About the property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Southwind is nestled in a mahogany forest in a gated, upscale, residential neighborhood, 850 feet above the historic Harbor of Charlotte Amalie. The large, shaded terrace and dining area overlook the Harbor and the 20x40 foot solar-heated swimming pool.

The kitchen and baths are all updated, as are all the furnishings. Southwind looks and feels like a Caribbean home, not a rental villa. We invite you to make 'SOUTHWIND YOUR HOME IN THE VIRGIN ISLANDS'.

At additional extra cost is a full day, private sail to St. John for snorkeling and swimming on a 44 foot yacht. Escort from the airport and maid service once per week are provided. Property manager always available. Pets Allowed, No Smoking.

About The Owner

As of December 6, 2017 we had our electric power restored and are repaired and available for guests.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2000

Why The Owner chose Solberg

We have traveled and rented villas throughout the Caribbean and found St. Thomas to be our favorite both for convenient travel and the abundance of things to do on the island. Make Southwind your home in the Virgin Islands!

What makes this villa unique

From the vantage point of 850 feet above the harbor, you can observe all the activity below without being part of it - unless you choose to. It is similar to viewing the ground below from an airplane.

Great location and great host!

  • 5 of 5

We took a chance and booked this trip out of Houston during Hurricane season. Little did we know we would just miss the storm and get trapped in paradise. The house is beautiful with a breath taking view. It accommodated our large group comfortably in a tropical home away from home. It is conveniently located less than 20 minutes from just about everything on the island. The hostess is super friendly and helpful as well! When the storm hit Houston the owner was very gracious in working with our unplanned extended stay. I would recommend this spot to anyone wanting to travel to the island with your friends and family.

Ultimate Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at this amazing private home tucked in the rain forest of St. Thomas. The views were exceptional from overlooking the Yacht Harbor to watching all the action from Hassel Island to Water Island. We read the history of this charming area and the night time view was the perfect lighting for dinner on the patio. We enjoyed rum by the 40' pool with adjoining party room. Perfect for ducking out if the sun, watching a game on the tv or keeping little ones entertained. I do think my favorite was the tropical gardens around the back of the home. I enjoyed walking through at various times of day to see new blooms, frogs and bees. You couldn't find a better place to call home base while enjoying the islands.

Great Family fun

This is a great place for a large group. The property is well maintained and beautiful. Very comfortable for all of us even my 17 mo grandson. We would rent this again. Pool is great too.

Southwind Villa Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have rented lovely villas in some of the most beautiful places, but our group agreed hands down that Southwind on St. Thomas tops the list. The setting can't be beat, in an upscale gated mahogany forest, with a vista to die for! The villa offers every amenity imaginable, including a huge heated pool, a modern kitchen and updated bathrooms, a large barbecue grill, and a veranda that we never wanted to leave. Southwind is very tastefully furnished with the comforts of the guests in mind. We never rented a villa so well stocked with staples, and so beautifully maintained. The property is landscaped with exotic tropical flora with dramatic lighting at night. We spent several evenings dining on the candle lit veranda overlooking the beautiful harbor of Charlotte Amalie. There were several lovely restaurants within walking distance and the beaches were a short drive. Each day we enjoyed sitting on the porch or around the pool, watching the cruise ships come and go, the seaplane taking off and landing, and on one occasion a whale and her calves breaching just beyond the harbor! It was an ever changing scene that we never tired of watching.

Debbie, the property manager, met us at the airport and was so accommodating. She was there to answer all of our questions and to make sure we enjoyed our stay.

If you have a group of friends or are a family looking for the perfect place to get away from it all, you couldn't pick a better place than Southwind. We look forward to returning there again.

Southwind Villa - the perfect stay for a large family group

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Southwind Villa, with its breathtaking views, the spacious layout and fantastic pool area. This was a perfect stay for our two families incl. 6 teenagers. The host was very kind - picked us up from the airport, guided us to the villa and gave us all the necessary instructions to ensure a very pleasant stay. I can only recommend staying at the Southwind Villa and would love to come back again!
