Overview

About the property

Gated, Peaceful, Comfortable Villa has all your family/group needs or wants.

The view from this beautiful villa affords views of the mesmerizing Charlotte Amalie harbor with cruise ships, sea planes, yachts, marine ports, downtown and the neighboring St. John, St. Croix & Hassel island vistas. Centrally located and 1,200 feet above it all, you feel like you’re on top of the world!

Caribbean balmy breezes typically flow throughout the property keeping the house at a very comfortable temperature during the day and at night. While sitting on the deck or covered veranda watching the weather flow by, you may never want to leave the property.

This special estate starts with a gated driveway and leads you up a few stairs to one of the most impressive views you will ever experience. All for your private enjoyment and relaxation!

The fully furnished home has 4 bedrooms, each featuring a king or queen size bed and 3 bathrooms, all containing walk-in showers. Everyone in your party will be comfortable as everything you need has been anticipated and supplied.

There is a master suite upstairs, as well as a beautiful new guest suite downstairs. The Villa is perfect for families or couples and can handle up to 8 people easily.

Ceiling fans are located throughout the house and 3 of the 4 bedrooms have split air conditioning units, though the majority of our guests enjoy being lulled to sleep by the singing of our varied families of tree frogs, while being caressed by gentle, cool tropical breezes.

The kitchen is totally remodeled and fully equipped including a 6 burner Electrolux gas range top, 2 GE Profile ovens, a stainless steel side-by-side Whirlpool refrigerator/freezer with icemaker, Maytag dishwasher, Samsung stacked washer/dryer, Cuisinart coffee maker, GE Profile microwave, Danby wine cooler downstairs, a toaster, blender & much, much more.

And Yes! There is even a small cocktail plunge pool if anyone needs cooling off, along with a hot tub from where you can privately enjoy the magnificent Harbor and Town vistas, as well as the cruise ships' sunrise arrivals & sundown departures.

Wi-Fi is also available throughout the house and deck.

There are two Family Room areas located on the upper and lower levels, both equipped with a big screen HDTV with Satellite & DVD player.

Both living rooms have comfortable seating areas for lounging or leisure reading.

The dining room table accommodates up to 8 adults and there is also plenty of outside seating on the deck at our Tropitone dining table with 8 swivel/rocker chairs. A list of private chefs and catering services are also available from the owners, along with local nearby restaurants where take-out is always an option.

About Bill Anderson

We have lived on St. Thomas for most of our adult lives and have finally decided it was time to move back to the States after living in paradise and raising our 2 kids. We have a very strong attachment to the Virgin Islands and are leaving behind many great friends we have made over the many years . We have lived the dream for the past 30+ years and invite you to come do the same!!

Bill Anderson purchased this villa in 2008

Why Bill Anderson chose South Side

Our home is high on the hill to catch the cool Caribbean breezes... and a perfect perch to watch the beautiful weather go by! There are very few places on St. Thomas with a view like ours. Enjoy our gated property, at peace with the beauty that surrounds you, with all amenities at your fingertips.

Centrally located, everything is 10 - 15 minutes away. Come experience the Caribbean life as a 'local'....not a tourist!

What makes this villa unique

We'd like to share the Caribbean way of life at our beautiful home with you. It would be hard to find a more comfortable place to spend your time than on the deck looking out at the breath-taking view! We know you will enjoy the harbor, neighboring islands & town views from just about anywhere you are in the house. Also, watch for the Caribbean parakeets and Bananaquits that fly around the property or simply relax on one of several decks with terrific views and gentle breezes. Villa Encantada's proximity to all attractions (beaches, water sports, historic downtown, duty free shopping, fine dining, golf course, tree top canopy tours, sight seeing, ferry docks, airport & more) makes it very easy to enjoy all that our beautiful island offers.

I can speak for everyone that stayed in the house that this property made our vacation. Not only did Bill and Britt work with us to help make our vacation something's my to remember Mac did a great job helping us with anything that we needed. I would most definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to enjoy a relaxing time on St.Thomas. Once again thanks for everything and you definitely have a returning costumer in me!!!

Truly Amazing View!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a great time at your home! We had plenty of space and loved drinking coffee on the deck every morning. We loved watching the cruise ships come in. Loved having air conditioning in the bedrooms. I was worried when the rest of the home didn't. But it was suprisingly comfortable. The main king size room was so awesome to wake up with such a spectacular view. The driving in St Thomas takes time to get used to when you are on the left side of the road. Roads are narrow and ruff. But the home was definitely worth the work to get there.

Thanks so much!

If you are looking for 3 stars out of 5, then this is the place for you

  • 3 of 5

My family and I who range in age from 40-63, were very excited to stay at this residence after seeing the photos online and to visit my sister who has lived on the island for 3 years. However we all left feeling dissatisfied after it was all said and done. The best thing about this house is the view and outside deck area. However, there were quite a few negatives.

- The dishwasher was not working at all and they did not supply any dishwashing soap, but they did have dirty and smelly sponges for your use

- A couple of the shower handles in the showers would fall off every time you would turn them

- A couple of the mattresses smelled of mildew

- Two broken plastic chairs on the deck

- Quite misleading pool description and photo, It was not really a pool it was more of an oversized bath tub

- If you stay here be sure to keep your conversations to a COMPLETE whisper if you plan on hanging outside after dark and don't even think about playing background music, because you will have "pissed off neighbors" and receive multiple calls and emails from the owner.

- Even though they have a generator, it would run all of the time and was loud and even billowed black smoke a couple of times.

My family and I have rented many homes from this website in the past but this one has been our least favorite by far. You win some you lose some.

Owner's Response: So very sorry to hear that your stay wasn’t as pleasant as you had hoped. Although I can assure you it would have been much more unpleasant if we hadn’t talked the neighbors out of calling the police for your very late night disturbance of the peace. I do apologize about the dishwasher, as I did before you arrived. It has since been repaired. We have visited the house several times since your stay, and found no evidence of the other problems you mentioned. The website that all of our guests can view has a complete description of the house and pics, along with all rules that we ask that people follow. May we suggest that, when you rent from VRBO in the future, you take the time to read all pertinent information so that this type of unpleasantness doesn’t happen to you again?

Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Britt were very easy to work with. Their home is amazingly beautiful, very spacious, modern and well kept. The views of the harbor are breath taking! From sun up to sun down, it is perfection at its finest! Don't miss the opportunity to experience time in paradise. It is a hidden gem for sure!

Awesome villa

  • 5 of 5

My husband, sister and brother-in-law stayed at VEST for a week in November. it was really awesome! Billy was super helpful and answered all of our questions. The view is spectacular! We enjoyed watching the cruise ships come into and leave Charlotte Amalie harbor. The kitchen is well stocked with pots/pans/dishes and we cooked most of our dinners at the villa. We enjoyed coffee and evening cocktails on the deck too. The pool is small but we spent most of our time at the beach. Ice cream at Udder Delite and a banana daiqueri at Mountain Top are musts!
