Spacious Villa

  • 4 of 5

We stayed Feb. 1-7 in this 3 bedroom villa. It is not directly on the beach, but a short 2 minute walk to the Margaritaville beach or a 10 minute walk to beautiful Coki beach. The entire villa was very spacious and fit 8 people comfortably. The kitchen is spacious, but each room has their own kitchenette to use also. Breakfast on the main patio each morning was peaceful. The water shut off one time and a after a quick call to Mark we had it running again. LOVE the open air bathrooms! Only issue we had, the beds in the bedroom with 2 full beds were hard and uncomfortable. Otherwise the villa and entire island is beautiful and relaxing!

Not as advertised

  • 1 of 5

Hideaway villa is outdated and poorly maintained. We ran out of water our third night here. The housekeeper said it was the owners fault for not having water delivered. We were offered nothing for the inconvenience. We were told at 8:30am on the 26th that check-out was at 11am, but when we returned from breakfast at 9am the water to the suite had been shut off. Internet was intermittent at best. We had 6 towels for a family of four to share for 6 days. Housekeeper only came by when water ran out. Wish I could post the photos I took.

Exceptional care and consideration by the owner

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our daughter from other parents stayed in this village cottage and we had an exceptional time. We actually stayed here alone for 3 days at the end of May beginning of June before departing on a bareboat charter cruise for 10 days and then returned here after for another 6 nights. During our fist stay there were some minor issues with the Palm room which we were easily able to discuss with Mark via text. He got the issues resolved quickly and we had an enjoyable stay. One note is that the bed in that room is a very firm mattress, not quite to our liking but the accommadations were still great.

When we returned for the second portion of our trip, after an amazing sail around the BVI, we had our daughter with us so we had rented the coral room as well. Upon our arrival and meeting Carmen for the first time, as she was on vacation for our first portion of the trip, we were greeted well and told that Mark & Heidi had added the great room as a bonus for the trouble we experienced previously. We were blown away, we did not expect this gesture and it was greatly appreciated. Upon returning home we also received an added bonus in the mail, these people know how to treat guests! On another note the bed in the coral room was exceptionally comfortable! Great owners a wonderful housekeeper and a terrific spot on the island make this a great vacation spot for a single couple or a group. The layout and the flexibility of the property make it a very unique rental oppourtunity. We really enjoyed Coki point and the aquarium and having the Margaritaville restaurant right outside the front door was awesome.

Thank you Mark, Heidi, and Carmen for an amazing vacation experience!

Cozy Beach Cottage Incredible Location

  • 5 of 5

We did a last minute trip to St. Thomas and stayed at Hideaway Village. Mark and Heidi were so great to work with at the last minute. Great communication and Great Price. Location is incredible. On the side of the island that is quiet and relaxing and steps away from the prettiest beach I have ever seen. Coki Point! And I've seen a lot of beaches! Five minutes from Ferry to St. John and some great restaurants. Not a lot of shopping, if you're looking for that, but grocery store close {foods expensive}! Probably better to stop at bigger grocery store near Charlotte Amalie. This property is budget friendly. Comfy little bunaglow., that is older but super cozy. We would definetly come back!

Relaxing stay in a wonderful cozy little cottage.

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that I had the most enjoyable vacation in St Thomas. Mark and Heidi provided me with the perfect place for my relaxing vacation. Their villa was just the way they described it. But even better was how everyone was so hospitable. I can't say enough about how accommodating Mark and Heidi were, as well as their housekeeper Carmen. The area is lovely. As the other reviewers mentioned, not crowded at all. Although not officially a part of the Margaritaville resort, the people there were extremely helpful and friendly. That was very important to me as a single traveler. I felt completely comfortable the entire time. I would highly recommend it to anyone and will definitely be returning.

We were a family of 4 adults and 2 young children staying at Hideaway Villa. It was even better than advertised on the website. The villa is clean, spacious and comfy, with nice bedrooms, great kitchen and patios, lots of beach toys, towels and coolers, and the location can't be beat! Literally steps from the beach and the pool and just 5 minutes' walk to Coki Point, 1 minute to the Margaritaville restaurant, a 10 minute drive to Red Hook bars and restaurants and the St. John ferry. The beach is never crowded, even when cruise ships are in port (this is a REALLY big deal because the better known places like Coki and Magen's Bay are overrun with people on those days). All in all, a wonderful escape to paradise! Thanks, Mark and Heidi for your hospitality.
