Mandahl Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 adults and 1 child under age 3.

We have lived in Estate WINTBERG since 1974. Steve is a professional photographer and video producer. I am a retired teacher. I now have more time to pamper my guests and volunteer. We are happy to share our two family house with you. All the photos were taken by us and truly reflect our little piece of paradise.

About Leslie Rockstein

I am a retired elementary school teacher. Hosting travelers makes me feel like an ambassador of the slow down movement. I truly love seeing our guests detox from their busy lives. They truly leave here feeling restored!

Leslie Rockstein purchased this apartment in 1984

Why Leslie Rockstein chose Northside

We fell In love with this property because of the unobstructed view of Magens Bay and the rainforest.

What makes this apartment unique

Magens Valley Inn is centrally located. If you do not want to rent a car, you can easily walk to the end of the road and get a taxi to Magens Bay.

I can arrange car service from the airport to my house if you prefer to rent a car the second day of your stay. The cost estimate is $50 for 2 people. This service is wonderful especially if you arrive late at night. Jackie also does tours.

Island Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay. Our little apartment was stocked with everything one might need from kitchen items, to beach needs. The backyard wildlife was fascinating to watch. We got a chance to see several iguanas, geckos, chickens, doves, and even had a nice visit on our last day from a Green-throated carib hummingbird which was an ending to a perfect vacation. I would highly recommend this little piece of paradise on St Thomas. Leslie was a great host. We would definitely stay here again!

A great place for a romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was most pleasant. The owner seemed to have taken care in stocking the house with whatever we might need. The apartment, downstairs from the owners, was charming with just enough decorative items around. The screened living room was heavely to sit in and relax listening to the sounds of nature

Truly magnificent!!!

  • 5 of 5

Third time staying at this beautiful vacation retreat. It has been a wonderful time and we still have 6 days left. Can't wait to come back.

Even with the weather this time of year we have had such fun. The apartment is truly more than one could ask for. Loved the new things you added since we were here last. Thanks for keeping my printer needed it again this trip was so glad it was here. I think the most wonderful part of MVI is the location. Beautiful view of Megan's - the gentle breeze - the lush garden- and bring centered on the island we can easily go in any direction to hit all of our favorite spots. The fully stocked kitchen makes fixing meals so effortless, and all the necessities are always there plus some extra goodies. We can't wait to come back.

A cozy, quiet, place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting St. Thomas, and I hope it won't be our last. It is truly a beautiful place.

The accommodations were superb. The fully stocked kitchen had everything we needed. The bedroom was cozy, and the screened in porch was perfect for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. The location is great, with everything on the island only a short drive away.

Leslie really made us feel at home from the first minute we met her. She was always available to answer any questions we had, but never made us feel that she was overbearing.

This is the perfect place for a couple looking for a quiet getaway.

Car: recommended

Most of our guests enjoy a day trip to our sister island of Saint John. Many of the car rental agencies allow you to take the car ferry. I recommend DEPENDABLE CAR RENTAL and Love City Car Ferries. The third Virgin Island, Saint Croix, is only accessible by plane. You can book a flight on Sea Flight for $80/ one way.
