|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
Captain's Quarters was truly a labor of love. It look us three years to build and was completed in December of 2014. We are located on the beautiful north shores of St Thomas. The villa faces NE so we enjoy warm tropical breezes most all year. The view is phenomenal. We sit above five bays and have an expansive view of the Atlantic ocean. You can only find that true aqua color here in our crystal clear waters. We have over 30 varieties of tropical trees and flowers on the grounds and enjoy the hummingbirds and parrots that frequent them.
Our location is considered rural or as the locals call it "the bush". This means we are away from the hustle and bustle of town but close enough to enjoy our shopping and restaurants. You don't hear traffic noise here, just the waves breaking on the rocks, the squawk of parrots and the song of the "coki frogs" at night. All ocean views on the island are spectacular but ours are not hindered with power lines or neighbor's houses. We have an unobstructed spectacular view!
Did we mention the breezes keep away the bugs so dining on your porch at night is a treat? There is casual seating on the porch in addition to a dining table and grill. Inside the Quarters has a comfortable sitting area for those in the mood for a little TV while enjoying the view. We offer a 47in HDTV with cable, premium stations and Netflix. The kitchenette has custom cabinets, a granite countertop and a stainless steel frig and microwave.. We do not have a stove/oven. We do have a NuWave Induction Portable Cooktop. It's such fun to cook on! It's a product so new on the market we've left the instruction booklet in the cupboard.
The Master Suite has a king bed has a great mattress and several pillows to choose from enabling a good nights rest. The en suite bathroom has a double vanity and a walk in travertine stone shower with a rain head.
The washer and dryer are conveniently located in the hallway next to our 2nd full bath. No need to take home dirty clothes!
Joe and I live on the property also but we designed our home with vacationers in mind. You'll have your own space with a private entrance and personal parking. We are handicapped accessible and one of the few properties on the island with NO STAIRS and level grounds. We are here and available to insure you have the best vacation possible in our tropical paradise. We're happy to help with directions or answer any questions you may have. Joe has sampled every burger on the island and is eager to offer his opinions! Our goal is for you to have a great time on St Thomas!

#3879113 is a the unit you are viewing now.
#3879114 is our two bedroom, 2 bath.
We have a beautiful courtyard with a POOL! While you're here, the pool is a great place to relax and cool off. It's only used by guests in our two units. You'll see Joe cleaning it every morning and if we're invited, serving his famous rum punch at cocktail time!
"Honorable Mention" goes to our GENERATOR. Being on an island we have a limited power grid to draw from. Consequently, at times we find ourselves without electricity. Joe is not much for roughing it or having his favorite scifi program interrupted so when the lights go out, our GENERATOR goes on!
If you've searched for a place to stay while on your vacation, you already know how beautiful our island is.
All beaches are open to the public, don't limit yourself just to one. Each offers something different.
It's so fun to eat here. The restaurants are many and their menus unique. Enjoy the local cuisine from a food truck or eat in a five star establishment.
Consider renting a car. Driving here is an experience all it's own. With a car you can explore the island. We're only 14 miles long, 3 wide. We drive slowly, anything over 25 mpr is too fast. Come and go as you please. When someone waits for you in traffic, a slight beep means THANK YOU!
Joe and I are retired. We are living our dream. We'd like to share it with you!
Joe was born and raised in New York. He attended an all boys high school and played varsity football as tackle. After graduation he volunteered in the US Marine Corp and served in Viet Nam. After retirement, he moved to New Mexico and attended the University of Albq majoring in business. Joe was owner of several service related businesses in Farmington, New Mexico. He enjoyed organizing dive vacations for large parties and traveling to exotic places. In preparation for civilian retirement, he attended PADI PRO DIVE in Florida and graduated as a Master Scuba Diver Instructor. After moving to the USVI, he attended Sea School and became a licensed boat Captain. Thus, CAPTAIN JOE
Joe and Marcia Wilkins purchased this apartment in 2014
We have lived on St Thomas for 10 years. The WEATHER here is hands down, unbeatable. We love the hues of the OCEAN, especially the turquoise you only find in the Caribbean. We enjoy the diversity of LANDSCAPES. The PEOPLE of St Thomas are of many cultures and nations. Our CUSTOM is to greet all with a 'good morning' or 'good afternoon'. It's a great icebreaker when you enter a doctors office and greet a room full of waiting patients. We enjoy outdoor DINING and sampling our various 5 Star eateries. Top of our list are all the AQUATIC activities available on our island. The crystal clear , warm waters are perfect for boating, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, paddle boarding. kayaking, canoeing etc. etc. etc.
We looked at homes to purchase for two years. We spent one year looking at lots.
Marcia had a requirement list with no compromises. We had to find a piece of property with a fantastic view, no lines or wires blocking that view, decent roads and
facing northeast to take advantage of the sea breezes. We spent a year with an architect and it took two years to build. Welcome to CAPTAIN'S QUARTERS!
