  • Private pool over looking chocolate hole

    "Fabulous, picture's don't do this justice! It was very nice of Suzanne to meet us at the car ferry to help us find the Villa and showed us around incase we had any questions or concerns"

  • Couldn't have had a better experience!

    "We had such a wonderful time in St John, and the lovely and relaxing Bambooshay Villa was a huge part of what made our trip great. The pictures don't lie- the views from the porch really are that breath taking! It was just the two of us for this trip and the villa was just the right size, although we are already planning a return trip and hope to bring our young son, who would have no trouble sleeping on the couch in the living room. (Even though the porch is high up, it's very safe and the front yard is flat and fenced- safe for kids.) The location was just right- convenient to town for groceries and evening cocktails, but secluded enough to feel like a private oasis. Tom and Melody, the property managers, were extremely helpful and made us feel very safe and comfortable. We had a small problem with the water cistern one evening, and Tom was there literally minutes after we called him to do the repairs. Our favorite beaches were Salt Pond and Haulover, both near Bambooshay- great snorkeling, and the hike to Ram Head from Salt Pond was a highlight of the trip. Another favorite part was falling asleep at night with the sound of tree frogs outside the bedroom window. Would definitely recommend this place to just about anyone."

  • Beautiful Villa, Exactly as Expected

    "My wife and I stayed 8 days here on our baby moon vacation and found the villa to be a great value. Kitchen is well appointed for cooking meals in, and we made several lizard friends there, just keep it cleaned up or the ants will flock! Washer and dryer were very handy too since we packed light. Access from Centerline road was doable in a Toyota Yaris by just maneuvering around the few high rocks in the access road. We arrived after dark and had no trouble finding it with the clear step by step directions provided. The master bedroom did have a portable air conditioner in it but we found that it had little impact since the windows were only screened. That is the ONLY thing we would have changed, and I'm sure most of the year the temperature is perfect. We just happened to come at the hottest time of year. Even so, the breezes in the open floor plan of the main level were wonderful and kept the afternoon temps comfortable. Wifi worked perfectly for when we needed to look up places to go. Coral Bay in my opinion is the best place to stay if you're planning to spend time exploring the island as you can easily go east, west, or south to most anywhere in <20 minutes. Some rental properties included kayaks and I wish Little Palms had as well but we made due by bringing our inflatable kayak so we could explore and snorkel around Henley Cay, Whistling Cay, Mermaids Chair, and get to the Caneel resort beaches without paying for a rental or admission fees. I'd absolutely recommend the villa to my friends & family!"

  • True Island Experience!

    "My husband and I had previously stayed at hotels/inns on the island, but decided we were comfortable enough to live like locals this time around. We could not have picked a more perfect oasis-- Reef Bay Cottage is close enough to get into town, but removed enough to enjoy the true tranquility that we love about St. John. Seng the owner was extremely easy to arrange with and was so welcoming the minute we arrived! She stressed how important it was to give her guests privacy but we also felt she was accessible for any questions--which we never had because she gave such a thorough introduction and recommendations! The cottage was perfect for us as a couple and had literally everything we could have needed-- even bug spray which at that time of year was necessary! We made use of the grill/lovely kitchen to make some at-home meals, cocktails on the terrace and visited the beach each evening for a dusk stroll. We still ventured out a few nights to Cruz Bay and found the usually crowded roads pretty empty in the evening hours to make for easier navigation of the tight--and sometimes harrowing--roads. We also loved that we could access our favorite trail, Reef Bay from walking the beach from the cottage with a few rock scrambles in between-it made for a much more interesting trek than in years' past! All in all, renting Reef Bay Cottage was the perfect first foray into our assimilation as more local than tourist, and Seng and her gorgeous property set a high standard. We will be back!"
