  • Surpassing our highest expectations!

    "We rented both sides of Salty Sway for family guests attending our daughter’s wedding in the Blue Sandcastle Villa across the street. One side accommodated a family of 2 adults with 2 teens and 2 small children. The other side, 4 adults, 2 teens. There are ample sleeping areas and beds. Ingrid, the owner, provided a crib, child’s bed, highchair, car seat, booster seat. The two bathrooms in each side, have been renovated and are beautiful. There are plenty of linens including beach towels. The kitchen is fully equipped and items are brand new. The floor plans in each side are identical and provide lots of space. Air conditioning throughout keeps things cool. The location on the bluffs and views overlooking the sea were incredible. The expansive decks are private, sunny, there is a covered area with outdoor table and chairs. There’s patio furniture, and hammock. Stairway leads down to a rocky beach with access to outstanding snorkeling and is close enough to swim to a neighboring sandy beach at Limetree Resort which is also within easy walking distance. Renting cars is really a must. One family did not, and found getting around impossible for 6 people. They ended up renting a car. Ingrid made arrangements for car rental and cars were delivered to front door. Abi beach is walkable only for the rugged 30-somethings and under, and then, only when the trail is dry. The neighborhood is fairly remote. Jimmy the taxi driver was awesome! He picked up everyone at the airport and got them back in time to catch their flights*. When needed, he arrived on time and was reasonably priced. However, taxis are not metered and are expensive for more than one person. You pay (on average) $15 per person, each way, which can equate to a $60 round trip ride for 2 going to and from the airport or Red Hook ferry. Triple that for 6 people ($180). NOTE: *Allow 3 hours to arrive at airport with checked bags…no joke! Don't bring alcohol. It is the same price as back home and Ingrid can get whatever you want. Ordering food for delivery was expensive, but good for having a few staples upon our arrival. Local grocery stores are close and have everything you need. Do bring snacks as they are expensive here. Fruits and vegetables, especially avocados, are readily available and only slightly more expensive than back home. This was a wonderful place, well appointed, roomy, private, and quiet. Ingrid and Austin were invaluable with their suggestions and help."

  • Exceptional Experience

    "Me and my husband stayed in St Thomas for my 30th Bday. What a Gem it was was so beautiful and breath taking. Scott was awesome he was very helpful and answered any questions we had.. The place was up today and felt as you were home yet was a spectacular view daily.. The drive wasn't bad we maybe got lost once on our first day. Beware its slim to non street signs and lights as well. We Flew to St Johns to enjoy St Patricks Parade. Took a Ferry to St Johns, and even chartered Scott for a boat ride to snorkel and order pizza on the water.. Yes you can hang out in this cool lil area on the water and a boat will bring you pizza that was made on a boat.. Crazy yet it was unexpected.. I can go on and on about how we enjoyed ourselves.. So if your looking for a well stocked, spacious, updated and reasonable place to stay its so worth it."

  • Beautiful mountain retreat with nice views of cruise ships coming and going

    "Love the gate, the deck, the bathrooms and the bedrooms and the layout of the living space. Every time I rent a home in St. Thomas I miss my comfortable furniture in the living room and Hawk Hill was no exception. Maybe owners feel guests aren't in need of this feature but after a day of hiking, swimming, drinking and riding in the rental jeep up and down bumpy roads, I need an upholstered resting spot. While the two bedrooms were very comfortable, no one in my family could sleep on the sofa bed, it caused back spasms. Overall, I would recommend Hawk Hill for a family of four, it was well supplied and offered plenty of space for a fun vacation. My son is a bartender at Havana Blue and it was a quick ride for the best drinks and food on the island. We also love Abi Beach and Hawk Hill was minutes away. Thank you for a great vacation at Christmas, no air conditioning needed, the breeze was amazing!"

  • Beautiful home for a family reunion

    "Wow!, were the words from each and every family member when we walked through the door. We picked Surewinds for our family reunion and it was the best choice we could have made. There were 16 people in our group and there was more than enough room for everyone to spread out. The home was beautifully constructed and decorated and the views were endless. The home was so well equipped we had everything we needed for great family meals, dips in the pool, and gear so we could enjoy the local beaches. It even smelled fantastic with aromatherapy scents infused through out the home. At the end of the day, we could come back and unwind with games around the beautiful and large dining table. The home sits at the end of a cul-de-sac so not only was it serene, there was plenty of room to park a few extra cars. From the beginning, the owner Sandra was so pleasant to talk to and had a wealth of information on St. Thomas. Since it was the first time for everyone in our family, she even told us where to shop for reasonably priced groceries and where we could find all the amenities we needed. Sandra was such a delight that we knew we had made the right choice with Surewinds for such an important occasion. We would highly recommend Sandra and this home to anyone wanting a luxurious home away from home."
