I am originally from Canada and I now reside in Boston and Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Villa Blue Sky is my retreat to relax and enjoy the warm sun with family and friends. When I am not there it is yours to enjoy! My sister and brother in law live across the street from Blue Sky and manage the vacation rentals. They will check you in, answer any questions and help you out if you need anything during your stay!
Joan deLugo purchased this house in 1997
After visiting my sister who lives across the street from Villa Blue Sky I bought the house in 1997. Blue Sky has become the get together spot for family and friends. Blue Sky is smack dab in the middle of the best vacation area of St. Thomas for beaches, restaurants, and the ferry to St. John.
Blue Sky is located in the most convenient areas of St. Thomas. Halk mile to Secret harbor resort which is open to the public and offers the best snorkeling in the bay. My sister Joanie lives across the street from Blue Sky and can check you in and give you some local tips for your stay!
My family and I stayed here for a family reunion in July 2015 and this was the best property we have ever stayed at. We loved the open concept living/dining/ kitchen area as it allowed al to be together for entertaining.
The kids could take the 10 minute walk to Secret Harbor on the quiet street so it gave us lots of flexibility.
Our favorite part was the dining alfresco on the patio admiring the beautiful view to the ocean.
I have already rebooked to return with a group of girlfriends.
Blue Sky is a wonderful home base for your trip to the Virgin Islands. It sits on Ridge Road, overlooking Vessup Bay off the back porch with views of the Caribbean out the front door and across the street. The neighborhood is quiet, with only the occasional traffic passing on the way to or from the Secret Harbor beach and resort just down the hill. While the drive back downtown is quick, you will also be minutes away from the Red Hook ferry terminal and easy access to many other islands.
You will find the house clean, secure, and well equipped. With a full kitchen (including a nicely stocked spice pantry) and a grocery store just minutes away, you do not need to rely on restaurant food if you do not want to. There are appropriate security features but the area is so safe and quiet that they must simply be there almost exclusively for deterrence.
Joanie was 100% honest and cordial in her dealings. She was helpful and available without being intrusive, and she gave generously of her local knowledge. She even provided us an excellent reference for a babysitter.
Rent Blue Sky with confidence.
If you can take your eyes off the harbor, spend some time studying the trees below the back porch. You might just find an iguana or two soaking up some sun.
Ludy's Place is a food truck that is parked to the left of the Food Center parking lot as you look at it from the road. The ladies there serve up delicious food at a reasonable price. It was so good we ate there twice.
Check the cruise ship schedules online. While we were there, Saturday was a no-cruise-ship day so we ventured downtown to walk around. We stumbled onto a great open-air market and got to enjoy a small taste of callaloo while listening to one of the great Caribbean sounds: Men playing dominos and arguing about it. I rarely feel so happily far from home.
We stayed at this property Thanksgiving week and because I heavily rely on reviews when choosing properties, I am providing some pros and cons.
Pros: Location is really good and near the Red Hook ferry to St. John. There is easy access to supermarket, stores, restaurants but you will need a car to get to these places but not far away. There is a very close beach - Secret Harbour with some very good restaurants. The beach is OK. We ended up going over to the Ritz Carlton for lunch and stayed at their beach which was much nicer. We enjoyed the internet and coffee cafe directly across from the house. It had just opened 6 weeks ago and the owner was very nice. Communication with Joanie, house manager, was good from the booking to the arrival and the house had a lot of the items you would need especially if you wanted to cook or needed to clean. The description is accurate, just be clear though that the house is not air conditioned! After the first day, we adjusted, but the first night was hot along with the Mosquitos, it was an adjustment for sure.
