Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Just Do It !! No more excuses, because this home offers an affordable option to renting your own home with private pool at an incredible location just above Pelican Beach. The location is on the East End of St. Thomas, just minutes from the quaint town of Red Hook and the ferry to St. John. Views towards St. John and the British Virgin Islands are amazing.

The home is within a private gate shared with only two other homes, on the knoll of a hill over beautiful Pelican Beach and adjacent to numerous other white sand beaches. Yes, you can walk to the water. You are also close enough by vehicle to choose a different beach every day, as this is a great location with easy access to everything you need.

Enter from the private drive to an inviting covered porch and pool, offering complete privacy. The pool is quite large in island standards (not just a small dipping pool), and is also handicap accessible. It offers a great mix of sun and shade along with wonderful views. From here, you can enter the home to a door into the kitchen, or around the house at the huge covered veranda that offers the views dreams are made of. The upstairs has two bedrooms and two bathrooms to accompany the outdoor living space (as that is how we prefer to live here in the Virgin Islands). The great room also has a pull out couch for extra guests.

The third bedroom is accessed via a separate outside entrance and has its own full kitchen and bathroom- a complete separate apartment. There is an additional pull out couch downstairs, so the apartment can sleep four. With this kind of setup, you could even vacation with the in-laws!!

The home is complete with Air conditioning not only in the bedrooms, but also in the great room. But with the Easterly breezes blowing, you likely won't need it. This is such a refreshing location just above the water, you will want the doors wide open while you relax on the porch soaking in the views and Caribbean wind therapy.

The home is professionally managed, so feel free to look at the link to get to additional photos on our website. Since we do this for a living, our goal is to give you the perfect vacation retreat. The owner is also on island and stays very involved with the home- keeping it up to the highest of standards.

If you are unfamiliar with this location, please feel to call or email and let me know your questions. This is about a mile from Red Hook, where there are multiple restaurants, bars, shops, and more. It is also where you catch the ferry to St. John. Very nearby beaches are Sapphire Beach and Lindquist Beach, as well as Pelican Beach. It is not a far drive to Coki Beach and Coral World (about three minutes). Mahogany Run Golf Course and Magen's Bay are about a ten minute drive. But you are right in the midst of the nicest beaches St. Thomas has to offer, yet also close to nightlife and St. John.

We stayed for a week at Christmas and absolutely loved our time here! The views are amazing - we enjoyed having breakfast and coffee on the front porch overlooking the other islands. And it so convenient to Red Hook and the ferry. We spent several days in St John, and when we got back from the ferry, our house was just a few miles up the road. We did walk to Pelican Beach one time but the road down is steep and there are cars that drive very fast around blind corners, so not the best for walking with children. Though, Pelican beach was very nice and it's a short walk over to Sapphire Beach Club. The house itself was very accommodating for our large group and Denis was there when we arrived and was super friendly and gave us some local tips. A rental car was very helpful. I would definitely go there again. It was one of my most favorite vacations ever!

Love it all

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé actually said it was awesome. She loved it. it was worth every single cent that I paid. When you step in the front door it don't feel like you are still in St. Thomas. One my favorite part of the villa is the swimming pool as you walk in. Then you can't miss the beautiful well keep landscaping that surround the whole villa. You want to talk about a beautiful view from the front porch. It's breath taking. There is also different porch furniture for you to relax in (lounge chair, big eating table and chair to eat, and a nice big enough for 2 hammock). The inside is big and spacious. Love the island in the kitchen. What was so great about the kitchen was, there was everything that you could possible use in there. The free internet was great and fast. The A/C was a great asset. The whole villa was well keep and clean. The beds was beautifully made with decorate sheets. All the commodities of a 5 star hotel is there in the villa plus the privacy. The great part about staying there is you don't have to worry about seeing other visitors. It was a great overall experience. enjoyed every moment of it. Just wish I could of stayed longer with my family. My family loved it. Waking up to that view every morning was a great start to my days there. I would recommend any one to stay there when ever you visiting St. Thomas.

Great Views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six just returned from a week at Sea Sound Villa. We had a great time and would love to visit this home again. The house is clean, comfortable and accurately shown in the posted photos. The owners are easy to reach and are very helpful.

Outside, the views from the large wrap-around deck are fantastic! There are several lounge chairs around the pool, there is a large table that’s great for breakfast or evening cocktails and around the corner there is a big hammock for napping. Inside, there is a well equipped kitchen, a dining area, a large living room and two large bedrooms with attached bathrooms. My two teenage children slept on the large sectional sofa and were comfortable. Below the deck, there is a smaller “apartment” that is perfect for a couple.

We spent several mornings on Pelican and Sapphire beaches below the house. You walk down a paved road with a short hike through the trees at the end to access the beach. The road is a bit steep in spots, but my 82 year old mother was able to make it fine. There are lots of beach chairs at house if you want to take them along.

We enjoyed the homes east end location. You are only about a five minute drive to lots of restaurants, bars and shops in Red Hook. We liked that the house feels secluded, but you can grab a quick lunch or run to the grocery store without lots of driving.

Thanks Laurie and Denis!

Absolutely Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Best Vacation ever said my 18y/o son, it doesn't get any better than that. This Villa has it all, pool short hike to a great beach with snorkeling, fantastic view and every amenity you can think of. Beach chairs, snorkeling equip, beach towels, coolers it was like being at a first class resort. The owners bent over backwards to make our stay the best. Recommendations were spot on, and I can't say enough about the home even band aids and iodine for an emergency. We will definitely be back.

Breathtaking views ideal for R & R

  • 5 of 5

I brought my family on this vacation to escape the winter weather and it was the perfect choice. The house had everything and more than we expected. We had our 6 month and 7 year old daughters with us and they were in heaven. We have traveled a lot and the view from the deck was one the best we have ever seen. It was so relaxing that we didn't want to leave the house, except to go for our daily swim and snorkel at pelican beach, which was just a short walk or drive if you have a baby. We felt like we had our own private beach, what more could you ask for.

The owners Laurie and Denis were so good to us and helped us with anything we needed. We are so grateful that we found this place and can't wait to go back!

Happy Grandma

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed at Sea Sound Villa in June of 2013. There were 9 of us and we were very comfortable. The Villa is beautiful and the location is wonderful and very secluded. We didn't need to really bring anything as most everything is provided. It is very close to Lindquist beach which was quiet and not many people, it is also very beautiful. Close to Coral World and Coki beach. Coki beach was a nice place to visit for seeing fish, it was crowded and had lots of fun going on, lots of tourists. We had a couple things come up at the house and Denis took care of them right away. It has a wonderful pool that is pretty big so you don't even have to leave the house if you don't want to. The island is a beautiful place to visit and the home is very welcoming. We cooked most of our meals but went into Red Hook to eat out and shop. Hoping to visit again someday. Highly recommend it.
