After a dozen years visiting the island, we decided to try Island View Guest House on a friend's recommendation...and we are so very glad we did! The view from atop a hill looking down at Charlotte Amalie and the harbor is exquisite -- enjoyed all the more while drinking a $5 cocktail from the honor bar. The menu includes fresh... More

Four of us journeyed up into the hills to the Island Guest House. The roads on St Thomas can be challenging as you drive on the left side of narrow winding roads. The last 50 meters up the driveway was a hold-your-breath moment for the novice. One you arrive the vibe is great and the owners have established a open... More

We dined here on our last night. This was recommended to us by people we met on a trip to Water Island. It's off the beaten path and we never would have found it on our own. The steaks were wonderful and personally cooked by the owner. Something to note: the seasoned rice is actually just like Spanish rice and... More

The view is beautiful, with a homey atmosphere. Fix your own drink, the way you like it, and take in the panoramic view of St Thomas and Water Island. The food is cooked to order, and the best salad on the island. The staff is fantastic! Be sure to watch the hummingbirds!

Great food, with a wonderful view of the island and the water below. More options on the food would have been better, but the options that were available were great. It was also fun to have an occasional cat walk in to the room.

If the kind hearted and caring owners don't impress you then the view will this has to be one of the best family ran hotels and restraunts I've stayed at there are some many positives I don't know where to start a must stay while on the island

This is a small family run restaurant perched on a hillside overlooking the harbour. The views are spectacular and the food is dreamy :) It's a limited menu with a "honesty bar" system but the food is freshly prepared and is wonderful. If you visit St Thomas and can get a reservation please dine here and you won't be disappointed.... More

Everything was wonderful. The view is absolutely amazing. The experience is like being welcomed into someone home and you are comfortable as soon as you enter. The food is wonderful, you'de would be hard pressed to find a better steak on the island especially for the money.
