Our second stay at Captains Quarters. We discovered this amazing property last year when we decided to spend a week on an Island rather than the 5 or 6 hours you get on a cruise ship. We searched through many places and did a lot of homework before deciding on the perfect abode for us. We wanted our own unique experience, away from town, the resorts and the noise. Something with a spectacular view of the environment with minimal human impact to distort the beauty of this wonderful place. On our first trip my family's plan was to explore as much as possible of St. Thomas and St. John, which we did. This proved to be a great jumping off point for our daily excursions. We were rarely off one of the many beautiful beaches to be found here. We loved it so much we returned again at the same time this year. Believe me a truly relaxing experience the second time around. I can't say enough about the accommodations, just 5 star all the way around and was good to see our gracious host Marcia and Joe again. They keep the place looking spectacular. FYI, we visited some of the other properties we had under consideration once we got here last year, some on the water, some not. We made the right decision hands down. We'll be back again, no need to look anywhere else.
The finishes are amazing, with approx 11' ceilings, rainfall shower heads, 2 separate full bathrooms. Beach supplies are available at no extra cost - snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach mats, coolers, etc. Owners are onsite and available for recommendations. 15 minutes from major town; 10 minutes from beach; no need for air conditioning because of cool breeze with being on one of the hilltops of the island. Fantastic view!!!!
Boyd & I have never been to St. Thomas, but were very excited to go. We were apprehensive because we didn't have a lot of time to research the area to learn what cool things we could do. Never fear, Captain Joe was here! Joe met us at the airport to escort us out to the condo, & it was everything we dreamed of, and more! The property is beautifully landscaped & Marcia boasts her own banana tree. Captain Joe & Marcia accompanied us out for dinner our first night, showing us the sights & explaining some of the customs of the area. Renting a vehicle is a must- we had a Jeep & it was great. Our condo was luxurious & stocked with everything we may need for a fun filled vacation. We had beach mats, chairs, cooler, snorkeling gear, board games, beach tote, sunscreen, aloe vera, and PLENTY of beach towels. There is also a pool to relax in, and if you are lucky, you may even get to try Captain Joe's famous rum punch! We had a snorkel lesson & Marcia shared where the best shopping on the island was. I highly recommend Joe & Marcia's little slice of paradise, we will definitely be back to visit them!
