Overview

Dorothea Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Infinite Views from Infinity Pool. But you may never want to leave this custom built tropical home, filled with enough whimsical and exotic touches to make any stay a magical experience. Villa Amour was also designed to provide the ultimate in comfortable luxury -- from the gourmet kitchen complete with herb garden to the expansive indoor/outdoor living spaces. This home offers the supreme relaxation experience. Whether you are enjoying the views from the four 'en suite' bedrooms or lounging pool side, Villa Amour is the place to enjoy a superior Caribbean experience just 15 minutes from the airport.

The Unique Benefits of this Villa: The villa Is very private, has many one of a kind works of art and sculptures. A lot of time is spent tending to the tropical gardens as it is a labor of love. Being a retired chef, the kitchen is better equipped than most.

Why the Owner Chose Neltjeberg Bay: I didn't buy Villa amour I designed and built it . The area is pristine and unspoiled like the Island used to be.

Owner Description: I'm A 28 year resident of St . Thomas, a retired chef, I now renovate swimming pools and have a landscape company.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A trip to Remember!!!

Left on 10/08/2010 for a stay in June 2005



I went to St. Thomas with 3 friends and our daughters who had just graduated from High School...It was a graduation gift.

Everything about the trip was awesome. Rick was there waiting at the airport to guide us to the villa...we arrived at night and it was quite the experience getting to the villa..I began to wonder where in the world we were going as we made our way down the rough terrain of the mountain,,couldn't believe our eyes when we entered the private gate and saw the villa.

Everything about the place was breathtaking...the furnishings..the decorating...the lighting that gave it almost a magical feel.

We were so excited to get the in the beautiful pool and stayed up late just soaking it all in.

What a joy when we got up the next morning to the most spectacular view I had ever seen.

St. Thomas is a fun beautiful island and we did lots of exploring the sites...but nothing compares to the time we spent enjoying Villa amour...Our hosts were so gracious and fun...we even shared a couple of meals...And they brought us flowers!!!

Moments In Time

  • 5 of 5

There are moments in time that stay with you for a lifetime. Moments like a first kiss, your wedding day, the birth of a child or a special anniversary. The first time that you walk into Villa Amour will be another moment in time that will be etched in your memory. The villa has been emaculately kept. The open concept with the breathtaking views of the Carribean sea through huge glass sliding doors leading onto the lanai will leave you speechless. It's a moment in time that will make you stop, release every bit of pressure and stress from the daily grind, and just smile. In fact, I'm still smiling from my trip to Villa Amour.

It is a very large split-level villa and comfortable enough for 4 adult couples or any combination of family members to co-locate without getting in anybody's way. Each bedroom has its own private bath (a real plus). The kitchen is well supplied with dinnerware, flatware and cooking items, if you choose to prepare your own meals. There's even a grill - which worked out great for us. Being from Texas, we are BBQ-crazy and just felt comfortable using the grill. You don't have to prepare your own meals, but everything is there if you want to.

The large pool is sparklingly cool, clean and inviting. The sauna is warm and comfy -- just like slipping into your best baby-soft pajamas. I was worried at first about there only being 2 rooms with air conditioning, but that is not even anything to consider. My husband and I slept in the room without air and didn't feel any discomfort at all. The room has a fan and the breeze off the ocean is great. In fact, I had to use a blanket, the room was so cool. Upstairs, one of the other couples told me they had to turn the air conditioner off. It's not an issue at all and when we arrived it was 90 degree weather.

Rick and Stephen are the perfect hosts. They live on the property, but you will never see them or hear them unless you call for help with something or they can offer suggestions on sightseeing or locations. Rick met us and welcomed us into this beautiful villa and showed us how everything worked. You will sort of miss part of what he says because you will be so mesmerized by the beauty of the house, but he's happy to come back if you need him.

Finally, if I can make a suggestion, you must rent a jeep. You'll be so glad you did. Your spouse or adventurous teens will love the road to the villa. It is indeed exciting. You'll never want to leave Villa Amour.

A little bit of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Villa Amour. It is absolutely beautiful. The house is clean, comfortable and filled with visual delights. Rick and Stephen have a huge collection of art on display. Even after being there for a week, I still discovered things I hadn't noticed before. The view overlooking the bay is fantastic. My favorite part of the day was having my morning coffee while watching the sun rise.

Rick and Steven are wonderful hosts. They live on the property and are quickly available to answer questions, offer suggestions and rectify any issues, but they are generally out of sight. Steven took the time to lead 3 of us on a tour of the gardens, identifying the flowers and foliage. He even gave us several seedlings that Rick cleaned of soil and packaged for our flight home.

Beach chairs, toys and snorkel gear are available.

A car is a necessity, preferably with all wheel drive.

We found paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We really did find paradise! My brother's family and my family rented this beautiful home, a total of 8 of us, never felt cramped. The pictures do not do it justice, it is GORGEOUS! Plenty of room for 2 families! Rick and Stephen were the BEST hosts ever. We enjoyed talking with them for recommendations for absolutely everything. Every square inch of the house has immaculate details and the views are absolutely breathtaking. The landscaping is meticulously kept and professional. The wall of glass collapses back into the wall for the most beautiful view every morning and the breezes feel amazing. We sat on the covered patio at night playing games and listening to all the sounds of the birds and frogs - so peaceful. There is a really nice and secluded private beach at the bottom and we went snorkeling with the gear at the house that they have provided for our use. The house is completely private - half the fun is getting to the house! (make sure you rent an SUV/jeep). There is a great restaurant near the house - Thirteen, great food! We went exploring everyday and asked Rick and Stephen for suggestions on where to go and they happily obliged. They even acted as concierge when we headed back to the airport - taking a few in their car so that we weren't all cramped in one car with our luggage. You won't be disappointed, it is such a relaxing and beautiful home with every attention to detail. We will be back Rick and Stephen! I can't say enough about this house, it was everything we wanted and MORE!

You Will Not Be Disappointed!!

  • 5 of 5

From the views, to the private bay, to the foilage, to the landscaping, to the art deco, and to the gracious hosts who made our stay relaxing and welcome...I highly recommend staying at the villa. Please know it takes a 4 wheel/all wheel drive to get you there, but getting there was half the fun. Rick and Steve, the owners on arrival and friends at departure, made our stay that much more enjoyable with dinner recommendations, snorkeling tips, great conversation, and even concierge service as we needed help getting luggage to the airport. The northern location was out of the way but close to the airport, downtown, and the other bays. We loved every minute of it and will hopefully get back soon.
