  • Peaceful Paradise

    "My husband and I had the best experience with Michael at Little Palm. This villa is perfect. Waking up to the views on the patio with a cup of coffee in hand was unbeatable. Besides the views being beyond what a picture can capture, everything about this villa makes life on the island comfortable and convenient. The drive to the villa is sketchy! Its totally doable, but don't have hopes of drinking in town (Cruz Bay) and being comfortable driving home. Save the evening cocktails for the private pool or deck of this beautiful Villa. A day or two into the trip and the drive seems second nature. We rented our jeep from Bougainvillea Rentals, it seemed to be the most reasonably priced. Although the brand new jeep screams tourist, we liked that the jeep from Bougainvillea wasn't spattered with stickers with the rental companies name, making the tourists car even more well known. We loved that the villa came equipped with beach chairs and coolers, made beach bumming very convenient! We rented snorkel gear from Just Beach and were very pleased. The pre trip planning felt like a breeze with all the assistance from the owner Michael. He made every effort to make our arrival go smoothly and an abundance of information about the island so we felt like locals upon arrival! We spent 2 days in St. Thomas before heading to St. John. HUGE MISTAKE!!! If you can make the timing work, don't waste your valuable vacation time in St. Thomas. Get to Little Palm ASAP, you will be happy you did! I can't say enough about this rental. Don't keep searching...this is the most perfect spot on the island!"

  • Caribbean Cottage

    "This little cottage is tucked away on a hillside on the beautiful island of St. Thomas with panoramic views of the beautiful ocean and lush mountainsides. I loved that the owners, Ken and Joanne, were very accommodating, both to me and my old pug! This quaint little get away is perfect for those who want a true local feel while in St. Thomas. Everything one needs is here: well appointed bedrooms, a beautiful open concept den, great kitchen and bathroom, and an incredible patio/terrace with outstanding star gazing at night. All in all, the price, location, and accommodations were awesome!"

  • Beautiful views, relaxing atmosphere...

    "The house was as advertised--very spacious, plenty of room for us to all be there (group of 6) and yet not feel like we were crowding each other. The caretaker met us at the airport and led us back to the house. I was really glad he did, as my Verizon phone would not work on the island (AT&T and T-Mobile seem to work though). The roads take some getting used to--left side driving on winding, narrow mountain roads. The driveway to the house involves a very sharp turn, but can be managed with care (we had a mini-van and did it, but a jeep would be better). Of note: the kitchen is a separate building from the bedroom/livingroom house. The bathrooms are all attached to the bedrooms as well. The sun deck was really cool, but there were about 70+ steep rocky stairs to get down to it. The water was pretty rough too--if you want to get in, you have to navigate the surf and the rocks. I highly recommend planning to visit one or more of St. Thomas's peaceful beaches; the waves are gentle to non-existent, and the beaches are super clean and provide bathrooms. You do have to pay to get in--per person, and also for parking. We visited the Magen's Bay beach, but there are many others that are beautiful as well. Overall, great trip. BRING BUG SPRAY."

  • Magical, Serene Paradise with Jaw-Dropping Views!

    "We just stayed a week in Blue Skies Villa. There were 8 of us and we all had our own perfect, private space. My husband and I stayed in the master suite in the main house, my 12-yr old son took the private bonus room off the master with the bunk bed, my sister and her fiancé stayed in the 2nd master across from the pool, and my 21 & 22-yr old nieces took the downstairs beach suite with my 14-yr old daughter. The layout was fantastic, and you can dream up any rooming configuration you want because there are plenty of sofa beds and airbeds (like our group, not everyone will fit neatly into a 2-person per suite layout!) And the place! I don’t even know where to start – it had all the dreamy elements of a paradise combined with all the comforts of home. Of course, our favorite spot was the enormous deck with plenty of comfy chaise lounges overlooking magnificent Magen’s Bay. We had our own private pool complete with pool toys and floats, and a barbeque grill that we used several times. We read many reviews about how the villa was extremely well-stocked, but we weren’t sure exactly what that meant and ended up bringing WAY more than we needed. Every single closet, drawer, and cabinet was stocked with everything you could possibly imagine: plenty of sheets, towels, shampoo, conditioner, sunscreens, hairspray, hairdryers and flatirons, cleansers, laundry supplies, pots, pans, condiments, etc. etc. They even had a garlic press! So we were able to make plenty of our own meals with supplies from Moe’s Gourmet Groceries in Red Hook (AWESOME STORE!), and we were able to do our own laundry which came in handy since we spent so many days at the beautiful beaches of St. Thomas and St. John. There’s even a library with plenty of DVDs and books! And I can’t write a review without giving a big shout-out to our wonderful, attentive hosts, Rashel and Jim! They escorted us from the airport, pre-stocked the kitchen with the grocery list we provided, checked up on us, and were available to answer any questions during our stay. Rashel is also a licensed massage therapist, and while we intended to take advantage of her services, we lost track of time during the week! She will bring all the necessary supplies directly to the villa. Blue Skies Villa was so relaxing and beautiful. We would not have had such an incredible experience at any overpriced, high-end resort. If you’re thinking about visiting St. Thomas, DO NOT HESITATE to book this villa!"
