About the property

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!!!

Amazing house, amazing view, perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Amour was a dream. We went as a large group, two families, with four adults and four young children between us and we cannot say enough about how amazing our stay down in St. Thomas at Villa Amour was! The house was great, beautiful and spacious, well appointed, plenty of room for all of us, it really felt like our home for the week. The house has all the amenities of a resort and although we did venture out at some point each day to beach hop or to pick up groceries for that evening, we could have easily stayed at the house all day and had a blast. Between the pool, the grounds, hot tub and outdoor entertaining spaces (and that view!) we really felt like we had our own private resort. Rick went above and beyond for our two families which really made our trip not only possible but truly unforgettable. We all had an amazing stay and will certainly be back!

Villa Amour is by far one of the best places we've ever stayed in the Caribbean

  • 5 of 5

Villa Amour is by far one of the best places we've ever stayed in the Caribbean. The condition of the property and the overall setting are perfect for those looking to get away from it all! During our stay, the owners were very helpful in answering questions ranging from inquiries about the property to the best local restaurants. A SUV is a must to navigate some of the roads on the north side of the island. Enjoy!

Stay on St. Thomas in Style

  • 5 of 5

Villa Amour was a nearly perfect place to call home for our family of five when we visited St. Thomas last week. It is a very well maintained four bedroom with a pool, hot tub, and a view that is breathtaking. Rick (owner) was easily reachable prior to our trip, was available if needed, and should be very proud of the wonderful home he built. Of the many positives, it is a comfortable home (2 upstairs rooms have a/c, 2 downstairs with fans, all w/ensuite bathrooms), has a nice chef's kitchen and well furnished. Great place for kids (very young ones be cognizant of art/sculpture collection). While the home itself is very private, you're never more than 20 minutes drive from most of the island's major attractions. The house could comfortably accommodate 7-8 people. Would recommend renting a Jeep (the road down the hill is bumpy, but was fun to drive). There's a gorgeous and very private beach at the end of the road -- easy 5 min drive.

Villa Amour fit my family like a glove!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the holiday week at Villa Amour. When we first stepped through those doors and saw that view, we knew that the money we had spent was well worth it. The views are spectacular and the home's layout is perfect for a family of six. Everyone had a comfortable bedroom with its own bath. The common areas are large, spacious and open to the outdoors -- allowing individuals to enjoy the sun or the evening stars and still be a part of any activity happening on the main floor. There is a television available but we rarely used it. We chose to play games or have animated discussions over scrumptious dinners grilled on the property's grill. The access road from the main road is definitely not for the faint of heart. (A four wheel drive is definitely in order.). But once you have mastered it, you actually look forward to the slow speed it requires. That way, you are able to say hello to the many cows that line the road and admire the views and foliage. To top off the owner's hospitality, my daughter discovered that the box of hiking shoes she had bought in town contained two left shoes! As we were checking out, the owner noticed that we were leaving the shoes. When he discovered why, he took it upon himself to go to that store, get the proper mate AND mail it to my daughter. We had the best time!

This was our first trip to St. Thomas, and boy did we pick the right place! The absolutely stunning views accompanied by this gorgeous, fun, comfy, spacious, and artsy home was something we will never forget. The location is perfect, and all the conveniences are nearby - restaurants, grocery stores, etc. It has everything you could ever need or want in a vacation home. We were 6 adults who swam, bbq'd, played games (they are provided), relaxed, adventured, and enjoyed each other's company. If you are thinking about staying at a resort, you may want to rethink the idea and check out Villa Amour. You won't regret it!

There are really no words to describe how truly breathtaking the views from this incredible home are other than PURE HEAVEN. From the moment you walk in, your senses are swept away... the music was playing, the breeze coming through the open glass wall, the smell of tropical flowers (yes, fresh flowers and tropical plants throughout the villa) and that surreal view of the ocean. This villa is amazing and like the other reviews have already explained, the pictures do not do it justice. We were a group of 6 (3 couples) and spent much of our time in that amazing pool. Waking up every morning and opening up the glass panels to enjoy coffee and breakfast on the lanai was so amazing. Rick was fantastic... meeting us upon our arrival and then walking us through the Villa to make sure we had an enjoyable vacation. Although the owners live on the property, you had no idea they were ever there. And there is great comfort in knowing that Rick was just a text and a few steps away if we needed anything or had questions. The bedrooms were very spacious and the beds & linens were very comfortable. Although only the 2 upstairs bedrooms have AC, you don't really need them... leaving the windows open and using the fans kept the bedrooms cool & comfortable. We dined in all but 2 nights while in the Villa because the gourmet kitchen has everything you could possibly need to prepare meals. The Jacuzzi was a bonus to enjoy in the evening after a long day at the beach. 4-wheel drive is a MUST (preferably a Jeep) to access the house and honestly, a must to travel around the island as well. If you plan on visiting the private beach of Netljeberg Bay (which is just a short drive down from the Villa), again... 4 wheel drive is necessary. We had that beach all to ourselves. We vacation in St. Thomas every year for the past 6 years and have stayed in both condos and private homes, but this one takes the cake. Trust me, it is worth every penny - you won't be disappointed. We are already planning our 2017 vacation and can't wait to stay at Villa Amour again... this time for a few days longer (it's very hard to leave).
