Overview

Solberg Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)

Truly 5 star in every respect! Poised perfectly on a bluff overlooking Magen’s Bay Beach, this incredible villa presides majestically over one of the world’s most renowned beaches below.

From your first step through the floral wrought iron gates at the entrance to Villa Panorama, you are literally surrounded by tropical flowers and panoramic views of ocean, bay and beach. The views are mesmerizing. Below the villa is a pristine nature preserve that extends without interruption down to the beach. Everything about this villa is 5-star quality.You can take a virtual tour on our website.

The totally new kitchen with granite and onyx counters, solid cherry wood cabinets handmade in the US, and all new appliances, is breathtaking. The Great Room features a wall of glass affording sea views from every vantage point. Step out onto the largest of the many terraces and decks which grace the villa, and notice how the turquoise of the bay near the beach gradually gives way to the deep blue of the ocean beyond. Or simply take your first dip in the crystal clear oversized swimming pool (among the largest on the island). If you prefer, a few steps to a lower terrace and a full sized hot tub/spa awaits. When you return to the Great Room, you will notice that the opposite wall is glass allowing you to enjoy another outdoor terrace and garden setting of palms, Birds of Paradise and other exotica. You can enjoy this private setting, complete with a soothing garden fountain whether you chose to be indoors or out.

In a bold departure from the typical Caribbean villa, this modern paradise oozes elegance in every possible way. You will find oriental carpeting in every room of this villa. If you tire of the stunning ocean vistas, take a break with one of the villas’ state of the art flat screen TVs or stereo system. The villa has an excellent DVD library for our guests. Enjoy the fully stocked wet bar. For the Internet user, high speed internet access is available.

This villa’s kitchen is a gourmet cook’s delight with its size and supplies. The vast counters allow your family or guests to nibble on appetizers or help in the preparation of meals without ever getting in each other’s way. If you prefer outdoor cooking, the new barbecue grill is an easy alternative. Your al fresco dining experience can take place pool side or garden side depending upon the mood. Of course the villa also features a more formal dining room with crystal chandelier, mammoth baroque mirror, and Tuscan china cabinet.

The villa contains 4 spacious bedrooms, including 3 master suites. Each is fully air conditioned, has its own TV/DVD entertainment center, and a distinctive ocean view. Each has a spacious bathroom with marble or tiling throughout. The three master suites all have private decks for sipping morning coffee, star gazing, or private sunning. Each room has a luxurious oriental carpet, European linens, thick comforters, huge mirrors, ceiling fans, and large closets.

Let our guides escort you from the airport to this fabulous villa in a private, secluded, gated community. Our concierge will help you with restaurant reservations, boat trips, provisions, and any thing you need to make this the most spectacular vacation of your life.

About Jackie

My husband, David and I purchased this villa in 2007 and worked with an architect and creative contractor to completely renovate it. Each of our children has a favorite bedroomroom in the villa, which are all large enough to have their friends enjoy some of paradise with them. Our other home is outside Philadelphia, so we find both the summer as well as the winter in St Thomas to be devine by comparison to the cold and humidity. Owning this gorgeous home that catches the Caribbean trade winds has been a gift we love to share!

Jackie purchased this villa in 2007

Why Jackie chose Northside

We came to St Thomas the first time as a graduation gift for our two middle children. We all fell in love with the water, temperatures, vistas, local people, and the peace we all felt. I remember my husband saying:'I bet if we lived here we would age more slowly.' That was enough to get us to a real estate agent that day. The first house she brought us to was this one. She told us it had THE most fabulous view on the entire island. However, the house needed so much work and we were so apprehensive about undertaking such an effort so far away from home that we continued to have her show us properties for 3 more years! After looking at EVERY single piece of land and villa in the USVI, we finally agreed with her original statement. It is easier to gut the inside of a structure, add to it, improve it, and ship a container of furniture from the states than it is to recreate the spectacular views that Nature created on this spot! The end result was a fantastic villa located on the very best spot in the Caribbean (and trust me, we checked them ALL out).

What makes this villa unique

My husband has always been a sun lover with skin that tans and never burns. So people always laugh when I tell them I have to drag him kicking and screaming to the beach. Now the beach to which I am referrring is Magen's Bay (always listed on the Travel channel as one of the top 10 beaches because of its heart shape and over a mile of pure white sand and crystal clear water with no seaweed or rocks). So what is his problem?? He would much prefer to just sit on our pool deck and stare out at the panoramic views of Magen's Bay and the British Virgin Islands. Our property goes all the way down to the water with only trees between the villa and the water. With his iPod playing smooth jazz, a glass of wine, my cooking, and these vistas he is content not to move for literally weeks on end.

Most guests don't go to his extremes, but all have said their experience at our villa was truly the best vacation of their lives. The furnishings are warm yet elegant. The open floor plan allows a large group to still enjoy the same space. The bedrooms are uniquely decorated and very private. There are enough outdoor balconies, gardens, and decks that everyone can also get away for some peace and quiet whenever desired.

Stunning Property and Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

My family and I arrived in St. Thomas and before we even landed, the property manager Sharon had texted me and welcomed us to paradise. From meeting us at the car rental place to our escort to the property, it was clear that this was going to be a very special vacation.

When we arrived at the house, we were immediately struck by the attention to detail that the owners had given to make sure that the guests were not only comfortable, but pampered. The entire house was gone through by the property manager to make sure that we know how to use everything and to familiarize ourselves. The furnishings and accessories were first class. The home itself is stunning. Clean and well kept.

