  • Unique Island Living

    "We stayed here during Christmas week 2014. An escort met us at the airport at the appointed time and guided us to the villa. Peterborg is a very nice quiet area. We enjoyed walking the neighborhood and out to the Point. What a beautiful view! The villa is about 20 minutes from Red Hook. Once we got use to driving island style it wasn't bad. The roads are steep and the driveway does require a two point turn but the rental minivan got the job done. The villa is as pictured. It was pleasant to leave the screen doors open and listen to the water. We relaxed in the hammock each day. It was fun to watch the hummingbirds and butterflies flutter in the bushes. We did not cook in the villa but the kitchen seemed to be well stocked. We did use the snorkel equipment. It was nice to not have to rent gear for the week. Having beach towels and a cooler provided were also appreciated. The sun deck was most pleasant with an unobstructed view of the Bay. The villa is stocked with a few board games, DVDs, lots of books and CDs. As another reviewer mentioned, there is another building that is a part of the complex but not included in the rental. This unit does have a view of the rental's outdoor deck and pool area. It was empty during our stay. If renting again, I would inquire if this building would be occupied. The owner responded to email and phone calls quickly and answered all our questions. There are two reasons I did not rate the property five stars. The lower bedroom smelled a bit musty. There was a dehumidifier in the room but it was broken. Running the AC helped. Also, there are motion sensor lights on the lower level that did not always operate. It was difficult to navigate the steps in the dark. Overall, this villa is a great value. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again."

  • 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!"

  • Blue Sky was perfect for our family and quality time together

    "This Villa was well furnished, tasteful, and perfect in providing opportunity to be together as a family while providing privacy which we all enjoyed. Shawna has done an excellent job of preparing and sharing a wonderful home with all the amenities that make the stay comfortable. The view and convenience of this villa are perfect for a family vacation. We hope to return and will recommend to other family and friends. Thank you Shawna and Debi. Megan's Bay and the Beach were wonderful."

  • 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!"
