KEVIN & KATIE BABIS

Villa Seascape is a sleek, contemporary, architecturally designed, Caribbean Home. Extensive, Frank Lloyd Wright design elements were incorporated throughout our home. Villa Seascape was tastefully constructed by the island’s top builder. Seascape’s premier, northerly hillside location is situated 200 feet above sea level to best capture the cool, Caribbean tradewinds and enhance the panoramic views. Seascape will mesmerize you from sunrise to sunset. Have your morning coffee with daybreak over the easterly facing British Virgin Islands. Panoramic, unspoiled Hans Lollick island lies two miles directly offshore. During February & March, the migrating humpback whales splash in these warm waters, adding a surreal touch to nature’s breathtaking backdrop. Mahogany Run Golf Course, Signature 14th Hole is on water’s edge below the villa. Spectacular evening sunsets over the westerly facing, Peterborg peninsula can be savored with a glass of fine wine. Nighttime brings even more romance with moonlight on the water, star gazing and the twinkling houselights of St. Thomas and Jost Van Dyke.

The villa is located in the private, gated, security patrolled Mahogany Run Golf Community. You will be greeted at the main entrance by security staff and pass the namesake mahogany trees, golf clubhouse and restaurant on your the way to your oceanview destination. Seascape is a luxurious, 3 bedroom home which has been beautifully contoured with the surrounding landscape. This villa was completed in 2007 and was carefully designed for easy access without a single stair encountered from the exterior and throughout the main level. The house simply flows from the covered carport, through the privacy gate and flowering gardens to an expansive covered breezeway for outdoor, al fresco dining, with an adjacent infinity pool, spa, lounge area and into the main level. You will have plenty of room to spread out - with 3200 square feet of interior space and an additional 1200 square feet of outdoor living space. The lighted, salt water, Infinity Pool is 10 feet wide by 25 feet long. Seascape is perfect for couples traveling together, or a family seeking quality time in a private, tranquil setting without the frenetic activity often experienced on resort properties.

Whether you are someone with a passion for cooking or prefer to have a professional chef whip up a memorable meal in one the many acclaimed restaurants on St. Thomas, Seascape’s kitchen will not disappoint you. A central granite cooking island and adjacent seating area create a beautiful setting for both cooking and conversation. A gas range, gas oven, microwave/convection oven and all the necessary cooking utensils provide you plenty of cooking options. If you prefer to cook outdoors, a propane grill is conveniently located just outside in the breezeway adjacent to the kitchen and the dining area. Of course, there is a dishwasher to make clean up a snap.

The villa provides a large, comfortable living room area. Sink into the leather seating with sofa, two recliners and HDTV. The main level continues to an office and library area. On occasion the demands of “the office” crop up while on vacation and you may need to handle a little business. Rest assured you will have a spacious work area with both ethernet and secure wireless internet access and a view to make your co-workers jealous. For your convenience a printer/scanner/copier is available to quickly tie up loose ends and get back to the matter at hand; enjoying your vacation. Beyond the office, lies the master suite with king size bed, satellite television, split unit air conditioner, ceiling fan, custom walk-through closet, ensuite bathroom with an open shower and a dual sink vanity.

The entire main level is tastefully elegant with raised cypress wood ceilings, custom high luster, zebrawood cabinetry, granite surfaces, and ceramic tile floors throughout. While beautiful on the inside, the outside “Seascape” beckons. A huge, oceanfront, full-length balcony with both covered and open seating areas adorns the front of the home. The villa’s bright main level is lined with a series of pocket doors to enjoy the stunning views from the inside and seamlessly flow out onto the front balcony, pool, and breezeway.

The villa carries the interior design to the upper and lower levels. The upper level has two large, ocean view bedrooms. Each beautifully appointed bedroom has a comfortable king bed, ensuite bathroom, ceiling fan, individually controlled AC unit and unforgettable ocean views. The lower level has a home theater entertainment area with a large flat screen TV, surround sound audio system, DVD, CD player and two rows of comfortable leather seating in full air conditioned comfort for evening family get-togethers. Bring your favorite DVD’s or use ours. The exercise area is complete with elliptical and universal weight equipment for adult use. A convertible queen size sofa with a comfortable gel mattress is also located on the lower level. A half bath and a closet adjacent to the sofa seating area allow this area to easily be used for an additional two guests if needed. A complete laundry room is also available for use.

One of the World’s Top 10 Most Beautiful Beaches, the mile long Magens Bay is just a short two mile drive away. Magens Bay is a pristine, environmentally protected 68 acre park with nature trails, arboretum, coconut groves. Equally spectacular are Lindquist Beach and Sapphire Beach where there’s always a pleasant breeze and reefs for snorkeling with St. John, and the British Virgin Islands as a panoramic backdrop. You will enjoy reading our island guide left at the villa with personal insights and recommendations acquired over the past 25 years of travel, dining & vacationing on St. Thomas. You may need to return to experience it all. Simply make Villa Seascape your vacation home in the Caribbean.

General Notes:

End of stay cleaning housekeeping service is included in the rate, and a mid-week service is available. Power outages are not uncommon on St. Thomas, however with an automatic 49 KW whole house generator you will have no worries. House cistern water quality is excellent. The water is double-filtered, through a canister filter & a charcoal filter before being passed through a UV sterilizer. For the environmentally conscious, the villa uses renewable power being equipped with a rooftop solar panel system. The bathrooms are each fully stocked with a hairdryer, towels & toiletries. Beach chairs, coolers and & towels are available for you, as well.

