About Shawna

I am so happy to share my special place in paradise with you! I put my heart into Blue Skies Magen's Bay and try to think of everything, so you only have to bring the basics. Guests tell me that the extra touches make such a difference. I am always making improvements and welcome suggestions. My goal is for guests to feel like BSMB is their vacation home too, offering everything they would want to make their time in the Virgin Islands one of the best times of their lives. I am very thankful for every rental and every guest. I hope we'll see you soon! - Shawna

Shawna purchased this house in 2011

Why Shawna chose Peterborg

It has been a life-long dream of mine to have a home in the islands.... a dream that I didn't think would come true for many years to come. St Thomas is the perfect spot! it has everything I enjoy... beautiful views, island hopping, amazing beaches, great restaurants, golf, boating, shopping, snorkeling, exploring, and more!

During a trip in 2011, I decided to look at homes for sale to get a better feel for what was available. When I saw Blue Skies Magen's Bay, I just fell in love with it. I knew I finally found my dream home in the islands! I love the 'feel' of the house and the property... it feels so much like home, I never want to leave! The views of Magen's Bay, Magen's Bay Beach and the open ocean are just spectacular. I love that the entire house is oriented towards the view, so no matter what part of the house you are in, you can open the glass French doors and enjoy indoor/outdoor living in paradise! I also like that the house is on the calmer, less windy bay side of Peterborg so guests can comfortably sit or dine outside without everything blowing away. It's incredibly peaceful and more beautiful than I can express. I know you'll enjoy it as much as I do and you'll have an unforgettable vacation at Blue Skies Magen's Bay - Shawna, Pompano Beach, Florida

What makes this house unique

Blue Skies Magen's Bay is ideal for friends and family traveling together. Each suite is very private with a separate entrance, private balcony, and an amazing view. Guests can mingle together in shared common areas and then retreat to their suite for privacy and relaxation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Blue Skies had everything we ask for and more. Blue Skies, Check, Turquoise waters, Check, White Sand,Check that "come home" feeling,CHECK! We have just returned from an incredible experience in the Caribbean and it is all about location! BSVI is nestled in a tropical paradise, secluded, safe, and magical with a view!... I would wake every morning and just stare out of the 8 picture windows before me inspired! We cannot wait to go back. Highly Recommended to add years and memories to your life!

This property provides the perfect vacation getaway. It is far enough out of town to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the island but close enough that anything you want to do or see is never too far away. But we did have our own vehicle and I would recommend a rental car if you stay here. Rashel is THE BEST host and Shawna (the owner) is so responsive and friendly. Words do no justice to describe the views from this home. Stunning is the only thing I can say ---- the view of Magen's Bay is to die for! The house is large enough for multiple families and the fact that everyone has privacy or can easily enjoy together time in the common areas makes this the perfect house. The pool is also a great amenity to an already fabulous property. We hope to visit again soon and we would definitely stay here again.

Perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this villa. WOW. Views are stunning, the accommodations were perfect for our family size (5 adults, 1 child). Well stocked with everything you can possibly need (except food, and even there certain staples were on hand). Thank you Shauna. We will be back.

Beautiful home overlooking Megan's Bay

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for our guest situation! We had 8 people staying at the home and it was gorgeous and situated in a great location on the Peterborg peninsula overlooking Megan's Bay. The rooms are spacious and allow for great views.

The kitchen is a bit small for large gatherings. Overall we truly enjoyed our stay and liked the privacy and safety of having the gated access.

Magical, Serene Paradise with Jaw-Dropping Views!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed a week in Blue Skies Villa. There were 8 of us and we all had our own perfect, private space. My husband and I stayed in the master suite in the main house, my 12-yr old son took the private bonus room off the master with the bunk bed, my sister and her fiancé stayed in the 2nd master across from the pool, and my 21 & 22-yr old nieces took the downstairs beach suite with my 14-yr old daughter. The layout was fantastic, and you can dream up any rooming configuration you want because there are plenty of sofa beds and airbeds (like our group, not everyone will fit neatly into a 2-person per suite layout!)

And the place! I don’t even know where to start – it had all the dreamy elements of a paradise combined with all the comforts of home. Of course, our favorite spot was the enormous deck with plenty of comfy chaise lounges overlooking magnificent Magen’s Bay. We had our own private pool complete with pool toys and floats, and a barbeque grill that we used several times. We read many reviews about how the villa was extremely well-stocked, but we weren’t sure exactly what that meant and ended up bringing WAY more than we needed. Every single closet, drawer, and cabinet was stocked with everything you could possibly imagine: plenty of sheets, towels, shampoo, conditioner, sunscreens, hairspray, hairdryers and flatirons, cleansers, laundry supplies, pots, pans, condiments, etc. etc. They even had a garlic press! So we were able to make plenty of our own meals with supplies from Moe’s Gourmet Groceries in Red Hook (AWESOME STORE!), and we were able to do our own laundry which came in handy since we spent so many days at the beautiful beaches of St. Thomas and St. John. There’s even a library with plenty of DVDs and books!

And I can’t write a review without giving a big shout-out to our wonderful, attentive hosts, Rashel and Jim! They escorted us from the airport, pre-stocked the kitchen with the grocery list we provided, checked up on us, and were available to answer any questions during our stay. Rashel is also a licensed massage therapist, and while we intended to take advantage of her services, we lost track of time during the week! She will bring all the necessary supplies directly to the villa.

Blue Skies Villa was so relaxing and beautiful. We would not have had such an incredible experience at any overpriced, high-end resort. If you’re thinking about visiting St. Thomas, DO NOT HESITATE to book this villa!

Fantastic family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place... Lovely water view, good sized pool, and great open space in main house. Plenty of room for our family of 4 adults and 1 toddler. Of note it is close to the beach but you will require a car to get there. Would highly recommend for a family getaway or 2-3 couples.
