"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."

"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!"

"We had a wonderful time on our 3 week vacation at this property. The views were breath taking, even more beautiful in person than what shows in the photos. The location of the property was perfect for us as it is a quiet area of the island, and the gated security made us feel very safe. The condo was clean, nicely decorated, and well stocked to allow for cooking our own meals, and had a private grill. The large supply of beach towels was really nice to have as we spent our days at the beaches on St Thomas and St Johns. All of the beaches were just beautiful but snorkeling was best at Coki beach, Secret Harbor, Salt Pond bay, and Water Lemon Cay. We saw octopus, sting rays, and Eagle rays besides lots of pretty fish and coral. Our favorite restaurants were The Green House downtown, Cup & Cork near our condo, and Simply Italian on the same property as Cup & Cork. I would definitely stay here again if we come back to USVI."

"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."
