“Great location walk to Gibneys beach”

Very nice stay at a convenient location. Its a short walk of about 2 minutes to the beach and about 10 min to Peace Hill and the secret beach below. This beach and neighboring Hawksnest were quiet and had very nice snorkeling. Well equipped kitchen and good with the room safe and air conditioning. The internet went out but the Cateredto staff setup a line-of-sight modem that got us online for part of the time (apparently the phone company here is unreliable). Staff were helpful in meeting and resolving any problems. One suggestion is to improve the trash system which currently requests that guests drive trash to dumpsters in town daily. A car is needed for staying in this rental.

“Great home - even better location”
Reviewed 12 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Great home to rent. Two comfortable bedrooms, large living room, two outdoor showers, kitchen in living room. Perfect for a family of 4 or two couples. Best part of the house is the large deck looking over Hawksnest towards Caneel Bay and St. Thomas. Wifi in home is very spotty - broken more than it's on. Decent AT&T cellular throughout the house.

Catered To Vacations was great. Met us at the ferry, took us to get our rental jeep, then to the grocery store, then to the house for a quick tour.

Best part of house is the location. Minutes walk to Oppenheimer Beach and a short drive to the entire island.

“The Perfect Villa”
Reviewed 25 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

First off let me start off by saying the people at "Catered To" were extremely friendly and helpful! Met us at our ferry and took us straight to the place.

We were a group of 3 adults and one child and it never ever felt cramped... whoever said that this place was too small for 4 people must have friends in higher places than us, cause we loved it! Now I'll admit it's no castle, but it's very nice, clean and comfortable and the rooms are plenty big!

What a view! The whole place faces the bay... beautiful. At night you could hear the surf on the beach as it put you to sleep. (Once you got over this one really obnoxious bird that sang it's heart out after dark every night... my one and ONLY complaint, lol!)

The location is perfect! The house is nestled on the side of the mountains just above Hawksnest Bay in the National Park and is very secluded and quiet. There's another villa next door that was occupied the whole time, but we barely noticed they were there. Again the location was perfect for us... we wanted to do a lot of snorkeling and occasionally hit Cruz Bay to shop and dine out... the villa was positioned perfectly in between our main destinations making it easy and quick to get to where we wanted to go.

The house is very comfortable, comfy firm mattresses, plenty of space to put away our belongings. Ceiling fans and AC in every room, though we never needed the AC. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom and outside shower. Didn't really spend much time in the living room, but the kitchen was very organized and came with everything you could possibly need to prepare just about anything.... it even had a well stocked pantry with spices and oils, etc.. and a great small Weber gas grill on the deck! Most of our time there was spent either sleeping, cooking or hanging out on the deck overlooking the bay. The center is covered with a large round table that was perfect for just hanging out and relaxing.

A 3minute walk down our driveway, across the street and down another driveway brought us to a gorgeous little "private" beach!

Little unexpected perks were a washer and dryer downstairs, plus beach chairs and extra snorkeling gear and beach toys to use if we so desired on our outings.

Definitely will be back!
