About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 12

Relax on your own private white sand beach, spear fish for your dinner in the 'backyard', snorkel with octopi, moray eels and Manta rays, kayak to the hidden cave. This gated and private, stunning and luxurious 5 bedroom St. Thomas villa set on over 1-1/2 acres of pristine shoreline, has it all.

Villa Serena is situated swimming distance from Magens Bay, one of the ten best beaches in the world, according to National Geographic and the Travel Channel. Take the 2-person kayak out for a paddle with the dolphins or drop the small anchor to snorkel wherever you wish. Or just relax on the private beach and experience a true retreat away from it all. Villa Serena offers a private, quiet oasis with the lovely night forest sounds and relaxing waves lapping on the shore and a great base in which to enjoy this island paradise. It's quite a treat to have a beach, undisturbed snorkeling, incredible sunsets all to your own. Other activities such as private boat charter to nearby islands for fishing, more snorkeling, island hoping or diving, can be arranged with advance notice. Call or email for fees and availability. Also inquire about massage or yoga sessions inside the villa or right on the beach. Mahogany Run, the only Golf course in St Thomas is only 5 minutes away. 15 minutes to downtown Charlotte Amalie. Abundant duty-free shopping. 20 minutes from Cyril King International Airport, which offers direct, non-stop flights from many major U.S. cities. Watch as the turtles, tarpin, horse eyed jacks, mackerel and fry swarm down below your deck and you'll realize this villa is like no other.

Amazing trip, Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from our trip and I must say everything from the house, the pool, the rooms, the house manager, to the house agent were amazing. We loved every minute and I am sure will be returning. This house is a must rent, stunning views, great rooms, and great service. You can't ask for much more.

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

Just recently stayed at this beautiful house. Everything about it from the open shower to the private path down to the beach was amazing. Very Private, yet 5mins from Magens Bay Beach. Highly recommended.

Great Villa, perfect beach and fun Kayak ride to Magens Bay

  • 5 of 5

Hard to describe how great this Villa is and pictures do not do it justice!! Set high on a mountain side but with a path to a private beach is what sets this apart from other rentals..Working with the owner was very easy and the meet and great by the villa staff at the airport was a nice touch. I would suggest renting a jeep type vehicle because this location is a bit "off" road. I would also suggest hiring a Villa chef one night and enjoying a dinner at home!

Like heaven! Our favorite vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family goes back to this villa year after year because we love it so much. All of us, adults and young kids alike, agree that this is our most favorite vacation spot, hands down. One of the most amazing parts is the lovely private beach which is just a few minutes walk from the villa down a well-crafted stone path. The views and sunsets are unforgettably beautiful. You can jump off rocks into the warm, clear water and see lots of colorful fish. Even sea turtles. And the house is so open and spacious, with lovely indoor and outdoor spaces.The world-famous Megan’s Beach is barely a five-minute drive away (or if you’re an active type you can even water walk there from the house, as some of our family members do). The many fun activities in the town of Charlotte Amalie are nearby as well, including high-end, delicious restaurants. We always mix it up, with lots of time at the villa, enjoying all the beauty, relaxation and fun to be had there, with time in town as well, visiting Coral World, the Butterfly Farm, browsing the shops at Yacht Haven, and so on. We highly recommend a week or more at Villa Serena! Your mind, body and soul will be very grateful indeed. But don’t be surprised if, like us, you find yourself wanting to make the trip an annual tradition. Oh and the host and house manager are also very friendly and helpful, offering lots of local knowledge and taking care of any little maintenance concerns right away. I would give the listing 6 stars if I could. It's that fantastic!

The Villa Serena was quite the place....

  • 5 of 5 the most unique part of the island....The view every day was amazing. The access to town was easy enough (with a Jeep.) The interior was laid out fairly well, there were some private areas, and some not so private areas, but that's clearly how it was designed. There were a few small items of concern, like a couple of functional doorknobs, a broken ice machine, and inconsistent cable TV access. But it was furnished nicely with all the kitchen gadgets needed to cook big, complex meals for a large group. The snorkeling in the back yard that was easily accessible, was as good as any reef in the USVI. We routinely saw turtles, rays and a lot of reef fish. Speaking of fish, the fishing was bad off the rocks. If you are going to try to fish, you will need a spinning rod that can cast 100 or more feet: my fly rod could not get it done. Plus, there were not a lot of gamefish in the area.

Overall, I and my family would do this again. It was far better than a seven day cruise at about the same or cheaper cost.

Fantastic home and setting for a big family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Immediately upon arriving all the kids headed down to the private beach and were snorkeling non stop.

The house was set up and laid out perfectly for everyone to spread out and enjoy the view of Magen's Bay and it's crystal clear water.

All but one of our meals were on the covered veranda where there was a breeze that made eating outside very comfortable.

Gorgeous home and perfect setting
