About John Dickson

Your hosts John and Linda have lived and worked on St. John for 10 years and love to share their knowledge of the island and the location of their favorite snorkle spots, hiking trails and best places to shop and eat.

Why John Dickson chose Fish Bay

Ocan View is the perfect get away located in the lovely valley above Fish Bay and has beautiful views and trade wind breezes.

It is just a short hop to Cruz Bay for dining or shopping. There is a long flat driveway with plenty of parking.

What makes this apartment unique

There are beautiful views from every room including the bathrooms.

Cool and comfortable sleeping, dining and just relaxing.

You will love it!

I do my best to spend at least one week to 10 days in St. John, VI, every year. This year I spent 8 days on this property and I can sincerely assure anybody that is a great place to spend a vacation. The house was immaculate clean, very well maintained and surpassed by far my expectations. The manager and his wife are top class pleople, very friendly and caring.

I highly recommend this place to anybody.

Amazing location and hosts

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing week. The property has amazing views and was clean well equipped. John and Linda went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The kids especially liked the fresh baked cookies and bread that Linda kindly made for us. I highly recommend staying with John and Linda. We will be back!

One of our best vacations ever.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your apartment villa. The deck and views overlooking Fish Bay were incredible. It was just the right size for two couples and the layout was perfect. The hosts John and Linda were very friendly and helpful. We also loved the special treats of cookies, bread and coffee that they surprised us with throughout our stay. John met us at the ferry and showed us to our jeep rental then guided us to the home through the roller coaster roads of St. John. We were very thankful for this as we have never been to St. John and most certainly would have gotten lost on those winding roads. The house was fully equipped including kayaks, snorkel gear, beach chairs, coolers, sunscreen, bugspray, etc.!!! If you didn't see something, just ask John because he probably has it for you to use. We fell in love with this small quaint quiet island and hope to return whenever our time and budget allows.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about our stay! John and Linda are wonderful hosts that offered helpful and interesting information about the island. We so loved the yummy homemade treats from Linda! The villa has everything a family needs for a comfortable stay. We had 2 couples and two older kids with us. Our kids were perfectly comfortable using the air mattress and couch while the adults each had their own space at opposite sides of the villa. Thank you John for the use of all the snorkeling equipment and the laundry facilities we loved that added benefit.

This was our 2nd stay with John and Linda over the last 4 years and when we left my husband said we'd definitely come back and stay again! Yea!

A 6-Star Review! Wonderful Accommodations and Value

  • 5 of 5

If only we could give 6 stars! A great 2 bedroom apartment with beautiful views, great linens, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, buffeting ocean breezes and/or A/C. There was extensive snorkel equipment that we used every day. Property managers John and Linda have to be the kindest, most helpful couple on the island. We had never been to St John nor met John and Linda, yet John sent maps and provided information about where to rent a car, eat out, buy groceries, snorkel, etc., that saved us time and many wrong turns. Linda is a world-class baker - she shared delicious cookies and bread that were real treats after a day at the beach. Can't imagine a better jumping off point for all of the adventures St. John has to offer and just a quick ride into Cruz Bay for restaurants etc. We plan to stay here when we return!

Wow! Perfect vacation spot on St. John

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on St. John, and staying in this lovely home was the perfect base for all of our adventures. The house sits high above Fish Bay with great views, and is quite close to town or to other places on the island. John and Linda are the most amazing hosts! The house was completely outfitted with everything we needed, and they even had snorkeling equipment and kayaks for us to borrow. John picked us up at the ferry dock, we stopped to get provisions, then he drove us to the house. He helped us pick up our rental car the next day (you need a 4-wheel drive on St. John!), and we went to a locals' holiday party with John and Linda. Linda is a fabulous baker, and we loved her pumpkin bread and cookies.

As wonderful as St. John is, it was made so much better by these fun, informative and caring hosts. Can't wait to stay there again!

Two thirds of St. John is protected forever as a US National Park and huge areas of the surrounding waters are Coral Reef National Monument. A truly special place. The apartment is located overlooking Fish Bay, a quiet rural valley just 10 minutes from Cruz Bay and another 10 minutes from the fabulous North Shore Beaches.
