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

  • 5 out 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 out 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!

Everything you need for a great vacation

  • 5 out of 5
The Beach House was amazing, really a charming island home. We spent a great two weeks here enjoying the views, eating all our meals outside, making the best of the private beach, and staring at the iguanas from all the outdoor showers! We felt extremely welcome here - the house had a ton of items (spices, cooking oil, sugar/flour, etc) that you don't always see in rental properties and allowed us to really enjoy the whole experience. Camille was always available when we had questions and made us feel at home without being intrusive at all.

The snorkeling just off the beach was amazing, and our whole family really enjoyed being able to just walk down the stairs to the beach. I thought we might miss having a private pool but actually having our own strip of beach was way better. For us the location of the house was perfect, away from all the super touristy stuff on the far east side of the island but close enough to some really awesome public beaches, stores, and restaurants.

Overall we had a great experience and will always have good memories of our time at The Beach House. We'd happily recommend it to anyone vacationing on St. Thomas.

Our teenagers were exhausted!

  • 5 out of 5
This place wore our kids out, which is amazing! They hardly turned on the TV at all. Pictures just don't do justice to the beauty of this place. The beach was a lot larger than I imagined and the deck was just simply huge with lots of room for us all to move around. We snorkeled every day and the storage shed by the beach had a nice variety of masks and fins that fit nicely. The reef is beautiful and we saw stingrays, cuddle fish, grouper, lobsters, sea urchins and barracuda. (Remember not to wear jewelry in the water. The barracuda have poor vision and think it is food.) We fished in the evenings and caught a lot of fish right from the shore. The boys loved it!

The outdoor showers are lovely and secluded. The iguanas will steal your soap, so best to take it in when you are done. A four wheel vehicle is recommended and I would also recommend that you arrange to have a day's supply of food and drink purchased in advance so you can really enjoy your first day and not feel rushed to go shopping.

There was a meteor shower for two days when we were there and the deck was the perfect place to have a glass of wine and watch the shooting stars. It was wonderful!

The roads on the island are a bit intimidating at first but driving on the Left was not as hard as I thought it would be. About day 3.. I was enjoying the driving. Having GPS is extremely helpful navigating the roads and AT&T is the main cell carrier. I have Verizon and so I didn't have service.

Also helpful is to know when the cruise ships are in port as the popular areas tend to get quite busy on those days. Plan to visit Magen's Beach on a day when they are not in port.

If you are considering booking this place, you won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Joy,
Thanks for the great review. We fell in love with the Beach House on our first visit in 2008. The beach and the snorkeling are amazing and the stars at night are just incredible. Thanks again and we hope you will come back and visit again.

Paradise

  • 5 out of 5
This house is absolutely amazing, it blew me away. It has amenities for people from all walks of life; scuba diving or snorkeling on a coral reef, sunbathing on a private beach, or just drinking beers watching the waves roll in on the deck. The house also has a boathouse on the beach which is stocked with all the things you could ask for on the beach; chairs, snorkeling gear, kayaks, and more. The house is secluded, giving you the chance to spend quality time with friends and family without interruption or unwanted noise from others. Even so it is still within reasonable driving distance of excellent restraints like 13 which is just up the street, or you can hop across the island to red hook for the night life.

INCREDIBLE Vacation Rental! Would love to stay there again!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at 'The Beach House' for a week long getaway and each and every one of us had a truly unforgettable stay there. The owners are extremely responsive and understanding from the very beginning.

We should add that some members of our party were worried about the validity of rentals listed on VRBO based on comments posted on various websites, but we can definitively say that the rental was as described. The description and photos of the house and property perfectly capture what you will experience there, so there is no need to be skeptical in the least.

Advantages: (where do i begin!)
(1) The private secluded beach has to be one of the BEST beaches we have ever been on. Minimal, if any, rocks on the beach, vibrant and thriving coral (perfect for snorkeling and taking underwater photos/videos!) just literally feet from the shoreline. Some of us even preferred our beach to some of the public beaches on the island that are more well-known and ranked amongst the top beaches in the world. The owners also maintain a well-stocked shed on the beach so you will not have to bring/rent aquatic equipment such as snorkels and kayaks, which is a huge plus. You can come and go to the beach whenever you like--no need to hop in a car or pay any entrance fees like the public beaches!

(2) The house is excellently maintained and perfect for the nine of us who stayed there. It has nearly everything you would want while on the island. The kitchen is well-stocked with all the appliances and tools you would ever need for cooking small or large meals for the whole group. The bedrooms accommodated us all comfortably without compromise.

Things to be aware of:
(1) This is more a comment about the island than anything, but the roads are as advertised, so you will definitely need an SUV with 4WD/AWD and high ground clearance, but the owners gave us a heads up so we weren't surprised upon arrival.
(2) There is only one true indoor shower (located conveniently in the main house). The other showers are located outdoors. This might seem like a disadvantage but it turned out to be just fine. You still have some privacy even while showering outdoors and you even have the advantage of 'being one with nature' if you use one of those showers.

Overall, we had a fantastic stay there and will definitely recommend this rental property to our friends and family! There are a number of island attractions, but don't be surprised if you spend your whole day on this magnificent property!

Thanks for the wonderful review. The Beach House is all about "the beach" and the reef. We try to be very up front with everybody about the house and it really speaks for it's self.

A walk down the steps!
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.
