Overview

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 is a short drive to the restaurants and shops at the Westin Beach Resort. The many restaurants, bars, shops and other delights of the village of Cruz Bay are a 10-15 minute drive, entirely on paved roads.

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.

South Palm’s architecture and design is the inspiration of stateside professional homebuilders who spent many years planning this home, which was completed in the summer of 2006. The attractive and functional 3-level design seen here is somewhat similar to the design of its popular Virgin Grand neighbor, Vista Caribe. South Palm has multiple exterior rooflines, but the 2,800 sq/ft interior is all under one roof. The design incorporates many classic architectural features such as tiled roofs, beamed cathedral ceilings, coral stone floors, Doric columns, French doors under arched windows and a 750 sq/ft covered veranda (deck) on the villa’s south and east sides, and an 1,100 sq/ft antique brick pool deck.

You park above the house and descend stairs to the main level and enter into the great room. The kitchen, powder room and dining areas adjoin the great room, and multiple French doors open to the tiled and covered decks. Off the deck, exterior stairs lead down a half level to the pool and an 1,100 sq/ft brick sun deck. There is one bedroom/bath and private balcony on the main level, and a second bedroom/bath and private balcony is on the 3rd (upper) level. The other two master bedrooms are on the lower level and open to a sun terrace that is below the pool level. All four bedrooms are accessed by interior stairs and the entire site is colorfully landscaped with a vibrant array of tropical vegetation.

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.

This is a handsome 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.

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.

The many features of this villa include:

Large outdoor covered decks that overlook the pool and have lovely views, privacy and comfortable deck furniture. If you love to be outside but not in the sun, covered decks are a blessing.
Beautiful, colorful landscaping that constantly reminds you that you’re in the tropics
A 32” satellite TV in the great room and 20” flat screen satellite TVs in every bedroom, plus high speed satellite internet access.
A stereo/CD system with an iPod hookup with speakers in the great room plus outdoor speakers on the deck.
A southwest sunny orientation with central a/c throughout the villa, which makes this home especially enjoyable in the summer months.
A 15’ x 22’ very private pool enclosed on 3 sides by a handsome brick sundeck.
An overall commitment to quality, as demonstrated by the use of copper sinks, Brazilian cherry and granite in every bathroom, the kitchen and even the laundry and powder rooms.
A very clever site and building plan that makes South Palm one of the quietest, most peaceful and private sites within the exclusive Virgin Grand Estates.
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.

Villa South Palm was designed to be a splendid vacation home, and it succeeds. 

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.
