About Stuart Scott

My wife and I moved down to St Thomas back in 2004 to escape Boston winters and never looked back. People thought we were crazy giving up the corporate lifestyle and now we are living the Caribbean dream 11 years and counting now with our 2 kids who were both born here on St Thomas.

Stuart Scott purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Stuart Scott chose Northside

We purchased this newly built home back in 2012 which came with a cottage that was perfect for rentals and for our frequent visiting friends and family. We are at the end of a 1/4 mile dead end road that only has 1 other house on it. We are in a quiet rural area with almost no neighbors and amazing views of the ocean. Being newly built everything is in pristine condition with all modern amenities which is hard to find outside of the major hotels and huge villas.

If you are looking for tranquility, privacy, off the beaten path experience, local Caribbean and non touristy vacation you have come to the right spot. I will tell you about white sand beaches you can hike down to and during the week be almost guaranteed you will be the only ones there. You will see beaches where you can pull your car up on the sand, have a bonfire as you watch the sun set into the ocean. Or just hang around the cottage and watch the waves crash on the beach below as you read a book or re-connect with your significant other.

If you come during the right season help yourself to the mangos, papayas, and coconuts that are readily available on the property.

What makes this cottage unique

If you want to experience true Caribbean living without sacrificing the creature comforts, then you have found your new island home. Rent by the day. week or month. We are here to make sure your experience in the Virgin Islands is nothing short of extraordinary.

A little slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Island Bliss is a wonderful, peaceful getaway! Stu provided great directions to the cottage. Everything we needed was there! The cottage was clean, the kitchen was well stocked and the view was amazing! Stu was available as needed and had great suggestions for restaurants and beaches! The property is in a very remote part of the island. We rented a 4 wheel drive jeep which was perfect!

Legitimately Impressed

  • 5 of 5

For anyone not looking for the traditional resort experience, this is perfect. From the actual experience driving up (do yourself a favor and rent a Jeep from Paradise Rental), to the house itself or our viee from the deck, sold. Wanted to move there, all I needed in life going forward. Literally one con, ants. Wipe down counter and don't leave out food, no ants to be seen. Problem solved.

In addition to an amazing view, phenominal shower and comfortable king bed, this condo provides an amazing amount of privacy on an overcrowded island with the sole exception of the neighboring host. However, after your first conversation with the hosts, you will absolutely be thrilled to have them at your disposal to provide recommendations (paradise rental was one) and any connections to activities or fresh fish (literally best/freshest fish (wahoo) we had while visiting). Blown away by the service they provided for no additional cost.

In full disclosure, this is my first review of any store restaurant or hotel and I did this solely because I read previous reviews on this site for all the properties that I considered. Ive stayed at other properties before all over. Ive been impressed before but never to the point of feeling the need of sharing it with the world.

So for what it's worth, this place is as good as it says and I can not say enough how appreciative my girlfriend and I are to have had the opportunity to enjoy this condo.

Thanks again!

Our stay at Island Bliss exceeded our needs!

  • 5 of 5

Island Bliss is the exact feeling you get when you arrive! The views are beyond anything we have ever seen. We watched the waves, boats and a few storms move through! The villa itself has everything you could ask for...including the best shower ever! Make sure you go to the beaches on he north side. Island Bliss made it easy to travel all over St. Thomas. Definitely a place t return to in the future!! Thanks for the hospitality!!!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our vacation in St. Thomas and couldn't be more happy with cottage. The pictures do not do the view justice. Stuart was always more than willing to give suggestions for places to go and beaches to see. We visited many beaches while there and highly recommend Magens Bay for the view and the bar. Trunk Bay on St. Johns if you want to snorkel and Brewers Bay for the sea turtles. All in all it was a great experience and we would return in a heartbeat if we could.
