"We were so fortunate to celebrate our 25th anniversary here! First trip to St John . Susan, the property manager... Who is so awesome sweet... picked us up, rain soaked, from the docks without hesitation into her beautiful suv to take us to the condo and showed us around Cruz Bay to show us the " lay of the land" before taking us "home"
( Thank you Susan ! I might have made us walk! Hahaha!)
From the moment we walked in, we felt quite at home with the beautiful furnishings and obvious love and care that the owners have put into this place!
You really will need nothing but your clothes! The kitchen is truly stocked with beautiful dishes / pots & pans, etc... Exactly as described online, the pictures are awesome, but much more beautiful in person!!!! Every night we were treated to wonderful live music on the balconies, from Cruz Bay, but at a comfortable volume ( couldn't hear inside at all) and shooting stars from the sky above! The sunsets are amazing, as well as the rainbows from early morning showers....
What could possibly be better!!!!
All of the beat resterants,snorkel & boat charters within a block or two... Thank you Cruz bay sports, Bad Kitty Charters,
And St John Provisionig.... All were great!
This Condo is truly a piece of heaven!
Comfort, and views unsurpassed!
Can't wait to return!!!! Thank you Jackie for being so accommodating with all of the questions, guidance, and for sharing your lovely home with us!"

"My boyfriend and I decided to take our January vacation in Costa Rica. Not only was this our first time traveling to CR, but also our first time using VRBO. We were very nervous but we had no issues using VRBO and we got our full deposit back the day we left the property-so if you have any concerns, don't!
When choosing our property, we wanted a mix of good tourist area where we would feel comfortable with things to do but without the super touristy resort like feel. With this property and area, I feel like we accomplished that! The night we arrived, Franklin showed us to the property. Both him and Ricardo are very nice and accessible. Whenever we contacted Ricardo, either before or during our trip, he was very quick to respond via phone call or email! He was also very helpful with recommending things to do etc.
The house itself is also great- it is located in a gated area, which made me feel safe and secure. A car is definitely needed for this property, preferably a 4 wheel drive or SUV (something with some clearance) as the roads in CR are not all fully paved. We managed fine with a sedan but would have felt better in an SUV, especially in the rain. (Also, most activities and such are definitely driving distance) The house was great with a master bedroom/bath and deck upstairs; another bedroom/bath downstairs; kitchen with utensils/bowls/etc; another deck off the living room which is gives you amazing sunset views!
The nearby town Nuevo Arenal (5 minute drive) has a grocery store, a bank and numerous restaurants with CR food, Italian, American and German food (so a great variety). The Windcatcher and German bakery were great breakfast spots. Los Platillos, Moyas and Tinajas (Tinajas is 5 min out of town on the lake) are great for lunch and dinner!
As far as activities, we drove to La Fortuna (35 minute drive) to see the waterfalls, go zip lining, hot springs, hanging bridges and hiking.
DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this property with Ricardo!"

"This place has some of the most amazing and breath taking views. I had to take a picture every morning as the sun rose over the ocean. Our family stayed here for our summer vacation. When we arrived the manager showed us around the cottage, beach and helped us get familiar with places to eat and things to do around. They have this cool book they made and also a tour guide book which we took around the Island, this was helpful. The location was great. We wanted to be in a more secluded beach and this place was great. For the most part we had the beach to our self we also got to see some turtles in the water. The back yard was great, we had a BBQ and the kids got to run around and play. I love that the beach was right there, we would get in the water swim, go eat and come back for some more beach time. The view from our bed was amazing, waking up and seeing the ocean made it all worth it. As far as the kitchen goes they had everything we needed to cook for our family meals. That saved us some money, I do recommend that you go shopping at Costco or Sam's club, food is more expensive there. I would recommend this place, we are already planning our next trip here."
