"We stayed at Captain's View for 14 glorious days in Feb 2015! This is our second visit to St. John, third rental, and we will never stay anywhere else from now on! This is it! We rented a Jeep at STT and got a bulk of our groceries before we left St. Thomas, but the location is so close to the center of town that you wouldn't need to. In fact, the tenants who stayed in the lower unit did not. Dolphin market is less than a 5 minute walk away. The location is close enough to town, yet far enough away from all the activity that it felt safe and it was surprisingly quiet! The unit was very well stocked from a large stock of towels, beach chair, flash lights, coolers, grill, ipod/iphone speaker hook up (we used pandora the whole time), and binoculars (which provided hours of harbor watching entertainment), and a perfectly timed mid-stay maid service. The two bedrooms were very spaceous and the a/c units were perfect! I had read other reivews that the a/c units weren't sufficent, but they actually worked great for us. The beds were firm and very comfy (my husband is a mattress stickler and he approved!). We ate breakfast and dinner on the covered porch everyday. We saved all our shopping bags and bagged the ice from the ice maker, packed fresh fruit, sandwiches, snacks, and beers in the cooler for a full day of adventures everyday. When we returned to Captain's View, we turned on the a/c in the bedrooms, jumped in the pool, and enjoyed cooking in the open kitchen (didn't feel secluded from the rest), grilling and dining with a fantastic view on the covered patio. Lastly, the service was outstanding! There was a window that didn't shut and I wanted to inform them in the beginning so they didn't think we broke it, and the next day they were ready to send someone out. We had a couple old broken beach chairs and they replaced them the next morning. Lastly, we forgot a phone at the house and the next day, they emailed to say they found it and were going to send it. Supurb!"
