Island Bliss at Hart Bay Ridge

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a perfect vacation with my husband and our four adult children at Hart Bay Ridge. We cannot say enough about this beautiful property! It was absolutely perfect for our needs, just as described on the listing, but the descriptions and photographs do not capture the beauty or functionality of the property.

The house is a custom-built home with every possible convenience. The kitchen was very well equipped and we ate several meals on the deck overlooking the expansive view. Games, beach equipment including coolers, umbrellas, Beach chairs, and beach towels were included. Anything that you can hope to make your vacation more convenient and comfortable is there for your enjoyment.

We only used the air-conditioner in the bedrooms at night, but even that was not needed often with all the cool breezes.

The house had many custom features that made staying there at treat for all of us, such as an open shower in the master suite, Beautiful woodwork, and lovely furnishings. Appliances were in good condition and worked well, and there is a nice quality gas grill near the pool as well.

But the view was the best feature of all. The entire length of the home opens to views of Hart Bay, Chocolate Hole, St. Croix and Saint Thomas... such a beautiful place to have your evening meals or your morning coffee.

It was a 10 minute ride to Cruz Bay where restaurants, groceries, and shops were located. North shore beaches were a little farther away but an easy commute. We really appreciated the location as we felt that we had a private setting, but were convenient to everything.

Hilarie was amazing, meeting us at the grocery store upon our arrival and showing us around the property. She was always available for recommendations as needed and touched base with us during our stay to make sure all was going well.

Our entire family had a wonderful time and would easily return to this property again.

Our three generation family of 6 (2 grandparents, son and daughter-in-law, 2 grandchildren ages 10 and 13) had a wonderful time at Hart Bay Ridge. St John is always spectacular and this house makes it even better. The house was a perfect fit for our family. EVERYTHING was in working order. Hilarie and Jason were great hosts and quickly responsive to even the smallest of questions. This was our second visit to Hart Bay Ridge. There is no question. When we return to St John we know where we will want to stay.

Our family was blessed to have found such a beautiful home on the south side of St. John with easy access to all the island has to offer. Superb home with open island feel and plenty of space to unwind. Gorgeous views along the expansive porch overlooking the ocean below that provides ample shade to stay cool on hot days. The exterior landscaping and pool area were fantastic along with a high quality gas grill to cook fresh fish from The Fish Trap in Cruz Bay. Each bedroom is spacious and relaxing and spread out in the home from each other for privacy. The kitchen has every amenity that you could ever require a coffee maker, blender, pots and pans, cooking knives, etc... There was a full spice rack for your creations. Making the arrangements was easy and Hilarie assisted with our jeep rental. Any questions or concerns were promptly addressed however we really didn't have any issues since the home was great. As someone else noted, the end of the road is gravel and a bit bumpy but don't be alarmed since it keeps other people from adventuring to the home for privacy and once you make it to the home the first time it is not a problem. Going for walks down the road to boatmen point is nice and there is always the Easterly Trade Winds to keep you cool. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay on the island and would strongly recommend Hart Bay Ridge and working with Hilarie. Wifi throughout the home is great for teenagers. Excellent TV and satellite with Blu Ray in two spots in the home to watch movies or listen to music.

Hart Bay Ridge - Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year traveling to St. John for a week's winter escape. And this was our fourth vacation rental home -- it was the best one yet. The views from this home perched high up above Hart Bay are nothing short of spectacular. The standouts for this home are many. It is of superior construction and everything about the house, the pool and the grounds are high quality. The house is meticulously clean and extremely comfortable - there were five of us and there is plenty of room to spread out. The media room was the perfect place to watch the Oscars with a very large screen TV and surround sound. And the multi-zone WIFI worked perfectly.The lighting in and outside the house is fantastic and there is plenty of it! Ceiling fans throughout the house kept it plenty comfortable and we only used the air-condition in the beds a few nights. The kitchen is truly the most well stocked I've experienced in a vacation rental home - we have rented many. There are more dishes, pots, pans, glasses, cutlery and tools then you can possibly use. Nothing was missing and the cutting and chopping knives were sharp (a big thing and typically not the case in vacation rentals)! The appliances are all top-shelf -- KitchenAid and even a convection oven. There are plenty of pool toys, beach toys, chairs and coolers. The house has a secluded feeling (in a good way) although its only about a five minute drive to a good grocery store - St. John Market and five minutes more to downtown Cruz Bay. The last part of the road up to the house is unpaved (not unusual on St John) and we had rented a jeep and would recommend renting a jeep or other high clearance vehicle to handle the road. - But there is a large, paved driveway at the house - that makes up for the rutty road!

We enjoyed seeing lots of wildlife -- many birds including humming birds, iguanas, frogs, little lizards, bats and even a tarantula (turned up dead at the downstairs door). And "Stretch" the resident freshwater turtle who lives in the pond was a fun to feed and watch. Nights presented us with fantastic starry skies as there is very little ambient light to disrupt star gazing. We spent many evenings sitting on the pool patio watching the night sky. Hilarie, the owner, was wonderful to work with and very accommodating. We can't wait to return to this house next year - we all felt that we didn't need to look further for the perfect vacation rental for us on St. John.

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week's stay at Hart Bay Ridge with our adult children and two young grand children. The house is perfect for the many ages we had with space to spread out. The house is immaculate and very well maintained with a pool that sparkles and invites you to swim at all hours. Many extras are provided throughout the house to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. We ate many of our meals in at night since we had "little ones" with us and the kitchen is well supplied for cooking. Beautiful outside dining table on the porch for breakfasts and dinners with magnificent sunsets. Each day we packed a picnic for a different beach and coolers, ice packs, umbrellas, beach toys, towels and beach chairs were all readily available for our use at Hart Bay Ridge. Bed mattresses are extremely comfortable providing good support and the linens and towels are of high quality. We have rented on St. John before and not always found this to be the case. We could not have been happier with our stay. Hilarie is an excellent owner, manager and ambassador to the island. She provided many good suggestions before our arrival and was always prompt in her responses to our questions. Enjoy your stay here!

Great House with Perfect Views

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my husband and four children (ages 11,9,8 and 5) at Hart Bay Ridge recently. We had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed the home very much. The house has everything a family needs to live comfortably, plus lots of extras (pool toys, beach chairs, coolers etc.) When we arrived I found the house very clean and we had no problems while we vacationed. The views from the porch are amazing and though we spent most of out days at the beaches it was nice to come back to HartRidge and relax by the pool. Hilarie was wonderful to work with and I would recommend this home for anyone looking to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of St. John.
