"Great Turlte Villa is a wonderful home in a lovely location. Situated on top of hill/mountain overlooking Coral Bay, the views are amazing. Sunrises can be viewed to the east. Night time skies are filled with stars and the
Milky Way is clearly visible. Our family also enjoyed watching the shooting stars and hearing the nightly serenades from the crickets and tree frogs.
The house is comfortably furnished and quite inviting. Our family of seven, 4 of which are teens, all enjoyed the space and accomodations. The kitchen is well equipped. We were able to cook for our family easily with all that is provided.
The hills around Coral Bay are a great location, quiet and serene. Some mornings there is some noise from traffic below due to deliveries to Coral Bay. The drive to the beaches is convenient. Route 20 is beautiful road to the most popular beaches. Colombo Smoothies is a great refueling stop along the way. And for a delicious reasonably priced meal, checkout North Shore Deli .... The sandwiches are delicious!
Great Turtle Villa provided a wonderful safe setting and space for our family. Thank you to the owners and managers!"

Perfect Luxury Vacation Property - look no further!
"Villa Rhapsody exceeded our expectations in every way. The views are expansive and beautiful, and can not truly be captured in photos. The location is ideal. It's just a short drive to downtown St. John yet located atop a small cliff to ensure total privacy.
The villa itself is beautiful. The bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculate and the other living spaces were comfortable and very well equipped (not to mention the outdoor sound system). Every bedroom has an ocean view! The infinity pool and the Jacuzzi are also beautiful. Tons of outdoor tables, dining areas, outdoor sofas, and deck chairs to enjoy the amazing unobstructed views of the water and neighboring islands.
Before venturing off property to snorkel at one of the local beaches, we were quite pleased to find a cache of snorkeling gear, beach chairs, blankets, towels, umbrellas, coolers, kids toys, and more.
The staff at the villa were great too! Both Richard and the on-site property manager, Tommy, could not have been more accommodating. From arranging our car rental to advising on top restaurants and a private chef. They thought of everything and were always available to assist with any of our needs.
The villa is great for a romantic getaway or large groups. We had such a great and relaxing time. Villa Rhapsody is truly an amazing place. We look forward to going back to as soon as possible."

30th Anniversary (surprise 19 day Journey)....5 locations....each one, a surprise.....
"My wife and I travel and stay at VRBO's each year , all over. My wife and I stayed at Gibney beach cottage. I could describe this beautiful place in a thousand words, but I will be brief: beautiful in all the senses, charming, cozy, romantic, quiet, inviting, magical, clean, colorful, a dream come true, and safe (because you are still in USA).
Teri, the owner treated us like family, we loved her and wish her the best in the world.
Israel, the grounds keeper treated us like old friends, we spent a lot time talking each day, and he would offer and bring us coconuts, mangoes, etc. from the garden, what a treat.
We will return to this magical place someday soon, and keep it fresh in our minds with all the wonderful memories. Thank you Teri for sharing your beautiful place with others.
Mary and Angel. June 1 to June 8 - 2015."

"We couldn't have picked a better place to stay for our recent St. John visit. If you want to experience the island as you might if you were a local, this is perfect. Walking distance to Dolphin Market (for your various essentials) and all restaurants, bars, and shops in Cruz Bay & Mongoose Junction, it made all our errands & meals very easy and accessible. For excursions around the island, it's also conveniently located right on Centerline Rd., and very close to the N. Shore Rd., so you can get anywhere you need to go easily. The walk up to the villa is a bit steep (but only for a short distance), so if mobility is an issue, this may pose a challenge. The villa is bright, clean, and very comfortable, with just about all the amenitites you need for a visit to the island. As at least one other reviewer noted, on a busy night, you can hear some of the action "downtown," so peak seasons (presumably, like during Carnival?), it may be an issue. We were so well provisioned, that we never needed to engage property management (though I felt like stopping in just to say "hi!"). The only thing that would prevent us from staying here again is that we will take our kids with us on our next visit, so we'd need another BR."
