Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Northside - The Beach House

Main House 2 Bedroom 2 And 1/2 Baths , Cottage 3 Bedrooms One Bath. Sleeps 10

The beach house is a unique property on st. Thomas. If privacy is what you're looking for the beach house is the place for you. This magnificent property is located 40 feet above sea level, on three acres with 700 feet of shoreline where a wooden stairway leads you to a small, completely secluded beach.

When calm the snorkeling and diving is some of the most pristine on the island. When the seas are rough you can enjoy a dip in the hot tub or bask in the warmth on the huge deck while you watch and enjoy the surf. Perfect oceanfront living!

The beach house is the perfect place to have your wedding, write a book, paint a seascape, or simply relax and enjoy an incredible, fun family vacation.

The beach house consists of a main house with two bedrooms and a quaint three bedroom detached cottage.

Proximity to fun things to do: to visit beautiful magen's bay is a 20 minute drive

To reach the east end of st. Thomas and the ferry boats to st. John it is about 30-35 minute drive.

Downtown shopping is only 15-20 minutes.

Weddings, parties, or large gatherings: the beach house will accommodate up to 50 people. All tables, flatware, china, dishes, and glassware for the event must be rented or provided by your caterer. We must have details of all plans well in advance of the event, including wedding personnel and/or catering persons who will be at the villa for your function. Guests will be held completely responsible for any damages, missing items, and will be charged if their caterer/chef does not complete a full clean-up of the property inside and outside, including removing all trash from the villa property.

Cancellations: if you cancel more than 45 days prior to your arrival date, 80% of your total deposit and advanced payment will be refunded to you and 20% will be retained as liquidation damages. If you cancel within 45 days of the arrival date, you will forfeit the full advance payment and damage/reservation deposit. Early departure does not warrant any refund of rent or deposit.

Why Robert Elliott chose Northside

Annette and I honeymooned in St.Thomas in 2007 and found the Beach House in 2008. We have spent every anniversary since at the house, and were fortunate enough to be able to purchase the house from the past owner of over 35 years. The Beach House is truly a special place.

What makes this villa unique

This home is one of very few on St. Thomas with it's own private, secluded beach. When we stay at the home ourselves, it's like we're stealing away on a short vacation ourselves.

The Beach house St.Thomas was amazing

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house! I enjoyed my stay and my wedding was perfect! I'm originally from St . Thomas so I knew my way back and forth but the beach house made me feel like I was on my own little private island ( I guess that's because I love the fact that we had a private beach ) Camille was amazing and ALWAYS attentive! Mr. Steve I would like to thank you again !!!! My husband and I plan to return every year to celebrate our anniversary.

Fabulous Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

The Beach House at Mail Bay is outstanding, unique, memorable and one-of-a-kind. The view from the large deck is incredible. We enjoyed a double rainbow arching over the neighboring island on our first evening and fabulous stars in the evenings. On days with calmer seas, the snorkeling right below the house in Mail Bay is terrific: just you and the coral reef. Mail Bay, literally at the bottom of the steps from the house, is beautiful, with nice sand and a wonderful hammock and swing chair. We stayed for 2 weeks over the New Years holiday and never saw another human on the beach. The resident iguana and other wildlife made appearances at both the beach and on a tree near the deck. The Villa Manager, Camille, is knowledgeable, responsive, fun and a real asset to a great vacation. The house and cottage are as represented, fully stocked with all amenities, from innumerable quality beach towels to a kitchen with plenty of cookware and dishes,spices and condiments. The one lane road to the house is challenging, with significant ruts and numerous switch-backs, but it is manageable with a four wheel drive vehicle. We felt that the drive down to the house added to the ambiance and island authenticity of the property, but it probably isn't for everyone. We highly recommend the house, the villa manager and the owners, who are responsible and generous with their beautiful home, which is truly a home, not a "rental." We had a fabulous family vacation at the Beach House and would stay there again.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days here over thanksgiving with 5 adults and 2 children and could not have had a better time. The house was well maintained with lots of extras not found at other rentals. Camille met us at the airport and took us to a grocery store that had all we needed, she truley is an asset to the property. Having your own private beach with great snorkeling is awesome. The house is well equipped with appliances and cookware. Anything you could need at the beach is already there.Getting to the house is one of the best parts of being there.

Paradise Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults including a two year old and four month old spent one week at The Beach House. From the moment we stepped through the door we were in love with the location. The house and all photos are exactly as described online. Camille who met us at the airport was a wealth of knowledge, very sweet and a true gem as property manager. The house has everything you need and more. The views from all five bedrooms are amazing. The pocket beach was much larger and nicer than we anticipated. More than ample amount of beach toys. Definitely take the advice on car rental. You will need high clearance SUV or jeep to navigate the roads. People on the island are very friendly, Beaches are the most beautiful we've seen anywhere and food is outstanding.

The Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This property was beautiful. We had a great time here. We had all the comforts of home and much more. The house manager was great to work with, as well as the car rental people. They went out of there way for us. I would highly recommend this house to anyone.

Great family week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 1 week at the Beach House and we had a great time. We had been to St.Thomas on a cruise ship a few years back and the island was so beautiful that we wanted to come back!

At the airport, the property manager Camille could not be there but she sent Nathan to pick us up, bring us to a grocery store and guide us to the house. He did a great job and him and Camille were available all week for any questions or problem we had. Every little problems we had were fixed quick. The drive to the house from the main road is very rough and we were happy we rented 4x4 cars and that we had someone to follow! But it is worth it because the view is spectacular, the property very secluded and the beach amazing.

We were 10 in total (6 adults, 3 kids and 1 infant), and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house is actually 1 main house with 1 master bedroom on main floor and 1 bedroom under the main floor, and a guest house with 1 bedroom on bottom floor and 2 connecting bedroom (jack and jill) on the top floor. Me and my husband came with our 3 years old toddler and our 9 month old. We chose the communicating bedrooms on the top floor of the guest house to hear the kids if they needed us. It was the best choice for us even though it only has an exterior shower, which is not the easiest to use with a young baby! Also, the house do not provide a crib or a high chair so I brough a portable high chair and a traveling bed for the baby.

The house is not the most modern or luxurious but it is comfortable and we definitely spent most of our time outside. The kitchen is well equiped and all kind of spices and food are available to cook (so dont buy any!). We had most of our meals outside on the terrace. There is also a laundry room (with washer and dryer).

Having our own private beach was amazing and we spent most of our time swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. It was great with young children cause we were able to let them run around without being worried that they would bother others or to loose them in a crowd. The kids had a great time (and so did the adults!) The storage shed at the beach has all the equipment to enjoy the beach and the coral reef (chairs, masks, tubas, palms, water shoes, etc.). We did see large iguanas, along with pelicans, hermit crabs, lizards, and tons of fish in the water.

We built lifetime memories for all of us! Our only regret is that it was over too quick! We are definitely considering going back but for at least 2 weeks!

Car: necessary

There are very few rentals on St. Thomas with their own beach and privacy. The Beach House is one of these. Part of the joy of the house is its privacy. We are one mile down a windy road that is part of the adventure of being there. While we are part of the Caret Bay neighborhood the house is nestled in the corner of its three acre property and you can neither see nor feel the presence of any of our neighbors.

Other Activities: Kayaking

Golf: Mahogany Run Golf Course is a beautiful 18 hole course in a spectacular setting.
