BEST KEPT SECRET ON ST. JOHN!
"I know most of you are searching endlessly for that 'perfect' place to spend a wonderful vacation that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.... well - LOOK NO FURTHER!! Stone Post Cottage is a Treasure! We are repeat visitors to St. John and have stayed in numerous places from resorts to villas. Our Stone Post experience was the best by far!
The Cottage is exactly as described. It is perfectly situated - easy access to town ( YOU WILL NEED A CAR ), quiet and tropical - perched on a hill with a fantastic view out to the ocean. We were met by our lovely caretaker when we got to the island and followed in OUR RENTAL CAR to Stone Post. The cottage was meticulously clean, charmingly furnished, with custom details abound. The bathroom was spacious, up to date hardware with a fantastic shower. Every morning was spent on our balcony with a good cup of coffee looking out across the island. The gardens are full of beautiful tropical plants attracting hummingbirds. I have never seen as many! Make sure you check out the night blooming cactus - STUNNING! On the property is a FULL SIZE LAP POOL that is brilliantly clean that we were fortunate to have to ourselves and a large jacuzzi. The caretaker of the property was wonderful with us and such a pleasure to meet. I also participated in the "Pool Pilates" class which was a blast - made some new friends and learned more about the island - beaches, restaurants e.t.c
We really had such a great experience - very sad to leave. We will definitely be returning to our tiny island home."

"My husband and i celebrated our 20th anniv at Seanest and could not have been any happier with that decision! The villa was as described but the pics do not capture the full beauty of really staying in their tropical paradise! The villa was so very clean and thoughtfully decorated and stocked. We had zero complaints about the accomodations! Its well worth the stay to honor their water/electric conservation requests. We will return to Seanest and recommend any who want a beautiful island getaway. Dave, the owners assistant was above and beyond helpful and kind with great tips for the best on site massage and even suggested a perfect gentleman to use when we wanted taxi service! Thank you Paul, Joan and Dave for helping us really celebrate our 20th!!"

"My wife and I have been to St. John three times (staying once in the owner's other villa) and each time it is of course fantastic. Calypso was a great home away from home with everything you need from kitchen supplies, coolers, beach stuff (and for kids!) and cards for the late night games. We brought our two kids aged 5 and 3 and the villa manager set up one room for them as we stayed next door. We also brought my wives parents and all four of the adults agreed that Calypso was the nicest villa we have stayed in so far. The hot tub is a great plus even though the weather is always perfect. The porches are great to relax outside and even in a 3BR you have so much space sometimes it is hard to find each other! The pool is awesome with great views and really what else can you ask for. The location is right next to the supermarkets and Cruz Bay for the late nights or early dinners and drinks.
We would highly recommend, though it seems many agree as it is ALWAYS booked!
Thanks to the owners for a wonderful time and we will be back again next year!"

"Tom and I wanted to thank you for allowing to let us stay in your charming little honeymoon cottage with the amazing view and all of the comfortable amenities. We had the best vacation of our lives thanks in part by our stay at Chocolate Hole Meritage Cottage. It was so nice to come “home” at night and make a frozen margharita in the blender to sit outside on the porch or soak in the hot tub. The grounds and flowers were beautiful and we enjoyed watching the iquanas in the big tree!
We tried our best to see and experience as much as we could on St. John (swimming, snorkeling, hiking, sight seeing, sunsets, eating & drinking). One day we went to Virgin Gorda to see the Baths which were amazing. Of course we couldnt do everything, so we have saved it for the next time. I hope you will allow us to come back and stay again!
Anyway…….we can't thank you enough for, I know it sounds corny, but this gift of staying at a sweet home in St. John. And a big thank you to Sinbad for welcoming us to the island and giving us the low-down. He was extreme helpful."
