The pictures don't even do this beautiful property justice. We arrived on a sunny day, as all of them were fortunately, and when we opened the door and stepped on to the deck overlooking the sea our jaws dropped! What a view! Walking through the home was almost as impressive as the decor and accommodations were were lovely; very clean and comfortable, nicely decorated and had everything we needed.
We were 4 couples coming from NY and all of us agreed that not only would recommend this trip & property but we would (and most likely will) do it again. The flight from JFK to Charlotte Amalie is direct and less than 4 hours (and very inexpensive) so you can really make the most out of your trip to St. Thomas. We also rented jeeps which i feel was necessary when staying at this property as cabs are expensive and often unreliable from what we were told.
The proximity to the beautiful Magen's Bay is another perk to this property. In fact it was close enough that we took a morning run down to the Bay a few times- there was certainly some waking back as it is a very hilly island! The house had a cooler which we stocked and threw in the trunk and headed for the beach which was nice because it made beach days really hassle-free and inexpensive.
My favorite memories are of all of us cooking in the Cliffhanger kitchen with cocktails and music; enjoying wine on the lounge chairs and just enjoying the views; and my catnap in the hammocks on the lower deck. What more could you ask for?
I also want to mention that the entire transaction and dealings with the owner Larry and his management team were both professional and easy. Everyone I dealt with from beginning to end I found to be friendly, helpful and available if you needed them but otherwise left you alone to enjoy your stay.
If you are looking for a home to rent in St. Thomas LOOK NO FURTHER!!! Cliffhanger is a guaranteed home run. I think that the memory of sitting on that deck with a book or a cocktail in hand will forever be one of my "happy places" I will revisit in my mind :)
