George purchased this Condo in 2015
Why George chose Estate Enighed
We purchased this unit to own a piece of paradise, which st john definitely is even after tough Hurricane Irma. So much to do, the large national park that will never be helter skelter developed like st thomas (and we love st thomas). is it 34 beaches to explore? spend the day in the park or east end, then relax in Cruz Bay. Or get out on the water in a kayak, yacht, speed boat, snorkeling adventure, scuba certification: it goes on and on. we originally stayed at Maho Bay Camps, which was lost a few years back to an individual owner who closed the camps. our goal with Convivare was to provide an excellent short term rental property in a place, Conch Villas, that has incredible old era Danish charm and easy walking access to the Landing and restaurants. And now we can even book ourselves in there too!

Perfect spot to enjoy Cruz Bay area
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to St. John and our stay at the Conch Villa. We spent 4 nights there celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. The spot is close enough to Cruz Bay to walk with a few hills but not too bad at all. There is a great little bar on the walk towards the roundabout that had the coldest beer on the island, we stopped there a few times while we were out and about and its a little bit of a local spot and a great place to visit. I think it was called the hillside, it overlooks the tennis court by the car ferry lot. We didn't rent a car so we walked all over which was a great way to get around. You can walk to Cruz Bay and catch a cab anywhere you need to go. The nightlife in Cruz Bay was fun too, we don't usually get to partake in a lot of later night activities due to traveling with our kids but we were all alone on this trip so it was fun to be able to stay out later and enjoy the music and people watching. The villa is in a nice little neighborhood with a lot of other homes where people live full time, we met some nice neighbors when we walked around in the mornings. The villa was just what we needed, we bought a few groceries at Dolphin Market so we could prepare sandwiches for the beach or cook breakfast and enjoy on the screened in porch while we watched the car ferry come and go. I would absolutely stay here again, would be happy to bring our kids too as there is a pull out couch that could accommodate them. George and Kelly were responsive to any questions or concerns we had and Kelly had some good local info on the drive to the villa regarding where to get food or a good meal out. Thanks for the wonderful stay!
Excellent Cruz Bay trip
We really enjoyed staying in Conch villa. The location is far enough from the center to be quiet but close enough to be walkable. Its a neat place and the owner & mgr were very good to us. Hope to go back next year.
New Years in St John
The condo was cute and as described in the listing. The kitchen was well equipped but we only used it to make coffee and sandwiches and ate out or picked up food for most meals. There were some nice touches like shampoo, conditioner, soap, paper towels, coffee, and some condiments. The beach chairs were very nice. The cooler was a six pack playmate type. The snorkel gear wasn't in great shape so we rented our own in town for a very reasonable price for the entire time we were there. The air conditioners worked very well to cool everything off after we returned for the day which was helpful for sleeping. We enjoyed the sitting area facing the water view. This is a first floor unit so we did experience noise from the people above us when they walked around or moved furniture above us. Fortunately, that usually stopped about the time we were ready to go to sleep. We walked to dinner every night and it was less than a 10 minute walk. We chose to take the shortcut up and down the steep hill which saved about 5 minutes. Be aware that the first half of the walk is through a slightly industrial area as you pass the car ferry dock. It could be a bit intimidating if you don't know that St. John has a reputation for being a safe island. I personally wouldn't make the walk at night alone but with two of us it was fine. We definitely enjoyed the stay.
Perfect get away!
This place is perfect to get away and relax. Everything you could possibly need is at this property and the ocean view from the porch is amazing. Waking up to the sound of the surf everyday was a plus. Easy access to town and safari taxis to northern beaches. George and Kelly were very responsive to questions. I would definitely stay here again!
Great location and friendly management
Great spot walkable to all of Cruz Bay, great patio and kitchen if you want to eat in. George and Kelly were very easy to work with and made everything very simple for us. Fantastic stay, highly recommended!
