Situated at the end of a private lane, Villa Mirino's serene, intimate setting is apparent the minute you drive through the gate. Lush landscaping greets you, from the Flamboyant tree gracing the parking apron, to the enumerable flowering bushes and palm trees. A lime tree deposits fruit for your cocktails on the front doorstep. Flowering pipe cacti support the native bird population, and it is not uncommon to have a hummingbird greet you in a private moment in the garden. The villa is maintained by professional pool and housekeeping staff and guests are assisted by an experienced villa manager.

This villa is truly unique: set on the sea among private residences in renown Estate Nazareth on the south end of the island, it is a mere 5 minutes to the conveniences, fun and dining of Red Hook and the ferries to St. John and the British Virgin Islands. Nestled between Secret Harbor and the St. Thomas Yacht Club, one can enjoy beaches and snorkeling within a 10 minute to 15 minute walk, or Magen's Bay, consistently rated as one of the world's top 10 beaches, within a 20 minute drive. Scuba diving and snorkeling trips depart from marinas 5 minutes away; some charters will pick you up at the Villa.

About Dewey

We are travelers who have enjoyed a number of wonderful islands and countries. We live and work in the midwest, but travel to St. Thomas as much as our schedule allows. This is our vacation home, and trust you will find it a special place to visit.

Dewey purchased this Villa in 2015

Why Dewey chose Estate Nazareth

Ambiance and privacy from the minute you drive through the gate. A home that offers serenity inside and out, set amid lush landscaping. There are incredible views from every room, while high ceilings top off generous-sized rooms. The inviting infinity pool provides the best view, both daytime and evening. This fully renovated home offers top quality furnishings, decor and technology. An escape for anyone, yet close to the best fun and activities of the island without the hassle of crowds.

What makes this Villa unique

We chose this secluded, beautiful location on the cliffs of St. Thomas amid flowering trees, plants and cacti as our vacation home. Hummingbirds, tree frogs and lizards are your company, as you enjoy a private residential setting and incomparable views of the Caribbean. Sunrises and sunsets are beautiful, with gorgeous stars and moonlight at night.

But, when you add the amenities of Villa Mirino, its fabulous views and location, this island home becomes an incomparable choice for a vacation. Have it all: privacy, beauty, relaxation and fun.

The owner and her staff were so accommodating with all the last minute changes we had to make throughout our stay. We will never stay anywhere else but Villa Mirino when traveling to St. Thomas.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      This home is BEAUTIFUL! You couldn’t pick a home in St. Thomas with a better view of the ocean.

                                                                      matt w.

                                                                      We absolutely enjoyed our vacation at Villa Mirino! There was 6 of us, and the house was perfect! We all had plenty of space and they had everything to accommodate us plus more! Most of our time was spent outside on the amazing deck, each morning with coffee and then we grilled out a couple of times in the evening. If we weren’t at the Villa we were either at a beach or taking the ferry to St. John, which was equally beautiful(we went twice). We also enjoyed some time in Red Hook. We loved Duffy’s bar, they had a band one night and we had a BLAST! I would most definitely recommend Villa Mirino to anyone that wants to visit St. Thomas. The house manager Jerscillia, was awesome. If we needed to be in contact with her, she responded immediately, as would Dewey. Thank you again, for letting us stay at your beautiful home!!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

Since the villa is only 5 minutes from Red Hook, it is a great location while still being a beautiful, private retreat. Thank you for making Villa Mirino part of your family vacation.

                                                                      Villa with amazing outdoor space

                                                                      Anne K.

                                                                      This property is amazing! It has everything you might need, and more. Dewey and Jerscilla where incredibility responsive and concerned that we had the best experience possible. There were 11 of us; 6 adults and 5 teens/tweens. We never feel crowded and had plenty of space to spread out. The outdoor space is absolutely perfect! We were outside on that deck, except for our day excursions. We only ate out 2 times, choosing to stay in to enjoy the property; big breakfasts in the morning and dinners at night. We swam, watched movies, read, played games, and stargazed. The adults took walks most mornings while the kids slept in. We especially enjoyed our walk into Red Hook for bottomless Bloody Marys at Fishtails! All of us went on a fishing trip with Fishwhistle Charters and caught enough yellowtail snapper to feed us for 3 meals. We also went on a 1/2 day snorkeling boat tour with Vilocity. This was the children's favorite experience. We were able to see fish, octopus, squid, turtle, and lobster. The ocean was rough for both of our boat trips, so for safety we did not get to go everywhere we wanted, but we couldn't have been happier with our captains. We took our cars over to St. John, spent a day at the beaches and ended up at Skinny Legs on the other side of the island for an early dinner. Also, enjoyed our time at Coki and Magens Bay. It was hard to leave, but we have fabulous memories of our time together.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Great Family vacation

                                                                      Paul M.

My wife and our three adult children with spouses and my granddaughter appreciated the spacious bedrooms with individual baths. The outdoor kitchen and dinning area overlooking the ocean was wonderful. We spent most of our time in the outdoor setting are enjoying the sun.

                                                                      Amazing views and all the comforts of home!

                                                                      Sabrina B.Tampa

                                                                      Wow is all I could say as we came up over the hill and onto the driveway for Villa Mirino! Just the most amazing view, and beautiful lush landscaping welcomed us. We spent a week on the Island celebrating my 40th birthday and the Christmas Holiday. Each day brought trips to local beaches, exploring the Island and then the evening always included a swim in the pool, sunset watching, cooking outside on the grill and enjoying time with my family of 8 (age range from 9 years old to 67 years old).

                                                                      Location on the East End of town is great, close proximity to some of the best beaches on St. Thomas, the fun town of Red Hook, and close to the ferry service to St. John. This was our third trip to the USVI, and the views, the space and the wonderful Villa Manager Jerscillia made this trip one of the best!

                                                                      Only reason I rate at 4 stars is because we were operating on a generator for power and water due to the Hurricanes earlier in the year. My Husband is very handy and was able to take care of turning it on and off as needed. Other than the generator hum and some diesel smell, we could not have asked for a more perfect spot to enjoy our time on St. Thomas.

                                                                      Pat and Dewey were in contact with us whenever there was a concern, and we appreciate their responsiveness. Jerscillia, the Villa Manager on the Island, was so sweet, and very prompt in responding to any questions or needs we had.

                                                                      Thanks so much Pat and Dewey for sharing your home in Paradise!

                                                                      We are delighted that you and your family had a good time at our vacation home. To let viewers know, we do have power from the power authority as of December 30th, 2017. Unfortunately, this was the day you checked out! St. Thomas, like the other Virgin Islands, suffered significant damage from the Cat V Hurricane Irma and we were without power from the power company for over three months and ran off of our new 35 kW generator.

                                                                      We also did keep you (and all guests) up to date on developments at our villa, both good and unfortunate. With a material change like a loss of power, we give guests a chance to cancel their reservation. Generators are noisy and a bit smelly. But, the villa is now back on the grid, with the generator providing standby power should the power company go down.

                                                                      Thank you for sharing your experience.

Villa Mirino is at the end of a private drive, on a bluff overlooking the Caribbean sea with 182 feet of shoreline and 210 degree views. The infinity pool and lengthy deck with multiple sitting areas offer a stunning view. The property offers privacy amid flowers, birds and other wildlife. Secret Harbor beach with a restaurant and snorkeling is just 1/2 mile down the road. Other beautiful beaches are just a short drive away, and charters and ferries to St. John and other islands leave from harbors 5 to 10 minutes away. There is parking at the property if you choose to rent a car, but the property is also accessible by taxi (we can recommend a service familiar with the location or we can provide directions).
