"I stayed in the Mango Room at Villa Marbella in mid September and had a fantastic time! Gunner and Leah are the best people you could ask for and the dogs are fun too. I was visiting my teenage daughter and really just need a small room that was safe and clean and the Mango room at Villa Marbella was perfect. The nightly rate was extremely reasonable and helped keep my trip affordable. The pictures of the room are exactly what you get – small but super cozy, safe, clean, everything you need. In fact we were the only people there for the last 4 days of my stay and Leah generously offered to move us to a larger room (at no charge by the way) and my daughter said no, she preferred the Mango room since it was cozier.
The room has a dorm-sized fridge, microwave and a hot plate type appliance, suitable for a single pan. Pans, silverware and cups were provided as was a Keurig and coffee. We had oatmeal, cereal, and sandwiches during the day and usually grabbed something out in the evening.
The pool was lovely and the grounds as well. We rented a jeep from them; which was a great decision. I arrived late in the evening and having them pick me up as a service included with car rental, was a great decision on my part. The roads are pretty steep and twisting and trying to find my way in the dark might have been tricky. Having them pick me up made it super easy.
I just can’t say enough about Gunner and Leah and their staff, Jack, Lexi and Jager the dogs and the Villa Marbella experience. As one last anecdote, the day I was leaving I logged into my bank account and noticed that a local grocery store had charge me $111.00 when my bill was actually $11 (big difference!) I asked Gunner about it and he was immediately on the phone with the store owner and took care of everything securing me accredit of the $100 overcharge. It was all arranged before my plane even landed back in the US. Thank you!"

FABULOUS STAY!! You cannot go wrong with this condo rental!
"Our first visit to U.S. Virgin Islands for a wedding and could not be more satisfied and pleased with our choice of accommodations here at Sue & Joe Giangarra's Watergate Villas East condo in Bolongo Bay!! Sue was just super with her prompt and courteous responses to email inquiries and securing the condo as well as her wealth of information and knowledge about the islands for our stay. Price CANNOT be beat anywhere on the islands for the location, living space, furnishings, and comfort of this condo!! For a family stay with 2 bedrooms/2 baths, kitchen and living areas as well as views and central location at Bolongo Bay, I and my family will definitely stay here again and again! Iggies is a great place for casual beach dining and the live music is just top notch! We rented a car for our week long stay and that was best for us, but if you don't it is very easy to get taxi service. The amenities provided by Sue and Joe in the condo CANNOT be matched by any hotel or other condos at a fantastic price. I just cannot say enough superlatives about how much we enjoyed our stay. We highly recommend Magens Bay, Coki Beach, Coral World (go on day when no more than one cruise ship is in port), Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay (St. Johns, rent a car and do r/t car ferry for a day...or 2!) and you must do a half or full day snorkel charter, we did two; The Cat VI (Marriot Frenchmans Reef) to Buck Island/Watermelon Cay National Wildlife Refuge for fantastic turtle snorkeling and we also did full day on New Horizon's and Breakaway Charters out of Red Hook to Christmas Cove and Honeymoon Beach (Water Island), both were well worth it. Thank you Sue and Joe for providing such a great place to anchor our first stay in St Thomas and you have made us a family of life long fans and return guest visitors to the USVI!"

"The title of this review sums up our feelings. We thought we did a good job of researching this property, but apparently, we didnt!! I was actually NICER THAN WE EXPECTED!! Nicely situated away from the busyness of St. Charles in a quiet bay with little vehicle or boat traffic. Great views, close to the pool and three nice restaurants. The unit was well equipped. If we were to go back to St Thomas, we definately try to rent this unit again.....without a doubt!! Oh, did I mention that Sue was grreat to work with regarding the business part of the process. Thanks, Sue!"

"The condo was fantastic! We traveled with our two kids (ages 11-12) and we all thought it was the best vacation ever. We spent evenings relaxing on the balcony sipping blended drinks, watching the kids playing in the pool below, and enjoying the fantastic view of the ocean. We also booked affordable snorkeling and sailing trips with the local hotels. Clean, every amenity we needed, and close to restaurants when we didn't want to cook. Communication with the owner and family was perfect. I wish we could return every year."
