The Dancing Orchid Bed and Breakfast Villa is secluded and peaceful, located on the Northside of St. Thomas, overlooking Magens Bay and five minutes from Hull Bay. You can watch the sunrise over Magens Bay, almost touch the pelicans as they glide past on the breeze of the tradewinds, and fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean on the shoreline below. There is also a beautiful nature trail on the grounds that winds down to the shoreline.
There are three guest rooms, so your experience is more personalized. All of the rooms are quite large and contain mahogany or teak furnishings, including a four poster canopy bed, king or queen sized. The Ocean Room and the Jungle Room are located on the lower level and adjoin the lower level balcony that overlooks Magens Bay. The Garden Room is located on the main level.
Start your day on the expansive upper balcony overlooking Magens Bay and enjoy a three course, sumptuous, healthy breakfast. Ingredients are often freshly picked from the garden on the grounds.
There are several outdoor areas that are ideal for sunbathing and star gazing, as well as relaxing with a good book in the solitude and listening to the birds and the sounds of the ocean.
We are secluded and peaceful, yet five minutes from Hull Bay with a restaurant, bar, and live music several nights a week, if not nightly. SUPs, kayaks, and snorkel gear rentals are available nearby, as well as boating, fishing, and diving charters. Magens Bay beach is a short ten minute drive. Several award-winning restaurants are located close by, and the historic town of Charlotte Amalie with its duty-free shopping, museums, entertainment, and numerous restaurants is fifteen minutes away.
The Dancing Orchid Villa can also be rented in its entirety as a short-term vacation rental or for more extended stays.
We stayed at the Dancing Orchid for 6 nights. Very private and quiet location off the beaten path... away from the traffic and hustle of the city. Mary was a wonderful host who was always interested to offer ideas of local things to do. We liked the idea of “bed and breakfast” so we could wake at our own pace, get ready for the day, and have a nice breakfast prepared for us by our host before we headed out to explore. We did not want to search for someplace to have breakfast... being on the north side overlooking Magens Bay, we’d have to travel. A vehicle is a must... preferably a Jeep. Once you get use to where you are, it is very easy to explore the entire island ... which we did every day! We would definitely recommend this property... with all the conveniences of home. Mary did a great job with this property!
The Dancing Orchid is a beautiful home, with a spectacular view. The bedrooms and bathrooms are both large, modern and well done. The house is immaculate. Mary is an excellent host and offers a delicious breakfast to start your day. This is an excellent location, minutes from Hull Bay, Magens Bay and a short drive to town, yet quiet and secluded. I hope she has availability when I return, I would love to stay at the dancing Orchid again.
Spent 6 days at the Orchid and enjoyed each one. Our host met us at the airport to insure we found our way and got settled at our convenience. The house is newly built very clean and completely upscale property! The property is off the beaten path, secluded and sits right on the shoreline with great bay view and awesome island breeze. We never felt pressured to conform to any schedule and others staying at the property were very nice. We have family living close and this was awesome not having to impose. We will definitely recommend this place and will be finding the next opportunity to book as soon as we can!
This Villa was wonderful! It is a beautiful home and location, that is in pristine condition and well cared for. It is quiet & off the beaten path, with a constant gentle Caribbean breeze. Yet you are able to access the entire island with a fairly short drive. The host, Mary, is an absolute gem. She is kind, responsive, very helpful and informative. We highly recommend a stay at the Dancing Orchid Villa with Mary!
We had the most amazing time in St. Thomas staying at the beautiful Dancing Orchid B&B. Mary, our hostess, was thoughtful and helpful with delicious breakfast each morning and suggestions for excursions each day. The views were stunning and the large rooms inviting. I highly recommend staying at The Dancing Orchid when visiting St. Thomas.
The home is very beautiful and provided me with an inspirational work/vacation environment. The view from the balcony literally made me catch my breath because it was so stunning. There is also a nice breeze, which I didn't realize before traveling how much I enjoyed to feel refreshed. The kitchen was SO well stocked I had every item I could want for cooking/baking. I'm serious, if you like to cook your own food you will be AMAZED with the kitchen! The area is hilly but if you are not afraid of a good walk then Hull bay is only about 20min walk away. Here there is a beach front and bar/restaurant. Mrs.Mary, who owns the house was so kind and interesting to talk to. I highly recommend staying here and if I travel to the USVI I will likely stay again.
