About Bob & Lena Marshall

Bob Marshall started his first business at the very young age of 13, propagating and growing nursery plants in his parents backyard. He supported himself through high school and a couple of years of college operating a small landscape construction business. At the age of 20 Bob expanded into the hot tub and spa business and after over 30 years has achieved an expert status in hot tub and spa sales and service. "Spa Bob", as some his customers call him, works 7 days a week, with the exception of 3 weeks a year when he and his wife Lena escape to different exotic locations. Evidence of this is noted in Bob's wardrobe. He will usually be seen sporting one of many T-shirts purchased during his extensive travels.

In 2014 they took their passion for exotic locations to a new level and purchased a 6 bedroom, 4-1/2 bath vacation Villa in beautiful St Thomas USVI, thus expanding their business into the vacation rental industry.

Bob's wife Lena joined him in the business in January of 2012, after retiring from 8 years as an HR and Accounting Manager. Bob and Lena's main goal is nothing less than EXCELLENT customer service and satisfaction!

Bob & Lena Marshall purchased this villa in 2014

Why Bob & Lena Marshall chose Northside

Paradise Found Villa's unique architecture and unusual location is nothing less than magical! Just a short walk to Picara Point, where you will feel like you are in the middle of the sea, with nothing but water all around you. A truly wondrous location!

What makes this villa unique

The Villa has it's own private small rocky beach, just steps from the villa with access to the amazing and vast coral reefs directly below the Villa. There are 2 spacious verandas, one on each level, as well as a huge lower deck, nearly 1500 sq ft of amazing view, a perfect spot for a wedding!

Next to the lower deck is a multilevel pool, with in-water bar stools, in-water bench, shallow area for in-water loungers, as well as a deep area for swimming.

Absolutely Amazing! I would give a 15/10 stars if I could!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, this property is amazing! The two main things our group wanted in a trip were (1) a great place to stay that had all the amenities we needed and a terrific view, and (2) zero stress from check in and check out (and during our stay). Lena was ABSOLUTELY amazing and took care of us like family. The property overlooks Maegans Bay, which is gorgeous, and is on the end of a peninsula so you literally can see water on both sides of the property if you walk out the front or back.

What really makes this place is the outdoor entertaining space. The pool area and outdoor lounge space is excessive, which is what you want in a vacation home. There are two enormous outdoor patios on the other two levels of the property.. so to matter where you are in the house you have options. The patio on the top level is terrific for eating outside, rain or shine (it's covered).

I can't say enough about our stay here - it was more than we could have asked for. Lena was very helpful and made sure, from the minute of our arrival, we felt worry free.

Our group of 13 felt comfortable in this home. We were in St Thomas for a wedding and none of us had been to the island before - so it was a shot in the dark on where to stay. We don't have any regrets.. we made the right call by staying here - hands down.

Can't wait to come back!

A trip of a life time!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to take our 5 girls on a spring break trip this year. It was a trip of a life time!! We had the best time with our family. The views were amazing and the house was beautiful!! The beds and linens were all very comfortable and good quality. Lena had the house stocked with our favorite drinks and food to get us started for the first few days. She always called when she was going into town to see if we needed anything. We could not have picked a better place to stay in St Thomas. I look forward to returning with some couples next time. I would highly recommend staying here when you visit St. Thomas.

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a wedding for one week. We had 12 people staying at the house ranging from 4 months to 65. The owner has truly thought of everything. Items such as play pens, sun hats, sunscreen, flat irons, tooth paste, soaps, cooking supplies (lots of dishes), kayaks and even snorkel gear could be found in the house. We stopped by the Cost U Less grocery and made all of our meals in the house. We left only twice to do a snorkel trip to St John and to check out Megan's Bay Beach. We have traveled to many homes in the carribean and this one tops them all. Perfect view, perfect pool (it's got a section for babies and plenty of room to swim), all around perfect. We will be back for sure!!!

