About Eric

We're Eric and Patrick and we moved from the Windy City (Chicago) to Love City (St. John)! After many trips to the Caribbean, and several to St. John, we knew that St. John just “felt right.” We connected with the pure beauty of the island, it’s people, it’s lifestyle, and that the U.S. flag flew above. Dreaming to escape the snowy winters of the Midwest and realizing that life is just too short, we finally decided it was time make the move. Seas the Day Villa is veteran owned and operated.

Eric purchased this villa in 2013

Why Eric chose Cruz Bay

We chose this location because it offers a killer view of the Caribbean sea, it's proximity to Cruz Bay but yet still far enough away, and a wonderful neighborhood.

What makes this villa unique

Our home is brand new construction that offers modern amenities. We are also completely solar powered to reduce our carbon footprint and provide clean, natural, power.

SURVIVED IRMA UNDAMAGED 1 Bedroom Studio with Optional Suite Add-On Seas the Day
average rating of 5.0 based on 49 reviews

Modern & comfortable base for exploring St John - with a killer view!

  • 5 of 5

Seas the Day was exactly what we were looking for - modern amenities & design, a comfortable king bed, a patio for breakfast and post-beach beverages, and a view that's even better than what you can see in the pictures (be sure to step out in the yard for a great view of waves crashing onto a beach below!). I'm an AC lover and even while following the owners' conscientious energy-savings instructions carefully I was perfectly comfortable and slept like a rock. The location is convenient to town with groceries only a few minutes away and a very quiet neighborhood for escaping the craziness of Cruz Bay when you want some peace.

In short, this is likely the only spot we'd ever stay on St. John!

This was our 1st time staying in St. John & it was perfect for our 8 day stay. Eric & Patrick's bedroom studio was in a beautiful quiet area over looking the bay. The accommodations were VERY clean, WELL maintained, VERY comfortable, with a spotless well equipped kitchenette and an outside patio area We truly appreciated all their help with jeep rental right down to what beaches to go to, places to eat & excursions to take. I would not hesitate to book this property again.

Lovely villa/setting for our honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

Seas the Day is just beautiful! The size of the villa was perfect. We loved the patio with ocean views, and enjoyed breakfast there every morning, with lovely fresh breezes. The rooms were immaculate, bright and airy. The temperature in the villa was easily controlled with fresh air, the ceiling fan, or AC if needed. It was a great location...near Cruz Bay but very private. Eric was an amazing host!

Perfect Place in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Seas the Day was exactly as advertised. Clean, modern, tucked away from the hustle and bustle, but within a quick drive to Cruz Bay. Patrick and Eric were incredible hosts. They met us at our car rental place to make sure we found their place easily, they gave us great dining recommendations, and even shared some limes from their lime tree with us. We were sooooo glad we didn't settle for staying on the touristy St. Thomas. Seas the Day was truly a little slice of Paradise. We loved eating out on the balcony for breakfast, and grilling out for dinner. It's the perfect spot for couples. We would definitely go back. If you want to relax and have an amazing stay on St. John, book Seas the Day and start counting down the days.

The apartment is wonderful! Very clean, well appointed, quiet, great views from the patio.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property. It's very well kept, private, and has incredible views of nearby hills and sea. It was nice to have a private patio area to enjoy breakfast and late afternoon snacks/drinks outside. The location of the property is excellent too. It's very close to grocery stores and less then 10 minutes into town. There are beaches all over the island so it's hard to say how far those are, but the furthest one was less than an hour. Eric was very helpful--orienting us to all things St. John. They were very informative and friendly hosts. I would recommend this property to all.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Patrick and Eric for sharing your home. My husband and I had the best vacation of our lives. The room was perfect. Every detail was taken into account - a comfortable bed, great towels, guide books, tv, air-conditioning, coolers, beach chairs, kitchen and most of all the view. We enjoyed seeing the hummingbirds and occasional deer on the property. Thank you both for your hospitality. We enjoyed meeting you and will most definitely wish to stay here again.
