  • Wonderful Week at Rhumb Runners and St John!

    "The villa was exactly as described and pictured and suited our family of 4 perfectly. In addition, the villa was very clean and well maintained. The owners were very quick to answer all of my emails and questions about both the villa and St John, helping to make our stay extra special. The drive up the driveway was a challenge but well worth the effort as the villa does indeed have magnificent views and strong breezes. We stayed at Rhumb Runners in late July. The villa was always cool and pleasant. We were glad to have the AC option in the bedrooms and did use it on some of the more humid nights. The pool is even lovelier than the pictures. We enjoyed it both in the mornings and evenings. We liked being on the much quieter and very friendly side of the island. We ate out in Coral Bay at Skinny Legs, great burgers and a terrific atmosphere, and Aquabistro, beautiful spot at the bottom of our hill. We did drive into Cruz Bay to enjoy a lovely dinner at Rhumblines. We were also more than happy to prepare dinner at the Villa, especially after a long day of beaching and snorkeling. Rhumb Runners is so charming that we didn't feel the need to go out to eat very often. Preparing meals at the villa was only difficult because of the lack of groceries in the vicinity. Although there are two convenient markets in Coral Bay, Calabash Market and Love City Mini Mart, the selection of groceries in the "off season" or summer months is poor. We wish we had stocked up with more groceries at Starfish Market in Cruz Bay. If we had, we might never have eaten out! Truly, Rhumb Runners is a charming villa on an enchanting island."

    "The moment we walked into the house it was enchanting. The height of the house gave it, it's antique architecture and spacious rooms made it perfect for a big family. The view was breathtaking and it was so nice outside we didn't use the air conditioning system once. I would definitely recommend this house and trip to family and friends!"

  • A Wonderful Initiation to St. John!

    "Of the many villas available on St. John, we selected the Periwinkle Cottage after much research. It was a rewarding decision! The Periwinkle offered a great deal of amenities, not least of which, was the beautiful view. The charming cottage has a welcoming, airy layout. The ample kitchen and bedroom doors, on two floors, open up to the warm breeze and create a large, comfortable living space. The wide porches were phenomenal. We looked forward to coming home each day after exploring the island's trails and beaches. The Periwinkle Cottage is a cozy, sheltered respite. Each evening we took advantage of the Jacuzzi, but the pool was too cool for daily use. (The cottage remained in the shade after 3pm). Beach chairs, towels, coolers, are all on hand. You'll need a four-wheel drive, some determination, and a bit of courage to get up and down the driveway each day. The road was washed out in a number of spots - many holes and protruding rocks. The close proximity to Love City Mart was a big plus! It's the cheapest place on the island for food/alcohol. And things are expensive! We recommend that you bring a stockpile of food and take advantage of the Periwinkle's full kitchen. Local restaurants are delicious though. The beds were stiff. Some aches and pains in the morning. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, and the extra toilet upstairs was handy. Do you like roosters? I hope so. You'll be greeted by their croaks each morning. Occasionally, they'll decide to get you up earlier, say 2 AM, maybe midnight. But, the roaming sheep, goats, geckos, and bananaquits (put out some sugar ... you'll see) were charming. Overall, the Periwinkle Cottage is an excellent destination. Close enough to everything in Coral Bay, but remote enough to feel private and quaint. We would gladly stay here again!"

  • Very Impressed by the details!

    "This was our first time to St. John and I had never done a villa rental before (usually stay in all inclusive resorts). The other couple we stayed with booked the villa as they absolutely love the island. We were SO impressed with the details and comforts appointed by this villa. The owners have overlooked nothing. It was great to have such amenities as coolers, beach chairs and towels, and a BBQ grill. We cooked out a couple of nights and it was lovely to eat out on the patio. The pool and landscaping were beautiful. I couldn't believe how well stocked the kitchen was !! Everything we wanted/needed was right there. We felt right at home and couldn't have been happier. It was such an amazing week. I love St. John and Longview Villa. We will definitely be back!!"
