Also don't worry about bringing beach towels they will be provided at the house.

Answer: No not to go to any of the US Virgin Islands but if you plan on doing a day boat trip to any of the British Virgin Islands you will need a passport.

FULL DESCRIPTION:

Blue Horizons Villa reflects the essence of paradise and dazzles the senses. It is located on the island of St. Thomas in the luxurious US Virgin Islands. The Villa is perched in a stunning fashion at the top of the highest mountain on St Thomas and is surrounded by lush tropical plantings and fruit trees. Blue Horizons Villa is just minutes from Magens Beach and many other beautiful white sand beaches are within 2 miles. This villa offers spectacular 300 degree panoramic views from St. John to the east, the beautiful Charlotte Amalie Harbor to the south and Puerto Rico to the west. At night the view lights up with a wonderful twinkling display of the harbor, town and cruise ships leaving port.

Blue Horizons Villa is a very private, friendly and spacious villa with cool ceramic tile and splashes of tropical color. The main level is comprised of a master suite and it's own bathroom. There are two other spacious bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds. The suite has its own bathroom and the other two upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom. From the main level you can walk directly out to a large covered gallery or to the wonderful pool for a refreshing dip. A staircase leads you down to the bottom level which contains a private queen bed suite with its own bathroom.

Blue Horizons Villa is located in one of the most discreet locations on the most developed and liveliest of the US Virgin Islands. St. Thomas Island is the recreational and commercial hub of the Virgin Island chain. Its capital Charlotte Amalie is a busy center of duty-free shopping, dining, pub crawling and resort hotels. While at Blue Horizons Villa you can enjoy the island in relative calm and take advantage of its many white sandy beaches and well-organized opportunities for sailing, swimming, scuba diving, windsurfing, kayaking and fishing.

The people who stay at Blue Horizons Villa enjoy the romance, the privacy and the serenity that our St. Thomas villa guaranties. From the Villa you will also have the opportunity to cast off and engage the big island and the countless vacation activities it offers. Blue Horizons Villa can make it possible for you to put lifestyle first and optimize your precious time in the tropics.

The house can comfortably sleep 9 guests in beds and more if you want to put kids on cushions or if you want to bring blow up mattresses.

About Louis Balady

My wife and I lived on the island for 4 years in the 90's and could never get it out of our blood so we decided to buy a house. We have two kids 9 and 14. Luckily we are able to get down to St Thomas for at least a month each year.

Louis Balady purchased this villa in 2007

Why Louis Balady chose Northside

I chose this location for my house for the incredible views, constant breeze and central location to everything.

What makes this villa unique

What we like the best is having group meals on the balcony with the cool breeze and great views. You cannot go to any restaurant in St Thomas and have nearly as good views as we have right from our decks. You truly have a 300 degree view from the balcony and the pool deck. Another bonus is the house is so high on the mountain the temperature is consistently 8-10 degrees cooler than down by the water. 66-70 at night and 74 to 83 during the day, could not ask for anything better.

I have also had many wedding/receptions at the house which lends itself to great pictures and there is enough seating for at least 20.

Comfortable, amazing views, great access

  • 5 of 5

Great location with incredible views. Comfortable house that easily accommodated our group of family and friends (total party of 8). The location was convenient to everything on the island, but you should plan to rent a car. During our one week stay we hired a boat and captain for great snorkeling in the BVI and USVIs. We also made the trip to Water Island and spent a day on the Zip Lines.

The kitchen was very good for how we used it - breakfasts in the mornings and cooking out on the grill in the evenings.

Sitting on the porch with the doors open and a breeze through the house and on the patio was a great way to start and end our day.

Fantastic family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic vacation to St. Thomas and Louis and the Blue Horizons Villa had a lot to do with it. Louis was great to work with, very responsive and a wealth of information on the home, the area and travel to the island in general. The whole family enjoyed their rooms opening up to a spectacular view, the pool was outstanding (and the Bluetooth speaker that the teenagers thoroughly enjoyed). Debi met us just as we had planned to lead us up to the home and was readily available for us if we had a quick question regarding the home.

The home was also nice and centrally located so if we wanted to go to any of the beaches, take the Ferry to St John, or enjoy any of the tourist activities happening on the island, everything was close by. Louis also provided lots of good tips of things to see and do. I highly recommend using this "travel guide" if it is your first trip to St. Thomas

The Best Spring Break Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect trip. The house, the owner and manager of this property were great. Very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the lay of the land. I was traveling with teenagers 14, 16, 17 and one preteen 12 and they all had a blast. The accommodations were perfect and there was even a roll away bed if we need more room. There was one wireless speaker everyone was fighting over and poolside toys as well as other equipment to enjoy courtesy of the owner. With this being my first experiences renting a vacation property and how great everything worked out I almost want to sale my timeshare.

Super easy to work with Louis to rent and Debi (the property manager) is an absolute gem. I would come back and stay at Blue Horizons again in a heartbeat. THANK YOU for offering such an amazing property!

Wonderful Birthday Trip Stay

  • 5 of 5

6 of us stayed at the house for about 4 days. The highlights of this house are the spectacular view, the rooms and space in the house, the pool, the deck space, and the location to the airport, restaurants, and beaches.

The drive up to the house was a real test of our driving skills at first, but you will find that is the case on the island in general so no big deal. By the next day going out and coming in we were good, we knew how to navigate our way to the house and into the driveway without much effort. Once you get to the house and look over the deck and see the view, the drive up makes so much sense and it is so worth it!

We ended up buying breakfast foods at the local grocery and taking that to the house (wouldn't recommend the Pueblo Supermarket --too expensive, but doable if you can't find the others). The kitchen is stocked with seasonings, cooking and eating supplies, and previous guests tend to leave things for the next group (pretty cool). Helps to cook in the morning so you don't have to worry about getting up and out early :). Make sure to stop at Sibs for dinner!!

The weather was so nice that my friends who stayed in the lower level suite didn't need to use the air conditioning, but it was nice to have the option. The fans in each room were efficient for those who needed them (I sure didn't, just opened the window).

They provided towels for showering and the pool. They even had games. Such a thoughtful set-up!

The folder with house and local information could use a little updating but still somewhat helpful nonetheless and should be reviewed before you plan (if you haven't already) some kind people left their coupons to various places!!

Overall, my personal favorite thing about this house was the view and getting to lay out on the balcony in the hammock watching the sun rise and the ships come in to dock!!

The experience was a wonderful one and we truly enjoyed ourselves, I would recommend this place for anyone who needs this amount of space. The house manager was responsive to our needs and the owner Louis was very flexible, knowledgeable, and helpful in the process. Truly a great find and a very Happy Birthday to ME!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views, felt very private, washer and dryer made the visit even better.

It was easy to get to most places on the island in 5-20 min.

I would definitely rent a car, it made the trip better.

The house is wonderful all around.
