“Great memories made”
Reviewed 27 April 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We stayed here in January when we were down for a wedding. We stayed with 3 other couples, who flew in later than us. We stayed a few days prior with another couple at their rental, and upon contacting Joedna about the possibility of checking in early, she was very prompt in getting back to us which we appreciated. She said yes and that her sons were their cleaning it, but gave us his sons cell phone number so we were able to text. We never met Joedna personally, and our friend Emily is the one who set up everything for us, so we appreciate the trust in letting us get their early to get settled. Her sons, (I believe Cobia and Todd?) could not have been nicer, greeted us there and told us to call them with any questions during our stay.

The Villa itself has a lot of personality of a "beach house" had plenty of room for 8 people although it was too bad 2 couples had to share a room, but the couple that joined us last minute before booking volunteered to sleep in the loft, which unfortunate doesn't provide any privacy for anyone in the room. Would have made a great room for a couple with a smaller child or 2 though. Our bedroom was directly above the kitchen with a staircase leading up it. It was the smallest of the 3 rooms but had a beautifully view of the bay, adequate closet/dresser space, Flat screens in every bedroom. Our room had an adjoining bathroom which either of the other bedrooms could share which worked out fine. 2 couples to a bathroom, we just had a "girls bathroom, boys bathroom' :) only a few of us utilized the outdoor bathroom. Very unique idea, but I couldn't get used to the idea of showering with nature! The downstairs bedroom was room, with its own little patio, although there was a lot of brush surrounding it but still had a bit of a view. We spent every morning on the patio having coffee and every evening having beers. Was a gorgeous view from the deck, but that was about the only place you had a breathtaking view. However, the "steps" leading down to the "beach" were very scary and unsteady- worked for eight 26 year-olds,but I wouldn't want my child or 65 year old parents trying to make their way down to the sun deck. We didnt spend much time down their due to the grueling "hike" and was hard to carry much down their. We did get in the water once, which was scary....wish it would had been calm but we were knocked over on the rocks by the waves.... Again, not a place I would want my child in.

All in all we had a great stay. The house was pretty humid compared to other villas we had visited while their, but it wasn't bad. Was air conditioned. We utilized the Bose sound system and having a nice washer and dryer was an added bonus. Was pretty clean, however our sheets did have a few "stains" which appeared to be of blood or wine and found a few hairs in bed. The windows could have been cleaned also- dead flies and bugs in the window right behind our bed which was gross. Huge collection of books, had we had more time I would have chosen a few to read at night, but we were mainly their to have a fun vacation with friends and it did not disappoint. Definitely wasn't a 5-star villa, but that wasn't what we were looking for. Thank you to Joedna and her sons for a trip we won't ever forget:) Was an EXCELLENT stay for the price.

“My granson said it best; "This is paradise!"”
Reviewed 22 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

When I first started planning a trip for us and our son's family, I wanted to make it a "trip of lifetime." Upon our arrival amily (4 adults and 2 children - 6 and 20 mths) at Casa Jo Mama, my 6 yr old grandson looked around and announced "This is paradise!" He was absolutely right. It is a beautiful home overlooking Magen's Bay; secluded, private, serene. Cobia made us feel right at home and was available if we needed anything. We loved the floor plan and Cobia provided a baby gates to keep the little one off the stairs and safe. We especially loved the uniqueness of the outdoor bath!

The walkway to the lower deck looks so natural, as if carved in by mother nature herself! While the water was too rough for us to snorkle while we were there, we truly enjoyed the lower deck; the waves crashing on the shore, watching the variety of marine life - lemon sharks, turtles, and various fish swim past, the pelicans and other birds as they dove for food, the sunshine and warm breeze, and the breathtaking view. It doesn't get any better than that!

While we enjoyed the sightseeing, activities and the beaches of the Virgin Islands, it was always enjoyable to come back "home" and relax in a family friendly atmosphere. Casa Jo Mama is among the most beautiful places on the island.

Thank you for fulfilling our dream of a "vacation of a lifetime"!

It is great to hear that you and your family had such a woinderful stay at Casa Jo Mama. It really is the perfect place to have famiily time and privacy and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.. The "Christmas winds" sometimes create swells in December and January. The variety of sea life is amazing.....tarpon and blue tang...parrot fish and turtles...it is a virtual aquarium!! .Guests often spend the day with a picnic on the sundeck...and it is a perfect place for cocktail hour at sunset. ...

“Beautiful home in a dream location”
Reviewed 31 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

Our family rented this wonderful home for ten days during the Christmas holiday. We had seven people and plenty of room. The outside deck has a retractable awning that makes the deck a favorite place to hang out - even in the mid afternoon. We loved the deck on Magens Bay and snorkeled in the shallow waters. There is so much to see and enjoy with this beautiful home.
The outside shower was a favorite for everyone. We enjoyed watching the hermit crabs off the deck and the iguanas on the rocks beside us. The views of Magens Bay are fantastic!
Cobia and his wife were very friendly and helpful. They met us at the airport and led us to the house. They also provided great tips on where to eat and where to go. We had such a great time we hated to leave. I would definitely recommend this house for any family that wants to stay in St. Thomas and be close to Magens Bay.

“Amazing Home!”
Reviewed 21 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

My wife and I had been planning this trip to St. Thomas for over a year with extensive research into where we wanted to stay. After searching long and hard, we came across Casa Jo Mama. This house was absolutely amazing! The view is unbelievable and the uniqueness of this property is unmatched. There are so many things that make this house the only choice when staying in St. Thomas. Whether it be the outdoor bathroom, the dock right on Magen's Bay, the deck with the best view on the island, the fantastic snorkeling right off the dock, the generator (which comes in handy with frequent island blackouts), spacious floor plan, etc. (too many others to name). We had a group of seven and it was accommodating with room to spare.

The homeowner (who lives close by) was also incredibly helpful throughout the whole stay as well. They met us at the airport (which was very helpful. Driving on the island is quite intimidating at first) and stocked the fridge with breakfast food for the next day. They really went above and beyond to make us feel at home and make sure we had the best time. Everything was greatly appreciated.

If you want true paradise, do yourself a favor and book this house. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Dustin...we love to hear how much your group enjoyed Casa Jo Mama and the Virgin Islands. It is truly a unique experience to be able to enjoy the water and snorkel...and have the privacy to to have "time alone" too...our son Cobia always takes a personal interest in our clients and we ALL appreciate that!! We always try to provide a stocked assortment of spices and condiments and paper supplies...and breakfast items for your first morning at Casa Jo Mama. As a repeat client you are entitled to a complimentary night with any 7 night rental.
