Refurnishing Salty Sway!

Salty Sway is our newest villa in and we are currently working on refurnishing the entire villa. We are giving it a real do over with all new furniture and decor. For the outside we have brand new dining tables coming. We also have new grills and sun lounges. The dining area is also getting a make over with light and bright new dining furniture and a new rug. As well as new flat screen TVs, sofa tables and lamps the most important new piece in the living room will be the new sofa. It is a convertible sofa that turns into a full bed. All the bedrooms are also undergoing a real makeover. With new tufted and upholstered headboards, desks and accent chairs they will look very nice. We recently just had some new aerials taken of the villa as well! You can’t really get much closer to the Caribbean sea than this! You can also see how close Salty Sway and The Blue Sandcastle are to each other. Check out our latest aerial …

Dining in St. Thomas

Don’t wanna cook while on vacation?  Well, The Blue Sandcastle and our other villas offer an extensive catering option. Our chefs can do anything from a casual Caribbean night to a gourmet dinner. Ask us about menus! We can even put together a full board package for you. However, if you are going out to dine, we do have some spot we really like! In the area of Havensight and Yacht Haven Grande we definitely like Fresh Bistro and Tap & Still. Fresh always has an intriguing menu with new flavors and great cocktails. While Tap & Still has the best burgers on the island! Both are only about 5 minutes from the villas. Another place we really like is Bella Blu. Bella Blu has a European inspired menu and can be found in Frenchtown. We love their pasta dishes. Bella Blu is also a great place for Sunday brunch. And if you are in town Pita Express (Palm Passage) and Gladys (Royal Dane Mall) are always good choices for lunch! The Mafolie Hotel and Restaurant …

New Blue Sandcastle Upgrades

You might have noticed the upgrades we did to the pool deck before the start of high season. We added more shade and also added dining tables for up to 20 guests. Along with that we also got new sun lounges for you to enjoy the ever shining Caribbean sun while you have the cool breeze blowing over you. Let me tell you a secret: The new lounges are also perfect for star gazing! You might even see a meteor! With the new lights around the cabanas the pool deck also makes the perfect spot for a late night pool party. However, our main new item this high season is the enormous dining table we got! Look at that table! And we can even expand it more! The dining table comfortably seats 20 guests. It really makes it easy for a huge group to enjoy a social time together. It is also perfect for when we cater and make dinner or breakfast to our guests. For weddings and celebrations we can also rearrange the table …
