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 Estate Lerkenlund

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed the home with wonderful views of Charlotte Amalie harbor & surrounding islands. Billy met us day of arrival & was extremely informative of house & inside scoop on restaurants and surrounding site & activities. Kitchen has all of the items needed. Nice AV setup & no problems with internet access. Several restaurants nearby & easy drive to downtown area & close to Magen's Bay with beautiful beach! Enjoyed deck with hot tub & cooling off in pool. Enjoyed being serenaded by the tree frogs at night. Chartered full day trip to BVI with See&Ski with snorkeling, sightseeing, stopping for lunch & going to Soggy Dollar Bar! Cannot wait for next visit to USVI & hope to return to Villa Encantada! A+ stay!!

                                                                  We were very pleased to help you celebrate your anniversary!

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!!!

                                                                  Becky D.Jonesboro, AR

                                                                  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!
