My husband is from St. Thomas & our oldest daughter always dreamed of being married here. When she started planning her wedding, she immediately picked St. Thomas for a beach wedding. With family already living there, we also planned a vacation, family reunion & our daughter's amazing wedding. We knew we'd need a place to call home for the 13 days we were there & we fell in love with the photos of Joel's home.
From the time we reserved the home to the time we left, Joel has been amazing. When there was a question, he answered & immediately helped! The home is absolutely gorgeous. After a hot day running errands or meeting with vendors for the wedding, we knew we could come 'home' to relax by the pool, cook dinner & sleep in the cool breeze of the air conditioning. If we didn't feel like eating out, the fully stocked kitchen has updated amenities & everything you could imagine needing for entertaining. The bedrooms are comfortable & relaxing. The best part was getting up in the morning with a cup of coffee, going out onto the wrap-around deck which overlooks the ocean & listening to the waves.The view from the house allows you to see the British Virgin Islands & St. John. You can watch boats & locals fishing. The neighbors were also kind & helpful.
Since it's been a few years since my husband was home, we toured the island, saw new sights, as well as seeing the places he grew up & spent time. Our 3 daughters hadn't been here since they were babies & got to have a truly extraordinary vacation.
Although we tried different restaurants around the island - Fishtails was the absolute best!! For the best seafood on the island - definitely go there! The guestbook was helpful with places to go, restaurants to eat at (or not) and the best places for good deals.
We will positively reserve this amazing home again when we return to St. Thomas...my husband is already planning the next trip! Thank you Joel for everything. You helped to make our vacation & daughter's wedding a truly magical, memorable, relaxing experience.
