Guest Reviews

Amie and Steve are AH-MAZING hosts! They are truly a blessing. They went above and beyond for us AGAIN. The cottage is cozy and has everything you need to be comfortable. There is no doubt there is a lot of thought that goes into their efforts to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable. The bar and the pool are our favorite hang-out spots. We could never leave and still be just as happy and content. That said, we do appreciate them encouraging us to get out there to see more of the island and also St John. Anything you want/need to know, they have the answers – where to eat, where to swim, where to get a tasty drink…anything you could want. Thank you, Amie and Steve, for making our vacation even more memorable than the last time! Blessings to you!

WOW! What a blessing it has been to stay here. This place is amazing and I love all the little extra touches you have added. The view is breathtaking and beyond words. Steve (and Amie) were fabulous hosts. They really went above and beyond for us. We could have not asked for a better experience. God has really blessed you both and it shows. Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise with us. We can’t wait to come back.

WOW! Two Tickets To Paradise Cottage exceeded all our expectations. It truly is a slice of paradise and I have nothing but incredible things to say. For starters Amie and Steve were the best hosts you could ask for. They were beyond friendly and happy to help in any way they could. They made our stay worry free and the cottage included many useful amenities. As for the pictures included, they really do give an accurate representation of this property, they are spot on. This was such a unique place and by far the coolest most fun rental property I have ever stayed at. The views were out of this world. Waking up each morning and sipping our coffee overlooking the bay is something I will never forget. In addition, the cottage was very conveniently located. We rented a car and were able to see most of the island easily. We went on two different excursions both of which were easy to get to from the cottage. There were also multiple restaurants close by to eat at, all of which had delicious food. Overall this was an unforgettable vacation and the memories made here will last forever. We would highly recommend staying here to anyone and everyone as it truly is a once in a lifetime experience!!!


One word….AMAZING!  The view is everything you would want, and the cottage is like home away from home. So comfortable and all you could want on vacation. Bar, pool, views……without the hotel crowd AND walking distance to a beach. We will absolutely be back!

This may be the best villa to rent, for the price point, on St Thomas. The owners are incredible people. The property is gorgeous. There’s a full outdoor bar and heated pool. The views are breathtaking. I highly highly recommend it. So much better in every way than a cookie cutter condo on the east end.
It is a truly special place.
You will need a vehicle but it’s worth it.

Bars & Restaurants

The closest bar/restaurants to our cottage is The Shack at The Hideaway at Hull beach (about 1/4 mi walk or drive) and Fish Bar which is about a 500′ walk from our cottage. The Shack has great food and drinks and a cool atmosphere to hang out.  Play some cornhole at their bar too. The Fish Bar is a great place for fish, seafood and cocktails. There is an abundance of bars and restaurants around St Thomas. While you can find them all over the island the two main areas for restaurants and bars are Charlotte Amalia and Red Hook.  CA is about 12 minutes away (3 miles)  and RH is about 23 minutes. (7 miles).  You can find some of the best seafood restaurants in the Caribbean right here on St Thomas. You can also try the local West Indie cuisine all around the island. Most restaurants are pretty casual as far as dress is concerned.  We do have several very ice upscale restaurants you may want to dress a little nicer for. Either way shorts seems to be the dress code of the day out here anytime.

On The Water

If you love the salt life on the water then St Thomas is the best place to visit.  We have friends that are captains for charter companies so let us know what you would like to do. You can do some offshore or inshore fishing, snorkeling, SCUBA, beach bar hopping, Island hopping, Pizza Pi, Limeout Tacos and so much more. Spend the day on the water in the US Virgin Islands and you will have the time of your life.


Looking for some great deals on jewelry, liquor, souvenirs, etc? We can tell you where to find the best deals. We are located only about 15 minutes from downtown Charlotte Amalia where you will find the best duty free shopping in the Caribbean. We have friends with businesses we can refer you to for the best deals.

Local & HIstoric Sights

Lots of history around St Thomas and St John. You can take guided tours of the islands with our Jeep buddies.  Sunfari Jeep Tours and Everlong Excursions. Both will customize a day for you to visit, all the sights you want on either St Thomas or St John. Be sure to check out Pirate Treasure: A Shipwreck Museum near Havensight. They have a lot of history about the pirates that used to inhabit our islands and the treasures they left behind.

Beaches and Outdoor Adventure

The US Virgin Islands is home to some of the most beautiful pristine beaches in the world. The best beach on St Thomas is arguably Magen’s, only a 12 minute drive from your cottage (4 miles).

Looking for fun on land? Try one of our island jeep tours that will take you around to some of the best places to eat, drink, snorkel, hike and beach. You can even take an off road adventure to secluded beaches. Sunfari Jeep Tours and Everlong Excursions are the best!

Steve & Amie Mayes

Recent trip to Jost Van Dyke, BVI on our boat Risky Biskit

Q. How did you come up with the name Two Tickets To Paradise Cottage?
A. Steve would sing the Eddie Money song to Amie every time they heard it as a reminder that one day he would give her the two tickets to paradise she had always dreamed of. It seemed like the natural name for our dream island home.

Q. What are your full time jobs?
A. Steve has several money making websites including Red Head Barrels. RHB was started in 2013 and exploded in less than 6 months with top Google rankings.  Amie worked for several Hilton Hotels for over 25 years as Director of Sales.  In 2017 she started working with Steve at Red Head Barrels. She is responsible for the distillery barrel program, working with the largest whiskey, bourbon, rum and tequila distilleries in the U.S.. Steve and Amie still operate Red Head Barrels from their home in St Thomas, VI.

Q. How many children do you have?
A. Amie and Steve have a combined 6 adult children with 5 daughters and 1 son that live in Texas, Kansas and Pennsylvania. They also have 6 grandchildren.

Q. What is your favorite thing to do on the island?
A. If they are not at their beautiful paradise home then their favorite thing to do is hang out at one of the many beautiful beaches. Steve and Amie love to entertain at their pool & tiki bar or out on their boat Risky Biskit, with their many great friends they have met since moving to St Thomas also.

Amie is also an extremely active volunteer with the Humane Society of St Thomas. Both Steve and Amie work to raise funds and awareness to help the homeless dog and cat population on the Island. Amie can be found at the shelter just about every morning walking dogs. If you would like to help us by transporting a small dog or cat to the states (subject to qualifications) no cost to transport the animal AND we will refund you $100 after checkout. You would just deliver dog or cat in carrier to your destination airport and someone will meet you there to pick it up.
