OCEAN KALEIDOSCOPE VILLA offers accommodation excellence for vacationing families & friends, honeymooners, or business travelers, desiring a PRISTINE, COMFORTABLE, MODEST, AND BEAUTIFUL CARIBBEAN RETREAT for relaxation, play or work!

With it's UNIQUE LAYOUT, this property consists of 2 stand alone units, each with 1 bedroom/1 bath, that are INCLUDED in every reservation. The spacious Ocean Retreat unit is defined by a king bed and queen sofa pullout, full bath, full kitchen and living area, large covered patio, covered lounge, and pool/spa deck. While a few feel away, but within the perimeter of the fenced grounds, is the delightful Serenity Cottage, complete with queen bed, full bath, kitchenette and private covered deck. OCEAN KALEIDOSCOPE VILLA is the PERFECT accommodation for large or small groups planning family vacations, buddy trips, or work junkets. Guests will appreciate the space, privacy, and convenience of this property’s sleeping and living arrangements!

Nestled in St. Thomas' eastern tip, cradled among gently sloping hillsides, this tropical oasis tantalizes the senses with a breathtaking 180-degree view of Pillsbury Sound! So close you can almost touch them, the outlying emerald green uninhabited cays of the US Virgin Islands (Lovango, Mingo, Grass, Thatch) and eco-friendly St. John Island, as well as islands of the BVI (Tortola, Jost Van Dyke), rise majestically out of an inviting sapphire blue Caribbean Sea.

Enjoy gentle tropical breezes, whispering surf, and the melody of native birds while you read or enjoy your morning coffee. Bask in the crystal waters of a sun drenched pool, surrounded by a tropical landscape, and then relax in the soothing spa under a star-filled night sky. Or dine outside while admiring the shimmering glow of the sun or full moon on the undulating ocean waves below. The dense natural foliage and a carefully planned property layout offers personal and discreet solitude. Enjoy tasteful rattan furnishings, colorful caribbean styles and artwork, and quality amenities that enhance the character of an island home. OCEAN KALEIDOSCOPE VILLA embraces you in the feeling of seclusion, while only being 5-15 minutes away from pristine beaches (the nearest within 1/4 mile and 3 minutes driving), savory island cuisine, exhilarating marine adventure, challenging golf links, shopping bonanzas, water sports, and island hopping.

OCEAN KALEIDOSCOPE VILLA is ‘Your Vacation Home in the Caribbean’! From arrival to departure the OCEAN KALEIDOSCOPE VILLA experience is customized to your standards of vacation excellence and enjoyment.

Beautiful HomeAway

  • 5 of 5

The property has beautiful views and is in a quiet and safe location. It is comfortable, beautifully decorated and outfitted with modern bathrooms and kitchen. It is conveniently located only a 5 min drive to the ferry docks and Red Hook. Gail and Curlson are excellent hosts, quickly responsive when you need them yet completely respective of your privacy. This HomeAway is deserving of its unanimous 5-Star reviews.

A Kaleidoscope of Memories!

