"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! :)"

"Our family of 12, grandparents, children, spouses, and grandchildren settled into the house very quickly. We were taken back by the beautiful view from the balcony off the back of the house. The view was spectacular. We spent many evenings sitting outside enjoying the island breeze and view. The house was well laid out and allowed us room to spread out. The drive up to house was steep and the switchbacks took us a couple trips to master, but were not difficult. We traveled to a number of beaches, St Thomas to sightsee and shop, and dined at local restaurants. We also found the kitchen more than adequate for a large family and the dining room wonderful for family meals. The beach chairs and towels were very welcome for beach going. We had a few minor problems with the house, but the property manager had maintenance people there quickly so the problems were of little bother. The property manager was very helpful in showing us details of the house operation and provided a detailed book of activities, instructions, and helpful hints. Very well thought out and a welcome indeed. The owners were very nice and corresponded with us by email prior to our arrival answering questions and making suggestions to guide our stay. We would not have known what to bring or what was available locally had they not been so gracious.
This was a trip that will be remembered for many years by young and old. We will be back."

"We recently celebrated our son's college graduation. He selected the vacation spot and wanted to return to Adeste.
The owners welcomed us back and made sure his celebration choice was all he desired!
Mornings at Adeste were peaceful with amazing views of quiet Coral bay and Hurricane hole.
Access to the best beaches on the island were easy and close.
Several good dining choices wee close and not crowded. Picnic lunches from pickles, And access to boat rentals was just at the bottom of the hill near skinny legs.
We loved the quiet evenings playing cards and enjoying Cruzan!
Adeste is a peaceful part of paradise!"

"We had a lovely stay at Christmas Cottage. It was great to spend so much time outside cooking and relaxing. The cottage was well equipped, and Marcia, the owner, was very helpful when we got a flat tire driving up the dirt road from the cottage. St John was beautiful too with so many amazing beaches."