Our 3-week stay at Captain's Quarters was truly unforgettable and packed with many special memories. Joe & Marcia Wilkins, the owners, are very gracious and hospitable and made our stay very relaxing and comfortable. They are so accommodating and go above and beyond to make you feel special. Joe met us at the airport to show us the way to the property. It is nestled in a residential area and would be a challenge to find otherwise. The property is in excellent condition, immaculate, extremely well maintained and picture perfect. The units are fully stocked with everything you need for the beach, games to play in the condo, all kitchen items, pool accessories/toys, gym equipment, etc. Joe & Marcia have truly thought of everything you need to enjoy vacation. They are very knowledgeable about all the island happenings and helped us make the most of our days by giving us tips on the best beaches, which days will be the least crowded, best snorkeling spots & restaurants, how to get around, etc. Joe even supplied our snorkel gear for the entire 3 weeks and went with us to the beach to give our granddaughters snorkel lessons. I daresay you will not get that level of attention anywhere else. The view from the property is outstanding and breathtaking! Every morning waking up to the amazing view of pristine water and surrounding bays/islands was such a treat. The landscaping at Captain's Quarters is beautifully maintained. You must rent a car to get around to the beaches, shops, restaurants, excursions, though many things are only minutes away. This property offers seclusion and privacy. I must comment on Lucy, their very sweet and docile dog. She happily greeted us each time we drove up, is very calm and has a thing for iguanas! My two granddaughters loved petting and spending time with Lucy - we all did. We highly recommend staying at Captain's Quarters. Joe & Marcia have big hearts for their guests and have become our friends. We are looking forward to future visits!
The apartment and grounds are in pristine condition. Joe and Marcia are friendly and helped make our holiday a memorable one. Thank you!!
Not a better place to stay while visiting St Thomas. Owners have thought of every detail to make this the perfect home away from home get a way. Everything is new and feels luxurious. Marcia and Joe are very special people and you will be more than happy you stayed at this CLEAN, UPSCALE and IMPECCABLE villa! We miss you Joe and Marcia and Miss Lucy too!
What a truly wonderful place to stay in S.t Thomas! My best friend and I have made it to St. Thomas now 7 times and every time we have stayed in a different part of the island as to find out what our favorite area was. I truly felt the northern side of the island was where I wanted to one day live until we stayed with Joe and Marcia!!! This home truly has EVERYTHING you didn't even know you wanted/needed. The King size bed was extremely comfortable and we felt like we were in our private oasis but were just minutes away from downtown and the harbor.
Walking up to their beautiful new home everything is immaculate and well manicured nothing less than the Ritz. The views were amazing and even though the gorgeous apartment is beautifully decorated but the air conditioning is never even needed. Perched up on the hills overlooking so many beach areas and breathtaking views of the BVI's we found a wonderful new secret of the locals' at Hull Bay.
Joe and Marcia are very well versed with the island and assist you an any possible way from food suggestions to even diving help or lessons. (Joe is a dive instructor). I haven't even began to talk about the staff.... ok well it consists of one.... her name is Lucy and I can honestly say I miss her just as much as I miss waking up inside their beautiful home to a beautiful view.
We now will only stay in style and comfort at an incredible price for such a great piece of paradise!!! Thanks again Joe and Marcia and see you in a few months.

It is always risky to judge a place based on pictures. However, in this case, the property is as beautiful if not more so than the pictures. It is new and well-kept and has everything you could need. My fiance and I felt at home in every aspect and would highly recommend it. The view was breath-taking every time we saw it and made it very difficult to leave. The kitchen was stocked with all of the supplies we needed to cook and make drinks. The pool area was perfect for laying in the sun and relaxing. Joe and Marcia were very friendly and helped us with anything we needed. You definitely need to rent a car because, while the island is small, there are no direct routes and you will spend more on taxiing than the rental. Overall, we would highly recommend the Captain's Quarters!
My husband and I spent 5 wonderful weeks at Captain's Quarters. Owners Marcia and Joe were sooo nice and very receptive to all our needs. Joe even set up fitness equipment when he learned we were exercise enthusiasts! Joe also greeted us at the airport and led us right to the grocery store which was fabulous so we could relax the next day and enjoy the surroundings on our first day. Renting a car is a must since beaches, Red Hook, and town are at least a 20-30 minute ride. The villa is on the North side of the island and was breathtaking. Immaculate and spacious, it was perfect for us! Grounds are gorgeous and well maintained. We absolutely loved coming back "home" after a day of exploring! Lucy, our new four legged friend was always ready to greet us!
We had every breakfast and some dinners out on the patio with views of Maegan's Bay, Hull Bay, and Neltjeberg Beach. Very quiet and relaxing! Our favorite restaurants were Hook, Line and Sinker in Frenchtown, FishTails and XO Bistro in Red Hook, and Kokopelli Cafe.
Spent lots of time swimming, snorkeling, and golfing at Mahogany Run Golf Course which was a great course. St John and St Croix excursions were great day trips and easy to do. St Croix is only accessed by Sea Plane at this time.
Highly recommend a stay at Captains Quarters!!
