Blues Skies Magen's Bay Testimonials (formerly Villa Diva)

I cannot thank you enough for all the help and attention that you gave us before our arrival so that we had no problems which made everything go very smoothly. I cannot thank Rashel enough for all the help she provided us. She was at the airport to meet us and she was always available to help. She also helped make our stay enjoyable. My whole family just had a great time and are talking about making another trip back in a couple of years. Megan's Bay beach got two days from us as it is very conveniently located to your home. We spent some part of everyday swimming in the pool and enjoying the view from your decks located in paradise as my wife says.
I think that because of your home; where it is located; the view; the help and friendliness of your manager Rashel; and the genuine interest you have in helping your renters to see that they enjoy themselves is a positive and successful combination which should make people want to return. Again, on behalf of my family, we thank you for a wonderful week in paradise.

Blue Sky was perfect for our family and quality time together.

This Villa was well furnished, tasteful, and perfect in providing opportunity to be together as a family while providing privacy which we all enjoyed. Shawna has done an excellent job of preparing and sharing a wonderful home with all the amenities that make the stay comfortable. The view and convenience of this villa are perfect for a family vacation. We hope to return and will recommend to other family and friends. Thank you Shawna and Debi. Megan's Bay and the Beach were wonderful.

Hi Shawna!
Thank you for sharing your lovely villa with us. It was perfect for the two couples and our  teenage girls. We rented two jeeps and explored the island. We also took the car ferry to St John (now that's an experience ), had lunch over there and explored a few of their beaches including a stop at Caneel for a cocktail on the way back.
On the way home we stopped at Iggie's a beachfront bar and had supper and drinks in Adirondack chairs watching the sun go down.
We went across to Red Hook , had two days enjoying beautiful Magen's beach (loved having your beach chairs and snorkeling gear), shopped in Charlotte Amalie, had lunch and dinner at Haven Grande, Keith and Greg played golf at Mahogany Run, bought fresh fish to grill on your balcony a few times and simply had a fantastic time. 
Take it Easy was a lot of fun. I have been on the Magic Moments boat but prefer the casual relaxed time aboard Take it Easy. Mary ensured we had our choice of wine on the boat and it was great to lay out front as you are speeding along and diving into the pristine waters. 
Thanks again for everything, we really enjoyed it, your attention to small details was appreciated by all.
Kind regards

Hi Shawna!

I just wanted to let you know we had an awesome time last week at Blue Skies Magen's Bay. We didn't want to leave!
The villa is better than I remember.  The remodel of the second bedroom was so nice!
We were also so amazed at how many amenities you have at the villa.  From the beach chairs to extra toilet paper -- you have everything so well stocked and thought of everything!!! (We always bring our own toiletries and we stopped for supplies before we even reached the villa, but it's nice to know if you don't make a trip the store prior, you can still use the bathroom!  lol!  Some places we've been to prior had absolutely no extra supplies just to get by on.)
Everyone we dealt with regarding the villa was very nice and professional.
Thank you for letting us enjoy Blue Skies Magen's Bay. We hope to make it back sooner than later!

We had a wonderful family vacation. With the property manager's help upon arrival we had a stocked refrigerator and an escort to find the house after our 6 hour delay getting there from Boston! The house was equipped with everything a family would ever need on a vacation. The location made it easy for us to get around the island. We loved it! Would recommend to either a family of up to 5 children or three couples traveling together. More than comfortable! The house was just as it looks in pictures. The property was clean and well maintained. Having the property manager as a resource when needed was key. We brought some vacuum packed meats from home which gave us four dinners. We only ended up going out twice for dinner, once for lunch. Banana Tree - excellent - was everyone's favorite. Other night we went to Northside Bistro which was very good. We got there after dark which was a mistake because we couldn't enjoy the beautiful view! We went to a few different beaches. Magens was the nicest so no need to go too far. We went on a boat trip with the Naughty Nymphs. Very fun day, but was much more expensive than we thought because of going to BVI - customs, gas etc... make sure you understand the cost before you go. Also took the ferry over to St. John and went to Trunk Bay. BEAUTIFUL beach and many more over there. Would highly recommend going over there a few times for the day. Ate lunch at Fishsticks in Red Hook one day. Fun and delicious. Before we knew it, it was time to come home! Great trip for our family.

