We had an unbelievable time. Working with the House Manager was a breeze. They were always willing to answer any questions and we made use of the offer to pick up groceries for us. They also had a taxi driver waiting at the airport for us, which was such a help in the craziness of the arrival. The house manager was also always accessible via phone whenever we had a question. Great hospitality! I work in the industry myself and I can tell you that they knocked it out of the park. The house was BEYOND what we imagined, even from the pictures. It was spotless. The groceries waiting for us were a lifesaver as all we had to do was fire up the grill and relax night one. We used the pool and hot tub every day either before or after beach trips and boat trips. Sunrises and sunsets were the stuff of postcards! We followed many of their recommendations. My favorite beach they suggested was Secret Harbor. I think we spend the whole day in the water! Red Hook was great. We spent our nights out there at a few of the many restaurants and bars. We met a taxi driver our first trip to Red Hook and he became our personal driver for the week when we wanted to have a few or more drinks. Driving was a breeze to and from the house otherwise. Two of us took a trip to town when there were cruise ships docked- it was a crowded mess! We realized how lucky we were at Casa Azure! You can see no one else your trip if you so chose or hang out in Red Hook if you feel like getting out there with others. We were truly spoiled and did not want to leave. We cannot wait to return, hopefully staying at Casa Azure again!
Our 8 night stay was absolutely wonderful! The views from the Villa are stupendous. You can see White Bay Beach on Jost Van Dyke from the upper deck! Truly breaktaking. My family joined us for the second year in a row on St. Thomas. The Villa is great for three couples. We even had our 2 1/2 y/o grandson along who enjoyed everything as much as we did. The highlight of the trip, my son proposing to his girlfriend. Maybe we'll be back next year for the wedding! Thank you so much for your hospitality!
We just returned from 6-night stay with 2 other couples and couldn't be happier. The property was exactly as stated except the view-no way to explain how beautiful that was!!! Loved waking up every morning to that. There was enough space for everyone and everything we needed was available in the kitchen. House Manager offered information about local activities and were very responsive throughout the process. We visited the Ritz Carlton beach nearby & one across the road from that; Magen's Beach (gorgeous), enjoyed the ice cream shakes at Udder's, took a recommended fishing excursion, toured the Nat'l Park on St. John, and swam in Cinnamon Bay Beach (our favorite!). Check out the Carribean Steakhouse in Red Hook and Grand Cru restaurant in Yacht Harbor. Thanks for the relaxing and memorable vacation!
We stayed at Casa Azure in August and will be back every year! We go to St. Thomas every year and this is the best 3 bedroom villa we have every stayed at! The views are STUPENDOUS! I counted 16 islands from the Great Room alone. The Mega yachts and ferries cruise by all day long! It is very quiet at night and the laser lit multi color pool is magnficent! All 3 bedrooms have down island views and are air conditioned. The carved Teak poster beds are beautiful! Can't wait to get back!!!
I and my family stayed at Casa Azure in April. The house was everything we were hoping it would be. I was a little concerned about it being a duplex but that was never an issue. If anyone lives on the other side, we never heard or saw them. We liked the arrangement of the house. It worked well for us. We traveled with our children and grandchildren who are 1 1/2 and 5. We could easily keep track of the grand kids on the lower and upper decks. Both the hot tub and pool were wonderful. My grandson looked for the iguana which was in the trees every morning. Even saw a deer right off the patio. The view from the decks was incredible. I loved watching the ferries go by. My granddaughter still runs to the window now that she is back home and waits for the boats. The weather was incredible. It was between 84 and 87 and not humid. Loved it as it was still snowing back home when we left for the trip. We did manage to lock ourselves out once but Irene came to our rescue. The door locks when you shut it so you need to carry the keys. I want to thank Doug and Bonnie for all their suggestions and help with this trip. We got in late at night and it was wonderful to have someone waiting for us at the airport. We probably would not have found the place in the dark without an escort. We rented 2 cars and we had no difficulty with the roads. We brought are Garmin along and it navigated us everywhere which was wonderful because there are some roads there that I would never consider driving on. The beaches were gorgeous. The water was crystal clear. Snorkeling was great!. We tried the grill and couldn't get it to light. I emailed the house manager and someone was out to look at it in the morning and it was replaced before supper that night. I can't even get my husband to fix things that fast. We loved the island. Traveled to St. Johns and that was beautiful also but in a different way. We ate at the Big Bambooze and Molly Malones. Both were great. I was surprised by the high prices of the food in the grocery stores. We spent most of our time at the house but visited a different beach every day. When we needed anything, we ran into Red Hook. Everyone was helpful and friendly. We did spend one day at Charlotte and went to Easter service at the Frederick Lutheran Church which was another delight. This trip will be remembered as one of my best. I hope I can get back soon. Thanks for such a wonderful vacation.
