Cabrita Point villa description

Casa Bougainvillea is located on Cabrita Point, a peninsula on the east end of St. Thomas. Our house is nestled among foliage and over two hundred bougainvillea plants.
Set seaside, and edged on its own rock and coral beach on turquoise Great Bay, this pristine and beautifully landscaped, private estate offers three air-conditioned bedrooms on the light and airy upper level, plus two more, completely air-conditioned, one-bedroom suites poolside -- on the ground level.
Enjoy the breathtaking views of Little St. James Island and Current Cut. Listen to the gentle surf; watch the spectacular yachts go by.
An electronic security gate marks the entry to spectacular Caribbean gardens with sculpture, an aqua freshwater pool, an open-air gazebo with a gas barbecue, a lily pond with waterfall, and fountains.
A spacious, elegant great room features cathedral ceilings, air-conditioning, and colorful artwork. It provides relaxed seating and entertainment areas -- and opens onto a covered verand

At Casa Bougainvillea you can enjoy alfresco dining, a cocktail, yacht-watching, or just relaxing with a good novel. The villa has five televisions and VCRs which all are serviced by cable.
This screened and fully air-conditioned villa is well-designed and serene. It's the perfect locale for a memorable vacation in the sun.
Follow a path through the gardens to the blue ocean's edge for easy access to wonderful snorkeling on live reefs -- just outside Casa Bougainvillea. Casa Bougainvillea is well located on the east end -- only minutes from the ferry to beautiful St. John. Grocery shopping is very convenient, as are some of the best restaurants on St. Thomas.
Casa Bougainvillea is wonderful for families or friends traveling together who each desire the privacy of their own accommodations.
Taxi service is available, but a rental car is advisable since Casa B is located on Cabrita Point. You'll can be met at the airport (20 minutes away) and shown to your villa, Casa-b.

The villa is only four minutes from the ferry to St. John. There are several restaurants in the small town of Red Hook and a grocery store - marina market. The Mahogany Run golf course is only a few minutes from Casa Bougainvillea. We suggest you make day trips to other beaches on St Thomas. It helps you appreciate how nice just sitting at Casa B can be.
Maid service can be provided mid-week. A damage deposit of $500 is required. A 10% VI hotel tax will be added to your rental rates.

Because Casa B i s located right on the water's edge the snorkelling is as good as anywhere. Guests have reported seeing spotted eagle rasys, turtles, octopus, squid and many varieties of fishes. There are also live coral and sea fans. Many times you will be able to see large starfish and large conch. The water's are protected so it is illegal to remove any sea life from the waters on the beach at Casa Bougainvillea. It is this policy that keeps the reef so vibrant and full of life. Thank You for behaving.

We have recently added a solar panel system to the villa to be more green and decrease your carbon footprint when you stay at Casa-b. Your help in conservation of electricity by turning off air-conditioning when not in use and conserving water usage as much as possible.

                  VRBO Bear enjoying Casa Bougainvillea's verandah 10/30/2004

                  VRBO Bear stayed here:

                  Casa Bougainvillea on St. Thomas is a fabulous place to gather with a group of family or friends and enjoy a Caribbean vacation. The villa is ideally situated to both protect your privacy, yet offer great waterfront views.

                  Everyone will enjoy the fresh water pool and the large deck area (featuring plenty of sun or shade choices). The spacious and open great room is the perfect gathering spot... open the sliding doors to catch the cooling ocean breezes, or crank up the AC... your choice. Enjoy watching the sailboats from your covered verandah.

                  The gazebo features a gas BBQ so you can grill up a mouth watering steak or seafood feast (there are many fine restaurants nearby as well, for those nights when you just don't feel like cooking). The adults in your party will enjoy the choice of 3 master bedroom suites (one even has a private outdoor shower)

                  Oh... one more thing, on a moonless night, the view of the Caribbean stars is amazing...

                  Casa Bougainvillea is located on the most activity laden of the US Virgins Islands. There are many restaurants within a short drive from Casa B. We provide mid-week maid service during your stay. The best thing I can say about Casa B is location, location, location. Because Casa B is located right on the water's edge there is easy access for snorkelling, swimming or just floating. The grocery stores are close by to get the things you need. Because Casa B is located off the beaten path, your privacy and quiet are maintained. Hope to hear from you soon.

                  Other Activities: kite surfing, relaxing, sunbathing, tanning


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We have been travelling to St Thomas for many years. We decided to purchase Casa Bougainvillea so we could do family vacations and have friends visit at any time but also to available a wonderful home for anyone to bring their family and friends.

                  Why the Owner Chose Cabrita Point:
                  We purchased Casa Bougainvillea as a place we would eventually like to live. St Thomas is such a wonderfful island with all the fine dining and great beaches. There are also surprisingly lots of cultural activities to take advantage of. The water sports are refreshing and can be exhilerating and the best sailing in the world happens in the BVI, just a short hop from Red Hook. The community spirit we have enjoyed while on extended visits to St. Thomas and Casa-B have reassured us we have chosen wisely for our future home in paradise.
