He have lived in all three islands for 31 years. He chose St. John to be his home as the island optimized what he had always dreamed about living in a tropical island with a beautiful white soft sand beach, tradewind breezes and amazing views. He was one of the contractor to joined and completed Westin hotel resort in St. John and Ritz Carlton in St. Thomas . He had fulfilled his dream by building Mandavilla Properties (Ylang Ylang, Mandavilla Rose, Ginger Thomas, Alexandra Cottage and The Mandavilla) with an amazing views and location.

Ginger Thomas is a fabulous property to rent. Clean, up to date with furnishings, washer and dryer comfortable mattresses and fabulous owners. Jim and Tara take extremely good care of there properties. Great Home , Great Owners.
This is our third time this year that we have been to the island and all of Mandavilla properties are clean and ready to have guest.
Thanks for being Great
Beautiful View - Great Owners!
We love St. John, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property! The owners were accessible and very helpful, and the view from the deck is stunning. Easy access to Cruz Bay and the best beaches. We especially enjoyed having a separate downstairs “suite” separate from our college-age children and their friends.
Excellent villa, great location & view, perfect hosts
We just returned from a 4 night 5 day stay at Ginger Thomas and we're already wishing we stayed longer. Tara & Jim have a great group of properties and Tara makes sure you are well cared for while you are there. This is our second time renting from Mandavilla Properties and we will definitely be back for more. Ginger Thomas has plenty of parking, privacy for both sets of guests which really helps when traveling with friends or family. We chose the downstairs bedroom and had our own little private table & chairs for a great view of Pillsbury Sound, every morning we'd sit out and have our coffee. Our kitchen was large and open with everything we needed to make breakfast or dinner, gas grill for grilling up if you choose, dining area on patio with plunge pool as well. The upper patio with pool has fans to keep you cool and plenty of shade & seating, views are just unreal. Both bedrooms are roomy and comfortable as well. Given the fact that St. John just went through 2 category 5 storms only 6 months ago, you'd not know it looking at how well the property looks. Location is just up the hill from Cruz Bay and you can get to gas, grocery and shops/restaurants all in a few minutes. Tara is great with communication and answering questions, you are left alone but can always reach her if needed. We will be back for sure.
Great spot for one or two couples.
We totally enjoyed our stay at Ginger Thomas. The house was described to us just as we found it. The house was clean as a whistle and the location can't be beat if you what stunning sunsets and a close proximity to Cruz Bay.
Tara the owner was fabulous! If you needed anything or had an issue, she was very accommodating and quick to respond. We did have a bit of an issue with the water pump but she had it repaired immediately.
Me and my wife highly recommend this villa, we thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days here and will be recommending this home to our friends in NJ. Thanks Tara.

Beautiful views and the most comfortable beds we've ever stayed on!
The whole place is wonderful. The outdoor area is perfect for lounging. I liked that we had 2 separate living areas with our own entrances, bathrooms, and tiled showers. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. It is helpful to have a vehicle because of the steep hill, especially with luggage and groceries. We would happily return. Thank you Tara and James.
The view doesn't get any better than this!
We can't say enough about our stay. It's our second year in a row in the same property. We just love everything about Ginger Thomas. The location is perfect and the view is spectacular. We've been coming to St John for many years but have now found where we'll come back to year after year. We left the day Hurricane Irma was hitting the island and were heartbroken for everyone there. We hear the house is intact and can't wait to come back. Tara is a super host and kept us up to date to keep us safe.
THE PROPERTY IS LOCATE WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO DOWNTOWN CRUZ BAY WITH PLENTY OF SHOPPING, RESTAURANTS, ART GALLERY AND BARS.
