Hart Bay

Secluded Getaway with Breathtaking Views

Thalassa is an intimate, rustic vacation villa on the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. From its hilltop vantage point on the south shore, Thalassa offers panoramic views and a constant, refreshing Caribbean breeze even on the warmest days.

Every room in the villa and each of Thalassa's four decks provide unobstructed views.  Unforgettable sunrises to the east beyond Ram's Head point and sunsets to the west toward the island of St. Thomas capture the natural beauty of the Virgin Islands.

Thalassa's comfortable simplicity, sustainable design and minimal carbon footprint include a large main living and dining room, full kitchen, two bedrooms, bathrooms and discrete outdoor showers. The house accommodates up to four adults and/or children.

The villa's tastefully manicured garden provides a virtual snapshot of the island's indigenous biodiversity, with perennial bougainvilleas and a host of other native plants.

Experience vacation in your own style.  Located just 15 minutes from the island's main town of Cruz Bay, Thalassa offers easy access to a range of restaurants, shops and night life, and frequent ferry connections to St. Thomas and the airport.  Or if you prefer peace and quiet, explore and relax to your heart's desire in more than 7,000 acres of national park lands, numerous public beaches or Thalassa's own picturesque serenity.
