Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

(Click on our video on the left) Our condo, located on the beautiful unspoiled north shore, is just 15 minutes from the airport, although it seems much further, is by no means your typical Caribbean beach front condo. First of all you are 50 feet from the surf! The sound is incredible, especially while lying in bed. This is by far the best unit in the complex because of the location, view, size, and it was just fully remodeled and furnished.

Next, all but two of the 32 units there are lived in year round by it's inhabitants. All the neighbors know each other and are very friendly. Most will realize you are staying in our place, so don’t be shy asking for directions or a beer. This is not a resort, but absolutely feels like a sanctuary or retreat. There are wild chickens and roosters, as well as the occasional iguana running around. Don’t worry they all get along fine with each other and with the horses on the edge of the property. Well kept but not manicured, nothing feels forced. This is island living. It’s all natural.

The beach, 50 feet from our living room, is usually deserted, as everyone living there in Dorothea is at work. If there happens to be a horse on the beach or in the water don’t worry, sometimes they break out to go for a swim! If you want to hike to another beautiful quiet, deserted beach where there are no buildings or anything but white sand, you can hike to Neltjeberg (pr. nelteeberg). It’s a little less than a half a mile walk on a spectacular forest trail that includes an ocean cliff section directly adjacent to the property. It’s a local’s favorite, deserted most weekdays. If you want something more traditional, world famous Megan’s Bay is only two bays over, about a 7 minute drive from Dorothea. There are 53 other public beaches. Typical this is not.

It’s a small island so everything is close, including the ferries to St John, Tortolla, Virgin Gorda and many others. Day trips are easy and inexpensive. We provide beach towels and coolers for your use.

Owning this exact condo was Dori’s dream before ever meeting me in Connecticut, so after we got together I bought it for us. I now understand why it was her dream and I think you will too.

One more thing, if Violeta, a little orange cat comes by for breakfast, there is food in the refrigerator for her, and please keep the foot bath water fresh because she will drink out of it when you are not looking!

About The Owner

Dori and I live in Connecticut where we each have businesses. Dori is a psychotherapist in private practice in West Hartford and I have a mortgage company in Farmington. In fact, I recently received my lending license from the Virgin Islands so I can work as well as vacation in Saint Thomas now. We were recently married right on the beach in front of the condo!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

Why The Owner chose Northside

Dori fell in love with this place 20 years ago after a friend of hers moved here permanently. When we got together she took me here to introduce me to the island and her friends. The rest is history.

Beautiful, restful, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed here twice and enjoyed both visits. Being so close to the ocean is wonderful, and this is truly the view off the balcony. The condo comes with soap, shampoo, conditioner, towels, sheets, and some snorkeling gear and even a couple of beach chairs to use during your stay. Kitchen has spices and sometimes food left by other renters. There are even books of different types, plus DVDs in case of rain or to watch in the evening. We love staying on the north side of the island and highly recommend this condo. There is a double bed in one bedroom and 2 twin beds in the other, plus 2 full baths, full kitchen, living room, and 2 private decks. The bedrooms have AC, which helps greatly with a good night sleep. There's a little market both ways off the main road, which is nice for getting ice, a newspaper, drinks, and other necessities, if needed. We will definitely return!

Secluded

  • 4 of 5

If you want off the beaten path, this is for you. As stated most of the people here are full time residents and they are the friendliest we have ever met, helpful, outgoing, and social, they will treat you like family in a heartbeat.

Only one caveat, driving here is nerve racking and dangerous, at least for us old folks.

Owner's Response: The road in is steeper than many in the states, but it is paved and in good repair.

Stay here! Great spot, great owner!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was spacious, clean and really nice. Perfect spot for a relaxing week in St. Thomas. Owner could not have been more helpful and thoughtful. We had a couple obstacles of our own making and Jeff went out of his way to help solve them. We felt like we were staying in an old friend's place rather than a rental.

The location was perfect, right on the water on a secluded bay with hardly anyone around except the really friendly and welcoming condo residents.

We will be back!

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Dorethea and St Thomas. Dorethea was the best of both worlds for us. We could easily get to wonderful beaches, play golf or island hop or just stay at the condo with a beach out the back door or hike a short trail to awesome sea cliff views. This property was very clean and the owner was very helpful. I would recommend it to everyone.

Beautiful views and great property owner.

  • 4 of 5

The views were breathtaking. Jeff the owner was absolutely wonderful to deal with. The beds were comfortable sheets were clean. Plenty of towels. Debbie, the caretaker was very polite and friendly.In fact all the neighbors that we met or came across where also very friendly and helpful. We were pleasantly awoken Every Morning by the sound of roosters. After rain in the evenings we did have to listen to chirping sounds that we were thinking may have been frogs or possibly Birds. The chirping sound after a rain in the evening may have been the worst part of the condo. We did plenty of snorkeling and swimming on the beach and found much Wildlife to be viewed in and out of the water. Overall we give them 4 out of 5 stars. We would house giving it four and a half stars but it wasn't an option. I would recommend this rental unit to friends and family and would stay there again if I found ourselves on st. Thomas again. have given it for and a half stars but it wasn't an option. I would recommend this rental unit to friends and family and would stay there again if I found our souls on Saint Thomas again. In order to have received 5 stars the air conditioners in the bedrooms would have needed to have been able to perform at a little bit better level.
