We went here in search of local artists, and found a good selection at Erika's gift shop. We also were impressed with the food at Off the Grid (try the Mahi rice bowl and have Emily make you a strong drink). Shop hours are variable, but if you go early afternoon, some should be open. Colorful place with a local... More

I stayed here with a couple of friends of mine, the owner Erick and his wife Abby were the most hospitable people I have ever met. The rooms had everything we needed, I enjoyed meeting other who were staying around me, felt very safe, & the gardens is like a mini town in its own! We didn't even need to... More

Local artisans, a cool hostel (where we are staying) and a great place to eat and listen to music in the evening. What more can you ask for in Paradise!!

An off the beaten path adventure. This shady garden surrounded by artsy shops and friendly people is a welcome change from the sun and beaches. Off the Grid restaurant is located at the center of this garden. Spent a relaxing afternoon here and look forward to a return visit.

A jewelry store, pottery studio, bakery, two restaurants, a theatre, a bar, a hostel, a vintage shop, a casino, and a chiropractor... Among other things! All in one little artsy spot. It's fun for people visiting, locals, and especially those staying at the hostel. The bar tenders are really friendly, the cats are so sweet, and there's a parking lot.... More

Tillets Garden is a hidden treasure on St. Thomas. A great place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the cruise ship areas in town. There are quaint shops, the owners are friendly and eager to share the history of the space. A true artsy travelers dream.

Do not overlook this young fresh (historic?) location as dinner destination!! Off The Grid food is casual, original and reasonably priced. I heard about "The Secret Menu" and ordered the Lamborgini. Imagine Gyro meets burger...beyond amazing! The owner and his wife are culinary genius with a pedigree! They are breathing new life into a beautiful setting surrounded by Art and... More

Find it, hang there... 3 best things are Off the Grid (formerly The Food Truck)- eat & drink, the Mystic Valley shop with lots of very local hand made work (Ericka is awesome), and the handmade gelato (look for the yellow front). ... Follow 38, it's just near Walgreens.

Always something to do and people to talk to. Guests can leave together and explore the area and make instant friendships. There are trolly type trucks to take you to any side of the island so leaving and returning is as easy as walking to the street.
