“Wonderful Place to Stay!”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

My husband and I just returned from Villa Marbella and can't wait to go back. Leah and Gunnar are fabulous hosts. You definitely want to rent a car while on the island so that you can see everything on your own schedule and renting one from Villa Marbella was very economical (and guaranteed!). They pick you up and drop you off at the airport - could not be easier. And the views from your rooms and pool deck are stellar. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and if you need anything, Leah and Gunnar are always accomodating. I highly recommend this as the place to stay on St. Thomas!

Room Tip: check out each room on their website, each one is special.

We returned to VIlla Marbella for 5 nights this time. Leah left a "Welcome back" bottle of champagne in the fridge, and the place is as lovely as ever - quiet getaway with great views, breezes and pool. When we weren't on the beach or tooling around, we curled up reading in the Mountain View suit - lots of room, and so well stocked. Leah anticipates your every need. She is truly the best hostess a traveler could ask for.

Room Tip: Mountain View room gets the cross breeze.

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful stay at Villa Marbella Suites. We loved it. The room "The Frenchman Loft" is great. My husband especially enjoyed the very large covered patio. It was a great place to sit, read and just watch the ocean. Leah, the host, was always ready to help out with things like recommending restaurants, telling us when town would be it's busiest, loaning out platters and tongs when I used the grill at the pool, etc. Each room (there are 4) was occupied, but we hardly knew it, felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Things were so quite and private. The beach is just a short walk down a wooded path, only saw one other person on it while there. Our cell phone and the internet worked great. We rented a jeep from Leah so she picked us up from the airport and took us back, could not have asked for better service. We are trying to figure out how we can get back again this year. My husband said that he didn't care what some of the other places might look like, he wanted to stay here the next time we get to visit, I agree! You will not be sorry if you book here. We stayed 6 days...wished it had been longer.

Room Tip: Some of the other rooms are larger but each room has it's special quality.

You will not find a better host and hostess than Leah and Gunner. They are so accomodating and bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable. In case you want to venture to a beach, they provide the chairs, the cooler, the umbrella and the beach towels. Since you can only travel with very small size of fluids, Leah even gave me her SPF 45 in a full size, so it was more usable. Location, view, private pool are all a big plus.

My husband and I were able to stay at Villa Marbella for a full week and had such an amazing time! We were in town for a conference being held at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef, but wanted a place with less hustle and bustle. We couldn't have been happier with our choice! We are already talking about making plans to come back with friends. There was the perfect balance of privacy and meeting and visiting with new friends. We absolutely loved the small "nature hike" to the private beach. The views were amazing. Leah and Gunnar were amazing. The weather was amazing. The whole experience was amazing. (Did I use the word amazing too many times? ;0) When the shoe fits....) Needless to say we will definitely be staying here next time we visit the islands!

My wife and I have stayed here now four years in a row. We simply love it. Frenchman's Bay is about two miles from Charlotte Amalie and all of the shopping, nightlife, etc. It is far enough away to provide peace and quiet. The cruise ships parade by this location every morning and night. The property faces West for phenomenal sunsets. The hosts are very pleasant people who make you feel at home. They can rent you a car also. The property provides what you need (beach chairs, coolers, light cooking, internet) and nothing you don't need. There is a private beach that is at the end of a wooded trail. Short drive to Red Hook. Have already booked with them for next year.

Room Tip: Each unit is different so it is best to discuss your needs with Leah.

We stayed in the Frenchman Loft for 4 nights and absolutely loved it! This place is everything it is advertised to be and MORE! The pool deck overlooks the bay with a view that is out of this world - what a way to greet the day! The surrounding beaches and towns are wonderful and Leah and Gunner were great hosts. We rented the Jeep they offer and had a such a blast exploring the area. Can’t wait to go back!
