It’s Not Just A Vacation. It’s A Lifestyle.

Long story short

The Best Way to Get to Us From The Airport :

Once you arrive on St. Thomas, the easiest way to reach us is to use a regular van taxi. They will be lined up at the airport or the ferry dock. Just tell them you are going to “Tillett Gardens” in Tutu across from the fire station. We’re about a 45 min ride from the airport, and it’s about $15 per person to get here.

Safari taxis don’t go into the airport, and operate like a public bus system, so you’re supposed to know where you’re going. It’s easiest to have a van taxi get you to us, and once you’re here we explain how to use the safaris.

Your Friendly Staff :

We are your “Mom and Pop” couple running this whole joint. We don’t have a reception desk, or sit in an office by a phone all day.

We do our best to be available, but it can be hard to answer the phone when you’re cleaning, painting, planting, feeding a parrot (or twelve) or inside a cistern, or most importantly, at the beach! We appreciate your understanding in how we do this thing, which is:

-send us an email at tilletthostel@gmail.com for general questions/inquiries on availability.

-if you need to know if we have space immediately or in the next couple days, call or text us at 340-998-5993. If we miss your call, Don’t Panic! Just leave a voicemail or you can also send us a text. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can!

-Most Importantly, whichever way you book, we need to know your estimated time of arrival, since we don’t have a reception desk, we have to plan to be ready to meet you!
