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,

Words and Pictures Will Never Do Justice...

  • 5 of 5

We were beyond blessed to have been able to stay at On the Rocks for our honeymoon in May 2017. What we were treated to was beyond anything we could have hoped for or imagined. From the moment we arrived our breath was taken away - the views, the entire house, pool... just everything! We met the amazing neighbors and had a chance to explore the entire island while we were there, but nothing came close to just being in the house, sitting out on the decks, lounging by the time I don't think we will leave the house! :) This was a dream come true for my husband and I, and can't wait to come back for our anniversary! If you are looking for a romantic, secluded, and BEAUTIFUL place, there is literally no better choice than On the Rocks! xoxo

Perfect location for a wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place if you want to be away from it all, don't mind driving yourself, and don't need to be waited on. If you are looking to walk out your door and be on the beach, or need room service and daily linen changes - this is NOT the place for you. We drove everywhere, grilled our dinner 5 nights, and had our morning coffee looking out over the water - beautiful. The breeze was wonderful - but there are bugs - so be prepared. The "starter" eggs, muffins, coffee and rum were a really nice way to ease into vacation. The view is great, the pool is nice after a day running around the island. Note: you take out your own trash, and there are no laundry facilities. My wife and I rate St. Thomas/St. John and "On The Rocks" as one of our best vacation choices in 25 plus years.

Most amazing vacation ever.. On the rocks was exactly as advertised.. Such a beautiful sleep every night with the waves crashing on the rocks. Cindie was incredible from the bottle of rum left for us to ensuring that our stay was perfect.. can't wait to get back.

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!!
