Escape To A World Of Unspoiled Splendor & Privacy :

Top 10 Reasons To Rent Villa Nicoletta:

1. Security: The villa is gated with remote key-less entry. You can't put a price on safety.

2. Generator: A 40KW generator powers you when the power goes down, and in St. Thomas that can be every day. Imagine the power going down just after you arrive and went food shopping? That's $400 down the drain. Imagine that happening 3 times in a week, $1200 worth of food, I've seen it happen.

3. Filtered Water: Did you know that all villa rentals catch their own rain water and store it in a cistern (a cement storage container)? That water just sits for months to years and all kinds of bacteria like e coli and others as well as heavy metals and cancer causing agents. Do you really want to drink unfiltered water? Or shower in unfiltered water? We have a whole house charcoal, sediment, UV Light and Reverse Osmosis system, simply the best!

4. Private Pool: Are you really going to come on vacation and not have a pool?

5. Hot Tub: Nothing beats a frozen drink in our 8-10 person hot tub!

6. Genuine Tiki Bar and Commercial Grade Outdoor Kitchen: Nothing, I mean nothing beats the fun you're going to have at the Tiki Bar! Cooking on a professional grill makes a huge difference as well. Read the reviews the Tiki Bar rocks!

7. Appliances: All stainless steel and up to date.

8. 3 computers and WiFi for your laptop with the fastest connection in St. Thomas. You want to upload all those great Facebook photos as you take them right?

9. Green: Villa Nicoletta uses the sun to power your hot water for all your showers, pool pump and home. Energy is 5 times the cost of a typical state so we do our best to be green.

10. Property Manager: Our property manager lives here. We meet you and escort you to the villa, recommend activities, places to dine etc.

Escape to a world of unspoiled splendor, privacy and serenity...

Somewhere in the world, there’s a place where stress isn't allowed and peace, serenity and genuine relaxation are the only demands of the day. If you could go there, you would thoroughly enjoy yourself. And when your time there was over, you’d want to stay longer. And when life finally did tear you away, coming back next year...well, it’d be a foregone conclusion.

There are not too many places in the world like this... but this is one of them.

It’s luxurious. It’s ultra-private.

Welcome to Villa Nicoletta.

Villa Nicoletta is a 4 bedroom luxury villa and an oasis of rest and rejuvenation in a land of unspoiled tranquility. Nestled atop a 70-foot cliff overlooking the north shore of the Island of St. Thomas and the aquamarine waters of Caret Bay, Villa Nicoletta offers some the finest accommodations in the Caribbean for those seeking a vacation of elegance, serenity and privacy. You’ll love how the sun blankets the landscape and water in shimmering brilliance by day and how the sky twinkles like billions of flawless diamonds at night. And one of the best parts about Villa Nicoletta is you've got a choice of front-row seats to see the show.

Not one, not two, but three decks/balconies offer breathtaking views of the awe-inspiring natural beauty. The biggest, located on the lower level, is a wraparound deck and features a completely private pool, outdoor kitchen, TIKI bar, T.V. and comfy outdoor furniture where you can sit and enjoy a cocktail as gentle bay breezes whisk away your worldly cares. A private extended balcony off the second-floor king master suite offers million-dollar views of St. John, the British Virgin Islands and Outer Brass Islands while one of the upper bedrooms has its own private extended deck with majestic views of palm trees and the ocean.

The bi-level, 3,300-square foot (including decks) Villa Nicoletta sleeps up to ten people in air-conditioned comfort and is fully equipped with state-of-the-art electronics, including: 6 High Definition flat-screen TV’s (60' flatscreen, smart TV) all with 120-channel satellite television and four Dell computers with 19-inch flat-screen monitors, wireless broadband Internet and printer. There are also 5 DVD players to go with the TVs, and board games. The interior is tastefully appointed in a blend of tropical and nautical themed furniture and artwork while the kitchen and dining areas are well equipped for any culinary occasion.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a wonderful week in St. Thomas at Villa Nicoletta. The atmosphere and amenities of the home were perfect for relaxing and entertaining. Tiki Bar and cooking out were great in the evenings. We did venture out quite a bit and recommend that you rent a four wheel drive Jeep or other vehicle capable of navigating through windy roads of St. Thomas hills. Magen’s Bay is close to Villa Nicoletta and is great to bring a cooler down, hang out in beautiful water, have a shaded lunch at your private and shaded picnic table. Also visited Main Street, St. John (Bring your Jeep or go with Scott) and Red Hook.

See you again Scott thanks for a great time..

