About the property

Caribbean Breezes & Lush Gardens Soothe Your Soul.....

Romantic, serene and peaceful, with the most beautiful views on the island, Villa Indochine is a dream holiday destination. Nestled among tropical gardens on a hillside overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the many islands of the BVIs, St John and Thatch Cay, it is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

The home is beautifully decorated with antiques and original artwork, and a glamorous Far-Eastern aesthetic that gives the house its name. Centered around a large loggia and a smaller courtyard, both with their own stunning gardens, there is a large living room with six sets of French doors to let in the Caribbean breezes, three en-suite bedrooms (one with a king-sized bed, two with queen-sized beds), grand chef’s kitchen and charming dining-room, two glass-paned walls of which fold back to open it to the gardens of the loggia and courtyard. You may encounter the occasional hummingbird on its way from one to the other!

On a lower level is another en-suite bedroom with a king-sized bed, and an exercise/TV room with a convertible queen-sized sofa if needed. These rooms are decorated in the rich colors of the Caribbean, and are spacious and welcoming.

All the bedrooms have screened French doors leading to outdoor terraces, ceiling fans and ample closet space. The master bathroom has the additional attraction of an outdoor bamboo-screened shower.

Coral stone steps lead down to the pool terrace where you can sit in the shade of the magnificent old-growth turpentine tree, or lounge on the terrace between the sunlit pool and the stunning blue waters of the Caribbean. Follow the garden path up the hillside to the “meditation” pavilion for a view that will take your breath away!

Indochine is perfectly situated to enjoy the many beautiful beaches of St Thomas, or to take the ferry to St John or Tortola. St Thomas’s renowned restaurants are all in easy reach, offering everything from casual beach-side dining to an elegant gourmet experience. Charlotte Amalie is a thriving water-front town with delightful beckoning alleyways (locally know as ‘gades’) that lead to numerous art-galleries, high-end jewelry and clothing stores, bars, cafes and restaurants. The Pistarckle Theater, our local multi-plex cinema and the remarkable Reichhold concert venue offer further entertainment. But, be warned, you may find you never want to leave the comfort and romance of Indochine Villa!


All interior rooms can be selectively closed off and air-conditioned.

The hot tub (no jets) & the pool can be heated, if that is your preference. As electricity in the USVI is very expensive we regrettably have to implement a surcharge, but hopefully you will discover that they are not necessary to your comfort and enjoyment.

Provisioning and chef or baby-sitting services can also be arranged separately. As can day sails/charters or an array of water-sports at local venues.

The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, cookware, dinnerware etc and has an 8-burner, double-oven professional Vulcan stove.

There is a table-tennis table on one of the terraces, and the house is well-stocked with videos and docking stations for your iPhone or MP3 players.

You will be met at the airport by the estate manager, Chloe, who will introduce you to the villa and answer any questions that may arise during your stay. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres and champagne will be ready to welcome you, and it will be our pleasure to provide a continental breakfast on your first morning in paradise!

A long-term tenant lives in a discrete apartment below the house. Your paths will only cross in the driveway, if at all.

About Chloe

I divide my time between my homes in St Thomas, Italy and London, and now I have a grand-daughter, I'm increasingly spending time in Oregon too. I decided to place my properties in St Thomas and Italy (#669478) with VRBO as it seems wrong for them to stand empty for so much of the year. Houses need smiles, love and laughter as much as any of us. I hope you'll consider filling the house with yours for a little while.

Chloe purchased this estate in 2012

Why Chloe chose Tabor & Harmony

The views are amazing. Really! You need to experience it for yourself. Indochine is a very special place.

What makes this estate unique

My 4 year old grand-daughter says 'I love Grandma's house because it has holes'....she means the 'holes' to the sky. As you wander around the house you go from inside to outside, from living-room to loggia, from dining-room to court-yard, and every room spills out onto a sunny (or star-lit) terrace. Living here, I sometimes forget to look up at the 'holes' as I pass through, but when I do, I always stop for a moment or two to savor the beauty of the night-sky or the glorious Caribbean day.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I spent two weeks this March at Indochine Villa and found it to be an absolute delight in every imaginable way.

The location at the gated end of a private drive high above its surroundings provided perfect privacy.

The villa's layout is unique, in that you find yourself not always sure if you’re inside or out.

There are 2 living rooms. One that can be enclosed, or fully open on opposite walls, adjacent to the second, an open roofed three walled courtyard with the fourth "wall" being the base of a lush landscaped hillside. Both of which are furnished with very different approaches to casual living.

The extensive eat-in kitchen which overlooks the pool and a roofed outdoor dining patio, is open to a second court yard beyond which is a very proper and formal dining room also open to the "living room-courtyard".

My bedroom opened to a secluded terrace and lawn, high above the bay looking toward St. John, with an expansive view I never tired of and sunrises that inspired.

The Best Vacation Yet!

  • 5 of 5

Chloe was very instrumental in offering additional services(taxis, excursions, cooks, maps etc.) The house is beautiful! I love the indoor/outdoor combination! The bedroom closest to the pool is my favorite room! I definitely would return to St. Thomas!

