Located in the quiet residential area, Olga’s is walkable to a number of very good restaurants; as well as Crown Bay Marina for day trips to Water Island. The property offers peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of downtown (the main waterfront highway is 10-15 min walk from property)

My daughter and I stayed in the Cozy Dbl Rm, comfortably outfitted with AC, warm linens for the breeze and a whimsical outdoor washroom that allows you to be one with Nature.

Candi is an excellent host, who pays attention to those small details that even the most seasoned traveler can often miss. Can’t wait to visit Olga’s again,soon, just for that ‘escapism’ effect that I often seek in a vacation. (Katrina)

We stayed at Olga's Fancy at the end of a sailing trip. What a lovely find this was! After a short walk from the Ferry Terminal, Candy and one of her extra-toed cats greeted us warmly. The facility was very clean, everybody was so friendly & we just loved the very colorful decor. It would be hard to beat the view over the harbor. We were easily able to walk into the shopping area to purchase gifts for our family at bargain prices. Our dinner at the neighboring Oceana was spectacular! All in all, this was a great spot to spend our last night in the Caribbean before heading back to Minnesota. I would recommend Olga's without hesitation!

This was our first visit to the USVI and St.Thomas and I was so glad we booked Olga’s Fancy as our home away from home. We prefer beautiful views and secluded spots to some of the more traditional resorts. Olga’s delivered.

Olga’s is located near Frenchtown of St.Thomas just a 10 minute taxi from the airport. The Caribbean Sea is in full view from the pool deck along with the Harbor of Charlotte Amalie.

The coffee is ready by 7am with cookie biscuits and rum cream set out for your enjoyment. There are many different rooms to choose from and we found them to be clean and well taken care of.

One of the things we loved about Olga’s was the privacy and laid back atmosphere. With it’s convenient location to tourist areas we could walk to grocery stores, shopping, and restaurants. Waypoints Marina is a short trot from the hotel if you will be taking a boat ride.

We rented a jeep and drove around the island quite a bit. We always loved coming back to Olga’s to end the day. The owners personally greet you and make sure you are taken care of with recommendations that come from years of living on St.Thomas. They even loaned us chairs and a cooler for our beach trips.

Would would to stay here again and hope you will too!

My husband and I stayed for 5 days, Eddie the owner was very nice. The rooms were clean, the view beautiful and very importantly, parking if you rented a car. There’s daily maid service which was nice and somewhat unexpected as the majority of stateside lodging has stopped serviced due to Covid. We never had a opportunity to use it but the pool was beautiful as well. Overall great place.

Stayed here for 6 nights over New Years. The hotel is great!! It’s built into a hill and feels very secluded and quiet. Owners were great at giving recommendations for dinner etc. Lots of a great restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast, lunch and dinner! Loved the views and being able to watch sea planes land from the pool. Would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a quiet, non-resort type hotel with wonderful owners!

I’m writing this from Room 5. Today was THE perfect day, but you’re here for experiences on the hotel.

When searching for a hotel to stay, we were looking for a traditional hotel over a condo rental that was more budget friendly that the Ritz-Carlton.

Fast fwd to our stay for four nights at Olga’s Fancy. Eddie kicked off the welcome with a text to us the morning of arrival to confirm some details.

Parking if you rent a vehicle is plentiful and easy.

The grounds comprise of several buildings with a great overlook.

The room has a fun vibe, comfy pillows and bed, cool a/c, hot showers, and refreshing pool. They even provide beach towels!

The hotel is a block away from several restaurants.

One of the most endearing parts are connecting with other guests while experiencing the pool, reception, or even out and about in the neighborhood.

The owners are doing everything right.

We stayed at Olga's Fancy for our last night in the Virgin Islands...and I'm so upset we didn't schedule more time there. What a fantastic, quaint, adorable, fun, authentic, welcoming, comfortable, chill, beautiful place!! The rooms are uniquely appointed with decorative, colorful accents and updates throughout. The king sized bed was heavenly...really comfortable. We got a gazillion channels on the TV which was nice as background distraction when we were getting ready. We enjoyed a morning swim in the awesome, tranquil, saltwater pool. The decks around the pool are spacious and have lounge chairs and tables. Parking is free and is right out front. The views are spectacular, the grounds are beautiful, and the entire property does not disappoint. Conveniently located in the cute Frenchtown area, there are many nearby places to walk for food and drinks. They provided a map in our room which we found very helpful. It's right on the water at the end of a street, so it's tucked away and quiet. Candy, the owner, was there to greet us as we arrived and I immediately felt right at home with her. She gave us the quick rundown and we chatted like old friends. She is just delightful! I love this unique place and wish I was back there now. Truly a wonderful gem. I'm so glad we found it. We will most certainly be back!

We’ve stayed at Olgas Fancy twice this year in transit from the BVI and they will always be our top choice in St Thomas. Eddie and Candi are amazing hosts and will help you with whatever you need. The French town area is loaded with gems including the Frenchtown Brewery and other eateries. If you wanted to hail a cab walk over to the Hook Line and Sinker parking lot or your hosts will also kindly call one for you to be picked up at the hotel. Yes there are stairs but it’s not like a straight up constant walkway of hundreds of stairs. There are platforms in between and you can leave bags that you may not need downstairs to be held. We left our cooler down there for the night. The rooms are spotless, great AC and comfy. We will be back!

Me mother, sister and I booked here for a family wedding weekend in October and from the moment we checked in to the sad day we had to leave we experienced the friendliest customer service, most wonderful relaxing surroundings in a beautiful setting, the calm of cool, clean rooms and easy walking distance to restaurants in Frenchtown. Taxis were easy to get for adventures around the island and coffee on the porch with the kitties and hens each morning was a great way to start the day. Would highly recommend.

From the wallpaper to the elephant side table, this room has personality. The a/c is strong and there's a ceiling fan. If you book this room, don't make the mistake of lugging your suitcase up 2 flights of stairs to check in -- you'll just need to bring it back down.

Despite what it says on the hotel website, the separate water closet (toilet) and shower are private to this room 100 percent of the time. The shower is nice and updated. The water closet could use some help. The flusher didn't always work and there wasn't a rack or even a hook for a towel.

No matter which room you stay in, the local roosters will be your alarm clock.

No breakfast is available onsite so head to the Frenchtown deli for great food. Oceana restaurant is next door to Olga's and worth the splurge.

Not really. We stayed at a time (April) when there was a festival going on, and it was quite loud into the night. But I’m sure that was an exception.

Is there a beach within walking distance? If not, how far away? We are not planning on getting a car.
Answer from Mike J

You're about 2 miles from Lindbergh beach, by the airport. The hotel is just across from the north end of Water Island. You are less then a mile from Crown Bay Marina, where you can take a 10 minute ferry ride to Honeymoon Beach on Water Island. There's a great beach bar there, called Dinghy's. Great place to spend the day.
