PETERBORG PENINSULA, ST. THOMAS5 bedrooms, 5½ baths, sleeps 10
Flying high atop Sydney's Fancy—the zenith of the Peterborg Peninsula on the north coast of St. Thomas—this villa gets its name from its famed garden. The Adirondack-strewn lawn is blessed with night views so spectacular that star gazing could trump sunbathing as your favorite pastime. Come daylight, the villa wows with a design that evokes a floating-in-the-sky feeling thanks to infinity edges on multiple sides of the property—the most spectacular is the whitewashed, Santorini-style swimming pool. The view is vast, with the British and U.S. Virgin Islands on the horizon.
