Paul V. Hayes purchased this studio in 2015
This property has fantastic views, a nice sized lot and is on the ocean. Sweet, healthy ocean air. Multitude of beaches nearby.
Quiet and secluded, with constant exposure to trade winds.
We've rented VBROs before and Paul and Tetyana are by far the most hospitable and helpful owners that we have ever worked with. The birthday balloons, chocolates and champagne, when we arrived, were very much appreciated, especially after the harrowing journey to get there. We would suggest arriving in the daytime, is possible, and have better detailed instructions which include route numbers on how to get there because road signage in St. Thomas is very poor.
We very much appreciated the beach chairs, beach umbrella, snorkel equipment, and coolers that they provided for us to use. They even loaned us a big cooler to use at the grocery store. Any questions that we had were answered right away and we found Paul and Tetyana very, very helpful. They were also very respectful of our privacy.
The studio is the perfect romantic getaway. It is exactly as they described. Since we travel a lot and have to eat out a lot, we really appreciated having a nice kitchen and grill. We fixed dinner every night and loved having an outdoor table to use while enjoying the incredible view.
We were disappointed that we could not get to the pictured secluded beach, but didn't want to risk the anger of the person who built private property around it preventing people from getting there. But, there are beautiful beaches all over the island that you can get to within minutes. Utilizing the kayaks involves lowering them off a cliff with a rope, which we passed on. The ferry to St. John's and grocery stores are also within minutes of this property.
Thanks for a great birthday trip!
Lovely studio with plenty of privacy! The view was fabulous, I think we spent hours just gazing at the ocean. And at night, we felt like we could touch the stars!
The location is within ten minutes of several beaches and the ferry to St John.
The studio was EXACTLY as advertised. It had a full kitchen and outdoor gas grill. We were able to cook full meals every night, and eat dinner while watching the ocean.
Thank you for a wonderful vacation!
We stayed at Paul and Tatyana's studio 8 nights. It is a great small studio with a spatial terrace and great sea views. The place is in a short distance to Red Hook. Tatyana and Paul, thanks a lot for your hospitality and advices!!!
We stayed at Paul and Tatyana's studio apartment 3 nights. They were wonderful in accommodating our daughter providing a bed for one evening she was with us. Thanks! The apartment was comfortable and had all we needed. Full kitchen, refrigerator and a bottle of chilled champagne waiting for us! The house is in a private location, about a mile or so off a main road so you definitely need a car. Its hillside so it's necessary to walk down steps to the unit with a private deck/ lounge chairs, grill and a vast view of the ocean. The description is accurate. We didn't walk down the cliff side to the water because it's a bit precarious, not good for those afraid of heights. It's an easy drive to Red Hook and many beautiful beaches. Nice location on the northeast side of the island. We'll gladly stay again. Thanks for your hospitality!
Our stay was amazing! The owners are very nice wonderful people. It was worth every penny!!!
I can't say enough good things about our stay here. The owners were wonderful, the views from the deck were breathtaking. Being able to wake up to the sights and sounds of the Caribbean was awesome. Can't wait to make it back.
Coral World is visible from the villa and is about a 5 minute drive....great for kids. Mandahl Bay occasionally has nicely breaking waves for surfers.....whale watch from the villa deck during humpback migration season Feb-March-April. Scuba the underwater volcanic tunnels of Thatch Kay - 1/2 mile by water from the villa. Kayaks are available at the villa for the adventurous.
