Located in one of St. Thomas's best residential neighborhoods and secluded within tropical landscaping and its private pool and sun deck which overlook one of the island's most coveted views of Charlotte Amalie and the Harbor.
High View's main level offers four bedrooms all on one convenient level. The Great Room is surrounded on two sides by glass sliding doors opening to the pool and sun deck. The kitchen and dining room also share this space. The oversized breakfast bar is equipped with DSL and Wi-Fi for your laptop. Just outside the Great Room on the pool deck is a covered pavilion set with a dining table and chairs for alfresco dining. Also on the pool deck is a nice gas grill.
Wooden ceilings on the Villa's main level add warmth and character to each beautifully furnished and decorated room. The Great Room features a mix of sea grass and upholstered furniture with some large wooden armoires and tables. It makes for a very comfortable soothing home.
Located on one side of the Great Room is the King master suite, a two twin bedroom and bath and a separate half bath. This is the perfect layout for those parents who wish to be near their children. On the other side is another King bedroom/bath suite which open directly to the pool deck. A separate pavilion, accessed across the pool deck outside, offers a fourth bedroom which is a very private King suite. All bedrooms are air-conditioned and have cable TV.
The lower level, accessed by a lighted outside stone staircase, is High View's Apartment Guest Suite. Fully air-conditioned, this beautifully decorated Suite has a living area, its own kitchen and a King bedroom and bath with tiled shower. There is a covered porch just outside which looks down on town and harbor. This suite is ideal for a couple that wants seclusion or for teenagers.
High View is conveniently located mid-island with easy access to town, restaurants and beaches. It is a lovely vacation home for friends and family.
High View was perfect for our family of 8 adults and Gena was absolutely fabulous. Gena was extremely efficient and helpful from the time leading up to our trip through the very end. The pictures are very accurate and the view is spectacular! We rented two Jeeps from Gena and they worked out perfect, one of her many spot on tips!
As a side note we Googled everywhere we wanted to eat/shop and the directions were spot on. Just pay close attention as there are many hidden, unnamed streets. For dinners we typically did a drive by first to confirm the specific location/view (we wanted fabulous views while eating).
For Future Renters:
- The Inn at Mahogany Golf Course: Delicious food, make reservation outside ahead of time, dressy casual attire.
- Banana Tree Grille: Delicious food, amazing view, make reservation ahead of time, dressy casual attire.
- The Smoking Rooster: Delicious BBQ, casual attire.
- The Abi Beach: Secluded beach and bar. Look for small white Abi flag and note, the one way dirt road is long but worth the trip.
- Magen's Bay Beach - Tourist beach and bar but very beautiful. Get there early.
- Gourmet Gallery Food Emporium: Very clean grocery store, much better selection (i.e. meat, produce, etc.), and similar to what you would find back in the states. Much better than Pueblo's however we recommend visiting Pueblo's for the experience and you can compare.
- Beach Bum Boat Rentals: We rented Take It Easy (Kenny Chesney's old boat) for half a day and it was definitely one of the highlights from the trip. Justin and Brooke were amazing crew members. You must snorkel!
- It appears a lot of things are closed on Sunday's.
Overall amazing first trip to STT and High View was perfect! Cannot wait to return! Thank you Gena for a wonderful vacation!
We recently spent a week of vacation at the High View property, located in the Mafolie Estates, and it truly was like home away from home! All the amenities as others have described (fully stocked kitchen, beautiful pool and deck, lots of games to keep the family entertained, extremely spacious, unbelievably comfortable beds!) plus just some simply amazing views of Charlotte Amalie and the beautiful Caribbean! And the best plus is that the property comes with Gena and Brian, who can help arrange rental cars, airport pickups, etc., and whose recommendations, from restaurants to snorkeling spots to nightlife, were always spot on! Thank you again for an amazing week!
This is truly an awesome rental location, we rented out the whole property to accommodate 9. The house and apartment are amazing & the views are breath taking, enjoyed waking up to it each day! It was one of the nicest places we've rented & we travel often, well kept, spacious, & clean. This house caters to all of your needs from its location to the well equipped kitchen. The staff is very informative, polite, & professional.
The Indians have the Taj Mahal, the Romans have the Coliseum and St. Thomas has this BEAUTIFUL Mafolie estate. In a scene out of your favorite Nat Geo/Discovery Channel show, the deck (with its own pool!) offers you a breathtaking view of the harbor and the island. Tucked away in a private part of town, the estate allows you some much needed privacy for R&R on an island inhabited by cruising tourists year-round. The spacious bedrooms, kitchen and entertainment area make it perfect for anyone still wishing to have the comforts of a home and their own space while enjoying their time on St. Thomas. There are a few local bars and places to eat nearby, but the estate is also very accessible to main parts of the island through personal or public transport (taxis). Your vacation will turn out better if you stay here, its that simple. Do not look anywhere else for an island accommodation, you're simply doing yourself a disservice.
We couldn't be luckier on our trip, we spent several days on other islands and boat trips and were only looking to stay in St. Thomas for 4 days, the owners were very accommodating to our schedule. Some of us have stayed at other villas in the same gated community on prior trips and we naturally gravitated towards this spot because of its safety, location up on top of the mountain with gorgeous views and how close it is to Sib's, the best restaurant on the island. While we were there, they've actually arranged for trees to be cut down in front of the property so the view of Charlotte Amalie & the harbor has only gotten better during our stay. The villa is very lovely, recently updated, painted and new furniture, we had lots of comfort. The main kitchen and living room area were spacious and cozy at the same time, it was perfect. Thank you!!!
High View Villa was all we expected and more. The pictures enabled us to plan our trip knowing it would suit our needs. Gena was extremely helpful in the planning stage and answered all of our texts promptly during our stay, meeting us at the airport and introducing us to the Villa. Our family of 9 enjoyed the private bedrooms and baths- ages 13-91!
The villa was well appointed- comfortable beds, quality linens, beach towels. We enjoyed the outdoor grill and ability to dine in with comforts of home. Grocery stores were close by and easy trip to downtown Charlotte Amalie for shopping and restaurants. We did need to rent a car.
The view was spectacular and we spent most evenings on pool deck with a glass of wine after a fun day at Magen's Bay or a day trip to St John.
We will stay there on our next trip to St Thomas.
