Thalassa is an intimate, rustic vacation villa on the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Drive up was exciting but doable with a 4 wheel drive jeep, especially when you drive up the final driveway. BUT the views made it all worthwhile. Spacious living room and kitchen area screened in with lovely breezes making air conditioning unused. Decks on all sides. The outdoor showers were fun. Beds comfortable. Need new pillows. Relaxing home after full...

Management response:

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and got to experience the steady, cool breezes thanks to Thalassa's unobstructed, hilltop location (and all of its incline!). Thanks for your thoughtful feedback and for letting us know the pillows could use replacing - we're on it. We'd welcome having you back anytime.
