From the very warm Welcome to the Farewell 6 days later we had a wonderful time at Villa Marbella. The apartments are really nice, the views of the ocean unforgettable and the hosts very obliging and good company if you're into having a little chat and drink.
There is, a short "hike" down the hill, a very (!) secluded, long and natural beach with crystal clear water, within 6 days we only saw other people once. We also rented a Jeep, wich was fun (as we're not used to drive on the left side) and is a great way to explore the island.

Another recommendation when being on St. Thomas is the "Red Hook Diving Center" if you're into scuba, we did the "discover scuba" trip and their team made this experience just unforgettable as well.

Room Tip: We stayed at the "Cruzan", but we've seen also the other apartments and we would recom...

We stayed in St. Thomas 16-20Nov12. Villa Marbela is such a fabulous place with amenities that are not found other places - like owners/hosts who REALLY care that you 1) are taken care of and b) have a great island experience. They are there when you want them to be and MIA when you want privacy. The pool area faces west, right into the setting sun. They have an honor fridge where you can buy beers for $2.00 and sodas for a buck. Our room (two story w/loft bedroom) faced the mountian to the north and ocean to the west - windows in both directions. It is also close to Red Hook where you take the BVI tours, St. John ferry, etc. The location of Villa Marbela is away from Charlotte Amalie (city), but about a 10 minute drive if you want to go there. Leah and Gunnar are terrific hosts who will rent you a car/Jeep. Ladies and gentleminks, THAT is the way to go. Leah also picked us up at the airport. We had an included (yo ho ho and a) bottle of rum in the room! If you are looking for the Ritz, stay at the Ritz. If you are looking for views, quiet, a private pool, island assistance a great room and VALUE, this is for you. The skill of driving on the left side of the road is purely up to you to master on your own - drink right, drive left. Sammy Hagar's "I Can't Drive 55" did not refer to St. Thomas.

I stayed in the Cruz apartment with a spectacular view of Frenchman's Bay. Amazing sunrises and sunsets!! 5-10 min to beach that was secluded. Room was clean, spacious, with convenient kitchen. Hosts were incredibly hospitable. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: rent a car if staying here

My wife and I recently stayed at the Villa Marbella Suites. As many have mentioned before us Leah was a wonderful host who picked us up from the airport and then dropped us off at the Red hook Ferry where we continued our Honeymoon in St. John. We'll definitely be back. We absolutely loved everything about our stay. Leah was full of suggestions of where to go and what to see. Her recommendations were bang on. Her new honour fridge was also a pleasant surprise that we took full advantage of. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Husband and I stayed there just last week for 7 days and we had an amazing time!! We arrived at night, so finding the place was pretty hard, but it was worth it once we did! Leah was very accommodating and we settled in for the night. The next morning we awoke to the most beautiful sunrise we had ever seen!! Seriously, the view is PERFECT! Leah had lots of information for us about getting around on the island, what to do, where to eat, etc. We went about our activities the rest of the week, but she kept our room clean, provided fresh towels when we needed them, and was always helpful when we had a question! I'm so glad we stayed here versus some resort with hundreds of other guests! I would definitely recommend Villa Marbella Suites! :)

Villa Marbella was the perfect location for our trip. We rented a car which made getting back and forth from a wedding and its coordinating events much more convenient! Leah and Gunnar (and Mary!) are great hosts-it's like staying with family or good friends, without the pressure! There are spectacular views and everything you need for a great vacation. We had a cooler, beach towels and even chairs for our beach outings. We would definitely stay here again- we felt very well taken care of!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Mango room, which was perfect since we actually spent very little time in the room...

We stayed at Villa Marbella Suites in the Mountainside Loft October 20-27th and enjoyed every minute! The owners, Leah and Gunner are fantastically wonderful and helpful in every way possible! We rented a jeep from them and they picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, which was so convenient, especially flying in after sunset since it would be almost impossible to find their secluded location at night! Speaking of location, jaw dropping gorgeous views!!! Their location on the island is great for exploring the beautiful beaches on the East side and easy access to downtown. Our favorite beach on St. Thomas was, Sapphire Beach in Red Hook, BEAUTIFUL! They offer snorkel gear, coolers, and fresh beach towels! The coffee maker, microwave, and fridge make eating in the condo easy. The only slight negative to our room was that after partaking in the drink of choice, rum, it was difficult to navigate the steep stairs to the two double beds which are a little worn. We would definitely stay here again and will bring our three boys next time!
