Fantastic Home, Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful.The owner is extremely responsive and the caretaker is amazing. She picked us up from the ferry dock, waited while we rented a car, and then we followed her up to the house. Excellent service all the way around! The home is clean and well equipped. We used the grill and ate by candlelight on the patio one night- so romantic! Before we booked we didn't see photos of a family room and we were a bit concerned about that, but there are leather sofas in a very comfortable family room with satellite TV. The wifi is excellent. We will most certainly book here again. We have stayed in VRBO homes all over the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, and Belize and this home ranks in our top five best experiences. Our island adventures were so fun. Hiking, snorkeling, shopping and great food. The photo opportunities on the island are astounding! I have an album full of great captures, The locals are friendly and the roads are easy to navigate. We rented a jeep and freely wandered from one end of the island and back almost every day. There is no downside to this rental.

Don't rent this house.....

  • 1 of 5

Arrived to the villa and was greeted but a lovely property manager that helped us find our way up to the Villa! Amazing views from house! We arrived at the Villa at our designated time and the cleaning lady was still working and a strange man was sitting on the couch watching a movie and didn't move! The cleaning lady left towels in the washer and dryer for me to finish! Counters were filthy! The house needs a lot more than TLC! The yard is trashed! The sliding doors were very hard to maneuver, handles missing! The screen doors do not work well! The pool was green and filled with frog eggs for three days before the owner had someone come and put chlorine tablets in the pool! There is only AC in bedrooms as noted on property site! There is construction going on in every direction around house! The subdivision road to the house is a mess! Anyone with children should not rent this place! I've stayed in many other rental homes through the years and I am aware of the wear and tear that happens on houses In tropical climates! This is neglect, not wear and tear from previous renters. Island is amazing! We will be back but won't be renting this home!

Owner's Response: I want to start out by saying I strive to provide a great villa at a great value. I have owned this villa for 18 years and constantly fix or repair renter damage. I was in aware of any of these issues and rely on on island help to notify me or correct. That being said as we speak the pool is drained and being refinished to new and there is painting and new bedding and drapes being installed. Will be done by July 30th. As far as this guest review they were caught with more guests than they paid for and will not pay for the additional guests, the same as stealing. I feel that this is the kind of people they are and the review is very in accurate. Please read previous reviews from a couple weeks ago and none of these issues. As far as construction that is out of our hands and if neighboringing lots in the subdivision decide to build that's not anything we can control. Hope this clarifies the villa

Met every expectation and then some

  • 5 of 5

We were thoroughly impressed with this villa! The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable, the A/C was very cold, the screens were all intact, the kitchen had every thing we needed, the sound system was easy to use, constant wifi, etc. We LOVED the view and spent hours just relaxing by the pool.

I agree with other reviewers about renting a jeep. We would definitely rent this villa again.

Don't pass this one up.

  • 5 of 5

We've vacationed on the island every year for more than 10 years. This is one of our top picks. The view to St.Thomas is beautiful, especially at night. The bedrooms are above grade level and not in the basement. (Yes, this is a big deal. I haven't had a below grade room yet that has not had a musty smell!) The master bedroom bed was incredibly comfortable. (You won't find that too often either.) Great outdoor deck. Great pool. It's also true that the A/C and fridge are working quite well. The remote control for the A/C came in handy. The drive to town is nice and short. Go ahead and book it.

Place was ok...needs better description

  • 3 of 5

I had no issues communicating with the owner, nor the local contact. However, many things should be clarified. 1. The two bedrooms are separated by the patio/breezeway, and not ideal for families with young children. We had to make adjustments to our plans. 2. Fridge was broken. I really don't care who did it but it was broken, and we had to communicate with the owner and stuff paper towels and shopping bags in the water dispenser to make the fridge reach colder than 48 degrees. Hopefully, this will get fixed for others staying there. 3. The screen on the second bedroom, not the master, is shot and hanging out from its track completely and screen's torn with at least a 2 foot gash. The balcony by the second bedroom was full of rat crap. I realize it's "the tropics", but a cleaning lady (whom the owner said wasn't pleased with) could have cleaned the area up at least the day before our arrival. 3. The views from the pool are VERY nice, but the owner needs to/should (suggestion) have couple of the palm trees' fronds pruned so that the view could be every more beautiful. Sitting on the deck/patio of the main living area, all one sees are the palm fronds. 4. Lots of maintenance work needs to be done to the house, driveway, etc. Again, I realize it's "the tropics", but I lived on St. Croix and we visited, during this stay, many other places on St. John, and rarely were the rental villas in this state....for the same price, and same/better locations. LOT more TLC.

I wouldn't recommend this villa for families with young children. This would be better suited for adults. And, even though the ground floor is not part of the rental, looking from the floor that's rented, it's in SUCH shoddy shape. There are bricks, shingles,...etc strewn right below where you're staying and it just looks....not very pleasing. I know the owner uses that portion as his own space, but making it cleaner and neater would do a lot to help things.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry for your response, I talked to this renter a number of times to make sure things were okay at the villa, only mentioned the ice dispenser flap was broken off and the found a few broken pieces of glass on deck. I talked with the cleaning people and they are aware of the need to check the patios better. The outside patios do get gecko droppings daily we cannot stop this. I am VERY concerned with the lack of respect for my villa, I was there 5 weeks ago approximately and fixed every screen on the home and the ice flap was there working fine. I am appaled at the damage that is being done in a matter of a few weeks. The roof tile that this talks about are on the neighbors lot and nothing to do with me, my lower level which guests should not be in as its outside the villa is covered neatly so as not to see the items that are being stored. A few tiles and tools. These are as said an outside lowere level that guests should not be in. I will be there again shortly to repair items and decide if a security deposit will help from this point forward. I trust that my renters will care for my villa but its starting to prove wrong. thanks for your business and I will do everything to repair once again. St croix is riddled with crime and much lower priced, I am one of the lowest priced villas in the virgin grand estates if not the lowest. its a great home and great value

Amazing vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had an amazing stay at Villa Fabbio. Contrary to some of the reviews, the bedroom AC was cold and comfortable and the fridge definitely kept the beer and wine cold! Ending the days at "happy hour" relaxing on the spacious outdoor patio watching the St. Thomas lights made for a perfect getaway vacation. We loved the quiet location as well as watching an occasional iguana hangout in the trees below. I would definitely recommend Villa Fabbio.
