In love with Estate Rose
"Estate Rose is absolute paradise! I just returned from an eight day stay. The first half of the trip was a girls getaway with the second half a romantic vacation with my husband. I thought the pictures on VRBO were beautiful, but my expectations were far exceeded in person. Breathtaking! The grounds are amazing and so beautifully kept. The living quarters are top notch with access to a gourmet kitchen, game room, library, workout area and outdoor patio and grill. The pool area is surrounded by luxurious outdoor furniture with a variety of options to sit in full sun or be shaded. The views are stunning from any direction on the estate. The owner has thought of every detail, including robes and coffee pots in each room as well availability to a concierge for activity planning. One day we had in home massages that were the ultimate in relaxation.
I have been to other islands before, but this was my first visit to St. John. We loved the feel of the island. Very casual, easy going and everyone is extremely friendly. I loved that the staff at the bars and restaurants are so outgoing. I feel like we made friends with everyone we came in contact with. We did take an all day boat trip via See and Ski. The tour was awesome! We were on the water from 8-5, seeing most of the VI's and stopping at several. Capt. Daniel was so knowledgable!
I will definitely return to St. John and Estate Rose. Would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. I can't wait until next time!"

"I can't say enough about DCT to adequately describe our stay there. We had a fantastic time using this great villa as our "home base." We loved the location because not only were we within easy driving distance to shops, grocery stores and restaurants, but we were right on a fairly private beach (hard to find in St. John).
The management company was very easy to work with and they answered all my questions promptly and thoroughly. They also provided "greeters" to meet us at the ferry dock, with our Jeep rental, to ensure we made it to the house with no problems. They even provided beach chairs and coolers to take with us to the other beaches (no beach umbrella could be found but hopefully next time).
The home comes with washer/dryer, full kitchen (one with a beautiful view of the water just outside), in-room safes, outside showers (loved those), a gas grill, pool and hot tub.
The only things I would mention is that you take note that all the bedrooms are accessed from the outside (something to consider if you have small children) and the beach is a rock beach not a sandy beach (but was great for snorkeling if you watch out for the sea urchins).
All in all, I wouldn't hesitate to recomend Dreams Come True to anyone looking for a St. John villa rental, especially if they are looking for one on the water and close to Cruz Bay. The amenities are great, the view is fantastic and the value can't be beat."

"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."

"This was our second trip to St. John and our second stay at Poi Pu... but definitely not our last! There were so many wonderful updates to the villa even since our last visit (e.g., appliances, bedding, tile work), but by far our favorite was the new hammock by the dipping pool. We spent many hours in that spot, enjoying the spectacular view and breeze off the water, as well as the privacy. One of our favorites things about Poi Pu is that it's so accommodating you don't feel the need to be in town all the time. Between relaxing in the hammock, grilling on the fancy Weber, cooling off in the pool, and sunbathing on the deck, you have everything you need right there! Also, Jackie and Jeff (and the property manager, Teri) are super responsive and eager to better your stay in any way they can. This is a beautiful property. We're already counting the days till next year!"
