Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6) Private pool

Wake up each morning to breathtaking panoramic views of Magens Bay, Hull Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, the British Virgin Islands and many other uninhabited islands. The minute you walk through the front door, you will be drawn to the walls of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking beautiful sandy beaches and turquoise waters. With its high ceilings, open floor plan and many sliding glass doors, all the rooms offer beautiful ocean views.

Perched high on the lush Northside of St. Thomas, Treetops is situated perfectly to allow guests to take advantage of both the cooling breezes and enchanting sounds of the rain forest that will lull you to sleep at night. Surrounded by jungle foliage, the house and pool deck offer complete privacy. Add in the beautiful views, and you’ll quickly see why Treetops is an excellent place for relaxing, or a romantic vacation or honeymoon. The very private pool, deck and outdoor patio offer both shade and sunny lounging areas, and overlook the trees with a stunning vista towards Magens Bay.

On the main level, the master bedroom is framed with sliding glass doors and breathtaking views. From the master bedroom, you can directly access the pool deck and private bathroom or relax in the cozy master sitting area. A recently added Sleep Number king size bed allows for custom mattress firmness selection. Adjust the bed to your comfort level, snuggle into the high end linens, and let the chirps of the Coqui frogs lull you to sleep. The master also features a walk in closet that provides plenty of storage and the convenience of a main floor washer and dryer.

The kitchen is fully equipped, and includes newer stainless steel appliances, plenty of dishes and utensils, even a Keurig coffee maker. And the gas grill on the pool deck offers a great alternative for sizzling up a steak or fresh fish.

The living room is outfitted with new comfy furniture along with a big screen television, including access to streaming services (Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, etc.) as well as a small DVD library. The CD stereo system is connected to Bose speakers throughout the house. There are two bathrooms on the main level.

Through a separate entrance on the lower level, you will find the second bedroom. The perfect family bedroom, it is furnished with 1 queen size and 2 twin beds. It features walls of windows with the same spectacular views seen from the first level, and also boasts its own full bathroom and private balcony with outdoor seating.

Treetops is centrally located and thus a convenient base from which to explore the 31 square-mile island. Whether you're interested in sunning, swimming, shopping or golf, you are only minutes away by car from: Magens Bay beach (rated by National Geographic as one of the top ten beaches in the world), Charlotte Amalie with its duty free shopping and Mahogany Run's 18-hole golf course.

Beach chairs, coolers and beach towels are also provided for your use while on the island. We provide an easy map and written directions from the airport to find your way to our little piece of paradise, and our nearby property managers Cindie and Jon have 40+ years of experience on the island, and will be happy to share their own tips and suggestions.

For stays over 3 nights we start you off with starter breakfast supplies, coffee, milk, muffins, eggs, butter and a bottle of Cruzan Rum and Coca-Cola. Cruzan is made in St Croix- what a great way to start your vacation with locally made rum.

About Cindie Kennedy

Eddie & Linda Finch -- After spending several years exploring the many islands of the Caribbean, we came to love all that the Virgin Islands have to offer, and St. Thomas was the PERFECT place to jump-start our retirement adventures with the purchase of a second home.

Cindie Kennedy purchased this villa in 2017

Why Cindie Kennedy chose Northside

After exploring all corners of the island, we knew that the lush north side with its cool breezes and rain forest vibe was the place for us. On a house-hunting trip, from the moment the realtor opened the door to Treetops we were drawn to the walls of windows overlooking Magens and Hull Bays with BVI beyond. What an incredible view!! We quickly realized we needed to make this slice of paradise our own. We've already begun improving upon this already magnificent property and we look forward to continuing to make it even more incredible for all to enjoy.

What makes this villa unique

VIEWS, VIEWS and more VIEWS! Read other guests' comments... it's the first thing anyone sees, and it leaves a lasting impression on all guests, friends, and family. Past guests rave about the character of the villa -- with its own VERY private pool and grounds, and the generous and romantic master suite. They especially love the feeling of falling asleep to cool Caribbean breezes whispering through all the windows and the sounds of the Coqui frogs lulling them to sleep.