We stayed at Casa Azure for a week. 3 couples all celebrating 10 years of marriage. We were very happy that we selected Casa Azure for our stay. The views of Red Hook, St. Johnâs and the BVIs were amazing. It was fun to see all the sail boats and ferries go back and forth from Red Hook to St. Johns (although some of them were loudâ¦) As mentioned in other reviews, the home is a duplex with 2 bedrooms on the main level (and deck w/ Hot tub) and one down stairs bedroom with kitchenette (with patio and pool). The layout couldnât have worked better for our 3 couples and 2 were early risers (who shared the main level) and one that like to spend a little more R&R time in their room (they had the downstairs.) My only complaint with the lower level is you have to go out the front door to walk down the steps (and the door requires a key for entry.) It would be wonderful if there were stairs from the upper deck to the lower patioâ¦ Beyond that, Casa Azure was very welcoming, comfortable and up-to-date. It fit our need perfectly, and trying to plan our next trip back. The location of Casa Azure was great. Away from Charlotte Amalie where all the cruise ships port and all the crowds. It is a 2 minute drive (or 8 min walk) to the Ritz, if you want a beach. 5 minute drive to Red Hook, which was our hub for everything we did, Fishing, Boat trip to BVIs, and day trips to St. Johns. Couple other recommendations: If you like to Fish, go through SeeSki, and ask for Raymond. He has a nice boat (not real good for Marlin, but they werenât biting when we were there.) and think he is one of the top, if not the top guide in Red Hook. Other boats went out and came back with just a couple fish, and we had good luck (other than the shark fishingâ¦) If you havenât been to the BVIs, definitely take a full day, with captain, to the BVIs. When we go back, we will do 2 days, cutting our stops in half allowing for more time at each. I recommend you strongly consider Casa Azure.
A 10 day vacation in St Thomas, very good. Staying in a private villa, excellent. Staying at Casa Azure, PRICELESS! We had the most relaxing vacation of our lives. Can't say enough about how great the experience was and I highly recommend this property to any and all who wish to vacation in ST Thomas. It's location is very handy to Red Hook and the ferry to ST John as well as the services of the Ritz Carlton. The house is low maintenance and ideally set up for up to 3 couples. The views are mesmerizing. Can't wait to return.
We went to Casa Azure in July. Be prepared when you open the front door of the Villa and be stunned by the breathtaking veiw's through out the entire house. The photos don't do it justice! The Deck is huge. Spent most of our time out there and watched the Boats go by. Just a wonderful place for our trip. Stayed 10 days, went by to quickly!

My family and I stayed to celebrate our cousins recent arrival of a new baby girl- there were 6 of us total and Casa Azure was just lovely. There was the jacuzzi on the amazing deck with breathtaking views that the little cousins just loved to play in- we BBQ'ed every night and listened to tree frogs and felt the breeze and looked at tons of stars! The huge pool downstairs provided some fun for the after hours party with the grown ups and the studio downstairs was perfect for the little ones to sleep and not be disturbed by the rest of us! The kitchen was great and the living room provided amazing views of the islands while we sipped coffee every morning. My husband and I ran around the point every morning and then we all would walk to the Ritz-Carlton for some beach time. We loved our stay and our whole family had an amazing time. Bonnie was so helpful with night life activities and family friendly things to do, we even paid to have our groceries taken care of so we didn't need to waste time in a grocery store! Thank you for a great stay!
