              Car: Necessary

              The Palms Estate is located in one of St.Thomas's best and most remote residential neighborhoods, fenced & gated with privacy and seclusion on 2 flat acres of tropical gardens and landscaping.

              The Palms Estate sits on the very top of Crown Mountain A property with tropical palms, plants and flowers surrounded by views of turquoise blue waters and ocean vistas framed by distant islands. It is one of the two highest look out points on the island.

              The breath taking panorama from this beautiful estate is stunning - some of the best views in the Caribbean.

              The Palms villa faces directly south and even though it is located on the very peak of the island, it sits in a protected knoll and is therefore sheltered from the sometimes strong trade winds that we can experience on the Northside during the winter months.

              From the airport it is a 12 minute drive by car. All roads are paved leading up to the house. Once you enter through the electric gate there is a circular driveway that can easily accommodate 6-8 cars with no parking problems

              Great for any kind of events, weddings, gatherings etc

               

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About: My husband and I came to St Thomas back in 1988, got started in the Restaurant business and never left the islands. We both enjoy the great weather and warm climate in the winter with the cool trade winds that keep the humidity down almost all of the year. We also love the great scenery of the islands, the white sandy beaches and blue ocean with lots of water sport opportunities We go power boating or scuba diving any opportunity we get or just relax at our beautiful estate We own the Shipwreck Tavern , which is located in Havensight, St Thomas, right across the street from the main cruise ship dock in St Thomas. The Shipwreck is known for it's great Burger and Ribs and has won many 'Best of St Thomas' awards over the past 17 years We also own Mojos Rum and Surf Shack which is a Tiki Hut that is located directly on the cruise ship dock in Havensight. It's a great place to hang out and try some of our Frozen drinks or Rum Specialties that are popular in the islands. It is visited by locals and visitors alike.

              Why Estate Dorethea:
              We bought this property because it is a 'one of a kind' estate with 2 acres of lush, flat, private grounds. It is located on the top of Crown Mountain which, at over 1600 feet of elevation, is one of the 2 highest peaks of St Thomas. Up here on top of the mountain we have gorgeous views and still have an existing rain forest left with tall hard wood trees which you don't see at the lower elevations of the island. The temperatures up here are about 10 degrees cooler in the summer or winter than in the lower elevations which is nice when you are coming back from a hot day on the beach or on the water.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The estate features a large fenced yard which is safe for kids to play in, we also welcome dogs if you happened to want to bring them with you on your vacation. There are severals old rock walls located throughout the property. We love the 1300 sqft porch with a private pool and hot tub, this is located on the back side of the house facing towards the southside of the island with great views of Hassel and Water island, on a clear day you can see the island of St Croix about 40 miles away It is a very private and secluded estate with great views and lush grounds
