Perfect seclusion without isolation
This place felt like home the minute I arrived! I loved everything about it...the location was perfect for us; we prefer seclusion without being isolated, and this fits exactly. The on site property manager Debbie was absolutely amazing; she knew exactly when we needed something, or when we wanted privacy. We slept with the windows open all night, and despite the 80-85 degrees outdoors, it was comfortable 24/7 for 2 weeks. Everything we needed was provided, and if I was missing something, Debbie was prompt and helpful! The pool was clean and refreshing while we were there as well. The community is amazing! I met great people, and am looking forward to seeing them again... Debbie, Heidi, Chaun and Rob, Celia, Nelson and so many more!
Things to know (none of these bothered me):
I wouldn't call it a swimming beach, but it fills my soul the same. Enjoy the boats passing nearby. You can swim next door at Hull just a few minutes away.
The road isn't that steep, and a car is fine for getting up and down 333 to the community, and the surrounding roads. Beep your horn going around any 'blind' curves, and go SLOW.
There is wildlife: chickens (yes, roosters!), goats, horses, cats, sweet dogs (of course, let them meet you at their pace).
Weekends are a little busier, but during the week it's pretty quiet.
The waves are LOUD, or at least when we were there. You are right on the beach.
Bugs: didn't have any in the condo, but 10 or so ants; I smashed them and no more showed up. There were some wasps/hornets in some of the foliage near the beach, so if you are allergic, bring an epi pen just in case. If not, there is some vinegar in the cupboard that worked great for me. There is also bug spray available for the rest of the biting creatures.
The internet worked great, and my cell (Sprint) worked fine as well. There are only a few TV channels, not that you'll need it!
The full kitchen has dishes, pots, pans, etc.
The bed is comfortable in the main bedroom. Leave the windows open. The window AC did work great when my husband had a bug for a day. We never used it otherwise.
The description is very accurate, and I'll probably think of 100s of other things I love about this place later, but I'm out of space!! THANK YOU JEFF! And Dorit, for sharing your condo with us! 100% see you next time as our primary (only?) location!
Beach front getaway
Condo was very clean and spacious. On site manager and neighbors couldn’t have been more helpful. Neighborhood still in storm recovery. Driving to the property was a challenge, and restaurant & stores are not close. A quiet, peaceful getaway spot.
Nature lover's paradise
We fell in love with this secluded slice of heaven! This condo is unbelievably close to the ocean. We stayed in early March, and a constant strong breeze made for the perfect temperature (outside and inside the house) and the sound of crashing waves 24/7. We only saw a few boats cruise by the bay the whole week we were there. It's remarkably secluded, which we LOVED.
Falling asleep to the sound of waves and a breeze on our faces was like a dream come true. It was surreal. Having screen doors across the whole living room was fantastic because that let in a strong breeze, and we liked falling asleep on the couch there. Enjoyed the balcony to soak in the quiet, waves and wind. During the night, you look out and see so many stars. There are no hotel lights or crowds of people like you get at a resort area. It's very peaceful.
While some parts of the island are dicey, we felt 100% safe here, and we brought our toddler. We met two amazing locals, Debbie and Nelson, in the condo development who treated us like family. Debbie even ran to the store for infant Tylenol and Pedialyte because our son got very ill as soon as we arrived in St. Thomas. They gave us many great tips. Make sure you talk to Nelson about paddling/swimming in that bay based on currents and wind -- he's very experienced, and his guidance was spot-on. Follow his advice, and wear the life jacket provided. That bay has uniquely wild currents.
We only paddled from the house when the bay calmed down, due to the strong current and constant crashing waves that time of year. It was fun, as we are experienced paddlers, and one of my best memories of the trip. Having Jeff's stand-up paddleboard and snorkeling gear there was so nice! If you're a hardcore SUPer, bring your own ankle leash because waves will knock you off the board unless the water goes super flat. :)
From the house, a quiet 15-minute hike through the jungle led us to a secluded beach where only a few locals could be seen. At times, we had the beach to ourselves! We hope no one else besides the locals and people who rent Jeff's house find out about this beach, because we plan to come back and want it to be our "secret" then, too.
Note: Due to hurricanes, the beach in front of the condo does look different than what's pictured. There's not much of a sand "beach" -- it's mainly rocks/coral/debris. But we didn't mind.
Also, Jeff was super helpful in answering my questions. This condo exceeded our expectations. We'll be back!
Terrific stay at Dorothea Beach!
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Dorothea Beach! Jeff’s property is definitely off the beaten path, which was exactly what we were looking for. We had a very relaxing stay, enjoyed the rolling waves, scenic views and beautiful weather.
The home has everything you could need, it is well as appointed and very comfortable! Some of the surrounding units are still recovering after the hurricanes, which honestly was a bit concerning at first. The property manger took the time to explain some of the challenges and she put my mind at ease. She was on site and accessible. The owner Jeff was also very responsive if needed.
Just up the road is a convienance store if you need some basics and a fantastic restaurant called “Thireteen”. They have amazing food and we met some wonderful people here!
The location is about 15 minutes to some of the tourist attractions and town. With the help of the local folks we were able to find some additional beaches that you will not find on “the map”. All extremely beautiful and very secluded. Luckily we had a Jeep, theses spots were rough to access - but completely worth it!
We would highly recommend Jeff’s home - we had a wonderful stay & met some amazing people! Thank you for your hospitality!
We enjoyed our stay. Thank you for allowing us into your home. We fell in love with the island & community.
After Hurricane Maria damaged infrastructure on St Thomas, our airline cancelled our flights to the island. Even though we were 3 months out and the owner could have possibly had all services restored to his condo prior to our reservation and held us to the letter of the contract, he was very accommodating in accepting our request for cancellation and processing a refund. I would definitely do business with him again [and will!].