Paradise Found Family Dream Vacation - Christmas 2016

  • 5 of 5

Prior to our arrival, Lena was in touch with us and answered all of our questions. Upon arrival our family of 7 was warmly welcomed by Lena, an array of food and drink for the first dinner and breakfast (including dietary needs), and a gorgeous home with stunning views! The description online was spot on, but it was just so much more in person! We all had spacious bedrooms, verandas, and large group areas to eat and relax together including a huge granite table with comfy chairs outside to soak in the views and sounds of the crashing waves. The home is beautifully decorated, meticulously clean, and the beds were comfy. The ceiling fans, air conditioning, and even the bug zappers made it such an enjoyable experience. The pool, well, that was amazing with bar stools, a bench, a shallow area to sunbathe and a deeper area with fountains to play and swim! The house was surprisingly stocked with anything you could possibly imagine! The beach towels, kayaks, and water gear for snorkeling was much appreciated! We lacked for nothing!!! The home layout allowed for privacy and freedom to feel at home away from home, yet very luxuriously. The local cost-u-less allowed us to shop for food/drink and cook most of our meals at the house, especially with a second full sized empty fridge/freezer in the laundry room. We enjoyed swimming and relaxing at Megan's Bay, seeing local sites by day in town and celebrating New Year's Eve to welcome 2017 at the house. Lena cared for the pool daily and attended to our needs, though we never saw her. The attention to detail in the home was so well thought out, the abundance of supplies was awesome, and the warmth of the island and people like Lena made it difficult to leave. After posting pics, we now have friends inquiring and we highly recommend Paradise Found Villa to all! Wishing we could book it for Christmas again next year, but it's already booked! On our last morning as we were packing, we got to witness a group of dolphins swim and play in the bay as they passed the house as if to say good bye to us. A beautiful ending to a beautiful vacation filled with fun memories for our family. Thank you Lena and Bob!

The Best Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

To quote one of our 17 year old twins during the trip "Today is the best day of my life this far". We brought 4 kids (ages 10, 13, 17, 17) with us to stay at Paradise Found. My cheeks are tired from smiling. Even though we had a disastrous flight (50 hrs from Denver) getting there due to weather and mechanical problems, this was an amazing experience. Our flight landed late at St. Thomas and Lena insisted on meeting us at the airport at 10.30pm to make sure we made it to the house without any issues. She even brought her van just in case the rental car didn't work out due to our tardiness.

The house was well-stocked with every dish, glass, towel, and paper products we would need. They had a plentiful supply of snorkeling equipment, water shoes, boogie boards, and beach towels. In addition to the standard stock of groceries that they provide, Lena picked up additional groceries that we requested. Lena even checked in with us mid-week stating that she was heading to the grocery store and asked if she could pick up anything for us while she was there.

The entire property was incredibly clean, the pool is amazing, and the views are second to none. The beds and linens were very comfortable. The snorkeling right off the "back yard" was fantastic. It can be a little challenging to get in the water when the seas are less than calm.

Thank you Lena for making sure the rest of our vacation went off without a hitch. We hope to be back one day.

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

Everything at our Villa was wonderful. The owners certainly went above and beyond with a fully stocked kitchen and pantry including many spices and condiments, and a welcome package of food so we did not have to run out immediately to the store. The views are spectacular. It was nice having the kayaks to use to paddle across the bay each day and there were towels, beach chairs, snorkels, and coolers that we could use which was very convenient. The owners were available for any questions and we enjoyed running in to them at brunch at Abi on Sunday. Would definitely recommend this villa if the size suits your needs.

Paradise Found Villa has some of the BEST coral reefs off our private beach, so when the water is calm, it’s a sight not to be missed! You can see a variety of fish, turtles, etc, as well as some fantastic coral formations that are virtually untouched! Please help save our reef by not removing these living formations from the ocean. 4 sets of fins and snorkels are available for guests to use while staying at the Villa.

Picara Point, less than 2 tenths of a mile from the Villa is an amazing site for destination weddings, with the Villa being a fantastic Reception location!
