"My husband & I were blessed to have spent our honeymoon at Balance. The previous reviews give you an idea of what to expect but, words really don't do it justice! The villa is everything you could ever dream of and is equipped for any need that you may have. Waking up to the view of Fish Bay was mesmerizing! The location was great since you have such privacy yet it's only 15 minutes to town. Thank you so much Marc and Ann for sharing your beautiful villa with us. We can't wait to return to Balance and we highly recommend this villa."

"This cottage is tucked away behind some tall trees uphill from Fish Bay and so it is very relaxing and quiet. The cottage had everything we needed and could have wanted. It is so nice that the hosts provided beach chairs, an ice chest and noodles to take to the beaches. If you stay here, you may want to consider renting a car on St. Thomas, purchasing bulk items at the Tutu mall or Food Center on St. Thomas and taking the car ferry over. The Starfish market on St. John, which is along the road to the cottage, also has a fine selection of food. After spending the day at the beach or hiking, happy hour at Joe's Rum Bar or another place in Cruz Bay or in Coral Bay, driving out to the cottage (10 minutes or so from Cruz Bay) and coming home to such a comfortable, quiet place is the perfect ending to a perfect day! And then, be sure to spend some time on the patio star gazing. We don't think we have ever seen so many stars. Truly amazing!!!"

Amazing view and very private - very responsive host!
"We do not typically book vacation rentals but decided to give this a shot for our honeymoon. It turned out great. The suite is extremely private, and has a beautiful view overlooking a bay in St. John. The property manager meets you when you arrive on the island and escorts you directly to the villa so you aren't stuck finding your way, and gets you settled in. You feel like you are really in your own private space, completely away from the commercial parts of the island, all of which are still easily accessible by jeep (and only jeep!). Michael (the owner) is extremely responsive to your needs (we had a few minor issues during our stay, all of which were quickly resolved). The property manager is also extremely responsive and friendly. We would certainly come back and stay here again."

"My boyfriend and I rented Sol Cottage for our first trip to St. John. The cottage was as pictured: neat and cozy. No kitchen but a grill and fridge-- pretty much what we needed for beach snacks and keeping food bug free. We were greeted by the owner's sweet little dog each day, and the owner was friendly and informative but also gave us plenty of privacy. The cottage is conveniently located to several beaches. The owner, Marc, provided beach chairs and a cooler, coffee pot for morning brew. There's an AC in the loft bedroom but we never needed it. The cottage gets nice cross-wind breezes and the sound of the palm trees outside the windows is awesome. We loved the outdoor shower too! A great experience. We will definitely return."
