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 Peterborg

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

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!

Paradise Found and Beyond!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 14 stayed at Paradise Found from August 7 - 14, 2017 in celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary. This included my husband and myself, three daughters, two sons-in-law, and seven grandchildren ranging in age from 8 - 16. My husband and I had been to St. Thomas many times because it's our favorite Caribbean island (and we've been to them all many times!), but none of our family had. They were amazed at the beauty of this island.

We are still in awe of the beauty of Paradise Found. The villa itself is huge and the rooms are incredibly gorgeous. All the amenities possible are included. The setting is phenomenal with breathtaking sunsets, crystal aqua blue water at the shoreline for snorkeling and fishing (accessing the water from a villa is unusual in St. Thomas) and views of Megan's Bay (ranked as one of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world).

Lena, the owner, is extremely informative and accommodating, but never intrusive. She actually stocks the villa with food and beverages (including beer, wine and rum!) for the first day so there is no need to grocery shop after a tiring day of traveling. She is always available and is so sweet. Our family had the trip of a lifetime together in paradise! We will definitely be back!

This property is truly Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing 11 day stay at Paradise Found Villa. Lena and Bob truly went above and beyond with preparing the house for our arrival which included a number of provisions allowing for our family to relax upon our arrival rather than the normal chores such as grocery shopping. Throughout our stay they were available to answer any questions we had (whether it was about the islands or the house) and Lena often reached out to us before trips into town to see if she could bring us anything. We could not have asked for a better hostess in Lena!! The villa was stocked with plenty of pool towels, snorkeling gear, pool toys, etc to add to our entertainment and activities. And then there is the unbelievable beauty of the villa. Pictures and words cannot describe the amazing views throughout the house as well as the view from the oversized deck and pool area. We would highly recommend this property to groups of all ages!

Fantastic house with incredible views. The house was beautiful and the kitchen was fully equipped. There is a great ice cream shop close by and Magen's Bay just down the road is beautiful. At the house you can swim either in the pool or in the ocean with some very nice snorkeling. The hosts were wonderful.

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 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!
