"We found Pelican House online and wondered if it could be as wonderful as it looked online. We telephoned with endless questions so warmly and willingly answered by Nancy & Jason. That certainly invoked confidence. We were well instructed what to expect upon arrival to ST Thomas, how to ferry to ST John & where to meet them after we picked up our jeep. How nice to make that journey knowing that after we met, we would be escorted to the house to ensure we would find the home easily. So, how did we feel upon viewing this location that we hoped would be good? IT SURPASSED OUR EXPECTATIONS!!! We were promptly given the tour of our space and amenities. Few places are as good as advertised but how wonderful to see our spectacular view, and numerous spaces available to fit the mood. There is an amazing gazebo with comfortable furniture that is a space I can still close my eyes and imagine myself at. A separate outdoor deck for lounging, dining & grilling are at your disposal. Or simply walk down the steps to your private beach with chairs, kayaks, life vets. You can swim, snorkel, kayak or do nothing. The sea grape trees give shade to such a lovely spot. At the house there is also a screened living/dining space that was so comfortable. Two bedrooms but it was just my husband and myself so we chose the bedroom facing the water, standing up each day to the glory of our view and sleeping to the sounds of the waves. The kitchen is equipped with all you need but if you need something just ask. Soda, water and a bottle of rum was a nice gift to get us started on our vacation! Noodles to swim with, extra suntan lotion, beach towels, folding beach chairs to take around the island all there for your use. We covered the island with our jeep and went to so many of the beautiful beaches each with different attributes and snorkel opportunities. Saw barracuda, puffer, tarpon, mutton snapper, squid, and all the colorful fish you can imagine. Market nearby for emergency but better options/prices in Coral Bay. Went to Annaberg Sugar Plantation Ruins. Interesting and loved the view too. Saw mongoose, deer, iguana. We also took advantage of Jason's services as a boat captain. He met with us and arranged a trip tailored to us. I am extremely sensitive to motion so only did part of the trip but got to see sea stars & sea cucumbers. My husband spent a full day at sea, stops & BVI. He had a blast! Thx Jason & Nancy! Enough? GO! It's private, quiet & beautiful!"
