About Kim Poss

Originally from the landlocked state of Tennessee, we vacationed in the Virgin Islands every year from 1994 onward. Our kids fell in love with the location and continued to make new friends every trip. Our eldest daughter, Sarah moved here in 2004 and continued her career in Real Estate sales. She likes to say we were her 'worst customers ever' because our standards were so high (we wanted waterfront, pool, walking to beach, masonry). But we did finally find our dream come true in Villa Tryst on the beautiful north-side of St. Thomas. We find the location to be perfect for exploring all of the beauty of the VI but most of all we love gathering with family, cooking a dinner of fresh fish (often bought in Hull Bay) and watching the best sunsets in the world. It doesn't get any better than this. We are happy to share our island jewel with you and your family. Please don’t hesitate to tell us about your island adventures.

Kim Poss purchased this villa in 2007

Why Kim Poss chose USVI/St. Thomas

On family vacations we rented villas all throughout the Virgin Islands from St. John to St. Croix. Though we believe each of the islands has its personal charm, the north-side of St. Thomas is clearly the diamond in the rough we were looking for. The convenience of being able to be in your private pool at your villa within 15 minutes after arrival (with no barge trip) allows for even a long weekend trip to be relaxing. We love the active beach of Hull Bay in that there are always activities to observe from fisherman going out early in the morning to divers swirling with their green lights after dark. The historically French neighborhood surrounding the villa is welcoming yet not at all touristy. You will know as soon as you enter the Hull Bay Hideaway that this is a local’s sort of hang-out. The world-class restaurants of Frenchtown and Charlotte Amalie along with the duty free shopping on Main Street or Yacht Haven Grande are a short drive away. Every visit we seem to discover something new we love about the Virgin Islands.

What makes this villa unique

Honestly, if you didn't want to, you would never have to leave Villa Tryst. It has everything you need for a great vacation. Take a morning dip in the pool, an afternoon snorkel in Hull Bay below and then come back for sunset mango concoctions on the porch. The house is perfectly situated to watch the activity on the beach, the islands in the distance and the yachts that cruise by. We have a collection of board games, books and movies to keep you entertained if perchance you get a late afternoon shower. And don't forget naps with the waves crashing below! If there is something you need for your trip, just ask us, it is likely we have it! We can even have your villa stocked with groceries of your choosing prior to your arrival.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks so much for the wonderful time. This house is AMAZING! Hopefully we can come back and enjoy this beautiful island from this most spectacular setting ever.

Local anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I are longtime residents of St. Thomas and decided to enjoy a little staycation to celebrate our anniversary. Privacy and a pool were our main requirements and Villa Tryst delivered that and more! Enjoying the northwest view of Hull Bay and the Brasses while listening to the waves in complete seclusion was a highlight every day. The villa is more Island comfortable than contemporary elegant which suits the location perfectly. We rented it with just the master bedroom which was fantastic, plenty of room and natural light when you open the shutters. No TV in the bedroom but it's not the kind of place that you think about watching TV. The beach is a short walk away and while we didn't want to do any of the activities it was fun watching boats, snorkelers, kayaks and SUPs cruise by, all of which are available to rent at the beach. If you want the extra privacy make sure to ask if the caretaker's room below will be empty during your stay. All in all this a fantastic place to stay on St. Thomas!

Great home; Great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hull Bay is a bit off the beaten track, but it is great place if you want to get away from the tourist areas and get a real "local" feel. There is a great beach bar/restaurant in short walking distance and the beach is just down the hill. Great beach, snorkeling and watersports. Villa Tryst has a great lay-out, fantastic views and the owners were responsive and friendly..

Amazing View and Place

  • 5 of 5

5 Star overall. Villa Tryst is a great place and very convenient/clean. Very private location but just a few steps from the beach and local watering hole and restaurant, the Hull Bay Hideaway. Can't recommend it enough.

Best Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had an amazing 8 day stay at Villa Tryst! The views off the deck are absolutely stunning! We enjoyed gorgeous sunsets, rainbows & the best spot to drink coffee I could ever imagine! All 3 of the bedrooms were very spacious and we NEVER had to use the air conditioner in any of them....amazing! The sound of the waves and the nice Christmas breezes were way better than I could have imagined. It was heaven on earth! I cooked a large breakfast every morning & had everything in the kitchen I needed. We loved Hull Bay Beach & enjoyed the Hideaway most nights! It was the trip of a lifetime & we will be back as soon & as often as possible! Sarah, the manager was awesome, too! She met us at the rent-a-car place, took us to the grocery store and even hauled our groceries and some of our luggage to the house. She showed us around and made sure we were settled and comfortable. If we ever had a question or needed anything at all, she was super responsive. It was also very nice to be able to use the existing paper products, etc. Thank ya'll for a week we'll never forget! We loved every minute of it!

Vacation Bucket List

  • 5 of 5

What a magical week spent in St. Thomas, Villa Tyrst. The views and ocean front access was perfect. Located right on Hull Bay. So many shells and the snorkeling.... We saw squid, sting ray, all sorts of colorful fish. There is a great island restaurant at the beach. The Villa Tyrst is your home away from home. 3 large bedrooms with full baths, each with a private veranda. Perfect for families or sharing vacation time with friends. Full kitchen, dinning room, living room, washer and dryer and a in ground salt water swimming pool (beach towels provided) that shimmered at night with all the beautiful lighting. Plenty of chairs for lounging in the sun and also a covered area right on the water. This is where we shared breakfast each morning. There were a total of 4 women in our group for 6 nights. Very spacious! One night we hired a sushi chef and had a party! One of my friends Aunt actually lives on the island and she brought over several friends. We also enjoyed grilling by the pool on the large gas grill. This house is a perfect gathering place. I look forward to returning for another stay.
