Secret Harbour house description
Nazareth Hideaway has been created to provide you with the perfect escape for a vacation. A one bedroom fully furnished apartment above beautiful Secret Harbour Beach where the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean Sea gently lap the shore.
The apartment has flat off street parking right outside the private entrance. Open the door and step on to a spacious wrap around deck where the views are magnificent; the island of St. Croix to the south and some small cays, Capella Island and Buck island to the west…the sunsets are brilliant!
A 5-minute stroll down to Secret Harbour Beach and you will find a wonderful restaurant, friendly beachside bar serving delightful tropical drinks and cold beers, a dive shop/water sports center; all nestled amongst huge palm trees and soft white sand.
The Unique Benefits of being on the residential east end of St. Thomas and at Nazareth Hideaway…
Red Hook village is only a 3-minute drive away, where you have access to many other fun events. You are close enough to enjoy all of Red Hook’s amenities, including a variety of bars and fine restaurants, grocery shopping, cafés, and ferries to other islands; like St. John and Tortola. Or, maybe you would enjoy having a private skipper and boat available for special trips; like a day trip to one of the islands.
Within a 7-minute drive you have access to many beaches, hotels and great restaurants. Lounge on your large deck overlooking the ocean and watching the most beautiful sunsets or dine under the stars with twinkling lights across the water.
To entertain you in the evenings, we have provided you with Cable/Satellite TV: 32' LCD TV with Cable/200+channels in the living room and free WIFI. The living area joins the open fully equipped kitchen. Outdoor dining is just outside on the deck. Outdoor chairs and chaise lounges await you for sunbathing or just relaxing.
You will enjoy the natural beauty and friendliness of the area. Your host has lived on island for more than 30 years and is available to help make your vacation special!

The Nazareth Hideaway is a good place to stay on St. Thomas. We stayed for a week in November. The owner is delightful. She is a Food and Travel Writer/Consultant, and a Yacht Culinary Contest Coordinator. If she is on the island she stays in the house adjacent to the apartment. She will not infringe on your privacy but you will enjoy talking with her. Her years as a yacht captain provides a wealth of stories. The pictures on the website of the apartment are accurate. We did not rent a car and we probably should have. Although for $5 a person per trip, a cab will take you around … and that can be cheaper than a car rental plus you don’t have to deal with the traffic and unfamiliar roads. The owner took my wife and I down to Linquist Beach. We returned there several times as it became our favorite place. The 10 minute walk from the apartment down to Secret Harbour was an easy walk for us and the bar and restaurant were a good place for lunch or dinner. We had gotten into the swing of spending the morning on the deck and then, when the day begin to heat up, we would go to Secret Harbour. We would swim, get an umbrella and chairs and read and then either eat lunch or dinner there before walking back up the hill to the apartment. The microwave, gas stove and refrigerator make eating breakfast and lunch easy. There are pots and pans to prepare more complex meals if you want. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the deck overlooking Secret Harbour. I would suspect that Jan would provide about anything you needed if you asked. You can catch a cab down to Red Hook and with the ferry be over to St. Johns in a short time. If you want to explore more of St. Thomas, it is about 20-30 minutes back to Charlotte Amalie.

Relaxing and fun-filled stay
Relaxing and fun-filled stay
We just returned from a wonderful stay at Jan's apartment at Secret Harbour. We have an incredible time. The apartment is very comfortable and has all you will need for a short visit or extended stay on St. Thomas. The walk down to the beach at Secret Harbour took us seven minutes at a relaxed pace. We looked around at a variety of places before booking with Jan and we were glad at the decision we made. She was an absolutely wonderful host. She immediately made us feel like old friends and was so kind in helping us plan our fun during our stay. We did not rent a car while on the island and we found that the taxi rates were quite reasonable. It was easy to get from Jan's place into Red Hook as well as a variety of beaches. We walked down into Red Hook to catch the ferry over to St. John and had a relaxing day at Trunk Bay. It was definitely worthwhile. Would definitely recommend staying here. Thank you for your hospitality, Jan!

Wonderful apartment, fantastic sunsets!
Wonderful apartment, fantastic sunsets!
I stayed in this wonderful apartment for a month, and I'm so sad to have to leave. It has everything to make you feel right at home. It's so well-located..near all the best beaches, the lively Red Hook area for dining, and the ferry to St. John and other islands. Plus, it has it's own very private wrap-around deck with views of the amazing sunsets! The bed is extremely comfortable, and the full kitchen makes cooking-in very convenient. Every morning I had breakfast on the deck, and saw many butterflies and hummingbirds. You won't find a more friendly and gracious owner, and she can help you with suggestions for restaurants and other activities. It also has free wi-fi and safe, onsite parking, and your own separate entrance. I'm already counting the days until I can return!

While the boat was out of water, we couldn't have had a better place to relax and enjoy our time ashore in St. Thomas. The apartment is like an oasis, hidden away behind a gate surrounded by bouganvilla, spacious, airy with views you dream of. The things we loved best: the light tropical decor, our own deck, cable TV; privacy with separate entrance; walk to the beach - or never leave. BTW, the owner makes you feel like you are a personal guest and she takes your enjoyment seriously. Location is great and very convenient to shopping, restaurants, ferry to St. John, Tortola etc..,

Jan writes cookbooks, articles for magazines on cooking, boating and travel. Coordinates Culinary Contests and vacations on yachts.

Why the Owner Chose Secret Harbour:
After 12 years of being on a yacht taking guests out on vacation, we sold the boat and bought here. I missed boating, but especially missed helping people enjoy their vacation. The apartment is a great place to lay back and enjoy the Island life in the best location. East End of St. Thomas is convenient to everything - restaurants, cafés convenience stores, night life, charter boats and the ferry to St. John and the British Virgin Islands.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Putting your feet up and enjoying the view and the breeze. Or, a stroll to the beach and snorkel the reef, have a cool drink and watch the amazing sunsets.
