About the property

EXQUISITE BEAUTY!!!!!! NO IrMaria Residential damage; re-painted and landscaped in December 2017. Fully POWERed and ready for rentals!!! Our ocean waters are as beautiful blue as always and most stores and restaurants are already resumed, as well as beaches and ferries among our islands, even favorite beaches like ABI Beach, Magens Bay, Linqvist and closeby islands of St John (Trunk Bay, etc), Water Island/Honeymoon Beach (Dinghys, Heidis Honeymoon Grill), and Jost Van Dyke BVI (Soggy Dollar, Foxys). We are blessed and it is amazing how the islands are rejuvenating . . . just need visitors like YOU to get to better than ever. We have DISCOUNTED 2018 rates to ENTICE you to St. Thomas for your vacation, especially if coming to St. Thomas to help our beautiful islands, or if monthly lodging is needed!!! And remember, No Passport needed for US Citizens to US Virgin Islands.

Side by side oceanview suites promote privacy and relaxation. Perfect for two couples. A most exquisite self-catering property configured as two side-by-side master bedroom/bathroom suites with beautiful outside landscaping/flora, water features, sun/shade seating and extremely personalized amenities inside and out. Close to town, Marriott, beaches, dining and shopping - where you want to be but also away from it all. Perfect for attending or hosting a wedding at the Marriott or nearby or honeymoon - suites rent together and/or separately.

We have basic internet and HDMI connectivity for your device to the TV, but for Winter/Spring 2018, we do need to note that Cable TV, High-speed and Phone service will be a while for restoration (island wide outage except for hot spots). If you have AT&T service, it works well here and with unlimited plans you can tether to do Netflix or Amazon fire stick or dot com subscriptions if you bring those with you. We also have DVD player and some DVDs, but bring your favorite DVDs or have downloaded programs ready to watch on your devices. We can make this work - we didn't use to all have internet ;) but we are working daily for solutions. Highly reduced rates already reflect the limitation of these items.

Morningstar Villa is our personally owned, exquisite ocean view nonsmoking configurable 2BR/2BA vacation residence overlooking prestigious Morningstar Beach in beautiful St. Thomas. Our island of St. Thomas enjoys warm temperatures and island breezes year-round, and the villa showcases magnificent oceanfront views of the island's beauty from every room and angle.

Newly remodeled this year, with such modern amenities as Wi-Fi, gas grill with stove top, fountains, and Washer/Dryer, our Villa is the ideal accommodation for couples or families vacationing together (a perfect option for family vacation or wedding parties for the Marriott). Villa has spacious, 1100 sq ft, well-designed one-level layout with two separate master bedroom/bathroom suites beside each other that promote privacy and comfort for accommodating two couples perfectly or a family with children (each with separate entrance).

1st suite has comfortable Queen bed, futon sofa, recliner, full Kitchen, A/C, ceiling fans, large screen TV, DVD/VCR, and oceanviews galore, even from bathroom!

2nd bedroom suite has comfy new pillow-top King bed, Sofa (with pullout option), TV, DVD/VCR, bathroom, gorgeous ocean views every angle + microwave, coffeemaker, toaster oven, sink, and mini-fridge efficiencies ensuite.

Both suites can use the propane full size gas grill with side burner for cooking.

Located side-by-side, each suite has its own private en-suite bathroom and TV to promote Privacy. Beautiful ocean views from all bedrooms and bathrooms. All Linens, including sheets, bath and beach towels, are provided in the suites.

For those of you who want to stay in and enjoy the spectacular views and privacy of your own villa, there is a fully equipped kitchen and cookware. There are also furnishings on the ocean view lanai for exterior dining and relaxation, as well as a courtyard grilling area.

BEAUTIFUL & CONVENIENT OCEANFRONT LOCATION - near Marriott, Beaches, Charlotte Amalie, and Shopping.

