Great place to stay! Wonderful views, comfortable beds and well equiped kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Max was always available when we had questions or issues, and was able to take care of our needs right away.

St. Thomas is still getting back on it's feet after the hurricanes last fall. Many businesses and tourist attractions are still closed. Most of the beaches have been cleaned up and are wonderful. Snorkeling at several of the beaches was still amazing. Since we just love beaches and snorkeling, we were not disappointed. Would like to return when Pirate treasure museum is open and Blackbeard's castle.

We will be coming back!

Not bad, probably worth another star or two once the affects of hurricanes fixed

  • 3 of 5

The good-owner Max had very good communication. The views from both the small balcony upstairs and the lower deck area were as pictured, and housekeeping was great.. We stayed in early February. Turns out that while the news of last Summer's hurricane(s) damage, which always mentioned the island of Barbuda and Puerto Rico, also caused problems in St. Thomas. Because of this, we had no cable, nor internet. The location (away from the areas of Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook) made our own cell service very spotty. Could generally make calls/send texts, but internet through the phone was mostly non-existent while at the house. We were near the water (as the pictures indicate), but not near a beach, and the property lacks a pool. It does have a hot tub, but sadly it too was out of order. Max told us he'd try to have it repaired, but it was not by the time we left-maybe by the time the next guests stay it will. If you go, Max does provide you with fairly good directions and pictures. As other guests have mentioned, renting a jeep is your best bet. The last portion of the trip between the airport and the home (and therefore the same each time you go in and out) is a bit on the challenging side. Roads are not super-well marked, or lighted, and portions are not level. One other mention-Max does have a nice sign (as pictured) once you reach his home, which is just after a sharp left curve. The houses along East Caret Bay are not all marked, and it turns out the street numbers don't follow an orderly pattern-just keep on the road, even after thinking you must have missed it, and you will find it on your right. As the title suggests, once the television and internet and hot tub issues are resolved, it would likely merit more than the stars we've given. Highly recommend Gladys' Café for breakfast and lunch.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the feedback Kurt! We always want to know how we can improve! I'm happy to report that the hot tub is fully functional and we have internet. Cable TV is not yet restored(tho it should be soon) but we have provided a nice DVD library for our guests. I'm very sorry these were inconveniences for you. As you can see by the other reviews we truly want our guests to have the best experience possible. In regards to getting to the Villa we feel our detailed 8 page document with pictures does a great job and we have not had any previous complaints related to getting to the villa since we revised the document shortly after we purchased our lovely Villa. If there is any feedback you can offer so we can improve our document please let me know. Additionally if there is anything else we should know so future guests have the best experience possible I'd love to hear from you!

Wonderful anniversary trip stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Villa Gypsea for our 1 year anniversary. Originally we were concerned after the hurricanes hit but Max reassured us and walked us through everything we needed to know. He helped out with recommendations and was always willing and available to answer any questions. The villa was very remote, peaceful and quiet with a beautiful breathtaking view. This villa and the entire trip was wonderful! We'll be back!

If you want to explore an incredibly beautiful, fun-filled island and then come home to a peaceful place that feels like your own, then Villa Gypsea is for you! I wanted to feel like we were the only couple on the island, so when I found the villa online, I knew it was the perfect place for us. I like to make the most of my vacations and Max helped me, for four months, to plan out our journey through St. Thomas. From restaurant recommendations, grocery stores and activities to car rentals, Max made me feel completely prepared to live life like a local. The pictures are accurate, but nothing can prepare you for seeing the villa and its views in person. I can honestly say that when we pulled down the drive, I jumped out of the jeep and ran to the deck. It's like a dream! My life is very noisy, so hearing the sounds of nature all around were incredible. Seeing only water and and island ahead of me were simply glorious. We were suppose to go out to dinner our first night, but we just couldn't leave the comforts of the house. So, we had ham sandwiches, hummus and wine while we watched the sunset. I have never felt so relaxed. We visited Megan's Bay, St. John's and Water Island (where we swam with three sea turtles). This villa, it's amenities and it's owner are top notch. You will have everything you need in a home and all the support from Max to make for the best vacation ever. As much as I'd like to keep Villa Gypsea a secret all to myself, it's just too special a place not to share it with the world!

Beautiful private Home in a slightly remote location with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great experience, highly recommended for people looking to have an off the beaten path experience. This place is located in the wilderness but not entirely isolated because there are other houses around the area. The views from the master bedroom and patio are just stunning. We had such a peaceful experience waking up to the sound of waves and chirping birds. The house is very well equipped and kept clean. The hosts are extremely helpful and friendly. They checked in to ensure that we enjoyed our stay! A rented Jeep is a must because the approach is a bit rugged and probably will not be accessible by a cab or a simple SUV. Overall we would go back in a heartbeat!
