Features &


Villa Fratelli Cresta offers a unique combination of luxury and comfort not often seen in a property of its size. Seven deluxe bedroom suites within three distinct villas provide sleeping accommodations for up to 18 guests. Virgin Islands Architect Kalif Henley brought vision to life in a stunning layout, windows welcome the Caribbean sun, vaulted ceilings for a spacious feel, and access to absorbing views from Secret Harbour and the protected sanctuary, to Red Hook Bay and sister island St. John and on to the British Virgin Islands.

Located on the East End of St. Thomas, USVI, Villa Fratelli Cresta is embraced by meticulous gardens behind electronic gates (guest and service entries). Very close to the Red Hook Complex (American Yacht Harbor), medical facilities (Red Hook Family Medical Group and Chelsea Drug Store), mail (Red Hook Mail Services) and plenty of dining, shopping and nightlife options, Villa Fratelli Cresta is also very convenient to area marinas, the car barges to St. John, and the ferries to St. John and the British Virgin Islands. Yet, within the electronic gates, you'll enjoy sumptuous accommodations and privacy.

The woods used for interior and exterior trim include the durable "greenheart" from Guyana, this wood stands up well to salt air, insects and moisture, and is so strong that standard tools cannot shape it. Solid masonry construction allows for privacy among the 3 villas (2, 2-bedroom units flank a third, which contains 3 bedrooms). Interior Designer Elizabeth Hall of local outlet Island Empire contributed greatly to the property's stylish interiors and exteriors. Caribbean art and objets appear throughout, to help create an eclectic tour for the eyes and spirit.

Guests renting one or two units will have shared access to the common areas including the outdoor patio (great for hosting events), a freshwater pool + hot tub, gazebo with wet bar, outdoor grill, and fitness center with A/C on the lower level. Or, for larger parties (or exclusive use of the entire property), you may choose to book all three. All three villas have complete kitchens with modern appliances, laundry, climate-controlled A/C, ceiling fans, individual great rooms, and Wi-Fi internet access.

Villa Fratelli Cresta #3 is "St. John" (2BR)
Journey to a Polynesian refuge as you settle into this serene 2-bedroom villa at Villa Fratelli Cresta! You will sense the nearness of the sea in its turquoise and cream decor embellishments plus the lushness of a tropical forest dappled with sunlight. The great room features Palm Springs indoor rattan love seat and couch (which doubles as a sofa bed), chairs, hand carved teak accent shelving, Indonesian teak coffee table, and formal teak console. Embrace yourself within the inviting swivel seat with your favorite book - "curl up" in soothing comfort! A powder room (half bath) is very nearby.

Rattan furnishings grace the fully equipped kitchen and the bar front sports an attractive, embedded pattern design; rattan bar stools allow for social sessions and easy dining. It's a pleasure to create in such a "Zen" environment as this - and you may opt to sup on your own veranda surrounded beneath Caribbean skies.

Each of the "villas" opens out onto the relaxed curves that form the exterior environment: the 15,750 gallon freshwater pool and hot tub, grill, gazebo and outdoor wet bar and food preparation area. Chic Kokomo Garden Classic furniture in wicker accompanies the absorbing view of the ocean and sky. The islands are best experienced out of doors, and you'll find plenty of opportunity to take in the pleasures of tropical life at its finest, at the supremely 5(plus!)-star Villa Fratelli Cresta!
