The Quarters has a porch with a dining table and a grill, a living area with a kitchenette, a large bedroom with a king bed, two bathes and a washer/dryer unit. For your relaxation, there is also a POOL on site. We are handicapped accessible and one of the few properties on island with no stairs!

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!
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!!
What a fantastic week! This apartment has a stunning view! Joe and Marcia went well above and beyond our expectations to make our stay perfect! Any questions were answered promptly. What gracious hosts! They even cooked dinner for us the evening of our arrival! We arrived as "guests" and left as "friends". The apartment is immaculate. The restaurant recommendations, dive centers, deep sea fishing were spot on. We would definitely recommend staying here! Sitting out on the covered veranda, watching the beautiful green parrots dart around the tree tops was a delightful surprise. This really IS paradise! If you're just thinking about going to St. Thomas, think no more. GO! And stay here!
