“Cute Villa with AMAZING Views!”

My husband and i rented this villa during the week of Christmas (high peak season). The villa was perfect for us. It was a one bedroom with a full kitchen, bath, patio with unbeatable view, living room and our own BBQ grill (which my husband loved). The owner, Jacqueline Perry, was our island ANGEL! She was so kind to us the whole time and really made sure we were happy and comfortable. My husband and I missed her a lot once we left the island after spending 8 days there. She is such an amazing person! We will definitely be keeping in touch with her and staying there when we go back!

Thanks for your kind words. You are a delight to say nice things.
I have worked hard at making Tropical Garden comfortable for my guests. New stove, refrigerator, microwave and last friday a new HOT TUB. Queen size bed with hand carved headboard and new mattress.

And to think you are my guest that had the power outage. What a time. My daughter was here and we all laughed, in the dark looking for all the things I had set a side, just for a power failure. We came through with lights and garden solar lights. Ready now.

“Beautiful seclusion.”

Thank you Jacqueline for letting us share your beautiful view and peaceful location. We stayed in the Unit Tropical Gardens, a comfy 1 bedroom unit with a 5 star patio view. I'd do some restaurant reviews, but actually our best meals were the ones we had on that patio, with fish we cooked on the grill in our private garden. The unit is simply furnished, but had everything we needed that we couldn't bring...beach chairs and a cooler.
We went diving every morning and exploring every afternoon. Being only about 10 minutes from the ferry dock, it was easy to get into Cruz Bay for quick trips, or restaurants or groceries.
This isn't the granite countertop, swimming pool/beach complex unit some people are looking for. For others, like us, the price is very reasonable and comfort of the location and surroundings was priceless.

Thanks so much for your review!

When villas look simple and clean my guest feel at home. I make sure my guests have all the amenities I have for my visiting family. Ready to go beach chairs, cooler and beach towels. The view of the ocean is spatular and seen from lying on your side in the queen bed is special. Just open your eyes when you wake and there is the view you dreamed of. Tropical Garden is the favorite villa of several of my guests. Some of my guests have returned for many years. Like the guest who have come every year for the last 7 years and another guest this year will be their 9th year.
Happy Days In The Sun,

I would highly recommend this vacation rental for people who are looking for beautiful surroundings, rest and relaxation. The location was gorgeous as it overlooked Great Cruz Bay, St Thomas and the beautiful Caribbean Ocean. The rental was clean and secure and provided us with all the amenities we needed. The owner was wonderful, very accomidating and made us feel part of the family. We had a great time and definately would go back to St. John's and stay at this vacation rental again.
