I found this online while searching for a quick place to stop after flying into Charlotte Amelie before taking the ferry to St. John. It was a comforting, tranquil oasis in the midst of the hubbub that is Charlotte Amelie. My husband and I swam, sat on the verdanda and watched the ships in the harbor for hours one night...

This place stole my heart. The view is spectacular of the harbor and cruise ship area. The place is beautifully appointed and very well kept. The beds are super comfortable and the rooms and grounds are very clean and neat. The innkeeper Jessica is very amiable and helpful. Love the location. Just steps from the bustling shopping area and ferry...

On our first walk in St. Thomas, we met the owner Jessica, never realizing that we would end up in this amazing place. The place we initially booked was awful and after one night and a room change, we left. Called Jessica and ended up at this incredible and historic B/B for three nights. The room was perfect. It was...

Our 5-day stay here was the highlight of the trip. Beautiful setting, welcoming hosts and convenient safe location made it ideal for traveling with another couple. Night life is very limited in Charlotte Amalie, so we could stock our own fridge and relax by the pool. Jessica's delicious breakfasts were a great start to a long day exploring and shopping....

Hats off to our hosts Jessica and Mark! Our boutique cruise line embarked directly from St. Thomas. We wanted to get there a couple days early to be sure all our luggage arrived and to explore the island. At Home In The Tropics (AHITT) was PERFECT for us.
