About the Property

3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bath, sleeps 6, entrance on parking level

Enjoy your relaxing vacation in the gated Mahogany Run community. This 3 bedroom villa provides beautiful down island views of the British Virgin Islands, Jost Van Dyke and Tortola as well as the U.S. Virgins', St John. Enjoy whale watching and cruise ship watching from your covered veranda with a cool breeze and your favorite beverage.

Ideally situated on the north oceanside of the island with good breezes, Carefree is within short driving distance of shopping in Charlotte Amalie (15 min), Yacht Haven Grand(20 min) and Havensight Malls (20 min). Magens Bay is 5 minutes away, just past the "don't miss" ice cream and milkshake stand, the 'Famous Delight'. Red Hook (catch the ferry to St. John) and the East End restaurants and shopping are 20 minutes away.

The villa is well equipped for the gourmet cook but there are many nearby restaurants. The entrance, master bedroom, kitchen, living area and pool are on the same level as parking which is ideal for those with limited mobility (one step up from the sidewalk to the entrance).

Our home has some advantages over comparable luxury villas on St Thomas.
1) The villa is almost all windows with screens so the views and breezes are emphasized.
2) The entrance to the house is on the driveway level so you do not have to carry luggage and groceries up or down multiple flights of stairs as you do at most villas on the hillsides.
3) The house is kept clean, and in good repair with dehumidifiers running when the unit is empty so there is no mildew build-up.
4) There are Roku 3 units on all the TV's with Netflix and Amazon Prime accounts.
5) An airport greeter who will lead you to the house and point out grocery stores and sights is included in the rental rate.

Because our regular and new renters that have treated our house responsibly like their own home, our villa remains very economically priced compared to other villas on the island. It has many amenities and is well stocked with staples.

For the adventurous, with our knowledge of the island and nearby islands, we can arrange daysails emphasizing great snorkeling stops or great island beach bars. On island adventures, such as a points of interest tour, best restaurants, historical tours, best beaches, best happy hour and sunset bar views etc., are also easy to arrange. Just let us know your preferences.

Please consider us for your vacation rental.

Car: Necessary

Located in the gated community of Mahogany Run on the Ocean on the north side of St Thomas, the villa has a spectacular down island view of the British Virgin islands of Jost Van Dyke and Tortola, as well as St John in the USVI

Golf: Mahogany Run, our on site golf course is 6,022-yard, par-70 course, designed by George and Tom Fazio. It offers 18 of the most beautiful holes in the Caribbean, culminating in the spectacular “Devil’s Triangle,” the world renowned Signature trio of the 13th, 14th and 15th holes on the Atlantic Ocean.

Golfers who play all three without a penalty stroke are awarded a special “I Survived The Devil’s Triangle” certificate from the Club’s Pro Shop.

The 327-yard 13th is a dogleg-left par-4 that slopes precipitously towards a tiny shelf-like green carved out of a hillside overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Playing the hole in regulation requires an accurate 200-yard tee shot followed by a wedge into the windswept 25-foot-wide green.

Number 14, one of the world’s most dramatic par-3s, is a 173-yard, cliff-side hole with the Atlantic Ocean in place of the fairway. The golfer often must play the ball out over the ocean, battling swirling winds to find the green. In the distance, the islands tease even the most seasoned golfers into taking their eyes off the ball. It is one of the most breathtaking views a golfer will ever witness from a tee box.

A 560-yard par-5, the 15th is the number one handicap hole on the course. Accuracy off the tee is vital. After a monster drive, long hitters often try to smash a second shot over a pond that guards the front of the hole, only to find trouble with the out-of-bounds behind the dramatically sloped green.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We have vacationed in the Virgin Islands since 1980. While all of the Virgin Islands have their strengths, we finally bought property on St Thomas because of all the activities, resources, conveniences, the view from the property we purchased in 1996 and the wonderful people we met.

Why the Owner Chose Mandahl, St Thomas, USVI:
This property is in the gated community of Mahogany Run on the north (Atlantic) side of the island. There are always cool breezes from the trade winds on this side of the island even in summer, allowing us to build a home with a lot of windows to open while at the same time taking in the gorgeous down island view. It is in a peaceful setting and yet still close to the great water, shopping and dining opportunities St Thomas has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The main floor entrance is on the same level as the driveway so you do not have to lug suitcases and groceries up and down one to two flights of stairs which precede the entrance of many island villas. The well-equipped kitchen allows you to have as many economical meals in the villa as you want while at the same time there are two fine restaurants in the complex. You can just 'veg out' for you vacation or have a convenient respite after spending your day out and about the island or the waters of the Caribbean.
