My best friend and rented this house for our one big vacation we take a year. Our first trip to St. Thomas/USVI!!! We had a wonderful time and the Seascape cottage played a huge role in that. Owner and property manager were both reasonably responsive to any questions or issues we had. The only major complaint we had was that the cable and internet didn't work during our stay which was more of a problem with the service provider, than the house itself. But other than that it had everything we needed. The location is perfect. We rented a car (corolla, no we didn't need 4x4 for this house, but some houses had literally vertical driveways). Its about 10 minutes from Charlotte Amalie and 10 minutes from Red Hook. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe where the house is. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils for any cooking you might want to do. My best advice is to go to KMart for your food and supplies. I wish we had done that first. The beach that is within walking distance of the house (Lime Tree at Bluebeard's Resort) is great although we didn't spend much time there as we had a goal of seeing 10 beaches in 10 days. Bluebeard's had little activities like Bingo and Movie night each night so we would go down there for that at the end of the day. Drinks are cheap, food is expensive literally everywhere. Bring the beach chairs from the house because every beach you'll go to almost will charge you $5-$10 per chair to rent them. The view from the deck on the house is the perfect spot to have your coffee in the morning and start your day right and then have dinner at night while you watch the sun set and cruise ships head out.
I could go on for hours about this trip and all the tips we learned along the way but half of the fun was figuring it out. We had the time of our lives on this vacation and we can't wait to come back!!!!
