Description of the Charlotte Amalie vacation villa rental
What makes the magic of Christian Villa a vacation destination, a business trip but with the atmosphere of leisure, or a home in paradise is not explainable, but will be experienced. Island style life for anytime is a living for a lifetime. Christian Villa allows you, in a very short time, to have million dollar views of the harbor of Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, V.I. While relaxing on the balcony or terrace with a cup of your favorite beverage. It is a five minute drive to the heart of the city to shop until you drop; a five minute drive to crystal clear waters with white sandy beaches; a ten minute drive for a snorkel trip or day sail to St. John; a fifteen minute drive to Coral World to see the marine life up close and personal; a five minute drive to enjoy fantastic local food and drink; a fully functional office to get the business needs done in record time utilizing high speed internet, a computer, phone, printer and fax at your disposal. Need we continue? Christian Villa is the villa for you. The Villa combines the comforts of what a luxurious hotel will offer with the feel and look of a West-Indian Caribbean home. Christian Villa is spacious, yet flows from dining to living to relaxing to sleeping without any hassle.
Area Information
On your arrival, you will be greeted by a member of the staff to ensure that you collect all your belongings and then you are oriented to getting to the Villa easily and safely. Remember, we drive on the left. We accommodate your wishes and needs for some may want to just sit back and rest after a long trip; others are ready to see the sites. We are there to meet those needs. Prior to coming, you will receive lots of information as to how to prepare for your time in the islands. But now that you are here, we want to be sure that all your questions are answered. First timers usually have lots of questions. Don't hesitate to ask. The island is easy to get around, but it is always good to get a little guidance since GPS is not as accurate as anticipated. Welcome to Christian Villa.


Christian Villa is centrally located for it is within a five minute ride to many restaurants, beaches, grocery stores, shops and a marina--nothing is far but, at the Villa, one feels the peace and quiet of an island.

Wonderful Accommodations in the Caribbean

Wonderful Accommodations in the Caribbean

June 16, 2015

Cora exemplifies everything that I believe Airbnb desires in a host! She is the epitome of hospitality, as evidenced by her greeting us like family at the airport, getting us familiarized and settled into the villa (with healthy croissant sandwiches, salad, and juices provided after a long day of travel, that were greatly appreciated), and offering to and accompanying us to two local grocery stores for necessities. We were extremely comfortable with Cora from the very beginning, and she accompanied us to a local restaurant for delicious cuisine, as well as coordinated the VIP treatment (reserved parking at a friend's wonderful tea shop) in the chaotic downtown area. She also gave us plenty of space to explore the islands on our own, but offered the assistance of several people by phone (including herself) should we have questions about the villa, the island, etc. The villa is nothing short of phenomenal! The views were simply breathtaking from the veranda, the terrace, even by the pool! Breakfast on the veranda each day was a real treat! You are maybe one-half to two-thirds of the way up the hillside at the villa, which allows for the benefit of cooling trade winds and a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle below. We can honestly say that we feel not only that we experienced a wonderful stay at the villa, but that we were blessed with a new friend in Cora! From Franklin, WI · April 2015

Owner's reply:

Three different generations with very clear personalities coming together to enjoy Spring break and the 25th wedding anniversary. It was a delight for me for it brought back memories of the many wedding anniversaries my parents had at the Villa. I could tell that they were happy to be at the Villa--each member of the family enjoying the stay in his or her own way. It was a treat to have them. They took excellent care and appreciated the uniqueness of the Villa. I made new friends. Thank you

Luxurious Villa with Breathtaking Views

Estate Solberg #16, St. Thomas, 00802, Virgin Islands (U.S.)
Date of Stay
May 14, 2015
Our group of 10 stayed at Cora's villa for a long weekend in May to attend our friend's island destination wedding and had the time of our lives, many thanks to Cora's hospitality! Even though our large group arrived at the airport at different times, Cora arranged for either herself or her staff to come meet us in person and drive with us to the villa. Cora coached us on left-sided driving from the airport and then oriented us to the beautiful villa. Upon entry to the estate, it was obvious the property was impeccably maintained - the decor was lovely, and all the rooms and amenities were exactly as described. The villa is on a hill and the views of the coastline are breathtaking. The property was expansive and all 10 of us had more than enough personal space, while also enjoying the spacious shared common rooms and pool areas. Cora went the extra mile to accompany us to the local grocery store and also took us to a local restaurant!! She gave us plenty of space, though she made herself available by phone to help answer questions about the house or the island, and even allowed us to invite several other family and friends from the wedding to come for a BBQ one evening. This villa has all the amenities of a 5-star hotel but has the warmth of a home. Thank you, Cora, for an amazing vacation experience!

