A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about Ginger Thomas ,and the owner, Tara. It did not disappoint. The home was clean, and had everything you would need, and Tara was so attentive and sweet. The view was incredible! Loved the feral cats on the property, and the hummingbirds . My husband and I, and our two small pups found a home away from home. We will return.

Beautiful View - Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We love St. John, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property! The owners were accessible and very helpful, and the view from the deck is stunning. Easy access to Cruz Bay and the best beaches. We especially enjoyed having a separate downstairs “suite” separate from our college-age children and their friends.

Excellent villa, great location & view, perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 4 night 5 day stay at Ginger Thomas and we're already wishing we stayed longer. Tara & Jim have a great group of properties and Tara makes sure you are well cared for while you are there. This is our second time renting from Mandavilla Properties and we will definitely be back for more. Ginger Thomas has plenty of parking, privacy for both sets of guests which really helps when traveling with friends or family. We chose the downstairs bedroom and had our own little private table & chairs for a great view of Pillsbury Sound, every morning we'd sit out and have our coffee. Our kitchen was large and open with everything we needed to make breakfast or dinner, gas grill for grilling up if you choose, dining area on patio with plunge pool as well. The upper patio with pool has fans to keep you cool and plenty of shade & seating, views are just unreal. Both bedrooms are roomy and comfortable as well. Given the fact that St. John just went through 2 category 5 storms only 6 months ago, you'd not know it looking at how well the property looks. Location is just up the hill from Cruz Bay and you can get to gas, grocery and shops/restaurants all in a few minutes. Tara is great with communication and answering questions, you are left alone but can always reach her if needed. We will be back for sure.
