A friend and I stayed at Wendy Snodgrass' wonderful B&B (only 4 rooms) for five days over Christmas 2006 and we can't say enough good things about the ambiance and the owner! While a bit hard to find and a fairly steep climb from central St. Thomas, it is well worth making the effort. The view is superb, the decor and spacious living areas cannot be improved upon, and Wendy's attention to detail and hospitality are unbeatable. She made incredible gourmet breakfasts and arrangements for taxis, in-house massages, dinner reservations, etc.---a superb chef/concierge/hostess. While the bedrooms are not large, each had airconditioning and a modern and generous bathroom. There is a large patio for sunbathing, and a pool-with-a-view. I highly recommend Bellavista as a charming, personalized alternative to the large resorts in the islands.
