Property description

Thalassa is an intimate, rustic vacation villa on the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. From its vantage point atop the lush Hawk Hill on the south shore, Thalassa offers panoramic views and a constant, refreshing Caribbean breeze even on the warmest days. The unforgettable, unobstructed vistas from every room and each of Thalassa's four decks in the villa capture the essence of vacationing in the Virgin Islands, with sunrises to the east beyond Ram Head and sunsets to the west toward the island of St. Thomas. Thalassa's comfortable simplicity, sustainable design and minimal carbon footprint includes a large main room, fully featured kitchen, two bedrooms, bathrooms and discrete outdoor showers. It accommodates up to four adults and/or children. The villa's tastefully manicured garden provides a virtual snapshot of the island's indigenous biodiversity, with perennial bougainvilleas and a host of other native plants.


Experience vacation in your own style: Located just 1.5 miles (10 minutes) from the island's main town of Cruz Bay, Thalassa offers easy access to a range of restaurants, shops and night life, and frequent ferry connections to St. Thomas and the airport. Or if you prefer peace and quiet, relax to your heart's desire in more than 7,000 acres of national park lands, numerous public beaches or Thalassa's own picturesque serenity. For more details, call or e-mail us, or visit our website.
