L' Esperance Vacation Rental

You're the king of the hill, with all of Charlotte Amalie, cruise ships, seaplanes, and St. Thomas's harbor spread at your feet from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the Great Room of this stunning villa.

Originally the home of a 50s movie actress, this magnificent property high atop exclusive Flag Hill has been beautifully renovated. The kitchen is state of the art, and the expansive family room opens to a spacious stonework patio (home of the famous flag of Flag Hill) with breathtaking Caribbean views. Three private and imaginatively-decorated bedroom/bath suites are on the main level, including a king master suite with its own secluded sitting room. The main floor also contains a media room/home theater with a large-screen TV and an extensive movie collection. The media room, with its sofabed and full bath adjoining, may be used as an extra bedroom. Two additional bedroom/bath suites on L'Esperance's lower level overlook the pool area. Each bedroom enjoys direct access to an exterior deck or patio and its own bath.

Although L'Esperance is ideally situated to capture refreshing tradewinds, the entire villa is air-conditioned with separately-controlled units for each room. On the pool deck you'll find not only incredible views, but also a fully-equipped and shaded pool house with refrigerator and full bath. An extensive nature trail beckons you to explore the hundreds of diverse tropical plantings on this wonderful estate. A separate building houses your own work-out room with commercial-quality equipment. At dusk, when the sun sinks into the sea and the lights come up in Charlotte Amalie, you're in a front-row seat to enjoy the romantic vision of her twinkling lights from your dining table - it's a view you'll never forget, and which you'll never want to leave. A small cottage on the far side of the property is occupied by L'Esperance's two caretakers and their well-mannered dog, but your privacy at this electronically gated, exclusive 5-acre retreat is always assured. Five stars!

L' Esperance Reviews

We had a fabulous stay at L'Esperance last …
Posted by in March 2015

We had a fabulous stay at L'Esperance last week. We could not have selected a better villa. It was ideal for our family. Corrina met us at the airport promptly and got us to the villa. She also went "above and beyond" by talking my brother, Tom, through the directions when his GPS sent him off course. The massage therapists you arranged were FANTASTIC! All four of us claimed that it was our best massages ever (and we've had many).

I also wanted to share with you our great experience with Ultimate Chef. They provided food provisioning for us at a reasonable rate and did a private Caribbean BBQ dinner for us at the Villa. Working with them was a pleasure from the very start. Shanika was very prompt and professional in corresponding while planning. Both Shanika and Chef Lee Ann arrived promptly, set a wonderful table, served an outstanding dinner and left the kitchen spotless! They were friendly, polite and true professionals. While their price per person was not inexpensive, it was not excessive either. Being in the business, it is my opinion that the rate was right on target for the services we received. I would highly recommend them...you might want to consider adding them to your recommendation list :)

The only thing that made our stay slightly less than perfect was the lack of pressure in the master bath shower (I believe Robert shared this with Janet). And if I had to mention one suggestion for the villa, it would have been off the hook PERFECT if there was an outside hot tub on the covered landing half way down to the pool. Other than those two minor things, the villa was wonderful, very well equipped, clean and super comfortable. We will absolutely consider renting it again! Many, many thanks for all your assistance in making our visit to St. Thomas a memorable experience.
