About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 6. Each bedroom has ocean views and A/C.

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.

Vacation in a vacation!

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!

Stunning views! Pictures on web are very accurate. Linda and crew were great!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Papillon for a spring break trip. Having never been to The USVI, this was a great place to launch from to experience the island (and St. Johns) or to just hang out and admire the views in a tranquil setting. You do feel a bit isolated when at the villa, so don't expect a lot to do right around you unless you are willing to drive or walk some very hilly terrain. RENT A JEEP or small'll be glad you did. Megan's Beach was super easy to drive to (5 mins). Villa property was great!!!..and as advertised on VRBO. Pool set up was really nice. We had easterly winds the entire time, so mosquitoes and heat never seemed an issue. If you like a breeze, you will love Villa Papillon. Linda was great and answered all of our questions. Overall, we were most impressed with the views...and the binoculars got A LOT of use! Much to look at with the BVI's in the distance and occasional boats passing before you. Last day full rainbow was a perfect finale.

Pros: Views, Villa accommodations, Linda's help and communication, cleanliness, pool, breezes, fun books and pictures, etc. to browse, chime sound, comfortable beds, great towels, awesome outdoor furniture, mid-week cleaning, the welcome basket of goodies, secure feeling (gated community), lots of deck space to hang with others or be by yourself.

Cons: Really non..but if we had to nit pick re our experience on St. Thomas; lack of clarity where to get food. Do your homework prior to arriving. Cost U Less for bulk items, Moes in Red Hook for fresh fish and huge wine selection. We figured it all out about the time we had to leave. Lastly some things in the villa showing some age, but in a minor way...and none a deal breaker. Lastly, we took the jeep via a car ferry over to St. John's. Don't waste your time doing that as its a time killer...and parking once you are on St. John's is impossible at least during the busy season.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this lovely review. We are always very happy when our guests love staying at Villa Papillon and have a great time while in St. Thomas. You sure captured a spectacular rainbow over our deck with your daughter in the middle. Both, so beautiful. Look forward to seeing you all the near future. Sincerely, Linda Rayner Villa Papillon.

Glorious villa; everything you could ask for and more!!!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary as well as our 1st retirement vacation and couldn't have chose a better place for our 10 days in paradise. The pictures don't lie, as the views, anemities and features of the villa was spot on. In fact, it was difficult to leave VP to visit the rest of the island as we had everything we wanted there. We especially liked the rock shower as you could enjoy the incredible views while showering. Also, as we love to grill, we took advantage of the nice grill so that we could enjoy dinners under the stars.

We also were fortunate to be there during full moon and to watch it rise over St. John and light up the water was tremendous. You could also catch beautiful sunrises every morning to start another glorious day at VP.

Linda was gracious enough to meet us at airport and escorted us to her beatiful home and after a quick overview of the features of the villa, we were left alone to enjoy the complete privacy, beatiful views and all the amenities for the best vacation of our life.

We will definitely make this beatiful villa a "must stay again" !!!!!

Thanks Linda

5 Star! If there were 10 stars - I would make it 10 Stars

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week. The villa is spacious with incredible views. The online pictures do not even do it justice!

The villa is clean with a gourmet kitchen. The outdoor space provides ample space to relax, catch some sun, enjoy the great views and a dip in the pool! The villa is at the most 20 mins from anywhere on the island. 5 Mins from the beach. The villa is in a gated community that provides a security comfort. I look forward to our next trip! Its best to have a rental car rather than rely on a Taxis. Linda was great to work with and provided great direction and help while on the island!

Can't wait to go back!