Stunning Villa and View

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Indochine for 12 nights. We were blown away by the set up of the Villa. The rooms were all very beautiful. My husband lived over 10years in St.Thomas and was still blown away by the view! The views are great all over St.Thomas but this was unique! We had our Wedding with all our St.Thomas friends and they even couldn't get enough. Staying at the Villa with 10 people was so much fun. We could all hang out in the large open kitchen or by the great pool.. What we really appreciated was the fact that you could still find little private spots on property to have some time for yourself.

Overall: Don't hesitate booking this villa! You will love it!

Perfect space for your family in St Thomas

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed Indochine in June of 2017 and fell in love with the home. From working with Chloe for many months to working with her peeps she recommended it was an easy experience for the 11 of us. Everyone Chole recommended from Moes provisioning to Amalie Car rental made our trip a wonderful experience. we also looked into having a chef come in the first evening and the menus suggested looked amazing. Fortunatly we brought a chef with us (my brother) and he couldn't wait to cook in the kitchen at the house.

The house was perfect for us because although there are several areas large enough for us all to be together the house is large enough for everyone to spread out when needed.

It's hard to describe the views. Although the pictures are amazing you can't really "see" how beautiful this location is until you are there. 180 degree beauty.

The home is a very indoor outdoor living arrangement. Each bedroom has individual air conditioners as well as the living areas but most of the time they are open air. In June we used the ac but many times of the year the breezes should be enough.

The outdoor areas are amazing. Pool area, patios or verandas and especially the meditation area. My youngest discovered a trail going up behind the home the last day and I went on it with him. Brings you back to being 7 again :)

If you are looking at a home in St Thomas I can't imagine another property being more perfect than this one. We loved being closer to the red hook side of the island. Megan's Bay, Lindquist beach, Coki beach are all close by - within 10-15 min. The red hook ferry being close was also a plus as we loved going over to St. John. Chole is so extremely helpful and will give you honest answers quickly to anything you want to know. Can't wait to return...

Family Holiday beyond compare

  • 5 of 5

11 family members arrived on the beautiful VI island over the Christmas Holiday. We are all well prepared thanks to the help of Chloe who handed the arrangements and provided great guidance with everything from car rental information to restaurants, churches for Sunday mass, Chloe was so helpful during our stay. The drive from the airport (I recommend a jeep but a car would also work) was about 45 minutes and as you try to find the street marked by four mail boxes (arrive in daylight) and you drive down the gravel lane up to the secluded gated property on the top of the island you will be amazed at every feature of this house and every view. The kitchen where we spent a lot of time as a family was completely open air with the bay of windows open the breeze was amazing. The view from the massive kitchen looked over the pool and straight down to St. John Island with seven islands acting as a ally way for all the boats and yachts passing by this vacation home atop the island. next to the kitchen was a open court yard and then the dining room. We used every inch of this villa. the walk way from the pool takes you to a meditation/party area looking straight down to St. johns. More than a few hours were spent high a perch sipping on coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. The whole house and outside area was wireless for internet if you care about such a thing. The one problem we had is we never wanted to leave the villa to explore the island! Everyone had a beautiful bedroom with a view all with their own showers and bath. We did force ourselves out to explore and if we were not cooking in this kitchen we hit some great local restaurants, just ask Chloe. We also made it to a few great beaches a full day at Magens Bay, pack a cooler with anything you might want to drink. There is also a great bar and shops at the main area. If you are up for a hike you must see Sandy Bay an amazing beach on the far west side of the island. Grad some milk shakes on the way back and back to paradise the what a villa!!!!! What a vacation!!!!

Great Family Time

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our recent stay at the Villa Indochine. The house itself was amazing and had wonderful views and amenities. Chloe was such a help in getting us to the house and setting us up with a car rental...all at the last minute. She also made herself available throughout the week and stayed in contact without being overbearing. The Villa is far enough away from the downtown area that it's peaceful and quiet, but close enough to get there within minutes. It was clean and extremely well maintained. The pictures do not do it justice. Even the local shop owners that were close by gave us great recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. We spent quite a bit of time at the Villa because it was so beautiful and peaceful. There were 8 of us in total and not once did we feel crowded. The kitchen was our favorite place to gather, listen to music, play games, and cook! You cannot go wrong with the Villa Indochine and the manager Chloe is the cherry on top! If you're there on a Friday night, make sure and check out Tavern on the Waterfront..amazing food and live jazz.

Indochine- the dream holiday destination.

  • 5 of 5

The house was incredible as was our stay. Chloe met us at the airport and ensured that we had a delicious meal awaiting for both dinner and breakfast. The provisioning was exactly as ordered from Fresh Foods V.I. We had two magnificent dinners provided by Ultimate Chefs a private chef service. I am still envisioning the views, days at the pool, and evenings on the terrace. I have shared pictures of the house with family and friends and would highly recommend it as a vacation experience. Thank you again, Chloe and St, Thomas.
