  • Wonderful, will be going back

    "This is the place for those who want a private adventure retreat away from the tourist areas at a great value. The listing description was accurate with a nice layout for 1 or 2 couples. the largest positive point for us was the snorkeling right in front of the house. A 40 to 50 yard trail leads to a secluded beach with amazing snorkeling for more than a mile to the east and almost a mile to the west (more than most folks can accomplish). there is world class coral right in front of the house that was already old when Columbus arrived in the area, and there is such limited access to the water along this shoreline, ensuring the reef seclusion and beauty. We were in the water 7 times in 4 days and never saw another person in the water with us. If I had to say anything negative it would be that the place could use a little more dusting, but Carolyn was a great host, and ensured we had everything we needed. We recommend renting a jeep as the roads are steep in places and if you like to explore like us it is a must to have 4 wheel drive. We took the ferry to St John on one day and loved hiking the Reef Bay Trail and snorkeling at the end (Hike back up was tough but worth it, make sure you see the petroglyphs). Coral World was also worth going to, and we did spend an enjoyable day exploring Charlot Amalie. Carolyn made it easy for us on arrival by recommending we obtain our vehicle and go get groceries, and then she will meet you at whichever grocery store when you call, and then lead you to the house for check in. The car rental we chose (we recommend Discount cars, they pick you up at the airport minutes after calling them) and the grocery stores are minutes form the airport, and the home is 15 to 20 minutes from there. you can reach the furthest points on the island from the home in 30 minutes at the most. Thank you Carolyn Wes & Lisa"

  • Fantastic family getaway!

    "What a beautiful place... Lovely water view, good sized pool, and great open space in main house. Plenty of room for our family of 4 adults and 1 toddler. Of note it is close to the beach but you will require a car to get there. Would highly recommend for a family getaway or 2-3 couples."

  • Heaven ...

    "There is nothing but beauty you see as soon as you drive thru the gated entrance. The view of the bay is stunning. You have immediate access to the soft sandy beach from just a few steps from the house. Just prepare to take short showers due to not slot of hot water. And the mattresses need updating but other than that, this is the best vacation home on Megan's Bay, hands down. I no longer need to search for my vacation house to rent... Thank you Annika!!!"

  • Honeymoon Experience

    "We had a blast during our week long stay in St. Thomas at this vrbo. We decided to opt against the all-inclusive options to save money and to explore the island and get a better taste of the culture. If you are looking to literally sit on a beach and not move on your trip, this isn't your vrbo spot. But what we liked about this choice with Jason and Dee was that we were able to really explore. We spent one day at Maegan's Bay (5-10 min drive). We spent one day at the Ritz getting massages and hanging there (10 min drive). We spent 1 day at St. John (10 min drive to ferry). We spent 1 day at Lindquist Beach (5 min drive). We spent one day at Frenchman's Reef (10 min drive). We spent a day ziplining (it was, meh.) Notice the theme? Everything is pretty convenient. Pluses: - The views each morning were awesome. - We used the hot tub every night. It was so nice. - Jason and Dee are SUPER friendly. Jason even helped me change a flat tire in our rental car (if you plan to explore, we recommend getting a rental vs. taxi's. It may be a tad more, but it's more convenient). They also provided great recommendations about the island and were very prompt in every response. They helped us get a good sense of the culture, too, which we liked. Minuses: - Not much here, but if I were to be nitpicky, the road noise off the house is a bit loud. - If you want to eat every meal in and cook yourself, this is not the place to do it. We cooked a few meals, getting local fish from Fish Tales and heading to the market, but it's a tight, ill-equipped kitchen. That said, you want to eat out if you can -- We LOVED Mafolie restaurant (5 min drive) and Havana Blue. - It's an experience getting in and out of the house property with the gate and the hill. There are no shoulders on the roads, really, so you just have to focus when you drive. - The snorkel gear isn't the best, so plan on renting some if you really will snorkel a lot. The beach chairs and towels were great, though. Overall, we absolutely loved our stay with Jason and Dee. We saved a lot of money going this route, had good access to the island, slept well on the nice bed, had wifi at our disposal if we needed it, etc. Highly recommend: Maegan's Bay, Trunk Bay, hiking to Waterlemon Cay on St. John's, Annaburg Ruins, Havana Blue Restaurant, strong drinks at Fat Turtle, getting a car rental."
