"We just arrived home from our 6 night stay at Whispering Palms, and are already looking forward to going back. I can't say enough good things about the rental-clean, beautiful views,spacious, and centrally located (15 minute drive to either town or Red Hook). Joanne met us 5 minutes from the airport, making the trip back to the cottage easy for someone new to the area. She also gives great recommendations, and was always available to reach out to if help was needed. Great place for a wonderful trip."

"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!"

"In our personal opinion, home/villa rental is, hands-down, the best (only!) way to travel/vacation!!! And High Blue Heaven was the perfect house/villa rental!!!
The pictures hardly due the view justice, the home was meticulously cleaned, and beautifully decorated. The kitchen/bathrooms are outstanding as well (although no pictures, trust me, they are excellent!)
We rented this house along with another couple -- four total adults. The pool is outstanding, they do offer a heater (we did not utilize this as we traveled in August) but would have been in the pool more at night if we had chosen to rent the heater :) (it was so incredibly refreshing during the day though!) Just something to consider for next time! :) :)
The sheets, towels, bath robes are all outstanding. Snorkel gear was more than adequate.
Robin, the property manager, was so easily accessible by text/email -- and was a good source of information.
In general, driving in St. Thomas is a little crazy (on the left, lots of "switchbacks") but you adjust quickly and the locals really are understanding :) We rented a Ford Fusion and it managed just fine (and we drove ALL around the island); but we would probably upgrade and go for a Jeep next time mainly just for peace of mind!!! :) :) We even took our car via the car ferry over to St. John (which you should do, its actually cheaper to take the car ferry with four adults than to take the passenger ferry!).
The home is conveniently located -- we really visited most of the island....and HBH is incredibly close to the golf course as well!!! :) :)
We would highly recommend vacationing on St. Thomas and staying in THIS house! :) :)"
