"We stayed at the fantastic Riley’s Retreat July 2015, with a total of 8 in our party -- 2 adults and 6 children (12-20 years old). This beautiful villa is the perfect vacation home for families with children. The owners were so gracious and accommodating, answering our many questions about the house and things to do -- down to the smallest detail, like which supermarkets to go to on the island. The house was super comfortable, beautifully appointed and had literally everything we needed for our week’s stay. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, spices, platters, toaster, coffee maker -- everything we needed to prepare meals for our party of 8. We enjoyed wonderful days at the various beautiful beaches around the island and some nice hiking. After our long, fun days, we retreated back to the villa to enjoy the deck with its scenic views, lovely sunsets, beautiful pool, hot tub and pool table. The villa’s caretaker, Austin, was so pleasant and was there if we had any questions. Austin’s restaurant/bar in Cruz Bay (Castaway’s) was great for delicious burgers (try the donut burger!) and drinks for the adults – all at a reasonable prices. We weren’t sure about the villa being located only 1.5 miles from Cruz Bay, but this worked out great for us and proved to be very convenient for dining, shopping and supermarket runs. We read a few reviews prior to arrival about traffic noise from Centerline Ave. and roosters. We barely heard any street noise (the home is on a hillside), and the roosters didn’t wake us (we heard roosters all around the island). The common areas were cooled by nice breeze from the windows and ceiling fans, which were also in the bedrooms, although we did turn on the A/C in the bedrooms for sleeping. We were never hot in the home even though it was the middle of July. We had a wonderful and easy experience and would highly recommend Riley’s Retreat. We would definitely stay at Riley’s Retreat again in the future."

"An unforgettable once in a lifetime vacation, this is the hub from which you can do anything in St John. It starts with the wrap around deck with a view of Cruz Bay and beyond; the best place for that morning coffee. The condo is walking distance to many of the Cruz Bay attractions and is an easy drive to those popular beaches & snorkeling. This Grande Bay Condo is furnished and equipped immaculately; from the well thought out decorating to the many upgrades not common in many units similarly priced. The unit was spotless, well equipped and appointed kitchen; down to those spices you forgot from grocery shopping. Also it had every thing need to adventure to the beach and wash & dry those dirty things afterword.
I would recommend this Grand Bay location to any of my friends, a great time was had by all."

"Perfect cottage for a getaway! Location is perfect -- you feel far away but you are really just minutes from the stores and restaurants of laid back Coral Bay. Cruz Bay is just over the island which the locals think is SO FAR but compared to my daily commute it's nothing :)
Coffee with the iguanas in the trees off the deck each morning was a treat!
It's a very open floor plan which is great for air flow, but just be aware that bathroom/bedroom are connected if you are someone who wants a lot of privacy :)"
