We ran into the Island View Guesthouse in kind of a panic - freshly arrived in St. Thomas for a week, our original hotel (Starz) had lost our reservation and had no rooms available, even though we booked nearly two months in advance. Luckily, a friend of my father's was able to recommend Island View Guest House, and so we...

I cannot thank the staff enough for their open arms and willingness to help with anything. The room was super clean, bed comfortable, and continental breakfast was great. Very affordable too. I stayed for one night with my two sons. The owner was hands on and helped me with getting me a cab and the staff even offered to cook...

We stayed here on two occasions for one night each time. At the beginning of our holiday and at the end. The rooms were clean but very cheaply put together. Not a place you would want tomhang out at. The buildings look old and rickity and the furnishings very very motel like. The staff are indeed very friendly and accomodating....

We spent three nights at the Island View prior to a 7 day sailing excursion. Our room 15 had a beautiful view of the bay. The king size bed was new and a masterpiece of comfort. The room clean, well ventilated, and had good A/C. We only ran the A/C at night simply because I like it cold when I...

Absolutely LOVED this place!!! My husband and I stayed for three nights and I could have stayed longer. The room was very comfortable and had a wonderful view. The owners were just as nice as they could be and made us feel very welcome. We ate dinner there two out of the three nights and words can't describe how delicious...

I will be looking forward to the next time I can visit. Wonderful dinner service, great food, pleasant surroundings and a feeling like...

We wanted to stay on St. Thomas for a night before heading back home. A friend recommended the restaurant at Island View but after looking at reviews, we decided to spend the night. The room was spotlessly clean with a balcony from which you enjoyed a spectacular vista. The bed was super comfortable with impeccable bedding and with windows open...

The views are incredible at this family-owned guest house. It is located on the hillside overlooking the city of Charlotte Amalie -- very close to the Airport. The views are spectacular. The ONLY drawback was "on a Saturday night" there is quite a bit of noise coming from the restaurant until late and from the city later. Local roosters make...

We did not stay here, but we ate here at the recommendation of our concierge at Marriott's Frenchman's Cove. It's a fun experience, in that you make your own salad from some limited salad offerings (for $7 extra) and there is an honor bar where you make your own drinks for $5 each. (Wine offerings are very limited.) It's a...

Wonderful location with friendly staff and owners. We take visitors here for dinner and always have a great time. Wonderful views, relaxed comfortable dining in a cozy dining environment. Well worth the drive to find it above Crown Bay.
