Overview

East End Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 6 Bedrooms, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

A unique property, Caribbean Castaway, located on the east end of St. Thomas where there is less rain, boasts a lush sprawling lawn on a large piece of property with direct water frontage. All bedrooms offer the most beautiful ocean front views on the island. All bedrooms offer en suite bathrooms, their own balcony overlooking the infinity edge pool, the professionally landscaped sweeping grounds leading to the water's edge. Swaying palms, multi-colored flowers , and the resident iguanas are a treat for all. Thatch Cay, The British Virgin Islands and St. John are all within view. A stunning stone cottage for two, recreated from the designs of the sugar mills from the past is situated just 20 feet from the water's edge. If your plans include playing on the lawn, relaxing by the pool, swimming or snorkeling in the sparkling turquoise waters directly off of our property -it is all right here in your backyard. Other properties boast about a short drive or walk to the beach. At Caribbean Castaway there is no need to drive or walk to enjoy beautiful sand and direct access into the water. You have it right on the property.

This location is perfect. If your plans include going to the beach Lindquist Beach (the new Magens Bay) offers life guard supervision, and Sapphire Beach are both a five minute walk from the house. The town of Red Hook is just a five minute drive, where you will find delightful restaurants, live entertainment, groceries, shopping, boat rentals, marinas, dive expeditions etc. There you can also catch the ferry every hour to St. John and the British Virgin Islands.

Caribbean Castaway is a six bedroom, solar powered 'green' villa on a one acre water front piece of heaven. High vaulted natural Cypress ceilings, large glass windows and doors, comfortable interior furnishings create the perfect island atmosphere. Art work by local artists Guy Harvey, Elaine Estern and Jonna White are featured throughout the villa. The Mahogany front door, hand built and carved by a local artist is one of the architectural focal points of the house . The gourmet kitchen features Bosch appliances, granite counters, two refrigerators, stand alone ice maker and is fully equipped to cook a gourmet meal for 12 or simply reheat leftovers. For your entertainment, satellite tv and a separate media room with a 55' flat screen television and surround sound, complement the main living area. High speed totally secure Wi-Fi is provided for continued access while away. Additionally, there are hard wire Lan connections in the Bedrooms and Office for even more security.

The air conditioned villa features five bedrooms, four with king size beds and one with two twins (which can be converted into king bed ) The cottage, the sixth bedroom, is equipped with air conditioning , a king size bed and a beautiful stone shower. All the bedrooms and cottage feature individual climate control, luxury linens, plush bath towels, flat screen tv's and DVR's.

In St. Thomas the outside living space is just as important as the inside. Caribbean Castaway is equipped with a large gas grille, outdoor stone pool bar, pool bathroom, expansive covered porch/terrace and a pool deck featuring crushed coral tile imported from the Dominican Republic. The infinity edge pool features a glass mural of a coral reef and turtles swimming on the bottom. A generous size soaking ledge allows you to comfortably lounge with your chair in the water. For additional enjoyment away from the house there is open space on the lawn for you and your guests

Come experience Caribbean Castaway and you'll be sure to be swept away enjoying the Caribbean winds and atmosphere of the islands

About Joanne Hux

Joanne and I have traveled around the world and have always compared St Thomas to wherever we have been. We always said St Thomas was the most beautiful place in the world and in 2006 purchased a home there. We then took four years to create this home. The quality of products and craftsmanship of the house far exceeds any on the island. The landscaping was designed to enlighten the senses thru tropical plants with colorful flowers. The atmosphere is what we would expect a house and property in the caribbean to be. We hope you share in our creation. This house is a reflection of us. So by getting to know the house you get to know us.

Joanne Hux purchased this villa in 2006

Why Joanne Hux chose St. Thomas

Sometimes in the winter you just want to get warm. Florida is very nice but can get cold. St Thomas offers a no risk warm vacation and is easily accessible from major airports. The water colors in St Thomas are like no other. In addition to this St Thomas is under the American flag. The east end of the island is a much more relaxed atmosphere than Charlotte Amalie while still offering easy access to restaurants, shopping, St John and the BVI 's via the passenger or car ferry. We are situated between Linquist Beach and Sapphire Beach, ( both just a five minute walk from the house), two of the most beautiful beaches in the world. After a two year search we found this property and fell in love. Simply because it is flat. Most properties in St Thomas are built on a cliff which limits the use of the villa to the house. We wanted a property which you can truly walk into the water from and have open space for a yard with grass. This offers our guests the ability to enjoy the plants and foliage of the islands.

What makes this villa unique

Caribbean Castaway is one of the finest rental villas in St Thomas. It's a short walk to Sapphire Beach and Lindquist Beach. Best of all you can walk into the water straight from our property and the snorkeling is incredible! Our house has it all. A great place to just relax at the pool, swim/snorkel, soak up the sun or escape to your own balcony for some quiet R&R. All of the rooms are separate from the main house so you have the ability to escape the crowd if you like. Stone/brick/shell materials used as they were 200 years ago , the vaulted cypress ceiling, the stone shower, the kitchenette area all make the separate cottage very special. Did I mention that the cottage is 20 feet from the water's edge ??? The cottage is included in our rate for a six bedroom rental only. Cottage may be substituted as one of the bedrooms ( Five bedroom minimum) for a additional fee of $500. In the VI islands we lose electricity often. This house is equipped with a 60 KW generator which automatically starts when the electricity goes out. This should be part of your consideration when picking villas as not all rentals have this equipment. In addition all of the inside space is air conditioned. Some rentals only offer air conditioning for the bedrooms.

Incredible!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing stay at Carribean Castaway. The owners (Joanne & Ron) were easy to work with and the property managers, Dave and Dawn were very welcoming and very genuine!

Our family had a blast and have so many memories while staying in this gorgeous and comfortable villa. We did our share of exploring the island & eating but the villa has everything...great views, an infinity pool, a beach with great snorkeling off their cove while listening to relaxing music while you chill, swim or snorkel. Chartered a catamaran named Altitude Adjustment to St. John (Brian - very cool dude & retired cop from CO who knows a ton of USVI history). Thanks you Joanne & Ron for sharing your incredible abode!

Cannot wait to return again! Wish it was tomorrow!!! #besttripever

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely amazing! You must, must, must rent the cottage by the water when staying here. The property is setup with everything you can imagine, even a sound system throughout and down to the beach. The snorkeling in the private beach/cove was great! The property is just up the hill from Red Hook, so running into town if you forgot something was quick. The property managers and owners were helpful and very responsive. The house/property layout was great and big enough for all of us to gather together or to get out of each others way if we wanted to.

Beautiful house, beautiful landscape, beautiful private beach! The only bad part was having to leave. Thank you so much!!

I know that our stay has there has made some repeat guest for the future. Thanks again

Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5

12 of us stayed for a week to celebrate a (young) couple celebrating their 80th B/D and 60th wedding anniversary. It was the perfect spot with absolutely perfect accommodations. 6 individual rooms w/full baths, great common areas, and so much to do onthe islands, depending on your desires. Overall, an experience of a lifetime!!

Caribbean Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week long stay at the fabulous Caribbean Castaway, what can I say, it was absolutely wonderful. We couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate two 80th birthdays and a 60th wedding anniversary. This home is generously equipped and located only a mile from the ferry dock in Red Hook. There is so much to do and see in the USVI but you would perfectly satisfied to spend your vacation relaxing in this spectacular home. Highly recommend!!!
