Named for it's magnificent views, Triton's Overlook is situated right on the water's edge and offers stunning,unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea, the British Virgin Islands, and St John. Triton's Overlook, a former local estate known as Villa Maitland, has undergone an extensive renovation over the past few years. While much of the house is new, nods to the past still abound-from the massive mahogany doors ,original exposed brick archways, to the old West Indies parquet floor in the Master Bedroom. And with large glass windows and doors spanning across the open-concept home, you can take in the unbelievable views from the couch, or even while working in the kitchen. Our photos barely do it justice!
The fully stocked kitchen includes a dishwasher, gourmet five burner gas stove with dual-oven, microwave, toaster, Keurig, and espresso machine. Plenty of space for all the "cooks" in the group !
The Theater Room, just off of the main living area, offers a large high definition TV with surround sound in a enclosed setting for twelve to enjoy a special show or movie.
All five bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms. Four bedrooms have king size beds and "down island views". Three of them, the Master Bedroom and two others are located off of the main living area. The master bedroom is palatial, offering a full view of the Caribbean from the comfort of a king size Sleep Number bed. It also includes a large walk-in-closet with a bathroom featuring a open floor shower big enough for two (gotta save water). A second bedroom also offers a king size bed, an ocean view and opens up to a private balcony. A third bedroom has two twin beds which can be combined to create a king. This room is convenient to the main living area and makes a perfect Au Pair suite.Two bedrooms on the lower level offer the same ocean view as above, and open up to a private ground level porch for easy access to the pool and grounds. ( Great for those late night swims ).
The downstairs entertainment area includes a wet bar, ice maker, large curved high definition TV and a large table for games, eating or just gathering to talk or meet to plan the day's activities. The sliding glass doors open directly to the pool deck.
The house is fully air conditioned and has a large generator to power the entire house in case of power outages during your stay.
Triton's Overlook is conveniently located about one mile outside of Red Hook on the East End of St. Thomas. Red Hook offers many restaurants and bars, shopping, groceries, a marina, and the ferry to St. John and the British Virgin Islands. Many tours and charters are also booked out of Red Hook. What makes Triton's Overlook so special and unique is that there are so many areas to escape to your "own space", whether inside the house or outside on the expansive, lush grounds. It's more than just a house, it's a experience that very few can match. With over one acre of enclosed grounds, fruit and palm trees, and other tropical flowering plants there is always something new to see every day. Enjoy the breeze under the palm trees and sea grapes on your own private beach area, step directly and swim in you own lagoon, snorkel on the coral reef right in front of the house, or lay out at the pool. Once you've arrived at Triton's Overlook, the rest is up to you !
