Also don't worry about bringing beach towels they will be provided at the house.

13. Do I need a passport?

Answer: No not to go to any of the US Virgin Islands but if you plan on doing a day boat trip to any of the British Virgin Islands you will need a passport.

FULL DESCRIPTION:

Blue Horizons Villa reflects the essence of paradise and dazzles the senses. It is located on the island of St. Thomas in the luxurious US Virgin Islands. The Villa is perched in a stunning fashion at the top of the highest mountain on St Thomas and is surrounded by lush tropical plantings and fruit trees. Blue Horizons Villa is just minutes from Magens Beach and many other beautiful white sand beaches are within 2 miles. This villa offers spectacular 300 degree panoramic views from St. John to the east, the beautiful Charlotte Amalie Harbor to the south and Puerto Rico to the west. At night the view lights up with a wonderful twinkling display of the harbor, town and cruise ships leaving port.

Blue Horizons Villa is a very private, friendly and spacious villa with cool ceramic tile and splashes of tropical color. The main level is comprised of a master suite and it's own bathroom. There are two other spacious bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds. The suite has its own bathroom and the other two upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom. From the main level you can walk directly out to a large covered gallery or to the wonderful pool for a refreshing dip. A staircase leads you down to the bottom level which contains a private queen bed suite with its own bathroom.

Blue Horizons Villa is located in one of the most discreet locations on the most developed and liveliest of the US Virgin Islands.

About Louis Balady

My wife and I lived on the island for 4 years in the 90's and could never get it out of our blood so we decided to buy a house. We have two kids 9 and 14. Luckily we are able to get down to St Thomas for at least a month each year.

Louis Balady purchased this villa in 2007

Why Louis Balady chose South Side

I chose this location for my house for the incredible views, constant breeze and central location to everything.

What makes this villa unique

What we like the best is having group meals on the balcony with the cool breeze and great views. You cannot go to any restaurant in St Thomas and have nearly as good views as we have right from our decks. You truly have a 300 degree view from the balcony and the pool deck. Another bonus is the house is so high on the mountain the temperature is consistently 8-10 degrees cooler than down by the water. 66-70 at night and 74 to 83 during the day, could not ask for anything better.

I have also had many wedding/receptions at the house which lends itself to great pictures and there is enough seating for at least 20.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good day Sir,



We made it back safely to Italy, but I wanted to personally thank you for allowing us to stay at your place. We had more than enough rooms and beds to accommodate everyone and their own personal preferences. We could tell that you and your team put a lot of thought into what a family coming on vacation would need, because we had everything we could have possibly needed. I also wanted to thank you for working with me financially; I know this is your business and I understand fully that you were not obligated to accept my offer, however, I am truly and deeply thankful you did. And for that, if ever you're in Italy, hit me up!



My little Italian place is not as fancy and exciting as yours, but, you will definitely have a place to lay your head while you're out visiting/exploring.



One more thing - while I was unpacking, I found a fork in my suitcase. I'm assuming my cousin did not put it back in the sink when he was done eating prior to us leaving for the airport, and quite frankly, I don't even know how he managed to put it in my bags. Please send me a bill for a brand new set, that's the least I could do.



Mr. Balady, once again, it was a pleasure doing business with you and we sure appreciated your hospitality.



Happy Easter to you and your family.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

From the second we got there and walked through the gates to the property the view took our breath away. The house was perfect for our group and we used the pool daily. We used the covered deck almost every night to eat dinner on and I am sure there is not a better view on the island to look at while eating dinner. We also used the grill to cook on almost every night. The owner was very helpful with activities, beaches and restaurants. He had a vast knowledge of the island. The house Manager met us at the airport to guide us to the house and was available via phone the entire time we were there to answer any questions. The wifi in the house worked great so we could answer a few emails when needed. All of the furnishings, bedding and towels were in good shape and the kitchen was stocked with everything needed. We take trips like this every year and we will definitely be back to this house again. Incredible house you can't go wrong.

What a view

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely amazing. Its even more beautiful in person. It overlooks the island with breathtaking views. The house is so open and all the rooms are great for everyone to enjoy. You can relax in the pool after a long day of touring the island or just sit on your private balcony and enjoy the sunset. You feel like you are all alone on the Island. The owners are available any time and will respond to any questions you have as well as let you know of things to do while you are there. You can tell that they have put a lot of care and love into their house. I don't see how anyone could stay here and not want to come back its truly a paradise get away. We will definitely be back

Perfect house!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED this house! We came for our honeymoon and brought our wedding party with us including our 10 month old son. There was plenty of room for everyone and the owners were more than accommodating! They even had a crib and strollers for us. The house is located near the top of a mountain and the view was to die for. We absolutely loved everything about the house and will definitely be back in the future!!

Very disappointed

  • 1 of 5

Communication up to the point we arrived at the property was great. But the condition of the property was very disappointing. To begin with, the pool was not working and full of algae. The deck furniture was either broken or rusted to the point where we were afraid to sit in it for risk of breaking. The property hadn't been cleaned outside and the BBQ grill looked like it had never been cleaned. The property only has AC in the bottom unit which can only be accessed by going outside the unit. In that unit, the bathroom light wouldn't stay on due to an electrical issue where the breaker continued to trip. (Even with all other lights and the AC off). The final issue was it is swarming with mosquitos. It was bad enough that we decided it was better to find new accommodations for our stay on st Thomas. Other than that, the interior was clean and reasonably nice. I did attempt to contact the owner reguarding the issues. He responded that he would work to resolve the issues but never heard back from Him.

Owner's Response: First of all this customer did not even stay at the house one night and was refunded in full. Also look at ever other review, they are all five stars so this was obviously an isolated incident. There was a guest that left the same day he was supposed to arrive and they wrote a glowing email to me. See bottom of this response for a copy of the email from that guest. There was also a guest that came the day this guest was supposed to leave and liked it so much they asked to pay for an extra day. See his email at bottom of this response. Pool was green but pool guy was there to fix. Alot of rain that week the pool did get green was blue next day. There was 1 outdoor chair that was broken out of 10 and has been replaced. Grill just needed have the grates brushed. The prop does only have ac in the bottom bedroom clearly stated on the website. The electric issue was bad breaker which has been fixed. Mosquitos, it is a tropical island and if there is alot of rain there will be mosquitos anywhere on the island but typically, since the house is so high on the mountain and a constant breeze, there are no mosquitos. As for contacting me I did contact him back but was never given a chance to resolve the issues.
