  • A Family Vacation

    "My family stayed at Hale Lani for 9 days in November 2014. It is a beautiful house and we enjoyed our stay very much. Destination St. John addressed any of our needs and Ben, the caretaker, handled any issues. There were 6 adults on our trip and our biggest issue, with regard to the house, would be who would get the lower bedroom. The bedroom is nicely appointed but it is far removed from the main house and whomever stays in it will feel separate from the other guests. The first couple of days on the Island it did rain and there were no umbrellas in the house to walk to and from the lower bedroom and the main living space. Therefore, two of our guests were virtually trapped down there during a downpour. I agree with another guest that the A/C also was not as efficient in that space. Ben said he was going to change it but never did. Lastly, the bed in the master bedroom was a king size due to placing two twin beds together. Which would have been fine but the twin beds were of different heights so that could make it a bit uncomfortable for snuggling. The other master bed was also two twins placed together but the beds were of the exact height causing no snuggling issues. Overall we loved the open air veranda and the pool was wonderful with plenty of lounge chairs to sit on. The gardens were beautiful and well maintained and the view spectacular. If the A/C were replaced in the lower bedroom (which it probably already was) and the bed replaced in the master...throw in an umbrella and we would definitely return for another visit."

  • Everything we dreamed of and more!!!!

    "From the moment we first arrived on the island, we instantly fell in love with St. John and everything it had to offer. Sinbad was great at meeting us at the barge dock and giving us a brief tour of the island and all the local hot spots. When we arrived at Meritage Cottage, we instantly fell in love all over again! The cottage was exactly as pictured on the website. We had our own private deck with breathtaking views of the mountains, ocean, tropical trees and amazing sunsets! We loved relaxing in the hot tub and watching the iguanas during the day and the frogs at night. The cottage is located in a nice part of the island. Renting a Jeep is a must for navigating the island. Our favorite beaches were Hawksnest and Water lemon Cay, especially for snorkeling. Such a variety of coral, fish, sting rays, turtles and more!!! We will definitely return to St.John and Meritage Cottage and are even considering for a destination wedding. St.John immediately captured our hearts... Whether you are looking for a remote, romantic getaway or an adventure, you will not be disappointed!!!"

  • Paradise found

    "I stayed here with 8 other friends for 4 nights. The accommodations were fantastic. Clean beds and baths. Decor was island shabby chic. You could tell the owner put a lot of time and heart into this place. The views! Words cannot describe the beauty that is Chocolate hole. The house is perched just high enough to get a full view of chocolate hole but just a few steps down to the ocean. The beach is rocky with some sand. You'll find an abundance of whelks and sea urchin. The whelks are edible. In fact they are an island delicacy. Watch out for those sea urchins though. I would absolutely recommend this home to all. If you're blessed enough to make it to St. John. This is the house to stay in."

  • The perfect home away from home

    "This villa has the perfect size, location and amenities for up to two couples or a family with a few children. The two master suites at opposite ends of the house all have direct access to the pool deck, yet provide desired privacy. The view from the pool overlooking Chocolate Hole couldn't have been better. The proximity to the North Shore beaches, restaurants, the ferry dock and grocery and liquor stores was very convenient - far better than when we stayed previously in Coral Bay area. The well provisioned home was clean and well cared for. The management group we booked through (Destination St. John) was very responsive to our questions. Having the entire house air conditioned was a definite plus. Thanks for our wonderful stay in paradise!"
