"The house & location were perfect. The views were spectacular! Although it's not right on the beach, the secured area was exactly what we were looking for on our all girls trip. House, rooms and beds were clean and well kept. I would highly recommend this property! Hope to return soon!"

"My husband and I throughly enjoyed staying here for our honeymoon. Everything was clean and organized nicely. We really enjoyed the master suite - the space and decorations were great. Every morning, we would open up the windows and gaze out over Hull Bay to watch the sunrise. That gorgeous view is forever in my memory! The gourmet kitchen was great and had all the space and appliances that we needed, including a blender (perfect for making smoothies with the yummy produce from the shops in town). We didn't think about bringing bug spray, but thankfully there was some there as well as lavender lotion (a natural bug repellant) and some sunscreen. We really enjoyed relaxing in the pool and on the deck furniture. When we made meals, we enjoyed eating both inside and outside while watching the breathtaking sunsets and views.
Aside from the wonderful Villa Tryst, the location is superb! One of our favorite excursions was snorkeling. We did an epic night snorkel and all day snorkel tour with St. Thomas Scuba & Snorkel Adventures (http://www.stthomasadventures.com), and we highly recommend them! Be sure to bring extra sunscreen though! :) We saw sea turtles, sting rays, an octopus, starfish, glow-in-the-dark fish, a nurse shark (harmless!), and many other tropical sea creatures. It was awesome!
We shopped at the Fruit Basket and K-Mart. There are some excellent restaurants too! We are vegan and enjoyed vegan sushi, smoothies, fruit ice cream, and other vegan meals both near Villa Tryst and in Charlotte Amalie. But whatever your diet preference, you'll find so much to choose from!
We also spent a day exploring the island of St. John. While beach hopping and snorkeling, we saw stingrays and beautiful tropical fish. We also got to explore some old ruins near Watermelon Bay.
I seriously could go on and on about all the wonderful things about Villa Tryst and the beautiful location! I suppose the best recommendation I could make for it is that we want to come back. We want to come back so badly. Thank you to the owners for such a wonderful stay!"

"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 returned from paradise yesterday and We simply have absolutely nothing but positive remarks to make about High Blue Heaven. The house is amazing and the view is simply spectacular. Robin is one of the nicest and accommodating people we have ever met. We loved St Thomas. We spent most mornings and early afternoons out of the house seeing the sights and spent late afternoons and evenings at the house enjoying the pool and the sunset. We didn't come inside until it was time to go to bed. The constant breeze was so relaxing. We are already discussing when we can return and we would not think of staying anywhere else but High Blue Heaven."
