Magens Bay studio description

Additional 10% discount for bookings made before November 9, 2012.
Beautiful, beachfront with water access, studio/condo, on the incomparable Magen's Bay, one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean. Villa Eau Claire, where the condo is located, is the closest occupied property to the main beach on Magen's Bay. The villa is a short climb up from a deck with a shower, located on a pocket beach that is entirely sandy. The deck is located one hundred yards from Little Magen's Beach, the largest pocket beach on Magen's Bay and the only beach on St. Thomas that permits nude or topless bathing. Of course, with a private deck, sheltered on both sides, many of the guests go topless right at the Villa.

This is one of the only three condos on Magen's Bay. Other condos are not directly on the water at all, and none of them have their own beach and deck.

The condo is large, about 500 sq ft, with another 250 sq ft of covered deck, where sunning in the afternoon is easy. The entire condo was renovated in 2007, with new furnishings and art work. The television is served by Dishnetwork and offers all of HBO. There is a library of videos for your pleasure, and others can be added upon request.

The bathroom has a double sink and vanity, with a shower. The sink stands were hand made to fit the location.

There is a very functional kitchenette for food preparation, including a microwave, sink, stove top, and all of the appropriate utensils and appliances. There is a refrigerator for cold storage.

The unit is air-conditioned, but the air-conditioning is only really needed in late July to the end of September. Otherwise, it is more pleasant to have the three large fans on and leave the slidding doors open for the breeze and to hear the waves at night.

The studio/condo opens out, to walk up to the car or down to the beach, and the villa is equipped with a untility room with a washer and drying.

Villa Eau Claire is a luxury, high end villa, with everything less than two years old. The location is unique; meaning that nothing else is like it on Magens' Bay. The unit is extremely quiet, very private, and romantic.

Keywords: Studio, beach, private beach deck with shower, large deck, directly walk down to water.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Gordon and Annika Black redeveloped the entire property in 2006-2007. This was our fifth house we developed, and this one we have kept for our own use. We live in an apartment up above the second structure, when we are on Island. That's us at a restaurant in San Francisco, visiting our son and granddaughter.

              Why the Owner Chose Magens Bay:
              This studio/condo has been our own bedroom for the past two years. We decided to rent it only after we decided to spend more time off island. It is a wonderful room, very beautiful and peaceful, with all of the amenities right there for your pleasure.

              The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
              I do not know how many of you have lived directly on the water. The ability to walk down to your own beach, play in the water and sand, swim in very calm waters, and go back up afterwards, cleaned and showered is simply wonderful. When you sit on the deck at night, you can hear the waves down below, and the breeze is always fresh at the Villa.
