"Our family of 5 (plus one friend) enjoyed 10 nights in Almost Heaven. We are repeat visitors to STJ but have always stayed in the Westin until this trip. We found the home to be comparable to the condos we have rented at the Westin. We found the property to be conveniently located on Bordeaux Mtn but the driveway is not for the faint of heart! Do NOT attempt without four wheel drive! We enjoyed having the option of cooking in the kitchen, using the grill, or bringing in takeout and eating from the screened in porch. The kitchen has all the basics. Plus a few extras like sandwich bags, trash bags, etc. We enjoyed having access to beach towels, chairs and ice chest. We truthfully don't spend a lot of time in the house/condo but exploring STJ. We always enjoyed the house and it's amenities when we came back in the evenings."

"My husband and I stayed in the island orchid home for 6 nights. Another couple joined us for 4 of those nights. We loved that the only thing separating us from nature were screens. We loved the cool mountain breezes and although the daily temps were in the high 80's, we were very comfortable in this mountain property. Cooking in the screened, well stocked kitchen each morning and evening was such a treat. We really found this home to be exactly what we were looking for. If you want to feel like you are sleeping outside but with the comfort of comfy beds, pillows, fans, and rugs, then you will love this place. We were there mid-May and hadno issues with insects at all. Be sure to stop by daily for a smoothie from colombos, too! We will definitely stay here again if we have the chance to return."

"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!"
