  • Destination Bachelorette

    "After much research and reading countless reviews I decided on Ritz Carlton for my dream bachelorette. We were a bit hesitant on which unit size we should go for as we were a party of 5. We decided on the 2 bedroom unit and were delighted to find that it provided more than enough room for all of our bags and shoes! The staff was aware that I was celebrating my bachelorette and did an excellent job of catering to our every want. Although the pool was great we spent the majority of the time by the beach. Nothing tops the turquoise water in the Caribbean. There were plenty of beach chairs to go around and the wait staff did a great job of checking in with us to refill drinks and food orders. We were lucky enough to try all of the restaurants at the resort and they all surpassed our expectations. The concierge was the biggest help! He suggested the best spots to go to for a night out and arranged our transportation to and from the venues. I didn’t have to worry about a thing the entire vacation. I definitely recommend it!"

  • Family Holiday beyond compare

    "11 family members arrived on the beautiful VI island over the Christmas Holiday. We are all well prepared thanks to the help of Chloe who handed the arrangements and provided great guidance with everything from car rental information to restaurants, churches for Sunday mass, Chloe was so helpful during our stay. The drive from the airport (I recommend a jeep but a car would also work) was about 45 minutes and as you try to find the street marked by four mail boxes (arrive in daylight) and you drive down the gravel lane up to the secluded gated property on the top of the island you will be amazed at every feature of this house and every view. The kitchen where we spent a lot of time as a family was completely open air with the bay of windows open the breeze was amazing. The view from the massive kitchen looked over the pool and straight down to St. John Island with seven islands acting as a ally way for all the boats and yachts passing by this vacation home atop the island. next to the kitchen was a open court yard and then the dining room. We used every inch of this villa. the walk way from the pool takes you to a meditation/party area looking straight down to St. johns. More than a few hours were spent high a perch sipping on coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. The whole house and outside area was wireless for internet if you care about such a thing. The one problem we had is we never wanted to leave the villa to explore the island! Everyone had a beautiful bedroom with a view all with their own showers and bath. We did force ourselves out to explore and if we were not cooking in this kitchen we hit some great local restaurants, just ask Chloe. We also made it to a few great beaches a full day at Magens Bay, pack a cooler with anything you might want to drink. There is also a great bar and shops at the main area. If you are up for a hike you must see Sandy Bay an amazing beach on the far west side of the island. Grad some milk shakes on the way back and back to paradise the what a villa!!!!! What a vacation!!!!"

  • LOCATION!!! LOCATION!!! LOCATION!!! VIEWS!!! VIEWS!!! VIEWS!!!

    "We absolutely loved Villa Encantada and plan to go back! Our trip included three generations: grandparents, parents and 2 kids, aged 6 and 7, so only 6 people for a 4,500 square feet, extremely spacious and well designed home. We had more than enough space, so we never felt on top of each other or lacked privacy. We could have had two other couples with us and still would have had enough space. The location was absolutely perfect. It was a great base of operation, whether we wanted to go snorkeling (Megan's Bay, Coki Beach), shop or grab the ferry at Red Hook or go sailing. We made numerous trips to the grocery stores (Pueblo's / Fruit Bowl) and food stands for fresh fruits and vegetables and cooked almost every night. The kitchen has every appliance, dish, pot, spoon, etc. needed, so meal preparation was easy. The table for 8 was perfect as well and the open floor plan created a great family area where we were all within eye-sight, but doing our own things. PROS: Location, views, space, amenities, tons of decking, speakers throughout the house and outside, privacy, vegetation, proximity to grocery stores and shopping in Charlotte Amalie, BBQ grill, pool, feeling of safety, washer/dryer, towels, binoculars, blender, dishes, gourmet kitchen, air conditioners in bedrooms, on-site caretaker, wonderful and kind owners, too many to name! CONS: need to label light switches (hee hee), no A/C in the living room (These were not bothersome, but there has to be at least one con in paradise, right?) The grandparents had a really hard time finding the “hidden” driveway. We had to keep reminding them to use Google Maps. This is what I actually liked about the villa – it’s secluded, even though it’s 1200 feet above Charlotte Amalie. Also, please note, there are two listings in VRBO and one shows the villa in Charlotte Amalie, even though the description tells you it’s 1200 feet above it. As a result, there was some confusion about the ability to “walk” to town, but this isn’t really viable. You absolutely need a car. (KEEP LEFT!) You can’t really walk anywhere from the house since the roads are extremely narrow and it’s dangerous and with the hills, it’s practically impossible. I actually liked this, because of the seclusion in the midst of the city. Thanks Bill and Brit for sharing your beautiful home with us! https://www.google.com/maps/place/Villa+Encantada/@18.3542464,-64.9434875,17z/"

  • Family Wedding in St Thomas

    "Villa del Mar offered me the opportunity, as mother of the groom, a wonderful venue to host a rehearsal party. Mark "Cabanaman" was exceptionally knowledgeable prior to our arrival in helping me set up everything we needed. The property is more than expected. It is well appointed, stocked with great amenities, clean, and a view you could spend the rest of your life enjoying.! We hired "Purple" to assist us with the party and clean up and she was also more than expected. She is a lovely person and we all appreciated her efforts and efficiencies. We hired Kat Cashion to prepare all of our side dishes and everyone was a hit! The pool and Jacuzzi were the perfect end of day relax and visit time with the immediate family. I can't say enough about the amazing experience we had throughout the weekend. Thanks to all."
