  • Incredible View and great location!

    "We had a great stay at Ginger Thomas! The view from the porch is incredible, and you can't beat the location just moments up Centerline Road from the restaurants in Cruz Bay, the Dolphin Market and the ferry docks and a quick 10-15 minutes drive to beaches such as Hawksnest, Jumbie and Trunk Bay. The outside porch is fantastic and roomy, and it's where you'll want to spend all of your time! We grilled out one night (grill tools all supplied!), enjoyed lounging on the outside sofa while listening to the sounds of nature and put our toes in the pool. The house accommodates up to 6 people (which we had), but it is ideal for 4 as the interior living space is fairly small when you utilize the pull-out couch and seating is then limited to 2 chairs and 2 bar stools inside. The kitchen has all the items you'll need from the coffee pot and toaster to the plates, paper towels, pots and pans. The house comes supplied with beach towels and chairs as well as snorkel gear, pool noodles and boogie boards. Both bathrooms were clean and good-sized and came supplied with travel-sized shampoo, conditioner, lotion and body wash. Keep in mind when booking that the second bedroom is accessed by exiting the house and going down a flight of steps to a second door. While I knew this prior to booking, families with younger children might not feel comfortable with this arrangement. This setup is ideal for 2 couples because it allows for privacy. The Overtons were always very prompt in returning any emails and easily accessible if we had needed them during our stay. We would definitely stay at Ginger Thomas again in the future!"

  • Four Worldwide Travelers

    "From our first communication with the owners, Scott and Patricia, we were well taken care of. First, the villa is a welcoming, well decorated and warm retreat. It sits above Coral Bay with scenic views 24/7 and has the ability to help you "kick back" immediately. The kitchen has all the pans and serving utensils you need to cook in or just snack and have an afternoon swim in the pool after visiting one of the many accessible beaches. Scott spent additional time showing my husband some good fishing spots and they both recommended great eating establishments. Yes, the cost of food is high on St John, but you are on an island retreat. You will not be disappointed and will have exceptional support if this is your first time on the island. We really developed a nice friendship with both Scott and Patricia. They are honest, hard working and aim to please. We were in command of any privacy we desired, but they were fun to hang with, too. We literally have only positive comments and would return in a flash."

  • 30th Birthday Celebration

    "Let me start off this review by thanking Cynthia for sharing her house with us November 12-19, 2016. My boyfriend and I wanted an :adventurous" vacation away from a resort where we could decide what we wanted to do each day and eat & drink where we chose-not just what was included at an all-inclusive. This was his idea and I took care of the rest. We had never been to the USVI and could not have been more satisfied with our choice. We found Cynthia's condo on VRBO and from the minute I inquired about it, she could not have been more helpful or easy to work with. She answered all of my questions and even called to check on us while we were there. Cimmaron Property Management company (Jill) could not have been more friendly or helpful. They contacted us to check on us during the stay, but we never needed anything. Some advice for those looking to book something private in St. John: -We rented a jeep for 3 days, but really could have used it the whole week. We were being cheap and only reserved it Sunday-Wednesday. pros: no waiting/paying for taxis, availability to go/come as you please, cons: hard to find parking, parking was $16/4 hours in town VERY steep hill at Bliss Cruz views, a Jeep is really the best way to go although you cannot take the tops off which was kind of a buzzkill. We rented from Just Sun Jeeps & they delivered to the house on Sunday! We did have to return it at the ferry dock. -Bars/happy hour tips: Joe's Rum Hut, 4-6 EVERY DAY $3 anything you want/Woodys, 3-7 (I think) $1 Coors Lights and some other well drinksLime Inn, 11:30 am-5:30 pm $4 specialty cocktails, some beer and prosecco on special -We got breakfast/sandwiches from Baked in the Sun and Sam & Jack's so we could pack our cooler and spend all day at the beach. Groceries are expensive there, booze is not. Do not bring it with you, it just takes up space. -The best meal we had all week was at the Lime Inn. Wish we would have gone there earlier in the week. Morgan's Mango was also pretty good too. We did not eat at many restaurants & instead just ate at some of the bars we went to, also got a premade pasta dish at Sam & Jack's that was good. 1 of 2"

  • Traditional Caribbean Charm

    "My husband and I visit St John every year and we stay at a new place each time. Even though, we stayed at Stone Post Cottage for only 3 nights, we found it a delightful comfortable spot. It has an old style aesthetic and vintage appeal. Beautifully appointed inside and out. It's close proximity to town is nice yet you seem to be nicely tucked in among the gardens. Margaret is on-sight if you need anything as well as the friendly caretakers; Ann and Patty. We would definitely stay here again for a much longer time."
