10% discount for bookings made before Nov 9 2012, 15% discount for stays of 7 nigths or +. Villa Eau Claire is the nearest occupied villa to the Main Beach at Magen's Bay. A short, ten minute walk through shallow water with sandy bottom and you arrive at the most famous beach in the Virgin Islands, a mile long beach that is a children's paradise. The Main Beach has shopping, a restaurants serving pizza, hamburgers and salad, and a large open air bar. The Beach also supports rentals of sailboats, and other water craft.
The guests who stay at Villa Eau Claire do so because of the access to the waters of the Bay, which lap directly on the property at one of the rate pocket beaches on the Bay. The water access is supported with a large octagonal deck, lighted and equipped with a shower, and a few easy steps to what seems to be a private beach. You can get a swimming pool anywhere; with Eau Claire you get the whole Bay.
Little Magen's Beach is one hundred yards to the left, hidden by a rock jetty. It takes three minutes to reach it. Little Magen's is the only beach on St. Thomas where nude bathing is permitted, which has been the source of considerable amusement to our grandchildren.

About the owner: Gordon and Annika Black live at Eau Claire about half of the year, in a one bedroom apartment on the left side of the villa. When not at the Villa, they are usually traveling or in Paris, where they have an apartment. Villa Eau Claire was a redevelopment project, where the two combined to produce a lovely home and rental property.
Why the Owner Chose Magens Bay: Villa Eau Claire is the single nicest location we have ever enjoyed. Because of its location near the main beach on Magen Bay, the villa is bathed with gentle breezes nearly the entire year and it is much cooler than surrounding areas. Of course, the ultimate attraction is our own sandy, pocket beach, with a deck equipped with a shower and lighting. Annika swims a mile and a half every day, without fail, and Gordon walks six miles on Peterborg Road enjoying some of the most beautiful views anywhere.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: This rental unit was originally developed as our own home. We equipped it with all appliances, and all the bedrooms have dishnetwork with HBO. We only have rented it for vacation rentals for less than a year, but it has been so successful that we have joined the two bedroom unit to the masterbedroom to produce a unit with three large bedrooms and three bathrooms, sleeping seven with an airbed or a crib.
