About James & Tara Overton
I was born in South Dakota. At a young age my parents introduced me to Virgin Islands on a family vacation trip. I fell in love with Caribbean blue water and the serenity of the islands. I have lived on all three islands for 31 years. I chose St. John to be my home as the island optimized what I had always dreamed about living in a tropical island with a beautiful white sand beach, tradewind breezes and amazing views. I was one of the contractors to joined and completed Westin hotel resort in St. John and Ritz Carlton in St. Thomas. I had fulfilled my dream by building Mandavilla Properties ( Ylang Ylang, Ginger Thomas, Mandavilla Rose, Alexandra Cottage and The Mandavilla) with an amazing views and location. Today I enable to share this beautiful piece of island with you.
James & Tara Overton purchased this House in 2006

Our second time renting from The Overton’s. We wouldn’t rent from anyone else.
The villa is centrally located to Cruz Bay. The owners Tara and James are fabulous. Their attention to detail is very telling to how much they care about their renters experience. The sweeping views make it easy to wake up early and enjoy coffee on the patio. We can’t wait to come back.
Fun in the sun
James and Tara are great people! The Villa has a great view and all items needed to enjoy your stay. If something comes up, James and Tara will do what it takes to make sure you have a great stay. Enjoyed the week
This vacation had everything we look for!
Wonderful accommodation with incredible balcony, views and plunge pool. Very helpful owners. Incredible beaches and trails. Amazing marine and land wildlife. Good food. Don't know how we can top this wonderful vacation.
Beautiful morning view and even better sunset!
My family of 4 and my parents visited St. John for the first time and were not disappointed. The view from the property is breath taking. Its a very short ride into the center of town (others said they walked we were not so ambitious but I suppose its about as close as you can be and still have a wonderful view from above). As a first timer I did not know to ask but was thrilled that Ylan Ylang has a back up generator... apparently power outages are not uncommon in St. John and we did lose power during our stay thankfully the generator immediately came on so we didn't miss a beat. I would absolutely stay at any of the Mandavilla Properties again. My cousin joined us and stayed in Alexandra cottage which is delightful! For us the common living area was too warm to sleep (as we are accustomed to) so Tara graciously provided a VERY COMFORTABLE air mattress for our 2 younger children that we set up in our bedroom so this was not an issue. I have used VRBO in the past and have yet to have any problems, that being said Tara and Jim were very hands on owners which was very nice. They thought of everything from a bluetooth speaker for outside to kitchen essentials to coolers and ice packs for the beach. The place is very clean and the beds are comfortable. Cruz Bay for us has it all: it's close to the ferry, grocery stores, dining, and shopping as well as having a great view and being close to our favorite beaches (Trunk, Maho, and Cinnamon Bay). All in all it was a wonderful vacation I wouldn't change a thing and we hope to be back again soon. Thank you Tara and Jim for sharing your home with us!
Perfect! The best view. Enjoyed cooling off in pool.
Very nice and quiet with awesome view of Cruz Bay!
We stayed at Ylang Ylang for 5 beautiful days in July. This is our third trip to St. John and we've found the perfect place to stay at again and again. Ylang Ylang was total perfection. The location and it's proximity to Cruz Bay was ideal but you still feel like you're completely removed from the hustle of the area. The home is updated and modern with everything you will need for your time in St. John. Our daughter loved having her own private pool to play in after the days at the beaches. The view is to die for and we loved spotting all of the iguanas hiding out in the trees. We will definitely be booking Ylang Ylang every year! Thank you for sharing this wonderful home with us.
