  • Great condo for St. Thomas getaway

    "My husband visited St. Thomas for Spring Break, and really enjoyed our stay at the Nightwind. Pros: -Located in very nice condomenium with nice amenities (beach within walking distance, next to pool and bar & grill) -Owners came and visited our first night to make sure we were settled and answer any questions -Condo fully stocked with kitchen supplies for up to 4 people. There is also a collection of dry goods/alcohol/toiletries left over from previous guests. Be sure to take an inventory before you go and purchase anything. -Only a 5 minute drive to Red Hook (bars and restaurants) -Condo clean upon arrival (towels smelled fresh) -Condo also had beach towels, chairs, and snorkel equipment in the storage nook next to the TV -Great view and ocean breeze from patio (we fell asleep on the patio chairs one afternoon) Cons: -None! The condo came with everything we needed for our vacation, and we would love to return."

  • Great Location and Fabulous view!!

    "My husband and I stayed at Lion's Gate Getaway for a week and we absolutely loved it!!! The apartment is very comfortable with a full kitchen stocked with all amenities and appliances you could think of: blender, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, Cuisinart...even some little beer cozies! There is air conditioning, however we were fine with just leaving the windows open, as there is a great cross breeze that blows through and keeps the place cool. The front porch is AMAZING! It provides a terrific view of the harbor as well as the trees and hills. It served as a great outdoor dining area where we ate a few meals as well as had morning coffee out there. Mosquitos love me, so it was great that there were mosquito coils in the kitchen for use when sitting out on the porch so I was not a "buffet." There is a queen sized bed that was comfortable with high quality linens and pillows. The pillows are soft, which we were okay with. The stone shower was huge! Good water pressure and no issues with hot water. This was a great location as we were walking distance to the Red Hook area which has many bars, restaurants, a grocery store (Moe's), as well as the Inter-island ferry dock right across the street. As this property is located at the TOP of a hill, it takes 2-3 minutes to walk into town (all downhill). However, to walk back up to Lion's Gate it is a STEEP hill. My hubby and I are in good shape and we timed it: 8 1/2 minutes to walk up the hill. So it is doable...but it is a climb. It does help to burn off rum drinks we had each day though :) That said, it is just as easy to get a cab that will bring you back up to the property if you don't want to climb. So don't let that deter you. We loved being up on that hill, as the view was phenomenal! To rent a car or not: If you rent a car, you will have a parking spot right in front of the property. I would say it's good to rent a car for at least part of your stay. It ensures you can sight see around the island. However, the cabs to go all over the island. They charge per passenger, but are fixed rates: so it ranges from $5-11 per person based upon the distance you are going. Do ask Max for suggestions on what to do and where to go. She is really great and helpful! We didn't do a sailing trip with her this visit, but fully will next time! Totally recommend this place for those wanting a place convenient to town with wonderful views."

  • Outstanding house

    "We came to st thomas for my son's wedding and could not have chosen a better house. Calypso realty was fantastic to work with, ensured that all of our needs were met. This was one of the best appointed houses I have ever rented, and we have rented many. It was spacious, each couple had their own space and their own air conditioner. The pool was outstanding, easily accessible for my 86 yr old mother. The kitchen was outstanding and meals were easy and there was plenty of room to work. There was more than ample seating around the pool and we found ourselves outside most of the time. For those that like adventure, the track down to the ocean offered a great workout. Having maid service midweek just added to our relaxation. Cannot wait to go back for a week of pure rest and relaxation, without the hectic preparations for a wedding"

  • Amazing, Awe-Inspiring Views!

    "As a traveler who places a great deal of value on view when traveling to the Caribbean, I have to say that I doubt very few can top the view from Villa Caribe! We had originally planned to stay on St. John where we were married five years before our visit, but were victims of online fraud, and we lucked into getting Villa Caribe last minute for Presidents' Day week when Sue & Dewey had a change of plans. I have to say, the view of St. John and straight down the chain of the BVIs is one not to be missed. The fantastic outdoor living area has couches, table and plenty of chairs, great for a family breakfast at sunrise, or drinks in the evening after a day of exploring. The eastward exposure also allows for cooling trade wind breezes, and you don't get pounded with afternoon sun, either, which is nice. The kitchen is ultra-modern and good for cooking family meals, and each bedroom is like it's own little suite with private bath, which was really nice. They even have Internet and DirectTV for those who refuse to disconnect, although I suggest you pass on that stuff unless you have to! We even enjoyed the musical instruments and selection of tropical music they have on hand. We had some older, less able family members with us, so being able to pull up in a driveway right by the front door with only one step was awesome (and pretty rare for the USVIs). The location is also tremendous - only a few minutes from the Red Hook ferry dock for trips over to St. John (we made several), but it also has very close proximity to about a half dozen of the best beaches in St. Thomas as well. It was also nice to be super close to the Food Center grocery, just down the hill, for a quick trip for food, beverage, or forgotten supplies. All in all, a superb villa that we highly recommend!"
