Imagine your very own personal slice of Heaven for less than $185 per night/per person! Come experience the magic of Coral Gardens Beach Estate! Distinguished as a spectacular grand property, the estate combines the unique expression of luxurious living with modern Caribbean style design. Located toward the end of Peterborg, the dramatic Picara Point peninsula captures breathtaking down island views and extraordinary Magens Bay, presenting this exclusive two acre beachfront estate and ecological wonderland, perfectly situated between the Atlantic & Caribbean seas.

Upon being sequestered through its private electronic gate entry, you are greeted by a double palm canopy drive, landscaped with natural beauty. An expansive parking area accommodates up to six vehicles and also doubles as a basketball court. The villa’s fully air conditioned Main Level (First Floor) opens you to the grand foyer and commanding Great Room, perfectly framed by turquoise waters, significant mountain ranges and baby blue skies. Completing the Great Room is a substantial living & entertainment area featuring full audio, video, electronic gaming (PS3, Wii and Xbox), reading library, a well equipped kitchen and office nook, wet bar and expansive dining areas.

The Magens Bay Wing includes the Master Suite, and two other bedrooms, while the Picara Point Wing encompasses the Junior Master Suite, sleeping four, as well as one additional bedroom. The Pool and Beach Suite Level (Second Floor), only 12 steps down, offers 4 expansive King Suites with living and dining areas and can host up to an additional 20 guests.

Memorable 50th Anniversary Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Villa at Coral Gardens Beach Estate is a beautiful place to stay for a large group. Our family of 20 comfortably fit in the villa's 10 (of 11) lovely king size bedrooms, the majority with outstanding views of Magen's Bay. Listening to the gentle lapping of the waves against the rocky shore below was a delightful way to fall into sleep each night. Werner and his efficient staff were accessible for any of our needs and Werner went out of his way to provide special services for us including an exilerating boat ride in Triple Smooth to a private beach and a VIP shopping excursion downtown. Drew is a multi-talented "go-to-guy". He prepared the most delicious meals along with a small kitchen staff who were so accommodating and fun to be around that they seemed to be just part of our family group. Prepare for lots of stairs as the villa is four floors arranged on the side of a mountain but well worth the effort to get down to Magen's Bay to snorkel, the crystal blue pools or the outside bar and lounge area. The Secret Garden "cottage" on the property is a very unique and special place that we (just 2 or 4 of us) would love to come back to for a more quiet and intimate stay. Thanks again to Werner and his entire staff for making our trip so memorable.

Amazing in everyway!!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I were looking for the perfect place to get married. We decided on the one place we had stopped during a cruise and had always dreamed of visiting again. Of course, it was easy. St. Thomas!! We had a very small party, just 20 people. We wanted something intimate that would serve as both a thank you for coming and the most amazing vacation they’d ever experienced! A once in a lifetime, no hotel we found could provide that. We stumbled upon Coral Gardens and it was the best decision! The house is beautiful. The views are to die for. Werner and his amazing team are amazing! They were always available to assist with anything we needed, no matter large or small.

We did the welcome BBQ and it was delicious. Plenty of leftovers for a few days!! Then, the reception… I can’t recommend you go with the Caribbean reception dinner! It was delicious. I am not a seafood person, but they served seared tuna appetizer with this spicy sauce that was to die for. People are still talking about it! Maybe Werner will take pity on me and get his fellow Texan the recipe.. LOL. The pools are amazing, the snorkeling was great! We saw a barracuda, which luckily, Drew told us it’s the hall monitor of the sea! It’s so cool to just be able to look out and see such beauty!

I can’t recommend this place enough. I have to admit it was a tough decision picking a place all the way from Texas to St. Thomas, but I know I made the right decision!

I was looking for a place large enough for me and 18 of my friends and I found Coral Gardens Villa. I wanted somewhere that I would be proud to bring my friends and show off the beauty of my hometown and enjoy carnival 2016. When I say that this villa checked off all of my boxes in a place away from home. It had scenic views, perfect location, Immaculate decorations, tranquil atmosphere, beautiful breathtaking picture perfect views, spacious rooms, beautiful sunsets, and the list goes on. Words can't describe the look in my friends eyes when they say this place it was priceless. To top it off the owner went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. In my words this Villa was, Fabulous, Breathtaking, Amazing, and Gorgeous. This will be our Villa of choice every time we come to St Thomas.

Nothing is more Fabulous than this Villa in St Thomas, Virgin Island !!!!!!!!!!

