About the property

5BR Oceanside sleeps 10 with the sound of the ocean in your ears, great gardens

Casa Bougainvillea is located on Cabrita Point, a peninsula on the east end of St. Thomas. Our house is nestled among foliage and over two hundred bougainvillea plants. There are several fruit trees bearing rewards.

Set seaside, and edged on its own rock and coral beach on turquoise Great Bay, this pristine and beautifully landscaped, private estate offers three air-conditioned bedrooms on the light and airy upper level, plus two more, completely air-conditioned, one-bedroom suites poolside -- on the ground level.

Enjoy the breathtaking views of Little St. James Island and Current Cut. Listen to the gentle surf; watch the spectacular yachts go by.

An electronic security gate marks the entry to spectacular Caribbean gardens with sculpture, an aqua freshwater pool, an open-air gazebo with a gas barbecue, a lily pond with waterfall, and fountains.

A spacious, elegant great room features cathedral ceilings, air-conditioning, and colorful artwork. It provides relaxed seating and entertainment areas -- and opens onto a covered verand

At Casa Bougainvillea you can enjoy alfresco dining, a cocktail, yacht-watching, or just relaxing with a good novel. The villa has five televisions and VCRs which all are serviced by cable.

This screened and fully air-conditioned villa is well-designed and serene. It's the perfect locale for a memorable vacation in the sun.

Follow a path through the gardens to the blue ocean's edge for easy access to wonderful snorkeling on live reefs -- just outside Casa Bougainvillea. Casa Bougainvillea is well located on the east end -- only minutes from the ferry to beautiful St. John. Grocery shopping is very convenient, as are some of the best restaurants on St. Thomas.

Casa Bougainvillea is wonderful for families or friends traveling together who each desire the privacy of their own accommodations.

Taxi service is available, but a rental car is advisable since Casa B is located on Cabrita Point. You'll can be met at the airport (20 minutes away) and shown to your villa, Casa-b.

The villa is only four minutes from the ferry to St. John. There are several restaurants in the small town of Red Hook and a grocery store - marina market. The Mahogany Run golf course is only a few minutes from Casa Bougainvillea. We suggest you make day trips to other beaches on St Thomas. It helps you appreciate how nice just sitting at Casa B can be.

Maid service can be provided mid-week. A damage deposit of $500 is required. A 10% VI hotel tax will be added to your rental rates.

Because Casa B i s located right on the water's edge the snorkelling is as good as anywhere. Guests have reported seeing spotted eagle rays, turtles, octopus, squid and many varieties of fishes. There are also live coral and sea fans. Many times you will be able to see large starfish and large conch. The water's are protected so it is illegal to remove any sea life from the waters on the beach at Casa Bougainvillea. It is this policy that keeps the reef so vibrant and full of life. Thank You for behaving.

We have recently added a solar panel system to the roof of the villa to be more green and decrease your carbon footprint when you stay at Casa-b. Your help in conservation of electricity by turning off air-conditioning when not in use and conserving water usage as much as possible is greatly appreciated.

About Wendy or Larry

We have been travelling to St Thomas for many years. We decided to purchase Casa Bougainvillea so we could do family vacations and have friends visit at any time but also to available a wonderful home for anyone to bring their family and friends.

Wendy or Larry purchased this villa in 2005

Why Wendy or Larry chose East End

We purchased Casa Bougainvillea as a place we would eventually like to live. St Thomas is such a wonderfful island with all the fine dining and great beaches. There are also surprisingly lots of cultural activities to take advantage of. The water sports are refreshing and can be exhilerating and the best sailing in the world happens in the BVI, just a short hop from Red Hook. The community spirit we have enjoyed while on extended visits to St. Thomas and Casa-B have reassured us we have chosen wisely for our future home in paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt a fantastic holiday in a great villa with all the luxuries of home. Location wise was excellent for the snorkeling just in front of the villa - saw many fish, turtles and even a nurse shark. Short walk to sandy beaches. Also a good kick off spot for St. John. Villa is a few kilometers from the shops and some distance from town (this was a positive). Also dealing with the owner and his staff in St. Thomas could not have been better. Overall, good value for money and we would go back without question.

Coud not have been better

  • 5 of 5

Visited for only a few nights but what a place. Location is right on the water and close to Red Hook for groceries and bars. Nicely furnished for an island paradise. Just as described and the staff was accommodating. Gardens are magnificent considering they just had 2 hurricanes. Could not have asked for more but i am sure they would have delivered. Having more than one kitchen was awesome and the different areas to sit in the gardens made for nice separation. Certainly a return trip is in our future.

a hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

The Casa is a great spot to get away and enjoy the tranquility of the islands. St Thomas is realtively urban in feel but the Casa Bouganvilla is secluded enough to make it feel like you are all alone!

Excellent private beach and beautiful grounds

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Casa-B in July for a week to celebrate my wife's birthday. Reservation was easy, and the owner was very accommodating. The owner had staff to greet us when we arrived, and showed us around - very impressive! The villa was neat and clean and had all the amenities you would need to prepare meals. The pool was a plus, and the flower gardens and landscaping was relaxing to walk through. The private beach was a favorite for us, as some of the best snorkeling is within steps from the villa. Very beautiful and relaxing place to stay, close to the grocery, restaurant's, and market. We will definitely go back again!

Casa B is a great place to be in St. Thomas

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son, daughter-in-law, grandson and I spent 10 days at Casa B. The property is located on a secluded point away from downtown, but close to Red Hook, a small town with everything you need including many great swimming and snorkeling beaches. We went to a different beach every day then came back to the house in the afternoons for pool swimming and lounging around. The house is large and spacious with all amenities. I particularly liked the outdoor shower. We were met at the property when we arrived and the owner's representative gave us a tour of the house and told us about Red Hook and where to go for groceries, dining, snorkeling, etc. There were magazines and other information in the house that described the beaches and other islands. The house and lot were clean and well kept. We really enjoyed that the house is secluded and the background noise was the ocean waves hitting the coral beach. We cooked out several nights and spent evenings and nighttime sitting on the upper deck visiting and listening to the ocean surf. We took a day trip to St. John's, the ferries leave from Red Hook, that was very convenient. Overall we had an excellent vacation and staying at Casa B helped make it that way!

Owner's Response: A hearty thank you for enjoying our paradise. Anyone who enjoys your review will gladly book our villa for their vacation. Truly hope to hear from you in the future. Our favorite spot is also the upper deck listening to the surf splashing on the shoreline. Thanx for enjoying.

A perfect spot for vacation

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home, clean and spacious. Great room and kitchen area perfect for family and friends to be together while separate living areas offer plenty of privacy. Pool deck, gazebo and beach offer perfectly relaxing and comfortable vacation time. Close to restaurants and shopping, too. Loved it and will be back

located at casa bougainvillea
Car: necessary

Casa Bougainvillea is located on the most activity laden of the US Virgins Islands. There are many restaurants within a short drive from Casa B. We provide mid-week maid service during your stay. The best thing I can say about Casa B is location, location, location. Because Casa B is located right on the water's edge there is easy access for snorkelling on our reef, swimming kayaking in my kayak or just floating. The 2 grocery stores are close by to get the things you need. Because Casa B is located off the beaten path, your privacy and quiet are maintained. Hope to hear from you soon.

Other Activities: kite surfing, relaxing, sunbathing, tanning
