Exceptionally Breathtaking and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a spacious place for a large group, look no further.

Serendipity gives you that and more. My two sisters and I planned a wonderful vacation for a week to St. Thomas, USVI. We stayed at the most beautiful, spacious and private villas I've ever had a chance to stay at, and having a great property manager available to answer all your needs is a big welcome. We celebrated our mother's 80th birthday by bringing her to St. Thomas where her family is from. She enjoyed her time with her 7 grandkids (ages 2-17) and 3 son-in-laws. The Serendipity Villa gave all of us the space we needed to move around and come together. When the adults needed downtime, the kids had the freedom to go swim without supervision, or just go to a private space of their own. We highly recommend this location, especially for a large group, as there are 7 bedrooms all with a gorgeous view of the mountain side and ocean, and one of the rooms has 4 twin beds to accommodate most of the kids. Our 5 girls (cousins) had that room. The view every morning is breathtaking, and to see rainbows every day is heavenly (literally). If we could do this every year we would. This would definitely be our 1st choice for a big family vacation location in St. Thomas.

Awesome Villa * Really Stunning* Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

This villa is fabulous! It was the 2nd time I had stayed at this property; however, the first time since it was expanded. Every detail is covered in the home. I cannot think of anything you would not find there. I booked it for my husband's 60th birthday surprise. We had 5 couples and our 18 year old daughter. Everyone had plenty of space to call their own. My husband loved the outdoor shower! Prepping dinner in the extremely large and well equipped kitchen was reminiscent of "The Big Chill" (in fact there is even Sonos for your listening pleasure). It was truly a trip of a lifetime with great friends, a fabulous home base to stay in, and an awesome concierge service. Anything you want, they can get... all you needed to do was ask.

Stunning property, incredible views, Heavenly!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Serendipity was the ultimate vacation experience! We had a large group of 20 and had plenty of space for all of us to be very comfortable! ( There are actually 3 separate houses, all connected for space and togetherness) The property is out of this world...even better than the photos. Each room is spacious with incredible views and awesome common spaces too...the best views I have ever experienced, and I have travelled a lot! The villa is clean and decorated nicely! Anthony, the super fun and joyful manager was so hospitable..checking in daily and accommodating all our needs and had lots of suggestions to make our stay amazing! If you have a large group and this villa is available...look no further...Serendipity is the best large villa I have ever experienced! Happy trails!

Great views, great rooms and wonderful living area

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity is a wonderful hideaway. When you arrive and descend the driveway, you know you are somewhere special. The views are magnificent. We brought in family for a 5 day wedding celebration. Serendipity provided the perfect balance of togetherness and ability to get away. We used all 7 bedrooms and nobody was disappointed. We had meals prepared by local professionals and our own amateur team. Both experiences are well accommodated at Serendipity. The kitchen is very well stocked and there is plenty of space for group meals.

We had a small maintenance issue and it was quickly resolved by the on call maintenance.

This is a great place for families or groups to relax. It creates a good base from which you can experience all of St. Thomas. Many family members asked if we could make this an annual event.

20th Anniversary Trip

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with a group of friends. Stayed 5 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The property is great, the location is awesome - hovering over the rocks on the north side of the island. Impossible to get tired of the views - morning, day and night. You can hear the waves as you sit out on the porch enjoying a morning coffee or an evening cocktail. We had 5 couples and two singles. Everyone said their beds were comfortable and enjoyed the views from their room (note: two rooms - Hans Lollick and St. John don't have quite the view other rooms do, but still nice). We catered a few meals from PassionFruitCatering which was recommended by the owner, Frances. They did a great job. A bit pricey for what you get, but that's more a reflection of costs on an island. We bought groceries and prepared most of our own breakfasts/brunches. We thought Cost U Less was best for supplies - middle of the island. Kitchen is very well stocked re pans, equipment, etc. We like to cook and found everything we needed. Had a few meals out, The Grille at Mahogony Run was very close and good casual spot, Old Stone Farmhouse was best meal of the trip - lives up to the hype, Fresh Bistro at Yacht Have Grande was nice lunch spot. Once again all recommended by Frances. In fact, every recommendation she made was spot-on. We also arranged for a spa day. Boel with SpaToGoVI and her therapists came to the villa for an entire afternoon and were wonderful. Back to the property - follow the owners recommendations and be sure to rent 4X4 vehicles. While we did arrange for a taxi to get us to and from dinner a few nights, you'll want to have your own vehicles for the duration of your trip. Roads and driveway at the villa are steep A little intimidating at first, but totally manageable and safe. Magens Bay is an easy 5 minute drive from the property. Here again, we went with Frances' advice and rented from Amelie Car Rental - cars were new, clean and service was excellent. Decor and furnishings of Serendipity are nice throughout the property. A little dated in some rooms, but in good condition. The place was spotless when we arrived, all spaces and bathrooms very clean. There were some basic supplies (TP, shampoo and bodywash, towels, etc) but nothing fancy. We made good use of the beach towels and coolers provided. Overall, the place is fantastic and a good price. We looked at many villas to accommodate our group of 12, so glad we ended up at Serendipity!

Amazing private villa with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 14 was easily accommodated in this spacious, well appointed villa. Every detail had been thought of and every preparation made to make our stay memorable and special! Frances went out of her way to decorate for Christmas and even left the ornaments in a basket by the tree so our kids could decorate it themselves! One of our very favorite outings was to Water Island at her recommendation. Any questions that came up before or during the trip, Frances or her property manager were immediately available to assist.

The property itself was immaculate and beautifully furnished and decorated. We never got tired of wandering from one comfortable chair or hammock to another, taking in the different breathtaking views from each one. We also enjoyed some extra special touches like the library with over 600 books, the outdoor shower, the very well equipped kitchen (in terms of appliances, cookware, bakeware, and dishes), and the ice maker and coolers for extra food storage and beach days.

We would wholeheartedly recommend this property to any family or group of friends looking for a truly luxurious experience at an affordable price! Thank you Frances from the entire Joslin family in New England! We hope to see yo again in the future.
