  • A Little Piece of Paradise

    "Whispering Palms was a magical place to stay for our week's vacation. Beginning with Joanne and Ken meeting us at the airport, our week couldn't have been better. It is a darling cottage, with the wrap around screened in living area and fabulous views of Magen's Bay, the ocean, and the surrounding hillsides. It's even more charming than the pictures show :-). The size was perfect for my husband and I (we enjoyed having the extra bedroom, but it could easily accomodate four people) and it was stocked with all the amenities we needed (towels, beach bags, full kitchen set up, linens,etc). We loved the openess and sense of being in nature. Having a parking spot was a bonus! It is also centrally located, we didn't have to drive too far to get to most anywhere we wanted to go. Joanne was the most helpful person I have ever rented from, she went above and beyond whenever I had a question or needed help finding something. She even took us to the market before taking us 'home'. Her suggestions for food, recreation, transportation, and shopping were spot on. (Sib's for local flavor!) We definitely recommend this charming cottage and would gladly stay again."

  • Wonderful family vacation!

    "We stayed at Villa Eau Claire with our 3 kids ages 10, 12 and 14. We had a wonderful time checking out the wildlife around the property: lizards, iguanas, pelicans diving for fish, schools of small fish being chased by larger fish, sea turtles, etc. All of which were visible from the balcony overlooking the wonderful blue Magen's Bay. No need for a pool because the water at the beach is perfect for swimming, wading, floating and snorkeling. We walked to Magen's bay beach in the water and it was a fun adventure where we rented paddle boards for the kids. We took the ferry to St. John one day, went out on a fishing boat another day, rented snorkels at a dive shop and checked out Koki beach and Linquist beach for amazing snorkeling adventures. Lots of fun for the kids and plenty to do while also very relaxing for the adults. No matter what we did, it was such a treat to come back to the beautiful Villa Eau Claire! We relaxed on the deck and had cocktails on the beach and ate dinner each night on the balcony with the lights twinkling on the mountain across the bay and enjoyed checking out the different ships that would anchor there at night. The property was incredible! We would open all the doors and feel the sea breezes, the views were like a dream, beds very comfortable (an air mattress was provided for our third child.) Julia gave us a great welcome at the airport, took us to the grocery store and got us settled upon arrival. She was cheerful and helpful during our stay. There were fresh flowers in a vase to welcome us to the beautiful home. Everything was immaculately clean and well maintained. We had a wonderful visit! Thank you!"

  • second visit . . .just as wonderful

    "This was the second visit to the Villa. This time we stayed in the one bedroom one bath. WE had previously stayed in the two/one bath. . . both were excellent. The Villa's are well equipped, and the location is ideal. We spent most of our trip in the private beach but also waded/swam to the famous Magens Bay. Water is crystal clear, breeze was beautiful. Never had to use the very convenient air conditioning. We've been to St Thomas many times and I don't think there is a better place to stay. We brought our own portable rafts, but there are a few noodles available for use. The only thing we missed were beach chairs if you wished to travel over to some of the other beaches. That is the only thing we would have loved and buying them in St Thomas would have been rather expensive. But you really have everything else you need. WE purchased grocery's at "Cost U Less' which we found a better value than other food marts. The kitchen had everything you'd need. Even sugar for morning coffee. Fabulous trip, easy to book, owners have a gem!"

  • Paradise...enough said!!!!

    "Secret Garden is Paradise... enough said!! One MUST experience this little piece of heaven! My family and my fiance and I traveled to this place I call Paradise for our wedding. We had not organized a thing and Werner and his staff were more than amazing! We had the wedding every woman (couple) dreams of! Werner treated me as a Queen and my family just the same! I can't thank Werner and his staff enough for a memory that was created for a life time! We arrived and everything was handled. Every detail was taken care of before you could think of it! The villa is breath taking. The view puts you in a trance. Listening to the waves crash day and night couldn't have better music! We visited St John's one day and snorkeled with the sea turtles. We went on a day boat excursion with Werner and our captain Fernando island hoping the British Isles. The water was so beautiful, just like bath or swimming pool water. We enjoyed the Rum and sun and water and excellent food continuously! What an amazing boat and day! I recommend the chef as he cooked us a fabulous breakfast the morning of our wedding! We were married at Megan bay beach at sunset and our photographer was amazing! Our minister told us our marriage certificate was only good for 1 yr so we have to return to renew it annually! We can't wait! Secret Gardens is truly Paradise and I recommend it for the comfort and enjoyment and memories that it brings! Like I said...Werner your amazing! Thank you so so much!! Memories were created for a lifetime! It was the dream wedding every woman (couple) dreams of! Perfection in every aspect! Paradise.... enough said!"
