About Andy & Louri Lynn
Andy and I have lived in the US Virgin Islands for over 21 years. Andy grew up in Wisconsin and I grew up in Kentucky - we met at the same university and moved to St. Thomas not long after graduation. We both fell in love with the islands and its lifestyle. We are active within the boating community and love spending time on the water.
Andy & Louri Lynn purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Andy & Louri Lynn chose Rosendal
My wife and I knew this was it the moment we stepped onto the porch to see the view. Unbelievable! It is at the end of a road with only 7 houses. It is centrally located to go to the East End, Downtown or Magens. We bought it knowing it would need remodeling, giving us the opportunity to put our own design and needed updates into it. Now we have our dream house! Come share our Caribbean dream.
What makes this Villa unique
Close to everything. Mature landscaping that included avocado, mango, banana, lime, tangerine and coconut trees. A view beyond any we have ever seen. It made it home!

Has the potential to be a really nice place.
The villa is situated in a very nice location overlooking the northern shoreline. There are two large decks with nice patio furniture and a new grill. There is plenty of room inside the villa.
I do however have a few complaints that didn't make our stay enjoyable. There is a serious roach and ant infestation in the villa. We always kept all of our food in the fridge and microwave to keep the critters away but it didn't work. Every evening several large roaches and ants would swarm the kitchen and upper bedroom. They were on the counter tops and the floor. No matter how many we would kill there were always more. I visit St. Thomas on a yearly basis and have never had this problem in other lodgings, Its time for a bug bomb. In addition the upper bed is very hard and you can feel the springs when you lay down. We ended up going to Kmart to buy a foam mattress pad to make the bed somewhat more comfortable. We left it behind so future guests could get a nights sleep.
If the above issues get resolved this would be a great place at a fairly cheap nightly rental rate. I however was very disappointed due to the critter infestation and poor bed condition in the upper bedroom.
We are sorry to hear that your stay had issues. We wish you had communicated them so we would have had an opportunity to make corrections to improve your stay. The house is treated professionally on a monthly basis for pests. We have never had any other complaints. After seeing you briefly on several occasions I would have thought you would have communicated you bedding issue. We purchased high quality brand new beds for the villa and again have never had any complaints but wished you had given us the opportunity to make corrections. Please let us know your cost of the bedding material purchased so we can reimburse you.
Me and the rest of my family stayed in the villa for one week. It was quiet and very peaceful. The view was amazing, we could see the ocean and many small islands. The villa was clean and had everything you could need. There were fans that we used primarily, and also air conditioning. Our children are 10 and 12 and although we were high up, I never worried about their safety on the decks- I would not recommend for smaller children though.
We were given the opportunity to purchase groceries ahead of time, and that went well. Saint Thomas is a lovely place to visit and we would love to come again. Driving on the island, is a bit scary at first.
Anelise: We are very glad you and your family enjoyed our slice of Paradise. And yes driving on the left can be a little difficult to get used to. We look forward to seeing you and your family again next year!
stunning hilltop views overlooking the water and islands
A very comfortable house with most everything you could need for a relaxing visit to St. Thomas. Spacious indoor and outdoor living. Nearby to beaches and town but hidden and secluded from people and the crowds coming off of the cruise ships. Car is an absolute must have as the driveway is very steep, long and at times unpaved. Large outdoor decks for dining or reading. It was a very restful week for our family of 4.
Thank you for your review. We are so glad you had a good time visiting Villa Van Dyke and the island of St. Thomas. We do hope that for future travels you will visit us again. Have a wonderful 2014.

Paradise with a view!
Lovely accommodations, great location, loved the views from the decks. All seemed newly renovated and the layout of the upstairs / downstairs offered privacy for the luxurious 2 bd/ 2 bath apartment. We loved having a fully-equipped kitchen to have breakfast and lunch at the cottage. If you don't feel like cooking, I think meals can be ordered in or prepared in-house by a chef! This was extra $, so we opted to head out to nearby restaurants but nice to know it's an option! OOOH! La! La! Luxury and leisure at a great price! We had a fabulous time. So close to everything, yet wonderful privacy and peace.
We are so glad that you had a wonderful time at Villa Van Dyke. Hope you can return soon.
The Ultimate Paradise!!!
I just got back from a week's stay with some girlfriends at Villa Van Dyke, and what can I say but WOW!!! The accomodations were wonderful! The villa was completely renovated with a full kitchen, breakfast area, 2 bedrooms with renovated baths, and a great room with absolutely amazing views!!! One of my favorite things to do was to sit outside on the two decks and take in all of the natural beauty surrounding the villa. Not only were the views of the islands were amazing, but the villa was surrounded by coconut trees, avacodo trees, banana trees, and papaya trees. The owners of the villa were incredibly helpful as well. They have lived on the island for over twenty years, so they were a wealth of knowledge in helping us decide what to do, where to go, and how to get there! Their hospitality as well as the amazing accomodations and incredible views made this trip one to remember!! I highly recommend Villa Van Dyke, and I will definitely be back!!
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so glad that you had such a great time at Villa Van Dyke.

Fabulous Everything! Views! Location! Comfort!
We hopped over for a fun girls weekend from St.Croix and this is
the perfect place to stay! Spacious and comfortable with a fantastic deck
with views galore. Very private but minutes to town. Everything you need!
We will be telling all our friends!
Centrally located overlooking ocean with US/British islands. Great privacy on cul de sac type road yet centrally located to numerous bars, restaurants and downtown shopping within minutes.