Best place we've ever stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Nicoletta was much better than described or the photos could depict. Waking up to the waves crashing below was awesome and the view was amazing. We really liked their recommendations on restaurants and charters. We took a fishing charter and caught King Mackeral and Tuna.

Thank you Villa Nicoletta

Excellent private getaway in St. Thomas!

  • 4 of 5

Rented Villa Nicoletta for a total of 8 nights and had a terrific time. There was one couple and two singles, so there was plenty of room. This villa could easily accommodate 4 couples. The views from the deck are spectacular. It sits on the side of hill and you can see and hear the waves crashing on the rocks below you. There is no better sound in the world! The deck is very generously sized with a huge table for al fresca dining. The pool is on the smaller side, but it was perfect for our use. The outdoor tiki bar is awesome!! Hot tub was equally amazing. PS - Bug spray and sunscreen!!

We were met at our rental car facility by the property manager (who was AWESOME by the way - she made herself available by text at any time for questions/recommendations). We then followed her to the villa. [Please NOTE: As other reviewers have mentioned, getting around St. Thomas is a bit challenging. You should absolutely rent a 4x4. The roads are narrow, EXTREMELY windy and steep, littered with huge potholes the size of canyons, and generally not well maintained. Give yourself plenty of time to get places. Even getting out of the villa development takes a good 5 minutes.] After reaching the villa, we were given a tour and a walk-through of all of the amenities and instructions for our stay.

The villa is located on the north side of the island and is removed from the main downtown area. There is a fantastic restaurant, Thirteen, and a small convenience store located just up the road from the development. Parking is also a challenge in St. Thomas. My advice is to just follow what other cars are doing.

We stayed mostly at the villa. Prior to our arrival we had groceries and adult beverages delivered (Fresh Foods VI). I highly recommend this!! "Popping out" to the store for a few things isn't really possible unless you're ready to spend some time. We grilled out on the large grill several times and it was terrific.

Tiny issues (these do not really deduct from our amazing stay): The icemaker at the tiki bar, which was a major selling point for us, was broken when we arrived. It was fixed by mid-week, and when the property manager met us, she brought us two big bags of ice to help tide us over. Main room A/C was out - got fixed, but we didn't really use it due to great breezes. The weather was perfect when we were there (first week of April) - warm but not too humid. Sliders/screens could use some tlc to help them slide better.

The house was wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

The house itself was wonderful as well as our contact person, Dionne!! She was incredibly helpful with everything that had to do with our stay. We had groceries delivered prior to our arrival so that we didn't have to go grocery shopping on our first day there. The house was just as expected. Very clean and spacious. The island itself was beautiful with lots of choices of activities.

Lovely villa and views. Quite a drive!

  • 4 of 5

Villa Nicoletta is tucked away from the hussle and bustle of Saint Thomas. The views will take your breath away. Waking up to the sound of waves crashing 70 feet below your balcony as the breeze runs through palm trees is a treat you must experience at least once in a lifetime. The rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and clean. Bathrooms were great, there were tons of towels in the downstairs bathroom and the shared bathroom upstairs. The kitchen can be a tad small for a large group but really, it's not like you go on vacation to spend your day cooking so no big deal. The hot tub was a nice treat. The tiki bar allowed for us to fulfill our dream of bartending for a few nights. Scott and Dion, the villa coordinator, are very responsive. We experienced some issues with 2 TVs and they did their best to address them for us.

The pool is beautiful, we are thin skinned so sadly the pool went unused as it was too cold for us. It is well maintained and kept clean. The drive is not for the faint of heart. We are Floridians so to put things in perspective steep hills are not our specialty. We tried to be back at the villa before sunset every day because the roads can be a little scary at night. I think this is a trade off you need to consider when booking any villa in Saint Thomas. You can be close to town and the action to avoid the drive, but give up the view and privacy. Our drive time was about 20 min to Crown Bay, 30 min to Cost U Less and 45 min to Red Hook. We rented small cars and were fine.

Be aware of the fact that you are responsible for disposing of your trash. This means driving your trash up hill to the main road to dispose of it at the communal trash area. It was inconvenient, manageable but you should know it in advance so it doesn't take you by surprise upon arrival. That is the way trash is handled on the island so unless you want to pay a fee for leaving your trash behind make sure to add trash management to your schedule.

The villa owner asks that you are mindful of your power and water use. It was very easy to follow directions, so please turn off fans, lights and ac units before heading out. It really won't take more than a few secs. We were happy to comply with this request as utilities are very expensive in the Virgin Islands.

We highly recommend a trip to Water Island, Saint John, Coral World, and eat fresh Mahi Mahi at Hook Line and Sinker.

Enjoy your stay. It is a beautiful place.
