Stunning Views of the Caribbean Sea and the BVI's!

  • 5 of 5

This place was dubbed the "Mediterranean Palace" by friends who had visited us during our stay due to the grand entrance of the doorway which resembles a "wine cellar door" before entering the outdoor patio and pool area; which when lit up at night is very tranquil and simply amazing. The breeze and the moonlight that glistened off the water at night reminded us of being on a cruise ship deck! All four bedrooms did not disappoint with beautiful furnishings and very modern bathrooms in each. The updated kitchen has plenty of room - we used the island as our serving area for breakfasts! This house exceeded our expectations and the surroundings are simply spectacular. If great breathtaking views are what you're looking for, surrounded by the elegance of old world architecture (stone steps) we took a lot of pictures of these, then this is the place for you. We would love to come back and stay again!

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

Joel has a beautiful home with a lot of space perfect for a family with older children or friends sharing a vacation rental. We never felt uncomfortable but the security guard at the main entrance was a plus. It's always hard where to book a place when you aren't familiar with the area and I was very happy with the upscale location. Almost everything in the home looked new. We knew they had been repairing multiple things and obviously worked very hard to get them done. There were 2 air conditioing units we weren't able to turn on and the oven/stove didn't seem to have any power to it. We do prefer to eat at home if possible so we were limited there. We did find the propane line for the grill and were able to hook it up and use grill but without a lid you do need figure your way to hold in the heat, we did. The view is just as pictured and the outdoor space was fabulous. Overall it is a lovely home but as with the rest of St. Thomas just not quite at a 100 percent yet. We really appreciated Joel letting us stay at his home and the banana rum was great!

Owner's Response: Ms. Krendl is correct about the AC and grill. I had expected the new units to arrive well before Xmas, but the hurricane issues led to more delay than anticipated. Im happy to say that the repair/replacement is being finished this week. As to the stove, my cleaners and my maintenance man assured me it was functioning. Possibly the ignite control was confusing. All has been checked for the current guests. Joel

Breath taking is an understatement No words can describe how great this villa is.

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start.... my family and I just returned from one of the best vacations We have ever taken. Seaview villa feels like home to us. The views are impeccable and the property is 5 star all the way. Joel is great host. The folks he has working for him such as the Maintenace guy Raul is great. My mother in law spent time talking to him about the island and the culture. Curlson the gentleman that works for him as well was very attentive to my Dad and aunts needs upon their arrival. Joel the owner is just an all around great guy. No question is a dumb one. Answered each call and responded within minutes. There is a restaurant on the property called Mahagony Grille that is GREAT. From 1-10 seaview gets a 50 in my book. The villa was very clean and well stocked for a day at the beach or simply relaxing at the villa. We have officially coined seaview as our family vacation home. The Holland family is in love with Seaview and Joel is now considered extended family. We are already planning for next year and have only been back home a few hours.

Absolutely Astonishing! Beautiful views, lovely villa!!

  • 5 of 5

The Seaview Villa is simply beautiful and so serene! The pictures online don't capture the beauty of it! Joe is an amazing owner. He responds in a timely manner every time that we sent him a message, and offered plenty of great suggestions. He has done a great job with the upkeep of the home! We felt like we were in paradise! We didn't want to leave. We will definitely return. The villa was very spacious and accommodating for our family of 7. Joe provides just about everything that you think of in order to help you have a lovely relaxing vacation with your loved ones. The views were breathtaking. Thank you, Joe for allowing us to stay in your villa and for helping our family create memories!

The Gunter family!

Amazing views and wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

You will not go wrong in booking this property. We had 7 adults and had plenty of space. The rooms were modern, clean and bug free, which in the USVI can be a challenge. The deck was amazing and the pool refreshing and prefect in size. One evening we lost power which again in the islands is not an uncommon issue however this property has its own large Generator which came on immediately and we did not lose A/C or power. With 7 people you had plenty of water for showers, cooking and doing laundry. With water and a washer and dryer on site that made the trip that much more pleasureable Joe, the owner, was incredibly easy to work with and he paid attention to the details which made our trip fantastic. WE CAN HIGHLY RECOMMENDS THIS PROPERTY FOR YOUR USVI VACATION NEEDS!!! In transparency for renters I would mention the the roads to the house are very steep, tight corners and a little out from the town so a car is called for if you plan to enjoy the islands beaches and sights. Keep in mind that all USVI roads are narrow, tight turns and lots of bumps, pot holes and unmark speed bumps that all pop up out of nowhere. None of this is a reflection of this property as it is island wide. Enjoy your stay and relax!!!!!!!

Spectacular villa

  • 5 of 5

Joel is a phenomenal owner, we loved the villa. Awesome views, plenty of room for our party of 7 and the decor is definitely upscale.

Joel thought of everything when remodeling this villa. We were running all 3 showers simultaneously AND using the washing machine and never once had issues with lack of hot water.

When the villa lost power we were shocked to hear a whole house generator start up and provide power for more than 24 hours straight. It is a true whole house generator, every a.c. unit, plug, Wi-Fi, everything is ran off of it. That was a huge plus.

Joel was happy to take our calls with silly questions and give us guidance. He was an absolute pleasure to work with.

I can't say enough nice things about Joel and his rental. The experience was the best our family has had in the Caribbean and it is a direct result of the beautiful villa and Joel's professionalism.

The pool, patio and outdoor furniture were pristine and so nice to come back to every evening.

The value for this villa is unmatched. The surrounding area in mahogany run is clean and very well kept.

If you are considering this villa then pull the trigger before it is too late. You won't regret it!

About Joel Aragona

I grew up in the outer boroughs of New York and moved to Manhattan in the late 70's. Real Estate ownership and management has been my business since the early 80's.

Once I 'semi retired' I was drawn to more beautiful property in the Virgin Islands. With a partner I bought my first place on St Croix, which we still own.

In 2012 I found a great waterfront home in the Peterborg East area, just west of the newest property, Seaview Villa.

Seaside, which has been tremendously popular with renters, and Seaview, both share the same breathtaking view, which is what I love about each of them.

Joel Aragona purchased this villa in 2014

Why Joel Aragona chose Mandahl

Seaview was affordable and needed just the right amount of upgrading that makes it so rewarding for me.

All the 'bones', like masonry construction, incredible landscaping, pool and stone walkways were there. And that magnificent view!

I just needed to leave my mark on it.

What makes this villa unique

Guests at any of the properties I've involved myself with all enjoy one terrific thing, and that is VIEWS!

The Caribbean and its little islands make for breathtaking living, which transports one away from all of life's problems. These homes are not merely a place to stay.

Their environment relaxes and rejuvenates a person.
