Villa Amour was a dream vacation. The road in was an adventure worth the destination. The view was breathtaking. The villa was everything promised and more. The beach at the end of the road was probably the best part of our vacation.
Secluded, clean, beautiful water. You could walk the entire beach and not see another person. A perfect place to just enjoy the beauty of the island. The only negative feature was not having air conditioning on the first floor of the house.
Great home with private pool, hot tub and views to wake up to every day. We had 8 people and the 4 bedroom suites with own bath plus a half bath was great! The glass doorway opening up to a covered sitting area then to the infinity pool & hot tub was breath-taking. We have been many places, but this was the most beautiful views of all--like a rain forest. Also, we walked to basically a private beach below.
Villa Amour was a nearly perfect place to call home for our family of five when we visited St. Thomas last week. It is a very well maintained four bedroom with a pool, hot tub, and a view that is breathtaking. Rick (owner) was easily reachable prior to our trip, was available if needed, and should be very proud of the wonderful home he built. Of the many positives, it is a comfortable home (2 upstairs rooms have a/c, 2 downstairs with fans, all w/ensuite bathrooms), has a nice chef's kitchen and well furnished. Great place for kids (very young ones be cognizant of art/sculpture collection). While the home itself is very private, you're never more than 20 minutes drive from most of the island's major attractions. The house could comfortably accommodate 7-8 people. Would recommend renting a Jeep (the road down the hill is bumpy, but was fun to drive). There's a gorgeous and very private beach at the end of the road -- easy 5 min drive.
Initially unsure when we first arrived due to road to get there and cool overcast day. Pool was cold but after days of adventures and hotter days, realized how perfect it all was. Great breezes and refreshing pool made fire a great place to return home to. Ride to and from house became an adventure itself. Regarding the house, it's beautifully maintained, great views, great art work and gives you a feel for the culture versus a boring hotel room. All towels, beach and bath along with all the other necessities provided so less hassle at airport. Very comfortable beds with fans and air (not really needed but available in 2 B/R if needed). Great for family entertaining and socializing open to great outdoors. Beach at bottom of road very secluded and mysterious. Would absolutely stay here again. Away from hustle and bustle but still close to everything. Nadels at top of road was convenient and have is some discounts on quantity purchases. Not the norm but gives you a great experience and appreciation for the culture. Highly recommend
All the reviews you have read about what a wonderful home Villa Amour is are all true. It felt hard to believe that my family was actually staying in such an amazing home, with equally amazing views of the ocean and nearby islands. Coming down the grand staircase each morning and looking directly out a wide-open glass wall, continuing on into what looks like an infinite ocean was something I can never get enough of. And what a luxury for all three of our children to have not only their own bedrooms, but also their own beautiful bathrooms - that's living the good life! Because of food allergies, traveling can be hard for our family. All the stress of eating out wasn't at all necessary because of the very well equipped, large kitchen. We prepared and enjoyed all of our meals in this home without any difficulty. The adventure-filled drive down to what felt like a private beach, all to ourselves was especially memorable. It was palm tree lined with perfect sand and ocean waves that my family loved to play in. Honestly, it felt like something from a movie - too good to be true! As others have mentioned, you definitely need something on par with a Jeep. At the end of our visit, we had to wash the Jeep from top to bottom, due to the adventurous drives to our "secret beach", just a few minutes from the house. Rick, the owner of Villa Amour, was very kind and helpful to our family and was available whenever we needed him. Now, back home in minus zero degree wind chills and snow, I will always remember living like a queen in an exotic home where you don't ever need your down parka!
