FAQ – Private Caribbean Pool Villa St.Thomas USVI vacation rental
How do I get from the airport to the Villa?
You can rent a car at the airport (be sure to reserve in advance), OR get a private taxi for about $100, OR choose an airport taxi van for approximately $15.00 US per person. The taxi vans hold 10-12 people (plus luggage) and they stop at various resorts along the way, to drop off their passengers. This is the most economical way to travel.

How far is Red Hook?
The Town of Red Hook is about 1 mile from our complex. If you take the Safari bus, It’ll be a quick 5 minute ride and cost’s $1.00 each. You will have to take a taxi back to the villa though, as the Safari bus only goes one way. Cost of the taxi back, is about $4.00 each
Where is the Ferry to St. John?
The Ferry to St. John is right at the beginning of the town of Red Hook. Right next to ‘Fish Tails’ Restaurant. The Safari bus normally stops right there as there are many people who get on & off the Safari at that point.
Where is the nearest restaurant?
Lime Garden Lounge is located right on our complex property, near the lobby. It’s a fun tapas style restaurant, with a good view of St. John!. The next closest, is ‘Slice VI”. A neat pizza place located at the Sapphire Village/Hill complex.
Where is the Grocery Store?
‘Moe’s Fresh Market’ is the closest grocery store, and is located in Red Hook just across and down the street from the ferry terminal. Moe’s is a very nice upscale store and has most of everything you will need. They also offer complimentary provisioning services if you like. A larger and more local flavored grocery store, ‘Food Center’ is just another mile down the road.
Can I rent snorkel gear?
Yes!, Because our complex is run like a boutique hotel, and we are part of the resort program, snorkel gear for our guests is complimentary. As are the (daily) exchangeable pool towels. You only have to ask the front desk!
