This stunning and luxurious 5 bedroom St. Thomas villa has become a favorite destination for visitors of all ages, whether families with young or grown children, couples seeking a romantic getaway, or a beloved group of friends. It offers complete privacy and pure, soul-renewing relaxation, yet is close enough to town as well. This luxury home was expanded by an artful architect and has a spacious, open feel with high quality finishes throughout. The common areas are large and inviting and the bedrooms private and peaceful. Once you've experienced this amazing location, you'll want to come back again and again, whether sharing the beauty with new friends or perhaps returning with the same fun crew every year. With the pool, private beach, and breathtakingly beautiful views and sunsets, you could stay on the property for your entire stay and feel fortunate indeed. There are also lots of exciting things to do nearby for those seeking other adventures, but many of the guests say that best part of all is staying at the villa, amidst such beauty, with an idyllic beach just steps away down a private path. The waves will lull you to sleep and the smell of ylang ylang and gardenia will soothe your senses. Come relax with friends and/or family and soak in the ocean and serene privacy. We have a friendly and helpful house manager who will greet you at the airport and, once you get your rental car, escort you to the villa. She will give you the latest information on what’s happening on St. Thomas and answer questions you may have. For an additional fee, she can also have the villa stocked with groceries and/or arrange for massages, an in-house chef, etc… Villa Serena is located in Peterborg, an upscale neighborhood that offers the best of worlds, with a wild and dramatic beauty that feels worlds apart but is conveniently located to Magens Bay, Mahogany Run Golf Course, and downtown Charlotte Amalie. Magens beach, barely 5 minutes away, has been noted as one of the world's most beautiful beaches by both Conde Nast and National Geographic. The bay's northwest exposure means its waters are usually calm and turtles, conch, tarpon and other fish are commonly spotted. There's also plenty to do besides swimming and sunbathing, like hiking the nature trail, kayaking, and paddle boat and sailboat rentals. On your way back from the beach, be sure to stop at the beloved Famous Delight for delicious ice cream cones or an intoxicating, tropical twist on the American milkshake. Some visitors rave that the milkshakes here are among the best in the world! Guests with children may also want to visit Coral World Ocean Park, where you can pet a shark, hand feed a stingray, and visit with lorikeets, which will flock to your arm when offered a cup of nectar. You can even swim with sea lions. Just a few of the many other fun nearby destinations include the Butterfly Garden, Zip Line Park, and nearby St. John. Downtown Charlotte Amalie, known for its Danish colonial architecture and history, is also just a short drive away and offers some of the best shopping in the Caribbean, including many duty-free bargains at below stateside prices and no sales tax. If you're in the market for diamonds, watches or jewelry, it's the place to go... Villa Serena is an unforgettable place to vacation. Book your stay soon so that you can look forward to heavenly week, or two or three...More
