At Home in the Tropics is nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood overlooking the Charlotte Amalie Harbor in St. Thomas. Based in the US Virgin Islands, we have been a top rated historic hotel and local inn 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. In addition to our rooms and amenities, each of our rooms are designed to provide access to the pool and outdoor spaces. 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. Perfect for anniversary getaways and honeymoons, our hotel is ready to help you plan the tropical vacation of a lifetime. Give us a call today to learn more about our boutique hotel or to book your stay!



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. Once At Home in the Tropics purchased the property, the historic hotel was restored to include modern amenities to make your stay more comfortable while retaining its charm.

When you choose to stay at our historic hotel, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy your tropical vacation exploring Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas and the surrounding areas of the Virgin Islands. Retiring to your room at the end of a long day will perfect your experience.
