  • Excellent villa and location

    "This was our first time to St John and staying at Andante made it a fantastic trip. The property managers met us when we arrived via ferry and escorted us to the car rental office and then villa (we would have never found it on our own!) The owners, Marilyn and Rich, called us during the week to be sure everything was going as expected. The main floor 2 master suites are quite lovely and spacious. The lower suite is very private with great views but not as much breeze enters those windows so we needed to use the fans and A/C at night. The hammock is wonderful and a great place to take an afternoon nap. The villa has a very functional kitchen, well-stocked with various gadgets, tools, beautiful dinnerware and even spices and seasonings. The road up to the villa is challenging if you have a large car like we did but most Jeeps would have not problem. The pool, hot tub, stereo systems, fans, and furniture are all very high quality. The extra amenities like the beach chairs, snorkel gear, coolers, pool floats and washer/dryer all made this a perfect place for our vacation. You will not be disappointed if you stay here. It was only minutes away from 2 grocery stores and about 7-8 minutes from Cruz Bay. The location is very convenient and the sunrises and sunsets from the deck cannot be missed! Thank you, Marilyn and Rich, for sharing your lovely home with our group!"

  • Beautiful sunsets!

    "We enjoyed our recent Christmas vacation stay at La Barracuda! The property set up works perfectly for 3 couples- with 3 separate bedrooms/bathrooms on different levels and a common room with kitchen, dining, living & deck on the main level. The views from the deck are stunning! We did not use the pool (The beach water was warmer!) and the hot tub was out of service. La Barracuda is located up a very steep incline (Jeeps recommended), a quick drive to town - yet very private. The property could use a little TLC (especially new bed mattresses). But that said, for the very reasonable price, responsible and helpful owner and amenities - la Barracuda is an excellent choice!"

  • Nice house

    "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."

  • A Wonderful Week in Paradise

    "We had a beautiful week at Sopre Mare. This was our first stay at SM but I have visited St John for many years. The villa was very well equipped and the location was absolutely gorgeous. There were several times I told myself I felt we weren't taking enough advantage of the villa, because we were constantly out exploring the beaches and the rest of St John. There are not many places that you can sit and read a book and truly feel like you are looking at a post card. The owner is fantastic in his responsiveness and his property manager Colleen makes sure you are settled in. The villa is an 8 minute drive from town and is such a peaceful place to return to at night. We had a spectacular time and plan on returning to Sopre Mare without a doubt on our next visit to this beautiful island."
