"We stayed here for one week in July 2015 and very much enjoyed our visit. The online photos do not do justice to the actual views from the villa, which are quite spectacular.
The property itself was attractively furnished with all the necessities to make for a pleasant stay. There's excellent air conditioning in the bedrooms for use when needed, although elevation seems to keep the villi itself pretty cool even during hot weather. The central rooms do not have air-conditioning but we didn't find it necessary in any event.
There is a large outdoor deck with an outdoor picnic table for dining and a large grill which if necessary could probably be used to grill meat for a small wedding reception. Our kids spent hours in the pool which has lights that can be turned at night for a romantic before-bedtime dip.
The drive up to the villa is certainly a bit hair-raising but I suppose that's the price one must pay for the beautiful views. I don't believe it's possible to rent anything less than the four-wheel-drive in St. John anyway, so there shouldn't really be a problem."

"SMS is a beautiful home with a beautiful view. While we visited in off season our trip was fantastic. The weather was great which allowed for half days at the beach (enjoying the sun, swimming and snorkeling) and the other half day on the deck and floating in the pool. SMS owners worked to make our schedule work and also have a great property manager who was friendly, helpful and immediately available. I thought for sure the day of departure I would be leaving alone, my girlfriend was staying! Fortunately a quick promise to return in the near future got her in the Jeep for the trip home, pretty sure the next trip will consist of only one of us returning home! 5 stars for SMS."

"Had a wonderful stay here in July. The property is everything you would hope for and perhaps the best thing I can say about it is that there were no disappointments. The kitchen and all the pots, dishes, utensils, etc. were great (we ate in nearly every day and the kitchen had everything we needed and then some), the furniture and property overall showed that it's well taken care of and great quality (and the bed was really comfortable), and the property overall has a light and airy feel to it. We wondered whether we should be concerned about the lack of A/C but it's so high up and the breeze is so constant that there were only a couple of evenings where we even thought about it (and that's when the breeze had died down a bit so we turned on the overhead fans). Most evenings you'd be comfortable in a long-sleeved shirt once the sun goes down. We debated between staying "up high" or down closer to the water, and we liked the views so much that we'll be staying up the hill again next time. We're not big pool users, but the pool was a pleasant temperature to jump into on hot days. It's a great location if you want to be close to both the north and the south beaches. Also, I can't say enough about the great service from Windspree, the property manager. When our flight down was canceled they immediately agreed to shift our rental period by a day since it was available. The only thing we'd recommend is a stronger wifi router so it can reach to the master bedroom."

"This house had it all! First, the management company who runs it couldn't have been better. They were friendly, helpful and all around wonderful. Second, the house is very conveniently located. It is about a 5 min drive to the grocery story, 8 minutes to Cruz Bay and still very very secluded. It was well appointed, had a great kitchen, awesome views, great pool, etc etc etc. We will be heading back to St John and will not even look at other properties. This one had it all! Also - as a side note, we used Conrad Sutton Car Rental Agency. They were great too! An added bonus is that they are located in the heart of Cruz Bay and they allow you to park your rental car there for free anytime. With parking at a premium, it was a great added benefit. Finally, our favorite beach - bar none - was Hansen Bay. I would put it up against Greece, Italy, Hawaii, Dominican.....It is a little bit of a drive (30 mins from house) but is secluded and absolutely gorgeous. Plus, Vie's Snack Shack is about 150 feet from the bay (closed Sunday/Monday; 9-5 other days) and has great authentic West Indian cuisine. Wonderful trip!!!!"
