  • Beautiful view, comfortable home

    "There were six of us, 2 seniors, 2 40's and 7 and 5 year old boys. This home had very few steps, which is saying something since it is on a hill. It is very quiet and has a wonderful breeze all the time. The kitchen is very complete. The owners provide beach chairs, towels and snorkel gear. It is convenient to Red Hook Restaurants and several beaches on the east end."

  • We felt like genuine St. Thomians with our own home on the mountain and a truly fabulous view.

    "My husband and I loved our time at Whispering Palms Cottage. We felt like genuine St. Thomians with our own home on the mountain and a truly fabulous view. The wonderful thing about staying at the Cottage on the hills of the North Side is that you are on your own, but you have competent and trustworthy support and guidance nearby from the cottage owners Joanne and Ken. Staying at the Cottage felt safe, private and relaxing and we enjoyed having the comforts of home such as a comfortable and clean bed, fresh linens, clean bathroom and a well appointed clean kitchen. We felt the furnishings were of nice quality and the seating provided and lighting were very nicely placed both indoors and out. Because we rented a Jeep from Discount Car Rental we had the freedom to come and go as we pleased and experience what it was like to actually live and drive on island. We drove all over exploring the island to see what there was to see, such as glorious ocean vistas, residences both extravagant and simple and along the way stopped to visit all the must-see tourist destinations and beaches. We grocery shopped, cooked and had a great home base to head out on our daily adventures from. Top tips for a good time: When Joanne makes a recommendation such as the eating at Sibs on The Mountain, she's speaking with years of experience, so take her good advice. We suggest you definitely pack, and carry with you at all times, sunscreen and bug spray, stay hydrated and remember to always be polite to strangers. Remember to always drive on the left (even when you’re pulling into a parking lot) and adopt the courteous local habit of pausing to letting people into traffic. When you take the car ferry to/from St. John (which is an absolute must do because it’s so great over there) inquire about the schedule for the day, and don’t assume you can catch the last ferry of the day in the last 15 minutes prior to departure to head back to St. Thomas because you might not get a spot and you will be stranded on St. John for the night and miss out on sleeping in your own bed (at the Cottage). Also you don’t have to use the same ferry company over and back, but you will spend more for 2 one way tickets rather than 1 round trip. Overall, relax and have fun on your vacation, you earned it!"

  • Mostly Wonderful, Some Not-so-wonderful

    "I've been trying to think about how to review this condo, and I think a list of pros and cons might be easiest: Pros: The view - amazing. From the back veranda, you could see some gorgeous water, as well as St. John (if you walked a few feet down the beach). The beach - quiet and beautiful; at times, it felt like we had the entire beach to ourselves, which was cool. Very clean and maintained. The decor - very modern, updated, trendy. The cabana bar - lordy, those women could make some rum punch. I mean, one would do ya just fine. Some were working on island time, but they made up for it with that rum pour. The critters - my hubby and I really enjoyed the iguanas and little lizards and hermit crabs, as well as some cute little leopard-print ducks. We're big animal lovers, so it was neat to see some new faces. Cons: I think that the condo itself (and its furniture and fixtures) could stand a once-over and here's why: Within an hour of arriving, I found myself locked in the bathroom. My husband used the bathroom before me and said the door didn't shut completely, so it swung open mid-stream, shall we say. Well, I'm not so brilliant, so I gave the door a firm shove when I went in (I didn't know about his door experience yet) and... it stuck. I believe the pin that goes from the knob into the door frame itself jammed up or broke completely. I had to remove the doorknob from the inside with a knife and a screwdriver that the very nice maintenance man passed me under the door. We spent the remainder of our honeymoon without a bathroom doorknob. I'll just say - it sucked. Could have been much worse, but still sucked. My hubby, who weighs all of 165 lbs, was sitting in a wooden chair on the back patio area a couple nights before we left and it actually split apart and dumped him onto the ground. It looks like it's happened before because there was already a small wooden piece of the back missing. We were able to fit the pegs back together and it was intact again, although we didn't sit in it for the remainder of our trip. Bottom line, the view and beach is fantastic but I think this place really needs some routine maintenance. As it stood, with the bathroom and the chair incident, it rates a solid 'good'. I would definitely consider returning, but suggest the owners visit first and make a few improvements."

  • Great Condo in the Best Part of St Thomas

    "My family of 4 stayed in the condo for a week and we truly enjoyed our stay. The manager will contact you with the details prior to your trip. GPS does not pick up the entire address, you would need to enter Smith Bay Rd, once you're on Smith Bay, just keep going until you see the Resort sign. The resort overall is well kept and it is still work in progress. There is security staff on patrol at night. The condo itself is beautiful and you can't get enough of sitting in the balcony. Since we had 2 kids we baby proofed the condo and put many items in the closet. The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom is great, there is everything you need in the kitchen and the fridge is fully stocked with condiments. Wifi internet is great and the owners have put activities brochures and recommendations in a small desk. During our week stay, we only turned the AC on two nights. The other nights we kept the doors open and the trade winds keep us cool the entire time. I noticed there are no ants in the apartment at all, which is rare in the Caribbean. Housekeeping does a great job at keeping the condo clean. The small Sugar beach by the resort would do if you don't feel like driving to other beaches. It is sandy once you pass the small rocks on the edge. If you're going to cross to St John from Red Hook, I recommended taking the 9am ferry. Red Hook is only a 5 minutes drive from the property. Also you won't go wrong with any restaurant in Red Hook. Maybe for couples a car is not needed, but for families with kids, you definitely need a car. I highly recommend this condo."

USVI/St. Thomas Travel Tips

St. Thomas Resorts Offer Beautiful Views and Plenty of Sights

St. Thomas is a beautiful island found in the midst of the Caribbean ocean, where many mainland residents have chosen to relocate and begin their new lives in this area. St. Thomas resorts allow visitors to marry on the beach, nap next to the beautiful turquoise ocean, and even explore the local rainforests and town shops.

Relax at St. Thomas Resorts

If you have never stayed in St. Thomas rentals before, you’ll immediately be astounded by the sugar-white sands and clear, turquoise waters characteristic of the island’s beaches. Feel free to nap outside Caribbean resorts and simply lounge at your leisure when not planning a day full of adventurous activities.

St. Thomas Rentals Are Ideal for Destination Weddings

St. Thomas resorts are quite popular for anyone wanting to get married on the beach, as ideal photo opportunities and great weather are common on the island. Couples may choose to reserve several St. Thomas rentals for attendants, guests and family members who will share in the celebration. Caribbean resorts are also great locations for renewing your vows or simply staying during your entire honeymoon too.
