My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at Sweet Cottage. It was the perfect first stop on our trip to the USVI. The view of Megan's Bay was breathtaking. The decks were a great place to watch the sunset and relax after a day at the beach. Even though we were not able to meet Selwyn, she was incredibly communicative and very helpful throughout our stay. Enjoy the outdoor shower and make sure to visit Brook's Bar!
We stayed at the Dovelet and I cannot explain how amazing it is. The view is breathtaking. It's so nice to sleep with the natural breeze and have a view of the sky. Even the bathroom and outdoor shower is super cool.
Selwyn is pretty prompt with responding. She also left us bottles of water and eggs in the fridge, which was very kind of her.
Would definitely stay at Dovelet again and highly recommend it!!
We had an absolutely lovely time at ladydove. Words cannot describe the view the expensive porch. And honestly the pictures do not do it justice, the apartment is HUGE as is the deck. Not only is the view of magens bay incredible, it's 5 minute drive to the amazing beach.
selwyn is truly a joy. She happily provides tips and secrets to the island. She returned all emails very promptly.
The only downside was the Mosquitos but she provided us with all the right sprays and nets. And it's hard to be bothered by anything when you are sitting on that deck looking out at magens bay
We would love to stay at ladydove on our next trip or maybe take a charter around the islands offered by Selwyns husband
The view from the room was amazing! Gentle breeze and fan kept us nice and cool. Selwyn was extremely helpful and gave the best recommendations! The best area in St Thomas for sure!
We stayed in Sweet Cottage for 7 days while on our honeymoon. We arrived at airport and rented a car. Driving is totally a different experience in USVI, a lot like a Formula One race..., her directions were accurate, but lack of road signage plagued us the entire trip. Be prepared to get lost many times. The cottage looked like the pictures, the view is FANTASTIC. It was clean and comfortable. The AC was a big plus! Bed sheets were white and clean. We slept fine on her Med. firmness mattress. The outdoor shower was a nice touch. We typically got up around 7, fixed a light breakfast and then headed out exploring, returning to the cottage around 6-7. The cottage had a small tv, apt style fridge, toaster oven, coffee maker, dresser and ceiling fan. We packed WAY too many changes of cloths, should have packed less and instead packed food stocks and sun screen. The food on the islands is 3-4x the cost in USA. Selwyn's cottage really made our trip soo much nicer than staying at some overpriced resort. She is an excellent communicator, we asked her countless questions prior to arrival and she never seemed to tire of them! She is calm, patient and friendly. She sensed when we wanted to be alone and when we wanted to talk. We will stay at her BnB next time when we bring our family.
We had an awesome vacation staying at LadyDove. Selwyn made us feel comfortable and was very welcoming. The view was even better than the pictures could show. The descriptions were accurate and the house was very comfortable. We would highly recommend LadyDove for your next vacation.
My phone did not have service while i was in the islands, so i had to wait until i found wifi to be able to connect, so that was a little inconvenient. Selwyn was prompt on her responses so that helped a lot, i did not receive some of her last messages because of my service so at the end it was a little tricky to find the place and to keep in touch with her. Make sure you get all info needed before getting there.
The place was beautiful all around, the views amazing, the tranquility was wonderful, the neighborhood was quite and safe.
Charming, tropical, eclectic...These words describe Ladydove and we haven't even mentioned the VIEW. The photos are accurate, but they hardly convey the tranquil beauty that surrounds the cottage. The panoramic view of Magen's Bay combined with the abundance of tropical trees, flowers, and birds is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway or a peaceful break from real-world stresses. Ladydove has all the comforts of home along with an artistic, whimsical atmosphere. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor shower with spectacular views of the Bay.
Selwyn is a gracious, helpful host who seeks to provide her guests with a memorable stay. We would recommend Ladydove to anyone who enjoys tropical privacy that's not too far from island activities.

Picturesque accommodations with amazing views and excellent proximity to the major attractions.
We had an amazing experience at Selwyn's. From the moment we booked Selwyn was so open and accessible for any questions. I loved the porches, outdoor shower, and we slept comfortably at night with the air conditioner on. There are great restaurants within a mile of the cottage and I felt very safe the entire time. I would definitely recommend this cottage if you're looking for an amazing getaway. Thanks again, Selwyn!
Selwyn and friend were great guests. They were fun to be around and despite not being able to get a rental car, they got to the ag fair and horse races over the weekend and I thought everything worked out well. As an Airbnb owner with more experience, she offered many helpful suggestions.
