We stayed here for 1 night after spending a week in the BVI. It was a great choice. The rooms are clean and comfy, but what makes this inn special are the owners. They are lovely, including their son who helped us check in. We were fortunate to stay here on a Friday night, so their restaurant was open. It... More

As a local resident, the restaurant at Island View is my go-to "occasion" place to eat. It's only open to non-stayers on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and has 2 seating times. My favorite is the steaks - Rib Eye or NY sirloin - whichever they recommend on the day. Friends get the other plates - primarily fish & chicken -... More

The restaurant is only open Thursday Friday and Saturday. Call for reservations for 6:00 of 8:00 seating. Food is excellent cooked in an outdoor grill area. Prices are unbelievably reasonable. Honor bar system is fabulous. View of the city is incredible.

It is owner and run by Beth and Ron Kirkendall, a couple originally from Indianapolis. They are wonderful hosts and super people. The rooms are very comfortable, views unbelievable,... More

The food was excellent, but the view was priceless. Only open Thursday's Friday's and Saturdays. Reservations only at 6pm and 8pm make sure you try to go at 6pm so you can see the sunset. The only thing is 1 trip to the salad bar was $7 pp. Which I totally thought salad was included so was kind of annoyed... More

What a delightful surprise! A couple people recommended this restaurant to us during our stay in St Thomas. We were so excited that we were able to get reservations. The restaurant is only open Thurs-Sat. It's easy to find just be careful on the steep driveway. The seatings are at 6pm & 8pm. We choose 8pm. There are only about... More

Dinner at the Island View Guesthouse was delicious. My sister and I both ordered the Ribeye. I am normally a Filet girl but the Ribeye was so flavorful and grilled to medium rare perfection. The view was awesome and the service was top notch. Everyone at the restaurant is so warm and friendly. I definitely recommend the 6pm seating because... More

We ran into the Island View Guesthouse in kind of a panic - freshly arrived in St. Thomas for a week, our original hotel (Starz) had lost our reservation and had no rooms available, even though we booked nearly two months in advance. Luckily, a friend of my father's was able to recommend Island View Guest House, and so we... More

I cannot thank the staff enough for their open arms and willingness to help with anything. The room was super clean, bed comfortable, and continental breakfast was great. Very affordable too. I stayed for one night with my two sons. The owner was hands on and helped me with getting me a cab and the staff even offered to cook... More
