10/10 Exceptional

Excellent location up the fill from the waterfront. Private and quiet with easy access to exploring the island.

10/10 Exceptional

We didn't expect for our B&B stay to be the defining aspect of our St. Thomas vacation, but At Home in the Tropics proved to be that, and then some. We could tell from the moment we arrived that our warm hosts and property owners, Jess and Mark, were all-in on making our stay memorable. The views of the bay from our room and outdoor dining area were phenomenal. Because the property features only four rooms, we enjoyed a very quiet, comfortable, and private stay. We were especially impressed with the room's boutique and historical charm, from the French shutters to the reimagined barracks-style architecture. But the real pièce de résistance of a stay here was, without question, the eating experience. If you plan to have breakfast on this island, you cannot do better than At Home in the Tropics. Jess' locally sourced and thoughtfully crafted dishes were sensational. While serving up delicious fruit and rounds of coffee each morning, Mark (a seas-oned expert on all things local) offered recommendations that helped maximize our experience on the island. We would have stayed another five days here if we could've, if for no other reason than to enjoy the hospitality. Jess and Mark's At Home in the Tropics B&B has earned our highest recommendation, and we can't wait to go back. -James & Brittany

I can’t say enough positive things about this place! My boyfriend and I booked a 5 night stay and ended up extending for 7 nights because it was so incredible and we didn’t want to leave. Mark and Jen are the nicest hosts and so accommodating. We looked forward to coffee and homemade breakfast every morning, which was absolutely delicious. The pictures are exactly what the hotel looks like, cute and quaint, so clean with beautiful views. The area is walkable and the taxi service is very efficient. I highly recommend staying here if you have no kids and want a quiet, romantic vacation. We will definitely be coming back in the future!

At Home in the Tropics is one of the loveliest places we have ever stayed. Mark and Jess provide wonderful service. Their willingness to go above and beyond for their guests is truly amazing! A beautiful location to explore the city with picturesque views and a breakfast that rivals any five star dining! We will be back to visit the USVI’s again and we will definitely stay here again!

Excellent boutique b&b conveniently local above town. Easy to park and rent car to get around the island. Delicious homemade breakfasts in the morning. Gracious host with all amenities needed.
