Guestbook comments from the owner

If you are looking a wonderful place to stay in St. Thomas, I would highly recommend Secret Gardens.This house is perfect for any type of vacation.There were 3 of us on this trip–all ladies; youngest was 18. This house is perfectly situated to capture the beauty that is St. Thomas. The views from the house are breathtaking. The house itself has been masterfully thought out. It brings in the essence of the magnificent surroundings into the house. For instance, there is a huge rock that starts in the kitchen on the main level, then to the half bath and then it goes down to the lower level bathroom which becomes the rock shower. The shower head actually comes out of the rock. There are several levels of covered verandah so you can maximize your enjoyment of the great outdoors. There is this gorgeous tree which part of the verandah is built around. To enjoy more awesome scenery, we took a nice jaunt to Picara Point. This is not to be missed if you are staying at Secret Gardens. This stunning house has a mural of the idyllic surroundings in the dining/living room area. The master bedroom on the main level and the adjoining bathroom are huge and very comfortable. This bathroom has an enormous walk in shower for 2, a gigantic tub and double sinks. I am very particular about bathrooms and this one more than met my standards/expectations. The kitchen was well-appointed as well. It comes more than fully equipped so you can whip up a gourmet meal. Cassandra with Passion Fruit Chefs came in and prepared a wonderful dinner for us one night. If you have the chance, I would highly recommend having her prepare a meal or 2. The infinity pool is another special feature. In the pool,you can easily lose yourself in the beautiful surroundings. We received a real treat when we met the owner, Werner, who happened to be in town. He was such a delight and an ace in suggesting things to do and places to eat. He did an outstanding job ensuring that our stay would be wonderful. One of the most memorable things we were able to do was to go boating with Werner–not just any boat,but a speed boat.Normally I am not one to go boating, but we all agreed that it was fantastic experience and one that we would readily do again.The house is located near Magens Bay which is one of the most beautiful beaches beautiful beaches in the world-go enjoy the sunset.This house has so many extraordinary and sophisticated features that the pictures do not do it justice. We would definitely stay here again.

Carrabean wonderland

  • 5 of 5

Best villa on St. Thomas with incredible views and spectacular interior design. Everything the four of us hoped for including snorkeling right out front. The owner/host Warner is the very accommodating and can arrange for any needs. We will come back again.

Secluded Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Booked as a surprise for my wife's birthday. Werner and his staff are superbly professional. Not simply a rental home but was a hosted vacation experience. All the small details were taken care of from food and necessities to reservations and experiences/excursions. One day was spent on the host's boat Triple Smooth with Captain Ocean island hopping. To say the villa and grounds are breathtaking is grossly underestimating Secret Garden's beauty and tranquility. Private chef dinners and massages were arranged with ease and made our experience memorable. Any request to make your trip more special can be coordinated with you hardly needing to utter a word. Werner's knowledge of the island also made exploring and shopping so much easier. Werner went the extra mile to make us feel at home and this a trip of a lifetime. Do not book anywhere else. You will be vastly disappointed.

Paradise...enough said!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Secret Garden is Paradise... enough said!! One MUST experience this little piece of heaven! My family and my fiance and I traveled to this place I call Paradise for our wedding. We had not organized a thing and Werner and his staff were more than amazing! We had the wedding every woman (couple) dreams of! Werner treated me as a Queen and my family just the same! I can't thank Werner and his staff enough for a memory that was created for a life time! We arrived and everything was handled. Every detail was taken care of before you could think of it! The villa is breath taking. The view puts you in a trance. Listening to the waves crash day and night couldn't have better music! We visited St John's one day and snorkeled with the sea turtles. We went on a day boat excursion with Werner and our captain Fernando island hoping the British Isles. The water was so beautiful, just like bath or swimming pool water. We enjoyed the Rum and sun and water and excellent food continuously! What an amazing boat and day! I recommend the chef as he cooked us a fabulous breakfast the morning of our wedding! We were married at Megan bay beach at sunset and our photographer was amazing! Our minister told us our marriage certificate was only good for 1 yr so we have to return to renew it annually! We can't wait! Secret Gardens is truly Paradise and I recommend it for the comfort and enjoyment and memories that it brings! Like I said...Werner your amazing! Thank you so so much!! Memories were created for a lifetime! It was the dream wedding every woman (couple) dreams of! Perfection in every aspect! Paradise.... enough said!

Perfect St. Thomas Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Secret Garden was the perfect girls getaway. The Villa was beautiful with a fully equipted gormet kitchen. Although there are plenty of restaurants in town, the Villa was beautiful and relaxing; we cooked meals out on the balcony using the grill and loved every minute of it. Werner was the perfect host. He had a driver meet us at the airport and although we rented a car, we followed him to the villa to make sure we had no trouble finding it. Keep in mind that driving in ST. Thomas is stressful, they drive on the left. Werner made sure we had what we needed. We spent a day over on St Johns snorkeling Cinnamon Bay, Honeymoon Bay, and Truck Bay. We took a catamaran to the British Virgin Islands where we explored the Baths and did some fantastic snorkeling. We bought at groceries at a little grocery store in Red Hook, I believe the name was Food Town. That said Werner is happy to do your shopping for you and considering the stress in driving around the island-I would suggest you take him up on that!! Werner will also make arrangements to get you anyplace you want to go! Again I would suggest you take him up on it....we drove and we survived but honestly, driving there is quite an adventure of its own! I can highly recommend Secret Garden as a perfect getaway. It was a vacation we hope to repeat, we loved every minute of it🐠🌊

Perfect Getaway Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We were celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary and this was, with out a doubt, one of the best vacations ever. This house is amazing and everything that you could hope for in a vacation house. From the million dollar view, to the gourmet kitchen, and the perfect decor, not to mention the TRIPLE SMOOTH (a 36 foot, triple engine Contender boat), THIS IS PARADISE found! If there is any way that you can manage to get there, GET THERE. We took the boat to the Soggy Dollar bar with the property owner Werner Scott and Captain Ocean. It was the best day on the water that we've had in a very long time. We had provisions delivered so that we had food for the first night of arrival and a private chef prepare our anniversary dinner that it was delightful. To sum it all up, Treat yourself like ROYALTY and book at the SECRET GARDENS.

Perfect Carribean Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I last month stayed at Secret Gardens for our second time. The first being 9 years ago for our 25th anniversary. This time we brought close friends of ours to repay them for their kindness to my mother while she was alive. It was awesome seeing them walk thru the villa with their iPad taking a video and oohing. I told Werner the owner it was like taking two little kids to Disneyworld! We went out on Werner's 36 ft. boat one day and went to The Soggy Dollar Bottom Bar, Foxy's, and Sandy Spit, where the Corona beer Christmas commercial was shot, awesome day! We've travelled all over the Carribean but St. Thomas and St. John remain our favorite places. World class beaches, beautiful weather,good food and jewelry bargains galore. We strongly recommend Secret Gardens to anyone interested in a true vacation in Paradise!!!
