  • Incredible!!!

    "We had the most amazing stay at Carribean Castaway. The owners (Joanne & Ron) were easy to work with and the property managers, Dave and Dawn were very welcoming and very genuine! Our family had a blast and have so many memories while staying in this gorgeous and comfortable villa. We did our share of exploring the island & eating but the villa has everything...great views, an infinity pool, a beach with great snorkeling off their cove while listening to relaxing music while you chill, swim or snorkel. Chartered a catamaran named Altitude Adjustment to St. John (Brian - very cool dude & retired cop from CO who knows a ton of USVI history). Thanks you Joanne & Ron for sharing your incredible abode! Cannot wait to return again! Wish it was tomorrow!!! #besttripever"

  • Fantastic family vacation

    "We rented the villa at the last minute- literally the last minute. The owner was fantastic and incredibly responsive on a Saturday to arrange the start our vacation at Eau Claire the next day (Sunday). We brought our 3 year old son, and had an amazing vacation. The pocket beach on the property was easily accessible for our son down the stairs, and the water was warm (even in the morning), shallow, and calm. There were fish, turtles, lizards, and pelicans as constant companions making a great natural environment. It is an easy walk/swim through the water (even carrying a 3 year old) to the larger and mostly unused Little Magen's beach where there is a spot of decent snorkeling off the near side. The location is great for day trips- including to the car ferry terminal to St. John. We stayed in the 2BDR/1BA which has plenty of space, a fantastic deck looking out across the bay, and is well appointed and comfortable. We used the AC sparingly when going to bed, and the screens were very good at keeping out bugs. The laundry on the property was essential and makes packing light feasible."

  • A Comfy Secluded Getaway

    "My boyfriend and I, joined by another couple, had a fabulous week together at Periwinkle! As soon as we walked in the front door we were taken aback by the views and the wonderful space the owners have created. The photos really do not do this place justice. The cottage has an amazing atmosphere: it is tranquil, bright, spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. GETTING THERE: The cottage is located in a quiet, remote area up in the hills overlooking Coral Harbor. It’s about a 30-minute drive from the ferry dock (there are two possible routes). INSIDE THE COTTAGE: The owners have provided all of the things you could possibly need for a comfortable and relaxing holiday (coolers, beach chairs, mosquito spray, soaps, plenty of towels, spices etc.) Sally, the next-door neighbor toured us around the house when we arrived. She is a wonderful lady! There are two en suite bedrooms identical in size (one with air conditioning and one without), and the decor is bright and cheerful in each. I woke up to the sunset coming over the bay every morning and it was wonderful. The rooms are detached from the living/kitchen area, which is nice because it provides some privacy. The pool is much bigger than it appears in the photos, and it’s quite cool (which is a welcome respite from the heat). Goats, donkeys, sheep, and cockerels inhabit the hills surrounding the cottage and their noises provide much amusement. If you are one of those people that needs air-conditioning and can’t handle wildlife this in not the place for you. This Island has ALLOT of mosquitos. We are all covered in bites. Periwinkle is not treated, and you will leave with a ton of itchy bites. THE VIEWS: AMAZING! Whether you are lying in the hammock upstairs or down by the pool the views are breathtaking! THE BEACHES: The beaches are not within walking distance, and they are quite far away (at least 10-15 minutes drive) so you will need to rent a Jeep. NEARBY: There are two grocer/corner shops nearby: Love City and Lily's Gourmet Market. Both are within walking distance (if you like a good hike up the hill). There are also a few restaurants, shops, a post office and water sports within walking distance at Cocoloba Shopping Center. PERFECT DAY: Hike Bordeaux Mountain Trail, get a spot of lunch at Chateaux Bordeaux (I recommend the Roti), head down to Cinnamon bay for an afternoon swim, and finish off with sundowners at Periwinkle in the pool."

    "This is a great location as it faces east so in shade late afternoon. Perfect beach with palms trees, iguanas, beach chairs, a outdoor bar steps away! Perfect place to unwind at end of day of exploring. Close to Red Hook shops, ferries... Comfortable condo with great breezes thru the unit. Everything you need provided: beach towels, noddles, cooler, Quiet and Private Complex, would go again!"
