Absolute Paradise Villas in St. Thomas was one of the best vacations I have ever had. The friendliness of Rebecca while trying to make our reservations was just great. She was so helpful. The rates we paid for this villa were very affordable. We had a wonderful time. The pool is centrally located and we had an 8 year old and a 10 year old with us and they loved it. They felt very special in their own room with the small efficiency type accommodations. They had the best of times watching the iguanas running free. They were amazed with them and so was I. The layout of the villa was great and very accommodating to our needs. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make our nights of cooking successful. We absolutely loved the sliding glass windows with the grill just outside. It was very handy for not having to make so many trips in and out of the door. We were able to turn off the air conditioning a couple of times and open the windows to feel the wonderful tropical breezes. The beds slept wonderfully. The large patio area with the gas grill was great for the whole family to have space and enjoy themselves. We sat out on the patio every night and played cards or just had drinks and friendly conversation. Funji's is a great bar and restaurant out on the beach. We went over there almost every night just to sit at the bar and have a few drinks. The locals over there are great for information. We also went on the Limnos Charter trip to Virgin Gorda and Norman Island. Rebecca suggested this trip and she was right on target. It was a great day. The kids loved it. Coki Beach is a short walk and a beautiful beach, but the privacy of the beach right there at the villa was great. The beach at the villa is where we spent most of our time. Carmen, the housekeeper, was a very big help and even helped us out with directions and the local safari. We had a great time and will definitely be back. We give this place a 10+. If you are thinking of going to St. Thomas for a nice, relaxing, vacation, Absolute Paradise Villas is definitely the place to stay.

Top Local Tips for Charlotte Amalie

Getting Around St. Thomas Highly recommend renting a car so you have the freedom to get around St.Thomas and visit St. John for sure. Some of the best beaches are actually on St.John.

Renting a car not all it's cracked up to be I read the debate about renting a car in STT ("it's worth it because taxis are so exp", "driving on the wrong side of the road is easy to get used to", etc.) and from what I'd read, it sounded like things would be pretty easy to find. Wrong. I consider myself an excellent map reader, but the roads were hard to navigate (few road signs, names change mid-road, or veer off in strange directions), getting places without explicit directions was difficult, and turning around (especially on the wrong side of the road) is not easy. Driving on the wrong side of the road wasn't that bad after you got used to it. But the one part that I didn't consider was that when driving, you can't (or shouldn't!) drink at dinner, on beaches, on boat trips, etc. Taxis were pricey, but so was paying $10 for parking in RH, $2 at the beach, etc. For 2 people, it definitely wasn’t worth the price. While it was nice to have a car to stash your stuff at the beach, in the end, we wished we hadn't rented one.

Local Bars, Clubs & Dining There are 3 very close places to eat right near the villa. Fungi's which we had tons of fun at is actually a walk down the beach, right above that on the hill is the Agava Terrace which offers fine dining. Both of these are in waliking distance right on the property. Ramono's is a $2.00 Taxi ride or 3 min drive if you rent a car. Then there was Redhook where we spent many nights. There is a whole collection of island bars from mild to wild. Duffy's Love Shack was our favorite as it was great place to unwind & the selection of island drinks was endless. There are many other places to eat that we went to as well all over the island.
