Seaside Villa is a traditional Caribbean style home with arched Mahogany doors, Saltillo floor tiles, and a KNOCKOUT view. NE trade winds send cooling breezes throughout the year.
The decks on both levels face the Caribbean. There is a Weber gas grill for outdoor cooking.
A new custom kitchen was installed in late 2013, with all new stainless appliances and granite counters.
The upper bedroom is over 380 sq. ft., with a balcony just made for dreaming, and a bathroom that also has a balcony for ' getting away from the crowd '
Subtle concealed mood lighting around the decks and pool set the tone for wonderful evenings with friends and family.
Is it a special occasion? The upper bedroom has a romantic canopy bed!
All this in a private and tropical environment.
BEING INSTALLED August 2014, a new automatically operated gate into the Peterborg East community.
I purchased Seaside Villa so I could enjoy the beauty of St Thomas with family and friends, and to offer the same pleasure to rental guests.
Joel Aragona purchased this villa in 2012
The Villa offered me an incredible waterfront location, a swimming pool and privacy, all in one of the most desirable North Shore locations.
The house was wonderful to stay at. Came with a lot more amenities than we had anticipated. This made shopping much easier since there was so much to work with at the house. A little confusing on how to get there which was great to have Curlson lead the charge on the first day. Would recommend people to come here, and if we get a chance to come back to St. Thomas we will definitely check on this house to be available.
I totally agree with what others have said...this is a beautiful and comfortable place to spend a vacation in St. Thomas. The layout was perfect for our family (of 4) and we never even used the third bedroom. Keep in mind that the third bedroom is set up as an efficiency with its own little kitchen on a lower level accessed only by an outdoor staircase. It feels separate from the rest of the house, which could be perfect for couples traveling together, but may not be ideal for larger families with young children. The villa is essentially built into a cliff on the north edge of St. Thomas, so the views of Hans Lollik and Jost Van Dyke are spectacular. Access to the villa is (naturally) via a steep staircase down from the car park. Just something to keep in mind if you're traveling with someone who has trouble navigating stairs. A bottle of Cruzan rum was waiting for us when we arrived, and the kitchen has a powerful blender ;). Joel, the owner, is communicative and responsive. When we experienced a maintenance issue, he had a handyman there asap. Be sure to tell Joel how many people are in your party and what the sleeping arrangements will be so he can make sure housekeeping prepares each bedroom accordingly. The villa has its own automatic generator, which is a big plus on St. Thomas. Definitely rent a car. You'll want to explore beaches, restaurants, and shopping on the island. Also, on St. Thomas, there's no garbage pickup, so you'll need a car to drop it off at the Mandahl facility near Mahogany run, a few miles away. The island is left-side drive, but with left-hand (regular US) wheel. Takes a bit of getting used to, but not a problem. A jeep-type vehicle isn't necessary...but recommended. World famous Magens Bay beach is only a 5 minute drive from the Villa, but it can get crowded on days when lots of cruise ships are in port. Check the ship schedule and plan to visit Magens on a quiet day...same for shopping in town. Smith Bay is also beautiful. Magens and Smith charge $5 per person, plus $ 2 per car. Other beaches on the island are free. Our favorite beach was Abi, which has only recently become accessible by car (via a rough dirt road). There's a great beach bar there and free lounge chairs if you buy food and drink. It's still unspoiled.
Thanks, Joel for making your home available and for being on top of things so we could have a great trip!
We had 3 couples stay for 7 days at Seaside Villa. This house is just as advertised. Joel was very responsive and easy to work with. He had a driver that met us at the airport and let us get groceries before following him to the house (very helpful for the first time visitor to St. Thomas!) The house is very private and has amazing ocean views. There is plenty of space with the 3 bedrooms on 3 levels. The kitchen was well equipped. The house was clean and well maintained. The location is great - remote and quiet yet very close to Magen's Bay and other attractions. I would highly recommend this property and hope to return again someday.
Five of us stayed here for a week in November. The house is beautiful and has amazing views. I would recommend getting a car as it really isn't near the downtown area. You may lose cell phone service towards the top of the hill by the house but once you are on wi-if in the house you are all set. The views from the back deck are amazing and you can sometimes see cruise ships come by. Pelicans tend to fly by every so often as well. The house was well equipped and really offered us everything we needed. Magen's Bay was very close by. We did see people walking but it would be one heck of a hike. The house is not far from Udder Delight and you must stop for an adult milkshake. Cup and Cork is also nearby for breakfast sandwiches and lunch which made it easy to bring food to the beach. Joel provides a cooler and plenty of towels to take to the beach. We only used the pool one day and it was so relaxing. It was a wonderful vacation and I look forward to going again.
We had a great time at St Thomas. This house is central located but just far enough away to have complete privacy. I would recommend this house to everyone.
We thoroughly enjoyed spending our silver anniversary in Joel's Seaside Villa this week. The house was in a fabulous location with an outstanding north ocean view. Everything we could want was found in the house, from the kitchen and bedroom to the pool and decks. Thank you Joel for sharing your little piece of paradise with us.
