"Ocean Kaleidoscope Villa is perfectly located on the island of St. Thomas just north of Red Hook on an accessible road overlooking the exquisite view you see in the picture. We arrived at night unable to see the view in the nighttime darkness, and were dazzled by its beauty when we awoke the following morning. As a matter of fact, we spent a great deal of our time on the very large extended porch outside enjoying conversation with one another and the lovely view. You won't find better hosts then Gail and Curlson, who welcomed us so warmly and provided for every need that we left feeling more like cherished friends than clients. The house is immaculately clean--a top priority for me--and the layout and amenities are exactly as described. I would happily recommend this property to a friend or relative, and expect to return myself with my adult daughter (who wasn't able to travel this time). We didn't use the small pool, but that's only because we preferred the beach. Smith beach, formerly Lindquist, is within walking (and very easy driving) distance--approximately 400 yards once you've made your way down the hill to Route 38. Although we also visited Magen's Bay, the "neighborhood" beach at Smith/Lindquist was absolutely perfect for our needs: clean, fine-grain sand, gorgeous waters, uncrowded but very friendly. (I wish I were writing this review from my beach chair there! ) I definitely recommend the large spa (hot tub) right on the premises after returning from the beach. It's roomy, warm, and helps soothe tired backs from zip lining, hiking, etc. I confess that I ventured into Charlotte Amalie to enjoy one day of shopping, which was fantastic. And my adult (23, and 29) sons enjoyed more than one evening out on the town (especially Duffy's Love Shack). But the real beauty of St. Thomas is in the gorgeous natural beauty of the island, especially those turquoise waters, and the human kindness of people like Curlson and Gail ready to share their home with guests from around the world. You'll love it here!
