Overview

Southside Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Welcome to Villa Marbella nestled on over an acre of beautiful tropical, lush landscaping, amazing trade winds and unforgettable views. Facing due south and looking down toward Frenchman's Bay and east to Charlotte Amalie (downtown St. Thomas), Villa Marbella Luxury Suites offers a truly unique combination of luxurious escape and the convenience of proximity to the beaches, shopping and dining offerings of St. Thomas. Villa Marbella offers unbeatable Caribbean sunsets, an inviting pool, and all rooms offer separate living and sleeping areas. The suites are equipped with all you will need to start your vacation.

Head east from the suites and you are minutes from the Red Hook commercial district ferry port (and access to St. John, Tortola, and other islands). Head west and after passing the Marriott Frenchman's Reef resort just down the road and you are minutes from Havensight Mall (the cruise ship port and its attending barrage of duty-free offerings), the upscale Yacht Haven Grande (mega-yacht marina and mall with glitzy shops and great harbor-side dining), and historic downtown Charlotte Amalie, where you can get the best duty-free prices on a $4 bottle of rum, a $35,000 Rolex, and everything in between.

We are in a quiet neighborhood away from it all and a car is essential. Please book your car rental in advance.

Fantastic Stay in the "Mango Room"

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Mango Room at Villa Marbella in mid September and had a fantastic time! Gunner and Leah are the best people you could ask for and the dogs are fun too. I was visiting my teenage daughter and really just need a small room that was safe and clean and the Mango room at Villa Marbella was perfect. The nightly rate was extremely reasonable and helped keep my trip affordable. The pictures of the room are exactly what you get – small but super cozy, safe, clean, everything you need. In fact we were the only people there for the last 4 days of my stay and Leah generously offered to move us to a larger room (at no charge by the way) and my daughter said no, she preferred the Mango room since it was cozier.

The room has a dorm-sized fridge, microwave and a hot plate type appliance, suitable for a single pan. Pans, silverware and cups were provided as was a Keurig and coffee. We had oatmeal, cereal, and sandwiches during the day and usually grabbed something out in the evening.

The pool was lovely and the grounds as well. We rented a jeep from them; which was a great decision. I arrived late in the evening and having them pick me up as a service included with car rental, was a great decision on my part. The roads are pretty steep and twisting and trying to find my way in the dark might have been tricky. Having them pick me up made it super easy.

I just can’t say enough about Gunner and Leah and their staff, Jack, Lexi and Jager the dogs and the Villa Marbella experience. As one last anecdote, the day I was leaving I logged into my bank account and noticed that a local grocery store had charge me $111.00 when my bill was actually $11 (big difference!) I asked Gunner about it and he was immediately on the phone with the store owner and took care of everything securing me accredit of the $100 overcharge. It was all arranged before my plane even landed back in the US. Thank you!
