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.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good day Sir,



We made it back safely to Italy, but I wanted to personally thank you for allowing us to stay at your place. We had more than enough rooms and beds to accommodate everyone and their own personal preferences. We could tell that you and your team put a lot of thought into what a family coming on vacation would need, because we had everything we could have possibly needed. I also wanted to thank you for working with me financially; I know this is your business and I understand fully that you were not obligated to accept my offer, however, I am truly and deeply thankful you did. And for that, if ever you're in Italy, hit me up!



My little Italian place is not as fancy and exciting as yours, but, you will definitely have a place to lay your head while you're out visiting/exploring.



One more thing - while I was unpacking, I found a fork in my suitcase. I'm assuming my cousin did not put it back in the sink when he was done eating prior to us leaving for the airport, and quite frankly, I don't even know how he managed to put it in my bags. Please send me a bill for a brand new set, that's the least I could do.



Mr. Balady, once again, it was a pleasure doing business with you and we sure appreciated your hospitality.



Happy Easter to you and your family.

Very disappointed

  • 1 of 5

Communication up to the point we arrived at the property was great. But the condition of the property was very disappointing. To begin with, the pool was not working and full of algae. The deck furniture was either broken or rusted to the point where we were afraid to sit in it for risk of breaking. The property hadn't been cleaned outside and the BBQ grill looked like it had never been cleaned. The property only has AC in the bottom unit which can only be accessed by going outside the unit. In that unit, the bathroom light wouldn't stay on due to an electrical issue where the breaker continued to trip. (Even with all other lights and the AC off). The final issue was it is swarming with mosquitos. It was bad enough that we decided it was better to find new accommodations for our stay on st Thomas. Other than that, the interior was clean and reasonably nice. I did attempt to contact the owner reguarding the issues. He responded that he would work to resolve the issues but never heard back from Him.

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.
