"Miles Away far exceeded our expectations. Similar to what other reviewers say, the actual home is even nicer than the pictures indicate (as if this is even possible!!). My husband and I stayed at Miles Away with our 3 small children (9, 7, 3). It was a perfect home for us. Private, open/fluid space, and beautifully decorated. The private wrap around porch has sweeping, unobstructed views of the ocean. The pool is pristine and very relaxing. The bedrooms are spacious and gorgeous. The extra twin cot was also very helpful for us. The kitchen is fully equipped with every imaginable appliance and grill is top notch. Because we have small children, it was easier to make meals and eat in the house rather than going out. Marc, the property manager is responsive and helpful. I love Miles Away and cannot wait to return!"

"We were a group of four couples and rented White Cottage thru Destination St John. We could not find many reviews and our only other stay in St John was a condo for two of our group at Grand Bay.
We were very pleased with our stay and the value we received. The villa is perfect for four couples to have privacy and common areas. It was clean, fully stocked and our only issue was the Internet which we could no log into. This was resolved with replacement of the router and a minor inconvenience.
The villa was well stocked with beach and bath towels, fully air-conditioned and kitchen fully equipped for cooking in. We enjoyed a full moon the week we were there and enjoyed our simple grilled dinners on the veranda more so than any restaurant we visited.
The villa was private and away from town a bit but easy to find and access. The only thing missing was a sunset view. The only thing I would suggest they add are black out drapes for sleeping in. The sunrise hits right into the east facing bedrooms very early. We spent our days at the various beaches and did not stay awake very late so we were awake early but could have been an issue if you want to sleep past 7:00 a.m."

"This is a great villa and you won't be disappointed if you rent it. My kids (teenagers) and I spent a week here and it was just right. James was very accommodating to our Thursday-Thursday schedule, and also rented us a sturdy 4-wheel drive car at a discounted rate. We took a cab from the airport in St. Thomas to Red Hook, caught the ferry over and James picked us up at the dock. He filled us on some good things to do while taking us straight to the house, only 10 min from the dock. The house has a nice main living area, great AV set-up, a kitchen with everything we needed and a wonderful westward view of Cruz Bay. It was very convenient to the town, as well as to highway 104 which goes right up to the centerline road, so it was quick to get to anywhere on the island. Each bedroom had a bathroom and the four of us were very comfortable. AC was available but with the breeze we never needed it. Many of the other reviews of other properties I read mentioned chickens and donkeys making all sorts of noise early in the morning, but I never heard them here. The only sounds were the occasional dog in the distance or a horn from a truck rounding the nearby bend in the road. The pool and hot tub were terrific, and great to return to after a day at the beach. The house had beach towels, beach chairs, coolers and a basket full of information brochures and magazines. Wi-fi was fast and worked everywhere in the house and around the pool. We typically would start the day with a run down the back roads, checking out the great views, followed by a jump in the pool, and then enjoying a smoothie from the blender as we sat on the porch. We then would set off on the days adventure. Upon return, we would relax in the hot tub before cooking our dinner or going out and then come home to watch some of their supplied movies or on Dish TV. Definitely consider eating in occasionally. There is a market about 5 min away from the property, but be prepared for sticker shock on food items in St. John. Everything except chicken and plantains is 2-3 times what you are probably used to paying, but it's still far cheaper than eating out. If I had to think of a negative on the property it would be that we did get some mosquitos occasionally in the house despite our best efforts, but that was only one 1-2 days when the wind was down. James was very responsive and took us back to the ferry right on time. I would highly recommend this place to anyone seeking a relaxing week in St. John."
