About the property

5 Bedroom, Oceanfront Villa with Private Pool & Hot Tub

Meaning 'House of Smiles' in Italian, Villa Sorriso is a spectacular Ocean Front property in the exclusive and gated area of Peterborg East on St Thomas. Perched on a cliff over looking the Atlantic, Villa Sorriso boasts panoramic views of the unspoiled island Hans Lollick, Jost Van Dyke and the British Virgin Islands. One mile away is the famous and sandy Magen’s Bay Beach and Mahogany Run Golf Course and restaurant.

Villa Sorriso’s unique layout over 4,000 square feet of living space including a large pool deck and hot tub is ideal for Honeymooners, multiple couples and large groups of families and friends traveling together. The 5 bedrooms are each equipped with their own en-suite bath, ceiling fan, air conditioning and closet, and are open to an outdoor porch or patio via sliding glass doors with their own unique view of the ocean. The flexible, airy design of Villa Sorriso’s unique accommodations and many outdoor terraces invoke the true feel of Caribbean living.

The newly renovated gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for 10 and features all new stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The chef of the group will have a choice of cooking styles between a 5 burner gas stove, Kitchenaid Convection Microwave and Oven and the outdoor grill. You can find all the same luxuries of home and more at your fingertips. An additional outdoor covered deck gives the option for dining al-fresco. Sliding glass doors and the many windows across the villa allow the Trade winds to flow freely throughout common areas and each of the bedrooms. For those wanting a climate controlled environment, all the bedrooms and living spaces have an option for air conditioning.

The light and airy Master Bedroom is privately elevated above the Great Room. Open on two sides, the screened windows and sliding glass doors allow breeze to gently flow across the room. The luxury 4 post bed peers out over the pool to your right and the multiple shades of blue between the sky and the ocean directly ahead, reminding you that you are sleeping over the ocean. Step out onto the deck to get the full panoramic experience. The en-suite Master bath with new tile and a luxury double vanity also faces the water.

Two fun, poolside Queen Bedrooms on the main level are open to the courtyard and slightly elevated just a few steps above the pool. Two more bedrooms, each with King Beds, are on the lower level to accommodate even more guests and family. The wide outdoor porch spanning across both lower bedrooms leans out over the rocky shore.

The courtyard and pool are the center of the villa, inviting guests to gather and enjoy the views, the sunshine, and the sweet sound of the waves crashing below. Easy access to the kitchen and great room is the essence of the indoor/outdoor way of life. As the sun fades and the cool of the evening settles, relax under the stars while soaking in the hot tub. The many levels and corners at Villa Sorriso offer playful and sunny spots by day and a reaffirmation that you have found paradise each night.

About David White

We have been traveling the Caribbean islands for years and finally decided to buy this property in St Thomas.

Why David White chose Peterborg

Villa Sorriso means “house of smiles” in Italian. We hope you and your guests have many smiles while on the property. As a US territory, it enjoys the security of the US government and related US laws. It also has many restaurants and attractions for entertainment. St John is just a short ferry ride from Red Hook, and the world famous Magens Bay Beach is only 1 mile from the house. Its beautiful white sand beach and calm waters are a real joy. We hope you enjoy our house and surroundings as much as we do.

What makes this villa unique

The views from Villa Sorriso are amazing. You have a 180 degree view of the Atlantic and the surrounding BVI Islands. The first time we saw the property we fell in love with it.

The Best Outdoor Space

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. The outdoor space is spectacular. The main floor of the house connects to a covered outdoor dining area off the kitchen on one side and to the pool side on the other. The pool is delightful. Full to partial sun all day long. We spent countless hours sitting in the upper sitting area where it is shady and in or around the pool when we wanted the sun. The mosquito repellent system works perfectly. The property is lovingly maintained both inside and out. The week went by fast. Can not wait to come for another stay.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sorriso.....There could not be a more appropriate name for this property. It truly is a place that creates a Smile. It's perched high upon a cliff overlooking the beautiful blue waters and neighboring islands with a peaceful and tranquil setting. The many outdoor patio and balcony settings gives you plenty of space to share time with everyone, or if you need to have some quiet time there is a space for that, as well. We shared the property with family and friends and the layout of the property is perfect. We enjoyed just sitting by the pool and overlooking the many miles of beautiful surf and also cooking in the spacious kitchen and having dinner at the outdoor dining area. Everything we needed was available and convenient. There has been so much thought for details throughout the home for visitors to truly enjoy the property, right down to the music and stereo system. Anthony (property manager) was more than helpful, even before we got there. He was very accommodating of anything that we may need and answered our many questions. The restaurant recommendations were excellent!! Our only complaint....we didn't have more time to spend here!

Best vacation home ever

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sorriso offers something for everyone. I went with my young adult children and their significant others and we were on the go much of the time, snorkeling, boating, diving, zip lining, visiting neighborhood Islands and hiking. Our only regret was that we didn't have an extra week to simply enjoy all that Villa Sorriso has to offer. The views are incredible from each floor. The outdoor covered porch was where we ate and also played games. Each bedroom is so comfortable. We look forward to going back.

Life of Luxury

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Villa Sorriso is truly a luxurious affair. Everything about this vacation property is exquisite. From the beautiful pool overlooking the ocean to the gourmet kitchen to the large public spaces (inside and out) to the comfortable and well-appointed bedrooms and bathrooms, everything shouts luxury. We spent our week with a combination of staying on the property enjoying all of the amenities and taking day trips to party on Water Island, beaching it at beautiful Magen's Bay (only a short drive from Villa Sorriso) snorkeling on St. Johns and exploring St. Thomas. The weather and accommodations were perfect! I would give Villa Sorriso 6 stars if I could! We will definitely be back!

Very nice home

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nice with a fantastic view. It is well equipped with anything you would want for cooking and is a great house for a large party. The driveway is very steep and the house is not within walking distance to anything so that is an important consideration if you are planning on renting this house. The master bedroom is particularly nice with a panoramic view.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We are glad you enjoyed Villa Sorriso, and the panoramic oceanfront views. We hope you had a chance to visit many of the attractions that are close by, including the beautiful white sandy beach at Magen's Bay, which is only 1 mile away, Mahogany Run golf course which is only 2 miles away, or downtown which is 6 miles away. There are many attractions that are just a short drive. We've had some guests walk to Megan's bay, but we do suggest renting a car because, like most Caribbean islands, it's hilly. To my knowledge there are no high end ocean front villas within walking distance to all the major attractions. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.
