  • Excellent vacation home

    "We stayed for several days with 2 other couples. This was the perfect set up for us as each bedroom was on a separate level with a private bath. There is also the main gathering space where the kitchen, living room, dining room and outdoor patio was located, so if several people wanted to stay up late, or get up earlier no one would be disturbed. The property was very quiet and peaceful. I felt like I was staying at a friend's house the entire time, everything was right there. And the sunset view of seeing St. Thomas was incredible! The pool was nice, but we really appreciated the hot tub in the evenings when it got a little chillier. The owner Franklin was extremely helpful with any questions we had. Would definitely recommend!"

  • Breathtaking views from a beautiful and unique island home!

    "I stayed at the Stonegarden Cottage lower level on Saint John in August 2014 and it was one of the best vacations I've ever had! The home is nestled on a hillside over looking the sailing paradise of Coral Bay with breathtaking views of the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. This part of the island receives steady trade winds year round that are like natural air conditioning! The home is just gorgeous and unlike some other Island homes it fits in with the natural surroundings of this amazing forested island that is two thirds national park. I stayed in the lower level which is perfect for a single traveler or couple. There is every modern convenience you might and its thoughtfully and tastefully decorated with island art and nautical items from the owners family who are sailors themselves and an important part of the history of the island. From this home you have access to the most remote and beautiful parts of the island yet you are just minutes from the conveniences and night life of Coral Bay. You never need to leave the property to have a wonderful trip but if you do the world class trails, reefs, and beaches of Saint John will not disappoint! So book your trip and plan on leaving your cellphone and lap top at home. You will never miss themI When you reluctantly return from your vacation at Stonegarden Cottage you will have a million beautiful pictures and memories etched in your mind!"

    "What a great time had by all!! Cold AC, and a balcony right on the water... Everything was great!! Didn't spend a lot of time in the room for obvious reasons, but it was everything and more that we needed!!"

  • Just What the Doctor Ordered

    "At times, we need to take a break from the lives we are living, to slow down the pace a notch or two. Resonate for you? Then, look no further. This St. John villa is the balm to soothe your body and soul. Described as a romantic villa, which is most certainly true, this rental is a sensorial delight. Each aesthetic detail of this thoughtfully-decorated home, truly how you feel once you set foot inside, is beyond the advertised pictures. From the art on the walls to the fabric of the armchair upholstery to the cherry wood bathroom paneling, one feels pampered by the owners who take pride in their property, as well as respect you as a renter. The bamboo shades, the rooster-motif light plates, the leather-bound guest books, and the linen tablecloths and napkins pre-set on the dinette table are other special touches. Stocked shelves of varied genres of books and CDs were provided for our entertainment. Clean and well-maintained both inside and out- this villa is so lovely! As for the villa’s surroundings, it is nestled in a hill with magnificent views of lush vegetation. Sitting on the deck whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you will find yourself making friends with nature- looking out for your favorite bird whose visits are second only to those of the precious geckos who carry out their business without ever becoming a nuisance. The flowers and the brain coral sit nearby taking in the view alongside you. The owners of this fine property were most gracious, offering us their private pool as a change from swimming at the beaches. They provided a tome of information about what to do and where to go in the form of a well-organized binder of typed content, flyers, and maps. After perusing the materials they supplied, we found a visit to the ruins of the sugar plantation at Annaberg and a sampling of the conch fritters at a stand nearby most memorable. Beach hopping and hiking were also fun. Although the villa’s kitchen is well-stocked allowing for cooking and eating in which we did during our stay, some favorite meals were had at the Lime Inn and High Tide; the mahi-mahi at these restaurants can’t be beat! If you want to experience an exquisite tasting ice cream-try lavender honey vanilla at the homemade ice cream shop. Savoring my last mouthful, I thought about transporting this otherworldly treat home. I will just have to return along with the friends and family to whom I have recommended this wonderful getaway!"
