"We stayed at Villa Eau Claire with our 3 kids ages 10, 12 and 14. We had a wonderful time checking out the wildlife around the property: lizards, iguanas, pelicans diving for fish, schools of small fish being chased by larger fish, sea turtles, etc. All of which were visible from the balcony overlooking the wonderful blue Magen's Bay. No need for a pool because the water at the beach is perfect for swimming, wading, floating and snorkeling.
We walked to Magen's bay beach in the water and it was a fun adventure where we rented paddle boards for the kids. We took the ferry to St. John one day, went out on a fishing boat another day, rented snorkels at a dive shop and checked out Koki beach and Linquist beach for amazing snorkeling adventures. Lots of fun for the kids and plenty to do while also very relaxing for the adults. No matter what we did, it was such a treat to come back to the beautiful Villa Eau Claire! We relaxed on the deck and had cocktails on the beach and ate dinner each night on the balcony with the lights twinkling on the mountain across the bay and enjoyed checking out the different ships that would anchor there at night.
The property was incredible! We would open all the doors and feel the sea breezes, the views were like a dream, beds very comfortable (an air mattress was provided for our third child.) Julia gave us a great welcome at the airport, took us to the grocery store and got us settled upon arrival. She was cheerful and helpful during our stay. There were fresh flowers in a vase to welcome us to the beautiful home. Everything was immaculately clean and well maintained. We had a wonderful visit! Thank you!"

"There were six in our party - all family members attending my son's wedding. Although the villa is a little fr from some of the shopping and tourist attractions, one day on the road and we were experts at navigating the island. We quickly settled in, enjoyed the view and pool, and began enjoying the experience. Oh yes, we live in Honolulu so we're very familiar with paradise!"

"Whispering Palms was a magical place to stay for our week's vacation. Beginning with Joanne and Ken meeting us at the airport, our week couldn't have been better. It is a darling cottage, with the wrap around screened in living area and fabulous views of Magen's Bay, the ocean, and the surrounding hillsides. It's even more charming than the pictures show :-). The size was perfect for my husband and I (we enjoyed having the extra bedroom, but it could easily accomodate four people) and it was stocked with all the amenities we needed (towels, beach bags, full kitchen set up, linens,etc). We loved the openess and sense of being in nature. Having a parking spot was a bonus! It is also centrally located, we didn't have to drive too far to get to most anywhere we wanted to go.
Joanne was the most helpful person I have ever rented from, she went above and beyond whenever I had a question or needed help finding something. She even took us to the market before taking us 'home'. Her suggestions for food, recreation, transportation, and shopping were spot on. (Sib's for local flavor!) We definitely recommend this charming cottage and would gladly stay again."

Blue Sky was perfect for our family and quality time together
"This Villa was well furnished, tasteful, and perfect in providing opportunity to be together as a family while providing privacy which we all enjoyed. Shawna has done an excellent job of preparing and sharing a wonderful home with all the amenities that make the stay comfortable. The view and convenience of this villa are perfect for a family vacation. We hope to return and will recommend to other family and friends. Thank you Shawna and Debi. Megan's Bay and the Beach were wonderful."