One of the best things about our villa is our property managers, Cindie and Jon! With 40+ years of residency on the island, they provide both a warm welcome as well a wealth of suggestions, recommendations and help to ensure your vacation and stay here exceeds expectations.

Guestbook comments from the manager

As we pack up after a week's stay atTreeTops, we are trying to figure out when we can come back!

After a 4 hours delay in Ft. Lauderdale, it was a pleasure to be welcomed by Cindie and a bottle of run and breakfast supplies for the next day.

Our mornings consisted of breakfast on the balcony, enjoying the view of Magen's bay. Over the past week we have been to Linquist beach Sapphire Beach, Cinnamon Bay ( St John) and Magen's Bay. While each was a post card of paradise, we enjoyed Magen's the most ( beware of the Painkillers and Rum punch)

Oceana was our favorite spot for dinner, but equally enjoyed the laid back vibe of Hull Bay Hideaway.

No matter how much fun we had on our excursions it was always enjoyable to kick back, poolside, and listen to the sounds of St. Thomas. Can't wait to return!

Awesome is an over-used word ...

  • 5 of 5

... It should be limited to truly special events and places, such as a staying a week at Tree Tops on St. Thomas in the USVI. From this perch high in the Trade Winds, the open sliders of the well-appointed villa immerse your senses in a stunning panorama of the Caribbean. Mix in some Parmesan fried oysters, spicy, sesame seed shrimp, a swordfish steak and the thoughtful services of Cindie and Jon (the complementary bottle of aged Cruzon is a nice touch), and it just can't get any more ... well, awesome. Unless maybe you stay longer.

Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at treetops villa. Fantastic views and really great amenities. Cindie was awesome as well. We had a small maintainance issue and she was very responsive in repairing the issue. If we go back to St. Thomas we will definitely consider staying here again. The notebook had loads of info and was very helpful... The cruzan rum was a nice touch as well.

Note: we did have a little trouble finding the place it's really tucked away so get here during the daylight.

Peaceful Haven

  • 4 of 5

We were thrilled with our stay at Treetops. The atmosphere is one of comfort and tranquility. It really is a pleasant home away from home. We enjoyed the views and the rainforest sounds at night. Jon and Cindie were responsive to our needs and very helpful. The breakfast goods, the cokes and the bottle of local rum waiting for us were a nice touch. We vacationed with our high school and college aged children and they loved being there. Cindie's book of suggestions was a godsend and we made good use of it. We would recommend this property to all who are looking for a place to unwind and relax.

The Villa that just keeps on giving....

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a fabulous stay at Tree Tops, the villa that just keeps on giving. The photos are spot on but nothing like being there. Tree Tops is situated at 1400 elevation offering ocean island views, tropical breezes with soothing sounds of the lush tropic forest. The villa is well appointed with lovely island décor, a great place for cooking and having dinner at home, inside or poolside. A TV is provided but the property is so inviting it is an afterthought. One does not need or want to leave but, of course you do. Contrary to other recommendations we did not need a jeep, we managed fine with a small SUV…just need a little higher clearance. We enjoyed diner at the local Hook Line and Sinker restaurant in French Town with Caribbean vibes a short block away; trips to St John, an island mostly designated as national forest where we explored sugar cane plantations, white beaches, clear blue water and snorkeling at Trunk Bay; Water Island and the best fish tacos at Honey Moon beach, just to name a few excursions. Cindie and Jon, being 40 plus year locals are the best host and tour guides. Cindie helps begin the vacation with breakfast supplies and a bottle of Cruzan Rum. I would highly recommend this property or any of her properties because of her management style. We made great memories in this little piece of St Thomas paradise. Thank you Cindie and Jon and to the owner of Tree Tops for sharing. Cheers to the next lucky people!!

Truly Paradise

  • 4 of 5

This villa listing description was accurate. The property was clean and well maintained for the most part. We experienced some problems with the cable for the tv for the first day and the owner attended to it. But there are no TV's in the rooms so that can be a little bit of a challenge for those who may prefer to watch tv while resting in bed. There is also no iron and ironing board in the guest bedroom which is down a level and not attached to the main house. The drive up the hill is steep and wining. However, overall the stay was pleasant and the view is gorgeous.
