Your Own Pool - Oceanfront Villa very Private

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come sit back and relax with your favorite cool beverage as you look out over the dramatic and ever changing crystal clear sea. View more than fifteen different islands and cays, including the British Virgin Islands, Hans Lollik seen directly off the deck, and St. John to the far right. There's always something to look at and something new to see.

Villa Margarita is located within the gated community of Red Rock in Estate Peterborg; on the Peterborg peninsula, situated on almost an acre of ocean front property, providing privacy and seclusion just minutes away from the world famous and beautiful Magen's Bay Beach.

Enjoy the breathtaking ocean view from our private 10' x 20' pool and sundeck, the great room pavilion, and every other room in the Villa. The living and dining room areas are surrounded by glass where you can open the doors and invite the ocean in to join you. Even the chef in the kitchen has a view due to the pass-through bar. Speaking of kitchens, you'll enjoy the amenities of this fully equipped kitchen offering everything you'll need to create fabulous vacation meals.

Dine inside by candlelight or alfresco under the ancient 'mampoo' tree among the beautiful and lush tropical landscaping of wild orchids, bougainvillea, aloe and frangipani.

With its striking and unique pavilion style architecture, Villa Margarita focuses living and dining into one area, and affords the quiet and privacy desired for resting and sleeping in another. The terra-cotta tiles throughout, wicker furniture, select hand carved teak furniture and Caribbean colors tastefully blend together for the true flavor of the Caribbean. The cooling trade winds and ceiling fans throughout keep the Villa comfortable and pleasant. Air conditioning is rarely ever needed.

The three bedroom suites are located in one of the pavilions offering retreats of complete privacy; a king, a queen, and two twins (convertible to a king). Each suite has it's own incredible view of the ocean through over-sized patio doors. Uniquely different themes blend the allure of the tropics with the comforts of home. Guests only need to rent the number of rooms needed for their party (additional bedrooms are locked). The king and queen have their own bath while the twin room can access the half bath or share the queen bath through a separate outside entrance. Let the soothing sounds of the surf lull you to sleep with feelings of serenity and peace in this incredible island paradise escape.

Come enjoy the tropical breezes and swaying palm trees. Warm climate and water, music, tranquil beauty, lush lush Caribbean. It is waiting here for you.

We also offer multi-day charter sailing vacations in the Virgin Islands aboard aboard our 52' ketch 'Jalapeno'. For more information please visit our web site VRBO/HomeAway listing #3584222ha

About Jennifer

Ray & Jennifer love the Caribbean and take great joy in sharing their home with their visitors. While both were born and raised on the west coast, they are more at home in the Caribbean. They love cooking, sailing, diving and sharing good times with friends. They are always delighted to share their favorite restaurant recommendations and local knowledge. Just ask!

Jennifer purchased this villa in 2002

Why Jennifer chose Peterborg

We love the ocean and the trade winds, so we love having the windows open to the trade winds. The ocean is ever changing and beautiful at every time of day - even the dead of night. Everyone comments that the ocean sounds bring an incredible peace to the soul, we couldn't agree more. We especially like that the bedrooms are separate from the living area as it provides more privacy and leaves the bedroom area always quiet that mid-afternoon nap!

What makes this villa unique

Beautiful waters and amazing sunrises out every window never cease to amuse the viewer. The villa is very private, comfortable and makes you feel at home. We can offer you payment by cash, e-check, or credit card to make your rental payment effortless.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jennifer made us feel so welcome before we even arrived. She sent us info on the house and information on the island, activities and shopping. The house looked just like the photos but was even nicer in person. Every room is on the ocean and the view is magnificent. with the doors open and the breeze we never needed the air conditioner. The kitchen was very well equipped and we made very good use of it. There were lots of movies and games in the cabinet and we all enjoyed just being together. The set up of the house was perfect for our family-teenagers and an adult daughter and fiancé . I would not recommend this house for younger children though. The house also happens to be 5 mins from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Jennifer checked in with us during the week as well to see if we needed anything. She couldn't have been nicer.

A great getaway

  • 5 of 5

The villa has a terrific location on the north side of the island in a gated community with an amazing waterfront location. It is an older villa, but quite cozy and comfortable and was perfect for my wife and I who were staying for 4-days. We used the master bedroom which has an ensuite bathroom and there are also 2 other bedrooms that share a common bathroom. The kitchen and living / dining rooms were in a separate pod and also had great waterfront views. The large pool likewise has terrific waterfront views of the BVI's and a nice breeze throughout the day. We've been to St. Thomas many times, and the caretaker Linda met us onsite and reviewed all the features of the villa. The owner Jennifer was always just an email or call away and communication pre and post rental was great. My wife an I enjoyed a quick getaway to St. Thomas and fortunately just missed hurricane Irma by several days.

Location is great in Peterborg on the North side of the island, but still close to town for dinner or other activities. Four wheel drive or front wheel drive vehicle is a must as the roads can be steep, but we had no issues at all. Overall a great short getaway.

Unique, private villa with breath-taking views

  • 4 of 5

My wife, 17 year old son and I stayed here in late April and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very private, georgeous views of the sea, well maintained and the owners give you plenty of information about the property and things to do in St. Thomas and surrounding islands. We spent so much time on the beautiful beaches and in the water that we ended up not even getting in the pool on the upper deck. But that was ok. Both decks provide plenty of incredible views. Once again, we were really pleased with the Home Away property that we selected.

The Villa Margarita was by far spectacular.

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled from New York and Vermont to escape the last onset of winter. To our delight, the description of the villa from the website was exactly as stated. We loved everything about it. We went to Megan's Bay Beach twice, Coki Beach, and Secret Harbor Beach. We had great food at the Old Stone Farmhouse, Mafolie Restaurant, and Lattitude 18 - all recommended by Jennifer. The Beach food was great as well - authentic at Coki Beach. We had a BBQ one evening with rum punches admiring the ocean view. We do hope to return another day! Jennifer was a text away for any issues.

Outstanding location on St. Thomas!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 10 days on St. Thomas and stayed at the Villa Margarita.

This villa was exactly as pictured and described on the HomeAway web site.

The process of booking the house for our stay was handled by the owner, Jennifer, and she was prompt and responsive to all the questions we had. Jennifer did a great job of providing information about the house and making sure we knew what we needed to know for our trip.

The house is located in a gated community and you sure feel like you are on your own island. The view from the house and pool is wonderful. I also liked the fact that the house had the kitchen/dining/living area separate from the bedrooms. The bedrooms are in their own "building" connected via a breezeway. The pool is above the house and has outstanding views of the Virgin Islands!

There were many days where we just stayed at the house since it was so comfortable.

I would recommend that you rent a vehicle with 4 wheel drive. The house is located on a paved road, but the roads have a lot of incline due to the hills/mountains and it was nice having the security of the 4 wheel drive. Also make sure you can take your vehicle to St. John, if you plan to go by car ferry. Some car rental companies don't allow that.

Highly recommend reviewing the cruise ship schedule to try to avoid the crowds in the downtown shopping area. The only issue is that some of the stores may not be open if there aren't cruise ships in port. Having the cruise ships in port also affects the number of people at Magen's Bay Beach. While the beach is huge, it was much less crowded when there were no ships in port.

I would recommend Villa Margarita to anyone that is visiting St. Thomas and has a party larger then 4!

Slice of St. Thomas Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Villa Margarita for 4 days in June 2016 - what a great experience! From the views to the pool to the fantastic breeze off the ocean (we never even turned on the air conditioning!), the villa proved to be everything we were hoping it would be when we booked it. We'll definitely be back!
