Property description

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose East End, St Thomas, USVI:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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!
