Sunset Gardens Guesthouse in St. Thomas was the filthiest place I have ever stayed at in my entire life of traveling. I won't even begin to go into the dirt that was in our rental. We wanted to move out, but knew that we would not get our money back, so we made the best of it, but it really...

Norma, Thank you for taking the time out of your busy life to review our guesthouse. I apologize that met a room that was not cleaned to your standards. This is not the norm here and as you saw other rooms while here, you are aware this was an isolated incident. As for the price of our room, yes we...

Booked a 3 bedroom apartment for 4 nights. We arrived and came to an outdated, absolutely disgusting hotel. The doors were all falling of the hinges. Filth everywhere. The floors looked like they have never been cleaned. The refrigerator had live and dead insects in it and was completely Frozen at the top. The spiral staircase was put together with...

Thank You for reviewing our property. I apologize that you found our 3 Bedroom Unit unacceptable for you and your family. Expedia did a property inspection just prior to your arrival and this unit was one of the units they saw. We do not claim to be a pristine rental resort and we work hard to do upkeep on all...

After reading multiple reviews about this property, I decided to book my 6 night stay here. Someone recommended room 5 and that's the room that I received. Although I booked a mountain view room, I was given room 5. I appreciate my request being honored. Upon checking in, I think that Deb was more excited about my transfer centennial gift...

Monica, thank you for taking the time to review our property. I understand the issue with updates in the rooms. We are constantly trying to upgrade the property and will be working on the room upgrades in the not too distant future.

I stayed there for 2 days while waiting to check in to my rental property. Bring your own food to cook. No place on site to eat. I had reserved again for another week while still waiting to move. I cancelled when my new place was available but had to pay full price $954.00 cancellation fee. Was not happy about...

Hello Esther, We enjoyed your visit with us. We were excited when you cancelled as we knew your place had finally opened up. We never charged you for the booking. So you should be happy about that. Best of luck to you in your new life here on St. Thomas. Deb

This is where me and my girlfriend got engaged. Sitting out on our private balcony overlooking the amazing and beautiful St. Thomas. AC worked very well, had a full kitchen and a huge bathroom. We would just sit and drink on our balcony and just dream of living on the island full time. We would love to visit again.

Request room 5! Service was good! No early check-in. We walked to a shopping center 15min walk downhill lol but it was fun. Taxi service is $20 cash from the hotel to the airport. But there is a safari taxi that's only $1 cash to get around the island! Ice is $1, our room had a full but small kitchen...

We booked a room here online for just the first night, because of it's close proximity to the airport and the marina. Once we arrived, we knew we would stay for the duration of our trip!
