Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I recently got back from staying at "On The Rocks" I can't put into words how wonderful this home really is. It has the most gorgeous views and top of the line appliances and decor. And, Cindie was such a wonderful host. She answered so many helpful questions about St. Thomas prior to our flight and made herself available while we were on the island in case we needed a thing ( which, we did not) I am counting down until we can return and we wouldn't stay anywhere else"

Thanks again for everything,

Wonderful experience and villa!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took our first trip to St Thomas and On the Rocks was absolutely perfect for what we were looking for. Our lives are hectic enough that a vacation means getting away and enjoying the peace and quiet while relaxing and this may be the best place we have ever stayed for that. Often times the photos make a villa look better online than it does in person but the exact opposite was true here - it actually is as beautiful as you see. The entire open air design and views over the water have to be some of the best in the Caribbean. By visiting in early March we were able to keep all the doors in the home open through the night (as the owners recommend) and the gentle sea breeze kept the few mosquitoes around at bay.

For one day we went to Magens Bay which is only a few minutes away and enjoyed the sand and the mega yachts that park themselves for the day. We did head down to red Hook for a quick visit for dinner one evening but actually preferred getting some groceries there and cooking for ourselves since the kitchen is so well equipped.

If you are looking for bar hopping and late nights then this may not be the place for you as traveling on the island's narrow hilly roads on the wrong side takes quite a bit of attention. If that's what you are looking for then staying down in Red Hook is the right way to go. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a romantic getaway for relaxing peace and quiet with spectacular views then On the Rocks is perfection. To put it another way, we tend to love to explore and visit new places every time we come to the Caribbean but this is the first time we've agreed that we'll be coming back and it will be just to stay in this Villa again.

We decided to take a 7 day trip to St Thomas and wanted a quiet, relaxed environment and started researching villas, once we saw On The Rocks I knew it would be perfect, and then extended our stay to 10. The owners were more than accommodating! This was the best side of the island, just rent a car! It's going to be difficult to stay somewhere else as the villa was PERFECT! We had a little visitor( land crab) and the manager sent someone over quickly to remove him..the response was quick with Cindie the manager anytime I needed a recommendation- so read the guest book the day you arrive- a lot of great recommendations! 82 and sunny for 10 days- I usually don't repeat stays when traveling but this is going to be extremely difficult to find something better than On The Rocks!

My husband and I stayed at "On the Rocks" from 2/13/17 - 2/18/17 for our 20th Anniversary! This villa is everything I expected and more!! It's even more beautiful than the pictures. We could not have asked Cindie to be more helpful since this was our first trip to St. Thomas. Every recommendation she provided to us was AWESOME! We are already talking about planning our next trip. You will NOT be disappointed with this Villa!!

This home is exquisite with its ocean front breezes, sounds of waves crashing, spectacular views and indoor outdoor living. The home is beautifully furnished and decorated and fully stocked with everything you will ever need. This is our first of many Home Away adventures!

a Quaint-Secluded Romantic Property, perfect to 'rekindle' why you fell in Love Again!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time on St. Thomas and we could not have picked a better property. 'On-the-Rocks' (OTR) is in an ideal location for peace and quiet. We've been together over 30 years and the romantic opportunities are abundant at OTR. The windward breezes are perfect but the view is what is truly spectacular! Hearing the waves crash upon the rocks is priceless. Upon arrival, the property manager Cindie had OTR playing relaxing jazz music on the Bose System, she had the islands Cruzan Rum ready for an arrival cocktail. We had no issues during our stay except we had to come home. Cindie checked in with us to make sure everything was in order and let us know if we needed anything to contact her. Cindie has put together a very helpful book with lots of great information (grocery shopping, driving directions, etc).

We love this property so much we started making arrangements to visit again later this year, hopefully for a much longer stay. We would highly recommend this property, you won't want to leave. Plan an extra day or two if possible, you will not regret it!

Couple's Paradise

My husband & I spent 10 days at "On the Rocks" for our 25th anniversary. I tend to research to a fault and poured over our options for a long time before narrowing our choice to 2 villas. We ultimately chose this one because I wanted to be able to hear the ocean. We made the perfect choice. The view from virtually every part of the villa is breathtaking! The pool was cool and refreshing. Sleeping with the doors open and listening to the ocean is a dream come true for me. The villa has everything you need to make you feel at home. I woke almost every morning, made coffee and sat on the deck watching the sunrise. There are many restaurants very close by and I loved spending time at Magen's Bay as I'm a beach bum. It was wonderful to be able to be shaded by trees when we needed so we didn't burn. Our favorite place to eat was The Grille at Mahogany Run. The food was always on point and not as pricey as you'd expect on an island. Once we were home, I took the knowledge I had from our vacation and looked to book a villa knowing what I know now. I came to the conclusion that I would go right back to this place. Cindie helped us very quickly whenever we had a question or concern. We're already squeezing our pennies to try to go back next year. We typically take a trip once every 5 years but after this trip, we can't wait that long to return!
