Very clean and well stocked house

  • 5 of 5

Sandra & Dave were very hospitable and provide a very clean and well stocked home. The location and view are great. Everything you could want is just a few minute drive away. If/when we go back to St Thomas, we will definitely call Sandra & Dave.

Fantastic! You just found paradise at the gorgeous villa!

  • 5 of 5

How did we get so lucky? My husband and I stayed at this beautiful villa for eight days the beginning of February 2017. We haven't even been home for two weeks and we talk about our St. Thomas adventure every day.

The pictures of this home don't do it it justice. It's pretty in the pictures but when you walk through the door and see the amazing views of the port of Charlotte Amalie you will know you're in paradise. The villa itself is amazing. The detail to the architecture is just so pretty with the wrap around porch, high wood ceilings with hidden ambient lighting, and a well appointed granite kitchen. It's spacious and very clean, everything you need is there. The pool is on the east side and gets tons of sun throughout the day. If you want to get in the shade, the porch is huge with lots of comfortable seating and a table to dine on.

The owners, Sandy and Dave, are just the nicest people ever! If you need anything, they are there for you. They will make renting this villa very easy and even meet you at the airport to lead you back on the left side of the road. They are a wealth of information and know this island, and St. John very well.

Driving on the left Is a little scary at first but just remember this when you are turning; short left, long right. The hills are crazy too so go slow.

Some of our favorite restaurants are Oceana, right on the water near Frenchtown, The Cru(?) in front of the yachts and cruise ships, Fresh, by the yachts, and just a little further past the cruise ships was a barbecue place, The Rooster. It's super casual and good. In the plaza by the Rooster is a grocery store that has a good selection in it. I did pack coffee and a few items to bring but there are plenty of places to shop.

Finally I'd like to say that St.Thomas was fun, beautiful, hot, and sunny. Coming back to this villa everyday made it even better. We truly felt like we lived there and it was 'home'.

I think our favorite memory though was getting to know Sandy and Dave on a personal level and developing a true friendship. We hope our paths cross again in the near future, they're the best!

Fondly, Barbara and Vytas. Cleveland, Ohio. Brrrrrrr

Great Week in St. Thomas at a fantastic location !

  • 5 of 5

This St. Thomas Harbor View Villa is very well appointed with many amenities that provide for a wonderful experience for your stay in St.Thomas VI. The views and location to many of the high lights of the island are all here for your pleasure. Dave and Sandra Hertsgaard exemplify how a host / hostess should accommodate their guest. They meet you at the airport upon your arrival to ensure an easy transition to the property. They check in on you during your stay to see if you have any needs, and yet provide you all the privacy you you need for an enjoyable stay. The Villa is very well appointed with all the amenities you need for a day at the beach, a day at the pool, relaxation on the porch, time in the kitchen, and a stay at home dinning experience. You will not regret your stay at this property.

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.
