  • Hands down the best, it will make you want to move!!

    "My wife and I stayed at Pure Joy cottage for our honeymoon in september, and my goodness what an amazing experience it was. The cottage is secluded and quit with the most generous, helpful, and accommodating owner. The porch looks out onto the ocean with a beautiful view of Cruz Bay with st. Thomas and some other small isands in perfect view; making every morning the best you will have. We drank coffee on the porch every morning then packed lunch for the day. the cottage is loaded with brooks and guides to the island, with the most amazing beaches and snorkeling, USE THEM and you can find just about anything you want, from sharks too sea turtles we saw it all. There is a really nice full kitchen, which we used alot due to the fact the fish verity on the island you can buy at the groceries, offers a fun cooking experience. The cottage is conveniently 3 minutes out of the town Great Cruz bay which is the biggest on the island, filled with amazing restaurants, fun little bars, and amazing locals that welcome and guide you in anyway they can. This cottage in perticular made our vacation, it is everything you need and more, with an amazing bed that makes you sleep in, a beautiful bathroom with a very large shower (with great water pressure may I add better then any hotel! We know it matters) and did I mention the HOTTUB! which by the way has the same amazing view as it is on the porch. If you love to relax and do it on your own do what we did, though it was a chance , it was well worth taking we went in so called "hurricane season" or down season, some restaurants were closed, but we had two or three days at Jumbie bay and francis bay that we had the beach to ourselves.. literally the only people it's a truly unique experience that offered the opportunity to really take it all in. Beautiful weather the entire trip. Pure Joy has it all and ymis sure to blow yoyr expections out of the water.We have suggested this to everyone we know and will continue to go to Pure Joy for the rest of our lives , as that's what this place is... Pure Joy P.s. say hello to the iguanas in the trees the porch over looks! They are always an entertaining bunch to watch in the morning with your coffee. NOW GOO RELAX AND HAVE SOME FUN !!"

  • The Only Thing Wrong Is ---- You Have To Leave Eventually.

    "My wife and I, along with our son, daughter-in-law and 2 y/o grandson spent a week relaxing in luxury and making family memories at this delightful villa. Chez Shell exceeded all our expectations. Everything was the highest quality; in excellent working order; fully equipped; and the owners provided instant personal attention to assist in any way. We could not recommend Chez Shell more highly."

  • Best Experience Ever!

    "My husband, myself and our 2 boys(5 & 2 1/2) stayed at Hummingbird's SEAcret for 10 days in February 2014. In the past we have rented three other homes on the island (never before in one of Lisa's management homes). While all of them were very nice, Hummingbird was hands down the best experence. Kate (Lisa's helper) picked us up at the ferry dock. She was so warm and welcoming, full of great information, and when we arrived at the house we were greeted with crackers, cheese, beer and wine. After traveling 10 long hours w/2 small children, we were beyond thrilled! From then on it just kept getting better. The house was perfect. The open, single building, ranch style allowed us to lounge by the pool while the kids watched cartoons or played in the pool. Speaking of the pool, it was perfect; heated and clean with outstanding views! You'd think in such a warm place you wouldn't need a heated pool. However when your kids want you to go in with them 1st thing in the a.m. and the last thing before bed, the heat makes it so much more enjoyable. The location was great, close to town and grocery store. Also, unlike other homes we've rented we never once had to use air conditioning, the house was always airy comfortable. We rented strollers and took walks every morning which turned out to be a highlight of the trip for both my husband and I. The roads were paved and the hills were steep and there were continuous breathtaking views. The house was clean, bright, and stocked with all the little things you need a bit of but you can only purchase in large quantity...coffee filters, dishwasher detergent, dish soap, sponges etc...to sum it up: we will use Lisa's co. from now on, and we can't wait to go back to HUMMINGBIRD'S SEAcret!"

  • Splendid Trip!

    "We simply had the most wonderful vacation! The entire family didn’t want to come home:( The house was everything we expected and beyond. It was the most relaxing vacation and that says a lot with a 16, 13, and 10 year old! We are already talking about when our next trip is back to St. John."
