Fodor's Expert Review Villa Santana

2602 Bjerge Gade, 2D Denmark Hill, Charlotte Amalie, Saint Thomas, 00802, U.S. Virgin Islands Fodor's Choice

Built by exiled General Antonio López Santa Anna of Mexico, this 1857 landmark provides a panoramic view of the harbor and plenty of West Indian charm, which will make you feel as if you're living in a charming slice of Virgin Islands history. Each of the rooms is unique and lovely. Two favorites are La Mansion, a former library that is now an elegant villa with a large living area crowned by cathedral ceilings, full kitchen, two baths, and four-poster bed; and El Establo, a three-bedroom house with a full kitchen and laundry facilities that is rented by the week. Modern amenities aren't lacking, so you can sit by the pool with your laptop using Wi-Fi.
