  • Couldn't have had a better experience!

    "We had such a wonderful time in St John, and the lovely and relaxing Bambooshay Villa was a huge part of what made our trip great. The pictures don't lie- the views from the porch really are that breath taking! It was just the two of us for this trip and the villa was just the right size, although we are already planning a return trip and hope to bring our young son, who would have no trouble sleeping on the couch in the living room. (Even though the porch is high up, it's very safe and the front yard is flat and fenced- safe for kids.) The location was just right- convenient to town for groceries and evening cocktails, but secluded enough to feel like a private oasis. Tom and Melody, the property managers, were extremely helpful and made us feel very safe and comfortable. We had a small problem with the water cistern one evening, and Tom was there literally minutes after we called him to do the repairs. Our favorite beaches were Salt Pond and Haulover, both near Bambooshay- great snorkeling, and the hike to Ram Head from Salt Pond was a highlight of the trip. Another favorite part was falling asleep at night with the sound of tree frogs outside the bedroom window. Would definitely recommend this place to just about anyone."

  • Wow! Amazing! Fantastic!

    "We spent a fantastic week in Skyflower! Upon arriving on St. John and getting our rental Jeep for the week, we were met by Marc Miller, the property manager, who guided us from Cruz Bay over to Coral Bay and up Bordeaux Mountain to Skyflower. The villa was amazing. The view from 1000 feet up was even better in person. The cool wind/breeze kept us comfortable all of the time. When we would come back to the villa at the end of a fun-filled day on St. John, we would open the doors and windows, and it would be cool in just a few minutes. We never cooked a meal in the villa, but the coffee make worked great each morning, allowing us to enjoy our coffee from the deck, enjoying the wonderful views of St. John's east end, as well as the plethora of BVIs in the distance. The refigerator also kept our drinks and snacks cool. We also enjoyed being able to wash our beach and bath towels as well as our dirty clothes in the great washer and dryer located on the 2nd level. The outdoor shower was great! I really can only say wonderful things about Skyflower. It's obvious that the owners take great pride in this villa. We loved the electronic gate and the level, paved driveway that had plenty of space for multiple vehicles (even though we only had the one Jeep). We loved waking up each morining to watch the sun rise from our bed view. We also loved the hot tub in the evenings/nights to soothe any aches and pains we may have gotten from our active days hiking trails or snorkeling. Of course the week went by way too fast. If and when we ever come back to St. John, we will definitely be staying at Skyflower again."

  • The Reviews are accurate--great time at the Stonehouse!

    "My family of 5 enjoyed 10 nights at The Stonehouse. Excluding the 3rd BR downstairs and around the back, the place is fantastic! Were met at the ferry by a very nice lady from the company that manages the property who helped us grab our provisions at Star Market in Cruz Bay (you can order online and have it waiting for you if you plan well) and took us on the 20-minute drive to Coral Bay. The first step through the LR and kitchen to the view was actually breathtaking. The rotunda is great--2 great wicker couches, a hammock and a DR table we used often. This home is near the top of the mountain so we opened the doors that separate the rotunda and the kitchen/LR and the breeze was great--didn't need A/C. When we did, the top 2 BR's had good, working AC's. Small snafu with the hot water but owner had a plumber there the next day--very responsive and didn't affect our trip at all as the cold water isn't too cold to shower with. The two main BR entrances are off the rotunda. The third BR below was not secured from the wildlife (geckos!)--my teens were taping some screen seems so the geckos wouldn't get it but after a few days they waved the white flag and moved upstairs to the 2nd BR. We kicked my son out and he slept on the provided Aerobed which was fine. As in an earlier post, some attention to a few small things would make this place perfect. Coral Bay location is great--we rented a jeep from Amalie Car Rental at STT (recommend) and took it to a new beach almost every day. We made lunch the night before and packed a backpack cooler with beer, soda and water and we were off. We cooked dinner half the nights and used the gas grill (great) and stovetop--all the tools and pots/pans you need are there. They provide you with cloth napkins--I suggest you get some paper ones. The pool is larger than it appears on the site, and we used it almost everyday post-beach. We lit a few mosquito repellent-type sticks(Murphy's Mosquito Sticks on Amazon--worked great) during Happy Hour in the rotunda, but we over-prepared for the bug situation. Good breezes kept the bugs at bay or we were there during a period of low activity. Didn't run into many bugs at the beaches either. If you're looking for a great 2BR in a quieter area, the Stonehouse is fantastic and we'd rebook it in a heartbeat. Took one star away (would have taken only a 1/2 star away but the site doesn't allow that) for the third BR, but highly recommend it."

  • Sea Spirit - Dec 2014

    "My wife and I stayed at the Sea Spirit in Dec 2014. It is as described in other reviews. The view from the deck in all directions is breathtaking. It is close to outstanding snorkeling locations and the restaurants of Coral Bay. However, the most outstanding feature is the deck. Sea Spirit is extremely well stock with everything needed for a great vacation. Do go prepared for noseeums and a few mosquitos. Both Terry and Olivier were great to work with and a great source for St John advice."
