  • New Years Perfection

    "We are very lucky to celebrate New Years aboard Catalyst this year. This is our 7th return to Catalyst, but this was our first New Year trip. Although some may think "what's left to see or do" , we can honestly say each vacation has been unique and Captain Al has introduced us to new islands, anchorages, dive sites each visit. Captain Al has been here for more than 10 years and his knowledge of the area, history and current going on's is very helpful. He knows all the best places, and the best times to go visit them (to avoid cruise shippers or has weather extra). He is an easy going Captain, let's us change up the day Or direction on the fly, is always willing to seek out one more dive site or activity for us. In terms of the food ... We usually do the half board charter which allows us to feast in Chef Al meals on board and then try out local restaurants on some islands. To be sure, Capatin Al's meals are top notch masterpieces and many of our most memorable meals have been served on Catalyst. The boat itself is a classic Catamaran, with the interior having nice wood work, comfortable spaces. catalyst has all the water toys, snorkel dive gear you will need, big fluffy sun bed on the trampoline and plenty of shady spaces to escape to. Every time we come back the boat is looking better then we remembered,..very well maintained, new upgrades to keep her looking great and modern. This year when we arrived we found a new rattan wicker couch on the front of the boats!! A couch on a boat... That is how much room there is up there. !! Writing this review makes me miss Catalyst and Captain Al so much... We can't wait for our next Adventure!!"

  • Paradise on St. Thomas!

    "We are a family of 4 who stayed at Beachtops for 5 nights. This place is wonderful! It is technically a 3 bedroom unit, but we only used 2 of the bedrooms and closed off the upstairs bedroom, and she prices depending on how many bedrooms will be needed. This unit had everything we needed, was very clean and nicely furnished, and the owner was wonderful to deal with. There are plenty of bath and beach towels. There is a washer and dryer, a dishwasher, and a grill on the porch (electric). There is also an area to eat and relax out on the porch, as well as plenty of room to hang towels and wet bathing suits at the end of the day. There is also snorkel gear, although 2 of the masks had broken straps (which I forgot to mention to June) but we made one of them work for one of the kids, floats, beach chairs and coolers/ice packs. The views from this unit overlooking Cowpet Bay are beautiful, and it is literally less than a 1 minute walk to the beach. You also have rights to the pool at the Elysian, which is the property right next door, and the pool is probably a 2 minute walk from this unit. The pool is very nice, big and has a hot tub and beach bar for the adults, and my kids loved the iguana that lives there! There are also 2 restaurants on the property. Cowpet Bay is about a 5 minute drive from Red Hook where there are more restaurants, shops, and a grocery store. Red Hook is also where you can catch the ferry over to St. John (but the parking lot fills up quickly in the morning so you may need to park across the street). This condo is a 10 min drive to Coki Beach or Lindquist Beach, about 30 min to Magens Bay, about 30 min to the Ziplines, and about 30 min to Charlotte Amalie. We did have a car which was very convenient, but you certainly don't need one if you want to just relax on the property or walk over to the Ritz. Overall, this place was great. June was lovely, very helpful in making recommendations for restaurants, stores, etc., and she even brought us a plant from a tree in her yard that blooms every night at 7:07. It wasn't much to look at before it blooms, sort of looks like a ripe banana, but watching it bloom and the flower that emerges is amazing! It was sweet of her to share that with us:) I would recommend this condo to anyone coming to St. Thomas, it was great for our family, but would work for 2 or 3 couples as well."

  • Slice of St. Thomas Paradise

    "We had the pleasure of staying at Villa Margarita for 4 days in June 2016 - what a great experience! From the views to the pool to the fantastic breeze off the ocean (we never even turned on the air conditioning!), the villa proved to be everything we were hoping it would be when we booked it. We'll definitely be back!"

  • Location is perfect.

    "We had an amazing time in St Thomas. The location of the condo is perfect. We loved being able to step out the door onto our patio and right on to the beach. The beach is great and the snorkeling right there was awesome. The condo came with enough snorkeling gear for all four of us. (Three adults and one teenager) You also have access to beach chairs and floats and a volleyball net right there on the beach. We spent several of our days visiting St John and the British Virginia Islands. Sapphire Beach is a great location for this. It is located on the east end of the island right next to Red Hook, which is where you catch the ferries to the other islands. There is also a grocery store and many restaurants in Red Hook. Plus there is a marina right there on the property which is where one of our excursions to the BVIs was based. (New Horizon and Breakaway Charters does a great excursion to the BVIs) So we literally just walked out our door across the lot and to the marina. The condo has been updated, it is nice and very clean. The four of us slept comfortably. The owner, Beatrice, was very helpful and replied quickly to the questions we had before we went and anything we needed while we were there. The only issue we had during our stay was that the internet went out the day before we left. I contacted the person I was supposed to for this issue and did not hear back from him, but we left early the next day and I understand that it was taken care of that day. If we were to go back to St Thomas we would definitely stay in this condo again."
