Great Quiet EscapePosted May 14, 2018
We had a great trip staying with Leah and Gunnar. The view and property are gorgeous and we couldn't ask for much more. The Island is still in rebuilding mode from the Hurricanes but Villa Marbella is in great shape. I recommend renting a car from them because it makes getting around the island much more convenient. Thank you for the great hospitality I will be back!

Great Location & StaffPosted Sep 15, 2017
Pros: Staff, Car Rental, Friendly Dogs
Villa Marbella is located in the "Up Country" with easy access to Charlotte Amalie and Red Hook (ferry to St. John's). The owner picked us up at the airport, and we were able to rent a Jeep directly from them without having to deal with an airport rental. The entire staff was very friendly and offered tips on restaurants and beaches. They provided snorkeling gear to use, and we had a bottle of rum waiting in our room. We especially enjoyed coming back after our day's adventure and sitting poolside playing with their two dogs: Jack Black & Lexi. Jack Black loved to retrieve tennis balls from the pool!! Looking forward to coming back to visit when we get the chance.

Room with a $20 million view.Posted Sep 4, 2017
When we arrived, we were greeted at the airport by one of the owners. He drove us to the hotel and pointed out different things to so along the way. When we arrived, we were not disappointed in the room, check in, hotel accommodations or the staff, which included 2 extremely friendly dogs. The hotel was easy to find once after the first day. It is secluded, so no worries about random people wandering up to the room. There were mask, snorkels, coolers, fins, sunblock, towels, and chairs to use while we were staying. So, everything you need to go to the beach. There is also an honor fridge for drinks. Definitely will stay again.

Comfortable suite with a great view.Posted May 3, 2017
Pros: The view, location and cleanliness of the suite.
Location: The location was quiet with a great view of Frenchman's Bay and the sea. Restaurants and beautiful beaches were a short drive from the Villa Marbella.
Villa Marbella is located at the end of a quiet street. The view was spectacular. The suite was clean and comfortable. The hosts were friendly and helpful. My wife and I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Great ExperiencePosted Apr 10, 2017
Pros: Quality, private stay with a personal touch.
Cons: The island could change to right hand driving and do a spot of paving repair.
Location: 15 minutes from town and 30 minutes to the St John's ferries. 5 minute walk down a very nice trail to a local beach that has a grill, bar, etc.
Owners were pleasant to chat with and helpful with our stay. Great on-property pool, and Jack (one of the owner's dogs) was fun to play with. Quiet setting and private with a wonderful view facing south. Short trail down to a local beach. Close enough to town, but far enough to avoid the cruise ship throngs. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Watch out for that view!!!Posted Apr 8, 2017
Pros: Great room with easy access to pool and short hike to the secluded beach.
Location: Very good (on the beach) bars nearby. Food and drinks.
Great time in a private setting on a hillside looking out over the ocean. Pool deck was perfect.

Amazingly wonderful experiencePosted Mar 19, 2017
Pros: Everything. Even the two dogs they have were magical. Our room was the most fantastic!
Cons: No complaints.
Location: It was about a 10 min drive from the more happening parts of town. It's way up in the hills and there isn't much in walking distance, except a beach.
OMG, we loved it here! We had some flight issues, and had to delay and extend our trip and they were so gracious to accommodate us. They even gave us a bottle of rum! We stayed in the duplex room, which was beyond cozy. The view was spectacular. We also loved the privacy the villa provided. And it was a 10 minute drive to the happening parts of town. I highly recommend this place for couples looking for some quiet time together and for the creatives who are looking for some peace. LOVEEEEE!

Set us up to have a wonderful weekPosted Mar 1, 2017
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful week at Villa Marbella. Leah and Gunnar are the nicest people and are very accommodating! The Mango Room was perfect for us. We explored the islands every day, and loved coming home to Villa Marbella! The view is breathtaking. Leah and Gunnar's dogs are the sweetest dogs! They love to hang out with people, but only if you want them to! :)
