Southside Villa Rental Photos and Description

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.

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, coffee station, 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 villa in 2011

Why David J. Martin chose Southside

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 villa 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

Beautiful and Peaceful vacation

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very well appointed. Each bedroom had its own bathroom along with a coffee maker and set ups. The view from all balconies overlooking Morningstar beach was magnificent. Mornings sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee watching the cruise ships pulling into the harbor was special. The house had all the little things you would expect. Very comfortable and private week. Looking forward to going back again. David and Maureen Ouellette

Words cannot do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Calypsoblu for a week in April 2016. With us were 2 other couples and we couldn't have found a better place to stay on the island. I want to be able to tell you how magnificent everything was but I am afraid that words cannot do it justice, but I will try. The Villa is beautiful! From the location, to the views, to the Villa itself. The kitchen is complete with all the dishes, silverware, pots & pans, coffee pots, toaster, utensils, etc you will need for your stay. The bedrooms all have their own bathrooms, which were more than adequate (stocked with plenty of towels) with king size beds that were the most comfortable beds ever!! Everything is decorated so beautifully! The views from the rooms, the lanai, the pool deck, and the balconies are all magnificent. Sitting on the pool deck with our morning coffee was an experience as we watched the cruise ships come in for the day. This was our first trip to the Virgin Islands and we all fell in love the minute we got to the Villa which, we believe, made our stay on St. Thomas much better than staying at one of the resorts. You really cannot ask for a better location. Because it is at the end of the road you have all the privacy you could ask for. The pool became our haven in the evening, cooling off after a day of sightseeing and shopping, while we watched the sunset. Absolutely beautiful!

I could go on about how fantastic our experience was but cannot find enough words. I am hoping that I have given Villa Calypsoblu the raving review it deserves. But, you really have to experience it for yourself! This place will not disappoint you!

Perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It was perfect for us - 3 adult couples -- each couple had private room w/bathroom and the common space was very accommodating. The view was incredible from inside and out, outdoor space was perfect, we used the kitchen, outdoor grill and pool area and cooked several meals at the house, functional with alot of charm. Would definitely recommend.
