About the Property

LUXURY.PRIVATE. POOL.ROMANTIC. HONEYMOON.ANNIVERSARY. BEACH.

If you are looking for a serene and romantic tropical hideaway in a luxury renovated cottage, 5 minutes to everything, this is The Secret.

Once you are inside your private compound, behind your big garden gate, you are in your own private world. This is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. We hang original art and everything is designed to relax and nurture the soul.

This totally private residence is the perfect place for romance; honeymoons; anniversaries or simply uninterrupted relaxation. Tiled in diamond cut porcelain, the cottage features wall to ceiling glass overlooking your private pool; a gourmet kitchen and a sunken shower that is a destination in itself.

The bedroom features ice cool air conditioning with remote control; a king Ritz Carlton bed and a TV with remote control in case you want to watch a movie in bed.. You will fall asleep in the cool air to the music of palms rustling in the breeze.

Your beautiful gourmet kitchen features workspaces and bar in honeycomb tile; a large stainless steel refrigerator; glass hob and dishwasher.

You can enjoy eating at the bar; the formal dining table or enjoy coffee or dinner al fresco by your private pool. Dining or relaxing on your recliners you will see beautiful humming birds and tropical flowers.

Having your own private pool could not be more convenient. You can cool down in your pool while your barbecue lobster or steak is on the grill.

At night it glows and s the most romantic spot for a midnight swim.

It is just a stroll down to Pelican Beach and Sapphire beach in under 5 minutes. Here you will find amazing snorkeling and likely will see and be able to swim with turtles.
You can also also walk over to the Sapphire Beach Marina to discover water sports activities,; take a deep sea fishing expedition or book one of a selection of day sails and boat trips we offer at a discount.

Your location is behind Pelican Beach and adjacent to the National Park on its' norther edge. Here you will find the island's most beautiful, quite unspoiled beach: Lindquist.

We also have a restaurant on the premises if you don't feel like cooking.

You are only 5 minutes from Red Hook which has about 20 restaurants and bars. You also have the ferry terminal which offers and hourly ferry service to and from St. John where you will want to visit to explore some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Cruz Bay also offers a wide variety of food, bars and shopping.

The Secret is a private, unique, luxury destination.

Car: Recommended

This is a great location for a two center eco and ocean vacation.

The location of the cottage is close to the tip of St. Thomas where it almost touches St. John. You can take the 'people ferry' over to Cruz Bay for dinner or to listen to music or, if you have a car , take it across Pillsbury Sound on the 'barge' to explore the National Park for the day. You can walk across to the Sapphire Beach Marina to take the most amazing power boat trip around the BVI and see the famous rock formations at Virgin Gorda' or to take a snorkeling day sail to the St John National Park or a sunset sail around the beaches and islands.

Your view is towards Pelican Beach and Pelican Point across a swathe of protected eastern caribbean jungle that is rich in flora and fauna, with the islands of Tortola and St. John beyond.

Although hidden away and surrounded by nature you are only 5 minutes from Red Hook, the centre of dining and night life on the island. Hidden away, no one will know you are there but if you want to go out at night you are close to everything and can have a lot of fun.

You are also next door to part of the Saint Thomas National Park.

Lindquist Beach (Smith beach) is perhaps the prettiest, most unspoiled beach on the island. You can relax on your beach chair in the shade of a sea grape tree, sipping your drink and put your toes in the clear water. Ah...paradise.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: I have lived on an off the island for over 20 years. 30 years experience in hospitality selling some of the best resorts in the world I wanted to create my own guest experiences. I have worked at the Ritz Carlton; Bluebeard's Castle and Hilton Grand Vacation Club. Our emphasis is on personal service according to your preferences.

Why Estate Smith Bay, Saint Thomas, USVI:
To the best of my knowledge this is the most upgraded cottage at Pavilions & Pools. It is one of only a few with a glimpse of the sea beyond the jungle from our bridge.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Updated. Privacy. Perfect romantic retreat. Help with transportation.
