Everyone knows that the best day of your US Virgin Islands vacation is the day you spend on the water...which is why people typically get their boat day booked right after they book their flights and lodging.
Where you stay on your trip to the USVI also plays a big role in your overall vacation experience. There are lots of places to choose from, both on St Thomas and St John. Each island has different areas, each with their own pros and cons. Over the years, we have stayed all over on both islands, so if you need some guidance choosing where to stay, please reach out.
Since we started Shades of Blue Charters we have made lots of new friends, many of whom help to promote our business. Some of our new island friends have rental properties, so if you are looking for a place to stay during your visit to the USVI, please consider staying with one of our lodging partners.
Ayiti Cottage on St John
Oleg's place overlooks Fish Bay on St John and is very affordable and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of Cruz Bay. If peace and quiet and comfortable accommodations for 2 is your thing, take a look at Ayiti Cottage.
A 1BR and a Studio unit located at the Sapphire Beach Resort on the east end of St Thomas. Sapphire Beach Resort has a beautiful beach, a marina (where we keep Island Girl), pools, multiple restaurants, and is 5 minutes from Red Hook. I have stayed at both of these units and they are super nice and very well equipped. Mark & Peggy are friends of mine and are super accommodating. They have added lots of nice little touches to make your stay in the islands easier.
This 2BR house overlooking beautiful Magens Bay is owned by my friend, Battman (aka Alan Batt). If you've never stayed out on the Peterborg peninsula, you are in for a treat. The house is spacious and comfortable and is in a gated community where it's very quiet and peaceful. The views of Magens Bay from the deck are fantastic. The best part of our days were the morning coffee and afternoon cocktails on the deck watching everything from local wildlife to mega yachts coming and going. Conveniently located 5 minutes from Magens Beach and 15 minutes from town.
