"Plan on never wanting to leave! We absolutely loved it! The studio was just perfect! The view breathtaking! Fun to watch the Pelicans. Saw turtles, lots of fish, so bring your goggles and snorkel! Easy walk in the water to Megan's bay or even the other direction to some other small beaches. Very quiet, hardly new anyone else was there.
Enjoyed lunch the deck, although in the evening, just watch out for the few misquotes.
The small fridge is plenty of room, but it would have been nice if freezer was separate. You can only get a half a bag of ice in it.
And if you love boats...big boats...perfect spot to dream!
Defiantly would stay again! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place!"

"We just arrived home from our 6 night stay at Whispering Palms, and are already looking forward to going back. I can't say enough good things about the rental-clean, beautiful views,spacious, and centrally located (15 minute drive to either town or Red Hook). Joanne met us 5 minutes from the airport, making the trip back to the cottage easy for someone new to the area. She also gives great recommendations, and was always available to reach out to if help was needed. Great place for a wonderful trip."

"Secret Garden is Paradise... enough said!! One MUST experience this little piece of heaven! My family and my fiance and I traveled to this place I call Paradise for our wedding. We had not organized a thing and Werner and his staff were more than amazing! We had the wedding every woman (couple) dreams of! Werner treated me as a Queen and my family just the same! I can't thank Werner and his staff enough for a memory that was created for a life time! We arrived and everything was handled. Every detail was taken care of before you could think of it! The villa is breath taking. The view puts you in a trance. Listening to the waves crash day and night couldn't have better music! We visited St John's one day and snorkeled with the sea turtles. We went on a day boat excursion with Werner and our captain Fernando island hoping the British Isles. The water was so beautiful, just like bath or swimming pool water. We enjoyed the Rum and sun and water and excellent food continuously! What an amazing boat and day! I recommend the chef as he cooked us a fabulous breakfast the morning of our wedding! We were married at Megan bay beach at sunset and our photographer was amazing! Our minister told us our marriage certificate was only good for 1 yr so we have to return to renew it annually! We can't wait! Secret Gardens is truly Paradise and I recommend it for the comfort and enjoyment and memories that it brings! Like I said...Werner your amazing! Thank you so so much!! Memories were created for a lifetime! It was the dream wedding every woman (couple) dreams of! Perfection in every aspect! Paradise.... enough said!"

"Where to start? We needed a place to unplug and unwind and this was perfect! The view was amazing, like postcard amazing. The beach was rocky and rough and awesome for shell hunting. The path over to Neltjeburg Bay was AMAZING!!!! We used to live on island and I thought you had to go to St. John to see views like that while hiking, here it's in your own backyard. The best restaraunt on island (Thirteen) is right up the hill. We ate there once and then ordered a carryout our last night. The condo had everything you could need/want and then some. Very well stocked. The owner was prompt and went above and beyond. Was even willng to try to find us a car to borrow while there when our rental fell through. YOU HAVE TO HAVE A CAR. Preferably an SUV. Driving back and forth to different places we never took that same way twice (even when we tried:-)) and it was a great way to see ALL of the island. If you are wanted a base to island hop or explore everyday this is probably not the place for you. It's 45\60 minutes from Red Hook and 30 minutes to Charlotte Amalie. However if you are on vacation to sit, relax and take in postcard views of beach, palm trees and blue oceans, explore trails and private beaches, listen to waves hitting the shore lulling you to sleep, and not have to worry about if you left something at home, THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!! We have a 3 and 5 year old and I would have felt totally comfortable bringing them. The local kids were always out playing. I think kids would have a blast here. The locals were great. Friendly and willing to answer any questions but never once bothered us. We never even used to pool. Wifi worked great when we needed it."
