What a great anniversary trip! Thank you for your hospitality! Love this place and looking forward to seeing you next year! Beautiful view, clean room and it just felt like coming home. We got married in St Thomas 4 years ago and came back for our anniversary. Wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Love John and Gwen to pieces. Best resident...

I think we fell in love with the two of you when you were here on your wedding-moon in 2012! It was good to see you again for sure! Many of our Guests say staying at The Green Iguana Hotel is not like staying at a hotel at all. It's more like staying in a larger villa with your own...

We stayed here 6 nights. The managers are very personable and helpful. They are happy to help you with any questions. The room w had included a kitchen and a view of the city. You may use the washer and dryer for a small fee.

A six night stay is perfect for your first visit, enough time to get to know the Town and the Island! There is so much to see and do! We are happy you enjoyed your room and balcony. Our laundry facilities are available to our Guests outside of housekeeping hours. It beats going to a laundry center! Thank you for...

Stayed here for 2 nights before our timeshare villa was ready. It was a great experience. Innkeepers were so helpful. Views from our small balcony were fantastic esp. at night. Only thing that would gave made it better would have been a pool.

Many of our Guests use The Green Iguana Hotel to extend their vacations at their villa or timeshare. One or two days before and after your vacation gives you time to relax and get ready for what's next! Ahhh, the pool issue, we just don't have the space for a pool.

This is a charming place to relax and enjoy St. Thomas. We booked going to, and on return from the BVI. Gwen and John are wonderful hosts. This time we had three other couples join us. Each were thrilled with their accommodations and the unique atmosphere the hotel provides.

Just 3.5 miles from St Thomas airport (STT), we are convenient for overnight stays coming into and leaving the Virgin Islands.

We stayed at the Green Iguana for 1 night before beginning a cruise. I had read reviews online and I thought it might work for 1 night.

What a fun, funky little hotel in a terrific location for walking downtown. We stayed here one night on our return trip from BVI because we didn't want to risk missing our flight the next morning.

I think you are the only one to refer to us as "funky" but I like it! When you are on the first morning flight out, you have to be on St. Thomas to make it through the airport in time. We understand this and do offer single night stays, although we hope on your next visit you will add...

Gwen and John manage and maintain this property and are the best folks you'll ever meet. The location provides a beautiful view of the Bay, Frenchtown and Hassel Island.

The Green HOUSE in Charlotte Amalie is actually only 7 minutes to walk for those who are not renting a vehicle.
