About Stuart Scott

My wife and I moved down to St Thomas back in 2004 to escape Boston winters and never looked back. People thought we were crazy giving up the corporate lifestyle and now we are living the Caribbean dream 11 years and counting now with our 2 kids who were both born here on St Thomas.

Stuart Scott purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Stuart Scott chose Northside

We purchased this newly built home back in 2012 which came with a cottage that was perfect for rentals and for our frequent visiting friends and family. We are at the end of a 1/4 mile dead end road that only has 1 other house on it. We are in a quiet rural area with almost no neighbors and amazing views of the ocean. Being newly built everything is in pristine condition with all modern amenities which is hard to find outside of the major hotels and huge villas.

If you are looking for tranquility, privacy, off the beaten path experience, local Caribbean and non touristy vacation you have come to the right spot. I will tell you about white sand beaches you can hike down to and during the week be almost guaranteed you will be the only ones there. You will see beaches where you can pull your car up on the sand, have a bonfire as you watch the sun set into the ocean. Or just hang around the cottage and watch the waves crash on the beach below as you read a book or re-connect with your significant other.

If you come during the right season help yourself to the mangos, papayas, and coconuts that are readily available on the property.

What makes this cottage unique

If you want to experience true Caribbean living without sacrificing the creature comforts, then you have found your new island home. Rent by the day. week or month. We are here to make sure your experience in the Virgin Islands is nothing short of extraordinary.

Our stay at Island Bliss exceeded our needs!

  • 5 of 5

Island Bliss is the exact feeling you get when you arrive! The views are beyond anything we have ever seen. We watched the waves, boats and a few storms move through! The villa itself has everything you could ask for...including the best shower ever! Make sure you go to the beaches on he north side. Island Bliss made it easy to travel all over St. Thomas. Definitely a place t return to in the future!! Thanks for the hospitality!!!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our vacation in St. Thomas and couldn't be more happy with cottage. The pictures do not do the view justice. Stuart was always more than willing to give suggestions for places to go and beaches to see. We visited many beaches while there and highly recommend Magens Bay for the view and the bar. Trunk Bay on St. Johns if you want to snorkel and Brewers Bay for the sea turtles. All in all it was a great experience and we would return in a heartbeat if we could.

Beautiful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was so beautiful over looking the water front. You can see several of the islands from the deck. I loved waking up each morning and drinking coffee watching the sunrise. The owner is extremely knowledgeable on what to do for fun, the best places to eat, etc. Very personable owners whom are right next door incase you need anything. This place has everything that you need! books, magazines, cable, cards for your down time. Sunscreen, aloe, bug spray, bug zappers, batteries, snorkel gear, beach tote, towels, kayaks were included. Whatever renters don't use and leave behind, they leave for the following individual to use. We were definitely able to do way more than we would have at a resort.

quiet location, great views

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in July. It was a staycation for me. It was great. nice ocean and hillside views. quiet location. nice house. Stuart was great to work with. Unless you plan to spend all of your time at the house I recommend renting a vehicle.

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Stu was amazing. We were supposed to stay at a different condo in Red Hook, however, the owner cancelled the reservation a week before we were scheduled to arrive. I frantically searched for new accommodations and stumbled upon the Island Bliss Cottage. Luckily it was available for our stay and we were not disappointed. Words can't even begin to describe Island Bliss Cottage. The views from the wrap around deck are amazing and the northside location is perfect with the cool tropical breezes. The cottage has all the amenities you would need and you really feel at home. The cottage is off the beaten path and I would highly recommend renting a vehicle - preferably something with four wheel drive as the road to the cottage is steep and can be slippery after a rain shower. I would definitely recommend Island Bliss Cottage to anyone looking to get away from the cookie cutter resorts.
