Great place for family!!!
"We stayed in Simply Paradise this past April and it was fantastic! Perfect location, great views, nice and cool(ac worked great!) had everything we needed, plenty of space and our boys (6 and 3) loved the kids room and all the toys that were there! This kept them busy while we enjoyed the morning view with our coffee on the deck. Hot tub was great as well and we took advantage of it almost every day! The only complaint (if you can call it a complaint...we were in paradise!) was there were only 4 beach towels for the 4 of us all week...they dried off every night but were pretty salty sandy by the 3rd day. There is a washer and dryer but we didn't want to spend the time waiting for them to get washed/dried before heading out for the day. We ended up getting a few of out own towels for the week. Other than that a perfect 10!"

Perfect villa for our party of 5 adults and 3 kids
"Wonderful location, home and view. We miss it already! The villa has everything you need for an exjoyable stay including a leave behind closet with beer and liquor (check this before buying your provisions, we left some nice stuff!), snorkel equipment, and sand toys. Eight beach chairs were provided as well as beach towels and bath towels. We had 3 small children with us (ages 5. 6, and 9) and the set up of this house allowed us to have everyone sleep in their bedroom without worrying because 2 bedrooms were under the main roof. We could lock the sliders in the bedrooms up high so the kids could only exit through the living room instead of walking downstairs near the pool. The island was wonderful. Every beach and hike had something different and special. Crandall on St. John did a great job getting our rental cars and groceries. Would recommend without hesitation! Enjoyed the free drink coupons as well :-)"

"We enjoyed the week of June 7th at the beautiful Sopre Mare. We were absolutely overcome by the breathtaking and panoramic ocean views. The villa is sited perfectly to catch the tropical breezes and we very much enjoyed the outside pool, terraces, and balconies. In fact, we found ourselves outside for the majority of our stay! The house is perfectly equipped with everything we needed. Colleen, the property manager, was so welcoming and while we didn't need to call on her, she made herself available to us 24/7. The owner is incredibly responsive and responsible as well. You cannot go wrong at Sopre Mare! If you are looking for true privacy, relaxation, and beauty, this is your spot!"

"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."
