Don't even know where to start. Mark and Jessica were fantastic hosts. They were mindful of everyone's personal space but always seem to be right there when you had a question. The property is perfectly located and the view was fantastic which over looked the bay and the town. Room was exactly as seen in the photos. We walked down the 109 steps down into the town several times to eat at the many local restaurants and bars. Hitting the chicken truck on the main waterfront road is a must! If you want a quiet place to stay and be fed a great breakfast (Local coffee they served was the best) then look no further. No resort fee, no parking fee, free use of beach chairs, snorkel gear, Coolers and other items is a big added bonus. As McCarthy said when he left the Philippines...."I shall return" applies to At Home in the Tropics for us!

In a word, At Home in the Tropics is perfect! It starts with the setting, which is not only gorgeous, but very conveniently located a few blocks from the main St Thomas shopping/eating district. Our room was spotless (cleaned very day!) and plenty big, and had everything we needed for a comfortable week away. The pool and breakfast area are delightful. The breakfasts themselves were one of the highlights of our trip… fresh and delicious, a different breakfast every day (and mine were vegetarian, as requested). Jess and Mark were lovely hosts, offering many tips and suggestions for local touring and transportation. We can’t recommend At Home in the Tropics enough! Stop looking… this is the place!

A great find in Charlotte-Amelie! Our hosts were amazing (even the 4 legged ones) and we were treated to excellent breakfasts every day. The pool was a luxury after spending the day walking in the warm air.

We had a wonderful stay at this property. Mark and Jess were very kind, hospitable hosts who gave fantastic recommendations about sights to see and where to eat, etc. Our stay here was a relaxing, enjoyable get-away that felt like paradise. We truly did feel “at home in the tropics.” Everything was exquisite, from the food to the accommodations, location, and scenery. While on this trip, we fell in love with St. Thomas, and we can’t wait to go back!

Our stay could not have been better. We do not enjoy large hotels or resorts. At Home in the Tropics is small and quaint.Jess and Mark are amazing host. The view from the deck where we enjoyed our morning coffee and spectacular breakfast, was a wonderful beginning of each day. Everything Jess made was so tasty and Mark always made sure we had plenty coffee. They were both very helpful with information about things to do, restaurant’s and beaches. We also enjoyed hanging out with the resident dogs Ocho and Reno. Thank you for everything. We would definitely stay here again. Mary and Bill
