Magens Bay villa description

Truly 5 star in every respect! Poised perfectly on a bluff overlooking Magen’s Bay Beach, this incredible villa presides majestically over one of the world’s most renowned beaches below. Watch our video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImwjtW_kPQE.
From your first step through the floral wrought iron gates at the entrance to Villa Panorama, you are literally surrounded by tropical flowers and panoramic views of ocean, bay and beach. The views are mesmerizing. Below the villa is a pristine nature preserve that extends without interruption down to the beach. Everything about this villa is 5-star quality.You can take a virtual tour on our website.

The totally new kitchen with granite and onyx counters, solid cherry wood cabinets handmade in the US, and all new appliances, is breathtaking. The Great Room features a wall of glass affording sea views from every vantage point. Step out onto the largest of the many terraces and decks which grace the villa, and notice how the turquoise of the bay near the beach gradually gives way to the deep blue of the ocean beyond. Or simply take your first dip in the crystal clear oversized swimming pool (among the largest on the island). If you prefer, a few steps to a lower terrace and a full sized hot tub/spa awaits. When you return to the Great Room, you will notice that the opposite wall is glass allowing you to enjoy another outdoor terrace and garden setting of palms, Birds of Paradise and other exotica. You can enjoy this private setting, complete with a soothing garden fountain whether you chose to be indoors or out.

In a bold departure from the typical Caribbean villa, this modern paradise oozes elegance in every possible way. You will find oriental carpeting in every room of this villa. If you tire of the stunning ocean vistas, take a break with one of the villas’ state of the art flat screen TVs or stereo system. The villa has an excellent DVD library for our guests. Enjoy the fully stocked wet bar. For the Internet user, high speed internet access is available.

This villa’s kitchen is a gourmet cook’s delight with its size and supplies. The vast counters allow your family or guests to nibble on appetizers or help in the preparation of meals without ever getting in each other’s way. If you prefer outdoor cooking, the new barbecue grill is an easy alternative. Your al fresco dining experience can take place pool side or garden side depending upon the mood. Of course the villa also features a more formal dining room with crystal chandelier, mammoth baroque mirror, and Tuscan china cabinet.

The villa contains 4 spacious bedrooms, including 3 master suites. Each is fully air conditioned, has its own TV/DVD entertainment center, and a distinctive ocean view. Each has a spacious bathroom with marble or tiling throughout. The three master suites all have private decks for sipping morning coffee, star gazing, or private sunning. Each room has a luxurious oriental carpet, European linens, thick comforters, huge mirrors, ceiling fans, and large closets.

Let our guides escort you from the airport to this fabulous villa in a private, secluded, gated community. Our concierge will help you with restaurant reservations, boat trips, provisions, and any thing you need to make this the most spectacular vacation of your life.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: My husband, David and I purchased this villa in 2007 and worked with an architect and creative contractor to completely renovate it. Each of our children has a favorite bedroomroom in the villa, which are all large enough to have their friends enjoy some of paradise with them. Our other home is outside Philadelphia, so we find both the summer as well as the winter in St Thomas to be devine by comparison to the cold and humidity. Owning this gorgeous home that catches the Caribbean trade winds has been a gift we love to share!

                  Why the Owner Chose Magens Bay:
                  We came to St Thomas the first time as a graduation gift for our two middle children. We all fell in love with the water, temperatures, vistas, local people, and the peace we all felt. I remember my husband saying:'I bet if we lived here we would age more slowly.' That was enough to get us to a real estate agent,Camille DeCosta of Newland Real Estate that day. Camille was born and raised on St Thomas (leaving only to be a model in Italy for 10 years). The first house she brought us to was this one. She told us it had THE most fabulous view on the entire island. However, the house needed so much work and we were so apprehensive about undertaking such an effort so far away from home that we continued to have Camille show us properties for 3 more years! After looking at EVERY single piece of land and villa in the USVI, we finally agreed with her original statement. It is easier to gut the inside of a structure, add to it, improve it, and ship a container of furniture from the states than it is to recreate the spectacular views that Nature created on this spot! The end result was a fantastic villa located on the very best spot in the Caribbean (and trust me, we checked them ALL out).

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  My husband has always been a sun lover with skin that tans and never burns. So people always laugh when I tell them I have to drag him kicking and screaming to the beach. Now the beach to which I am referrring is Magen's Bay (always listed on the Travel channel as one of the top 10 beaches because of its heart shape and over a mile of pure white sand and crystal clear water with no seaweed or rocks). So what is his problem?? He would much prefer to just sit on our pool deck and stare out at the panoramic views of Magen's Bay and the British Virgin Islands. Our property goes all the way down to the water with only trees between the villa and the water. With his iPod playing smooth jazz, a glass of wine, my cooking, and these vistas he is content not to move for literally weeks on end. Most guests don't go to his extremes, but all have said their experience at our villa was truly the best vacation of their lives. The furnishings are warm yet elegant. The open floor plan allows a large group to still enjoy the same space. The bedrooms are uniquely decorated and very private. There are enough outdoor balconies, gardens, and decks that everyone can also get away for some peace and quiet whenever desired.
