"Just enjoyed 10 nights in the cottage, very quiet and isolated. Kitchen was well equipped, king bed was very comfortable and cottage was very clean. No air conditioning, but only had one afternoon without a breeze just went to a beach gets very cool at night."

"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!"

"Our family just got back from a fabulous stay at Treetops. This was our first stay in St. John and will not be our last. We were met at the ferry dock and guided to the house, which was off the beaten path. The house was in great shape with lots of privacy. Treetops has many amenities and is very well stocked. Towels, linens, beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, washer/dryer and wifi. The pool and hot tub were in great shape and were nice to come home to after a full day on the beaches. The house even had a nice supply of liquor. Treetops is conveniently located about 10 minutes from Coral Bay or the North Shore beaches. We even found time to hike to the petroglyphs, which are not far away. Overall a great place to stay!"

"Our first trip to St. John was simply AWESOME, and made much more so by our stay at Drake's View. Aptly named, the views from this magnificent home tucked into the side of Bordeaux Mountain were spectacular, and the plush accommodations and private surroundings of this incredible find were more than we expected.
From the island's various hiking trails, numerous choices of aquamarine bays with beautiful beaches and incredible snorkeling...to Drake's View's fabulous landscaped pool and hot tub, spacious living environment, and sleeping to the open-windowed breezes off Coral Bay, this was truly "a little bit of paradise".
For family gatherings, groups of friends, Drake's View and St. John has it all. We would return in a heartbeat, and very much look forward to planning our next trip down."
