Recent St. Thomas reviews

  • Lovely pool, stunning views, comfortable accommodations & cooled bedroom and central location!

    "My 8 year old son & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Having read previous reviews, I opted to "wait & see" on renting a car but rented one immediately the first morning. I would strongly recommend a car. (More on that at end of review.) Pool was a highlight of our trip, the view is every bit as perfect as the pictures/description. My son struggled w/ the salt water. He loved the ocean but the sea water, not as I had hoped. This reduced the snorkeling time I had anticipated greatly, but the pool was a perfect replacement, (combined w/ Coral World's "sea trek" to see/interact with a lively reef area & sea life 20 feet below) and we swam morning & night, even late nights. The unit was perfectly appointed for our needs & bedroom remained fabulously cool in 90°+ temps. Daytime breeze made the rest of the unit easily liveable. Internet was adequate, (a bit spotty for facetime/streaming a movie). Can't attest to anything regarding the TV as neither my son or I bothered to turn it on in 5 lovely days!!!! (Parenting win!) The location was lovely, just above Frenchman's cove and reef resorts. I felt a bit misled by previous reviews mentioning taking a taxi from the airport with a stop for groceries on the way. Perhaps due to our evening arrival (?), we were given only the option of a shuttle, for all practical purposes, w/ about 8 of us sharing a taxi van. There was clearly no option to stop for groceries/supplies. Luckily, the unit had a gallon of drinking water in the fridge when we arrived. Also, in 90°+ temps, walking to where we could catch a taxi/safari taxi was a bit taxing. If that's the climate you're used to, perhaps it would be fine. Add to that attempting to carry all we would want with us for the day & concern of what to do w/ any valuables while swimming/snorkeling,... I highly reccomend a car. Many reviews state the steep roads really demand a jeep, we were given a Toyota Yaris & NO difficulty getting around whatsoever. We'd stay here again!! Side notes...car ferry to St John was a great option & I also reccomend having a car on St John unless you simply want to see trunk bay & shops there. We enjoyed Cinnamon bay very much w/ very nice snorkeling right off shore. St John is a beautiful island w/ many beaches. If you like to explore, take a drive! Coral world was great! Loved "sea lion swim", "Sea trek" & the airconditioned underwater observatory. We fed & touched stingrays, saw green sea turtles & sharks. Nice aviary & iguanas everywhere."

  • Great all around!

    "This is a fantastic property! We have stayed at a few different rentals on the island, but this one is by far the best. Great location and very clean. The owners are friendly and very helpful. Wonderful experience. Will definitely stay here again on our next trip to St. Thomas!"

  • Virgin Island Vacation

    "Shane was an excellent guide! His familiarity with the area allowed us to see the best of the US and British Virgin Islands. He had options when the weather turned bad and always provided a Plan A or Plan B. The meals were delicious - fresh and healthy breakfasts - quick lunches so we could keep playing - and yummy home cooked meals. It was nice to balance with eating dinners "on land". Also very much enjoyed the Captains "Drink of the Day". He does a great job of stocking the boat according to your preference sheet. Shane does his best to ensure all had a good time. We had 6 adults - parents and 4 adult children and all found it great fun. The accommodations were comfortable- good sleeping with the breeze and rocking boat. You should understand that this is an "outdoor" vacation so blow dryers...heels...and fancy outfits can stay at home. We have wonderful memories of our trip on the Guiding Light!"
