The charm of this place is that you feel like you have been invited to a dinner party at a friends house. The menu is simple. Do you want the fish, the chicken, or the steak? They have a bar in the corner, you just grab what you want and mark it down at your table. The food is great,... More

Tried this restaurant based entirely on Trip Advisor reviews. If you are looking for an excellent rib eye, baked potato and a salad this is the place! The views are spectacular! We went to the 6 o'clock sitting and watching all the lights come on was awesome! Seems everyone around us ordered the steak so I can't comment on other... More

We actually didn't get to stay at Island View this time around for our layover to St. John. Had been ther before for fabulous stay in 2010. Beth and Ron were accidently overbooked with carnival and truly went above and beyond to make things right. Can't say enough about their concern and customer service recovery and extent to which they... More

We stayed here for a week, Beth, the owner welcomed us right when we got dropped off from the taxi, and showed us the room. She and her husband Ron, made us feel so at home staying at their quaint intimate B&B, The view was amazing, we see cruise ships coming and leaving, water planes landing every morning, just when...

I can't say enough good things about this place. It is hard to find but well worth the hunt. Take 33 north off 30 the main road going from air airport to town. 33 goes up up up half way up the mountain watch for yellow baracads placed to keep cars coming down the mountain from missing the switch back...

We spent only one night at Island View Guest House, but were treated like royalty. The rooms were fine, nothing special, but the environment was great and the service was excellent. They made room for us for dinner even though they were overbooked. We had to leave early the next morning, before breakfast would be available, so they packed us... More

We love the Island View Guesthouse! I can't tell you how many times we have eaten there! The staff is always warm, welcoming and bring a smile to your face with every interaction. The Honor Bar is a great way to enjoy mixing your own cocktails at your leasure! And the prices are just right. Visit the Island View Guesthouse... More

THis was by far the highlight of our trip. We had the most amazing dinner with a great view, and a great personable staff. If you are going to St. Thomas, make sure you make a reservation and visit this hidden gem.
