Casa Bougainvillea is the ideal spot for guests who love water sports and beach combing. Situated right on the water's edge, this property lets you enjoy the waves, snorkeling, and swimming just a few steps from your back door. Chaises have been set up on the beach to make the sunning experience more comfortable, and with the breezes coming in off the water, these chairs are just the right place to have a cocktail on a hot afternoon. The covered patio and tropical gardens offer guests a number of private spots for quiet contemplation or reading, and if you're in the mood to socialize, the kitchen and Great Room will accommodate a huge number of friends and family.
Behind an electronic gate and set right on the edge of the sea, this fully air-conditioned five-bedroom villa offers lots of space in a garden setting. Edged by its own rock and coral beach on Great Bay and just down the shoreline from The Ritz-Carlton, this landscaped private estate offers three air-conditioned bedrooms and two baths in its light and airy upper level, placed on either side of the spacious Great Room with its cathedral ceilings.
The air-conditioned Great Room features colorful artwork, an open-plan kitchen, relaxed seating with dining and entertainment areas, and opens onto a covered shady veranda for alfresco dining, yacht-watching or reading. Two more air-conditioned one-bedroom/bath apartment suites are set poolside below on the garden level.
Caribbean gardens, vivid with island flowers, are enhanced by sculpture, the sunny pool, an open-air gazebo, and a fountain and lily pond which complement this villa's tropical setting. A short walkway leads to the coral and stone shoreline and ocean's edge. Snorkeling on live reefs awaits you just outside your door (bring your reef shoes), or you can walk down the shoreline to The Ritz-Carlton's white sand beach.
This fully-screened villa is the perfect locale for a memorable vacation in the sun for family and friends. Casa Bougainvillea may also be rented along with Sea Star, just next door, to accommodate up to 24 persons (see information on this web site).
A DSL line with Wi-Fi is available in the villa, so you may bring your laptop and use it at Casa Bougainvillea.
The owners of the villa added a 12- x 20-foot "sand box" near the ocean's edge so you can relax and sunbathe on a sandy beach.

Casa Bougainvillea Villa, St. Thomas, USVI reviewVisited: December 2016
There were 11 of us, youngest 12. Three generations. The villa filled our needs with plenty of space. The pool was well used. Caroline was friendly and very helpful. Because of wind and coral and biting ants we did not use the beach much. Overall the condition and decor was a bit dated, especially for the price. Heard some complaints about condition of kitchen equipment. My husband is in fragile health and wanted to do this trip. We have rented for far less money and comparing the value I think it was overpriced. The wooden decks and sliders have seen better days. Appreciated that bedding and towels were fresh and in good supply.
My experience was fine. I had my daughter do much of the communication.
