"Our family had taken a trip to St. John 15 years ago when our children were teens and stayed at Maho Bay, an eco camping experience and it was wonderful. This time we returned with adult children and decided a house would be more appropriate, given the differences in personalities and expectations. Alan and Sarah's home was perfect for a quieter stay on the east end. We rented two cars to allow flexibility in sightseeing and meeting up later. The double porches were great at allowing a constant breeze throughout the house, the DIVI resort was a quick walk down the hill for those who wanted to just spend time on the beach and the kitchen allowed us to have half our meals at "home", thus saving us money for some meals at the great restaurants scattered throughout the island. The rental process was smooth, any small concerns we had while we were there were quickly handled via email and the caretaker. The rental cost was worth every penny and we would return to this house just for the sunrises and gentle, warm breezes. Thanks for sharing your home with strangers."

"Smuggler's Retreat was beyond our expectations! My family loved the house, the pool and especially the view. We explored the island and went snorkeling at Buck Island but our favorite was to return to Smugglers and spend time at the house. We ate most meals at the outside table on the front porch. You couldn't get a better view at any restaurant. We can't wait to go back again!"

"This is a wonderful place for a family or 4-6 people
Very private spacious home on the beach with a great pool. Not too far a drive from Christiansted and several good restaurants within a short drive. Stayed 8 days with our teenage son and his friend. They had their privacy and we had ours. You can swim and snorkel within 150 feet of the rear of the home, sit on the veranda overlooking the ocean with you morning coffee or take a late night dip in the pool. House and grounds are well maintained. This was perfect for us and we will most probably return. It was also a very good value compared to other places - not more expensive than a 2 bedroom condo on the north shore but you have the privacy and your own private pool and more or less your own private beach"

"Bob and Sue are amazing and the cottage was perfect. Great view of the water, Buck Island and the Sunset! Our room was clean and had a large comfy bed. The kitchenette was great too! (we didn't cook much, but we could've made a feast with all the pots, pans and cooking utensils).
The resort was great! the pool is brand new and beautiful, Hammocks and beach chairs on the beach, full bar with funny barmen, and a beautiful restaurant that looks over it all!
Highly recommend and 10/10 would go again!"
