Rented from Sam again (she rocks) and stayed on the east end. The house, views, pool and amenities are perfect. The BEST part is it is a 2 minute walk to the beach. The beach has a Cruzan Beach grill that opens at 8am daily (tell Nate we said hi). Also has a dive shop. So just bring your towels and credit card and tan the day away. Red Hook is a quick 5 dollar cab ride away, so even though you have plenty of parking for a rental you can skip it if you choose. Our best stay ever on all of VI.

House is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay at Secret Haven Villa! The house is amazing. Newly renovation above and beyond our expectations! We had adults and kids. The pool is perfect for both. The home is just above a resort with beach bars and restaurants. Great to walk down to for dinner and drinks. Would go back in a heartbeat!

OH, What A Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed eight fabulous nights at Secret Haven Villa vacationing with the family to celebrate our fortieth wedding anniversary. The villa's accommodations, amenities and location were second to none! We could not have been happier with our home away from home.

The villa was updated and clean. The bedrooms were spacious and the on-suite bathrooms provided both convenience and privacy for us, our adult children and their spouses/significant others. The newly renovated kitchen and the living area were perfect for preparing meals, gathering to eat, playing games, and engaging in casual conversation. The home's decor made us feel like we were staying in an island paradise.

The villa's amenities met all our needs and the view from the deck, master and living area was simply amazing. The pool, grill, putting green and chipping surface were all put to good use during our stay. But for us, the biggest asset was the location. You could easily walk down to Secret Harbor beach and take a short ride into Red Hook for the St. John ferry, restaurants and shopping.

Samantha greeted us at the villa and acclimated us with the property and the operation of its many resources. Samantha also served as a convenient property manager and a concierge for our stay. She responded quickly to any needs and shared helpful information regarding beaches, restaurants, shopping and sight-seeing.

We would love to make a return to visit to Secret Haven Villa in the future, perhaps with some grandchildren.

John from New Jersey.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much John! You were lovely to have at Secret Haven. I was so honored that you chose the villa for such a great occasion to gather your awesome family. I wish you many more years of happiness and I hope I get the opportunity to host you again with an even larger family (grandchildren!) in the future.

Best Carribean vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from two glorious weeks at Secret Haven with our adult children and grandchildren. The villa is beautiful, pictures don’t do it justice. The villa is clean and has all the amenities you could want including central air. The pool, with floats and noodles, grill, porches with a variety of furniture in the shade, putting green and beautiful landscaping made the outdoors as inviting as the villa.

Sam met us upon arrival, provided helpful information, answered our questions and made a few suggestions of places to eat and shop. She checked in periodically to be sure everything was going well and was always quick to respond to our messages and attend to our needs.

Secret Harbour beach is a short walk and had great snorkeling. You can rent chairs and umbrellas, however, there are trees on the beach so even with little ones there was plenty of shade. A short ride away was Lindquist Beach (which was our favorite). There are picnic tables, a bigger beach with powder white sand, plenty of shade and sun, great snorkeling and it was never very crowded.

Enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend Secret Haven Villa. Hope to return again.

Owner's Response: Steve & Claudette, Thank you so much for the review! You were amazing guests and it was nice getting to know you. You truly cared for the villa as if it were your own home. When you checked out it was as if you had hired a cleaning crew! I would love to have you back to enjoy Secret Haven and St Thomas. You always have a warm welcome waiting here on island. All the best to your beautiful family and the (so well behaved) grandchildren. I hope the stay made life long memories for them.

Absolutely Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures just don't do it justice. You can hear the sounds of the waves and see the water from the master bedroom, wrap around deck, and the pool/ deck area. The pictures actually make it look farther away to the water and beach. It's not!!! It's so close. (down hill walk to the most beautiful beach in St. Thomas with white powder sand and turquoise waters, up hill on the way back, 3 min walk. The new renovation and decor is just perfectly done. Sam was a pleasure to work with and always easily available by text. Beautiful floral garden off the pool area made for some great pictures! We used the pool and grill which was perfect for an evening in. There are 3 bedrooms on the main level. Then downstairs there is the additional apartment with another locked off bedroom. We had 3 couples on this trip with just the upstairs 3 bedrooms. We all felt like we had enough privacy and many areas to sit together or apart in private areas indoor and out. After exploring many areas and beaches around St. Thomas in person, we all felt me made the best decision to stay here where we did at Secret Haven!!! You won't be disappointed it was absolutely stunning! The only disadvantage for 3 couples is that 2 of the bathrooms were beautiful walk in showers and the 3rd bathroom was a little more basic. However that 3rd bedroom then has a walkout doors to the pool area. All six of us said we would stay here again next time! I am not usually one to write a review. I had to this time because Sam was so great to work with and the pictures just don't do this place justice! Simply beautiful, relaxing, and a wonderful vacation! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home with us for the week!
