A large, beautifully appointed and equipped studio apartment, 600 sq. ft., with a kitchenette and a large private deck for sunning or grilling. The condo has an easy walk down to the beach, and large media area in the room, and a double sink bathroom. This is perfect for two people and has been occupied many times for couples on their honeymoon, but also works for parents with a child who sleeps in a crib or on an air mattress.
Location: Magens Bay, Northside, USVI - St. Thomas, Caribbean (Northside, on Beach, 20 minutes from airport.)
Beautiful, beachfront with water access, studio/condo, on the incomparable Magen's Bay, one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean. Villa Eau Claire, where the condo is located, is the closest occupied property to the main beach on Magen's Bay. The villa is a short climb up from a deck with a shower, located on a pocket beach that is entirely sandy. The deck is located one hundred yards from Little Magen's Beach, the largest pocket beach on Magen's Bay and the only beach on St. Thomas that permits nude or topless bathing. Of course, with a private deck, sheltered on both sides, many of the guests go topless right at the Villa.
This is one of the only three condos on Magen's Bay. Other condos are not directly on the water at all, and none of them have their own beach and deck.
The condo is large, about 600 sq ft, with another 250 sq ft of covered deck, where sunning in the afternoon is easy. The entire condo was renovated in 2007, with new furnishings and art work. The television is served by Dishnetwork and offers all of HBO. There is a library of videos for your pleasure, and others can be added upon request.
The bathroom has a double sink and vanity, with a shower. The sink stands were hand made to fit the location.
There is a very functional kitchenette for food preparation, including a microwave, sink, stove top, and all of the appropriate utensils and appliances. There is a refrigerator for cold storage.
The unit is air-conditioned, but the air-conditioning is only really needed in late July to the end of September. Otherwise, it is more pleasant to have the three large fans on and leave the slidding doors open for the breeze and to hear the waves at night.
The studio/condo opens out, to walk up to the car or down to the beach, and the villa is equipped with a untility room with a washer and drying.
Villa Eau Claire is a luxury, high end villa, with everything less than two years old. The location is unique; meaning that nothing else is like it on Magens' Bay. The unit is extremely quiet, very private, and romantic.
