!! Paradise Dream Delivered !!

From the moment Brenda (caretaker) met us at the airport we knew this was going to be a great stay. Arrived to the beautiful views one can imagine, totally breathtaking. The villa was pristine and well equipped, the grounds are beautiful and pool was great for a swim after a long day at the beach. Try the Breakaway trip to BVI's, fantastic day, great tip Steve! The fastest week ever, next year we're booking two weeks. Thanks again Steve for allowing us to stay at your beautiful villa. Highly recommend.

Spectacular!!!!!

Paradise Dream Villa is exactly that! Paradise! My husband, sister, and another couple spent a week at Paradise Dream Villa this past February. We used to live on St. Thomas in a house in Mahogany Run back in the 1990's, so when we arrived at Paradise Dream Villa, it felt like we were home! So familiar, so clean, comfortable and amazing views!!! We will definitely be back!! Thanks so much !!

Perfect!

We three 50 yr. old plus couples stayed at Paradise Dream Villa after a week of sailing in the BVIs. The place was terrific. Clean, well furnished, functional, relaxing and views second to none. No need to squabble over bedroom selection as each one is great! The great room area is excellent for gatherings. Kitchen was adequate for our three gourmet cooks, so it would fit most people's requirements. A/C in the bedrooms only, but the breezes cool the main area of the Villa. The Villa is close to everything, so no need to worry about its location on the island. We easily traveled to the farthest points in under an hour. Yes you need a car, too steep to walk up the hill and too far to walk to major centres. Make certain that your vehicle has a good transmission as ours was slipping a lot . Next time I would go with a newer Jeep. Provisioning is close by in Red Hook; Moe's grocery has a fine selection as well as a good alcohol variety; there is another grocery outlet west of Red Hook that supposedly has better prices. There is a fresh fish market at the bottom of the hill from the Villa; fresh in that the fisherman are there early morning and you can buy or order your fish fresh from the ocean. Owner Steve & caretaker Brenda are excellent to work with. We suffered one brown out, we were forewarned about these, it didn't last long (~1 hr.). Frugal use of water is necessary in dry periods as as the Villa uses a cistern collection system. We didn't mind taking short showers and watching consumption. We also bought purified water to drink. My wife and I hopped on the pedestrian ferry to St. John island at Red Hook, it is a ten min. ride to the ferry from the Villa. We spent the day in Cruz Bay and hiked in the National park to beaches; great fun. I would not hesitate in suggesting this place to anyone - incredible value for the money.

Exceptional Vacation Villa and Perfect Location

Thank you to Steve and Diane for a lovely stay at their villa. We highly recommend this listing. When we began searching for a place for our family holiday vacation, I never imagined we could find the perfect spot, but we did when we rented Paradise Villa. As stated in the many glowing reviews, the owners respond quickly to email and the listing is exactly as described. The photos are accurate, but the view is so much more spectacular than you can understand from words and photographs. The design of the home provides a family generous space for socializing or quiet escape. We cooked in most evenings in the well-equipped kitchen or on the grill, so we would not miss the spectacular late afternoon rainbows and evening moon and stars. The villa is located within minutes of the St. John ferry making it ideal for those who want to spend time exploring the St. John beaches. They could stay late on the island for dinner, ferry home, and conveniently take a cab back to the villa. One day we all took the Bad Kitty excursion to the BVIs for snorkeling and for a visit to the Baths. The Smith Bay Beach, closer to home and for only a small entrance fee, provides you clean facilities, easy parking, shady or sunny places to lounge, and beautiful water for swimming or snorkeling. For convenience, we shopped for groceries at Moe’s in Red Hook and found everything we needed. If you prefer dining out, you have many nearby choices. Steve, the owner, responded quickly to all emails although the rental process is quite seamless and we had little need of additional information. Brenda, the caretaker, met us at the airport as promised (on Christmas Day no less!) to escort us to the villa. We were thankful for her help as darkness was encroaching and the roads were steep and winding—not to mention we were tired after a long day of travel and were concentrating on staying left of center. All in all, the house is exceptionally well designed for comfort and for optimal views of the sea and islands. The property is beautifully landscaped and located in a safe and quiet neighborhood, and the house is well equipped for sleeping, entertaining, eating, cooking, and relaxing. My goodness, the view! You won’t believe it.

