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 ecoli 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 printe. 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

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.

Nice rental with a few hiccups

  • 4 of 5

We were very excited about our trip to Villa Nicoletta. The house was very clean and comfortable. We were hoping for the walkway to the water, which really does not exist. Additionally, the pool had clearly not been cleaned lately and was on the verge of green. After it was cleaned/shocked on Wednesday, 4 days into our trip, it was cloudy and finally turned clear on Friday. The hot tub was missing a filter and was cloudy and started to have a film build up around the edges that was slightly green after the foam settled from the jets. Their also was a construction crew right next door during the weekdays, so that was not the most comfortable while trying to lounge in swimwear on the patio. We also enjoy music, and the speakers outside were disconnected from anything so glad we brought our little bluetooth portable with us. Other than that, the house contact responded quickly to our concerns. The restaurant suggestions were spot on however, we ate at Old Stone Farmhouse, Havana Blu and Thirteen, all were terrific. Hull bay is a great location to hang out on the beach, have drinks, and great food also. Definitely get a 4wd vehicle (we had a jeep wrangler), you can explore and get to many beaches others will not go too. Also, we went to water island and enjoyed honeymoon beach with a golf cart rental. Also, if you like inshore fishing, try Swashbucklin Tours (Capt. Rick Gonzales), he was also terrific. Overall, we had a great stay at the villa. The outdoor grill is where we did most of our cooking during the week, the ice maker was also a big plus, as you should take the provided cooler everywhere. The outdoor Tiki Bar area was a nice plus also since we like to be outside mostly. We just normally get to enjoy the pools and hot tubs more and could not do so as much this trip. The views from the villa are incredible and the drive to anything really isn't that far as long as you are comfortable driving the roads.

Owner's Response: It is imperative to contact us if there is any problem. The pool and hot tub are cleaned every Wednesday by the same pool company we've been using since 2006. It is tested, vacuumed and chemicals are added accordingly. The pool always looks great, if you ever have a concern with our pool call us and we will have the pool company out to fix it. We were not contacted by this guest. The hot tub uses bromine for the chemical and this causes a bubble like look if run for too long. Lastly there is no path to the water and is not advertised as such.

Incredible Villa and Views

  • 5 of 5

Villa Nicoletta was amazing. Everything was as promised. The views from the deck (and living areas) were/are incredible. Our group (7) was Wowed with the property and very much enjoyed our stay.

The whole house water filtration system was a great selling point and very much appreciated by all of us. The Tiki Bar has to be experienced to be truly appreciated - the professional ice-maker was put to great use during the stay. The back-up generator was another selling feature - fortunately, we never had to utilize it during the stay.

It was incredible to relax on the deck. Being able to go from the hot tub, into the pool and back added to the overall experience. Enjoying a cool beverage (in plastic cups) while lounging in the hot tub in the evening with a view of the water and Inner Brass was a highlight.

The bedrooms were perfect - beds were very comfortable. We had no complaints about anything during our stay.We utilized the kitchen and Tiki BBQ several times during the stay to make great meals.

Although the property is a bit removed from everything (which made it peaceful,) we were never more than 10-15 minutes from any of the beaches, shopping or restaurants we wanted to visit during our stay. The drive down the drive-way/road was an adventure which we came to enjoy. Although we had a Jeep Wrangler, any SUV or decent automobile would do - the roads are not that bad nor is it that difficult to learn to drive on the "left."

We will positively come back to this property the next time we are on St. Thomas!

Unexpected travel destination

  • 5 of 5

We were not planning on traveling to the Virgin Islands. We had plans to visit Panama with friends however one of our party had some passport difficulties so the airlines suggested St Thomas. Not wanting to turn around and go home we looked online well waiting for the flight for accommodations. We we're in luck! We found this villa on Caret Bay. Not ever have been to the islands and having no time to research we thought we would just stay 3-4 nights and find a place on the beach (is there anything on the beach?) for the rest of our stay.

After the 1st few nights we found a condo "on the beach" and moved after 3 nights. Having to make last minute reservations there really was not much to choose from and our party was somewhat divided on moving from the Villas to another place, but we are adventurous. After checking in the the condo and looking around we promptly and instantly text and emailed the owner and his property manager. The condo was dirty, walls with holes, toilets brown inside with hairs and we'll it was a wreck! We have stayed in many places that were suspect and are not to picky when staying in other countries so this is saying something about the condo.

Scott and Dionne were very helpful and responded very quickly especially considering the time of night. We met Dionne at a small restaurant near the Villa and picked up the keys paid cash for that night with the agreement we would get online and reserve the house online the next day. Unfortunately we had some technical difficulties that Scoot promptly help us through. My point is the service and patience of Scott and Dionne adds up to a 5star rating.

The house is clean and comfortable with all the extras. The pool was a little cold for my taste but the rest of the group enjoyed it. The hot tub was clean with a view. The bar is awesome. The views are amazing! Just as stated in the ad. The kitchen is stocked with all you need for cooking. One suggestion get a car because you are on the North-side down a small bumpy windy road a jeep or 4 wheel drive is best for the island. Some reviews talk about how far the house is away from activities but it's really only 20 minutes to anywhere you want to go. We are having a great vacation! Places to go if you like adventure find Stumpy beach it's not the easiest place to find and you need 4 wheel drive. If you get a chance and have the extra money to spend the Second Wind boat charter is excellent too.

Wonderful New Years at Villa Nicoletta!

  • 4 of 5

The Villa is everything you can ask for. The views are breathtaking and the amenities were perfect. The Villa is about a 15 minute ride from the airport. I do suggest 4 wheel drive if you rent a car, the island roads can be very steep. The amenities are exactly how described on the website. Everything you would need to have a gourmet catered dinner to just a simply BBQ at the Tiki bar. Take the 20 minute drive to Magen's Bay or the 10 minute drive to Hull Bay (awesome fish tacos) to enjoy the lovely beaches. We also went zip lining..so much fun! A trip to Jost Van Dyke is a must! I would recommend this Villa to anyone traveling to St. Thomas!
