Overview

About the property

NEWLY RENOVATED! 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo, facing the beautiful Caribbean Sea!

WHITE SAND. PALM TREES. STUNNING CARIBBEAN WATERS OF SPECTACULAR SHADES OF BLUE.

WELCOME TO MARGUERITE-A-VILLA!

Newly renovated and tastefully decorated with tropical island furnishings, Marguerite-a-Villa is a 2-bedroom, 2 bath, beachfront, oceanfront condo with all the amenities of home – but with all the excitement of a tropical getaway!

Nestled in Cowpet West -- a gated community between the St. Thomas Yacht Club and the Ritz Carlton Resort in St. Thomas’ desirable East End -- our condo sits above the private white sand beach of Cowpet Bay amid beautifully maintained grounds, lushly landscaped with tropical flowers.

Unwind on the beach below Marguerite-a-Villa, relaxing on a chaise or in a hammock under the warm tropical sun. Or if you prefer, lounge in the cool shade under one of the gently swaying palm trees. Maybe take a swim in the crystal clear, warm ocean waters, or in the beautifully landscaped pool with its blue-stone waterfall and grotto jacuzzi. Have a bite to eat at our beach-side restaurant while enjoying the cool tropical breezes and stunning, panoramic views. Maybe rent a kayak or snorkel gear at the beach shop and explore the crystalline waters of Cowpet Bay. Then sip a late-day cocktail on our front deck, listening to the softly rolling waves below while you enjoy breathtaking views all the way to St. James Island!

Then in the evening, head into Red Hook village (5 minutes away) to have dinner, or just to walk through town and experience the eclectic vibe of the open-air bars and restaurants and boutique shops -- with so many different personalities – before heading back to your fully air-conditioned condo for a good night’s sleep before your next day’s adventure.

For a more active day, pack a cooler and spend the day beach-hopping to the different beautiful Caribbean beaches within minutes of Marguerite-a-Villa. Or maybe charter a snorkel trip or day sail and explore the waters surrounding St. Thomas and St. John. Or venture further afield to the exotic and beautiful Tortola, or Virgin Gorda, or the party center of the BVI’s, Jost VanDyke -- all within easy access of our Red Hook ferry dock, just 5 minutes away!

Another fabulous day trip is to enjoy a quick, 15 minute ferry trip across Pillsbury Sound to the laid-back but fun-filled St. John to visit one or more of the island’s many pristine, white-sand beaches. As your ferry docks in Cruz Bay, you’ll see St. John’s many vibrant and multi-colored waterfront bars, restaurants, and shopping boutiques. Enjoying Cruz Bay's waterfront happy hours and/or shopping is a relaxing and fun way to end a long day at the beach. Taking a day trip to St. John – or an evening, happy-hour, or dinner excursion trip there, is a always a memorable way to spend a day or two (and some evenings!) while visiting Marguerite-a-Villa!

Also on St. Thomas are many opportunities for snuba, kite-boarding, para-sailing, surfing, and all kinds of water-sports. In addition, St. Thomas offers many eco-tour adventures both above and below sea level; zip-lining; an ice palace, and a championship, par-70, 18-hole golf course golf course replete with cliff-side tee boxes and tropical forests and pools that overlook the Caribbean Sea!

Enjoy shopping? Spend a morning or afternoon in the expansive, outdoor Havensight Mall at the cruise ship docks. Or venture a bit further down the road to downtown Charlotte Amalie where you will find upscale shops lining the waterfront and the charming, narrow passage-ways of Charlotte Amalie. These shops offer duty-free bargains on the finest names in jewelry, watches, cameras, crystal, china, clothing, and more.

Or take a 5 minute stroll “over the hill” to the elegant Ritz for more dining choices – all with beautiful views as well.

Come to Marguerite-a-Villa for the adventure of a lifetime!

About Marguerite Hefferon

Marguerite and George are professionals living in the New York metro area who have been vacationing in the Virgin Islands since 1994. Our entire family, including our three children and our extended family, all love the islands -- and our eldest son was even married here in 2009!

Marguerite Hefferon purchased this condo in 2014

Why Marguerite Hefferon chose East End

While we have vacationed on many Caribbean islands, we always found ourselves returning here to the Virgin Islands. We fell in love with Cowpet Bay about 4 years ago because it had everything we wanted in a Caribbean vacation: Cowpet has an uncrowded, white sand, beautifully palm-fringed beach where we could relax in the Caribbean quiet and have privacy. Yet within minutes of Cowpet is a vibrant little town and and all kinds of exciting activities and adventures. Cowpet has one of the best beaches on the island, has beautifully landscaped grounds, wonderful cooling breezes, and spectacular views of the Caribbean!

We love waking up to the stunning views out to St. James Island, while sipping coffee on the lanai watching the little boats dock next door at the Yacht Club. Some mornings we stroll down to the quiet beach and flop on beach chairs with our coffee and books while we decide what adventure we'd like to plan for the day.

We also love the convenience of Cowpet Bay's location just minutes to a variety of other beautiful beaches, and 5 minutes to Red Hook with its varied collection of bars and restaurants, and a ferry dock that can take us to so many different islands and so many different adventures -- all at our fingertips.

