"Well, it is day one of Skyflower withdrawal and we are doing as good as can be expected for leaving behind paradise for home in the midwest! We are expecting our first baby this year, so our focus for this vacation was the perfect, romantic week to celebrate our last months as a two person family. A lot of research went into finding our paradise, and we cannot believe how beyond expectations this trip was for us.
Pictures and words cannot even begin to express the true beauty of the Skyflower property. It is so much more than what is presented in this listing (everything listed is completely accurate). The minute we exited our jeep and headed down the stairs to Skyflower Suite, we knew we had found something special. No matter where we went on the island, nothing rivaled the view right outside our door from the expansive deck. But the view is not limited to breakfasts with Jan's delicious homemade banana muffins with tea or reading out on the deck - the view can be seen from the living area, kitchen, outdoor shower, and even lying in the comfortable king sized bed. There is nothing like waking up and looking out the door to see a beautiful sunrise over the surrounding islands.
To say Bill and Jan were gracious hosts is an understatement. I am so glad our time in St. John overlapped with the time they spend on the island. Besides being a wealth of knowledge for St. John, they are such genuine and nice people. Our stay would not have been as perfect as it was without their guidance to the best beaches, restaurants, etc., and we thoroughly enjoyed conversations with them on their deck. They hosted a cocktail hour with us before dinner one night, which was great. They even had a small gift for us (the most adorable sea turtle onesie for our future daughter)!
We would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone considering a trip to the Coral Bay side of St. John. For first timers like us, do not let the advice of "there's not as much to do on the Coral Bay side" fool you. We ate at a different restaurant every night, there is a small plaza with shops, restaurants, and a grocery store right at the bottom of the street from the property and many other attractions on the east side of the island are only a 10-15 minute drive. We did not return to the Cruz Bay side until it was (sadly)P time to leave.
Thank you so much Bill and Jan for a wonderful experience! We are truly grateful for everything and hope to see you again in the future!"

"We travel to St John annually and have tried many locations on the island. We prefer the less populated areas and Catherineberg wins our vote for best location. Cinnamon Tarn has the perfect layout for two couples with the bedrooms situated on either end of the living area for privacy. The bathrooms are great with large garden showers. In the past we have rented a house with a pool but have found that the water is usually too cold to enjoy. The hot tub was a great alternative. We loved watching the boat traffic in Francis Bay and Drake's channel. To do so I recommend that you bring binoculars. The kitchen had everything we needed (we cooked in several times to enjoy the view) and the laundry room was a bonus for those of us who travel lightly. The road to get to the house is a little rough but definitely worth the drive. Any issues that we had were handled promptly by Mark and staff. Looking forward to next year."

"SeaRock Villa is beautiful, comfortable, and the perfect spot to stay on St. John. We loved Coral Bay, and the view from Sea Rock is spectacular. The roads and driveway leading to the villa are easy to navigate and restaurants and markets are nearby. Our most favorite beaches were those closest to the villa too. The house is well-stocked and immaculate; the beds are comfortable; the view amazing every time. Dan was very responsive and easy to work with, and his on-island recommendations were spot on. Thank you for a terrific 10 days. We hope to return soon."

"My husband and I recently stayed at Grand Bay. The condo was everything that the description said and more! It was clean, comfortable and the perfect amount of space for the 2 of us! The owner, Anna was great in helping us plan our trip prior to our arrival. She was quick to answer our inquiries and her knowledge of the island was extremely helpful. Laurie the property manager was easy to reach and was there to meet us upon our arrival at the Ferry Dock. The views from the condo were amazing and we spent time every morning with our coffee watching the sailboats as well as watching the sunset in the evening from the patio! The kitchen is well stocked and was handy in making our lunches for the beach but we always walked down the street to town for dinner and drinks! I would definitely recommend this condo for your stay on the beautiful island of St John! I will be renting this condo on our next visit to St John! Can't wait."
