About the property

2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom with Ocean Views and Luxury Accommodations

Perched high above the ocean with unobstructed down island views of St John, Tortola, and Jost van Dyke, our Blue Moon Villa on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands stands ready, untouched by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, with outstretched arms for you to sink into its beautiful island embrace. Located inside the gated Mahogany Run resort community featuring it’s 18-hole golf course and restaurant with steep winding private roads which lead to exquisite private homes and condos nestled in the mountain among lush tropical gardens. Located on the North side of the Island, away from it all, yet, minutes away from beaches, shopping and dining.

The Blue Moon Villa was designed with luxurious relaxation and effortless vacationing in mind. Designed in colors of grey, blue and green, the inside reflects the beauty of the view that you see from every window. Two private terraces provide opportunities to enjoy the island breeze while one walled garden creates the perfect space for meditation or yoga.

The condo comes fully appointed with everything you will need to enjoy your island experience. Ideal for two couples or a weekend with friends, dual master suites have king beds with luxury bedding, private bathrooms with rain showers and ocean views. For the chef, a fully stocked gourmet kitchen awaits you. For the music lover, Sonos speakers are available in every room for you to connect your personal playlists or use the Blue Moon ipad loaded with our favorites. Wifi is available in all rooms. For those who wish to sink their toes in the sand, beach towels and blankets, chairs and picnic baskets are available for your use.

The myriad shades of blue in the waters, the sky and in the moonlight, give this hilltop retreat its name. Whether you want to unwind, entertain or work remotely, Blue Moon Villa is ready for you.

Come, unwind, stay awhile and enjoy!

About Tom and Laura Gorman

Hi! We are Tom and Laura Gorman. When we are not on the island, we live in St. Paul, MN. We fell in love with St Thomas during a vacation many years ago and made it our goal to have a home there someday. We bought our first condo in 2012, a one bedroom in Mahogany Run and renovated it from the ground up. Along the way we met so many wonderful craftsmen and women on the island who helped us turn our dream into reality. It didn't take long for us know that we needed a bigger place so that our children and grandchildren and friends could visit us. We decided to put our first place on the market as soon as we found a new one to buy. That happened in early 2016. We walked through 17M and saw all of its possibilities but it needed A LOT of renovations. We put our old unit on the market and it sold in 12 days - yikes! For the remainder of the renovation, we either rented other places or camped among the rubble! We have so many fond memories of our renovation journey! We took everything down to the original concrete and started over. Our goal was to create a peaceful, restful, luxurious next to escape harsh winters and sad times. In the Fall of 2017, Hurricanes Irma and Maria roared across the island but our little condo stood strong and fierce in the wind and escaped any damage. We love our Caribbean home - and hope you do too!

Why Tom and Laura Gorman chose U.S. Virgin Islands

When we first walked into this unit and opened the sliding glass doors, the down island breezes washed over us. The views of St John, Tortolla and Jost van Dyke were so beautiful with the waves crashing against them - we knew we would never tire of sitting on the balcony. We loved the little gardens - all the plants are courtesy of Laura's mom when she and Laura's dad visited. After Hurricanes Irma and Maria dealt their blows to the island, we found out that this condo has survived 4 hurricanes with no damage - it's positioned in a way that the hill above provides some protection from the wind.

What makes this condo unique

We are really picky about beds as many times, a good nights sleep can make a good vacation spectacular. Both bedrooms have lush new mattresses and Egyptian cotton sheets. The bedding is light and made for easy nights or restful afternoon naps (our favorite luxury). Second was the showers. Both showers have rain showers - a must for washing away whatever is bothering you. The master bedroom also has a handheld shower and a bench for easy shaving or hair-washing. Third is the furniture. We chose what we wanted to sit/lay in not what was appropriate for a rental. Finally, we added an on-demand water heater which heats water much quicker and with much less energy.

Breathtaking view, beautiful condo, comfortable beds & total relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is newly remodeled, featuring all new appliances, furniture, floors, beautiful features throughout. My husband and I spent a week of sleeping late, then moving to the deck with coffee to say hello to the ocean, until we were motivated to get dressed! There is a golf course restaurant that has great food, on this property. We chose to relax instead of golf but the course looks challenging. The property has two swimming pools, but again we loved staying at the condo and having some much needed relaxation!

The huge sliding doors were open, and we saw no bugs and no reason to close them until we were ready for a good night's sleep. The owners of this condo made it clear that they were happy to share this paradise! The condo is state of the art, with TV, great music, and complete comfort. We experienced the malt shop that infused our preferred alcohol, we lunched at Sunset Beach. And we ate at the famous Maynards Fine Dining In downtown St. Thomas. The Mahogany Run property is an Oasis of delight and beauty. We will return in the future!!

It was gorgeous!!! The villa was beautiful and comfortable.! The veiw breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we got there we knew we were in for a treat. The veiw alone won us over. We are originally from "The Rock" so coming home is always a treat! The villa, decor, etc., very inviting that you don't want to leave. Loved the idea of open bar and pantry so what we didn't use we could leave for the next guest instead of throwing it out. Laura and Tom, your hospitality was soooo welcoming we look forward to staying there again soon!

Thanks for everything, CeCe

Breathtaking view, FANTASTIC beds, relaxing and wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo - we left for snorkeling (thanks for the recommendations in your welcome letter) but we ate in most of the time. The kitchen is easy to work in and we had everything we needed. The shared pantry was a huge cost savings over our previous condo stays. We've already booked for next year!

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to stay on St. Thomas. You can see beauty and hear the ocean from a comfortable seat on the deck with a glass of wine or two.

The condo is wonderfully decorated and you immediately feel like you are home with the ambience perfect!

We will return!

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

The owners go out of their way to ensure you have a 5 star stay at their place. It's perfectly appointed, has SPECTACULAR views and you you have all pf your comforts attended to.

We were the only ones at the pool. It's nice to have an easy drive to the beaches and shopping by day and retreat to cook dinner and relax during sun down at night.

Between St. Thomas and St. John's there is ample opportunity to sample island life. This is a spectacular get away.
