Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in East End
Villa -- 5 Bedrooms -- 5.5 Bath- w queen & full sleep sofas sleeps up to 14
Perched on the edge of a cliff, overlooking the undeveloped island of Great St James, Cabrita Cliff House is one of the newest additions to the St. Thomas repertoire of fine Villas.
From the moment you open the doors you are swept to the sea by the alluring infinity pool and panoramic view.
Waves swirl dramatically on the rocks below. You could watch them for hours. A spiral staircase leads you down the cliff to the second level accommodations: Trade Winds blow almost endlessly around and through the house. Although the villa is fully air-conditioned, you probably do not want to use it, especially if you like being lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. We love to watch turtles and tarpon on the reef below and seabirds flying by (we're are at pelican height) not to mention para-sailors from the Ritz Carlton, which is a 5 minute ride away with its fine dining, shops and spa.
America's Cup Suite Amenities: The America's Cup Suite is located downstairs. It has a separate, outside staircase to enter or is accessible from upstairs via a spiral staircase. The views are beautiful and the Suite is very quiet and private, truly a getaway within a getaway. The A.C. Suite has a full mahogany and stainless kitchen with granite counter-tops, a dining room/ living room with a full sized sofa bed and a king-sized bed in the separate bedroom.
There is a private bath as well. It is adjacent to 'Australia.,' separated by large, arched mahogany doors. This arrangement is very suitable to a couple with small children, who would like ''en suite' at night or with older children that they would like immediately next door. 'Australia' is also convenient for a nanny.

About Walter and Jane Feddersen
We are avid sailors and love swimming and diving. The Virgin Islands are the perfect place for these pastimes.
My husband is a builder/developer and 46 year resident of St. Thomas who sailed here from Hamburg, Germany. He came out of retirement to build CCH and I've never seen a man happier in his work. We opened the doors to delighted guest on Dec. 26th 2006.
I'm originally from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and have always been an 'island girl' at heart. This was my first decorating experience from scratch. Each piece of furniture was made in Bali. Giving each room a theme lessened the huge task. The Haus is over 8,000 square feet! We have suites named, appropriately, Antilles, Africa, Asia, Australia and the America's Cup Suite.
My husband and I travel extensively and we're always scouting for somewhere else we might like to live. Every time we fly back and see our tiny island coming into view, we're so happy to call St. Thomas 'home.'
Walter and Jane Feddersen purchased this villa in 2006
Why Walter and Jane Feddersen chose East End
We bought the piece of land a few years earlier on what happened to be our jogging route. I told my husband that I thought it was the last great view on the East End of St. Thomas. You will, too, if and when you stay there. I usually do the orientations for our guests and I just love to see their expressions when they walk in the door!
