Romantic honeymoon getaway in the Virgin Islands?

Jump to last reply

Hi all. My fiancee and I from Missouri, U.S. have not been travelers but are so excited to be getting married and planning a honeymoon! We'd be very grateful for your help in determining where to stay for our special trip. :)

Our top priority is having a romantic and secluded vacation near the ocean. We can only afford $3000 to $4000 for the week, but our travel date of June 2012 should be the off season in the Virgin Islands which should allow for this budget I hope. My question is what do you think is the most private setup we can get and where?

Ideals:
- We are looking to rent a villa/home rather than stay at a resort/condo - we'd like the option to see no one else unless we choose to do so (and are happy to get some groceries, cook a little together and maybe grill out on our patio)
- We'd like great ocean/beach views from our home, and some once-in-a-lifetime luxuries such as our own private pool (and hopefully a jacuzzi, outdoor/garden shower, hammock, etc)
- We'd like to mix in trips to secluded beaches, probably snorkel a little, and try out some local restaurants for breakfast or dinner
- We do not want mosquitoes/bugs to ruin our trip (I've read that open-air homes have ruined many a stay, so alas we may have to go with a resort/hotel instead of a villa/home perhaps) and so we'd need a clean, air conditioned home that we can comfortably retreat into (one that locks would help our peace of mind as well)
- We will mostly be out at the pool, hot tub, or beach, but we'd love to come inside to comfort for watching a movie, or playing some games... and just basically enjoying our time together in "paradise" for a week (nightlife and crowds are completely undesired)

My research finds the Virgin Islands much more desirable than Hawaii for things like hillside villas with ocean views, and specifically it appears the most fitting locations are St. John's, Tortola, and Virgin Gorda. However, I don't know which island has the most private homes (and beaches), nor do I know which specific homes would be the best for us on the particular island.

Any general recommendations on destinations or specific suggestions on homes would be much help and greatly appreciated. :) Thanks!
