Situated on a crested knoll 850 feet above beautiful Hull Bay, this cottage offers some of the most spectacular views imaginable. To the east we see St. John, Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, and the numerous barrier islands of the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. To the north is the uninterrupted beauty of the ever-changing sea. Standing on your deck, the unimpeded view of the horizon will afford you the rare opportunity to witness the curvature of the earth.
We have bananas, papaya, mango, passion fruit, avocado, and the occasional pineapple growing on the grounds. Bougainvillea, frangipani, night blooming jasmine, and other flowers fill the air with sweet aromas. Agave cactus, thatch palms, flamboyant, mahogany, and coconut trees complete the picture, keeping us ever mindful of our good fortune in 'America's Paradise.'
But we're so much more than just another pretty place with a pool and hot tub! We want to make your visit an unforgettable experience. With that in mind we also provide:
-Complimentary 'meet and greet' service at the airport
-Pre-arrival shopping (Just send us a short list of what you'd like to have on hand when you get here--we'll do the rest!)

We loved our stay at Hull Bay Cottages. The place was clean, had the most perfect view and our hosts, were fantastic. George and Amalia (owners/hosts) were accessible if you wanted/needed them, but weren't at all invasive. The location was ideal and we couldn't have been happier. Pros: Incredible view; great, off-the-beaten path location; kind and knowledgeable hosts; clean; George does a pre-arrival grocery shop for you; they greet you and escort you to the property from the airport; peaceful and quiet...we could go on. Cons (and they are very small and incidental): the water pressure is not great in the shower...but this is to conserve water, which we understand. The pool was not usable while we were there (it was empty). This was a great spot and if we return to St. Thomas, we'll surely be back!

Hull Bay Cottages
When my future bride and I were searching for a honeymoon destination we knew we were searching for a home away from home. We didn't want to be in a resort and prefered to blend in with the locals. Hull Bay Cottages became our home and George schooled us on how to be a local. By far, this was the best trip we've been on.Booking the cottage couldn't have been easier and George asked us to send a grocery list so he could have everything we needed upon arrival. He picked us up from the airport and drove us over to the rental car then showed us the way to the cottage. The cottage was clean and the views from the deck were spectacular. And even though there were two other cottages rented out, we didn't see, or hear the other guests. Whatever you do, take George's advice on EVERYTHING! It's spot-on; from excursions to the off-the-beaten path restaurants, he didn't disappoint. We'll be back someday and will most definitely stay with Hull Bay Cottages again. Kevin and Nikki O'Toole

I just returned from a wonderful week at Hull Bay Cottages in St. Thomas. I was looking for a relaxing week in peace and quiet, and enjoyed the tranquility of the yellow cottage with its ultra private deck immensely ... so much, that I spent a lot of time there just reading and taking in the beautiful views of Hull Bay and Magens Bay. George could not have been nicer, from the very first response to my inquiry for availability to picking me up at the airport and bringing me to the rental car office, to advising me of places to visit and grocery shops to go to. And although I did not take him up on his offer to pick up some groceries prior to arrival, I certainly appreciated the thoughtfulness. The cottage was very cute, with a nicely equipped kitchen, a dining area, a living room with satellite TV, the deck with a bistro set and 2 comfortable lounge chairs with cushions, a bedroom with ample closet space, a loft with a separate bed and a bathroom. I enjoyed that the cottage was separate from the other buildings for privacy, yet part of a compound (incl. a pool) for socializing. Also, Hull Bay Cottages is away from the hustle and bustle, yet still close enough to Charlotte Amalie, beaches, and other attractions. I can highly recommend a stay there and am planning to return myself.

Great Honeymoon Destination!

We loved our stay at Hull Bay Cottages and we could not have picked a better place for our honeymoon. The view is absolutely priceless! George was a tremendous help throughout our stay and we also enjoyed our visits from Precious and Irene : )

Hull Bay Cottages are located off the beaten track on a road called Suicide Hill ~ a little daunting, however, definitely worth every moment we were fortunate to find this place and stay here for a week. George (our Host) greeted us at the airport and took us to an off property car rental business. We followed him back to our cottage, and he provided us with a print out of places and directions for restaurants he recommended, and also instructions on how to get around the Island. Having this was priceless.. Driving on the left side of the road was easy ~ finding road signs was a crap shoot. We managed to not get lost! We also submitted to him a grocery list before arriving of some basic provisions that were waiting for us in the fridge ~ nice touch George. Before arriving my partner and I have been through a lot of stress recently in our lives. We were in dire need of some major R&R. We spent our week checking out different beaches, day trip to St.John and time spent at the magnificent Trunk Bay, and also took a sailing/snorkeling trip to the BVI's ~ visiting Virgin Gorda, a couple of great snorkeling spots, and ending at my favorite place, the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke. Ate out every night for dinner ~ North Side Bistro & Brewery has stunning Atlantic views, tasty food and great service. On Saturday night a Jazz trio performed and blew us away. The vocalist, Gerry Harris, sang my favorite song, Caramel, which I heard the songwriter, Chiara Civello, at a jazz club in Rome several years ago perform this song. I almost fell off my chair. We would have never found this place if not for George's recommendation. We also ate a few times down the road at Hull Bay Hideaway ~ fish tacos (grouper caught that day) that were phenomenal. Our cottage gave us total privacy ~ which we were able to nude sun bathe every day and be one with nature.. We had WiFi so we could check our emails daily, but it was so fabulous to disconnect from the world for a week. On Tuesday nights Amalia hosts a girls night where a group of women gather to watch American Idol and eat pizza. That was the only time I had the opportunity to talk to Amalia, who was very gracious and is an avid snorkeler. Her Mango bread is sublime. I want that recipe! George is a trip ~ he has a very dry and irreverent sense of humor. By far he is the funniest person we had ever met. He has had a very interesting life ~ we enjoyed discussing politics and current events with him. What a lovely time we had.