Loveliest Villa in Paradise!

We stayed 10 days on St. Thomas in the Paradise Dream Villa and absolutely loved this beautiful home. We couldn't have asked for anything better. The home is located in a very quiet neighborhood and close to Red Hook and beaches. We really loved being at the beach all day and retreating back to our own private villa and pool with spectacular views to end the day. The home is equipped with everything you need and more. Lush tropical plants welcome you into this very tastefully decorated Caribbean style villa. We appreciated having beach chairs, ice chests, pool floats and the outdoor grill. Steve was great to work with and responded very quickly to all requests and correspondence. Brenda the caretaker met us at the airport to escort us to the villa. She was also quick to respond to our questions, etc during our stay! We would definitely recommend this home. Our family loved staying in this wonderful villa.

Perfect Paradise Dream Villa !

We just returned from St. Thomas. The Paradise Dream Villa was perfect inside and out! The view is absolutely beautiful! The location is in a perfect area, it gives you the peace and quite, the privacy, and the sense of pure paradise with its spectacular view. The house is well equipped with everything you need, from the kitchen, pool, beach supplies, and even accommodating for young kids. A car is a must, we explored all over St. Thomas, went to Red Hook which is near by (shopping/restaurants/Ferry), to the beaches, took the ferry over to St. John. The caretaker was great, her husband met us at the airport and escorted us to the villa. He gave us a good rundown on the area and recommendations of all the exciting things in St. Thomas. Steve was a pleasure to work with, immediate replies/responses to any questions you have via email or phone. You will not be disappointed, this place is Perfect!

Excellent!

We just returned from St. Thomas and had a great time! The house was perfect - just what we needed for our family of 2 adults and 2 young kids. The separate guest house would be great if you had another couple or parents traveling with you. The photos are accurate, and the house was very clean. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed. The views are spectacular!! Lindquist Beach is very close and was one of our favorite beaches on the island. Everything was pretty easy to get to by car (once you get used to the driving), and we felt safe in the neighborhood. Steve was great to deal with - very responsive, friendly, and answered all of our questions very promptly. (We received our deposit back almost immediately upon our return home!) The caretaker, Brenda, was great too! She met us at the airport, showed us the house and shared lots of great information about the island with us. We would recommend this house to anyone for their stay on St. Thomas! You won't be disappointed!

Paridise Dream Villa

My husband and I just returned from St. Thomas with another couple. We rented Paradise Dream Villa upon recommendation from friends of ours that had stayed there. We went to celebrate a 60th birthday and I have to tell you this house is a 10 for sure! You need to have a rental car for sure. But the view is worth every penny! House is beautiful but the views are what makes it! We went to Red Hook(down the hill for groceries). Beach is 5 minutes down the hill at Linquist Beach and such a gorgeous beach. No resort there ...so it is not crowded. House has coolers, beach chairs, floats and it is so easy. Parking at beach is $20 all day. Red Hook is also right down the hill and you can take Ferry over to St. John. Also Beautiful! Make sure you schedule dinner at Thirteen (long drive) but worth it or Mahogany Run Golf Course for golf or dinner. The dinner was Great there. House is perfect and has everything!!!!! You cannot believe it but the showers overlook the beautiful views! I highly recommend this home! Thank you Steve!! I hope we can get back there someday because it was the perfect Chill spot!!!!

Wonderful Views

Our family of four (two adults, a teenager and pre-teen), spent a week on St. Thomas. The villa is located high on a hill and offers awesome views of the islands of Jost Van Dyke, Tortola and St. John. It is conveniently located in the Red Hook area for shopping, dining and travel to other islands. We were met at the airport by a caretaker and escorted to the villa. We believe a car is a "must have" as the villa is high on the hillside and not along a regularly traveled taxi route. The home was well equipped. We would definitely consider staying at the Villa on future trips. Steve was a pleasure to deal with and the payment process was easy. Thanks for sharing your home with us.
