Here is the real story: Leah and Gunnar treated me better than family. Gunnar met me at the airport, gave me tour on the way to their great place, showed me how to remember where to turn to get to different places, and they got me checked in in 2 minutes. Using them to rent a car was an blessing-... More

Everything was spectacular during our stay and the car rental was very helpful! Leah and Gunnar are very easy to coordinate with when planning and they are attentive during your stay. The pickup/drop-off at the airport was like first class service. They have great suggestions for things to do on St. Thomas and St. John. Renting a car from them... More

The best vacation / getaway I have ever experienced. Leah and Gunnar really know how to spoil their guests. Took my wife for a surprise anniversary celebration. Gunnar picked us up at the airport and supplied a very nice Jeep for a low price. There was absolutely no stress of wondering where to go or how to get there. The... More

Villa Marbella Suites is a delightful hotel situated in the hills of St. Thomas between Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook. The owners, Leah and Gunnar, take special interest in their guests by providing pick-up and returns to the airport. In the rooms, you'll find beach towels, chairs, bags, and a cooler. Snorkeling equipment is also complimentary. I stayed in the... More

Gunnar and Leah are the best. The rooms are immaculate. We stayed in Mountainside and Mango. Mango is small but okay for two people who don't want to spend a lot of time in the room. Mountainside was large--two levels with cooking and fridge. Came in very handy. The staff was also great, giving lots of suggestions about dining and... More

My husband and I went for our one year wedding anniversary. Leah is great, the rooms are clean and functional, and, even though ours (the Mango room) was snug, really, how much time do you spend inside when you're in paradise? The pool was great, the views amazing, the rental car was clean and we had no problems with it.... More

I've traveled to many places around the world and I've never receive such a warm reception as I received here. Leah and Gunner made every effort to make our experience pleasurable. When I booked the trip Leah and I emailed several times and she answered every inquiry I had. The villa itself is beautiful with breathtaking views of the ocean... More

My husband and I have stayed with Leah and Gunnar (and pups) multiple times now. Our favorite room is the Cruzan View room because I have a fear of heights and the lofts make me uncomfortable. We love this room - comfortable and private with a nice balcony overlooking the water. Leah treats you like family when you stay with... More

Stayed with a hottie at Villa Marbella in May 2015. Was looking for something different than the poor choices on hotel search engines. Everything was either run down-poor review on the beach and Overpriced commercial inclusive-wanted a more REAL island experience for my first Visit to the Virgin Island. Stumbled across Villa Marbella on Trip Advisor. So Happy that I... More

My husband and I stayed at Villa Marbella Suites in the Mountain view room for our 10 year anniversary on June 14th, for a week. The owners were on their vacation but Gina and Floyd were very helpful with finding things to do, quiet beaches and great restaurants. We were picked up at the airport and then rented a jeep...
