Perfect location and perfect vacation!

Cliffhanger, was a wonderful, beautiful and very accommodating home. We did not want our trip to end. We look forward to our next vacation to St Thomas and we plan on staying at the Cliffhanger.

Jaw Dropping Views in Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Cliffhanger truly is the most beautiful place I have ever been in my life. My family and I could not have been more comfortable and spoiled in this gorgeous spot. Even while on the stunning island of Saint Thomas, it was difficult to leave every day with an oceanfront view, hammocks, cozy lounge chairs, warm pool, and hot tub right outside of the front door! We were given wonderful recommendations of places to eat and spots to check out from the lovely couple that escorted us from the airport to Cliffhanger. The outdoor cottage with a bathroom built around giant rocks was my favorite place to be. My Mom and I woke up every morning to go on a walk to the gate and back. We took hundreds of pictures of all the beautiful plants we saw along the way, as well as the views of the ocean and other islands. The property felt so private and peaceful, my family and I would definitely love to return one day!

Absolutely Stunning

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Cliffhanger and won't be the last! There is nothing not to like about this house and all it's amenities. The view is absolutely stunning, the house is perfect for a large family or group of friends. Go the grocery store and stock up, because you have to make yourself leave the house, but when you do the beauty of Megan's Bay is a 5 minute drive or Mahogany Run Golf Course, the only golf course on St Thomas, is less than 10 minutes away. The drive to the restaurants, shopping or ferry dock is easy from Cliffhanger and you can enjoy a day on St John or any of the surrounding islands and when you return, the pool, hottub and the serenity of Cliffhanger awaits you!

Perfect Fit

  • 5 of 5

For us this was a perfect fit of a vacation home. With 4 kids from ages 7-16 years old, everyone had plenty of elbow room. We loved the peacefulness and seclusion of the location. The view is just spectacular. Each day we had an easy morning with everyone sleeping in as needed before heading out to enjoy the islands. The home is lovely and adequately maintained. We were very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Had a great time and the views from cliffhanger were spectacular! Some glitches but nothing major.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and the accommodations were nice. The kitchen was not ver clean and required some work. The bedrooms were great and beds were very comfortable. We would suggest the guest book be updated. Recommend the Cup and Cork for breakfast items and also as a convenience store! The Griile at Mahogany Run had great food and is also close.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and writing a review. I apologize that there may have been something amiss in the kitchen when you arrived (my Villa Managers were not informed of this when they checked in with your group or they would have jumped on it). I'm glad you enjoyed the bedrooms and found beds comfortable. Totally agree about Cup and Cork/Mahogany Run Grill.... very convenient and good quality- We have them both included in the emailed "Recommendations and Tips" sent to all of our guests. We will update the guest book this Spring, as there is a lot of turn over in STT of restaurants and things definitely change quickly on the rock. Thanks again for staying Cliffhanger! Best, Larry

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay. Everything was as described and pictured if not better, The deck was probably the most amazing. We danced and enjoyed the night air, Every bedroom has an ocean view. We had 7 adults and never had an issue with hot water. Close to Meagan's bay and about 20 minutes to anything. Great wine selection at Foodcenter by Red Hook. Easy booking and answered all of our questions. It is very secluded. Would recommend. Visit Iggies, (beach bar) Tap and Still )great burgers), Melt (mexican fun and games)
