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.
For those guests who enjoy Barbecuing, there is a large outdoor grill available for your use.
And to ensure that you have uninterrupted electrical power, Villa Encantada has its own generator with an automatic transfer switch. So you will never be without power no matter what happens with our illustrious electric company.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: 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!!

Why the Owner Chose Solberg, St Thomas, USVI:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
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.
