Amazing views and first class accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts, Sandra and David went to every expense to make sure we were comfortable. The attention to detail was unsurpassed. I was worried about the Zika virus and they purchased Off bug spray and had some placed in every living space with natural alternatives too. One evening while we were out to dinner the power went out on the island. Sandra and David had torches lit as we pulled in the driveway and had supplied us with candles and flashlights. The only thing that was concerning was driving on the wrong side of the road up mountain switchbacks which was pretty stressful for us. Other than that, this is a beautiful haven. Didn;t turn on a tv even once. Looking at that fantastic harbor view every morning and evening was all my soul needed.

Stunning St. Thomas Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is stunning, peaceful and comfortable. We have outgrown the “standard” hotel room and enjoy the freedom and flexibility a private residence allows while vacationing in the Caribbean.

We just returned from our SECOND stay at Dave and Sandra’s villa with our three young children. Renting a property based on online details and reviews can be a daunting experience for any traveler.

You may be concerned about cleanliness…. The house is meticulous.

You may be concerned about location… wait until you see the view and don’t forget about the 30+ beaches within a 5-10 min drive. And as an added benefit the Mafolie restaurant directly below serves the MOST incredible rum lobster dinner!!

You may be concerned about the condition of the kitchen… rest assured it is clean, modern and stocked so well you could make a gourmet meal with all of the kitchen supplies Sandra has included!

You may be concerned about the sleeping arrangements… The master suite upstairs (with enormous private bath) has incredible views of the harbor below. The second bedroom (also with private bath) is complete with a mini library of children’s books- was perfect for our kids.

You may be concerned about finding a grocery store comparable to home…There are several stores within a few min. drive. (One is even supplied by COSTCO and you don’t need a membership card!) You will not see a dramatic increase in cost either. I shopped for 10 days worth of food (and Rum)… the cost was very close to home in NJ.

There is no need to rush out to breakfast… the kids can swim while you have coffee out on the veranda and count the cruise ships as they arrive.

In the evening, enjoy a cocktail and Caribbean rhythms (thanks to Dave’s audio system!) as the lights of Charlotte Amalie greet you below… oh and the kids can go swimming again before bed!

Trust that you have found a wonderful couple to book your next vacation with and an exquisite home to make your Caribbean memories at!!

Best of St. Thomas

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful private villa with expansive views and attentive hosts providing Texas hospitality and Caribbean aloha. First-rate cooking facilities allow for glamorous gourmet in-house meals at spectacular poolside veranda, or take a short walk and dine out at two very different restaurants, each excellent in it's class. Short hop over the mtn to world-renowned beach at Magens Bay, or easy drives to ferry for outings to St. John, Water Island, and the BVI's. We had one of our best family vacations ever thanks to our gracious hosts, Sandra and Dave.

Excellent view, very clean, helpful & friendly!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I planned a trip to St Thomas to visit our daughter and fully see the Island. Another couple joined us so we had five people and had plenty of room. Sandra and Dave (owners) were very helpful from the beginning suggesting where to go and what to see. Sandra even met us at the airport to make sure we found her lovely home. She also made sure we had some bottled water but they have a seven filter system so we could drink the water. This was a big added bonus to their home. . The place was stunningly beautiful and very very clean. The views of the Harbor and town were spectacular, so we tried to make it home every night for sun set. We did not eat out much in two weeks because the kitchen was so well supplied it was a pleasure to cook while enjoying the beautiful view. Two restaurants within walking distance however and enjoyed the first night at The Mofalie down the street. Infinity Pool overlooking the harbor was the perfect size when we wanted to hang out at the house. We are very active people so we did lots of exploring on both St Thomas and St John. The ferry system is awesome and very easy. We did both car and people ferries to St John. We also snorkeled almost every day at different beaches around the two islands, Coki Beach was our favorite on St Thomas. Kayaking and snorkeling at Hurricane Hole was my favorite on St John. Also did some scuba off Buck Island, lots of turtles and a shipwreck. Driving on the left was challenging yet fun and part of the big adventure. Trip with Bad Kitty to BVI's was fabulous but always happy to come back to our centrally located home of the Hertsgaaud's.

Sandra and Dave were very available downstairs but the place felt extremely private. They were always available to answer any questions, & help us in anyway. I would highly recommend this home to anyone visiting St Thomas.

Incomparable View and Beautiful Home.

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely beautiful home with incredible views and wonderful owners. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. While we didn't arrive first, I understand Sandra met our friends at the airport and showed them to the grocery store and back to the house. That is service with a smile!

The home was so well stocked with cooking equipment. There wasn't anything we didn't need. Many rentals have just the one set of pots, whereas this rental had extras for everything. Something we utilized and absolutely loved.

Many thanks for the great vacation and the use of your beautiful home.

Great Villa/Great People in St. Thomas

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in St Thomas on several occasions and also St. John. Sandra and David's villa was by far the best. The pictures on line are so true. The location is great - close to everything and even within walking distance to 2 restaurants - Mafolie was great with a great view. The villa is so beautiful and well equipped that you may choose to just spend the day at home and sit by your own pool. Everything you could possibly need was there, well equipped kitchen, towels, soaps and even a great selection of books and DVD's. Sandra and Dave are great hosts and will help you with anything that you may need. Sandra did our grocery shopping ahead so that when we arrived everything that we needed was there. For first comers she will meet you at the airport and show you the way - that is very helpful if you have never driven there before. I do suggest a car, better yet a jeep as there are so many great places to go and each part of the island is different. Do not hesitate to rent this villa as it is perfect. I am a beach person and didn't miss having condo right on the beach at all - the breeze is so nice didn't even need to turn the air on. This is an exceptional property and Sandra and David are the best - hope to go again!
