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.
David White purchased this Villa in 2014
Why David White chose Estate 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.

Breath taking views from the villa pool and a fun Party atmosphere for our party of 5 couples!
Altho St. Thomas got hit by 2 hurricanes, the spirit of the people living there was unscathed! Very nice folks in the shops and restaurants and always helpful. The plant life and flowers were once again abloom, which was a joy to see. We spent time and snorkeled at 4 or 5 different beaches and took the ferry to St. John's, which was fun. The Villa Sorriso was beautiful, comfortable and a pleasant surprise after 10 hours of flying from Seattle. We were able to find just about all the grocery items we needed for cooking several meals at the villa including fresh fish from local fishermen at the docks in Red Hook. We hired a chef for a 'surf and turf' type dinner at the Villa one evening. Chef Josh was/is a wonderful chef and person and we got his name and number from Justin, the Villa Mgr. I would be remiss if I didn't give a 'big shout out' to David, the owner of Sorriso. We had initially rented a different villa in St. Thomas but after the hurricanes, that villa needed repairs that couldn't be finished before our scheduled stay. We found Villa Sorriso and were very fortunate to have the dates open that we needed! David did everything he could for us to make sure our booking went smoothly including offering to wait for payment till our prior deposit was refunded. Thank-you David! The worst part was having to say good-bye to a beautiful island and villa. Would we recommend Villa Sorriso? Absolutely!!
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Villa Sorriso. Thank you for your kind words and think you for choosing to stay with us. We are pleased it worked out that we could accommodate you. It was a pleasure hosting you. We were blessed that our Villa sustained minimal damage during the 2 hurricanes and that we were able to quickly do repairs. Unfortunately many others weren’t so lucky. We look forward to hosting you again in the future.
Owner, Villa Sorriso
return visit confirms: Best Place to Stay
Villa Sorriso, St Thomas, is as lovely as ever! April weather was fantastic. It was great to get away from the East Coast chill. Some great restaurants are doing business but enjoyed most breakfasts and dinners prepared in our gourmet kitchen. The outdoor dining room shared a soft breeze and sounds of the ocean with us 24/7. The water at Magens Bay was heavenly and healing. (so was my room at the house). I recommend a boat outing. We island hopped and snorkeled. We enjoyed Jost Van Dyke and the Soggy Dollar. I treated myself to lots of lobster which was always on the menu. The views and the comfort of the house are amazing. Truly, Villa Sorriso is a "must book" get away. J. Turner, PHL
Spectacular villa with breathtaking views!
Paradise begins once you cross the threshold of this beautiful and well appointed home! Was so impressed with the quality and care taken in every detail throughout the villa and loved the cliffside pool, spacious "alfresco" dining areas and oceanfront hot tub. The bedrooms have the privacy and intimacy of a home, but the luxury feel of a hotel. With each bedroom having an ocean view, the sea will truly lull you to sleep! Although we enjoyed Magen's Bay and many other nearby attractions, I can see where one could get lost just spending their days in the magic of Villa Sorriso!
I have visited Villa Sorriso before, however not in the spring and not after a hurricane! I was hoping the islands fared well and Villa Sorriso was as inviting as before. The Villa survived admirably and received some improvements to an already graciously appointed home. The beautiful Fan Palm greeting you at the entry is recovering nicely. It's especially elegant with the new stone and shell entry next to it. The pair of resident Iguanas are still sunning in the palm below the decks and the views from the Villa and pool are spectacular as always. There's a new gas grill which we christened on our visit. We explored some new beaches and met some great people. It surpassed my expectations again!
Another incredible trip to St Thomas and Villa Sorriso
In late 2016 I took my adult children and their mates to this heavenly home. We had such an outstanding trip that I pulled some friends together and we went back last week. Irma and Maria hit the island pretty hard, but it is coming back quickly. Villa Sorriso was incredible!! We cooked in the beautiful kitchen and had our meals on one of the two covered porches overlooking the azure water and/or the pool. We also walked the stunningly beautiful roads around Villa Sorriso for exercise, and trekked down to Megan’s Bay on foot one day. I can’t think of a better villa in which to spend some time. Thank you to the Whites for your extraordinary attention to detail in your island home. Can’t wait to go back. Monica Rawles
Monica, Thank you for being a repeat customer/guest at Villa Sorriso and thank you for your kind words. We are so happy you and your friends enjoyed your stay. Thank you for keeping your reservation and for your trust in our ability to get back up and running to 5 star status. We were very lucky and our Villa didn't sustain any major damage after the 2 hurricane's, and the minor repairs were completed quickly. We are excited that St. Thomas is recovering quickly and all beaches and the downtown are back open for business. Thanks again for returning to Villa Sorriso. We look forward to hosting you again.
Best regards. Dave
