Ventana - Luxurious Mansion on 2 Acres - Prestigious Neighborhood
Description from the manager
This unique luxury mansion in a prestigious neighborhood sits on over 2 acres on a scenic hilltop, overlooking spectacular views of Charlotte Amalie's harbor and of tropical sunsets.
An avenue of palms leads from the entrance through lush tropical gardens to the brick courtyard, carport, and into the spacious and very elegant Great Room. This large living area, furnished with plush, comfortable seating and accented with warm mahogany pieces, is the heart of Ventana. Just off the Great Room is the covered dining gallery and verandah set with a sofa, chairs and a hammock. The adjoining, just-remodeled kitchen features custom cabinetry, a Viking gas range and Sub Zero fridge, and also has a private area for wait staff, which doubles as an office area. A few steps from the Great Room take you to Ventana's upper level and to two bedroom/bath suites, both with air-conditioning, cable TV and marble baths.
A few steps down from the Great Room is the large king air-conditioned master suite complete with cable TV, a sofa bed, a generous marble bath with mirrored French doors, and its own private covered patio just outside. A few more steps from the master bath access the adjoining exercise room.
Walkways threaded through the gardens and lawn lead to the air-conditioned twin-bedroom suite, situated in a charming small poolside cabana separate from the main house - and to the brick patios and dramatic horizon pool, from which you can watch the cruise ships come and go by day, and enjoy the magic of twinkling lights of our harbor and town at night.
Ventana celebrates Caribbean style with its captivating views, superb gardens, restful colors and original artwork; villa aficionados will appreciate the drama of this vacation estate's perfect privacy in a gracious, old world setting - five stars!

The family had the best time ever. It was our 1st family vacation as adults and everyone had a great time. The house was just beautiful and the views were awe inspiring. It was 5 min from town, but you felt miles away from the acitivity. We spent hours watching the cruise ships coming in the morning during coffee and then leaving in the evening with dinner and cocktails. We could have stayed for a few weeks. Very relaxing. We could not have asked for a better home to rent. We will come back again with friends soon. It was better then the pictures on line. Very centrallly located to get easily to other points on the island, since it was out of the main harbor activity.

We rented Villa Ventana for our May 28th wedding reception (we were married on Magens Bay). The villa was PERFECT for the wedding reception.Our wedding party that stayed at the villa with us had an awesome time as well. There are several ways to set things up for a reception. We had rain, so the Buffett, Bar and dinner tables (three 60 inch rounds) were all setup on the Veranda, and it worked perfectly. Had we not had rain we would have put the 60 inch rounds on the patio off the veranda. The views both during the day and at night are AMAZING. Marilu was extremely helpful. Many of my husbands family still lives on the island, and his uncle was able to get a tour of the villa a few weeks ahead of time, so he could help us with planning things.
