East End House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

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. Your 24/7 on-site concierge hosts, island residents and ambassadors with customer service and hospitality practice for 40+ years combined, are available to you at your discretion for any questions or requests.

OCEAN KALEIDOSCOPE VILLA is best suited to mature, considerate, happy global travelers, who appreciate a budget friendly, zen, roomy, well appointed and harmonious vacation home, which welcomes all individuals, families, lifestyles, and affiliations equally and respectfully.

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.

Hidden Gem near Red Hook

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's first trip off of the continental U.S. We had a WONDERFUL time! One week is not long enough. It was made even better by having this beautiful villa to call home while we were there. Villa Ocean Kaleidoscope is a clean, well appointed, comfortable and beautifully decorated home that we were lucky to have. Everything that you could think of is already there. Linens, beach chairs and towels, cookware and utensils, books and games, maps of the area, t.v.'s, and stereo system! We really loved the honor system liquor cabinet (if you drink more than half of a bottle, replace it with another bottle of your choice). Also, there was an assortment of sunscreen, insect repellent, and body washes that are in the master bath in case you forgot or run out. It was also very nice to have dish detergent, garbage bags, plastic cups and cutlery, aluminum foil, paper towel and ziploc baggies already there. There is also a wide variety of spices, oils, condiments, etc. so that you don't have to buy all of those things. Gail and Curlson really know how to make you feel completely welcomed.

The villa is very spacious with a large open living, dining, kitchen. A large walk-in closet that could double as a sleeping area with a roll away bed. The cottage downstairs is equally appointed with a comfortable queen bed, kitchenette, and large bathroom/closet. There is a patio off of the cottage with a table and chairs also a large deck and patio area upstairs off of the main villa with 3 outdoor dining sets. The deck has a gas grill, pool with loungers, and hot tub. Washer and dryer are outside in a convenient closet next to the outdoor shower.

We went to Red Hook and enjoyed Duffy's Love Shack on Ladies' Night Wednesday, we ate at Latitude 18 restaurant. Both were great, but we rather enjoyed cooking in and saving that money. We shopped for groceries at Food Center, Moe's and Plaza Extra Tutu Mall. We found that Plaza Extra was the most economical with the best selection.

We enjoyed beaches most everyday, Sapphire, Coki, Secret Harbor, Magens Bay. Magens and Secret Harbor were the prettiest in our opinion. We also enjoyed catching the Safari Bus and going into Charlotte Amalie for some shopping.

I would definitely recommend this property for anyone looking to visit St. Thomas, it is conveniently located, very comfortable, and very reasonable as far as price.

One final note, you must rent a car to truly experience the entire island!

Owner's Response: Wow! I don't think I could have marketed this property better than your INCREDIBLY detailed review. Thank you so much! I'm so happy your family enjoyed their stay and look forward to having you return to St. Thomas for future vacations. It was a great pleasure socializing over some good food and wine, with fabulous conversation in the mix. Please don't be a stranger to our island community. Warmly, Gail

The view from the top

  • 5 of 5

Gail and Curlson are wonderful hosts, friendly, helpful, and very accommodating. The rooms were spotless, and the upstairs not only spacious but filled with all sorts of useful items ranging from beach chairs and towels to an honor bar with more types of rum than I ever knew existed. The downstairs bedroom is small, but has everything a friend or second couple would need.

But what really made our stay outstanding was the location, near the top of a hill outside Sapphire Bay.The view was magnificent. As soon as the sun came out, I would wander out to the porch and watch the sky paint highlights on the clouds over the bay. At night, the lights along the sides of the bay glittered like a crown. We were also surrounded by chickens, which wander freely all over the island. We could hear the roosters crowing if we left the doors and windows open. It made me feel like I was someplace else.

Also, the unit is only about 5 minutes from the ferry to St. Johns, which is much less developed and frantic than St. Thomas. We went over several times and took cabs to the beach there.

Overall, a delightful place to visit. It totally changed my mind about Caribbean vacations.

Owner's Response: We're tickled you enjoyed the wild chickens... LOL. Good thing they are NOT actually ON the property, and stay out on the public road with the rest of their fine feathered friends. Thank you for choosing Villa Ocean Kaleidoscope for your very special family event. We were honored! We look forward to your return for many years to come! Warmly, Gail

Amazing St. Thomas Experience

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Gail and Curlson for a wonderful St. Thomas experience. The home was just what we were looking for! We were on our delayed honeymoon and brought our little one with us and we hit the jackpot! The pool, hot tub, outdoor area and of course the view made the stay truly amazing. Stunning views of Sapphire Beach, St. John's and the BVI's make it easy to just hang out at the house and enjoy the great weather and breeze. The house was very clean and wonderful amenities - A/C in bedrooms, wifi, landline, new grill (which we took advantage of a couple times).

The beach is a little less than mile down the road. If you are staying here you will need a car to get around and it's a great way to explore the island. The little town of Red Hook is awesome! Lots of little shops and restaurants about a mile from the house and the ferry to St. John's is right there as well. I would highly encourage a trip over to St. John's for the day. If you are runner be prepared for some monster hills!!

Gail and Curlson were great hosts and made sure that we had everything that we needed. We definitely plan on returning one day!

Thank you both for make it a wonderful experience for our family.
