Magens Bay apartment description

A great alternative to high priced hotels and resorts, this affordable, cozy one bedroom apartment has a view of Magens Bay to die for.

Centrally located high up on the lush north side of St. Peter Mountain, the tropical breezes are refreshingly cooler here than at sea level, and you can enjoy a sundowner on your spacious deck while you wait for the moon to rise over the British Virgin Islands.

At night the musical songs of the tree frogs will complete the tropical ambiance, and in the morning the rising sun will greet yet another perfect day in paradise as you enjoy your coffee on the deck and search for Iguanas sunning themselves in the treetops below. Tropical flowers, such as Angel Trumpets, Gingers, Heliconias and Torches surround you, and bird watching here is superb, with Red Tailed hawks, Green Parrots, and Hummingbirds among others.

Of course, you are also just minutes away from world class shopping in colorful Charlotte Amalie, and at the doorstep of some of the finest beaches and snorkeling in the world. Go out exploring or just relax all day on a beach towel at Magens Bay, rated one of the top ten beaches in the world!

At the end of a long, full day of one of the best vacations you will ever have, you know that you have your own little hideaway to come home to on St. Peter Mountain, you can bathe in pure rainwater that has been heated by the sun by the new solar collector and melt into the queen-size bed. Come join us.
