Recent USVI/St. John reviews

  • Loved this place!

    "I was really surprised by the previous negative review. We found the cottage immaculate, with everything in working order..the outdoor shower was even clean as can be! The whole cottage is very charming....tile floors on both levels...the upstairs bedroom has cathedral ceilings and was huge. Great screened in porch and it's a short 15 minute drive into town. Marc was great to work with and very prompt in returning my calls and e-mails. One mistake that was made by me was renting a sedan...the steep hills on the island really require a jeep. My companion and I both fell head over heals in love with St. John and can't wait to return someday...we'll definitely be renting here again!"

  • Beautiful Home- Perfect for a Group

    "This was our 4th time in St. John, but our first time to rent a villa. We rented Casa de Sonadores to celebrate a 40th birthday with 3 couples and 2 children ages 7 and 9. The rental process was smooth and the owners and caretakers were readily available to answer any and all questions pre-arrival. There were no problems arriving in Saint John and the caretakers promptly met us at the ferry dock. They were nice enough to secure all three jeep rentals ahead of time since we arrived late and secure parking and helped us tote our luggage and load up for departure to the villa. The drive from Cruz Bay is about 8 minutes. We were thrilled when we arrived at the house. It was just as pictured. The landscaping is beautiful. The furnishings were well kept. The kitchen had everything we needed. Although we did not do much cooking, we could have if we had wanted to. The frig was stocked with a few goodies and beverages. Enough to hold us over until we could stock up at the store the next day. For a rental we found the house very well maintained. No spiderwebs, dust in corners etc, I even checked under the bed. We were also pleased to find plenty of beach chairs and snorkel gear for our use. The bedrooms were of ample size and pretty much all the same so no one felt like they were getting a bad room. The outdoor showers were amazing. The AC in all the rooms worked fabulously which was super important to us. We rented a villa on another island previously which had no AC and we got very little sleep... so AC was really important to me this time. I was not disappointed. The owners even called in to check in on us to make sure everything was ok, which was nice. We have not experienced that with other rental properties. All in all a great experience and would highly recommend."

  • Awesome view and amenities

    "My wife and I just returned from our first stay in St. John and Island Dreams was the perfect place for us. It's location is quiet and private and the view of Coral Bay was beautiful. We spent hours sitting by the pool and enjoying the view along with the island breeze. Beaches for snorkeling are only a short drive away. We grilled out almost every night and the kitchen was completely stocked with everything we needed. If you are looking for a place to completely unwind and remember who you are, this is the place!"

  • Lovely Private Retreat

    "We found Pelican House online and wondered if it could be as wonderful as it looked online. We telephoned with endless questions so warmly and willingly answered by Nancy & Jason. That certainly invoked confidence. We were well instructed what to expect upon arrival to ST Thomas, how to ferry to ST John & where to meet them after we picked up our jeep. How nice to make that journey knowing that after we met, we would be escorted to the house to ensure we would find the home easily. So, how did we feel upon viewing this location that we hoped would be good? IT SURPASSED OUR EXPECTATIONS!!! We were promptly given the tour of our space and amenities. Few places are as good as advertised but how wonderful to see our spectacular view, and numerous spaces available to fit the mood. There is an amazing gazebo with comfortable furniture that is a space I can still close my eyes and imagine myself at. A separate outdoor deck for lounging, dining & grilling are at your disposal. Or simply walk down the steps to your private beach with chairs, kayaks, life vets. You can swim, snorkel, kayak or do nothing. The sea grape trees give shade to such a lovely spot. At the house there is also a screened living/dining space that was so comfortable. Two bedrooms but it was just my husband and myself so we chose the bedroom facing the water, standing up each day to the glory of our view and sleeping to the sounds of the waves. The kitchen is equipped with all you need but if you need something just ask. Soda, water and a bottle of rum was a nice gift to get us started on our vacation! Noodles to swim with, extra suntan lotion, beach towels, folding beach chairs to take around the island all there for your use. We covered the island with our jeep and went to so many of the beautiful beaches each with different attributes and snorkel opportunities. Saw barracuda, puffer, tarpon, mutton snapper, squid, and all the colorful fish you can imagine. Market nearby for emergency but better options/prices in Coral Bay. Went to Annaberg Sugar Plantation Ruins. Interesting and loved the view too. Saw mongoose, deer, iguana. We also took advantage of Jason's services as a boat captain. He met with us and arranged a trip tailored to us. I am extremely sensitive to motion so only did part of the trip but got to see sea stars & sea cucumbers. My husband spent a full day at sea, stops & BVI. He had a blast! Thx Jason & Nancy! Enough? GO! It's private, quiet & beautiful!"
