"My wife & I, in addition to another couple, just returned from our trip to St John. I had never booked a home through VRBO before and we had never been to the USVI or the Caribbean, let alone to St John. I can honestly say that looking back; I would not change a thing. We booked Skyflower for multiple reasons and I am happy to report that it did not disappoint. From the amazing views, to the beautiful home, to the expansive decks; I fully expect that we will be back and when we do, I no longer need to look for another house to rent. This pleasant experience began when I first contacted the property manager through VRBO to inquire about renting Skyflower for a week. The property manager answered all of our questions and made the process of reserving this home very easy and painless. Since this was my first time renting a home through VRBO, I was a bit nervous about it too, but working with the property manager set me right at ease. His communications were very quick and helpful. When we finally arrived in St John, he met us in town, took us to the house, and was available our entire stay if needed. Once we got to the house, the views took our breath away; you can see quite a bit from this elevation. We all loved the layout of the home too. It provided both couples with great places to gather in the main living area or on the deck, but it also provided ample privacy in the separate master bedroom and in the second master suite on the lower level. This property would work well for a family with a couple of children too. I can only sing praises to Skyflower and our experience staying here. It was very clean, well designed, and well decorated too. It was also great to have access to a washer and dryer during our stay to wash bath towels & beach towels. If you decided to book this home, you will not regret it! My only suggestion would be to pack a few warm clothes in addition to your shorts and flip flops; it can get a bit chilly at night, especially with the breeze on top of Bordeaux Mountain. Personally, I was fine in a t-shirt and shorts, but my wife would usually throw on a light sweater at night along with a pair of sweat pants. Of course, you could always just hop in the hot tub too if you prefer!"

"Great cottage for our family of four (two children ages 10 & 12). It is in a peaceful and quiet location. We slept like babies, listening to the sound of waves and nature. The owners supply everything besides food, including sheets, bath towels, beach towels, kitchen supplies. The beds all have soft mattress covers under the sheets. There is a clothes line to hang wet clothes and towels. The caretaker is easily reachable by telephone. The house is not in the middle of the tourist areas, and is a little off the beaten path. However, the island is small enough that it can be crossed in 20 minutes. We spent our days going to different north shore beaches, then happily returned to the cottage. There are very good restaurants nearby, and several food stores. The owners are very responsive and accommodating. In short, we have nothing negative to say and had a fabulous time."

"LOVED our stay at this beautiful villa. Sometimes with VRBO homes, the photos outshine the reality…it’s the opposite with this house. Some of its advantages:
➢ The setting. Pure wow.
➢ The bedrooms. Many times with 3 bedroom rentals, one will be great and other 2 are very so-so. But each one of the bedrooms had terrific views, breezes, and their own bathrooms.
➢ The breeze. This was the best. It’s so great to be in a home that can take advantage of natural cool breezes and light. It was perfectly designed for island living.
➢ The town. Coral Bay is a great place.
➢ The caretakers. Buck is a caretaker right out of Central Casting…30 years spent sailing around the world before settling down in Coral Bay. A very helpful fellow.
Several people have remarked on the drive up and I understand where they’re coming from. But my 2 teenagers loved the experience and the drive became part of the adventure.
Highly recommended and we are already dreaming of a 2nd visit."

"My husband, my 7-year-old son and I spent a spectacular week in St. John at Sunrise Villa. We could not have asked for a more lovely getaway. The view is positively breathtaking. The nocturnal jungle sounds, the nightly storms and morning cloud shows, and even the drive up (and down!) the mountain road all made for a fun and beautiful family adventure. Coral Bay is charming and beautiful. The beaches were fabulous. The caretaker was quickly and consistently responsive to our queries. The owner called us mid week to check in and make a beach recommendation. That was a really lovely gesture. We would highly recommend this gorgeous home to those who are in for the challenge of the drive. It is more than worth-it! Another bonus: being so high in elevation, we sustained very few mosquito bites with the constant trade winds. We will return and we would love to stay at Sunrise Villa again when we do!
P.S. SAVE CORAL BAY!!"
