We're back !!
"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!"

"This was a very nice house to stay in. FYI: this was my 6th trip to St. John and we've stayed in a different place each time. This trip, we stayed with another couple. Our friends stayed in the "better" suite with the double doors to the veranda. Very cute room, and the pictures make it look very lovely. It is, but... the curtains needed to be shut all the time because someone lives downstairs and there was construction happening on the sidewalks around the place. There were people walking around often enough to mandate closed curtains and loss of the sunny room. There were no curtains on the bathroom so my friend had to tape a garbage bag up. (though someone did come and hang some curtains one day when we were out). The other bedroom was okay. Someone else complained that the bathroom needed updating. Either it had been or I thought it was fine. I do understand that updates don't happen in the VI like we are accustomed to in the states because material and labor cost so much there, so maybe I'm just more understanding. That being said, the peeling paint on the jaccuzi deck REALLY does need to be re-done. It's just bad. Also, we were told that the jacuzzi heats on a timer, but it was never (never) warm enough for us to use. The living areas are beautiful. The location is great as it is a very easy and quick drive into town, the roads/driveway is good."

"Great location with stunning views. Sinbad the manager is fantastic. It takes just a few minutes to go into town but far enough away where all you hear is the sounds of nature. The porch, and hot tub is perfect. The Cottage is exactly as pictured and a perfect size for 1-3 people."

"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."
