The SpaceThis private retreat is perfect for anyone looking to experience the local side of St Thomas on a budget. Open only to singles or couples, I offer not only lodging but healthy breakfast made to order and car services in this package.
Each day begins with a vegetarian breakfast, fresh juices, hot and iced tea and fresh coffee from the Caribbean. All ingredients are organic and I support the local economy by purchasing as many fresh goods from local farmers as possible. Transportation is difficult on island so in addition to an island tour I provide a car service that includes airport pickup and drop off, a daily pickup and drop off to any beach you’d like for an additional $10-$15 depending on location. Also included in your package is an optional guided morning hike and swim, beachside oil massage (30 mins) and private meditation session (30 mins) and reiki session (45 mins) beach towels and bags. This trip is perfect for someone willing to sacrifice a 5 star hotel for a 5 star experience.

I am happy to be your tour guide and host on island and I love sharing this beautiful place with people from around the world. Getting AroundThere is not a direct safari connection but travel is very easy via hitching. I provide taxi services of $10-$20 depending on the distance Other Things to NoteSt Thomas is a very small and expensive island. Nothing works 100% of the time. Power outages sometimes occur. Wifi signals go out. Water runs out. Although it's not often things do happen and can not be avoided. Please remember that you are visiting the second world and keep a lighthearted attitude.
