Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to Slice of Heaven Villa. From the moment you arrive and begin soaking in the beautiful, panoramic views of Magens Bay, you'll understand why we consider this our little slice of heaven.

No stop in St Thomas would be complete without visiting world famous Magens Bay Beach, which has been recognized as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. With 2300 sq ft of indoor living space and plenty of outdoor living space, the house has been designed to maximize the view of Magens Bay from every part of the property.

Enjoy relaxing in a very private location on the Peterborg peninsula. We do not tout our home as a 'luxury villa', but just a comfortable tropical island home. The villa provides an open floorplan with a large, fully equipped kitchen and three en suite bedrooms that have their own private balconies.

We also understand that you may want to enjoy some amenities with your stay. That is why we have included the following items:

- Flatscreen TV with all of the premium cable movie channels for you to enjoy

- The home is air conditioned for your comfort

- Enjoy grilling on our barbecue from the patio

- Free wireless internet connection

- Washer and dryer

- Take a refreshing dip in the pool

Stop dealing with ridiculous 'per person' rates or other added fees that many other rentals charge. We offer you a wonderful island experience at a straightforward and reasonable rate. If you find a better rate for a comparable 3 bedroom home on Magens Bay, call us. We will be happy to work with you on the rate to earn your business.

We would love to have you as a guest and hope you will enjoy staying here as much as our family does!

About Todd and Brenda

My husband and I love to travel and we fell in love with St Thomas after our first visit. Like many people, we enjoy getting away from those cold winters, which is why heading to St Thomas always seemed like a great idea. With beautiful beaches and temperatures averaging over 80 degrees all year, St Thomas was a perfect choice for us.

Todd and Brenda purchased this villa in 2011

Why Todd and Brenda chose St. Thomas

We chose to buy property overlooking Magens Bay because we believe it is the most beautiful spot on the island. We fell in love with the property from the first moment we walked through those doors. We stood out on the balcony overlooking the mesmerizing blue waters of Magens Bay for over an hour and knew we found the right place for us.

We love that the Peterborg peninsula is very private and allows us to enjoy a quiet and relaxing environment unlike other more busy parts of the island. The island is small, so we are never far from anything on the island, but feel miles away when we get back to the property.

Amazing home, amazing views!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Slice of Heaven for February vacation. Family of 5 two teenage girls and a grandfather. The home is absolutely perfect amazing outdoor space and well appointed with everything you need. Coolers, beach chairs, beach towels, noodles and floats everything need for beach days. Brenda & Todd were waiting for us at check in and showed us around and gave us suggestions for activities, restaurants & grocery stores. They were extremely helpful and always available for questions before and during our stay.

Our typical days were spent driving to different beaches then returning home around 4pm to enjoy the pool and watching the iguanas in the trees. We cooked on the grill all nights but one. The outdoor space and grill are too much to pass up for a restaurant. We ended up choosing the 2nd grocery store Todd suggested because it was closer, I wished we would of kept going to the one he suggested. The one we went to was a warehouse bulk type store so ended up being a little more expensive because couldn't just by a thing of ketchup you needed to buy a bulk pack but even with that I found the prices to be fairly cheap for the islands. We did groceries for 5 for the week with 3 cases of beer, rum & wine (don't judge it's vacation) and it was $400. The one night we went out we went to the restaurant at the golf course and it was amazing, Todd had suggested it and it was great.

I would suggest googling and pulling up the cruise schedule for the week and plan accordingly. When we stayed Tuesday & Wednesday were heavy cruise days and a lot of people go to Meagans Bay. Meagans Bay is beautiful but in my opinion not even close to the nicest beach. We really enjoyed Lindquist & Sapphire which are both 15mins away on the north side of the island. Sapphire has food & drink options on the beach where Lindquist does not. We also did a day catamaran to Jost Van Dyke through calypsovi which I highly suggest beautiful day on the water with snorkeling, beach and sail with open bar for $115 person +$45 custom fees for BVI. We also took the ferry to St John for the day which was easy to do.

We rented a vehicle which is necessary if you want to leave the home. Roads are narrow and curvy but drivers are very courteous and it wasn't bad at all.

Only negatives were that the pocket beach they show is a descent walk especially if you bring any chairs or coolers and the access stairs had been vandalized so we were never able to go. Other than that perfect!!!!!

Ahhh wish I could still be there

  • 5 of 5

We had a Very nice time at slice of heaven, with 2 other couples. The kitchen is stocked well. The layout is good. When you first get there, you walk through a gate then down a flight of stairs and you are on a big beautiful patio with a small pool, and breathtaking view of Magens bay. When you walk into the house on the main floor is a large open room with the kitchen dining living area again with fabulous views. There is a half bath on this floor as well. When you walk downstairs there's a small for area and the doors to the three bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. There is a laundry closet in the foyer area as well. Each bedroom has a great view of the Bay. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Perfect family Christmas location

  • 5 of 5

Could not ask for a more perfect location for three couples at different life stages to stay. Home was as described and the views spectacular. Little confusing to get to the first time, but nothing insurmountable. Highly recommend a jeep if your not use to navigating the island as the wrong turns can be quite the adventure!

Home had everything we needed including some thing we hadn't even though of. We will most certainly make a repeat visit and highly recommend the home to anyone!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time doing a VRBO outside of the continental US, we were travelling to St. Thomas for my daughter's Quince celebration and needless to say, I was quite worried. All of my worries completely disappeared the moment we walked in. The owners have cared for this property with such loving devotion and it is evident in every area of the house. Waking up to the views and sitting outside in the evenings was the highlight of the day for me. You can't go wrong with this place!

Renewal in heaven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Slice of Heaven for our 25th anniversary. Everything about this home is heaven, Our daughters had plenty of privacy with their own rooms/baths. This house is set up perfectly for 3 couples to share comfortably! The views are to die for from every room and the kitchen is well stocked with utensils and supplies. I honestly could find nothing to complain about and am dying to return to paradise! i found my happy place!

Excellent rental all around

  • 5 of 5

The villa was near the top of a hill on the Peterborg peninsula overlooking the bay.

What a fantastic view of the water and the few sailboats normally anchored near the beach. The view at night of the lights across the bay was also very tranquil.

There was a full moon on our third night that was just beautiful shining over the bay.

The villa was very comfortable and clean. Plenty of outside seating for dining and relaxing. There was also a couple of nice reclining chairs for use by the pool.

The pool was small, but was fine for getting wet and cooling off on the days we stayed at the villa reading, and relaxing.

The only real issue was that the propane grill was out of gas and they did not have a spare tank on site. So, we had to wait a couple of days until they could get a new tank delivered.

I would suggest that a spare tank be left onsite for when one runs out.

The bedroom was comfortable and spacious. The bed was a bit too firm for us, but after a couple of nights, we got used to it. The pillows were foam and could have been nicer.

I should mention that the bedrooms were on the lower level, about 16 steps to walk down. Not an issue for us, but could be for some people.

The stove and frig worked great and they had plenty of dishes, pots and pans and utensils.

Having a working dishwasher was also nice - I hate having to wash dishes on vacation.

The Wi-Fi worked great in the main house, the bedrooms, on the porch and out by the pool.

The whole surrounding area was quiet - very relaxing and tranquil.
