Recent Magens Bay reviews

  • 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."

  • Exceeded Expectations

    "This was our first time doing a VRBO outside of the continental US, we were travelling to St. Thomas for my daughter's Quince celebration and needless to say, I was quite worried. All of my worries completely disappeared the moment we walked in. The owners have cared for this property with such loving devotion and it is evident in every area of the house. Waking up to the views and sitting outside in the evenings was the highlight of the day for me. You can't go wrong with this place!"

  • Great week in USVI

    "We spent a week at Mike's condo celebrating my wife's 30th birthday. The views from this unit are amazing. We traveled all over St. Thomas & St. John and were hard pressed to find better views of the Caribbean & the other islands anywhere. Sapphire Beach is gorgeous. Of the 8 or so beaches we checked out, Sapphire was one of our favorites (along with Lindquist & Hawksnest on St. John). Red Hook is conveniently located just down the hill and has bars, restaurants & a grocery store. We chartered a boat out of Sapphire Marina (check out 'Lion in da Sun' on Facebook) on Thanksgiving. It was the best day of our trip! The beach bar at Sapphire has surprisingly good food and great drinks. Sapphire like the rest of St. Thomas, gets crowded on cruise ships days but we had no problem finding a great spot on the beach and thoroughly enjoying ourselves. We went to Maui for our honeymoon and enjoyed the beaches around STT & STJ as much if not more than the beaches on Maui. Check out happy hour at Secret Harbour. **$7 ahi nachos!! I'd definitely stay at this condo again!"

  • The Best Private Beach on Magens Bay.

    "This was our third trip to Villa Eau Claire. We have stayed in the 1 bed 1 bath, 1 bed studio, and now the 2 bed 2 bath units. This time we brought along our two young boys, 6 yrs old & 8yrs old. My mother-in-law & father-in-law stayed in the studio rental. Both the kids as well as my wife's parents enjoyed every single second of our stay. The stunning view from the house is absolutely breathtaking. We enjoyed snorkeling right along the edge of the rocks where we were able to see a plethora of aquatic life. We ate fresh mango and delicious coconut straight from the property. I have had other family members and friends that have booked at Villa Eau Claire since our most recent stay and it exceeded their expectations as well. The owners are a pleasure to work with! Thank you again for sharing this beautiful location with us. We had a remarkable time and look forward to returning soon!"
