Recent USVI/St. John reviews

  • It was great

    "This really is a terrific place to stay at a terrific price. The cottage was just as advertised clean and private about a mile or two from town. I worried that with four adults it would be too small but it worked out fine. There is a VCR you might wan to bring a few DVD's, there are lots of little things that make the trip nicer beach towels, drink coolers, beach chairs...all those are really nice extras.The deck is a lovely place to start and end your day. You do need a car, although it is close to town the roads are too narrow to walk but cabs are easy to get if you want to go that route. When we go back to St John we will defintely stay at Starfish again."

  • Beyond Our Expectations. Wonderful!

    "What we loved about it: - Basket of fresh fruit, crackers and cheese, chips, wine waiting for us upon arrival (so we didn't have to rush out to get provisions the first evening). There were even packages of coffee in the freezer for the next morning's cup of coffee. So thoughtful! - Beautiful, beautiful grounds - landscaping, pool, patio, bacci court (yes!) - Well designed and decorated interior with dining table on the terrace overlooking Cruz Bay, kitchen open to the living area and wall of glass doors looking out onto the terrace and the bay. - Loved the two master suites - no "fighting" over the nicer bedroom -- with the en suites and open showers. Really appreciated the high-end toiletries, the big towels, and the beach towels. - Great cooking facilities. We cooked breakfast every day and dinner 5 of the 7 days we were there - used the kitchen and the grill on the patio. Ate outside every morning/evening. - Loved the pool, sitting on the terrace, lounging in the sunshine. - Mike (property manager) recommended taking a bottle of wine and some bread and cheese up the trail behind the house to the top of the hill to watch the sunset. We did this several times and each time was a delight. - Located outside Cruz Bay, it was a quick and easy drive to and from the villa. We rented from Conrad rental, which allowed free parking in Cruz Bay at their location (at least they did the week we were there). What we hated about it: - Leaving"

  • Very Nice Villa with Great View and Convenient Location

    "We just returned from another wonderful visit to St. John. When picking a villa, I always make sure to find one with a great view (preferably facing west) and great outdoor spaces. Ylang Ylang did not disappoint. The very large outdoor living terrace and it's wonderful western view of the sea and St. Thomas was perfect. The house was clean, comfortable, easy, and very convenient to Cruz Bay (about a 3 minute drive). My two daughters shared the lower level bedroom while my wife and I stayed upstairs. After a day at the beach, we would all enjoy sitting in the lounge chairs at to corner of the terrace, sipping our drinks, while watching the wonderful sunsets...and the twinkling lights of St. Thomas. It was nice having Jim, the owner, right next door, and available to take care of any problems. While Jim's house is very close, the thick tropical vegetation provides a nice buffer, and our villa felt private. Overall, a great vacation and great villa to stay in."

  • We hope to return!!

    "My husband and I stayed here late September and aim to go back and take our adult daughters and their significant others to stay here because we loved it so much! Loved the location and the views were indescribably gorgeous from the decks. The house has great architectural features and is very well-equipped. We never even used the indoor showers...as the outdoor shower was comfortable, clean, and all we needed! Fernando had picked fresh starfruits right from their yard as a welcome treat for us! It was delicious! The landscaping and grounds are amazing eye-candy! We rented our Jeep at St.Thomas airport and ferried over to Cruz Bay. Went to Star Market and liquor store before driving over to Coral Bay. There is a small market and some liquor available in Coral Bay but we encourage you to plan ahead and stock up some prior to leaving Cruz Bay. It will take about 1 hour to drive across the island. I do recommend people do NOT attempt to arrive in the dark and in the rain if you've never driven the island before and are unfamiliar with the roads and driveway entrance-- thankful for Fernando helping direct us out of our little predicament and that we were in a four-wheel drive Jeep! We did have a little trouble getting the A/C unit in our bedroom to cool the room and it was an adjustment to adapt to the humidity, for us, but we got along pretty well anyhow because we were mainly in swimsuits the entire visit anyhow! Maybe we'll get the meet Dorothy next year when we bring our family!?"
