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.

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.

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!

Fantastic place for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12, comprised of six couples absolutely loved our stay at Caribbean Castaway! The home had all the amenities we could ask for, with plenty of space for our large group. Joanne was wonderful to work with before hand, always very prompt in any correspondence. Dawn and Dave are also great, they met us at the airport and were available for recommendations or anything else while on the island. The outdoor living area, pool, and oceanfront were all utilized all week long. Plus the ability to walk to two other beaches was awesome. The Sonos sound system is a really nice addition to the home as well! Great snorkeling right out in front of the home made it easy for everyone to enjoy. The proximity to Red Hook was another huge benefit. It made going out to dinner or grabbing a few things from the grocery store very convenient. Thanks again Caribbean Castaway, we had an unforgettable week!

All that is advertised and more!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property! Our extended family of 13 (three generations - ranging in age from 3 to 62) had an absolute wonderful time. It was the perfect place for all of us – whether relaxing by the pool, snorkeling off the point, throwing Frisbees on the lawn, cooking in the kitchen, or eating around the huge table. There were plenty of options for people to gather in small or large groups - and plenty of places to enjoy the sun or lounge in the shade.

The pool was perfect for our toddler who could walk out on the extended shallow end, the teenagers who had plenty of room to swim and play, and the adults who floated peacefully on the surface.

Caribbean Castaway has the best stocked kitchen I've ever seen in a rental. There were plenty of utensils, plates, glasses and cups for all of us. Every appliance we could have wanted was there, the choice of spices was wonderful, and the layout allowed several of us to work together. The outdoor grill was large enough to cook enough for our entire group and the only problem was choosing whether to eat on the verandah or inside. There are several options for shopping – all relatively close to the house.

The rooms were comfortable and well appointed. The SONOS sound system was wonderful and added to the atmosphere. The selection of DVDs was terrific and, no matter the age, everyone found some movies they enjoyed.

The snorkeling was absolutely amazing. The coral was breathtaking and we can’t begin to count the number of beautiful fish we saw. In addition to the ubiquitous parrotfish, butterflyfish, sergeant majors, sand divers, snappers, wrasses, jacks, etc., we saw some species we hadn’t seen elsewhere during previous trips to St. Thomas including scrawled filefish, trunk fish, porcupine fish, squid, octopi and moray eels. Other than a day trip to St. John, we did all our snorkeling right off the point and were never disappointed.

We also loved looking up at the stars at night and seeing numerous constellations and the Milky Way. The house has a telescope – but we just stood on the lawn and enjoyed the night sky with the unaided eye.

Our experience was similar to others who have pointed out that dealing with the owners and property managers was wonderful.

Indeed, the house was everything advertised and so very much more.

Our family of 7 had one of the best vacations ever. Carribean Castaway is even more beautiful than what the pictures show. Joanne and Ron were excellent owners to work with. Dave and Dawn were so helpful and even had the villa decorated for Christmas with a live tree for our arrival. We wanted for and needed nothing. The view from the great room was breathtaking. Hope to be able to return soon.

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

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!!
