“Heaven, plain and simple”
I am 58 and have been around many beautiful properties, but nothing prepared me for the spectacular setting and amenities of Thalassa. We were alone, peaceful, well equipped, ten minutes from the world's best beaches, five minutes to great bars and dining, relaxed, wind-swept when we wanted to be, amazed by the views in all directions, awakened by a rooster at nine am. We were in heaven.
“Stunning views, relaxing and inspiring at the same time”
Wow. What a view. Ocean vistas for 270 degrees from all angles around the house. And the gentle breezes from the sea keep the whole place a perfect temperature all day. So comfortable. So private. Thank you so much.
We vacationed at Thalassa for a long weekend and were very happy with our stay. The welcome we received from Tim was wonderful. It was a nice touch to be met at the ferry, much less be taken to our rental car agency and to the grocery store before taking us to the house. He took the time to make sure we had everything we needed and was always accessible during the duration of our visit. The house was well maintained and we greatly appreciate the little things like beach chairs, towels and the cooler. As with all the other reviews, the views from this house are amazing. The showers are outside so we found we only had a small window during the late afternoon when it wasn't too windy or chilly to shower but this is probably only an issue in the winter/spring. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice relaxing vacation. It was very close to Cruz Bay and easy to get to the beaches.
Response from the owner It was an absolute pleasure having the two of you stay at Thalassa! Thanks for your informative and thoughtful review. We would welcome the chance to have you return - anytime!
“What a great place”
Stayed around Christmas time, and loved the house. it is unique, with truly unrivaled views for both sunrises and sunsets. The setup is also great with bedrooms separate from the main house, and lots of covered terrace space for lazy afternoons. Outside showers are something to get used to, but in fact a fantastic idea. Nothing fancy, but everything one needs is there. Will definitely be back! One note: I would suggest that one gets a 4x4 as the last few yards on unpaved road are pretty bumpy, and the road up to the house is a pretty steep incline.
Response from the owner Thanks so much for your comments and for staying at Thalassa over the holidays! We're delighted that you had a nice time and enjoyed everything from the simple comforts of the villa to its panoramic views. Fair point about the bumpy street - like many roads on St. John, it certainly does have "character!" Whenever we stay at Thalassa, we've found that basic 2WD gets us up the driveway without a problem - but we can definitely understand your point that 4WD wouldn't hurt either. And since so many roads on the island are rugged, we'd recommend 4WD for everyone to make getting around as reliable as possible. Thanks, again, for choosing Thalassa. We'd love to have you stay with us on your next visit!
This was a villa with a beautiful location! The views are great. Definitely need a 4 wheel drive for the driveway! But then all of St. John is pretty adventerous driving. The beach chairs and cooler came in very handy. The only drawbacks are the beds which are very hard and uncomfortable, and the bathrooms need some updating. I would come back if I knew the mattresses were replaced. It was pretty hard to sleep at night. Other than that it was a nice stay.
Response from the owner Thank you, Jory! Thanks for staying at Thalassa. Shortly after your stay, we placed an order for new mattresses because the comfort of our guests is very important to us. We appreciate the candid feedback and are committed to doing everything possible to make your visit at our villa as enjoyable as possible. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you back again in the future.
“Wonderful panoramic views! Well thought-out villa. Helpful manag”
We very much enjoyed our stay and even though the road was a little rough getting to the house, the panoramic view was wonderful. I found myself getting up at dawn each morning to watch the sun rise. I also really appreciated having internet access because I own an it company and I have to keep "in touch" with servers, partners, etc. Both my wife and I very much enjoyed the way things were thought out in the house (& outside) and how extra food/water from previous guests were left behind because we've been places where you have to throw everything out or take with you. Your caretaker/manager was very helpful and a good guy. He was a welcome sight after our long trip to get to paradise. The only problem I had was that the shower on the main house never got hot. One had to be brave to take a shower in it. I did twice. Thanks again for hosting us and I hope to come back next year.
Response from the owner Thanks for your thoughtful comments! We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks to your feedback about the shower, our manager has now fixed it and it gets warm more quickly. Please do let us know if you ever have an issue like that at Thalassa on future visits, and we can have him try to resolve it right away during your stay. Thanks again for choosing our villa. We would love to have you back next year!
A comfortable aerie house with incredible views and Caribbean breezes. A quck ride to the nightlife and shopping of Cruz Bay and back to the seclusion and tranquility of the house.
Response from the owner Thanks, Bill! Looking forward to having you come back again this year.
