About Joanne Hux
Joanne and I have traveled around the world and have always compared St Thomas to wherever we have been. We always said St Thomas was the most beautiful place in the world and in 2006 purchased a home there. We then took four years to create what we would expect a caribbean home to be. The personal touches in the house and landscaping enlightens the senses thru tropical plants and colorful flowers. We hope you share in our creation.
Joanne Hux purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Joanne Hux chose Estate Smith Bay
Sometimes in the winter you just want to get warm. Florida is very nice but can get cold. St Thomas offers a warm vacation under the American flag and is easily accessible from major airports. The water colors in St Thomas are like no other. The east end of the island is a much more relaxed atmosphere than Charlotte Amalie while still offering easy access to restaurants, shopping, St John and the BVI 's via the passenger or car ferry. Caribbean Castaway is between two of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Lindquist and Sapphire Beach, ( both just a five minute walk from the house), After a two year search we found this unique property and fell in love. Most properties in St Thomas are on a cliff which limits the use of the property to the house and porch. We wanted a flat piece of property which you can truly walk into the water from and have open space for a yard with grass.
What makes this Villa unique
Caribbean Castaway is one of the finest rental villas in St Thomas. It's a short walk to Sapphire Beach and Lindquist Beach. Best of all you can walk into the water straight from our property and the snorkeling is incredible! A great place to just relax at the pool, swim/snorkel, soak up the sun or escape to your own room with balcony for some quiet R&R. All interior rooms are air conditioned and the entire property is serviced by a 60 KW generator. The cottage, 20 feet from the water’s edge, is constructed with stone/brick/shell materials inside and out, just as they were 200 years ago , the vaulted cypress ceiling, the stone shower, the kitchenette area all make this a very special. The cottage is included in our rate for a six bedroom rental only. Cottage may be substituted as one of the bedrooms ( Five bedroom minimum) for a additional fee of $500.

Fabulous resort-like property
We chose this property for our weeklong Thanksgiving getaway for three generations of our family. We had a total of ten people staying at the house, including four teenagers. Everyone said repeatedly that this was the best vacation ever. The house and grounds are beautiful. The pool was a daily gathering place for everyone, the snorkeling at the beach was breathtaking, and the bedrooms were set up so that everyone had a private place to go to. The kitchen and two dining areas (inside and outside) easily accommodated all of us. We had a fabulous time, and everyone hated to leave at the end of the week.
We highly recommend this property!
We had a fantastic time. The rooms were exactly as promised and the location was perfect. One of my favorite features of the house for our large group was that no bedroom led into the main living area directly so you maintained a lot of privacy and weren't bothered by the people inside if you were trying to sleep. The property managers were incredibly helpful and easy to communicate with.
A+ all around!
So glad you had a great time. Your comment about the bedroom layout reflects exactly what we envisioned when planning the house. Dawn and Dave are amazing!!
Don’t want to leave....
This was by far my favorite vacation I’ve ever been on. The home was beautiful. It was in the perfect location for all of the activities we had planned. Highlights: private rooms, never felt like we were on top of each other, sound system- turns the house from quiet to a festive atmosphere with the click of a button, we’ll-stocked: everything we needed to cook or make some fun island drinks was all there. I would definitely recommend the house.
We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Caribbean Castaway and we look forward to your return.
Great location and views.
We loved staying at Caribbean Castaway. From the owners to the property managers, everyone is incredibly helpful and responsive. The home is absolutely stunning. Every room has a gorgeous view. The pool and grounds are immaculate.
There were ten of us on the property. We felt like it was spacious and perfect for hanging out together. The setup of the furniture enables sit down meals inside or out for everyone.
This is a place I would love to visit again.
This was our second time to stay at the Caribbean Castaway and we enjoyed it even more than our first time. We completely recommend this property and are hoping to return again for sure!!
It was wonderful
The house and lawns were exactly as pictured. Beautiful, quiet,delightful, and all good adjectives.
The entire island of St Thomas is breathtaking. Caribbean Castaway offers our guests the ability to enjoy the island pleasures in the most comfortable way.
