"My husband and I were ready for a much needed vacation. We are great "trip-takers," but a relaxing vacation is not our typical way to travel...although after this lovely get-away, it may be more often! I was looking for a great view, a unique spot, a large room to be able to settle into and enjoy, a pool for after the beach, a kitchenette for food & drinks so that we didn't have to go out for each meal. The White Seagull was perfect. I wasn't too enticed by the decor upon my first research, but found out later from the lovely Jacqueline that much of the decor is family heirlooms. The antiques and flair gave the room that much more warmth. Also, although Jacqueline lives on the property, we only saw her twice. She was so welcoming and genuinely happy to share her space, but we almost felt like we were the only ones there - very private. We went from bay to bay each day snorkeling, swimming with turtles and enjoying the beautiful water. We went out twice with Ocean Runner Boat Rentals, and had a wonderful time! Hung out a lot at the High Tide too - tasty food and good service. Also the X Bar for a cozy place away. More bays to enjoy, fish to swim with, and blue waters sooth the soul. We'll be back!"

"I came here with my family and couldn't have been more pleased with this beautiful island and beautiful resort. The villa was clean and spacious with gorgeous views. I loved that we could cook a lot of our meals in the kitchen and eat on the patio together.
The staff at this resort is top notch. They accommodate any need you have and always have a smile on their face.
We really enjoyed going to the pool and relaxing with delicious drinks that the pool bar offered. Each day there were fun activities for the kids to do. Mine especially loved frosting, decorating and eating their own cupcakes. There are also fun games for adults at the pool where you can win free drinks, food etc. My kids loved walking up and down the beach, collecting shells and looking for sting rays, crabs and fish that we spotted almost daily in the water.
There are so many fun things to do on the island. We did a snorkel trip where we spent the day snorkeling with sea turtles and all kinds of fish. We also rented a car and was able to explore the island and visit many beaches. Trunk Bay is a must. I loved going into town and visiting the shops and delicious restaurants. Everyone around is so friendly, you feel right at home.
We had such an amazing time! None of us wanted to leave. We can't wait to go back again some day."

"My family and spent my birthday week in this magnificent house. This home is incredible. We have traveled to a lot of places, but this is by far the most beautiful home ever. The view, the interior decorating, every room has so many unique touches, it is truly breathtaking. We cannot wait to return. Don, you were so accommodating and helpful with making our week, the perfect vacation. Thank you so much for sharing this palace with us. We had the time of our lives."

"String of Pearls was absolutely perfect for our honeymoon!! Both my husband and I had been to St. John before so we really appreciated all of the great benefits that this property provided. The view was amazing, and the location couldn't have been better! We were secluded but still close to everything we wanted to do. So many great attractions are within a 10 minute drive! Perfect size for the two of us, very well maintained and decorated, and the hot tub and hammock were great! BJ is such a sweet host! She never bothered us, but made sure that we were well taken care of during our stay. We ran into a couple of issues with the water in the house because of a drought on the island (by the way, everyone on the island was having issues with the drought, please keep in mind), however BJ went above and beyond to continue to make our stay as enjoyable as possible! We're both so appreciative of the hospitality; everything was truly wonderful! We hope to be back soon! We hated to leave! :)"
