  • AMAZING!!

    "Just got back from a great stay at Sweet Winds. The pictures don't do this place justice, the house is beyond perfect. The set up was great for two couples, we had a lot of privacy. The view of Hurricane Hole is amazing. Nina lives right next door and was always around if we had any questions. We love Nina! The house was stocked with everything we could possibly need. The beach chairs could be upgraded, but that's about the only complaint any of us had. The house is in a nice and quiet spot, she has a record player and a tons of records, so it was fun to blast music and not have to worry about bothering anyone. There place doesn't have an air conditioner, but you don't need it. Each room has a big screen door that you can keep open, and because of the wind there were NO bugs at all. The house is surrounded by a big deck which was great to hang out in either day or night. I can't wait to book my stay for next year at Sweet Winds!!!"

  • Exactly what we'd build.

    "We've been visiting St. John since the mid-80's and have rented on every part eventually purchasing a lot on Majestic Mile. Based on our experience we were looking for a villa with down island views above Coral Bay but without the extra drive around the bay since we knew we'd make daily trips to the North Shore beaches and Cruz Bay. We chose Villa Carolina for the huge views - Coral Bay and all the way around to Jost, the vanishing edge pool/patio, the outdoor stone showers and the layout which is ideal for 2 couples. It's on the ridgeline on the uphill side of Majestic Mile. By coincidence it's just east of our lot so we were also looking forward to getting design ideas and a sense of what our views would be. Sharon has done a magnificent job of designing and building a villa that is appropriate for the island terrain and nestled into the side of the ridge (unlike some of recent monstrosities). She took advantage of the views and used local and imported building materials like local "blue bitch" stone and thick Brazilian hardwood French doors. It is a long and difficult building process on St. John so we took notice of all the little details Sharon incorporated into the design, construction and landscaping. There is an auto-opening wrought iron gate at the entrance and although the uphill driveway starts steep the lot flattens and there is a parking pad for multiple Jeeps. In addition to the identical suites on either side of the main room there's a third full suite on the lower level for kids or a third couple. Given the perfect weather and the lack of bugs at this elevation we left the five, arched, double French doors that open to the pool/patio open all the time which makes the entire front of the villa open to the outdoors. The morning sun rising over the BVI floods into the bedrooms and at night we enjoyed the moon and the stars over the SFD Channel. This is a real second home for Sharon and she visits often which means that you aren't staying in a stripped down investment rental, it's Sharon's home and she has furnished and stocked it with the best of everything... Tommy Bahama themed furniture, top quality large and small appliances, tons of cookware and utensils, quality linens, the best patio furniture and all the extras like beach chairs, coolers, etc. Villa Carolina is a gem and Sharon is a delightful owner. We'll be back!"

  • Loved it!!!

    "The mountain views were amazing! My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this tranquil environment and it was a dream come true waking up to the breathtaking view of the mountains covered with lush vegetation through a large window. The large deck was very convenient to just sit in the morning taking in the splendor of the rising sun. The grill came in handy in cooking steak at night. We rented unit 4, it had everything we needed for two people, but there are several units to accomodate larger parties. The new beach chairs were great, thank you! The owner was very diligent explaining how to get there (follow the directions, they are there for a reason and to the point), provided a ton of useful info on grocery stores and was very responsive when we had questions. Overall, we had a wonderful time during our 3rd time on USVIs. The only thing we would change is renting a jeep instead of a small 4 door car that time, the roads can be steep and bumpy in this part of the island."

  • Wonderful little villa

    "I don't even know where to start expressing my love for this place. Blue Wrasse is a wonderful little villa with a breathtaking view of Coral Bay and beyond. Getting your Jeep into the driveway is a little hairy (though the road to the house is really nice for this part of the island!), and getting down all those stairs can be a little scary, but once you reach the house it's so worth it. The screened front porch is a great place to relax with a drink, the screened bathroom is unlike anything ever, the compact living space has all you need--a full kitchen, comfortable couch, WiFi, and the bedroom downstairs is spacious with a large dresser and bed. Sunrises are awesome here! My only criticism goes to VRBO: we had some issues getting the instructions for check-in and check-out--the VRBO app is confusing and it's promotion is spam-like, so we didn't regard it very seriously until we learned it was supposed to have all of the information we needed on getting to Blue Wrasse, finding the house key, et cetera. VRBO needs to clean up this app and promote it more clearly, especially to first time travelers like us! Fortunately the on-island managers went above and beyond by calling us before we arrived and meeting us in Coral Bay to show us to the house and how to get in. We would have been lost without them! The owner was also very helpful in providing the instructions himself when he learned we didn't get them through VRBO. Blue Wrasse is the best for couples on a budget looking to explore the beaches and trails of St. John--my husband and I truly loved our stay here!"
