Fall asleep to the sound of the waves at our charming, waterfront studio - perched above the Caribbean Sea! Every window has a different view of the ocean!

Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood on the west end of St Thomas, Bella Fortuna is the perfect escape! Enjoy the ocean view and sounds of the sea from your private patio - perfect for cups of coffee or glasses of wine!

Spend an afternoon snorkeling at Fortuna Beach where you can spot turtles, rays and a glistening world of small fish!

The space
Your private downstairs apartment is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for peace and privacy at the end of a day in the sun! The deck wraps around two sides and has a table for eating and extra seating to enjoy the view! When you get back from the beach take advantage of the outdoor shower to rinse off the sand and salt!

The apartment has a queen size bed and air conditioning - or turn the air conditioning off and open the windows to take full advantage of the sounds of the surf (there's a standing fan to keep the air moving)! Every window gives you a different view of the ocean. Take a few minutes and see how many iguanas you can spot in the trees below the house!

We've added a television with a Roku! Access Netflix through the Bella Fortuna account or bring your own account and enjoy all the major streaming services that Roku offers. We still invite you to unplug and enjoy the peace of the ocean but it's there for rainy mornings or unwinding at the end of a long day in the sun!

The living area has a chair, love seat and hammock - all great spots to catch up with each other or a good book! The hammock is a particularly nice spot to lay back and enjoy the view - or a nap! Painting supplies are provided if you feel like capturing a reminder of your day! We also have a small selection of games, books and puzzles.

The kitchen is perfect for cooking meals or making sandwiches to take with you to the beach! There is a drip coffee maker as well as a french press with coffee, creamer and sugar to get you started. If coffee isn't your choice there's also an electric kettle and a selection of teas! Maybe you prefer to start your day with a rum drink whipped up in the blender? As they say - if you want to drink all day you have to start in the morning!

Beach towels, folding beach chairs, a variety of floats, as well as a selection of snorkel gear means you have everything you need for the perfect beach day (if you plan on doing serious snorkeling please bring your own gear or rent a set from a local company for the best fit)! We have a soft sided cooler and freezer packs to keep your drinks and snacks cold. Pack up the handmade beach bag and head out for a day on the sand.

There is a propane grill on the deck and a table for two with an amazing view of the bay. String lights make it the perfect cozy spot to enjoy a meal. Or turn off the lights and wait for the stars come out as your eyes adjust to the darkness. Watch the moon shine on the water, look for shooting stars near the horizon, or see if you can catch the International Space Station zooming by and give them a wave.

All of this while the waves crashing on the shore below provide the background soundtrack! We think it's the perfect spot to recharge and get ready for the next exciting day exploring St Thomas and hope you will too!

Born and raised on St Thomas - it is my absolute favorite place to be! Whether I’m hosting you here or visiting you in your favorite place I’m going to do my best to make sure you love the VI as much as I do!

During your stay

My partner, Tony, and I live upstairs in the main house with our dog, Mayzie (she's a 10 year old lab via the local shelter and will be happy to see you!), and three cats. You may see one or all of us at various times as you come to and from the house - but you have a private entrance to the downstairs. We are always happy to answer questions or make recommendations but also respect and value your privacy while staying with us!
