general description

South Palm is located in the exclusive Virgin Grand Estates, which is a neighborhood of recently built, high-quality, multi million dollar vacation homes. South Palm sits at an elevation of about 290 feet with very pretty views of Great Cruz Bay, the Caribbean Sea, St. Thomas and other islands off in the distance. You�ll also enjoy colorful sunset views and the twinkling lights of St. Thomas at night. As of November of 2006, South Palm is the only house on its drive and it has no abutting neighbors. This is a very peaceful and private location with very little traffic and discreet clothing optional sunbathing. This is also a villa for sun lover's, with sun on the pool deck from early morning to sunset. It�s a 5 minute walk to the beach, restaurants, fitness room, spa and shops at the Westin Beach Resort, below you, but if you linger at the beach bar, it�s a bit longer walking up the hill. The many restaurants, bars, shops and other delights of the village of Cruz Bay are a 10-15 minute drive, entirely on paved roads.

Villa South Palm is a Pool Villa that has been four years in the planning and construction. South Palm is located above the Westin Beach Resort in the prestigious Virgin Grand Estates. At South Palm, you will enjoy beautiful views of Great Cruz Bay and the Caribbean Sea, with changing hues, as the sun moves across the sky. Evenings display fiery, golden sunsets and the twinkling lights of St. Thomas. The Villa owners, custom homebuilders from St. John Indiana, are pleased to share their piece of Caribbean paradise with the world. Truly, magnificent!

South Palm, a four bedroom Pool Villa, features each bedroom as a Master Suite, each identical in size.

Furnished with tropical Caribbean furniture, each Master Suite has a king bed, TV, water view and private bath. All showers are oversized 4 feet by 6 feet, three of which are outside, open air. Two bedrooms have private balconies while the other two bedrooms share a brick paved sun terrace all with ocean views. The two-sided veranda delivers shelter from the sun at any time of the day. Each and every room is individually air conditioned to ensure total comfort, should you desire. The kitchen, dinette and great room also offer ocean views. Custom Brazilian cherry cabinets with granite countertops grace the kitchen, laundry room, powder room and the four master bath suites. The laundry room is located on the main level for ultimate convenience with state of the art washer and dryer. Custom hammered copper sinks and bronze fixtures in every room add to the ambiance of a luxury vacation Villa. Custom tile including coral stone floors and a coral stone outdoor shower add to the feeling of being a million miles from home.

All four bedrooms are air conditioned and identical in size and all face southwest to capture the views through screened French doors. All the bedrooms have king beds, a satellite TV in an armoire and adequate closet space. Each has a tiled bath with granite counters, Brazilian cherry cabinets, copper sinks and bronze fixtures, and an oversized shower. Three of the bedrooms also have coral stone outdoor showers. The upper level and main level bedrooms have private balconies while the two lower level bedrooms share a private 450 sq ft brick sun terrace with access to the pool. All towels and linens for 8 people are included.

A gourmet kitchen with beautiful custom made Brazilian cherry cabinets, granite countertops and coral stone floors. The kitchen is centered on a 6-burner gas stove with a hood and oven. Other appliances include a s/s refrigerator/freezer, s/s dishwasher, garbage compactor, microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, and abundant cookware and dinnerware. There is a half bath (powder room) and a handsome laundry room off the kitchen. A built in gas grill is outside the kitchen on the deck, protected from the occasional shower.

South Palm was designed with families in mind, with all the bedrooms under one roof, interior stairs and two bedrooms at ground level. This is also an excellent home for 2-4 couples, or honeymooners or lovers looking for some extra privacy. The owner welcomes weddings and this would be a great function house because the condos and hotel rooms of the Westin are (a walk) below you. Overall, South Palm is a villa that shows meticulous planning and excellent taste in the design and construction of the house and its surroundings.

South Palm, with its brick paved pool deck overlooking Great Cruz Bay is the perfect location for weddings. The stunning Caribbean backdrop accentuates the romance of wedding ceremonies and offers a wonderful setting for photographic and video keepsakes. The property is 100% professionally landscaped with native stone walls throughout the entrance, the veranda with built-in outdoor grill, the pool deck and the sun terrace. Custom wrought iron West Indian style railings abound the pool, balconies, and the inside staircase. All bedrooms have access to the main house, as they are all under one roof via the custom tiled staircase. A great touch for families with children.

