About Tiffany Thomas
We are Scot & Tiffany - we live just outside of Chicago. Scot has been an avid sailor for years and has spent time in the Virgin Islands for the past 20 years sailing through the islands and has always appreciated the beauty of St. John. Seeing the unspoiled beauty of the entire island during a taxi tour in 2000, we fell in love with St. John. We came back many times, renting a different villa in a different area of the island each time. Every time we came down, it got harder and harder to go back. Finally, in 2002, we stayed at Vida de Mar, which also happened to be for sale at the time. We knew right away that Vida de Mar was the perfect location - not too far, not too close, beautiful views and right on the water. Well, long story short - we bought Vida de Mar and hope to make it our full-time home someday. Although this isn't possible now due to jobs, pets, etc - we have taken that first step and are committed to helping others share the experience of St. John and hopefully enjoy it as much as we do.

Spectacular stay in ST John USVi
Thank you for letting our family of 9 stay at your beautiful home. The property was spectacular. I really appreciated that each unit had its own bathroom even though we did have to share ours occasionally with our teenage daughters :) The girls all loved the outdoor tropical garden showers that were available in three of the rooms. The kitchen and living room area had everything we needed to cook and relax together. The couch was especially comfy. The pool was a wonderful temperature and had plenty of toys and noodles, especially the volleyball net setup.
Everything worked perfectly at the home. Since power is at a premium on the island we turned everything off before leaving for the day. However, the mini-split AC units that each room had really cooled things off quickly on our return. We also enjoyed cooking on the outdoor gas grill.
The home was in a great location. We felt very safe and it was a very easy drive to Cruz bay. The landscape and the view were incredible. Will definitely comeback. Thank you again!
Thank you so very much for your 5-star review, we are so pleased that your group had a wonderful time at Vida! We hope you come back and visit us again soon!
We had a wonderful family vacation in St John. Loved the house, plenty of room which provided some privacy and quiet time (if you wanted it). The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The outside showers were fantastic. The kitchen was well equipped with dishes, silverware & pots & pans. The pool area was exceptional--large patio with 10 chaise loungers & multiple umbrellas. It was nice having the beach right there with the soothing sounds of the waves outside each room. Abbey met us at the car barge, led us to the house and was very gracious showing us around. Fortunately, we had no issues while we were there...everything made for a great vacation and plenty of memories to cherish for the rest of our lives. We would definitely book this property again :) Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us. This is our 4th trip to St. John and our favorite house so far!!
We are so pleased that you had a great time at Vida de Mar! We hope you will come back soon and stay with us again!
Loved every second of our stay in the lovely home... great kitchen, and love the fact that all the bedrooms were separate buildings! The beach cottage is so cool - never have I seen a place that you can sleep so close to the waves! Can't wait to come back!
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay! Please come back soon and visit us again!
Fabulous Views and Great Stay on St John
Stayed at this incredible property first of Sept 2018. We were greeted at the dock by Theresa who did a great job to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay. She welcomed us with drinks and escorted us down to the villa. The Villa is a short 10 minutes from Cruz Bay and is located on an incredible point facing the ocean with beach access below. The Villa is well equipped with indoor/outdoor Sonos system and a great pool with separate hot tub for amazing sunset views. Villa has beach chairs and coolers for the daily outings to the beach. All the bedrooms were nicely furnished with A/C and outdoor showers. We will definitely stay here again in the future and thank you Theresa for making our trip seamless. Don't hesitate to stay at this incredible place you will not be disappointed.
Thank you so much for your review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Vida de Mar! Yes, Theresa does a great job for us - -we are so lucky to have her working with us to make your stay as wonderful as possible. Please come visit us again soon!
I had the pleasure of spending two nights in the Hybiscus suite of this villa while my niece and her husband were here. I live on St. Thomas and have stayed at a few Villas but Vida de Mar was my ultimate favorite!! It is HUGE! This villa is so well organized, thoughtfully layed out, beautiful, well kept, and very well stocked for a family or friends night of cooking or grilling! Why would you go out to dinner with a GREAT room like this villa has! Making potatoe salad looking out across the ocean WOW! Sitting down to a family made meal over looking the ocean and hearing the waves slap the shore! Oh yeah and then watching a spectacular sunset from one of the many plush lounge chairs on the balcony🌞. Impeccable nice furniture... Great king size comfortable beds with crisp clean bedding... The cleaning woman Teresa does an excellent job! Attention to detail in all categories ... Air conditioned in all units and an easy walk to the beach. Life can't get much better than Vida de Mar ....live the Caribbean Dream book it today ...you will not be disappointed!
Wow! Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Vida and had such a great time! I hope you will come back again and stay with us again soon!
