The property was beautiful and pleasantly much better than the the pictures shown on the web. The location was perfect and the views beyond words. The owner's and the manager were so helpful and accomodating. We felt very much at home and we had everything we needed. We enjoyed reading the journal stories of past renters where we found some of the best recommendations for restaurants and fun. We look forward to staying at Jolly Diversion again. It truly is a Home Away in paradise!

Thoroughly enjoyable stay. Vista views as marvelous as advertised in photos. Very open comfortable living room with an entire wall of sliding glass doors to take in the views. Loved the upstairs outdoor shower attached to the bathroom with complete privacy for showering under the blue sky (or stars). Nancy was a most helpful and available caretaker.

Jolly was a great stay for me and my husband. This was our 2nd trip to St.John. Our 1st time we stayed in Coral Bay. We wanted to try something closer to Cruz Bay but not within the town. This location was perfect! The rental was beautful! MUCH better than the photos even. We loved the spaciousness and the decks were really great. We spent time each nite on the deck enjoying the stars It was also wonderful to have a washer and dryer. The outdoor shower was fun but it was good to have a choice with an indoor shower as well. We would definately return to Jolly and next time even bring friends

My wife and I stayed at Jolly Diversion the first week of May. Everything was as described. Very nice house with a beautiful view. Did a lot of swimming and snorkeling with great underwater scenery. Renewed our wedding vows on Hawksnest beach where we were married. Ate at Miss Lucies which we had done back in 2001 and food was very good. As a whole, food was very expensive as it is all brought in. We shopped at the local market, I believe it was Starfish Market, and prepared a lot of meals at the house. The supermarket had a nice deli with a lot of prepared food at very reasonable prices. Would recommend a 4-wheel drive or all wheel drive for the steep island roads and Jolly Diversions driveway which is quite steep. Would also have liked an air conditioner in the master bedroom as it was almost too warm to sleep. We slept in the downstairs bedroom with AC, pushing the two mattresses together down there. Its not that we don't understand heat-we live in Florida. Sometimes a comfortable breeze but other times warm and tropical. The sun is hot so be careful. Only negative and a heads up to anyone visiting the island or any of the islands was that we had money stolen out of our back pack while snorkeling at Salt Bay. Luckily whoever stole it only wanted cash and left credit cards and camera alone. Lesson learned-only take what you need to the beach. Minimum money, possibly locking valuables in the glove compartment. I dont feel this is a reflection of the people who live there as anyone we told about it expressed outrage and apologies. Also, if you plan to take a day trip to shop on St. Thomas, make sure there are cruise ships there. We took the ferry over -no cruise ships and probably 95% of the stores closed down town. A ghost town. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would stay there again

This private house was very clean, tastefully decorated, and well equipped with much more than I would expect from a rental property. Extras we noticed and enjoyed included: beach towels, coolers, beach chairs, snorkel gear, a full-size gas grill, stocked kitchen with all the appliances, gadgets and cooking utensils we have at home (blender, coffee grinder, many spices and condiments etc), books, puzzles, games, dvd and stereo, wireless internet, full size washer / dryer. The house was also in a very private location with beautiful views from 3 separate deck areas. My wife and I hope to return soon !