  • 5 of 5

The excited gasps started from the minute Curlson opened that big wooden door, leading to the most breathtaking views on St. Thomas! The pictures can't convey the feeling you get when you are on the lanai, looking at the aqua water and several islands on the horizon. Just beautiful. The whole guest floor is fantastic and we used it all...BBQ, pool, hot tub, outdoor shower and covered lanai/eat-in area. Our two boys, 20 and 17, had their own little house with a bedroom and bathroom as well, although they were up at our house most of the time. :) This was our treat for the Christmas holiday and it was the perfect fit for the four of us. Everyone had their own space and the accommodations that Gail and Curlson provide are not only complete but exemplary! From the honor bar waiting to quench your thirst and start your vaca, to the most comfortable bed welcoming you at the end of the night, these owners have thought of it all. Curlson gave us great tips on where to go on the island - and we followed every one! We ate real island quisine at De Coal Pot and had Christmas "black cake and guavaberry liqueur," an island tradition from a most wonderful Auntie down the street. We found Secret Harbor beach, another of his suggestions, and were so happy we didn't miss out on that....it's gorgeous. The villa comes with plenty of beach towels and chairs, as well as a cooler (and deli stop suggestions from Curlson as well!!) so you can relax, drink a beer (no open container laws here!) and enjoy your picnic while others on the beach are spending big bucks on a gross hot dog. Side note: You MUST get a Painkiller from the bar if you go to Magen's Bay. WOW! Yummo, Strongo. Snorkel there too, to the right side where all of the birds are diving for fish. Take a ferry to Trunk Bay (underwater snorkel trail) and Honeymoon beach on St. John. Try underwater scooters/snorkeling tours with BOSS (I saw a shark!). Visit Blackbeards Castle and walk the 99 Steps for a fun photo. Buy some souvenirs from the Vendors in Charlotte Amalie. Have lunch at Oceana in Frenchtown right on the bay. Get a World Famous Banana Daquiri at Mtn Top ( hard to find). Sit in Drake's Seat at a great photo overlook. Kayak through the mangroves. And enjoy a fishbowl of blue booze at Duffy's. I could go on and on with the many activities and sites these islands have to offer, then come home to your own cliffside villa! Our family made many memories here, with Gail and Curlson being the perfect hosts!

Perfect Holiday Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Kaleidoscope Villa is perfectly located on the island of St. Thomas just north of Red Hook on an accessible road overlooking the exquisite view you see in the picture. We arrived at night unable to see the view in the nighttime darkness, and were dazzled by its beauty when we awoke the following morning. As a matter of fact, we spent a great deal of our time on the very large extended porch outside enjoying conversation with one another and the lovely view. You won't find better hosts then Gail and Curlson, who welcomed us so warmly and provided for every need that we left feeling more like cherished friends than clients. The house is immaculately clean--a top priority for me--and the layout and amenities are exactly as described. I would happily recommend this property to a friend or relative, and expect to return myself with my adult daughter (who wasn't able to travel this time). We didn't use the small pool, but that's only because we preferred the beach. Smith beach, formerly Lindquist, is within walking (and very easy driving) distance--approximately 400 yards once you've made your way down the hill to Route 38. Although we also visited Magen's Bay, the "neighborhood" beach at Smith/Lindquist was absolutely perfect for our needs: clean, fine-grain sand, gorgeous waters, uncrowded but very friendly. (I wish I were writing this review from my beach chair there! ) I definitely recommend the large spa (hot tub) right on the premises after returning from the beach. It's roomy, warm, and helps soothe tired backs from zip lining, hiking, etc. I confess that I ventured into Charlotte Amalie to enjoy one day of shopping, which was fantastic. And my adult (23, and 29) sons enjoyed more than one evening out on the town (especially Duffy's Love Shack). But the real beauty of St. Thomas is in the gorgeous natural beauty of the island, especially those turquoise waters, and the human kindness of people like Curlson and Gail ready to share their home with guests from around the world. You'll love it here!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Ocean Kaleidoscope from 11/22-12/3/16. This property is absolutely beautiful with such a stunning view, close to Red Hook and Ferries to St John. Beaches were a couple minutes drive from the house. The neighborhood was peaceful, quiet, and neighbors waved as we drove by. Gail and Carlson were not only great hosts, but beautiful people and made us feel right at home. I would have no problem staying here any time. Thank you to our wonderful hosts for such a memorable stay.🌴

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Gail and Curlson are the perfect hosts. Everything is perfect at Ocean Kaleidoscope. The view is amazing and the feeling of being in your own private get away from the rest of the world is the first thing you experience. You have a pool and hot tub for the moments of rain or lazy days. Full updated kitchen has everything you need. To make your own meals and still have the "resort" feeling was perfect. There were five members in our group (myself, husband, two children and my dad). Usually my dad bunks in with the family it was an early Christmas for him to have his own private room. He loved it...If you are on the fence about booking don't....book today!! We will be returning...

A trip of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

I don't have the words to describe how beautiful the view from this deck is. Pictures can't do it justice. Our stay here was wonderful - Gail and Curlson were quick to respond to all of my questions both before our arrival Andy during our stay. The house had everything we needed and lots we didn't expect. I would most definitely stay here's again and highly recommend this property.
