really too short to fully enjoy it. I would recommend at least a week stay. It truly is a beautiful place. The owner Kristen was great to work with as I've never done a vacation rental before. And scott was very helpful giving us some ideas of what to do and where to go. He even made dinner reservations for us our first night at a cute place called "Craig and Sally's".
