Villa Papillon is a luxurious 3 bedroom villa comprising of two multi-level pavilions embracing a private courtyard and swimming pool. Built right into the 13' x 21' private pool is a separate, deep hot tub which will comfortably seat 6. Perfect for family vacations.
Each of the 3 bedrooms has dramatic ocean views. The upper bedroom features a king size sleigh bed with a Tempur-Pedic mattress, real bamboo floors and a vaulted ceiling. The lower bedroom has a king size Ernest Hemingway bed with an 18' thick Serta pillow top mattress. Floors are French terra cotta tiles. The third bedroom is situated in a separate pavilion in the courtyard. It features a California king size bed (4' longer) with Serta pillow top mattress. It has a massive glass and pebble bathroom and shower. Each bedroom has LCD TV's, satellite with all the premium channels, air-conditioning in all bedrooms, and our course, dramatic ocean views.
What to look for when renting a luxurious villa:
1. Does it have a fully automatic generator that will run the entire property during the power outages that are common in the Caribbean? Villa Papillon has!
2. Is there a hot tub? Our is built right in the pool.
3. What are the appliances like? Villa Papillon has only top end appliances: 48' SubZero fridge/freezer; Viking gas stove with indoor BBQ; Miele dishwasher; Viking outdoor BBQ.
4. What's the furnishings like? Villa Papillon has top end designer furniture. Carpets are real, hand knotted oriental. Outdoor furniture is solid teak from Westminster. The property is decorated with original paintings and antiquities, fascinating memorabilia and an eclectic collection of 'wow' books.
5. Should you require any help, the onsite property managers will glad to assist you in any way possible.
6. It's all in the details. We recently tore out the wood deck railings and replaced them with aluminum and stainless steel cable. Why? Because when lounging on the deck, we found that the wood railings took away from the view. The stainless steel cables now give you an uninterrupted 'down island' view.
If you appreciate beauty, understand value, then this is the villa for you.
Words are not enough to describe the Villa Papillon, it is even more spectactular in person, and the pictures are incredible. You have to experience the winds blowing off the water, the waves crashing below, the sun beaming on your face, and the stars glowing at night. This was our site for our Spring break vacation, with three teenagers who love the water. It is a good spot since it is only about 20 minutes from Red Hook, where we had excursions from ( diving, snorkeling and boating around the USVI and BVI. Everyone was very nice and professional, from Linda ( the owner) to Warren( the driver )to Doreen ( the housekeeper). The house is " a home" with so many great books to peruse, we never had our TV's on in our bedrooms, we just sat out side in the hot tub, or in the living room and talked and relaxed. It was a perfect vacation, for relaxing and experiencing St thomas & St john. You were close enought to town to experience the " tourist spots" but were just remote enough to feel like you were in paradise. We all enjoyed the Villa Papillon, and would recommend it to all.
Thank you for the use of your beautiful property. Villa Papillion is a fantastic property. It felt like we were staying in a luxury resort and a friend's house all at the same time. The view is absolutely wonderful. The pictures posted of your property, although beautiful, don't do it justice, especially when you are witnessing them in person.
We were a party of 6 people and it was very comfortable for all. There was plenty of space for all to spend time together and have privacy when desired. We used the pool and spa every day and my wife and I had coffee every morning while taking it that view. Morning coffee at home is leaving something to be desired compared to that.
We really enjoyed all the property. The house is lovely. There are many great pieces of art and other things that the owners have collected that added a unique experience to our stay. It was great looking at things and wondering where things came from.
Linda was a most gracious host. We really wished we had an opportunity to meet her and her husband, Mike but they were out of town for that week. Linda arranged for Warren to meet up with us and show us to the property. After a walk through with Warren, we were left to start enjoying our time at the villa.
Linda responded quickly to any question I had at any time. She even recommended a fantastic jewelry store in Charlotte Amelie for us to shop at. Thanks for the introduction to George and his staff at House of Rajah. Linda let George, the owner know, that we would be in to the store on our trip and my family and I were treated as if we were old friends.
This was our first trip to St. Thomas so we didn't really know the layout of the island and how the roads were. Linda was more than happy to give us suggestions and directions. We had rented a van from Avis at the airport and were able to find our way around after awhile. My advice to anyone who would like to stay at Villa Papillion is not to rent a vehicle, but to use taxis. The villa is away from all the tourist stuff but that leads to a lot of peace and quiet. Linda can refer you to Warren for taxi service. We used him to take us into Charlotte Amelie one evening as I was not interested on driving at night. Warren was dependable and informative.
Villa Papillion was wonderful for a family of different ages to vacation. Everything is beautiful and the owners have put much thought into what you need available for a fabulous say and vacation.
Thanks, Linda and Mike.
We stayed here as two couples celebrating our 25th anniversaries and this place was absolutely perfect.
Mike and Linda were gracious hosts that led us here from the airport, made sure we knew how to use everything, and had a gift of food and wine waiting. We had ample privacy between the home and guest house to just enjoy time alone too.
The views from the deck are spectacular and sunrise is the prettiest time of day. The proximity to Megan's Bay was excellent.
We had an awesome time and made memories we will look back on and smile for years to come.
This villa was amazing! We stayed over thanksgiving and just had an incredible time. The villa is privately situated so you get some really dramatic sunsets and sunrises from the pool deck, and the main house is laid out very well for entertaining. It rained a few days during our stay and we found ourselves at the villa with more than enough activities to keep both the kids and adults smiling.. Highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to USVI!
Spectacular Views in every direction. Space and amenities were a 10 and the deck and outdoor living was simply amazing. Comfortable, Fun, easy to get around, safe and 5 minutes to Megan's Bay....
We had a great time at the villa.
Linda was vary easy to deal with.
she help us with everthing we ask her and her staff were also great.
we would go a second time .