What a spectacular week we had! The accommodations were above reproach, as we looked out of our bedroom windows, looking over the beautiful, turquoise waters of Magens' Bay. From our island-hopping excursions, relaxing sandy beaches, great dining with delicious food and unbelievable views of the bay. Let's not forget about the yummy BBCs (Banana Bailey's Coladas)!!! Blue Skies Magen's Bay had it all! It was all so special! We will be back!

What a wonderful week in paradise!! We had an action-packed as well as relaxing week in St. Thomas. Blue Skies Magen's Bay is a perfect retreat, private, overlooking Magen's Bay, with spectacular views. It offers something for everyone - close to Magens' Bay Beach to soak up the sun, wonderful restaurants for fine dining, excursions to the neighboring islands. We experienced it all and can't wait to return!!

- Carol and Van Alpharetta, Georgia March, 2013

Just returned from a weeks vacation on St. Thomas and Blue Skies. It was one of the best vacations I can remember. The house was in a very secure location W/ security gate. We never felt uncomfortable. The pool was very relaxing and the view from the extra large deck would blow you away. It was so handy to have such a beautiful beach as Magans Bay so close by. This is what a place in the carribean should look like. Lots of room and great amenities make this the perfect vacation spot. We can't wait to return to Blue Skies.

Blue Skies had everything we ask for and more. Blue Skies, Check, Turquoise waters, Check, White Sand,Check that "come home" feeling,CHECK!  We have just returned from an incredible experience in the Caribbean and it is all about location!!! Blue Skies is nestled in a tropical paradise, secluded, safe, and magical with a view!  Overlooking Magen's Bay with hints of island paradises in the distance..... I would wake every morning and just stare out of the 8 picture windows before me inspired! I am referring to the guest house! The layout of the villa is wonderful with the main house being the source of entertainment while you are separated by a pool and have your own little paradise! This is all you need. We cannot wait to go back and this time with our adult children as there is an apartment below.  Centrally located to beaches, restaurants, exploring, Blue Skies VI was our answer to the complete Caribbean experience. Highly Recommended to add years and memories to your life!

My husband and I spent a glorious week at the beautiful villa Diva for our honeymoon. We liked the privacy, the pool, the air conditioning, location, and especially the iguanas in the trees every morning! The man who led us to the villa from the airport was very helpful in offering information about the area. We would recommend villa Diva for couples or families looking to escape to a tropical paradise. We plan to return someday.

We thoroughly enjoyed your house on St. Thomas and we had an outstanding time. Please be aware of the excellent care your escort provided us as well as the house cleaning folks. We loved the house, pool, and the incredible view.

Our week in St. Thomas at villa Diva was wonderful. What a gorgeous home and breathtaking view of Magen's Bay! Everyone from housekeeping to the man who was there to meet us upon arrival and show us to the villa, was very helpful and courteous while always being very respectful of our privacy. The villa was immaculate upon arrival and was the perfect place for a restful vacation. Thanks also to you and your staff for being flexible and accommodating us after our flight was cancelled and we arrived a day late. We will be sure to return to villa Diva for our next vacation to the USVI.
- S.T. Elm Grove, WI

This was our first visit to St. Thomas, so we weren't sure what to expect. It was fabulous! The villa was lovely, spacious, well appointed, and conveniently located, with a view to die for. It was hard to leave every day to do the normal tourist activities...we just wanted to stay on the balcony or in the pool,gazing at the unending beauty. We will definitely return next year!
- R.K.S. Atlanta, GA

We had a wonderful time at Diva. The location is ideal-our adult "kids" even jogged to Magen's Bay! The house was perfect for a gathering of family and friends who live across the country. We had lots of room for everyone and loved the layout of the house. It was a perfect spot for those of us who wanted to just kick back and spend quiet time on the covered deck and also for the younger group who spend their time exploring the island. Best of all was the view! I'll keep that image of Magen's Bay in my mind until the next trip.