One of the neat things about the home is the fact that everybody who stays there must feel a kinship to the previous and future guests. If you have extra pantry items, you can leave for the next guest. There is a staple of condiments and items frequently used in the kitchen. We used some of what had been left by others, and we left some to be used by future guests.

Awe stayed for 12 days and were comfortable the entire time. While the drive to the villa appears daunting at first, Sharon assured us that we would know our way around the island quickly. She was right. We were able to navigate our way around in not time.

I would definitely recommend getting a rental car. Sharon was nice enough to lead us to a local grocery store for food and provisions.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who wants a great vacation with the best view on the island. I will be back.

Huge, luxurious, well equipped and perfect views!

  • 5 of 5

We planned our vacation to St. Thomas in May with a friend of ours and his family. We shortlisted Villa Panorama and another Villa overlooking Magens Bay. At the end we decided to go with Villa Panorama as it appealed to us a lot more based on the pictures, description and the reviews. Fortunately our expectations were met in every way and were happy to have picked this place for our getaway. If you have fewer than 8 guests, the owner may even give you a discount.

Right from the beginning Jackie had been excellent with her communication. The whole booking process was smooth and clear. Once we reached St. Thomas, we were received at the airport as indicated and taken to the Villa. The Villa was beautiful and exactly as described and shown on the website. Sharon walked us through the entire Villa and provided us all the info needed. She was quite friendly and helpful. The view of Magens Bay from the deck was absolutely gorgeous. There was a nice breeze almost all the time and hence it was comfortable enough to sit out even during the day when it was pretty hot. One great thing about the Villa was that every bedroom had its own full bath. The kitchen had everything that is needed and the bar was fully stocked. The great room, dining area and kitchen were all open concept and very spacious even for a large group. There were two little ones in the group and they had plenty of space indoors to run around and play. In spite of the heat, air conditioning in all the bedrooms was good and comfortable in the nights.

Overall, the Villa was everything we were expecting. We will definitely consider it anytime we go to St. Thomas again.

Owner's Response: It's those great trade winds that create the breeze on the "northside" of our island. Even on the warmest days, they create a cooling effect. Our house is positioned to catch those breezes almost every day of the year. With our double banks of sliding glass doors and huge fans, you were able to bring those breezes inside. Thanks for recognizing the new high efficiency European AC units that can cool all the rooms completely without a negative impact to our planet. (We upgraded to those right before you visited). We hope you and your lovely friends do come back again and again!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

WE just returned from an outstanding week at Villa Panorama. Words can't really describe accurately the view from the pool deck, the views from ALL the decks. We spent the majority of the week outside swimming in the pool overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Ocean. Sharon, the property manager, was always readily available with any questions we had and the property is very well maintained. I would highly recommend this property for anyone, couples and/or families, who want to get away from it all and relax in full blown luxury.

BEST VIEWS - BEST EVERYTHING HERE!

  • 5 of 5

Words can't describe the experience my wife and I just had after a week at Villa Panorama. Jackie the owner and her excellent property manager went above and beyond for this week. I surprised my wife for her birthday...and it was more than we both could have dreamed of.

The views. the pool, the jacuzzi, the furniture appointments, everything was TOP NOTCH.

We highly recommend using Freshfoodsvi.com to have a delivery to the Villa before you arrive...it is excellent quality, and competitive pricing compared to island shopping, they know the Villa location and property manager.

We also highly recommend the private Chef Romeo...who cooked my wife and I a spectacular meal during our stay...5 star chef and food!! Jackie and the property manager know how to get a hold of him, he was fantastic!

We also had a Vinyasa Yoga instructor come to the Villa twice early morning, to help us burn off some calories during our stay...she lives close to the Villa, and you can reach Chrystie at www.purebalancefitness.com - we had two one hour sessions on the pool deck, AMAZING...and a very good workout! I have learned I have no balance...or strength :-)

The house has all the amenities and MORE that you could ever need for your stay in Paradise. There is nowhere else to look if you have found this property...just BOOK IT!

I will happily provide further info to anyone with questions...we can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: The fact that Rich booked this as a complete surprise for his wife, had me a bit nervous. Then when he texted to say his wife burst into tears when they arrived and she was taken blindfolded to the pool deck, I was totally scared. But when he said she was never so happy in her life, I was glad we hit a home run for that birthday present! Happy to have you guys back soon!

Beautifully appointed home- gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared this home with two other couples and were perfectly comfortable.

Each had our own suite, the kitchen was fabulous and I loved how clean the place was. They thought of everything, down to pool floats and beach chairs! We arrived with our personal belongings and that was all we needed. Kitchen was pre-stocked with basics upon our arrival. Was nice to have coffee, fruit and oj the morning after our arrival.

The property management company was very easy to work with and very helpful. Beautiful tropical breezes kept us very comfortable (in August:)!

Can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: So glad the trade winds have gone back to their normal lovely state to keep everyone cool in August. It is shocking to everyone that it is so much cooler in ST Thomas than stateside in the summer! We welcome you back any time!

Lovely Villa Panorama!

  • 5 of 5

We had three couples down to St. Thomas for a wedding of a longtime friend. The Villa could not have been more perfect. Best tropical breezes on the island, and we were there in peak summer. Beautiful kitchen, bedrooms, pool, hot tub, etc. The Property Manager and Cleaning Staff were both excellent! Used "freshfoodsVI.com" for initial grocery stocking, which was great. Superb View of Magen's Bay, BVI, St. John, and the wonderful sunrises. Will rent this Villa again anytime we go to St Thomas in the future.
