About Andy Smith
Growing up in England, I always dreamed of having a home by the sea. I wanted a place my family and friends from cold England could take refuge in. And this is my dream home, at the water's edge where family and friends come to share in the joy of life.

An unforgettable vacation in a beautiful setting
Thanks Andy and Amber for making our stay memorable!
We used the villa as a vacation house for 5 nights in February for a birthday/anniversary combo trip. It was great for the 9 adults in our group. Amber helped us by giving great advice on who to use for taxi service, a boat excursion to BVI, and a caterer to provision the house with drinks, appetizers and groceries for our initial arrival. All of the recommendations were great, professional, on time, and accommodating. Andy met us at the house a little early for check-in while the cleaning crew was finishing up. He showed us around and explained how things worked and some dos and don’ts. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. It is close enough to walk to beaches at the Ritz, but you will want a car or taxi to nearby Red Hook for dining, groceries and bars there. Andy asked, and we were willing to help, to feed the dogs in the side yard. It is fenced off, and only accesses the house from one of the lower level bedroom patios that can stay closed. They are two German shepherds, are friendly, and we rarely heard them bark.
Andy was very helpful throughout our stay when we had questions. He helped us raise the pool temp when it was getting chilly-- what a difference a heated pool makes! We spent a lot of time on the pool deck, which is a beautiful view of Great Bay and Great St James Island. I do recommend keeping the doors and windows closed since even though it is tempting to open all doors to let the island breezes blow through, mosquitos are always common in the tropics and did come in when we let them. The bedroom listings of queen vs king were a little different than the listing showed, but all were very comfortable for our group.
Our guests staying downstairs loved how quiet the house was and how well sound insulated it is. Some of them slept so late we had to wake them up! It certainly appears that the hurricanes didn’t touch this house and grounds, which has a lot of beautiful landscaping and flowers. We felt the house was perfect for us and we recommend it for a group of couples for an unforgettable vacation in a beautiful setting.
Stunning villa and amazing week
Although mildly concerned before our arrived due to Hurricane Irma, we couldn’t have been happier with our week, the Villa, Andy the owner and Amber our wedding planner. We easily accommodated 17 people with room to spare.
We were a family of 11 (7 adults and 4 teenagers) celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary. The house was beautiful and clean with amazing views. Andy (owner) was very helpful and gave us some great tips and was responsive to any requests (which we had few as the house was in great working order). The house is set away from crowds and is very private. We felt safe. The home is gated. There are two dogs of the owners that are kept on the far side of the property which added a sense of security. They were incredibly sweet dogs which we could have ignored but many of our party were dog lovers so had to spend a little time (outdoors) with them every day. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, each with private baths plus a half bath off the kitchen. The kitchen and living room were spacious with amazing views with the many windows. The kitchen was well equipped and there was an outdoor grill that we utilized twice for dinners. The downstairs has 3 large bedrooms with their own bathrooms and the one room with 2 double beds has another kitchen/sofa area. There is a large laundry room with extra towels and bedding. We honestly wanted for nothing while we were there except for food. The house is located in a great place on Cabrita Point (east end) with beautiful views of Christmas Bay. You are walking distance from the Ritz Carlton and a 5' drive from Red Hook that has the ferry to other islands, a marina and many restaurants. There is a grocery store 10' drive away. We rented two vans and it was easy to get around the immediate area (parts of the islands were a little tricky to maneuver in a minivan as the roads are narrow and steep). The house is on the water and the teenagers used snorkeling equipment at the house to do some snorkeling right at the house. There are beaches all over the islands that are a short drive away. The infinity pool was beautiful and the whole family spent a lot of time just hanging out on the large patio and in the pool. My personal favorite part was the night - each evening we would sit on the outdoor lounge furniture under the incredible stars enjoying a glass of wine, the sound of the ocean waves and the breeze. We had a small wedding vow renewal ceremony that we booked through Blue Sky Ceremonies at the home. We had a professional photographer, the house lends itself to amazing backgrounds for pictures! Overall the house is amazing! We all want to go back, thank you Andy and Amber!
PERFECTION FOR MY MILESTONE BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!!
Twelve of us (six couples) rented the villa for a week while vacationing in St. Thomas. The home is well appointed. More space than needed for all twelve of us to spend an entire week together. We were greeted upon arrival and were given a tour of the home - we were shown how to operate doors/pool/security gate/etc. The entire stay was beyond fantastic. We sailed, snorkled, boated visiting BVI, dined in, dined out, had a catered BIRTHDAY PARTY CELEBRATION with photographer, florist and steel pan player one night in the terrace area, visited a number of beautiful beaches, visted St. John, swam in the infinity pool daily/nighlty, drank, sang and danced each night. We did not want to leave. Andy, the owner, stopped by each day and was very helpful in answering any of our questions during our stay. I would definitely recommend this home to large groups. I would defintely go back and stay at the villa in a heartbeat! Wish I was there right now!
Annual family villa vacation
We rented for 3 weeks, and it was perfect. Our large family has been doing villa vacations for 20 years on various islands. This was the best maintained and equipped villa we have stayed in. The owners were unbelievably responsive and helpful. The location was lovely. I would give this villa more than 5 stars - it deserves them.
A Fairytale Wedding & Family Vacation
The villa absolutely exceeded all expectations!! It is more beautiful and breathtaking in person!! The pool is wonderful, we were in it all week. A refreshing end to the day. The house is very clean, organized and amazingly equipped with everything you would ever need. Andy and Jane were incredibly warm, welcoming and very attentive the entire time. They went above and beyond bringing us what we needed daily to be comfortable and content in the house. Jane even bought us new knives to ensure my chef husband-to-be was well equipped. The level of hospitality provided by the couple was top notch and warmer than that at any hotel. Our experience at the villa as a family, the time spent together (but not to close because it's huge), and the memories created make the stay here worth every single penny. And if you can fill the space it's actually not much more than a hotel room. We got married here and are already planning to return in a few years. I would highly recommend it to any brides to be. The perfect spot for your fairytale wedding!
Located on the east end of St. Thomas on Cabrita point, this 5 bedroom home is conveniently located with several nearby beaches, restaurants, activities and attractions.
