About the property

2 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, 4 Sleeps

This superb and luxurious home sits atop Picara Point in upscale Estate Peterborg, surrounded by 330-degree sweeping ocean views. Three levels, all beautifully detailed and furnished, offer wonderful panoramas. On Stargate's fully air-conditioned main floor is the Great Room with an impressive arched stone fireplace. Just outside is a sunny swimming pool overlooking heart-shaped Magens Bay. Below the villa, a manual gate opens to a short driveway to the attached garage where you may park your rental car. What a spot from which to stargaze or watch the twinkling lights of Tortola. Set atop a breezy ridge, Stargate offers luxurious romance and serene relaxation surrounded by inspiring vistas. Watch tropical sunsets from the pool, then after a leisurely dinner, move to the deck on Stargate's opposite side.

A handcrafted mahogany spiral staircase leads to Stargate's upper level and the spacious, air conditioned king master suite, offering a private balcony with a view of Magens Bay. The staircase continues up to Stargate's observatory tower, equipped as a secluded office with a DSL + Wi-Fi connection for your laptop and a printer, and with wonderful views from Magens all the way around to the British Virgin Islands and St. John.

The main level offers a formal dining area, a gourmet kitchen with native stone and granite counters and wet bar, a powder room, and two air-conditioned king bedroom/bath suites. French doors open from the Great Room and from the four-poster king bedroom to a spacious deck bordering the entire Atlantic Ocean side of Stargate, providing awe-inspiring down-island views - miles and miles of supreme sea vistas punctuated with islands in the distance.

The villa has three en-suite, air conditioned bedrooms containing king beds, with the master suite located on the second level. Waking up in this location every morning is reason enough to book your stay at Stargate.

When you base yourself here, youll have easy access to the beach at Magens Bay, the airport (only 20 minutes away by car), Red Hook ferry dock which provides boat trips to St. John, and last and by no means least, plenty of shops for you to browse in. Because of the location of the villa, its highly recommended you rent a 4x4 vehicle rather than a standard car. Theres a once a week maid service included as well as a personal concierge and 24 hour guest support.

Memories of a lifetime, in an awesome place,shared w/ lifelong friends

  • 4 of 5

We could not believe how beautiful this place was. The views, amenities and the memories that will last forever.

Only a couple of comments to improve the experience. Need to let incoming guests know how steep that driveway is and the narrow roads to get there along without driving on the left hand side of the road. Staff should check the space to make sure everything is working. If too much time has passed between rentals there could be some issues.

We had an overflowing toilet on the first flush and 3 malfunctioning air conditioners.

Five college friends celebrating 41 years of friendship and turning 60 years old. We will never forget this trip.

Spectacular Views in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience with Luxury Retreats. The views from Stargate on St. Thomas were spectacular . . . the Atlantic ocean on the east, Magen's Bay on the west. We enjoyed waking up to the sunrise and enjoying cocktails in the pool to watch the sunset each day. The person who designed this village should be commended!

Upon arrival, we found the grill to be inoperable. An email to Luxury Retreats resulted in a brand new grill being delivered the next day. Additionally, the maintenance person Paul delivered cushions for the pool chairs so we could be more comfortable. We found the Luxury Retreats firm to be responsive.

The driveway and roads are steep. Rental of a 4x4 is essential.

All in all, a great vacation.

Incredible panoramic views.

  • 4 of 5

This villa has incredible 335 degree views that are even better than as advertised, including waves crashing against rocks -- unique for the Caribbean. Comfortable home with a great location -- Magens Bay is practically in the neighborhood. Air conditioning issues with two of the downstairs units but prompt response in trying to resolve.

A paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

We married on St Thomas and took Stargate for a week - it was utter bliss. One of the prettiest and most private location and home I have experienced to date. Exceptional.

All backed up by a very professional and refreshing service by Kirsty and her team at Luxury Retreats. See you next year!
