Recent East End reviews
"My husband and I visited St Thomas for the first time to celebrate his 40th. The unit was ideally located to visit the most popular beaches on the island and was a short drive to St John Ferry to see the national park. The security on the premises was much appreciated since they handled a little situation between us and another tourist who hit our parked car. They took very good care of us. I appreciated very much the unit's art, location, comfort and cleanliness. It was so very quiet and serene. We ate at Panga's which is just down a few set of stairs and enjoyed the views. Also Redhook spots were so easily accessible. Perhaps we can return again."Guest: Alma G. Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: January 23, 2014View listing
"We arrived with a very warm greeting from the owners Gail & Curlson. The Villa has very modern conveniences and had everything we needed. My wife and I occupied the villa and my daughter and boyfriend staying in the cottage. This gave us both privacy and a place to gather and have a couple meals. The pool yet small is very refreshing after a hot day of sight seeing as well as the spa. The bed was more comfortable than most 4 star hotels I have stayed in. It was close to many very good eating establishments and a short drive to the beaches. We found the locals very hospitable and fun. If you are looking for a place to stay while on this beautiful island look no further. It was quiet, the owners are non-obtrusive, but there if you need them. Always had great advice for the next place to go or eat. I would highly recommend this property."Guest: Dennis Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 24, 2014View listing
"Best Vacation ever said my 18y/o son, it doesn't get any better than that. This Villa has it all, pool short hike to a great beach with snorkeling, fantastic view and every amenity you can think of. Beach chairs, snorkeling equip, beach towels, coolers it was like being at a first class resort. The owners bent over backwards to make our stay the best. Recommendations were spot on, and I can't say enough about the home even band aids and iodine for an emergency. We will definitely be back."Guest: Roxie Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 17, 2014View listing
"The home was perfect! We enjoyed it immensely... it was clean, had a great views and completely equipped with everything we needed to make our stay an enjoyable one, from bottles of cruzan rum to spare eye contact solution (they cover every angle). Property manager met us at the airport and made us feel like VIP's every step of the way. We had many of our meals out on the deck which was great. Thank you very much for sharing your slice of paradise with us! Can't wait till next time!"Guest: Pesante Family Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 31, 2014View listing
