"We considered ourselves so lucky to find Hidden Cove and awesome host, Joe, just a month before our trip to St. Thomas. Joe is an absolute class act, the perfect balance between hospitable and helpful but respectful of your space, and the house is just unbelievable. My wife and I are more vrbo than resort kind of people. We had originally wanted more of the St. John experience but we weren't thrilled with the St. John prices and limited location options. We wanted a quiet place that was clean, comfortable, and well priced without all the downsides of the lower priced spots (bugs, buried in the middle of the island, etc.). We found Hidden Cove to be the best of everything, but for the St. Thomas price. The price was right, the location was unbeliavable (right above the water with such a colorful garden and space between neighbors), the neighborhood is very safe, the best snorkeling in the morning was right out the front door, the sunsets were perfect from your deck or the rocks down below, and for two people, the size of the place was all we needed. Big bedroom, beautiful bathroom, and a quaint kitchen and front room. The decor was very tasteful and very Caribbean as well. We mostly were out and about checking out the island or hiking or beaching over at St. John's (the ferry ride with a car is only $50 round trip), and most nights we did dinner at the Hull Bay Hideaway which was a friendly, laid back place that had the right kind of vibe at the end of the day. Their food was good too (great burgers, sushi, etc.).
Although we hate to see this place get so crowded that it may become tough to find an open week for us (selfish), it really is a place we would recommend to anyone and to any taste for travel. We have already passed Joe's number on to many of our closest friends.
Joe, we hope to see you again soon!"