The sunsets from the great room, which features a vaulted tongue and groove cypress ceiling, are absolutely fabulous. The southwesterly veranda overlooks the pool and the Caribbean Sea and enjoys cooling trade wind breezes. Sit on the veranda and observe the constant changing of the guard amongst the sailboats in Great Cruz Bay. A ten-minute drive puts you in the heart of Cruz Bay's restaurants and shops.

    We traveled with a large group of friends and family, with ages ranging from 1 to 85. Everyone absolutely loved Villa South Palm. This was our fourth trip to St. John but first villa rental. We love Caneel Bay (duh) but cannot always afford it. We also like Battery Hill. The villa was spacious, the floor-plan could not be better for a large group as each room is equally appointed (the only difference is one room does not have an outside shower, no big deal). The living space was open and airy, and of course the views are fantastic. When we arrived, we were greeted at the ferry and given a tour of the residence. The AC was out and we were notified when we arrived. It was supposed to be fixed …

The living space was open and airy, and of course the views are fantastic. When we arrived, we were greeted at the ferry and given a tour of the residence. The AC was out and we were notified when we arrived. It was supposed to be fixed the next day when the part arrived by seaplane (if you have been to the Caribbean you know where this story is going). Long story short, the AC was repaired three days later. We had small children that were literally sweltering and called Property Manager. He was so accommodating, offering to move us to a larger villa, which we declined. He rushed the repair and offered a reasonable reduction of our rate. He absolutely handled the situation perfectly which above everything else is why I recommend this villa. Things aren't always perfect and it is so comforting to know you will be treated right. They are the best management company I have ever dealt with when traveling. Now, a few tips- rent your jeep with L and L. This time we used Courtesy and had to wait at the rental agency for ages! L and L meets you at the ferry. It makes a big difference after a day of traveling. We were traveling with children and rented gear from Island Baby, which was amazing. We also shipped diapers, etc. ahead via Amazon (Island Baby held our packages for us). Restaurants- Sun Dog Cafe at Mongoose Junction is our new thing. Wow. Food is amazing and much less crowded than other spots. Cheap too.

  • Amazing house, family friendly

    We loved our week long stay at South Palm. We traveled with three adults and two young kids (4 and 1). The house was wonderful for small kids, as all of the bedrooms are accessed from the same house. The views of St Thomas and the bays were lovely. You can't see any neighbors from the pool/deck and it does feel very private. We could hear some construction activity but it wasn't a problem. The house was very clean, well stocked and free of bugs (an issue some other houses apparently have). The pool was the perfect temp and the chairs around the pool very comfortable. We loved the outdoor showers, off three of the bedrooms. The wrap around porch was awesome and offered shade while still …

We loved the outdoor showers, off three of the bedrooms. The wrap around porch was awesome and offered shade while still hanging out with people swimming or by the pool. My husband often did an hour of work on the porch (good wifi) while I swam with the kids. We also didn't have any issues with no-see-ems during dusk. The pools landscaping is also just done beautifully!! The house stocks a ton of beach towels and plenty of chairs and coolers for the beach. We thought it was an easy spot to navigate the island from. It is about a 10 min drive to Cruz Bay, 20 mins to Mahoe Bay or Coral Bay. The streets to the house are cobblestone, so you don't have to have a jeep. We had a wonderful time here and are planning to return as soon as we can!!

  • Great stay at Villa South Palm

    We were a group of 6 with 3 adults, a 21 year old, 16 yr. old and 10 yr. old. This was our first time visiting St. John after vacationing several years in Mexico. We were met off the ferry and taken to our villa. Pictures do not do justice to this beautiful home! We were thoroughly impressed with the property. We spent our days either exploring the beautiful beaches of St. John or having a relaxing day poolside at the villa. The pool was very refreshing and the outside speakers added a festive touch. We cooked several meals at the villa and found all the utensils, etc. we needed to feel right at home. The villa was completely air conditioned with no musty smells in any of the rooms. Having …

Having a washer and dryer onsite was great too. We used the beach chairs, umbrella and towels provided. The bedrooms are all quite large with King beds and the 3 bathrooms with outdoor showers were spectacular. I loved my nightly shower, overlooking the lights of St. Thomas and other distant islands. Very relaxing. Our villa liaison, was very friendly and helpful. We only had to call him once during the week when the water ran out and he came right over and changed to a different tank. We had no problems with the villa whatsoever and miss it! I would love to return! Highly recommend Villa South Palm!!!

    We stayed here last year and I promised myself that we would come back. There were numerous times throughout our trip that I said what a nice villa this was. It's a solid house. It's safe. The pool is great. Beautiful views. Management was very service orientated. You can't go wrong with this villa. It's a "for sure" thing.
