Paradise at ocean kaleidoscope
What a great home base for activities on StThomas,WaterIsland,StJohn and the BVIs. We enjoyed the outdoor living space with panoramic views and hot tub the most.The unit had all we needed and a few things we never expected like folding chairs, towels, snorkel gear.We created lovely memories here and our hosts were great! We would come again and definitely recommend it to others

This place was wonderful, so beautiful and more than we had ever expected.
Gail and Curlson, What a wonderful stay we had in your beautiful condo. The view was spectacular and you both were so warm and friendly, always there to meet our every need. We really did not know what to expect coming to an island, as we had never been before. From the very beginning, when we walked through the door and saw the spectacular view... all our concerns were quickly allayed. Every single thing that we could ever ask for or would ever need was found by staying at your beautiful home. Thank you so much and hope to see you again. Your new friends from Pennsylvania.

Memories of This
Dear Gail & Curlson, It was a pleasure meeting you. And it is certainly a pleasure to say how wonderful our stay was in Ocean Kaleidoscope Villa. It turned out to be exactly as depicted on the website, with wonderful views of the ocean and the other islands. The views were amazing and relaxing. The living room and dining room were large and comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped, the bedrooms luxurious, the building well-maintained and quiet. All was spotlessly clean and the linens and towels generously supplied. The pool and the jacuzzi were great and we made great use of both. The villa could not be better located and your suggestions provided an insider's view of the island. Our hosts were available whenever we needed them and we truly enjoyed the interaction with our hosts. Gail was our personal tour guide and it was absolutely an amazing experience. The experience was first class as were the hosts very hospitable and thoughtful. Our only regret was that our stay was too short! We are definitely looking forward to our return to island and Ocean Kaleidoscope Villa in the next couple of years. Thanks for all you’re assistance during our stay, we have made lifetime memories and friends. Love, Susan, Kathy, Dot, Gloria, and Margaret.

The View!!! OMG....The View
Just finished our 10nt stay at Ocean Kaleidoscope Villa. The hosts live above the rental which is super convenient if you need anything, but they aren't intrusive at all. We met them in Red Hook and followed them up, up, up the hill to the villa (no need for a 4wd vehicle...we had a compact and it managed just fine). When Gail opened up the gate to the deck area, I was literally speachless because of the view! You have Sapphire beach below and views of St John, numerous other little US virgin islands and behind them, and the BVIs. The villa itself was super clean and had lots of little extras, like spices, oils, extra bug spray, first aid items, beach chairs, etc. The king size bed is also super comfortable. We appreciated having fast, reliable wifi for our visit as well. The outdoor space is very private and we ejoyed using plunge pool, outdoor shower and hot tub every day. There are four seperate seating areas outside as well! We ate all of our meals outside on the deck while soaking in the view. When we come back to St Thomas, we won't even look at booking anywhere else but Ocean Kaleidoscope Villa!

Treetop view of paradise!
Ocean Kaleidoscope is so private and peaceful. The owners Gail and Curlson are fantastic. We arrived at night so they met us at the airport and escorted us to the home. They will provide anything you need or like with us gave complete privacy. There is a separate efficiency down below. This provided the perfect place for my son and his family. This is the place to stay if you want to experience St. Thomas from a residential aspect. The drive up is steep but we drove a Dodge Caravan so no 4 wheel drive necessary. The beaches are so close. Beautiful Smith Beach is only ¼ mile away. The other beaches are not far away. his was our first trip to USVI but not our last! Thank you Gail and Curlson we had a wonderful time:)

Getting back into the swing of things after my own vacation... So sorry I wasn't here to see you off on your last day, but I know you were in good hands with Curlson and the furries. THANK YOU for making Villa Ocean Kaleidoscope your Home Away From Home! Come back and see us again sometime... I'd do something about the "steep" roads, but it's an island ya know (Lol). Enjoy the rest of the Summer, the best to ALL, and see you when you return!

Best Hidden Gem in Red Hook area!!!
This vacation rental was the BEST we've ever rented. The hosts, Gail and Curlson, were magnificent. They were available for any question or issue that came up and they were very gracious hosts. The property is AMAZING! The pictures are accurate but really do not do the place justice. We enjoyed having a clean and comfortable home to return to after visiting the beaches and shops on the island of St. Thomas everyday. What is provided: King size bed in master (along with dresser, mirror, nightstands, entertainment armoire, and A/C unit) Full Master Bath Queen size pull out sofa (coffee table, end tables, storage cabinet, TV unit and brand new A/C unit) Rollaway bed in large master closet (that can double as another sleeping area) Pack and Play pen for small babies/toddlers Queen size bed in downstairs cottage (kitchenette, full bath and closet, A/C unit, balcony with eating area, storage baskets/dresser) All the linens you could ever need including huge beach towels Trash bags, paper towel, toilet paper, dish soap, a variety of sunscreens, insect repellant, body wash etc. ALL cookware, eating utensils, barbecue utensils, appliances etc. in kitchen (only thing I found missing was a slow cooker/Crockpot) board games, playing cards, paperback books 3 flat screen tvs Dvd player stereo system in main house and cottage various maps and magazines for information about the area indoor dining table 4 outdoor dining areas (including the cottage balcony downstairs) gas grill pool, hot tub, outdoor shower washer and dryer pool toys 4 beach chairs and we left some sand castle toys and pool noodles HUGE HONOR SYSTEM LIQUOR CABINET (if you drink more than half of any bottle, replace with any kind of liquor you like) we bought 4 more bottles! Complete privacy and EXCELLENT views! I cannot think of anything else that I needed on this vacation. We were a family of 6 (mom, dad, 21 yr. old, 17 yr. old, 10 yr. old daughters, and 18 month old grandson) Everything was perfect. I cannot wait to plan our next trip here. This was the best place to stay on the East End and it was extremely budget friendly! Thank you so much, Curlson and Gail for opening your home to us!

Wow... I am so happy that we were able to provide you with a place that more than exceeded expectations! It was a joy for us to have you as our guests, knowing that you were happy and comfortable. Enjoyed the invite to dinner and the great conversation. PLEASE come back and visit with us again... Ocean Kaleidoscope will keep the door open for you. :-) Best to all!

About the neighbourhood
This corner lot, at 300 feet above sea level, is close enough but not too far from the nearby town of Red Hook. The steady breezes gently carry away the distant sounds of civilization, creating the feeling of seclusion, while only being 5-15 minutes away from pristine beaches (the nearest within 1/4 mile and 3 minutes driving), savory island cuisine, exhilarating marine adventure, shopping bonanzas, water sports, and island hopping.
Getting around
A rental car is strongly recommended. This is the most cost effective and independent method of transportation. Guests provided with recommendations and contact information after booking. Taxi cabs are plentiful. Costs vary and are based on per person government approved tariffs. The USVI does not have any Uber, Lyft or other similar ride sharing service.
