Enjoying a lofty location just a couple minutes' drive from famous Magens Bay Beach, Villa Gardenia is one of our most beautiful villas. Serpentine garden planters flank Villa Gardenia's entry gate. The garden courtyard, graced with a trickling fountain filled with tropical fish, a 1500-square foot covered tiled terrace and brick-lined arches framing marvelous ocean views, welcome you into this gracious property.
Screened doors open from the terrace into Villa Gardenia's Great Room, a large, fully air conditioned and elegant space which is divided into a sitting and conversation area, a formal dining area, and the spacious gourmet kitchen beyond. Right outside the Great Room, a few steps lead down to the lovely tiled pool and hot tub deck, which overlooks the ocean and the outlying island. Mid-level above the sun deck is a lively blue-tiled bar with a built-in gas grill, perfect for convivial evening gatherings under the stars. A marble-walled powder room is conveniently located just off the kitchen, as is a small home office alcove equipped with a laptop computer and Wi-Fi.
Villa Gardenia's impressive kitchen is a gourmet's delight, and will please even the most demanding of culinary buffs - a marble counter tops three sides of the kitchen, one side of which serves as a counter with six bar stools, perfect for sipping wine in air conditioned comfort while dinner unfolds. A large center island boasts a five-burner gas cook top, two ovens and a microwave.
Villa Gardenia's three fully air conditioned bedroom/bath suites are accessed from the Great Room. The master suite is beautifully done in a refined style, with a queen sleigh bed and a sitting area, and the en-suite bath is pure luxury: marble from floor to ceiling, a raised bathtub, a large shower and an enclosed toilet area. A large cedar-lined walk-in closet is also just off the master bedroom. A door from the master suite opens directly out to the covered terrace. A hallway connects the second and third bedroom suites to the covered terrace, allowing access to the master suite too.
Villa Gardenia is completely fenced and located on a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential neighborhood. Charlotte Amalie is just over the hill, less than a 10 minute drive away - but you may prefer to stay and relax within the walled elegance of this enchanting property.

My vacation was very relaxing. I did not like the drive to the villa, however, after arriving at the villa, I was pleasantly surprised by the layout of it. The views of St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix, Tortola and Van Dyck Islands were amazing. The rock path leading to the beautiful flowers was wonderful. The portico was serene because you have wonderful views including from the back balcony. The kitchen for me was amazing (but needs better pots). Since I love to cook, the kitchen was perfect. The master bedroom and ensuite was fantastic and so were the other bedrooms and bathrooms. I made great use of the books in the curio cabinet. All-in-all, I had a wonderful vacation. The only thing I hated was the winding and rough roads to get up there.The young lady Jackie came to clean everyday and she was amazing, a wonderful person and kind spirit. We enjoyed talking with her as well. She made the villa even more enjoyable, just to see her smiling face everyday.
We really enjoyed having an entire home to ourselves. Being in a hotel room can get rather cramped. It was a luxurious villa and we felt right at home. We would have liked to know what our view was looking out into the ocean; i.e. what land masses could we see and what was the name of the bay. Overall, it was a great experience for our first villa stay. We will definitely consider this again when traveling.
Villa Gardenia is first class all the way. Easily accommodates 6 people in real luxury. Great pool and spa, patio with a fantastic view for relaxing in sofas or dining at table. Gourmet kitchen with lots of space to get together while preparing dinner or cleaning up. Master suite would please Queen Elizabeth... Villa has everything you could want, Wi-Fi, fantastic video/home theater system, excellent cell phone reception/signal.
Only negative is the location is remote and the road into the villa needs LOTS of work.
