  • Lush, Tropical Paradise

    "The "Cottage" turned out to be the caribbean paradise I was dreaming about. The lush, tropical feel one would expect in a rain forest along with the view of Megan's bay was magnificant. What a place to call your own for several weeks. We actually stayed for three weeks and should have booked longer. The "Cottage" is well stocked with everything you need so don't bring bring anything other than your clothes. They have beach chairs, beach towels, cooler and everything you need including the hair dryer, washing machine and dryer. The view at daybreak and the setting sun is breathtaking. Distant noices of dogs barking or roosters crowing are noticable in the late afternoon but the noices are from a distance and not close by the cottage. The cottage is surrounded on all sides by lush greenry so you free secluded and at peace. One of the reasons why I chose this site is they allowed my small dog to accompany us. And she (Remi) had a wonderful time on the large expansive deck chasing small lizards although she never caught one. Hull Bay is close by and we found it to be a small friendly local beach where we went snorkling. Remi was also allowed on the beach and could run up and down the sandy shore line without being on a leash. You will need a car to travel around the island since this location in high in the hills and not close to any stores. So, remember you will be driving on the left side of the road which didn't create any problems for us. The terrain is a little steep and it might take you a couple of days to feel comfortable with driving around the sharp curves on the roads. But, we didn't seem to have any problems with this. If you are accustomed to an air conditioned resort room, this might not be your place. The only time we were a little uncomforabel was from 3 to 5 in the afternnon. Other than that, the cottage was wonderful."

  • 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."

  • Perfect for Two

    "We really enjoyed our stay . It was a perfect getaway. Comfortable, relaxing, quiet and peaceful with cool breezes and bird songs. Leslie and Steve are a delight and we would definitely recommend staying there. The beach at Smith bay was our favorite. We would love to visit again"

  • 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!"
