A two couple gem!
This is a great villa for two couples. Entry opens into a very large great room with a living room/tv area, a complete kitchen with eating counter and a corner dining table for six. This area is flanked on each side by perfectly equal bedrooms with comfy beds, big closets with hangars galore, and huge bathrooms with walk-in showers.
The kitchen is well equipped and stocked with lots of things like salt, pepper, spices, condiments and the like that we VRBO users hate to have to buy because we never use them up.
There is a small guest bath and out back is a lovely covered dining area with a table for six and comfy chairs. Great place to spend a rainy morning—yes it sometimes rains on St John! Each bedroom also has a small private patio with table and chairs. There is a decent view out back of Chocolate Hole and the surrounding hills.
7 minutes from the Cruz Bay ferry dock
Approach road typical for the island-get a Jeep
Could park two cars if necessary
Quiet and private
First class management; good communications and accurate info
Great A/C in the bedrooms; great cross breeze in the living room
We would cheerfully stay here again. It is well located and while not cheap is very fairly priced as the overall quality of the experience is as good as it gets. You will most assuredly be pleased.
Samba Azul is a wonderful home. It is very comfortable. The view is incredible and the pool is nice especially after the beach. We have been to Saint John many times. We only needed to contact James a couple of times but he always responded quickly.
One thing that would be helpful would be a book telling details about the house and things about the island like grocery stores and restaurants.
A wonderful spot for a vacation. We will be back.
Great Time in St John!
Absolutely loved the house! Great location, super clean, maintained and equipped... really beautiful property and a great stay. Friendly, easy to deal with management. Highly recommended!!
Loved Samba Azul-great place for couples
Samba Azul was the perfect base to come back to after long days of snorkeling. We really enjoyed the house and pool. There were 4 of us-2 couples-and the way the house is laid out (living room and kitchen in the middle/bedrooms & bathrooms to the left and right) was perfect for us. It was nice to be able to wash clothes while there. It was nice to be able to sit by the pool after a long day of snorkeling. It takes a little bit to get to there, I would suggest dropping a pin at your location at the house to help driving to different St. John spots easier.
James has pretty much anything you'd need in a kitchen, I even saw a crockpot! Beach towels, bath linens, beach chairs, hair dryers are all there at the house. The wifi worked great for us.
Only thing I noted about this property (and to James himself) was that checkout time listed on HomeAway is 11:00AM, it's actually (it was for us Jan. 2020) 10:00AM. You'll see that noted on a little sign on the desk in the kitchen.
We really enjoyed this house, and if we ever get back to St. John, we'd rent it again. Cannot say enough good words about how clean and nice the house was. James was a great host, he accompanied us from Starfish Market to the house, got us settled in, and let us be for the duration of our vacation.
Super clean house and has everything you would need for the week.. great location and beautiful view
