If absolute seclusion is on your wish list, this 25-unit condominium resort might be just the ticket: Each villa opens onto its own private swimming pool. Sure the pools are smallish, but each has a tile deck with loungers that’s walled off and pillowed in tropical greenery. Need more privacy? There’s no need to dine out: Here you can cook your own meals in a well-equipped kitchen, or dine on affordable Mexican fare in the resort’s open-air restaurant, Torcido Taco. Villas are generally comfortable and spacious (the International Pool Villas have 1,400 sq. ft. of space; Caribbean Pool Villas 1,200 sq. ft.), though they each have an individual look as they’re all privately owned. The resort is just 1 mile from the bars and restaurants of Red Hook and 7 miles east of Charlotte Amalie. One of the island’s best beaches and watersports concessions, Sapphire Bay, is a (steep uphill) walk away—but you may never feel like venturing out of your bubble of quiet seclusion.
