"We spent a glorious week at Ginger Thomas with my son & his fiancé. Quite simply, the house is perfect; especially for 2 couples, as the 2 master suites offer the ultimate in comfort & privacy. Jim & Tara do everything to ensure that your stay is stress free---no worries. The kitchen was stocked with the items we had requested before arrival, which was great, as we arrived late in the day; this made it easy for us to immediately, with cocktails in hand & a plunge into the pool, to start enjoying our stay at Ginger Thomas. This lovely home has everything you could possibly want. Fantastic views, located close to town, gorgeous beaches and everywhere else on St. John. What a great kitchen opening up to that beautiful deck with the pool; each morning having coffee with that view and many evening very happy hours on that deck were incredible. Seeing the full moon set across Cruz Bay in the wee hours of morning was something I’ll never forget. Words cannot express what an absolutely wonderful island home Ginger Thomas is and what a beautiful, fun & friendly island St. John is.…so sad to leave. We will be back."

"On March 7 to 14, we decided to take our vacation to the next level and took our trip to St. John, Virgin island. In our arrival at La bella Villa. This house was located on coral bay with beautiful view looking down the beautiful water. it was quite place and well equip with every thing such as swimming pool, television, full kitchen and an outdoor shower. The house was build with a beautiful stone and Mahogany wood. it has an amazing view with the outdoor shower looking at the beautiful stars in the evening while taken a shower. La bella Villa is just a few minutes from the beaches and shopping center. The house is surrounded with natural beauty and natural breeze of the ocean. it is very clean and well organize inside and out. it is a place worth staying gain. Thanks to Sally and Mr. Franz for having such a beautiful vacation home."

"We spent 10 nights at Sweet Wind with our two teenagers last month and loved it! The location is unique with spectacular views of the undeveloped east end. The Trade Winds came right into our bedrooms and offered us the most relaxing sleep ever. The cottages are beautifully crafted down to the smallest detail.We loved the outdoor shower and the privacy that the layout offered. We snorkeled at a different beach everyday and loved coming home to Coral Bay. Nina is an amazing artist and musician. She graciously shared her guitar and ukulele so both my husband and son could play. We are definitely coming back and telling our friends!"

"My husband and I enjoyed celebrating our 10 year anniversary with a week of quiet, relaxation in St. John. We fell in love with Coral Bay- and Bambooshay was perfect for us. Amazing location with excellent views and great amenities for a great vacation. We went into Cruz Bay a few times and always returned to Coral Bay thankful that this was were we were staying. Much more relaxed, peaceful, secluded. The villa had a kitchen that had all the cooking appliances and dishes that we needed. We went by the grocery store before arriving and stocked the refrigerator...and were surprised by the staple items that were fresh and already in the refrigerator. We snorkeled each day on a new beach. The reviews and info Scott and Lori have given are great tour guides. We were intrigued by the island wild life and enjoyed watching donkey's, deer, goats, chickens, and more cross the road at anytime! The beauty of the island was enough to make us want to return one day...maybe with our children next time! Thank you for an amazing week that we will never forget!"
