Gift Hill Villa


Sleeps 6
1 king bedroom
2 queen bedrooms
2 bathroom

Perched on a hillside with stunning panoramic views of the blue Caribbean Sea by day, the twinkling lights of St. Thomas by night and radiant sunsets, Gift Hill Villa is an ideal hillside retreat.

The Villa is five minutes from the fine dining & shopping of the village and ten minutes from the spectacular, world class National Park beaches.

Overlooking Chocolate Hole, Great Cruz Bay & Rendezvous Bay, the Villa allows you to come home to from the beach, swim in the pool, shower and go out for dinner with convenience.

The custom designed fresh water pool is enhanced with colorful tiles, and the large pool terrace provides a private area for sunbathing. The pool area provides and additional space for weddings and reunion celebrations.

The pool level has a two-story living room and a fully equipped modern kitchen. Large French doors open one end of the living room & indoor dining area to the pool area and panoramic views of the islands & sunsets. The kitchen is as efficiently designed as a ship’s galley, and features port hole windows with a spectacular view out to sea.

At dusk as the sun sets, and the light slowly fades, the villa undergoes a magical transformation. Stand on the pool terrace and watch the lights come to life inside and outside the villa. The lights were designed and hand-crafted in the Donald Schnell Studio and are the same lights that he created for some of the Caribbean’s most elegant resorts.

The Villa has three bedrooms. Two queen bedrooms are on the pool level with their own deck and shared bathroom off the hall. A master bedroom loft suite is on the top level with its own private deck, king size bed and master bath with two sinks.

The terrace which opens from the living room to the pool is an ideal place for outdoor dining. The Villa is perfect for honeymooners & anniversaries or small family gatherings. One or two couples often take the Gift Hill Villa, while a third couple or other guests needing additional space may also take the Gift Hill Garden Suite, a one-bedroom apartment suite below with a separate entry.
