Wonderful Family Vacation Place
"We stayed for five nights at Stonegarden Cottage. From the beginning, it was a wonderful place for our family to stay on St. John. The hosts, Thom and Jackie, were very helpful and accomodating for our first visit to the island. The Cottage receives cool mountain breezes and has an amazing view. It comes with a fully equipped kitchen and the outdoor grill was brand new. We found it very relaxing to cook and eat all our meals at the Cottage. Our first stop after picking up the rental Jeep was Starfish Market to buy food in Cruz Bay. We loved the beautiful grounds of the Cottage. Our son caught lizards and a crab. We used the beach towels, chairs, and cooler provided by Stonegarden for our daily snorkeling trips to the beach. We snorkeled Maho bay twice (sea turtles), Trunk Bay (arrived before 9 am to beat the crowds), Princess Bay (mangrove snorkeling), and Waterlemon Cay (the 0.1 mile snorkey was not difficult). Stonegarden Cottage is very conveniently located for Maho, Princess, and Waterlemon. The Cottage beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms have a unique tropical feel with lots of plants and shells. At night, we enjoyed playing games and watching videos that are in Stonegarden. One night we even had a goofy concert with the musical instruments. We loved staying in quieter Coral Bay. Relative to Cruz Bay, Stonegarden Cottage offers a very relaxed Caribbean getaway."

"Had a wonderful stay here in July. The property is everything you would hope for and perhaps the best thing I can say about it is that there were no disappointments. The kitchen and all the pots, dishes, utensils, etc. were great (we ate in nearly every day and the kitchen had everything we needed and then some), the furniture and property overall showed that it's well taken care of and great quality (and the bed was really comfortable), and the property overall has a light and airy feel to it. We wondered whether we should be concerned about the lack of A/C but it's so high up and the breeze is so constant that there were only a couple of evenings where we even thought about it (and that's when the breeze had died down a bit so we turned on the overhead fans). Most evenings you'd be comfortable in a long-sleeved shirt once the sun goes down. We debated between staying "up high" or down closer to the water, and we liked the views so much that we'll be staying up the hill again next time. We're not big pool users, but the pool was a pleasant temperature to jump into on hot days. It's a great location if you want to be close to both the north and the south beaches. Also, I can't say enough about the great service from Windspree, the property manager. When our flight down was canceled they immediately agreed to shift our rental period by a day since it was available. The only thing we'd recommend is a stronger wifi router so it can reach to the master bedroom."

"My wife and I have been coming to St. John for 15 years and have stayed in a variety of houses. Skyflower is by far the best we have stayed in to date. The quality of the house and furnishings is only surpassed by the location on Bordeaux Mountain. The views are second to none on the island. The trade winds provide cool evenings, bug free. Easy trip up from Coral Bay and easy to go down the backside of the mountain in to Cruz Bay. We can't wait to stay there again."

"We were lucky to stay in Coral Bay for one month this year. Our first week was spent at Mountain Haven. What a tremendous way to begin. Although the photos on this VRBO site are beautiful, nothing truly prepares you for your first walk around the corner on the deck. I kept telling my husband that it was so incredibly beautiful, it looked fake! Well, it isn't. I *worked* every morning from a table and my view was expansive and breathtaking. Every day we would put out sugar for the birds and it was so nice to see them gathering to feast. The place was beautifully appointed inside and out. We found the bed to be very comfortable, the kitchen clean and full of everything we needed. The closet space was most appreciated, as it was quite large. The bathroom was very clean, the outdoor shower (it's in a separate room off of the deck) was very clean and convenient, too.
Last, but certainly not least: Part of our experience that really stood out for us this week was the hospitality and friendliness of the managers, Thom and Jackie. From the moment they welcomed us at the Ferry, we felt a bond with them. They are talkative and abound with energy and knowledge about the island. They definitely gave us our private space, but we contacted them to hang out with us on a few deck evenings, too. When we had some trouble with our rental car later in our vacation (and at this point, not even staying at Mountain Haven), we contacted them and they helped us with a solution. We were so appreciative of this and of the property owner's assistance as well. For these and many other reasons, we hope to enjoy Mountain Haven in the future. I cannot get that VIEW off of my mind!"
