Colibri: Amazing view!

Rating: (Excellent)

We rented Colibri in February of 2012 and used Villa Fish as our booking agent.

Colibri is an AWESOME house. The location cannot be beat- right on a cliff above the water at the edge of Maria Bluff at the entrance to Great Cruz Bay. Very easy to get to on Great Cruz Bay Road just past the Westin. The expansive, more than 180 degree view overlooking Great Cruz Bay, St. Thomas, and south towards St. Croix is spectacular, and there is a ton of patio space to enjoy it. There is a large pool that was warmer than most we have tried in February- very comfortable. There is also a great deck around the pool for lounging as well as a fantastic outdoor dining room that overlooks the amazing sunsets. You get sun most of the day but there are shady spots under ceilings on the deck.

The kitchen is gorgeous- all top notch appliances and very updated. It has all the supplies you will ever need. All of the bedrooms are fantastic- the master is up and just off the great room (interior access); the other two are down the outside stairs at the pool deck level (exterior access). There is a washer/dryer in the master bathroom, and that bathroom is much bigger than the others (so not "equal" bedrooms). All bedrooms have AC and it works REALLY well- we barely had to turn it on and the bedroom was frosty. The great room and kitchen sliders all open up to the breezes and view and, although the setting sun is right in front of you, the great breezes keep it from getting too warm. The sliders have screens to keep the bugs out, but we barely noticed any bugs thanks to the constant breezes.

Note that parking is street level, and there is a set of outside steps to go down to get to the house. Not a problem for us (except the day after running 8 Tuff Miles- ouch)- but something to be noted if you are concerned with stairs. You also have to go down outside stairs to get to the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms and the pool. We don't mind the steps at all, and this house was perfect for three couples. We usually like to rent a different house every trip, but this house has really tempted us to come back- and I am sure we will rent it again.

Villa Fish was fantastic to work with- we have rented from them a few times. They are really nice, live on island, know everything about the houses, and are really fast in communicating. Their website is a huge plus- great information, east to navigate, and has a ton of properties. Simply a great way to rent your vacation house on STJ. Will be renting from them again too. You can't go wrong with Colibri or Villa Fish.
