Overview

About the property

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.

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 East End

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.

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Caribbean Castaway for a little over a week this past July. The house is unbelievable. From the cypress ceilings in many rooms, to the furnishings we were swept away. The house accommodated all twelve of us. Each bedroom with it's own bathroom was fantastic. The covered walkways to the bedrooms were very nice when we had a brief shower. The cottage is BEAUTIFUL. It is maybe 20 feet from the water's edge. The stone work is nothing less than like a artist painting. Well worth renting.

While there are many unique things about Caribbean Castaway what sets this house ahead of any others we have rented in St Thomas is the grounds. This house has a lawn and gardens which rival in beauty to any of the major hotels on the island. You can play on the grass or sit on a sandy beach area at the waters edge !! ( Some houses only have porches since they sit on a cliff ) The direct water access and the private lagoon is unbelievable. One of our favorite spots is the point where we sat most of the mornings and sunsets. One way you sit you see St John and the other way Linquist Beach. I can't say enough about this property. It is very reasonably priced. Also, Dawn and Dave, the property managers are AWESOME. We felt they were there if we needed them. ( but we didn't ). Red Hook is just, maybe, three minutes away. One evening we were in the pool and decided on a wim to go to St John for dinner. This was maybe 20 minutes before the ferry left for St John. We all jumped out of the pool got showers got dressed and made the ferry to St John. Extremely convenient. One last thing. Joanne the property owner is fantastic to work with. Cant say enough. We will be back again and again as we have found a jewel.

Best Birthday trip!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Caribbean Castaway to celebrate two 60th birthdays. There were 5 couples and 2 adults children. We arrived at the villa and were greeted by Dave and Dawn, the managers. They were very helpful in showing us the villa and giving us suggestions on some of the activities we were interested in. They were just a phone or text away for any questions or problems. The villa was better than the pictures. It was clean and in good shape. It's a spacious home set up perfectly for adult couples. Everyone having their own king bed and ensuite makes assigning bedrooms easy and fair. The only difference between them is upstairs or main level. Everyone said their beds were comfortable. I had the Master where we enjoyed being a little away from the group. Our room was clean and spacious. Our king bed was extremely comfortable and the bedding was top quality. We were welcomed to CC with makings for a lite breakfast, a nice touch if you don't have time to go to grocery store. The kitchen had everything you need. We did enjoy having 2 refrigerators and never knew how great a ice maker can be. We did eat in every night since we like to cook. We spent almost all our time out on the large veranda with a great seating area and a large dining table. It was a great combination enjoying the weather outside but having an air conditioned kitchen to cook in. Having a pool to ourselves was a lot of fun. We did rent the Casita for the other birthday girl and she thought it was a great treat waking up listening to the surf. Overall our group had the best time. Joanne answered my emails and questions right away. She also set me up with Carrie to help me set up a charter sail on our birthday. I have been planning this trip a long time and Caribbean Castaway lived up to all my expectations. I would highly recommend this property to large groups adults and or families. There is something for everyone.

relaxing paradise

  • 5 of 5

This villa was fantastic! The common areas were open and airy with plenty of space for 12 of us to relax. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could possibly need, including lots of dry goods left from previous guests. The bedrooms were spacious, mattresses were comfy. The pool and grounds were beautiful. Can't describe how wonderful it was to step out in the mornings to enjoy the pool and fabulous views. The little beach was an excellent bonus with good snorkeling just a few steps away. The location, close to great beaches, Redhook, shops, restaurants, and the ferry to St John was also perfect. Property managers, Dawn and Dave were friendly and helpful. It was nice to know they were available but since everything was perfect, we didn't need them for anything more. I can't say enough good things. This was our 12th trip to St Thomas, and I wish we'd stayed here every time!
