Villa Viento Reviews
“Top notch villa on St Thomas!”
We have now rented multiple villas on St Thomas for many years. Each time we try to find one that is better than the previous and this year we were lucky enough to find Villa Viento. This property, which is located in a gated community in the Peterborg area of St. Thomas has fantastic views of the north side of the island which lends itself to great breezes in the summer. The rooms were all well appointed. The main living area was as good as any we have seen. We were also happy that the owners were not living either near or on property which is sometimes common with several villas on St Thomas.
Sea Glass Vacations was also very helpful in the entire process from pre-booking to arranging stocking the house with provisions to restaurant bookings and recommendations. Amy was a pleasure to work with during the process.
“It doesn’t get much better than this!” 5 stars
Our family of 8 enjoyed a vacation in St. Thomas and Villa Viento is just gorgeous. It is as lovely as the pictures depict and has all of the amenities one could want. Amazing sunrises greet you each morning regardless of the suite you are in and the views are stunning. All of the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and have lovely ensuite baths.
The villa is fully air-condiitioned although it’s always best to turn off the air in the bedrooms when leaving them for the day. The rooms cool down very quickly upon turning the unit on. There is always a very nice breeze as well; both day and night. The main house contains a large great room with ample seating, a gourmet kitchen , dining area and a half bath. The 80” TV allowed our 24 year old to “game in style” with his gaming console.
When facing the villa, a short walk across the breezeway leads to the master suite which is the only suite on the same level as the main home. A short flight of steps down leads to a second suite which is also quite large. Two additional short flights of stairs lead to the third suite which has the same amazing view, along with a private patio and another quiet, shaded sitting area. It is the smallest of the three rooms but that is the room we stayed in and we loved it!
To the left of the main house is a two story structure with a game room on the first floor and a lovely suite with two twin beds on the second level. Directly in front of this is an additional building which houses the laundry room on the main level and a honeymoon suite on the second level. This suite is complete with a mini-fridge and private deck with chairs for lounging or sitting. Villa Viento is a large property and while all suites are very close to the main house, there is ample privacy for all. The pictures on the website provide an idea of the “footprint” of the property.
Don’t worry about coolers, beach chairs, beach towels, or pool floats. They are provided as well as some basic snorkeling equipment. Nice to have on hand for day trips to the beach or other islands. The pool and verandah are perfect for time spent at home. Sun for those who want it and plenty of comfy seating for those who prefer the shade.
Located in Peterborg, our advice is to rent a car – nothing is too far away and it’s a short drive to anywhere on the island. A map, and remembering to stay to the left. will keep you on track and safe.
Our concierge, Amy Dukes, was wonderful and much appreciated. She was attentive from our initial inquiry to greeting us and acquainting us with the property upon our arrival. She was also available to answer questions that we had during the week and responded very quickly. Amy suggested several of her favorite spots to eat, where to shop for groceries, who to use for a charter day trip, etc., and in general, made planning our trip and activities a breeze.
We would definitely recommend Villa Viento to anyone considering renting a villa on the island – you won’t be disappointed. We had an amazing time and knowing that each evening we’d be returning to a bit of paradise was a perfect way to end each day.
5 star service!! 5 star accommodations!!! My now husband and I live on St. Thomas but were looking for a villa for us to share with our family while they came down or our wedding. Villa Viento was amazing!! It was the best staycation we could have asked for!!! From the moment we contacted Amy we knew that this place was going to be the one! She was so sweet and helpful and had our families best interest in mind. The villa itself was just beautiful and there is nothing to descride the view! Once we checked into the villa, no one wanted to leave! It had everything we could have needed! We made great use out of the beautiful kitchen and the bbq grill out back and not to mention the outside bar! My husband and I were married at the villa and held our intimate, family reception next to the pool. It was truely magical! We hope to make it a family tradition to go back to Villa Viento for years to come! Thank you so much Amy for being awesome!
First class five star experience!
We went with the whole family (nine people) for a full week and this was a first class five star experience from beginning to end. The house itself is ridiculous and the photos from the web site do not do it justice. The great room and kitchen area of the main room are huge and luxurious, the cooking area is a chef’s dream. The outdoor area is a paradise, pool and furniture are unbelievable and I can’t even begin to talk about the view. Each morning you wake up to a sunrise view that was truly stunning. We started missing Villa Viento the minute we left.
Breathtaking views and a perfect property layout!!
Villa Viento is without a doubt one of the most spectacular properties I’ve ever stayed at; the views are breathtaking and the property layout is absolutely perfect. Each room affords the perfect amount of privacy and a stunning view. The property was quite clean and clearly very well maintained; adding to the experience was the management staff. Their constant care and attention to each and every one of our needs made for a unrivaled vacation. Quite looking forward to returning next year and renting this villa again
From the amazing pool/patio view to the special decorative touches in each bedroom, the villa was even better than the website photos. The layout was perfect to allow our large group to have privacy and an intimate feeling while still being able to congregate easily. The location was easy to find with stunning views from each room and excellent hospitality from our host. Can’t wait to visit again!
Four words…. A Slice of Heaven!
We stayed for an extended weekend and did not want to leave. By far the best views of the US & British Virgin Islands I have ever seen. Sitting in the infinity pool with the warm Caribbean sun shining down while overlooking the ocean makes you feel like you are truly in paradise. The house’s accommodations are all five star and with 5 bedrooms there is enough space for everyone. I cant wait to go back to Villa Viento again next year.
Oh My! After traveling all over the world for business, I can say that Villa Viento is one of the most spectacular properties I have ever seen. The layout of the property allows privacy for intimate settings as well as several large common areas for gathering. The upscale island décor is over the top elegant, yet functional and comfortable. The entire property was spotless inside and out and is extremely well maintained. And then you have the views which are breathtaking, always seem to change and never get boring. The property is perched on St Thomas with expansive views of St John and the entire British Virgin Islands. Words simply do not do this property justice. This was our first stay at Villa Viento, but certainly will not be our last!
Paradise with a Gentle Breeze!
Out of all the places I have stayed in the world, Villa Viento is by far the best. Villa Viento is a piece of paradise in St. Thomas. Luxury at its finest. All of the gems of the island are close by. Be it a beach, breakfast nook, fine dining, or shopping. All are a short trip away. We stayed there for 5 nights, and cannot wait to rent the property again. We had beautiful bedrooms and living areas, but the views were amazing. There was a real feeling of calm and relaxation. Having separate buildings for the others that were staying with us was great for the ultimate in privacy. Out of all the places I have stayed there has never been one that we regretted not renting the property for longer. That is no longer the case. I have found my favorite vacationing spot.
Terrific property, Terrific location!!
After an easy direct flight, property was one of the most beautiful privately owned places where I have stayed. Spacious, stunning views, clean and ready to relax and enjoy at arrival. 30 minute drive from the airport. Excellent restaurants within 15 minutes. You won’t want to leave!
