"A true testomony of our love of Andura was that we came back, as we had a flawless vacation here last year. We did notice some differences however which we did not expect based upon the pricey,yet competitive, rate of such luxury. This year the bronze wall fountain did not function and was not repaired during our stay. Seems like a little issue unless you had experienced the hundreds of hummingbirds using it as their tropical bar last year. We came in on Super Bowl Sunday and alas none of the televisions worked. Of course you may also be thinking that we were on vacation, who needs TV? It would have nice to have at least been able to watch the big game. The TV / satellite issue was partially resolved mid-week after two calls so we could finally get music in the great room. To this day we are unable to switch it to the gazebo/ pool area speakers. One of our party is a a wonderful amateur chef. He delights in using what we have on hand to create delectable dishes. But alas, the beautiful commercial gas range had electronic sparking issues all week and did not appear to have been cleaned in quite some time. (Resulting in stained clothes.) Light fixtures need cleaning outside and light bulbs need to be replaced. All this being said we know is genuinely minor but... We have grown to expect clean, properly functioning facilities, especially if we are willing to pay the price. If we were the owners we would want to know these things and would drill down to whose resposility it is to keep it at 100%. We love this place and do not want to see it decline. Just sayin'."

"My husband and i stayed for a week in the summer of 2013 and enjoyed it very much.
landing in St. Thomas, getting supplies, taking a ferry and driving across St. John was a long way to go to get to the villa but well worth it. The outdoor shower is delicious, the beach is beautiful and the quiet serenity of the villa is just the thing we were looking for. I've stayed in many villas in the Caribbean, mainly St. Barts and this time wanted to try something new and my researched led me to the Retreat. It was an excellent choice for us. Thank you."

"What a beautiful location! We loved the natural beauty, the quiet, and the laid-back vibe. The donkeys, chickens, sheep and goats were just another aspect of the away-from-it-all charm of this place. Snorkeling in Hansen Bay was the best!
Jay gave us lots of helpful advice, and the cottage was comfortable and nicely decorated.
Thanks again for sharing your little piece of paradise with us."

"If you are looking for astounding beauty, peace & tranquility. rest & relaxation, search no more. From the moment we arrived at this charming cottage it was nirvana. The cottage has everything you can want or need. It was extremely difficult having to leave this place. The view is outstanding & the breeze that goes with it. Privacy galore. Roads are pretty intense but you do get used to them. The beaches on St. John are fabulous. Caretakers Catherine & Clark are very nice people. When we return to St. John this is the ONLY place we will look to stay. Book it!"
