Better then anything we could have imagined! Unobstructed views of St John, sail boats drifting by, and our own private pool! Who could ask for more?
Response from the owner Thank you for staying at Cabrite Villa. Hope to see and your family again soon. Katharine & Family
Was reluctant to write this review, because didn't want other people renting possible time, I might rent again. It was the most relaxing time,I have ever had in ST.Thomas, the view was breathtaking,as much as I love ST.Thomas,i never wanted to leave Cabrite point,was never in a hurry to do anything or go anywhere , perfect place to experience, what they refer to has island time.I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to get away from the daily grind, lay back and relax and enjoy the view as well as the trade winds ,you won't regret it, my only regret was that we had to leave after 3 weeks , next time will book it for a month
“The View is the reason to rent.”
The property is older than the the listing. Photos need to be updated. Outdoor bar area is in drastic need of repair. The bathrm and bedrm doors don't shut completely(there are hook/eye latches). No ventillation in the bathrms - not a good combination. The property was not clean. We bought cleansers & scrubbed the place down, rewashed linens, before unpacking. Upon arrival, the pool (main reason for choosing the property) was filled with brown & green algae. It took 2 days to remedy. Then the aC in the bedrm went out the very 1st night. Called the mgr ourselves who needed to get the aC parts & tech from P. Rico. That took 3 long hot nights to remedy. Coincidently, there are numerous signs around the villa stating how a renter could easily break the aC if not used properly. The owner did not follow up, we followed up with her. She explained how she needed a new compressor. Not even a "sorry" from the owner. We felt that if she knew the aC was dying (hence the signs & the new compressor comment) then why wasn't the issue dealt with proactively before? We are still stumped about that. Same with the pool. It's a main rental feature - make sure it's spotless! Finally, one of our group was having a birthday. With advance notice, I asked the owner for a bottle of champagne to be waiting in the fridge. She told me to contact the 'hostess' instead. I did. Numerous times. Then the 'hostess' finally responded it was "No problem! I'll just charge you the fee.". I said, "No problem!". Well, guess what wasn't waiting. So disappointing. Couldn't even ensure one little thing was done. Overall communication with the owner was 'iffy' as well. We feel she may be a novice rental owner - or too busy, or in over her head. We also believe she relies too heavily on a prop. mgr and hostess who are on 'island time'. Three stars because the last 3 days were better. After visiting the islands, we highly recommend staying on St. John anyway; much nicer. Good luck.
“A pool with a view”
If you're renting a car and driving yourself to the villa then I recommend you arrive during daylight hours - street signs are a rarity on the island and finding your way after dark could be challenging - but that's why we loved this villa so much. We were looking for peace and solitude and that's what we got at Villa Cabrite. We didn't see or hear any neighbours during the week we were there. It's situated on a hill about 75 feet above the water. We enjoyed watching the passenger ferries and car barges run between Red Hook and St John. The view is lovely - from inside and outside the villa. We only used the a/C one night as the trade winds kept the villa at a very comfortable temperature when the wall o' doors was open. The villa is clean and has all the comforts of home - comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, wi-fi, laundry, potable tap water. For us, the highlights were the pool and deck; we spent most of our time outside. There's also an outdoor kitchen by the pool, with a sink, fridge and bbq. The location of the villa is excellent, being 10 mins from Red Hook. We took the car barge over to St John and had a great day snorkeling at Waterlemon Cay and Trunk Bay. We also took our chances snorkeling at Magen's Bay on St Thomas, which isn't rated well for snorkeling, but that's actually where we saw turtles and a manta ray. My husband went zip-lining (a newer operation) and thought the 90-min tour was a lot of fun. He had no problem reserving online the day before, though he also went on a day when there were fewer cruise ships in port. Katharine made the rental process really easy, especially considering we were a last-minute booking. The security deposit was refunded to us immediately, which we really appreciated. She also provided a lot of useful information about nearby restaurants, grocery stores, etc. We had a great week on St Thomas and it's entirely because of Villa Cabrite - its location, view, comfort and absolute privacy.
“One with the ocean...Breathing taking views!”
In the past we have stayed at the Ritz Carlton property on the same point. We like this East End Location for it is convenient to Red Hook for Dining Shopping and the Ferry to St John. We enjoy snorkeling at Secret Harbour, and Sapphire Beach. We never thought we could afford to stay in a luxury private waterfront pool villa until we discovered this one on www.StThomasCondoRentals.com The home offered us privacy and a luxurious Oceanfront Pool We spent many afternoons enjoy a glass of wine and floating in the pool. Katharine the owner was wonderful to work with and made toe booking process easy and a convenient check in process. She offered us advice on dive spots and special places to dine during our visit. We gained a friend and a new home -away- from- home. I would highly recommend this for couples or two couples desiring to stay together. Thank you
