About Cherise Alexander

My husband and I love traveling the world. When we vacationed in St. Thomas we thought it was the most beautiful place we had ever seen. We returned a few months later to purchase our lovely home. We have "no worries" when we are in St. Thomas and living on "island time." We hope that you will enjoy our home as much as we do. And just in case you were wondering, we are both proud University of Kansas student/athlete alumni. Hence the name Jayhawk Villa.

Cherise Alexander purchased this house in 2016

The place is .well kept. You have everything you need just like staying in your own house. Request was promptly acted upon when the stove ran out of propane gas. Cherise, the owner returned our several calls even at that time she was in Japan (considering the time difference). We highly recommend this place for families looking for a wonderful place to stay in St. Thomas. Special mention to Gloria for taking good care of us.

We had an amazing time at Jayhawk Villa and the local areas!

  • 5 of 5

The Pictures do not justice with how beautiful this home or the views from almost anywhere inside or the deck. The home was prepared and cleaned beyond 5 Star Hotel quality, the linens and all details were perfect when we arrived. My family had an amazing visit, we only stayed for a few days as we were headed to Tortola for a sailing trip. (Next time we plan to stay longer) I also emailed the owner because just before our trip our sightseeing experience fell apart, I asked for some local things to do, she as always was quick and very helpful. FYI, just a few minutes away is Secret Beach, this is one of our favorite spots in all of the islands! Cheers

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

This Property was everything I needed being away from home. It was beautiful!!! Minus the fact that I wasn’t use to being somewhere where they conserve power. My kids however had a blast and everything we needed was within reach.

Our family enjoyed the property with plenty of space for 6, sweeping views of Secret Harbour and close proximity to Red Hook. The condo was in excellent shape after the 2017 storms

Wonderful/Comfortable Vacation Home! Superb views from all rooms!

  • 5 of 5

3 couples really enjoyed our stay at Jayhawk Villa May 10th-May14th 2018. The Villa was Comfortable and clean with superb views! The porch overlooking the Carribean was our favorite spot to hang out when we were at the villa. There is also a beautiful and nicely landscaped courtyard area which we enjoyed as well. Walking distance to Secret Beach which had a nice beach, restaurant and snorkeling right off the beach. Another perk is the closeness of the villa to RedHook where we took the car ferry to St John for a day during our visit (we rented a minivan from Hertz at airport to easily get around during our stay). We also bought groceries in RedHook at Moe's Market. Also enjoyed a few great meals at some of the restaurants in Red Hook. Just around from RedHook is Sapphire Beach which is AMAZING...still my favorite spot on St. Thomas. Highly recommend Heavenly Day Catamaran over at Bolongo Beach for a wonderful excursion!! Also, be sure to take the ferry over to St. John for a day. You can snorkel with Sea Turtles right off the beach at Maho beach!!

The island still has some power issues from last year's hurricane season....the power randomly goes off, but usually only for limited periods of time. This was no fault of the homeowner....its a problem island wide. This did not interrupt our vacation in the islands though. We loved our visit back to St. Thomas and were happy to see everything back up and running after the devastating damage from last year's hurricane season.

Villa owner, Cherise, was readily available when we noticed we had a problem with one of the ACs in a bedroom. She had maintenance promptly come out the next day and install a brand new AC Unit. Overall, a very clean , comfortable and well stocked 3 bedroom 2 bath villa in a great location with Amazing views of the carribbean. Highly recommend.
