General overview

Our home is in the Redhook area of St. Thomas, known for its many restaurants and the ferry dock to St John and the BVI. There are two beaches ten minutes walking from the house, and most of the beaches on the island are within a 30 minute drive, including Magens Bay Beach, which is often listed among the top ten beaches in the world.

The space

Our home is bright and airy, and is perfect for anyone who wants to visit the beautiful beaches of St Thomas, St John, and Water Island. We have a lovely porch with a view of Redhook Harbor and St John. There are three bedrooms, currently arranged with one queen bed in bedroom one, 1 twin bed in bedroom two, and two queen beds in bedroom three. The living room couch consists of two twin mattresses, so it could sleep two if needed. We have one bathroom with a shower only (no bathtub). We have lots of toys, puzzles, and games for kids and adults, and we have rafts and body boards to enjoy in the ocean. TV with wifi and lots of DVDs for rainy days. *We have a dog and two cats that live here. The dog would be boarded (or traveling with us) during your stay, unless you want her company. The cats spend much of their time outside, but come in for food and rest.

Guest access

The house is one story with no steps. It’s at the top of a steep hill. The driveway is paved, but the parking area next to the house is gravel.

Notes

We are open to exchanging cars. We have a Nissan Leaf electric car, and there is a free charging station a two minute walk down the street. We often plug in the car at night, walk home, and then pick it up in the morning.

Neighbourhood

Redhook has lots of restaurants and bars, as well as two grocery stores, a pharmacy, and shops selling souvenirs and beachwear. Our house is on a quiet hill, one street up from the water. Vessup beach is a ten minute walk, and Secret Harbor Beach is just over ten minutes in the other direction. The Montessori school where we work is just down the street, and the playground is open to the community on weekends and school breaks. There are lots of wild chickens roaming about the area (as there are everywhere on St.Thomas), and you can sometimes see an iquana or gecko darting into the bush.

Getting to my home

You fly into Cyril E. King Airport. It is a very small airport and easy to navigate. Taxis are waiting outside the airport, and rental car companies will pickup at the airport as well. If we are doing a car exchange, we can leave the car in the lot for you.

Nearest airport

Cyril E. King Airport is 8 miles away (a beautiful 35 minute drive).

Getting around

Many visitors to the island take taxis everywhere - we drive on the left, with the steering wheel also on the left, and it can take some getting used to. Taxis charge per person and the rates are posted online. We also have a Nissan Leaf electric car that we could exchange (seats five).