40th Birthday Planning Trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Coral Gardens Estate over a long weekend in January. We were visiting Werner & his team to plan my husband's 40th birthday party which we will be held at the Estate in April 2016. We started planning this party since July 2015, and have been in touch with Werner since.

Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by Werner & given a tour of this gorgeous property. The views from this property of Magen's Bay, sunrise and sunsets are spectacular.

Every room is luxuriously furnished, & the beds are heavenly. The kitchens are well equipped with every appliance or kitchenware. Making any meal is a breeze. Werner has put tremendous effort and thought in the design, layout and furnishings of both properties, you will not be disappointed. In Secret Garden, the architecture has incorporated the natural boulders on the property, which is just amazing.

Since this was our first time in St. Thomas, Werner carefully architected a day to take us for an Island Tour, highlighting fabulous locations, restaurants, bars & party scenes that we will be visiting. After our tour we went out on his boat, Triple Smooth, which was an experience to die for. We visited Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Spit, & Willy T's. Triple Smooth - lives up to its name, she is a wonderful boat, and is an amazing ride.

Werner scheduled meetings for us with all his team members to thoroughly plan and organize all the events that we will be hosting at Coral in April. The entire process of renting the Estate, & planning a major event has been absolutely seamless with Werner and his team. They have all been so accommodating, always available to discuss anything, and have such brilliant ideas on how to make our trip for 50 of us in April a wonderful experience.

We highly recommend Coral Gardens not just as a property to stay at, but it is an experience that will change your perspective on vacationing. You must plan to stay here and have your next event here!

We can't wait to be back in April!

If you have a large group- you should definitely stay here! It is BEAUTIFUL and incredibly well run! We rented both Coral and Secret Gardens for our son's Bar Mitzvah , the week of Dec. 26, 2015. We had 31 people stay at the two houses and 56 people come to various parties at the house. People of all ages and many who did not know each other before the event. The two houses accommodated everyone perfectly- everyone had their own beautiful space and lots of privacy. The party and common areas were FANTASTIC! The houses themselves are spectacular, the views are breathtaking and everything you need is on hand- including Grills, coolers, umbrellas, loungers, snorkeling equipment... We all loved the pools on the properly, the beach, snorkeling right at the house and the close proximity to the beautiful beach at Meghan's Bay! Werner and his crew helped us plan a week of amazing events- each one was better than the next!!! Our guests were thrilled with all the dinners, the parties and the boat ride. Werner made everything easy to plan, he lined up all his people and they all delivered EVERYTHING that they said they would and more. We thought planning a week of parties away would be taxing and stressful but Werner and his crew took care of everything and many extras- including entertainment for the kids. I have only rave reviews of Werner (the owner of the house), Drew (our consierge) Americus (the driver - who shuttled 56 of us everywhere on the island!) Spraga- the chef Werner recommended for a few of our meals, Leslie - our party planner and Passion Fruit- the caterer we used for the main event. It was a truly memorable and wonderful week! We had high expectations, we are picky and we are used to staying at quality resorts and I am ecstatic to report that our expectations were all met and exceeded! Thanks again to Werner and his team- we will always remember this AWESOME week and hope to be back again for another happy occasion!!!!

Seniors Spring Break Trip with an Amazing SUNSET VIEW

  • 5 of 5

Where do you take 8 Senior Girls (with 22 other family members) for an unforgettable Spring Break trip? Magen's Bay, St. Thomas of course!

When you first arrive at Coral Gardens after a semi-harrowing trip from the airport via the narrow roads of St. Thomas, you are struck by the sheer size of this property. There are levels after levels, bedrooms after bedrooms, and kitchens and refrigerators and pools and a private beach. However, the most amazing feature is something that gets discovered as the sun begins to set on the first night of your stay...four levels of balconies facing the West! There are multiple perfect spots to enjoy the sparkling water as the light begins to fade. A true highlight of the Coral Gardens experience.

Werner and his crew provided some phenomenal meals and a fantastic trip to the BVI. Take advantage of those opportunities if you can! (The welcome BBQ and a meal with the private chef that could work ANYWHERE if he and his assistant didn't love making fantastic meals for groups like ours!)

Use Werner's recommendations on local restaurants, rental cars, excursions, beaches, etc...I think he knows everyone and everyplace on the island. Take a ride on TRIPLE SMOOTH (his boat) to anywhere he'll take you. Great experience and a great ride. Order pizza from a boat at Christmas Cove!

A Spring Break trip that will never be forgotten...thanks to Coral Gardens and Werner!
