  • 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 bit small but good value for the price

    "Great location really close to Red Hook and all the East end amenities. There are two pools in the village. A small one was close to our unit and was great for an afternoon dip. Great views from the balcony. The "redecoration" was a bit cluttered for my taste and the unit overall was a bit on the small side, but OK for one or two people. The unit was clean with solid appliances and pretty much everything you needed for a short stay. Considering the price, it was a very good value for East end. The beach at Sapphire Resort was OK. There was a lot of construction going on but not much else."

  • Beautiful views and great property owner.

    "The views were breathtaking. Jeff the owner was absolutely wonderful to deal with. The beds were comfortable sheets were clean. Plenty of towels. Debbie, the caretaker was very polite and friendly.In fact all the neighbors that we met or came across where also very friendly and helpful. We were pleasantly awoken Every Morning by the sound of roosters. After rain in the evenings we did have to listen to chirping sounds that we were thinking may have been frogs or possibly Birds. The chirping sound after a rain in the evening may have been the worst part of the condo. We did plenty of snorkeling and swimming on the beach and found much Wildlife to be viewed in and out of the water. Overall we give them 4 out of 5 stars. We would house giving it four and a half stars but it wasn't an option. I would recommend this rental unit to friends and family and would stay there again if I found ourselves on st. Thomas again. have given it for and a half stars but it wasn't an option. I would recommend this rental unit to friends and family and would stay there again if I found our souls on Saint Thomas again. In order to have received 5 stars the air conditioners in the bedrooms would have needed to have been able to perform at a little bit better level."

  • Stunning views! Pictures on web are very accurate. Linda and crew were great!

    "We stayed at Villa Papillon for a spring break trip. Having never been to The USVI, this was a great place to launch from to experience the island (and St. Johns) or to just hang out and admire the views in a tranquil setting. You do feel a bit isolated when at the villa, so don't expect a lot to do right around you unless you are willing to drive or walk some very hilly terrain. RENT A JEEP or small car...you'll be glad you did. Megan's Beach was super easy to drive to (5 mins). Villa property was great!!!..and as advertised on VRBO. Pool set up was really nice. We had easterly winds the entire time, so mosquitoes and heat never seemed an issue. If you like a breeze, you will love Villa Papillon. Linda was great and answered all of our questions. Overall, we were most impressed with the views...and the binoculars got A LOT of use! Much to look at with the BVI's in the distance and occasional boats passing before you. Last day full rainbow was a perfect finale. Pros: Views, Villa accommodations, Linda's help and communication, cleanliness, pool, breezes, fun books and pictures, etc. to browse, chime sound, comfortable beds, great towels, awesome outdoor furniture, mid-week cleaning, the welcome basket of goodies, secure feeling (gated community), lots of deck space to hang with others or be by yourself. Cons: Really non..but if we had to nit pick re our experience on St. Thomas; lack of clarity where to get food. Do your homework prior to arriving. Cost U Less for bulk items, Moes in Red Hook for fresh fish and huge wine selection. We figured it all out about the time we had to leave. Lastly some things in the villa showing some age, but in a minor way...and none a deal breaker. Lastly, we took the jeep via a car ferry over to St. John's. Don't waste your time doing that as its a time killer...and parking once you are on St. John's is impossible at least during the busy season."
