Recent Johns Folly reviews

  • Spectacular views and lots of room

    "This is a beautiful home with lots of room. Plenty of outdoor deck space. Everything was as portrayed on the website. The property was clean and well maintained. The Concordia Cafe is a short walk away and offers good food and entertainment. Walking distance to Salt Pond Bay. We would definitely stay there again."

  • Spacious and clean, on the quiet (best) side of the island.

    "This was our second trip to St. John and we knew we wanted to be on the east side of the island. It is quieter, has more secluded beaches, better snorkeling and the bays have more shelter from the waves typical of the north shore. We stayed in the larger Little Lagoon South and were very pleased. It was clean, very large with a fully furnished kitchen and large bathroom. The bedroom offered air conditioning at night which was great to at least initially chill down the room. The cable tv and wifi were very reliable and a nice perk. Ernest and Donna were great hosts - they gave us complete privacy but were available if we needed anything. One huge plus over many of the other places we had stayed or visited was the beach road location. It was pretty nice not to have to wind your way up or down a mountain driveway every time you wanted to head out - it was very easy to come home after a long day at the beach and not have to spin your tires up the mountain. We are big fans of the island, particularly the beaches both south and east of Coral Bay and this was a great location for getting to either - would definitely stay here again!"

  • The Perfect Getaway!

    "Surf Sound Cottage is the perfect rustic getaway if you are looking for peace and tranquility. Susan is a pleasure to work with and offers exceptional details to make the most of your time on the island. The house is charming, well taken care of and spacious for 2. The views are spectacular and the breezes most welcoming. For August we actually felt chilly with the 20 mph winds. Most of our time was spent outside of the house enjoying the sights and sounds of the island and as we traveled around we were delighted to know that the Johns Foley area or East End was the nicest and most relaxing of areas to be in and if you are looking for fewer crowds & added peacefulness you will find it over here. Having a Jeep is a must, not just to navigate the driveway but the terrain of the island as a whole. It will take your further and deeper into the uncharted off road tracks and well worth the spend. Just cool breezes, tranquility and the sound of the crashing waves with the occasional rooster for added ambiance is what you will experience here, this is a nature lover’s space… I’m particular to vbo homes when travelling and Susan does a great job of representing her lovely cottage. You won’t be disappointed if you are looking for something unpretentious, relaxing and out of the way- you will find here. Let’s talk accommodations because that really important to know…. the space is super clean. :-) The kitchen is well stocked, but prices at the market make for dining out to be easier on the wallet. If you’re looking to watch TV on your vacation, you might as well pick up a book, that’s not the focus here. The Bed is comfy but unlike the couch, not so much… the bathroom is really nice- some might think that’s important…lol . We actually opened up the house and enjoyed the natural sounds and breezes that kept us cool all through the night. The open patio out front was my most favorite space to chill. All and all I HIGHLY recommend Surf Sound Cottage and would come back in a heartbeat when we journey to this way again…you won’t find a lovelier hostess and more delightful space for the value. Thank you Susan, for sharing your perfect slice of paradise with us, we will cherish the memories always. Sincerely, Brett & Elizabeth C."

  • Words can't explain how perfect this villa is

    "My family traveled to St. John to celebrate our parents 40th anniversary. In total we were 9 adults and 1 toddler. Ocean Palm Villa was the perfect setting for our stay. I planned the whole trip and when we arrived everyone was taken back by the beauty and grandeur of the villa saying the pictures and video do not do it justice. The layout is everything you could ask for when vacationing with family...private space and joint space! It was so convenient to have the laundry room just down the stairs. The villa has everything you need from beach chairs for your day trips to a brand new bbq on the amazing patio. The sunrise and views all day are breathtaking and you just feel completely relaxed from the moment you wake up till you lay down in the comfortable beds. The outdoor showers were a treat..especially when you hear and see 15 goats in the driveway! Ocean Palm is in a convenient location as there is a store just a 5 minute drive and several awesome restaurants within 10-15 minutes driving. There is also a calm beach nearby and once you know the roads, the north shore is not that far or difficult to get to and believe me you want to get there!! We have already recommended this villa to other family and friends. We never once felt cramped or like we were on top of eachother. The outdoor speakers, comfortable seating inside and out, spectacular infinity pool all made for a wonderful stay. We had a chef come one night and grilled a few other nights. Christine and Kristen from St. John Ultimate Villas were so helpful and after our arrival did our provisioning (as we thought we could shop on arrival...just provision!). TWO THUMBS UP!!"
