Property description

Our view is “180 degrees of pure paradise”. One of our guests creatively coined this phrase! Other’s have described our view merely as “unbelievable, breathtaking, incredible, spectacular, awe-inspiring, surely the best in 3,000 miles.” We are perched on the rugged coastline of St. Thomas, only 100 feet above sea level. The sounds of the waves, lapping against the gigantic boulders below, provide relaxing background music. Unwind in our cliffside swimming pool, crafted around one of the boulders, and enjoy the unobstructed views out through the Sir Francis Drake channel, with the numerous British Virgin Islands in site. You’ll discover ample opportunity for watching the parade of sailboats and yachts that glide by, or catching a glimpse of the occasional whale during their springtime migration, birds diving below for their lunch, or a sea turtle surfacing for a bit of air. Star gazing at night is just as gratifying, with shooting stars guaranteed.

Just like a favorite pair of jeans, we’re a place that you’ll feel most comfortable and welcome in. The villa sits under a massive banyan tree, surrounded by native greenery, giving it an almost magical appeal as you enter the property from the driveway. We’re decorated in a casually comfortable, yet elegantly refined, Caribbean style: A place where you can feel at home and relax into island living. The kitchen is equipped with every appliance and utensil you’ll need to craft a fantastic family dinner (or let one of our private chefs come and entertain you). Your rental includes all bathroom amenities, bath towels, hairdryers, beach towels, sheets, etc. All you need to bring is yourself, a swimsuit, and your food for the week, which can even be pre-delivered! As guests have noted: “Our snorkeling, shopping and golf was fun, but getting back to the Three Palms was the best part of the day ... The care and attention that you put into your guests far exceeded our expectations.”

Magens Bay Beach is just a short two mile drive from the villa. Magen’s is ranked as one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world by National Geographic. Magen’s is perfect for family gatherings, with very little surf, wonderful soft white sand, trees for shade, and picnic benches for dining. There is also a water sports center, as well as restaurant and bar, at the beach.

Peterborg Point, where the villa is located, is a very safe and prestigious neighborhood, and is enjoyed by many fitness buffs for AM and PM walking and jogging. Our gated community of Red Rock has approximately 25, well spaced, home-sites and lots. Three Palms sits at the end of a cul-de-sac, and offers a very secluded feel, yet we are centrally located and about a 15 minute drive to most areas of interest, including the airport, Charlotte Amalie, Red Hook and the ferry docks.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: My name is Victoria Prehn, and as your hostess and owner of the property, I’ve been welcoming guests into my home since 2003. I’ve been a resident of the Virgin Islands since 1991, moving here after the death of my younger brother and a stop-over on a cruise. Life is short, and I decided to ditch corporate America for island living. During an economic downturn in 2000, I luckily stumbled upon the property, and immediately fell in love with her amazing serenity and awe-inspiring oceanfront scenery under an ancient banyan tree. As a graduate of Cornell University’s hotel administration program, the property seemed a perfect way to utilize my education in hospitality. After extensive renovations, the home was opened to short term rentals in July 2003. I was one of the very first properties to be listed on sites such as VRBO and HomeAway, in an emerging market of “rental by owner”. It’s been an amazing experience to share my love of St. Thomas and my home with hundreds of adventurous travelers from around the world over the past decade. I reside, with my two cats, below the main villa level of the property in a two bedroom caretakers apartment. The apartment is out of view from the guest area and has it’s own back entrance. I like to tell my guests that I’m available as MUCH or as LITTLE as needed during your stay. I'm originally from Ravenna, Ohio, a small town outside of Cleveland. Following college graduation, I spent 4 years between New York City and Dallas as a Market Study and Real Estate Consultant with Kenneth Leventhal & Company for clients such as Donald Trump & Ritz Carlton. Corporate burnout and a death in the family inspired a move to St. Thomas, and for twenty years I served as founder and president of PC Paradise, the Apple and Hewlett Packard computer dealer to the Virgin Islands. I sold the business in 2012, and now spend my time providing life coaching, business consulting and web development to entrepreneurs.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
To quote our contractor (and many past guests): 'There isn't a better view, than the view from this house, on St. Thomas!' The home offers a secluded feel that one can truly relax into. Catching rays on the deck, and cooling off in our pool is a real treat. And you can't beat the star gazing! Falling asleep to the soft sound of the ocean helps quiet the mind, and makes for a wonderful night's sleep.
