"My wife and I arrived in St John via the ferry on May 23rd. We were promptly greeted at the dock by John who then escorted us to the villa. He took the time to show us the property's nuances and was then helpful in providing answers to our questions regarding dining and tour options.
From the website photos we knew that the villa was beautiful.... but the pictures fall short of the ambiance and beauty that you will experience. While the villa is located far enough from town providing an atmosphere of peaceful tranquility, it is conveniently located close to the shopping and dining in Cruz Bay. We enjoyed the evening sunsets over Great Cruz Bay and the twinkling lights of St. Thomas once the sun has set for the evening
The quietness of the night under the stars is very relaxing.
One of the great features that this home offers is multiple rooms and decks to enjoy both gorgeous ocean/harbor views and garden views regardless of where you might be in the property. I personally enjoyed my early morning coffee on the back deck while feeding the Sugar Birds. Later after breakfast, I enjoyed the solitude of the infinity pool with my wife.
Only once during our stay did we need assistance (with providing additional beach towels) which were promptly and cheerfully delivered. We enjoyed our day at the beach using the beach chairs, towels and cooler which is provided.
The kitchen is well appointed with new high quality appliances. We ate breakfast on the deck three mornings and we used the grill once to reheat the pizza left over from the night before. (and...Yes the pizza was better the 2nd day)
I would highly recommend this property. I will strongly consider returning at a future date."

"Our family of 4, including 2 teenagers, loved this home and is already planning to stay here again during our next trip to St. John. The home overlooks Great Cruz Bay and is private, yet not so secluded that you feel isolated. When you enter the front door, you immediately are awed by the pool and luxury furnishings that create comfortable spaces to relax with great views from any location. The king master bedroom includes a sunroom with a daybed and armchair with ottoman, which are perfect for the morning cup of coffee. The outdoor master shower is private, with visiting hummingbirds and iguanas hanging out in the flowering tree overhead. The first queen bedroom is on the opposite side of the house, with the other outdoor shower and another sunroom furnished with comfortable seating to enjoy the views of St. Thomas and Great Cruz Bay. The third bedroom, also a queen suite, is located downstairs and is accessible from a spiral staircase from the back patio or by an outdoor path just by the front door. My 14 year-old daughter loved her "apartment" down there, but it would not be suitable as a bedroom for younger children unless there was an adult with them because it's not accessible from inside the house. This bedroom was also beautifully furnished with a large indoor shower as well as a sitting room with a partial view of the bay.
The back patio with its lounge chairs and hot tub were where we spent most of our evenings. There were times when we could hear the music from the Westin nearby, and we loved it because we could enjoy it but it wasn't so loud as to be annoying. When we wanted our own music, the SONOS system provided access to any kind of music we wanted. This was something we used every day and found to add a nice perk to the home that we hadn't realized we would have.
The indoor pool was amazing. The water was cool, not cold, and felt great after a day of exploring or as a cool-off while cooking dinner in the kitchen a few feet away. It's about 5 1/2 feet deep at it's deepest, so you would need to keep an eye on younger children because it's very enticing!
Each bedroom has AC with a remote control. The great room and kitchen are not air conditioned, but were comfortable as long as you are not cooking. That's when the indoor pool was nice! The ceiling fans and airflow from the screened doors across the front and back of the house kept the temperature very comfortable.
Thank you, Paula and Skip! We hope to be back!"

"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."

"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!"
