  • "No Worries" at High Blue Heaven!

    "Just returned from our MARVELOUS stay at High Blue Heaven. The house is very nicely located close to the many attractions the island has to offer but you may just want to hang out on the deck and enjoy the superb view of Magen’s Bay! We loved the island décor and the personal touches that the owner has added throughout the house. The two bedrooms offered great privacy for two couples and the open floor plan with the living room, dining and kitchen area gives the house a real “home away from home” comfortable feeling. We loved sitting on the deck having our morning coffee enjoying the views and the iguanas in the neighboring treetops. The pool was a little bit cool for us – our mistake – we should have requested to heat it and would recommend that option to future guests visiting in January. Caretaker Robin was extremely helpful with information on the area and any questions we had about HBH. She was always only a phone call, email, or text message away! We had a wonderful time…such a nice break from the snow and ice in upstate NY. Thank-you so much for sharing your lovely get-away place with us!"

  • Perfect St. Thomas Getaway

    "Secret Garden was the perfect girls getaway. The Villa was beautiful with a fully equipted gormet kitchen. Although there are plenty of restaurants in town, the Villa was beautiful and relaxing; we cooked meals out on the balcony using the grill and loved every minute of it. Werner was the perfect host. He had a driver meet us at the airport and although we rented a car, we followed him to the villa to make sure we had no trouble finding it. Keep in mind that driving in ST. Thomas is stressful, they drive on the left. Werner made sure we had what we needed. We spent a day over on St Johns snorkeling Cinnamon Bay, Honeymoon Bay, and Truck Bay. We took a catamaran to the British Virgin Islands where we explored the Baths and did some fantastic snorkeling. We bought at groceries at a little grocery store in Red Hook, I believe the name was Food Town. That said Werner is happy to do your shopping for you and considering the stress in driving around the island-I would suggest you take him up on that!! Werner will also make arrangements to get you anyplace you want to go! Again I would suggest you take him up on it....we drove and we survived but honestly, driving there is quite an adventure of its own! I can highly recommend Secret Garden as a perfect getaway. It was a vacation we hope to repeat, we loved every minute of it🐠🌊"

  • Wonderful and hospital

    "This place is on the North Side where the regular folk live. It's great, as its quiet from the bustle of the town. If you want to go to town its a 15 minute drive. Hulls Bay is where the locals hang out and everyone was very kind. Definitely have the blackened shrimp tacos there. The place is clean and decorated nicely. Joe was a superb host, meeting us at the airport and then showing us the ropes. His years and experience as a sea captain makes him an ideal host. If you leave late in the day he is sure to leave the lights on for your safe arrival later in the evening. Kitchen had nice dished and cooking pots, which is not necessary the norm in a VRBO and a welcome surprise. Breakfast with the view of the harbor and mountains can't be missed and we were lucky to have a rainbow on our last day. Definitely try paddle-boarding and enjoy watching the pelicans and surfers. If you are new to the island, 1) don't be skittish on the roads. They are fine and just not mainland levels. 2) If you have your quarks for certain spices or herbs, bring them as food on the island is expensive. We brought a few bits and it made a difference. House is: 0 seconds for a fabulous view. Seriously, even in bed it's gorgeous. 5 minutes from the beach 10 minutes from a Kahlua Chocolate Boozy Milkshake 15 minutes to the city Best food was the blacked shrimp at the bar in Hull bay and the Rum Shanty in French Town. Try the fish tacos and bean fritters. If you are noise sensitive, bring some earplugs. The way the house is situated echos the roar of the ocean and during a breezy night it can get loud. I bought a pair and slept soundly. My partner and I had a lovely time. Will come back again. Joe is a wonderful host."