Perfect week in paradise!
Perfect week in paradise!
My husband and I took our 5 month old son on our first family vacation to St. Thomas. It was tricky trying to decide where to stay but we found the best place for this memorable trip! Not only did we have an amazing view to enjoy our breakfast and our evening drinks but the private feel of being "home" was especially nice. The cottage has all the amenities that you could think of from an excess of fresh towels to bug spray. Our hosts, George and Amalie, could not be nicer. It really helped getting to our cottage and not having to run out to the grocery store straight away. George was able to get the few items we needed to welcome us to our vacation. They also provided the perfect playpen for the baby to sleep in. This helped lessen the packing load. We were able to use their grill which made for a perfect dinner in. On the nights we opted to go out George recommended some great places! Thirteen was a really amazing dinner. They also directed us to the best beaches... where to not go and what was best for us such as good shade for the baby. They convinced us that a day trip to St. John's would be worth it and they were so right, it was amazing and we are so glad we did not miss out. If you are looking for a private feel to your vacation this is the place! Even though there were a few other renters while we were there we seemed to always feel like the only ones at the pool or even enjoying the view on our deck while playing some music. The cottage was clean and there was nothing we did not have. The beaches were close and easy to get to especially Magen's Bay! If you go to Magen's Bay and park as far down away from the crowds you feel like you are on your own beach :) Thank you for an amazing vacation.

Perfect Relaxing Vacation
Perfect Relaxing Vacation
My husband and I spent 3 nights at Hull Bay Cottages in early December 2011 before we started a one week sailing trip. We thought it offered everything we were looking for, the views from the deck were beautiful. George met us at the airport so we could follow him up to the property and he made a grocery run for us so we had a few items when we arrived. George and Amalia are very gracious hosts. I have recomended it to serveral people looking for the perfect vacation. I hope to book again in the near future.

Our trip to St. Thomas was the most amazing and relaxing vacation we've ever had and George and Amalia helped make that happen! George was prompt in all of his responses, we received superior assistance and information prior to and after our arrival, George met us at the airport and guided us up the narrow and winding road to his hilltop retreat and we snacked on the most amazing Mango bread, compliments of Amalia. They were the perfect hosts - there when you need them and not there when you don't! :) Our cottage view was heavenly and we found it difficult to leave the deck. We rented a car and enjoyed driving around the island - we also took the ferry (and the jeep) over to St. John and enjoyed a day there. We relaxed, we went to Magen's Bay, we cooked a little and ate out a little, and we have gained new friends in George and Amalia. Enjoy Hull Bay beach - it's close and convenient. Magen's Bay has a $10 charge to enter (during certain times) but it is well worth it - easy to see why it is one of the world's top beaches! The island is hilly but we drove downtown every morning and went for a run along the water. Caution - keep left. We will return and we will stay at Hull Bay - we recommend you do the same. Thanks for such a wonderful trip, George and Amalia!!

Owner response: Thanks for choosing to stay with us Heather, it was wonderful being ableto share our good fortune with you and Scott. Thank you also for the wonderful comments, we love being remembered for the right reasons. Please stay well and Scott please stay safe. We look forward to your return sometime after your deployment ends. Semper fi Warm tropical regards, George
My husband and I renewed our wedding vows on the cottage deck...the view is more than spectacular!! The pictures do not do the place justice. The cottage was the perfect size with a constant cool breeze...no air conditioning needed. The hospitality above all was worth our trip. George met us at the airport, helped us with our car rental, and had our groceries waiting for us upon our arrival. We will be back!! I highly recommend the cottage rental as oppossed to the resort experience. You get a true feel of the local living and get to make some great friends. I can't thank George enough for the memories, the location, and the great experience! This trip will never be forgotten!

Absolutly Amazing Experience
Absolutly Amazing Experience
Our stay was wonderful. It all started by being picked up from the airport by George, just like old friends. He even made the first Grocery shopping for us, so we could start our vacation the minute we arrived. The View from the Cottage is breathtaking. The Cottage itself is decorated in a carribean style, that makes you feel comfortable right away. We just loved the blue bedroom. With everything you could wish for available from a fully equiped kitchen to the snorkling equipment and Beachchairs. George and Amalia even organised Beachtoys and a Babybed for our little son. We are glad we picked the place up on the hill and altough you need a car the location is a perfect starting point to get to every Point on the Island easily. It's 10 Minutes to wonderful Megans Bay and about 15-20 Min to Town. And you come back and have your peacfull quiet Blacony with the most Amazing view. (The pictures can't quite show how beautiful and colorfull it really is). We also got insider information about great Restaurants which were outside the Touristspots. We higly recommend Hull Bay Cottages and are more then willing to come back soon.
