Caret Bay house description

Explore the Caribbean from your own slice of paradise. Reefside Escape is an extremely private 900 square foot, 2 bedroom, 2 bath villa buried in the Caribbean jungle. This property offers a stunning 180 degree ocean view and is perched just 30 feet over a spectacular Caribbean reef. Your own secluded, completely private white sand beach is just a two minute walk through the rain forest.

Relax on the huge 700 square foot deck as you grill some fresh fish or lobster, watch the sunset and enjoy a pina colada. Read in the hammock, retreat into the air conditioned bedrooms or leave the sliding glass doors open all night and sleep to the sound of crashing waves directly below you.

Escape reality but continue to enjoy the comforts of home with satellite TV, a full kitchen, king size beds, gas grill, and outdoor dining.

Owners live nearby and are happy to meet you at the airport, take you to your rental car, escort you to the property and give you tips on "island living."

Car rental is a must at this property and 4 WD jeep rental is strongly encouraged. Accessing this property, requires being able to walk down the 71 steps leading from the driveway to the actual villa.

Reefside escape offers a chance for a Caribbean adventure you are unlikely to forget. See our website (link located below next to the calendar) for more information and pictures.

                We had a great time. The place is a real adventure from the drive there to the access to the beach. It was exactly what we wanted. It is secluded and peaceful. Not for those who are un-energetic. We saw beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The rock climbing was lots of fun.

                We enjoyed our stay in this house. It was comfortable and had everything we needed for a perfect vacation. All rooms have a beautiful view of the ocean and we could watch sunrises and sunsets from the deck. Viewing the starry sky at night was mesmerizing, and the sounds of the ocean and jungle were peaceful and relaxing. We found the snorkeling was among the best on the island. If you're a good swimmer you can snorkel all the way to beautiful, sandy, Neltjeberg beach. We saw lots of coral varieties and other sea life -- we loved snorkeling here and recommend this nice house to everyone. Thank you Carolynn!

                I was so looking forward to our stay at Reefside but it left me with a lot to be desired. I felt the description listed was not accurate. The location is great but the house is in need of care. We found it dirty and unkept. Screens were ripped allowing bugs to come in. Dishes, pots and pans were woren and old, the refrigerator was dirty and sticky. I really enjoy coffee but not using the coffee pot there! The owner was helpful but perhaps needs help in maintaining this property. Sheets dirty, beds with bugs,... really old washer and dryer.....doors that stick and very really hard to open and close. Hammock broken, broken tables and chairs and everything dirty. Cozy and charming, this place is not. We loved the Islands and enjoyed traveling about in a jeep. We enjoyed the Islanders and had a great fishing trip with a charter service. Definitely eat at Cousins in town, its a wonderful restaurant! So, enjoy the islands but stay someplace else...

                It is always kind of scary booking site unseen but the picture do not do this justice. Carolyn is such a sweetheart. She met us at the car rental place and we followed her back to the house. She tood us to the market first to get a few supplies. Thank goodness because we never would have found it. Once you drive up and down the mountain side a couple times, its a no brainer. The roads are scarey all over the island but definitely worth it. The stairs are a bit much but conside that your daily workout...eat more!!! Probably the best snorkeling on the island. We will hopefully come back and stay here again in the future! Thanks Carolyn!

                We recently stayed at this amazing property and would recommend it to anyone that wants privacy and incredible views. The drive to the house is definitely an adventure as the others mentioned, but a great memory that we will always cherish! The house sits out over a wonderful reef with a private beach as well, and you can leave the doors open at night and listen to the ocean. We'll be back!

                Wonderful cottage right on the ocean. The most amazing snorkeling that we have ever seen was right out from the beach area at the cottage, it was easy to get to when you go a little way down the beach to the east. The owner (Mrs. B) being on sight at the top of the steps was nice. She gave us great information about St.Thomas, and was available for anything we needed assistance with. Take her recommendation seriously that you should rent a jeep. The drive to and from the cottage is an adventure. We enjoyed the large deck and spent most of our time outside during our stay. Our only real complaint was that the beds were very firm but that is not unusual for rentals I have discovered.