Morningstar Villa is located where you want to be (the most protected from the storms and least damage noticed)! Central island location on the south sunny shore of St. Thomas, between Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook. Charlotte Amalie/Havensight, known as the duty-free shopping capitol of the Caribbean, is a short 5 minutes drive west (STT airport within 10 minutes), and Red Hook is only 15 minutes drive east, where guests can take a person or car ferry over to beautiful St. John within 1/2 hour ride or to the BVIs.

Escape the crowds here! Private but close to everything. This Quiet and Quaint location on its own cul-de-sac above the Marriott is a short 2 minutes drive to prestigious Morningstar Beach (currently close until Marriott re-opens) but there's closeby ABI Beach, Magens, and many more; and all St. Thomas attractions are within 15 minutes drive. Nearby are Restaurants, Beaches, Grocery Stores, K-Mart, Duty-Free Shopping, Red Hook for car and person ferries to St. John and BVIs, Magen's Bay and STT Airport.

Taxi Service and Rental Cars are available on island. We recommend advance reservations online with Avis, Thrifty or Budget if renting a car for STT; which is especially recommended for more than 2 persons. Taxis charge per person per destination and can become expensive and not as optimal if not staying at a hotel. Noting that this property is not considered taxi route or walking distance. Advance reservations with Avis, Thrifty or Budget can be much more economical. We recommend that having your own transportation can optimize your vacation experience.

Panoramic ocean views and exquisite amenities throughout the Villa! For guests who reserve with us, we provide island activity & dining information in email and in the villa to help plan a wonderful vacation to the US Virgin Islands. With 75+ degree temperatures all year round, beautiful beaches, and so much to do, St. Thomas is the ultimate vacation destination.

Let us help you make your dream vacation a reality! As some reservations book a year in advance with return guests each year, you will not want to delay planning your special vacation to St. Thomas. We look forward to hearing from you to assist with your vacation accommodations. If you have always wanted your own villa in the Caribbean, Morningstar Villa can be your place in the sun.

We invite you to visit our villa WEBSITE via link below for photos, video and detailed information for our exquisite villa.

This vacation rental property can rent as separate Studio and efficiency suites (VRBO# 344585). In addition to Morningstar Villa, we also have oceanfront 2-3BR condos closeby in St. Thomas (Homeaway #298319, 307427 and vrbo 35690, 622508, 754477, etc). Whether it's a family and friends getaway, wedding or honeymoon destination, we have exquisite St. Thomas properties to accommodate and provide all the information you'll need for a wonderful Caribbean vacation.

We provide portable chairs and cooler and all beaches here are public.

All of this in paradise!!! Plus personalized boating tours and real estate services - just let us know you are interested.

Guestbook comments from the owner

June 6-12 2010 -

Your house is beautiful! The balcony was our favorite spot! The villa has everything you need to make you feel right at home and it’s very comfortable!

Close to grocery stores and restaurants. We ate at Iggie’s at Bolongo beach for dinner. Really enjoyed eating on the shore. Nice and breezy and good food! Also had a really delicious dinner at Caribbean Saloon in Red Hook – Excellent service! The Brownings are right-on with their recommendations. We ventured off the recommendation list to Fungi’s Restaurant at Point Pleasant – cannot suggest it – the wait staff was very rude and service took an hour.

Water is calm and beautiful at Magens Bay. Definitely our favorite of all the places we went. We also went to Sapphire beach. It was somewhat crowded, but still able to enjoy snorkeling and feeding the ducks on the beach – they eat right from your hand. We went to Coral World at Coki Beach – had a great time! We did the SNUBA experience: 30 minutes of underwater swimming with fish just off the shore over the coral reef. Be sure to take an underwater camera – lots of colorful fish!

We took the car ferry to St. John for the day. Enjoyed the views from the top level. Drove around and stopped at the different beaches to enjoy all the views. Trunk Bay, Caneel Bay, Cinnamon Bay.