If you are the kind of person who might decide while you are swimming at 4:00 that you'd like to grab a quick shower and hop the 5:00 ferry to St. John for happy hour along the waterfront, then this is the place for you! Or if you're the kind of person who likes to stay on the beach til it's dark, then cook a quiet meal when the sun goes down, this is still the place for you! And that's what we love about our condo -- it offers a wonderful mix of serene quiet, tropical beauty, or a party atmosphere -- depending on your mood and personality!

What makes this condo unique

Everything you could possibly need is right on-site! The white sand beach is just steps out the front door. 2 restaurants, bars, a beautiful pool, tennis, water sports shop -- all just a stroll down the beach. And views of the blue, blue Caribbean that go on forever!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just returned from a wonderful stay... Miss starting my day on the balcony watching the sun rise with a cup a coffee! Great place to stay, perfect amenities, awesome view! Our 11 year old loved being there and had a hard time deciding pool or beach... Plenty to do right out the doorstep, great pool area, beach, food options and of course, drink options! We all met some wonderful friends and look forward to returning to hang again! I would definitely recommend you book a week... Or three now! We're already booking next year!!

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family of four. We enjoyed our stay and loved the location, with several restaurants a short distance away. The condo has a well-equipped kitchen and is nicely furnished. The views and the beach were beautiful.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely review! We were happy that you think our beach and the condo views are beautiful! We just love the beach here at Cowpet -- the white sand, the palm trees and grape trees, the privacy, the quiet. And the views off our deck -- either of the beach to the left or straight ahead to St. James Island and the channel -- is just gorgeous, and relaxing! We hope to see you again next year! ~Marguerite

Ideal vacation location and ideal condo

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the most relaxing and enjoyable family vacation we have taken. We have two teenagers with short attention spans who stayed entertained by visiting various beaches and having the private beach next to the condo. The condo was amazingly well equipped; we found everything from a fully furnished kitchen to bug spray and band aides! We made some meals there with no difficulty, and were able to relax as we had everything we needed. Thank you Margueritte for a wonderful place to stay!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you had such a great time during your stay at Marguerite-a-Villa!!! And thanks for all your compliments on our condo. We do try to keep our condo well-stocked so guests have what they need while vacationing. Thanks also for the compliments on our well-equipped kitchen -- from saute pans and lobster pots to martini glasses and drink shakers! ~Marguerite

Very Pleased

  • 5 of 5

Nice condo, well equipped and provisioned. Great location on Cowpet Bay with nice beach and relative quiet. Facilities (pool, pool bar, restaurants) are also nice. Greatly appreciated closeness to Red Hook restaurants, stores, night life, and harbor.

Owner's Response: So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! Thanks for your comments on how nice our condo and our resort is. And we have to agree with you -- we love the convenience to Red Hook. It's always a fun way to spend the evening or hop to another island for more adventuring! ~Marguerite

Winter getaway

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very nice, the pictures are accurate. What stood out the most to us was how quiet it was, so very relaxing. Also very close to Red Hook, but you definitely need a car.

Our only complaint was the washer was not working properly, we notified the property manager and she said that the owner of the condo was aware, the lid would not lock so the clothes would not spin. Very frustrating!

And the other thing was the balcony was loaded with ants, you couldn't put your feet down otherwise they were climbing up your legs.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you liked our condo and found it relaxing! And that you recommended it as a great spot for a "Romantic Getaway" :) Thanks so much!! But I have to say that we have NEVER in three years had a complaint about ants on the balcony (or any bug problem), so I was very sorry to hear that was your experience. I can only imagine that something sweet might have accidentally been left on the balcony floor, attracting the ants. We have never had to spray wholesale and chose not to because of spray's negative effects, especially on children and the environment. However, we do leave bug spray in the condo for guests who choose to use it. I also was sorry to read about your problem with our new washer/dryer! I was so glad to hear from my manager Brittany that she was able to help you get the spin cycle to work! The machine is a high-end, high-efficiency, washer/dryer less than a year old and still under warranty, so the problem you experienced should never have happened. It is being addressed. My apologies. Best regards, Marguerite

Great View!

  • 4 of 5

Nicely appointed waterfront unit with the perfect view. The unit was clean, well maintained, very nicely furnished and appeared to be recently updated. The only draw back is lack of live TV. There are 3 flat screen TVs but no cable or satellite - only Roku. It does seem for the price, you should be able to watch the news, sports, pbs or any other live presentation. Otherwise it was a 5.

Owner's Response: Thank you for all your lovely comments about our condo! We appreciate that you noticed Marguerite-a-Villa was well maintained, nicely furnished and had a "perfect" view!! We are sorry you were disappointed with the TV service we provide. We actually "upgraded" to streaming Roku about 6 months ago because we thought it offered more viewing variety for our guests (especially with so many people now using their smart phones for news and sports updates). The new Roku service offers probably thousands of TV shows and movies available through content providers such as Neflix, HBO, and Hulu (and we do have PBS - not sure what happened with that). It also provides a few streaming news stations (including NBC), and some sports stations (including limited ESPN and other sports stations). Sorry again that you were disappointed that with that part of your vacation with us, but glad to hear that otherwise you were pleased with your stay! Best, Marguerite

The property exceeded our expectations. We couldn't have made a better pick. Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would gladly return if our travels take us back to St Thomas.
