My wife and I have stayed here now four years in a row. We simply love it. Frenchman's Bay is about two miles from Charlotte Amalie and all of the shopping, nightlife, etc. It is far enough away to provide peace and quiet. The cruise ships parade by this location every morning and night. The property faces West for phenomenal sunsets. The hosts are very pleasant people who make you feel at home. They can rent you a car also. The property provides what you need (beach chairs, coolers, light cooking, internet) and nothing you don't need. There is a private beach that is at the end of a wooded trail. Short drive to Red Hook. Have already booked with them for next year.

Room Tip: Each unit is different so it is best to discuss your needs with Leah.

We stayed in the Frenchman Loft for 4 nights and absolutely loved it! This place is everything it is advertised to be and MORE! The pool deck overlooks the bay with a view that is out of this world - what a way to greet the day! The surrounding beaches and towns are wonderful and Leah and Gunner were great hosts. We rented the Jeep they offer and had a such a blast exploring the area. Can’t wait to go back!

The villa sits atop a hill looking down to Frenchman's Bay . We were there for a seminar which was given at the Marriott Frenchman's bay resort. The resort was overpriced and staying with Leah and Gunnar at the villa was a much better value. They are fantastic hosts and thought of everything. Chairs, cooler, towels, snorkeling gear and carrying bag for the trips to the beach. If you wanted to hang out, they have a circular pool that is drenched with sunshine and Leah provides guests with a bottle of Caribbean "juice" (rum) so you can make your own tropical drink. The room that we stayed had a loft which is cool, refrigerator, hot plate ,toaster to help with the morning power up. Leah also provided a list of local restaurants to help decide where to eat. Our favorite is the Old Stone Farm restaurant, we would go back there in a heartbeat. You can rent cars from Leah and Gunnar which is a better deal than from the rental car places at the airport. Their directions to their home is spot on as soon as you figure out how to drive on the left(if you are from the States).
There are too many good things to say about Villa Marbella. When we visit St. Thomas again, we will be looking forward to staying at the Villa.

PS: Jaegar and Jenny are also very welcoming to guests. The family dog and cat!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great for sleeping. With the cool tropical winds at night, there is not much need...

You'll feel at home at the Villa Marbella Suites. A great place with amazing views! Leah has thought of EVERYthing you will need - besides the usual coffee, sugar, shampoo and conditioner, she also provides granola bars,beach chairs, beach towels, games, suntan lotion, bug spray, a binder of useful St. Thomas information and what a nice surprise to see a welcome gift waiting for us! If you rent a car from Leah, she will pick you up at the airport and drop you off there or to the ferry dock (We were going on to St. Johns next). The pool deck is a great place to watch sunsets and the cruise ships leaving. Leah has a GREAT personality and gave us wonderful information about beaches, places to eat, and strategies to avoid the masses of cruise ship visitors. You be very pleased with your decision to stay at Villa Marbella Suites.

This villa is in a nice part of the island, where you feel safe. The Villa is very clean and up to date with nice and comfortable furniture. We opted to rent the car from them, so they pick you up at the airport and dropped us off, which was awesome !!! They explained the area and showed us landmarks since most of the streets are not marked with street signs, plus telling us places to eat and shop. The view from the villa is spectacular , you a full view of the ocean and can see the cruise ships past to go into port along with the perfect view of the sunsets.

Sadly, Leah and Gunnar had a family emergency and needed to leave the island but they arranged for their friend Lezli to come and take over for them. Lezli was incredible nice and helpful with anything we asked, explaining where to go and things to do. She kept the place running and everyone happy. We hadn't been back to St. Thomas in 25 years, so having Lezli available was very beneficial.
We would definitely stay with Villa Marbella again. We had the frenchman suite, which has a huge outdoor balcony and the best view of the ocean.

This was our second time staying with Leah at Villa Marbell and this time it was extra special because we were on our honeymoon. Leah had a bottle of champagne on ice for us when we arrived which was very thoughtful. Villa Marbella does an excellant job of balancing the fine art of being available to you whenver you may need them, and yet, making it seem that you have all the privacy in the world. We will return again for a third, fourth, five, etc. visit.

Beautiful view, private beach, nice owner.....What else could we wish for???:-)
Everything was just perfect. We rented a car from Leah, what was a big help to get around the island.
The room has everything what you need to feel like home, and if you don´t want to go to the beach, there is the pool to cool down and drink your rum and cola....
Leah is a perfect host, and Villa Marbella is the best place to stay on St. Thomas.

We will always remember for this vacation and can´t wait to get back once again....:-)