About Kevin Babis

We live in Connecticut, have raised a family of three and travelled extensively throughout the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Mexico & Hawaii. After visiting these locations, we were drawn to the U.S. Virgin Islands for the purchase of a vacation home. Our decision was based on a number of factors. The Virgin Islands are blessed to be located at the intersection of the Atlantic Ocean & the Caribbean Sea. This location which provides perfect sailing conditions, also provides favorable tradewinds on the breezy, north shore of St. Thomas. The white sand beaches and turquoise blue waters are spectacular. There is wonderful snorkeling & scuba diving to enjoy the diverse coral and reef fish. The numerous offshore cays, larger islands, & boating provides constant visual interest on the water. The Virgin Islands are beautiful, tranquil islands with lovely tropical flowering trees and plants. Charlotte Amalie boasts a large, deep-water port and is one of the most visited cruise destinations in the Caribbean. You can enjoy history along the waterfront, forts & museums. There are wonderful restaurants where you can watch the departing cruise ships and spectacular sunsets. Charlotte Amalie has wonderful duty-free shopping from t-shirts to the finest jewelry & watches. Most of all we have been taken with the friendliness of the Virgin Island people. A simple greeting like good morning or good afternoon will envoke a friendly, return smile and answers to any questions you might have. The West Indian culture complete with festive dress, mocko jumbies, steel drum, calypso, & reggae music make these islands an experience to remember. Finally, St. Thomas provides a gateway to St. John & the British Virgin Islands through charter or regular ferry service.

Kevin Babis purchased this villa in 2015

Why Kevin Babis chose Mandahl

We are quite familiar with the St. Thomas & the U.S. Virgin Islands. While shopping for real estate, we looked at over 25 properties during an 18 month period until we found the "Perfect Spot". We wanted a nice, modern island villa with a seamless flow onto comfortable, adjacent covered outdoor space. Our choice needed to be in a secure community with a preferred, northerly facing location having beautiful views, and breezes.

There are only a handful of gated communities on St. Thomas and, only a few of these have security patrols to provide "the ultimate peace of mind". We looked at many lovely villas. Some villas with easterly & westerly ocean views can experience severe "sunglare" off the water in the morning or afternoon. A northerly facing ocean location avoids this situation. Elevation improves both the panoramic views and breezes. Some lovely villas were in a location where the prevailing breezes were blocked, which makes these properties quite warm and uncomfortable. You can enjoy the benefits of our discerning selection process & make... "Villa Seascape - Your Vacation Home in the Caribbean".

What makes this villa unique

Elderly & Handicapped Friendly.

Not one, single step throughout the main level including driveway entrance. breezeway dining area, pool, balconies, kitchen, living room, office & master bedroom & bathroom suite.

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Kevin made it easy as can be from the moment we arrived at the airport. He had someone show us to the property and show us anything we would need to know about the home.

We loved every minute staying at the home. It had everything inside you would need as if you was at home to cook and dine. The views were absolutely beautiful. From sitting outside to even laying in any bed of the home you had that view. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool that added more fun to the home.

This was one of our best vacation trips and a first renting a home. We are already trying to get our dates ready to come back and stay again. We never wanted to leave.

Great Week on the Island

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing. We were greeted at the gate to the private neighborhood and had a wonderful week. The house was better than the pictures and that is usually not the case. The view from the pool was worth the price and everything was taken care of while we were there. The owner Kevin call the first day and left additional contact numbers incase of any problems but we had none. I plan on staying here again next summer if we are blessed to come back.

Owner's Response: Tony, Thank you for your kind words. We take great pride in our private home. In many ways, St. Thomas is better than before, last September's Hurricanes. Please treat Villa Seascape as your home in the Caribbean. If you choose to return then, we wil provide our repeat guest discount, towards your next stay. - Always The Best ! Kevin & Kate Babis

Perfect getaway home

  • 5 of 5

I want to start off by saying the property is amazing. I have never encountered a view like the one we had from the balcony in my life. We are a big cooking family so the kitchen lay out was perfect. Eating on the covered deck by the pool with the fireplace made dinner and breakfast that much better. The house is very accommodating even while traveling with a curious 2 year old. Kevin was very communicative with all the details. Brenda met us at the entrance and led us to the property. She showed us everything in the house and answered any questions. Getting a cell signal was a challenge and the wifi was down but that was understood after the damage of the two storms. I used it as an opportunity to not get connected to work. I'm thankful that this property was available since it seems a lot of the island was without power when we were there. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit.

AMAZING!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished up two incredible weeks in the US and British Virgin Islands enjoying the beautiful views and sunshine!! We chose the Villa Seascape as we were looking for a place that could accommodate my fiance and I and our 5 grown children while providing an environment where we could all spend time together! The Villa Seascape was the perfect choice! We spent many wonderful hours in the infinity pool and hot tub sipping on cold drinks while talking, laughing and taking in the breathtaking views. The large open kitchen and patio area had everything we needed to cook and provided a place to prepare and share meals together. The highlight of our week was getting married on the beautiful beaches at Megan's Bay! Thank you, Villa Seascape for providing a wonderful location to make amazing memories that will last a lifetime!
