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 the Caribbean warm blue water and the serenity of the islands. I have lived in all thee islands for 31 years. I chose St. John to be my home as the island epitomizes what I had always dreamed about living in a tropical island with a beautiful white soft sand beach, tradewind breezes and amazing views. I was one of the contractor to joined and completed Westin Hotel 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 Mandavilla ) with an amazing views and location. Today I enable to share this beautiful piece of island with you.

James & Tara Overton purchased this villa in 2006

Beautiful Villa With Amazing Views!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated his 41st birthday at the Mandavilla Rose. It was definitely our best vacation so far. The villa is absolutely beautiful and very well kept. The views are unbelievable. The location was perfect with restaurants, bars, market and beach located right at the bottom of the hill. Because the villa sits up on a hill we rented a car. The sunset views every evening from the patio made it feel like paradise. James and Tara were very sweet and quick to respond throughout the entire process. I give this property an easy five stars. We will definitely be back!

From our 1st contact with Tara to the day we left was exceptional. She was quick to respond to my emails prior to the trip and once we arrived on St John she met us near the ferry and we followed her to the home. We needed an extra set of sheets for the pullout couch on our first night and she was quick to run them over even though it was after 8 oclock!!! The house was perfect for my wife and i and our 11 and 13 year old kids. The pictures are accurate and the house had everything you could need for cooking in the kitchen or just watching the tv or listening to the radio. We brought our Roku with and could easily stream Netflix and Amazon movies. The pool was excellent and the views were incredible. Grilling steaks on the deck was perfect!! The location is perfect as it is a short drive down the hill to Cruz Bay for groceries but still felt far enough away from it all!!! Overall, i would highly recommend Mandavilla Rose for a small family or couple and we enjoyed our 3 day stay. On a sidenote for newcomers to the island of St John, the roads are VERY VERY steep and winding, down right scary at times but after a day you will get used to them, the views and the beaches are definately worth the drive!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Tony for your feedback on our property and the island of St John in general. I agreed with you the island is steep reminds me of San Francisco in some parts but very scenic and full of natural beauty. We glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

Fantastic Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at this wonderful villa. It was beautifully and tastefully decorated and quite large. It's 4 sliding glass doors off the main living area led to a balcony giving spectacular views of the villa's pool and Cruz Bay. The villa was immaculately clean, well equipped and extremely comfortable. Jim happened to be on the same car barge and led us up to the property atop a high hill. A vehicle with good road clearance is recommended to really explore the island. The beautiful beaches are a short drive away and the town and its shopping and restaurants are at the bottom of the hill. Tara gave us a lot of tips on parking, the restaurants and food shopping. Jim and Tara were excellent to work with throughout the rental process and made everything so easy. We spent most of our time enjoying the beaches, snorkling and kayaking which were superb. Can't wait to be back and stay at Mandavilla Rose again--you can'go wrong.

Labor Day Weekend Trip to St. John

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I got married on Trunk Bay in St. John in April and decided to go back for a quick weekend getway over Labor Day weekend. Since it was just the two of us this time, we decided that staying in a one bedroom villa would work just fine. We do not enjoy staying in hotels anymore since we like the privacy of our own place, as well as having a living room and fully equipped kitchen. Although the road up to Mandavilla Rose can be slightly challenging for some (bumpy and steep for walking in a few areas), we got used to it after the first night. Jim and Tara were very helpful and offered to take us into town which we really appreciated. Their place is so large and spacious and the private pool/deck area was perfect! And the view and sunsets there are beautiful and we wish we didn't have to leave. We appreciated their hospitality and will definitely stay there again on our next trip to St. John.

Best View in St. John!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing panoramic views overlooking Cruz Bay. Just minutes away from downtown to great shopping, restaurants, grocery, etc. but also nestled into lush landscapes giving you a very private feel. Fantastic pool & cabana, clean interior decor, fully equipped kitchen. We have been to St. John many times, were married on Hawksnest Beach (used both Ginger Thomas & Ylang Ylang for our Wedding Party) and have always stayed at Mandavilla Property villas, and will keep coming back. You cannot beat these views, villas, or this vacation destination - nothing compares!!!
