Recent USVI/St. John reviews

  • Our favorite place

    "We have been to St. John 20 times and for the last 8 years we have stayed at Haiku. The house is well designed and well maintained. The views are nice, it is private and very well located and convenient to town. It suits us perfectly whether there are just the two of us or we have a houseful of children and grandchildren. The open plan creates a lot of living space. We have booked our next visit."

  • Exactly what we'd build.

    "We've been visiting St. John since the mid-80's and have rented on every part eventually purchasing a lot on Majestic Mile. Based on our experience we were looking for a villa with down island views above Coral Bay but without the extra drive around the bay since we knew we'd make daily trips to the North Shore beaches and Cruz Bay. We chose Villa Carolina for the huge views - Coral Bay and all the way around to Jost, the vanishing edge pool/patio, the outdoor stone showers and the layout which is ideal for 2 couples. It's on the ridgeline on the uphill side of Majestic Mile. By coincidence it's just east of our lot so we were also looking forward to getting design ideas and a sense of what our views would be. Sharon has done a magnificent job of designing and building a villa that is appropriate for the island terrain and nestled into the side of the ridge (unlike some of recent monstrosities). She took advantage of the views and used local and imported building materials like local "blue bitch" stone and thick Brazilian hardwood French doors. It is a long and difficult building process on St. John so we took notice of all the little details Sharon incorporated into the design, construction and landscaping. There is an auto-opening wrought iron gate at the entrance and although the uphill driveway starts steep the lot flattens and there is a parking pad for multiple Jeeps. In addition to the identical suites on either side of the main room there's a third full suite on the lower level for kids or a third couple. Given the perfect weather and the lack of bugs at this elevation we left the five, arched, double French doors that open to the pool/patio open all the time which makes the entire front of the villa open to the outdoors. The morning sun rising over the BVI floods into the bedrooms and at night we enjoyed the moon and the stars over the SFD Channel. This is a real second home for Sharon and she visits often which means that you aren't staying in a stripped down investment rental, it's Sharon's home and she has furnished and stocked it with the best of everything... Tommy Bahama themed furniture, top quality large and small appliances, tons of cookware and utensils, quality linens, the best patio furniture and all the extras like beach chairs, coolers, etc. Villa Carolina is a gem and Sharon is a delightful owner. We'll be back!"

  • Great Family Vacation

    "My family of 5 stayed at Villa Mar De Amores for 8 fabulous days. The house sits high upon the hill with the most gorgeous views of Chocolate Hole. The house is fully equipped with everything you could want or need in a vacation rental. We grilled out almost every evening and enjoyed eating at the outside dining area and admiring the view. Our kids enjoyed the pool while we prepared dinner. We have 3 teenage sons and we had plenty of room in the house. The house is very spacious and a grocery store is not very far from the property. We spent the week exploring beaches and the island and it was all perfect. St. John is definitely a little piece of paradise. I spoke with Claudia several times on the phone before renting and then she was quick to answer any emails I sent to her. She was wonderful to work with. The entire experience of renting, receiving information, etc. was entirely positive. Coolers and beach chairs are available at the house and we packed a picnic lunch everyday and explored a new beach. The only negative thing about the whole trip was having to pack up to come home. Thank you for sharing your home with us."

  • Stop searching - this is the one!

    "We have been vacationing in St. John for several years and have been searching for the perfect villa. We found it in Vista Cielo. From the three master suites to the well appointed kitchen, it has it all. The layout was well planned, allowing for privacy for each of the bedroom suites. The architecture was impressive and designed for privacy outside as well as inside. It has one of the largest pools we've seen, with a breathtaking view. Having Brenda as a local contact for any unexpected needs was a plus, but not necessary as the villa had everything we wanted. The location is ideal - an upscale neighborhood not far from town or the beaches. You will not be disappointed."
