  • Paradise Found!

    "Views were stunningly beautiful. Can't say enough about the views, they almost do not seem real. Pool was a nice plus after a long day of exploring! My family used the pool quite a lot and really enjoyed it. The house is super cute and nicely decorated with comfortable furniture and stocked with everything you could need or want. The owner and caretaker (Cheryl and Robin) were super responsive and provided sufficient information about the house and things to do on the islands. The location is great and accessible to all areas of the island. Very safe and nice neighborhood. We appreciated Robin meeting us at the airport and guiding us to the house and going over everything! As they say in the description though, this house does not have central air and it does get very hot/humid and somewhat uncomfortable in the main living areas. However, the bedrooms are very comfortable and cool as there are AC units in those. As for St. Thomas itself, we ate at Northside Bistro, Mahogany Grille, Amalia Cafe, Glady's, Sibs, and Island Time Pub. Northside Bistro is hands down the best food I have ever eaten...anywhere. It has a beautiful view, outstanding service, and tasty food! Keep in mind, that is does not have AC, but is a screened in porch and quite nice at night with the breezes. Mahogany Grille is the best for steaks and a cozy atmosphere. Glady's is the best spot for lunch downtown!! Amazing food and service. Amalia Cafe was also very nice, but we preferred Glady's. Sibs was more a bar atmosphere, and I highly do not recommend for lunch or dinner. Tables were dirty and there were cats everywhere. But if you want a beer, sure. Plus it's close to the house. Island Time Pub in the Red Hook area has the best pizza! Definitely stop by Udder Delight on the way to Magen's Bay for some delicious milkshakes. Beaches we visited that were all great were Magen's Bay, Sapphire Beach, Coki Beach. I don't know how you could go wrong with any of the beaches on either island, though. We visited St. John's for one day, and wish we spent more time there. Super beautiful, calm, and very clean island. We shopped at Mongoose Junction, which is in my opinion the best shopping area in general. Hawksnest Beach, Cinnamon and Maho were all very nice beaches on St. John. I hear Coral Bay is the best spot for snorkeling, so we'll have to try that next time. All in all, this was top 3 best vacations we have ever had and would highly recommend the islands and staying at High Blue Heaven."

  • Your search ends here! This house is amazing.

    "My family of four (including 13- and 9-year olds) enjoyed a blissful week-long stay at Villa Papillon. Hosts Linda and Mike are very friendly and informative, and happy to help with advice and recommendations. They are close by, so you don't have to worry about inattentive or nonexistent homeowners not returning phone calls. But they will offer you your privacy. Linda cheerfully met us at a supermarket after we stocked up on supplies, and drove us through the twists and turns (and inclines!) of the roads on the mountains of St. Thomas. The gorgeous home is located in a gated community in Peterborg, which is on the peninsula that encloses Magen's Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world (5 minutes away - no exaggeration). She and Mike have maintained the property nicely: the beauty of the views can not be overstated. The home is just like the pictures, perhaps even more beautiful because you cannot appreciate the comfortable layout in the photos. The home is remote and peaceful, and we didn't hear or even see neighbors unless we took out the binoculars. We grilled every day while still being able to be together in the pool/hot tub area on deck. We found a well-stocked kitchen with top of the line appliances. Beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms, though a bit dated, were clean and very functional with ample storage. The home is decorated like a real home, not like a soulless rental. We went to Magen's Bay almost every day (we swam with a giant turtle there), but also made trips to Sapphire and Coki bays for better snorkeling. Be aware: parking is sketchy at Coki, and the surrounding areas are sort of rundown. But fish and coral are plentiful. When we return to USVI, we will stay here again. We didn't even have to worry about mosquitos- the gentle breezes keep them away. Thanks LInda and Mike for a wonderful week!"

  • Heaven on Earth!

    "By far the most amazing property that we have stayed at...The villa combined with the private beach is absolutely to die for. We went with our two small children, aged 6 and 9, who absolutely loved everything that the villa had to offer. From snorkeling to finding conch shells and sand dollars right outside of the villa's beach access, to wading down to Magen's Bay, and venturing to other small beaches. It was great for kids to see sharks, sea turtles, stingrays, and so many varieties of small fish! We also took a short drive to the end of the Peterborg peninsula, where the kids were able to scale rocks, and found an amazing lagoon. You have to visit the dairy nearby for milkshakes (the alcoholic ones are good also)! We would absolutely recommend this place for families, and have to so many of our friends and family! We will definitely be coming back to Villa Eau Claire in the future! Thank you for the amazing memories!!! :)"