We hate having to pack and leave, and really hope to be back again,

Perfect vacation at the perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location, amenities and owners that made our 24th anniversary very special! This villa was exactly as described, well outfitted with everything you'll need to make your vacation relaxing and stress free. My wife and I spent six wonderful nights in this property and having the owners nearby made our stay all the better. Don't worry about having them nearby because they don't bother you unless you want to interact which is extremely nice for privacy. They opened up their home to us and they did an amazing job preparing informational binders about where to dine, which beaches to visit and where to shop.

I highly recommend staying here and enjoying all the comforts of home for less dollars than the resorts charge. You'll have a full sized kitchen, outdoor grill, plenty on linen and air conditioning for chilling out after a lazy day at the beach. You'll also be extremely close to everything but secluded from the hustle/bustle of the tourist areas.

This home is beautiful!!!

Perfect, relaxing, great views!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our group of four. We had plenty of space, and all of the necessities. We choose this property because of the location and the ability to fix our own meals, which helped save us a lot of money! Scott and Leah recommended that we rent a car for our stay and we are so glad that we did. We were able to see and explore the island with ease because of that! They also provided us with an abundance of information, which helped us in planning our days, providing us with the best beach spots and how to get there, as well as their favorite places to eat. We actually ran into Scott a few times and he was friendly and easy to talk to. We appreciated how they weren't in our business, but we're there for us if we needed anything. This was my first true vacation and I could not have asked for a better one!

Relaxing wonderful stay in the efficiency

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the room we stayed in. It was modern and clean and perfect for a quiet vacation. There are about 20 steps to get down to the room but they are well lighted and steady. There was a refrigerator, toaster, microwave, and coffee maker which I used for tea. The patio was where we spent most of our time because the view is so beautiful. We brought bug spray to use on the patio and only used it once. The location is great. It takes 8 to 10 minutes to stroll to the Marriott and about 12 minutes to return because you are going up hill. We stayed 8 days and I walked to the Marriott at least once a day. You can use the gym there for $50.00 week. We had a car which is really nice. The owners are wonderful kind people. They want you to have everything you need. We felt very safe there. We hope to return!

Great Place..Owner gives most valuable info & very responsive... loved this place (4 of us Dec 2010)

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo, very well equipped, no need for snorkle stuff, just take it for 4 folks. Rent a car if you can, I got it thru priceline... but right next door you can arrange trips.Owners are very responsive and provide an abbundance of info w/o even asking for it. You will love it here... good the retired as well and young... see trip advisor, I ended up renting here because of super great feedback for Leah Browning... We are retired and enjoyed our stay with son & daughter. Don't miss out on going to Virgin Gorda (see huge boulders, but expensive tour, but soooo worth it) and to St Johns taking the ferry.

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. Home is a very convenient drive to Charlotte Amelia, shopping, restaurants and beaches. Owner was highly resonsive and helpful. Home is perched high above morningstar beach with awesome ocean views, including cruise ship arrivals and departures which were fun to watch. Home has a seperate studio apartment below - tenant was very quiet. Second bedroom is down interior spiral stairs. There is a bathroom off of both bedrooms. Home is decorated beatuifully. Great room and both bedrooms have room a/c - master bath does not - but that was fine. Being from Florida, a/c is important to us!! Master bed was very comfortable. Large porch to enjoy the view was awesome. The washer and dryer are full size and worked well. Home had lots of beach towels which was a nice perk. Enjoyed all the great island info in the unit and especially the recomendation for "Utter Delight" milkshakes - went twice!

Hi there Leah and Scott! ...

  • 5 of 5

Hi there Leah and Scott!

We are home and we had the best time on our vacation, thanks to your fantastic and beautiful home. We actually were a bunch of home bodies besides going to the beach. :) We cooked a a lot and had wonderful evenings watching the sun set from the balcony. One really fun thing we did was chartering a boat from "do it in style " charters. We had a blast snorkeling around St. John, then checking out Sandy Cay Beach , and having a drink at Soggy Dollar Bar. Our captain was so great. We also had a great meal at Old Stone Farm House. YUM.

I just wanted to send a huge Thank You for everything! Your home is so beautiful and was the perfect little getaway for us. We are honored to have been your first guests.

Sending all my best,
