This place has one the best views of the entire bay, I'm so happy we chose this location! The house has amazing energy, and is extremely well kept! The pool is in the middle of the property and was so nice to have! The porches overlooking the bay were so nice to relax on at night looking at all the stars! The kitchen is super efficient to cook in! It's stocked with nearly everything! It has brand new-clean appliances, and the house has 2 sets of washer and dryer machines, which was perfect for our family! The property has 4 giant rooms (1 of the rooms has 4 bunks amazing for kids!) and our room had an amazing view of the bay and ocean! It was truly paradise to stay in Blue Skies - especially the private beach we could walk to, which is right below the house! We will be coming back here for sure! Thank you!
This house is full of wonders, to start with, from every room you have a view of the ocean and all of its beauty. Everything is renovated and looks beautiful. The pool overlooks the mountain and the ocean and the house made me feel like I was home. I definitely plan on coming back here again.
It's a 10 minute drive to Magens Bay. And very close to markets and ferry.
Our family stayed in this wonderful get away December 2016 - Jan 2017 timeframe. It was well stocked, comfortable and we enjoyed great views overlooking Magen's Bay. The owner, Shawna, was a dream to work with and took care of us while there and leading up to the visit.
We would return 100 % and look forward to it in the future!
We just stayed a week in Blue Skies Villa. There were 8 of us and we all had our own perfect, private space. My husband and I stayed in the master suite in the main house, my 12-yr old son took the private bonus room off the master with the bunk bed, my sister and her fiancé stayed in the 2nd master across from the pool, and my 21 & 22-yr old nieces took the downstairs beach suite with my 14-yr old daughter. The layout was fantastic, and you can dream up any rooming configuration you want because there are plenty of sofa beds and airbeds (like our group, not everyone will fit neatly into a 2-person per suite layout!)
And the place! I don’t even know where to start – it had all the dreamy elements of a paradise combined with all the comforts of home. Of course, our favorite spot was the enormous deck with plenty of comfy chaise lounges overlooking magnificent Magen’s Bay. We had our own private pool complete with pool toys and floats, and a barbeque grill that we used several times. We read many reviews about how the villa was extremely well-stocked, but we weren’t sure exactly what that meant and ended up bringing WAY more than we needed. Every single closet, drawer, and cabinet was stocked with everything you could possibly imagine: plenty of sheets, towels, shampoo, conditioner, sunscreens, hairspray, hairdryers and flatirons, cleansers, laundry supplies, pots, pans, condiments, etc. etc. They even had a garlic press! So we were able to make plenty of our own meals with supplies from Moe’s Gourmet Groceries in Red Hook (AWESOME STORE!), and we were able to do our own laundry which came in handy since we spent so many days at the beautiful beaches of St. Thomas and St. John. There’s even a library with plenty of DVDs and books!
And I can’t write a review without giving a big shout-out to our wonderful, attentive hosts, Rashel and Jim! They escorted us from the airport, pre-stocked the kitchen with the grocery list we provided, checked up on us, and were available to answer any questions during our stay. Rashel is also a licensed massage therapist, and while we intended to take advantage of her services, we lost track of time during the week! She will bring all the necessary supplies directly to the villa.
Blue Skies Villa was so relaxing and beautiful. I keep dreaming about being back there! We would not have had such an incredible experience at any overpriced, high-end resort. If you’re thinking about visiting St. Thomas, DO NOT HESITATE to book this villa. It’s perfect for families with children or for 2-3 adult couples without children.