Cons: For the price, I would consider other properties and their amenities and try to get on a beach property. There were two bathrooms and in one of the bathrooms the hot water faucet did not work and was not offered to be fixed after letting Joanie know. We had to get hot water from the tub in that bathroom. The welcome binder from Joanie stated that daily complimentary housekeeping was provided. However, this is not correct. The property was clean when we arrived and they clean only after you leave. Also, if you need to use a dryer, which you will if you stay, 4+ days! there are messages all over asking you not to do so due to the cost of electricity. Again, with what you are paying each night, I am not sure if this is necessary. Also, below the house, they rent out apartments or rooms so be sure to ask beforehand who will be on the property. We never heard the lady below us, who Joanie told us about the day we arrived, but if you have small kids like we did that liked to play around the property, it is nice to know beforehand. Overall, it was nice and clean but felt a bit dated and worn. If we return, we would more than likely look for another property.
My wife Judith and I recently returned from a most relaxing two week vacation on the island of St. Thomas with the spacious Blue Sky Villa as our "Caribbean Home!" The Villa was just as depicted with regard to appearance, amenities, and location! Blue Sky Villa was extremely well maintained, and very clean when we arrived! The expansive balcony overlooking Red Hook Marina, (less than five minute drive away) provided magnificent views, comfortable breezes, and a wonderful way to enjoy morning coffee, or evening glasses of wine!
The Villa is very tastefully decorated with "Caribbean themes" and colors and the furnishings and bed that we used in the Master Bedroom was most comfortable! The kitchen was well-stocked and boasted every amenity! Diane, the owner, and her sister, Joanie, were extremely gracious, kind, and helpful in providing recommendations, not only about the locale, but the entire island of St. Thomas and the neighboring island of St John, that enhanced our entire vacation experience!
Secret Harbor Beach (wonderful for snorkeling with it's calm, clear water) is a short ten minute walk away! The villa is located less than a 30 minute drive to the magnificent Mahogany Run Golf Course (featuring the famous Caribbean "Devil's Triangle" Holes 13/14/15,) and the marvelous Magen's Bay Beach (Judith's Favorite) for sunbathing and swimming!
The fun-loving town of Red Hook with it's Happy Hour Bars and Ferry Port to St John's is less than a five minutes drive! Pesci's offers exceptional fine Italian dining and Fishtails delectable fresh seafood!
Once again, our stay at the Blue Sky Villa was wonderful! The villa has a very nice flat screen television, and although it did nothing to detract from our stay, please note that at the time we stayed, there was no hookup for "television programming" of any kind-- No news or local channels or cable TV. We were however able to watch DVD movies that we brought with us, and there were 20-25 other movie offerings available as a "DVD movie library" at the Villa! We were able to enjoy the Super Bowl
live at Molly Malones Pub in Red Hook with many other diehard football fans!
The WIFI/Internet connnection was superb and deeply appreciated! We were very easily able to SKYPE to our family members back in Wisconsin!
In closing, ...Thank You so very much, Diane, Joanie, and Robert for your gracious hospitality , and for making the Blue Sky Villa available as our "Caribbean Home" on beautiful St Thomas!
We selected Blue Sky based on the location, but had an excellent stay for many other reasons... we had three couples and the accomodations were perfect. The house had everything we needed and we have only compliments and accolades for the stay and the value we received.
I visit St. Thomas frequently (4-6) times per year and will stay here if I can from now on.
Two years ago we stayed in the Red Hook District of St. Thomas at Larimar at Stonehouse for three weeks and had a super time. This year we wanted a little more space for our 10 night stay so decided to book Blue Sky across the street overlooking American Yaught Harbor!
These two properties are owned and managed by the same family and once again Joanie and Robert made our stay as perfect as we could have expected! Blue Sky had all the amenities as listed in the VRBO site and more. The house was clean, well maintained and safe! We had another terrific time and would highly recommend this property and the professionalism of Joanie and Robert! Book and you won't be disappointed !! It's close to all St. Thomas has to offer!
The Blue Sky is a beautiful place with an amazing view and more amenities than even mentioned. Will certainly stay there again because of the closeness to Sunset Harbor and the town of Red Hook. Only thing I would suggest is more larger utensils, can't drink the water, and maybe better (sturdier) deck chairs.
Blue Sky is located on Ridge Road, a popular local as well as tourist walking neighborhood. You can easily walk to Secret Harbor or exercise along Ridge Road.
