Luxury Villa with Sweeping Views & Infinity Edge Pool - Weddings/Events Welcome
Meaning 'serenity' in Italian, this 6 bedroom and 6.5 bathroom gated estate sleeps up to 16 guests and is situated on the water's edge overlooking Great Bay and Turquoise Bay on the east end of St. Thomas where the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea meet in the exclusive Cabrita Point neighborhood. Villa Serenita features 2 master suites with luxurious jetted bathtubs, lush landscaping, an infinity edge pool, and access to a private grass and pebble beach where you will find phenomenal snorkeling.
Enjoy breathtaking views of the Caribbean sea from each of the 6 air-conditioned bedrooms with en-suite bath and patio access (and black out curtains). Relax by the gorgeous, heated, infinity edge pool. And listen to the gentle surf as yachts and sailboats go by. The Villa is also a stunning venue for destination weddings, receptions, vow renewals and other special events.
Set along the water's edge, an electronic security gate marks the entry to your haven in tropical paradise. As you enter, you'll find a spacious and elegant great room with that extends onto the veranda where you can dine pool side overlooking the ocean. To your right, you will find the dining area that seats 8 and kitchen that any chef will love. The open layout provides a perfect space for family and friends to be together.
To the left of the great room, you'll find one of two beautifully decorated master suites with jetted tub and king sized bed as well as a staircase to the lower level. To the right of the great room, you'll find the another large bedroom with suite. Just outside the great room and through the courtyard to the right, you'll find the second master suite with jetted tub known as the honeymoon cottage. The honeymoon cottage also features a kitchenette with mini-fridge, sink and microwave - and is perfect for couples who want privacy.
Outside of the great room on the lower level are the outdoor balcony spaces with a heated, blue glass tiled, infinity edge pool and the orchid terrace which is beautifully landscaped and dotted with outdoor dining seating and lounge chairs as well.
On the lower level, you'll find 3 more bedrooms, each with beautiful views. The first bedroom features a king sized bed, en suite bathroom with shower, private covered patio and pull out sofa.

The lower level also features and idyllic covered garden patio, perfect for al fresco dining as well as access to the private grass and coral beach.
In addition to being a gorgeous vacation rental, the villa is also an amazing venue for destination weddings and vow renewals, wedding receptions, corporate events and parties.

Andy, who grew up in England, always dreamed of having a home by the sea. 'I wanted
to have a place my family and friends from cold England could take refuge in.' Both Andy and Jane are ' people's people.' We love to have guests over for sunset cocktails or dinner and share in the joy of life!
What makes our home unique is Andy, being an engineer and builder, had 30 years of building for others in his past. So when he decided to do 'the structural shell' of the home he applied all he had learned. Therefore we have high cathedral ceilings of 28 feet and wooden flooring throughout. From the Italian tiles in the pool to the Spanish ceramic roof tiles, every piece of the house is thought out to the maximum detail.
Jane grew up working at her parent's flower nursery and spent 20 years in Italy and Europe as a designer and the design of the interior of the home reflects that. Therefore the garden is full of lush landscaping and the furniture is all high end mahogany throughout.
Another benefit of our home is Andy has been here for 19 years, Jane was born and raised here and can 'to help facilitate any of your needs,' whether it be to book a boat at a good rate, or find fresh groceries, 'we are happy to help!'
Twelve of us (six couples) rented the villa for a week while vacationing in St. Thomas. The home is well appointed. More space than needed for all twelve of us to spend an entire week together. We were greeted upon arrival and were given a tour of the home - we were shown how to operate doors/pool/security gate/etc. The entire stay was beyond fantastic. We sailed, snorkled, boated visiting BVI, dined in, dined out, had a catered BIRTHDAY PARTY CELEBRATION with photographer, florist and steel pan player one night in the terrace area, visited a number of beautiful beaches, visted St. John, swam in the infinity pool daily/nighlty, drank, sang and danced each night. We did not want to leave. Andy, the owner, stopped by each day and was very helpful in answering any of our questions during our stay. I would definitely recommend this home to large groups. I would defintely go back and stay at the villa in a heartbeat! Wish I was there right now!
We rented for 3 weeks, and it was perfect. Our large family has been doing villa vacations for 20 years on various islands. This was the best maintained and equipped villa we have stayed in. The owners were unbelievably responsive and helpful. The location was lovely. I would give this villa more than 5 stars - it deserves them.
The villa absolutely exceeded all expectations!! It is more beautiful and breathtaking in person!! The pool is wonderful, we were in it all week. A refreshing end to the day. The house is very clean, organized and amazingly equipped with everything you would ever need. Andy and Jane were incredibly warm, welcoming and very attentive the entire time. They went above and beyond bringing us what we needed daily to be comfortable and content in the house. Jane even bought us new knives to ensure my chef husband-to-be was well equipped. The level of hospitality provided by the couple was top notch and warmer than that at any hotel. Our experience at the villa as a family, the time spent together (but not to close because it's huge), and the memories created make the stay here worth every single penny. And if you can fill the space it's actually not much more than a hotel room. We got married here and are already planning to return in a few years. I would highly recommend it to any brides to be. The perfect spot for your fairytale wedding!
Andy, Jane, and this incredible property made our wedding and honeymoon perfect. Andy guided us to our destination and made us feel welcome. Jane checked on us throughout our stay and took care of any needs we had. However, the star of this entire trip was the Villa itself. The pictures do not do it justice. The architecture, condition of the estate, setting, views, pool, and furniture were exceptional. I wouldn't have changed a thing. We plan on returning every 5 years to celebrate our anniversaries.
We had a great here! Our group of 13 from NYC made it out to St Thomas for the holiday weekend. Jane met us at the Ritz to give us the keys and take us to the house. She was prompt and friendly. The dogs stay away from the main house and have no access to it (this was a big concern prior since I'm allergic to dogs but Jane was kind enough to address it going as far as sending me a video to explain the layout of the house in regards to the dogs). The grill is great and the pool being heated is a huge positive. They were prompt in sending the deposit back too. Would highly recommend this house. Thanks Jane!
This property was incredible! Andy was so great to work with leading up to our stay, and also anything we needed during our day. We made this the house for all of our family to stay at during our wedding. It allowed us the space to get to spend time with each other. Everyone loved the views, and the pool! We loved being able to use the kitchen and grill to make a big dinner together on our last night! If we make a trip back down to St. Thomas, we will absolutely be staying in this gorgeous house again!
Located on the east end of St. Thomas on Cabrita point, this 5 bedroom home is conveniently located with several nearby beaches, restaurants, activities and attractions.
