GINGER THOMAS 2 BEDROOM 5 STAR LUXURY VILLA

Cruz Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Designed and built expressly as a romantic getaway Ginger Thomas is a 2 bedroom pool villa with fabulous sunset views and lush, tranquil gardens. The villa is a 1 and a half minute drive from downtown Cruz Bay, yet feels worlds away. Quiet and private with a spectacular view that you won't forget. The outside living area and intimate swimming pool is the perfect setting for relaxing after a day at the beach or just hanging out and reading a book. Ever go on vacation and can't stand the bed? That's not going to happen at Ginger Thomas where the kingsize 'Heavenly Bed' by Simmonds is a standard in all the bedrooms. A fully equipped kitchen for those who want to stay at home along with a gas grill by Weber help make your vacation more convenient and affordable when you just don't feel like going anywhere. Ginger Thomas is a solar green home with a domestic solar hot water and 3 stage water purification system. When it comes to the beach we have tried to think of every thing anyone would want or need; you can expect to have a choice of fins and dive mask/ snorkel ensembles, two different style beach chairs, custom towels, floaty mats, noodles, boogie boards, coolers, beach bags, and even sunscreen for exploring the beautiful waters of the national park. A great place to relax and kick back like you were home in the Caribbean.

Ginger Thomas features 2 large air-conditioned bedrooms with ensuite baths, a fully equipped kitchen for the chef in your party, and a serene living area for reading and entertaining. Enjoy the breezy patio, with a large, comfortable couch for taking in the view, lounge chairs for sunning, and a private pool where you can wash away your stresses.

The breathtaking view can be enjoyed from every room in the house, and includes the crystal clear blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, the boats in the bays on St. John's south shore, and the sparkling lights of St. Thomas across the sound. Snorkel and relax on the white sand beaches of the Virgin Islands National Park, which are just minutes away.

Wonderful Stay

We stayed at Ginger Thomas for 12 days and loved everything about it. The villa is exactly as shown on the website and has every amenity that you would need for a great vacation. The views are unobstructed and spectacular. We found the villa to be very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The distance to town was great too if you needed to run in quick. It was walkable if necessary but I would suggest a car to get up the steep hill! Jim Overton was wonderful to work with and made it known that he was available should we need him during our stay. We have absolutely no negatives to post about our stay or the service we received and plan on staying there again in the future. Thank you again for everything!!

Amazing view!

Recently returned from a fantastic week in St. John and the house was part of it. The view is just amazing and we loved being on the deck and enjoyed the air. The bed was super comfortable with TV in each room (old, but functional with satellite TV) and the bedroom air conditioner worked great. Loved that there were 2 bathrooms and there were washer and dryer in each bathroom. Kitchen is pretty well equipped (could've used another pot) and water cooler with bottled water was even provided. The place was immaculate and there was a very friendly cat that sat outside and greeted us every evening when we got back from the beach.

Now for a few (minor) negatives. The road up to the house is really steep, which isn't unusual in St. John, but the condition is bad so if you have a choice, get a jeep. We unfortunately had a regular sedan and just had to be extra careful in the potholes. The house has WiFi, but barely - it was super slow and didn't reach the downstairs bedroom (just so happened both my husband & sister had work to do and one of the reasons we selected this house was because it advertised Broadband WiFi access). Although a great idea, the tall patio table for dining wasn't practical (maybe put a regular dining table in the main house and get rid of the loveseat and chair?). And lastly, there was no water pressure or hot water. I didn't mind not having hot water for showering, but my husband had a tough time w/shaving.

Overall, as I said, we had a fantastic week; the weather was beautiful; the house is gorgeous. We enjoyed pina coladas from the deck, watching the sunset and the lights of Cruz Bay and St. Thomas coming on as dinner was cooking on the grill. Even saw some shooting stars! And we were on St. John!

Note: house is most suited for adults/2 couples and if you're looking for privacy, unless you go off-off season and the houses next door are empty, you won't get it because you're pretty close on both sides.

Beautiful Villa with Incredible View

My wife and I stayed at this villa over Easter break - our first visit to St John. Jim (the owner) met us in Cruz Bay and led us up to the villa. It's about a five minute drive from downtown, right up the 'hill'. Jim showed us around the villa and gave us some tips on the island - shopping, restaurants, beaches. He's a long time resident of the island. The unit is immaculate with top notch furnishings, towels, dishes, blender, coffee maker, etc.. It's obvious he takes alot of pride in the property. The terrace area is awesome with an incredible view of Cruz Bay with sunrises and sunsets particularly beautiful. Jim is readily available by cell phone is you have any questions or run into any problems. While the unit has 2 bedrooms, the second is in the lower level with a separate outside entrance; as such, it's probably not suitable as a spot for young children. However, the second bedroom does has it's own bathroom, washer/dryer, television and A/C making it ideal for a second couple. Again, we only used the main level. There is a small pool on the terrace which is perfect for cooling off. Jim does a great job of communicating prior to the visit. We had a great time on St John and would definitely recommend this unit as a place to stay!

Comfortable, well-located home with amazing views of Cruz Bay

My wife and I rented this beautiful villa through VRBO. We were met at the ferry dock and escorted us to the villa, which was an easy, though somewhat steep, drive off of the Centerline Road. A quick 5 minutes from Cruz Bay, the villa overlooks the town and harbor. Everything we needed was on the main floor including a kitchen well-stocked with cookware and a bedroom with a cozy king bed and essential bedroom A/C. The relaxing partially covered veranda provided the perfect place to enjoy morning coffee and amazing sunset views. The villa was totally comfortable, spotless, and filled with extra amenities, such as large beach towels and beach chairs, wifi, premium cable, and a Bose radio. The only downside was that the location above town meant that some weekday construction and weeknight club noises resonated a bit in the hills. Also, the neighboring villas were empty during our stay, but had decks nearby that could hinder one's privacy. That said, we would certainly return for overall comfort, quality, and convenience of Ginger Thomas.

Great Owner and Accommodations!

Stayed at Villa from 6-16-11 to 6-25-11. View from back porch / pool area was absolutely stunning. Villa was clean and the combination washer dryer available for use was a great benefit so you can pack light. There was literally nothing else we could have asked for. The owner takes great pride and care in the villa. We would highly recommend to anyone.
