Beautiful home with outstanding view
Beautiful home with outstanding view
Loved my stay at Eminence on High in beautiful St. John. Unfortunately, I was only able to sneak away from work for a few short days, but this home hit the mark perfectly. The photos on the site represented the villa perfectly, the villa was in immaculate condition, and it is exactly what I had in mind. There is plenty of room at this villa for several couples, with enough places to lay around and read a book if you want to get away from things. Even though there is a home behind and in front of this villa, once you are in the house, you have to really work to see any spec of another house, and they certainly can't see you, so if privacy is important, you can certainly check that box here. I cooked every day in the villa. They had absolutely everything I could have wanted. A nice steak on the grill one night. The pool was cold, and I got in once, but the hot tub was perfect. Was great looking up at the stars in the bubbly hot tub with a cold beverage. Leading up to my trip, I asked the owner several questions which were immediately answered; I really appreciated this as I didn't have a lot of time to get ready. The only thing I would add is snorkeling equipment (many villas have a handful of masks and snorkels), and a slightly smaller cooler. For one person, the big cooler was a bit cumbersome (even though it has wheels), especially going to Salt Pond. (Clearly, if I'm mentioning these two little nits, the rest of the trip must have been spectacular, and it was. I have to give them *something* to work on. lol) Also have to give a shout out to the property manager. I contacted him a couple of days beforehand, and since my time was limited, I asked that he just meet me at the Starfish market where I would buy provisions on my way in. He was perfectly flexible - I texted him in the checkout line, he told me that he was in the parking lot, I came out, and he was in the car next to me, and I was on my way. He gave a quick but very thorough run through the house with me, and he was on his way. It could not have been a more efficient check-in. *Exactly* what I wanted. A few lunches at Skinny Legs, Salt Pond, Trunk Bay, Hawksnest and Francis, and it was off to home for me. This time when I went to Trunk Bay, I got there early (like 9 or so), and went to the far right as you face the water. There was a nice nook there that gave some privacy. I'll be back.
