"This is the place for those who want a private adventure retreat away from the tourist areas at a great value. The listing description was accurate with a nice layout for 1 or 2 couples. the largest positive point for us was the snorkeling right in front of the house. A 40 to 50 yard trail leads to a secluded beach with amazing snorkeling for more than a mile to the east and almost a mile to the west (more than most folks can accomplish). there is world class coral right in front of the house that was already old when Columbus arrived in the area, and there is such limited access to the water along this shoreline, ensuring the reef seclusion and beauty. We were in the water 7 times in 4 days and never saw another person in the water with us. If I had to say anything negative it would be that the place could use a little more dusting, but Carolyn was a great host, and ensured we had everything we needed. We recommend renting a jeep as the roads are steep in places and if you like to explore like us it is a must to have 4 wheel drive. We took the ferry to St John on one day and loved hiking the Reef Bay Trail and snorkeling at the end (Hike back up was tough but worth it, make sure you see the petroglyphs). Coral World was also worth going to, and we did spend an enjoyable day exploring Charlot Amalie. Carolyn made it easy for us on arrival by recommending we obtain our vehicle and go get groceries, and then she will meet you at whichever grocery store when you call, and then lead you to the house for check in. The car rental we chose (we recommend Discount cars, they pick you up at the airport minutes after calling them) and the grocery stores are minutes form the airport, and the home is 15 to 20 minutes from there. you can reach the furthest points on the island from the home in 30 minutes at the most.
Thank you Carolyn
Wes & Lisa"

"We had a wonderful time here and would definitely stay again if we return to St. Thomas. The pictures of the villa don't do it justice. The views are incredible and everything was clean and well maintained. We traveled with another couple and really enjoyed being away from the busy tourist areas. You will definitely want to have a car but this location is close to some of the most beautiful beaches and there are several good restaurants in the area. Beds were comfortable and tons of windows and patio doors let in the ocean breezes and sounds of waves crashing. We never turned on the television but we did use the wi-fi which was nice to have because our cell phone provider (Verizon) didn't seem to have a presence on the island. Overall we had a fantastic vacation and were very glad we chose this property."

"To say this place was beautiful is an understatement. Words do not do enough to capture the beauty of Villa Eau Claire. We arrived in the early afternoon and were greeted at the airport by the incredibly warm and helpful Julia. She took us to the supermarket and then we traversed the hilly roads to arrive at our condo. The views are amazing. We swam daily with sea turtles right in the pocket beach on the premise. We walked down to the big beach and enjoyed some pizza and rum punch and we spent the days snorkeling and swimming around the bay. This location was perfect for our two teenagers 15 and 17 and our friends that joined us in the studio apartment below. The condo was open, breezy and had everything we needed. The studio can get a little stuffy when it's quite warm, but the air conditioner cools it down quickly.
My husband developed a very serious tooth infection while on vacation and Annika the owner not only recommended a dentist, but also allowed us a later than usual checkout so he could rest before flying home. The only downside we experienced is no broom in the main condo (at least not one we could locate), but the people next to use let us borrow their broom. Oh and driving. Driving is a risky endeavor on the island, but one we adjusted to.
We cannot wait to return to this little slice of heaven on earth!"

"We had three couples down to St. Thomas for a wedding of a longtime friend. The Villa could not have been more perfect. Best tropical breezes on the island, and we were there in peak summer. Beautiful kitchen, bedrooms, pool, hot tub, etc. The Property Manager and Cleaning Staff were both excellent! Used "freshfoodsVI.com" for initial grocery stocking, which was great. Superb View of Magen's Bay, BVI, St. John, and the wonderful sunrises. Will rent this Villa again anytime we go to St Thomas in the future."
