The Beach Estate
Designed by famous local architect Glen Speer and now transformed by well known local artist Donald Schnell, known for his beautiful handmade pottery that compliment island living. Come and see the the artist’s touch added to this tropical garden paradise. A twelve person fine Italian marble stone table and Italian stone tile & statuettes coupled with local island stonework create a unique European & Caribbean atmosphere. The Great Cruz Bay location (see our maps page) offers convenience to shopping, groceries, restaurants and National Park beaches, yet the villa offers unique privacy with the surrounding tropical trees and fauna.
The Beach Estate’s pool overlooks Great Cruz Bay and the blue Caribbean Sea of Pillsbury Sound. Deep & luxurious, the pool area is augmented by sconces from the Donald Schnell Studio and edged with Italian marble stone and is just steps away from the property’s sandy beach.
Breezy tradewinds waft through this very private, traditional, Caribbean island villa with a beach.

Island stone planters nurture blooming hibiscus, bougainvillea & other tropical flowers. Snorkeling along the point reveals a variety of fish and an occasional lobster or sea turtle while local White Herons frequent the shoreline.
The “Four Seasons” Italian statues watch over the island stone hot tub and pool area. Italian planters with native island palms and colorful bougainvillea surround you in this peaceful & private island retreat.
The island’s spectacular sunsets, views of the blue Caribbean Sea and the night time lights of St. Thomas are all visible from the spacious decks perched on the hill overlooking the tropical gardens and the beach.
