BareFoote Estate is located within the prestigious community of The Preserve at Botany Bay. This gated community spans 400 acres over the West End of St. Thomas and is home to three secluded beaches. BareFoote Estate is situated on an 8 acre parcel of land. The home’s architecture is influenced by historic Caribbean plantation houses of the 18th and 19th centuries. Spacious terraces wrap around 3 sides of the house. On these terraces are 13 pair of French Doors, custom made on island by craftsmen specializing in historic reproductions. The jalousies (interior wood shutters) were also made locally in the historic manner and allow the breeze to flow through the house while providing shade in the heat of the day. BareFoote is close to all three beaches, Sandy Bay, Botany Bay, and Mermaid's Chair.
This property far surpassed everything I could have expected in St. Thomas. The saltwater infinity pool was where I spent most of my time, but the adequate amounts of lounge furniture and nearby private beaches made it so we never had to go far for an amazing experience. This location will MAKE your stay in St. Thomas, and you will find yourself wondering why you would ever want to leave in order to go to some of the worse-off tourist-y beaches.
Immediately upon arrival, I felt completely at relaxed and at peace. BareFoote is truly a piece of heaven tucked away in a secluded corner of St. Thomas. The estate is a quick drive from the airport (15-20 minutes) and then you're in your own piece of paradise. The home is beautifully and classically decorated. The kitchen was clearly designed by someone who loves to cook, because everything is top of the line and fully stocked with more cooking supplies and equipment than one could ever use. There are plenty of wine glasses, china (both casual and fine), and related amenities. I truly felt at home and didn't want for anything during my time there. The surrounding beaches are gorgeous and often deserted-- it's almost like having the island to yourself. Highly recommended!
Everything is perfect in the elegant home by the sea. From the gracious floor plan, the impeccable finishes and well-conceived situation of the house, you feel welcome, pampered and spoiled by the amenities and appointments of this special place.
The porches catch the sun and breezes off the Caribbean and the sunset isn't to be missed with a glass of wine and friends. The kitchen is thoroughly supplied and outfitted for entertaining or for dinner for two. There's sun galore around the pool and an infinity pool that seems to spill into the ocean below.
Each bedroom is generous in proportions and the interior design throughout is calming, lovely and peaceful. Public rooms flow into one another and there are doors on every side to cool and welcome in the morning sun and the evening sunset.
We've stayed here several times and can never wait till we can return again!
We were at land's end when heaven began. The Barefoote Estate is at the gated Botany Bay reserve. a magnificent expanse of island beauty at the far west end of St. Thomas, and the perfect rendezvous for eight friends gathered from across the country and nearly four decades. The very private seaside Estate sent a welcoming breeze along the tree lined lane, and gardens framed the warmly elegant Danish Colonial home against the backdrop of a horizon broken only by a few distant islands. The home faithfully mated luxury and architectural style, offering each couple a very generous suite, and ours on the second level featured a high ceiling, ample closets, king size bed, large bathroom, and most importantly plenty of windows and a private balcony to enjoy the cliff side views and cooing sea breezes. The decor is a study throughout the home in comfort, taste, and authenticity to the island's plantation heritage, and every imagined amenity is there--from kitchen conveniences to TV lounge, and specially appointed children's bunk room. The home is faithful to the island's special allure for outdoor living, with spacious veranda, masonry grill, plush seating, and ample dining space either on the porch or more formally just inside. The private pool overlooks the sea from the entire estate's perch above the cliffs, where glorious sunsets gave way to star studded skies. Away from the Estate but still on the very private grounds of the Preserve, the beaches and surf invited exploration and boogey boarding, with nary another soul in sight. In all of this, that we longingly think back on as the Barefoote experience," shoes were optional, but smiles were not.
This is a wonderful place, with a spectacular setting. It is not one of those places that looks great in the pictures and then you are disappointed when you see it. Quite the opposite. It is totally private and graciously appointed. There really are 4 Master Suites, all equally nice, and another large bedroom and bath with multiple beds. The house is comfortably and elegantly furnished and has everything you could possibly want available. The outdoor areas are simply heavenly for relaxing, conversation, and reading and the eating area on the porch makes dinner at sunset a wonderful experience.
Any type of activity is within reach at Barefoote Estates but a really special part of the experience is that it is your own private part of the world and you will not even see anyone else unless you want to. A most relaxing place!
The kitchen is generously equipped by a serious chef. The dishes, linens and other amenities are first class. It is very clean and well maintained and the owners have thought of everything. The infinity pool is lovely and the view is as nice as any spot in the whole Caribbean.
You will not be disappointed.
While set in the gracious seclusion of Botany Bay, offering views of unspeakable beauty with 180 degree views of the ocean and, in the distance, Puerto Rico, Barefoote Estate offers easy 20 minute access to Charlotte Amalie and the north side of the island, restaurants and shopping. The absolutely perfect, deserted private beaches of Botany Bay are only minutes from the house. However beautiful, the pictures of the residence and its surroundings hardly do it justice but the description of the property is quite accurate in detail. In every way, we found it clean and well maintained and the customer service by caretakers was exceptional. Having enjoyed Barefoote with our family, I would strongly recommend the experiences it offers to friends and relatives.
BareFoote is within the prestigious community of The Preserve at Botany Bay on the West End of St. Thomas. This gated community has access to three of St. Thomas's most gorgeous and most remote beaches. The community has many sidewalks to walk and exercise. At the Estate, you can enjoy pooside lounging or reading a book on the outdoor terrace. BareFoote also boasts a front row seat to the evening sunsets.