My Response
What an amazing group-friends since elementary school here to witness the union of two of their friends! I was a bit worried for the weather was not cooperating. In the Virgin Islands, we rarely have such heavy rain showers but it poured and poured yet at no time did any of the group show outward apprehension. And finally, at the last moment, the blue skies of paradise could be seen and the wedding, which was outdoors, happened without a hitch. And then, it rained again each day. Yet, their optimism, happiness and just being with each other was evident. It is great to host guests like these. And although one person was the head honcho, he made sure that everyone enjoyed themselves as they chose. They all enjoyed the local food. The owner and cook marveled at how at home they were. It was my pleasure to have them share my family home. I do hope they choose to visit again. And hopefully the weather will be true VI weather-sunny and breezy,

My Response
From the first communication, it was clear that, as a host, I would have a great experience with this family. Three different generations with very clear personalities coming together to enjoy Spring break and the 25th wedding anniversary. It was a delight for me for it brought back memories of the many wedding anniversaries my parents had at the Villa. I could tell that they were happy to be at the Villa--each member of the family enjoying the stay in his or her own way. It was a treat to have them. When I opened the Villa for guests I did not realize that it would be an opportunity to develop new friends. I can truly say that I have with the Haagensen family. I hope all other hosts can have a similar experience.

I am an interior designer from P.R. I love the design of the Villa. Looks analyzed and is in harmony and peaceful. The furniture goes so well with the decorations and the view. The experience here is relaxing. The colors go well with the theme of the house. Beautiful house!

I came to Christian Villa to stay for the duration of my Bachelorette vacation week!! It was the most beautiful and accommodating experience. First off, Dr. Cora was so knowledgeable and helpful every step of the way. She made sure we were capable of driving on the other side of the road, knew our directions and had groceries. I thoroughly appreciated everything she has done. Now the Villa itself is GOREGEOUS! The breakfasts on the terrace, the midnight swimming, the spacious living room and comfortable bedrooms all contributed to the best week. I can't wait to visit again. Thank you for an amazing stay and bachelorette. With love,

Thank you so much for being such a wonderful host. Your home is beautiful. Thank you for taking us around and making me comfortable driving around, getting use to the roads. Driving on the left took a little getting used to! Thank you for taking the time to make us feel right at home. If you ever come to Boston, make sure to contact us. Hope to see you again.

Literally from the moment I messaged Dr. Cora for more information regarding her beautiful property she was prompt, accommodating, and informative. This was my first time booking thus I felt a bit hesitant, but Dr. Cora answered any questions I had with clarity and accuracy. Upon our arrival in Saint Thomas, Dr. Cora helped us become adjusted to the left side driving, the mountainous roads, and the ins and outs of the property. She met us at the airport and even had sandwiches ready for us at villa! She was always available to answer any questions we had about the property AND about Saint Thomas. The listing description was completely accurate; in fact the property was even more beautiful than the images could even have shown. Dr. Cora has stocked the Christian Villa with everything you get from a hotel and more; hair dryers, shampoo, towels, detergent, pots and pans. This property makes five star hotels look meek. The view from her villa is breathtaking; it is nested high upon one of Saint Thomas hills. It is a luxury, renovated house with traditional St. Thomas charm. Without a doubt, I would stay here again. The convenience of this villa compared to a hotel is unmatched.

-Relaxing '5 star' stay
Estate Solberg #16, St. Thomas, 00802, Virgin Islands (U.S.)

I and my wife recently had the pleasure of staying for a short getaway vacation at the Christian Villa in St. Thomas USVI. We spent most of our time relaxing at the Villa, high above the bustle of St. Thomas. The Villa was wonderfully peaceful and quiet. I was perfectly content spending all my time there, strolling the long balconies, swimming in the pool, lying in the sun, and watching the sun rise and set against a background of mountains and sea. As an artist, I particularly enjoyed the collection of art that Ms. Christian has displayed throughout the Villa. Most of it is original art by Caribbean artists. In fact I have come to realize that Ms. Christian has one of the most remarkable collections of Caribbean art anywhere in the US Virgin Islands. It was a real pleasure wandering through the Villa exploring the 2 and 3 dimensional pieces on display. Ms. Christian has apparently been a collector for many years, and I certainly appreciated her talent for blending art collecting with interior design to produce an extraordinary vacation environment that is both comfortable and beautiful. I highly recommend the Christian Villa to discerning guests who welcome refinement as an essential feature of their vacation experience. Joseph Dominic Chielli / Church Street Studios LLC
