We stayed in Blue Tang Villa in June of '09. The villa overlooks Great Cruz Bay. If you look to the right you see the Westin and to the left you see St. Thomas. The view is to die for! It has a great covered veranda with comfy furniture to take in the view. The pool is 2 steps down from the veranda and is always in the sun. It's a great pool in which to float the afternoons away.
One entire wall that runs the length of the great room has sliders and screens so the view from inside is almost as spectacular. There are 2 seating areas in the great room for relaxing. One is by the TV and the other is at the other end of the room. We loved this set up because some people could be relaxing and reading while others were watching TV and everyone had a place to sit. The great room isn't air-conditioned but the breezes were very nice. The mornings and evenings were very comfortable. It got a little warm in the afternoons, but not so much that it bothered us. We were always hanging around in our swimming suits enjoying the pool anyway.
There are 2 bedrooms each with an attached bath. The bedrooms are air-conditioned and very nice. The bathrooms are also very nice. I loved that there were little toiletries like you would find in a hotel since our box of shipped supplies hadn't arrived.
The kitchen has granite counters and all the gadgets you could need. There is a dining area in between the 2 seating areas in the great room if you want to eat inside.
The driveway is steep and intimidating at first but aren't almost all the driveways on STJ?
Overall you couldn't ask for a nicer villa for the price. This is our 3rd villa we rented and this is the one we will return to if we are lucky enough to be able to return. The owner was very nice about answering my email questions and Catered To is a great rental company to work with. They helped us track down our missing package and called mid-week to make sure we were enjoying our stay. There was also mid-week maid service which we hadn't anticipated but it was a nice plus. This villa is very clean and, to emphasize it again, THE VIEW IS TERRIFIC! You won't be disappointed!
