About Joan deLugo

After visiting family and friends in St. Thomas for many years I purchased The Villa Blue Sky in 1997. After an extensive renovation I offer the property for vacation rental in 2006 and have been sharing it ever since.

Joan deLugo purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Joan deLugo chose USVI/St. Thomas

I love St. Thomas because it is very relaxing but there is lots to see and do if you want to. My property is in one of the best locations for a visitor vacationing in the Virgin Islands, truly close to where you want to be.

comfortable, clean, and enjoyable

Our second stay in as many years and we look forward to staying there again next year. Great location. Faces north (sort of) so no early am sun on the porch. Great place for coffee and relaxing in the am. Appreciated the carryable (is that a word?) beach chairs and extra towels. Nice value for the price.

great location and view

  • 5 of 5

Such a great location. Rental cars were not available for the first week we were here,but we figured out we were so close to everything we just walked or took a safari or cab! Much cheaper then a rental car and more fun.Joanie and her husband are super friendly and very informative . And across the street if needed. Great place to stay would definitely recommend !!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. From coffee and chocolate truffles on the porch in the morning to relaxing at night, it was great. Everything was as advertised and more. Very comfortable and relaxing, and with just the right touch of at home feeling. Couldn't have asked for a better location.

Pefect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Castaway was such a great place to stay... roughly a mile away from Red Hook (almost a walk),a 7 min walk down to secret harbor which was one of the most calm and quiet beaches on St. Thomas. The Cruz Beach Grill at Secret Harbor has amazing food - You must try the Ahi Nachos suggested by Joanie when I arrived! Beautiful view of Red Hook Harbor which host a handful of restaurants and the ferry to St. John. Quiet neighborhood, a mix of local homes and vacation homes. The one bedroom lower unit of the property is in good condition, very typical island home set up. All the amenities where there if needed, beach towels, beach chairs, Ipod stereo hookup, plenty of towels, plenty of dishware. There is a constant ocean breeze coming into the front porch that lets you keep the windows open all day long. Value for money this is a great place to stay if you don't want to break the bank and in a good central hub to drive to various places on the island (20 min to Megans Bay, 2 min to Red Hook, 30-45 o the Airport and Charlotte Amalie..Thank you again Joanie for great hospitality we will defiantly look you up again and pass your homes along to friends!

Owner's Response: Elliot and Kelli, We are so glad that you enjoyed Castaway! You are making me want those Ahi Nachos at the Cruzan Sunset Grille at Secret Harbor!! The best place for sunset on the island.
