At Home in the Tropics deserves 5-stars on all levels. Jess and Mark are great hosts with incredible attention to detail. The property is beautiful with spectacular views and walking distance to town. Each morning is a different breakfast, all delicious. A great pool and two great dogs (Ocho and Reno) make this property one of the best I've stayed at anywhere in the world!

I have stayed at At Home in the Tropics numerous times now and each stay is somehow better than the last. Mark and Jess have truly created a comfortable vacation spot to relax and recharge. Each room is spacious and comfortable with an amazing view of the harbor. The pool area is large and inviting. Jess is a talented chef with a wide range of breakfast options, each one just as delicious as the last. The bed and breakfast is in a great, walkable location to shops and restaurants. I'm always sad to leave and excited to return. During the Covid 19 lockdown, I had multiple dreams that I was back there and it was the first place I traveled to when I was able. I absolutely recommend staying here.

At Home in the Tropics is my favorite vacation location. It is walking distance to downtown, close Maegan's Bay, and a short drive to Red Hook. Mark and Jess are thoughtful and generous. Jess set up a massage and helped us find a great dinner location for our group. And you must try her banana pancakes and savory waffles! They are delightful. I have stayed in all four rooms and love them all. I recommend staying here whenever you visit St. Thomas.

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending a much needed break with friends at At Home in the Tropics. Our room was breezy and comfortable, and stepping up to the balcony from our room we had a sweeping view of the entire harbor and Hassel Island. Mark and Jess are wonderful hosts - friendly, informative, and helpful. They are truly dedicated to ensuring a relaxing experience, which was very much appreciated! Breakfast was delicious, and along with the gorgeous view, a perfect way to start each day. We even enjoyed spending time with the sweet, well-behaved pups! We look forward to visiting again someday, and would definitely recommend At Home in the Tropics.

I almost don't want to write this review because I don't want anyone to find out about this gem. Mark and Jess left no stone unturned in creating this magical place...simple, tasteful, and welcoming. There was a sense of home (as the name imples) yet a sense of privacy that is challenging to create in an inn with only 4 rooms, but they did it! Forego the big beach resorts and feel like you really are at home in the tropics. You won't be sorry. We're already planning our next trip.
