Historic Eensomhed Estate – U.S. Virgin Islands

Situated just above Hull Bay Beach on more than three acres, this is one of the best surfing venues in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Estate Eensomhed (Danish for solitude) beckons surfing enthusiasts looking for a unique experience. Secreted behind a gated entry, and surrounded by ruins dating back to 1699, the property is a very private, two-bedroom residence with a pool, a large outdoor dining area, and incredible panoramic views overlooking Hull Bay and the Atlantic. This rarity is within walking distance to a sugar-white beach, as well as to local boat charters and other surfing destinations, plus fishing, diving, snorkeling, and beach hopping in the USVI and BVI. Stroll down to the neighborhood restaurant, Hull Bay Hideaway, which offers outdoor dining, including fresh fish caught daily and a casual friendly atmosphere. A solar field says “modern,” acreage says “ample room for additional conscientious development” or just “live quietly.” Eensomehed is a turnkey residence offering proximity to uncrowded waves, a surfer’s haven under the U.S. flag.
