Villa is roughly 200' above sea level. Washer/dryer for guest use, dedicated 25mbps Internet, in-unit Wi-Fi via cable TV. Villa de la Vista rests on a 3 dimensional, 1.5-acre pie-shaped lot. The sea has taken a few bites off the tip of the pie. For the adventurous, access our private ocean tidal pool via path down rocky slope to a 60’ cliff. Zig-zag the “walking” path down the cliff, some large rocks to be scaled near the bottom. In calm seas, kayak ¼ mile east into the channel between St. Thomas and Thatch Kay (used by migrating hump-back whales). If you lose your paddle, pick-up in Puerto Rico is extra! Round the new "castle" at the end of Sunsi point to snorkel the limited access (by water only), but pristine Sunsi bay and enjoy the secluded white sand of Sunsi beach! Area below high tide is publically owned and accessible. Never a crowd. Steep slope hills above waterline surrounding Sunsi bay are uninhabited …. but privately trolled by a single owner. Climb/swim/snorkel/kayak/scuba-dive/cliff-dive/fish/boat at your own risk. Signed waivers required for ocean access from villa and use of villa kayaks. Non-smokers only.

Wonderful private getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Paul and Tatyana's studio apartment 3 nights. They were wonderful in accommodating our daughter providing a bed for one evening she was with us. Thanks! The apartment was comfortable and had all we needed. Full kitchen, refrigerator and a bottle of chilled champagne waiting for us! The house is in a private location, about a mile or so off a main road so you definitely need a car. Its hillside so it's necessary to walk down steps to the unit with a private deck/ lounge chairs, grill and a vast view of the ocean. The description is accurate. We didn't walk down the cliff side to the water because it's a bit precarious, not good for those afraid of heights. It's an easy drive to Red Hook and many beautiful beaches. Nice location on the northeast side of the island. We'll gladly stay again. Thanks for your hospitality!

Beautiful ocean views

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about our stay here. The owners were wonderful, the views from the deck were breathtaking. Being able to wake up to the sights and sounds of the Caribbean was awesome. Can't wait to make it back.

What a fantastic place and a fantastic family. Thank you Paul and family for having us there and making us feel welcomed. The place is wonderful and beautiful, quite and calming. If anyone feels like an adventure just go down to the cliff behind the house and into the beautiful scenery of the water and rocks and you can even swim just as long as the water is calm. However, the first time we attempted this on our own it did not go well, so Paul was kind enough to help us go down and showed us the path, although when coming up by ourselves we ended up in another house haha, but still a trip. Thank you again Paul what a wonderful place you have and thank you for having us.

Stunning views, quiet retreat, great outdoor space and fantastic owners

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful place! The outdoor patio space was fantastic and really added to the indoor/outdoor feel of the whole island. With the couch and loungers outside the space could really hold a small group comfortably.

The views and the proximity to the flora, fauna, and animal life on the island though is what really set this lovely place apart. From the wild chickens to the lizards, there was always something fun to check out. The cliff side trek down to the water was also a blast but you need water shoes as there are sea urchins all around the tide pools.

I cannot recommend this residence enough for someone trying to "get away" for a vacation but still be able to connect to the Internet and be close enough to other part of the island to really enjoy all of St. Thomas.
