  • The best way to celebrate 10 years of wedding bliss

    "My husband and I stayed at the Balance Villa 8/16-8/21. We cannot begin to express what a glorious time we had. First of all, we arrived at Cruz Bay via ferry where we were greeted by Marilyn from Cimarron mgnt company. She was very friendly and informative. We followed her in our rented jeep through the steep and winding roads of St. John to the Balance Villa located in Fish Bay. The drive was not bad maybe only 10-15 minutes from Cruz Bay. I was on Island time so I did not pay attention. Once we arrived at the Villa we were in awe. The villa is more beautiful in person! It was so clean, and had everything we needed to make our vacation a pleasant one. We stayed in the upstairs master bedroom since it had the better view of Fish Bay. The location of the villa was so quiet, you could hear the waves breaking off in the distance by Ditleff Point. Husband and I slept like babies. Also, having a/c in the bedrooms was a plus. We kept the windows and screened doors open in the living area, making the room temperature pleasant due to no a/c. The tropical landscaping around the villa was beautiful and it sure gave you a sense of privacy. Iguanas, lizards, geckos, hummingbirds, and even a tarantula all made their presence known. Another highlight of the villa were the outdoor showers. Exhilarating! This marked our 3rd trip to the island of St. John and first time staying in a private villa. On this trip we were able to explore and relax on 8 different beaches (Trunk, Hawksnest, Solomon, Francis, Maho, Leinster, Great Lameshur, and Denis). Francis Bay is our new favorite! Balance villa provided beach chairs and coolers which was just perfect! We indulged in great food from restaurants such as Cruz Bay Landing, The Beach Bar, Jake's (the best breakfast in our opinion), Sam & Jack's Deli, Aqua Bistro (Coral Bay area), Driftwood David's. We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary dinner at ZoZo's at the Caneel Bay Resort. Highly recommend! In conclusion, I want to thank Marc & Anne for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home. This trip was truly one of the best my husband and I have ever had. We could not have asked for a more perfect one. We hope to visit St. John again in the near future."

  • BEST condo in Cruz Bay!

    "Stop looking – this is the most perfect condo rental on St John – and if you need a bit more or less space, just ask – they have a few different models. As others have stated, the condo is just as pictured in the photos – everything is perfect for your stay on St John. The location is great –you can walk to EVERYTHING in town in minutes. The north shore beaches are just a 10-20 minute scenic drive. The condo is well equipped with all of the supplies you might need – extra toiletries, sunscreen, beach toys/chairs, etc. We brought our own snorkel gear but after some equipment failures, it was so nice to be able to just borrow the snorkel/fins/mask from the condo vs worry about spending our vacation time shopping for gear or deal with renting some. The entire rental process (booking condo/paying for it/check –in/check-out) was seamless and so easy. The owners and management company were very responsive and helpful with the couple questions we asked. We look forward to our next trip to St John and when we go, we most definitely plan to stay here again."

  • Perfect Place to Stay in St. John

    "This is our third time to visit St. John and all 3 times we have stayed at one of the owner's properties. We decided to stay in the cottage this time as it is closer to Cruz Bay and we aren't fans of driving on St. John at night. The cottage was EXCELLENT! It was extremely clean and well maintained. Lovely high quality linens and a well equipped kitchen. There are screened windows on all four sides to let in all the tropical breezes along with a ceiling fan in each room. In the evening, we sat on the large porch and watched the cruise ships make their way around the island. In the mornings, we sat on our porch, had breakfast, and watched the birds, an occasional iguana walk by as we enjoyed the peaceful, beautiful surroundings. This cottage met all of our needs and more importantly all of our wants! Easy to park, a central location for all the activities we were busy doing, and staying there made us feel like we were indeed on vacation. This is my perfect vacation home."

  • Amazing views

    "I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone with a larger party. Also Seaview Homes and Mark's team did a fantastic job with all of the logistics to get us up to our villa and settled in."
