Beachfront East End: Large Home and Guest House
$2 490 000
Located on the East End of St. Thomas (USVI), blocks away from the waterfront village of Red Hook and some of the islands best beaches, Villa Maitland is an historic “Eden on the Shores” on the furthest tip of a private gated community of luxury homes. With backdrop of nearly constant year-round 80-degree temperatures and tall coconut palms swaying in the cool ocean breeze, it is truly a tropical paradise. Overlooking the crashing waves and its own private white-sand beach, with sweeping, unobstructed views of St. John, Tortola, and tiny, uninhabited islands, this truly original addition to the rental market boasts an expansive three bedroom main house as well as a three bedroom guest cottage. Enjoy the island breezes by the pool, a game of horseshoes or an evening on the beach looking at all the stars. The grounds include a beachfront tiki hut, koi pond, atrium garden, private pier and wooden deck and a hammock strung between coconut palms just feet from the lapping surf. Beyond the beach, a sheltered cove gives way to the phenomenal snorkeling and diving of Pelican Point. Simply standing at the end of the pier under wheeling pelicans, watching graceful sailboats and luxurious yachts ply the warm, azure waters, or counting shooting stars among the clear constellations of the spangled nighttime sky, you'll feel relaxed and at home in your private tropical paradise.
The fully furnished home boasts cavernous vaulted ceilings, mahogany woodwork, and open design, Villa Maitland is both grand and comfortable. The decor of the main house is typical West-Indian and includes many antiques; the cottage furnishings are casual and contemporary. Flat-screen TVs, wireless broadband, and a poolside game room with a large, antique pool table add comfort and ease to this serene environment.
The house and guest cottage can sleep 10 in beds, and 10 children in sofa beds comfortably with en suite and additional bathrooms throughout.
Unsurpassed craftsmanship, beauty and luxury: Villa Maitland is the perfect mix of luxury living and a laid-back island pace of life – there is so much more to describe – but you must see it for yourself!
