As you leave the powder white sands and calm turquoise waters of Maho Bay, you travel a national park mountain road bordered by towering palm trees and other lush vegetation. At 1000 feet you ascend a steep private drive and behold a gorgeous Caribbean villa opening to spectacular views; you've arrived at Ixora.

Ixora is the former home of the late Stephen Ambrose bestselling author and historian.The HBO series Band of Brothers was based on his book.

Your sense of awe will be further enhanced as you step inside Ixora and survey this very beautiful and private, 5 bedroom, 4 bath, luxury home. Ixora consists of 3 traditionally styled buildings connected by decks, tiled walkways, and a garden patio.

A 60 foot pool, surrounded by a 75 foot deck, a dining gazebo, abundant Tropitone deck furniture, and stunning views provide a delightful daytime playground. At night the low voltage site lights, the breathtaking view, tranquil privacy and the fabled Caribbean moonlight all combine to produce an irresistibly romantic, peaceful, and relaxing evening setting.

Gorgeous House with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

Two families spent a fantastic week at Villa Ixora. We loved every aspect of the house - and it's prettier in person than in pictures. There is plenty of room and the layout is perfect, especially when traveling with more than one family. Loved that the kitchen and great room are in their own building. The location of the house is fantastic - great views, amazing breezes and easy access to everywhere on the island. James met us at the Ferry and led us to the house. Can't wait to visit again!

Excellent value. Great for families.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Villa Ixora for a family celebration. The layout of the house was perfect. There are several sleeping areas that are separate from other areas of the house and separate from other sleeping areas which allows everyone to have a little privacy, while still being together.

The beds were very comfortable. There are

great views from the house and bedrooms.

James is very helpful and accommodating to make your trip enjoyable. Excellent value.

The place is even better than the pictures. The rooms are clean, spacious & airy. There was plenty of space (we were there with 4 adults & 4 kids) with the three buildings and central pool. Having a large pool and jacuzzi was an extra bonus. Steep gated private driveway and no visible nearby neighbors.The view is amazing of Coral Bay and it is a great location on the island to get to various beaches. The property manager was responsive to e-mails prior to the trip and to our phone calls during our stay. We would highly recommend this rental.

Exceptional Property with great location and views

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Villa Ixora Feb. 12-20. We love the place and are 100% satisfied with the rental. The pictures online do not do it justice. Fabulous! We visited one or two different beaches each day.

The location could not be better. To start with it is about 20-25 minutes from the Cruz bay Car barge terminal. Its only 10 minutes to the closest North shore beaches (Maho and Francis Bays) Its also 10 minutes down to Coral Bay where there are many restaurants. A little further to Miss Lucy’s. Don’t miss the full moon party if you get a chance. I should mention that the property is gated and is very secure. It is up a very steep driveway but it is paved so we had no problems getting in and out in our 4WD vehicle.

The house is wonderful. There were three buildings. One being the main living room, kitchen and dining space and the other two were bedroom buildings. All the rooms were very comfortable and airy. There was no need to have air conditioning. It is high above Coral bay and there was sufficient breeze to be comfortable. The children loved the pool and the adults seemed to prefer the Jacuzzi. The kitchen was fully outfitted with everything we needed and we got groceries on St Thomas and at the Starfish market in Cruz Bay. Dolphin Market in Coral bay was also a frequent stop for perishables. We used the barbeque several evenings and went to nearby restaurants for the remainder of our evening meals.

The view is spectacular. The house is almost 1000 feet over Coral Bay with its blue water and anchored boats. You could clearly see many of the British Virgin Islands in the distance. Watching the sunrise over the East End was always great early morning activity. We even had some great rainbows.

All of our family really loved the Villa Ixora and we recommend it most highly.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My adult kids and I stayed at Ixora recently and it was our second stay at this home. We love its location as you can get to virtually every area of the island, especially the great beaches, very easily. The home had every amenity we needed and on those nights when we weren't dining out it was so enjoyable to grill out and enjoy the spectacular view. Using the hot tub while stargazing was an added plus. With the views and the plentiful space it was always a pleasure to both get ready to head out for each days' adventure and then return home to clean up to either go out or simply stay in. Jim, the property manager, met us at our jeep rental place and led us to the home. He pointed out the things we needed to know and offered to help in any way. Sure enough, a few minor things were needed a couple days later and, true to his word, Jim attended to them that same day while we were out. I'd happily recommend Ixora - but just don't reserve it for when I next intend on reserving it! AR

Absolutely Extraordinary Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the most amazing house! We had it all here! We rented this house with our neighbors and high school friends from home.Some of my family had a hard time going out to enjoy the island because of how nice the house was. The pool was awesome, the privacy was great! My favorite part was that if you wanted to sleep in or stay up late the separation from bedrooms and main house was absolutely perfect!! The view from the porch to Coral Bay was Beautiful!! We had some visitors (donkeys) come in the back yard,that was great! We love this side of the island because it's a lot less traffic but plenty of things to do and the best beaches! Marc the property manager was the best. He picked us up from the ferry and told us a bunch of to know things and to do stuff! We did enjoy his company while it lasted.He gave a good history on the house that you must ask about if you are in to knowing things about where you are staying! He never minded us calling to ask him any questions! He told us to go to Starfish Market at the bottom to get your food! He was right! Starfish market guys are great and prices are better there! We will be going back to St Johns next year and I will be renting this house from here on out! I can't imagine staying any place else. My husband doesn't like to travel but he is all for always going back here! He absolutely loved it here!! Thank you again Marc
