I think we may have found our new home in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands! Our family travels to the USVI at least once a year. We have stayed at the Ritz, we have stayed at Frenchman's Bay Marriot, and we have rented Estates in Peterborg with groups of friends. Villa Nautilus easily ranks right up there as one of our favorite experiences. First off, the Villa is beautifully appointed (think high end), super clean, there is direct access and views of the nicest beach in STT, Sapphire Bay. The room, kitchen and living area is large. This quiet enclave of condos is not pretentious and so wonderful. It really feels like a secret gem that only locals and people who have been visiting for years know about. You will fall in love with Norma, who does a great job maintaining the property (and sharing good advice). We traveled with our two children ages 8 and 6 and it was a perfect. Literally we rolled out of bed and onto the beach. Another bonus is how close it is to the St. John Ferry, Mo's Market (which is like Whole Foods), and a lot of other great restaurants. If you are looking for an authentic local vibe and great home base, this is it! I am sure we will return. Thank you Villa Nautilus and Paul for the hospitality.
