This was our first trip to St Thomas and St John. We really enjoyed our stay on the island at Villa Marbella. Leah and Gunnar were very accommodating hosts. We stayed in the Cruzan room which was very comfortable. The room and pool area had a great view of the water and island. We also enjoyed hiking down to the...

This was our third time at Villa Marbella Suites and we are already thinking about the fourth. A great place to enjoy St. Thomas. The addition of rental cars since our last visit made it even better. My first review was May 2010, and I wasn't sure then I wanted to share this great find with anyone else, but the...

We just spent a week at Villa Marbella in the Frenchman View Room. We can't even begin to express what a great experience it was. We rented a jeep from Leah and Gunner, and they picked us up from the airport even! We got a new jeep, which was necessary for the island travel. Our darling room was absolutely spotless,...

This was our second stay at Villa Marbella. I wrote a long review in March for the first time we stayed in Feb. 2013. I wrestle with my conscience because Leah and Gunnar deserve the great reviews but I'm worried I won't be able to get a room if they get too popular. Villa Marbella is near the top of...

Great place to stay in St. Thomas! The room very comfortable, new flat screen TV's and a beautiful view of the Caribbean right outside your door.. Also, very affordable cars and jeeps to rent directly from the owners and they will pick you up at the airport.

We very much enjoyed our stay here. It's a great location, away from the hustle and bustle, and so much better than staying at a large resort. As others have said, it's more like staying with a friend. Leah and Gunnar are very friendly and extremely helpful. We stayed in the Mango room, which definitely fits the definition of "cozy",...

The Villa Marbella Suites is a great place to stay and definitely lucked out finding this place! The location is convenient to everything. My room was comfortable and everything I needed was included, right down to the Keurig machine and welcome bottle of rum! The hosts are also extremely helpful and friendly. I loved staying at this property and can't...

Before we arrived, we e-mailed Leah several times, asking questions. She was so gracious to answer every question. Leah and Gunner picked us up at the airport. Leah greeted me with a hug. Made me feel so welcomed. It was more like staying at a friends house than at a hotel. Leah and Gunner were always there if you needed...

We had a wonderful experience from start to end at this charming villa. My girlfriend and I stayed in the Frenchman's View Loft for one week. It has a spectacular view of the ocean and the bay. Gunnar provided transport from/to the airport and was courteous and informed on the history of the surrounding area. He gave us all types...

Leah and Gunner have put together the best value in St Thomas. They have a reasonably priced and attractive residence in a SAFE, scenic area of St Thomas, so you can enjoy your time in the islands. They have a lot of little extras which make it nice as well. I would recommend renting a JEEP (not a car) from...
