Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom 3 1/2 Bath Caribbean Styled Villa

Caribbean design, hotel quality amenities, tiled pool and nearby beaches make this private home an ideal vacation/wedding destination. With a lovely Caribbean Sea view 111 feet above the beach on an acre of private land, this fully-air-conditioned three-bedroom villa is located in a secluded area only five miles from the airport and three miles from downtown St. Thomas on the island's sunny south side. Ask about special offers on select dates.

CalypsoBlu boasts updated living/dining room furnishings and a well-equipped kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances. High-def flat screen TV, HD cable service and Blu-Ray DVD player are also provided in the living area, along with an assortment of DVD's and indoor/outdoor speaker. High speed WiFi is provided throughout the villa and on its decks. Sliding glass doors with screens open all around the living/dining area so you can enjoy the sights, sounds and tropical breezes even when inside.

Spend a day around the tiled pool (5’ deep throughout and 25’L X 11’W), enjoying lunch prepared on the Weber grill.

All three bedrooms enjoy a private tiled bath, hair dryer,, reading area, flat screen TV/DVD/Cable and Wi-Fi. Luxury bed and bath linens are provided. All three bedrooms have private entrances onto the pool deck.

CalypsoBlu is approximately 2,300 square feet indoors with an additional 1,200 square feet of deck/veranda space outdoors, much of it covered. A fully automatic backup power generator and water filtration system ensure your ultimate comfort. The villa is rented to one group at a time and is never shared. The villa is unfortunately not wheel chair friendly with several steps between living area and bedrooms. The villa is also not suitable for younger children as all bedrooms have direct pool access.

CalypsoBlu is managed by an on-island company, providing you with access to a concierge who can arrange anything from an in-Villa massage or chef, to a private yacht charter or the assistance of dedicated 24/7 maintenance personnel.

About David J. Martin

When we first visited St. Thomas in 2001 we knew we had to come back. After several years of vacations in many a tropic climate, we chose sunny St. Thomas, the capital city of America's Caribbean. For a family from Chicago, the Virgin Islands are ideal.

David J. Martin purchased this house in 2011

Why David J. Martin chose St. Thomas

We considered many properties when selecting a vacation home. But when we saw CalypsoBlu, with her Caribbean design and open floorplan, we knew she was the house for us. With large sliding doors and windows everywhere, even inside the villa we feel we are outside, which is what we want when we visit the island. While we've updated the villa since our purchase, we've kept it Caribbean charm while adding a wide-range of amenities.

What makes this house unique

Sunny Dry South Side of Island

Private Home with Private Pool

Just Above Morningstar Beach

Ocean Views easy drive to Beaches

Outdoor Private Shower near Bedroom 2

Caribbean Style Designs Inside and Out

The Closest You'll Get To Paradise On Earth

  • 5 of 5

If you are anything like my wife and I and have been sifting through webpage upon webpage looking for the perfect place to stay then look no further. We were very keen on privacy, fantastic views, convenient location, comfort, and this was it and more! Beautifully nestled in the mountainside of the Island this home is the place if you need rejuvenation. Just a 5 minute drive to the capital city Charlotte Amalie yet the privacy makes you feel like you are a million miles away. Everything you need is here, I mean you will not have to worry about anything but maybe a few groceries. A 4X4 is a must have just be careful while driving since you have to drive on the left side of the road. The problem is that the views are so beautiful with almost every look that it is hard to keep your eyes on the road and also remember to stay on the left. And what can I say about the property managers except that they were great. Angela was awesome calling us often to see if we were in need of anything. I never had a problem contacting her from the minute we met up at the airport to the minute we left the island and she is so sweet with her Caribbean welcome and hospitality. The home was clean and the layout is amazing. As soon as you open the front door of the home you are in the Lanai which is the perfect spot to enjoy your early morning and late evening coffee with your love one. From the Lanai a few steps down is pool. When you walk into the Lanai from the front door to the left is a master bedroom which has its own separate entrance and to the right is the Living room and kitchen area. We stayed at the home about 80% of the time, we didn't want to leave and I have no regrets. Be careful when you are walking on the deck during the daytime, it got so hot because of the sun beaming down it. They provide you with towels; use them to cover the chairs if you are going to lay out on them. You are going to love the balconies from the bedroom and living room. On your first day there take a drive down to iggies, you will be having Pina Colada with Caribbean music on the beach. This home is keeper, we definitely will be returning especially when this house is managed specifically with your every concern in mind. Thank you so much!

Great location, private, gorgeous views, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a month at CalypsoBlu and enjoyed it! The owner clearly has tried to anticipate needs, and make his property a fine vacation rental. The management company was very helpful and responsive. The location is very good, just 10 minutes to Charlotte Amalie, stores and restaurants and 20 minutes the other direction to the Redhook area. It was fun to watch cruise ships leaving the harbor as they come quite close. The private pool is excellent, and was used often for a refreshing dip! The way the 3 bedrooms are laid out, each is very private and quiet. The A/C is excellent in the main room and bedrooms. One downside is the long unpaved and rocky private driveway which makes going and coming somewhat of a chore. Overall we had a wonderful time at CalypsoBlu!

Owner's Response: Michael, Thanks so much for your kind words. We do our best to make CalypsoBlu an ideal Caribbean vacation spot. What you describe as the 'private driveway' is actually a public roadway. Our property begins at the paved drive. But good news. The roadway received extensive work just after your departure and it is now smooth and easy to navigate. So that problem is solved! Thanks again for staying with us. Your monthly stay is to-date our longest and we appreciate it very much! David

We fell in love all over again

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Calypso Blue. Our whole vacation was amazing from arrival to departure. For our first time to the Caribbean we had a wonderful time. The Property Management (Angela and their maintenance team) were amazing! We spent more time outside than inside only because the views from the pool and deck were beyond words for us. The weather was exceptional in mid to late June. We loved the house and and every ammenity that came with it. I hope that we are welcomed back as we would love to spend time as a couple there again. Thank you for everything!
