  • Fantastic vacation at Drake's View Villa

    "We loved Drake's View Villa! Our flights were running late and we were worried we may not be able to get our car. Fernando talked to the car rental company to make sure they'd hang around a little extra as we were running close to closing time. He was very helpful getting us up to the villa and answering questions. The villa is gorgeous. It is very well maintained and the views are spectacular. We used all 4 bedrooms and appreciated that they were all truly master bedrooms,each with big bed, attached bath, a/c and lovely walk out porches. The pool had great sun from 8am-4pm every day. We ended up there every day after our trips to the beaches. The kitchen had everything we could need, actually multiples of everything we could need. The owners really did think of everything. The location had a lovely breeze coming through which was nice as the temperatures hit 90 while we were there. It was short drive to all the North Shore beaches and a quick 10 minute hop down to Coral Bay. We highly recommend Drake's View and hope to stay there again."

  • exceptional hospitality, cottage and location

    "My wife and I were fortunate enough to stay here for 4 nights recently. Our trip was last minute and just by chance the owner, Catherine, had a cancellation. We couldn't recommend staying here highly enough. The cottage itself is beautiful, with wonderful privacy and incredible vistas. It is really appointed thoughtfully; the outside shower is great; you can shower under the stars or while overlooking the Caribbean. More importantly, Catherine does a few things that make a huge difference, especially upon arrival. She met us at the ferry, took us to get our rental car, to the supermarket and then led us to her property. The first night there she delivers dinner to you, while having stacked a bottle of win in the refrigerator and supplying a pound of coffee, milk, orange juice and granola. After traveling to get to St. John, these gestures, for us, really made a huge difference. We could relax the first night, not having to run out for food and were set for the next morning as well. The cottage itself is a wonderful place to be and Catherine's hospitality is completely unobtrusive and helpful. I should also note that there were very few bugs at night in this location, possibly due to the constant breeze and the location of the cottage itself.We felt lucky to get to stay there and hope to return. We would recommend it highly."

  • Awesome Vacay

    "My husband and I stayed here for 5 days in late May. What a wonderful retreat. Just what we needed. Nice pool, screened in porch and close to Coral Bay restaurants. We cooked breakfast at the house and would venture out for lunch and dinner. Why cook when you're on vacation? The bedroom is below the main living area and has an air conditioner, although the breeze from the water was refreshing and we never felt hot. The shower upstairs has a window to the deck (still private) and the breeze would blow through creating such a pleasant experience. The whole property is private and we never felt like we were being watched or could be seen. We visited Maho Beach but decided to head over to Francis Bay, which offered less people and traffic. We relaxed on the porch in the evenings with a cocktail then headed down the driveway and ate at Aquabistro every night. The food was so good and location was so convenient that we skipped plans to eat elsewhere. We took the Red Hook Ferry on arrival, which included a horrendous taxi ride. On our return to STT, we opted for the longer ferry ride to Char Amalie and shorter taxi. This is the way to go. We went to unwind and that's exactly what we did. Can't wait to return!"

  • Heaven's Gate

    "We've just returned from a week long stay at the aptly named villa "Heaven's Gate". The home and views were jaw dropping! The attention to detail and owners interest in making our holiday enjoyable were evident and greatly appreciated! Not only is the home beautiful but the landscaping is stunning! Gorgeous palm trees, bougainvillaea and orchids adorn the property! The home is blessed with trade winds making air conditioning unnecessary and reducing the possibility of problems with insects. We found everything to be very clean and in great condition (no wear and tear!). Heaven's gate has a well appointed kitchen and is well stocked with ample beach chairs, towels etc. While at the home, we spent most of our time outdoors enjoying the many beautiful and large veranda's. Josephine was a pleasure to work with and was kind and patient as I had many questions! Hugo was a wonderful host who was also so very kind and helpful! Thank you for the wonderful greens and coconuts! Such a treat! Heartfelt thanks for allowing us to enjoy your magnificent home! We hope to return to the islands soon and will be in touch!"
