Our 5-day stay here was the highlight of the trip. Beautiful setting, welcoming hosts and convenient safe location made it ideal for traveling with another couple. Night life is very limited in Charlotte Amalie, so we could stock our own fridge and relax by the pool. Jessica's delicious breakfasts were a great start to a long day exploring and shopping....

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

Hats off to our hosts Jessica and Mark! Our boutique cruise line embarked directly from St. Thomas. We wanted to get there a couple days early to be sure all our luggage arrived and to explore the island. At Home In The Tropics (AHITT) was PERFECT for us. I say "for us" because it does have some limitations. Namely STEPS....

This is the annex of the old Governor's Palace from which were obtained 4 comfortable rooms with views of Charlotte Amalie and the nearby islands. The Inn is equipped with all facilities, including a tasty breakfast prepared personally every morning by Jessica and the use of the pool. Absolutely to recommend for location, cleanliness and hospitality. The best in St....

I stayed with my girlfriend for a girls week away on 11/8-11/13/2016 at At Home in the Tropics. It was our first time there and it will not be our last. The view of the Caribbean Sea is beautiful and is the view you get while eating the delicious freshly cooked breakfasts Jessica made every day. The rooms were spotless,...

We recently returned home from At Home in The Tropics Bed and Breakfast. Our room was very clean and cozy with a wonderful view of the harbor. The pool was wonderful to dip in after being out sightseeing. Jessica served absolutely delicious breakfasts day after day. Mark and Jessica have a real gem here and made our stay the icing...

We had such high hopes for our 4 day getaway....but they were dashed by the attitudes of the owners. Pam was so controlling...everything from the menu being meat-free and tasteless to actually chastising our efforts at making toast. The last straw came at checkout. We vacated our room at the appointed time and went over to the pool area to...

I'm very sorry that you had a negative experience with the previous owners. We strive to provide our guests with a variety of freshly homemade options at breakfast, and tailor "meat free" or "gluten free" only per a guest request. This may be different than what you experienced in the past. Should your travel plans bring you back to St...

An incredible stay with Matt and Pam! Every morning started with a great breakfast. No one rushing, everyone taking the time to chat. We spent the morning on the pergola watching the cruise ships come in before we ambled off to explore the islands. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay there.

At Home in the Tropics is a wonderful hideaway tucked on the hillside in Charlotte Amalie. We stayed our first 2 nights here before going to the BVI's for a week. We liked the convenient location, which meant we didn't have to rent a car as we could walk to many shops and restaurants but could still rent a taxi...

2 couples together - chose the 2 rooms with an adjoining outdoor balcony - fantastic views. Nice little outdoor pool, amazing home made breakfast each day by the owners, served poolside. Easy walking distance into town (though lots of stairs). Would definitely stay here agin.
