Villa Gypseá~Secluded Exotic Escape W/Best Views on The Island!
average rating of 5.0 based on 17 reviews

Absolutely beautiful home & view!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by the above average accomodations of the Villa Gypsea property. Not another home in sight in all directions. Quiet, peaceful, warm. Attention to detail at every turn. The master bedroom upstairs overlooks the ocean in 2 directions, listening to waves on the beach at night is delightful. The dining room, living room and kitchen overlooked the views as well. Kitchen, laundry facilities all up to date. The bathrooms were tiled and gorgeous. We slept in the master bedroom - found the 4 poster bed to be as comfortable as home. Many of the most beautiful beaches were were well within 15 minutes of the property. Traveling about the island is an adventure all in itself - appreciated having the Jeep to get us around. The residents of St Thomas and St John were friendly and helpful. Never once did we feel uneasy or unsafe. We enjoyed the out of the way beaches that we found by accident, watched local surfers at Hull Bay. Magens Bay and Beach is amazing. Took the ferry to St John twice ( once with the Jeep) to explore and went to Virgin Gorda by ferry to the Baths. Amazing once in a lifetime experience. I would highly recommend the Villa Gypsea. The owners were very attentive to our needs making every attempt to satisfy or answer any questions we might have before/during and after our stay.

Private, Peaceful and What a View!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a place to celebrate our 25th annniversary. After looking at Hawaii, Mexico and a few other Caribbean islands, we came across Villa Gypsea. The pictures and the reviews caught our eye and we finally decided that we'd found our destination. We shared a number of messages with the owner, Max, before we set off on our 8 day getaway. He quickly and completely answered our questions and we were quite adequately prepared for our excursion. It was a stroke of luck that I thought to bring along my GPS and to download the maps for St. Thomas. It was indispensable. Finding the villa for the first time is an excursion of its own but once you get there it is fabulous! The pictures do not do the villa justice. The views are gorgeous and the huge deck overlooking the north side of the island is simply unbelievable. The villa is quaint and secluded. We didn't see or hear anyone our whole time there. Our days were spent checking out six beaches, twice at Magen's Bay. We ate dinner at a different restaurant each night except one night where we grilled some steaks on the deck. While we didn't make great use of the kitchen - it was vacation after all - it is quite adequate for just about any meal prep. The temperature was heavenly so we let the windows open almost the entire time there.

Max was very helpful and easy to contact before our trip providing helpful information about the villa, car rental, beaches, and restaurants (don't miss Thirteen, the closest restaurant to the villa - it was the only place we went to twice). We really appreciated that he checked up on us a few times while we were there.

Overall, it was exactly what expected only better. We've already recommended it to a number of our friends. Thanks, Max!

What an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed a several VRBO all over the US and I have to say that my stay here tops them all!!

Max was awesome to work with! From the first on-line contact to my entire stay he was the best. When I arrived I knew I made a great choice picking the Villa Gypsea. After being here two days I wanted to extend my week stay and sent Max an email. I ended up being here 15 days and I hate to leave! Max would follow up with all my emails and even called me at the Villa one night to make sure everything was ok.

The pictures don't do the villa justice! This place is even better than the pictures show.

Well done Max! And thank you for opening up this wonderful place for others to enjoy!

Private with exceptional views!!!

  • 5 of 5

As you drive down mountain road to Villa Gypsea you are wondering if there is even a house here but there is. We for a moment thought we got scammed, LOL. We landed at night time and was very unfamiliar with the area. Once finding the house it was exactly what we were looking for. Very spacious, comfortable, private and with views that are priceless. The house is a Spanish design and done very well. The house is equipped with everything you need. We cooked breakfast every morning and ate on the deck which over looks the ocean. After hitting the beaches all day we did some grilling. We wanted to be far far away from all the tourist with as much privacy as possible and this property gives you all of that and then some. As many other guest did before us during their stay, we got the pizza at Thirteen and it was very good. Max, the owner, was extremely helpful and reachable with every aspect which enhanced our stay with not wasting any time. When Max tells you that this property is one of a kind and there is no other property like it on the island, believe him. A Jeep or 4x4 is smart to rent for your stay and if your adventurist enough, there is a private beach near the Villa that you will have all to yourself. The road down is a bit hairy but I enjoyed it. Go slow and you won't have any issues. I highly recommend this property and this owner to rent from. We will definitely be returning. Hopefully in the near future.

Breathtaking View

  • 5 of 5

Villa Gypsea offered a wonderful view of the Carribean Sea! This home is perfect for those wanting to stay off the beaten path, away from other tourists. Our jeep was perfect for navigating the mountainous road to the villa, and as others have mentioned, a jeep is a must! We rented from Discount Car Rental and received exceptional service! The enormous deck offered a perfect perch for sipping morning coffee, listening to the birds who make their home in the forest canopy surrounding the property, and watching the boats zip through the amazing blue water below. We enjoyed the spectacular beaches throughout the week, including Hull Bay, Magens Bay, Coki Beach, and Treasure Trunk Bay on St. John. The water was incredibly clear, and the sea life living below the ocean's surface was a wonderful site during our snorkeling adventures! Since the island is rather small, Villa Gypsea was never too far from any location we chose to visit. The owners were fabulous! They offered great advice and cared about our stay by checking in with us to ensure we were satisfied. I highly recommend this property!

Best decision I could have made!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Gypsea' was everything it claimed to be and more. It was a perfect anniversary getaway. Max was so gracious with information about the island, directions to villa and called several times to check on us.

The villa was a perfect location, very well kept and nothing was overlooked. Pictures cannot do it justice. This is a must see. Not only was the villa fully stocked with anything you would need, but also included small touches that were pleasantly unexpected. And...that view!!!

I recommend this gorgeous villa to anyone and will definitely be back.
