At Home in the Tropics is nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood overlooking the Charlotte Amalie Harbor. We have been a top rated hotel for over a decade and have won Trip Advisor's Circle of Excellence for ten consecutive years. Guests can expect a relaxing and tranquil escape, coupled with an authentic and unique Caribbean experience. One of the many benefits of staying here is that the Innkeepers delight in helping guests enjoy their visit to the US Virgin Islands and can help to plan a trip that suits your personal vacation style. 


The property has a total four guest rooms, so you'll never feel crowded or overwhelmed. Our location allows for a short walk to many shopping and restaurant options, but we are also far enough away from the city noise and traffic. Each guest room has its own private entry from the courtyard as well as private bath and shower. We also endeavor to keep the Caribbean beautiful for all to enjoy. Therefore, solar is our primary power source, and filtered rain water is used throughout the property.


At Home in the Tropics is open year round for guest reservations.  


The Inn was constructed by the Danish in 1803, and originally used as a barracks for the private guard of the Danish Governor.  Over the last two centuries, the property has also been utilized as government offices, and at one time was a private residence. It has been restored to include modern amenities to make your stay more comfortable, while retaining its historic island charm.


Located in an historic, residential neighborhood in downtown Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, we offer a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle of town. We are within walking distance to many restaurants, activities, museums and historic sites.  

Situated on one of many step-streets in St. Thomas, we share Government Hill with Blackbeards Castle, the historic 99 Steps and the Three Queens Memorial (right). 

We are a short drive to the airport, ferry dock, Schneider Regional Medical Center, and Magens Bay. Many Government offices including the Superior Court, Federal Courthouse and the Coast Guard are within walking distance.
