Villa Mirino is an incomparable oceanfront residence in Estate Nazareth on the southeast corner of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. Thanks to its exclusive site on the cliff of a peninsula with no houses on either side, the property length deck provides a 180° unobstructed view of the Caribbean Sea and waves hitting the 182 feet of shoreline below. Comfortably supporting up to 10 guests, the Villa boasts high ceilings and spacious rooms. Guests enjoy both property-wide air conditioning and a solar heated infinity pool, which are rarely found in the Virgin Islands. The two-level floor plan includes 4 bedrooms with en suite bathrooms (3 Kings and 1 Queen), a fifth bedroom with bunk-beds, and 4.5 baths. Thoughtfully laid out for both families and adults, two king beds can be converted to twins. The main floor features one substantial master suite with walk-in closet, vanity and a bathroom featuring a bidet and additional adjacent half bath, a second king suite (convertible to twins) with bathroom, and the bunkbed room with full-size mattresses. 2 more spacious suites on the garden level include the other convertible king and a queen, both with ensuite bathrooms, and sliding glass doors to a patio with seating and views of the Caribbean. Each suite is complete with plush beds, full thread count sheets, and thick thirsty towels.The deck and pool area include 6 lounge chairs and al fresco dining for 6 with a propane BBQ grill and additional seating outside the master bedroom.
The Villa was fully renovated in 2013. It now features higher end amenities (such as Cuisinart stainless cookware), updated furnishings and the latest in home technologies, including property-wide Wi-Fi, a HD Sony 48" television with premium cable subscriptions, Sony PS3, Microsoft XBox 360, BluRay, Sonos Wi-Fi web stereo system throughout the main level and deck, and a security system. Situated at the end of a private lane, Villa Mirino's serene, intimate setting is apparent the minute you drive through the gate. Lush landscaping greets you, from the Flamboyant tree gracing the parking apron, to the enumerable flowering bushes and palm trees. A lime tree deposits fruit for your cocktails on the front doorstep. Flowering pipe cacti support the native bird population, and it is not uncommon to have a hummingbird greet you in a private moment in the garden. The villa is maintained by professional pool and housekeeping staff and guests are assisted by an experienced villa manager.
This villa is truly unique: set on the sea among private residences in renown Estate Nazareth on the south end of the island, it is a mere 5 minutes to the conveniences, fun and dining of Red Hook and the ferries to St. John and the British Virgin Islands. Nestled between Secret Harbor and the St. Thomas Yacht Club, one can enjoy beaches and snorkeling within a 10 minute to 15 minute walk, or Magen's Bay, consistently rated as one of the world's top 10 beaches, within a 20 minute drive. Scuba diving and snorkeling trips depart from marinas 5 minutes away; some charters will pick you up at the Villa.
With the quality, privacy and nature-setting comparable to an exclusive St. John residence, you can experience the fun and convenience of St. Thomas!TripAdvisor property ID 3137148...Read more

I would not stay anywhere else on the island. The house itself is in immaculate condition with huge sliding glass doors in every room allowing for amazing views of the Caribbean from every room. I loved waking up to the breathtaking sunrise every morning and the house's beautiful décor encourages complete relaxation. Whether watching TV, playing Xbox/Playstation or listening to music via the surround sound system, it felt like our every whim was met. The kitchen is stocked with gourmet appliances and cookware which made my ability to create fantastic meals for us easy and fun. When we tired of laying by the pool, the beach was less than a mile away and the Red Hook night life was right down the street. This villa is truly one of the premier locations on the island. I cannot wait for the next trip back

Our one week stay at Villa Mirino in St. Thomas was absolutely magical. It was a pleasant drive from the airport and the location is excellent. The view of the ocean and surrounding hills was breathtaking and a delight to wake up to each day. The home itself is very well appointed. Every detail is first class, from the modern well-equipped kitchen to the luxurious bedrooms and living areas. We especially enjoyed the Sonos sound system that is wired inside and out. With a simple download on our iphone it was up and running and we could control every zone right from our phone. This is one of those rare properties where you can escape to paradise while surrounding yourself in luxury. Five Stars!
