Had a great experience. Our second stay. We brought friends this time and they loved it too. Beth, Ron and the staff were fabulous and we felt like family. Simple, affordable, great dinners, close to airport and ferry, yet away from the hubbub of town. We hope to return in near future. Thanks!

If you want to dine where the locals go for great food in a family style setting, then this is the place. Honor bar, a gorgeous salad bar with all the fixin's and hands down the best steaks on island. The views are one of the best places to get a view of Charlotte Amalie. Reservations are a must as...

I stayed here recently for a week and it felt like home. The rooms were comfy and clean, the AC was frosty, and the pool was incredibly clean. They serve dinner three nights a week and I had one of the best steaks I've ever eaten. I love the dining room / common room where you can chill out with...

We have traveled through St Thomas often, as a gateway to the British Virgin Islands, or to our favorite, St John, USVI. We had a villa on Tortola booked for the first week of December, and decided to "book end" our stay at IVGH. We are still high-fiving each other for making this choice! We stayed on Friday, December 2,...

I stay here on dive adventures. Ron, Beth, and staff treat you like family. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The restaurant serves excellent food and Maxine attends to tables with speed and grace. Folks travel for miles to have Ron's Ribeye cooked perfectly on the grill nearby. I love this place

We stayed here for 1 night after spending a week in the BVI. It was a great choice. The rooms are clean and comfy, but what makes this inn special are the owners. They are lovely, including their son who helped us check in. We were fortunate to stay here on a Friday night, so their restaurant was open. It...

I have been fortunate to visit in St. Thomas and St. Croix on business. In St. Thomas, I stay at the Island View Guest House, which is close to the Airport.. It is owner and run by Beth and Ron Kirkendall, a couple originally from Indianapolis. They are wonderful hosts and super people. The rooms are very comfortable, views unbelievable,...

We ran into the Island View Guesthouse in kind of a panic - freshly arrived in St. Thomas for a week, our original hotel (Starz) had lost our reservation and had no rooms available, even though we booked nearly two months in advance. Luckily, a friend of my father's was able to recommend Island View Guest House, and so we...

I cannot thank the staff enough for their open arms and willingness to help with anything. The room was super clean, bed comfortable, and continental breakfast was great. Very affordable too. I stayed for one night with my two sons. The owner was hands on and helped me with getting me a cab and the staff even offered to cook...
